I haven’t posted concert notes or reports in years, but I find myself having a lot of time today so let’s talk about NEWS and their QUARTETTO Tour.

I didn't write up a report, but I did take notes.  And even more ghetto, this isn't even going to be a post of notes that I've typed up.  Here are scans of my notebook.  I apologize for any mistakes.

Matori, Ota, and Senzaki went to watch this show.  I'll admit here that I might have watched Kanju (read as Matori) more than Kisumai at this show, but really, I'm a Kisumai fan.  I just liked seeing how Kanju reacted to Kisumai, so that's a lot of what these notes are about.  And lots of Matori fanboying Kusumoto who was backdancing for Kisumai. :x 

Ghetto notes away~! )
talisa_ahn: (Matori - Kanji)
I went to see Sexy Zone's concert today in Umeda, knowing that Kanju would be there and really hoping that Matori would too.  SUCCESS.  Matori was there AND he changed his hair.  It's brown now, slightly permed and kinda looks like a mushroom, but yay!  No more black!  Overall, I actually did enjoy the concert.  I didn't pay much attention to the SZ members, but the songs and set list were good.  (*´◡`)

One of my New Year's Resolutions is to write up notes/reports on all cons I go to this year, but since I now have a huge headache, I'm just here to say who I saw at SZ today.  'Cause that's what I do when I see Kanju... I take attendance.

Aぇ少年  - ◯ all there
Little Gangs - No clue since I don't know who's in Little Gangs.  If someone knows, please tell me!  Did see Sanda though.
Gang Star - △ Saw Jo, Imae, Takumi, and Kazuya. I hear Nairu was there, but I didn't see him.  Definitely no Atsushi. 
Jr.BOYS BEST - △ Matori, Ota, Kusumoto, Richard, Negoro, Satsuki.  No Goku or Ryoya.  Did Goku quit?  Sounds like there's a rumor that Uemura said that Ryoya didn't quit, so I'm going to hold onto that and hope I get to see him soon.
Jr.BOYS SP - △ Uemura, Koga, Kihara, Suezawa, Kodama, Haruki, Masaya, Okamura, and Mishima.  Didn't see Murata. 

Also saw: Toda, Fukumoto, Maruyama, Takada, Fukui, Iwamoto, Kawakishi, and Kotegawa.
Didn't see: Kitada (I think he quit), Yasui, Lenon... Didn't see Junya, but I hear he was there.

As I sit here in the dark, waiting for SOMEONE to wake up, I thought I'd type up my notes from last night's show.  Not a full on report.  Might save that for tonight's show (or Hiroshima's).  It'll depend on how the show turns out and all that.  Our seats were 2nd row stands, block B6.

Remember, I'm a Kitayama fan, so a lot of the time, I know what he's doing, but not necessarily what the others are.

There were hot pants and it was REALLY bad... )

I tried to get everything out... but it still feels like there aren't enough words. This is really for me to have, but feel free to read if you'd like.

And they thought the 全国ツアー was gonna be their big news )


And this is just the beginning. Never before have those lyrics in Tension held so much meaning to me.
talisa_ahn: (Default)
Tonight was my last concert of the summer.  Matchy's 30th Anniversary Tour.  And before anyone says anything about Matchy being old, SHH!  I KNOW.  At the moment he's twice my age, but I've liked him for years so I still think he's damned kakkoii.  I finally got to hear him sing Midnight Shuffle and Mezamero Yasei live, as well as Zambara, both versions.  Won't lie, I prefer Mitsu's version, but that's a totally biased opinion and I'm well aware of that. 

Just for the Osaka shows, guitar legend and former Johnny's Nomura Yoshio came to perform.  Back in the 80's, Matchy, Yocchan and one other person were grouped together.  From what I understand, they weren't an official Johnny's unit, but were in the first Kinpachi Sensei together.  Yocchan left Johnny's in 1990, but some of you might know one of the songs he's written and composed.  Kanjani8's 一秒KISS anyone?  Yep.  It's so entertaining to see someone with Matchy at his own level instead of a sempai/kouhai thing.  Yocchan made his own uchiwa that said マッチ on one side, and ぼくもよろしく on the other.  haha... He was using it to fan himself while Matchy talked.  But yeah.  Because Yocchan was there, I got to hear the best acoustic version of アンダルシアに憧れて ever!  Just Matchy, Yocchan on a slack key guitar, and a single violinist. 

Anyway.  Summer's coming to a close which is probably for the best.  This summer was expensive!  And not just because of the concerts and butai (12 of them), but just in general, I'm in the city more so I've been shopping. 

*yawn*  I guess I'm not updating my last post about the Kanju butai, nor am I writing fic tonight.  Off to bed.  G'night~!
talisa_ahn: (Default)
I went to see 少年たち〜格子無き牢獄 for my second and last time today and was heavily relieved to find that I enjoyed it a lot more this time around.  It probably has a little to do with the fact that I already know the story and didn't need to take the time to figure that out, but overall, they were better into their roles.  I felt somewhat detached the first time I saw it, but this time, I felt like I was pulled in.  Teared twice.

Also turns out that there are a few songs that I really like.  Akito and Kamiyama's duet for example.  I think last time I was so preoccupied by the songs that I didn't like that I forgot about the ones that I did.

Highlights from today's show. )

Too tired.  Will finish tomorrow.   (u.u)..zZ

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!  <--Ok. Pretty please click on this one? It's really ugly as a hatchling. >.<  Hmm... I'm not sure what to make of it as an adult either.  haha...      

I've been distracted.  Went to see Kanju's butai for the first time last night.  I'm gonna be honest... I don't know how EbiKisu will do.  The play itself sucks.  You can really tell that that thing is OLD.  The music?  Not my thing.  What makes the Kanju one entertaining are the improvised sections and the little things here and there.  They added this part for the three Muro's and it's pretty funny and I suppose it actually has a role in the storyline, but I don't know how it'll be changed for EbiKisu.  I dunno...  Maybe if we knew how much of what Kanju did is actually supposed to be in there and how much Kanju made theirs.  Bethany and I were trying to figure out who will take over which roles and we just couldn't figure it out.  MAYBE Taipi will do Akito's?  And now that I think about it, maybe Kitayama will do Shige's, but it's all really hard to imagine. 

Kikuoka was DAMNED CUTE.  It's nice to have the chance to be reminded once in a while why I liked him so much.

Matori has one, count it, ONE line in the butai.  haha...  Jr. Boys were busy rehearsing for Takki and now I know why Reiya wasn't in Takki... he's actually one of the main characters.  Let's see...  The guards were basically Veteran and for a little bit I saw Ota in the uniform too and laughed cause that was his role last year too.  The prisoners were 7WEST, BAD, BOYS, Reiya, and Senzaki.  Koji comes in later as Hama-chan's kouhai that Hama-chan kinda screws over.  haha...

During Showtime though, Jr. Boys were in practically everything.  Matori's said that Go (Veteran's new song) is his favorite and honestly, I might have been able to tell without him saying it.  He always looks like he's having the time of his life when he's out there dancing, but there was just something more when he was doing this song.  Oh.  And Go has hand motions now.  A little fast, but manageable.  Veteran's outfits had colors and they were different from the ones used in Yokocho's solo con.  Kunta's purple (sorry Rachel), Bun is magenta, Kiku is light pink, Ito is blue, Ryuta is green, and Muro is yellow.

I'll take more notes later, but for now, dragons?  Please?  Thanks!

I haven't really been posting as much as I should and have, yet again, let things build up on me.

[concert notes] Tackey Summer Concert 2010 (100731, 大阪城ホール)
Ok.  Here are my notes on Saturday's Takki concert.  Won't call it a report since I won't be able to comment on all of the songs... It's a little difficult for me, seeing as how I don't know the titles to most of Takki's songs.  Warning now... I do sometimes write some of my notes in Japanese.  I try to write the translations next to them, but sometimes I forget.  Also, I think this turned out to be about Kanju at Takki's concert.  Sorry Snowman fans... I mention them (like Sanada's FAIL at getting audience participation), but it's mostly about Kanju.

Like I said before, I wasn't planning on going to see Takki here in Osaka.  I'm going to see the concert in Yokohama and honestly saw no point in going until I had Rachel next to me to tell me who's who in MSM.  She's been trying to get me to at least be able to tell the Snowmen apart for about 8 months now.  But then at the Kanju concerts, Akito mentioned that the "Chibiko Kanju" would be backing at Takki's concerts this weekend and that sorta made me think that maybe going would be worth it.  Still wasn't going to go though cause it was too late to get a ticket off of ticket.co.jp... but then Rachel said someone online had extra tickets.  Anyway.  Ended up going to the concert with [livejournal.com profile] jin_rabu  and had an awesome time.

Our seats were 16th row on the left side of the stage.  After being in Osaka-Jo Hall for Kanju's cons it was a little surprising to see a proper stage.  Have I ever mentioned how low budget Kanju are?  'Cause they really, REALLY are.  All those special effects they got to use at their concerts, I understand now were because Takki was gonna be using them.

I'm really not sure where to start, so for now, I'm just gonna type, probably out of order... and also c/p from my online conversations with [livejournal.com profile] snowqueenofhoth  and [livejournal.com profile] murasaki_anna  'cause I'm lazy.  It did turn out to be a lot longer than I thought it would.

It got long... )

30 Days J-pop Meme
I've been really bad about keeping up with this.  I'm just going to follow Raras's example and just keep going in order and not make a catch-up post.  Wow.  Did I really only get up to Day 4 before stopping?  Fail.

Day 5: Your favorite j-drama actress
My favorite without a doubt is Horikita Maki.  Adored her and her short boy hair in Hanazakari no Kimitachi e and totally loved her kick-ass attitude in Tokujo Kabachi.  2nd place is Kitagawa Keiko.

Other than that, CONGRATULATIONS TO KIRA on getting her internship in Japan for this fall!  *throws confetti*  I'm really happy that you'll be coming back soon!  ^-^

Here are my notes for the 100725 KaT-TUN in Tokyo Dome concert. Again. I'm a Kisumai fan. I don't pay a ton of attention to KaT-TUN. Also, I started to write this yesterday (Monday), but then I got distracted and didn't finish. If the wording/time references get weird as you read, I apologize.

Things I forgot about the 100724 Show )

Ok.   Stuff from last night's (100725) concert. I considered writing an entire report, and I still might, but for now, here are my notes.  We were 2nd row arena this time.  Rachel posted a picture from our seats on her lj here.  And like last time, I'll update this as I remember things.
Notes for the 100725 Concert )

Adopt one today!

UEDA'S SOLO - Marie Antoinette (.mp3 links and lyrics)
I typed out the lyrics this morning. This thing was written and composed by Ueda... IN ENGLISH. They're crazy and ridiculous lyrics, but I absolutely loved the performance and this song. He said Sunday was his last time performing it for the tour.  He also blew out our eardrums with fireworks towards the end.

If anyone else can help me fill the [ ] in, lemme know. )
talisa_ahn: (Kitayama - FAIL)
Here are some notes from last night's concert.  They're really more for my reference than anything else and are not in the greatest of order, but if you'd like, feel free to read.  Kitayama fell off the stage so the first part is really just about that.

We were 4th row Arena on the right hand side of the stage.

[Concert Notes] KaT-TUN World Tour 2010 with Kis-My-Ft2 (Tokyo Dome, 100724) )
talisa_ahn: (Kisumai - Walking)
I figure that since I spent all that time writing a novel of a Concert Report for the Yokohama shows, I can just write the stuff that's different from here on out.  Here are some of my notes from the Hiroshima concert yesterday. 

It's short, but this is what I got written down on the train ride home.  Again, I warn that I'm a Kitayama fan and that these are just notes, meaning that things are not explained in detail.  If you see something you'd like to know more about, feel free to ask.  ^_^

Read more... )
talisa_ahn: (Kisumai - Walking)
These are just some notes about last night's concert.  I was mostly watching Kitayama, so just warning you now.  These are just notes and not a report and really incomplete 'cause I don't have time right now to finish them.  But if you're interested, feel free to have a look.

We had Center seats, closer to the middle pathway. )
