Manish (マニッシュ Manisshu) were a Japanese power-pop band formed in 1992 by vocalist and lyricist, Misuzu Takahashi and composer and keyboardist, Mari Nishimoto. The band's name comes from spelling member name MA(ri)NISH(imoto). Manish disbanded in 1998.

Biography[edit | edit source]

In early 1992, Misuzu and Mari were part of the Japanese idol group "DALI" who debuted with their only single "Moonlight Densetsu", which was used as opening theme for anime television series Sailor Moon.[1] Soon after release of single, the group has disbanded.

During the same year in December, Misuzu and Mari formed the band and debuted with single Koibito to Sakebenai (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Unicode data' not found.). Their second single, Koe ni Naranaihodo ni Itoshii (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Unicode data' not found.) was written by vocalist and lyricist of Japanese rock band Wands, Uesugi Show which he later self-covered in their studio album Little Bit. This became one of their earlier hits and first single awared by RIAJ with Golden Disk.

Sunao no Mama ni Kiss Shiyou (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Unicode data' not found.) was written by popular singer-songwriter Maki Ohguro, who later wrote several other songs and participated in recording production as a backing vocalist. Some fans refer to them as the "female version" of Japanese hard-rock band B'z due to their similar power-pop melody in theirs songs and having same musical producer, Masao Akashi.

In 1995, their single Kirameku Toki ni Torawarete (Lua error in package.lua at line 80: module 'Module:Unicode data' not found.) was used as third ending theme for the anime television series Slam Dunk.[2][3] The single has been awarded by RIAJ with platinum disk.

As one of the rare Being Inc. artist, they've made multiple media appearances on Music Station.[4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15]

In 1998 after releasing their compilation album Manish Best -Escalation-, they disbanded.[16] In 2002, during the release of "complete at the being studio" compilation album series, the album includes two unreleased songs from their career which were exclusively added in the album. According to the liner notes, the songs were previously recorded during production of their second studio album Individual.[17]
