As promised, here is Part 2 of the interview with ROOKiEZ is PUNK'D at Fanime! In this later half of the long interview, the band shared their future, their background and what happened when they tried a pick up line in English on an unsuspecting Asuka cosplayer at the con. After the interview, you'll see gorgeous live shots from the show and the set list. Enjoy after the jump!
I was able to have an interview with one of the Guests of Honor, ROOKiEZ is PUNK’D who packed and rocked the San Jose Civic Auditorium on Saturday night during FanimeCon 2013 on Memorial Day weekend in San Jose California. They are a 4 man Alternative rock band who is best known among anime fans for their debut single, “Complication” (Durarara! anime opening theme) and “IN MY WORLD” (Blue Exorcist anime opening theme). Get to know them in part 1 of the interview after the jump!
Northern California anime convention FanimeCon took over the city of San Jose, CA last weekend and although there were many newsworthy cosplays on display, this one definitely needed to be a news story in itself, a 1:1 ratio entry plug from EVANGELION that you can actually ride in! It has been heavily featured in photos and videos from Fanime, but I was able to talk to the prop maker to get the full story on its construction. More photos after the jump!
Aniplex USA held its long-awaited industry panel during the Fanime anime convention earlier today and did not fail to surprise, as it announced that it will release fan favorite Bakemonogatari later this Fall in a limited boxset, among other new developments. Hit the jump for all of the details.
FanimeCon, which takes place at the San Jose Convention Center from May 27-30, already has a pretty impressive Guests of Honor lineup. Well, they recently announced two more additions: Japanese rock icon Yoshiki, and illustrator Mamoru Yokota.
