ReceptionEdit

The London concert received positive reviews. Writing for MCM Buzz, Kay Ibrahim described the concert as "thoroughly pleasing" and that fans were "swimming in an ocean of nostalgia" during the opening pieces. Ibrahim also praised Tanaka's enthusiasm and the multiple encores, but said that there were "some missed opportunities" and pointed out that the audience was "either reluctant or embarrassed" to sing along during Bink's Sake[5]. Joshawott of Anime UK News commented that the concert was an introduction to live music for most of the audience, and described moments of the concert as "almost magical" as well as "[catching] the audience off-guard with more heart-wrenching moments". Joshawott did, however, criticize the anime projection for being noticeably out of sync with the orchestra[4]. ‎Kurunandan Jain also wrote a positive review for Japan Curiosity, calling it a "truly a magical and amazing experience" and noting that several audience members were crying during the scene of Merry's funeral[11].
