This one-day only live concert will be performed by the veteran voice actors - Yuu Mizushima, Kazuhiko Inoue, and Yuji Mitsuya. Their acting career started while they were still teenagers, and as the public's interest in anime increased, so did their popularity. Now in their sixties, they are far from slowing down. I’ve been to their stage plays before, and they never cease to amaze me after all these years. Their loyal fans snap up the tickets as soon as they become available, and after many failed attempts, this FULL Kabs live is my first time ever to succeed in securing a booking for Yuu Mizushima’s concert. It looks the pre-order lottery through the online ticketing agencies is closed, but it should open up for general booking soon. *

*As for the ticket purchase - it’s almost impossible for a non-Japanese speaker to buy tickets in advance for ANY kind of entertainment because all of the major online ticketing websites are exclusively in Japanese. The only advice I can offer here is to search for a service that assists visitors in buying tickets on their behalf. I only found one. Search for “Japan concert tickets agent” - I’m not posting its link here, but it looks like it’s your best bet.
