The A to Z of me: (A)

I thought I would let everyone know a little more about me, and I love a good rant/typing for England about pretty much nothing in particular. So a little more about me...

(A) is for Asia.

Ever since I can remember I've always been interested in Asian culture. It mainly began with my older brother introducing me to comic books/manga and niche video games when I was around 12. Since then it developed into this wide obsession of mine!

One of the first movies I ever saw was Battle Royale at around the age of 13 I think. This was the most amazing movie I had ever seen and I knew I needed to get more of this in my life! My favourite movies have always been horror so it seemed a natural progression to lead me into watching Japanese horror movies such as the Grudge. This then opened my eyes to Korean and Chinese movies, and I've never stopped.


Asian music. I'm a massive fan of Asian music. K-Pop/J-Pop the works. I think I discovered music through listening to singers on video games and such like. My favourite artists are Mika Nakashima, HyunA, BoA, Ayumi Hamasaki and 4Minute.



I adore Asian street fashion too. It's something about the style of how well people over there are dressed that blows my mind. And their models are super cute! I also love Harajuku fashion and anything lolita and cute is right there for me! I am equally obsessed with cute figures such as Hello Kitty, and pretty much anything cute and Korean.


This leads me on to video games. My ultimate fangirl experience. Anything produced in Asia definitely has my vote. I love RPG and Survival Horror games and my favourite ones have been Final Fantasy X and Clock Tower 3.



Lastly but not least of all, manga. I normally like to read a good book but when I can get into a really good series of manga I really enjoy it. My favourite of all time is Nana, which was made into an anime and then live action movie which starred Mika Nakashima! Even more fangirl action going on there.



I hope this gives a little more of an insight into my adoration for Asian culture!

  2. Asian films are TOO SCARY!!! I think they're excellently plotted, genuinely inventive etc but they're just too fricken scary. And twisted. And make me have nightmares! Weep xx

  4. A great post, after reading this and your 50 facts it seems we have a LOT in common! Nana is a gorgeous manga, it's my joint favourite with Bunny Drop. And J-pop is fab! Do you like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu? Or Anna Tsuchiya? They are my favourites! x
