The_Little_Buster;251877 said:Really? I'd consider her to be J-Rock to an extent since she has quite a lot of her songs backed by actual Rock music even if they are intended as pop lol. But yeah her music is great, although I actually like her more poppier songs like ano koro, happiness!!!, You, Whatever Are You Looking For?, sola, I♥hug, and Deep Blue Sky.
