Yoko Ishida won an anime singing contest in 1990, which led to her anisong debut with the song “Otome no Policy”, the ending theme for Sailor Moon R. She’s continued to perform and write lyrics for many anime and games including Ai Yori Aoshi, This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, Ah! My Goddess, Shakugan no Shana, Shirobako, and Strike Witches.
She’s performed in over 10 cities in the United States and around the world in France, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Costa Rica, Korea, China, and Thailand.
She released her first album – sweets – in 2003 and a 20th anniversary collection in 2013.
Yoko Ishida continues to sing and supports diverse fans of different ages all around the world. We’re excited to bring her angelic voice to NYC.
Yoko Ishida will appear at Anime NYC as part of the Anime Diva Night powered by Anisong World Matsuri! The event is free – with a Premium Package including exclusive signed print and Japanese-style High Touch session available now!
