It's not big in Wisconsin. Hell, last election we could have voted to have it banned. Weird uh?

Did that happen anywhere else or just here?

You voted to have Karaoke banned... Wow... and I thought voting was a waste of time

it's a pretty typical thing for japanese cd's, etc., to have a karaoke section or karaoke version of the singles. it's not unusual, then, for animes to have karaoke versions of the theme songs - they just don't release those versions in overseas versions all the time because it's not that big of a subculture.

[karaoke bars are all over the place in japan, and they're completely different than anything you'd find in the u.s.. in tokyo, they generally consist of private rooms with couches, etc, that you and your karaoke buddies go into, where you can order your songs over the bar's networked computer system, which are then streamed to your room's giant flatscreen or whatever. you can order your drinks and food, too, which they'll deliver to you kinda like room service. you might think differently of karaoke if that kinda thing were offered over here, huh?]

not that i karaoke much. generally, my singing sounds best in the shower, so i try to keep it there.

Hahaha Don't worry I'm in the same boat there... I Sing along with songs sometimes with friends tho... I wouldn't call it karaoke but when we're driving somewhere we might get a lil tune going.

I love going karaoking! <3 With a group of friends, it's a lot of fun. Of course, it's best to go to the karaokes where you get your own room, not public singing.

I've noticed a growing trend in some of the anime I've been watching on this site and thats the addition of Karaoke. Can someone tell me whats so fun about singing along to songs? is it really that much of a crazy in Japan? I can't presonally see it being a fun pass time. Although I have been known to break out in song and dance in a drunken stooper So to sum it up is it that big of a craze in Japan?

It's pretty fun after a few drinks, but there's no way I could do it sober.

I have enjoyed participating in karaoke whenever I have had the chance to do so. Unfortunately for me, there's nowhere around where I live to do it. Of course, I do musical theatre up the wazoo, and I'm the singer in a band, so I like to sing in public anyway.
My favorite episode of Tenchi Universe is episode 16, where the gang buys a karaoke machine for their ship, exhausting all their money. Oh, those karaoke fiends!
