Are you looking forward to this? Are you going to experience this true Vocaloid wonder? If you need further persuasion, you can read more about the five performing artists here:
#kzn: Kizuna AI is one of the world's most popular VTubers (Virtual YouTuber) with more than 4.5 million subscribers, and #kzn is an AI (artificial intelligence) who can sing itself, created from her voice. The International Anime Music Festival is her first worldwide tour.
HIMEHINA: A virtual duo consisting of the energetic and high-pitch singing Hime Tanaka and her opposite Hina Suzuki, known for her soft voice and 'spacey' personality. HIMEHINA are the first VTubers, who simultaneously have been number 1 and 2 in Asia on the popular music app HighReso, and their concerts are ultra popular and sell out extremely fast.
GUMI: One of the most beloved vocaloids (a voice synthesizer application), who since 2009 has published ten albums with more than 100 million views, but who has only just started performing outside of Asia. She recently published the software "A.I. Voice", where fans can make songs with her voice.
MaRiNaSu: A new virtual girl group – consisting of the three energy-filled Rin, Naho, and Subaru – whose high-energy concerts offer cool dance choreographies, awesome vocal harmonies, and wild costume changes throughout the show. The International Music Festival is their international debut.
LiLYPSE: A mysterious pop duo consisting of the twin sisters Mikado and Oboro Akatsuki, who brings the audience into a wild and double-sided dream universe in their concerts – Mikado can be translated into 'sun', while Oboro means 'foggy' and is linked to the moon.
