17 June 1980 (age 37)
Kimeru (キメル, born June 17th, 1980 in Kumamoto-ken, Japan). He gained his first spotlight as a singer when he performed the 1st ending theme of the Tennis no Oujisama (Prince of Tennis) anime, 'You Got Game?' on 2001. From 2003, he played the role of the prodigy Fuji Shuusuke in the musical version of the series until his graduation from the musical at the end of 2004. After graduating from high school, he originally became a mailman, but later decided to pursue a career as a singer. He adopted the stage name Kimeru, which means "to decide" in Japanese, before debuting. Kimeru's birth name has never been announced publicly.
Kimeru then was signed with the major label Nippon Crown and released his first full album, 'glorious', under that label.
He also blogs regularly, hosts his own radio show and has a short cooking segment on TV. Kimeru is always surprised by the enthusiasm shown by his non-Japanese fans and he shows his appreciation by greeting them in his diary or live concerts.
