Please expand and improve her article, someone! I'd like to develop it as a substantial article like Ayumi Hamasaki, Hikaru Utada because Minako Honda is an amazing singer but I can't use English well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Hatto (talkcontribs) 03:25, 28 July 2006 (UTC)


Honda Minako was a wonderful pop-rock singer with a strong and beautiful voice. She combined beauty and sensuality with a child-like persona that endeared her to her fans. When she went on to musical theater and later classical and opera the faith her fans had in her abilities proved warranted. In her early career "Temptation" was classic Minako song. Her video "Dangerous Bond Street" was a clever linking of various songs with a dream-sequence story line about trying to escape a stalker who turned out to have only been trying to return her lost earring. The "Virgin live at Buddhokan" video shows her beauty, her revealing costumes, her strong voice and her charming personality. Songs recorded shortly before here terminal leukemia that ended her life at 38 were often religious songs. Besides "Ave Maria" and "Amazing Grace" included "Inoru" which was a lovely merging of a Japanese lyric with a religious intent with monks chanting the Gregorian version of "Kyrie". In decease she maintains a loyal fan base. Her fans saw her as, in Brian Mays words, "a little angel" or a bodhisattva. I have called her an embodiment of Kannon, the Bodhisattva of compassion. She had a strong sexual appeal combined with a real sweetness that was quite unique. She had strong religious feelings but she seemed indifferent between Buddhist, Shinto and Christian ways of expressing spirituality. Everyone who knew her has said that she was warm, gentle and grateful for the smallest kindnesses.

"Oversea" tracklist[edit]

Can anyone confirm this order of the tracks? (Well, I can't.) Oversea 1987 <English album> // Sneak Away / Playboy / Plaything / That's The Way I Want / Let's Start Again / Heart Break / You Can Do It / Take It Or Leave It / Girl Talk. On my copy, it's different: Sneak Away / Let's Start Again / That's The Way I Want It / Take It Or Leave It / Playboy / Heart Break / Plaything / Girl Talk / You Can Do It. -andy (talk) 12:36, 12 June 2011 (UTC)

Change in blood type[edit]

Is this really relevant? Normally, a person's blood type is trivia, so I don't see how it become less of a trivial fact because it changed after the transfusion of umbilical cord blood. —Farix (t | c) 13:13, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
