Dis Inferno V

Just got home from the Dis Inferno, and it's late so I'm tired; but wanted to write a few words about the show before going to bed.

The first part of the show was pretty random. I may write more about it later. Among other things, they showed various "behind-the-scenes"-pics and video clips from the EU tour. Mana looked like (-.-)v in most of them. Seth and K commented on the pictures and video while they were being shown and kept repeating "piisu" every time Mana did the v-sign. It was quite cute ^^  K also did some sort of hide impression, with a bright yellow jacket and green guitar.

Mix Speaker's, Inc. were on before Moi dix Mois. I haven't been following their music, and only know of them because of Aya and Seek. The first rows consisted of M10M fans, and most of them stood there like zombies, so I figured the least I could do was to try to show the band some enthusiasm, even if I had no clue about their songs. So I stood there feeling like an idiot, doing the movements the tight space (the very, very tight space)  would allow me to, drawing some unwanted attention to myself. But I've been on stage as a musician lots of times and know what a difference it makes to see people in the audience pay attention to the effort you're making. I did enjoy their performance though. I don't find their music all that interesting, but they're a fun group to watch. And I'm glad Aya kept to the side of the stage were I was standing.

Moi dix Mois' songs are a bit of a blur inside my head right now. But I loved the energy among the audience, even if I was hit pretty hard in the head several times -_-
I found it a bit difficult to get some proper contact with some of the members, but Mana and K both took care of giving as many fans as possible some attention. And Mana should teach K how to clap hands with the fans <_< Mana touched my hand really gently, like it should be done. K actually hit me ಠ_ಠ Thanks K, ouch..... ( A friend once mentioned being hit by K too. He should stop that D:  )
Somewhere in their set, M10M also performed a new song. I guess we'll get to hear it again on the next album. I didn't catch the name of it. Another fan thought it was "Dis Irea", but didn't hear it clearly either, so she's not sure.

The last part of the show was awsome XD Sugiya and Seth were reindeers, and Mana was santa (K told us he should be called Mana-santa instead of Mana-sama now). But instead of a regular santa costume, Mana's coat was blue (of course; it was a christmas-y version of his old chanchako) and his hat was black. He threw gifts from his gift bag (blue plastic balls with "dis inferno V" written on them). K also threw a few of them into the audience (but only after putting the entire ball in his mouth). 

After this, they performed "Can't take my eyes off of you". To see Mana dance along to this song was surreal (and cute) o_o But it was a lot of fun. There were giant balloons flying around, but they were destroyed pretty quickly.

Now I want to know where the video of this is going to end up D: If it's simply for Mana's private use only or if parts of it actually will be released later on.


Stuff that happened after the concert:
On my way home I had to change trains at Tokyo station. And I managed to run into Juka there o__O He's hard to miss with his silver-coloured hair. And I think he recognized me, cause when he saw me, he suddenly made an effort to go in a half circle around me while trying to hide his face with his scarf, before looking back at me to see if I was still looking at him (it's not like the scarf's gonna make you invicible, Juka XD). And he wore the exact same jacket as in the "fall of leaves..." PV... low budget anyone? XD I just smiled at him and walked on.

Ah I wish I could have gone~ >< (I'm always saying that in my comments to you, sorry XD;;) It sounds like it was really fun ^_^ I think I would done the same as you ^^;; I often feel bad when no one in the audience does anything and the band is trying hard to put on a good show. But that's so funny you ran into Juka! Maybe he was at Dis Inferno ^^

I don't think he was at the Dis Inferno. He was coming from the direction I was going in, so he must have been somewhere else. He could clearly see where I had been though, since I had a plastic bag with a large M10M logo on it ^^;;

There was a Juka clone standing next to my friend during the show though XD

And she must have been a big Juka fan. XD

The show looks like it was a lot of fun.
Mix Speaker Inc is a cool band, not on my top, but I do enjoy their music.
east I could do was to try to show the band some enthusiasm, even if I had no clue about their songs.

How so?
I can't wait to hear the new song, and to attend my first m10m concert >_<
The Juka thing... that's... O_O amazingly random. Juka seems so cute with his scarf thing lol.

I've played various instruments since I was five years old, and also attended several music schools for many years, so that resulted in many performances.

And about Juka... I KNOW! I was really tired and wanted to get home as quick as possible. So I was annoyed at all the *Random Japanese who's walking slowly right in front of me.. Random Japanese who bumps into me.. Random Japanese with silver hair...wait a sec O.O* It was weird seeing him without make-up too. I don't think I've seen any make-up less pics since his early M10M days.

Well, it hasn't exactly been that many days since the last time he saw me :p

And I think K might have been wearing rings or something. It certainly felt like he did >_<.

No problem ^^

Maybe K just miscalculated the distance to my hand? o.o They did keep pointing out that he was a "wild beast" though XD

Sugiya was particularly cute with his full head covering reindeer...thing. ^^

I saw Juka at the SAS x'mas events recently, and was standing right in front of him there. I guess my hair colour makes me easier to recognize.

Wow~
Sounded like a great show. Too bad I didn't have such nice experience from M10M's live. I used to attended once or twice but felt like I didn't really enjoyed their show so I kinda stop.:(

Ah, you ran into Juka at the station! That's so cool though!XD How could he expect people not to recognize him when he is wearing the same coat he wore in his PV?XD It's just so funny.

Not far from me then :) I was in the front on that side, pressed against the barrier between the crowd and the stage.
