Think about your favorite anime series over the past nearly twenty years. Regardless of genre, one thing is bound to be certain: Japanese voice actor Mamoru Miyano probably voiced a character in the series.
Here’s just a small sample: Tamaki in Ouran High School Host Club, Light Yagami in Death Note, Kiba in Wolf’s Rain, Death the Kid in Soul Eater, Shu Tsukiyama in Tokyo Ghoul, Rintaro Okabe in Steins;Gate, Rin Matsuoka in Free!. The list goes on and on (and on and on and on). His voice is timeless, priceless, recognizable to almost all who watch anime! But did you know? He’s also an incredible singer! You might’ve even heard him singing your favorite anime theme songs.
Whether you’re a fan of his voice acting career or his song catalog, get excited, because he is holding a virtual livestream concert for worldwide fans on December 12.
Titled MAMORU MIYANO STUDIO LIVE ～STREAMING!～ (site includes an English translation), this one of a kind concert will be live streamed directly from the recording studio in Tokyo and available for fans all over the world. The concert will start at approximately 3:30 a.m. CT on Friday morning (so early, but worth it for Mamoru-san!).
Oh, and you can get hyped by listening to all of his tracks on his official Youtube channel or on Spotify and jam out to his beautiful soothing voice before you can experience it LIVE in the comfort of your own home.
We’re so excited to watch Mamoru Miyano’s live performance and we hope you are too! If you’re planning to tune in, share this post and let us know! And as always, stay tuned to Funimation for all things anime, this season and beyond.
