The expo features music, movies, anime, and many other form of asian entertainment from the heart of Japan. After being casted as Reira the vocalist of "Trapnest," Olivia was invited to PMX.
Since it was Olivia's first live in her second home country, she was really looking forward to the performance. With advance ticket sales, about 2000 fans came to see her!
