Konomi Suzuki, the musical artist behind the theme songs of several anime including No Game, No Life and Re:Zero, will make her full-fledged voice-acting debut as the heroine of a new television anime. The name of the heroine seen below is Rin.
The announcement was made via a teaser at the "Suzuki Konomi Birthday Live 2016 ~Cheers!!!~" concert at the Makuhari Messe event hall in Chiba on Saturday. The anime's title and broadcast schedule will be announced in the future. The anime's official website is at finis-anime.com, and the copyright notice on the site lists MAGES — Suzuki's current agency and the umbrella company of the developer behind such game and anime titles as Chaos;Head, Steins;Gate, and Robotics;Notes.
Suzuki became a professional anime song artist after winning Animax's fifth All-Japan Anison (anime song) Grand Prix singing contest in 2011. She has since performed songs for Dusk maiden of Amnesia, The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, WATAMOTE, Freezing Vibration, No Game, No Life, Lord Marksman and Vanadis, Absolute Duo, BBK/BRNK, Re:ZERO - Starting Life in Another World, and Ange Vierge. Before the upcoming new anime, Suzuki did play the minor role of a waitress in Dusk maiden of Amnesia.
