    Her new single is "Unknown Vision," which actually came out like, a year ago, lol. There are two new songs, "Unknown Vision" and "Issai E," a karaoke version of "Unknown Vision," as well as "Magic Garden" that was originally published on her album "Red Planet." I highly recommend "Unknown Vision," the song is fantastic!

    I've been listening to her for nearly 15 years now, ever since I was kid and was fascinated by her ending themes songs for Outlaw Star. Hiru no Tsuki and Tsuji no Ie will always bring nostalgic memories back every time I hear them. Her albums are classic.

    So enchanting and still bewitching over the years. I believe I heard one of her songs for the first time... in the 90s? Back when Voices was featured in Macross Plus. The tags are very annoying, though: they say nothing about the genre of music. Akino Arai is a new age and folk singer.

    Akino Arai is one of the very few Japanese artists I keep on returning to after a longer period of not listening. Airy, wonderful songs. :)
