Takayuki Kondo and Daisuke Ono team up for new seiyuu unit “TRD”


After almost a decade working as D.A.T and disbanding in 2020, Takayuki Kondo and Daisuke Ono reunite to create a new seiyuu unit, TRD.

The big news in March 2021 comes from Takayuki Kondo and Daisuke Ono, formerly known as members of EDM-Pop seiyuu unit D.A.T.

The unit disbanded in 2020 and, since then, Takayuki Kondo has been active as Akkan Yatsura‘s leader whereas Daisuke Ono recently released a new single “Kemono Michi“.

Despite being busy, the duo decided to team up again however, not under the D.A.T name.

TRD is the name of the duo and is signed to PONY CANYON. The focus of the duo is on creating a new legend not bound by what is “traditional”. TRD make their debut with a mini-album this summer.

The duo will also kick off a radio show together titled TRDのDope Rad Talking (TRD no Dope Rad Talking).

TRAD is scheduled to be released on 16/06/2021, available in regular, limited and Kyanime editions.

A preview of “Take You Higher“, one of the songs on this mini-album (written and composed by R.O.N) is out.

A promotional video is out.

The contents for each edition are the following:

  • Regular: CD only
  • Limited: CD + Blu-ray
  • Kyanime: CD + Blu-ray (bonus footage)

On CDJAPAN, pre-orders + first press editions come with the following bonus:
