Nao Toyama Announces Three Consecutive Months of Digital Single Releases!

  • Voice actress and singer Nao Toyama has announced her first-ever three consecutive months of single releases as part of her 7th Anniversary/Christmas Eve Project! The concept behind these releases is Nao Toyama’s signature songs.
  • The first release, titled “Shut Out My Lie,” focuses on Nao Toyama’s strong suit, dance, and is a dance music track. The lyrics convey a sense of not realizing when one has lost their true self, realistically portraying the emotions of people living in modern society, including the feelings of unease that lurk in daily life.
  • In the second release, “Mayonaka no Kaiju” (Midnight Monster), Nao Toyama utilizes her voice, which is indispensable in her line of work, in a pop song. She layers her voice multiple times, creating a chorus unlike anything she’s done before. The rhythmic beats, along with the harmonious interplay of guitar and bass, make for an infectious melody that’ll have you grooving without even realizing it.
  • For the third release, “(Abbr.) Fanfare for All Humanity,” Nao Toyama sends a musical message of “Congratulations” to everyone, aiming to bring smiles to all. This is her shortest song so far, but has the longest title! The lyrics and composition are by Yusuke Yamada, known for his work on Nao Toyama’s popular songs like “Kimi to Boku no Symphony” and “Goodbye Moratorium.”
  • Also, mark your calendar for the 7th Anniversary Party “Live☆Pallet,” celebrating Nao Toyama’s 7th year as a singer. The event will be held on February 12, 2024, at Ebisu Garden Hall. Keep an eye on Nao Toyama for more exciting developments to come!

    Title: It has been a long-standing tradition in my family that “any type of noodles will work for Toshikoshi soba.” Of course, you can also use tandan noodles, wonton noodles, or soki soba with menso. I’m late. My name is Toyama from Flying Dog.

    Well, back to the topic, what exactly is this year’s New Year’s Eve soba? When I say that, there is always a big fuss over whether I want to eat this or that. If Toyama here says ramen, Toyama over there will say Neapolitan, and Toyama diagonally across the street will say Wanko Soba, and Toyama, three doors down, will say pho! It’s no secret that it’s a Hitly Only Lonely Family Meeting, but this is an annual event held on New Year’s Eve: a general election for all noodles. The winner of the prestigious 1st place after surviving a fierce battle was

    Drururururururururururururu Dan! Yakisoba with bean paste.

    I’m not very good at cooking, so I push myself to do my best, but don’t be surprised, I can still eat delicious food. Just when the ankake is about to be completed, the New Year’s Eve bell, which is meant to erase earthly desires, rings out, and with the ankake, a wish is made for good luck to the flying dog.
    I know you’re saying “Wow”, but it’s auspicious, so there’s a fanfare! Fanfare for all humanity!
    Lyrics/Composition: Yusuke Yamada
    Arrangement: Souma Kanai
