Some months ago, news about LiSA performing in Manila, Philippines in June spread among Filipino anime fans. If I recall correctly, it would be the first time a Japanese anison singer would hold a concert on our land.
Titled “LiSA ~ANOTHER GREAT DAY in Manila~,” it was a dream-come-true for many, for sure. So here I am, trying to show how wonderful it was for both the singer herself and the fans who got to attend. Apparently, she promised to come back. There’s still hope for us who did not get to see and watch her perform!
What follows is my piss-poor attempt (once again) at translating Japanese to English. Please note that I’m not JLPT certified and this is mostly a product of personal amusement. But critiques/corrections are very welcome! In fact, I would love it if this attempt gets corrections. Maybe someone better than me can try translating the original content which is found in LiSA’s ameblo here and here. I do not own the photos and the original text. They’re all LiSA’s!
