Part 2 is for ….
~ A long Way to Kudanshita Part 6 (Tokyo day 3)
it’s the D Day, …
The Day when i finally watched yasu’s Live on Stage for 2nd time !!!
That day, i don’t wanna do anything. I didn’t event went down for breakfast even i woke up quite early that day. All i did was nothing but stayin on my bed, eat all many kind of instant noodles i bought from 7/11 near hotel and watch telly.
For me as an instant noodles lovers,
Japan never stop amazed me with so may variety of instant noodles they have on their konbinis. So spent my last sleepless night after a lame date on a 7/11 do nothing but choose which instant noodles i am gonna eat tonight just make me happy.
That day, i took almost one hour in the bathroom, nothing but stayin in the bathtub enjoyed this apple smell aroma-therapy that the hotel gave me.
It turned the hot water into green, but too bad it didn’t turned my skin into green as well …. >_<
They gave that aroma-therapy free at the lobby, and a package of facial cleaning stuffs when i did my check-in. Not only that, they also give a free coffee at the lobby start from 11:00 PM.
That hotel is quite good i say, compared to the other hotel at Shibuya where i stayed last year.
and about 15 minutes later, i am ready to go …
go where …?
I went back again to Tokyo Station to get another yen. I changed most of IDR i have and got about another 55,000 yen supposed that would be enough for my last 2 days in Japan.
I also bought Shinkansen ticket to Osaka for tomorrow morning and it was about 13,250 yen for the non-reserved ticket, who knows i might woke up late.
After that, i just stayed there next to the station gate, watching peoples and train schedule there. And suddenly my eyes caught a nice scene of a man who got a red X when he wanted to go to get his train.
I dunno what happened to me, suddenly i just laughed to him. It was so funny eh, and i had no idea if he was looked at me until i finished my LOL to him. We weren’t that far, so it’s a normal if he was aware my LOL at him.
When i saw him lookin at me, i was like
OMG, what did i do? this is very not polite eh, so …
i said to him : すみません, i am sorry, really sorry …
and he replied : 大丈夫, and you look very happy
me : me …. ？
him : はい、…
then we started to talk and laughed together,
it was quite fun eh because i remember he was tryin so hard to talk to me in his English mixed with Japanese while i also tried to replied him in my Japanese mixed with English ….
yasu : but, who is he …?
noi : dunno, he is just a stranger i meet at Tokyo Station ..
yasu : but you said you won’t talk to stranger
noi : i only laughed to him ne ..
yasu : then talk …
i know i should not talk to stranger like that, but he was so funny eh. I mean, if you see his Eeeh …!!! face when the bar wont open for him, it was just so hilarious in a charming way just like the person himself.
I can’t even imagine if that kind of person is exist, especially a Japanese stranger that i just meet and LOL-ed at. Instead of mad at me he talked and even got my joke and laughed …
when i asked him : 「Platform 9¾」 どこで ？ ….
he said : それは、ひみつです. i don’t tell you ..
me : ah, you won’t tell …
Eh God, i love when people got/understand my movie jokes …. xD
ah ya i should ask his name ne, or at least i ask if he is on Facebook or not eh, because that’s what people ask to other new people recently.
Instead askin a phone number, the common trending question now is ..
Do you have Facebook …?
Or twitter …?
Then what is your Facebook and twitter name? …
etc etc … because now everyone are exist on their own Social Networks. No matter with what kind of purpose they have. So just like what happened with The Jane Austen Man on my 1st flight Semarang ~ Jakarta, that day i missed my chance to know that hilarious man further.
I mean, who knows if he is also on Facebook eh …
Finished with talking and LOL-ing, i went to straight to Budokan, because it was already 15:00 PM.
Arrived there, i stopped first to McD near Budokan and had some chicken burger there. Ate my burger, sit there while watching so many Acid Black Cherry fans walking around with their many Acid Black Cherry GOODS with/on them.
And i did what i always do just exactly like what i always do when i see there’s yasu‘s photo posted on someone’s blog, Facebook or Tumblr. I said to myself where’s that image originally from.
What magazine, what pamphlet, poster or even Radio’s blog.
So that day, with a chicken burger on my hand i say to my self from what Acid Black Cherry Live/event’s are thoose GOODS i’ve seen that day.
A tote bag from Re:Birth Live, a bag from 69 Live (that bag is the best, i say … xD), keychain from Halloween Party, or
this my fave 2007 Free Live white T-Shirt
i should buy another one again because that shirt is 100% perfect with a red short pants. And believe me, i have more than 6 red pants but only one that 2007 Free Live white T-Shirt.
all Acid Black Cherry fans on the road that day, what i saw most of them was wearing Acid Black Cherry hoodie ….
Finished my late lunch i went to buy some snacks and mineral water at the nearest 7/11 where i meet 5 fans who was cosplaying complete The Otaku/Nerd.
Arrived at Budokan, ….
there’s so many people already gathered in front of the venue gate, and just like on Acid Black Cherry‘s other Live, there was also 2 boxes in front of the venue’s door where fans can put their letter, fan-mail or present for yasu or the support members there.
I put a letter for yasu there, because somebody asked me to write her a letter for yasu.
Just like my simple Japanese understanding, i wrote a simple letter in Japanese for yasu on behalf of my friend. Not sure what i wrote was correct or yasu will manage to read my double disaster handwriting in Japanese .
Actually, even i am studying Japanese with all my heart but i never study how to write nicely.
Because look at that my disaster handwriting that nobody can’t read. so i know you all can imagine how worst is if i tried to write in Japanese letter …
That’s why instead of practice to read and write with pencil and paper like what people do,
i put that Simeji App. on my phone and use it for my Japanese writing and reading practice by re-write again some of things on FC Magazine, song’s lyrics or something like this ….
from DearLovingMasa’s twitter, that’s Dear Loving‘s 4th Album cover with yasu‘s comment on it …
「おい、ディアラヴィ！ いい曲いっぱい入ってるやんけ！やるぅ ♡」 by yasu
and when i posted it on my Facebook, i made some mistake by wrote that 「入」 as 「大」/「dai」. But then Yukki, as always kindly correct me …. xD
back to Budokan, ….
When i was going to enter the venue and showed my ticket to one of the staff, one of them to make sure i understand, she repeated what she already say to me in English.
She said : no camera, no phone camera inside ….. !!!
I said to her : はい、わかりました …
i entered the venue and started to confused about finding my seat.
Dunno whether is Budokan, is so BIG or i am somebody who really easy to get lost and confused about finding place?
yasu : is that a question …?
noi : yes, but the rhetorical one ..
yasu : didn’t you ask somebody ..
noi : i did, but dunno, ….
so i walked all around at 2nd Floor Budokan to find my seat.
I finally managed to find my seat at almost top of the 2nd Floor . It was a bit scary tho,…
and next to me is a 40 year’s old woman, a mother with her daughter that non-stop lookin at me finished all snacks that i bought less because i already ran out of snacks before the Live begin.
Then finally when everything was dark, the Live begin with …
1. Greed Greed Greed
「Greed Greed Greed」 is the 1st single released during this 「Shangri – La 」Tour as one part of Project 「Shangri – La 」 itself beside the Live and Meeting nation-wide.
When yasu started this Project 「Shangri – La 」 , i said to myself …
if i am going to watch 「Shangri – La 」 Live, i have to watch the final/last Live so i can see all the 3 latest single Live on stage.
Even i did make plan to go to 1st SEASON Live ~ Hokkaido together with Tekki but It was cancelled because my father got sick and also Tekki keep sayin no about joining me to watch yasu.
But now i think God made different plan for me so i ended going to Japan on Encore SEASON and i managed to see all 3 latest single Live on stage.
Greed Greed Greed well, it was OK
yasu : only OK …
noi : what am i supposed to say ..
yasu : say something else
noi : what …
my seat was so far behind and i lost my glasses, so i didn’t see things clearly but i know yasu was nonstop moving there and like an Energizer Bunny. I mean, he seemed like never ran out of battery …
even i know 「Greed Greed Greed」 complete lyrics, still i didn’t even understand what the hell was yasu yasu, especially on the part with an English lyrics.
i’d say always amused me whenever he sing a song with English lyrics because he always make me to listen it carefully to get what he was sayin no matter i already remember all the lyrics in my head, but i always ended sayin …
oh yasu, what the …. ????
That’s why, i am not gonna say, i want yasu to learn English more so he can make a song with a full English lyrics, because he already did with JIGSAW ~ QED version that in so many ways confused me and also…
i agree with my sweet baby stroberry Taka when he said on some interview …
Writing a song with full English lyrics doesn’t make the album/single SOLD OUT, and after all i am still a Japanese, so there’s something that i still prefer to say/write in Japanese.
so if i say yasu need to improve his English, it’s because i want him to have a better and less confusing pronunciation on some English lyrics on his songs
2. Murder License
this is funny eh, …..
dunno what happened, maybe he was too sexcited or nervous but he started this song earlier. Even Hiro had not finished his guitar but yasu already started sayin
and i was like
えええ〜〜〜 、yasu …???
but then as fast as how i finished sayin that えええ〜〜〜 、yasu ….??? , he (read : yasu, not taka) fixed it and everything is perfect. I even say this Chou – Live version is perfect even with a bonus of that an earlier めを ….xD
on the 1st MC, …
yasu said how grateful he is to see everyone came to his Live at Budokan that night, because that day ….
May 29th 2014 in Tokyo beside Acid Black Cherry Live at Budokan, there was also LUNA SEA Live at Yoyogi and L’arc~en~Ciel at Kokuritsu ….
but as you all know, some of his close friends like his BBF DAIGO, Akihide, Shinpei and even ka-yu was there too
5. 1954 LOVE/HATE
6. Kuroneko~Adult Black Cat~
This one, Kuroneko~Adult Black Cat~ is nothing but AWESOME
I say everyone, that was totally AWESOME and i am sure to you all Acid Black Cherry fans who ever seen this song Live on Stage agree with me. And to you all who are start to make a plan to go to Japan and see Acid Black Cherry Live,
hope you’ll be able to see this, because Kuroneko~Adult Black Cat~ live version is …
a perfect package of a sexy man, complete with a sexy song and voice …
7. Kimi ga Inai, Ano hi Kara…
Live version complete with all those lightening and special effect make this song more heavenly and longing and less simple. Because this song is a simple and longing song eh, about somebody who realized now he/she isn’t here anymore …
9. so…Good night.
i really love this man and i suppose this Acid Black Cherry fever on me is ….
いつも おわらない、よ 。。。！！！！
11. Tsumi to Batsu ~Kami-sama no Alibi~
i am so glad finally i get a chance to see this song Live because i like this song, i mean i always adore how yasu put the idea about
~Kami-sama no Alibi~ / God’s Alibi —> an Alibi for God …
even when i listen to that song for the first time, it kinda felt weird for myself. In my whole life, until now i am somebody who never think if there’s an Alibi for God. Everyone needs an alibi, but not God
Because God is God,
the Greatest that never ever need an alibi because God never do wrong no matter how i love to blame God for whatever bad things on my life because i believe God has it own reason, that we have to figured out what is God reason for let this or that things happened to us.
So why would God need an alibi for?
that’s why that ~Kami-sama no Alibi~ terms from yasu was a bit surprised for me.
12. Black Cherry
14. doomsday clock (request)
that song was requested by a girl on 2nd Floor that seems like not into Acid Black Cherry that much. It was so obvious ne, because she asked Kuroneko~Adult Black Cat~ while that song is already played before …
i am sure she didn’t even know which song is Kuroneko~Adult Black Cat~ or not
I dunno why but i think on this 「Shangri – La 」Tour there’s so many that not into Acid Black Cherry audience (read : people who went there just because asked by their friends to go along, or else …) their seat number got selected on the request song part.
How the hell, they were so lucky like that?
yasu : ah not again noi_chan …
noi : yes, again and again i am jealous, why not?
yasu : so if your seat got selected, what would you say to me …
noi : ah ya, i gotta say something …
why i never think about this ne …
all think about was how i have to say I want nemuri hime …!! to yasu if my seat number might got selected because i remember yasu also asked some questions like …
what’s your name,
where do you come from,
and with whom do you come tonight … etc etc
then what am i gonna say eh, because i am sure have a real talk with yasu must be really hard for me especially with my very very simple Japanese understanding …
15. scar (request)
While that song,
scar was requested by a woman also on 2nd Floor and she was quite close to my seat.She is a mother who is really into Acid Black Cherry, because when yasu asked her what song would you like tonight …. ?
with confidence she answered scar …
see that is what i mean with a fans who is really into Acid Black Cherry, who knows what she wants didn’t have to again and said lots of あの 。。。-ing or えっと 。。。-ing ..
16. SPELL MAGIC
17. 20+∞Century Boys
They also did some change
where yasu was on drum, Hiro on vocal, but they with changing part didn’t play anything. I mean they only kinda make fun with the instruments and Hiro‘s FUBAR screamin acting as vocalist.
and else but maybe it was a joke or something because all the audience were laughing. so f that was really a joke then i didn’t get what kind of joke was that.
then like a dream, that live suddenly over
followed with yasu shoot various color balls (with his signature on it) to the audience with that BALL GUN (?) and my fave ending is how yasu always took his shirt off and throw it to the audience.
I had so much fun, and once again ….
yasu completed me as one of his fangirl.
But i believe, this complete feeling i have after able to see 「Shangri – La 」Live soon will turned into in-complete again when yasu releasing something new (single or album). Because 2 years ago, after finished Erect Live at Yoyogi i also said …
thank you yasu, you complete me … !!!
But look what happened ne,
i still go to Japan again, so i think that’s like a never ending circle on a Fangirl Life to be forever once again will try to go to Japan again to see yasu and turned the in-complete into complete again …
What a Fangirl eh …
The Live finished and i went back to my hotel because tomorrow morning i have to go to Osaka.
Can’t believe when the Live is over nothing left but so much happiness and tired. All over my legs was hurt, i walked so slow while lookin at all those VK bandmans who was waiting out of the venue to give their band’s flyers and CD demo …
got into my train, dunno why but the mixed feelings between too happy and too tired made me cry alone there until i fell asleep and
ended in Tokyo Sky Tree Station again … #JustWhatTheHueeell!!!
so that was a hell of a long night of me back again to my hotel. All i wanted was nothing but to be on my bed …
that’s all everyone, next part it will be on my next post as A Long Way Down to Kudanshita Part 7 ~ Day 4 (Tokyo ~ Osaka)
next is this …
~ Whatsoever things from me …
still from 4th SEASON 「Shangri-la」 PHOTOBOOK because i have no idea why it take me forever to finish this PHOTOBOOK, so please bear with me.
Nah this time is for …
and moving backward for yasu‘s outfit on 「Shangri-la」 Tour , that i am sure you already see it if you are team_yasu‘s group on Facebook members.
So, this time is for …
# The costume theme for 3rd SEASON is Leopard. Not only the shirt, but the tank top under it was also leopard, and …
# they (whoever they are) put a vest that actually was the same vest that HIRO was wearing during 1st SEASON Live, while
# for the accessories, sometimes they put it simple and in other day they make it less simple ..
# theme for 2nd SEASON is zebra, a zebra pattern transparent shirt that originally made fit to yasu
and for the shirt button …
# they (whoever they are) added a mini skull as one of it. While for the pants it’s the same leather pants that yasu was wearing on the previous SEASON 1.
So i think it is quite simple but i like this 2nd SEASON‘s costume eh ….
because that shirt is a transparent shirt, so it made the back part look more sexy, ah, you know what i mean …. xD . And last but not least, to close this a very2 long post,
i am gonna talk about …
yasu : what, another movie …..? *going somewhere*
noi : no, don’t worry because my movie talk is for next post …
yasu : eeh …
noi : i am gonna talk about …
~ My Waiting for The next Recreation Album …
ever since i read the last post on The Official Blog, i keep wondering what the hell is yasu busy with now. Maybe preparing for the upcoming a-nation Live at the end of this month or i maybe
i say maybe eh, maybe …
as what they (whoever they are, again …) sayin if he is still doing music production each day, so it’s forever OK if i guess he is preparing something new. New single or maybe a new album.
As how Acid Black Cherry‘s single and album release sequence, and just like what Yukki said to me,if it is an album then next it’s time for Recreation 4 album …
Then he must already start to choose what songs he is going to cover.
And of course it is forever OK again for me to wondering (or posted a fubar request to whoever might read read this long and boring post) if maybe he will do cover songs that i like to hear recently.
i am talking about this song …
斉藤和義 – 歌うたいのバラッド
i really want yasu to cover that song, even i know D-Lite (BIG BANG) already do that for his 1st single in Japan and BENI did an English cover as well,
but still i wanna hear how is yasu‘s version.
At this time, i’d say D-Lite cover version is better. I mean how that he amazed me by making that song into K-Pop. I am sure yasu‘s version (if he cover this song) is gonna be good as well …
these days i just wanna listen to that kinda mellow songs. Not because i ate lots of melon at night but maybe because it is approaching the end of the year, as what people say it as a longing time …
then lemme say again …
noi : 愛してる よ … !!!
yasu : how many time you’re gonna say that …?
noi : for you, 1,000 times over …
yasu : 日本語で？
noi : あなたのため、千倍にも 。。。? (^^♪
