I love anime songs. I also have a favorite band based from Japan. Their name is Monkey Majik and they were originally based in Canada but now in Japan. They sung the opening song of Nurarihyon No Mago. The first two opening songs. They also have an English song entitled Miss You which is also great.

I listen to JPop too. I first heard it as anime soundtracks also, back in 1999. I listen to Yui, Ayumi and Ai Ostuka. Then there came JDramas, which introduced me to Johnny Ent's boys Arashi, Kat-tun, and NEWS. I was into JPop, but a decade later, I became more interested in KPop (because they're easier to access). Funny thing though, there is a drive towards JPop among the Korean artists. So I guess I will be hearing a lot more Japanese music by Korean artists for a while.

Yes, I like Japanese music and songs very much. Very beautiful and sounds very enchanting. The first time I heard was when I was visiting Tokyo, while staying at a hotel. From the very first time I heard, I got pretty addicted to Japanese music. So, I bought a number of CDs of music and songs (classical). I listen to the CDs at home these days too.

Yea.. I love Japanese music!~ Since I'm learning Japanese.. listening to Japanese music also helps me in my learning.. I love anime and manga too! I wouldn't say I like all the songs featured in anime but there are some which are really nice! The first Japanese song I heard is probably the Doraemon song.. LOL "An an an.. totemo daisuki... Daraemon..." I can still remember how the song goes!~

I personally don't like it much. It sounds too "canned" for me, I like real instruments, not syntetisers all the way. I prefer other music styles, like british pop. There are some Japanese songs I like, one of them is Agony, from a group called KOTOTKO, I love that song so much!
