a personal favorite is Hirai Ken ... a soul'ish type along the lines of the Gospelers and Chemistry.

Why are only women showing up recently?

How about Dragon Ash, GLAY, Gackt, and what not?

Well, there are lots more, but i think these are the most popular. I've probably forgotten a few... :D

Too bad nobody's voting though...

Momoe Yamaguchi?? She's not singing anymore is she?

And Aikawa has indeed been too busy giving birth to a healthy baby boy (at least i think it was a boy), but it's good to see she's back again.
One of the first JPop cd's i bought was Paradox. After ID I lost track of her because i was discovering so much other good Japanese artists. :)

thank you for warm welcome^__^*

yes, aikawa is busy with her family at the moment... someone told me she wants to release a new rock-album this spring, but, I fear^^;;, it will take a little bit more time to record that first...
I like the way the new maxisingle looks like... really crazy %DD~~*haha* I'm curious what it will sound like *jumpsarround*^^"

Yamaguchi is also busy with family, she has 2(?) sons, hasn't she..?? But it was long time ago...-.-
No, she's not singing anymore... BUT I LIIIIKE HER MUSIC SO MUCH WHATEVER WILL HAPPEN!! XD~~~ ( I like that song "E=MCツイ" a lot^^;)

No, let's just keep this poll a female singer only poll.
If i would add bands and male singers to this list it would grow a bit too long. I'll make seperate polls for these later.

Well all the ones I listen to are on the list but I picked Utada Hikaru because I started listening to her first. Bonnie Pink is great so is Ayumi Hamasaki and Zard.

Puffy is not a solo-artist.
I'll create some other polls with bands and male artists soon (or feel free to do so yourself).

Yuki is indeed the one from Judy and Mary.

Greetings! 🙂

That was a really tough choice, as so many of my favorite artists were included there... but I had to go with Sheena Ringo. I love the "Shouso Strip" album... her music is so awesome and innovative!

However, I might have had to change my vote had I seen either Momoe Yamaguchi or Yuming...

👍

Koji, why have you restricted the pol to a single choice ? I'd like to be able to choose all the ones I like. I chose Ayu, as she is surely my favorite (but I don't know well all the singers listed).

@Rhymester:
What did you think of her latest album? I heard a lot of people complaining that it was too different from the first two.

i like it a lot! I love Tokyo nights, Sakura Drops, Hikari..they are pretty good.

although i like her earlier style, like for Automatic, i think the style she has now is still nice and unique! I wouldn't mind if she switches back to her older style though haha
