#2 A fateful encounter with a boy
The world-renowned artist YOSHIKI is producing a group that breaks the mold with "going global" in mind. The audition process is now face-to-face screening.
The first successful candidate was Hayato Maruo. His profile was confident. YOSHIKI was impressed with his performance and asked his friend to see what he thought. That good friend is HYDE of L'Arc~en~Ciel, and he chuckled, "How can I refuse YOSHIKI's favor?"
There was also a scene of world-famous soprano singer Sarah Brightman advising Rio Oshima about his singing performance.
And what surprised YOSHIKI was 9 years old Ototaro, who applied as a guitarist.
