one of the most admired bassists in japan, inspired lots of bands like l'arc en ciel, luna sea, buck-tick, janne da arc, and many more
toshiya of dir en grey = false no. 1 bassist in japan. crazy cool joe was with KYO isono hiroshi's solo and also their band that reunite influenced many bands musically and in fashion.
In the beginnings of the band he had to lead the rhythm section for less experienced drummer and also the melody section for less talented guitarist. He was good enough to manage. I like his style of playing: hard and agressive, but also surprisingly soft sometimes. I wish he could get more recognition, as in my opinion he's truly one of the best bassists in his generation.
He's a magnificent bassist with an amazing talent. His basslines are just beyond anything else. He is one of the most funkiest bassists in the all of the Jrock section.
He will practice hard for anything, only to keep himself and his band ONE OK ROCK to reach the best spot.
Watching him playing live is just one of the most things to watch.
I've started to be in love with bass solos because of Janne Da Arc, in special Ka-yu! He is the best for me!
Yeah.. like I said.. he's the greatest bassist in Japan. not satisfied? see Janne Da Arc to know this.
He is a great singer & composer too!

put all older legendary bassists above toshiya like crazy cool joe, seela, bassists of x-japan, loudness, etc. you will see how they actually influenced him
dir en grey -more popular
seela is toshiya's idol
la vie en rose, dear secret lover, an aphrosidiac
they are one of the pioneers of visual kei and they receive less credit?
Toshiya have a debt in d'erlanger being their idol

Not only does he play well, but he always looks like he is enjoying himself.
His! His the best bass of the word
his the best bass of the world, don't forget voted for Heath We are X, the Kings forever
Poor Hiroshi(Heath)... He should be around number 8 or something I'm sure he'd really like it if he was top 10.. Sorry Heath... I'll vote 4 you... ^. ^

Yhura's solos are the best, he is so skilled and he plays the bass in a way that really gets you in, I really, really love him and I'd think he should be in the top 10 bassist. Let's go Yhura! You are my number 1 bassist in all times!
Yuura has an amazing thumb! And he is a few of the bassist who play it with finger but not pick~His bass solo always make me drunk in Kra's music~REALLY like yuura's bass~
The su~per energetic bassist that DOESN'T use a pick? Never misses a beat, and does those amazingly complicated bass lines...? Obviously one of the best bassists in Japan.More comments about Yuura - Kra
Naoki is the funniest and most talented bassist that I know.
He is very kind, but can be serious sometimes.
His Solo's, for example in Himitsu, are beautiful.
If you hear Kagrra, 's Songs, his Solos will be in your ear, believe me. ;)
He is a great bassist,
its sound is beautiful, far one of the best bassist in the world!
after all, is in a great band, "D"
one of the few bands that musically, it is excellent.
Tsunehito is a not only a versatile bassist but he's also a wonderful jewelry designer and human being. He's as talented as he is sweet and you can tell just by looking that he loves what he does. True facts. Just saying'.
He is truly an amazing bassist! He masters different playing techniques and I really enjoy listening to him playing! I like watching too, then you can see it as well as hear it...More comments about Tsunehito - D
He is a good bassist with amazing skill. He even hurt his finger for the songs but he still practise hard even there is wound on his hand, which not much people are willing to do that. He is sure one of the best Japanese bassist.
Chiyu. He is the most extreme bassist that I ever see.. I like the way he play it.. In all of their song.. He can also sing in Fukanzen Beaty Fool Days and he looks cute in Five Starz pv! I hope that someday whoever become my bassist in my own band can play just like him.. And laugh out loud too..
Chiyu is AMAZING! The way he strums his bass guitar. His voice so perfect during the songs fukanzen beautyfool days and little lover boy. They way he plays and sings is just amazing.
