Concert: Hideo

In room Events 1.
AOD 2015 is pleased to welcome Team Hideo—the group behind Hideo - A Theatrical Concert of Music from Japanese Animation and Video Games—back for their fifth year at the con!
What is Hideo?  Hideo is a story expressed through both musical and dramatic performance—a “theatrical concert”—featuring music from Japanese animated series and video games.  What started six years ago as just an idea has grown into a full-blown stage production involving over thirty passionate and talented musicians and actors from all over the San Francisco Bay Area and the rest of California. Each member of the ensemble is a self-proclaimed video game, music, and/or anime fan, and it’s this collective passion that serves as the foundation and heart of every Hideo performance. All musical pieces are unique arrangements, allowing Hideo to stay true to the source material the fans love—music from Super Mario Bros., Cowboy Bebop, Final Fantasy, Zelda, and much, much more—while fitting each piece into the context of their original story.
Hideo has been on stage for FanimeCon in San Jose, California and PAX Prime in Seattle, Washington, and the group has produced a 4-track studio EP, Songs from The Shiny Mug, and a 5-track live EP, An Evening at The Shiny Mug. They also release original anime and game music arrangements along with the sheet music via their YouTube channel every two weeks.

Also categorized as Gaming.

If you love seeing video games played with speed, skill, and humor, speedrunning is for you. The concept of a speedrun is simple: players try to use every trick in the book (and some that were never in any book) to beat their favorite games in record times. If you've never seen The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time beaten in 18 minutes, or Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island completed in 2 hours, then you owe it to yourself to check out these performances! 

AOD is proud to host some of the leading voices in speedrunning: Trihex, Romscout, Spikevegeta, and more of your favorite speedrunning personalities are here to discuss their craft, share stories from the Awesome Games Done Quick charity marathons, and show off their well-honed skills!

Our Performers


Romscout is one of the premier ambassadors of the speedrunning community, serving both as the charity events manager at Twitch and as the event director of Games Done Quick. He specializes in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, but he's known for letting down his hair and playing such legendary games as Lifeline and Ninja Baseball Bat Man.


Trihex is one of the best showmen in the business, known for his slick Yoshi's Island tricks as well as his smooth Jet Set Radio stylings—not to mention his occasional flashes of the gun show.


The velvety voice of Spikevegeta is a staple of every Awesome Games Done Quick marathon. When he's not reading donations or providing couch commentary, he can be found practicing his many speedruns and his trash talk at the same time. From Kingdom Hearts to Rayman to Final Fantasy, his shows are not to be missed!
