Yoko Kanno doesn't write her given name in kanji, just like Brain Powerd's
main designer Mutsumi Inomata writes her entire name in hiragana. The
vocals for "Santi-U" and many other songs composed by Kanno is officially
credited to "Gabriela Robin," but .... On "Gabriela Robin" and whether or
not Youko Kanno sings on any of her anime projects .... hmmm, funny that. ^^
