I was introduced to Leo Ieiri when I was in Japan just 2 weeks ago by a friend.
Then saw her 1st single, Saburina, at Towers on the last shopping opportunity. I bought it since it’s there, just to try it out.To my surprise…
The sound I got is really powerful, especially in the song Saburina. Mind you, RIPE, the side B is also a good song, a slow yet kind of soulful one, compared to Sabarina.
Here’s a little trivial, Saburina is used as the 3rd opening for the anime Toriko.
In short, Leo Ieiri have a good voice, technique and even a Lyricist and Composer.
Hmm, this seems very similar to a certain Singer-Song writer, YUI.
And apparently they are somehow related, Leo Ieiri and YUI comes from the same state, city and cram school. But that is the end of the similarities.
Leo Ieiri will be releasing her 2nd Single SHINE, with the song being used as the opening for Drama, Princess of the Frog, Kaeru no Oujo-sama, which will be staring AKB48’s Oshima Yuko.
It sounded really good, so do give it a try~
