Aside from writing another of my first loves is music. I’m a massive rock fan, specifically JRock so for my first Music Monday post I’m going to share with you all a song by my favourite band L’Arc~en~Ciel.
The song I have chosen is Anata and the performance is taken from their live at Madison Square Garden, New York, USA on 25th March 2012. This song holds special meaning for me as I went to the London live of the World Tour on 11th April 2012. It was my favourite performance of the night as it brought everyone together sharing the love for the band. I’ve been to quite a few live concerts over the years but the L’Arc live at the indigo o2 is definitely my favourite overall.
First post are always awkward aren’t they! It’s difficult to know how to start and what to say! So I thought I’d start with a bit about me.
I’m Shari Sakurai, a self-published author from the United Kingdom. I mainly write horror, sci-fi and fantasy fiction although I have been known to dabble in other genres from time to time too. I’ve recently published my first novel, Demon’s Blood, which is available to purchase in ebook format. You can find more information about it on my website www.sharisakurai.com.
I’m a fan of all things Japanese, especially the music, anime and manga and am going to Japan for the first time next year! My music taste varies quite a bit, my favourite artists/bands are L’Arc~en~Ciel, VAMPS, HYDE, GACKT, BUCK-TICK and D to name a few! I also listen to Nightwish, Within Temptation, Evanescence, The Killers, Eric Stuart Band, We Are The Fallen and Tokio Hotel – see I told you it was varied!
I love the 90’s anime, and Sailor Moon and Fushigi Yuugi are two of my favourites. I’m also currently watching Tiger & Bunny and am really loving the series so far. My favourite manga (apart from Sailor Moon and Fushigi Yuugi) is Loveless.
I also like collecting merchandise and currently collect Sailor Moon, Pokemon, and tour goods from my favourite artists. In addition I have rather a large Monster High and My Little Pony collection!
I love attending lives and have seen a few of my favourite groups/artists live in the UK or in Paris.
So that’s a bit about me! This blog will contain posts to do with my fandoms, and things that interest me, as well as news of my novels and anything else that might be of interest!
