Band -> ZimuinG, Mao, [TEST], Shobon
Hi so I went with Mish (nuomici@tumblr) and another friend of mine to ANS together. Let’s skip the part where I got there at around 9AM to get the tickets, wasted about 6 hours doing nothing and waited another hour after the designated time to get into the hall .
The time is now around 9:00PM. The live was supposed to start at 8:30PM.
So after the band members got into place, Pokota jumps in and starts singing Dancing Samurai and then everyone went crazy.
Then he pauses and moves on to Senbon-fucking-zakura, and then 96neko jumps in too. and by this time, my voice was already a little sore. woops.
So after they got the whole live started and the whole hall screaming like crazy, Saiya comes in and sings Ikasama Life Game. It was a little hard to hear because she was kinda soft and the crowd was legit crazy. zzzzz
my ears are dead now.
anyways, so after Saiya came and sang Ikasama, Riseha took over and sang Aa Subarashiki Nyansei, both parts. FLKSJFAWIDJFLISGWer .so apparently, she was still practicing this solo at home to upload or something, but decided to sing it in ANS. SHE SOUNDED SO CUTE AS GUMI OMFG.
then after that, 96neko came back on and sang Black Rock Shooter. And it was so beautiful I was asldkfjalwigjaweraw idk anymore.
And then after 96neko’s BRS, PKT, Riseha, Saiya and HongKooong came back on and HongKooong taught everyone how to introduce themselves in Cantonese. 96neko was reading off her wrist which she wrote the pronunciation on probably and everyone was laughing. xD PKT refused to and spoke in Japanese. but he asked in Mandarin “Is everyone happy today? 大家今天開心嗎？” with a really cute accent. aslfajwgeh
So after the short talk, they left the stage and HongKooong sang Shinkai Shoujo.
And then NERO came out and sang Yumekui Shirokuro Bagu followed by Tokyo Teddy Bear (during which he was flying kisses to everyone which drove the crowd crazy. even the two guys standing in front of me were screaming.)
After Nero finished his two songs, Noaru and Riseha came out and told us about Nero’s fail janken (rock paper scissors). Basically he was trying to put out rock when he was playing with Noaru but his hands slipped and came out weirdly without gripping his fist. So then Noaru told everyone to play it with Nero (==”) and so the whole crowd did. But instead of doing janken, Nero did a spin and posed with his hat (the one he always does) and makes a weird joke about it.
So then afterwards were the ballads.
Noaru started first, singing S.K.Y., which was really beautiful. Her voice was so powerful. It was really amazing and the slow song allowed people to rest their arms from all the crazy waving.
And about this bit, I was getting impatient because Soraru and Koma’n were no where to be seen.
So then Riseha followed up with Heart Rate #0822 which was amazing too.
So then Pokota came out again and sang Uta ni Katachi wa nai keredo. It was already amazing to begin with. ummm.
and then he started unbuttoning his shirt and basically pulled it down to reveal his chest. then he went over to the keyboard and basically hugged a really reluctant ZimuinG who kept trying to turn his face away from PKT, who was in the middle of burrowing his face in ZimuinG’s neck and…well, you get the idea.
So after that, the band started playing Bungaku Shounen no Yuuutsu which Mish and I knew was going to be Soraru; since he was singing in the past few live broadcasts and all and yeah.
but the music basically went on for like over 4 minutes and no one came out. Soraru being a troll as always. So when he finally came on, the crowd went crazy. Except that for the majority of the song, the lights were done so you couldn’t really see his face except for the chorus bits. Then Soraru trolled us because he pretend to strip and pull up his shirt but he didn’t. and he went along and sang the song followed by Nisoku Hokou which was really nice. It was my first time hearing it without auto tune tbh.
And then after that, Koma’n came out and they talked a little about being in HK and HK being really hot and all. Then Soraru went off. It’s like he wants to get off the stage asap. or something. #cry
So then Koma’n shooed everyone else off the stage, esp ZimuinG and took the piano. He then played && sang Rain Stops GoodBye. Q^Q but halfway through the song, ZimuinG came and stopped him to claim his place back as the keyboard. and the band came back as well along with Soraru sneaking in the shadows.
So Koma’n continued singing and then Soraru joined in with the harmonies and it was really beautiful except Soraru left immediately after the song was finished. So after Soraru left, Koma’n goes and sing Badbye. I guess it’s a “must” since he composed it and all.
And then afterwards since it was Koma’n’s birthday recently, Noaru came up and the whole crowd sang Happy Birthday to him. :3
Then Noaru went on with Karakuri Piero which was amazing. *A*
though there’re a lot of ballads in this live no?
anyways, HongKooong followed up with 40mP’s new song, Haru ni ichiban chikai machi. <33 it was amazing. her voice was so cute.
Then Saiya came back up again (and this point I was wondering when 96neko would come out again), and sang Netgame Haijin Sprechror. I wanted 96neko to sing it, but it was amazing all the same.
So then 96neko came up afterwards (lol my prayers were answered) and hummed the starting notes for magnet. then everyone was like: OMG. SCREAM SCREAM SCREAM SQUEALLLL (esp the boys in front of me). And I was like YAY. so the band played the first intro and the two missed the cue. since they were debating who’s luka who’s miku.
so the band played again. and they missed. again.
so the band played again. and they missed since they were hugging.
so the band played again. and they missed. (lol) since they still didn’t know who’s luka and who’s miku. so in the end they didn’t sing it.
wtf. they took trolling lessons from Soraru. D;
But then 96neko went and sang Shiryoku Kensa. and I got to hear her female voice LIVE. it was so beautiful but she used her alto voice again. :U damn it.
I just realized the grammar for this post is horrible. please don’t judge me.
That aside, after that, there was this huge pause and everyone was going WTF. When Soraru and Koma’n came up again and sang Nekomimi Archive. And well, you could only imagine how crazy it was.
So then after they finished they said that the next song was last and everyone was boo-ing. but they went off anyways. and it was a while before the girls (96neko, Saiya, Riseha, Noaru, HongKooong) came out wearing animal ears. Yes 96neko with nekomimi. asdlfawgaer.
Well. They sang PONPONPON for the finale. Saiya, Riseha and Noaru danced. omg. it was so cute and…well I hate the song but I sang along okay. it was amazing. then at the last chorus and the final refrain and stuff, the boys came out as well AND THEY DANCED TO PONPONPON.
SORARU. DANCED. PON PON PON. it was a sight to see. he was so adorable omggg.
Then they left. so we shouted ENCORE for like 4 minutes.
they changed into the ANS T-shirts. And sang Fire@Flower. (I KNEW, I KNEW, before the live we were talking about what songs would be sung and I was like: Fire@Flower) So it was really amazing.
Pokota was running around giving people high fives. So I was focusing on the stage when the people in front of me were going crazy. So I realized PKT was coming. so I stuck my hand out and slapped him in the face. D8 … and then my hands slipped down and molested his chest. 8D
well that happened in like a second so…
but that aside, it was really amazing. Then here comes the…I don’t even…
everyone screamed. He was wearing something underneath but when he stripped, you could see his abs. 8DDD cuz it pulled up his shirt. and then he threw the tshirt he stripped. I was standing too far back. DDDDDX I WANT THAT TSHIRT SO BADLY OKAY.
So then after Soraru stripped, he stripped Koma’n. who wasn’t wearing anything underneath. Koma’n threw his tshirt too and I just saw the girl who caught his tshirt tweet him.
so then Pokota followed the two and stripped. He wasn’t wearing anything underneath either. Koma’n took the chance and hugged PKT. TWO HALF NAKED MEN HUGGING. okay. then the Magnet BGM began to play. and everything. y’know. GHEYYY.
but then PKT threw his shirt too. he wanted to throw it a further backwards. (it was really close to where I was actually) but then the ball of cloth loosened and it landed in front. DX I missed PKT’s shirt too. god damn it.
so yes there was a lot of fan service and everything. and it was really amazing.
asldkfjawlgijwaliejawiejfalwejfawer. I want them to come again. but they caught someone taking a picture of them…so idk what will happen with that.
by the end of this, my throat hurts okay. I was screaming so much it was crazyyy.
On the side note, I will tell you a tale of a very lucky teddy bear.
So this fan decided to throw up a teddy bear to the group at the start of the LIVE (so PKT first). he caught the bear and then gave it back to the person. The person decided to put it up again and gave it to koma’n. who gave it to Soraru who gave it back to Koma’n who stuffed it in his shirt. HE STUFFED IT IN HIS SHIRT.
and then he placed it in front of the stage on the floor and left. And then 96neko and the other girls picked it up and placed it in front of the piano.
and it stayed there until the finale when PKT gave it back to the fan.
If I was that fan, I would never wash that teddy bear. omg. (that’s kinda disgusting but seriously though…)
well that concludes ANS Live in HK. it was really amazing.
the next thing to look forward too is Akiakane and PIKO coming to HK in a month. \ o /
best summer ever.
