Utada Hikaru - SCIENCE FICTION + General Discussion

Can anyone tell me what Pakuchī is, is it like a Japanese version of coriander? That's the song title which made me die, for me it was so unexpected to see that, I'm thinking it might be a children's song, like Boku wa Kuma is.

I'm thinking the lyrics for Pakuchī no uta might go something like this: "Eat pakuchī, it's good for you, let's all eat pakuchī together, yaay!", more than likely I'm 100% wrong, but if it's written for a child, that's what I can think of, please don't think I'm taking the piss out of Hikaru because I'm not.
 
Actually, the last name comes first in Japanese : 宇多田ヒカル (Utada Hikaru).
Why keep it as Utada Hikaru on some of her albums especially in non-Japanese speaking countries, when she's actually called Hikaru Utada, which is the name that her new album is under on iTunes and other streaming services, when I was typing that original post my head was elsewhere, sorry about that, this is so confusing to me, because apparently she doesn't go by Hikaru Utada elsewhere, just Utada which is weird to have your surname as your stage name especially in English speaking countries.
 
I'm just glad she's releasing music in the west. So many j-acts avoid releasing in the west, at least a few years back. I remember getting into Chihiro Onitsuka, and fucking nothing was on iTunes.

Dark Times.
 
I really want to like it, but I’m not feeling the way she sings the chorus for “Hatsukoi”. The rest of the song is fine though, so I’ll try to let it grow on me a bit more.
 
Just listen to all the singles from Hatsukoi.
Her voice induces massive rage in me.
I'm so jealous of her voice. It is soooooooooooooo good and unique, my god.
It's like you have soft silk stroking your ear drums.
