She turned professional in 2000. Her first successful audition was with the I've Sound a team of producers using the talents of various female vocalists for their productions - best recognized for their many ren'ai (romance) & adult adventure sim game soundtracks. Since then, KOTOKO has performed opening & ending themes for a few anime and has gained significant recognition from her two I've Sound related album releases. Her second album, "Glass No Kaze," released in June 2005 has been praised within multiple online communities. On October 13 2005, she released her 4th MAXI SINGLE, which featured a song from the Glass No Kaze (Garasu no Kaze) album, 「421 -a will-」, with a new song called 「Shuusou/Akisou 秋爽 (The Refreshing Autumn Breeze)」.

Although not listed on her official Geneon website, KOTOKO has actually released 5 albums. The first one, Sora wo Tobetara, was released in 2000. Many of the tracks on this album were later re-recorded for her 1st I've Sound album, 羽-hane (and attributed as her 1st album). The second and third albums are listed as I've Girls Compilations albums, which are listed as Lament (Fourth Album) and Collective (Sixth Album).

KOTOKO's first official performance in North America was her highly successful U.S. concert debut at Anime Expo 2005, followed soon after by the KOTOKO LAX Tour. A little-known fact is that KOTOKO's music has been influenced by musicians like Björk. Everyday life, however, speaks volumes in what inspires her writing. Now that her self-composed hybrid of pop & techno beats - sometimes pop - have crossed the Pacific, KOTOKO's lyrics have elevated her presence among thousands of North American J-Pop/anime fans.

Trivia

According to KOTOKO's panel at Anime Expo 2005, KOTOKO originally performed Chi ni Kaeru at her first live tour in 2004. Interestingly enough, the Geneon production staff were also looking for a theme song for their current production of Starship Operators (SSO) and were informed of KOTOKO's live tour. The Geneon staff attended KOTOKO's concert and immediately requested that KOTOKO allow them to use Chi ni Kaeru as the Ending Theme to SSO.


The version of Chi ni Kaeru used in SSO is an orchestral remix of the original concert version, hence the name "Chi ni Kaeru ~On the Earth~". As people may or may not know, KOTOKO is an excellent lyricist and most of her drafts are accepted on the first try. Her lyrics for Radiance was one such example. Why KOTOKO did not perform Radiance is more of a production/consumer preference issue. Kazuya Takase probably felt that Kawada Mami (MAMI) was better suited to the task and this isn't the first time something similar to this happened. The "I've Girls Compilation Album Vol 4 - Lament" demonstrates this issue with the production of LAMENT. Originally, KOTOKO was tasked with writing the lyrics and MAMI was tasked with singing it but Kazuya requested that KOTOKO give the song a demonstration run. KOTOKO performed the prototype LAMENT and that recording was what Kazuya decided to use in the 4th Album.
