Puffy AmiYumi: The Iconic and Multifaceted Duo [Yattatachi]

As a child that spend way too much time watching TV, it was no wonder that I learned about many things through cartoon shows. One of those things was Japanese pop music (or J-pop). A genre which I first discovered thanks to the Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi show and the multiple video clips of Puffy’s most recent hits that Cartoon Network often aired.

It was the first time I was exposed to the language too. Even though I couldn’t understand anything, it didn’t matter: I was entranced by them.

Today I’m in my 20s, and Puffy remains one of my favorite artists. Listening to them, I can enjoy their music while fondly remembering the childhood memories they gave me as well.
