I'm just going to go ahead and say screw the Japanese music industry. The business side of it is the worst I've seen for anything.

My faves are still available for viewing. Fortunately, my favorite Japanese music are Hymmnos videos and other anime/game OSTs.

What about K-Pop videos? Besides, its not just Asian pop music I watch on Youtube. I sometimes have this strange urge to watch Eastern European music videos, Bulgarian singer Adriana Teodorova being my favorite. Also like tracking down 80's music videos I've not seen for ages on Youtube.

YouTube has gotten stupid over the years. Sure copyright is a thing but to region lock and paywall things sucks. Also linking YouTube to Google+ was a terrible idea.

Not a problem. Use a proxy, then just change regions. I do this for Netflix a lot since they have different movies and shows available in US and EU.

Wait, what just happened? This is bad cause there are a hell of a bunch of people in which youtube does not have a vevo channel for the person such as Yuki Kajiura, and because my dad set up Family Safety, I can't view niconico or other video sharing sites, if youtube no longer displays my favorite Japanese music, this means no more Japanese music for me cause youtube is my only video/music sharing site that is not blocked by family safety.

Ugh I wanna punch whoever on youtube thought of this in the face right now!!!!!

Sorry guys after doing some research it seems only some official Japanese channels have blocked access to their videos. When you attempt to view those videos you get the message "The uploader has not made this video available in your country." It apparently has to do with youtubeRed, which is a new youtube subscription service and is causing copyright issues. Anyways sorry for freaking you guys out with my misinformation and hopefully youtube fixes these issues!

Example of songs that have been blocked

As I keep saying, most JP records don't care about westerners esp an American audience, and most Japanese PVs aee outright blocked if fan uploaded on YT which makes access almost already impossible, and most JP Record labels don't post the full MVs either bc they think that'll somehow entice consumers to buy their ridiculously overpriced physical singles. America isn't their market and it's clear they really don't have much interest in making it their market for music, which is why so little Japanese music is available on US based services and why diehard fans import everything. Anyway, bleh, I hate Japanese record companies for the most part an their attitudes towards business in general, let alone westerners, but this is also a dick move on Youtube's part as well, YouTube RED was an will continue to be a bad idea and I hope it dies a swift death. Preferably sooner rather than later.
