Earlier this afternoon at 2pm, the organizers behind the annual Anime Festival Asia (AFA) have announced over their official Facebook page the addition of two anisong artistes who will be making their first performance in Singapore next month!
The two artistes revealed are Aimer, who will be performing on the 27th of November (Friday) and Lia, who will be performing on the 29th of November (Sunday). Aimer started her music career in 2011 and already has a series of singles to her name. More recently, she has performed the ending theme to Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn‘s penultimate episode titled “RE:I AM” as well as the opening theme “Last Stardust” to the second episode of the Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works anime series.
Lia has been around in the anisong scene for much longer, having debuted in 2000. She is known for having performed “My Soul, Your Beats!“, which became the opening theme to the Angel Beats! anime series and reached 3rd place on the Oricon charts. She has also performed the iconic theme songs to CLANNAD: After Story and Air (Toki wo Kizamu Uta and Tori no Uta respectively). With the addition of the two new artistes to the I Love Anisong cast for AFA Singapore 2015, fans will surely have more to look out for!
