You might try Chacon.
Full-quoting makes you scroll past the same junk over and over.

I can confirm that Chacon works on everything I've tried it on (Japanese in various formats and Korean). An alternative is also to get the freedb tagger.

For freedb, you can use freedbtest.dyndns.org

I'm not sure if there are other options out there but I've been using this for a while and it's good. Post if you know of any other good ones.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but AFAIK foobar started using utf-8 only around version 1.0. If your tags were written with a previous version, you would probably have them as Shift-JIS, so you'd have to convert them to UTF-8 with chacon. No need to change the system locale, though.

You are wrong. fb2k has used UTF-8 for as long as it has tagged id3v2.

For other tagging formats it has always used the format's specified character encoding (e.g. vorbis comments are UTF-8)
