I basically started Janakya Mottainai on a whim. I’ve been listening to Japanese music for years, but I didn’t have anyone to directly talk about Jmusic with. When I started listening to Jmusic I was a complete Jrock purist. Listening to only a handful of Jpop artists, and very little H!P. But over the years my Jrock obsession was put on the back burner to focus on my new H!P obsession.
As I started following H!P more closely, and joined H!P forums, I started to develop lots of opinions about the music/girls. I wanted a place to talk about what I thought of the music, and get out all my fangirlish feelings. However, when I started JM I had every intention of making this a Jpop blog. But my love for H!P kind of ruined that. I found myself more focused on H!P, and only posted other Jpop related news every once in a blue moon.
Since I made JM I was exposed to a lot of other idol groups. The first idol group I got exposed to was NEWS. Which I actually didn’t find out about through blogging. Rather, I foud it through a dubbing group I was in. I immediately fell in love with them. And in turn fell in love with Johnny’s Entertainment. I found out about JE about 1 year after I found out about H!P. So, obviously H!P and JE are my favorite idol agencies, and have some of my favorite idol groups. And I might have some slight biases for them.
And through blogging about idols, and reading other blog about idols, I found out about more idol groups then I even realized existed. I was a little reluctant at first, but I gradually did realize the idol groups outside of H!P and JE are just as amazing as the groups within them. Which made me expand the content of JM beyond a H!P and JE centric blog, to one that covers idols in general. However, I would also love to expand JM ever more. So, feel free to suggest any group you would like me to cover. But keep in mind, I prefer to only cover major idols. There are just too many indie idols to cover and worry about. Unless they are Afillia Saga East, I don’t think anyone can ignore this group.
I’m the writer of this blog Amy, or more commonly known on the internet as Aim Aim. I’m pretty much an average 20 year old girl living in New Jersey, who just happens to love Japan and Japanese music. Aside from Japanese music I love all foreign music in general. I listen to music in Japanese, Korean, Chinese, French, German, and Spanish. And I listen to pretty much every genre of music that exists.
In my free time I like to spend endless hours on the computer, write, listen to music, watch movies, sing, and go out with friends. I’m also in the process of teaching myself to speak German and Japanese, as well as trying to learn the overall pronunciation of Chinese and Korean.
And just for fun here’s a picture of me. :]
