posted on by Andrew Osmond
Aso sang several anime songs; two other festival guests announced.

The Hyper Japan festival in London has announced that the anime singer Natsuko Aso will be performing on the Friday and Saturday of the event (February 24 and 25).

Aso's song credits include the opening songs for Baka and Test - Summon the Beasts and Modern Magic Made Simple, as well as the closing numbers for Tantei Opera Milky Holmes Dai-Ni-Maku. (More of her song credits are available on her encyclopedia page; her website is here.) In addition, Aso played Chisame Hasegawa in the live-action TV version of Negima! (Negima! Magister Negi Magi).

Meanwhile, the distributor Third Window film has tweeted that the actress Eri Fuse will attend Hyper Japan. Fuse is known for such live-action films as the comedy Turtles Swim Faster than Expected, but she also played Hiromi Tanaka in Cutie Honey The Live (based on Go Nagai's manga). Miki Satoshi, the director of Turtles Swim Faster Than Expected, will also attend Hyper Japan.

The festival will take place from Friday 24 February to Sunday 26 February 2011, at Brompton Hall, Earls Court. Tickets are available here.
