I won't review ALL the concert, just my favorite parts, because I don't see the end of this post (and you neither m(_ _)m (I must applaude you for reading this far XDDDDD))
COOL & SOUL
Now I understand why everybody wanted to see that performance! The song is already just awesome itself, but THIS PERFORMANCE!!! *nosebleed* And the stage being as the ARASHIC cover? Genius!
They're. Just. Too. Hot.
Favorite part being at the end when Sho-baby gets all excited and jump on the table at the
"GULP GULP GULP what you ladies need
Is something to quench your thirst, at any rate
Get your sleeping self out of bed, soon you will want us
Plundering the title of 'idol'
Plundering at high speeds the "Great nation of idols with mics"
Hip Hop da hi bi da hi bi to da Hip Pop star"
I want somebody
Just because this moment was awwwwwwwwesome!
FINALLY!!! FINAAAAAAALLY we can see it fully (without being a fancam) THANK YOUUUUUUU!!!! Nino you're too much the cuteness with this song!!! <3
And am I the ONLY ONE who had thought ALL ALONG, since "Iza Now" that Ohno was just rotating his hips??? I just noticed it on the Taipei perf that it's not the truth, his hips are just going to the back, from right to left and left to right
It just hit me when I watched it, I rewatched the "Iza Now" perf after that and now I can see it too *feels really dumb*
La Tormenta 2004
YEAAAAAAAAH!!!! It's my favorite Tormenta Performance!!! Even if they didn't change the lyrics, and it's in the same order as in the "ONE" tour.
I was soooo happy because ShoxJun is a rare pairing and they were great
Favorite part BY FAR: OHNO (what the hell did he say??? "Domautsu"??? Or something like that???) He made me snort so loud, OMG!!! I watched it too many times and I'm laughing my ass off everytime XDDDDD
edit: Thanks to trickylady "Ohno had said 'ro-man-su' xD~ like the otaku dancers in that one G no Arashi episode"
SHO-BABYYYYYY!!!! (ROOOOFL!! The way he looks at Ohno and him restraining from laughing XD)
Baby, I know you're supposed to be showing us your pierce
Carnival Night part2
I just love this song so much!!! I was saw happy when I saw they sung it at the concert!!!! I SIMPLY ADORE THE CHOREGRAPHY TOO!!!
*has already started learning it*
edit: Thanks to happiegurlie "Carnival Night Part 2!!! Yes, choreography is awesome, mainly because Captain came up with it. In a train, no less. Haha, I remember they were talking about it during the MCs at the Arashic summer concerts last year. (4 members: "Leader, it's so hard!")"
How useful! Your pink suits can shine in the dark!!!! XDDD
Maybe I'm not so biased about "Iza Now" concert, because, as much as I ador ethis song and this performance, I prefer the Taipei one!!
Because..... ZOMFG SHO-KUN IS REALLY SINGING THE BRIDGE AFTER THE BEATBOX!!!!! That really..... REALLy... DROVE ME CRAZY XDDDD I fell on the floor, because I've never, ever, heard him rap like that (it was more like a hard-rock kind of rap) and grabed my TV XDDDDD It will always amaze me how many different kinds of rap he can do! And his tension was totally at 1000% and more! He's so into it that when he starts singinbg again "I'll go you just wait", he still have his rockish voice XDDD <3<3<3<3<3<3
I. Just. Loved. It.
Tell me what you wanna be?
Ok guitarist, you're good looking and kakkoi playing the guitar but.... I WANT NINO!!!! NINOxJUN SMUT ONEGAISHIMAAAAAAASU!!!!!
That must be my favorite Jun solo!!! Rock suits him very well, and I prefer it to W/ME
KAKKOIIIIIII KAKKOIIIIIIIIIIII!!! I feel like my fantasm has become a reality XDDDDD Arashi in Kimono, with Lightsabers XDDDD
The music was also really goood, it introduced "RIGHT BACK TO YOU" really well!
Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi
This remix is sooo so good! Was it this one they sung at the Dome Concerts? Sakuraiba was lovely! (about the talk, more "Thank you so much" and "you give us power" and "Because you're here we can keep going on, you're our strengh" etc etc...)
I was jumping around and around in the living room!!! And Nino, you're still such a dork XDDDDD (NinoxSho <3) AND OHNO AT THE BEGINNING!!! ZOMG I LOVE YOU RIIDA!!!! *This is seriously the part I've watched the most in the concert XD*
The end of the concert was so sad (even if it had a happy feeling because of "Gori Muchuu", it's my super genki song before going to work (when I want to kill on eor two people << )), for the triple encore, how Jun said "Mata ne"... of course they have to leave, but the fans wants you more, and they know, they have waited 7 years, so it's more special, you don't want to leave, but you have to...
This concert doesn't top "Iza Now", but it's my second favorite, "How's it Going" being just behind. I haven't said it also, but this is the first time I really noticed M.A.D., the Juniors, and they were reaaaally good (well... except the "TOP SECRET" major failure (as in "Iza Now" XDDDD)... well, I'll forgive you, it's really hard to be at Ohno's level <3) OMG!!! And I forgot to mention it, but the beginning of "Lucky Man", where Sho and Jun go "Huh! Huh!" over and over again really made my ovaries exploded XDDDDD
Final word over this DVD: it's our gift from Arashi. I really take it like this, it was really focused on
I even appreciate the cover more now, it's not some fancy picture of the group, it's Aiba-chan from the back, arms wide open, running to the fans and giving his love and energy. That means a lot to me too (well if you want... Shoronpo means a lot to them so that's why it's part of the cover too XDDDD)
Now I shall go to bed, it took me 3 days to watch the DVDs, and 5 days to write this review, encoding and uploading everything @_x I basically spend my whole week over AAA DVD m(_ _)m (and wanting to kill some people at work, luckily, I have Arashi to rise my spirit up! \ooooooo/ )
If you have any use fo all those screencaps, douzo yoroshiku ne! Help yourself XDD
Credit for the original video rips: Ammi's CB (which were really weirdly encoded, so when I cut them it was even more weird, that's why some videos are a little... weird) and WindJP. Screencaps by me from my DVDs.
I still wonder if someone read this 'til the end XDDDDDDD Oyasumi nasai! (AND LJ IS AN ASS FOR NOT LETTING ME POST THAT AS A WHOLE SINGLE POST >< )
