Can anyone give me any advice for how to legally listen to Japanese music? I've liked a few of the OP and ED songs for some shows I've been watching--specifically the Bodacious Space Pirate ED "Lost Child" by Momoiro Clover Z and the Madoka ED "Magia" by Kalafina for example. I would be interested in possibly purchasing these songs and listening to some other songs by those bands, but I haven't really found any way to do that. For example neither of those bands have any songs on iTunes that I've seen, and Kalafina has all their YouTube videos blocked in the US.

Any general advice regarding where to discover, listen to, or buy Japanese music would be appreciated. Also, specific advice regarding the songs and bands mentioned above would be appreciated.

CDjapan is a good site to visit, though you'll be paying more than your usual CD for it. Digitally you can try Amazon.jp, I'm not sure if they refuse non-Japanese debit cards like Itunes does, I haven't tried. Also visiting the sites of the bands you like will usually direct you to where you can purchase their merchandise; that's where I always go anyways.

Thanks for the reply. I've tried going to the bands' websites, but the sites tend to be in Japanese.

Yes, but usually looking at the link URLs will show which tab is "merch" or "store". Sometimes the merch page is a simple e-mail (depends on how big the bands you're looking at are), which is always fun because you get to communicate through google translate if you don't know any Japanese XD but it's still doable! Are you looking for any specific albums?

There was this MV on tv, and it was this Canto-singer. He was fairly young and new i think, and he was singing (pop) and there were various scenes, for example some of them were him on a couch, driving a car, singing and the background is the sky and clouds, and one of them is like, a dark-ish room with jar looking things in the background. http://www.buybeatsbydre.com

I was looking at some CD's today and realised that Best HIT NARUTO is out of print at the 3 main sites play-asia/yesasia/cdjapan.
This has been out since 2010 but limited edition which inc. a DVD of the OP/ED. And as it has been a while now, still no sign of the re-release without the dvd. Now i'm getting worried that they may not re-release it. They did it with other 3 collection cd's even with the first Bleach compilation BLEACH THE BEST but the other 2 still no sign of a re-release without the dvd. If anyone knows anything this will be very helpful thank you.

Does anyone know of a site that gives a list of the all new kpop releases each week? I miss getting to see what's been released since ihoney and kpop7 stopped downloads. I don't care about downloads but I do like seeing who did what. Now all I can find are blurbs about what the top name bands are doing. Feels like we're missing out on a lot of hidden gems now

And, does anyone know where I can buy D's Huang di cd? I haven't found it on cdjapan or yesasia


I'd like to know too...I used to look at kpop charts on YouTube

You can check allkpop.com for the updates on new kpop songs and most recent popular ones.
http://www.jpopasia.com/charts/

^ this chart is KPOP Mnet chart where its pretty popular. Thing is that if rookies aren't popular or any person you think you like is popular they probably won't be in the chart.

For me I use

http://www.gaonchart.co.kr/
^ for me I like this site :] because you can see the charts of this weeks popular songs and also some new releases.


~

BTW : If you become an allkpop fan , please remember to think/type intelligently and read carefully. The site has mindless users who jump to conclusions or join bandwagons of hate. The writers/authors can also make misleading titles that instigate many flamewars :S so good luck if you join.
