Shion Miyawaki (宮脇詩音) is a Japanese pop singer under the label Rhythm Zone along with fellow rival, classmate and friend Seara Kojo.

Biography[edit]

At the age of 12, Shion was selected to go to the Avex Artist Academy. After 4 years of long-term lessons, she graduated with classmate Seara Kojo.[1]

They were signed under the label Rhythm Zone and became the project The Rival.[2] They both released a single, Shions was called BOY and Searas was called JOY. Both leading songs had the same melody, only a different arrangement. Both singles were released on the same day but failed reaching the top 100 on the Oricon chart.

After their first single they both released a 1000 copied limited single. The one selling her copies the fastest would be the first one re-signed on their label and would be the first one to release new material. Shion won this competition selling her single Shinin' Star a couple of weeks before Seara and so she started recording her mini-debut album Dear. Because they both out sold their single they got their own Official websites.

Shion now writes a cellphone story named KoiUta. This is a story about Shions experience with love. On 21 April 2009, Shions official website presented a new arranged version of Shinin' Star that would be available for online download on mu-mo. On 17 June the official website released a new song named Everything is you -MAKAI original mix- for the cellphone.[3] CD Japan listed a new mini-album from Shion Miyawaki named Love Songs – Koi Uta to be released on 2 September.[4] On 17 July 2009, the second mini-album was confirmed Shions official website. The mini-album contained songs in which she sang about her experience that were told in KoiUta.[5]

In year 2016, her songs 'Kaketa Tsuki' and 'Mata Kimi ni Aeru Hi' are used as the Assassination Classroom: Second Season first and second ending songs respectively.
