Biography[edit]

During the 1990s, Hiromi Sato sang and played keyboard as part of the indies band Satyagraha.[2][3] The band recorded only one album Park, before disbanding in 2000.[3][4] Sato made her solo singing debut in 2000 with the song "Shield", ending theme for the PC game Kanaria: Kono omoi o uta ni nosete by Front Wing.[5] In October 2001 she released her first major debut album, Looking for sign, a collection of game theme songs she had performed. She started performing theme songs for TV anime in 2003, where she performed the opening theme for the TV anime adaptation of Green Green, "Guri Guri", and the opening theme for Onegai Twins, "Second Flight", which was a duet with Kotoko. The "Second Flight" single reached number 15 on the Oricon charts, charting for 16 weeks.[6] She had her first voice-acting role in the 2005 TV anime Sousei no Aquarion as Rena Rune.

In May 2007, Sato started her own company S Inc., a talent management and music production agency.[1]
