Do you have a favorite ritual you like to do before a live performance?
PinocchioP: I shake and swing my arms while shouting “YOSSHAA!”.
Have you heard any “Utaite” versions of your songs? If so, do you have a favorite?
PinocchioP: Recently, I think that Haida Mio-san’s “I’m glad you’re evil too” has a great expressiveness. I want everyone to watch this more.
Who are your favorite fellow VOCALOID producers and “Utattemitas“?
PinocchioP: Dennoko P-san is awesome. He always combines broadness of music and imaginations. In regards to Utaite, when Fukuwa-san sang “It’s Matsuri, Hey Come On”, I thought that I am fond of his stance.
How did the cafe collaboration with Shuminova happen? Was this an idea you came up with or did Shuminova approach you with this idea?
PinocchioP: It was Shuminova’s proposal. I had never done such a thing before, and it seemed to be really interesting, so I decided to collaborate without thought of profit. I was glad that they made menu items based upon my songs.
What do you think about the Japanese music scene today and what do you wish for it, personally.
PinocchioP: Distorted, awkward and twisted expressions, and perfect expressions exciting for everyone. I wish that both of them impress many people together in a more interesting form.
Why do you think VOCALOID has gained such a strong fanbase overseas?
PinocchioP: I can speak only Japanese and can’t speak English at all. (When I use English on Twitter, I have asked for translation.) I think that the Internet is wonderful. I’m very glad that recently there are many voices from foreign countries to me. Thank you very much.
Do you have a message for your international fans?
PinocchioP: Thank you for listening to my songs always. I wish that people who have never listened to my songs would try once. From now on, I want to do a concert overseas and make much more interesting music!
