Utada Hikaru. I stumbled upon ULTRA BLUE in a Best Buy in 07 and bought it just because it was there. To date it's the only Japanese CD I own.

I've recently gotten into an Idol singer from the 80s, Meiko Nakahara. She wrote all her stuff, and did some themes for Dirty Pair and Kimagure Orange Road. It's annoying though, because it's hard for me to even FIND her music and I can't even find KANJI lyrics for most of them, let alone romaji or translations. :cry:

^ Utada's 'Ultra Blue' album is one of my favourite albums by her. I especially like 'This is Love', 'BLUE', 'Nichiyō no Asa' and 'Dareka no Negai ga Kanau Koro'. I really hope Utada will release a new single/album very soon!

I'm not so into J-music (i'm a J-films fan btw :D ) so I don't know much about other artists aside Mika. Of course I hve some artists whom I found impressive, but I'm not a fan of them:

1. Bump of Chicken: a Rock Band. I love their recent album, "Present from you". Their songs have meaningful lyrics and peace rhythm.

2. Cocco: a unique fold rock singer. I like the way she performs her songs, very powerful and addicted.

3. GreeeeN: a rock band. I think their music is very catchy, easy to hear and easy to like. Most of their songs have "party auroma" in them.

4, 5...: YUI, Three Michelle Gun Elephant, B'z, Kariyushi 58, MONGOL800, Sambomaster, Tegomass, Hirai Ken...
