[sticky post] Help?!  
Will you help me?!?!

Below are links to entries where I have many pictures of my idols and I need information about the pictures!
I seem to have some OCD about needing to know EVERYTHING about a picture: Date, Person, Year, Type (Magazine/Photoset etc), Magazine Name.

Seto Koji Help Part 1: Photosets
Kamenashi Kazuya Help Part 1
KAT-TUN Help Part 1: Pairs/Trios, Junno, Ueda, Nakamaru, Extra.

This week we have the real Papa of D-Boys; Papa Endo! Honestly I thought he'd be easier to find but his shirtless pics are harder to find than Wada's! But here's what I got:

endoshirtless1

^^ This is a tease mwahahaha

( Real ones under the cut! )Collapse )

Once again please post below if you have other shirtless pics of him! Someone mentioned in the last post that START has this kind of pics in but I don't own the Photobook nor can I find scans of it online so unfortunately that ain't happening.

I thought Endo would be easy to find because he's done a LOT of work and a lot of different kinds of work but alas a Papa has gotta be descrete and he's definitely been that!

Who would you like to see next week? I'm still staying on D-Boys but is there anyone you wanna see and you definitely know their pics will be easy to get a hold of.

Bye and enjoy!

I was really hoping to keep this list consise this time but then.... as always I find more and more stuff that's interesting BUT I still wanted to put EVERYTHING together so sorry if this is SUPER big! I'll split it into the two sections ^_^ So let's begin! Remember this is NOT what I'm definitely watching for Autumn. This is just everything that interests me for the new season. What I will watch is a different post probably out the first week of October! Anyways, enjoy!

DORAMAS

( Doramas and SPs )Collapse )

Now that doramas were done, and were done pretty quickly thankfully. Now for the anime!

After 11 days of solid work, I finally started my holiday off by going to a play! Which was my first one in about 2 weeks! Seriously, stage-withdrawal-symptoms are real! I was having dreams of going to stages like EVERY night it was that bad xD

IMG_7107

Stage Site here.
Dress Rehearsal video here.

I had speed read the manga in English and only volume one of it in Japanese before seeing the play. I was super excited because it was by a writer I love (she's also written MESSIAH! and we all know how much I love the Messiah series!) so I had high hopes for both the play and the manga; I was disappointed!

Synopsis (for the manga)

Japan, Year 2055, Old Tokyo. As the population continues drop due to a mysterious disease, through a certain incident, the fates of two youths, the orphan Noel, and Rikka, the heir of a distinguished Russian Mafia family, will cross… A thriller, depicting the tale of their "Bond of Blood"…


Cast

Rikka - Ueda Keisuke (known as UeChan)
Noel - Hirano Ryo
Sasha - Fujita Rei (known as Fajita Rei)
Cloud - Yamauchi Keisuke
Snake - Kuwano Kosuke
Olive - Fujiawara Yuuki
Wiwi - Karahashi Mitsuru
Black Santa - Nakamura Ryusuke

Pre-Play


I watched this at Tokyo Dome and because I'd finished work so early, I actually took time (for the first time ever) to properly look at and around Tokyo Dome City. Normally I'm too busy running to get KAT-TUN goods or I'm too busy running to Tenimyu to actually look at the place and it's actually a really nice location!

IMG_7099


Once again beautiful flowers everywhere! xD During the run of Inferno it wasn't only UeChan's 27th birthday (September 5th) but it was also (either September 3rd or 4th) his 10th anniversary since his debut! So lots of flowers were around celebrating that ^_^


IMG_7115
IMG_7114


I was very surprised to find how BIG the theatre was! I knew Super Sentai performed here but it's like.... probably one of the biggest (in terms of seating availability) theatres I've been to! I was really shocked.


IMG_7112

It also worried me that the place wouldn't fill up but I shouldn't have doubted cos the guys in this play are VERY well known and the theatre was pretty much full! ^_^ phew! I was sat behind two girls who were fangirling over Kuwano's bromides before the start of the play which made me happy. I've seen Kuwano pop up in quite a few things but I'm not his fan and I wasn't sure if he was one of the popular ones, so I was glad to see he had some love from the audience ^_^


IMG_7131


The staging was very interesting. The audience seats went up while the stage had placed a chair on the bottom floor and then had staging and background on the stage. I was so curious about that chair... and I was shocked how much time they did end up on that bottom floor.


The Play Itself


First and foremost; if you enjoy Messiah (I still need to make a Series group post about it on here) then you're gunna enjoy Inferno! It has a lot of similar themes and tropes. There's a lot of action in both, there's a lot of mafianess in both, the music in both is very similar and to pull even more similarities; we have Fajita and Nakamura who star in both of them <3 the whole Rikka x Noel thing is very Messiah like also in that they live to protect each other and care deeply for each other on a slightly homo-implied level <3 it so cute!!! But we'll get to more of that later. It kind of reminded me of Makai Ouji as well for some reason... maybe because the stage set up is similar and Rikka and Noel remind me a lot of Dantalion and Wiliam; both relationships are very similar. Same could be said for Kuro and Ciel in Kuroshitsuji and some people has said Inferno is similar to Kuroshitsuji also. So yes Inferno is Messiah meets Kuroshitsuji meets Makai Ouji, okay? Okay! xD

( You"re My Messiah - I mean Father )Collapse )



--


**Credit to those who took the stage pictures! They are not mine.

Rating: 7/10 (<< I keep giving this rating a lot recently... am I geting harsh in my reviewing?!)
Overall: Inferno is a cross between Messiah (similar music score, lots of actions, guns etc.), Kuroshitsuji and Makai Ouji (due to Rikka and Noel's relationship being very similar to Kuro/Ciel and Dantalion/William). I was very impressed with the character development in this stage and feel they developed the characters a lot more than what's currently in the manga. I was impressed by the amount and difficulty of choreography and I was thorough entertained by the comedic moments. Ueda Keisuke is definitely my king in the 2.5 theatre world!

Happy Friday! And y'all kinda requested this (see here) so here it is! Pretty Men Showing Their Torsos of the week! I thought we better start with the Daddy of D-Boys (I know y'all automatically thought Endo but no! not Papa Endo!) so I present: Wada Masato. That crazy crazy old man xD

( Two More Below )Collapse )


As expected his pics were hard to find!! I don't even think we get full shots of his torso in any of the D-Boys photobooks either.. If you find anymore then definitely post them below! ^_^

Yo yo yo! How is everyone?

I may have seemed MIA for the past 2 weeks or so but it was because I worked 11 days in a row and then i went straight on holiday to Kansai so I've been super busy! AND I go back to work tomorrow so who knows when I'll get time to actually reply to comments and get back to properly posting again!

So this is a quick; how's everyone doing? What's new? What's up? What's down? Tell me everything!

Also, I've noticed I've been very STAGE-central this year which obviously is something 95% of my readers and friends on here are NOT into so I wanna know; what do you wanna see me post more of? What do you want from me?

I'm still a SHIT TON behind on things like reviews (for stages, doramas, anime, everything really). But I wanna know; what do you guys read my blog for and what do you want more of and what do you want to see?

Let me know below! ^_^

PS. Missed you! xD

I won't say much about it except:

1. I'm very angry
2. I won't be supporting him and I think it's very selfish and immature of him
3. Feel like we were lied to cos he made it sound like he was leaving the Ent Biz for good and he wants/wanted a normal life

Also:

4. I'm WAY too accepting of 3nin KAT-TUN
5. I miss them more than I am angry over this news
6. 3nin are perfect - Will Be Alright Acapella and Precious One Piano/Beatbox version for the win at 10ks!
7. KT for life!
8. Koki has a live next month that I'm going to
9. 10ks DVD is so good and I've rewatched it twice already this week xD
10. Maru's birthday is way more important!

And goodnight.

I'm sorry I've fallen behind YET again on reviews! I have this one, and at least a Nikoniko Live report left and then on Sunday I'm at another play so that makes it 3 reviews and hopefully I'll get them ALL done before I go on holiday next Monday! ^_^ So here we go; HAKUMYU LIVE 2!

IMG_5705


The Basics

So if you don't know what Hakuouki is; fix that straigh away! The anime is only 26 episodes long and I've heard the games are pretty easy to get through but they are Otome games so they might not be your cup of team. If you don't wanna waste that time the basics are; A girl joins the Shinsengumi in hopes of finding her father and depending on which stage or game you're watching/playing the Shinsengumi guy who ends up with her in the end changes and the story is tweaked and changed a little each version too. HakuMyu Live 2 is the second live from the musical series (it's like the... 9th installment?) and it's essentially a two hour concert where they sing their songs from the musical and have some fun and games in between too. This is the first live to first the Second and Third (4th Gen Hijikata too) gens of the actors/characters.


The Live Viewing Experience

Now I went and watched this as an LV which means Live Viewing. This is essentially, paying for a ticket half the price to watch it live from a theatre rather than going and seeing it in person. I had NO chance of getting tickets for this so I ended up doing the LV instead and it was my first LV.

Long story short: I wouldn't recommend doing LV but I think maybe I got a bad crowd. Before the LV began, we got a lovely message from the cinema which was like 'please have fun, it's okay to clap, make sure you have your pen light on and act like you're really there' so I was raring to go, thinking 'yeah everyone's gunna be so on board!' I was WRONG! There were only like three people will lights, it was completely silence unless someone was crying, or something comical happened on stage, or something funny was said by the actors, and hardly anyone clapped during the curtain call which personally I think is fucking rude as hell cos I even clap when I'm watching the freaking DVD! Have some respect for the actor busting their ass on there! What the hell?! Other bad things I wanna cover:

1. Doesn't feel real. Feels like you're just watching a DVD.
2. There's the fear (and warning that they put up) that the connection might be lost in parts.
3. I think you lose some emotion and tenseness by not being there actually in person because (as I said) just feels like you're watching a DVD.
4. You have no control over who you can watch cos the camera will choose the focus and close ups for you which sucks cos it meant my MakiChan stalking time was completely shot down.
5. I hated the crowd I was with and kinda ruined MY enjoyment of it - already explained.
6. The performance will be the same as the one on the DVD which is a shame so I'll only have seen one version rather than two different ones...
7. The sound quality at my cinema sucked! Could hardly hear Hashimoto and MakiChan at some points, especially when they were singing! I know they have delicate and soft voices but come on! -_-

IMG_5714


But I will say some good things:

1. Half the price of a normal ticket so you're saving money there
2. No bad seating
3. Camera close ups so you don't need glasses and you'll be able to see everything better than if you went in person
4. If you seriously do wanna see a play badly and you don't wanna wait for the DVD. Then it's worth it.

IMG_5902


So it does have good points but overall either just get the DVD or see it live in person.

Now onto the actual live!

What Shenanigans Went On?!

Luckily I managed to find someone who wrote up the entire set list so I'll put that here first ^_^

setlist2setlist1
Let me know if you want the English list! Though it might take me sometime to 'translate' it depending on the kanji and if I can remember the performance xD


Now the cast list:

Hijikata - Matsuda Gaku
Okita - Aramaki Yoshihiko [usually referred to as MakiChan]
Saito - Hashimoto Shohei
Chizuru - Fujikoso Yumi
Heisuke - Kizu Tsubasa*
Harada - Higashi Keisuke [usually referred to as TonChan]
Shinpachi - Fukuyama Shouta*
Yamazaki - Takasaki Shouta [usually referred to as TakaChan]
Kondou - Imata Taira
Ibuki - Shiramata Atsushi [sometimes referred to as MataChan]
Serizawa - Kubodera Akira
Shiranui - Kashiwagi Yusuke
Yukimura - Edogawa Manji
Kazama - Suzuki Shougo/Shogo

*These were the two new guys to the cast for this so now we're on 3rd Gen Heisuke and Shinpachi

This is (possibly) gunna be a very all about type of review (and as usual I'll switch between actor name and character name) because I don't actually remember a lot and it's probably because I felt like I was watching a DVD so I didn't pay as much attention as I would've been if I'd been in person. But I'll try and go down the list. I'll mark my paragraphs and sections matching the Set List numbers.

( Yaisa! Yaisa! Yaisa! )Collapse )

--

Holy moly i finally wrote it!!

--

Overall: This was SO good! I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with all the songs and I'm SO happy that I got to finally see MakiChan sing Paint It Blood because it's my favourite song! I'm very happy with the new Heisuke too but not too sure on new Shinpachi. I am excited for the next installment but very worried about whether Suzuki Shogo will be continuing as Kazama or not =S

Rating: 9/10

I'm done! Now let me eat!! This took me like 4 hours to write!

I watched this last Wednesday and oh man this is exactly what I wanted and what I was expecting to get! And it was better than expected! By the way; does everyone like my new icon? Cos I do! xD

Cast

Minami Keisuke
Baba Ryoma
Tamoto Soran
Matsumoto Hiroya
Aramaki Yoshihiko
Sotaro
Ogasawa Ken


Plot

The year is 20XX and 12 20-something year olds have been picked randomly through My Number (it's like the social security system) and will dicuss whether Article 9 should stay in motion, or if it should be completely scrapped. What THEY don't know is that their decision will officially decide the answer for the government.



If you don't know what Article 9 is then... seriously?! But I'll tell you anyway:

Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution came into effect on May 3, 1947, following World War II. It stops Japan from having an official army and cannot go to war unless (as of a recent interpretation) an allied country is the one being attacked.

That's the quick jist of it anyway. Go and do your research if you wanna learn more. OR just watch this film because...

( This movie impressed me so hard! )Collapse )


---


And that's my review! I'm mostly likely and most definitely gunna get this and it's making on DVD xD

Overall: I was so impressed with this movie! If you don't know what Article 9 is then don't worry because this movie explains it in great detail. I really liked the arguments that came up in this movie and there were some amazing performances and some amazing scenes, especially from Baba <3 I freaking loved the ending too and what so impressed with many things that happened in this. I'm definitely Against Article 9 though and this movie definitely solidified my view of this. Everyone should watch this; whether it be educational reasons, political reasons, historical reasons or just because you're interested in Japan!
Rating: 9/10

So I was lucky enough (because I'm in the fanclub) to get able to go to Seto's Fanclub Solo event! I originally had two tickets because I'd also accidently got tickets for his show in Osaka xD But in Tokyo I had tickets for the Second Show of the day so after a quick 6 lessons at work, I ran over to Nippori (to a very nice hotel by the way!) got lunch and found the venue.

IMG_5627


This is the set he had for his event. He plays 'Setti' who is like Seto Koji's failed twin brother or something xD It's hilarious how even though it's HIS event, he's playing a character and he/Setti even mentioned (as a joke) that even off stage Seto Koji plays a character xD BUT we're getting too far ahead.


PreShow

I got there just before the First show ended (it ended about 3pm) and the staff we luck enough to open the sales for the second show about 5 minutes early (they were supposed to start at 3) but, I was like the only one there and said 'Can I buy goods yet?' and they looked at the time and went 'yeah.. why not. 3 pm goods are open people!' xD Which was nice of them ^_^ For me I bought his shirt and bromides and then I bought the lunch bag and bromides for the lovely Tilmon <3

IMG_5612


My friend Rika went to both shows so after buying good I waited for her to come out and we went to a cafe to spend time talking about the event before we went back for it. She talked about how she'd been to previous Seto Solo events and that this was the best one yet. She spoke about how it's a lot more fun with it being D Date and not just Seto and Araki/Horii (which was the last one I think). And she also said 'everything this time is so much better and interesting!' so naturally my already nervous self got even MORE nervous and excited.

At the venue, while waiting to go in, some girls sat next to me pulled out some Macarons and then Yasukawa's bromides from Wakasamagumi. So naturally I couldn't NOT get involved, especially cos the bag I'd brought had Kamakari and JP's badges from the stage on! (btw review here). So this was our conversation:

私/Me: 見ましたか?/ Did you watch it (Wakasamagumi)?
人/Them: (缶バッジ見て)あなたも見ました?/ *Sees the badges on my bag* You also saw it?
私: そうです。安川のファンですか?/ I did. Are you JP's fan?
人: そうです。/ I am
私: 私も! / Me too!
人: いつ見ました? / When did you watch it?
私: 今週の水曜 / This Wednesday
人: 今日見ました。明日は?  / I saw it today. Are you going tomorrow?
私: いいえ / No I'm not.
人: 明日も見ます / I'm seeing it tomorrow as well.

I hope the two of them had a good time! It was nice to find other fans of other things and be able to have a conversation with them xD at one point they also went 'kawaii / cute' to me and I'm still not used to it and don't believe it so I was like 'nah nah nah' xD

When I finally got it, turns out there's rows 1 - 7 BEFORE you get to row A - G. So even though I had Row F and thought I'd be towards the front, I was RIGHT at the back, but luckily there were only like 100 - 200 of us so it wasn't like we weren't close to him xD I got an aisle seat as well which was nice.

I didn't take a picture this time of my view - sorry!

Now to the show!


Overview

I didn't know what to expect as I knew it wasn't going to be a stage cos duh, it's an ACTOR SOLO EVENT but because he didn't post any information about the contents before the shows began, I was going in blind. All I knew what that there'd be a VTR of his last travel (this time with D Date) and that we'd either get a handshake or a high five at the end but even then I wasn't 100% we'd get that.

So let's have a break down first:

- Seto Introduction
- A Look at the Props around Seto
- Seto Character Ranking
- VTR Part 1
- VTR Part 2
- Singing Performance
- Find the Character
- 100 Names Challenge
- Story Book

I think that's all the sections so let's go full swing!


( Again this is long so be prepared )Collapse )


---

This wasn't a play so no overall section nor rating is needed! I'm so glad I went and I got to see some more sides to Seto that I've never seen before and it was great to finally meet this guy who I've been watching grow up for like 6/7 years! He really is the sweetest person and he's so funny and I hope I get a chance to meet him again and for a longer amount of time next time! ^_^

I had been eyeing this one since Konchuuger ended and I finally gave in and bought tickets for it last month. Once again, another MMJ production with a stella cast but felt like more people were toujitsuken-ing it than actual people who bought tickets previous to the stage starting and I don't know why because I have been left impressed two now. And you'll see why...

IMG_5313


PreShow

I don't know what was going on but at about row 6 or 7 there seem to be like 2 or 3 manager looking people and some could-be-actors young guys and like a guy two rows behind them stood up and greeted them and shook hands and clearly some business deal or something was going on. So could've been scouters or managers taking their newbies to see a stage or something? Whatever it was, they were definitely people from the business. Was interesting to watch...


Oh and the flower outside the place were gorgeous! Normally I don't really pay attention to what the flowers look like but this time some REALLY caught my eye and I had to take pictures! The last flowers are my favourite <3

IMG_5317
IMG_5318
IMG_5319
IMG_5325

And once again I got super lucky(!): smack in the middle! How do I always manage to get this luck?! I guess it does run out (we all remember the ticket fails of June and July right?!) but yes I was super happy! But also made me super nervous at the end when all the lights were up and like yeah, in direct eye line for Someya!


IMG_5340



Story

So it's about 6 best friends who have just turned twenty and it's set 20 years after the Meiji Era begins and the Edo Era ends. Our main guy (finds pamphlet), Nagase decides that it's time for him to find a job and so informs his friends that he's gunna join the police force and become a police man. His friends aren't sure at first but like best friends, and also the fact they have no idea what to do with their lives, they end up following him to Police Training Camp where we find there are three other groups: The Reds known as Satsuma group: The senpais of the group that have been there the longest and are rather aragont about their position in the camp and are very forward thinking about the Meiji era; The Blues known as The Shizuoka Group: came over from Shizukoka and therefore are still very old fashioned and have a strong dialect and are seen as the outsides because they're the only two not from Tokyo, and akso, in true Sugie style, they're a little camp (xD); and The Yellows known as Edo: the most traditional of the group; one follows the way of the samurai and the other, the way of the ninja. The 6 friends are Green as known as Wakasamagumi (meaning something like 'Young Masters Group') because of A. how young they are and B. how irresponsible they are.
So we follow them as they go through their training which is interrupted when Nagase's childhood friend, and crush, Koizumi, is shot at twice and killed and the murder is pinned on Nagase, so now they try and find the real culprit.

And there is my accidentally MASSIVE review which took me like 4 hours to write over the course of 4 days xD

This review may seem a but more tame and longer and more professional compared to previous ones. I have something ticking away in my brain and I guess I'm unconciously and conciously working towards it to see if it's a possibility in the very near future. So yeah... vague I know xD

ANYWAYS, if you're still reading by this time and you read all that ^^^ then seriously give yourself a cookie! Cos it was a lot!! ^_^

Overall: Oh my this was so good! I was thoroughly impressed once again by a MMJ production and they're definitely going on my radar as a company to trsut and follow because this is the second time they've impressed me (they did Konchuuger). This play was SO funny, so hysterical, all the characters are unique and amazing and I wanted to be able to either see it a second time, and/or have 12 pairs of eyes so I could watch everyone! The props were unique too and I loved the dancers! I'm definitely gunna be buying this DVD, if I hopefully have money in October (that's when the preorder finishes).
