    For those who never got the news; VOCALOID artist WOWAKA, the WOWAKA that brought us classics like “World's End Dancehall”, “Two-Sided Lovers”, “Unhappy Refrain” and “Rolling Girl”, to the underlooked “Unknown Mother Goose”, etc. Yes; that WOWAKA; on the date of April 5th, 2019; has died of Acute Heart Failure. While I had only known of this artist for over 3 years (like all things Miku and such) I can feel the impact the HITRIE vocal guitarist's impact through video form alone, just like those who felt the impact of his music in both Project DIVA and the live concerts associated with it. This is the 3rd death of a producer I've had actually been aware of alongside those of Samfree and CON; that is unfortunately only 1/3 of actual producer deaths; https://vocadb.net/T/3337/deceased.

    Like all those touched by his work in some from or another; I send my condolences from across the Pacific Ocean to the other members of HITRIE, and his [WOWAKA's] personal family and friends.

    Press Release from SONY MUSIC JAPAN:

    In terms of his cause of death; I think giving some awareness to Acute Heart Failure is just as important as remembering his memory, let alone donating to reputable organizations to help bring an end to this disease and others like it:

    His death was so sudden. I'm still in shock. I found out about his band because of his death, which makes me pretty sad. But still I'm glad, he put so much love in his music and I like this kind of music even more than his Vocaloid songs. But currently, I can't listen to it without crying.
    Wowaka, you are missed and you will be unforgotten.

    0bb.jpg View attachment 744 View attachment 743 the death of WOWAKA devastated many and including me. I was thinking of making a song to honor his spirit. His song rolling girl was a song i could relate to it. so i was thinking of making a song talking about depression and suicide and the people who suffer from it. he will be in my heart for ever
    thank you WOWAKA your footprint you left will always be remembered
