BOYSTYLE disbanded

Ikegami's voice reminds me of Nacchi & NAZE? is my favorite song of the day XD
Kei's 2 latest singles (Grow, NAZE?) http://www.sendspace.com/file/0rniry

Is there any English info anywhere about Sakura Seira? (this (http://seira.tv/) girl)

I've gotten interested in her, but all I see that can give me info is the Japanese wiki.

Is there a ranking for japanese music companies? 

I remember something like that was posted way back somewhere on H!P Questions, the rankings of the music entertainment companies, with UFA, Avex, Sony Entertainment Japan, Johnny's Jimusho...  but I think that was back in 2006 or something...

With ThePPN being down for quite a time, some J-music fans started with something similar, still in progress:

^the video isn't available anymore.. but the song might have been from AKB48? Since Shinoda Mariko is a member of that group.

Polyphonic Experiment in D
Berryz Koubou × Buono! × Watarirouka Hashiritai × Idoling!!!
mixed by DJ Kirarin Snow

Ahahaha. This just proves how stupid it is to quibble over which girl group is better, because they're all the SAME.  :lol: Got to say though, Rival and the Idolling!!! song were the standouts. But I loved how everything layered. Idolling!!! and AKB48 are really good at using that sort of harmonious choral sound, and I'm a sucker for it.

does anyone have any site suggestions that are along the lines of allkpop but for jpop instead?

i like how allkpop mentions commercials, ads, activities, guest appearances, etc for singers.
also how there's news on rookie singers and teasers for everything as well.

Post by: Saburo on August 16, 2011, 10:43:18 AM
I was grooving to an old Moritaka Chisato concert (OK they're ALL "old").  I then hit You Tube to see if my fave song from "Lucky 7 Live" was there.  Well it WAS but damn it was a three-year-old upload that looked all worn out compared with the other HD stuff to the side.

So I decided to make my own:

森高千里 「私の夏」 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrLw1fkBldI#)

"Third Party Content" copyright claims be damned!  This is "Watashi no Natsu" and it's #2 on my all-time fave Chisato song list.  Enjoy!

Saburo san, Chisato is absolutely lovely. And what is freaking me out is I am pretty sure I met her in April when I attended the Up-Front group charity event in Yokohama. I didn't put two and two together until watching your post. But I remember a really pretty and gracious woman who was about 40, and I knew she had to have been a performer, but her career predates when I started following J-pop, so I did not recognize her. I do remember she was very gracious when I thanked her (during the handshake event) and all of the other Up-Front team who came out on that rainy day to raise funds, and she very sincerely thanked me for coming. What a lady!!

Never heard of them though  :nervous
Title: THE LAND OF IDOLS
Post by: Saburo on June 06, 2015, 03:13:12 AM
A friend just sent this link (http://twitchfilm.com/2015/06/crowdfund-this-the-land-of-idols-explores-a-uniquely-japanese-phenomenon.html) about a project looking for funding: a documentary on J-idols.

Color me skeptical, but I wouldn't spend a dime on this. Everyone thinks they'll "get it right." Ahh, I doubt it but good luck to them anyway.

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?

Title: Favorite J-Pop best seller of 1995?
Post by: Saburo on March 16, 2018, 03:04:29 AM
Someone posted a bunch of polls in this 1990s J-pop group (http://mixi.jp/view_community.pl?id=216052) 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:
