Do anime characters listen to American music?
« on: April 07, 2013, 04:54:18 AM »

I was wondering about this because when I browse through American music videos on Youtube, sometimes I see a top comment where the username is the name of an anime character.

T.K. from Angel Beats definitely does...

You would have to go to Japan or ask the writer/publisher/whatever themselves otherwise... Also, you'll have to be more speciific : P

I guess you never seen the anime Beck: Monglian Chop Squad,  Or the newest one Kids on The Slope.
Then there was the anime Paradise Kiss that had an English ending theme form Franz Ferdinand. That's just off the top of my head but there is a few more animes out there...So to answer your question, yes.

In Uchuu Kyoudai aka Space Brothers, Mutta does a impersonation of Michael Jackson in one episode, so he must be a fan of his music.

Ritsu and Mio from K-On are both familiar with Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Beck.  However, due to copyright issues, it is very difficult to actually hear American contemporary music in anime.

Yosuke Hanamura from Persona 4 has a Nickleback CD in his room.
