Since 2003... A friend gave me a lot of anime songs, and I saw the cover of Hotchpotch. Maaya was very beautiful, and she was the singer of "Yakusoku wa Iranai" from Escaflowne. It was a great song, I enjoyed that song.

After that, I downloaded his entire discography, and liked it so much, that I bought all her cds. Today I am a big fan of Maaya! Oh yes, and my favorite Maaya song of all time is Yubiwa.

in 2004, I was just finding more infor about Tsubasa Chronicle on google and I randomly clicked on a link and it led to a page which was a review about Loop, its ending song, so I tried listening to the song...and then I got addicted. I still remember I got goosebump all over my body once the song started playing, it was just like magical, and that's the 1st song that got me into J-music. I kept playing that song days by days, and then I started finding more infor about her and then I know she sang almost the OST for Clamp' works.
until now even when i get distracted by other music genres like K-music or US/UK but I always end up going back listening to Maaya' songs. She has been and will forever be my ispiration
:heart: MAAYA SAKAMOTO :heart:

Oooh what an old thread that's been revived!

Getsuyou no Asa hooked you?! ahhh that song is so boring and depressing for me, I don't get it!

Yes! Audiogalaxy was so great! That's how I first got Maaya too...

This is my story too! Giant CCS fan, downloading all the music from the series I could find, came across Platina... loved it. At the time I was trying to get other songs by everyone who'd done music for CCS, but Maaya was the only one I could really find stuff for. I definitely used Audiogalaxy to download everything! That was 2000/2001...

And maaya is such a brilliant performer who could suited Kanno's various music colors with her wide vocal characteristics.

I didn't really care about the lyric, not until a few years later after i found several well-build fansites that have her lyric.. Only then i knew that not only the songs, but many of the lyric were also well made.
I FEEL EXACTLY THE SAME WAY! Maaya is amazing when coupled with Kanno. I'm more of a musician than a singer so I appreciate what Kanno has brought with Maaya =). I don't understand how she can make some random sounds into beautiful music.

OMG U WILL BURRRNNNN!!~

na, J/K. =)

I also feel that the song is depressing. But I also love it ;P. The things that I normally expect from Maaya are soulful songs like these.

I fell in love with "Yakusoku wa Iranai" while watching Escaflowne back in 2003. I just thought it was the most beautiful anime song I heard at that time, haha. I didn't care much about her voice acting back then, I was more into her singing career, but as years went by, I began to admire Maaya as a whole and today, I consider her as someone who I look up to :)

It all started in 2009, when I was 15, I had watched Arjuna and Cardcaptor Sakura, both Mameshiba and Platinum were amazing songs, so I started to listen to more and more xDDD

Now at school I use my maaya notebooks, one album per subject (0331 pamphlet based, translated into Spanish, and I added more things, such as PV screencaps in the back covers, singles information and special design for 15th Anniversary albums such as everywhere & YCCM)
Maybe you have seen all those images, but if you don't.. enjoy.
Here is the link (Photobucket Album)

The front covers are made of photographic paper, and the back covers are made of normal paper, I just stuck the paper into the notebook original cover and I cover it with plastic protector. I print the images with my inkjet printer xDD
