KOKIA Fan Club

Akiko Yoshida (吉田亜紀子 Yoshida Akiko) is a Japanese singer-songwriter, who performs under the stage name Kokia (stylised as KOKIA). She is best known for her songs "Arigatō..." (ありがとう... Thank You) (which reached number 1 in Hong Kong when it was covered by Sammi Cheng) and "The Power of Smile." She is also recognised for her numerous contributions to anime/game soundtracks, the most notable being "Ai no Melody/Chōwa Oto (With Reflection)" for the film Origin: Spirits of the Past, "Follow the Nightingale" for the game Tales of Innocence, and "Tatta Hitotsu no Omoi" for the anime Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino. (Personally I really dislike the common description on Wikipedia and everywhere else. Yea, Arigatou is her most famous song, but that's only because it got covered by Sammi Cheng. It was written over a decade ago and totally not repreentative of her current capabilities, both vocal or composition wise. Her later album, "The Voice," is much more representative of her breadth of vocal techniques and the diverse musical genres.) When I first joined, I was amazed that such an amazing singer wasn't in the People section of MAL. Now, 18 months later, there still isn't a fan club dedicated to her. I simply refuse to believe that I am the only Kokia fan out of over 100,000 MAL members. Therefore, as a social experiment, I am making this club and simply not inviting anyone for the time being and see if anyone will even notice it. Feel free to join or invite others though.

shinkenshi-san, i believe you're missing one anime relation with our beloved kokia.. and that is "kioku no hikari (記憶の光)", one of the uchuu senkan yamato 2199 endings.. which by the way is beautifully breath-taking!
