She specializes in Akihabara style performance, a genre that emphasizes the cute look of Japanese pop-culture with the hip appeal of Japanese animation. As a unique cultural phenomenon, these Akihabara idols have attracted an enthusiastic fan following all over Japan. As interest in Japanese entertainment grows among the American youth, Reni offers the most fun and authentic Japanese pop experience without ever having to travel to Tokyo. She is quickly winning over the hearts of many new local fans thanks to her pretty stage costumes, upbeat personality, and talented singing ability.
Reni was born in Japan and began her formal ballet training at the age of seven. Since then, she has been dancing nearly every day in styles ranging from Jazz and Hip Hop to "Nihon Buyo," traditional Japanese dance. Reni expanded her talents to the theatrical world by joining the well-known Japanese company "Seinenza," where she played an active role in both performing and directing.
In 2005, Reni won a major music contest in Tokyo, out of 1,000 participants. Her first CD was produced by Takahiro Yamautsuri, who composed music for one of the Pokemon movies. Her live performances in the major music clubs and show houses in Japan have grabbed the attention of a wide range of audiences. Her quality singing and powerful dancing in Akihabara style keeps them coming back for more. In 2008 she relocated to the U.S.A., started a monthly event, Japanese "Maid" Show and is quickly gaining a loyal fan base. Reni was recently invited as a guest performer to Krazy Cosplay Party organized by Japan Society.
