    Depends on the tone,

    and type of music, with slow but beautiful Japanese music I can imagine myself walking around in a Japanese looking street or blossom garden. It feels me with calm too. I'm listening to Miwa, friend. With some Japanese songs, I can sing along and I find myself really good at it...

    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...

    It kinda annoys those around me though.

    I guess its my secret side of musical taste. My favorite band is Flow, but I love listening to Vocaloids. Miku's "World is mine" is amazing.

    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!!!

    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...

    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.

    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

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

    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...

    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...

    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.
