They decided to work together, and they have come a long way since then. Originally, angela was an independent band, performing in clubs and otherwise since 1993 and in 1999 they made their debut with the single memories, however this release went largely unnoticed. In 2002, they were signed by KING RECORDS after one of their representatives heard a song that Katsu had improvised from the ever-popular Zankoku na Tenshi no Thesis. After that, their debut single, Asu e no brilliant road became the cornerstone of success for angela. This was success that granted them several popular singles for the Uchuu no Stellvia and Sokyuu no Fafner anime series and a popular album, Sora no Koe -- success that granted them even a live concert in the United States at Otakon 2004 in Baltimore, Maryland. angela's newest album, "I/O", was released in November on King Records and is available. They are also known for the parapara dance routine which accompanies Asu e no brilliant road that "is very popular in Tokyo" according to angela. angela performed at Sakuracon 2005 in Seattle, Washington, and will be performing at CN Anime 2005 in Toronto, Ontario Their live concerts consist of a background layer of music, arranged by KATSU beforehand.
At the concert, atsuko performs a vocal track live, as KATSU performs a guitar track live. Therefore, the songs in all of their concerts are pre-determined to a greater extent than other bands.
