In it, she had written that Yasuda's specialty was that he could "do anything" (nandemo dekiru). In 1999, Yasuda was chosen to be a guitarist for V.WEST. The Kansai Jr band was popular among Jr fans and had its own show Shuukan V.WEST (Weekly V.WEST) on Kansai TV. On the show, the members usually take part in challenges where they have to pick up a new skill and exhibit it at the end of the show. During this time, true to his sister's claim, Yasuda excelled and first earned his nickname "Nandemo dekiru-ko" (The kid that can do anything). After V.WEST's first live at Zepp Osaka in 2001, Yasuda and fellow remaining members, Hiroki Uchi (vocalist) and Ryūhei Maruyama (bassist) were absorbed to form a new Kansai Jr unit Kanjani8 in 2002.
