This is a really cool sounding song about living life the way you want and not letting anything hold you back! (Like a desperado I guess?) The dance film clip for this that came with the Twinkle Twinkle DVD is soooo cool! Make sure to watch it if you get a chance!
Throw back translation! This was one of my very first favourite Ebi songs. I love the backing track and intensity of the song. I originally thought the “blow” was like “a blow to the head”, like love makes you feel like you’ve been hit by a truck… but actually it’s a song about a love that makes you feel like you’re going to explode 💣
Just a cute, quick Hika translation because I feel like it’s been ages since he’s talked about these kinds of sweet, personal things in a magazine 💛 (Also he might try and poison himself with mushrooms and/or medicinal herbs, and/or potentially lose a toe to frostbite so we all need to look out for him!!!)

I have been doing lots of messy little pieces of translating for this so I thought I would condense it all into one master post that people can scroll through. I’ll keep adding little bits and pieces in as they come along~ 📖🍃✨
This is a lovely song encouraging someone to get back up and start again after a sad goodbye. “Sayonara wa Hajimari” means “Goodbye is the Beginning”, meaning goodbye doesn’t have to be the end of something, it can also be the start of something new.
This is a cute little love song that sounds like it could be the opening to a day-time soap opera 😁
The successor to Joy shitai kimochi, DAN DAN Dance!! was the song used for Ebi’s 2019 collaboration with Joypolis. Just like Joy shitai, it’s a song about forgetting your troubles and daily life and coming along to have fun with Ebi (…at Joypolis).
People often ask me about how I learnt Japanese and how they can start their own study journey. I am mostly self-taught and my skills aren’t fabulous but this is how I taught myself and some of my personal tips for teaching yourself Japanese through the exciting medium of Johnny’s! 🤣
2019 was another amazing year, in both my private and fangirl life. A bit of a long selfish post but it’s nice to look back on what a big and amazing year 2019 has been before taking the next step into 2020!
