From Gifu to Tokyo, a fight with her mother

LiSA – 紅蓮華 / THE FIRST TAKE

Lisa” is a female singer from Gifu Prefecture.

In 2008, she moved from Gifu to Tokyo to form the rock band “Love is Same All” and became a vocalist. However, many hardships stood in Lisa’s way before she moved to Tokyo.

Lisa had always wanted to pursue a career in music, and she traveled to Tokyo to perform and see some live shows.

As she spent those days, Lisa began to meet her fellow musicians, and her desire to “compete in Tokyo” grew stronger.

While balancing her music activities with a part-time job, she saved up enough money to move to Tokyo. She also decided on what place to live in Tokyo, and when she consulted her mother on a situation where she needed a guarantor to sign a lease, her mother was very much against it.

Lisa says she was “mentally a child” at the time. Lisa shrugged off her mother’s protests and left her parents’ home, almost as if she had run away from home. She started living alone in Takadanobaba, Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo.

Opportunity provided by the encouragement of her band members

After moving to Tokyo, Lisa worked three part-time jobs from morning to night and spent her free time working on her music career.

All she could think of was, “I just have to do it! That was the only thing she could think of. She discussed music with her friends and always aimed to improve herself.

Then came a turning point for Lisa. If you are a fan of Lisa, you probably know this. Yes, she was asked to sing the part of Yui, the second vocalist of the girl band “Girls Dead Monster” in the TV anime “Angel Beats!

Lisa passed the audition which made her major label debut as “Lisa,” but there was a conflict in the background.

However, there was a conflict in the background: the existence of “Love is Same All,” a group she formed after moving to Tokyo.

They supported her in her new place, Tokyo. And the friends who overcame hardships together. Lisa wanted to leave her irreplaceable band members behind, and she wanted to go with them if at all possible.

Of course, since Lisa was the only one chosen, that was impossible.

However, it was the words of one of the band members, of all people, that encouraged Lisa in her struggle. You should definitely do it,” “This is your chance,” “What are you doing here in Tokyo?” They pushed Lisa to do it.

The encouragement of the band members helped Lisa to get up on her feet and become the Lisa that she is today. Without the words of the band members at that time, perhaps “Lisa” would not exist.

Fascinated by the singing voice

LiSA 『炎』 -MUSiC CLiP-

Lisa has taken the anisong industry by storm with her activities in Galdemo.

As of 2022, Lisa has been involved in many tie-up songs and has been used in famous anime productions such as “Fate Series,” “Sword Art Online Series,” “The Lesser Students of Magical High School,” “My Hero Academia,” “Blade of Oni no Kai,” and many more.

How did LiSA become so popular?

Diverse people feel differently, but one reason might be the way she sings.

Lisa’s singing is characterized by a peculiar voice that sounds as if it is squeezed to the very limit. It is like a cry, conveying a sense of desperation, as if she is appealing for something. Perhaps that is what appeals to some people.
