    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!!!

    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.

    I think traditional Japanese music is very

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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    find, it frustrates me to no end though how little of it is available for purchase on iTunes. If you really want it it seems that you need to go to some illegal downloading site to get it. I want to pay these artists for their songs. Even if the song was not featured in an anime...

    With Or Without Words?

     I love the old time koto or shakuhachi or sharumela music.  As they become more westernized their songs seem less Japanese but maybe that's just the purist in me?

    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

    From Dir En Grey to The Brillant Green, Jinn to the Gazette, I personally cannot get enough of Japanese music. Although, I can't understand most of what their saying it gives off this unsual familiar feeling. It's like you can understand it even if you don't. Call me a weebo, I...

    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...
