I would like to introduce you to a new feature we came up with, the J-Music Contest! There you can vote for and discuss your favourite J-Music. It will include different theme's like f. ex. the Rock Theme or your Favourite Opening Song. Every Contest will last for a period of a month and the Song with the most votes will be featured HERE.
The first few themes are already decided but we gladly accept any suggestions/ideas for either songs which should be featured in a specific theme or a suggestion for a new theme.
Of course any upcoming questions can be asked too!
The first three themes will be:
- Favourite Opening Song of the Fall Season 2011
- Favourite of the Oricon J-Pop Charts (most likely a voting between the first 15 songs of the Charts)
- STAR theme (featuring favourite songs of the staff or artists/translators/reviewers)
[The bold theme's the one currently running.]
You can find the current Contest HERE.
I hope all of you will enjoy this feature! Feel free to spread news about it, every participating member is a welcome enrichment

Welcome everyone to the first J-Music Contest!
Our first theme will feature the Anime Opening Songs of the Fall Season 2011 .
It's up to you to decide which one is the best of all!
The Voting will consist of two Rounds:
Round 1: Starts from today and will end in two weeks (November the 1st). In this round you can vote for a maximum of 3 songs. The 10 songs with the most votes will continue to the next Round. If there are less than 10 song voted for, only the songs which got at least one vote will continue to the next round.
Round 2: Starts at November the 1st and will end on November the 15th. In this round you can only vote for 1 song. The song with the most votes wins and will be featured HERE.
If you wish to be reminded when a new round starts/an old one ends I can send you a PM. Just say so and I will try my best to inform you on the specific dates.
Of course it's not just about voting, you can discuss the songs to your heart's content and tell us your opinion. Just make sure to stay friendly, any form of bashing/flaming won't be tolerated.
Here's the playlist will all the songs, I hope you will enjoy listening to them~
Please inform me if a song should not work, I will try to find a new link as soon as possible.
Also there are some things to note:
1. Bakuman Season 2: Very difficult to find a source so the first 30 seconds are actually part of the ep, you should only consider the song who starts around 0:30. Again I will replace it if I find another source.
Edit: Added "real" Guilty Crown OP
And now have fun voting and discussing!

But if you want my real opinion. You've posted a list of over 20 songs, which I'm sure 9 out of 10 people don't know, and if you expect them to vote, they should know all of the songs. Now we just use simple math to understand that 20 songs x 3-4 minutes each = 60-80 minutes of wasted time only to listen to new songs.
The idea of this thread is good, but I think you should either make the list smaller, or choose more famous songs for starters. You can still add more later.
well isn't one of the purposes to get to know songs you don't know? Just throwing in famous songs is kinda boring too. That's why I made a playlist, fairly easy to listen to the unknown songs.
I would agree about the time part but that's why I only used the openings (most full songs aren't even out yet) so each song is only 1,30 min long, means 26 minutes to listen to all songs. Not that much a problem I suppose, it's not like you need to listen to all of them in a row. Still next time it will have less competitors, could very well be a reason if you don't know that the songs are only 1,30 min long.
Thanks for the advice gamma!
We should have another J-Music Contest, but this time we should make it about the OP/ED songs of this winter anime season. In fact, I would like to nominate the following song as one of the contenders :
Brave 10 OP
