posted on 2010-05-14 21:55 EDT
The Anime Central covention announced on Friday that it will be screening the film Yoshiki History through X Japan during the convention's Masquerade intermission on Saturday, May 15 in Rosement, Illinois. Yoshiki, the leader of the X Japan rock band, will introduce the film via video chat.
X Japan's most notable anime contributions were the songs in the X² music video collection and later X movie. The animation studio Madhouse adapted both productions from CLAMP's X manga. The surviving band members — Toshimitsu "Toshi" Deyama, Yoshiki Hayashi, Tomoaki "Pata" Ishizuka, and Hiroshi "Heath" Morie — reunited in 2007, ten years after they first disbanded and nine years after the death of guitarist Hideto "Hide" Matsumoto.
