I wrote about Alyssa Milano’s first Japanese pop album for The Awl, and discuss the above picture at some length. Hopefully I did not mangle too many details about how Japanese pop works?

Also, I just noticed that the font in which her name is rendered on the album packaging is very, very close to the one used for Nirvana’s name on Nevermind
