Yabuki Toshiro and Mizuki Nana

Yabuki Toshiro began his career in the late 80's as a guitarist for the popular Japanese pop female duo Wink. Then, he became the executive producer and the leading composer & arranger of the J-Pop singer Okui Masami from 1995 to 2001. They are known to be the pioneers in the introduction of dance sound in the anison musics. After a bunch of albums and singles used for many animes and games like Shoujo Kakumei Utena or Soreyuke! Uchuu Senkan Yamamoto Yohko they decided to end up their collaboration after a quarrel between them (they reconciled themselves shortly after).

In parallel of his works with Okui Masami, He began to compose and arrange songs for the J-Pop singer and seiyuu Mizuki Nana which have a very similar style of music to the songs he made ​​for Okui Masami.

"MASSIVE WONDERS" in 2007 is the last single of the singer which the title track is composed by him.

Although his work for Mizuki Nana decreased he became in 2008 her executive producer and also a part time member of the backing band during Mizuki Nana's concerts as a guitarist while working on the production of these.
