ysabelandrei: (Takeru 25 past 10!)
During the first day of Best of Anime, I already saw Koki and INKT! They were eating as I was on my way to the restroom. Koki was laughing the time I saw him. His laugh and smile were so precious. It seemed like he was being bullied by his co-members. According to friends who already met INKT before Best of Anime, Koki is a bullied person in the group. (LOL) My friends were just beside them so they invited me to eat with them. I can't stay for so long in the area since I had to man the booth of Amuse PH. But, that encounter was so precious! I was about to say hi and shake their hands but I saw that they were being guarded by huge bouncers. I freaked out! haha! I saw them again when Uchuusentai Noiz was already performing. I had a glimpse of Kei's magnificent face! He was such an ikemen! <3

FLOW live in Manila

BEFORE THE CONCERT

Just last April 16, one of the popular Amuse Incorporated’s artists, FLOW, finally landed in Manila, Philippines through Ozine Fest! This was their first time in Manila and also my first time in seeing them live. However, before finally having their concert, there were some technical difficulties. The fans were withheld for a couple of hours before the show. We were supposed to be lined up according to our pass but it wasn’t followed since Amuse Inc. revised the seating arrangement. Up to the last minute, we were forced into a hall without any airconditioner and they decided to fix the line there. The fans were already confused as to what was happening, then the organizers announced that there was some mishap with their supplier. In the end, the issue was solved and the concert went on!

Also before the concert, FLOW PHILIPPINES (https://www.facebook.com/groups/fightingdreamersPH/), the local street team for FLOW, prepared a banner for fans to sign messages for the band. The street team successfully collected messages from fans in the convention.

DURING THE CONCERT

To be honest, I’m only familiar with a no. of FLOW songs but I greatly enjoyed their full live concert! Since it wasn’t allowed to be jumping inside the hall, the fans were only swaying their hands, singing with FLOW and screaming. There were times the hall was shaking so some fans got afraid and chose to remain seated. But, the concert turned out to be so well and enjoyable! FLOW members apologized that the concert was a little delayed. We were still so happy even so. My most favorite part was when Take, their lead guitarist, went out with led lights on his clothing and sang Voltes V’s theme! That was so fun! With the difficulties before the concert, I think the concert still turned out to be good because of FLOW’s liveliness during the concert! Keigo is also such an eyecandy! <3 I wish to get to know more about them and see them again once they land here in the Philippines again. Just right after the final song, we were able to hand them the banner.

At the meet and greet! <3

Hello, dear blog readers! As you may know, one of my favorite J-Rock bands already landed in Philippine shores! This is the first time a mainstream J-Rock band has landed here in Manila. Their first ever concert here in the Philippines was held last January 19, 2016. Together with my co-admins in Amuse Team Philippines and Philippines’ ONE OK ROCKers, we all attended the said concert.

BEFORE THE CONCERT

I arrived at the venue, in SM Mall of Asia Arena, at around 12nn. Philippines’ ONE OK ROCKers prepared a banner to be signed by all the fans. The banner was already filled up with lots of messages when I already arrived. This was also the time I saw my friends from the Johnny’s fandom. I met new people too! Shout out to the beautiful lady I met from Davao! She’s too pretty! <3 And, to Zeniga who came from Thailand just to catch ONE OK ROCK live in Manila!

Almost a week has passed and I'm still not yet over ONE OK ROCK's concert in Bangkok. Thinking about it still gives me shivers. We were a group of five Filipino ONE OK ROCK fans who flew from Manila to Bangkok, Thailand just to see ONE OK ROCK's live! We brought two tarpaulins but unfortunately, they were held up when we were already in the venue.

My friends and I arrived at Central World at around 12nn. The group of fans who came before us were listing unofficial queue nos. to get us properly upstairs. We were at the 7th floor and the escalator towards the 8th floor was still closed that time. Thank you to the fans who organized the queue since it turned out fine. We divided the tasks before the concert so we could get a good spot at the live itself. I was tasked to get our concert tickets while two of my friends bought concert goods while the remaining two lined up in front of the venue. Everything went fast since everyone was very excited! Fortunately, we were very near the right entrance so we got to be approximately four or five rows from the front! Such a very perfect place to stare at everyone's faces especially Taka and Toru's faces! We waited for two hours more inside the venue before the start. Few more minutes before the start, a group of men started to sound check the instruments and mic. And voila! Lights start to go on and off, it was already the start!

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's concert in Singapore last May 10 was a mixture of surreal, exciting and gleeful feelings. Although this was already my second time of witnessing a J-Pop concert, it was still very thrilling for me!

I arrived at the venue, SCAPE mall (located at Orchard Rd) at around 11:30am. There was already a queue of fans waiting for the selling of KPP's concert goods. The line was surprisingly short when I got there so I got the goods fast. We were asked to come to the goods section in groups of five. I bought almost all her concert goods except the elephant pouch, stickers and her Invader Invader shirt. I want to buy all the goods but since I'm in short of cash, I cannot.

2012-11-23 20.18.03 (1).jpg

I came to Scape Mall at around 12nn. Japanese fans were already present at that time but I was too shy to approach them. Since it was lunch time, I looked around for possible shops to eat at. I dropped by the AKB48 cafe but unfortunately, they don't serve meals anymore so I looked for another restaurant.



Sadly, I ended up eating junkfood.

Then after eating, I went back to AFA shop. At that time, I heard some fans saying 「パーフュムだよ〜!」(It's Perfume!)

So, I went outside to check. Some fans were waiting outside for Perfume to come.

AND YES OMG I DID SEE THEM UP CLOSE. BUT I ONLY SAW THEIR BACKS. I SAW A-CHAN'S FACE FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS. SHE WAS SO PRETTY SMILING AT FANS. BUT YUKA-CHAN, I ONLY SAW HER BACK WITH HER HAIR TIED IN A BUN. AND NOCCHI, OMG. SHE WAS THE ONE WHO FIRST STEPPED DOWN FROM THE BUS. I WASN'T ABLE TO SHOUT ANYTHING SINCE I WAS STARSTRUCK. LOL
