    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...

    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...

    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...

    J-music

    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...

    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...

    The more anime I watch the more great music I

    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...

    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.

    He isn't actually Japanese, but his Japanese music and non-Japanese music is pretty awesome! I love visual kei groups (well, the ones that have both the look AND the sound. ).

    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.

    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

    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?
