one of Akina’s most theatrical performances i feel. this was February exactly 20 years ago on Yoru no Hit Studio. amazing.


Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.

  1. Mesmerising!! No matter how many times I watch this. I don’t think Bjork was that famous already then, but I could be wrong.

    The other singers must be gobsmacked because this is a mainstream star getting out of everyone’s comfort zone and doing something so risky, challenging and pulling it off. Speechless!

  2. Totally agreed! Fushigi remains my top favorite Akina album of all times. It was in 1986, Akina was right at the cutting edge and so avant-garde at that time. Amazing!

    I watched these video clips everyday, heaps of times. Never got bored! Akina was sensational in these performances! Spellbinding!

    I guess DJ Suzy used these live performances for the Mix Tape Project #2. Am I correct?

  3. Jamez, Bjork was totally unknown then. She didn’t make her debut with her band, The Sugarcubes till 1988. I wonder what/who gave Akina the inspiration to do Fushigi in the first place.
