Techno Spectacular.

I’m going to focus on two techno-pop artists today. First up,

Kotoko

Kotoko is very… unique. Her music is usually more techno than pop, but she does a good job of it. Since she is usually involved with singing for anime openings and closings, she’s probably not the most well-known, but she isn’t left in trash like some artists. She has twelve of her own singles (not including the ones released under the I’ve Sound project) and four albums. She also has one mini album and one live album.

She came into the music scene in 1999, and is still doing well as of present. She composes and writes lyrics, but not just for herself, but for other I’ve Sound artists, as well. Some anime she has had openings/closings for include Onegai Teacher, Onegai Twins, Kannazuki no Miko, Maria-sama ga Miteru, and Shakugan no Shana. Kotoko also has performed in the US three times, her first time back in 2005 at Anime Expo.

I recommend her songs…

  • Second Flight
  • Re-sublimity
  • Face of Fact
  • Shooting Star
  • Suppuration
  • Chercher

Nami Tamaki

Now, she’s pretty much messing around with different types of music, but in her old days, she was pure tech-pop. She debuted back in 2003 with her Sony Music Japan album Greeting, and has since released three more albums and a compilation album. Greeting had a US release. She has also released fifteen singles, about half of them making the top ten.She’s known for her young age and her powerful dancing.

She is also probably best known for her work on anime, most prominently Gundam SEED and Guman SEED Destiny, where she has contributed at least five songs. Aside from Gundam, though, she’s contributed songs to Kiba and D. Gray-man as well. She performed at the age of fifteen at Pacific Media Expo as well.

My favorite songs by this singer are…

  • Heroine
  • Prayer
  • Brightdown
  • High School Queen
  • Believe
  • NEVER STOP MY HEART
  • Sanctuary
  • Eternal Voice

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for a Vampire Knight review special.
