Suara

Does anyone here listen to Suara?

She does some anime/game OP/ED songs such as Musoka from Utawarerumono and Ichiban Boshi from ToHeart2.

In my opinion, she's probably the best female anime/jpop singer. Her voice is very mature and her music style is unique but catchy.

Here's a sample of Musoka if you haven't heard it yet.

I love Suara songs, the last work OP and ED for Blue Drop was perfect.

I think Suara is an awesome singer. She has such a nice voice. I like all of the songs that I have heard by her. Although, my favorite one up to this point is Musoka from Utawarerumono.

Suara is the first artist I felt compelled to... Acquire her albums and singles

Heck, I've even seen her 2007 live tour video!

Suara has a wonderful voice. There's sometimes a 'sad' and poignant quality to it - which is why I think her voice is so perfect for many 'bittersweet' anime.

I think my fave song she's done is definitely ''Blue'', the full version of Blue Drop's OP. Although the string arrangement for that song is also particularly excellent, so that obviously helps.

I'm also very fond of ''Kimi ga Tame'', ''Seiza'', ''Musōka'' and ''Tsubomi - blue dreams''.


Kimi ga Tame:

Musoka rocks man.One of my all time favourite. Her live voice sounds so different from her recording voice af watching Animelo.

I adore her songs, especially her Opening and final episode ending theme in Utawarerumono. I agree with Diodati's comments about her voice having a poignant quality to it. Her voice is very touching for emotional scenes.

The songs she sang for Utawarerumono, including the PS2 Opening, is what attracted me to her in the first places

There are tons of great song in her Yumeji album, but those were some of the best

I love Suara... she has a sweet yet emotional voice. Amaneuta and Yumeji must be one of my best buys. But my fave song from her is from the newest single Wasurenaide.. I'm melting~~~

Haunting Melody (Tears to Tiara for PS3) sounds very nice...the short what...20 seconds or so that are available? I'm not sure if this is going to be the OP/ED song for the anime though.

honestly, I dont like most of her recent stuff. feels like they are trying too hard to make a new hit single. of course, she will always be one of the top otaku cult choices.

Yesteday I just got Suara's latest album, Taiyo to Tsuki, and Yumeji on SACD.

I have only listened to the SACD layer of both albums and I must say that the recordings are excellent on both. Better than most of the JPOP albums I have heard in recent years. Pure -Aquaplus legend of acoustic- still has the best sound quality out of all the Suara's album I've heard though.

As for the songs themselves, right now I like the ones on Yumeji better. Though this might change as I listen to Taiyo to Tsuki a few more times.

BTW somehow I think that Suara's live performance is sometime better than her CD recording...

totally downloaded that video a while back;took almost a month at 99.8%

My personal favorite has to be musouka OP for utawarer, it amplifies the epiccness of the anime itself especially that ending pose in the opening

I'm liking her new album a lot. It's the best jpop album I've heard this year so far. After listening to it many times, Mahiru no Tsuki is my fav track.

Right now my favourite song would be Kimi ga tame. Her life performance of this song at Animelo Summer Live 2007 was spectcular (but too bad that the sound quality of the DVD sucks ).

Other songs that I like are Musouka, Kimi dake no tabiji (PS2 Utawarerumono OP), Moonphase (the bonus track on Yumeji SACD) and memory (Tears to Tiara ED). But in general, I like almost all her songs.

The arrangements on the Pure album are also not bad too.

I hope that in the future they will continue to release her albums in SACD or other high quality formats.

Somehow I don't really enjoy the Pure album.. maybe it's the arrangement that doesn't suit my taste.

Indeed Taiyou to Tsuki is a great album, purchased it with no questions asked. She's really a treat for audiophile's ears.

Agreed that Animelo 2007 DVD quality sucks, I hope they will do better for Animelo 2008, because she was really outstanding, heck I'd say she was the best singer that night (putting aside my bias on Mizuki Nana). She performed "haunting melody" and the debut song "seiza" (from amane uta). She was really cute in person too. <3

I love her songs. The ED for both Kimikiss and White Album is very melancholic.
