Title: I can has musicz?
Post by: Godai on February 09, 2009, 02:11:37 AM
Well I used to not be a big of soundtracks, mostly just downloaded OP and ED songs through Kazzaa back in the day. But now since LimeWire certainly doesn't have anything anymore I've finally submitted to torrents.

Where do you get your JMusic from?

I mean, sometimes I can find what I'm looking for in a torrent, but even on more popular titles lately I'm having trouble, if not with finding it then with the number of seeds. I've been using Nipponsei and isohunt, but...ugh! And sometimes I'm only looking for one song in particular, not the whole 10-disc collection.

I even tried to download JP iTunes, but even from the Japanese site it still downloads the English content program.

Help! Please?

Are we even allowed to talk about torrents and such here?

I'd rather people not talk about specific sites.  One day I'll get around to writing a set of rules...

This isn't shady at all.

I buy my J-Music, thank you very much.

Where? ;_; Like I said, I tried downloading the JP version of iTunes of the Japanese website but it defaults to the English one.

I get my music from these Asian blogs and Asian forums that happen to have what I need.  Although, I usually use torrent sites if they happen to have what I want as well.  There are plenty of Jpop music sharing sites that use torrents as well.  Some of them happen to be forums with their own integrated tracker.  Since it looks like Sorrow won't permit sites to be talked about, I can't really refer you to any sources in respect.  But, there are plenty of sites that you can find via Google without the hassle.

Regarding purchases, I never purchase anything especially when the quality is not even that good.  Especially in this modern era where Jpop is on the downfall for the most part and even fresh talents like Alan can not help liven things up enough since the talent pool (people who can actually sing) is far too in the minority.  Of course, Japanese CDs and albums tend to be a lot more expensive then buying a Korean or Chinese version of a CD.  Even then, I still would not buy them anyways since the price tags are just not worth the trouble.

Anyway, Isohunt is rather piss poor in terms of obtaining Jmusic since you are better off joining Asian forums with torrent trackers and all.

Demonoid.com is where I go for everything now that OiNK is gone. If you need it, I can send an invite code.
