    Well, one of the most famous Japanese groups, internationally, is Vocaloid . . . but it's quite an individualist taste. Basically, the singers a fictitious, and all the voices are computer generated. Some love it, some hate it. Personally . . . I don't mind it, but it's not amazing. Some of the biggest songs are Cantarella and Rolling Girl.

    Other, more conventional songs are:

    - Kosaka Riyu - Guilty Sky 

    - On/Off - Futatsu no Kodō to Akai Tsumi

    - Melissa (don't know the artist, but I know it's the FMA opening).

    These are basically anime openings I like, but they're from genuine mainstream artists. If you don't already, you may wanna try watching subbed anime. Even when you're not trying, you end up picking some Japanese up. (Contrary to popular belief, there is as much variation as with standard TV programmes, and anime is NOT just for kids.)

    Well, this band can be pretty dark at times (understatement), but Sound Horizon is a good band. They do a lot of spoken word in addition to singing, so you can hear where the accent is on a lot of words (Japanese singing doesn't usually indicate where the accent is, unlike English). They also use a lot of kanji (including unusual ones) in their lyrics, so it's good for that.

    If you decide to check them out, I'd recommend starting out with Roman if you're new to Japanese-style music (especially "Miezaru Ude" and "Hiiro No Fuusha"). If you're into choral stuff, Moira would be a good album to check out.

    Hope that helps!

    I actual have an entire number of anime songs, many times from shows i've got considered. I basically checked and there are seventy 4 such songs in my record. distinctly much all of them use woman voices, yet there are some respectable male-voiced ones from Fullmetal Alchemist, dying notice and Code Geass.
