A little about myself:

Hello! My name is Jason, and I am an audio editor at Japan’s Top 10. Japanese culture has always been an integral part of my life ever since I have watched anime. The first anime series I watched was Naruto and the opening ブルーバード (Blue Bird) by Ikimonogakari had me hooked on J-pop music.

I am a big fan of vocaloid music and utaite, some of my favorite composers/musicians are Eve, Yoasobi, Mafumafu, Ado, Dazbee, Yorushika and Deco*27.

If you know any good J-pop music, feel free to send an email to my jtop10 account and I will definitely give it a listen!
