I don't know if some awesome person made a Minori thread, but I highly doubt it.
Anywho, you may all know Chihara Minori as the voice actress of Nagato Yuki from Haruhi, but she actually has a music career! And a very good one too, her latest album "Contact" is supremely amazing and anyone who loves J-Pop should aquire it. I thought it was the best album of 2007, surpassing NIN (Because everyone knows Year Zero is the best album of 07 if you arent counting international stuff) But the reason I chose Contact over Year Zero is because Minori created such an amazing progressive J-Pop album that you don't usually hear to often in that genre, and it shined fantastically.
Anywho, she is awesome, Contact is a fantastic album. Get it.
She had one other album Heroine and she did a bunch of character CDs, most notably Nagato Yuki's Character CD.
Her best songs are:
Shinji no Tabi
Dears ～Yuruyakana Kiseki～
Natsu wo Wasuretara
Discuss the Goddess among men.
