Golden Bomber live in Niigata

One week after our last live in Osaka we went from Tokyo to Niigata to see ゴールデンボンバー for the last time this year.
We were excited like hell 'cause it was the first time we had fanclub seats and we expected that they're much more closer to the stage than a regular.
But everything is better than no seat >.<
Also I was a little bit nervous 'cause I had to pick up the tickets directly in Niigata at the ticket window.
I hoped everything will work well.



The day before I went to Yu House in Shibuya for having extensions so I was happy to sleep a little bit longer, I didn't have to make up my hair *yay*.
Btw, I can recommend this place. Two years ago I had extensions from Arujyansu and I was disappointed.
Now the hair quality is much more better and also the staff is more service-oriented.


After a chilled breakfast at Tully's Michi and I went to Tokyo Station and took the Max Toki Shinkansen. I recognized that I had exactly this trip when I first saw my band in 2012 but I left the train one station before, in Nagaoka.

my present (middle)
When we got off the train the girl who had a place next to us (she wore Jun birthday hoodie and had other asccessoires so that there were no doubts that she's on the way to the live, too) recognized my Tamiya-shirt and started talking to us.
Our low level Japanese and her baby English weren't a good combination to start a small talk *lol* but she was very kind, asked us for our favorite member and gave us a card as present.
We waited for her other friends and she asked us to have lunch with her but I first wanted to have my ticket so we thanked her and left for the Toki Messe.


After a 30 min. walk we arrived at the convention center. We had some time left before the ticket counter opened so first I searched for a smoking place and then something to eat for Michi, she was hungry like hell!
Fortunately there was a conbini in this center.
Without problems I got my tickets just with showing my passport and my fanclub member card and I felt very assured.


In Niigata weren't a lot of good cosplayers. Hopefully next year we will see much more. But this Kenji was really impressive...he had the original Kenji haircut with that awful hair color xD


As you can see my friend Michi really loves Kenji *lol*. This one was awesome, too... he was taller than Michi and got black hair. I guess she loved him, ha ha...


And I got shocked! We met this two guys on Saturday in Osaka. After asking for a picture I tried to chat with the Shou and told him that I was in Osaka, too and he answered in fast Japanese and I was like ???
LOL but he also asked for a picture with me. Eight days later it came into my mind that I missed my chance to ask him other things *sigh*...


And my highlight (beside Shou-cutie) was a small bubble soccer group with Ramos Jun and Kiri Yona. I was so happy and of course, we had to take a picture.


 I swear, the bubble soccer thing was the best that the guys ever made and I'm still laughing about that even it's from the last tour.
When I ever will cosplay again I want to do this fucking awesome shit! xD


When we were taking pics somebody asked us in Japanese if we're able to speak English. I was totally confused and so we met Erin, the one and only foreigner we have ever seen at a Golden Bomber live.
We hung around the center and talked a bit.


One hour before the live started the doors opened. I was excited about our seats. Block B first row seemed to be not that bad.

Juns view from the stage
our view
And really... the stage was so close that I was able to see Kiryuuin's beads of sweat *meow*! Michi and I had no people in front of us and so we had enough space to do furitsuke.
I was so happy that I started more enthusiastic than at the other lives. I guess too much... after 'Lola no kizu darake' my neck fucking hurts *lol* but I didn't mind and continued dancing.
This was really the best live ever ever EVER!


The guys were so relaxed on stage. Michi and I decided that we will go next year only to lives at smaller towns.
After 'Memeshikute' it rained golden glitter and it was the first time I catched some by myself ^^
As last encore they played 'Masashi' and that was really overwhelming to me.
Michi and I were satisfied and happy after the live. We took the last train to Tokyo and I was happy but also very sad because this year I won't see my band again.
See you next year, Golden Bomber!

I want them Q__Q
Bye!

Golden Bomber live in Ōsaka ~ Sunday

キスミー!

The 2nd day of the ゴールデンボンバー live in Osaka started more relaxful 'cause we knew that we will have the same seats... eh... no seats but we had a plan that we will get in much more earlier than the day before and also we checked up a good standing place.
So we styled up a little bit after breakfast and this time we wore our tour shirts we bought. 

On Sunday it was sooo hot and sunny so Michi and I weren't really motivated to walk around or take a lot of pictures but all in all we felt disappointed.
We thought, Osaka is a big city with a lot of people and a lot of cosplayers but on Sunday there were just a few.

This group was awesome! It was the live drama crew from 2014 with robot Kiryuuin, Dr. Kyan, Utahiroba-kun and even Kenji as magic tree.
Michi and I loughed so hard about that Kenji.

This cute Kiri-chan was also funny. That idea with the picture of Yutaka from 'Shinda tsuma ni niteiru' PV is just great!

There were also a group wearing the new album outfits, a military look. But a Kenji was missing. We thought it would be difficult to cosplay Kenji with his short brown haircut so nobody tried xD

And finally I met the cutest: a Kiri Yona cosplayer (left). I wanted sooo bad to meet a bubble soccer group of the Kinbaku World Cup from last year's live 'cause I have seen some at some lives before via Facabook.
No group for me Q___Q

Kiryuuin as the 'real' Kiri Yona
But I was happy that a Kiri Yona was around the hall. I was like a little fangirl and that was my highlight that day.

Today we searched for better places and lucky us, nobody had the seat in front of us so we saw and felt everything and were totally overwhelmed.
We really enjoyed the show this time and after the live we had a better feeling than the day before.

We wanted to get some more merchandise but we just were hugry and instead of merchandise row we chose the Takoyaki row and went back to our hotel.
After that day we were looking forward to the live in Niigata with our fanclub seats ^^

Bye!

Golden Bomber live in Ōsaka ~ Saturday

キスミー!

On 9th of September I started my trip to Japan with a lot of stress because of the Lufthansa strike.
So I went with KLM and Michi picked me up at Kansai International Airport.
This time we wanted to visit 3 lives of our favorite band ゴールデンボンバー
We were very excited like always. We had tickets for 12th and 13th of September for the Osaka Jo-hall and also for the 20th of September for Niigata Toki Messe.

The tour's title was 'Utahiro, Kinbaku yamerutte yo' so this time Junjun was on the focus. I bet next year it will be Kenjis turn ^^

 
On the first day we decided to dress up in our German Dirndl and went by train to Osaka Jo-koen.
A lot of people hung around the hall. Both lives were sold out and Michi and I enjoyed the atmosphere there.

A few minutes after we arrived we met Kukki. She joined us for the live on Saturday and thanks to her Michi and I were able to be on some pictures together.

But before we wanted to ask some cosplayers for pictures I needed to have a cigarette but nowhere at the place was a smoking area!
Bad organized! So I hided with other smokers behind the toilets. In front of the hall were a lot of food stalls and nobody had the idea to put there an ashtray?

Michi was so happy when she discovered that Kenji 'cause he really was male and taller than her! Also he had black, longer hair xD

I loughed so hard to see this Yutaka in tutu. Last year at the tour while performing Dakishimete Schwarz Yutaka wore that special outfit for a guitar solo balancing act *lol*.

I liked that cute Kirisho. And it shouldn't be the last time that he crossed my way. He was accompanied by a great Jun but sorry, my eyes were on Kiri-chan ^^

Also a great idea: Sasuke TV Yutaka... Michi and I took some time to realize but then we wanted to have a pic with her. That Junjun dressed in fc birthday goods clothes was very cute, too.

When the open started we decided to buy some merchandise. We needed a towel 'cause we didn't know the setlist and sometimes it's useful for some furitsuke.
Also I wanted to buy a tour shirt to wear it at the next live but it was really hard to decide.
The row was crowded as fuck and we need to stand the half an hour so I was getting nervous in the end.

I chose the mint shirt Jun was wearing later on on stage and decided for the face towel where the guys wore denim look. Yutaka and Kiri-chan are sooo sexy on it!
After we passed the entrance we got shocked. Our 'seats' weren't seats... we had to stand behind the last row of the stand with a lot of other people and I hardly could see a thing!


The live started, as always, with a short movie. This time it was about how and why Junjun wanted to leave the band. Then with the One man fuan intro Golden Bomber appeared on stage and the show began.

They played a lot of songs from the new album 'No music no weapon' and the new furitsuke were very funny.
It was great to see and hear the new songs "live" on stage 'cause I really like the album but otherwise I missed songs like Toraumakyaba jou or Yowasete Mojito.
Best scene was while performing Aishiteru to ittekure every member sang a phrase of that song. So cute!


This time I missed my obligatory kiss between Kiri-chan and Yutaka during the gay drama but Kenji was funny like hell, I was screaming and loughed tears!
Instead of sportive bubble soccer this time they played a shooter game with different stations and I loved it so hard! I can't await the tour DVD *O*
Jun, of course, became a member of QVC shopping channel, Yutaka was sooo good looking and Kiri-chan such a cutie.


After the live I wasn't satisfied because of the trouble with our 'seats'. We decided to write a complaint to euclid agency why such tickets are sold for the same price like arena or stand.
Also the safety for the people isn't ensured.
Michi wrote very hard words and her friend translated it into Japanese but without cutting it in kind Japanese style, no, our hard German words will reach them! At the moment we wait for a response.
We said goodbye to Kukki and took some purikura on our way home.
Next day, next live.. we hoped that it will be better!

Bye!

F#ck the past f#ck the future ~ MUCC live in Berlin

キスミー!

Last weekend the japanese rock band MUCC was in town. I was happy for Aiko 'cause beside lynch. it's one of her favorite bands and so she had the chance to see MUCC live during her stay in Germany.
I organized VIP tickets for us so Aiko was very excited on day X.


I had first world problems that day 'cause I didn't know what to wear. I found one evening before a picture on Facebook of the band at the VIP event and I recognized that all member were wearing black so I cancelled my first ideas and decided for white ^^

blouse: New Yorker
skirt: Garula
belt: selfmade

I wanted to wear a plain and simple outfit but I made it some kind of rokku with a lot of accessories like the Glavil cross and choker and a studded belt which I did by myself a few hours before I left my flat xD

By the way, when I first tested my lenses called EOS New Adult Gray I was a little bit uncertained if they suit me well 'cause the whole last year I wore brown lenses but now I really like them and at the live a girl asked me what kind of lenses I wear 'cause they look great!
So I guess, they're alright, ha ha ...

Aiko and I met in the afternoon and went together to the C-Club at Columbiadamm. I have never been there before but I was proud of myself that I took the right exit at the station.

I front of the club were a lot of black wearing people so we knew that we were right *lol*. Because we had some time left we decided to take a coffee and a cake around the corner but in the end it was a really fast snack and we went back to the location.

After some minutes we waited in a row for the VIP entry. It was around 45 minutes before the official open and I was getting nervous.
I had no idea how it works. The only VIP events I participated was at An Café lives last year.

We took place in some kind of beer garden (unfortunately without a cold beer) and it was a chilled atmosphere there.
I was surprised how many people got VIP tickets. While smoking we talked with some fans.

After a short time we were able to enter the club. I was confused but I went directly to the stage for the first row. Other fans were going for the merchandise.
A fan told us that the meet and greet with the band will be after the live. Aiko and I were starring at each other and thought NOOOO! We will look like shit after headbanging and sweating >.<
But we couldn't await the live!

I couldn't believe it but to see and feel MUCC live was just awesome! We were in front of Yukke, the bassist. Sometimes he changed the side with guitarist Miya. Most magnetic charisma got Tatsuro, voka-ru of MUCC.
All four member were so energetic on stage and they were playing great rock music! I was really impressed and I really have to say that it was one of the best lives I ever went!
All member tried to speak some German words like 'Ihr seid geil!', 'Ich bin ein Berliner!' or Satochi told something like 'Deutsches Wasser ist gut für meine Haut!' WTF? *lol*

Before MUCC started with the encore there was a fan marriage proposal on stage. It was cute and the guys really liked it. Yukke was deeply moved xD

Aiko was a lucky girl 'cause she got a pick from Yukke. I dindn't get anything *sigh* but all my hopes will be in Niigata for this year's Golden Bomber live! I ordered tickets via fanclub so maybe we will have better seats near the stage and I want a pick from Yutaka so bad!

After the live we waited again in the beer garden while MUCC were taking a shower I guess. Then the VIP event started with getting some merchandise.

We got a laminated VIP pass, a signed poster and a photo pamphlet. After some kind words of the band each fan was able to take a picture with all member and the chance to get another signature on an item.
Sometimes I was shocked while watching the scene 'cause some bulky chicks grabbed the guys and hugged them all. Poor guys!
As it was my turn to take the picture Yukke started to shake my hands and also after him the three other guys. While they were signing my photo pamphlet I told the band '今日はありがとう。' and Tatsuro answered in German 'Dankeschön!'.
I really like the guys! 


Without Aiko I hadn't participated at VIP event but honestly it was nice to meet the member, they all were really nice and kind. 
All in all it was a special day. The live was overwhelming and meeting the band was a nice conclusion. The day after my neck hurts like hell but it was worth it!


I really have to thank Aiko. Just because of her I went to the live and now I have another band I really really adore!

Bye!
