The Reasons Why Jpop Isn't Popular in the West

"You can't sense any talent"
"The method of selling idols only based on image only is no good. Because you can't sense their musical talent"
"I don't understand Japanese bands! If you are not familiar with Japanese culture then you won't get it"
"The image of idols in Japan won't be accepted in America"
"Japanese people who don't sing in English as their native tongue will have trouble expressing their songs overseas"
"Because manly men and sexy women are accepted overseas, Japan's bishounen and bishoujo would be poorly accepted"

From the past they have said that Japan is 10 years behind the west

Because they have no singing ability

Do they mean AKB?

*A Sekai no Owari song that became a meme

>If you are not familiar with Japanese culture then you won't get it

There are lots of parts that even if you are familiar with Japan you wouldn't be able to empathize with it

So pretty much Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Perfume who are popular in Japan

Kyary and Baby Metal seem to be popular but
That's only one section

Compared to western music the era is behind

10. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 19:58:02 [通報+749
Because the singing is bad then.

Hmm it seems that AKB and like are popular overseas so that is embarrassing in itself

12. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 19:58:12 [通報+700
It's pretty much decided that it's no good since people are getting excited about AKB's election

Unlike Korea no one thinks [Jpop] will be popular in the west in the first place

I have a feeling that if you do music that is mimicking western music then it won't have any appeal and we can't win.

If there was an increase of bands who played traditional instruments that showed the flavors of Japan, then I think more foreigners would listen to it wouldn't they

Even if the lyrics aren't understood there are bands who have performance abilities who could make it.

Japanese vocals and songs are bad right

17. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 19:58:53 [通報+836
But why?
Isn't if fine if Japan is popular in Japan

19. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 19:59:12 [通報+171
If it's Maximum the Hormone or the like they surprisingly seem like they would be popular
If we're talking about Jpop then I want give it to take the world on in Japanese

20. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 19:59:14 [通報+1052
Even Utada Hikaru failed in advancing overseas so the wall is thick


21. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 19:59:25 [通報+746
Even in Japan aren't the people who listen to Jpop only a few? There are lots of people with joke names like SekaOwa and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, so even Japanese people can't follow Jpop

>Manly men and sexy women are accepted

It's this isn't it

There isn't a person like Simon Cowell in Japan right


25. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 20:00:14 [通報+425
Lately especially
There are certain groups who top the Oricon with fraudulent sales methods

26. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 20:00:16 [通報+890
For example it's the same as why Swedish music isn't popular in Japan, there is no reason for music in a completely different language to be popular in another country

27. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 20:00:28 [通報+497
It's enough to be popular in Japan so there is no need to expressly try to be popular in the west

Golden Bomber would be impossible...

29. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 20:00:54 [通報+327
Even Japanese people think idols are embarrassing...

30. 匿名 2015/06/06(土) 20:00:58 [通報+206
If a foreign artist said this it would be fine but
It's embarrassing for a person with no talent to talk about this.
