Thanks to Kisu for the idea for the thread!
For all the J-Music/K-music fans and karaoke fans here on MH, this is a thread to talk about J-Music/K-music and Karaoke and also to post recordings of you or other J-music/K-music fans singing your favorite J-songs/K-songs.
Btw, here’s a site where you can practice singing karaoke before posting your recording in this thread.
And here’s a video of someone karaoking (or making a cover) of Paper Moon by Tommy Heavenly6. The song is one of the openings from Soul Eater.
The girl who is singing the song has a pretty good voice and she did a great job karaoking the song, IMO.
Paper Moon - Nekonekochii
Four Seasons – Namie Amuro (Sumi) The girl karaoking this song did such an incredible job that she has inspired me to karaoke that song as well. ^_^

I haven't come across any really good clips to share atm. I remember I came across one a while back but I can't find it anymore on youtube. I'll post it if I find it again.
Just a thought ~ maybe if we can link/direct people to some j-pop instrumentals, there might be a greater chance that someone may just record themselves doing a karaoke!?
I'll still be on the look out for some clips to share.
Here are two more covers:
These two fans are karaoking Tobira no Mukou he by YeLLOW Generation and they did a fantastic job karaoking that song.
Tobira no Mukou E by HollowRikuJPop
I really like his voice and his singing. He sounds sweet and manly at the same time. Me likey.
Tobira no mukou e by Lorihime
She has a great voice, her voice is very melodious.
"An instrumental is a musical composition or recording without lyrics, singing, or any other sort of vocal input" - Arigatou wiki! xD
So yeah, basically if we could offer links/suggestions to the instrumental-version(s) of some of the more popular J-Pop songs, I think there'll be better chance of someone recording a lil karaoke session. There's plenty of clips on youtube but for some reason they keep taking them down because of copyright issues or something. You'll be able to find more Japanese karaoke's if you type it in japanese lol.
One way of trying to find better results is by typing the name of the artist/song preferably in Japanese lol, followed by the term "karaoke" in Japanese again. I'm sure the results would be better that way. I'll test it out later on and see what I can find. There must surely be J-Pop-related blogspots created by fans that may have some kind of karaoke clips/performances available to share.
These kind of threads take some time, so I'm sure we'll get more activity soon.

A Japanese friend showed me this cover of Shiina Ringo's "Onaji Yoru".
Onaji Yoru by soulsistah100 on YT
A very nice song by the way~
@ Totinona: She is amazing!! Her voice is really beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us.

These guys are awesome!!! This cover is so good that I can’t choose between this one and the original, I love them both!!
Itazura na Kiss ED 2 - Jikan yo Tomare [Cover by Niamara123abc]
The second ending of Itazura na Kiss (Jikan yo Tomare) is one of my favorite anime songs so I have been singing that song lately; however; my singing pales in comparison with Niamara123abc’s. That girl’s voice is so wonderful and she does a great job covering that song.
Sounds like fun
You all will be blessed by my epic voice when I get another mic
Ok...so about what I said back in August haha:
I initially just started out searching the usual way and you do end up coming across a few interesting karaoke clips but they're not so good and most of the time it's a japanese cover of an english song lol.
Anyway...so I decided to type in "jpop カラオ" which, if I am correct, translates to "jpop karaoke" xD and it fricking worked! haha I couldn't believe it. Some Japanese Google translations actually work! Just not for spoilers and some other stuff too.
So I came across three cool clips:
- Shabondama ~ Morning Musume performed by LadyAurora
- Gundam SEED ED performed by eririn0312
- Song for me ~ Ohno Satoshi performed by mecchagyaru
Some lack in sound quality but they were the few that stood out for me. ^_^
I’m currently watching Great Teacher Onizuka and I’ve become a big fan of this series as well as of its first opening song and first and second ending songs. Below is a very cool fan cover of the second ending song of GTO:
Shizuku (Great Teacher Onizuka Second Ending) - Male Cover Version – perfomed by Shiroukage
Another great fancover:
Regret - Mai Hoshimura (D.grayman Ending theme) by I3oA
Here’s another cover by a very brave fan that even showed herself while singing the song, but she does it so well that I understand why she had no problem letting people know it was her behind the fancover.
D.Grayman ending theme- cover by Deerdz
Here’s a Russian fancover of one of my favorite songs from Ayumi Hamasaki. Len not only has a beautiful voice but she manages to capture the feeling and emotion of the original song and that is not an easy thing to do. I like Len’s version of "Moments" just as much as I like Ayumi’s.
【Len】 Moments (rus)
Without Words - Park Shin Hye (English Cover) by alloha00
Without Words - Park Shin Hye (Spanish Cover) by Belennnshi.
I have been singing ^ that song during most of the afternoon and evening today. I really connected with that song. Park Shin Hye does an amazing job singing that song, but Bel does an incredible job as well. I was so inspired by their wonderful singing that I even recorded myself singing that song.

Resuscitated Hope - German Fancover [GoSick] by Nagaru16
Amazing fancover! If it wasn’t because I watched Gosick so I know the original song is in Japanese, I would have no problem believing this was the original song from the anime. Her voice is great! Her singing really captures the feeling behind the song and the series.
