It wouldn’t be a summer event without some awesome summer jams – and AniManGaki has that covered in spades. While the event will mainly feature anime-inspired artists such as Kururu and ALida from Indonesia, performers from other genres like pop-mosh band Patriots and renowned pianist Ray Mak are also set to make an appearance.
AniManGaki will also be bringing an ACG event staple – the maid cafe – to the online stage, with featured performances from not one, but two different maid cafes from Taiwan, namely Pumpkin Nest Maid Cafe and TUKUYOMI Maid Cafe. We’re definitely excited to see what these two groups bring to the table!
