Meet Hyadain Part 3: Western Show on Super Mario World

Well, it was 6 months between part 1 and part 2 of our “Meet Hyadain” series, but there’s been some big news recently, so we thought we’d get this next installment out to you rather fast-like. While Hyadain’s identity was always kept a secret, he recently revealed himself to be composer Kenichi Maeyamada (personal website here), a well-established composer of anime, videogames, and J-pop. He’s been at this for awhile (which makes sense given how amazing his arrangements are), but I found it interesting that he worked on One Piece as well as the arrangement of “525600min ~ Seasons of Love” from K’s Traveling Song album that we reviewed some time ago.

Although we now know his true identity, that shouldn’t stop us from highlighting his awesome YouTube arrangements of classic videogame music. This time we’re taking a look at the first Hyadain video I ever saw, which I was first shown at Dale North’s house a few years back, as is apparently his favorite Hyadain arrangement. I can’t say it’s my personal favorite, but the arrangement are lyrics are great as usual.  Watch for more updates in the near future!

Are you surprised by Hyadain’s true identity? What do you think of the “Western Show” arrangement above?
