I've always been a fan of Anime and Manga but recently I've been getting into Japanese music. JPOP and rock as well as more traditional music...but I don't really know who to listen to. So...if anyone could recommend some names of artist or cd's I should pick up it would be greatly appreciated!

Hmm i really like Maximum the hormone, they did the Death Note openings.
I'm not really sure if they fit you, they're more metal than rock but you can always give em a try =D

For Jrock I would recommend The Gazette
Their songs such as Reila, Cassis, Guren etc are awesome..
and there's Gackt..his songs are nice too..
and you can't forget Miyavi..
and also Versailles..They are awesomee..

As for Jpop..
Exile are amazing..
Ayumi, Mika Nakashima, Rurutia, Fukui Mai and omg The Gospellers!
