Arigato mina (=Thank you everybody)! By the way...what exactly is "AIM"? Where is it located at the menu?

Alyssa
11-02-2004, 02:59 PM
hold on, you don't have AIM or MSN? funny, go to the search engine and find one, if you have any. If you have MSN though, that would be perfect!

AIM is AOL instant Messaging! You must have AOL or I think some other servers will let you talk to AOL users as long as you are regestered for their instant messanging...i think!

I have one more question:
Who are the most famous for writing anime songs bands and artists? I suppose that Round Table featuring Nino (Let me be with you from Chobits, New World for hack//Legend of the Twinlight) and The pillows (the most songs of FLCL) are some of them?

If you want real j-music, you should listen to Dir en grey, X JAPAN, Gazette, Nightmare, Kagerou, MUCC, Moi Dix Mois, Merry.

I hate to down play anyone but, the first few groups of music listed are are simple Otaku name sakes that people can name instantly when someone names j-anything. I am not saying they aren't good, but it is a shame like always.. They are the only ones named.

Sort of how people constantly scream "Baka!" out of context, just not as annoying.

Rina Aiuchi
Rica Matsumoto - Live a Life
The Salienger ( Apparently this is their name since I can't read japanese 100%)- Wipe Out
( Another name gone wrong.) Shinichi Ishihara?
And it is a shame that people download that many albums/songs, if you don't want to support the RIAA; at least let the artists you do like have a little bit of your money in their pockets.
