Formerly known as sillylittleme.net, deep winter sleep is a blog focusing on Asian media. I tend to cover mostly Japanese music, dramas, and movies but sometimes cover Taiwanese releases (and maybe other Chinese releases as well). Generally, I cover Japanese releases more because 1) singles come out more often and are faster to review than albums, Taiwanese artists know of no such thing as singles and 2) Japanese dramas are shorter, anywhere from 2 to 3 times shorter, which means reviews for those come faster.

The name comes from Olivia Lufkin’s ‘winter sleep’ and as such, the first banner features Olivia from her ‘Wish’ photo shoot.

About linking, you don’t have to ask to link to me! If you want to do a link exchange, it’s pretty easy. I’ll exchange links with pretty much any blog that is related to Asian media. If you want to, just leave a comment here or email me at misaomeimei[at]gmail[dot]com. I love discovering new blogs to read, so please don’t be shy! Sometime I’ll make buttons too!
