Kenshi Yonezu is my favorite! I've been following his music since around 2009 I think. He started out popular, but appealing to a very niche audience, so I'm super happy to see all the work he's been getting lately on anime. Since all my information is second hand, I have no idea how famous he is in japan. The last evidence I had of how popular he was were all the Matryoshka covers, but I feel like that was more an obsession with bizarre vocaloid than with Kenshi himself.

I love his waveringly, fairy tale like music. But I also really love the different aspects of his personality that come through in his work. It's really rare for an big artist to be so singly involved in every aspect of his work, from composing, to production, to singing, to the video. I love hearing his struggles with confidence and meaning. I love his happy songs, which are dyed in an almost fantasy. I love the weird songs he wrote. I love the sad songs, full of yearning and heartbreak.

I've loved all of his songs at one point or another. Right now I've been listening to Loser a lot. It's something to contemplate. It's about his career, and his success, and how he isn't even sure if what he has was what he wanted. Is this paradise? Is this hell? Who knows. But knowing even someone like him, who I consider a prodigy, struggles with finding meaning and satisfaction is somehow reassuring. Not even Kenshi knows what he's doing.
