Biography

  • Born

  • Born In

    Sagamihara, Kanagawa, Japan

Kumi Miyasato (宮里久美, Miyasato Kumi) is a Japanese pop singer and seiyu (anime voice actor) who was popular in her native Japan in the mid-to-late 1980s.
Not much is known about Kumi Miyasato. She landed the role of Eve in "Megazone 23" at the young age of 16 and was signed to Victor Records and released a total of 5 albums. She made various concert and radio appearances. Everything else is a mystery (including whether she is still alive or not)

There are 2 unconfirmed stories as to why she stopped performing: By the end of the 1980s, her popularity had diminished considerably, and her contract with Victor Records was not renewed or she got married and retired from singing.

Kumi Miyasato provided the voice of the pivotal character, Eve Tokimatsuri, in the first two parts of the hit Original Animated Video series, "Megazone 23". Her character was a computer-simulated pop idol. "Megazone 23" Part 1 was the very second OAV in anime history and the very first to make a profit. It is said that this is largely due to Kumi's vocal performance (both spoken and sung), which is often called by its fans the highlight of the series.
Kumi recorded 5 songs for "Megazone 23". They are, in order of appearance:

Part 1:

Senaka Goshi ni Sentimental ("Sentimental Behind Our Backs" or "Sentimental Behind My Back", often incorrectly translated as "Sentimental Over the Shoulder")

Tomorrow Blues

Kaze no Lullabye ("The Wind's Lullabye" or "Lullabye of the Wind", also spelled "Kaze no Lullaby" and "Kaze no RARABAI")

Part 2:

Himitsu Kudasai ("Please Tell Me the Secret")

Lonely Sunset

To date, the first 2 parts of "Megazone 23" are, apparently, Kumi's only acting credits.
