They've never really achieved mainstream success.

B'z is no. 1. That fucking band from Gintama.
I thought The Pillows is the great band from Japan, because there are so many references on animes and mangas.

Pillows are like the Japanese Pixies, so you could say that they are Pixies for weebs, except that they have a britpop tinge to their music

Anison hasn't really achieved much mainstream success, especially in recent years. Nana is arguably the only anison artist who has become mainstream and is recognized even by people who know little about anime.

>AKB48 being the most popular

Does that even mean anything at this point. If you want good music you don't go looking at the charts

>>154852136
Ikr. I listen to good music, that's why I watch animes.
>>
>>154851861
They're just not mainstream. It's not unusual for people to like bands or artists that aren't mainstream.
>>
>>154854095
OP here, it's just, considering the amount of references to this band in animes and mangas, I thought it was pretty mainstream.

No this band is.

Just because they're pretty well known in the otaku community it doesn't mean that they're popular in mainstream Japanese culture. I made a new Japanese friend recently who had never heard of the Pillows, but when I showed him a couple of songs he liked them.

I just wanna see them live once before that happens.

Animes' songs are not that special. Sound like any other J-pop music. Just listen to any songs by mainstream bands like B'z, Mr. Children, X-Japan, Babymetal, etc. Sound like usual animes' OST.
