Tasogare Otome x Amnesia OP Live -- Suzuki Konomi

The incredibly talented mid-teen singers just keep coming. Two years ago, it was ClariS. Last fall it was supercell's Koeda. This spring, it is Suzuki Konomi, the 15-year-old from Osaka who does the OP for Tasogare Otome x Amnesia.

Last year, she won Animax's National Anisong Grand Prix, beating out over ten thousand entrants by belting out songs from Macross Frontier like Diamond Crevasse and Northern Light. This spring, she is making her pro debut singing an anime OP. Here she is doing it live:

Pretty incredible for a live performance, eh? The comments on Nicovideo are dominated by words like "skillful," "cool," and "goose bumps."

Here is another video, showing her progress through last fall's Anisong competition:

You'll be hearing a lot more from this girl, for sure.

An excellent melody that really helps set the mood for the show it's being used for. It's so nice to see these skilled artists emerge through the industry that we love. (:
