Alice Nine Live at Singapore 28.6 Supernova Symphonia

I was so excited for this live! It's been too long since I have been at a jrock live and I was really looking forward to this one :3 I love the spontaneity and the enthusiasm and the feel of jrock lives aaah and all the fangirls and merch and ;~;;; man, I just love the air and atmosphere of it.

I wasn't sure how to feel about a jrock live in Singapore (and there are definitely differences) but it was just nice to bask in it again for awhile ^^

Alice Nine has been to Singapore to perform for 3 times now (if I'm not wrong?) but I missed the previous two times because of busyness and schedules always clashing >< Niko went to see them the first time without me (though I was planning to go with her) in 2010 at Sundown Fest I think? ;~; Anyway, now we finally got the opportunity to watch them together. When I first saw they were holding an Asia tour and one of their stops were going to be here, I asked Niko if she wanted to go again (I'm not that big of an A9 fan, but I did listen to them in the past <3) and she was like "YESSSS IT'S A MUST!" So we bought tickets, heh~ We got the Standard ones though, not the VIP. For many reasons. XDD;;

Anyway, I got my hair dyed a week ago for the live! For some reason I'm super dedicated to looking nice at lives -__-
I got my hair done at Jason&Sally's in Singapore. No bleaching!
Back to my infamous red hair that I had when I first saw Gaze live, eheheh <3

Me and Niko waited for awhile under the hot melting sun to enter the livehall ><

But here's a selfie to make up for it all <3

Me and Niko in the queue
Me and Chris (voxteiru)!
I also saw Kimberly, asked me to pass these 2 tickets to her friends~ They got hard copy tickets 'cause they won them in a contest! :// Meanwhile us normal ticket holders had no solid copy and had measly QR codes instead. Bummer.

Alice Nine tickets. My legs photobombing them lol
Apparently a ton of other people that I know online also saw me at the live but said they were too shy to say hello :( Don't be scared of me please I'm the one that's supposed to be scared ahahaha

Because standard ticket holders enter the livehouse later than the VIP holders (due to photoshoot session and all, too) the merchandise was almost all gone by the time me and Niko entered. Ah, well~ We get to save up money then, ahahaha.

This was the stage for A9:

Not much of a live report person but. The live was great! And I'm really not just saying this just because. It was really, really great. Alice Nine commanded such presence on stage and oh god, the men were so beautiful/charming/handsome/adorable in person. I don't even know who is my favourite! Each time I think I prefer this member more, another member's antics convince me otherwise ;~;;; 

There were alot of fanservice too, which surprised me! Chris (voxteiru) told me before the live that A9 has lessened their fanservice greatly in recent years, so I wasn't expecting much, really, but then!!!!!! The whole live to me was like, 90% fanservice lmao lmao. There was so much kissing going on; Hiroto kissed Shou on the cheek. Tora basically licked Hiroto's face. And there was a ToraSaga kiss too, so. <3

Shou is really, really such a great singer. His voice sounded incredible live! Hearing them live also made me feel alot of things ;~; It's always so incredible to see these jrock bands in person because when you listen to their music, they always feel so far away and dreamy and not real! But here they were, performing in front of me, and I tried to sing to as much songs of theirs as I could <3~ Shou really tried to engage the audience alot and it was so fun singing with him.

We were also soooo surprised when BLUE PLANET started playing! It was one of the first few songs I heard from them, back in 2009, and it was one of the many things Niko and I bonded over ahaha. It was so nostalgic and like a blast to the past. It was so bittersweet.

Also, I basically fell in love with Nao (he's the cutest, I swear omfg) when he grabbed the microphone, swung it sideways rock star mode, and said "U GUYS... MY HEART CANNOT TAKE IT ANYMORE. MY HEART CANNOT CANNOT TAKE IT ANYMOOORE!!!!!" ;~;;;; NAAAAOOOO!!!!

I screamed my heart out I lost my voice basically halfway through the live. I amazed myself, considering I didn't think I was very into A9 before XDD;; but I guess you lose yourself in the moment of the live when the music is so great and the members are so fantastic ;~;;; I love the feel. Missed this feeling of concert lives + furi + AN-KO-RE so much.

Also, lololol side note but Saga reminded me of Uru with him wearing a white blouse and having it unbuttoned and the way he played his guitar hnnngh Really got the Uru feel!!!! Tora on the other hand reminded me of Aoi -___- I don't know why. Dressing and his funny antics maybe? Plus he was kissing so many people lol <3 And drinking alot and spitting out water ahahaha~

I died when Shou said "WE ARE COME BACK!!!" lmao lmao I love their engrish so much! So endearing. <3333 

A9 also showcased the banner that the Singapore A9 fanclub (which Chris also participated in, so I was very happy for her) on stage and made many happy comments about it! It was great <3 

Aaaah, my comments are endless. The songs were played wonderfully and they had such show presence.

They had cameras there filming us fans too, so I expect they'll release a DVD of some sort.

It's late, I'm going to sleep <3~

Holidays

Over the holidays I've been meeting up with people I love again! <3

I met up with TCF, which is my primary school friends clique, and though only maybe half showed up for breakfast, it was still so fun meeting up with them ;~;;;

We can breakfast at The Plain Cafe! It was my second time going there. Cafes are not too my fancy but meh <3 Friends bonding time~

I had normal toasts and orange juice. :3

A group photo before I miss all of them again T___T

It's been hard keeping contact when all of us are in different schools and on different academic paths now, but it's always so nice to hang out every once in awhile knowing the bond has never changed. We're always still so kind, attentive, loving and caring to one another :-)

I also finally met up with Chris (voxteiru), a friend I made recently on Twitter! She's a Singaporean fellow jrock fan too! Except her bias is Alice Nine, and mine is the GazettE xDD;; But we still had sooo much to talk about. It was an enjoyable day with her! *A* We went to The Plain Cafe too (coincidentally) at a different outlet tho, and then she had cake afterwards, and then we had dinner at Plaza Sing afterwards~ She's so kind! We share alot of same sentiments and we talked about the fandoms we were in and the jrock fandom as a whole the whole day lololol <3

Me and Chris! <3
Went out with RPG group for a movie too (The Fault in Our Stars, it made me realise alot of things ><) and here was my ootd for that day:

Black Moral shoulder bag ehehehe + matching BM gold bear keychain!
#ootd for the day~ I love this pair of black striped stockings <3

As you already know (you should know, if you're reading this blog) I am a biiiiig fan of Aoiha, been shipping them for 5 years+++ going on to 6th now, and one manga that really resembles them alot is Mede Shireru Yoru No Junjou (I've recco them as a MUST-READ for all Aoiha fans out there!) It's not that the manga is Aoiha of course, but the characters are drawn and act way too similar to Aoiha - too good to be true! ;A;;;

I ransacked the whole internet and finally found a copy of the whole series on Taobao! So happy to finally be able to buy them! I bought them in the Chinese translated version so at least I can read them. I don't know if there is an official English translated one (though of course there are English translations online)

I just love the art so much! So happy to be able to finally get them! <3
