I have been joining in this Challenge for 2 months and realized that I haven’t made an introduction for this challenge yet…Shame on me!!
This challenge is all about Japan.
I love almost everything about Japan.
My love for Japan 1st came from Manga…I love reading Manga, especially Shounen Manga. My favorite Manga of all time is Onepiece by Eiichiro Oda.
Then I encountered Dorama and it is waaay better than meaningless Indonesian Sinetron…I fell in love with dorama the minute I saw Anything For You. I like a lot of Dorama and had made review for some of them (mostly written in Indonesian but I’ve been writing in English lately).
And after that, I started paying attention to almost everything about Japan. I fell deeply in love with L’Arc~en~Ciel, the greatest band in Japan (at least for me). I learn Nihongo… jibun de bekyoushimasu kara atashi no nihongo wa amari jyozu jyanai desu. I ate some of Nihon Ryouri, as long as it is still Halal (allowed by my religion). I also love Haruki Murakami’s books and many other Japanese writers.
So…when I found this mini challenge, I haven’t got the slightest hesitation to join in
