[press release] An Café Bassist and Video Game Producer kanon to Appear at Otakon 2010

Bassist kanon, one of the founders of the visual kei band An Cafe and currently a video game producer, will appear at Otakon. With a signature flamboyant style and Fender Jazz bass, kanon attracted a sizable fan base around the world as part of An Cafe. After a successful world tour and a big final show at Nippon Budokan in January, An Cafe went on hiatus.

Currently, kanon is producer for the recently released mobile phone game Pinky Distortion. Pinky Distortion features DIS;CODE, a visual kei band in search of a vocalist. The player takes the role of a young singer recruited as the band’s manager, who must find a way to keep the band together and lead them to their first successful live concert. The game emphasizes kanon’s belief that a group of passionate people can create something more amazing than any individual.

Kanon will participate in panels and autograph sessions during the weekend, and will be a guest DJ during the Otakurave, Otakon’s nightly dance party.

Otakon 2010 will be held July 30 – August 1 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
