  • C3 AFA Singapore Guest Profile: YURiKA

    From the 30th of November to 2nd December 2018 at the Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre, celebrate ten years of the best in anime, gaming, cosplay, and anisong direct from Japan! The biggest event for regional fans, C3AFA Singapore 2018 is proud to bring to Singapore for the very first time — the talented fast-rising star YURiKA!

    YURiKA was born on 29 October, and hails from Hasuda in Saitama Prefecture. She grew up being exposed to music, having started learning piano from the age of 4. When she was in her final year of elementary school, she was impacted by how anisong was filled and abundance of strong messages, and thus decided to become an anisong artiste one day. In middle and high school, she trained her vocals in the chorus club. She then took part in the Anison Grand Prix for the first time in her final year at high school.

    After that, while juggling school as well as her live singing activities, she attained 6th place in Nippon TV’s Kashou-Ou competition in 2014 as well as winning NHK’s first ever ‘Anisong no Nodo Jiman G” in the same year. In 2016, she won NHK’s “Nodo Jiman” competition held in Sakado city.

    She then passed the first TOHO animation RECORDS next generation artiste audition in 2016, and was subsequently signed to TOHO Entertainment. She performed “Shiny Ray” the opening theme song to the TV Anime “Little Witch Academia” which started its broadcast in January 2017. The song was released as her major debut on 22 February 2017. With an unwavering gaze and a voice that reaches everywhere, she is a new star in the Anisong world.
