Anime composer Yuki Hayashi will be a guest at Otakon 2022, according to Otakorp Inc. His works will be part of the Sun and Stars concert on July 31, 2022, with both a chamber orchestra and a rock band playing songs arranged by the composer. The Sun and Stars Otakon Anime Concert will include works from Inuyasha, Haikyu!!, My Hero Academia, and more.

Yuki Hayashi was born in Kyoto in 1980. He was a competitor in rhythmic gymnastics, where the task of selecting the music got him into the world of music. In college, he started composing music without formal training. After college, Yuki learned the basics of track making from Hideo Kobayashi and started his career by composing music for various competitive dances. From his experience as a rhythmic dancer, he derived a unique style, where the emphasis is on the unity between the music and the visual.

His main titles include My Hero Academia, Haikyu!!, One Piece Film Gold, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, Death Parade, Gundam Build Fighter series, Pokemon, Shaman King, and Run with the Wind.

Otakon will be held from July 29-31, 2022 in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.
