Behind the Drums: Kubo Kenichiro

Kubo Kenichiro (久保賢一朗) joined Bandai Namco as a Taiko Team member in 2006, between the creation of Taiko 8 and PSP's Portable 2. Aside from his glasses and peculiar hairstyle, he's renowned in the Taiko Team for being a fan of idol producing and board games, two traits that earned him some roles in the iDOLM@STER series' development in the following years. One of the more-flexible Taiko Team supervisors, Kubo has taken a wide number of roles since his hiring, both in-series and in general music series talk, with him being credited as the co-composer of several arrangements in Donkey Konga 2, together with the nick-named Jesahm (自営山).

Aside from his plan to make as many surprise cameos as possible during the Taiko Team's livestream sessions, he's a long-time charter that signs his creations under the pen name of Kuboken (くぼけん). While mostly handling songs in the 6-to-8 Oni ballpark, he loves all difficulty ranges in the series without discrimination while weighting the most suitable notechart perks to assign to each, from special combo counters to repeating patterns in different permutations and difficulty spikes in otherwise Full Combo-manageable songs (his favorite quirk!). With the transition to Nicovideo livestreams for the Taiko Team, Kuboken's nickname for his subsequent cameos has been replaced with a more generic Don-Chan (どんちゃん) label, as it turned out that the Japanese video-hosting service treats くぼけん as an NG word for user comment means!
