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 I think lots of people knew BoA throughout that anime because I know I did

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.

BoA has done theme songs for Game and Anime like Your Color for some Xbox game and Every Heart for InuYasha
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

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?

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.
