Of Animelo Summer Live 2008 -Challenge-April 28, 2008
Thank you god for fulfilling my dream. This year’s Animelo Summer Concert’s artist line up is simply awesome and a dream come true for me. The concert will be divided into two days (which I personally don’t know whether or not this is a good idea or not). And these are the artists set to perform on the 30th August 2008 (1st day) (Names in bold are my favorites):
1) ALI PROJECT
3) Kuribayashi Minami
4) savage genius
5) Tamura Yukari
6) Chihara Minori
7) Mizuki Nana
As for the 31st August 2008 (second day), these are the list of artist that will be performing (Names in bold are my favorites):
1) Chiaki Ishikawa
2) Kurobara Honzonkai
3) Physic Lover
4) JAM Project
6) Hirano Aya
7) Momoi Haruko
Personally I enjoy watching ALI PROJECT. Lol, some people might find it weird but I feel that’s the attraction ALI PROJECT brings, so I am definitely looking forward to the ALI PROJECT performance. I just hope they didn’t bring out the team of drag dancers as they did last year again. >.<
Then there’s Chihara Minori and Mizuki Nana. Hmm, what can I say, they are always my favorites. I think I blabbered enough in this blog about my obsession towards them and how I ordered their DVDs despite being poor. So if I say I am not looking forward to watching their performances, that will be the worst and pathetic lie I ever tell in my whole life. I hope Minorin performs the two songs in her singles of Melty Tale Storage. I love the songs. As for Nana-chan, AT LEAST Astrogation and Dancing in the Velvet Moon please.
I am also looking forward to Kuribayashi Minami’s performance. I would say the first day’s artist list looks very promising and they certainly can live up to the hype even without JAM Project performing at the same day.
As for the second day, Kurobara Honzokai is DEFINITELY THE MAIN THING I am looking forward to watch. Horie Yui in a rock band…performing in Animelo. Yes please, I will have one order of that. 😄
Though I really wonder what song they will perform. Though I wish for songs like Blue Heaven and Tobenai Tenshi, chances are they will perform Red Signal and Happy Happy Rice Shower ~Black Version~. Ahh whatever, it’s Hoc-chan in Animelo. I am happy enough. Though it makes me wonder what one of the band member will do for his purpose in the band is to just…dance. Yes, dance. Please don’t screw up Hoc-chan’s first appearance in Animelo. Please no. Please.
And then there’s always JAM Project. They are veteran singers. Enough said. Their harmonizing skills are superb. I wonder will they perform Motteke Sailor Fuku…Hmm…that will be…really LOL.
I am also looking forward to Momoi Haruko and her skills on the err..Melodica like..keyboard thing. Yes, I fail as a music student. I don’t know what that thing calls. Anyway, I am just looking forward to watch her do her solo again on that keyboard. Man, she can really perform. Her 2007 Animelo keyboard solo made me go..WOW.
I will also be looking forward to watch Ishikawa Chiaki’s performance. Being a veteran singer, I definitely look forward to some powerful vocal performance. Not sure what song she will perform though.
As for Hirano Aya. Why? Why is she back in? She traumatized me with her punk version of Bouken Desho Desho last year. I hope her on stage performance will improve. And please, don’t scream screech to the crowd. I hope she sings the song Unnamed World. She probably will. Lol.
Well, all in all, with Horie Yui, Mizuki Nana and Chihara Minori in, I have no other wish than to fly to Japan and watch the concert live. But alas, my wallet doesn’t allow me or rather have no capacity to support me to do so. Besides, I will be working for my internship. Sigh, suddenly life looks so sucky.
Now, I just can’t wait for them to announce the DVD release. I will definitely BUY it. Last year’s DVD was selling at 8000 yen. I hope the marketing department workers don’t start a bright idea of selling two sets of DVD for this concert. E.g, Animelo 2008 Day 1 DVD for 8000 yen and Animelo 2008 Day 2 DVD for another 8000 yen. Oh god, at that time I will have to go and rob some random passer-by that I meet. Damn.
