“Singers of death” Starmarie have released Spell Of The Book, another trademark “dark fantasy” themed track, for free listening.
Their “hard” sound appeals to the aural senses, but Starmarie shines with their lyrics.
The lyrics are structured like a so-called “book”, beginning with a synopsis, running through the first through final chapters, and concluding with an epilogue.
Starmarie‘s new single Hime wa Rankiryuu Goikkou-sama (姫は乱気流☆御一行様) will be on sale on April 20th.
It is the ending theme for the anime Onigiri (鬼斬) which will start airing on Tokyo MX on April 6th.

January 30th and 31st marked Starmarie’s 7th live in Taiwan. They performed most recently at Fancy Frontier Cosplay Convention at Taipei Expo Park.
Most notably, guest of honor Taiwan’s newly elected president, Tsai Ing-wen, was thrilled by Nakane Monya initiating conversation in Chinese. « You’re an idol from Japan? ».
