What is the Kagerou Project?
The Kagerou Project started out as a
series of songs
that collectively
tell a story
, created using the Japanese voice synthesizer program, Vocaloid. It debuted on 2/17/11 with the song "Artificial Enemy." The songs were created by
Shizen no Teki-P (also known as Jin.)
He is the composer, producer and even guitarist. Although it is originally a list of songs, the Kagerou Project is steadily
being converted into a manga and novel, as well as an anime.

The Project follows many characters, most of which are part of a group called the
Mekakushi Dan
. All of the Mekakushi Dan have special "
Eye Abilities
." Those with abilities are marked by
red irises
. All the characters live in a city that is being
experimented on
, though there is not yet an exact idea on what the experiment actually is. Based on information in the songs, manga, and novels, it may be
targeting people with eye abilities
. It may also be causing the date
August 15
to repeat.

The second album is titled "
