Ani-Music: Mizuki Nana!

Boasting an impressive track record, I'd like to introduce to you yet another amazing singer. Who is this, you might ask? ItÂ’'s none other than Mizuki Nana (水樹 奈々)!

Scouted by King Records at the age of 20, she has since built a substantial fan base not only as an ani-song artist, but also a mainstream J-Pop singer! Known for her powerful voice, her performances are guaranteed to blow you away!

She is a holder of several "firsts"! In October 2005, her 12th single Eternal Blaze made it into the 2nd place in the Oricon charts, becoming the first seiyuu (voice actress) ever to achieve this! In June 2009, she made history by being the first seiyuu to have her original album (Ultimate Diamond) topping the Oricon charts! From there, she has gone on to release several more chart-topping hits, such as Phantom Minds (opening song for Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha The Movie 1st) and Shin Ai (opening song for anime White Album).

But wait there's more! In 2011, she became the first seiyuu (and 8th female solo artist) to hold a concert in Japan's largest concert hall: Tokyo Dome. Wow O(≧∇≦)O

Moreover, she has an awesome voice-acting record in the 10 years she has been a seiyuu! She has clinched popular roles in animes such as Naruto (Hyuuga Hinata), Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha's (Fate Testarossa) and many more!

She's so so so popular, that she had to turn down the offer to perform at Animelo Summer Live 2012, the biggest annual anime songs concert in Japan managed by Animelo Mix. Talk about being busily famous!

She sings, models, hosts radio shows, voice-acts, and even writes her own lyrics! She's the multi-talented Mizuki Nana! Won't you want her to be performing here someday? :D
