2d6 Live! in Concert
presented by 2D6 – Ages 16+

"..a legendary musical group."
"No band has influenced pop culture the way they have."
"Irrepressible and irresistible, they were -- and remain --the world's most astonishing band."

The band? The Beatles, whom 2d6 once listened to. They were pretty good, too! Those descriptions were probably pretty accurate! But 2d6 is pretty good, too. They're a couple of nerds, who were once a couple of animals, who found a pair of six sided-dice after running away from a lab--listen, the backstory's a lot to take in; suffice it to say: 2d6 likes to rap about geeky pop culture. Anime, video games, comic books, roleplaying, 2d6 covers it all! And not only do they do it, they do it with more energy, verve, and panache than any other band you've ever seen.

Listen, nerds know a lot about words. Rappers must know a lot of words to succeed. QED, nerds are the best rappers. So let 2d6 to rap at you while they pelt you with a ton of candy. Check out 2d6 @ 2d6music.com!

TAMAKO MARKET (Ages 14+)
Tamako knows just about everything there is to know about mochi, the traditional Japanese desert treats. When she's not attending her first year of high school, she even invents new flavors and varieties for Tama-ya, her family's mochi shop. School and growing up, on the other hand, are things that she's still trying to find the right recipe for. But with the help of her best friends Kanna and Midori, Tamako's determined to make the best of things.

It's complicated though, especially when it comes to emotions and her relationship with her best BOY friend Mochizo, whose family runs a rival mochi shop. And lately, Kanna's been feeling a little odd about her feelings towards Tamako as well. And what's with up with that strange bird fluttering around, the one that speaks fluent Japanese?

It's all very mysterious and overwhelming, but at least Tamako always has one thing she can count on: no matter if your day's been good or bad, there's certain to be something sugary and delicious waiting at the end of every adventure!


GOURMET GIRL GRAFFITI (Ages 14+)
Like many Japanese middle school girls, Ryo Machiko is fascinated with cooking. Unfortunately, both of her parents work full time overseas, so she's spent most of her time living alone since the death of her grandmother a year ago.

Ryo's still practicing and learning, of course, but without someone there to appreciate the fruit of her labors and offer constructive feedback, it's just not the same.

Things have a way of working out, however, and when it turns out that Ryo's artistically inclined cousin Kirin intends to attend the same Sunday cram school, it only makes sense for her to room with Ryo over the weekends. And that means that Ryo will be gaining more than just an enthusiastic new audience.

Together with Ryo's friend Shiina, she'll be learning the most important lesson of all: No matter how fancy or tasty the food may be, it's even better when it's shared in Gourmet Girl Graffiti!


GATCHAMAN CROWDS INSIGHT (Ages 14+)
You can't keep a good Gatchaman down, especially when a new organization called VAPE (short for Violent Ape) starts hijacking CROWDS technology.

The ensuing wave of "Red CROWDS" incidents targeting high profile targets like the Prime Minister make it clear that the good team needs to start recruiting; fast. Fortunately, help arrives quickly, and with a rather... loud entrance. The alien Gelsadra's ship crashes in a rice paddy in Nijima!

Besides being generally peaceful, Gelsadra has a unique power involving comic-book-like speech bubbles that display a person's inner feelings, rather like an emoji.

There's also the fireworks enthusiast, Tsubasa, whose life becomes the focus of millions of viewers when she's chosen as the newest Gatchaman - on nationwide live television!

As if that wasn't enough pressure for a teenage girl to handle, she's also assigned Hajime as her mentor!

Will she survive? Will the world survive? Things are about to get really wild and crazy in GATCHAMAN CROWDS INSIGHT!


WISH UPON THE PLEIADES (Ages 14+)
When Subaru goes to her local observatory to prepare for an upcoming meteor shower, she ends up seeing far more of the stars than she expected.

Instead of a simulated viewing of astronomical phenomena, she gets recruited to take part in a fantastic adventure with a mysterious young man, a bizarre alien creature, and a group of girls dressed in cute, magical garb. Together with the other girls (who are suddenly and strangely members of Subaru's school), Subaru becomes part of a clandestine effort to retrieve fragments of an alien spaceship! However, the fragments are being scattered all over the universe.

Time is limited, and the girls face a nemesis who is seeking to gather all the parts for himself! The space race is on, and the sky is no longer the limit as the legendary animation studio GAINAX sets Subaru's eyes on the stars in WISH UPON THE PLEIADES!


THE PERFECT INSIDER (Ages 17+)
For most people, finding a dead body on their vacation would mean the vacation is over. However, for Souhei Saikawa, a professor of architecture, and his student Moe Nishinosono, a math prodigy, it's a different kind of challenge.

Genius programmer Shiki Magata, one of Souhei's idols, is inexplicably murdered inside the sealed research lab she disappeared to after being found innocent of her parents' murder. As Souhei and Moe take the first steps into a deadly new world, they must untangle the complex web of events and clues leading up to the murder. With danger creeping up around them, this may be the last mystery this pair of human anomalies attempts to solve in THE PERFECT INSIDER!


PUNCH LINE (Ages 14+)
When your day begins with being held hostage in a hijacking, can things get much worse? How about being kicked out of your own body? Or learning that if you can't re-possess your physical shell, you'll trigger a panty-fueled apocalypse that will wipe out all life on the planet?

For Yuta Iridatsu, it's just the start of the worst out-of-body experience ever. Now, if his dissed disembodied spirit doesn't pursue the persuasions of a porn-obsessed paranormal pussycat and purloin a missing mystical manual, a meteor will collide with Earth!

And to stack the odds even further, the book is hidden somewhere in the boarding house Yuta shares with a bevy of beautiful babes, but if he gets an eyeful of his ravishing co-renters in their unmentionables before he's back in himself, it's flash-forward to Doomsday!

Will the literal end of the world be wearing briefs, a bikini, or a thong? Find out when panties, possessions and extinction level events have the ultimate rear-end collision in Punch Line!


TRINITY SEVEN (Ages 14+)
Things have been looking sunny for Arata Kasuga lately. Unfortunately it's been the wrong sun in the sky, and the mysterious Breakdown Phenomenon that accompanied it destroyed his town and stole his beloved cousin Hiijiri, leaving Arata in a fantasy world of his own creation!

There's still a chance to save her, however, as the appearance of the Black Sun also revealed Arata's potential abilities as a mage, placing him in the powerful Demon Lord class.

But first, since Arata and his newfound magical talents are far too dangerous to leave to their own devices, he's immediately whisked off to the Royal Biblia Academy. That's where he'll meet seven beautiful female mages whose powers are intrinsically tied to the same sins that Arata has to master to put his world back together.

Of course, the tricky part is that they have their own plans for him as well! The lessons in sin are about to begin as Arata takes on the Trinity Seven!


COBRA THE ANIMATION (Ages 17+)
There may be stronger and more ruthless guns for hire in the universe, but when it comes to sneakiness, nobody out-sneaks the space soldier of fortune known as Cobra. Who else would change his face and wipe his own memories to hide from former adversaries, then replace his arm with the ultimate holdout weapon?

Whether he's running from mechanical pterodactyls or trying to rescue a friend in need, Cobra never forgets the most important thing: scoring with pretty girls. Even though foiling the Pirate Guild, surviving avalanches, swimming with human-head sharks and fighting the crystalline killer Crystal Boy are all likely to take a few years off his life, one can't argue with the fact that these missions tend to involve damsels in distress in various stages of undress! Get ready to blast off, rip-off, and face-off as the action explodes in COBRA THE ANIMATION!


THE LABYRINTH OF GRISAIA (Ages 17+)
Yuji Kazami fulfilled a promise, but that promise was made long before he reached Mihama Academy. The seeds of the future are sown as young Yuji's family is ravaged and his psyche is shattered, only to be reshaped in the fires of violent training and war in The Labyrinth of Grisaia.
