Pillows - Alt/rock - FLCL soundtrack

It really warms my heart to see so many people (on twitter) asking for them to come to Fanime. I was worried that people wouldn't know who they were in this newer generation of anime-watchers. I think that the announcement of FLCL 2 coming out next year might have revived some interest? The good news is that what may have been holding them back from touring in the US for years seems to have been resolved last year (a certain former guest bassist supposedly had some visa issues), meaning there might actually be a shot at getting them! They haven't been able to come here since 2011, so it'd be great to have them make their US comeback at Fanime.

I'd like to see Aquors from Love Live! Sunshine! They performed at 2016 AX as well :0

Since I attended their event at AX, I feel that I should clear up the fact that they did not perform there. It was only 6 of the 9 girls, and their event was mostly a "get to know us and the franchise" thing. No live singing or dancing was involved.

Regardless, I'd love to see them perform, too. I'm loving their music and the new season they're in.

Somewhat copy and pasted from last year's thread...

- Ohashi Ayaka. Seiyuu and singer who has done OPs and EDs. She recently released a full album. Here's a link to the official album preview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnd1dBC43Fs

- Uesaka Sumire. Seiyuu who has done OPs and EDs in addition to her career as a singer. Here is one of her songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRI2dNtVPis

- SEIYUU FROM THE IDOLM@STER GAMES. If you could get a group of them, it would be incredible. im@s has done hundreds of songs in various genres. The concert would be fun no matter what, and you will get a massive group of fans to attend. Here's a link to one of the many im@s song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNLjcSKXEuc

As always to the staff, thank you for reading and for your hard work!

I know this is a super late reply, but I second a few of these recommendations.

-Granrodeo (since the lead singer also voices Chuuya from BSD, it'd be a two-in-one)
-Asian Kung-fu Generation
-Goose House
-FLOW (again please)
-Babymetal
-Joe Hisaishi
-Eir Aoi (I would die to see Eir Aoi)
-GARNiDELiA
-Sukima Switch
-BRADIO
-7!!
-EGOIST
-OreSkaBand
-Aimer (I would die to see Aimer)
-Sambomaster
-Supercell
-Kana-boon
-Nana Mizuki (here's a BIG one, not a fan of hers, but know she'd be popular)
-PelleK (would be great, but me thinks it hard to get him all the way from Norway)

I tried to be as varying as I could with my list of suggestions (Bigger Names as well as Smaller Names) and varying with genre/style. I think any of these guests would definitely be awesome/amazing.

Granrodeo- Bungou Stray Dogs! <333 (Chuya :-*)
Title: Re: Guests I Want For MusicFest 2017!!!
Post by: KyraEnsui on December 07, 2016, 01:30:57 AM
Wow. There are some really big names on some of these lists. Mashiro Ayano is still new, but she has done other songs for animes like Fate/Stay and D.Gray Man Hallow. I don't mind seeing Granrodeo, but I read that Taniyama Kishio is afraid of flying though. ^^;;

Legit question though-- Will fans be willing to pay extra admission on top of your Fanime badge to see these people? I vaguely remember there was a thread before about not wanting Fanime to ever charge extra for events but I don't think some of these artists would be possible to get unless Fanime charged extra for tickets to see them.

For me, I don't mind paying extra to see any artists to come. If fans who attended AX and bought tickets on top of their badge for AniMatsuri concert, then we can too. It would be a cool thought to see the concert perform at SAP center that's not too far from the convention center(~about 1.0 mi).

Post by: Angelx624 on January 17, 2017, 08:44:46 PM
It looks like others are suggesting Granrodeo as well!! <3 (But dammit, if they do manage to be at Fanime I just might have to bring my Chuya cosplay...... >_< )

    Best attempt to organize a list with band name in bold, followed by genre and how they might be related to Fanime (or best known)
    • Pillows - Alt/rock - FLCL soundtrack
    • One ok Rock - Rock/metal - Ruroni Kenshin (live action) and Captain Harlock
    • Baby Metal - Rock/metal - No anime relation, but would be awesome
    • Perfume - J-pop electronic - No anime relation
    • Uverworld - Alt/rock - Blue Exorcist soundtrack + more
    • Utada Hikaru - J-pop - Kingdom Hearts + more
    • Rip Slyme - Hip-hop/rap - Gantz OP
    • Dragon Ash - Rock/Hip-hop/Reggae - Battle Royale movie song
    • Base Ball Bear - Rock/pop - Bakuman, Gintama + more
    • Boom Boom Satelites - Electronic/pop - Kiznaiver OP + more
    • Porter Robinson - Electronic/dj - Anime and video game inspired show
    • Asian Kung Fu Generation - Alt/punk - Full Metal Alchemist song
    • Distant Worlds Symphony - Orchestra - Final Fantasy music performed with a full orchestra
    • Kreva - Hip-hop/rap - I just like him haha
    • M-flo - Hip-hop/pop - Appleseed: ex-machina

    A lot of these are pretty unrealistic, but I would do everything in my power to attend Fanime if any one of these artists were performing.

    A few of the more 'unique' ones are highlighted in red because they might bring a different feel to Fanime and broaden the fan base.

I would LOOOOOOOVE if Porter Robinson (and Madeon) could perform, and while they are just wrapping up the SHELTER tour (which if any of you for some reason have not seen the short film/music video I implore you to), Porter Robinson is a pretty active member in the anime community (as well as DDR/Stepmania) and used to perform at AX so its not unreasonable to think that he might.

We'd love to request ONE OK ROCK (rock/pop/emo)!

On a side note, I play with a local San Jose/San Francisco band called Coast in the Clouds, and we want to open for any act for Music Fest! We play original rock music with lyrics in both Japanese and English. We have an EP out and one music video out, and have played a lot of conventions in California. We also won various song writing contests in Japan, and get regular airplay in Japanese radio. We've been Fanime goers, with myself going since 8 years ago when I was in high school. We'd love to participate in Fanime Music Fest as the opening act, but only if you guys like our music!

Our music is also available on bandcamp, soundcloud, Spotify, Amazon, iTunes, and Google Play.

Our website: http://coastinthecloudsjp.weebly.com/
EP: https://coastintheclouds.bandcamp.com/album/re-start-2
Music Video: https://youtu.be/SIh9iyxaSQY

Thank you! Looking forward to Fanime 2017!

I would absolutely love it if my favourite J-Pop and English singer Nano http://en.nanonano.me/

I see a lot of good names put out for this thread. I hope that Fanime will support local bands as well, at the very least for an opening act. It will give those local bands some good attention since Music Fest brings in so many people every year, and honestly I can't see how it would hurt.

Worse case scenario, the crowd can just look forward to the main act. Best case scenario, the crowd discovers good, new music, along with the main act. This just happened to me with the recent ONE OK ROCk live in SF. The opening band was really good and I'm glad ONE OK ROCK picked them. So please Fanime, hear me out and give the locals a chance!

I gotta put my vote for ONE OK ROCK! Considering they just played that SF show (which I missed so maybe Fanime is my chance?), Fanime doesn't seem too far off, right? A lot of people's suggestions were solid and I feel like I would love to see most of those acts (AKFG, Porter Robinson, etc.). They all have something interesting for us to hear! There seem to be a lot of different possibilities with Japanese acts coming to the states to perform more often these days. Could always see if there's Aoi Eir or any other well known Ani-song singer out there right now! Those get the crowds (and my interest).

I like this! I think it'd be nice to always give local bands a chance. If they are opening acts, then they don't need to take up a large time slot either. 30 minute sets just to warm up the main act and the crowd, and like LGstryker says, some people might find a way to find something awesome! I unfortunately wasn't able to catch ONE OK ROCK (even though I am in the area lol) but I think it's pretty awesome that they gave local bands a chance. Of course, ONE OK ROCK had jurisdiction themselves, so there is quality control in these! I had also seen a local band mentioned while in this thread. I gave them a listen and they fit the bill - it's relevant to our love for Japanese culture and it's interesting. So, I say consider Coast in the Clouds - why not?

This is who I would like to see for Musicfest or Stage Zero cause we definitely need more music related events. Plus FanimeCon also is a gaming con as well so might as well invite these bands to play Video Game Music for the con:

Super Soul Bros. FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/SuperSoulBros/?fref=ts
Mega Ran: FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/MegaRanMusic/?fref=ts
The Megas: FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/themegas/?fref=ts
Vic Viper: FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/vicviperband/?fref=ts
The Koopas: FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/thekoopas/?fref=ts
Bit Brigade: FB page: https://www.facebook.com/bitbrigade/?fref=ts
Kirby's Dream Band: FB Page: https://www.facebook.com/kirbysdreamband/?fref=ts

MusicFest and FanimeCon need music variety since there has not been any good music guests. Hopefully this will fill the void. Trust me, do check these bands out. and as for Mega Ran, HE SHOULD BE A GUEST OF HONOR for Fanime. He's awesome, down to earth, knows his stuff and his raps coverning from mega man to FF7 are hella dope. seriously.

I would really love for TOTALFAT or SPYAIR to come to Fanime!!

TOTALFAT are a punk band and are very energetic! They've done an ending theme song for naruto shippuden. Would be awesome to see them perform! And the guys seem very awesome too!!

SPYAIR has done a couple of anime songs for gintama, gundum, bleach, haikyu etc! I saw them in japan and would love to see them live again!
