ELISAI ♥ ANISONG
I ♥ ANISONG : FRI 16 SEPT
Born April 14 and hailing from Kanagawa Prefecture, ELISA made her debut in 2007 with “euphoric field”, the opening theme of anime ef – a tale of memories. With her outstanding singing ability rooted in opera and vocal music as well as her transparent voice, she went on to release a number of songs, including many theme songs of hit TV anime series, such as Hayate The Combat Butler and A Certain Scientific Railgun to name a few.
She has made appearances in Animelo Summer Live, one of the biggest anime song festivals in Japan, four years in a row since 2008. She has also made some major-scale headlining shows a success, and has steadily proven herself in live performances.
In June 2014, ELISA released the album AS LIFE which featured singles namely “Soba ni Iruyo”, “REALISM” (both were ending themes of TV anime series Valvrave the Liberator), and “Millenario” (ending theme of TV anime series The Irregular at Magic High School), followed by her first headlining tour in a while in July and August. Later that year in November, she released “EONIAN”, the theme song of the anime movie Expelled from Paradise. The song, which opened the new frontier of collaborating with the worldview of the anime story, attracted attention from various quarters, resulting in a smash hit along with the movie.
2015 saw her overseas projects kicking into high gear, with active participations in many foreign anime events in Malaysia, USA (New Jersey), Macau, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.
ELISA’s latest release is the much-awaited mini album ANICHIRO, which has hit the stores March 23, 2016.
