Burning Communication ~ An Café live in Kobe 2015

When I checked the tour schedule of An Café last year I recognized that they had some lives during our stay in Japan around Christmas time.
So we decided for the 22nd December where they wanted to be in Kobe. At this time we were in Osaka so it was only a stone's throw from there.

Our morning started really bad 'cause of some annoying Chinese tourists at our Café Break. Both morning sets were sold out and Michi's mood was fucked up.

I just did a messy picture >.< I wore nothing special that day but I got the An Café towel from Senja for the live. Thank you so much!
After leaving the hotel we wanted to have a relaxed coffee at our Excelsior to calm down from that bad morning before we wanted to leave for Kobe.
We took the JR Line to Sannomiya and after arriving we tried to find the location. First we took the wrong street but finally we found the VARIT. where the live was held.

It was really hard to find and the sign of the club was so small but in the end we had some time left so we decided to have another coffee and Michi was hungry.
But Michi didn't know what to eat so we ended up in another Excelsior Café at the Ikuta Road.

I tried a tuna sandwich and some ice tea. I didn't feel like going to a concert but while the time passed by I felt more and more excited.
I have never been to an An Café live in Japan before, I just have seen them a few times in Germany so I wondered if it would be a big difference.

Michi and the plastic bag xD

When we went back to the VARIT. a few girls waited outside and we tried to check why they were buying plastic bags but then we understood that we had to do our clothes and hand bags inside.
It was the improvised cloakroom *lol*.

Then we got in line while I observed the Japanese An Café fans. I guess Michi and I were much more older than all of them. I missed the bad Bou cosplayers like in Germany but therefor some girls dressed up in cheap Christmas dresses bought a few minutes ago at the Donki store nearby.
At 06:30 h we entered the club and had to buy some drink marks. Nobody knew why but in the end I was thankful xD

My first mission was to buy some merchandise for my friends GooF and Senja who are big big fans of the band. GooF wanted to have a hoodie and for Senja I had to buy a photo set and a cap. The hoodie was no problem but Senja's desired stuff was sold out. I felt so sorry for her! So I bought a tour shirt and a towel and hoped she would like one of that things.

Because I left over 10,000 Yen I got a cheki for free. I wasn't able to choose which member was on the picture and I'm not into Takuya anymore but it's a nice memory ^^
I put the stuff into a locker and then I was shocked: The club was the smallest I ever went. Even the clubs where An Café played in Germany were much more bigger.
Michi and I were standing at the back and weren't lucky 'cause we had some tall guys in front of us.

The live started with the last single 'Sennen DIVE!!!!!' and I was sooo happy to see An Café again after a long time!
They all looked fantastic and did a really great show! Sometimes I changed places with Michi to have a better view on Kanon while Michi tried to have a focus on Teruki.

Yuuki and Teruki

Miku and Teruki

Teruki and Takuya

Teruki and Kanon

Mostly Teruki postet a lot of pictures during the tour on his Twitter. I love all of the guys, they always make me smile and the live was awesome!
An An Café live is always so much fun, they did some jokes on stage and Yuuki and Kanon also did the obligatory QVC shopping channel show, I was loughing so hard about the two cuties.
And I was surprised that I remembered a lot of furitsuke.

*** I'm not sure about the setlist, maybe I mistook some songs or forgot one or two >.<

For the encore the guys played Jan-Ken-Pon (Rock Paper Scissors) to decide the song. Every member got a song and had to battle against each other.
Takuya won with 'Escapism'. I like that song so I was satisfied with the choice. An Café were on stage for around 2 hours and finally they made the concert shot with all the Cafekko.

After the live we were happy about our drink marks and we got a Smirnoff Ice. It was really iced and it felt so good that we killed that drink within a few seconds.

I was in a really good mood when we went back to the station. We catched a rapid train back to Osaka and had a great memory for our first An Café live in Japan.

An Café will always be in my heart 'cause they helped me to get over a sad time.
I can't await to see them again, maybe next time in Germany? My friends and I are waiting for the next 'Nyappy go around the world' tour !

Bye nyappy! o(≧∀≦)o
