MOSAIC.WAV @ 「Animelo Summer Live 2008 -Challenge-」


2008 is clearly shaping up to be MOSAIC.WAV's biggest year so far! Today, they announced their participation at the two-day ANIMELO live event on August 30-31 2008, possibly the biggest Anime music concert out there since it first started in 2005. The event is already sold out: over 10,000 fans are expected to gather at the Saitama Super-Arena and with good reason too! Look at that crazy list of artists and singers which will appear on stage. Among others: 桃井はるこ, GRANRODEO, miko (from IOSYS/Albatrosicks), THE IDOLM@STER girls, 石川智晶 and the motherfucking JAM Project!!! Note the absence of any I've Sound members, which is surprising considering their strong Shakugan no Shana contributions. To be fair though, I don't think they ever participated in the previous festivals. Final observation: previous Animelo concerts had live DVD releases... so this should mark MOSAIC.WAV's first official DVD appearance!

Oh snap! I just realized that MOSAIC.WAV and THE IDOLM@STER girls will share the same stage. Some time ago, a rumor went around that 『 洗脳・搾取・虎の巻 』 was written as a potshot to Microsoft and Namco's insane DLC scheme and the thousands of idiots who forked over hundreds of dollars for new outfits and nekomimi hairpieces. It made sense considering the lyrics, but it was never debunked/proven. Still, it would be interesting to see THE IDOLM@STER's fans reaction if they choose to perform this (very) popular song at Animelo.
