Remember when we introduced our musical guests for this year?
Well, they have something special in store for all our visitors!
They have created a special video announcement for all of you!
Nagareda Project is a mysterious masked rock group of 4 talented young men.
Vocalist Nagareda Yutaka, guitarist Anazawa Jun, bass guitarist Momoyama Ryuji and Kurikawa Masahiro on the drums.
Nagareda Project started out on Youtube and soon became very popular. They are specialised in covering anime songs, where they often changed the female vocals to male vocals. Next to their specialisation in cover songs they also have several original songs.
They debuted in 2010 with their first single packed with anime cover songs. In the years after their first release they grew in popularity. It is not often that a cover band grows to be such a success in the Japanese music world, it was only natural for them to want to hold on to this success.
Nagareda Project is very excited to come back to Europe after their performance on Connichi. Besides that they have never been in the Netherlands before. So let’s give them a warm Dutch welcome to make sure that it’s a visit they will never forget!
Nagareda Project will perform on Saturday night at the main stage.
The concert is FREE for our visitors with a valid Saturday or Weekend ticket.
The sign-ups for Cosplay Act Competition, Cosplay Masquerade, C4 2016 preliminaries and EuroCos 2015 preliminaries are going to open on 22 May 2015. If you want to compete, please sign up. If you have any questions: don’t hesitate and ask them on our forum or on Facebook. For more info and the rules please check here.
Some of you might have noticed: several rules of our competitions are already online. The signups for these competitions will open later (We will post the exact date in another announcement). So please take your time to read through these rules if you want to compete in the competitions and don’t hesitate to ask questions in our forum or on Facebook.
As you may have noticed, there’s been a change in the line-up of our cosplay competitions. Not only are there more of them but one in particular has undergone a complete metamorphosis. The Cosplay Fashion Show has been drastically changed to make it more accessible. Since we now have so many high level competitions, signing up as a beginner or even an advanced performer or cosplayer can be daunting. We felt that we needed something on entry level which would be less intimidating, easy to join and participate in with a full focus on your costume that would just be a lot of fun for everybody. Well friends, that’s why there is no more Cosplay Fashion Show anymore but instead we would love to introduce you to our new and improved Cosplay Masquerade!
With this beginner and advanced level competition, you can even participate if it’s your first time ever cosplaying. Have fun showing off you costume on stage and who knows, maybe you’ll end up winning one of those coveted trophies! This is your chance to rub shoulders with fellow cosplayers, exchange knowledge with others or just learn from observing the show. It’s all about less stress and more fun!

Abunai! 2015 is going to spice it up with a sweet new competition on Saturday!
This year we welcome Animecon’s Clara Cow’s Cosplay Cup 2016 Dutch preliminaries! The CCCC (or C4) will be added to the Cosplay Act Competition show on the Saturday of Abunai!. This relaxed new international competition will focus for 60 percent on the act of each duo. And what is your prize? If you win the finals at Anime 2016, you get to travel to Japan and compete in a traditional Chinese cosplay showcase.
In addition to the CCCC preliminaries we also made a few changes to the Cosplay Act Competition, such as the duration of the act. Please read all the rules (when they are ready) thoroughly if you want to compete.
