Having been able to see LiSA in Singapore yearly in Anime Festival Asia since 2011 has been one of my greatest joy and experience with her. And every year LiSA never failed to entertain the audience with her stunning performance and creative ideas on stage. In 2014, it came a great shock to me hearing LiSA sang Crossing Field in English.
Despite, the difference in language barriers when singing in English LiSA totally nailed the obstacle and sang it with confidence, cheerfully and happily jumping on stage you can also hear the lyrics clearly. This totally filled the audience in the hall with maximum level of excitement, fans waving their light sticks frantically along with the song and jumping around like they are having the time of their lives. Looking at this scene thinking back on it a sentence that LiSA always says came to my mind “music connects people around the world”. With this though in her mind I am sure she will be able to reach out to the world with her songs.
Sword Art Online is a Japanese light novel series written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. The series takes place in the near future and focuses on various virtual reality MMORPG worlds. The anime was first aired on July 1012 to December 2012 followed by a sequel called Sword Art Online II was aired in July 2014.
The players who log into SAO for the first time, later discovered that they are unable to log out. They were then informed by the SAO creator, Kayaba Akihiko, that if they wish to log out, they must reach the 100th floor of the game’s tower and defeat the last boss.
However if your characters die in-game, their bodies will also die in the real world. The main protagonist Kazuto Kirigaya who goes with the name “Kirito” was one of the beta testers from the closed beta. Since he already have experience of the game, he felt that he could beat the game and set out on a journey on his own. As the game progresses for 2 years, he befriends a female player named Asuna whom he falls in love with in the end. After the duo discovered the identity of the creator character in SAO, they confronted it and destroy him, freeing themselves and everyone from the game.
