Ayano Mashiro's Weekend in Singapore in Photos


Anisong singer Ayano Mashiro was recently in Singapore for the inaugural CharaExpo anime convention on 20 and 21 June. We compiled a summary of the photos of her weekend in Singapore.

Despite her petite frame, the singer hailing from Hokkaido actually boasts a set of powerful vocals and is an extremely stunning performer on stage.

Departing for Singapore!

Apparently, the guests had some function near the building in the background. They took many pictures on Twitter.

A photo taken by the great Mel Kishida (see that building in the background again?)

Isn't she just so adorable! It sure seems like she enjoyed herself tremendously on our little sunny island. She's really amiable as both a person and a singer, and she likes to get close to her fans. We welcome her back to Singapore anytime!
