Nippon Budōkan is an indoor arena venue that can seat about 14,000 attendees, although it typically seats 10,000 or less when configured for musical concerts. OLDCODEX just began their "A Silent, Within the Roar" tour at Sapporo on Sunday.
OLDCODEX provided songs for anime such as Kuroko's Basketball, Arata the Legend and Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club. Incidentally, its frontman, Tatsuhisa Suzuki, has voiced characters in all three (Kazunari, Akachi and Makoto, respectively). The band's A Silent, Within the Roar album includes "Rage on," Free!'s opening song, and "WALK," Kuroko's Basketball's second season's ending theme. The band performed the opening theme song "Dried Up Youthful Fame," for Free! Eternal Summer.
Mamoru MIyano was the first male voice actor to perform at the arena. Granrodeo, Yukari Tamura, Nana Mizuki, Maaya Sakamoto, and Yui Horie have performed in the arena as well.
