Introducing



Angela Aki

This is Angela Aki, one of Japan's newest rising J-pop stars and I am happy to introduce her to any fans of Japanese music that have not yet heard of this wonderful girl! She sings beautifully, with passion and feeling. She's pretty good on the ol' ivory keys too! I just love her songs even if I can't understand them completey.(not yet fluent in the forbidden language that is "Japanese" (^_^) She has a great version of the song "Never is a Promise" along with many other great songs like her last single "Home". She's also did a song for the next Final Fantasy game. If your into Japanese music or just great music in general and would like to give her a listen, you can hear samples of her music at her website.

heh, thanks tsuji, langdon. Jpop is cool, I like it much better then american pop. some of it is confusing though. translations I mean. Some songs seem to be a collection of random lines put together. Each line had nothing to do with the last. I wonder if I'm missing something in the translation and it makes perfect sense to a japanese speaker.

Yeah that's pretty much the case. You have to look at the nihongo words in the context they're being used. In most cases fansubbers only strive for about an 80% accuracy in translations. Even in my own attempts at translating I found myself being confused. We are missing something that's pretty much a given.

I was trying to figure out where I saw Angela Aki before and then I remembered that they showed a clip of her video on an episode Yaguchi Hitori not too long ago..
