Yep, i know ...
...its just she is very particular about her language when it comes to things like song titles etc (eg. Distance vs. DISTANCE - one is the song, the other is the album)

So little things like how she writes her own name as well

ALSO ... its interesting that she signs her post
宇多田光
and not
宇多田ヒカル

...perhaps that is the "human" Hikaru signing



New theory:
Musician in Japan: "宇多田ヒカル"
Musician in America: "Utada"
Civilian: "宇多田光"

So as announced on Hikki's blog (translation), and for what I am now coining/naming "THE BREAK"

Hikki will be taking a long term break from her music career.
She plans to go full-throttle with music activities till the end of this year(2010). [which should include new songs, new SINGLES COLLECTION VOL.2 album, and an Endorsement campaign]

After reminiscing on 12 years since she started with "Automatic" when she was 15 years old,
She feels she needs to concentrate more on "human-being activities" so that means less "music activities" to grow more as a person.

She says she has "no idea how long it is going to be - 2 years or 5 years, but I shall return, more matured. Give me some time."
