Hey, I know there have been a lot of posts about BoA's career in Japan and those things... but I was wondering if anybody knew why hadn't she done any more Anime songs in the past few years... because I've seen a lot of artists gettin in the top of the charts with anime songs...
I know BoA has her popularity and she doesn't really need something comercial, but I think it wouldn't change her image (or at least not necessarily)... I don't know, I was thinking this today while I drove back home from work and I wanted to hear some opinions about it...
So tell me, why do you think BoA hasn't done any anime songs?
I think it would be nice if she did some song for a Mainstream anime series (not as Monkey typhoon but as InuYasha) XD

And of course there's one of my favourite ballad - Mamoritai~White Wishes~ which is for Tales of Graces ;)

It would be good if BoA's songs are related to Anime , but with that little resources Avex is giving to BoA....I don't know.

I heard that the anime writer would be the one who chose the song or at lease the artist to sing the theme song

It is really good for BoA is she sings for major anime like naruto,one piece and bleach. Since many many people watches it and also when its a anime opening. People will listen to it everytime they watch the anime and will like the song eventually.

Her every heart was in her debut year, that is way to long ago. And do you know how the Xbox is doing in Japan ? That thing isn't populair neither their game's. So that is not really helping with promoting ;)

I think BoA would be more than happy to participate in an anime project..because she has done so in the past..

The reason behind not having any tie-up with major anime might be that Avex is not giving her the chance /recommendation or that she is not having enough exposure for her talent to be recognized by the amine music production team, given she's not as popular in Japan as before..

Nope definitely not. Many anime use songs recorded by not-very-established artistes. That is because they just need the song itself anyone can record a hundred times and send the best recording it doesn't have to be a good or established singer.

I'm thinking probably the reason is that she doesn't have a proper opportunity.

a) Those production studios which doesn't have a high budget probably will not ask her to record the opening or ending as they probably have to pay Avex a certain sum to be able to use the song in the anime.
;) Those which do invite her to record may get turned down because Avex does not see potential in the anime itself.
c) Those which do have the budget and the potential already have someone else in mind to record. The reason they did not ask BoA may be due to the style of her songs. Mostly they will ask either rock bands or maybe singers like Yui to do their opening songs.

It's nothing to do with popularity. E.g. Do you see Ayumi Hamasaki doing anime theme songs?

^actually...yes.
Ayumi sang a number of Anime songs, Inuyasha being one of them. She actually sang two songs for Inuyasha.
Then there is Rozen Maiden.

Also, xbox is VERY popular. My brother and a number of his friends own a xbox. Inuyasha brought a number of fans here, like me. I got into BoA from Inuyasha. So it was great promotion. I actually believe it is STILL great promotion. There are more and more people watching anime and getting into other performers.
Japanese games are also very much like anime. A number of Japanese games are being brought over to America and Europe, its exposing those people to another culture they might not have known about.

XBOX is popular in the U.S., but it isn't in Japan. So for her to sing a song for an XBOX game based in Japan is sorta...well, it doesn't do much, if you're going for making her popular in Japan through that.

BoA's career in Japan is dead/dying. Needs some revival, like a hit single or whathaveyou.

It will be nice to see some anime songs though :3.

I think she's not doing tie-ins like this anymore because she's not as popular as she used to be. I hope that, when her Avex contract expires, a new label will help promote her to greatness again. :thumbsup:

current anime isn't that good to be talk about in the first place.anime production isn't as big as hollywood's studios.budget is the first thing that need to consider.that's why they only look for young and new artist to be featured on their animes.
