Today, on the same day as the release of her second EP “Forced Shutdown” in Japan, the official YouTube channel for voice actress/singer-songwriter Tomori Kusunoki (Setsuna Yuki in Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) posted a full music video for the EP’s title track.
While performing as a member of the voice actress unit Nijigasaki High School Idol Club, she made her major debut as a solo singer with her first EP “Hamidashimono” in August 2020, which ranked sixth in Oricon’s weekly album ranking. While she worked on three songs in her first EP, all of the four songs in her second EP were written/composed by herself.
She writes on Twitter, “With the support of so many people, I was able to successfully release my 2nd EP ‘Forced Shutdown’! Thank you very much! The only thing I can do now is to let you listen and enjoy. Please take good care of my precious songs.”
