Here’s where I’ll be discussing everything music, from catchy idol tracks, to Japanese alternative rock songs. Probably will mainly be Japanese-based but if I’m in the mood, there will be the possibility of some other culture to appear.

**if you’re reading on the WP reader, this post a lot looks better if you’re on my actual site, just sayin’ Hi there, it’s been a bit since I wrote a J-music album review, but in the meantime while I’m still working on my second installment of the “J-Music Exchange/Rate” segment Leap250 and I started ...

Uzu ni Naru/渦になる by Kinoko Teikoku [Album Review] | J-Music Exchange/Rate

Hi there, long time no see. As you may know from my last post, finals/exam week came and went and once I finished up my junior year of high school, I really wasn’t in the mood to write anything, thus I took another week off. However, I’m actually feeling guilty for not doing anything last ...

Familia by sumika [Album Review]

Alright so since MyAnimeList is down for maintenance for like a few more days or years or so, I really just can’t continue with a particular post I’m writing right now.

A List of Great Openings + Endings from Anime I’ve Never Seen/Finished

I really like the music that anime presents to us. It can be catchy, emotional, soothing, intense and overall, fun to listen to. So when it comes to openings and endings (and even OSTs and insert songs), I always look forward to them, even if I’m half way or even 100 episodes into an anime ...

BanG Dream’s Anime Song Covers Are Amazing

Rhythm games have been very popular over the years and most of the games we have seen in the past and present have originated or are from none other than Japan. Dance Dance Revolution, Beatmania, Taiko Drum Master, the list is endless with the creations of rhythm games in Japan.

Zenchi Zennou/全知全能 by Polkadot Stingray [Album Review]

One day while I was listening to my song compilation of random J-music that I discovered on Spotify, the last song on the playlist came to an end. If you’ve ever used Spotify before, after you’ve gone through all the songs in a playlist, it automatically plays music that is similar to what you just ...

Need Some J-Music Suggestions?

Ever since I got back into anime about a year ago, I started to become very much interested in the musical side of it such as the openings, endings and soundtracks. Not only do I listen to said OPs/EDs/OSTs pretty frequently now, but I began to dive deeper into the various bands and artists behind ...
