  1. Yes, there aren’t a whole lot of links up yet compared to the massive lists I’ve had in my previous blogs. This time around, I’m adding them as I write about the artist so all the links here should have an entry that’s tied into to it. Am I being lazy? Maybe. 😛

    Oh, and if you want to be added to my Links Page please feel free to email me at karakuipress[at]gmail[dot]com or leave a comment on this page (I can always edit it out afterwards).

  2. Hi Travis!

    I’ll be sure to check out your links and add you to my blogroll too. 🙂

    Btw, you’ll find my email address on the second paragraph of the top comment post and in my “About” page too.

  3. Hi Richie! I just want to say that I love what you are doing here! I’ve been searching for something like this for a while and now I have found it! >.< I just want to suggest an Okinawan artist who does Japanese Hip Hop! His name is 三浦大知 and he is the most amazing singer I have ever heard! Here is his website ^.^

  4. Hi Serina! Thanks for the comment and the suggestion to add Daichi to the links page. I remember when he was with Folder and will gladly add him.
