Hello, community of Ani-TAY! This will (hopefully) be a thrice-weekly column where I will feature an Artist or Group involved in the Anime music scene.
This week, I'll be featuring My First Story, a rock band formed in 2011. So let's dive straight in!
Band Name - MY FIRST STORY
Genre(s) - Alternative Rock, Post-Hardcore, Emo
Active Period - 2011 - Present

- THE STORY IS MY LIFE
- 虚言 NEUROSE
Their first (and to date, only) Solo Anime Soundtrack was -不可逆リプレイス- (Fukagyaku Replace), the Ending for the sadly underrated anime Nobunaga Concerto.
The song fits into the Emo and Alternative Rock Genres as snug as a glove. Hiro provides an amazing performance on vocals throughout the song, with the band performing superbly. For a first ED, I think Fukagyaku (Irreversible) Replace is downright great. It completely fits the show's themes of Coming of Age, with great lyrics. Hiro sings quite well in English, not jarring, and the dual language use fits the anime's themes too.
Savior of Song, the OP for the 2013 anime Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova, was a collaboration between nano and My First Story.
Other Awesome Songs
Kyogen Neurose, from the album of the same name.
The actual song in the album is split into two songs, monologue (the instrumental part at the beginning) and Kyogen Neurose.
Black Rail, also from Kyogen Neurose.
So here's the end of the first Artists You Should Know, so please give me some feedback on how to possibly improve, and also suggest your own favorite artists you think that We Should Know!
