permalink I one day saw Hana Yori Dango on TBS and started watching it, but was maybe 3-4 episodes in. I went on the internet to find the episodes becasue I missed some and started falling in love with it :totallylove: especially the theme song. I wanted to know who the song was by, so I had to google it and yeah :totallylove: :laugh: I don't quite remember how I found the jrock Miyavi stuff though...*thinks* :lipsrsealed:

permalink For me it was when I asked my friend from Holland one day if she had some interesting music cause I was getting bored with what I had. She sent me Jibun Kakumei PV by Miyavi. Took us all night before it was sent. But as soon as I listened to it, I was hooked. :D
After that she gave me Gazette and Dir En Grey, after that I was so into it I found things for myself. :)

permalink Okay first heard J-Music through Naruto. Didn't really get into it until I joined Veoh. I was watching Soul Eater and I liked the beginning song for it so I looked it up. Then I started clicking randam videos this user had on their account. ... this is how Gazette came into my life and so did my love for J-Rock :D :RBstickout:

permalink I remember it clearly! xD

I was sitting on my couch, just playing with some music, then I clicked something on the television (On demand stuff rules!) And it was a L'Arc En Ciel song, I can't remember the name of it unfortunatly. But I remember the video! xD

Hyde was in a corner and it was outside, there was fencing around him... And that's pretty much the video, other then the whole band getting together occasionally.

But then it went to like, Gazette and Kinya Kotani (Thanks to gravitation) There is one anime I watched that had awesome music, but I could never find it ANYWHERE! D: I still can't.

permalink to be honest, the first time I was exposed to ANY type of jpop was when I started watching Bleach...and before I started liking the music, I was really into the anime haha and then the Opening and ending themes grew on me, so I downloaded them, and in the process of me looking for the music online I came across JPA!!! and thats when I truly started to really like Jpop xDDDD

permalink during my childhood, i just listen to j-songs in anime opening and ending songs...

on one lazy afternoon of year 2006, my japino cousin lent me a cd of mika nakashima when i told him i got tired listening to my cds.

i found it weird at first to listen to a song which i cannot fully understand. it was such a blur...but later on, the music and the lyrics sound clearer and i started liking it despite the fact that i don't understand the lyrics.

permalink i remember i always watch cardcaptor sakura, dragonball and digimon when i was around 7 or 8. but at that time i wasn't into j-music much. but i can sing along the soundtrack. and few years back i saw [former] hey! say! 7 on music station and started to get hooked with je boys especially. that's how i found kat-tun and everyone. i also started watching bleach anime, [usually i just read the manga] and i found yui and aqua timez and been loving them since... while i was looking for yui's lyrics i came across this extremely cool side and had been keeping up-to-date with j-music....
[too long, hee hee... :RBstickout: ]

permalink Eh...well I "role-play" on myspace,so one day I went to this other roleplayer's MySpace [he roleplays as Yumehito :totallylove:] and I noticed his song was in Japanese,but at first I was just kind of creeped out by it. :joops:
I went to look up Ayabie just out of curiousity and noticed it was a Japanese band so I was like. "Eh,whatever."
Then another day I went to his profile again and he had TheMe by Ayabie as his profile song,and I liked it a lot!
So I went to YouTube looked up the video,watched it and fell in love with Jrock :giggle:
Yep yep.
And I'm glad that happened.hehe.

permalink [i]Randomness.
I think I was on YouTube searching for some video. (I forget which.) and then suddenly An Cafe comes up,and I was all like "WTF?".
I mean,I was a tad freaked out at first.I had never listened to any music other than music from England or the USA.
But then I started listening to them even more and I fell in love. :RBheart:
After that,I searched for more Jrock and Jpop. :D
