    perfume is arguably the easiest jpop group to get into imo because their company is actually interested in getting attention outside of japan lol

    Any of the 48 groups. All you need is to read their wiki page and you'll dive into the 48hole

    Baby Metal if you like cute rock groups lol


    As far as "idol-like" groups; I listen to a lot of Exile, which is 1 LARGE group or tribe, separated into smaller units (similar to NCT but bigger). My fave units are Exile the Second and J Soul Brothers because they're like KPOP with GROWN MEN lol I also recently discovered another unit called The Rampage!!




    BTW when it comes to fansites and such I use a lot of Google Translate:p:p Hope this helps you a bit!!

    i will suggest Bish English stuff can be difficult to find, but some s out. More live footage than you will be able to keep up with.



    and keyakizaka 46 Some official stuff is blocked, but there is endless subbed content




    these are the general places i find info on jpop\rock groups

    Idol Renaissance and Hey!Say!Jump!
    Maji Sunshine



    If you like Faky though, Avex debuted a similar E-girl sub unit group later on



    Morning Musume, of course, is an OG group. A lot of AKB's first gen were rejected from MM auditions


    You have nations bg Arashi


    Johnny's Ent. is actually the best in serving bgs
    Sexy Zone, Kanjani 8, NEWS, Johnny's West , Kis-my-ft-2

    Girl crush Predia to the right


    Break out revival group Angerme


    Berryz used to be a popular J-pop group, but disbanded a few years back. Miyabi is the center of her new group Pink Cres.


    Hello!Online is the most popular J-pop forum.

    K-pop fans tend to like Faky, AAA, and the LDH groups like E-girls, Flower, Happiness, etc. I'd also suggest Babymetal and FEMM, though, just for the hell of it.

    EDIT: Oh, K-pop fans also tend to like Cherrsee, too...not surprising when they're created by a K-pop company, IIRC.

    Listen to Perfume! They are in my opinion the best that Jpop has to offer. My favorite jpop artist by far.

    Capsule is my second favorite and Utada Hikaru is third.
