Popular voice actors Daisuke Ono, Kenichi Suzumura, Showtaro Morikubo, and Takuya Terashima headlined at the Original Entertainment Paradise OrePara 10th Anniversary ORE!! SUMMER at the Fuji-Q Highland Conifer forest on 15 and 16 July 2017. Original Entertainment Paradise (OrePara for short) is a yearly concert with various popular male voice actors signed to record label Lantis. The festival attracts thousands of fans and each day of the event saw 13,000 people cheering on their favorite voice actors amidst the July heat.
The first day opened with new unit DearDream (Souma Ishihara, Kentaro Tomita, Takuya Mizoguchi, Masaki Ohta, Kaoru Masaki), who were formed as part of the 2.5D Dream Festival project and held their first solo concert in May this year. Next up was Toshiyuki Toyonaga, who is known for his roles in Durarara and A Silent Voice. The unit 2HEARTS (Fumihiko Tachiki and Toshiyuki Morikawa) performed after Wataru Hatano, who performed his newest single ‘Heart Signal’, the opening for the Summer 2017 anime Hitorijime My Hero. Mitsuo Iwata was also welcomed back to the OrePara stage, since he was busy writing his new book.
During the break in the middle of the festival, Showtaro Morikubo came on stage to announce the formation of his new unit, buzz★Vibes. The duo consists of Morikubo and former SOUL’d OUT keyboardist Shinnosuke.
For those who were not able to make last year’s Original Entertainment Paradise OrePara 2016 Xmas Magic event, a Blu-ray and DVD will be coming out on 2 August, for which the jacket has been revealed. Each Blu-ray / DVD will come with a special application ticket so you get a better chance of getting hold of a ticket for the winter 2017 OrePara event!
