    Outside of drawing, I'm currently watching the

    One Piece anime steadily and its been years since I last watched it and now I can't get "Jungle P" out of my head. Most theme songs like that are excellent and enjoyable for being complete earworms. Plus, Jungle P is beautiful...

    Well even though I can't understand the lyrics,

    I love how their songs sound. It's as if they're filled with emotions and have very good melodies.

    I absolutely love Japanese music.

    It all started when I had stumbled across an artist named Utada Hikaru. Her music had so much emotion and beauty in it, that even though I couldn't understand what she was saying, I was still captivated by her. I've been following her ever since. I hope that one day she will do...

    I think traditional Japanese music is very

    peaceful. Just the sounds are so cool, and I'd love to listen to live traditional performances.

    Listening to music I don't understand the words

    to helps me focus on the music rather than the singing, which I prefer. When someone sings it tells the the story of the music, if you don't understand the story. You can make your own.

    Visual Kei

    I love bands like L'Arc en Ciel and Girugamesh, but I am much more of a visual kei kind of girl. My favorite band is the GazettE! I swear if that band ever comes to America I will like sell a lung to get to that concert!!!

    Japanese music has been my life for…*Counts*

    going on 9 years now and though very few people can connect with it, I quite frankly don't care. I discovered L'Arc~en~Ciel and Asian Kung Fu Generation through Full Metal Alchemist and the pillows through FLCL. Around 2 years ago I changed away from rock because the release...

    Mainly Stuff From Anime, but I like other stuff as well.

    Most of the music on my ipod is actually Japanese music that was used anime, but in general I would say I find myself enjoying a lot of Japanese music. Despite being American, I find myself exposed to Japanese music that I like more so than English music than I like. I think the...

    Like Finding A Treasure

    I have gone through just about every genre of music in my life, and when I find something new that really speaks to me it is a wonderful gift. I saw the movie Kill Bill for the first time a few months ago and loved the music so much that I got right into the J music thing. I've...

    I know this is going to cause contention with my other two comrades who share this experience, as they are BOA fans, but it is my true and honest belief that Ayumi Hamasaki is the queen of music 4eva. Her works always build you up when you are down, they start off low and...

    Visual Kei

    Ten to fifteen year behind the world, I still fawn over younger Yoshikis and hides. The beginnings of Malice Mizer and Luna Sea, the originals, and the best. Though intrest has begun to sway, friends of mine have indroduced me to Yui and Arashi, and I was hooked.

    Well, Maybe Not "love", But...

    I do like Japanese music. Really, though, it's just a few songs used for anime openings, the last eight or so Super Sentai themes, and the many different versions of "Double Action" from Kamen Rider Den-O. Well, that, and the occasional shakuhachi tune if I need...

    BoA

    BoA is one of the most popular Japanese singers in America. Since InuYasha came out, more and more people have been listening to BoA and other Japanese pop singers. I recomend the song Number One to be listened to. I love that song by her.   Mitsuru
