Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Yesterday was Coming of Age Day here in Japan, where those who have turned twenty over the past year dress-up and celebrate becoming adults! I still can’t believe they all must have been younger than me! They were wearing kimonos which make them look so mature and grown-up!

Anyway, we’re already well into 2015 now, but today I’m going to be taking a look at the 2014 most popular blog articles as well as the most popular products of 2014!  (`・ω・´)ゞ

By the way, this is this year’s Nendoroid Calender! ♡ 

*The calender given out at WonFes will be a school calender starting fro April, so it will be a little different to this one!

Anyway, let’s start off with my blog ranking!
