Anisong singer Eir Aoi announced via her official website that she will be taking a break due to poor health. Her attendances in the live performances at AFA Thailand 2016, Odaiba Minna no Yume Tairiku 2016, Animelo Summer Live 2016, and Animax Musix 2017 have also been cancelled. Luna Haruna will be replacing her during Animelo Summer Live 2016 on August 26.

Eir Aoi debuted as an anisong singer in 2011, signing for SME Records and releasing her first single "MEMORIA," which is the ending theme for Fate/Zero. Her theme song performances includes series such as Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE, Sword Art Online, and Kill la Kill.

Her latest single, "Tsubasa," was used as the opening theme song for Arslan Senki (TV): Fuujin Ranbu, and the CD sold a total of 12,457 copies in its first week.

i hope she gets well soon. I also hope that all the young artists as well as other popular people in Japan that are getting sick aren't somehow linked to the nuclear fallout from the earthquakes.

she did nothing for shaft? she wont be missed


To be honest that's rather rude. And this is almost the reason why I dislike shaftfags. Oh yeah she did nothing for this? well she can die and I won't care shit. That's what you're clearly saying. You don't have to like her but, you did sound pretty rude here. If you don't like her songs from other series that's fine... but, really, that's just bullshit. No offense.


You haven't read most of his posts, have you? He's just another pretentious person claiming to be older and more mature than anyone else in this forum despite the obvious lack of maturity in his statements. Better ignore the troll.

Oh man, I honestly hope that she recovers soon. Why is there a sudden change in young Japanese getting sick recently? :c

Better to realize when a break is needed and actually take it than force oneself till a point of no return is reached. Aoi can take all the time she wants.

She looks young , that's sad RIP.


Lmao I actually laughed hard because I thought this was supposed to be sarcasm. Now that you actually mean it, I'm bursting into laughter even more.

Well, I like most of her songs. That's shame.

Thought the Japanese was supposed to have good health, all these young adults in the industry having poor health and some dying etc so who knows what will happen to her, hopefully recover of course.


You do know that you can become ill from being overworked right???

Hope she recovers soon. Really enjoyed her songs especially Back to Zero

I hope she recovers but she is nothing like a good singer at all, I'm sorry lol. A fangirl at best.

I hope she gets better soon. She has some really good songs. Tsubasa is by far my favorite OP this season!

Good. Songs on shaft shows have been shit for the most part anyway.

Have you even seen sayonara zetsubou sensei?

SAO and Fate. Seems like just another overhyped singer making money for shitty anime.
What does the shows quality have anything to do with the songs? I specifically said "Songs on shaft shows have been shit for the most part anyway."

I don't recall bringing up shit shows. Of course, all this goes back your main point when you were unclear with your wording and saying ">koufuku shit", which Idk if you were replying to you thinking I thought the show was shit or the songs. And I disagree with you, the songs she's done for the most part minus the few exceptions of the ones that I don't like.
Ok well i guess its a matter of opinions. Idc for her, you dont care for shaft.

Good talk

Considering I dropped it, yes, I found it boring and bad... Though that doesn't say much for the songs. I don't remember the songs for that show, which means they left zero impression on me. "Random nobody"? Uh... What? She's not a nobody LOL.
