[Eir Aoi profile]
Singing has been Eir Aoi’s passion all her life; she fronted a band she formed in high school. Although she once gave up pursuing music as a career after high school, she resumed singing as a hobby and drew attention with her singing skills, as well as the beauty, the forcefulness and the stretch of her voice – which all led to her “print debut” on Lis Ani! Vol. 5 (Sony Magazines) in April 2011. Later that year, she made her real debut on October 19 with “Memoria”, the ending theme of TV anime Fate/Zero, which debuted at #8 on the Oricon single chart and sold close to 60,000 copies.
April 2012 saw the release of album Prayer, a tribute to Fate/Zero, in which she proved her much-talked-about singing skills. The album debuted at #12 on the Oricon chart. In September, she released second single “Aurora” (opening theme of TV anime Mobile Suit Gundam AGE: Third Generation series) .
She went on to release third single “Innocence” (opening theme of TV anime Sword Art Online: Fairy Dance series) in November, which debuted at #6 on the Oricon single chart.
Eir opened the year 2013 with the release of her much-anticipated first full-length album BLAU on January 30, which debuted at #4 on the Oricon album chart and was distributed online in 20 countries. She released single “Cobalt Sky” (opening theme of the month on TBS Network’s CDTV in July) on June 26, and released “Sirius” (opening theme of TV anime Kill La Kill) on November 13.
This year on Jan 29, “AUBE” was released which included “Sanbika” from the TV animation series “Kill la Kill”.
Eir is also expanding her sphere of activities outside Japan; this summer she performed at a special “Kill la Kill” event at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, the largest anime convention in North America and Anime Festival Asia Indonesia which attracted over 40,000 attendees!
Her official Facebook page is “Liked” by over 300,000 people around the world, which shows the high degree of attention she attracts – she is absolutely the hottest female vocalist right now in Japan, and perhaps she will come to your country soon!
