As a fan of Japanese Music Entertainment or Jpop for short, I always craves for the latest info, for example the latest release singles, news and even reviews, and useful jpop knowledge. By this, I can stay up to date and can know more about them. Here I posted up 6 Jpop sites (blog oriented) that I think you and any Jpop lovers out there that should subscribe and stay at the front line!
Tokyograph was founded in June 2006 as a news and information website dedicated to Japanese pop culture. This site is informative and fast in terms of news delivery, and it covers a lot of fields like music, film, dramas, animes, artists etc. You can find all sorts of Japanese Entertainment here. A premium source of Jpop in English. Suteki.
Ikimasshoi is another great site that provides latest Jpop news, as well as album reviews and much more. Frequently updated site.
*update: ikimasshoi is currently unaccessible
Channel Ai Community Blog
Started by the webmaster of Channel Ai forum, she used the blog platform to spread the love of Japanese pop music with in depth reviews as well as some knowledge of Jpop, for example Ayumi Hamasaki’s biography. I found it quite informative and useful. Lack of update recently, demo matte masu.
Beyond the Sea
Beyond the Sea is a J-pop music review and download blog. Webmaster named this blog after K’s debut Japanese album “Beyond the Sea”. Very up to date and some reviews are pretty elaborative too, nice reading.

As title suggest, this site is dedicated to Jpop CD cover art. Established quite some time already and you can find many popular CD cover arts at high quality, good for collection. Frequently updated site too.
Jpop Express Blog
Jpop Express Blog is pack with not just Jpop news but many (yes, a lot) other coverage like Japanese popular trends and culture. Many things to read on. Osusume!
