My flimsy incoherent fan report~ KT 9uarter, 2015 ~  
9uarter

All I'm saying is that;

When Junno had watched the Art Of Life performance, he must have thought Tatsuya to be one sexy and should be almost naked beast ~ for him to have performed the AOL shuffle like that *rolls across the floor*

And apparently, Junno calls his mother, 'My Mother' lol

KAT-TUN 9uarter 2015 - May 9th & May 10th - Tokyo Dome

The concert concept I find to be very relevant and appropriate. It's like each member is equally represented as a 1/4 of a whole, all coming from a different direction a bit broken but somehow found themselves perfectly fit together by a [-] in the middle which completes and smooths the circle (like this), just like the shape and the mechanics of the stage - I'm sure by now you've seen pics of this on the news etc ^^

Setlist; May 9th pic, pic , pic // May 10th ~ the same except the shuffle and the 2nd encore - SUNRISE (I think)

This concert started with some of the songs that initially got me interested into KT. Some oldies but aways goodies like Rescue, One Drop, LIPS and GOLD!!!!

At the start of GOLD,  I'm pretty sure heaven heard my screams, because if you asked me what's my favourite KT song, then GOLD would probably be at the top of my head. But of course they didn't perform it fully. They never do which makes me want to bang my head. But the lead up to GOLD was surperb. It was fantastic with the costume - a mix and match of kimono and fur and some other things that make them look not like your elegant feudal lords but like gansters (take Junno's pic for example) and especially Tatsuya with the way he was walking like he's about to burn the whole place down without apology XD. As a matter a fact, after they changed clothes at the end of LOVING U, he threw the cigarette and Kame's litter 'caught fire' like this or this.

For COME HERE, the arrangement was different and goodly thought out. Though perhaps with the huge space etc, some of the sounds weren't clear but still it was an appreciated act.

MC - May 10th.

Well of course my JunDa heart was flipping and flapping and growing and I don't know how I survived with Junno telling Tatsuya, "Uepi Uepi Uepi, ai ai Aishiteru!!!!! after Junno said something about his hair being wet and cute and Tatsuya was like, 'well, you're always cute'. The camera flashed on Tatsuya after and he was just smiling and Maru and Kame were so taken aback then started to pretend to be vomitting at that lol. Of course Junno was shamelessly grinning. hehe LIKE THIS!!!

At another time during MC, Junno said something but no one heard and when asked to repeat he said it was ok but then Tatsuya started chanting 'Encore Encore Encore' and of course Junno can't resist and I think he said something like, 'are you ready?'

Also, hmm was it even the MC? I can't remember but Junno ended up doing his 'elbow dance' and in seconds Tatsuya was behind him doing it too... like this and THIS <333

Yes yes yes, all I'm writing about the MC is about JunDa, forgive me ><" but here's another JunDa piece. So NaKame are a very good combo. They play off each other very well, and while Maru was teasing how lame Junno's gag was and Junno whined calling 'Uepi' and Tatsuya was all comforting and put his arm around Junno's shoulder and led him off stage to change and said something to the effect of always watching him or being there for him~ something like this drawing. After Tatsuya 'excorted' Junno off stage, he talked about going over to Junno's house during his high school days~ so they were close enough for him to call Junno's mother baba (old woman). hehe

Also the MC was really ridiculous with NaKame being super hyper with they pretended to barf and other random gag acts that Junno asked the audience if we found it interesting. Later on while the nonsense continued, Tatsuya followed up with how interesting things are going - of course sarcasm. To me, it felt like a NaKame and JunDa thing with NaKame being all competitive that when JunDa had their consoling moment, NaKame would act out their (I think) Doraemon gag. The JunDa act like this!

The crowd was super excited for the shuffle again.  It was funny watching them butcher each other's solo haha

As it were;

May 9th;-
Kame -> Samurai Love Attack
Ueda -> Cresendo (basically just ran on stage and gobbled up bread)
Junno -> AOL (well as I said up top. Junno had this one down down down!!!!) pics and pics and the way he grabbed his crotch! pics
Maru -> Emerald

May 10th;-
Kame ->  Yankee Kata Omoi Chuu (haha he had the whole get up with the furry hat and was so excited that he ran down the stage)
Ueda -> 16 Seconds (basically just fooled around on stage with the chair and white cloth then took it up and said he's taking it home). This and This
Junno -> Step by Step (he really enjoyed this song. Well it involves dance so no helping Junno here)
Maru ->  Seishin (haha this was funny). It was funny how he had his fingers moving inside the dragon's mouth making real fun of the costume.

During the KT and Audience Shuffle, we sang REAL FACE and the video playing in the background was funny with Junno and Tatsuya boxing with Maru kneeling at Ueda's feet and then Kame was super close like if he'd moved in an inch further, then he would have kissed Maru <333

Other bits and pieces.
- Tatsuya smoked and I imagine it to be real since there was smoke.
- Junno cried - pics all over the place. I think it was during the encore that Maru embraced him around the shoulder and that was cute like THIS and THIS. The fans were surprised and my friend who was in another section said he gained some fans after that.
- Kame and Tatsuya played the guitar and which makes you want to slap them for doing a ballad like ARIGATOU ><
- While KameDa played the guitar, Maru and Junno sprayed smoke from a hose lol ~
- Nothing we don't already know, but Kame has really nice arms and I think he knows that and is proud of them since he was just showing them off being the only one sleeveless.
- Just before the shuffle (after Maru's mini beatbox corner) he walked over to the other members going all 'hello man' (in English) and the members' responses were hilarious. Kame had the 'annoyed' look while Tatsuya was acting like Maru didn't exist, while Junno was all smiles silently XD

So to sum things up, I'll be the first to say that I always bitch about my seating (be it butai or concerts), when in truth I've never had one that I can deem unforgivable and miserable. For the May 9th concert, I sat in 1st Stand to the side of the stage. This meant that I could see them when they passed on the moving trolleys but the down side being that I couldn't see the full set up of the stage. For the May 10th perf, I was 2nd Stand but central. The upside was that I could see everything!!!! This wide dome filled with lights, the stage set up and just about everyone ~ I could appreciate the beauty of everything and well... I suppose you can guess the down side of being that far XD

On the HYPHEN scene;

I'm someone who is able to do just about anything without feeling the need for company. But then, there are the KT concerts and Goods line. If there are a 100 people in the line then rest assured that 100 pairs of eyes will be staring in wonder at the strange foreigner attending KT concerts~ like wow XD But then while in the goods line I noticed just two steps away from me a man~ perhaps the same age as KT~ with his come Here bag and someone's uchiwa stuck inside. In this loooong line, he was the only guy I saw who was alone and he was just happily bouncing by himself ^^ And again! While at Starbucks, I saw another guy alone all trendy with his tight jeans and shades and hair nicely styled and with his 9uarter's bag with an uchiwa stuck inside. During the concert, I saw another guy who really looked like a thug with his big jeans and hat set backwards and he was waving Maru's ichiwa. And beside me on May 10th were two older women. I'm sure they're older than my mother by some years and my mum will be 50yrs soon. There were many children too~ like mothers brought their children as well as dads. And so I thought that KAT-TUN truly is amazing for being able to get all these varieties of people to support them.

My friend, who is Japanese and also a fan of other JE groups said that KT is the only group who sends shout outs to everybody. Men, women, fathers, mothers and they even encouraged the crowd to sing along with them. And I thought that was a really nice thing. Again KT has set the trend for something good XD.

More on the HYPHENS scene. I enjoy drinking. Bars are one of my favourite places. And so while my friend and I chatted over this extremly seasoned and salted dry pasta and having beers, two ladies started a conversation with us about how salty the snack was it and that they can't finish their own. This conversation then led into 9uarter talk since they saw my pin and my friend's T-shirt. What was funny is that one these ladies, Kame is actually her ichiban but yet, she ended up buying Junno's uchiwa, not Kame's but Junno's and even she was laughing at the strange twist of her heart ^^

Another great feeling is that while I was leaving the concert venue, I saw a long line and asked my friend what's happening, and she said it's for people who want to join the fan club. So I guess for the 10th Anniverary, KT will be getting some new fans XD

*phew* I get the feeling that there was a lot more I wanted to write but I can't remember now as well as this is far longer than I intended to write. But here's the audio recording for May 10th. It's not the best quality since I was always looking over my back and again I stand out soooo~ but it does get better, at least from the MC (maybe) and it will give you an idea of just how raving mad the crowd and the energy were.

I tried converting it to Mp3 since the file is 823MB but~ hmm I decided to post the original in the end.

:: MEGA ::  (2hrs43mins) ~ sorry. I don't have the time to split and add mirrors but anyone is free to do so.

And news tidbits gave a good overview~ youtube

Note for the audio file; The part with Maru beatboxing was funny. Basically, he didn't talk. More like his actions had subtitles and as he beatboxed, he would ask the crowd how it was and they would clap. Some subs were nonsense~ I suppose they represent sounds in Japanese (that I didn't get)... something like, for example in English 'hehe and hahaha' stand for laughing but in Japanese in it's 'fufufu' so it may be something like that XD ~ wait for tv or fanvids to see ^^

What else can I say, it was an amazing concert that even gave us a second encore and the crowd was still shouting for more. And as usual, one of my favourite parts of KT's concert is that moment everyone holds hand and shouts, "WE ARE KAT-TUN!".

And aslfjsffsdsf at the way Junno holds Tatsuya's hand~ pic

LYAAAAN!!! *hugs* Thanks so much for the fanrepo!! *w* Lol I had my fill from twitter but I like how you wrote it all >w<

"When Junno had watched the Art Of Life performance, he must have thought Tatsuya to be one sexy and should be almost naked beast ~ for him to have performed the AOL shuffle like that *rolls across the floor*"

Exactly!! Omg I mean the papa pics just say it all @@ I'm just angry this wasn't captured anywhere on DVD T.T I mean...I really hope it was because dammit why can't Junno ever get some AOL action on tape!? TwT

And all that JunDa rabu on MC >w< I must listen to it! Lol reading tweets on Nakame's reaction reminded me of kids seeing their parents act all lovey dovey in front of them XDXD

Aww and the hyphen scene you added in sounds really sweet, hyphens come from all walks of life huh? >w< Okay, I'm saying this but I'm dead serious on going to their con next year for their 10th anniversary (the rest of our JunDa group are hopefully trying to aim for this too?) Aaaah if we make it we definitely need to have a junda circle meetup!! *w* (and get some drinks and flail over junda goodness too)


Ugh..okay I need to go lie down...thinking of Junno actually saying aishiteru to Uepi on stage and among other JunDa rabu moments is giving me a sugar rush. @@ I hope Uepi hugged him off camera after his little cry ><

Again thanks so much for the report >w< I really want to flail with you in person next year TwT *hugs*

I'm just angry this wasn't captured anywhere on DVD

The forces always find a way to make us suffer. And I was hoping that day 2 would have Ueda singing one of Junno's song but... *sigh* It would be nice if there's a fanrecord somewhere.

Yes! start saving from now for next year! It will be a grand affair and lots of flailing to do XD

I hope Uepi hugged him off camera after his little cry ><

I hope so too. A lil behind the scene cuddling and lending shoulder *__* just imagining it gives me a sugar rush!

You're welcome. Twitter is too fast for me to keep up hehe

OMG !!!
Thank you so much for the report and the link.
I´m so happy (even I can´t go to the con) that the focus this time was mostly on Junno,Ueda and Maru.
Sounds weird I know but my ichiban gets a lot of focus.normally.
So glad Junno explode to max and fans see he is not only the *Clown&Acrobat*in the band.
Cheerioh my dear !!

I hope the audio isn't too hard on your ears ><'

and lol at;

So glad Junno explode to max and fans see he is not only the *Clown&Acrobat*in the band.

They've now added in the totally sexy part ^^ Too bad his half nakedness won't be on the dvd (well so it seems)
serial_translatserial_translat on May 11th, 2015 04:05 pm (UTC)
Woah such a great report. Thanks for that.

I agree with your definition of Junno's AOL perf. lol

Wah all that Junda-ness. lol I was smiling like an idiot in my mind while reading you.

I'm not really enough convinced to buy the dvd, I'll see what they'll propose as versions before saying "I'll take it or not". *since I changed my mind in the last moment for come here*

Kame has nice arms ? Well... In my point of view, Tatsuya's are FAR better.

"My friend, who is Japanese and also a fan of other JE groups said that KT is the only group who sends shout outs to everybody. "

Ahem, I disagree. As far as I know, I don't remember Kat tun ever doing that actually. For instance I never saw them doing that for men (like me XD) whereas Kanjani8 does it every single time during a concert (Hina).

They're gonna take all of your money again with that future dvd. XD

kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on May 12th, 2015 09:37 am (UTC)
You're welcome ^^
I was a bit worried that I was too incoherent and didn't write as I had imagined ><'

But yeah! after you see a preview I'm almost pretty sure you'll want you own copy. It was really a different set up with the song rearrangements so that's a treat.

Tatsuya does have strong arms but Kame is a bit bulkier... both sexy in it's own way.

About my friend... yeah IDK but maybe she meant KT calling out and getting on screen a variety of people~

And yes! this dvd will again take all my money. I hope by then I can restock my purse ^^

I just watched a bit of media coverage to get an idea of the stage and costumes...
wow the stage was impressive!
I guess a lot of squinting to catch their expressions even on the big screen!
They really meet your expectation right: singing GOLD, singing KISSx3 as first songs while you were still warming up, kame showing off his arms and lot of JunDa moments! ^__^
The couples are set, they'll keep the trend for a while for sure!

The shuffle is truly hilarious to watch! >.<
Not really the best performance but really funny!

LOL The strange foreigner! I remember the feeling really well! And I even experienced becoming a topic on twitter (the four foreigners at Jin's concert! ^^').
Guys proudly showing the goods are nice! I like the feeling of being a big eclectic family! And yeah to moms bringing their kids!

I'm glad you had a great time!
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on May 12th, 2015 09:32 am (UTC)
Ah! you mentioned the media which now reminds that I haven't seen them yet ><' I'll go watch in a bit and slowly catch up with everything else XD

I know... when they started with KISSx3 I was just 'as expected' but strange enough just watching them move on stage was enough for me XD
When LIPS started even the crowd was surprised and people kept going USO USO!!! lol

The shuffle was really hilarious. They really do enjoy trolling each other.

Gosh of the entire concert I doubt I saw 10 foreigners. I mean non-asian foreigners so yeah, what?! you made it to twitter?! what was the talk about you guys there?

:D :D :D I was going kkkkyyyyaaaaaa just by reading your report. Thank you so much for writing it!

And I'm so happy you had fun both days!!! And so happy JunDa are getting on the spotlight :)))))))))))))) They definitely deserve it!! :D

The hyphens part that was so awesome and even the theme of these concerts :))) Thank yyyuuuuuuuu
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on May 12th, 2015 09:27 am (UTC)
Woah I'm happy my incoherent blabbering made sense to you hehe
The concert was great. Even more the last night... maybe it's because it was the last night or maybe the JunDa sweetness or maybe BOTH!!!

KAT-TUN really do plan out exactly what they want to deliver to us. So sweet and thoughtful of them <3
sanneloveskt: come Here 2014sanneloveskt on May 12th, 2015 10:43 am (UTC)
Haha,tbh I think Kame lost during the con his
No.1 Sex Idol In JE Trophy to Junno.
Shit happens..Best parts are never on DVD or?
Not listen to it till now.I need a very *empty place* or my surrounding will be deaf.

~Sanne
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on May 13th, 2015 09:27 am (UTC)
haha Kame as his usual sexy self too but Junno's lil stunt is more memorable <333

Still keeping fingers crossed for extras on that dvd!

Hey finally I got some time ^^.

Thank you so much for the report ^^ you certainly do love this pair ^^ I think when i think of them it goes like the SM couple :) but it's only me ^^.

The MC sounded really fun i certainly pray that it will be on a beautiful cheap DVD :).

I saw the news report but i want for more cause they always show the first song (KISS3) and a glimpse only of the rest ... I am craving for the Japanesque medley and the rock one ^^ and damn RAY :)
I also really like the costumes more extravagant than in Come here tour like more ...KAT-TUN ^^.

The song choise is great except the miss of "you are delicious" and "in the dark"...

Can't wait for the DVD and i do hope they announce an album and tour soon ...greedy hyphen is greedy ^^.

OK got go Watch Tame tabi before work :)

Again thanks a lot big hugs...

Oh i got the same feeling when i queue up for goods at Yokohama last year ^^

And Hyphen guys are perfect without them it would have taken me 3hours to get out of Yoyogi stadium last year ^^

what is your next concert now ? what about the summer meeting ? you hit ?
kissmegreen (Lyan)kissmegreen on May 22nd, 2015 11:13 am (UTC)
you certainly do love this pair ^^

hahha of course! I'll give you time to choose a favourite and then an OTP of your own XD

as for "you are delicious" and "in the dark", I guess they gave them a rest since they sang them for come Here.

OK got go Watch Tame tabi before work :)

Tame Tabi tonight!!!!! XD

what is your next concert now ?

heheh it's funny you should ask since I went to one last night ><
It's a band called People in the Box. They're not popular but they do my kind of music so I had ridiculous fun! They're more post rock/acoustic style~ They have another one on Sunday and if I'm up to it, I might just go again >< it's like half the price of a KT concert ticket that I can just buy from the conbini hehe

what about the summer meeting ? you hit ?

I don't even know what's happening here. But I did hit for Kame's butai *dances*

Happy Friday hun! * hugs*
