Damn! I don’t think I’ll get any sleep tonight thinking about the fact that we are breathing the same air from the same city! I’m possibly going crazy atm.
Ah this past month has been a roller coaster ride for me since discovering Babymetal, and the only thing that goes around my mind are them. This, whats happening now is close to a dream for me and I haven’t felt this shocked and ecstatic in quite a while.
If anyone please know of any plans of them in advance please let me know.
Heck even if you know their hotel address or any other info that might lead me to them or anything just tell me. If I get lucky and catch them, might get something golden out the opportunity for all of you. Please guys!

BABYMETAL: petitioning to get our kawaii metal girls at Anime Expo

Gabriel Castillo from Cypress, CA has start a petition to get BABYMETAL at the next Anime Expo in Los Angeles that’s gonna take place from july 3 to july 6 at the Los Angeles Conventions Center

NBObsJHTcomtMgZ-556x313-noPad

BABYMETAL is a rising “Kawaii-Metal” band in Japan. They are slowly but surely reaching out past Japan and to the rest of the world.

If Anime Expo were to invite them to perfom, they would be a huge hit! They have performed at other Anime conventions and festivals with great success. I believe if they were to be invited to perfom, it would be great exposure to a western audience and a memorable performance.

Anime Expo® 2014

Anime Expo® 2014 | Los Angeles Conventions Center

Anime Expo is a 24-hour convention that offers late-night dances, all night video programming, tabletop gaming rooms, and open-mic Karaoke in the late evening/early morning hours. Many of the attendees cosplay while attending the convention, and there are many gatherings for fans of different anime and manga series.
