Aniplex will hold an exclusive screening of the dub at Seattle's Sakura-Con convention in March, followed by a question-and-answer session with Sword Art Online light novel series creator Reki Kawahara. The anime's theme song performers Eir Aoi (Fate/Zero, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE) and Luna Haruna (Fate/Zero) will also appear at the event.
The company announced that it will screen the Fate/Zero television anime series' English dub at Sakura-Con on March 29, before it airs on Viz Media's Neon Alley streaming service this spring.
Aniplex of America will also release the Mikunopolis in Los Angeles concert in a limited-edition Blu-ray Disc and CD combo set. The Hatsune Miku concert took place on July 2, 2011 as part of the Anime Expo convention. The release includes deluxe Digipak packaging, PET sleeve case, and a double-sided poster. Bonus features include "Making of Mikunopolis" and the "Opening Act: Dancealoid" performance. Aniplex will begin accepting pre-orders on Monday, and the set is slated to ship on April 16 for US$74.98.
This year's Sakura-Con will be held at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle, Washington on March 29-31.
