Daisuke Ono unveils details on “Up Stairs / Down Stairs” CDs

Japanese star seiyuu Daisuke Ono is releasing in September 2012, two albums titled Up stairs and Down stairs.

This will be the 4th album released by one of Japan’s most famous/prolific seiyuu. Born in Kōchi Prefecture, Japan in 1978, Daisuke Ono, best known among seiyuu or his fans as OnoD, has rose to fame with his role as the demonic butler in the 2008 anime “Kuroshitsuji” (Black Butler) that earned him an award on the 4th Seiyuu Awards in 2010 for Best Voice Actor.

Known for his natural deep and charming voice plus his cheerful personality, Daisuke Ono is a man with his hands full: he has two major radio shows going on: DGS (Dear Girl Stories) – with fellow seiyuu Kamiya Hiroshi and Dragon & Tiger – with fellow seiyuu Kondo Takayuki.

Has also founded the seiyuu supergroup “Project Daba” whose members have all been born in 1978. Tachibana Shinnosuke, Hino Satoshi, Fukuyama Jun, Majima Junji, Kondo Takayuki, and Suganuma Hisayoshi are the members together with OnoD. Ono-san also has a show called “Mag Net” focuses on everything related to manga and anime. Being a voice actor as well as a singer and radio host, Daisuke Ono is, without a doubt, one of the best entertainers in Japan with a talent beyond words.

So after this intro, let’s check the covers for each part of the album and the respective tracklists. We get to hear some songs already known to the fans, some hits like “Delight”, “Lunar Maria” or even “Netsuretsu ANSWER”. “Up stairs” won’t have any new songs so it’ll consist basically of a collection of the later singles that haven’t been featured in an album but “Down stairs” will feature two new songs which will be pretty interesting to listen to.

The album will be divided into two parts:

“Down Stairs”

Kiss Kiss Kiss from “UP STAIRS” and Monokuro no Nigi from “DOWN STAIRS”.

Lantis has uploaded on YouTube the previews for both promotional videos (PV’s) and we can say that we have two interesting sides of OnoD on this double album. The more dance-like vibe comes from “UP STAIRS” and the rockish vibe from “DOWN STAIRS”.

Previews of both CDs are out. Check them out in the video below!
