The recent announcement of Anisong World Matsuri revealed nine trendy Japanese pop, and idol acts to hit the U.S.! Selected with the theme “anime” in mind, among these, we are able to find Aimer listed as one of the performing artists this year at Anime Expo 2018 (AX)! Besides Aimer, you will also find Aqours, Sayuri, Yuki Kajiura, May’n, Shoko Nakagawa, i☆Ris, THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS, and AKB48 Team 8. This time around, AX 2018 is taking place July 5–8 (and pre-show night on July 4) at Los Angeles Anime Convention, the same location as last year.

Aimer’s anime song debut started out with the anime No. 6 back in 2011, since then, she’s been taking part in huge anime such as Bleach, Fate, Zankyou no Terror, Gundam, and many more! She can also be found collaborating with Sawano Hiroyuki who is a prominent entity in the anime music industry (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill, Gundam, etc.). Their collaboration was a great success as Sawano’s music and Aimer’s husky vocals were a match made in heaven.

To see Aimer and the other eight acts live at Anisong World Matsuri during AX, you will need to get a badge to AX in addition to the concert tickets. Currently, ticket sales are unavailable but will be announced at a later date. As to where these unforgettable shows will be performed, it is at Microsoft Theater on July 4, 6, and 7. Each day offers a set of new acts.

Check out the line-up and see what anime contribution each act has under their belt!
