it came... and then it went. Blue Eyes butai report and~  
One Piece Episode 566
My last fews days have been eventful. Thought I find it unfair that after building up so much excitement for them, that they just came, made me happy then disappeared.

First, it started off with my new love... well not really new, I've been following them around for a while now but more and more, I've realised that I really love the music and acoustic of this band.. yes, the name of the band is People In the Box.

people in the box
And their concert was everything brilliant. From the Tour Title空から降ってくる vol.8 〜正真正銘の全国ツアー!これ以上の全国ツアーってある?ねぇー?ねぇぇぇーーー?編〜 (haha) to the instruments themselves. They are what you would call post rock. They are really nothing like KAT-TUN which is why I've always thought that KAT-TUN is really my exception to everything in music. I can love KAT-TUN without caring much for their music (though, it does help to have music to my taste). Strange but yeah. I don't even know much about the members of People in the Box, but for sure, I love their music and the guys are funny and eccentric. The concerts are as simple as... Idek... but so simple with staging and effects, but they electrify their audience with their energy in a soothing way at one point then at another, makes you want to go bungee jumping lol... yes, extremes.

and then;

blue eyes
Blue Eyes: Bunkamura~ Cocoon November 2, 2015 @ 18:30

Well Tatsuya was right when he joked about not needing to act much for his role in his butai  『Blue Eyes』.His costume was ordinary... just like an ordinary Japanese Yakuza (there are pics flying around the web) and his hair is as we see in bangumi etc and Tatsuya by nature is a 'punk' so playing a punk isn't much a challenge, I thought. He delivered his lines well. His soliloquy and monologues were well done but as for acting, there wasn't much a challenge that made you go 'Awwwww'. He did his job, basically. Which is why this report is this short.

I did enjoy his maniac laughing while others are dying in sadness and I couldn't help but smile, thinking 'that's so Uepi' when he was[spoiler]laughing while shooting the lead dead. It reminded me of how he lit the litter with Kame in the Quarter concert ^^

His time on stage was... well, at times I thought he was missing for too long. He showed up pretty early in the play and stayed a good while, but then of the 1hr 35mins of the first part, he showed up maybe 30mins in total... maybe 45, I guess. And then in the second part of 1hr 05mins... maybe 20mins. I felt. Well as expected since he wasn't the lead, but when Sam!Tatsuya was on stage, you really felt his presence so that's a good achievement.

At the end of the butai I cracked up laughing at how... and I'll quote exactly what I wrote in his last butai report "...he came out looking all grumpy and annoyed like, 'okay, I'm tired. Now, go home' (lol)". And at the second curtain call, he came out even grumpier and then he made a face he would make as if annoyed when the Lead said something to him. The whole theatre was laughing (haha).

In any case, I'm glad I went. I don't need to see it again but any chance to see how naturally sexy and handsome Tatsuya is, is worth a shot!

And to finish the excitement... CamuiGakuen

gakuensai
GACKT... well actually, Seito Kaicho (who is GACKT).No joke, this man will be the end of me. I was sulking when I didn't win premium tickets which would've put me within the first 15 rows of the theatre but when I arrived, I was very pleased to realise that my seat was just 3 rows behind the premium seats... not only that, but I was in the centre and just one seat from the aisle and my heart stopped, when GACKT... well Seito Kaicho (Student Council President) walked right by me. The whole place erupted with screams from the women and shouts from the men. It was fantastic! I found it really nice how he could walk passed without fans crawing at him the way KAT-TUN fans would've behaved.

That's another thing I've noticed about these 3 fandoms I follow. For KAT-TUN... fans are always so well dressed to impress... even at concerts... while for People in the Box... people were well comfortable wearing jeans and hoodies and hats and all looked like indie punks. I love this atmosphere. so relaxing and more like me who hates dressing up.... while for GACKT... well he has a wider mix since all ages follow him. But you can definitely see the rock genre in fans.


I feel like November started off great for me. Now, I'm just waiting for KAT-TUN's and Kame's next big announcement. They really have me biting my nails...

I heard from my TL that this play is more complicated then Toumin Kuma. Even when they read the book (novelized script), they couldn't really understand much, so I was curious what the story is really about >_<

Also, Tacchan had also said himself that there isn't the need for him to really work on his character lol but I'd love to see this Sam in action even though Tacchan is already a チンピラ in a way, at least not until he had his short hair xD

Reading your report though, it seems that Sam didn't appear that much but my TL said it was considerably a lot so... xD

At the end of the butai I cracked up laughing at how... and I'll quote exactly what I wrote in his last butai report "...he came out looking all grumpy and annoyed like, 'okay, I'm tired. Now, go home' (lol)". And at the second curtain call, he came out even grumpier and then he made a face he would make as if annoyed when the Lead said something to him. The whole theatre was laughing (haha).
This part though, made me giggle and it totally hit me in the kokoro because I just LOVE annoyed Tacchan it makes me go all M for him XDD /oops

One of the JP fans on my TL told me that she's going to the play 5 times so I'm like wow woman you should give one of your tickets to me (´;ω;`) but of course I didn't really say that to her lol

Btw, since you've been to both of his plays, I'm curious if you have the same impression as the others (and by others I mean JP fans I talk to on my TL), most of them thinks that Ueda is a stage play material, of course I would want to agree on that because well.. bias haha but since I've never been to one (cries).. I can't really comment much on that. What do you think though? Is Ueda really a Stage Play material? :D

also, regardless of the report's length, thanks for sharing the experience!♡

"they couldn't really understand much"

I'm somehow relieved to hear this. I really did think it was my poor Japanese skills but yeah, even with watching the acting I could usually figure it out but points of this play were over my head. I did understand the last butai better and even Kame's last I understood better... and those were really abstract pieces... which had me a bit worried because this butai seemed as if it would be more straight forward but...

I guess you could say he did appear for a reasonable amount of time. When he does appear, it's in chunks so that gives you a good taste hehehe 'taste' of him. I mean... considering the length of the play 3hrs05mins (I think), he did get good stage play time... but going to see him means that I always want to see him... so I guess in that respect, going 5 times is understandable XD

"...most of them thinks that Ueda is a stage play material"

Yeah. I'll agree to that. He's really good up there on stage. Expressive and uses his entire body to portray his role. I thought this from seeing his last play as well. And didn't he also mention he's suitable for stage plays?

Annoyed Tatsuya is too cute... makes me want to tease him more and more.

hmm... he seems to get a lot of profound plays lol I guess it's in his nature too considering he himself can be so immersed too and that really shows in his music♡

I guess in that respect, going 5 times is understandable XD
in my case, I'd prolly stop paying attention to the story by the 3rd time and would just stare blindly at Sam XD

Yeah. I'll agree to that. He's really good up there on stage. Expressive and uses his entire body to portray his role. I thought this from seeing his last play as well.
IseeIsee! I'm happy to hear that!

And didn't he also mention he's suitable for stage plays?
I think there a glimpse of him saying that somewhere in my memory but it's too vague lol xD but either way I'm glad he thinks so too I hope he get more stage plays in the future!

"that really shows in his music"

This is probably the reason too... he's very artistic and creative and theatre is for people like this ^^

I hope his next butai will have him leading it!

Wow you've been happily busy :D So glad you've been having fun! BTW got curious about "People in the box" and will go listen to it :P

*sigh* I sort of wish I could see Uepi on stage, I'm really curious. And now even more after your report. I guess he wasn't the main lead so not a full time appearance on stage :(( But I'm sort of on a "proud mom" mood to know that he did great on his role :D

GACKT it also reminds me that I REALLY need to go listen to him, I've been meaning to and I always get side tracked...

"KAT-TUN... fans are always so well dressed to impress... even at concerts.."

Yeah... I noticed that... felt reaaalllyy underdressed when I showed up in jeans, sneakers and checkered shirt on my waist to last years tour ><

"I found it really nice how he could walk passed without fans crawing at him the way KAT-TUN fans would've behaved."

That's really awesome! I love it when the artist does that :D As long as the fans behave appropriately ^^' KAT-TUN tried that last year and they gave up midway.... *sigh*

Thank you so much for your reports :D I always love reading them!! Now I'll resume to bitting my nails waiting for news >

DID YOU LISTEN???

I would recommend some songs but there are so many I like that I'm getting dizzy *___* People in the Box. Already I'm thinking of how I can ditch work to go see them next week in Nagoya *bad girl*

But for starters, what about Saints/Seijatachi Perhaps you'll fall for that one first as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADLJ7lC7erM

Their info is very hard to find. So I'm buying their CDs.

I 'complained' that I wanted Uepi more on stage but considering he wasn't the lead, he was on for a good bit of time. Thinking about it now, even the Lead wasn't on stage all the time... It's a strange thing.

Please go listen to GACKT!!!!!!

I always feel under dressed for KT events. This time I saw a girl in a wedding dress >< lol I just can't with these people.
crism79: KAT-TUN New Year bakacrism79 on November 5th, 2015 10:25 pm (UTC)
Wedding dress?????? >.< Lol I'll always be underdressed at a KT concert! Nothing can compete with that!!

I will go listen to GACKT!! He does have an INSANE discography... not really sure where to start ^^' Wow! But I'll get some songs randomly :P

" Already I'm thinking of how I can ditch work to go see them next week in Nagoya *bad girl* "

Bad bad girl!! eheheheheh so can you ditch work *wink* Their sound is not what I normally listen but I'll also give them a listen :D But maybe first GACKT ;)

It was 90° last time, right ? lol
