よっぺい(yoppei)

So today I’ll be talking about a certain famous artist on Nico Nico Douga, called よっぺい(yoppei). He sings covers of various songs in his own way, which I mainly describe as “musical shouting”. I like to think of yoppei-san as “the guy who screams songs”, and indeed he is one of the most popular singers on Nico Nico Douga. If you’re looking for a serious good song, stay the bloody hell away. If you’re looking for a laugh, like what I sometimes do, listening to a yoppei rendition might be your cup of tea. Tea that’s screaming with a weird Japanese pronunciation.

His most famous song is his cover of 炉心融解(Roshin Yuukai), or Meltdown.

So it’s kind of a love or hate thing. He inserts a bunch of random stuff, so it’s interesting. Unfortunately, if you don’t understand Japanese, you’re missing a lot. He’s a good singer though. You know, when he’s slightly half-serious.

Random Japanese Word of the Day:
セーラー服(seeraa fuku) – Sailor uniform, the Japanese school uniform for girls. The cause of weird fetishes and stuff.
