TRUE began her career as a singer with the single “anytime, anywhere” produced by Satoshi Shimano. In 2001, her third single, “Way to Love”, was featured on the drama Love Revolution and became a smash hit – selling 300,000 copies and reaching number 10 on the Oricon Chart.

In 2011, she started as a song lyricist and wrote openings and endings from artists such as Eir Aoi, Kis-My-Ft2, LoVendoЯ, and various iDOLM@STER character songs. Her “Beat Generation” performed by the idol group Fairies won the 45th Japan Cable Awards Music Excellence Award. Fans praised TRUE for the passion and tenderness of her lyrics.

In 2014, she began working again as the singer. Starting with the opening theme of Buddy Complex, TRUE has been responsible for popular anime themes for shows including Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, Violet Evergarden, and A.I.C.O. -Incarnation-. She most recently performed “Blast!” from the hit anime film Sound! Euphonium – Our Promise: A Brand New Day.

TRUE has a strong command of music, with brash and hot compositions whose sounds beat and change. When she belts out ballads in her soprano voice, listeners can’t stop their tears. Her voice can’t be contained and will continue to grow and give people energy. As her confidence expands through her work as a singer and artist, TRUE will continue to make great strides. Please look forward to her future success!

This is TRUE’s third appearance at Anime NYC. She performed as part of Anime Diva Night at Anime NYC in 2017 and Anisong World Matsuri at Anime NYC in 2018. We’re very excited to welcome her back!
