This includes background music from anime and such.

I'm just a little curious since most of the people here watch anime, but it seems like most people only listen to music from their own country or other countries that speak the same language.

For me, the music is one of things that draws me to watch anime.

i really like japanese indie music! if you are looking for some japanese stuff to listen to just go on 8tracks.com and type japanese (plus something else if you want). My favorite band is Soutaisei Riron! i love them. the singer, etsuko, is amazing. i think she did a few anime openings and endings.

She did! Her name is Etsuko Yakushimaru and she did the openings for Arakawa Under the Bridge and Mawaru Penguindrum as well as a few other openings and endings here and there. The songs she did for Mawaru Penguindrum feature her singing with a full orchestra and they're unbelievable! I love her voice, she's definitely one of my favorite singers along with Yanagi Nagi and Lia. Go listen to the full version of "Boys, Come Back to Me" ("Shounen yo ware ni Kaere" in Japanese) if you haven't yet.

Vocaloid and songs from anime take up 99.9% of my music library.

I've got a pretty good split between that and other music

I never finished it, it kept switching around from super serious to absurdly stupid so much that I couldn't take it, though I mean to finish it eventually.

Anyways, Yanagi Nagi did a bunch of songs with supercell and did the ending of Bakemonogatari as well as Jormungand and one of the Naruto Shippuuden endings. Lia sang the opening and ending to Clannad ~After Story~, the opening to Angel Beats, Air and a bunch more. You'll probably enjoy her singing if not all her songs.
