Artist Profile: ShounenT aka Sako Tomohisa

ShounenT is a singer who debuted as Sako Tomohisa on March 28th, 2012 under Sony Music Entertainment with the single "Ai Kotoba". On June 6th, he released his 2nd single "Zutto" which is the opening song of the anime, Kimi to Boku 2.

However, ShounenT has long been active as far back as 2009 as an utaite. Utaite is a term for people who cover previously released songs and post them on the popular video site Nico Nico Douga; under the utattemita category. Utaite is unique for NND singers, differentiating from the general term of "kashu" (singer). Generally utaite cover J-pop, anime, game and vocaloid original songs. However it is not unusual for them to release original music/drama CDs during events such as Comiket and Vocaloid M@ster.

ShounenT was born on December 26th, 1991 in Hokkaido and is currently a vocational college student. He is known for his acoustic arrangements, which other singers and himself use. He has a soft and light voice that is sometimes accompanied by his own guitar. The "T" in his stage name stands for his real name, Tomohisa. Thus his fans call him T-kun. He also has a younger brother, Malon, who is a odoite (dancer) on NND.

where did you watch th musical? can you share the link (if there is any? ) :D
xelloss_poo 23rd-Jun-2012 10:44 pm (UTC)
When the play was running they had internet viewings that you could pay to watch (1000yen for non-Premium members and 500yen for Premium members). But he was in the one in August 2011. They took those shows in November since they released a DVD of the play.

I saw it both in person, from the streaming shows, and own the DVD, so I can't share any links.

so far i only listened to nino's niji, but i like that his voice gives off this innocent feel to the song. like younger and more high school-ish version.

This makes me kind of sad because I loved tennen oujisama. ;__;

Thanks for this, OP. <3
I love T-kun and finding compilations of his stuff is kind of hard outside of his NND channel. c:

Btw, you might want to consider including that he released an album before debut; "Promise" - under the name Tomohisa.
liime_arix 23rd-Jun-2012 10:10 pm (UTC)
I'll add that in =3
Quite a lot of his stuff are on youtube. The hard ones are the utaite that don't allow Youtube uploads.

You can use nicosound to rip his songs from his nicovideos =3
yume_no_yousei 24th-Jun-2012 01:20 am (UTC)
Yeah, fortunately, he allows them on Youtube and he's popular enough that his videos are spread around. I meant more of his Nico lives and stuff, though.

And yeah, NicoSound is really convenient. I use it all the time. xD;

And I'm just going to leave this here, because I can't believe how much of a fanboy he is for mainstream English male teens. xD;

I hope everything works out awesomely well for him. ^__^
