  • How'd you create your username?
  • When I was a new fan of Do As Infinity, two of my favorite songs were "Oasis" and "Heart". I added the number 3 because there were three main members in the group (Tomiko Van, Ryo Owatari, Dai Nagao). I first used the name "oasis_heart3" at DAIForum, and I decided to keep using it on my website. ^^

  • What's the correct way to write your username?
  • Sometimes I alternate between "oasis_heart3" and "Oasis Heart3". Both spellings are fine. (^^) You can also just call me "Oasis", or "OH3".

  • What's your real name?
  • My real-life nickname is "Bri" and that's all I'm telling you. =P

  • Tell us more about yourself!
  • Well...I'm a female (born in 1985), and I live in the United States. I've been interested in computers, writing, and foreign languages (especially Japanese) ever since I was a child...so my "dream job" is to do something that involves all three. ^_^

    • Food and sweets (and no, I'm not fat)
    • Reading
    • Using the Internet
    • Learning new dances
    • Music
    • Animals (especially domesticated ones! I mean, I like leopards, but... xD)
    • Dislikes:

    • Liars
    • Mean people
    • Working. I'm a lazy bum. xD
    • Exercise. For the same reason listed above. xD

  • How did you become a fan of Do As Infinity (and the other artists)?
  • Most American fans learned about Do As Infinity through InuYasha, a popular anime/manga series. I am not one of these fans...sort of. (xD) I didn't hear their music until I watched InuYasha, but I knew about the group for a long time.

    I'd heard of Do As Infinity, just like I'd heard of MANY other artists. So I put DAI on my special list called "I've Heard of You, and One Day I'll Listen To Your Music". (This list is still reeeeeaaallly long.... x___x)

    I have a similar list for anime series, and thanks to Cartoon Network I've removed a lot of these shows from my list, including Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Detective Conan...and InuYasha.

    I really liked InuYasha and I watched it all the time. Then one day I heard its "newest" ending, "Fukai Mori", and I said to myself, "This song is amazing! I wonder who the singer is?!" So I kept watching the credits to find out, and that's when I discovered the "singer" was Do As Infinity (or more specifically, Tomiko Van).

    So a few hours later, I removed Do As Infinity from my list. And I searched for more of their songs. (^^) "Raven" was the first full-length song I heard by them, and I was immediately hooked.

    Sadly, I became a fan right before their 2005 breakup. I tried going to their farewell concert too, but...well, let's just say my plan failed. And I got depressed for a while. (-__-) But I reduced my depression by following their solo careers!!

  • How did you become a fan of the other artists on this site (Kazuyoshi Saito, Ayumi Hamasaki, etc.)?
  • Well I was already a fan for some of the artists (specifically Ayumi Hamasaki and hitomi). But for everyone else, the simple answer is, "I had no choice but to become a fan." xD

    I want this website to be very thorough, complete, and detailed. So I try to monitor ALL the projects that Ryo, Van, and Dai are involved with. That means I have to post information on everyone they've ever worked with -- or at the very least, I'll post a picture and a brief biography for the artist. (^^;) Usually these artists do really good collaborations with Dai, Ryo and Van...and as a result I want to hear more of their music, and I (usually) end up becoming a casual fan.

    But sometimes I'll find a song or artist that's really terrible (example: "MONSTER PARTY" by Dengeki Network). And when that happens, I still end up becoming a "(mild) fan". That's because I have to force myself to like these songs. Since I have to create MP3 samples and romaji lyrics, that means I need to hear the song repeatedly. And you know what happens when you hear a song repeatedly -- you end up liking it. (>_<;) I think it's called Stuck Song Syndrome. xD

  • What other Japanese artists do you like?
  • I'm willing to give any artist a chance, which you probably already know by now. ^_^

    However, some more of my favorite Japanese artists are Miho Komatsu, Ai Otsuka, Ketsumeishi, Ringo Shiina (and Tokyo Jihen), Hikaru Utada, Angela Aki, D[di:], L'arc~en~Ciel, Kiroro, Pizzicato Five, capsule, MEG, Masami Okui...
