would you guys still enjoy a japanese song, IF you never even heard it at an anime intro??For example for me the song "colors" by FLOW is my favorite simply because it reminds me of code geass and it went well with the intro...HOWEVER, i wouldnt kno what i would have thought of the song if i just heard the song but never saw it go with Code geass.. i've been hearing a bunch of japanese songs and always find half of em bad....and then i think what would i have thought if it was in an anime intro? would i thought of it as an awesome song? or still the same average song?

I've been wondering the same thing for some time now.
Some people just love the artist for one song, aka an anime intro.
There are people that are totally fake fans and say 'Oh, this my favorite band. I just love their work!'
How can you be a fan when you've only heard one song???
Whenever someone posts a 'What is your favorite J-rock band?' thread in CR, people just reply the usual....
Asian Kung-Fu Generation, FLOW, Orange Range, etc. (some people didn't know of these bands until they appeared on Naruto)

Anyways.... I think I got lost somewhere along the lines.....
Um... most people are attracted to a song visually. Meaning, when they see the animation, they're totally into the song and they're completely focused on both.

^ There you go. When you said "it went well with the intro", it automatically mean that the animation caught your attention.

It's like the difference between a chapter and picture book. One book has words, the other has pictures.

Listen to some more FLOW, they're actually pretty good from time to time.

not really, hate to admit it, but even though an intro or ending is good, I listen to it because it reminds me of the anime or the opening or ending itself

i actually sometimes use the anime intros for references, but afterwards i listen to the whole album and then judge wether i like it or not...and it also depends upon the song itself, the rythm rhe melody etc....

IIf I liked the style of the song, I might still like it even if I didn't hear it at an anime intro.

if i hadn't started hearing japanese songs in intros of anime i probably would have hated it.
but i love japanese songs now and it doesn't have to be in an anime show for me to like it. just found a new artist - Rurutia that's not her real name hahahah but that's what she's known as.
