    ^ I am not so sure about that since he's an engineer and not a performer/musician. Nobody really cares about his bio.

    ^ He gets credited at every performance and in the "pamphlets", so that's hardly a case of nobody caring.

    ^ but in the bio there wont be anything worthy, like "he manipulated this and that and the other live, but you cant see him in action in any of these, he's just bowing at the end or middle :P"

    I couldn't even find the kanji 大平佳男 on the main site near the romaji form of the name: Yoshio Ohira...

    Why do you have to find it ? He's not in the list of musicians yet, and we dont feature kanjis of the names along with the romanji in credits of discography/lyrics. (because this site is mainly for people who dont know japanese.)

    ^ Part of the problem when following Japanese artists is both knowing how to say and spell their name in English / romaji, and knowing how to find their name in kanji on Japanese sites.

    If one only sees a name like Yoshio Ohira or 大平佳男 on its own, it is difficult to make the association between the two.

    Okay I will think about it, but Ohira Yoshio isnt an artist one can follow :P

    I noticed that Korenaga-san has opened a Soundcloud account using the romanisation "Kouichi Korenaga" - should entries for his name be changed from "Koichi" to "Kouichi"?

    ^in official pamphlets it's usually romanized as Koichi (similar to how we don't spell Tokyo as Toukyou)
