It's fitting to write about maro. since he'll be celebrating his second year on February 15. He is one of those types that have that ikemen voice perfect for sexy covers like in Ee A Sou and SPICE. He doesn't have a wide range but his voice is very soothing that it fits gentle voices like Ryo-kun and Inakamono.
The good thing about maro. is that as time goes by, his uploads have improved. The mixing probably helped but his voice quality has become better as well. There were instances that his voice was pitchy, this is because he chooses songs that requires him to hit high notes. As long as he chooses songs within his range, it'll turn out great. Ballads and acoustic arranged songs fit him a lot. He's not bad with rock songs but it should be those low range ones so he won't sound strained.
maro. released an album with Ryo-kun called a.c.t. You can listen to the crossfade demo here.
He's said to live in the Kansai area. He likes curry rice and he dislikes tomatoes.

I first found out of maro. because of his collab with Ryo-kun. I started following his uploads too. I like his Doku Ringo to Cinderella a lot. To really appreciate maro., one has to listen from his first upload up to the present because you will really hear the improvement in his voice.
I also like the covers he has collaborated with male utaite. Somehow, I think maro's voice fits more with males than with females. He has done collabs with Mes, Wataame and Kuxia but it didn't impress me as much as his collabs with the males.
