Who is Takanori Nishikawa?

Takanori Nishikawa is a renowned Japanese singer and actor. He performs as T.M.Revolution, which stands for "Takanori Makes Revolution" although the name stems from the famous 80s pop electronic band TM Network.

Nishikawa is also known for contributions of ending and opening themes to many notable anime and game series.

Nishikawa debuted as TMR with the release of his first single "Dokusai" in May 1996. Later that year, his third single "Heart of Sword" was used as the third ending song for the anime series Rurouni Kenshin, further expanding his fan base. He also contributed six songs to the Mobile Suit Gundam SEED franchisethree for Gundam SEED and three for Gundam SEED Destiny. Nishikawa has guest starred as a minor character in each of those anime series that featured his songs. In 2010, his single "Save the One, Save the All" was used as the ending theme song for the movie Bleach: Hell Verse. Nishikawa has also had a long-standing affair with Capcom's Sengoku Basara series of video games and media franchise, with several of his songs being used for it, including Crosswise and Flags.
