While Kizuna AI has spent these last few weeks working with some genuinely incredible talent, the Virtual YouTuber is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down anytime soon; in fact, she’s only just getting started. Just a few short days ago we saw an Instagram post go live from Yasutaka Nakata, a game-changing electronic musician best known for his work as the producer for both Kyary Pamyu Pamyu and Perfume, that seemingly teased interest in Kizuna AI. This wasn’t too shocking, especially given Kizuna AI’s popularity — but it turns out that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Since that tweet went live, we’ve seen Kizuna AI do a little bit of posting herself, before eventually announcing that she is, in fact, working with Yasutaka Nakata on an all-new release. This was again reiterated from Yasutaka Nakata’s own Twitter account, meaning that we very much have something to look forward to in the coming weeks. Followers of Kizuna AI were quick to share their excitement via Twitter, with an overwhelmingly positive reception towards the collaboration.

These past few months have proven extremely hectic for Yasutaka Nakata, especially following the release of Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s latest album “Japamyu”, Perfume’s latest album “Future Pop”, as well as the release of his collaborative work with DAOKO on “Bokura no Network”. Add to this the release of Yasutaka Nakata’s debut solo album “Digital Native” at the start of the year, and it immediately becomes clear just how busy the man has been.
That hasn’t resulted in him from slowing down though, as we remain excited as ever for his and Kizuna AI’s collaboration. Though details remain light right now, it wouldn’t be too surprising if we saw details dropped in the coming weeks, especially with Kizuna AI’s upcoming concerts in Tokyo and Osaka. Until those details are revealed though, you can find even more information on Kizuna AI via our archives, here.
