In 1997, a small ragtag band of anime enthusiasts got together and started strumming around with their favorite musical instruments... only to discover a few years later they had the technical resources to pull off an amazing concert with cool instrumentals and vocals. The band is called 5XL, and they certainly XL at what they do best: singing, playing cool anime music, and entertaining their audience. And entertain they did, with a packed audience and large group of dancers in the sidelines grooving to the rich beat of popular j-pop anime tunes and waving light sticks and lighters around to soothing romantic melodies. With outstanding vocal and rhythm harmony, 5XL once again dominated the afternoon fan activities with their popular concert.
