Now you too can relive the glory of the Anisong World Matsuri


Did they sing your favorite theme?

If anime fandom is the bedrock of otaku culture, Anisongs - the songs that serve as anime series' opening and ending themes - are its voice. For a lot of fans, anisongs are also their gateway to Japanese music as well, as many of the artists contributing anisongs to various shows have their own careers and followings independent of the anime scene. 

Promoting and celebrating anisongs was the purpose of last year's World Anisong Matsuri, an ensemble performance by a bevy of anisong talents that took place at Anime Expo 2016. Unfortunately, not everyone who wanted to attend could, leaving them to just look up their favorite themes on Youtube or something.

Thankfully, Daisuki's there for you, and has a sweet twenty-two-minute digest video of the concert up right here. The video contains a number of highlights from the performances, including themes from shows like Sword Art Online, Rurouni Kenshin, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, One Punch Man, and more.You can check it out to see what you missed, and maybe think about visiting this year's Anime Expo in July to catch the next set of Anisong events.
