In JPOP, I'd have to say Kotani Kinya. He's amazing!

Ahhh...So THAT'S what Orange Range is! I had NO idea what they were. Well, okay, I knew it was either rock or rap/rock/whatever, but yeah...I'll just shut up now... 😌

Ahhh...I see...And, umm, you spelled Psycho le Cemu like Psycho le Semu, so you might want to change that for him/her, since he.she probably doesn't know them and whatnot... 😌

Gravitation...? You mean the anime, right? If so, then that's Kotani Kinya... 😌

Umm...I haven't heard much from them, but some of their songs were the first Japanese music I've ever listened to. I don't find them particularly bad though from what I've heard.

I don't know just something about the singers music. It all has like the same beat to me and it's just so long going. In my opinion there are MUCH better artist out there other than those two.
