Voice actress and singer Aina Kusuda's new album, Next Brilliant Wave, sold 9,000 copies in its debut week and ranked #3 on the Oricon album chart for the week of May 2-8. The album shipped on May 4. Next Brilliant Wave both sold more copies and ranked higher on its first week than her first album, last October's First Sweet Wave. That earlier album sold 8,000 copies and ranked #5 in its first week.
Kusuda made her debut as the voice of the character Nozomi Tojo from the Love Live! School idol project franchise. Since then, she has voiced roles in such anime as Nyuru Nyuru!! Kakusen-kun 2-ki (Nyururin), Million Doll (Sūko), and Rilu Rilu Fairilu ~Yōsei no Door~ (Rose). Apart from her participation in numerous Love Live! singles as part of the franchise's nine-girl μ's idol group unit, she has also released four singles as part of the "Please&Secret" duo unit (fellow Love Live! voice actress Pile is her partner in the unit).
