Ikimono-gakari is easily in my top 5. Discovered them with Bluebird then followed with other songs; may get one of their albums soon... if only their singles weren't as expensive Q_Q. I love Kiyoe's voice a lot, one of my favorites in all j-pop/k-pop (can't judge with c-pop yet).

I love this band! Although, most of their songs are mellow and might put you to sleep,
I still think their songs are awesome.
The vocalist's voice is nice, as well. Love the band very much!

Personally I think Blue bird is their best song. And best Naruto opening as well. XD
