You have probably heard of Arina Tanemura, the famous mangaka who created Full Moon wo Sagashite and The Gentlemen’s Alliance Cross, but you may not have had the chance to hear her sing.
Tanemura has been working on a character song album titled Princess Tiara, which will be released on March 13. The songs are based on ten of her manga and heroines and are performed by the mangaka herself.
To celebrate the release of her album, Tanemura will appear at a promotional event at Animate’s Yokohoma store on April 7. Fans who live in Japan can get a ticket to the event along with their CD when they pre-order at Animate’s Yokohama, Ikebukuro, Shibuya, or Shinjuku store. There’s only a limited number of tickets, so those who pre-order will have to pick up their copy quickly.
