H: I was a “wild” child who would always play around and look for adventure outside home.

H: I wanted to jump around and party on stage
S: What do you like the most, drawing or singing?
H: Singing, as it is my main and original passion
S: What do you usually do in your free time?
H: Nothing really. Just resting and reading manga or daydreaming.
S: Which band is your favorite one nowadays?
H: Golden Bomber, they are my “kawaii” younger friends (kohais).
S: Out of all your music projects, which one is your favorite?
H: All of them actually. However, the one that reflects my individual taste the most is Litchi Hikari Club
S: How do you usually find inspiration to write songs?
H: From my personal experiences and favorite movies, novels, or arts.
S: In 2008, the concert of machine in Paris didn’t go very well, and after the concert you promised to come back to Europe to give a better concert. Is that promise still in your mind?
H: We have no specific schedule yet, but yes, we are thinking about it
S: When are we going to see you touring Europe with one of your musical projects?
H: Again, no specific schedule yet, but we want to do a world tour instead, one that includes not only Europe but the US, Mexico and Asia as well.
S: What are your impressions on foreign fans? Which are the differences between performing for Japanese fans and the fans from abroad?
H: They support us with such strong power that they make me actually feel that there is no border in music.
