StyleJapan is a blog about everything in relation with Japanese pop and rock music, focusing on music reviews. As for the system of rating, below is the five-star system. Half a star may be added or removed depending on whether the song seemed to lack something or have something special.

= Extremely Good, Perfect

= Very Good

= Good

= Average

= Could have been better

= Absolute turn-off

MeMy name is Noah, and I live in Montréal, the second-largest city of Canada (we only have three large cities, so it’s not too big…), nonetheless it is the best (Toronto is like a cheap imitation of New York without the feel and it rains way too much in Vancouver). Needless to say, I love Japan, and ranking on place #2 is graphic design (books and websites, not clothes (hence graphic design, as many ignore)!). I am fifteen years old and go to Secondary 4 (which is grade 10 in the rest of Canada). As a resident of the province of Québec, my education has been so far entirely French, but my family speaks English. I am in my fourth year of learning Japanese at the Japanese-Canadian Culture Center of Montreal, and, as you might guess, I am the youngest. Although I cannot speak or read fluently, I master Hiragana and Katakana, and know over 200 kanji, and if you give me the translations to certain words that I do not know, I can translate entire texts (the grammar is rather simple). A little info:

Favorite Artists: Utada Hikaru, alan and L’Arc-en-Ciel (yes, my taste is very eclectic)

Hobbies: tennis, listening to and singing great music (if I get a microphone and audio editing software I may eventually release a cover album, if), writing novels, designing whatever I feel inspired to design, blog-hopping, learning Japanese and just languages in general.

    I’ll add you.
    Lucky for being able to understand Japanese.
    I hate being in Japanese II.
    I’m honestly learning little to nothing. I think i may just get rosetta stone.

    Noah~ Thanks for linking our blog. I returned the favour :). Montréal better than Toronto? No wai XD *TOTALLY BIASED THOUGH*. (It also doesn’t rain THAT much in Vancouver :P).

    Hehe yeah, Tsuki and I are both Canadians. I haven’t actually been to Montreal for awhile (the last time I was there was two years ago, and I only stopped at the airport to transfer flights some small town for a French program thing XD), so I can’t say much about that :P. I don’t have any family that lives there anymore, so I don’t have an excuse to go, but it’ll be a good excuse to practice speaking French (I’ve studied French for a lot of years, but my French is still terrible XD).
