How many of you have NHK World on your cable? It's only in big cities, not nationwide, and as far as I can tell the only national carrier is AT&T UVerse.

Anyway, one of the shows is J-Melo, hosted by an English-speaking mixed-race girl named May J. The focus tends to be around JPop. Today, for example, they had performance by C-ute and Morning Musume, first individually and then combined. Conversations are subtitled in English but not lyrics.

NHK World is great for all things Japan but it's particularly good for pop culture. Hope many of you can get it.

^ Not me. I've heard it's on Sky in the UK, but not on freeview. I know they sub the programs themselves and stuff, which is nice. They subbed this really interesting early Alice Project documentary, however, only the Japanese version can be found easily on the web  :(

So NHK World, as mentioned above, has a video on-demand service on the internet now, which doesn't appear to be region-locked!

I can't watch Kawaii International because the narrator's voice makes me insane.

I used to watch Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's show on that channel but it ran its course. You could always count on her for a cuteness overload.

just watched Music Japan 05/27/2017 shown in states. guests include Flower, Lisa, a guy duo, Wanima, Aimer, and an older band I am trying to get more information on.
Sounded something like urufu?  The song they played was Bakayaro(spelling). Shazam failed me. They're  debut was in 1992. from what they showed on the screen it could be for a tv show?

Someone posted a bunch of polls in this 1990s J-pop group I belong to on mixi: top ten best-selling songs for each year, pick one. I was genuinely stumped when it came to the 1995 list:
