my favorite singer-Risa Oribe2014-09-06 16:23:57
Risa Oribe(織部 里沙) better known as LiSA(an acronym for Love is Same All) is one of my favorite Japanese singers. She’sbest known for her workon Angel Beats! as the second vocalist for the fictionalband Girls Dead Monster. She lends her singing voice to the character Yui. “Ichiban no Takaramono (Yui final ver.)” is the song that made me an instant fan of LiSA. The first time ever hearing the song it was an emotional experience since the song is very sad and touches your heart. Every time I have watched a live YouTube video of her singing this song by the end of the song she’s in complete tears.
She made her first solo appearance in the Japanese music scene in April of 2011 with her mini-album Letters to U. She composedthe track “Believe in Myself” and she wroteall the lyrics for that album. Shereleased her first solo single “Oath Sign” inNovember 2011, which was the opening song for the animeFate/Zero. She finally released her first solo album in February of 2012 called Lover”s”mile. She released her second single in August of 2012 “Crossing Field” which was the first opening for the anime Sword Art Online. Her third single “Best Day, Best Way” will be out next month on April 3rd.
I’ve been following her music since I heard her sing for the anime Angel Beats! All of her music is fantastic to me, she putsso much emotion into every single song and performance. One of my favorite things about her is her positive outlook on life. Ihave been reading her blog for a little over a year now. Everything she talks about in her blog always make me smile and laughliterally out loud. She has a great love for her fans and always talks about them in her blog and shows off all the lovely gifts they have sent her from cards, candy, and Toy Story collectables especially of Woody her favorite character.Her personalityis absolutely awesome and I hope one day I can meet her because we both have similar outlooks on life.
My other favorite thing about her is her amazing fashion sense. Her style on stage is absolutely kawaii(cute in Japanese) always wearing cute tutus and tights. She is a huge fan of fashion and is always talking about the next seasons clothing and not being able to wait to wear it. It’s very cute! Her style is very Harajuku but also has a very rock inspired look to most outfits. She also likes designing clothes and hopefully one day have her own fashion line in the future.
Hope everyone enjoyed this article! And as LiSA always says at the end of every blog post:
Today is another great day.
