Title: Fanimecon '12 Musicfest, What band would you suggest?
Post by: kaizoku on May 16, 2011, 02:18:17 AM
I would love to see the Hatsune Miku concert come to the Bay Area.

LOL....You need to get that "fix" huh?
I would personally like to see a K-pop group or artist just to mix things up a bit. I'd would be nice to get "Brown Eyed Girls" for example but that's just one name i'm throwing out there ;)

If they're relevant to Japanese pop culture, it's possible~

MF has hosted artists/bands who have had absolutely no connection to anime (thinking back to con years 2003-2007), and the audiences have enjoyed them regardless.

On a serious point, a music guest that would actually be really good to have is Yui. I'm not the biggest fan of hers but she is a really good performer and has more than her fair share of anime songs.

And I'll also suggest Arashi. Hey, nobody's mentioned in the thread that it had to be possible. :B

Niiice, I second that. I don't adamantly listen to her, but the few albums I've listened to were pretty good.

seconding this so hard. it seems like it would be hard but it would be amazing

a really good possibility, though, is to bring mydjsobad out to have them do a show on friday or saturday night next year.

http://www.mydjsobad.com

they do a show called "Hardcore Synergy" every year at anime central with popular j-core artists like NO+CHIN and m-project. this year they even had kors k (from beatmania iidx and other bemani titles) come out and perform. it's an amazing show. mydjsobad had a booth at fanime 2010 selling cds and such. i'm not sure if eddie said that he got a booth for mydjsobad this year, but i hope so!

No booth this year, but he's coming. MyDjSoBad isn't the actual production of this, they're more just a contact with the DJs. But just to let you know in advance, suggesting them is kind of pointless. A lot of staff are actually personal friends of Eddie's and talks have been thrown around here and there. It's nice to show support though, but staff knows of the existance and Eddie+Nick know of Fanime. So if it happens it happens, if it doesn't it doesn't.

i know how it all works. i know eddie personally myself, also, via bemani and music gaming. i still hope and pray some day eddie can bring out the dudes for a show in norcal sometime, so i figured i'd plug it to show there's still a /lot/ of interest in seeing Hardcore Synergy Fanime Edition

Doesn't sound natural enough and too many high notes.

This guy is an old MMA& UFC  (mix marital arts& ultimate fight champ) fighter retired turned to music and entertainment. His videos on youtube all have over 1million views. He has done events in New york and done events in the states so im betting he would be willing to come to fanime.
Hes new to the Japanese music and no other con to my knowledge has gotten him yet.

I was thinking of 2PM...their Japanese debut single, Take Off, is the first ending for Blue Exorcist/Ao no Exorcist. I have also noticed that Japan is going through a heavy Hallyu Wave at this moment :/

2PM I know HAS performed in SF as well as a few other US cities as the opener for the Wonder Girls (a girl kpop group). Two of the members I think know pretty good English...I know one was literally scouted in LA at the Korean Music Festival. :/ I suppose it's a start.

Eddy knows very well about the dance budget situation.  The dance had ZERO budget for headliners. Any headliners or extra equipment (like the equipment in the 2nd room and the lighting for the stage) was paid for or provided by the heads of the dance (LOL, me).  Eddy was busy working the deal with ACEN and didn't get back to us in time to arrange a co-sponsorship deal for 2011, but we are already negotiating for 2012.

the kpop artists that have performed in the city get a significant amount of money to perform (probably exceeds fanime's budget)  the tickets for the events at mighty start at 50 (which is 5 less than a pre-reg fanime pass). the promoter makes money from a % of the bar, table commission, and sponsorships... none of which are replicable at fanime.  perhaps you can convince that promoter to throw an event in san jose during the con so you can walk to it.

My own suggest for Musicfest (which is what this thread is about) is: morning musume

Sounds fair enough.
I second MoMusu. I believe they have performed at AX and Japan Expo. :/

I'll also add that I would suggest kanonxkanon/Kanon Wakeshima, PIKO, supercell, UVERworld, Aqua Timez, and Aya Hirano. Just some ideas...

Ah yes! I would LOVE to see FLOW again!! They always put on a great show :3

FLOW again.

abingdon boys school
T.M.Revolution
Acid Black Cherry

and of course:

SIAM SHADE. Get them to re-unite for Fanime. (Ahaha, like that would happen, but a girl can dream, right? I need to see them live again.)

Please, don't bring back FLOW. Unless they come back like Momoi keeps coming back (I really do love that!)

Aside from the fact  have zero interest in FLOW and don't care for their music....

We need variation! I was going to try to catch Yuya (not exactly my favorite music either, but it seemed fun enough) but was too starving to after my Yoshiki fest.

I don't really have a particular suggestion, but I would like to see some showy J-Pop or something. I'll be honest, I won't be super into any of the bands that come, my J-rock fandom days are kind of over, but if a band is going to put on a really fun performance and I am okay with their music.... I'll go!

I'd really like to go to musicfest again! So stop bringing FLOW.

Good suggestion on Arashi, but bringing them here requires more funds that Fanime needs AND security due to their popularity. Not even the SJ convention center is big enough to hold a very huge crowd given the fact how much they can bring to their concert alone.


I would like to see Yuya Matsushita to come back again. His performances was great!

I think a great combo for next year would be: Home made kazoku and FLOW! Both of these bands would be amazing to see, since they are very talented and popular! The concert would be amazing since they did a song together a few years ago that they could perform together on stage! I think they would be a great choice for next year (or future years) since they both have such a large fan base. This is what I would suggest!

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

I'd like to ask that the suggestions stick to "WANTS" rather than "DO NOT WANT"s. Quite honestly, that's a lot more helpful for us staff, and also, it keeps things a bit more polite since label reps DO check the forums every now and then.

As a side note:
With how wonderful FLOW has been to attendees and staff these past two years, saying that you don't want them back is slightly rude to them =/

Well, nix the parts about their music not being my taste.

I do actually think they're talented. I do.

But honestly, I used to look forward to the variety of guests we'd get. I have to say, for me, having a band be a guest again and again and again is crummy for me. Especially with the merged concerts, where I couldn't figure out accurate info about who was performing when.

Let me put it this way.

I loved AnCafe. It was a fun concert. If AnCafe was back EVERY SINGLE YEAR I'd probably go once or twice, then you know what? I've seen their performance. It's a long line to wait in.

I appreciate FLOW's participation, because I know so many people had a lot of fun. This is just my personal opinion. I don't like seeing the same person headline over and over again, and that would apply to almost everyone. (ALMOST.)

And the only reason I brought it up is because everyone else is saying "Let's do FLOW again, for the third year" and I really do want to go to Musicfest again. =/

Also, something I love about Fanime is seeing who is showing up! I love seeing our regular guests, but with big events like Musicfest... I think it's really exciting when those are announced. My first thought is "YAYYYYY MUSICFEST"

Or maybe if we're doing FLOW again have three acts? That would be kind of epic. Especially if we featured different styles of music or something.

I think that people requesting for certain bands to return for whatever number of times is valid. It's equally valid as those who request huge name musicians who are currently on hiatus/just too big for our budget or musicians who tour the United States constantly.  It's okay to request because MF wants to hear your voice!

I believe that we have been trying our best to vary the styles that MusicFest has showcased over the past few years that I've taken over Extravaganzas.

You've mentioned that you want variety in our musical guests. I think this year MF has done extremely well in giving more variety over the past years with Matsushita Yuya (whose style is smooth R&B/Pop) and FLOW (Pop/Rock). They have two very different styles of music and gave us a fantastic concert this past Saturday.  Last year, we had FLOW and LM.C (Visual Kei). The previous year to that, we had Halko Momoi (Akiba-kei). We also had An Cafe (oshare kei) with Ramen & Rice opening up for them.

So we're definitely trying to break out of the mold of just one specific genre and we've been unsuccessful at bringing a female group. We've had a few who wanted to come but they had to pull out due to scheduling.

As for the bigger, "showy" JPop names, that takes us a lot of time (years!) to build a relationship with their label and a LOT of money. But we're working on it.

We do hear your voice for (or against) them but please understand that MF is doing all they can to make some of your wishes come true.

So THAT'S how it works. I was always wondering how MF was able to get such huge artists.  I know it's not a simple matter of going door-to-door asking companies. 

This is pretty impossible, but I really do want to see T.M.Revolution/Abingdon Boys School ;____;.  I'm an absolutely huge fan, and would go bonkers if he came.  Then again, if he did come, I would probably wait in line all day just to be first.  Nevertheless, that would be amazing.  And of course, I wouldn't mind seeing FLOW again.

I'm not saying you're doing a bad job. =) You've gotten some really big names these past few years. Musicfest has become insanely popular.

I may have just been unlucky, because I know people LIKE these bands. I just happen to not like the styles since.... well, Momoi. I like some of the genres, just not the specific sounds from the bands.

I was actually going to go to LM.C, but I left my camera in my bag and didn't want to go all the way back up to my high-floored hotel room and back. Argh. I got to the door before realizing it too.

Anyhow, it's hard for me to make suggestions in this topic that make sense, because my music taste is erratic. I might like bands 1 2 and 4, but 3, which is almost the same to most people, I hate. Or the opposite. I'm really picky about songs/bands/ etc.

What will get me around usually (even if the music isn't my FAVORITE) is a band that is either fairly serious, or really kooky. When someone is serious I can be like "Yeah. Seriously." but when they're kind of off the wall I can be like "You're reeeeeally odd. But that's kind of intriguing."

Fluffy pop is actually, mostly fun to me. There's been plenty of bad Jpop where I was like "I know this isn't even good, but gosh it's cute/fun!" (like all those bands that were formed by companies and


TLDR;

Frivolous Jpop?

Good job, MusicFest!

As for the bigger, "showy" JPop names, that takes us a lot of time (years!) to build a relationship with their label and a LOT of money. But we're working on it.

We do hear your voice for (or against) them but please understand that MF is doing all they can to make some of your wishes come true.

So THAT'S how it works. I was always wondering how MF was able to get such huge artists.  I know it's not a simple matter of going door-to-door asking companies. 

This is pretty impossible, but I really do want to see T.M.Revolution/Abingdon Boys School ;____;.  I'm an absolutely huge fan, and would go bonkers if he came.  Then again, if he did come, I would probably wait in line all day just to be first.  Nevertheless, that would be amazing.  And of course, I wouldn't mind seeing FLOW again.

YES. AGREE. rawr!

I'm still kicking myself after all these years for missing Nami Tamaki!!! I've been a huge fan of hers since 2003, but somehow didn't know she appeared at Fanime until 2009! *yeah, how the hell does THAT work, right??*

Anyways, here's my list:

T.M.Revolution
Nami Tamaki
Gazette
FLOW *they're too good not to come again lol!*

My boyfriend just introduced me to this new FEMALE ROCK BAND, Aldious. I think these women are incredible and could totally pull off an amazing show *___*

Of course, my number one and probably impossible request: OKUI MASAMI. She's my idol and absolute dream concert... just needed to express that, even though I know (well, thanks to Yoshiki, I can't say IMPOSSIBLE! haha!) it would be "extremely difficult" for Fanime to get her, but just imagine...... <3

ORANGE RANGE

@Amanojaku OH! I just scrolled down and saw you put ALDIOUS too! <3 YESSSS BRING THESE CHICKS OVER THEY'RE AMAZING!! I don't think we'd be getting X JAPAN (can you imagine the lines for Music Fest?!), but these girls are so incredibly talented!!!

I would love to see Yuya Matsushita again too! Now that I've had the chance to hear his music, I want to see him again :D I think a lot of people can agree, he's a real showman!

X Japan is a bit of a stretch to get over here, but they did say they'd have another North American tour after their worldwide tour starting this summer. Cross our fingers and hope they can make Fanime one of their stops ;)

My own suggest for Musicfest (which is what this thread is about) is: morning musume

YESS! They were awesome at AX and I would love to see them again and Fanime is way closer! My best friend would die *U* She's not into anime that much but SHE LOVES MM!

I would love it if AKB48 could come to Fanime as well! <3 I missed out when they went to AX last year D;


And I'll also suggest Arashi. Hey, nobody's mentioned in the thread that it had to be possible. :B

Good suggestion on Arashi, but bringing them here requires more funds that Fanime needs AND security due to their popularity. Not even the SJ convention center is big enough to hold a very huge crowd given the fact how much they can bring to their concert alone.


I would like to see Yuya Matsushita to come back again. His performances was great!
OMG I would DIE if Arashi could come D; It's my dream! But their concerts are huge lol

Hatsune Miku live would be interesting to see, even if

Well, some K-Pop groups also participate in the J-Pop scene. Some groups like 2PM, Brown Eyed Girls, and I think SHINee have a few songs in Japanese.

We take suggestions of all kinds, as long as the artists are relevant =P The cavaet is, how do we measure relevancy?

For example, SHINee just sold 50K+ units of their JP debut single release yesterday, and another 18K+ today, just behind AKB48's Maeda Atsuko. But since this is a debut, and they haven't been in the scene long enough yet, who's to say how long they'll be in the scene? And KARA...they were doing spendidly on the charts for a bit before they had their own little internal drama going on that had folks questioning if they were going to stick together or not. It's a constantly changing scene, so I'd rather encourage suggestions than discourage them. MusicFest has to predict a year in advance as to who will do well for the next year, so we don't set up hard rules for who won't be considered =P (unless it's someone who really doesn't make sense...like Chris Brown or something, lol)

In short (LOL), everybody is free to say who they want, but through research/knowledge/common sense, MusicFest will filter through the suggestions to decide who makes the best fit.

Alright, that's all fair. 
I supposed the Asian relevancy is the only key factor.
I suppose I was speaking from a slightly bias stance since I don't favor K-pop,
but there are some good artists out there no matter where they're from, right?   :-0

MegRock (there should be a star between that but I don't have JP on my keyboard and I'm lazy).

Besides being in the industry forever, she did a lot of major songs. Strangely, she's relatively unknown over here sadly. Card Captor Sakura, she wrote the OP to Gurren Lagaan, just to name two of the major contributions she's done.

personally I would love to see FLOW back again. I travel specifically to see these guys, and will do it a third fourth and fifth time if they keep coming back. As for other bands I would love to see Orange Range  or maybe a Visual Kei band. I'm not a fan of their music but I'm sure Asian Kung Fu generation would be popular,  though I'm personally not a fan of their music.

Actually, I second these two. I absolutely love MegRock's, (Megumi Hinata),  OP for Cardcaptor.

Well, some K-Pop groups also participate in the J-Pop scene. Some groups like 2PM, Brown Eyed Girls, and I think SHINee have a few songs in Japanese.
I also second 2PM. (Or first if you weren't actually suggesting... -.-; ) They did the first ED for Ao no Exorcist so it is not like they don't do JP songs.

I'm sure that there are other artists that I'd love to come. Although I wouldn't mind for AnCafe to come back, I'd probably love some of the other popular groups that haven't come to fanime yet. I don't really search out new bands so much anymore so it is rather fun to hear new stuff. And sadly most of my (utmost) favorite bands are disbanded so yeah... -.-;

One I'd like but it probably is unlikely....
Megumi Hayashibara (Slayers, Ranma, Love Hina, etc.)

Possible choices

Adding on to the long list that I've had queued for the last three years or so, I recently found out about 7!! (read: Seven oops) and they're really good. Though they're really, REALLY new (they just debuted from their indies career this year), and don't have as many songs under their belt as seasoned bands. But, considering there's quite a while between now and next May, I think there's possibly enough time for them to have a few more releases before Fanime rolls around.

7!!'s first single was used as the theme song for the live-action manga adaptation movie High School Debut (and a PUFFY cover they did is also in the movie), and their second single is used as the Naruto opening (don't know which). Their involvement in the anime industry is apparent though still just starting, but it'd be really exciting to see their style of music at Fanime...

LIIIINK to YouTube

tl;dr
7!! (Seven oops), new-ish band, High School Debut, Naruto, new sound for Fanime?

YES FLOW :D

I would return just to see FLOW again (I wasn't even their fan until this year's concert!) They really know how to work up a crowd. All my friends (who had no knowledge of FLOW before) became fans immediately after too! Their concert really was a lot of fun.

I know it's their third year but (maybe this is an incorrect usage of the idiom) "Why fix it if it ain't broke"? I really would love it if they came back! And scrolling through the thread I see that a majority agrees with me/would love to see to it become a Fanime tradition :D

I'd also enjoy seeing Scandal, Home Made Kazoku, or Nirgilis.

Let's get Afilia Saga East!
A cute idol group with an rpg/anime theme that I know would go over well at Fanime. ^^
Their music was featured in Steins:Gate.

Here's one of their songs.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaxgAiiepGc

I even brought it up at Momoi's Q&A since she is their producer.(I have no idea if that actually increases the chance of them coming over XD )
So come on staff, let's bring these girls to Fanime.

I definetly would love it if more kpop groups can come cause they are apart of asian culture.
Groups like MBLAQ, Shinee, 2PM, SS501, Girls Generation, Taeyang, Teen Top[/color]. Also maybe jpop artists like Boa Kwon, June, Utada Hikaru and Yuya again.

I would love it if AKB48 could come to Fanime as well! <3 I missed out when they went to AX last year D;


Thank you so much for mentioning AKB. I'm an IMMENSE fan of them. Lots of people don't know them here at Fanime, so having them come would be something new. Yea sure, they aren't related to anime, but I'm telling you... they are so incredibly popular/famous in Japan I didn't think it'd be possible. Selling over 1 million copies of their 23rd single "Flying Get" is pretty impressive if you ask me. And yet, barely anybody knows them at all here in America. Last year I suggested AKB48 to come to Fanime and I got some negative responses. I don't know what's the problem with them coming over. I mean they came to Anime Expo, there was no problem.  If you got any objections, HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT. (sorry for this long explanation/vent xD)

Is this a challenge? Okay, sure, besides the main group having so many members, if we were to have them as a guest. That would be roughly... 50 people we would be paying for. 50 plane tickets from Japan and back, + hotel rooms to accomadate all of them. The reason why they came to the other places, were that they paid for themselves. So, here's the thing, you're looking at roughly..80k to bring AKB48 here including managers, etc. Now... that 80k could be used to bring... 3 even 4 musical guests out here. Or 2 musical guests, a director, an artist, and a voice actor even.

It's not that they're unknown... AKB48 is known. It's more or less, do people like tem. AKB48 is popular in Japan, they are... but they're not mainstream. They're still very niche culture that likes them. It's the same as Hello Project. Yeah, they're popular, no denying. When they were at their peak in the early to mid 2000's They were even more popular. But they're not mainstream pop culture to the same extent that many other groups are. Hell even the K=pop invasion is growing more in popularity than AKB48 is. And if Fanime were to spend that much money? I would much rather see a really popular group... Like Perfume.

Well if you didn't know, when they came to Anime Expo, only 16 came. I do believe that they can pay for themselves again, I'm pretty sure AKB48 isn't a dirt poor group. They're pretty successful.  16 would still be a lot right? 16 tickets from Japan and back + hotel rooms would probably be around $20,000. If AKB48 couldn't pay for themselves to get here, how did they get to both LA and NYC in the first place?

And I'm not sure about what you mean "mainstream". I went to Japan in August and I seriously can't describe how popular they are over there. Yea Kpop is very popular in Japan, but surely they aren't more popular than AKB48. Obviously, KPop is way more popular than AKB48 in America, but I already said, it'd be introducing a new famous group to a lot of the Fanime goers.

Why are we talking about popularity anyways? It's not like Yuya Matsushita was very well known here before Fanime 2011. I never heard of him, and, be honest, a lot of people didn't know him as well. Don't get me wrong, Yuya is a cool guy. I loved his performance.

As for their popularity stateside, I don't pay attention to pop music at -all- and even I know who they are (and know that I don't like them, but that's beside the point), and know other people who know them. I think you might be underestimating their popularity here, since they aren't unknown by any means, and you are making it out to seem like they are. (The only recent Musicfest guest that I knew before the con was LMC, and pretty much only because they did the ending themes to Red Garden... which I only know because JiLL-Decoy association did the opening theme, haha)

Yes... I know all of this very well. Here's the thing. They invited themselves. They said "We would like to go to your event and we will pay for our own tickets". There's a difference between this and saying "Hey, we would like you to come to our event, BUT YOU NEED TO PAY FOR YOURSELF". The latter is extremely unprofessional, rude, and if anything else, just plain insulting. Besides that, it makes Fanime look like poor pathetic losers.

Look, I follow music in Japan better than you do. I follow the culture in general better than you do. AKB48 is popular, yes. There's no doubt, I stated this pretty clearly. But the target audience is not the general public. Your average person, is not a fan of AKB48 as their music is very... ... specific in appeal. I'm guessing you never actually took the time to really understand the lyrics of a lot of their songs, because they're rather... I don't know the correct word to use here. Innuendo-ey? But not in the normal way, in a very well, you either get it or you don't.

And I'm not talking about K-pop itself. K-pop itself is not popular in Japan at all... But Korean Artists that are coming to Japan and making JP music are.

See, here's what bothers me a lot about your posts. You speak as if you are a representitive of what is popular, what is know, what is unknown. Yuya was unknown? Really? A LOT LOT LOT LOT of Kuroshitsuji fans would agree with you. *I* knew who he was, and I don't like kuroshitsuji. But to double it up, Durarara was insanely popular during its run, and Trust Me... did well.

It's fine that you want to suggest AKB48, but please do not speak as if you know better than other people. You went to Japan, you follow things. But you do not know more than other people so please stop assuming and speaking like you do.

It really is about knowing the target audience, and the target audience that I'm most concerned with is the one here in the Bay Area.

Our audience is vastly different from others in America, let alone in comparison to the music audience in Japan, so there are a lot of factors that go into who we get as MusicFest guests, but the whole "omg-they're-too-popular-to-come-here!"argument is really a non-issue.

That being said, we take every suggestion seriously, so feel free to ask for whoever you want, but again, there are other things that affect our final decisions..

OK..I am still building my tastes for this particular area of musical stuffs, but I suppose I can make a few humble requests :)

Kanon Wakeshima: Saw her at AM2 and really liked her. My pipe dream is that she team up with Apocalyptica someday, even if it's just for one song XD

Buck-Tick: This one is for my husband. He got into the theme song of Trinity Blood when we were going through the series and next thing I know he has their catalog.

SCANDAL: Kind of bummed I missed their AM2 show, but I admit that we were quite unfamiliar with them until after the fact (and even if we wanted to see them, other things were kind of in the way).

I'll put in a Kalafina vote as well, because I've heard just enough of their stuff to be interested in their live show.

Just a note... SuperCell switched singers, and Nagi is no longer the female vocal, so they probably wouldn't do the Bakemonogatari music if they did come... As a side note, I've had their album Today is a Beautiful Day on repeat for the past two weeks.

Please bring someone from the K-pop section. I think K-pop should be allowed cause they are getting really popular and some of them are starting to have songs on anime shows. It would be so awesome to have girls generation or Shinee to show up. Or even U-kiss. I think its time for Fanime to atleast change up the musicfest guests.

I would LOVE to see Girls Generation live, but their so huge right now and getting bigger over here so I bet that would be insanely hard to pull off. I would also love F.T. Island, but I don't know if they have a big following in the anime world.

But I do completely agree that some K-pop would be an awesome addition to the line up.

Ikimono Gakari.

I've watched their youtube performances live, and they are beyond brilliant. Their vocalist is amazing, and has that naturally amazing voice without any need for fancy editing work (or editing at all really). They also did the OP for Naruto Shippuden, "Blue Bird." [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-rwfMvgaLs]  --the singing starts at around 2:00--the intro is just really epic.

Fanime seriously needs to stop bringing back the same artists all the time. When I spend my money at a convention I like to see new artists everytime I go. It is alright if years down the line they want to bring them back but seriously bringing them back all the time. I don't see how people want to keep returning especially when they never announce anything ahead of time. Fanime needs to start looking up to Project A-kon in Dallas, Texas. They always know whats going on months and months in advance so it draws people in. They have already had their music concert artists up already for a long time now and they start the beginning of June and seriously Fanime completely nothing on whats going on. But anyways I would love to see these artists at Fanime:
*The visual kei artist "D" I swear Asagi's voice is so AMAZING!
*X-Japan
*The Gazette
*Mantenrou Opera
*Nightmare
*T.M. Revolution
*Dir en Grey 
*Uverworld
I have to say that 2004 Fanime was they best year for musical artists by bringing "Blood", "Duel Jewel" and "Nami Tamaki". But throughout the years there would be only one band or none that were good in my opinion with repeats. If I was going to have bands come back I would love to see: Blood, Duel Jewel, Nami Tamaki, ZZ, Kamijo from Lareine which is now in Versailles, Poplar,Karma Shenjing and D'espairs Ray which performed as a separate concert from Fanime but they had to disband because of the lead singers rare throat condition. :( Please Fanime all I ask is that you start being more prepared and knowing what artists, etc. is going to happen ahead of time like A-kon does, it helps a lot to make a decision on wanting to pre-register or not since there isn't any info to go on.

You guys basically made my decade with Yuya, so thanks for that.

As for artists for this year, I would recommend Yuna Ito because she has an amazing voice, and she would be able to communicate with the fans and community easily due to her being from America in the first place.

Since I'm pretty much Yuya's biggest fan (self named), I doubt he'll make it to Fanime. According to his schedule, he'll be performing elsewhere during Fanime Q_Q

I would love to see Rie fu live--she's sung a handful of anime openings/endings (Bleach, Gundam Seed Destiny, Darker than Black, D.Gray-man, and most recently, Hourou Musuko/Wandering Son), and she speaks fluent English (spent years in USA/UK).

Another artist you guys could probably bring back (in a way) is Mai Fukui; she's no longer a part of POPLAR ('06 guest), but she's gone solo and has been doing reasonably well (in my opinion, at least).

I went to a concert in Japan in November (on "Culture Day") called @JAM. You can see pictures of @JAM here - http://www.at-jam.jp/2011/gallery/

I had a ticket lined up for a really cool DJ event the night before for a CD Release Party for the album "I <3 Tokyo for Anime Music Lovers", but I was dead tired and fell asleep... woke up more tired than when I took a nap! It ran from 11:30pm-5am... so I would have been dead for @JAM, so at least I got rest for that. :)

I saw LiSA for the first time live at @JAM and I'm now a HUGE fan! The music is great and her encore song is so much fun live... it's similar to making the hand gestures for the song YMCA, but it's spelling LISA instead. The whole band does it and everyone loves it. You can see a video of it here from her performance at AFA the weekend after:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VFRAQb9C0FY

She puts on a great live show and I would definitely see her again if she came to any con on the west coast. Right now people only know her from her music for Angel Beats (and now doing the OP for Fate/Zero), but I expect in the next few years she'll really grow in popularity and gather quite the fan base. I'd love for her to perform locally at Fanime, but I'll take what I can get. :)

To throw in my two cents. I would enjoy it if these artists came to Fanime this year.

Momoi Haruko - Cuz I've got a serious crush lol
Vocaloids - I'd be interested to see a concert of them "in person"
Maximum The Hormone - They can really get the juices pumping
Uverworld - I enjoy a lot of their music, not just from anime.
Megumi Hayashibara - Been a big fan since I was in middle school(23 now).

Fanime has always been late on putting things up sadly. I don't understand why they don't do things ahead of time like Project A-kon does. They always know who the guests are going to be as soon as they put pre-reg up so people know what they are buying unlike fanime :(. All I have to say is that I don't know who to talk to about this but Fanime needs to get together with Babel Entertainment which is a company that deals with anime cons such as A-kon, Oni-Con, Naka-Con, Anime Expo and tons of others directly to bring Japanese bands such as Blood Stain Child, D, Ayabie, Oz, Dir en Grey, L'Arc en Ciel, etc. to their venues.

Maybe its just you. because i know and have seen that Fanime has actually been good with keeping everyone up to date and putting things up and informing everyone about whats going on. Besides, if you're just buying a fanime ticket JUST for the concert thn thats kind of a waste of a ticket.  :-\
Plus the reason they bring back the same bands over again is because its chosen by popular demand. so cut fanime some slack. they're only doing what the fans request. like their motto goes " made by fans, for fans"

2. SuG
3. SID
4. The GazettE
5. Psychic Lover
6. The Brilliant Green

My 3 others would have to be:

1. THE PILLOWS
2. MBLAQ
3. BIG BANG/GD & T.O.P

I understand that the last two are K-Pop, but the two music scenes have been mixing quite a lot, so I personally think it would be okay..!
I do love and support the choices of FLOW and Uverworld as well as Yuya Matsushita and 2PM..!! And..a lot of..other choices too.. orz ..they're all pretty great. ;;u;;

--also if Peelander-Z got to perform as well, that'd be pretty kick ass.

LOL, oh my gosh that song...he's a genius xD I don't know of any American singer who would even consider prancing in a maid outfit on stage lol. But he definitely does it wonderfully.

What really gets me is when he is singing all cutesy and happily in his girl voice, in the maid outfit, but then suddenly switches to super screamo at 1:45; and then back to cute at 2:04 in a snap.

Hey, 2PM did the first ending to Ao No Exorcist. >A>" So there you go. =u= They might be the only K-pop group having any relation to anime, but, still. :U

On another note. Pushing for Versailles, yet again. ;A; But, I'll be happy with pretty much ANY visual kei band. xDD

I wish we could get some kind of announcement or update as to possible choices. I'm excited to find out whose coming this year. If they can swing Kalafina and/or Nirgilis, since I missed them at AX last year, that would be awesome. Nico Touches Walls too would be great. Or, by a long shot, Galneryus. I would LOVE seeing them in concert. Oh, and Angela. Always loved them and their live performance sounds as good as their recorded stuff.

Ok, here's my one last final push for Versailles. ;A; I know I'm probly just getting my hopes up too high, at this point, but, it's one of my biggest dreams to see them live. :c

SuG's my second pick, though. With LM.C as my third.

You might understand how badly I want them at this Fanime. I just have been dying to see them live since I first saw one of their mvs years ago. Gah. Plus that signing. I'd really die a happy person getting Shinpei's autograph.

SuG's playing on 5/27 and 28 in Korea, so my guess is that they're not coming this year.

Would've loved to see "Crazy Bunny Coaster" as well as many of their other songs performed live, but ah well. ;w;"
