His most famous works are probably the various songs he did for ''VideoGame/MegaMan2'' (6 out of 8 Robot Masters, so far), where each Robot Master sings a song basically professing his love to Mega Man (except for Bubbleman, who's just incredibly lonely, and Heatman...who just seems to be a giant man-slut). He also has a large number of songs that are arrangements of various ''DragonQuest'' songs (and as a bit of trivia, his nickname is derived from the Japanese spell name of "[[AnIcePerson Kacrack]]"). He also sang a good number of covers of old anime songs. He does all the voices himself, using computer editing to make the female voices.

He eventually revealed [[http://ameblo.jp/hyadain/ on his blog]] that [[SecretIdentity he is in fact]] '''Kenichi Maeyamada''', a professional composer in the Japanese music industry, which [[IKnewIt was suspected by a good many of us]] due to the incredible quality of his work. He signed under the management Stardust Promotion, which also the home of Natsuko Aso and Music/MomoiroCloverZ, sources of his main works and his biggest hits. Because of his distinct [[EarWorm happy upbeat musical]] style, his works often involves various IdolSinger, such as the two mentioned above, Music/AKB48, [=YuiKaori=] and Koharu Kusumi of Music/HelloProject, 9nine, Dempagumi Inc. and Shiritsu Ebisu Chugaku. He has worked on a LOT of Japanese anime theme songs, including te 10th opening for Manga/OnePiece, "Share the World", and remarkably [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Xxnp0Q1GYQ Nichijou]]'s theme where he actually made his names among foreign fans. He switches between a good number of styles, though the majority of his songs are intended to be funny or cutesy, with [[HurricaneOfPuns lots of puns everywhere else]]. he can also do heart-wrenching ballads and darker-themed songs.
