AM2 Adds Visual-kei Artists SADIE to Concert List

The Southern California anime convention known as AM2 continues to roll out its guest list and the next addition to their concert highlights is none other than the visual-kei band, SADIE.

SADIE, composed of Mao on Vocals, Mizuki on Guitar, Tsurugi also on Guitar, Aki on Bass Guitar, and Kei on drums. As with most visual-kei bands, the emphasis is all in the artistry of the performance and the rock sound. For the purpose of currying interest with anime fans, they have not yet done any music for anime, so this concert should strictly be for those curious about visual-kei or fans who enjoy SADIE’s rock sound and elaborate showmanship.

Kalafina Named as Guest of Honor for Anime Expo

Anime Expo’s first major concert announcement has surfaced. On July 2, 2011, the trio Kalafina will be performing at Anime Expo in Los Angeles.

For fans who don’t know, Kalafina is a trio of singers. This group was initially created to sing the theme songs for the Kara no Kyoukai movies, but their popularity remained so strong that they’ve continued on to this day. All of their music is composed by Yuki Kajiura and includes such hits as Magia, the ending theme to Puella Magi Madoka Magica as well as Sora no Woto’s opening theme, Hikari no Senritsu.

Needless to say, this announcement brings up a lot of excitement and here’s hoping that Yuki Kajiura will also make an appearance!

K-ON! Concert Date Set for February 2011

With all the popularity and success that the K-ON! anime series seems to have garnered through its two seasons of airing, it only makes sense to fire off a concert, this time, to extend coverage to the second season of K-ON!. So with that in mind, the official website has announced a second K-ON! live concert to be held in February of 2011.

Once again, it’s expected that the voice actresses who portray the characters in the anime will be practicing on their instruments so that they can deliver with what they did for their first concert. More details are bound to come towards the end of November, so stay tuned for all that!

Minori Chihara to Attend, Perform at NYAF

Bandai has announced that singer and voice actress Minori Chihara will be attending New York’s Anime Festival as a part of a promotional campaign for the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie. In addition to doing the usual rounds of fan panels and signings, she will also be performing live in concert.

If concerts are what you’re looking for, there’s a lot of material that Chihara can cover since she sings the ending theme to the Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya movie as well as the really catchy opening sequence to Ga-Rei Zero titled “Paradise Lost.” The character song “Yuki, Muon, Madobe Nite,” is also an enjoyable piece, so don’t be surprised if that pops up either.

Given her relative prominence, seats might be in short supply. NYAF will be taken reservations for seats starting July 15 so check out their website around that date if you want to get a spot.
