JAM Project (“Japan Animationsong Makers Project”) is a Japanese anime song supergroup formed in 2000 that is comprised of five veteran vocalists: Hironobu Kageyama (Dragon Ball Z), Masami Okui (Revolutionary Girl Utena), Yoshiki Fukuyama (Macross 7), Masaaki Endo (The King of Braves GaoGaiGar), and Hiroshi Kitadani (One Piece). They have achieved an extraordinary position in the “Anisong” genre. In 2008, they completed their first world tour called “No Border” in 8 countries and established strong international recognition. After adding a South American tour in 2012, JAM Project continues singing “Anisong” all over the world to represent Japanese culture.
YOUSEI TEIKOKU ("Fairy Empire”) is made up of five members: Yui (vocal), Takaha Tachibana (guitar), Nanami (bass), Shiren (lead guitar), and Gight (drums). Their music style is a mix of Techno, Trance, Gothic, Heavy Rock, and Classical. This heavy yet symphonic sound was showcased in the theme songs to Mirai Nikki in 2011. They also performed the ending song for the 2014 anime Tokyo ESP.
Yoko Ishida’s music career started after she won a contest to become an “Anisong” singer in 1990. Her debut was in 1993 with the song “Otome no Policy,” which is the ending theme song for Sailor Moon R. In 2003, her 1st album “sweets” was released in the U.S. and she performed a U.S. tour called “AFT (Anime Fusion Tour)” in 13 locations in 2005-2006. She is also known as the singer of the theme songs for the Strike Witches series. She has held concerts in 8 countries and will continue performing as an international “Anisong” singer
In 2008, ChouCho began posting videos of herself singing on Nico Nico Douga, a popular video sharing website in Japan, which led to her major debut single “Kawaru Mirai” for the 2011 anime Heaven’s Memo Pad.
Faylan debuted with “mind as Judgement,” the opening song of the 2009 anime CANAAN. She has been performing theme songs for several anime and video games, such as the “BLAZBLUE” series in 2013 and many more.
Sayaka is the winner of the “3rd All-Japan Anisong Grand Prix” in 2009, out of 6,570 groups in the competition. She debuted with “Seisai no Ripieno,” the second opening song for the 2009 anime The Book of Bantorra. She continues to sing for many anime and video games.
Bamboo (from milktub)
milktub is a music unit consisting of bamboo (vocals) and Ichibanboshi Hikaru (guitar) with the slogan of “fast, silly and stylish.” They performed the theme song of the 2013 anime Uchouten Kazoku.
Still debating if I want to go to this. I'll be at OV more for Sushio and any other artist guests they get. So it'll depend on their schedule.
And Bamboo..really? He's a dork. Met him at AX when he came over with MangaGamer and he thought pretty highly of himself. Also had an oppai fetish.
If the schedule works out for you, I'd definitely recommend going to at least one of the shows! All 7 artists will be performing on both days, so either day (or both!) will be well worth it.
And bamboo, yeah, he probably just wanted to hang out in Vegas for a few days, haha. But he's done some good work and I'm looking forward to hearing Uchouten Jinsei.
I'd go if fhana was playing.
Just announced, Hatsune Miku has been added as a special guest!
They're running a poll to find out everyone's favorite songs. If you don't see your favorite in the options, leave it in a comment and you just might get to hear it!
Here's a sneak preview of some of the goods that will be included in the VIP lucky bags, including a towel, uchiwa (fan), and t-shirt! Designs shown are example only; actual items will vary with each bag.
