The current leader of the Taiko Team, Yuhei Etou (江藤裕平) was born on June 29th, 1985 and spent his childhood in the Kanto prefecture, where he grew on appreciating the Taiko no Tatsujin series as an early player during the school years. Hired by former Taiko Team leader Takahashi as a notecharter during Taiko 12 Zoryoban's launch window, he succeeded to his master's role roughly some time after the second Wii game's release.
Among his new roles as the new face of the Taiko Team are the management of the Taiko series' official blog updates, arcade/console games supervision and industry directive-related roles, as well as making charts for new songs from time to time. He's also the most recurrent-appearing member in public events for everything related to the gaming series (livestream/tournaments/arcade launches/variety TV shows), signing himself under an alternative way to spell Etou in Japanese (エトウ). He also happens to be in good acquaintance with some of the series' most recurrent external composers, such as Tatsuya Shimizu. As revealed by Etou himself in one of the Taiko Team livestream sessions, he got married by the end of 2014.
As a notecharter, Etou's approach is inspired by the concept of "challenge songs that feel like fit for hard difficulties", putting his efforts on creating charts that while elegible to be cleared in many degrees, they stimulate players to aim for a Full Combo on any difficulty. This philosophy often leads him adding visually-striking features to his notecharts like large notes and multiple BPM/scrolling changes, although he has made a name of himself as a flexible notecharter for both easy and hard Oni modes. Much like Kuboken (くぼけん), his Oni notecharts usually tend to have special-numbered Max Combo values, such as same-digit totals and Namco/Bandai goroawase shenanigans (765/876). While he usually takes less than 1 month to fully chart a song, he may require more than a month for selected songs like Joubutsu 2000. Due to his high position in the Taiko games franchise, Etou isn't used to chart songs with the same frequency anymore.
His profile picture above references his "harder notecharting side" with the so-dubbed 'Etou Beam', an infamous note-dense charting portion he made (with Nicovideo spectators) for Hurtling Boys's Oni mode (stanzas 55-56).
