Music: TM Revolution
Pictured: The greatest case of Older than They Look in recorded history. note 

Takanori Nishikawa, born September 19, 1970 in Hikone, Japan, is a Japanese singer, better known as T.M.Revolution. Despite most of his songs being written by Akio Inoue and composed/arranged by Daisuke Asakura, TMR is considered Nishikawa’s solo project.

Nishikawa got his start in music as the vocalist of the Visual Kei band Luis-Mary from 1990 until they disbanded in 1993, during which time he operated under the Stage Name "Haine". Nishikawa first worked with Daisuke Asakura in 1995, providing the vocals for the A-side of Daisuke's third solo single which was released under the alias of "Daisuke Asakura expd. Takanori Nishikawa" (expd. meaning expanded and designating Takanori as a guest vocalist). Daisuke liked his voice so much that he decided he wanted to continue working with him. T.M.Revolution (Takanori Makes Revolution) debuted the next year with his first official single "dokusai -monopolize-".

In 1999, it was announced that the T.M.Revolution project was over, as Nishikawa and Asakura had agreed it would be upon meeting three specific goals: hold a live at the Tokyo Dome, reach #1 on the Oricon charts and sell a million copies of a single release. Nishikawa and Asakura then created a sequel project to T.M.Revolution called (and hold onto your hats for this one) "the end of genesis T.M.R.evolution Turbo Type D"...or "TMR-e" for short. They released three singles under the name but Nishikawa and Asakura began to grow distant around the turn of the millennium and Nishikawa decided to go back to performing as T.M.Revolution in early 2000.

In 1999, Nishakawa married Yumi Yoshimura of Puffy Ami Yumi fame, though the pair divorced in 2002 after it emerged Yumi was having an affair.

Takanori is also co-founder and vocalist of rock band abingdon boys school. He's also received his own Nendoroid.
