Dir en Grey seem to be pretty popular now, they aren't half bad.
They are plenty weird enough to stay interesting, but I must warn you, it's heavy.


I really never understood the obsession with Japanese music alone, especially J-pop.
We're all human beings, I don't see why people can become infatuated with music from a certain region of the world unless there is a unique style or they know the language well enough to understand what the lyrics mean.

Most of the pop from Japan sounds exactly like american R&B/pop.

Yea I agree. I always put them under the same genre. J-Rock or whatever is a sub genre to me, however.

Anyway... B'z. They have approximately 300 songs (like one or two suck) spanned over 20 years and are still going. Google them if you want I guess.

Edit: And the singer (Koshi Inaba) can actually sing in English! Not a common feat in Japanese music (Dir en grey is the PERFECT example for this).

i can easily distinguish j-rock/j-pop from american junk as long as its not generic.

as nyokou suggested, i've sound is pretty good

mosaic.wav is good as moches said, but it's moe j-pop. if you're like white-washed or anything, you probably won't be able to stand it

utada hikaru, ayumi hamasaki, hitomi shimatani, kotoko, mell, mosaic.wav (j-pop)
the gazette, dir en grey, malice mizer are pretty awesome (j-rock)

All pretty good bands.

Vocaloid feats are half the rage on nicovideo. Neat stuff. OSTER Project, livetune, Ryo, and Kz are some popular upnames on nicovideo. I'm a vocaloid artist too.

Utada Hikaru is great at singing in Japanese and English, since she's fluent in both.

BoA is okay, she sings in Korean and Japanese... terrible English though.

Aya Hirano is a new face in J-Pop. (The girl in my sig/avie)
She's good at singing as well, and a talented seiyuu. She's most famous for her role as Haruhi Suzumiya, especially the ending song to that anime.

O.O I'm so buying it if I find it.

And Nyokou is right, she's pretty good. I'm pretty sure that her songs from Haruhi (Hare Hare Yukai, God Knows... and Lost my Music from ep 12) made her really popular.

Utada Hikaru, Ayumi Hamasaki, and Do as Infinity are the ones I listen since their music is easy to find. I was trying to find Sana Shintani's other non-Bemani work but I cant seem to get ahold of it.
