A new year and a new beginning. Hope everyone had a good new years. Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!!(Happy new year!! in Japanese)
So throughout the winter break I was able to finish the anime: Seirei no Moribito and Ga-rei Zero. They were both great story of different genre. I was able to finish watching the drama Ryuusei no Kizuna(was very good). I went through a NDS game obsession by playing different Japanese games. I was addicted to ouendan and taiko drumming for a while. Awaiting for winter season anime but I will keep the viewing @ the minimum.
Kohaku Utau Gassen for 2008 was on the last day of December. I didn't get to see it on TV but i saw some clips on-line. It's a good show. A ton of famous Japanese singers divide into white and red team and they perform their hits of 2008 and some classics. There are variaty of music from pop to enka (traditional Japanese music). They even did a recognition section to the director Hayao Miyazaki.
