Otokaze (音風) ("sound wind" in English) was formed by Taiji Sawada after being hospitalized for a stroke and liver issues, as a special group to cheer up people suffering from similar illnesses as himself. He introduced the member as "friends" and Otokaze (音風) functioned more like a circle rather than a band.
