4 years after its launch, the seiyuu + zombies + EDM project HANDEAD ANTHEM comes to an unexpected end.
NIZISTA announced on HANDEAD ANTHEM’s official website that, as of August 6, 2023, the project has come to an end.
Below is the official announcement:
Thank you very much for your continued support of “HANDEAD ANTHEM.” Since its project launch on July 26, 2019, we have been running the project with the support of many fans. However, we regret to inform you that the project will come to an end on August 6, 2023 (Sunday).
Throughout THE YEARS, we have pursued the concept of “male voice actors × zombies × EDM” and actively engaged in music, drama, live events, and more.
However, we faced various challenges, including the repeated postponement and cancellation of events due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the integration of other operating companies.
Despite considering external outsourcing for the project to continue, we concluded that providing events and music that would satisfy our fans in the future would be difficult.
As a result, we have made the decision to end the project.
We express our heartfelt gratitude to our valued FANS who have supported us. We deeply apologize for the suddenness of this announcement.”
Nizista adds that HANDEAD ANTHEM’s online presence – official website, YouTube channel, Twitter account, and streaming platforms – won’t change however, nothing will be getting updates in the future.
