I'm interested in this ~ How did you find out about alan and start really becoming her fan? *o*

For me, it was asking Pommy for a recommendation for a new song-artist I think, I asked about alan because she always talked about her on AHS xD She sent me a youtube link to a live performance, and I was blown away ♥ Then Pommy gave me a link to the discography download thread for alan, I listened to every song, and I've been in love ever since ♥

I'm a new fan but I think she's amazing ~ *o*

I'm so glad that you asked me about alan XD Or else you wouldn't be here lol

I knew that talking about alan long enough will get people's attention :P

I discovered alan during my myspace era where I befriended a lot of people with Jpop pages~ One friend had AENS playing on their profile and I just fell in love

After AENS, I kinda stopped, but with being on AHS around that time, I fell in love with Sora Uta and has been loving alan ever since!

For me it was pommy's alan's sets. Amazing what her graphic addiction can cause. But yeah that's pretty much all I remember. XD

Well, beacuse I always like to try out new artists, I decided to DL Megumi no Ame single (because it was just released at that time), and I slowly but deeply fell in love with both songs on the single, and DLed everything she ever released, and was blown away by her wailing (which I first heard in Natsukashii Miari), especially later in Ashita e no Sanka <3.

I downloaded Ashita right when it came out but never listened to it. Around the third alan thread on AHS, I decided "hey, I'mma listen to this stuff" which was around the time Natsukashii came out. I was instant fan'd. I provided one of the first 320 rips of Hitotsu, back in the days when alan didn't get HQ leaks at all <3

Since then I've collected EVERYTHING, I own everything I can get my hands on from over here in America XD

When someone asked me a request to do some screencaps of Hitotsu's PV, I told myself: wouaaah she is soooo prettyyy and fell in love with her voice. Then I did some research and become a fan of her ^^
It was the day of my prom. I will not forget ^^

I heard of Kuon no Kawa as they broadcasted on the news the Cannes Film Festival, and they said:

Quote :
This is Japanese singer alan performing her new single 'Kuon no Kawa' which was used in the movie RED CLIFF 2. The single reached #3 in the Japanese charts

For me it was pommy and some people on lj and blogspot.

The people on lj and blogspot kept talking about how great she was but when I first tried one of her songs out, I didn't like it~

During the release of Ballad pommy requested something from me and we began talking about alan and namie and now I am a namie and alan fan ^o^
Her live performance of Ballad was just amazing!! I was addicted to that song from the begining~

^It was Ballad!! You posted a live performance of it, you said the PV was too boring to watch XD
(The very first song I heard was probably ashita e no sanka. MoA on youtube uploaded her cover and it was really pretty but after sometime I forgot about it ^.^)

I found out about her through gunjou no tani, and I saw the pv, and I thought the song and pv was unique, and she was wearing this traditional type of clothing in the pv when she is near the river.

Anyways, after seeing the pv, I downloaded her other songs, and I loved them. So, that's how I became a fan.

There was a period in my life where I was obsessed with trying out all kinds of new artists. For the longest time I only listened to mostly Ayumi Hamasaki, Namie Amuro, and Utada Hikaru, but I finally branched out and found tons of other artists I loved. Then I saw two boards on AHS saying "HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED". One was for Stephanie and the other was for alan. I became a fan of both, but I loved Stephanie over alan (this was when Ashita e no Sanka first came out).

Then alan released Hitotsu which I loved loved loved and my addiction grew but I still liked Stephanie better.

Then Stephanie faded away and alan released Natsukashii Mirai ~longing future~ and right then my love for alan grew and made her my second favorite artist :D.

And now she's close to first :o.

I knew alan from my friends last year. They said alan has a great voice and give a high recommendations. Then I started to listen her songs. The first single I got was Shiawase no Kane and Red Cliff's soundtrack :)
Until now I still collecting all her previous single, since I'm a new fan LOL It's very hard to find Japanese music CD on my country :(

I was watching the Oricon top 40 on Youtube, it was a few days after the release of "Kuon no Kawa" . I just started listenning to Asian Music in the middle of 2008, when Koda Kumi released her PV of 'That Ain't Cool', exactly May 30th 2008 xD Then, I really get into the Asian Music in January 2009, by listening to Ayu, and then to Tohoshinki, and etc .
So I was watching the Oricon Top 40 on youtube, and I saw Kuon no Kawa, it was #14 or #15 . It really struck me, and I was really interested in her. It was "Kuon no Kawa", and since i didn't know reading the Kanjis, I just remembered "Something NO something" xD I looked for a PV for Alan, but it wasn't kuon NO kawa, but gunjou NO tani. Then I just fell in love with that song . I realized a few weeks later that I was mistaken xD

i know alan since she started with avex ^^ I was already an ayufan, and one of my closest Chinese friends showed me about alan... I saw the covers for ashita e no sanka and thought "meh, couldn't be really special" but my friend bugged me soo much that I finally watched the pv of that song/single and fell in love straight away!!! *o*

I was crazyy about her thanks to ashita e no sanka and that other side single song :D hitotsu seemed cool too but soft... then natsukashii seemed a bit boring so i kinda stopped listening to her until she came out with RED CLIFF! started buying her stuff with her first album "Voice of EARTH" and now I have nearly everything from her xD
