Bellha Final Days – Part 2

28.12.2016

Considering that before my trip only four shows had been announced, but while I arrived nearly everyday shows or events were added, I could count myself lucky – and with me all the other fans of Bellring Girls Heart. Today was another of this sudden shows, an In-Store-Live for promotion of their new single Spine EP at Tower Records Shinjuku, so I weren’t able to go for the Predia One Man. I had never took part in such an event with Bellha, therefore it would become a new experience: Group Chekis I did already with them, but this time it would also be Group Handshakes. Luckily only three members were around, so it wouldn’t become too difficult to think of topics to talk about. Continue reading

Busy Days

31.10.2016

That day, which was Halloween, didn’t had much options regarding idol shows, so in the evening I decided to go for a festival that had JyuJyu in its schedule – even very early, which suits me best. I am not fond of Halloween though and regret it came over from America. It is nearly as bad as Christmas in its materialistic way. Idols dressing up in costumes doesn’t help either. Continue reading

Starting nicely!

This trip became my most relaxed this far. In contrast to my prior trips I focused just on a small range of groups, without even caring much about missing out on others. Even skipping possible shows on some days for the alternative of doing nothing but stay at my hotel for sleeping and Internet didn’t bother me. It was very pleasant and I liked this less busy way of life a lot. To be more precise, I saw several shows by PASSPO, Bellring Girls Heart and Party Rockets GT, which I each enjoyed the most.

The one and only PASSPO … event

20.12.2015
My planning for the winter trip basically came to life because of several early idol live notifications: Predia announced in June that they would held a big One Man on 29.12. at Zepp Tokyo to celebrate their 5th Anniversary. Soon after (or was it before?) PiiiiiiiN made something similar, scheduling their 2nd Anniversary show also at a bigger venue, the Akasaka Blitz, on 03.01.  Continue reading

Sunshine Idols

19.12.2015

This day I kept free for meeting up with Caio, already early in the day. I skipped the Hachake Tai Bounenkai for it, but oh well – I prefer going for lives. Every other idol event where the focus is not on the performance but rather on communication, I feel out of place. In my opinion this is something to be enjoyed by the Japanese fans.

Short day, longer night

This day voluntarily began late: We slept until 14:00 o’clock, or if you come from a less civilised country, until 2pm (NOT the korean Idol Group). The reason was my plan to attend an Night Idol Live Festival which I agreed with Peter to attend shortly before the trip. But I get into detail later. Let me first give you an account of how the time before the above mentioned live took place. Continue reading

Kami Live – Nomen est Omen Part 2

After the Stella Beats event I had to run back to the stage area, as now Lovely Doll had its performance. Surprisingly only four members appeared. I would have understood if Maya was missing because of her graduation announcement few days prior but she was there. Yuki was not around too. Who cares though, as Yuriko was still with the group that day. The show was enjoyable and it really helps when you already heard the songs performed live. Continue reading

Kami Live – Nomen est Omen Part 1

It was Saturday, the 28th of March, and a clash of schedule happened today. My intention was to go for a Party Rockets Two Man in the early afternoon and later try to attend a small festival, which featured Chu-Z besides others. But for the same day another festival appeared on my radar: Kami Live Vol. 9, that not only featured Allan’s favourite group Fruity, of which he wanted to convince me while we were eating at an Izekaya, but also – brace yourself – had in its line-up: Continue reading
