Here is the live-action version of the song in the OP. The name of the song is
「創傷イノセンス 」 (my translation: Wounded Innocence). It was sung by Maaya
Uchida (内田真礼). Her family name = Uchida = 内田.
This is her debut single. But Maaya has done a lot of voice actress work for
anime series in the past. Here is her Wikipedia page in Japanese:
. . . and she has an English-language Wikipedia page as well:
The CD of the full version of "Wounded Innocence" goes on sale on April 23rd.
Here is her Facebook page:
Here is her Twitter:
A few hours ago, she sent this Tweet out to her fans:
"How was the OP to Akuma no Riddle, "Wounded Innocence" !? . . . At the
moment I first saw it, it gave me goose bumps! . . ."
Here you can see her doing her work in front of a microphone in the studio:

"Wounded Innocence" is the so-called "debut single" in Maaya Uchida's
career. But in fact she has done quite a lot of singing work. She has done
"character songs", anime opening themes, anime insert songs and anime
closing themes. She has sung theme songs for games too.
And she has done all sorts of other miscellaneous stuff. In particular, she
has done quite a lot of voice acting in TV anime series. It is all listed in
detail on her Japanese language Wikipedia page. From looking at that, after
singing the theme song for a game, her second musical work was this song:
Title of the song: 恋、ヨロシクお願いします!
Pronounced as: Koi, yoroshiku onegaishimasu!
Name of the music group: シトロン
Pronounced as: Shitron (the French word for "lemon", I guess)
Members of the group: 日高里菜, 内田真禮 and 東山奈央
Date: May 11, 2011
Type of song: Anime TV series insert song (テレビアニメ挿入歌)
Anime series: 『神のみぞ知るセカイ』
. . . in English: "The World God Only Knows"

Because of the existence of all of the past stuff that she has sung, some
people have disputed the official statement that "Wounded Innocence" is
actually Maaya Uchida's "debut single". Decide for yourself.
