I am not spamming you if I am actually going to write a post about these two female singers. You can scan/skim/skip this paragraph though, since I need to do some background explanations first. Last month, Anime Diet last month got contacted by Mr. Eidi Kakuno of Eijing Production to comment and review about their singers. So here I am, definitely writing about music, since I really enjoy listening to Japanese pop music. This is the beginning of a weekly column, so I am picking up Music Monday from a hash tag, so it is something like Manga Monday.
Ayako is a new 2011 produced artist, she was trained as a pianist from when she was five, and worked as a model. Her first single/song is named “Tanabata” and is avaliable on Amazon.co.jp with a sample there. On the cover of the single, Ayako is wearing a yukata, and a bit of a background on what Tanabata or 七夕is. This is definitely a Japanese Star festival, a Romeo & Juliet type story, for star crossed lovers. The Japanese celebrate by writing wishes on strips of paper, and hanging them on trees. Are there any anime you can think of that has the celebration of Tanabata in it? Personally I know this as the story of the Princess and the Cowherder.
