~Offering Deeper Immersion into Anime Worlds and Soundtracks~

Film Concerts of Hanasaku Iroha in May and Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere in July!


Bandai Namco Music Live Inc. (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo; Representative: Yoshitaka Tao, President) has initiated a new project titled “GEKIBAN LIVE PROJECT.”



Bandai Namco Music Live has been actively engaged in producing and managing not only music concerts but also film concerts that integrate visuals and stage performances with orchestral music across various works. Leveraging this expertise, we have launched the GEKIBAN LIVE PROJECT to offer opportunities for deeper immersion into the charm of soundtracks, which help to convey the world and emotions of the characters within respective works.


The performances will be presented in various formats, not limited to full orchestral arrangements, but also including string quartets, band ensembles, and other arrangements, depending on the atmosphere and content of the work. Furthermore, in addition to musical performances, elements such as video footage and artist vocals will also be incorporated to enhance audience enjoyment, with the aim of maximizing the overall charm.


We are scheduled to hold the Hanasaku Iroha Film Concert at Yokosuka Arts Theatre in Kanagawa on May 5, and the Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere Film Concert at the Hall of the Forest 21 (Matsudo City Cultural Hall) on July 27.


Additionally, in collaboration with the Sendai Philharmonic Orchestra, we have launched an initiative called Subscription Entertainment, with our company serving as an entertainment partner. Moving forward, we will continue to promote the appeal of anime and music, working toward the further growth and development of the Group’s IP business as a whole.
