Who is LiSA, the singer who will perform the Japanese intro of the new Spider-Man?

The trip to the archipelago of Spider-Man: Across The Spider-Verse comes with a strong announcement, with an anime star in the credits.

Although she has been especially popular in Japan for a dozen years now, singer LiSA may still be an unknown to you. Still, if you’re an anime fan, you’ve probably heard his melodious songs. After beginnings in various indie groups, Risa Oribe (her real name) began her career in the animation sector, lending her voice to a character fromAngel Beats. The beginnings of an extraordinary journey.

At the same time, she began a solo career, which will remain intimately linked to this universe. Thus, his very first single oath sign in 2011 will serve as the credits to the anime Fate/Zero. His first album which will follow, lover’s mile in 2012, will confirm its immense success in the making. In the Japanese charts held by Oricon, his single and his album then rank respectively in fifth and seventh position; a real card.

A very “lively” career

From then on, the singer never stopped multiplying collaborations for quality works. After participating in the music of Sword Art Online on several occasions, she also imposes her talent by signing one of the endings of the very popular My Hero Academia. But the worst is yet to come. In 2019, LiSa comes out gurengewhich will have the honor of becoming the very first opening of a series that has become cult: Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. The anime experiencing a triumph, his song logically follows the same trajectory. She then became the first solo singer to exceed one million downloads in Japan with this title.

Into The Demon-Verse

Tanjirō’s character continues to bring her good luck when she performs homura in 2020, main song of Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: The Infinity Train. The feature film having become the most profitable Japanese animated film of all time, needless to say, LiSa’s international notoriety will have changed radically.

This unequaled popularity will have decided Sony to call on her, for the release of Spider-Man Across The Spider-Verse. Her next single REALIZE, to be released on June 14, therefore becomes the official credits of this Japanese version. For the occasion, one of the animators even represented her in the multiverse of the film. The singer declared herself “very honoured” to have been chosen for this performance. Let’s hope Tanjirō doesn’t blame him too much for this little American getaway.
