Nitro Mega Prayer!
I'd be super happy if they were a guest (in 2010, I suppose).

Fanime needs moar jazz.

Paris Match, JiLL-Decoy association, or Orange Pekoe, please.


Haha, I know, none of those will really draw a crowd in to Fanime, but we need to expand on genres. D:


Also, Guitar Vader. We deserve them, since they never got to perform before.

Post by: PyronIkari on May 12, 2009, 02:31:53 PM
Go! Go! 7188 appears in the bay all the time, no point in having them at the con.

But for a real suggestion PornoGraffiti still hasn't come to the US. Not only have they done numerous anime, and currently the newest Bleach Movie theme song, but they have a long history of really good music. They perform AMAZINGLY live as well. Every concert they do is extremely high energy and entertaining. I don't know how well it will translate, but if you've ever seen/heard a blink 182 show... it's like that. Where they add in a lot of extra stuff, talk to the audience and just make the time really enjoyable, over playing a few songs, and then leaving.

They're not rock enough to call rock, and not pop in the slightest.

I don’t know how possible it would be to get the following. Maybe someone that has better insight to music industry in Japan can comment on these artist selections.

I’d love to see Miliyah Kato at musicfest. 20-Cry is an amazing song and that’s just for starters and one of her more recent tracks

Crystal Kay has US roots so, perhaps getting her would not be too much of a stretch?

Namie Amuro is also on my list but I’m pretty sure that one is impossible.

Anna Tsuchiya was at AX in 2k7 so…

Hitomi Shimatani (prob impossible unless someone is in good with Avex Trax)

And as with all other “what artists do you want” threads I’ll say my usual picks…
BOA, M-Flo, Three Nation and Chemistry

Oh I wish.  But if Porno Graffiti ever came to Fanime, I would seriously wait in line forever.  If Fanime could grant my wishes, it would be to have the band come.  I think they would be great for both rock and pop fans.

Also, I think it would be really cool if a band like OGRE YOU A**HOLE or Number Girl came.  It's time to give some indie fans some cool bands to check out :3.  Also, Glacier, xTRiPx, or (like this could ever happen) Acid Black Cherry would be pretty cool.

Want to add Girl Next Door (http://avexnet.jp/id/girln/index.html) to my wishlist.

Girl Next Door is like, the most generic late 90's style AVEX band ever. Having listened to a lot of AVEX stuff in the 90's, I can't stand them. Atleast with cookie cutter pop idols in the US, they each have a unique part about them, but Girl Next Door is just so generic that they have no appeal at all to me.

Bump of Chicken really needs to come to the US. They'd fit in at a convention, seeing that all of them are super nerds.

Those are the two bands that I think I will actually push Fanime to attempt to get... Bump of Chicken and Porno Graffiti. You hear them Julia!

i want to see GACTK or Yoshiki or some big stars! mana went to anime expo so he might want to come to fanime!

we should also try to get johnnies too! like KAT-TUN or NEWS! they sang the one piece thig so it's anime related!

Momoi should come back for sure, even if you have never heard of her, her lives are SO AMAZING and everyone sang and danced. She even ran arround the auditorium. Not to mention shes a very sweet woman who loves to be around people c:


Also Plastic Tree would make my year if they came to Fanimecon, Just to be in the same room with Arimura Ryutaro would be amazing they have done Anime Op's as well

I think that there's a large percentage that enjoy those genres that are more vocal on the boards. Myself, I tend to like jpop and hip hop more than jrock/vkei but I don't really speak out that much on the forums. I just read.  :D

But we'll definitely keep everyone's requests in mind as we work on getting our next musical guest. :D So keep those suggestions coming!

I think m-flo is currently on hiatus as Verbal and Taku are working on side projects, Verbal with Teriyaki Boyz and Taku with Ravex.  But we'll see! :D

Hitomi Shimatani (prob impossible unless someone is in good with Avex Trax)
I think she'd be great in concert. Weren't FanimeCon's biggest musical acts from the last three years all signed with Avex? I like almost all Avex artists that did songs for Inu Yasha: Dream (DRM), ELT, ...

I've also been converted to the "Halko Momoi, please come back" crowd.

I would love to see either IIMIX Delta/TWO-MIX, ALI PROJECT, Aural Vampire, Ayabie, the brilliant green, D'espairsRay, DuelJewel (bring them back!), KOTOKO, mothercoat (bring them back!), T.M.Revolution, Tommy February6/Heavenly6, Vidoll, Yuki Kajiura...

Maybe GPKISM but considering the guitarist of that band was the guitarist of BLOOD and the band kind of got kicked out of Fanime years back... probably not.

More like 2PM would be weird to get since currently they went down to 6 members (Jaebeom controversy) D: <3

Girls Gen's genie is so catchy *3* I like gee too! and as for SuJu more like GET SUPER JUNIOR-M (so I can salivate over Kyuhun)


I always say Plastic Tree D: you guys should totally bring them also, I suggest DBSK/TVXQ/Tohoshinki they are so amazing and their song Mirotic (Jumon in JP) is very popular they have high energy performances and not to mention very good looking *3* they sing songs in both Japanese and Korean so a bit of both for those who want Korean music and J music

2 P.M. --- Just do it...again Korean
Super Junior - If you don't think the Sorry, Sorry Dance Video is cool....you suck.


Go go Korean music =p?

More like 2PM would be weird to get since currently they went down to 6 members (Jaebeom controversy) D: <3

Girls Gen's genie is so catchy *3* I like gee too! and as for SuJu more like GET SUPER JUNIOR-M (so I can salivate over Kyuhun)


I always say Plastic Tree D: you guys should totally bring them also, I suggest DBSK/TVXQ/Tohoshinki they are so amazing and their song Mirotic (Jumon in JP) is very popular they have high energy performances and not to mention very good looking *3* they sing songs in both Japanese and Korean so a bit of both for those who want Korean music and J music


As much as I adore Korean music, we're currently only looking at artists in Japan.

At the moment, TVXQ has suspended activities due to the court case involving 3 of the 5 members.  :(


But keep those suggestions coming! The MusicFest staff and I do look at your suggestions of whom you want to see at FanimeCon.

Their stuff has been used in anime and games, so they're relevant. Plus, they have enough of a fanbase to bring people from all over to see them. Hell, some of their fans in Japan would be sure to come along to SJ to see them perform here.

Some funny news I just heard about The Pillows. They were offered to play a concert with Oasis. They declined... and their reasoning was that, it would make bigger news if they declined than if they accepted it. AWESOME!

As much as I would love love LOVEE for Arashi to be at MusicFest, they're scheduled to do a drama in the springtime staring all five of them, sooooo that might be difficult.

Not to mention they're beyond super popular that they'd probably cost more than what we spend to run the entire convention.

I really like SONOMI and think that she'd be fun to watch. Plus, it would ass more genres. We have to have R&B fans at the con...right?




...Though, I admit that I would probably go see Buono! if they came. x3 Not a fan of their kind of pop, but their music is really catchy, the girls are really cute, and they would be a lot of fun to watch.

Post by: iKuraudo on December 05, 2009, 08:44:30 AM
As much as I am up for most of the other suggestions posted.
I'll love to add some more.

I'd like to suggest Gackt and here is my reasons.
a) He's popular in California, B) He made an appearance back in 2007 for Anime Expo and it would not hurt to invite him for Fanime.
Since, Fanime is just a wondeful con al the way around. C) I want to see him come to Fanime so bad, since I missed my chance to go to Anime Expo in 2007 due to a severe illness I had that year. Not only that, he's very active and has sung for many games/Anime alone and I can picture him coming. :3

Another suggestion is Mana or The GazettE:
I am a fan of both as well, I heard Mana recently went to Anime Expo last year and I have yet to see a GazettE Concert (Uruha is my favorite band member)
I can also picture them coming to a con like Fanime.

Other than that,
It would be cool to bring back An Cafe, since I really got into them after watching various performances of Snow Scene and I missed the concert in 2008, due to exhaustion.

This is what I can suggest for now and will post again if I can come up with others. :3

I think rotating between genres of Japanese music would be really good.

An Cafe was Oshare Kei/J-Popness, last year's guess (O_O; her name escapes me..Moi?somethingsomething?) was J-Popness and Anime/Otaku-y, and I was hoping this year could be a little rougher around the edges. /cough Jrock.

- girugamesh (because they rock, hard)

I'd also like to request:

Perfume
Capsule (seems more likely because it's just Yasutaka and Toshiko)
Yuya Matsushita (r&b/urban pop, played Sebastian in the Kuroshitsuji musical)
Soil & "Pimp" Sessions (crazy club jazz band)
Lotus Juice
Tokyo Jihen or Shiina Ringo

I'd request Gackt, but since he likes to go all out, I think he'd need at least a year in advance, haha.

Besides, he's not even considered a musician anymore despite releasing songs occasionally (and December Love song like 149823985325 times). He's a TV personality now.

Probably true about the money thing, since some of the expenses often come from his own pocket.

Who did you hear that from? His 10 year anniversary was last year, so he released 4 singles just for that...His latest album, Re:born,  came out just last month, followed by a new single, Setsugekka. He also did a soundtrack for a pachinko game called Gladiator. The soundtrack used older songs, but many of them were new recordings. Of course, this does not include all the Kamen Rider singles...
Haha, I suppose you were joking, and I just happened to fall into the trap? XD

Anyway, back on topic, I'd really like to push for Capsule this year. I noticed there are others in the forum who have requested them too, and although I'm not sure exactly how many of the attendees are into electropop, I think it'd be a fun show.

Hear what from? I said he still releases stuff, but in general he's not viewed as a musician half as much as he's viewed as a TV personality now. I'm assuming you mean "who did I hear that he's more of a TV personality from", and I would say, no one and everyone... because that's what he is. He's on Variety shows 5 times a week, and it's just to be there as a guest, in the same way people like Hoshino Aki and Yuko Ogura are (because they really can't be considered gravure idols anymore, despite still doing some gravure stuff). The general populace knows them for being TV personalities more so than they are for their music/modeling stuff now.

I like Capsule and all, but have they done anything even remotely related to anime?

Hm...I wouldn't go as far as to say that. Yes, he's popular on t.v. because he's entertaining in general, to fans and non-fans alike, and he says and does random and funny things. Those that are fans watch him because they follow his music, and those that aren't watch him because he's simply entertaining. Being on t.v. ≠ "not working on music". You can go to the studio for a few hours in the day time, and go to a television studio at night. Many musicians do this, and they may even go on t.v. shows when touring. As I said before, he's been working on a lot of tracks recently in addition to doing his RR2 Tour, so he has a lot of reasons to promote himself on t.v., as well as the fact that his 36th single came out just last month.  As for the gravure idols (former or not), we all know why they're there, haha. Then again, if a gravure idol wants to quit gravure and not go in the *other* direction, it's probably a good idea to get herself on t.v. or get into acting if she wants to stay relevant.

Capsule doesn't have an anime relation unless you count their 3 animated PV's by Momose Yoshiyuki (of Studio Kajino), but they do have one to manga. They did the first soundtrack for the Drama adaptation of Shinobu Kaitani's Liar Game manga, and they are also doing the soundtrack for the show's second season. However, considering that we've had previous guests such as Kamijo, Mothercoat, Karma Shenjing, and Blood, I don't think the fact that they don't have (well known) anime ties will completely diminish one's interest.

Peelander-Z would be an awesome addition to the line up. They are this Japanese punk rock band from NYC heavily influenced by Power Rangers. If you haven't heard of them, here is the video for the song Mad Tiger.

The Gazette would be awesome if possible. Their lives are always full of energy and intense rock. Definitely a good example of VK too  ;)

Oh joy! So, then, it's just a matter of who get's to the front of the line first...

I've said this before and I'll say it again.
SuG (still indie... shouldn't be too hard >.< in my mind anyway)
UVERworld
Hitomi Takahashi
Back-on
Sowelu
Utada Hikaru
the GazettE

XP I'm just too hopeful... but, I will love fanime FOREVER if any of those artist showed up. Plus, I'll die.

I have never attended any of the Musicfests in my 6 years of going to Fanime, (mostly because I was under the impression that the only bands that get booked are visual kei, and it's not really my thing), but I would definitely, definitely be in line for these people:

There are a BUNCH of awesome bands to choose from, but I think SuG would be the best idea.

Both LM.C and SuG have somes on REBORN! and now they're both in the same company too. Also, the bright look and appearances is a plus ^^

w-inds isn't a bad idea either, but I think more people prefer SuG more.

Jam Project did go to Otakon, I'll tell you right now though they're out of Fanime's budget. Jam Project is like 20 people to bring, and Otakon spent the majority of their entire guest budget only on them. Won't get into the details, but seriously, there's no way Fanime can afford them.
