Shakugan no Shana OP2 was my reason for starting to love her as well.


UselessEgg | Mar 28, 5:31 AM
I share a similar experience with @StalkerFairy. SnS OP2 made me instantly fall in love with her voice, and for a time I also watched different shows just bc she sung osts for them. I associate "being" with good feelings now since it was my first, wayy back in 06-07. :')

Love her!


Nintendofan204 | Oct 4, 2015 2:38 PM
Her voice is amazing. I love her.

Ever since I first recognise her back in 2007 with Shakugan no Shana's OP2, I've been in love with her. "being" went on to become my one of most fav OP of all time(nearly 10 years on and I sitll love this song; listen to it almost daily).

Ever since then, I've made it a point to watch the shows where she performs the OP/ED, which include Hayate no Gotoku, Kamen no Maid Guy, Kannazuki no Miko, Accel World. I've also ventured forth and have listened to a significant portion of her works from the various eroges.

The funny thing is, in retrospective, even if "being" was the first time I started to recognise her, the very first song I heard her sing was actually Onegai Sensei's OP though I did not realise at the time(I did find the song kinda addictive though at the time)

In my opinion, her top 4 best songs are "being", "Face of Fact", "Resolution of Soul" and the very godly "Went Away".

"Went Away" is highly recommended if you want to hear how an example of how a goddess sings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F0BEnv6xNyA

On the other spectrum, one of her most darkest and most haunting song is "Lament"
