Japanese Music I am looking for Japanese singers to listen to. Can anyone recommend a few good J-Pop or J-Rock groups to listen to so that I can practice listening to Japanese?

BUMP OF CHICKEN, KAT-TUN, Arashi, NewS, Otsuka Ai, NYC, A.B.C-Z, AKB48,and Kis-my-ft2 are ones I often listen too! IF it's any help, you can listen to popular japanese music, and find new artists and other songs here:

L'arc~en~ciel <- I definitely agree with this one. There lyrics are mostly japanese with some english. Favorite song by them: Coming Closer


Gackt <-- He is really good and also known for his work for some video game music (FF: Dirge of Cerebrus is one). Favorite song: kimi ga matteiru kara


Susumu Hirasawa <-- He has done work for anime movies and running anime shows. Examples: Berserk and Paprika. I really like the song Girl in the Byakkoya by him.


Bump of Chicken <-- I've only listened to a couple of there songs. They did the opening for a game called Tales of the Abyss.


Others that I have listened to one or two songs from:

Do as Inifinity by Fukai Mori

Still Doll by Kanon Wakeshima

A Rising Tide by Okino and Shuntaro

Complication b<em>y </em>Rookiez is Punk'd
