My ears exploded reading that lineup. Wow. Wow.

God, this will be better than Animelo (which is not hard given the recent years). Hopefully there will be lots of collaboration performances.

Oh man, thats a badass lineup. It would have been cool if Etsuko Yakushimaru made it as well. I wish I could go...

Animelo Summer Live 2013 and 2014 were a bit heavy on idol acts, but still the collaborations across record labels are very welcome and the production quality is top class. Animax Musix only approached Animelo Summer Live's production quality in 2014 (and was 7 hours on a single day, compared to 3 different concerts of 5 hours for each of Animelo Summer Live 2013 and 2014).

Lantis 15th anniversary had the advantage of multiple shows and longer running times.

Given that the King Super Live 2015 shows have the same 22 acts on both days and start at 4pm (same as Animelo Summer Live), I'm guessing that the shows will run until 9pm.

[edit] I've attended all days of Animelo Summer Live in 2011, 2012, 2013, Yuki Kajiura Live vol. #10 in 2013, 5pb Live 2013, day 2 of Animax Musix 2013 and Animax Musix 2014 so I have had a little experience with these kinds of shows.

A nice mix of talents who can sing various genres, as opposed to events that announce to "bring over big, Japanese talents" and all of them are specialized in the cutesy moe field.

My boyfriend works for KR and Star Child in the anime/music department. He does a LOT of event help too, so I'm guessing June is gonna be a tough time for us to move in together as planned -_-

BTW, interesting seeing Masami Okui listed.

She appeared at 5pb Live and Animax Musix and Lantis 15th Anniversary shows last year, so I'm not sure if she's signed to different labels as a solo artist and as part of JAM Project or whether her inclusion in King Super Live 2015 is due to her role in helping develop some of the artists who will be appearing.

I wish we had more concert like these in the US, the one in Las Vegas was a rarity.
