The thing is in 2018, cross platform … Continue reading Voices that potentially sell more than their names
I had reminded myself that I would eventually get back to this list. Though instead of updating the post, I thought that it would be somewhat cooler if I go about...

I was basically looking for recommendations after … Continue reading Vocaloids and I…
On the other hand, not so much in J-Pop outside of anime.... Note that I used the term popular twice in the title.

The time when anime songs happen to be pure J-Rock is now rare. ALL OFF however managed to save us some time with their great tunes. https://www.youtube.com/embed/lZLEXj52lcc This seriously bad-ass rock song is used as an ending to the anime Mob Psycho 100.
