MICHI, the first anisong artist from Okinawa, aims to share her love for anime with the world–her personal motto is “Anime is a universal language.” Her debut single, “Cry for the Truth/Secret Sky”, was featured as the main theme song for Rokka ­Braves of the Six Flowers­. MICHI’s second single, “Checkmate!?” can be heard in Dagashi Kashi’s opening theme. Her third single, “Realistic!” will be featured as the ending theme for P.A. Works’ series Kuromukuro.
