SMEJ (Sony Music Entertainment Japan) is launching a new music label starting in April 2017, and it’s called “SACRA MUSIC”. It will focus on ‘anisong’ artists who are widely expanding their activities not only in Japan but also overseas.
This direct quote from one of the many news articles surfaced online stated:
“They are gathering artists with a wide range of activities overseas aiming for worldwide deployment.”
And also, this new label picked up the anisong industry’s best artists, with 14 groups/solo performers listed below (order arranged according to the announcement):
5. Sako Tomohisa
6. Kana Hanazawa
7. Haruna Luna
11. Ayano Mashiro
13. PENGUIN RESEARCH
The official site of “SACRA MUSIC” also stated the following:
“Please look forward to overseas events, live holdings, song releases on a global scale.”
Oh man, I’m definitely looking forward to this! Good thing they included some seiyuus such as Sako Tomohisa and Kana Hanazawa. And Kalafina and ClariS on the top of this list makes me happy lol XD. I just wonder why Aimer, fripSide and others didn’t involved with this. I just hope they’ll perform together here in PH, or else release something new together. Ahhhh! I can’t wait to see how this will turn out! 🙂

I’ve been interested to this Lisani lives for years (it started on 2010) because Im a huge fan of Anisongs and its performers. The artist line up for 2016 were as follows:
2016.01.23 (SATURDAY STAGE)
– THE IDOLM@STER THREE STARS!!!
2016.01.24 (SUNDAY STAGE)
Great set of artists though it still not the best. This time, some of my faves isn’t available for this event I guess. Kalafina has 8th anniv lives on 01/22-23, Nana Mizuki has been busy lately promoting her new album ‘SMASHING ANTHEMS’. While ClariS, JAM PROJECT, T.M.Revolution will not attend this year. Aside from LiSA, Eir, Minorin and Mami Kawada, what interests me most is that Aimer was there! And also, I also started listening to this year’s EXTRA ARTIST Ayano Mashiro and she’s pretty good. So I guess Day 2 is more interesting. haha!
