  1. I haven't seen Vivarush in FOREVER, but it seems like they're doing pretty well! I wish I had been able to go to their one coin tour T_T Their one-coin tour final will be at Shinsai Bashi soma on August 27th! Details: Date: August 27, 2017 (sunday Location: Shinsaibashi soma Time:OPEN 17:00 / START 17:30 Tickets:ADV ¥500 / DOOR ¥500 (plus drink charge) If you spend 3,000 yen or more on merch you can get a 2shot or 6shot with the band! Also, I guess if you've been to their other lives on this tour and have received a ticket for a free cheki you can use that ticket at the live as well! You can use one ticket for each venue you've been to on this tour, so if you've been to 5 different venues and have 5 different free cheki tickets, you can get five toujitsu cheki.
  2. SHeepSLeep has just announced that Ba. 海琉 (Kairu) will join Takashi in leaving the band after their oneman on 2017/08/25.
  3. Anfiel has released a special 3rd anniversary site! http://anfiel.tokyo/3rd-anniversary/ They'll be posting special videos and other content that can only be seen on this site! There is a fan vote as well! You can vote for your favorite song or songs you want to hear (one vote per day). The poll results will be released on 9/30 at their one-man live at Shibuya REX! Their set list will be decided based on the poll results (the poll is open from 8/19 20:00~9/28 23:59) Also, I'm loving their new look <3
  4. They all posted pictures literally right after I posted my live experience lol. And in Miyuu's tweet he said he'll continue singing. I'm so glad he's not going to disappear. I'm not sure what Leo's going to do.. he hasn't said anything one way or the other... but I hope Miyuu, Leo and Yusuke come back to form a new band together >< Anyway, here's some pics from the other night! That last picture is too perfect <3 I miss them so much already T_T
  5. I went to see Dangan's last live the other night. I still can't believe it's over T_T I was kind of waiting to see if any of them were going to post any more pictures from last night, but it doesn't look like they will for a while (if at all) so I'll just go ahead and post about the live. Here's the set list: Before they started there was a screen down behind the drumset and they introduced each member. The first picture would be their current artist photo, the next screen was 4 images of their different looks throughout the years, the next screen was video clips of those four looks, and the member would come out during that at some point.. I think during the video screen? All the fans were like OMG! Cos the members used to look REALLY different and I think it was really nostalgic for the long-time fans. <3 言イ訳モラトリアムwas an excellent way to start this live. There was literally no time to even think about being sad once this song played and it really set the tone for the live overall. I'll probably say this about 90% of Dangan's songs, but this is definitely one of my favorite songs from them. <3 When the intro to last resort started playing, I think it hit me that this was it. I almost started crying but then the song started picking up and I managed to hold it back haha I love how Miyuu directs us in moshing during this song as if he's the conductor and we're the orchestra haha he'll dramatically sweep his arm across towards kamite as we all jump that way and then send us back shimote <333 I fucking love his energy and he always looks like he's really enjoying every single second on stage. I love how much they all interact with each other in general. Miyuu will go up to all of them and make eye contact, sing at them or put his arm around them. He'll even go to the back and hang out with Yusuke a lot too. They all seem so close and like they really enjoy each other's company and love playing together <333 I fucking love 失声已む無く! The beat of this song.. The rhythm? The something of this song is exactly what I love. It's like slowerish and steady and fucking perfect. Ugghh <33333333 I really cannot with Dangan music. I don’t get why more people don't fucking love this band. More like I don't know why the fuck it took me so long to fall so in love with this band T___T I'm so so sooooo glad that I did. Okay so I think this will end up being SUPER long if I keep going through song by song haha I wish everyone could experience Dangan live T_T They're so fucking good. Like I love their music recorded. But it's even better live. No question. I feel like Leo has some of the best guitar solos in vk. Like… a lot of vk songs the guitar solo sounds like it was composed separately and they just threw it in there cos they know they should have a guitar solo at that part of the song, but Leo's solos really suit each song. Sometimes they're slower to match the melody more, sometimes he shreds like crazy, but it always just matches the song SO well. Like his solos make me want to cry sometimes haha <3333 In メランコリィ they extended the drum and guitar solos. Well, not extended, but there was more back and forth. Like usually it's drum solo, bass solo, short guitar solo, short drum solo, long guitar solo. But this time it felt longer. Okay, actually I'm not sure if they went back and forth more times than usual or if the solos were just longer, but it felt kind of like a guitar/drum battle within the song itself. It was really cool! <3 Before Reminiscence, they brought the big screen down (they brought it down and put it up a few times throughout the live) and showed some clips on it. I think it was similar clips to the song preview when they posted preview clips of Muzzle on Youtube. That, plus Miyuu singing those lyrics made me cry like a fucking baby. It doesn't usually make me cry, but I was definitely crying this time T___T I think pretty much all of the slower songs made me cry tonight haha (you can see the clip for Reminiscence here: Reminiscence starts from 3:08) Beginning was a good change of pace to prevent us all from breaking down completely haha I REALLY LOVE BEGINNING AND TICK-TACK!!! They're so fucking fun live! I mean, I love the songs in general, but live is amazing <3 Bullet was definitely an EXCELLENT last single all around. If you haven't bought it yet, you should. It's worth it. Bullet, Beginning and Tick-Tack are all REALLLLLYYYY good <3333 I'm also really glad I got to hear Damn it!! It's one of my favorite songs from them, but they don't play it live as often… or maybe I'm just unlucky and they didn't play it at the lives I went to haha I want to say that there was a piano intro for I'll Sing, but maybe I'm just thinking of Reminiscence… but I thought it was a different intro than usual and I'm pretty sure it was for a song that was more upbeat and didn't usually have a piano intro cos there was a definite contrast when the song kicked into gear.. I'M SORRY I CAN'T REMEMBER THINGS WELL I WAS CRYING SO MUCH T_T In any case, Miyuu said he started thinking of the lyrics for I'll Sing (okay I think it was I'll Sing… I'm starting to doubt that memory as well T_T Sorry if I'm remembering wrong.) after their very first oneman and that it's a really important song to him and the band <3 Not many people there tonight had gone to that apparently lol he asked who was at their first oneman and almost no one raised their hand haha ソノ嘘ホントis literally the song that got me into Dangan. I remember I had seen Dangan sometime before and wasn't impressed so I wasn't expecting much from them. I was literally holding my beer in one hand and kind of just bobbing along with whatever first song they played, but by the end of the song I realized I really liked their sound and when ソノ嘘ホント started I really wanted to join in so I chugged the rest of my beer, put my cup down and went crazy haha all those memories and thoughts flashed through my head when they started playing it tonight. I'm always SUPER excited when I hear the intro for this song, but this time it was like a bittersweet excitement. I definitely had tears in my eyes while trying to smile haha Ending their set with Bullet was so perfect. Everything about this song is perfect. Leo's guitar solo in this song is AMAZING. He came and stood on the box center stage for his solo and everyone saku'd him <333 I'm soooo glad his arm healed in time for him to play their last few lives and this last oneman. It wouldn't have been Dangan without Leo. I think it was during this song too that Chika, Miyuu and Leo came up on the center box together <3 I fucking love these guys T_T I don’t remember which one, but during one of the songs there was some kind of trouble so they stalled before the next song. Miyuu complained that Leo was late a lot recently. Apparently they were supposed to meet today at 11 but Leo didn't show up till 12:30 hahah apparently Leo looked at the schedule wrong and thought he didn't have to be there until 12:30 but he had looked at the wrong name on the time table lol. But then apparently Miyuu is late to rehearsals all the time so Leo was giving him shit for that lol but Miyuu was like 'okay yeah I'm late to rehearsals, but I'm never late to lives!!" oh and Miyuu said when Leo calls him when he's late, his voice is really scary so he stopped answering the phone and would just wait for his LINE message instead or something like that lol Leo on the other hand, is never late to rehearsals but is ALWAYS late to lives haha lolol Miyuu said there was one time they were supposed to meet at 12, but Leo came like 12:10-12:15 and was running up to them like "oh sorry, I thought we were meeting at 12:30" and Miyuu was like "THERE'S NO WAY YOU THOUGHT THAT! You're always at LEAST 10 minutes late! If you had thought 12:30 you'd have been even later!!!!" lolololol and apparently one time Chika was like super late to rehearsals and he woke up and was like "shit!! I'm late!!" But then "wait. Why didn't anyone even try calling me??" Hahaha and Miyuu laughed and was like "yeah we just practiced without you" ahaha they just assumed he was sleeping and were like meh whatever haha but Chika was kind of hurt that no one bothered to check on him haha Miyuu was like 寂しかったでしょう?? And Chika was like 寂しかった *sad face* hahaha For the encore they just walked out and started playing 自分定義 without saying much. This is when I REALLY lost it. Up until the encore I was kind of tearing up, crying a bit, but pulling myself together by the end of whatever song they were playing. I think it all hit me again with this song. Like it's almost over. When this encore finishes, it's the end. I couldn't even look at the stage I was crying so hard. I was crying intensely all the way up until halfway through Leo's solo for this song haha then I just saku'd him while looking down and crying T___T my friend and I shared a look and I just shook my head at her, towel to my face, like "I cannot." When the song finished, Miyuu had them take turns saying a few words one by one. Yusuke started. Earlier in the live when they were having technical trouble, apparently the pedal for his brass drum broke, a pretty rare thing to happen for drummers. He said the people backstage said something like since its Dangan's last live, it was also his drum's last beat kind of thing and Miyuu was like "whoa. They said something really cool! But it broke kind of too early.. would've been perfect if it had happened during the last song" haha Yusuke also said that he's thinking optimistically and that he'll definitely continue playing the drums <3 Chika said that he said he noticed back stage that his lips had gone completely white like his foundation smeared on them or something and he was super embarrassed. He was like "when an ikemen throws to look cool but his makeup is messed up it's really embarrassing!" And Leo was like "well you're not even an ikemen so you have nothing to worry about. Nothing about you is cool." Ahahah so harsh!! And Yusuke piped up and was like "I think you're ikemen" haha But then Chika got a bit serious and said he wanted Dangan to be a band he could be proud of. He didn't join Dangan with the intent of just playing in a band as a hobby so it was really painful for him to leave. And he kept saying how he wants Dangan to be a band he could be really proud of, up until the very last second of the very last song they play T_T Honestly I can't really remember what Leo and Miyuu said. By then I was just crying. I just remember Leo was really sad T_T Leo said something about wanting to continue making music. Miyuu was choking up when he was talking. Oh. And he said this was a band he had thought could really go far. So for him I think this disbandment really hurts. When they started Graffiti, Miyuu kind of stood on the box and plopped down on it before he started singing. And for some reason that made me lose it haha. I was crying that entire song while doing furi haha I felt pretty ridiculous. There's parts of the song where you hold hands and step-hop to the right then back to the left so I couldn't even like hold my towel to my face haha. There's also this build up in the song and then a slight pause, but for the live the pause was a longer than usual. Miyuu might've yelled something, I can't remember I was such a mess, but when they started playing again streamers blasted from the ceiling. During the song Miyuu was like THIS IS THE LAST TIME!! LET ME HEAR YOUR VOICES!!! And everyone screamed through their tears. It was really fucking intense. Everyone was a mess, crying and yelling our hearts out to the band. After experiencing this song at this live, I'll never listen to it the same way again. Chika, Miyuu and Leo came to the center box again and hugged each other and I just cannot. This song killed me even more because in the background they had a fucking slideshow of all the pictures of all the members from when they first started up until now scrolling down like a waterfall of emotions behind them. Miyuu said the last song they were gonna play was super important to him and the band and the fans. I wasn't sure what song they'd play last, and then the intro to ソノ嘘ホント played. I fucking lost it haha. Let me tell you, headbanging and crying at the same time is the weirdest thing. I haven't done that since FoLLoW haha <333 ソノ嘘ホント is definitely one of my favorite songs. Without this song I might not have fallen in love with Dangan as much as I did. Which is weird cos I definitely objectively love all of their music. There's literally only like two songs that took a little while to grow on me so I really don't know why I hadn't been following Dangan since forever ago T____T In any case. I love this song. I love this band. I can't believe they're finished. T____________T Oh and during this song, Miyuu tried to make Chika sing I think, but Chika didn't haha cos he's too shy, but Miyuu got Yusuke to sing a few lines of the chorus!! <333333 After the last song they all came to the front and Miyuu was gonna have everyone say their last words and he was gonna start with Chika but Chika was bawling so he started with Leo. They all just kind of said thank you one last time >< As they were all walking off stage they threw their water bottles, picks, and drumsticks into the crowd. Miyuu looked right at me like "you ready?" and tossed his water bottle at me, but it fell short and the girl RIGHT in front of me caught it T_T lol oh well. Miyuu also tossed out two towels. The girl in front of me caught one of those as well. I guess I was standing in the wrong row haha After the encore we tried to get a second encore, but the staff told us we couldn't. I was pretty impressed. It was a relatively loud encore call even though most of us were standing in line for buppan haha. One thing I realized belatedly was that they didn't take a last photo with everyone. I'm kind of surprised and a little sad they didn't. I hope they don't regret not taking that last photo. But I guess they were all kind of sad and no one was really thinking about it I'm so glad I met Dangan. As dramatic as this sounds and even though I'm sure I've said this about other bands, it holds just as true for Dangan... my life would NOT be the same if I had not found this band. I fucking love them and their music so much T___T and they seem well-loved by other bands as well. So many bandmen were tweeting them and there were a bunch of them standing in the back and I'm sure there were some on the second floor. I saw Miyuu waving to them up on the second floor and acknowledging all the bandmen who came to support them <3 Hirohiro (ex. ViV) tweeted after the live and said that it's sad that they won't be the same band anymore, but that he hopes that they'll come back in some form or another. <3 I hope they come back too!! ^ Dangan with Jack Caper
  6. Wasn't sure if I should post this here or in the 'last concert you went to' thread... but I'll just post it here lol I went to LAGLESS's last live the other night and I'm really glad I did! It's a shame that their last live wasn't a oneman, but I think it worked out well as the finale for their 2man tour with Unfate. The venue felt full and it seemed like most people were getting into it and enjoying themselves so I was really happy to see that. It would've been kind of devastating if people were just standing there looking bored for their last live. Dog and Rei got emotional during the MCs. During one MC Dog didn't even bother talking and just yelled KOE to get us to yell, but most people were crying by then so they couldn't yell >< but then before the next song? the last song? I forget, but the last MC Dog said it was the last time, and before people couldn't yell because everyone was all emotional, but to yell this time, and everyone did <3 He looked super pleased <3 or I guess, more bittersweet since it was the last time T_T I forget which MC it was, but Sakura and Rei talked about how close they have gotten even though they've only know each other for a couple of years. And apparently Sakura and Dog have known each other for a pretty long time now. They all seem really close <3 Sakura was really thankful towards the members and fans. He also said he hopes that some day in the future, even if they all have different bands, if they could get together again and do another Lagfes at EDGE. <3 Rei said that he doesn't plan to continue with any band activities. If it happens, it happens, but it's not in his plans as of now. He was getting kind of choked up and started just rambling and at one point was even "do you guys understand what I'm trying to say?" and after a while he even forgot what point he was trying to make haha I don't know their songs as well as other bands, so I can't really remember their set list, but they had really high energy the whole live and it was definitely worth going. I'm really glad I went. Dog's good at getting people to go up for gyakudai or to jump if they don't wanna go up. He'll look at you and connect with you and it feels as though he's singing to you or only sees you for those few seconds. I do remember that the last song they played was "Ending story." I think it really hit me when Dog said the song title before they started playing it. Like, "this is really the end" kind of feeling. It was a really appropriate last song I think. When they came out for the encore, Dog was hiding something under his coat. Apparently before the live he went to some UFO catchers (crane game?) and got like 5 stuffed animals haha. I'm not sure what they're called, but they're these little penguin things. They're super cute! This thing: Dog said he wanted to throw them out during the last song haha for the encore they played their last single, Crossing Worlds, one more time. During the song Dog really did throw out the penguins while he was singing!! haha the first one he threw pretty fucking hard at the girl in front of me haha I'm kind of surprised she was able to catch it... he like, full on baseball pitched it at her o_o during oritatami I felt something tap my foot and it was one of the penguins! lol while he was singing Dog would hold out a penguin like "you want it???" and the girls would hold out their hands like "I WAAAANNNNT GIVE ME PLEEEEASSEE" and he'd snatch it back while smiling like "nope!" lolol during Rei's guitar solo he put a penguin in his shirt too haha I'm glad they could have fun on the last song and got everyone smiling again with something so silly haha I think they really ended on a positive note <3 LAGLESS doesn't have many songs, but I hope people continue to love their music!! Even though they've disbanded, it's never too late to love a band! <3 Here are some pictures they posted from last night: And for those of you who still hasn't seen it, here's the PV for Crossing world Oh and Dog just posted that he plans to only update is Instagram from now on and, if I'm understanding correctly, that he's changing his name from DOG to らびたん (labitan.. okay but idk if he actually wants to be called 'labitan' or just 'labi' and he's adding the 'tan' just to be cute lol)
  7. I saw this band at their first live and they were kind of a mess to be honest haha the guitarist messed up his solos pretty much the whole set and they all seemed very unsure of themselves. However, I saw them again at the Shibuya Taihen event and they've improved a LOT in just a couple of months. A lot more confidence and stage presence for sure. I really like their music too! It def sounds better when they're not messing up the whole time haha They're definitely a band to keep an eye on! I'm kind of surprised that they're selling T-shirts and jackets and whatnot before releasing a single, but whatever works I guess haha. They have a free live distributed CD that's been available since 8/3! I wish I had known and/or wasn't running around trying to see everyone so I could've gotten a copy haha Anyway, I'm really excited for this band!
  8. Thank you for writing about FoLLoW @hiroki!! I can't believe how hard I fell in love with them despite knowing they'd disband in only a couple of months T___T I wasn't expecting too much when I went to go seem them that first time, but they hit me so hard. Even though I only knew them for a short time, they've definitely impacted me a lot, and I'll NEVER forget them <3
  9. CLear took part in the bangyaru jiken live last at Shinjuku club SCIENCE! Here's their set list: 1. 夢うつつ(yume utsutsu) 2. Dizzling Dance 3. Dearest 4. キセキ (kiseki) ⇦ New song!! This set list was kind of ridiculous. Like jumping and moshing in EACH song?? I was so tired haha. Yume utsutsu's mosh at the end goes on FOREVER haha and Dizzling Dance is basically just different forms of jumping the whole song with some headbanging and oritatami haha Dearest is their towel song so you jump while waving your towel around and then go into mosh. I think they were trying to kill us. haha But it was a lot of fun!! They didn't have as many gya today... there were like 4 people in saizen plus me and my friend in the 2nd row haha. I think there were two Kai gya behind me. And like CLear gya are so shy. No one yells their names during the parts where you usually yell names so recently I usually start it LOL. Being the only one yelling someone's name is kinda embarrassing but w/e haha the Wataru gya will usually join in a bit and there were a couple of girls yelling Kai. Poor Tsukimi doesn't get any love T_T I was so happy to FINALLY hear their new song!! I was a bit worried before the live cos Ryota had tweeted that there's rapping and windmill headbanging in it so I thought maybe they had tried to make a super heavy song or something, which could potentially sound be very un-CLear (pun??? lolol) or if not an un-CLear song, I thought it might sound super disjointed, but it was surprisingly really smooth transitions haha. Or maybe I'm just biased af and wasn't paying as close attention as I could to the song itself cos we were all trying to figure out the furi. haha but I really like it!! I hope they play it again at their next live!! At buppan Ryota said it was his first time rapping! I would never have guessed! Like it wasn't just the talking fast like how some Japanese artists will do in songs, but it actually had a rhythm to it and they had a good rap beat and I am just very very pleased with it all haha <3 I can't wait to buy it!! I really REEEEAALLLY hope that they put Goodbye or Chocolate Cake on the single with it. That would literally make my life. haha Anyway, here's some picspam! CLear's next live is August 31st! They hinted that they'll wear yukata for the live! Last night a lot of bandmen and gya wore yukata and they were like oh yeah summer... we should've worn yukata too... haha Details: 2017.08.31 @ Ikebukuro EDGE 【Cast】 ジャックケイパー / せばだばまいねびょん / L.O.V.E / Airish / RIKUTO inck. / NORANECO / 8月情報解禁バンド / DatuRΛ / Sclaim / BRATBAX / THE ENDEMIC OAK / CLear OPEN 14:00 / START 14:30 Pre-order 3500 / Doors 4000 (separate drink charge) Tickets (eplus): http://sort.eplus.jp/sys/T1U14P0010843P006001P002232956P0030001
  10. I still can't believe they're going to disband T_T wayyy too many good band disbanding this year T_T I can't imagine how they must be feeling. Like, earlier this year they had gotten into that accident and a couple of the members were hospitalized. They got through that, and then everything that happened with Rio, but they were getting through that to and their fans continued to support them... but now this T_T
  11. Clear played at Takadanobaba AREA for the first time in a year the other night (7/17)! But it was also their last time playing there T_T They all really love this livehouse (it seems like a lot of bands do actually) <3 Their set list: 1.星流る夜に (Hoshi nagaru yoru ni) 2.DizzlingDance 3.モノクロの未来 (monochrome no mirai) 4.Surround It was a completely different setlist from 7/11. I love how they can have a completely different set list, but I'm never disappointed. Like most bands have that one song that they will play without fail at every single live, but Clear doesn't really do that. I mean like if it's their shusai I think they tend to play Yume Utsutsu for their encore, but it's not like a MUST at EVERY live. Like if they DON'T play a song, maybe I'll be like "oh I wanna hear that next time" but it's not like I'm upset about it. I mean, like last time I saw Tra they didn't play Kamikaze and I felt SUPER weird about it haha. But yeah, CLear also usually does a pretty good job of matching the other bands their playing with so that the other gya will maybe give a shit about them haha idk they're just really smart with their set lists <3 Anyway, I really liked their set list last night! I mean, I love their set list every time really haha When I first got into CLear, Surround, Dizzling Dance and Hoshi Nagaru Yoru Ni were like my top three songs for sure so it was just really nice for me <3333 Also, I think I just like jumping in circles, which you def do a lot of in Dizzling Dance lolol <333 Jumping in circles and throwing hearts. It's the fucking best. hahaha <333333 Maybe that's why they don't really play Dizzling Dance the same time they play Mousou Closet... too much spinning in one set list?? lolol I'm glad more ppl joined in for Dizzling Dance! I always feel kind of dumb if I'm the only one doing the furi for it in the second row haha it's really fun though!! lolol Before they went into Surround, Miu (the support bassist) had some technical difficulties (all the bassists were having problems that night for some reason), but Tsukimi didn't notice and played the track to go into Surround cos he didn't notice, so they had to stop it suddenly lol they recovered pretty well like Tsukimi just started playing a good beat and Wataru and Kai joined in and it was like a nice jam session, but then they stopped suddenly. They should've just kept going lolol then Ryota started talking and Tsukimi told us a story of him spilling his salad all over the floor before he was even able to take one bite... but no one really laughed and Ryota was like... yeah that's not very interested (I found it interesting though cos I've def done that before??? lolol) Anyway, but then they fixed w/e problems Miu was having and all was well. I really REALLY like Surround <33333 That was the first song that from CLear that I was SUPER obsessed with haha Anyway, here's some picspam from after the live <3 (they all changed their looks a bit! Ryota pinned his bangs back! <3) Their next live is 8/8 @ Shinjuku Club Science! http://eplus.jp/sys/T1U14P0010843P006001P002231230P0030001 (they aren't listed on the eplus site cos they were added last minute I think, but they will def be performing!) The only other live they have in August is on the 31st, but they haven't announced any details yet.
  12. For those of you who haven't seen/heard of it yet, Purple Stone started an official Line account! Go add them now! <333
  13. A bit late, but here's Hiroki's 2-part drumcam digest from their 3rd one-man! (including part of his MC lol... more like just him getting the crowd riled up lol I'm still mad at him for choosing to speak instead of doing a drum solo >.>) Also Hiroki says to DM him any time you're having Tra withdrawals lolol <333 I'm sure he'll be happy to receive your DM even if you don't speak Japanese! Go show him some love <333
  14. I don't see it o_O Maybe their makeup is just similar?? haha lolol no worries <333 it's still slightly related?? We're talking about Tsukimi?? Kind of? haha <3
  15. Hahaha does he??? Rey as in Astaria's Rey???
