Leafa Spirit quarterback Cooper Kanie is a fan of reggaeton music and reggaeton mashups, indicative of the laid-back, easy, sensual hipster ambiance at Leafa College. He has an extensive collection of reggaeton music from the last 70 years and is an aficionado of an old Don Omar standard, "Danza Kuduro." He has done a number of mashups and also arranged a rendition of the song for the Leafa Spirit Pep Band, his only musical contribution to the college to date.

"Dad's been in contact with me while I've been here in Canberra," said Cooper, referring to his father Seiya. "He's especially happy that reggaeton music is really popular in Australia, especially during the spring and summertime. It's, of course, fall and winter in Japan at this time. But he loves reggaeton music like me because it reminds him of sunny beaches, eloping with my mom Isuzu (Sento) and my godmother Tifa {(Latifa Fleuranza), and just taking a break from maintaining an amusement park. Reggaeton and Caribbean music is a thing in Canberra, but we love every type of music that the world gives us.

"I have no plans to help dad in the business because I want to make a massive living as a quarterback and become a lifelong student of the game before I use part of my fortune to help my parents run the place. Dad and Mom always tell me to keep my options open and if all else fails, you got us at the Amagi Brilliant Park.

"And my wife Yuuna (Yuuki) also wants me to pursue a career as a gridiron player. She wants to even be a cheerleader if she can. I told Yuuna, 'you need to finish your studies and get ready for a job in the real world. Maybe you can even join my father's business as an assistant because you love to entertain people.' She agreed and that became our goal for this year because we're going to graduate this semester and walk. It's going to be a long road having to graduate from Leafa, but it's a great day to be part of something magical.

"And yes, I plan to bring the reggaeton and Caribbean music while I'm at it."
