ROOT FIVE is a five-piece singing unit, established in 2011, which consists of Dasoku, Koman, Pokota, Mi-chan and Kettaro. They were originally renowned singers who mainly cover songs and upload their singing videos to the popular Japanese video-sharing site Nico Nico Douga. Their debut single, titled “Merry Go Round” was released on December 4, 2011. Most if not all of their songs were written by fellow Nico Nico Douga users and songwriters. ROOT FIVE’s songs mostly include pop and pop-rock, whilst also employing some electronic and digital music features. ROOT FIVE is currently under Avex, and has released 5 singles and 1 album to date.
