LiSA is no doubt a superstar in the world of J-Pop, and she’s pretty much anime royalty at this point given that she has performed numerous hit songs for a wide range of anime.

Though she first gained renown for her work on the 2010 anime Angel Beats!, where she was one of the two vocalists for the band, Girls Dead Monster.

For Angel Beats!, LiSA performed the alternate version of the opening theme My Soul, Your Beats, which is, to this day, one of the most well-known anime openings.

Though LiSA’s songs for Demon Slayer are arguably her most popular. She was the singer of Demon Slayer Season 1’s opening theme Gurenge, which was a huge hit.

She followed this up with Homura for the Mugen Train movie.

Aside from these, LiSA is also known for being the singer of the Sword Art Online theme Crossing Field as well as the Fate/Zero opening song Oath Sign.
