Here are the reviews/blurbs I've received so far:
“Loved it! Really original. It really is a Japanese HARD DAY’S NIGHT with a ghost story twist.” - Stephen David Brooks(Award Winning Director "Flytrap.")

My good friend Santa tells me that he thinks Children With Incurable Diseases Charity (難病のこども支援全国ネットワーク)  is one of the best and most respected and reputable children’s charities in all of Japan.

Mike (in Tokyo) Rogers' Top 50 Best Songs of 2016 マイク・ロジャースの2016年のトップ50曲(1から50の順番リスト!)




These are my favorite songs and/or something from my favorite artists of the year. These are just my favorite 50 as I placed on the weekly Top 3 Video Countdown (http://robot55.jp/?s=top+3). There are also 5 songs included this year from the Cool & Strange Music Countdown too! (http://robot55.jp/?s=cool+%26+strange+music) Now, some of these songs were not released in 2016...  But so what? I play alternative and underground stuff so this year was the first time I had heard them and it's my countdown, so there! Also, these songs were chosen by my iTunes software as the Top 50 songs I played from October, 1 2015 until December 20, 2016 (Plus some late entries and other stuff that tickles my fancy!)....
I have placed videos with the songs whenever and where ever possible.
