Anime Frontier powered by Crunchyroll is starting off with bang, bringing in powerhouse singer-songwriter ZAQ for the inaugural event produced by the creators of Anime NYC. ZAQ will headline the “Anime Diva Night” concert held on May 8 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, TX.
Japanese singer ZAQ is a prolific singer, lyricist, composer, and arranger who began studying piano at the age of three and grew up listening heavily to anime song or “anisong” music. She began working professionally writing music for other anisong singers before debuting herself with the song “Sparkling Daydream”, the opening theme to Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions, which broke into the Top 10 of the Oricon singles chart. Since then, the versatile songstress has performed the themes to over 25 anime titles including Classroom of the Elite, Concrete Revolutio, Flip Flappers, Food Wars! The Third Plate, The Magnificent KOTOBUKI, Maria the Virgin Witch, Rail Wars, and Trinity Seven.
Anime Frontier Powered By Crunchyroll is a celebration of anime, manga, and Japanese pop culture with close ties to the creators and companies at the heart of Japanese entertainment, and its Anime Diva Night concert will be a showcase of popular anisong singers created together with Japanese music company Lantis.
Lantis, founded in 1999 in Tokyo, focuses on anisong music, and it has published two decades of hits, including themes from anime titles Azumanga Daioh, Bungo Stray Dogs, Food Wars!, Free!, GIRLS und PANZER, Genshiken, THE iDOLM@STER, Love Live!, Lucky Star, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Rozen Maiden, and Violet Evergarden. Lantis frequently collaborates with Anime Frontier’s sister show, Anime NYC, and the Anime Diva Night concert series originated at Anime NYC in 2017.
Anime Diva Night at Anime Frontier will feature ZAQ and additional artists from Lantis for an evening dedicated to anisong favorites. General admission to Anime Diva Night is free for Anime Frontier attendees, and information on limited VIP tickets will be coming soon.
