just use a proxy server. Or wait a bit and someone will make an firefox addon to get around it.

Well that could work, but a lot of people are too lazy to put that on or it maybe too complicated to set up proxy servers. Japanese companies may try to region block channel just limiting to Japan only (ie: Kalafina's YT channel is one of them). So I'm not sure if using proxy servers or using any add-on could work.

I mean what's the point for J-pop to get more international audiences if they're making accessibility near impossible.

I still think Japan is domestically focused. It's unfortunate as someone who has been a fan of Japanese music for a few years now, I have to go around, leap through many hoops to access content. Japan's really tightened their copyright in the last few years, likely because they're losing sales, and that's on literally everything. Anime, manga, music, general media. They're one of the few countries that don't rely as much on digital, elsewhere you generally don't see a lot of physical singles anymore, but Japan still sells them.

I think their business model is years behind tbh.

Proxies have been discussed, but that doesn't mean they'll work. Also, the loading time for MVs would be far longer due to the proxy speed. Effective unblockers are difficult to find. Take it from someone who spent years in school surfing proxies, there are never enough effective ones to go around.

If anyone's looking for alternate platforms, as far as J-music goes, there are a lot of videos on jpopsuki, though the loading time is rather slow unless you have good internet speed, secondarily there is, as mentioned earlier, musicplayon, which has archived a ton of J-MVs. Thirdly, for anyone looking for a general directory that feeds to multiple sides as well as has song lyrics, I'd recommend jpopasia. Those are best if you're more looking to watch MVs. For audio listening on my phone, I generally use obscure mp3 sites, mostly vietnamese based, but i don't believe I'm allowed to list them here. however, they're pretty decent for streaming audio, though some more recent releases may be region locked for the VN region.

Jpopsuki is already slow regardless how good your internet speed is. Also I was told the server for Jpopsuki is located in Africa which may explain why it so damn slow!!! Jpopasia is OK, but the problem is the forum is not quite active like K-pop one (ironically, the K-pop section of Jpopasia is really active) Also, J-pop is never going to get big like K-pop has gotten for the last few years. J-pop has a lot of accessbility issues and that genre is already been overshadowed by K-pop.

I can definitely confirmed AKB48 MVs are blocked in the US. Kalafina's YT channel is blocked in US and worldwide/ Some J-music MVs someone showed me I can say some of them are blocked while others aren't.

The first 2 worked, but I must warn you those are fan-uploaded so they can be taken down anytime. The 3rd one, it worked but all of AKB48 and their sister group YT channel are no longer accessible to fans in the US. I also have problem trying to watch Shina Ringo MVs on her Yt channel, I can only watch 2 of her MVs, have a look:

Your right about the back horn. A lot of live stuff is up. Cant find any good solutions. A vpn and proxy is the only bypass that is working so far. Didnt try a ff addon. Lol never heard of back horn before. They have some pretty good stuff.
