A little while ago, I happened to stumble across this lovely all-girl jazz band  on youtube. Called ‘Tokyo Brass Style’, their soft jazz covers of famous anime songs are delightfully fluffy and fun to listen to! On the other hand, for some songs, I felt that their musical arrangement seemed to slip dangerously close to elevator-quality muzak, but that’s probably because of my unfamiliarity with jazz music in general.

He has drawn official and album cover art for supercell singles, done the original character and setting design and official art for the world of Guilty Crown and designed and drawn for novels and visual novels. His style is eye-catching, vibrant, interesting and distinctive, and he is known as redjuice.
