Overview: “For me, writing songs is a way of expression that is very close to my true, unadorned self.”
A soprano, composer and singer-songwriter whose style is mostly inspired by neoclassical, new age and folk music. © last.fm. Haruka Shimotsuki possesses an incredibly clear, high, and beautiful voice that fits traditional instruments like a charm. She has sung hundreds of songs since 2000, either doujin or commercial, and is well-known for GUST-series (Atelier and Ar Tonelico), anime, and eroge songs. The most game- and anime-related songs (not including GUST) are positioned as a pop, though. She is a member of several projects: MW with Rekka Katakiri (片霧烈火) and kukui with myu. One of the most attractive parts of her career is a doujin collaboration with MANYO and Nao Hiyama (日山尚). They have been managing many circles: starting with Maple leaf, then arcane+しちごさん。(753), Canoue and tieLeaf, which are still active at the moment. Besides that, she has also been participating in the famous projects like Sound Horizon, Barbarian on the Groove, Voltage of Imagination, WAVE, and more to count.

Aki Misawa has gentle voice that fits very well not only with piano and instrumental music, but with electronic music as well. Four Seasons series is my favourite part of this discography, notable with its amazing instrumental tracks and touching lyrics.
