"Scene" Concert Report for Saturday, September 4th  
"Scene" Concert Report for Saturday, September 4th

Well, tonight there weren't many cameras, so I think last night was the one that'll probably be on the DVD. Also, in the seating meant for special guests, there was somebody that had all the people in the crowd really excited. (I've heard since then that Touma, Ogura, and Shun were supposedly there!)

My section was extremely excited again! And there was plenty of reason for yelling during the concert.

Jun and Aiba had their moment in "Movin' On," when they sang "hitotsu ni nareru" close together again. In "Troublemaker", Sho called for everyone to do the dance moves with them. Then Sho and Ohno made their heart, bowed to each other, and Sho ran off to get to his spot. Aiba preformed a fun-looking spinning jump.

Overall, the whole atmosphere for the concert was just electrifying tonight. The time flew by so quickly...

"Attack it" had Sho putting his hand on his forehead like a gun and making a funny face with his tongue sticking out. XD Their greetings changed slightly. Jun's was "Kokuritsu! x3 This is the last day! x2 Are you ready?! Ready to have some fun?!", Nino's "Can you really have fun with this kind of tension?!", Aiba's (his voice was fine tonight!) "Are you excited?! More! x4 This is great!", Ohno's "Hi!" (Us = "Hi!") "Hi!" (Us= "Hi!") "Hi, hi, hi!" (Us= "Hi, hi, hi!"), and after Ohno finished his part, Aiba came over and gave him a hug. Sho shouted it wasn't enough yet and got us yelling even more.

Ohno did the "uh, uh"s in "Kitto Daijoubu" again, and Nino and Jun were RIGHT beside him, grinning at him tonight too. "A day in our life" was adorable. Jun was petting Ohno's face again and Ohno moved to kiss him, but the cameras changed to a different image before we could see if it was on the cheek or not. DX

"Summer Splash" was cute too. At the beginning, Arashi was in a group huddle/hug while they sang the first few lines. For Ohno's solo part, they gathered around close to him for that too. The water geysers shot out like normal, but no one got particularly wet tonight.

"Shizuka na yoru ni" was, in a word, perfect.

After the guys got onto the carts to move back to center stage in "Lucky Man", Nino and Jun shared a cart and Nino put his arms out at his sides, then Jun put his hands on Nino's shoulders. They looked like they were having fun. ^_^

Then suddenly, it was time for the MC again.

Sho started off with greetings. "Good evening everyone. Once again, we are Arashi. So, this is our last day at Kokuritsu. It was the first time we'd been able to do it for 4 days. It went by so fast! Are you all having fun?" Nino answered for us, "Of course they are." Jun commented that it was hot and Aiba agreed, "You can see my nipples already." Sho came up to him to touch his shirt and exclaimed, "You're really wet!" Nino told him he should go change into a different shirt and Aiba chased Nino around the stage before going to do just that. Only, they called him back over before he was really done, so all he had time to do was take off the wet shirt and put back on his jacket. It looked a little silly so Nino took one of those blue towels and stuck it on Aiba, tucking it into the jacket to make it look "better". Sho yelled at the pair, "Nothing has been resolved by doing that!"

In a moment of silence, a guy's voice shouted out from the crowd and Sho said, "What?", then "I know what we should do. We've done it in the domes before, but never in a place like this.  Let's try asking the guys to shout out something." Ohno asked, "What should they say?" Jun suggested "Arashi" and when they did it, it sounded loud enough that I think a few girls might have joined in with lower voices? Arashi wanted to hear a kids version next, but with "Arachi" instead. This one was quieter and more high pitched. The guys said it sounded cute. Sho told us, "All right girls. Sorry for making you wait." But the idea that Nino came up with for the shout was "onigiri" (*rice ball). Jun wanted us to make the intonation rise at the end, so we gave it a try. They were laughing afterwards. "It went so high!"

Sho changed the topic as they started back for the main stage. "Jun, you're doing a drama now?" Matsujun answered with an "Ei". Sho tried again, "It's Natsu Niji, right?" Another "Ei". "And it's ending soon?" Jun replied, "Yeah, there're about 3 more episodes?" Sho paused. "Sorry, just then, I just got my mic confused with my water bottle." He'd been about to talk into his water instead of the microphone. XD Jun told everyone that "Natsu Niji" would be more of a love story next week. Aiba thought there might be a kiss again, but the word he used was "kuchidzuke" so Nino called him an idiot. Aiba advanced on Nino threateningly. Nino bent backwards a bit but Aiba leaned forward and kissed him. From what I could tell, I could have sworn it was a kiss on Nino's nose, but other people were saying it was on the lips? Sho laughed. "What are you guys, Dancho Club?" (*Comedian trio)

They talked a little about Nino's new drama. He said, "It's already 2 years since "Ryuusei no Kizuna..." and Jun called out "You can do it" (*Ganbatte) in a really low voice. Sho briefly mentioned his new movie. Then Nino turned to Ohno. "And you're just going fishing, right? You're getting darker." To keep with the theme, Sho told Leader to "do his best" cutely (*Ganba).

The guys had a bit of news for us. They asked if we'd seen their JAL commercial and announced they had a "new" commercial for us. We were all shocked to see images of a plane that was in the process of having Arashi's image plastered on the side. There's an Arashi plane now! Nino thought it was great. "Arashi's amazing." Sho said, "Although it only showed them peeling off the coating for the artwork, there should also be our faces somewhere on the inside too." Aiba encouraged everyone to try flying onboard. Nino commented, "I want to take a picture with that (plane)." Jun asked, "What? Like double of the same face?" Nino nodded and told us, "You know, it's thanks to all of you that we could do this, " and "'Movin' On' is only one of the new songs from our album. There are others we'd like you to listen to. Let's go on to the second half." Aiba barely started to do his usual shout when he stopped. "Wait! I can't do the "yeah"s yet. Sho. I saw you with your stethoscope the other day. And with the way you were practicing... you always put it on the nipples." Sho shrugged. "You've got to check for their health too, for whatever they might say." Nino asked, "So what would Aiba's (nipples) say?" Sho replied, "Probably, "MAX".

Kaibutsu-kun came out!! At the end of his dance, he has a pose with one arm pointing up and the other on his hip, but for some reason, he stayed frozen in that position longer tonight. He'd barely got out, "Yo. I came to the human world-" and Aiba popped out, like he was going to get everyone yelling again. He stopped with an "Eh?" Jun popped out next, saying, "Let's get going into the second h- Eh?" Jun and Aiba stared at him, so Ohno introduced himself as Kaibutsu-kun. They asked him "Why are you at our concert?" Aiba couldn't help adding, "Daibutsu-kun?" Ohno said in an irritated voice, "It's Kaibutsu-kun!" Aiba tried again with, "Butsubutsu-kun?" (*grumbling) Jun looked at Leader with a surprised expression. "Kaibutsu-kun... you came all 4 nights?" Ohno muttered, "It was interesting. I was watching it too." Jun laughed that he'd been sticking close to Arashi.

Then! Nino and Sho made their appearance! In those ridiculous red and blue outfits of Ohmiya SK with the headbands and feathers. Nino was in blue with his "K" and Sho in red with an "S". Sho had an expression on his face that he would rather be ANYWHERE but there wearing that costume. Nino said in his goofy voice, "Wow! It's been about 5 years... I'm Yuuji." Sho gave a little bow and said formally, "I'm Taka." We were all cracking up at how stiff Sho was acting. Jun commented that it had definitely been awhile and Aiba that it was their first time at Kokuritsu. They asked, "Did Taka change?" and the only reply they got was that "The "S" isn't wrong!" Jun had his brows furrowed. "Was Taka always like this?"

In the background, Ohno was dying from trying to keep his laughter in, but when Nino noticed, Leader crossed his arms and put a scowl on his face. Nino shoved Sho towards Kaibutsu-kun and told Taka to go greet him.  Sho marched up to Leader and said, "I didn't really want to do this!" After a lot of laughing, Kaibutsu-kun managed to dash backstage, but so did Nino. Sho glanced around, looking lost. Jun asked him what was wrong and that's when Sho realized he'd been left on the stage by himself wearing that silly red outfit. "This sucks." Jun and Aiba asked him, "Why are you here?" Sho frowned and complained, "That's what I want to know." Aiba was curious what kind of special abilities he could do, but Nino came back out, followed shortly by Ohno. They'd changed clothes really quickly into their nice white costumes. After giving the excuse that he'd gotten lost backstage, Nino mentioned that he'd heard Taka could do 3 backflips. Sho fell to his knees, hanging his head. "With everyone's power, he should be able to do it." Aiba went over to the stairs on the stage, suggesting Sho try it from there. Sho looked at all of them like they were crazy. "For real, I'm sorry, but no. Can I go back now?" He said he'd learned two things tonight. One, that Kokuritsu is difficult. And the second one, I couldn't catch. Sho left the stage after he said in a funny voice resembling something Taka would use, "Everyone in Kokuritsu, thank you!"

And then we all noticed Jun was sitting there on the steps eating a banana. Nino was confused and Aiba commented that that was definitely a first for Kokuritsu. The reason why Jun was having a snack became clear after Nino turned to Aiba. "Are we going to do it?" Aiba excitedly went to help the staff set up the Johnnys Intro Clip Game, which he changed the name for again. Before they started, Sho returned in the same white clothes as the other members. Nino was like, "Sho! Did you see? Miya SK came!" Sho played it cool. "Oh really?" Nino asked if he'd seen them backstage. Sho replied that he hadn't, but that he'd run into Kaibutsu-kun instead.

Aiba set the start line pretty far back. Jun was giving the other a handicap by finishing his banana. The first song, Nino answered Tokio's "Hana uta". Then abruptly, Aiba said, "This is the last one." We all "Eh~?"ed. The clip they played was so short it was only a breathing sound. Arashi was like, "Huh?" Jun decided to participate and gave it a shot with Kinki Kids' "Natural Thing". It was right. Ohno had no idea what it was, so he bowed and apologized. Since they were getting more energetic, Aiba yelled, "One more!"  Aiba and Sho ran for it, but in the confusion of which one of them had hit the button first, Aiba admitted, "I forgot while I was running..." Sho was still waiting to see if Aiba had a guess. "Can I say it? It's probably wrong anyway. 'Aishiteru to ienai". Sho was incorrect, so Aiba asked if he could hear it again, but they told him he had to come back to the start line with the rest of them. Ohno could tell that it was at least an Arashi song. Jun guessed, "Arashi's 'Here we go'." He was correct. Nino announced Jun the winner for all of the days of Kokuritsu.

Still annoyed at having been made to come out as Taka, Sho asked, "Sooner or later, can we do this thing properly?" and Nino just burst out laughing. Pretty much everything Arashi does is rather chaotic...

Jun had his hat and sunglasses on once again for his solo. Aiba got lots of screams for "Magical Song", especially whenever he did his "Yeah"s and pulled a sideways peace sign across his eyes.

"Kotoba Yori" was memorable. Aiba was extremely hyper and even Ohno was jumping around with this cute frantic wave to the crowd. Later, Aiba swung his scarf around again in "Believe".

I'm rather happy that Sho's English introduction sounded really clear to me. I think I finally have the full thing now. "Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls. Thank you again for joining us this evening. And next, we have an amazing performance coming up. Now, I'll guide you to a world of wonder. Are you ready?"

Just like last night, Aiba and Jun pulled off their acrobat stunts without a hitch. I wonder how much time it took to practice for that.

There was scattered laughter among the audience when they saw those sparkly silver cloaks with the blue and pink fabric sticking up from the shoulders. I thought the most impressive thing was how quickly the juniors helped Arashi get them off right before the remix. The dancing was still seriously cool!

And the speeches:

Sho- "We sang a lot, didn't we? For as great as Kokuritsu is, we weren't sure we'd really be able to pull this off. In our new album, there are a lot of messages. "You and me" (*In English) and "This is us" (*Also in English). If you listen to the songs, I hope they'll be able to help you."

Ohno- "It went by so fast. I really, really saw a lot of faces. I was thinking "This is Arashi." Everyone here is Arashi. It's one huge family, isn't it? With everyone smiling like this, I want to keep doing these kinds of concerts."

Aiba- "Right from the start, every moment was really fun. I want to remember it all. Last year- no, wait- yesterday. I'll try to remember everything from yesterday too. This might be the "MAX" now. In our 11th year, I'm finding that I love Arashi even more than before. And since everyone's Arashi, I like all of you too. On our never-ending journey, please support us."

Nino- "Well, since everyone's in Arashi... Can I ask you to remember the dance moves for at least one song by tomorrow? Then you might be able to take over Aiba's position. (Aiba- "Hey! Arashi is the five of us! I'm warning you, Nino!") (Sho grabbed Aiba and pulled him back to where he was standing before. With a grin, he said, "Sorry about that." Aiba was chuckling too.) He's probably satisfied now. Anyway, I'd like to see as many people from as many different places as possible. You know, you can't see Arashi like you can here. 'He's so cool' is what you'll think. Or 'Sho becoming Taka was really interesting!' Of course, that's just my opinion. Everyone can see what we have made here. Please continue having fun with us, sweating with us, and forgetting bad memories. Because these really fun times that we've had, if you don't forget them when you go home, they'll help you through the bad times.  That's what I think our role is meant to do."

Jun and Nino bowed to each other and shook hands before Jun started- "Thank you for coming to Arashi's concert "Scene", the landscape we are seeing. How was it? To me, my scenery changes everyday. Meeting new people, doing different things, I keep thinking 'Today I want to do better.' How each person feels is a little different, but I hope we could help you to think 'Tomorrow, I want to try harder' too. With the same 5 members as always, we hope to continue receiving energy from you."

During "To Be Free", each of the guys goes to the individual stands that raise them up, but Aiba was having such a good time waving that he realized he was late for the timing and ran for his spot. "Sora Takaku"'s balloons looked wonderful tonight too! Nino got 2 of the yellow ones once again, which he had to hand off to the staff. I'm so curious what he's doing with them!

The first encore began with Aiba, Sho, and Nino walking in a train toward their moving platform, while Jun and Ohno had their arms over each other's shoulders. But the best part was when Jun decided to grab Ohno by the hand and lead him over to their spot. XD So adorable! Then there was a hilarious moment when Aiba used his towel to reach over and smack Nino on the butt.

"Fight Song" started as Sho and Nino were chanting "Sore, sore, sore, sore." Jun and Ohno did their cute nods again! At the end, Jun said, "Aiba, how was it?" He answered, "Everyone was awesome!"

Since there weren't fireworks last night, I wasn't really expecting them tonight, but during "Beautiful Days", Jun said he had something for us right before they started, like he already knew. They were really gorgeous, so Nino just HAD to change his solo part to "Hanabi ga kirei da ne" again. ^_^

"Sakura Sake" finished with Nino, Sho, and Aiba doing these silly "artistic" poses. Those three sure have a lot of fun together!

After Jun asks us what their name is, all of the water geysers shoot off simultaneously, like normal. But tonight they were waving the mist closer and Sho was patting his face, as if it was getting wet. He was also the last one to go backstage, so he stuck his face between the curtains and laughingly said, "Thank you."

For the second encore, they came out and Jun reiterated that it was the first time they'd done 4 days at Kokuritsu. Sho said, "Yeah, it makes us happy... Was it fun, Satoshi?" Ohno looked at him in surprise, since he'd just used his first name without any -san or -kun, but replied, "Sho... Yeah, it was fun." Sakurai turned to Nino. "Kazunari?" Another affirmative. "Masaki?" Aiba answered, "Definitely, it was fun, Sho." Sakurai looked over at the youngest member. "Jun, you can take it over now." Laughing, Jun told everyone he was looking forward to meeting us again sometime. And to introduce the song, Jun stuck his hand down Ohno's shirt to show the little rainbow printed there more clearly. Ohno just looked down at the hand and blinked. "Love Rainbow" was great. Jun and Ohno pointed at the camera together for "Subete kimi ni suru," then Nino, Aiba, and Sho did some other goofy poses after their part.

The concert ended right on time. We were a little disappointed we couldn't get them to come out one more time, but it was a great evening anyway!

And I saw "Over" is out now, so I'll work on those lyrics tomorrow.... when I'm more awake.


  <-- That's as good as I could get it while continuing to walk...

Hi I have a question, how did you come by all these tix? I'm super envious but I hope to go myself some day so I'm asking! Thank you <3
Catyarukizero on September 5th, 2010 06:43 am (UTC)
I live in Tokyo, so even if I can't find the tickets online, I can go to Harajuku or Shibuya to check the ticket shops. It's expensive, but sometimes you get lucky.

Good luck on going to a concert! I wouldn't recommend going to a Tokyo one, just because they are more expensive than other places in Japan.
