LiSA is the first music artist to sign under the Aniplex Label. Immediately making an impact in her career, LiSA grabbed a role on the hit anime Angel Beats! as the singing voice for Yui, one of the vocalists in the in-show band Girls Dead Monster. LiSA's earnest personality and emotional live performances caught the public's attention, and it was clear that her star would only continue to rise. In 2011, LiSA's first single oath sign was chosen as the theme song to the wildly popular anime Fate/Zero. The single entered the Oricon weekly charts at #5, and went on to capture the #2 spot on the daily charts.
"Fate/Zero" is a visual novel written by Gen Urobuchi ("Madoka Magica", "Saya no Uta") and is a prequel to TYPE-MOON's hit visual novel "Fate/stay night". The best-selling novel series has since been adapted into a television animated series earlier this year, of which each episode directly covers the original novels. Fate/Zero was the first animated series to be simulcasted worldwide in 8 different subtitle languages immediately following its airing in Japan.
The Fate/Zero Blu-Ray Disc Box I is now available for purchase. The box set can be purchased through Rightstuf.com
