Kumamon (くまモン) welcomes you to the city of Kumamoto 熊本 on the island of Kyushu. Kumamoto uses the Kanji for bear and origin and hence roughly translates as origin of bears. In case you were ever wondering where bears came from.

You will be staying in Kumamoto castle. Don't worry we renovated it for you.

While here visit the Fujisaki hachimangu shrine. New Years is a more important time in Japan than Christmas and this is where you go to make your offerings and your wishes for the year ahead

And please take some time to visit the gardens and get some zen . Competitions can be stressful after all

Why Kumamoto you might ask? Well this is the hometown of our winner of course , Aimer who rose to stardom doing jazz covers of popular songs. Surrounded by music from childhood a freak accident destroyed her voice at age 15 but she recovered and developed the husky voice you rarely hear in a Japanese singer. She later performed many theme songs for anime especially for composer Hiroyuki Sawano and has numerous popular japanese artists compose songs just for her.

The deadline for entries will be Christmas Eve my time Pacific Standard Time Canada and I will post the songs Christmas Day as my gift to you. No exceptions. I don't care if there isn't enough entries lets just do it. Nike style

Ganbatte!!! (Do your best) and enjoy that Kentucky Fried Chicken

Our intro song is "Ninelie" by Aimer (with guest Chelly from Egoist) from the anime Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress and composed by Hiroyuki Sawano from the album "Daydream"

Talented city I see. :D

Another fun side note: I might be going to Japan after I'm done with the army next year (probably around May). :P I plan to make this a pilgrimage to places shown in anime, I need to make a list. :devil:

Not sure if I'll join this edition. I need to look hard for a song.
EDIT: Lol I do NOT care enough. xD I joined however.

Please share, I need to make this trip not boring for the person who is travelling with me :hide: (waiting for his confirmation next month).

I thought I sent my entry; obviously I did not. :rolleyes: A premonition perhaps. xD

OK i do have nine entries now from:

Dilly
Marv
Marjo
Myself
Kosmas
Lotte
Dara
Nebo
Laartjeee

I think I'll give it a few more hours :D

In the meantime I'll leave you with a christmas song by Aimer to keep ypu in the mood :D

Not my favorite song by her but the animated story is cute and touching and it snowed here for Christmas though it's all melting now xD Still it was cool to wake up to a layer of snow on the trees

So here is some "Everlasting Snow" compose by Takahito Uchisawa

No fanciness here are your songs :D

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKkzbbLYPuI

UKRAINE - Olya Polyakova - S novym godom!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=km6wwIofA90

Since there is only nine songs vote 12, 10, 8-3 and give your own song 2.

Vote by Jan. 15th that's plenty of time.

Were we allowed to enter songs that have been done before (I think Carol of the Bells has? It is my #1 or #2 favourite Christmas song <3)
