PROFILE Image
If one were to ask D4NGER, about his name he would decline to answer, but if one were to ask about his childhood he'd tell you that it was boring. He never found much joy in schoolwork and he was painfully inadequate with sports which meant that his free time consisted of either music class or video games. Where his sister was a blooming sunflower, he was an amaryllis, shy and waiting.

The Internet was his only escape, mainly because nobody had to know who he truly was. He could talk about anything from music to fashion to, in some cases, his home life. He started as a lurker on some forums (mainly dedicated to Nico Nico Douga), but as he became more comfortable, he began reaching out, posting threads, and even participating in voice calls. Around the age of sixteen he posted a clip of him singing as part of a tagging challenge and his friends went nuts. They encouraged him to upload a full song and after a lot of pressure he finally did so under the name D4NGER. Though the views came gradually, those that found the video praised his technical ability and personality. Singing online felt...good and the fact that people were recognizing him outside of NND was even better. Still, he kept his identity a secret from his family and the few real life friends he had. He didn't want those two parts of his life to cross.

Eventually, he took his college exams and was accepted into Tokyo University where he continued uploading videos and even dances. He felt more confident entering college and no longer shirked away from his peers. Friends came more easily as did the sense of fulfillment that was missing in his childhood. As his channel became bigger, he decided to expand onto YouTube and per viewer requests, masked streams.

It went as well as one would expect. Technical issues, stuttering, and awkwardness turned off new viewers and bred harsh criticism both on and off stream. After weeks of mocking he tweeted simply "D4NGER 終わった" before logging off. He confided in his sister (who responded with a loud "I KNEW IT!") before wincing with well, some regret. Rather than out him however, she simply smiled and gave him a pat on the back. In her words "you're never going to stand with giants if you don't get up." He took those words to heart and announced to the world (or at Utaite Twitter) that his next stream would be his big comeback. Fans welcomed him back with open arms and he broke into the international market. After an invitation and some encouragement from his online friends, he's decided to attend the Madness Music Festival and perform on stage for the first time.

Few have seen him without his mask on, and those who have, have been sworn to secrecy; however, there are a few pictures of him circulating the Internet and many say that he looks a lot like Kudo Kosei.

Charisma and confidence were a perfect duo for D4NGER, but Yusuke Kujikawa, the man behind the mask...not so much. Nerves and nausea suited him far more due to the simple fact that he couldn't currently stomach anything more flavorful than a bowl of porridge. Renewing his passport had been arduous process requiring him to take the metro, interact with the woman at the kiosk, and force a smile for the camera. It took far more social energy than he was ready for, but he knew that it would be the least amount of social activity he'd have for the next week. Cheers were already pouring in from all over Japan (and Utaite twitter) due to being one of the first acts to come from YouTube. There were a few Twitch streamers here and there, but most were one city acts or openers rather than headline acts. He felt like a minnow swimming with sharks...

...And that was enough to make him puke all over again.

D4NGER's last tweet had been a picture of the sun barely rising as they ascended into the sky, his stomach rumbling all the while. He made sure to pack a month's worth of clothes, his equipment, and extra cash; however, he neglected to bring any type of sedative or anti-nausea medication so the twelve hour flight consisted mostly of the flight attendant reassuring him that was in fact, fine that he needed another paper bag. Granted, that was after the person next to him complained about the odor wafting from his first bag. When asked why he didn't simply go to the restroom however the answer was simple: he was stuck in the middle. He didn't want to be that guy who constantly went back and forth from his seat to the aisle.

So he waited, always a minute or two after the person in the aisle seat left before he went to the bathroom and eventually settled on falling asleep to a movie and listening to old mp3s on his Zune, a gag gift from his sister on his tenth birthday. Despite being seemingly obsolete, it held power far longer than his cellphone and had a variety of animal stickers to remind him of their pet-filled childhood. Even without his family attending, he could pretend that they would be there.

When they finally landed, Yusuke stumbled out of the plane and towards the shuttle area, his mind still piecing together his itinerary. The fresh air blew away his nausea, the song birds swept his grogginess and the waft of fried food stirred his appetite.


"Mag ik een bestelling met vis?"

The words came out just shy of a whisper.

"Oh! Don't worry, I can speak English too. What would you like?"


"F-fi"

"I'm sorry. My ears are not very good anymore. Can you repeat?"

"F-fish..."

"Oh! You want an order of fish!" The vendor grabbed a small, paper tray before placing four pieces of fried cod and handing it over to him. "That will be three euros."

"T-thanks you very much."

He forced a smile as he walked away from the vendor and sat on one of the benches, nibbling one of the fried cod pieces. He supposed that the vendor wanted to give him points for trying, even if his accent was painfully thick and his volume was well...low to say the least. Despite going to school, listening to guides, and interacting with his English-speaking fans, it was no match for conversing with real, actual foreigners in person.

Why couldn't this be online?

He would have time to use a translator. He could type instead of speak. He turn off his camera if need be and he didn't have to worry about all the unknown factors ahead of him.

"Miauw."

Yusuke raised his head to meet an orange tabby staring at his lunch. Though it made no move to pounce its eyes were clearly fixated on one of the pieces he was holding. He dangled the fish forward, beckoning for the cat to come closer, a smile beginning to tug on his face.

It was comforting to know that at least the animals spoke the same language.
