Kristine Sa is pretty spiffy.

I think that's her name..

She did covers for two of the FFX^2 songs.

Hamasaki Ayumi, Koda Kumi, SMAP (yum!), Mini Moni (too cute to hate), Rip Slyme, and my personal fav... gackt-san (double yum)

Mini Moni. Dear Irish Jesus Michael, I want to forget I ever heard those songs.

I'd say Hikaru Utada or Ayumi Hamasaki.

>_> though Yoko Kanno gets overall best musical artist/composer of all time. XD

Kukosunosuke
10-16-2003, 10:58 PM
XD Yeah, sometimes one forgets she's j-pop and tends to think she's R&B

Yaida Hitomi O.o She sounds so...odd. I can't place a word for what it is exactly. Just listen to her.

Her voice is odd, no? I can't place what to call it O.o Deep, kind of gravelly, but in a *good* way.

Definitely Utada Hikaru

I have SES, but haven't really listened to it that much...

Twilight
10-31-2003, 08:03 PM
Hmmm...Utada Hikaru. Her songs are awesome and I really like the "Simple and Clean" song she sang for Kingdom Hearts...

Fabala
10-31-2003, 09:25 PM
I've lately taken a liking to Nanase Aikawa, too ^^ She's sort of a combination J Pop and J Rock, but quite a singer.

Edit: Add to that Nakajima Miyuki and Nakamori Akina XD They're awesome. And I'm liking what little I've heard of Kahara Tomomi.

I'me not shure but i think this is J-Pop.

How bout Yoko Kano don't quote me on this but I think she sung at least one or two Love Hina songs and a few songs in Cowboy Bebop with the Seatbelts.

Chia_Pet

Fabala

I like those who are still going to be around in, say, four years from now. Cuts the list down considerably... In particular Ogata Megumi and Nakajima Miyuki.

Aside from those I've been fond of Yaida Hitomi, Akino Arai, Gackt (less popular works usually ^^;), Kuraki Mai, Sakamoto Maaya (also to a lesser degree), Okui Masami, Nanase Aikawa, Onitsuka Chihiro, Urara Takano, Takehito Koyasu, Utada Hikaru, and Nao Takagi (I don't know that she's ever released her own cd, but her voice is AMAZING so who cares? She played Uranus in several musicals.)

Anyway, that's most of the Japanese singers I listen to right there. Others I have are usually one-shot songs I have of one artist or another, liked it, but don't particularly like anything else by them.

Utada Hikaru RULEZ. She is my favourite person in J-Pop and in the world of Japanes music. :p :p :p

Wow, no love for Yoko Ishida, Yuki Kajiura, or L'Arc~en~Ciel? Tsk.

Come on, Yoko Ishida sings Towa no Hana, the opening theme of Ai Yori
Aoshi, one of the most beautiful songs ever! She's also VERY popular for
her Para Para remixes, and possesses a radiant personality and the voice of
an angel. Yuki Kajiura did most if not all of the wonderful music for
.hack//SIGN, and L'Arc~en~Ciel is like a Japanese N'Sync, only their music is
actually good.

Figures I'd be a fan of some of the more underappreciated ones. I even
have Yoko Ishida's autograph.

Don't get me wrong, Ayumi Hamasaki (have some of her songs on hand too)
Megumi Hayashibara, and Hikaru Utada are great, too, but let's broaden our
horizons a little, ne?

[BlackDeath]
10-13-2004, 02:26 AM
utada hikaru
megumi hayashibara
ayumi hamasaki
maaya sakamoto
rina aiuchi
beni arashiro
hiromi sato
hayami kishimoto

Wow, no love for Yoko Ishida, thats one of the people i couldn't remember xD

10-13-2004, 04:57 PM
for me hmm..... koda kumi, ayumi, utada, BoA etc.....
