- Name: Osamu Migitera (右寺修)
- Birthday: September 6th
A long-time contributor to BEMANI, Osamu Migitera started off as a sound data analyzer in pop'n music and IIDX before he started writing his own music. He is best known for his happy hardcore songs and his rock tracks under his Des-ROW alias, though he's also dabbled in trance, rap, and poppy songs as well.
Osamu's first song for BEMANI was the opening theme of beatmania CORE REMIX. Shortly after he composed INNOVATION for pop'n music 5, though he mostly worked on beatmania as a sound director alongside Takehiko Fujii until its end in 2002. Afterwards Osamu has mainly worked on pop'n music, and has served as the sound director of several pop'n music games, as well for the spin off game ポップンリズミン. Recently Osamu has also branched out into almost every BEMANI franchise out right now, including jubeat and DanceDanceRevolution. He's also appeared in several GuitarFreaks and DrumMania installments.
As of REFLEC BEAT groovin'!! Upper, Osamu Migitera is now one of the sound directors of the REFLEC BEAT series. He's also the current series producer.
- According to the song commentary for World Wide Love, Osamu is not a fan of his own voice. Ironically, he provides the main/back-up vocals of nearly every song of his with vocals in it following his work on World Wide Love.
- Osamu's Des-ROW alias was first named by Takehiko Fujii. After Osamu developed an interest in the death metal genre, he was making jokes about "death pop" and other things with "death" in front of them, along with Akehiro Hidaka and Naoki189, and Takehiko remarked they were like a "death row". Osamu liked the sound of this, and took the Des-ROW alias for his metal song INNOVATION.
- However, Osamu notes on his BEMANI fan site page that his Des-ROW alias is pronounced as "dee srow", not "death row" or "dess row".
