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.

Oh happy day…!

30.12.2015
On this day an Idol Koushien at Shinjuku Blaze happened, one that was sold out very quickly, but were I was able to not only get tickets for myself but also to provide Marty and Caio with those. Aren’t I great? Every effort paid out though, becoming one of the best experiences in my idol fandom. Not the best, then as I mentioned, Caio was present 😛 Just kidding. Continue reading

Old and New

27.12.2015
This day would become in most part a repetition of the day before: Venue-hopping for three different groups, again with a lot of traveling involved – Shibuya, Uguisudani, Shinjuku. Contrary to yesterday though, I wasn’t really in the best form, dealing with a slight headache and some tiredness. This would become an issue in the early day. Continue reading

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

I love Idol Koushien!

It began very early that day, as me and Shaun agreed on meeting for visiting the Natural History Museum, as this would probably be the only time we could meet this trip. So me and my sister arrived on time at Ueno Park and were already expected. We easily decided on the dinosaurs exhibition which just had re-opened after restoration works. It was totally worth the money. Enough time could be used to chat about idols, then as you certainly realise, skeletons of extinct creatures apparently bring idols to mind. Continue reading

A Spanish heart in Japan

The first day that could be used in part for walking around Tokyo. As we had to go for Shimokitazawa in the afternoon, we decided on striving through Harajuku and Shibuya. Nothing special to report. But I used the chance to show my sister the Shibuya live house area, important for her to know, as both of my sisters will travel to Japan in mid-Septembre to attend the tour start of PASSPO in Tsutaya O-East. I influenced them well! Continue reading

A Fruity morning increases the Enthusiasm Level

My last day of this trip had already arrived but I was not even close to feeling homesick. Perfect condition, as today I would have a One Man by JyuJyu, their first, and a Two Man by PPP!PiXiON and PiiiiiiiN on my agenda. The first would start at 12.30, so I decided to leave for it around 10 in the morning. This coincided with the check-out time of the hostel leading to not only meeting Rina from Fruity in the elevator (I refrained from getting in there with her) and running into the whole group down in the lobby. I kept up a cool demeanour, slightly nodded at them in case they remembered me and left the room key at the reception to exit the hostel right away. Allan told me later about Misa and Rina recognizing me immediately. Here it wasn’t the best thing to be an easy to distinguish person (=foreigner). Continue reading

Death and Resurrection

It was friday, the 27th of March – time for another Idol Koushien. This time it was a small one with just 5 groups in the line-up, being: San Minutes, PiiiiiiiN, JyuJyu, PassCode, NanoCune. My main reason to attend, besides it featuring PiiiiiiiN and JyuJyu, was my schedule on the coming Sunday, which had the Two Man of the first and an One Man of the latter on plan. Great way to bring myself to their attention and to get myself used to their performances again. This was important to me, so I withstood Allan’s persuasion attempts for introducing myself to his favourite group Fruity. Sorry, mate! Continue reading
