The Anime Festival Asia convention announced last Friday that it will host Kishida Kyōdan & The Akeboshi Rockets and Real Akiba Boyz as musical guests.
The group formed in 2007, and the group made their major debut with the opening theme song for the High School of the Dead anime. Since then, the group has performed theme songs for such anime as Strike the Blood, GATE, Alderamin on the Sky, Strike the Blood II, Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens, and Sirius the Jaeger. The group has released seven singles and three albums.
Real Akiba Boyz (R.A.B.) was founded in 2007. Currently, the group consists of Atsuki Suzumiya, Keitan, Maron, and Murato. The group choreographs and executes break dance routines set to popular anime theme songs, such as Paradise Lunch's "Gun's&Roses" (Baccano!), Masayoshi Ōishi's "Kimi Janakya Dame Mitai" (Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun), BRADIO's "Flyers" (Death Parade), and μ's' "Bokura wa Ima no Naka de" (Love Live!). Some of R.A.B.'s members have placed first in national dance competitions in Japan and have represented Japan in world dance competitions.
The Singapore event will take place from November 30 to December 2.
