Stargazing: Day by Day - Toyama Nao

Finally the fog clears out of the city and I felt the loving gaze of the sun once more. Bathed in joyful light, I stepped outside early today for a walk while listening to today's star, Toyama Nao.

'Day By Day' marks the start of Toyama's solo music career, as I personally feel it's the most fitting song to her seiyu style on her very first solo album release. It's filled with happy energy, catchy melodies and the lovingly recognizable vocals from Toyama herself. She has an excellent vocal talent and I hope this is a sign of more great songs to come.

As for now, we can be thankful for moments in the sun and for Toyama Nao's contributions to Japanese pop culture. I know I'm certainly thankful for those two things.
