Stars of Fruits Basket, The Royal Tutor, and more will appear in tuxes for the event
Anime JAM 2019 takes place next month, bringing together voice actors from all your favorite series. A new key visual for the event features popular characters dressed for the occasion... and it seems the stars themselves will be, too!
The new visual depicts favorite characters from Inazuma Eleven, Ace of the Diamond, Fruits Basket, and The Royal Tutor in fancy suits themed to their respective works. If you like the look, you're in luck: the stars will apparently be wearing similar outfits for part of their time onstage at the event!
Appearing at Anime JAM this year will be:
First Row: Jun Fukuyama (Yuma Nosaka, Inazuma Eleven), Hirofumi Nojima (Shuya Goenji, Inazuma Eleven), Tomohiro Oomachi (Mitsuru Ichihoshi, Inazuma Eleven), Keisuke Ueda (Heine Wittgenstein, The Royal Tutor)
Second Row: Yuya Asato (Kai von Grannzreich, The Royal Tutor), Yuto Adachi (Bruno von Grannzreich, The Royal Tutor), Daisuke Hirose (Leonhard von Grannzreich, The Royal Tutor), Ryota Osaka (Eijun Sawamura, Ace of the Diamond)
Third Row: Nobunaga Shimazaki (Satoru Furuya, Ace of the Diamond/Yuki Soma, Fruits Basket), Shintaro Asanuma (Yoichi Kuramochi, Ace of the Diamond), Yuuma Uchida (Koshu Okumura, Ace of the Diamond/Kyo Soma, Fruits Basket), Manaka Irami (Tohru Honda, Fruits Basket)
There will be a trivia quiz, as well as a new experiment for the event: a specially-written audio drama that will be performed only at this year's Anime JAM.
Anime JAM 2019 takes place December 22, and will have two performances: one at 2pm and one at 6:30pm. Tickets are on sale now.
