I actually don't recall what my first J-Pop song was, but I do remember the first J-Pop song I liked. I had just got into anime, & was over at my friend's house watching "InuYasha." I heard the ending theme, which was BoA's "Every Heart -minna no kimochi-," & thought the song was very beautiful! So, yeah, who was ur first & what was the song?

I guess my jpop/rock fanatism must have started with anime opening/ending songs too, and Evry Heart was amongst the firsts Japanese songs I got to like too, along with Read or Die's theme song, Confidence. And the very first jpop song I heard... must have been the opening of my first anime, Kaleido Star, Tattoo Kiss, that I came to like quickly despite of not understanding a word of Japanese back then.

Wow, I noticed that quite a few people here mentioned "First Love" by Utada Hikaru as their first Jpop song. It seems that a lot of people I talk to state that that is their first Jpop song. I started listening to Jpop around 2000 and that was the song. Everyone I knew played it over and over and liked it even though we had no idea what the lyrics were about.

Me too~~~!!! The first jpop song I liked was Minna no Kimochi. I liked the song because of BoA..not because of Inuyasha. But I got tired after listening to it a lot of times. And so I replaced Minna no kimochi with Janne D' Arc's "Gekkouka". It's really a good song...but the PV is creepy xD.

My first J-pop song that I liked was surely an anime song XD (can't really remember which one was the first) but the one which got me into Jpop completely was Evolution by Ayumi Hamasaki.

Ah! Love J-Pop =) The first JPop song I ever heard was Simple and Clean by Utada Hikaru, during the opening of Kingdom Hearts. Well, not really JPop, but I then went on the internet and listened to Hikari and alot more of her music. My all time favourite is 'Final Distance'. Such a beautiful song; it never fails to bring a tear to my eye.

First Love - Utada Hikaru My cousin was listening to it, and I loved it too. I only found out the name of the song and the artist a few years later though, I thought 'hmm I'm certain I've heard this before', and then I remembered.

The first J-pop song that I like is "Thank You!" by Home Made Kazoku. It is an ending song from the anime "Bleach". I love the upbeat feeling of the song. Even though I wasn't a fan of rap, the rapping by Home Made Kazoku and most J-pop artist are more uplifting and even inspiring. This is far from the dark and angry style of some western rapper. Ever since this song, I have been a lover of J-pop and a loyal fan of Home Made Kazoku!
