i want jap songs better than american songs cuz jap singers has a good voice.. and also american are not good at dubbing like in FMA they sound corny but when u watch it jap version its very cool...

and the very most important thing...
ANIME are for japanese and CARTOONS for america.. america S*cks

Ok people pay attention to the question... it's not asking whether japanese people singing in English is better than the original japanese singing. It's whether or not American Music (like should bands like Disturbed or Staind or like what they did for the ending of Paradise Kiss or the Opening to Speed Grapher) should be used as openings. Why is that soooo hard for people to understand??? Dubbing and Subbing should NOT even come up in this topic.

Actually I wouldn't care whether the opening done either in english or japanese although for the most part the japanese does sound better and also its easier to remember the lyrics to also when you feel like singing to the songs you know.

yeah the japanese songs are much much much better. i never read the translation either, for some reason i always read the japanese words and not the english.

only english song i can remember was in LAIN and that song was pretty okish.

I prefer Japanese song because I'm used to it and I'm not comfortable when its not Japanese.

i will side with the japanese songs.

it's catchy.

and english openings mostly,

doesn't sound right at all.

and i'm amazed at how japanese pronounce the words.

they sometimes combine two words in one.

We are not talking about custom songs just for an anime, we are talking about current top hit songs (any genre). I'm sure if you watch some type of shonen anime, you could stick some kind of rock song in there or maybe if its a drama you could throw some R&B in there. I have not heard any english songs in japanese anime but I think it could be a good idea.

Seriously stop man, I remember there are some few anime with english song as opening.

The result was really a big failure; just like the threadstarter. Stop the caps lock because it is generally rude and annoying. That's all to it; all people here can type normally.. so why not you?

Anyway, I really hate it when a anime opening put as a english song unless the anime is dubbed (anyway if its dubbed I wouldn't see it either). To me, when english is in anime; not suit at all. The matching are just wrong; anime are specifically made for japanese (only) I think. But if once in a while like POT (Prince Of Tennis), when ryoma say "You still have lots lots more to learn"; that would be fine.
