1. Machico – Profile
     Hailing from the Hiroshima prefecture and being brought up in a music-loving family, 24 years-old *Machico* has always wanted to be a singer someday. During high school, she was a member of the band club and participated in numerous vocal auditions. It was from her friends’ encouragement that she took interest in anime and made it her goal to become a voice actress. In 2011 she joined the Horipro Talent Scout Caravan “Seiyuu Artiste Auditions”. With her strong and clear singing voice, Machico managed to reach the finals. Although she missed the first place by a narrow margin, her determination caught the eyes of the staff and her debut was confirmed.
     Pleasing to the ears in both power and clarity, Machico’s unique character and energy can be felt through her songs. She released 2 albums of Anisong covers in June 2014 and April 2015, and has performed solo in numerous Anisong events. January 2016 saw Machico’s first official tie-up with the TV Anime “God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!”, in which she sung the opening theme song “fantastic dreamer”. Her first original 12-track album “Ambitious*” is scheduled for release on 27 July 2016. Her strength as a voice actress and artiste is certainly one to look forward to now and in the years to come!
