kanon x kanon:
Mystic female cello-vocalist and Akiba-kei male sound creator,
Mystic female cello-vocalist and Akiba-kei Otaku male sound creator joined together to form a “2.5th-dimension phenomenal musical unit”. The duo’s deep affection for anime and anime songs, mixed with their distinctive visual expression, is definitely something new. You say you may have seen these two people somewhere before…perhaps you think they look a lot like Kanon Wakeshima and kanon of An Cafe? …Only in your imagination! These two are intangible products of thought, emerging from the 2.5th dimension that lies between the real world (3D) and the world of Anime (2D) to create Anime songs for our enjoyment.
And now the mystery begins! Their debut single “Calendula Requiem” has been chosen as the opening theme of Fuji TV network anime Shiki (Corpse Demon), which began on October 14, 2010. Obtaining a much coveted right at the beginning of their career shows how much attention they have already garnered!
The single has been released on November 17, 2010 in Japan and on November 23, 2010 in USA. There are also plans to release it in Europe (date yet to be decided).
