- Old Updates -

Crab Bubbles A cover version of Puffy's song Boom Boom Beat has been recorded by the American and Japanese duo the Crab Bubbles. The duo is composed of Dale and Chiha Richards. Dale grew up in the US while his wife Chiha grew up in Fukuoka, Japan. They currently live in Arizona.

The two were kind enough to give me an interview on April 7th for J-Pop World. Read what they had to say about Puffy here.

Puffy AmiYumi World joins J-Pop World.

Thanks to everyone for helping to make this website such a success. The wonderful emails and comments have helped to keep it going and I intend to update and add features for as long as our favorite Japanese duo are together.

I'm happy to announce that Puffy AmiYumi World will be the flagship for a new website called J-Pop World. There are already several excellent Japanese music websites out there but J-Pop World will be something unique. Rather than providing a small amount of info and news on dozens of different groups J-Pop World will provide lots of info and interactive features on a few featured artists.

Puffy AmiYumi World will remain at puffyamiyumiworld.com and the only changes you'll see here will be some navigation links. Hope everyone enjoys and supports the new site as well.
