Versailles 5DAYS

Two lives down, two more to go.
I won't be able to write reports of these Versailles lives, but I want to write something.

The 「International Night」 was fun! :D First of all, I had ticket #1, so that in itself automatically made the live pretty awesome. Though I ended up spending a lot of the time tying to avoid getting pushed into Kamijo, or getting his knee in my face every time he leaned over us. But at least I got a better look at his pants and boots than usual. Too bad I don't cosplay, cause that would have been a perfect chance to check for details.

I was surprised at how many foreigners actually showed up for this live :D Hopefully the band was pleased enough to want to repeat something like this in the future. Though we were a decent amount of people, it was still few enough for it to feel more like a private live. (and it's fun meeting more foreign fans!)

After the live was over, some people from a TV program decided to treat us for dinner and drinks ^^ Having had a busy day with traveling and going to the live, without much time for eating, a free meal sounded pretty good, even if they had to film us while eating.


As for today's 「Girl's Only」... There's a sign above the door at Rock May Kan that say "capacity: 170 people". They had sold at least 300 fanclub tickets. And then there were regular sale tickets as well (Don't know how many. At least 100?) Half an hour before the live started, the room was already getting uncomfortably hot. Halfway through the live, everyone in the front area was pretty much soaked in both our own and everyone else's sweat. Our hair was getting stuck onto other people and pulled out. I don't think I've ever felt this gross during a live, not even Versailles' live in Sweden (which was bad). And we were just girls. Tomorrow the guys will be there as well. I don't think that will make it any better D:
Fortunately everyone (at least the people around me + others I talked to) were really nice and careful during the live. No one were violent, and people seemed generally more talkative and happy tonight :)

Versailles did a couple of new songs. They're also changing costumes each night. First night was the Revenant Choir/Lyrical Sympathy outfits, second was NOBLE, and tonight was Prince & Princess. Wonder what they'll be wearing on Sunday...


Not sure if I want to stand in the middle of the hot and sweaty front area tomorrow. It seems tempting to find a more comfortable spot further back, but at the same time I know it'll probably be even more tempting to go near the stage again once I get inside the venue.... Uncomfortable or not, that is where most of the fun is to be had.

That's about how I feel too. And it'll be even worse with the guys there to push harder and sweat more.

I'll wait and see how many of the guys decide to stand in the front.

Since I have a pretty good number for Sunday (thank you!), maybe I'll try standing further back tomorrow if it looks like it'll be too hot/painful, and then go to the front the last night instead.

Wow, a better look to his pants and boots XD
You are right, at lives most of fun is really near to the stage. When I go to metal lives, I must be very far from the stage to avoid some "flying people" on my head! It seems this is not a problem when you go to lives in Japan, I am very happy!

Well, I also got a closer look at the back of his teeth, as that was what I saw every time I looked up ^^; (He was really leaning over us, so his head was right above mine a lot of the time)

And you're right, unless Merry is one of the bands playing (-__-) We were in pain at the Versailles live last month, with a lot of Merry's fans crowdsurfing, jumping on to our heads during their set. Fortunately, they're the only band I've seen with crowdsurfing fans.

Even though it's not officially summer yet, it sure feels like it is. @_@

It's good to hear the amount of people who showed up at the international night was in the "goldilocks zone" - not too many, not too few. I wonder how many people Versailles anticipated would show up compared the amount that actually went.

And in addition to the unveiling of a new set of costumes (if that's what they're going to do) I'm hoping for another big or semi-big announcement. The last shock was their decision to go major in December, so we're already six months past that point. (Already!)

...New costumes for their new album! *wishful thinking*

Stay hydrated, and take care during the finale! @o@

The outside temperatures aren't too bad, but inside the Rock May tonight was amazingly bad @_@

It only seems natural that they will appear in a new set of costumes the final night, the way they've been chronologically changing outfits these last few days. But at the same time, then it wouldn't make sense that they used the other costumes for the new PV ø_ø We'll just have to wait and see. Maybe they could wear something completely different instead? Like they did at the x-mas event in 2007. That would be fun :D

It's really really hot here... *dies*

It would be nice to see them in a brand new set, but it'll be fun to see them wear something unexpected, too. I'm imagining swim trunks and floppy hats and sandals and such but that would go completely against their image. X)

I wouldn't say the school girl uniform Hizaki wore at that x-mas event was an exact match with their image either x)
I guess I just want Kamijo to appear in a Lareine costume again... It has happened once; it can happen again! :D

hot = perfect timing for Kamijo to wear once again one of his Lareine lightest costume which is ....the green skirt !!!!!
(and I would end up completly mad as I'm so in love with it and miss it so deeply T___T)

Hmm that said, some "men in black costumes" would look perfect but I guess it's a bit too plain for a "finale' so I'm quite curious too ! (same goes with the next CURE issue...which costume did they do the shooting with ? the supposed to be new or some real unknown ones ?)

How did they manage to pack so many people in such a tiny place ? I know that japanese girls are rather thin but it seems just crazy and even dangerous =__=;
let's hope Versailles won't lose fans (or members) in the last 2 concerts XD
be careful and enjoy ^___^

Will he look as good in a skirt now that he's gained 10kg though? ^^;

Maybe they should wear eachother's costumes. That would have been interesting.

They sold just as many tickets for the last couple of nights, where there will be both guys and girls @__@ Hopefully the guys will have enough common sense to understand that they shouldn't push the rest of us that much. We weren't in pain last night, so it's obviously possible even with so many people crammed into such a tiny place.

Oh my ...that's a good point you got here ^^;
Ok Kamijo... no skirt for you anymore lol
But the exchange of costume would be wonderful...Kamijo in Jasmine rococco dress surrounded by the dead animals would be priceless XD (same for Yuki in Hizaki'dress !)

I hope the guys emptied all their stock of testosteron during the boys only live and will behave nicely (and won't forget to put double dose of deodorant XD)
