OLDCODEX Musical Guest at Anime Central 2020



We now have multiple musical guests for Anime Central after this announcement. The rave is bound to be jumping!!

OLDCODEX is a Japanese band formed in 2009.  With a unique combination of vocalist Ta_2 and painter YORKE., OLDCODEX performs songs of rock and dance music elements while creating artistic visuals to please the eyes as well.

OLDCODEX has provided their songs to several hit anime titles including Free!, Free!: Eternal Summer, Free!: Dive to the Future, all 3 seasons and movies of Kuroko’s Basketball, God Eater, Servamp, and more.

Their band name OLDCODEX was created by combining the words “old” and “codex” to mean “an ancient manuscript”.  For the Japanese, rock music is considered borrowed from the West, but OLDCODEX wishes to create their distinctive style as is reflected in their name.  They are also known for their aggressive and inspiring live shows where YORKE.’s emotional paintings color the canvas in tune with Ta_2’s hard vocals.


Right after booking with Anime Central frontman Ta_2 announced his marriage to the greatly talented LiSA or Risa Oribe. The Anisong singer is known for the Demon Slayer opening and closing and also most of Sword Art Online’s opening theme songs.

This is OLDCODEX’s first appearance at a Midwest anime convention and at Anime Central! Anime Central is always known to have a great afterparty featuring great musical artist. Inviting Japanese talents to headline the afterparty is reason alone to get a ticket to Anime Central. Few conventions have the ability to bring this quality of talent so, get your tickets now!!
