News for Anime Boston 2008:

Anime Boston announces musical guest Luv and Response

Dance and fashion divas performs for Bostonians

Boston - Anime Boston, the largest anime convention in New England, announced its final Japanese guest today. Luv and Response, a vocal dance troupe, will fill the halls of the Hynes Convention Center with their unique sound during the annual conference on March 21 through the 23rd.

Luv and Response features fashion icon "D" on lead vocals. After rising through the world of Japanese couture, "D" sought out four professional dancers (boys "Life" & "Rofe", and girls "eLu" & "Any") to join him in a new endeavor to incorporate a cutting-edge style with fierce choreography.

Under the Luv and Response name, they organized a monthly event in Shibuya, Tokyo, where the guest list read like a who's who of the Tokyo glitterati. As a result, "SOUL'd OUT" track-master Shinnosuke has brought his golden, dance-pop touch to the Luv and Response sound as producer. The new collaboration is themed "Next Society", and will incorporate original fashion, music and choreography within a single, thematic canvas.

Fresh from their 2007 Japanese debut, Luv and Response UV AND RESPONSE will bring their innovative multi-media circus to Anime Boston.
