And cry, with love
We're sure to forget
That the world which was dyed grey isn't real
Even if we keep sleeping and sleeping, morning doesn't come, so
Now, with this hand, let's turn the key
J-ROCK INVASION EPISODE I review:
(I could write more, but I'm tired)
SuG, the first band...
Even though they?re a fairly new band, they had already gained quite a fanbase in Germany (all their stuff got sold out and in front of the concert hall, everyone was in SuG mood). They were so cute! The atmosphere was amazing. As the first band, I can tell they had no trouble
making the audience all hawt! XP Everyone was smiling. The vocalist Takeru was so sweet, smiling all the time and doing this really cute choreography for LOVE SCREAM PARTY. He also spoke some German and English, since it wasn't that many who understood Japanese. Oh God, I am so in love in SuG after this <3
All 5 bands signed 5 posters (and a fan), and people who had bought something from the merchandise booth had a chance of winning one. But it all depended on the numbers they got with their purchase, which were drawn by the band members later.
Anyway, after SuG's live, Takeru and the guitarist Yuji came out for an interview. They said a lot of things, like, Takeru was afraid of the highways in Germany, Yuji would be eating soba on New Years Eve... and that they would like to play in Korea, 'cause they had a lot of fans there.
LOVE SCREAM PARTY
Then there was SCREW...
The curtains opened, and what do I see? Byou (the vocalist) in a GOLDEN outfit! Haha, it was lovely. Since SCREW was the band with the most hardcore music, they really made the fans bang their heads to the music, made people jump around. Byou did so much fanservice! It didn't take a long time for him before he had thrown his shirt to the ground and ran around groping himself. It was quite amusing, yes. He was a real nasty mother fucker... and I liked it XD
After the live, Byou and the drummer Jin came out again for an interview. They started out with kissing each other... silly boys. They had to explain why they have chosen the band name SCREW, and why purple was an important color for the band. They said, that there's those things you don't know how to say, how to get out... things there are hard to explain. And they thought those words were the color purple. And then something about how you couldn't describe the word screw.
Haha, Byou took one of the numbers he pulled out of the bag, and shoved the number down his pants. Then the interviewer was all: "can the winner of the poster also get the number?". Byou really lost his hardcore attitude there XD He also stuffed another number into Jin's mouth. Go SCREW!
The next band was Kra...
I had really looked forward to see those guys, I think they are amazing. They almost had me crying doing their live, since Keiyuu's voice is so great and their music is wonderful.
When the curtains opened, Yasuno (the drummer) was standing there all diva-ish with a rose in his mouth. Yasuno is so good at handling drumsticks, he's got some crazy moves, I can tell you that. But he dropped one of his drumsticks at some point, and a staff come running with it. Oh, and Keiyuu hit Mai (the guitarist) with the microphone, poor guy. Seemed like it hurt. And the microphone didn't like it either. Mai... what has happened with innocent, cute little Mai? He was running around, tearing his shirt, showing us his chest all the time, licking his guitar. Keiyuu... that such a small man can have such a great voice. And growl so intensively. I was surprised.
Kra did some really nice choreographies, I really liked them. They spoke so much Japanese, it was nice.
Keiyuu and Yuura (bassist) came out for the interview. Keiyuu said he loved to play Monster Hunter 2 on his PSP. Go him, I've been playing that for a month now XD Yuura said that he wanted to play in Germany again, and that there where lots of cute girls.
So it was alice nine.'s turn...
They stepped out on the stage all wearing white (NICE) outfits. Saga (the bassist) was showing a lot of skin... again. Not that I mind.
Shou (vocalist) danced a lot, it was so fun to see. When I saw them in Osaka, Shou danced a little, but then he became kinda embarrassed. But it wasn't like that this time, he danced around on that stage like a crazy person. I had missed doing alice nine.'s choreographies, it really brought back memories. But I think I was like the only person capable of doing the choreographies right. W00t! Tora (guitarist) rocked, as usual, Saga was kinda in the back, Nao (drummer) was so sweet, and Shou and Hiroto (guitarist) where really cute together.
All the bands played some old songs, since it wasn't a live to promote the bands, just an event. It made it all special, and I was so happy to be able to see that old songs live.
Tora and Shou came out for the interview. They were asked which lesson they liked in school. Shou said he loved Japanese, but that he was an arse to math. Tora loved sport... and all other lessons sucked XD Then they talked about what kind of music they liked.
High color naru rinbukyoku
And the last band, Kagrra...
It was so amazing, seeing Kagrra live. They've been moving away from the traditional Japanese music a bit, so I was truly amazed when the curtains opened and they stood there, all wearing stunning kimonos. Their music... you can really feel they've tried this before, they were breathtaking. Isshi (the vocalist) has the most feminine moves I've ever seen. So elegant, I'm envious. The whole stage performance was so beautiful. I loved that they also played some really old songs.
Isshi spoke A LOT of German. He had this whole piece of paper, and then he just started reading it out loud. He was actually pretty good, it was only once that the audience didn't quite get what he was saying. But it was very cute. They played a song which had not yet been published in Japan. It was very great, I'll buy the single when it gets out.
Then for the interview, it was Isshi and Nao (the bassist). They said they wanted to play in Germany again, a one-man. Nao also said that the German fans were very cute... and that the girls where beautiful. Isshi told us that New Years Eve would be the first day off for him this year. Argh, poor busy J-rockers XD Nao was so cute and all "rock n' roll", you just have to love that guy.
