~Dream of the Last Snow~


Didn't feel like writing much last night when I got home from Versailles' oneman. I think we all were a little bummed about the news of Versailles going major. I am happy for the band; it must be great for them having started their activities only last year, and already be this successful. But as a fan..... :/ I'll miss the small livehouses, the instores, joining my friends in the front rows at lives doing the songs' coreography. I hope the band won't grow too distant.


Anyway, just got back from Kaya's x'mas live which was really enjoyable ^_^ Unfortunately Lil' and Veronica didn't join him for this event, but there were lots of other guests there, including Anzi (matenrou opera), Leda (DELUHI), atsuto and Shingo (Sugar). And Kamijo was present in form of his rose from last night's live, lying on top of one of the amps XD
These guests, together with Kaya, formed the session band "Harem". (atsuto suggested they should call the band "The Kayas" (ザ・カヤース), to which Kaya went "ouch ouch ouch D:" lol, denied). Did people hear "Barairo no hibi" yet? They made it into a rock tune tonight. Why couldn't they put this version on the single instead??!!! D: It's so much better than the recorded song. 

All the regular male dancers were there, but so were six female dancers (and Aya and Kitty were not among them). The girls and Yui were the opening act, and did a short dance number before Yui suddenly started singing! :D That was cool.

At Kaya's last live people seemed to have calmed down a lot for Rose Jail. No elbows in my ribs, no jumping on my feet or fists slammed into my face. Obviously that was a rare one time experience. It was more violent than ever tonight. Paaaiin!! But at the same time it's a lot of fun, so I would never leave the front for the sake of getting less bruises :p (though I almost lost my balance this time, and I was surrounded by tall guys, so falling down could have turned ugly...)


For once I'm actually looking forward to go to HOLIDAY tomorrow, after having spent the last couple of nights at bigger venues. It will be nice to be able to sit down on the floor whenever you want, and not have any difficulty breathing because you're completely squashed between tall-guy and his even taller friend....

I'm waiting for my copy of Last Snow to arrive. :x It sucks to know that there's a better version than what's on the single.

It would be nice if they had some cameras there tonight that I simply didn't notice, so that the sessions band's performance might be available for everyone else later :) Judging by this performance, and his earlier lives as the vocalist of Hizaki grace project, he really does a great job with rock music. Wish he'd include these events in either a DVD or other release one day...

I'm thinking the same thing - I'd like to hear these rockified songs one day, either on a DVD or some other future release. ^^

lol "the Kayas". XD

atsuto said he had been thinking of a name while he was in the US (Sugar were just there). He looked so surprised and confused when Kaya crumpled over, clutching his stomach going 'ouch ouch ouch ouch', and all he could say was "oh....solly...・_・" x)


(btw, Yui has his own CD now XD )

Yui? What's the name of the CD? I'd look into it but I'm on my slow phone atm. X__x
(Definitely sounds like something to look into, though. X) )

I don't know the name of the CD >_< (didn't buy stuff because of the very long line in front of the merch tables). Also don't know if it's on sale anyplace else (yet), but I'll let you know if I see it somewhere x) I suppose the music on it is similar to the song he performed last night (which was typical japanese boyband pop, with lyrics such as 'Kiss me! I want to kiss you! dance!dance!dance!')

menmenmen hvordan var Versailles-konserten? Hadde de nye fotosett? Stort sceneshow? おしえて~!

For det første hadde de nye kostymer... igjen! (Teru er om mulig enda mer naken enn før)

Konserten var bra med masse sanger, konfetti og levende ild og greier (cc. lemon hall er kinda digert og vi hadde gode fanclub-billetter). Men så kom den der World major Debut-greia, og oss fra gjengen du vet om ble litt "wtf!wtf!wtf!wtf! WHYYY??? D: " etter det. De skal ha en siste indie-turne i vår, som avsluttes med en 5-dagers live i mai.

Det var både gamle og nye fotosett. Og du vet Sympathias vifte-med-usynlig-lighter-del? Det er nå blitt til vifte-med-rose-som-skifter-farger :D De selger en rose som går over i forskjellige farger av seg selv. Den er fin ^__^

Teru burde bare droppe kostyme rett og slett.. :P Hvordan så Hizaki ut?

Får sørge for å få sett de masse på den siste turneen da. Men Kaya er da også blitt major uten å ha blitt såå stor el..?

Den rosen høres litt fin ut og litt cheezy.... o_O;;
Så at Alice & the Pirates har fått sånne egne Versailles-klær ting. Spørsmålet er jo hvorfor de ikke selger den fine hatten til Jasmine?? :P

Hizaki sin kjole var....rød (surprise! XD ) en av de røde kjolene hans, er denne den peneste. Den har mer shiny stoff enn de andre, og er litt mer tettsittende på overkroppen.

Versailles er mye større enn Kaya :/ De spiller i større livehus og har turnert utenfor Japan flere ganger. Folk snakker allerede om opptredner i Budokan, og mange Versailles-fans omtaler ikke konsertene i mai som "the last indie lives", men som "the last lives". Til og med Jennifer har tenkt å begynne å bli med meg på E'm-konserter i steden nå som vi kommer til å ha så mye ekstra konsert-tid...

Rosen er FIN! Fargene er ikke knæsj, men begynner sterkt i midten av rosen og sprer seg utover kronbladene. Stilken kan tvinnes rundt håndleddet sånn at man ikke trenger å bekymre seg for å måtte holde den hele tiden.

Hva skal du med hatten til Jasmine, når du kan få smykket til Kamijo for bare 126,000 yen..? :P

Wish I could have seen you at the Versailles thing but I was up on the 2nd level and then they corralled me into a different area for the little after-party. D:

Anzi had mentioned to me about the Kaya live and it sounds like it was really cool. Woulda been neat to see it. You can't get a much more talented bunch of session players than dudes from Matenrou, Sugar, and Deluhi, to be quite honest. :)

I didn't even know you were there D: We (me, Jen, amiyu, people) were still outside the building when some musicians started coming down the stairs, but I guess you stayed longer..

The session band was definitely the best thing about that live. It made me really look forward to see Deluhi next month too :)(already seen the other bands)
