Oricon Charts, Momusu & AAA

Hi everyone! Today I bring to you my contribution in the J-Pop section.

はじめましょう! ^^

First off is the Oricon Charts. The Oricon Charts give to you the top ranking music videos for Japanese Pop (J-Pop) and Korean Pop (K-Pop). Here you'll find the top 30 J-Pop videos as well as the best of J-Pop, J-Rap, J-Rock, and even Anime songs!

A really cool thing about the site is that most of the videos if not all of them have subtitles right next to the videos with scrolling options so you can sing along or figure out what they're saying!

They update it by the week so you can stay up-to-date and check out what's hot in Japan.

On this website is where I learned of the most famous all-girls music group in Japan! Morning Musume! What's cool about this group is that most of them are runners up of famous Japanese version of American-Idol called Asayan. They have many videos that can appeal to different people ranging from sweet melodic and calming videos:

to dark dancing videos!

So that's Morning Musume, or "Momusu" for short.

Another artist I found interesting on the Oricon Charts is a group called AAA. I found them interesting because they use a lot of cool visual effects and it's very entertaining to watch. Coming up high in the Oricon Charts for both of these videos:

Dream After Dream - AAA
Visit here for the video on the Oricon charts for subtitles on the side!

Makenai Kokoro (Current Number 23 on Oricon Charts) - AAA
Visit here for the video on the Oricon charts for subtitles on the side!

So if you get a chance, check out the Oricon charts and find videos that you might like! Or you can feel free to check out more of Morning Musume and AAA!

That's all for today, thanks for reading! ^^

Welcome to
The Otaku Reviewers

This blog, "The Otaku Reviewers", was started in February of 2010 on this very same platform, Blogger. At first, it was a venture into the informational and informal world of comics, anime, video games, and Japanese culture. In other words, just a random blog.

Over time, the founder of the blog credited with the pseudonym "RPGhero" was joined by two fellow bloggers and friends with the names "Chansu" and "Deretsun". Together the three bloggers looked up interesting Japanese culture facts, recommended new anime, talked about their own "otaku" interests, and traveled across the United States to various anime conventions.

There have been off periods when the blog ceased production of content and there have been times when there would be dozens of blog posts per week. The schedule varies depending on the lives of the people behind the alias'. However the pattern is that we always get back into the game with even newer information about Japanese culture, anime, video games, and other nerdy hobbies.

The motto of our blog is:
"A cure for your apathy and an inspiration for your dreams. ...Applies to Otaku, anime fans, J-pop junkies, and the like"

The purpose is to blog about cool stuff related solely to anime and otaku stuff. There's no other reason we're doing this.

If you like our blog, please support us in however small a way that you would like. We appreciate our readers!
