Title: Torisetsu | Artist: Kana Nishino | Movie: Heroine Shikakku
Why I picked it: Kana Nishino has been one of my favorite singers ever since I started listening to Japanese music. One of her more recent singles, Torisetsu was used as the theme song of the movie Heroine Shikkakku (No Longer Heroine) based off the manga of the same name. (It’s excellent, but unfortunately there aren’t any subs yet.) With this song, Kana Nishino stays at the top of not only my list of favorites, but my dad’s as well. Do give it a try, and check out the lyrics here, they’re really adorable and cute.
