Hawaii BLAST trip report (finally!!)

Kazoku Game
I'm finally getting around to writing up the trip...in a blink of an eye, it's already been a week since the concerts... It still feels like a dream ;_; I'm not sure what I can be contribute than what's already been reported out there, except for sharing my experience not only of the con, but around the con too. With some pics!

At moments like this I'm a little thankful for platforms like Twitter, which I've been referring back to my realtime tweets for snippets on tumblr and now the lengthy trip report. But I mean, who reads long text-heavy entries these days? lol for any interested!

Day 1 - 9/17 - WaikikiCollapse )

Day 2 - 9/18 - Waikiki, then to KoolinaCollapse )

Day 3 9/19 - Koolina, Friday concert!!Collapse )

Day 4 9/20 - Koolina, Saturday concert!!Collapse )

Day 5 - 9/21 - Returning HomeCollapse )

Post-Con

I arrived Sunday night at 10p-ish, and the next morning was work right away. It wasn't until I got out of work that I got the chance to unpack, and from that gesture of unpacking, that's when the "post-con withdrawal syndrome" finally hit me and I just cried for a while. I was so out of it the whole week at work. Not only from thinking back at everything about the con, how close Arashi were, but even everything that made the whole experience fun and successful...lining up with crazy roomies, getting water and food for each other, etc. I mean, who knows when's the next time I will see them again T.T Many thanks to mom, roomies Steph, kyraensui, leana9101, Ruri, and also line buddies riidaaisbest, GuiY, Nikki, Ann, and Jessee for a great time.

Well, I'm glad to have finally posted this on the last day of Shirokiya's Blast Shop...before the matsuri is truly over. Looking at all the stage dismantling pictures on twitter just makes the whole experience even more surreal, like it really was just a dream. But of course it wasn't.

Being part of the audience brought a new level of appreciation for the songs we've heard so many times. Now listening to Kansha Kangeki, it will bring me back to that moment when Sho 'bowed' right in front of us. I listen to PARADOX and will remember how sexy the performance was. I watch the 9.26 Mste performance and immediately relive the whole experience.

It will be another 5 years until such intimate experience will come by again, but until then (or at least until the DVD release), I will try to keep these feelings alive.

Popcorn CD review

Arashi - Super Heroes


I finally received my copy at the end of last week, and here is my review for the CD. Mostly it would be reviewing the album songs.

My mouthful of individual track reviews :DvCollapse )

Final words:

I blasted it on loud stereos, and I can definitely appreciate the intended sound of "party dance pop" genre. There was a very nostalgic sound to it that screams late 1999's/early 2000's, like when DDR used to be the thing. For a '90's baby like me, that sound was a good type of nostalgia. Granted, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it was evident for this album that they were having fun with it, choosing what fulfills them and who they are first and foremost. Ohno picked his favorite genre (according to AD), Jun picked from last year's solo demo tapes cuz he really liked the funkness, and the other three totally matched their personalities.

Genre-wise, it's definitely opposite of Beautiful World. I still like BW a little more.Overall, as the boys suggested, playing the album in order gave the optimal experience. My only criticisms, as stated above, are the initial orderings and that some tracks the instrumentals overpower their voices. Also, while I like most of the album songs, they aren't the easiest to catch along right away. Popcorn is wonderful as a party compilation, but not as much a sing-along one (the tunes will grow on me tho). 

But I definitely loved Popcorn's packaging SO much more ♥ The popcorn heads and the popcorn story booklet were just SO fun and unique that I can't get enough of them. It adds to the whole fun theme they were aiming for. And DID I MENTION THE LITTLE GUYS WERE HIDING HERE TOO?

ブラックボードDVD!

Arashi - Reflection
Hihi, I obviously am epic fail for not posting Japan report after almost 2 months... Stuff happened afterwards, and I'm not sure if there's any merits to post now..

But anyways... as posted on tumblr, my Blackboard ~Jikan to Tatakai Kyoshi-tachi~ DVD has arrived yesterday!!


The box is a 4-fold, and when you unfold each fold for the specific Night, you see a collage of pictures pertaining to that episode. It also comes with a booklet.

Well, I'm pretty much just flailing in my own little corner, since I know most of the fandom is dismissing it... But if my review didn't imply already, I truly loved the Drama SP and loved Sho's performance in here as Shirahama-sensei. I also love Night 2 and 3's stories as well, and certainly not regretting at all of the purchase (first drama one too).

I have only watched the press conference, and I'm reminded how transiently beautiful he was back then ♥ Cannot wait to watch the making. Now if only I know how to DVD rip! /newb

Edit: after thought.Collapse )

Onion - Sigh.
DSC07966
Totally late and last minute AnimeExpo2012 report. My sister and I went for one and only reason: Kajiura Yuki and FictionJunction! *_____* And I can say we were totally successful because we got to go to their panel, their CONCERT (heavenly!!!), and got their autographs!!! Thank you gem2niki for the hotel!

More detail and some awesome cosplayersCollapse )

And now...

Off to Japan for 10 days!

Will be going with kyraensui! Can't wait to see Arashi's Waku Waku *____*; 

Fanime cosplay pics (2 weeks late~)

Arashi - Super Heroes
Late cuz I've been lazy...

Here are some of our Arashi Scene Tour cosplay pictures from Fanime2012 on Sunday night (cuz I was epic fail and super late on finishing my part orz). Costumes all made/gathered ourselves.

Btw, I am so not happy with the new LJ Scrapbook. They lost so many LJ security settings and options... Therefore, this post might be locked in the future, or not. Will see.

Featuring:
[info]hellmaster05 as our lovely camerawoman
[info]kyraensui as Mr.Shizuka
[info]mikage as Mr.ComeBack
[info]asaphira_sachi as Mr.Taboo

I was mistaken as "Mario version" of Michael Jackson by a few lol, but we were recognized by around 6 people.

PLEASE DO NOT REPOST ANY OF THESE PICS W/O PERMISSION!
That includes Tumblr, Weibo, another LJ account, or any other social media sites!
We are awesome.Collapse )

Any AnimeExpo attendees this year?

BRAWL Pink
Seems my sister and I are going after all to see Yuki Kajiura and Fictionjunction.

If there's anyone here who's going, or know any people looking for hotel roommates, please PM me. Few conditions: 1) we much prefer all-female room, 2) we don't mind sleeping on the floor. 3) We're most likely only gonna stay 4 days 3 nights.

comments are screened. Thanks!


Solved!
