Sayuri is a 21-year-old 2.5D-parallel singer/songwriter who strums her acoustic guitar as shesings, as “Sanketsu-girl” (hypoxia girl) - an icon of the “Sanketsu generation” who feel the sense of inferiority and just the same amount of superiority to their own sensibility and values that are different from others.
Sayuri splits her habitat in 2D and 3D worlds. Her unique activities in the 2D world is centered on SNS and the Web, and the 3D world is based on live performances; the artist lives in the crossover area, i.e., the 2.5D world. Her lyrics resonates with the emotions of people in their teens and twenties who carry the sense of smothering on a daily basis in search of the way to live their own way and their own place; her voice naturally stays present to the listeners’ hearts, tenderly embraces their loneliness and sublimates it to hope. Thus this new-generation artist enjoys tremendous popularity mainly among people in their teens and twenties.
Sayuri made her major debut on August 26, 2015 with “Mikazuki”, the closing theme of Fuji TV’s Noitamina anime series Rampo Kitan: Game of Laplace!
