Honey-chan loves music and anime and when the two combine she can’t help but get excited. The queen bee of Honey’s Anime recently got the chance to interview FyingDog recording artist nano. nano is a Japanese bilingual singer who moved from New York to Japan. She debuted as a professional in 2012 with her first album Nanoir. Her works include the theme songs to anime like Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Aria the Scarlet Ammo, Phi Brain: Puzzle of God, Btooom!, Magical Warfare, M3 the Dark Metal, and Magical Girl Raising Project and video game themes for Gunslinger Stratos 2, Re:Vice[D], and Warriors Orochi. She has toured Germany and Taiwan and had her first U.S. concert at FanimeCon in San Jose, CA. She will be having her homecoming concert in New York City as part of Anisong World Matsuri at Anime NYC.
First, As A New Yorker how excited are you to be preforming in New York City ?
What can the fans expect when watching a nano concert?
What artists or singer had the biggest influence on you in regards to style, singing, attitude or some other aspect of your life as an artist?
When did you make up your mind to become a singer and song writer? To do what it takes to rise to a level where your music is heard by millions.
What was it like when you watch and heard your music carry the opening or closing of an anime for the first time?
You were born in New York and moved to Japan at the age of 14 making you the “mysterious transfer student” in anime tropes. Were you interested in singing and anime before that? What, if any, influence did that experience have on you as an artist?
The schedule of an artist like yourself can be grueling so what keeps you excited and inspired as a singer?
Honey-chan and Honey’s Anime want to thank nano for taking the time to answer our questions about her career and influences. We know it was also special to talk to her on the eve of her exciting home coming concert in New York City. We wish her the best of luck in her career and can’t wait to see her in concert at Anisong World Matsuri at Anime NYC.
