I haven’t really heard the song, just found it by checking up on the Hajimete Hajimemashite post – Truly a surprise to find that they have changed the song on their site.

Also, testing out a really useful tool I found. A romanization (or transliteration) tool. In Japanese, it can only read Hiragana and Katakana, though… so it might not be much help reading something like a whole website or lyrics to songs using Kanji, but it sure helps reading simple Japanese to those us lazy like me.

Hey, guys~ Am watching Ep11 at this moment. I think this might be my last post on Dancing with the Stars, for obvious reasons, non? Well, I do hope you voted for Marlee because 7 votes is a lot. Last Monday’s episode had a few cute and funny moments with Marissa Jaret Winokur, Cristian de la Fuente, and Kristi Yamaguchi.

Marissa always makes me smile, lol… with comments like she’s “more like a moth,” in response to being like a butterfly for the Viennese Waltz, and her flipping out with her scores. And her saying that she’s only seen 9s in rehearsals, pretending… ha!

And I enjoy the Latin American and Asians representing… Kristi rocked it with her Jive, and her flipping out was funny too.

Won’t upload videos this time, but will post captures of favorites:

Lyrics in Japanese from the NHK with clear audio.

Here’s the romaji:

When my family first got cable, I remember watching NHK. Now, as a person who doesn’t speak Japanese at all, and being a Japanese wannabe… the only programs I could actually follow sans subtitles were kid shows. One of them is the long-lasting Okaasan to Issho, which apparently began showing on October 5h, 1959. I think the first time I saw the show was in 1999… or I could be wrong and be 1998. Anyway, if you don’t know about it… it’s like hmm, Menudo meets Sesame Street, but for really really small kids. I’m guessing 2-3 years old. The show has been inventing and re-inventing itself throughout the years. Changing life-size-puppets, and hosts in their many years. Continue Reading…
