Presented by Thai Life Insurance and G-Yu Creative, the festival showcases anime music performed live by famous artists who will fly in from Japan.
This year's festival will be special as it will be the debut of the original singer of the legendary Doraemon's TV theme song, Kumiko Oosugi. This is the first time she is performing the much-loved tune outside of Japan.
Set to create more fun on stage will be Masaaki Endoh, another top-notch singer of Japanese anime favourites, who will also perform here for the first time. And at the request of One Piece manga fans, Hiroshi Kitadani will make a comeback to perform two tracks from the pirate show.
Joining him on stage will be a pretty female singer, Kazumi from Sony Music, who will treat anime fans to plenty of anime theme songs.
The Sincharoen Brothers will give a mini concert on March 30 from noon to 1pm, followed by the launch of The Mavericks, a Thai comic book series created by Danai "Dan" Smuthkochorn, a famous actor and hard-core fan of superhero comics, at 2pm.
The same day also features a demonstration on Doraemon voice dubbing by a team of those who dub characters in Doraemon, at 5pm.
The Thai-Japan Anime & Music Festival 3 will take place in front of CentralWorld from 11am to 7pm, this weekend. There is no admission fee. Visit www.gyucreative.com/animemusicfestival2013.
