Hiroshi Watanabe was one of the first commission artists in BEMANI, if not the first. From 1998 to 2000, he provided beatmania and its spiritual sequel beatmania IIDX with quite a few songs, making his first BEMANI appearance in beatmania 2ndMIX. Despite his short time period composing beatmania songs, he has quite a few fans. He specializes in techno, minimal, and ambient.
In the earlier years of his career, he was known to compose under a variety of aliases, both in and out of BEMANI. As time passed, he gravitated primarily towards the Kaito alias, occasionally writing works under his own name as well.
Hiroshi appeared with a new song in beatmania IIDX 18 Resort Anthem, his first new song for any BEMANI game in 10 years.
- None of Hiroshi Watanabe's beatmania IIDX songs have yet to appear in beatmania IIDX INFINITAS, due to copyright with JASRAC.
- None of his songs appear on beatmania IIDX ULTIMATE MOBILE, or can be listened on the MUSIC PLAYER on the game either.
- Hiroshi's father is Takayoshi Watanabe.
