E'm @ 渋谷BOXX


E'm~grief~: still weird.

They changed their setlist a bit for tonight's live:
1. Infinity Daze (new song)
2. Pains of aspiration
MC
3. Eternal melody




They also changed their intro. Instead of standing on stage with their face covered by masks, they all entered one by one today, to a different instrumental tune than before. They opened with one of their new songs (samples are up on their OHP), and it was pretty long. I wish they'd have replaced one of the other songs instead of Seelenheil though. I love that song live (along with the old intro part). The beginning of Infinity Daze was very noisy (a lot more so than the recorded version judging by the sample). Unfortunately the noise continued throughout the part where we're supposed to hear Rita's voice more clearly. But I guess they can fix that for later lives, and the sample sounds fine.

Except for Yuuze, the members looked like a mess ( ´ ▽ ` ) Majyu had curled the black half of his hair (corkscrews?), Cecir had attached more of the head-eating dreads to his (the colour and texture doesn't match with anything), and Rita had curled some of his hair, straightened some of it, and attached a couple of long curly extensions (it was like three different hairstyles at once). At least they're keeping it interesting...

The MC was mostly "Cecir time" tonight as well. Again; why is Cecir the one who has to read the list of forthcoming lives? <__< He couldn't look more awkward and uncomfortable if he tried. It's come to the point where the crowd starts laughing as soon as Rita says "...And now Cecir will talk", before he even reaches the microphone. It got even worse when he got stuck at the words "Under Code Production". (of all things...) 
But apart from this small "How am I supposed to pronounce this? D: "-incident, they looked like they enjoyed themselves a lot, and even though he turned away and recovered quickly, we got Yuuze to smile :D That's two lives in a row now. Both times, it's happened as soon as he's come over on Cecir's side of the stage. Do we amuse him? Do we look strange to him? Is one of us pulling funny faces when he comes over? (The two sides are weirdly different. It sometimes feels as if we're watching two completely different live shows. I glanced over at Yuuze's audience today, and we're not even doing the same coreography XD)

No magic at the end of the show this time either. Like last time, the final part consisted of Majyu running around with a chainsaw, with his mask on. But this time it didn't even last for 10 seconds, so I doubt anyone there seeing E'm for the first time (not being aware that the band always adds something like this before the curtain falls) understood why on earth they would randomly include this in their set).


The band's next live is a 2-day sponsored event in March. This should hopefully mean they'll be able to do more than three songs for once. (And more time for Yuuze's magic).

I wonder what the crowd in front of Rita will do, once he gets a crowd (There were a couple of people standing in front of him today, but as far as I know, they were Cecir fans ^^; )

The chainsaw thing made even less sense this time than last month when he was actually running around up there for quite a while. Tonight, he just ran across the stage, fell down when he came to the other side... and that was it. Us: wait, what? o_o

You'd think that was an English phrase he'd be able to pronounce, wouldn't you? x)

Their lives are definitely worth checking out. I just wish they did more of them. They weren't even supposed to do any lives between Jan. 23 and March 20. This one was a late addition to their schedule.

Yeah, I think you should be able to pronounce the name of your record label, English or not!

Hoepfully I'll catch them next time. In the meantime I'm thinking of getting their mini album that is released on 18 March.

Poor Cecir XD
Not pronouncing your own lable right is kind sad too 'XD
And this really amused me:

Also what the hell is up with the chainsaw?
I imagine it somewhat...funny yet out of place?

A lot of things are out of place with this band XD Yuuze is always waving around a glittery fairy star wand. We have to applaude him when he "magically" makes smoke appear at the side of the stage (i.e. a hidden staff guy makes the smoke appear where Yuuze is pointing.) This time, Cecir was unfortunate enough to stand in the wrong place, so the smoke was released right into his face, and he got pieces of the dry ice all over him ^^;

I think I would laugh so much at their concerts! XD
I don't really know their music, but already those things seem to be worth seeing them live.

Let's hope they're still this awkwardly entertaining when you do x)
