Based on the previous post here, you should've known that this is the PONPONPON Matsuri Week, which means there are TONS of covers of this super catchy song you'll end up singing it while you sleep! Worry not though since there are actually many arrangements of the song (and many styles in terms of covering it) so you won't be bored. It's a PONPONPON dominated week, but make sure to check out the other covers, too, since they are all equally good.

Shuuta / 秀太

| mylist |

If you regularly watch the the Anime Theme Collaboration in NND, like this one for summer 2011, you sure have met Shuuta, also known as the guy with the weird masks who sings awesomely ;). In the link above, he sang Blood-C's theme around 20:08 and Hyadain no Jojou(ry @ 24:40.

Shuuta is a a prolific NND singer, having uploaded more than ten covers despite being in utattemita category for a little more than a year. He is not that well-known (yet), but people who listen to him wonder why someone who's blessed with an awesome voice like him is not yet popular.

Shuuta is known for his loud, solid and slightly rough voice with a quality similar to UVERWorld's vocalist. Because of his voice, he can sing rock songs well without sounding garbled or slurry. He also has a wide range and he can sing in falsetto for one whole song without showing any bit of difficulty. Aside from that, he can also do screamo and the ever popular death voice. This superb vocal quality is one reason why Shuuta's covers are always entertaining.

One reason why Shuuta's covers aren't that popular is because he caters only to certain people. He has a habit of singing a song loosely. It means he sometimes sings with random changes in pitches (drastic even) and sometimes he creates his own rhythm of the song ^^;. Those, however, are only a part of his "performance" and can be entertaining when used to a certain degree.

Aside from singing in the anime medley, he also does collabs, usually with Kanamu.

I first encountered Shuuta in the anime theme medleys and I really loved his rendition of the songs, especially "Samurai Heart". I couldn't read his name the first time (you notice the names in the videos are really small :( ). I wondered why he isn't that popular compared to some of the other singers in the group like Keisen, non and kalon.. And eventually, I went through his mylist and liked most of what I heard.

We're all new to his songs but right now I think I'm starting to make a favorite out of him :). Almost all of his songs are popular ones which are covered by a lot of wonderfully popular people so I thought it'd be nice if he gets more views!
