Song Writers (Lyricists)



All Lyricists
The following people wrote lyrics for Missile Innovation (note: this section will ONLY focus on songs where Missile Innovation is the original artist).

...There's also a similar page for pee-ka-boo, the "old version" of Missile Innovation.


  1. Ryo Owatari (大 渡亮) - he writes most of his own lyrics. (^^) He also wrote a lot of Do As Infinity's lyrics, which were known for their abstractness ("nice & easy") as well as their seriousness ("Tooku Made"). He's also written about love ("Suna no Oshiro") and many light-hearted subjects (even humorous ones, like "777"). Plus he plays guitar AND can sing. He's quite a complex man, indeed. ;)
  2. Yoshiyasu Hayashi (林 由恭) - often referred to as "one of the twins" (i.e.: the one that plays the drums), Yoshiyasu also writes lyrics -- which makes him stand out a bit more. (^^) He also has a pretty good singing voice. "Shout!!!" is the first Missile Innovation song he wrote -- and sung.
