Happy Birthday to Ranko no Ane! (2024) – top 5 album cover/designs

Happy birthday to the best pink bunny! This year’s birthday posts won’t have a specific theme that is common to everyone, but they will be still about something that is related to the celebrated member. I think one of the strongest points of BUTAOTOME is how they have their own illustrator. Ane has a recognizable style, but she can be… Read more »

Buon COMPleanno!!!11 to my favorite polar bear and composer!

Happy birthday to our favorite dancing bunny, the artist behind all the cool BUTAOTOME covers and designs! …so. I originally didn’t plan to do anything special for this year’s birthdays, last year’s posts were made to celebrate my 10th anniversary.

Happy birthday to our favorite polar bear! Following the trend of this year’s Ane and Ranko birthday posts, and as part of my “10th anniversary as Piggy” celebration, today we’ll talk about some of our polar bear’s works outside of the BUTAOTOME circle.

Happy birthday to the wonderful voice of BUTAOTOME! It was around this day, 10 years ago, that I became a BUTAOTOME fan. Or rather, I started as a Ranko fan. I think a lot of people got into BUTAOTOME because they heard Ranko’s voice in some other groups like Sally, Diao ye zong or UNDEAD CORPORATION. However, over time I… Read more »
