posted on by Egan Loo
The listings for the newest K-On! CD singles have revealed that the late singer-composer Bice wrote a song for K-On! before she passed away in July. As reported last month, Bice's official website announced on July 30 that she passed away in her home on July 26 due to a heart attack. The K-On! song she wrote, "Gohan wa Okazu," appeared in episode 20, which just aired on Tuesday. As recently as two days before her passing, she wrote on her blog about writing a song for a popular anime.
Bice made her debut on a major label with her self-titled maxi-single in 1998. She worked on the soundtracks for the Mahoraba ~Heartful days~ and Kirarin Revolution television anime series, as well as the soundtrack for the PlayStation 2 game Rimokokoron. (She worked on Mahoraba ~Heartful days~ under the stage name Anne.) She also performed the "Like Someone in Love" opening theme song for the Japanese live-action television adaptation of Yayoi Ogawa's Kimi wa Pet (Tramps Like Us) manga.
