Kylee has revealed the cover jackets for her new single “Daisuki Nanoni” which is featured as the second opening theme for anime Blast of Tempest (Zetsuen no Tempest). Coupling track “Anywhere” has been featured as the theme song for NHK World TV series “J-MELO”. Single “Daisuki Nanomi” is Kylee’s 7th and is set to hit stores February 13th 2013 – updated details and audio preview follow.

American born Kylee (18) is splitting her time between Japan and America as she has just entered her freshman year at Stanford University (impressive!) in Palo Alto California. She made her debut in 2008 at age 14 with independent released single “Vacancy” that was used as  ending theme song for Sony Entertainment’s anime Xam’d: Lost Memories. She then signed with Sony Music Japan and released her first major label single “Kimi ga iru kara” in 2010.

Her 3rd single “Everlasting” was featured as theme song for the second part of OVA anime Mobile Suit Gundam UC (Unicorn). Most recently Kylee was one of 12 artists who participated on the YUI tribute album “SHE LOVES YOU” covering her hit song “My Generation”.

Anime Blast of Tempest (Zetsuen no Tempest) is adapted from manga written by Kyou Shirodaira and illustrated by Arihide Sano and Ren Saizaki. It follows the story of high school students and childhood friends Yoshino Takigawa and Mahiro Fuwa. Through a series of flash-backs we learn Mahiro is very close to his sister Aika (Kana Hanazawa) who was murdered a year earlier. Mahiro finds a strange talisman and is able to speak to mysterious Hakase Kusaribe – princess of the Kusaribe clan and makes an agreement to help her save the world from destruction if she can use her powers to find the culprits behind his sister’s death.
