With distinctive rasping vocals that seemingly glide over balladic tunes, Japanese singer Aimer has been taking both the music and anime industries by storm. Aimer, a verb meaning “to love” in French, debuted on September 7th, 2011 with her single “Rokutousei no Yoru”, which was featured as the ending theme to the anime film No.6.
Aimer’s sixth single, “StarRingChild”, was released in May 2014 and was featured as the main theme song for the final episode of the popular anime series Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn. It also charted in the Top 3 on Japan’s most notable music chart, ORICON. Aimer’s eighth single, “Brave Shine”, was released in June 2015 and was used as the opening theme to the anime series Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, resulting in substantial popularity. The first film in the Fate series, Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] I.presage flower, was released in October 2017 and featured Aimer’s “Hana no Uta” as its main theme song. It instantly became a hit both domestically and internationally.
With a distinguished sound and numerous anime theme songs under her belt, Aimer continues to broaden her presence and following worldwide.
