Mami Kawada has had such a historic career, and she has made a name for herself by performing some very unforgettable AniSongs. However, the AniSong veteran is ready to hang up the mic and retire, as she announced her plans during the LisAni AniSong concert last 24 January.


While she was on stage during the event, she announced that she will be having her final concert on 21 May, titled  “MAMI KAWADA FINAL F∀N FESTIVAL “F”.” It will be held at the Tokyo Dome, a fitting place to end her illustrious career, and she will be having several big-name guests, which will include fripSide, KOTOKO, and Maon Kurosaki.

The singer-song writer will also be releasing her next single, “Contrail ~Kiseki~,”which is the OP song for the AOKANA: Four Rhythm Across the Blue anime, which is currently being aired in Japan. The single will be released on 28 January.

Mami Kawada has performed plenty of AniSongs in her career, so much so that she has been considered an AniSong icon already, performing OP and ED songs for anime like Shakugan no Shana, A Certain Magical Index, To Love-Ru Darkness, Please Teacher and Please Twins, and many more. As she is now announcing her retirement, we would like to wish Mami Kawada all the best, and thank you for the great songs!
