What got you into jrock/jpop?

for me, a friend of mine started lisening to this pop style music, i thought to myself"ok, it sounds good, but i liek my rock better. i like my likin park, 311, etc." But after hearing DAI(do as infinity) i was like"wow, good music, catchy tunes." so while i would lisen to DAI at his house, from time to time, he got a another favorite. BoA, and Ayumi. There good, there video's are better than american video's. and its more techno in a way, which i like. So now i liek jpop/jrock. And thast my story. A friends influence. Whats yours?

*Pat pat* 's okay ^^ You're new here and it does get confusing sometimes, 'specially since it doesn't say costumes at the end of this forum title. ^__^

Seriously, why doesn't someone add the word COSTUMES to this forums title???? That would clear a lot of things up...

Its a fun thread, though...I do admit!

What got me into Japanese music was from my dear friends in 95-96. My echange students got me into a lot of various styles and types of music, that I kept getting into more and more different styles. ^_^ Ta daaa....

How I got in to J-rock...

I have been a die hard Final Fantasy fan since I was 11 years old.
So one day I found a picture of Squall and his model Gackt Camui when I was searching for Final Fantasy 8 pictures on kazaa. And I tought "Oh he was pretty, really pretty!!!" And since his name was there I began searching on the net for more pictures and information of him. Then I found out that he was a singer and now I LOVE him. He makes great music. This happend january this year (2003). That's my story on how I got into J-rock!

Because it's under the costume section of the forum.

well it all started with anime soundtracks of course
after i got hooked on konya-wa hurricane from the original BGC series i discovered an interview in an old newtype for the metal band show-ya since they did the closing theme for cleopatra DC. and from there i just kind of expanded, of course it helps to live near a japanese book store that sells/imports cds as well as a japanese video store that rents heyheyhey music champ.

i like do as infinities newer stuff(the more roock oriented) the older R&B stuff was just soso in my book.....but then again i am more into rock and metal and not as much into pop aside from a few jpop groups

I one day stumbled upon a Hamasaki Ayumi site and they had music samples. I listened to "Fly High" and was instantly hooked. I listened to more of her music and I got my friend hooked on her too. After some time she fell into J-rock and slowly pulled me in with Gackt. A Japanese neighbor of mine (older lady) has J-rock videos and offered to let me borrow any of them. Knowing my friend was currently obsessed with Malice Mizer I borrowed one of those (Merveilles) and we watched it. I had heard a couple of songs by them and thought they were "OK" but I'd never really seen them. After that concert I was like "Wow..." and fell in love with them. Then that slowly moved into Dir en Grey, which took time because they were a bit too extreme for me at the moment, but they just grew on me and I'm in love with them! ^_^ Now I'm trying to expand my J-rockness by listening to Baroque, X-Japan, hide, etc. etc...

I wrote about this in another thread... but it started out with anime and games music.... of course!
I got into Dir en Grey as soon as i first saw/heard them. But then I was always a weirdo.... XD
