posted on by Heather Skinner
The New York Anime Festival (NYAF) and Superglorious announced that the J-Rock duo Puffy AmiYumi will be performing at the Far East to East Showcase (FETES) in New York City on Sunday, October 10. Puffy AmiYumi will also be appearing at the NYAF and New York Comic Con throughout the weekend for panel discussions and autograph signings before appearing on stage at Irving Plaza.
Composed of singers Ami Onuki and Yumi Yoshimura, the duo debuted in 1996, and since then they have had numerous hit songs, commercial appearances, and their own television show which aired in 110 different countries. In 2009, Puffy AmiYumi were appointed the Goodwill Ambassadors of the Visit Japan Campaign for the United States.
NYAF is taking place alongside New York Comic Con at the Javits Center in New York City this fall. The paired conventions have already announced that the Japanese rock band VAMPS, as well as comic legends Stan Lee, John Romita, Sr., and John Romita, Jr., will also appear as guests.
