From Utada Net.com // News –
Ray’s Take: Any real fans out there? I’ve listened to maybe one of her albums in the past but to me, J-pop singers all sound pretty much similar to one another. They have similar voice range even. Of course I’d love to hear any comments on this because I can’t exactly tell singers apart sometimes. In any case, for Eva fans who just want to hear some good J-pop, it seems like she will be touring 10 cities in US.

Dirty desire… oh dirty desire.. let me fee ya… no haters ne? Utada’s voice is slightly nasel compared to others, but she’s got great talent. I waited about 13 hours for her Sephora event last time in NYC. I like her Japanese songs more though.
@animemiz – glad to hear a real fan’s opinion. This is my weak area (J-pop) in Japanese culture. I hope the tickets won’t be hard to get!
I am a fan, but by no means.. however, I kinda bow to my other acquaintances more rabid actions. I was thinking about this earlier, but even my friends tell me I was pretty late on the news. So I got scooped, even though I think I mentioned this news to Mori.
I believe I dabble in way too many areas… but still I will definitely make a stance to go and grab those tickets.. ^_^
@ animemiz – I see, I guess you’ve become our news source, too, eh? 🙂 I’m thinking she will probably come to the LA area and I’ll be living around there by next year, baby!
O_O!!!! GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well I was having a sleepless night.. so lucky!!!!!!!!!!!
Great News. Now if she would only get a venue worthy of her. Hope! Hope!
Utada is great. A lot of her work has a surprisingly mature tone compared to the rest of her compatriots who are in similar levels of popularity.
Just want to clarify the most easily misunderstood aspect of ‘j-pop’: j-pop is simply a blanket term for ‘popular music.’ So even polka or opera or jazz and so on can be simply referred to as j-pop…as long as it get’s to a certain degree of popularity and mold.
Some examples that are considered ‘jpop’ if you’re interested (all female singers since that seems to be what you’re talking about):
