Several of DAI's songs have been used in television shows. Their best song (in my opinion), "Fukai Mori," was used as the second ending song for Inuyasha. Since Inuyasha is now airing on Cartoon Network, eventually I'll be able to hear DAI on American Television.

Also as a warning, "Do the Best" and all of their new singles are being released with copy protection.
