Aww you beat me to creating a thread about her. Oh well, my fault for waiting too long.

I've heard of Kanon back in April when I started watching Vampire Knight and heard her song be the ED theme to the anime. I was instantly drawn to her unique style of fusing Gothic Lolita with classical.

I even blogger about her in this entry. I'll probably do a proper one for her in the near future.

For those that don't know her


OFFICIAL WEBSITE
http://www.kanonweb.jp/
She also does a lot of artwork. So instead of a usual blog, she has a picture diary which she posts some of her artwork on but she also has a picture gallery.

Her English Profile
and CDJapan did an interview with her not too long ago. You can read that HERE

Her Discography:

Tracklist
1. still doll
2. Kuroi Torikago (黒い鳥籠; Black Birdcage)
3. still doll ~Orgel Version~ (~オルゴールVersion~; Music Box)

Future Release:
Suna no Oshiro - November 12, 2008
Tracklist
1. Suna no Oshiro (砂のお城; Sand Castle)
2. skip turn step♪
3. Suna no Oshiro (instrumental ver.) (砂のお城)
4. skip turn step♪ (instrumental ver.)
5. Suna no Oshiro ~Orgel version~ (砂のお城 ~オルゴール・ヴァージョン~)

I definitely looking forward to her upcoming single Suna no Oshiro, the release date is getting closer now that October is almost over.

I know, and I'll be x50 more excited for when she announces an album Giggle
Kuroi Torikago is too amazing to be a b-side, I think it should have been a Kuroi Torikago single or at least a double A-side.
Kanon is too underrated.

Yay! Pretty pretty thread.

What do I think of Kanon Wakeshima? -points to set- That's what I think. She's so talented Giggle I absolutely love all of the songs she's released to far. They're so great. I've been listening to Suna no Oshiro on repeat recently, but I love all teh songs equally.

^ I think the title is misleading. That lady is really just interpreting Mana's hand movements. Kanon's not in the interview, she's actually being talked about.

@Koda
Thanks! Giggle

Thanks octocoffee, that makes much more sense since I saw her name in the questions and the girl didn't look like Kanon at all.

This was semi-recent but I believe it's already passed. Oh well, just thought I'd throw the link out there for anyone that's interested in what she's done lately.

Well put Ushee Love It'd be interesting to see how many styles an album, especially Kanon's, can span.
