A sample of a cover song by Otane "7/8", composed by Yuyoyuppe
Otane (ヲタ姐) is an utaite known for her high, airy voice, with a unique, tinkly sort of tone. She has a somewhat large range and is capable of emitting both powerful and quiet vocals. Her voice is often described as "cute" or "pretty"; however, she is also notable for being one of the few female utaite capable of guttural death growls and screamos without the aid of mixing.
She has covered several metal songs, (most notably a cover of "Gaichuu") which often leads to surprise and confusion for people who have only heard covers sung in her normal voice. Because of this, she is sometimes referred to as a ryouseirui of darkness (闇の両声類, yami no ryouseirui). While she is not a trap in the usual sense of the word, her growls sometimes cause fans to confuse her for the opposite gender.
Her most popular solo cover is "Wonderland to Hitsuji no Uta", which currently has over 348K views as of September 2013. Her first cover was "Ikeza Gogo Kuji Don't Be Late" from Macross Frontier, which currently has 8K views, and her first hit cover was "Megurihime Buyoukyoku", which currently has 99K views, both as of September 2013.
Her name is derived from the fact that she is an older sister (姐, ane) and her belief that she is an otaku girl (ヲタクな女子, otaku na joshi). She jokingly calls herself a OL (which usually stands for office lady) because of this, despite the fact that she is still in university.
One of her notable fans is Marty Friedman of Megadeth fame, publicly praising both her screams and normal singing voice, comparing her favorably to Arika Takarano of Ali Project.
