AM2, the Southern California anime convention set to take place from July 1-3 has already started putting together their musical guest lineups. Of the major guests to be announced, the first major announcement has been for the duo of Kanon Wakeshima and An Cafe’s Kanon to perform together.
Needless to say, for anime fans, this should bring a lot of delight. Kanon Wakeshima is known for her cello skills often performed with a gothic lolita sound in mind. She has been notable for being the artist for such works as Vampire Knight’s ending theme, “Still Doll.”
The other Kanon, a bassist for the band An Cafe, will be performing with her. This Kanon brings a legendary Akiba-kei Otaku male sound to the concert. This combination isn’t a huge mind-blower as both did work on the Shiki anime opening theme, “Calendula Requiem.”
