Lolol.. Thanks. I saw that after I posted!
I heard this song so many times, I still get chills hearing it each and every time, even if the actual Keya members don't perform it. Pleasantly surprised to see Miichan in it! Nice to also see Mayuyu, Yukirin, Naachan, Sakuratan (and Sayanee?)!
Also beside Sakura is Kwon Eun Bi bearing an awkward "what the ... am I supposed to do here" smile... I LOLed so much thinking that Silent Majority must have been to her (accustomed with K-pop standards and IZONE) like a Mahler symphony compared to Johann Strauss's waltzes.
The way "center" lady walked during the chorus
Now I'm imagining what if Techi also walked that stylish
New AEON CM uses the same song as Lawson CM. Title is revealed to be "10月のプールに飛び込んだ (Jumping inside the pool in October)"
If mngmnt announces the single at Tokyo Dome (or even before that, it's not like we would riot if news come sooner) we may be jumping in that pool exactly in October, which would be damn time to have our 9th single
the next single really intrigue me, I wonder how will it end up since a lot of change in Keyaki this past months. but for sure it is something that we wont expect.
remember, we got a Christmas song in February LOL.
I think it will be a new center with this single. I'm not sure but, is the Kobayashi's voice the predominant voice?
I can hear Hirate's voice at the beginning but in low tones so it will be fantastic if she is included in the senbatsu with Kobayashi as center.
DefinitelIy this type of song suits Yui's voice. She is one of my favourite vocalists of Keyaki aside Hirate and Nijika.
So it seems Techi showed up at today's concert
She did, she performed just Hiraishin, and although I saw concerned tweets around, overall they were pretty positive about it, even though she is not fully healed.
Hopefully she'll get better little by little.
Personally I love that they chose Hiraishin because that song for me always carried a positive message of support and protecting. First it was Shida, now is Risa, but it's also Techi that, like Neru said, protect Keyaki, and since a while that message is conveyed by every single member... and, really, fans also, could easily be the "Hiraishin" at this point, so, they couldn't have chose a better song in my opinion.
One thing I can't see anywhere though is how the Arena Tour is going so far in matter of presences, money and all those things I couldn't care less about but which make a Tour successful or not... do anyone have some data?
From Sakamichi Daily News, it seems at each day of the tour someone leaves the stage, but I'm not sure when/where it happens. Does anyone have any more information about this?
A comment on that article has suggested it might mean the 9th single lineup. There are 5 dates left (3 in Fukuoka, then 2 at Tokyo Dome) for a total of 12 dates, so it's not like they'll be able to tease the entire lineup. What do you guys think?
I'm just hoping there'll be an announcement at Tokyo Dome about the next release
So... I am just gonna leave this here. Such a powerful pic of these two
@bandica I went only to the two days in the Osaka-jo Hall and I have for the last day in Fukuoka. In every tour date, a different member just left the stage (with the camera focused in that member), yesterday was Tamu-chan and the day before was Karin-chan.
According to friends and comments in my LINE, is a kind of hidden message that can be related to a near announcement or event (like Tokyo Dome or something different we will discover in Fukuoka last day). Until I know, the first tour dates were 1st generation members who left the stage, now is 2nd generation (Ten-chan was the first one) but I can't provide more information because all is a mistery. Everyone is confused.
@Xiphyas Thanks for the information! Does it happen like in the middle of a song/MC or at the very end or something? And if they leave before the end do they still come back for the rest of the performances? Sorry for all the questions, it's a bit difficult to imagine the staging for it
Keyaki sure loves their mysteries lol they always have me on the edge with these
@bandica It happens in different moments, a member (don't remember who) left during the MC.
@Xiphyas I see, thanks for clarifying!
Looks like W-Watanabe in 2nd gen version: The ponkotsu girl + the calm, serene beauty/model girl.
So far which member left the stage?
I won't even try to resolve the mystery because I'm always wrong lol but I read around of members who were "left behind", is it the same thing?
Also, announcing 9th single in Fukuoka and perform it on Tokyo Dome would be perfect
Edit: Sakamichi United released a statement against stalkers, who seems, at this point, be organized groups who follow the girls by car and "ambush" them in front of their working place. This is, once again, shameful for the whole fanbase. Hopefully mngmnt can take legal action against those people before something bad happens
@Dill This is the list of members who left the stage:
About stalkers. All this warnings is because they are taking actions and not keep silent. The problem is that is hard to prove the 'stalking'. When we talked with management, I suggest to use private security but management told us 'private security is used in outside filming, HS and live performance (actually there are security mixed with fans), we are considering to use personal security everyday also'.
In particular and what I know and see in Keyakizaka and Hinatazaka, many members go with someone from their family or a manager and this happens with underage members (from what I noticed), but we know the 'adult' members are who want more 'freedom' and prefer to go alone or with other members.
As I said, stalking is hard to prove and the law have nothing specific about that but the harassment is a crime and is used to report this cases. I think Seed & Flower are learning really fast and Sony is taking actions especially after the recent and sad episodes. And the future actions will be crucial for members and especially to the next generation girls.
I really don't have information about you write (car stalking) and in what group happened, but if this is true, that is a serious crime.
Thank you @Xiphyas for both info.
From the little I learn here and there, it seems to me Japan faces the same problems Italy has when it comes to legally go against stalking and/or worse behaviour. It's a long road still to walk. Hopefully this statement will be a first step and it will make those people back off and stop.
