Southern California anime convention Anime Expo announced a selection of the cast from Idolm@ster: Cinderella Girls will preform as part of the Anisong World Matsuri* concert on June 30.
Premier badge holders can already buy tickets, but general attendees can purchase theirs on May 3. Ticket link is here.
- Lodge: $45
- Orchestra: $65
- VIP: $130 (also an invitation to a “Special Goodbye” event. Kind of an ominous title for fans to see performers…)
Cindere participants in the concert include: Asami Takano (Frederica Miyamato), Haruka Yoshimura (Mika Jougasaki), Hiromi Igarashi (Anzu Futaba), Rei Matsuzaki (Kirari Moroboshi), Tomoyo Kurosawa (Miria Akagi), and Yuuko Iida (Kanade Hayami).
- Decoration (凸レーション): Kirari Moroboshi, Miria Akagi, Rika Jougasaki
- Familia Twin (ファミリア ツ イン): Mika Jougasaki, Rika Jougasaki
- LiPPS: Mika Jougasaki, Frederica Miyamato, Kanade Hayami, Shiki Ichinose, Syuko Shiomi
- Ankira is the only complete unit with Anzu Futaba and Kirari Moroboshi.

This is a big splash for Imas fans attending Anime Expo. Aside from a fan panel and cosplay gatherings, this was what we had to resort to in lieu of an actual concert:
