    AKB48, Itano Tomomi’s spotlight and new CD jacket covers released!

    The Jacket covers for Itano Tomomi‘s Solo Debut Single “Dear J” have been revealed in ORICON STYLE on the 22nd. All 3 covers show different pictures of Itano’s face from up-close and each include different coupling songs and special movies enclosed in the DVDs.

    Excluding temporary projects and songs released under different names, this is Itano’s first solo debut under Akimoto Yasushi, AKB48‘s founder. The song “Dear J” consists of up-tempo dance music and the MV includes a luxurious stage setting that has pulled out Itano’s charm.

    The coupling music for Type-A is “Tunnel”, Type-B is “Stay by my side”, and Type-C is “Thank you”. The DVD included in each type includes not only an MV for the song but also another special video. Type-A: “Tomomi Itano Collection” Type-B: “Tomomi Itano Interview” Type-C: “Making of Tomomi Itano”

    Also, in honor of this solo debut, Itano Tomomi has been chosen to become the new image character for the Samantha Thavasa Group.

    Hey ZERO PHOENIX! Thanks for the awesome recs. I never heard or came across the Japanese band; Back-On before and I'm very impressed with what I've heard form them so far. New World is the one that stands out most for me. Other notable mentions would be: Drive, Grab and 50/50.

    As for Forces of Nature; they're awesome. That "Hiji Suru Style" tune is the shiz! A fantastic record! I love the funky bass in it. It's definitely a jam! ^^

    Yo Blai!

    It was used for the first Naruto Shippuden OP; I'm sure many are familiar with the song and have heard it before but haven't paid much attention to the actual group or have taken an interest in them haha. =P I quite liked "Innocent Word" and "Where are you from...?" from them.

    Definitely Malice Mizer and SID all the way.
    I love the intricate melodies and accompaniment in Malice Mizer and I love the lead singer's voice in SID, so strong and powerful.

    Re: Visual Kei

    My friend is a HUGE fan of visual-kei and a song he recommended to me was Eliza from Vidoll. KHR has quite a bit of theme songs from visual-kei artists such as LM.C (BOYS AND GIRLS and 88) and SuG. Most of the videos for SuG has been taken down.

    My preference for visual-kei seems to be colourful ones with a fashion sense similar to scene kids.

    X - Japan is the best thing from the Japanese rock music groups, many come close, but still the drummer/pianist dude, rocks them all, I just wanted to say they are my favorite ban form Japan.

    Beautiful songs, and good mixing of English and Japanese.

    Then you must like oshare kei more than visual kei. One of my favorite oshare kei band is Himeyuri.

    Here are the lists of all the J-pop/idols and J-rock artists who are confirmed to be safe from the earthquake.

    Although you may be relieved, please continue to feel compassion for those who have died, are missing or lost their homes & loved ones.

    GLAY contributes $240,000 USD to disaster relief
    by bazinga on March 14, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Source: tokyohive

    On March 14th, J-rock band GLAY donated 20 million yen (~$240,000 USD) to aid with the disaster relief through the Asahi Shimbun Social Welfare Organization.

    Members TAKURO, HISASHI, JIRO, and TERU expressed, “In midst of the continuing aftershocks, we hope we can be of even a little help to the people who are suffering in the disaster … We will continue praying that the damages don’t escalate further.”

    GLAY has actively done charity work in the past, keeping in mind the following message: “Is there something we can do for society, other than singing?“. Last year, they donated 93 uniforms (valued at ~$12,000 USD) to students at a middle school in the bankrupt city of Yubari, with TAKURO and TERU handing them out personally. When Miyazaki prefecture had a problem with foot-and-mouth disease, they donated 1 million yen (~$12,000 USD) through a local news agency.

    GACKT organizes charity “SHOW YOUR HEART” for the earthquake
    by bazinga on March 13

    Source: tokyohive

    It’s been revealed that GACKT has organized an emergency charity, "SHOW YOUR HEART", to raise disaster relief funds for the 2011 Japanese earthquake.

    As the representative for “SHOW YOUR HEART”, GACKT stated, “We decided to organize the charity as it was something that even we could start [in order to help]. We want everyone to lend us their strength. Although individuals may not be able to do much, if everyone works together, it becomes a lot of power. In this sort of time, we need to have the courage to lend a helping hand.”

    On the “SHOW YOUR HEART” official webpage, many celebrities, including Shinya (from LUNA SEA), Fujiwara Norika, DAIGO (from BREAKERZ), and Haruna Ai, have left supportive messages.

    Donations can be made through a direct deposit in Japan to the “SHOW YOUR HEART” bank account. The funds collected will be distributed to victims through the Japanese Red Cross and local community associations.

    X JAPAN’s YOSHIKI is donating his piano for earthquake relief
    by bazinga on March 13, 2011

    Source: tokyohive

    On March 13th, it was revealed that X JAPAN’s leader, YOSHIKI, will be auctioning off his beloved “crystal piano” to aid in the disaster relief effort for Japan.

    YOSHIKI, who normally lives in Los Angeles, flew to Tokyo in order to oversee his fashion show, as well as to record songs. He felt the tremors of the earthquake in his recording studio on the 11th. After watching news reports, he was shocked by the large-scale damage across Japan, and decided that he “must do something.”

    The “crystal piano” has YOSHIKI’s logo engraved on it and according to experts, “is a priceless item.” His “crystal piano” often accompanies the star during their concerts all over the world. The entire sum raised from the auction will be given to disaster relief organizations, although detailed information will follow at a later date. The musician has also expressed an intent to collect disaster relief donations through his foundation, YOSHIKI FOUNDATION AMERICA.

    On Twitter, YOSHIKI reassured fans, saying, “Thank you, everyone, for worrying about me. Although there are some friends I haven’t been able to contact, I’ve been able to reach all my family members. In order to support everyone, I am planning to extend my stay in Japan. LOVE YOU…”

    As long as the song is a J-song, you can nominate any kind of genre. The amount of winners depends on you guys, specifically, on the votes. I’ll create a poll with all the nominees and then you will need to vote for your favorite song.

    Sorry, its my first time seeing this contest
    No need to apologize, thank you! Thank you for asking those questions, Zeltrax!
    Since this isn’t the first time that we have a contest on the J-show, I just kind of assumed everyone knew the rules already. Sorry!

    Re: The J-Music Show!

    the thing is..I never knew something like this happens in the forum

    But now that I do, I'm ready to fight and nominate
    Anyway, since its my first time I hope to see more people entering, all shall bow to the greatness of jpop !
    Can I help spread the news ? (I'm already doing it tho)

    Since the deadline is sunday(that's early), I have to make my choice quick but there's so many songs..
    There should be more songs up there too!
