The developer responsible for the massively popular Disgaea RPG series is holding a concert this year, and among the artists joining them are a famous voice actress and idol unit.
As part of their 20th anniversary celebration, Nippon Ichi Software is holding the concert “Makai Wars Live episode1: Asagi’s Counterattack” on July 13 at Yokohama Blitz. Along with the musicians they listed earlier, they have announced that the voice actress Minori Chihara will perform at the event.
Anime fans should be familiar with Chihara for her roles as Yuki Nagato from The Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi and Chiaki from Minami-ke. Fans of Disgaea should also be familiar with her role as the rebel leader Barbara from Disgaea D2. In addition, she performed the opening theme, Cradle Over, so if you like that song, you’ll want to hear her perform it live.
Earlier, NIS also announced that the idol unit μ’s (pronounced “muse”) will perform at Makai Wars Live. The name μ’s should be familiar to fans of Love Live, since it’s the name of the school idol group that stars in the anime.
Only five of the members will be joining the event, though: Emi Nitta (Honoka Kousaka), Yurika Kubo (Hanayo Koizumi), Sora Tokui (Nico Yazawa), Aina Kusuda (Nozomi Toujou), and Yoshino Nanjou (Eri Ayase).
In case you’re wondering why these members will be featured at the event, it’s because they voiced the main heroines of The Guided Fate Paradox, which NIS released in January. In fact, they also starred in a character song album that was released last month.
On a side note, Suzuko Mimori, another member of μ’s, will also perform at the event, so that’s actually six members of the idol group.
NIS has prepared a killer line-up for Makai Wars Live, so fans should come to hear their best musicians and maybe (just maybe) an announcement on the game that NIS teased nine years ago.
