February 4, 2021 – Singing Cosplayer Hikari is a cosplayer from Japan, who sings anime songs in anime cosplay made her debut on New Year’s Day on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter.
Cosplayers are people who prepare and dress up in hair, makeup, and costumes to resemble anime and game characters. Currently, there are cosplayers not only in Japan but also all over the world, and many of them are influencers with a large number of followers on their social media.
On the other hand, there are many popular cover singers on video sites such as YouTube and TikTok, and among the songs they sing, anime songs have become very popular.
Thus, while cosplayers and cover singers singing anime songs were popular at anime festivals and social media around the world respectively. Singing Cosplayer Hikari has debuted as a rare individual who both cosplayers and sings all by herself.
She has been busy uploading her cover song videos (with cosplay ideas from popular Anime, Game, and Vocaloid characters). She finished the 1st season with the Evangelion themes on the 22nd of January and has now started the 2nd season from the 23rd of January.
When Hikari uploaded her 1st season her cover song videos got so much attention.
‘A Cruel Angel’s Thesis’ has 200,000 views in the English version and 270,000 views on the Japanese version. And ’Shuuketsuno Sonoe’ has a huge amount of 630,000 views in 5 days and a total of 1,100,000 views until the end of uploading on the 22nd of January.
From the 1st of February Hikari will distribute ‘A Cruel Angel’s Thesis’ and ‘Soul’s Refrain’ on Spotify, Apple Music, and YouTube Music, etc. Many fans who are missing Hikari’s voice on her cover songs can hear her again!
Her great success on YouTube growth all started in Indonesia. Hikari commented on her video in English and Indonesian. Indonesian people loved her Indonesian even though it is far from perfect. Many commented that she sounds so cute and loved watching her. She has many Indonesian fans since 60% of viewers are from Indonesia. Because of this Hikari has started to learn Indonesian and she has made new comments in Indonesian on various social media for the 2nd season from the 24th of January.
Hikari has just made her debut this New Year’s Day and she has never had any experience before as a music artist or as a cosplayer. She is working at an Anime oriented company in Japan and her role is PR for overseas. She uploads various content in many foreign languages including English, Thai, and Traditional Chinese. She also sends out a press release to overseas media, so she is familiar with communicating in different languages using translation software. This is the main reason she is good at commenting on her social media using many languages. She was asked to have an interview in English recently but she has never studied abroad. She is studying English with TOEIC now and she is a total beginner at Indonesian.
TikToker Asianz Dancers made a dance video on TikTok and Instagram collaborating with Hikari’s cover song ‘A Cruel Angel’s Thesis.’
The video went viral first in Indonesia then moved to India as well. Her YouTube videos are viewed most in Indonesia and India is second.
TikToker Asianz Dancers is a performing group with 1,300,000 followers on their social media. They are especially popular in Saudi Arabia and India.
Perhaps this is because Indians watched her YouTube singing videos after she collaborated with Asianz Dancers, which has many Indian followers. Furthermore, the fact that the lyrics of Evangelion’s cover song videos have Hindi subtitles probably increased the number of Indian users. As the number of Indian users increased and she received requests for comments from Indians on Facebook, she also started posting in Hindi on Facebook, using translation software. She has not yet started lessons in Hindi, as she has in Indonesian, but I hope you will comment a lot on her social media in English or Hindi.
Hikari is slowly gaining recognition by Japanese fans with the cover song ‘Shuuketsuno Sonoe’ which gained 630,000 views in just 5 days. But her views in Japan are only 2.5 %. The majority, 97.5%, of the views are from outside of Japan. She is becoming an international performer even though she can’t believe this yet. Her fans enjoy her cosplay which differs every time and is beautiful and cute. They mentioned that her voice is amazing and they enjoyed the cover song from the popular anime and Vocaloid. It’s been only 1 month since she made her debut but there is a buzz about her in the world and on social media in many countries. Please keep watching Singing Cosplayer Hikari’s next steps!
