His 2008 single "Kimi, Meguru, Boku" (キミ、メグル、ボク You, Turn, Me?), was his first top 20 hit, reaching #15 on Oricon charts. "Kimi, Meguru, Boku" was used as the opening theme for the anime series Itazura na Kiss. Since then, he has had six top 20 singles and two top 10 albums. 

In 2010, his song "Tōmei Datta Sekai" premiered as the opening for the seventh season of Naruto: Shippuden.

The song "Goodbye Issac" was the fourth ending track to the anime Space Brothers. 

In 2013, his cover of "Rain" by Senri Oe was featured as the ED for The Garden of Words by Makoto Shinkai.
