Hehe, I'm glad I found this thread! Lately I've developed an unhealthy obsession with Japanese music - most genres, really. Some of my favourite artist/composers include: Laruku (esp. Hyde and Tetsu!), Gackt, Dir en Grey, Maaya Sakamoto, Yoko Kanno, Nobuo Uematsu, Orange Range, X Japan, Beat Crusaders, and some Fukuyama Masaharu songs (Niji, mostly).
Favourite albums include Tierra (Laruku), 666 (Hyde), Blue Blood (X Japan), etc.
