Before she made her solo debut, ReoNA first lent her voice to Kanzaki Elza, a character featured in the TV anime series Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online which aired in 2018. She continued to release songs with the pseudonym “Kanzaki Elza starring ReoNa” under which she topped digital music charts in Japan.
It was revealed back in April that Kanzaki Elza starring ReoNa will release a new single entitled Prologue on June 26, 2019. The CD artwork has been unveiled. It is drawn by Kouhaku Kuroboshi, the illustrator for the ongoing light novel series Sword Art Online Alternative Gun Gale Online.
The cases of First Press Limited Edition copies of the single will feature this artwork and will also include a short story by Keiichi Sigsawa, the author of Gun Gale Online.
ReoNa will perform a special one-night-only concert for 550 people at CLUB CITTA’ in Kawasaki on July 25. The concert is titled Kanzaki Elza starring ReoNa x ReoNa Special Live “Re:AVATAR” and is a sequel to last year’s show held at Akasaka Blitz. To attend this special show, fans must purchase a copy of Prologue and apply with the application ticket included with the new single.
It has also been announced that ReoNa will release a new single under her main stage name too. Titled Null, the single will be released in Japan on August 28, 2019. It will also include the track Kaibutsu no Shi, the first original song ReoNa ever released and has been singing since her solo debut.
ReoNa will embark on a 6-date Japan tour entitled ReoNa Live Tour 2019 “Colorless” starting on September 21. She will also headline Zepp Tokyo for the first time on October 20 for her concert ReoNa ONE-MAN Live “Birth 2019”.
Fans who pre-order both Prologue and Null at select stores in Japan this summer will be able to sign up for pre-sale tickets to ReoNa’s upcoming shows.
