Cosplay Singer Reni

If you’re an otaku near New York City you’ll want to reserve Sunday March 1st on your calendars: Japanese cosplay singer Reni will be performing her “Japanese Maid Show” which features anime and J-Pop songs done in an authentic Akihabara style of singing and dancing:

Top Tunes, 303-305 East 53rd Street at 2nd Avenue
March 1st, Sunday 5-6pm (Doors open at 4:30pm)
No cover charge/one drink minimum

Here’s Reni’s bio:

“Reni was born in Japan and began her formal ballet training at the age of seven. Since then, she has been dancing nearly every day in styles ranging from Jazz and Hip Hop to “Nihon Buyo,” traditional Japanese dance. Reni expanded her talents to the theatrical world by joining the well-known Japanese company “Seinenza,” where she played an active role in both performing and directing.

In 2005, Reni won a major music contest in Tokyo, out of 1,000 participants. Her first CD was produced by Takahiro Yamautsuri, who composed music for one of the Pokemon movies. Her live performances in the major music clubs and show houses in Japan have grabbed the attention of a wide range of audiences. Her quality singing and powerful dancing in Akihabara style keeps them coming back for more. In 2008 she relocated to the U.S.A. and is quickly gaining a loyal fan base.”
