Web Database for Anime Song Lyrics Opens in Japan

Anicashi.jp website is fully authorized by Japanese lyricists

Anicashi.jp, an official website for searching for the lyrics of songs linked to anime, character voices, and special-effects series, launched a public beta test in Japan on December 15. Unlike similar offerings in Japan and outside Japan, Anicashi.jp is fully authorized by the Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers (JASRAC), the society that manages copyrights for Japanese lyricists. Anicashi.jp plans to officially open in early 2008 with more features in addition to the search function.

The site allows users to search by artist, song title, tie-in program and series, or any phrase within the lyrics. For example, entering "Aya Hirano" (in Japanese) yields 52 songs, entering "Alumina" yields Nightmare's ending theme for Death Note, entering "Gundam" yields 166 songs, and entering "Yapapa" yields Etsuko Nishio's "Jaja Uma ni Sasenai de" opening theme for Ranma ½.
