1 Hideto Takarai - L'Arc~en~Ciel

The sexiest voice in the world

Can't you forgot the frontman of one of Japans best and visual kei pionneers. He interacts with the audience more than most bands such as dir en grey and luna sea. There great frontmen and bands but he's in a different league! - TD17

3 Sakurai Atsushi - Buck-Tick
4 Koshi Inaba - B'z

Koshi is an amazing, stunning performer, he has a wonderful voice with a mood range from hissing wind, to storm, to deep velvet, his soul shines in all the colours of the rainbow, from the brightest white to the darkest purple, and he drags you along in his own journey like no other.
With plus the body of a panther, and boiling sexy moves on stage, no wonder he has sold more than 80 million records with B'z and solo works! Inaba #1 ever on the planet! No Axl Rose can compete, sorry, love you too bro, but Inaba is the greatest in History!

I think that his voice is amazing, versatile and also he's so sexy. I really B'z & Koshi.

Koshi is the best! He has a voice that reaches the heart. Plus he's so damn adorable and sexy!

Inaba shall be at number 1

5 Itaya Tasuku - Zi:Kill, The Slut Banks, Craze

Tusk is the sexiest guy on earth! His crooked teeth make the acoustic sound in his sexy mouth! XD He has been so talented at singing since he was so young! sw cannot stop listen to Zi:Kill; also the best band in the universe, too!

Tusk(Zi:Kill) is crazy handsome and smart! His voice is much much much more handsome than he was, and also super sexy guy in the world.
