2010 – Otakuthon


I was so happy and honored when Otakuthon invited me (and Mark and Kara) to join them for the convention 5th anniversary in 2010. It would also be an opportunity for Iru & Friends to sing together one last time before we all moved on to our lives.

First, I was invited to sing at the OPENING Ceremony. Along with the Friends as a choir, we performed YELL from Ikimono Gakari.

An hour later, we took part in the new convention initiative ; The J-Music In Motion (or JMM) show featuring amateurs jpop and anime singers and dancers who had to previously auditionned to be on the show. Our first song was “Un Regard de l’autre Côté”; a French adaptation of the song “A Look on the other side” from the anime Saiyuki.

Our second song was closing the show. We decided to go with one of Macross Frontier’s hit, the song “LION”.

On the Sunday, I was involved in the Otakuthon Idol (again ;)). I was invited to act as a Guest Judge and to open the event with a song. I picked “Bokutachi no yukue” from Hitomi Takahashi from the anime Gundam.
