  • Petite Anisong Diva Who Lights Your Fire – KOTOKO

    Fans of anisong will be no stranger to Kotoko’s powerful vocals, and many of her signature theme songs for popular anime series such as Shakugan no Shana and Hayate no Gotoku, or even the more recent Accel World.

    This petite singer from Hokkaido started her career back in 2000 as a member of “I’ve Sound”, a Japanese techno/trance music production group, which is well-known for providing many theme songs for popular visual novel games and anime series. She then made her major solo debut in 2004 with the album “羽 -hane-“. In total, Kotoko has released five albums and eighteen singles, with the latest single being “→unfinished→” (Accel World’s ending theme), which was recently released on 16 May 2012.

    Having watched anime for over a decade, Kotoko is probably one of my most favourite anisong artiste. Apart from having an amazing voice, her songs varies over a range of styles – from POP to techno/trance to the rock genre, Kotoko always manages to connect to her fans with her versatile voice and charismatic energy on stage.

    In fact, Kotoko is a very talented songwriter, and all the lyrics of her own songs have been penned by herself. According to past interviews, when she is writing a theme song for an anime, she seeks inspiration from the script and pens down useful words or phrases. She then visualises those inspirations in her mind and write the words according to the visuals.

    If you have not heard any songs by Kotoko before, then I would recommend listening to “Light My Fire”, which was released as her 17th single and was written by Ryo of Supercell. The song is a very upbeat rock song and was featured as the first opening theme to the 2011 anime series Shakugan no Shana III -Final-. In addition, here are some other recommended songs based on the top 5 most played Kotoko songs on my anisong playlist:

    1. Re-sublimity (Opening theme for Kannazuki no Miko)
    2. Being (2nd opening theme for Shakugan no Shana)
    3. Shichiten Hakki Shijou Shugi! (2nd Opening theme for Hayate no Gotoku!)
    4. BLAZE (2nd opening theme for Shakugan no Shana II)
    5. Loop-the-Loop (Opening theme for Motto To Love-Ru)

    3 interesting facts about KOTOKO:

    1. Her fanclub is called, “Mutant Dwarf”.
    2. Her favourite food are cherries and strawberries.
    3. Her favourite singer is Icelandic singer-songwriter, Björk.
