[LiSA Comment]

I’m delighted to know that so many people have received my best albums LiSA BEST –Day- and LiSA BEST –Way-, created from my seven years of being in this business.

I look forward to working even harder to make everyone’s “today” more fun with music and concerts.

Another happy “Day” has been added to our “Way” of living. Thank you so much.

Today is another great day!
