I just pick a random song and listen to it...It cuts down the boredom of having to work on manga...

First of, great pic solaris!!!!

Hmmmm, it depends a bit. I only know one japanese band i like, and i haven't listend to them much. ( the pillows, FLCL soundtrack )

I usually just pick stuff as i normally would.
I never have a problem reading. I usually need like 5 minutes to realize the music already finished.

Bah. I've never liked Japanese music, of course, with a few exceptions.

I usually don't like to listen when I'm reading, but if I am, I'll have a video game podcast going.

I love listening to music when i read. I even listen to j-pop when i read normal novels. Kinda provides you with your own theme songs to each scene, just gotta figure out how to fit it in.

I love listening to music while i do everything, so manga isnt an exception. I listen to whatever comes up on my playlist (that one being my top rated songs on itunes) whether it is a tribe called quest, queen, some Anime themes, sentai themes, or george michael (no one dare say anything about a man who can sing like he can). Music and Manga is like peanut butter and jelly, especially when I get in a zone where i am more focused on the manga as a result of my music and i cant hear the music anymore. (wierd to explain, but it happens when i get into a superfocused state)

Also, to the topic creator, The Professional rocks on so many levels

I sometimes wonder if their is a single european or american ( north and south, both continents ) who listens to J pop who isn't a manga or anime fan.

I kinda recently came to realise that the best music to go with manga is any kind of ambient or chill-out, since it doesn't distract you at all.

That hardcore/sad manga combo works pretty well sometimes
