     It was recently announced that Aiko has been chosen to sing the theme song for the movie, A Silent Voice.

Aiko has openly shared her love of reading manga, and has even been a huge fan of the manga series A Silent Voice. The last time she sang a theme song, was for a movie that was released in 2015 called ‘Senpai to Kanojo.’ Plus, the last time she sang the theme song for an animation project was back in 2005 for ‘One Stormy Night.’

     Make sure to check out some exciting comments from Aiko!


     When I first got the offer to sing the theme song for ‘A Silent Voice’, I was completely blown away. I loved reading the manga series, and I got so into the series, I once actually talked about the whole 1st volume at one of my concerts. And so, not only am I absolutely thrilled for this wonderful opportunity, but I also want to sing a song that will connect me closely to this film. Recently, I’ve been so pumped and giving my all, and it does gets tiring, but I’m so happy to be able to do this. Thank you so much! Ahhhhhh! Yayyy! Sorry, I can’t contain my excitement, but I hope you will all love it, too.

     More details are coming your way, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled.
