Have you heard of the “Kagerou Project?”


A Massive Hit among Teenagers

Many have undoubtedly heard about the young artist that has recently released a streak of hit songs on Niko-niko Doga and has come into view of the public eye under the name “Jin: Natural Enemy P.” Through use of VOCALOID's Hatsune Miku or IA, he creates original songs one after another that are highly addictive, should you listen even once.

Since 2011, he has been uploading videos onto the video channel “Niko Niko Doga,” with his third and arguably most important work “Kagerou Days” having reached a viewing of 2,500,000. In rapid-fire succession, he has released several songs that have also surpassed the 1,000,000 mark. Currently out of his 16 songs, 9 of them have broken the one million mark, with the newer releases continuing to reach records of their own.

("Kagerou" means "mayfly")

Why is it that every time this artist releases a song it is always such a big hit? With themes related to the human eye, the songs are as addictive as they are because of their novel-like quality of pulling the audience into another world set to a backdrop of rhythmic beats.

"Jin: Natural Enemy P’s” multimedia production under the name of “Kagerou Project” is a magnificent creation in which this artist tells a story not only through his musical composition but also with its complementary components such as anime, manga, and novels all released and written by Jin himself. With over 700,000 copies and counting, his two novels: “Kagerou Days – in a daze” and “Kagerou Days II – a headphone actor” are what you could call relative successes.

The popularity of “Kakerou Project” doesn’t stop just with the internet. Having even been invited onboard with an anime project last year, there is no stopping it! Before the anime comes out why not prepare yourself for what is to come and take a look at “Niko Niko Doga” listen to the songs and read the novels and manga.
