An audience with the queen: Nana Mizuki Live Castle x Journey - Queen, Shimomura Yoko Live A Live Original Soundtrack, Sid - Nokoriga & more!

Mizuki Nana is doubtlessly the reigning queen of voice actresses. She career took flight when she gets major roles in hit anime series such as Love Hina, Sister Princess and her defining role Fate Testarossa in Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha. It's almost inevitable that she crosses over to the music industry.

Strong, melodic, and at the same time very expressive, she interprets the emotion in the lyrics and brings out the power of the beat. Head to two of her major concerts in 2011 in her Castle x Journey disc. The recording includes clips from her Live Castle concert and the full duration of her Live Journey concert.

Captured in Blu-ray, the performance, the costumes and the sound are superb. The theme of the disc is queen, come and pay court to her:

Released in 1994, Live A Live is a Japanese RPG in Omnibus form. Each episode features a different protagonist, and each travels a different world to complete a set of goals. In the last episode everyone comes together for a grand finale.

This game takes you from the prehistoric times to the futuristic world, and from the wild west to the far east. The famed composer Shimomura Yoko (who later produced music for the Kingdom Hearts series) was in charge with the Live A Live title. And due to popular demand, the soundtrack is released again through the Square Enix Reprint Project.

Travel the worlds illustrated and coloured by the music of Shimomura Yoko:

Sid is no stranger to J-pop lovers and anime lovers. Uso, the first season ending theme for Full Metal Alchemist and Monochrome Kiss, the first opening for Kuroshitsuji set their style. They fit a powerful rock beat with a memorable melody and atmospheric lyrics like pieces of a puzzle.

Each of their songs call forth different colours. Their newest Nokoriga - Lingering Perfume is a gentle rock tune with soft colours. There is a sense of regret but also a sense of hope in the lyrics. It is the theme song of NHK's information variety program Sukkiri.

Keep yourself fresh, breath in the lingering scent of perfume from Sid:
