Song Writers (Lyricists)



All Lyricists
The following people wrote lyrics for I-lulu:
  1. Kana Mizushima (水島  歌菜) - the lead vocalist of I-lulu. She (supposedly) wrote most of the lyrics for the group. I say "supposedly" because she's only been officially credited on 4 songs: "Futari de" (both versions), "Taiyou no Kasa", and "This way!!". The remaining songs never mentioned ANY lyricist, so I have to assume Kana wrote those as well.
  2. Masashi Kitani (木谷  雅) - he's the lead vocalist for sacra, which is another one of Dai Nagao's Area404 artists.
  3. Mio Aoyama (青山  弥央) - she's an Area404 lyricist, probably best known for her work with Amasia Landscape.
  4. Dai Nagao (長尾  大) - I assume he wrote the lyrics to "Trust". When that song was released, no lyricist, composer OR arranger was ever mentioned. So I can only assume that Dai Nagao did everything himself.
