Mahousyoujo Ni Naritai, literally meaning “wanting to be a magical girl,” is a band formed in 2014 by producer/developer, ADULT YUkun, as a five-piece commercial and creative team. Members also regularly collaborate with illustrators, photographers and other young, up-coming creators in both studio recordings and live performances. They have been labeled under SONY MUSIC until 2020.
Mahousyoujo Ni Naritai has done the theme song for the popular japanese anime Pazudora, which was used for 2 years. They have covered a couple of very famous anime songs from Ojamajo Doremi, One Piece, Haruhi and more.
The band sounds part metal, punk and EDM, while infusing elements of role-playing games, not only in their songs and lyrics, but also their videos and live performances, creating an all-new “Japanese alternative” genre. Their unique approach to music and performing has caught the attention of fans and the music industry, having won a prestigious contest for up-and-coming artists hosted by a major rock magazine merely four months since forming the band. This led to them being invited to perform at one of Japan’s leading rock events, ROCK IN JAPAN FESTIVAL 2014, and in 2015 they’ve also been tapped to write a song for Shiritsu Ebisu Chugakou, one of Japan’s most in-demand idol groups. On New Year’s Eve 2019/2020, Mahousyoujo Ni Naritai performed at COUNTDOWN JAPAN 19/20, Japan’s most famous and important new year’s event.
The group also made their USA debut in a much-buzzed about performance at SxSW 2015in Texas, being tapped as an “absolute must-see” by NPR Radio. Their performance is very energetic and absolutely unique in style–a live performance like never been experienced before!
