i like The Pillows, Utada Hikaru, Dream, and a whole bunch of others... most of the japanese music i hear is from anime, so that is how i got into it, but i've also heard some japanese christian songs that were really cool too.

run rabbit junk by yoko kanno is sweet. (oh hang on, thats english lyrics LOL!). The intro for ghost in the shell is quite nice. But I can't remember the proper name (nvr mind).

Inner Universe is the opening song for Ghost in the Shell: SAC, and Lithium Flower is the ending song. :) I used to have nearly the whole OST on my hard drive, but then media player deleted the folder some how... *rolls her eyes*


Whats my favourite music? Right now its the soundtrack for Kannaduki no Miko *fangirlish squeals* ^_^

I have all 26 episodes of stand alone complex on my Multimedia player. :)

I just found あいこ by listening on shoutcast.com :) I like it. Listened to some うただ ひかる and Mr Children. あゅみ はまさき too of course. :p

(woo hoo, character map works! lol)

TM Revolution is good for me. The Pillows as well. I see Yoko Kanno is popular as well. I agree. Kanno is awesome. See-Saw is good. Cool Joke, Asian Kung Fu Generation, and Im sure there are many more I forgot. Whoever did "Boku wa Koko ni Iru" from Kaleido Star must be good. B'z are pretty good based on the 1 song of theirs Ive heard. Overall, Im sure there are millions more Ive yet to find.

I don't know too many but I like Otsuka Ai the best I guess... I don't listen to anime music because anime isn't why I learn Japanese.

Its a shame that none of u listen toX JAPAN

They are hands down The most famous let alone best sounding group to emerge not only out of Japan but Asia. These Guys started the Japanese Metal Scene and were one of the founders of Visual Shock (Visual Kei)

Also you guys shouldnt get caught up with Anime music (which is mostly generic) Try listening to Traditional Taiko and enjoy the true arts of japanese culture!!!

Just because anime music isn't your reason for learning Japanese, doesn't mean you can't enjoy it.

New here! konnichi wa!

I collect Japanese music a lot, and most of my collections are Dir en grey and Jrock sorts of stuff. I recently downloaded Dir en grey's Withering to death.

What seprates Jmusic from western pop is its quirkiness. it's quite original...

I watch all the Japanese Music Videos on OnDemand for Comcast Digital Cable (if any of you have OnDemand: go to 'the CuttingEdge', 'the anime Network' and then 'Bento Beat Box' ) But i watch Asian Kungfu Generation and i love their music and some other band called like something "L'Ciel" (i donno, the name sounds French but they are cool). I like all anime music, pretty much...

Well I was looking for pics of this Korean actress Han Chae Young, and I found this k-pop girl Lee Hyo Ri, and was wondering if anyone had heard anything by her?
