With a bubbly and easy-going sounding vocal portrayal of characters, Kayano got to strut her stuff in the following years with a string of major roles in popular anime. Menma from Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae o Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai, Inori from Guilty Crown, and Mikono Suzushiro from Aquarion Evol!

Her ability to sound both bubbly & flighty one moment, then mature & soothing within the same character, has definitely helped solidify Kayano has a hot new act in such a short period of time! We see great things for her in the future - and we'll be keeping watch!
