Well, it was long time ago, in 1992. I was sarting to be a fan of Katsura Masakazu sensei's manga named Video Girl AI. When I discovered that it was an anime version I got it the fast way I could it and then I heard that song (opening theme) and the melody and voice really shocked me. It was a beautiful song for a good anime. Nice memories :)

We had a Japanese homestay student come from Japan, and she introduced us to Japanese pop music.   This is one of the first songs I heard.  It always brings me back to those days, and the great times we had.  I wonder how our student is these days, and whether she remembers those times too.

I went to stay with some friends of mine in Japan. Me and my friend went out to a bar one night ,her husband stayed home as he didn't want to go.When we came home,there was this great song on and I asked him "what is that song?" . He told me "it's STOP MOTION by SILK". He gave me the CD, I brought it home with me and burned it using my computer then post it back to him. It is a great song,and when I listen to it (a lot!) I think of my wonderful holiday to Japan.*The picture is CD Album "Face"which includes "STOP MOTION".

My two memorial songs are "Choudenshi Bioman", the opening theme to the sentai Bioman by Takayuki Miyauchi and the original Sailor Moon theme song "Moonlight Densetsu" by DALI.  These are my memorial songs because these are the songs that got me hooked onto the sentai series and the Sailor Moon anime when I was a kid.  And it is those songs that got me rehooked now 12 years later.   Everytime I hear those songs, it makes me very nostalgic of my childhood.  I can still visualize the opening credits to both shows when I hear them.  When I heard those songs again, i said to myself "I so remember this song."   The music just stood out to me so much that even after 10 years or so, i can still remember it.
