Tsubasa - SHOCKER

Opening: The show starts with Dark Tsubasa descending from the ceiling and singing about the differences between light and dark with all of M.A.D. dancing around him as his minions. Their little black outfits were adorable with the little red wings on their backs. :3 Tsubasa wore a long black and red coat with feathers around the neck and down the front, which was the most ridiculous looking piece of clothing he wore the entire show, and it didn't even look that bad. Whoever styled him in this show did a fantastic job. And I loved his hair.

Forest: In this scene, Light Tsubasa and some Juniors find and woo some pretty girls in the forest. The boys quite impressed me in this part with the pretty movements. The all looked like gymnasts and ballerinas. The ballroom dancing was a nice touch, too.

Village: The village is invaded by Dark Tsubasa's minions and they capture all the girls. Tsubasaaaaaaa. He acted really well here. I guess I hadn't really thought about it, but to let the audience know his emotions he had to keep turning to the audience and back, still acting out the scene with the people behind him. It was really dramatic and moving.

Dark Warrior Training: The warrior minions train with swords. This is where it became quite confusing for me and my minimal knowledge of Japanese. Either young not-so-evil Dark Tsubasa becomes fully evil and puts that half-mask on, or he was already evil and just had the mask off for a while. Either way, this whole scene was gorgeous. Tsubasa's outfit in this part was black and red with what looked like white bandages wrapped around it. Very cute and very flattering.

Harem: The captured girls from the forest are seduced by Dark Tsubasa and the Juniors. Light Tsubasa comes in and tries to save them, but they end up capturing him for Dark Tsubasa. He looked so sad and surprised here. The girls tie him up with some sheets and he gets suspended in the air, writhing, climbing and struggling. It was really beautiful. Eventually he gets tossed into the underworld.

Forced Labor in the Depths of the Earth: This scene was really intense. Some Juniors approach Light Tsubasa with huge hammers and surround him and bully him until he finally gives in and labors with them. The sound of the hammers hitting the ground created a rhythm that everyone followed perfectly. It was really amazing to watch. I felt so bad for Tsubasa, though! You could tell he hadn't had a break since the beginning of the show: he was sweating from head to toe.

Sacrifice: Light Tsubasa (in a silver costume that I really adored) fights his way back to Dark Tsubasa and the Juniors. Pretty battle scenes with dramatic Junior deaths ensue, culminating in the deaths of both Dark and Light Tsubasa.

Epilogue~Joy&Pain: Everyone from the cast closes the show with a pretty song with a message that I couldn't understand... but it was pretty. Looked rather heaven-like.


Flamenco: Was really excited for this!! First the Juniors came out and performed some flamenco steps in their cute black suits, then Tsubasa appeared and dazzled. I just love the way he twists those wrists ♥. He wore a beautiful black suit with read lining on the inside of the jacket, as well as red heeled shoes with which to make noise. He's so skilled with his feet. And so quick on them! After this, pictures from Tsubasa's time in Spain were shown.

Talk: Cute cute cute. Tsubasa came out and spoke in that really soft voice for a bit. He asked if anyone had a handkerchief that he could use and the girls went nuts. He ended up taking one from this little old lady with blue hair. He was adorable. Then he talked to some girls in the front row for a bit, and called one girl out for using binoculars from the front row. XDDDD He was like, "Where are you looking with the binoculars from this close?" and she was like, "Your eyes." It was cute.

Latin Rhythm&Step: The girls returned in their Latin-inspired dresses and went around groping Tsubasa and enjoying it XD. He was dancing by himself with those six girls. It was as seductive as it could be without people wanting blood. Haha.

Jazz: Tsubasa and the Juniors performed a version of Pride♂ the END here in their black suits. Tsubasa's was very glittery and he looked amazing in it. At one point everyone put on this really cheesy grin and danced together, it was quite adorable.

China: The girls were very pretty in pink Chinese-inspired outfits, and Tsubasa was cute in his red and black one. The background music here was really pretty. It was the same arrangement as in Maaya Sakamoto's parts of "Garden of Everything." I don't really know how that works out...

Nature of Earth Water World: This was very pretty. Tsubasa sang a song atop some rocks in a scene that was designed to looked like it took place underwater. I was a little distracted by the projection of the sea creatures swimming around Tsubasa's head, but I have a thing about sting rays, so...

Nature of Earth Fire World: Here Tsubasa looked dynamite (of course, right?). The red jacket that he wore had a collar of red and black feathers, but that could not stop the sexy from bleeding through.

Light of the Universe: Some kind of Indian theme, I think. Some of the M.A.D. boys showed off their hip-hop skills, and a girl drummer came onstage and wowed the audience.

Throbbing~The Soul's Scream: A big structure was brought onstage consisting of three levels, the highest of which contained a set of drums for beating in the traditional Japanese way (I don't know the term for it). Tsubasa climbed up the structure and the Juniors took their places on its other levels. I had no idea Tsubasa could drum. Obviously he's got a propensity toward it, being a dancer with a focus on rhythm, but still I was thoroughly impressed. A version of EDGE was performed here and I was glad. Also, Tsubasa's back when he drums=♥

The End of the Night and the Journey: With stars all around, Tsubasa, clad in a deep blue suit, sang a sweet, slow song to end the show.


Photos were a kind-of-ridiculous ¥500, considering shop photos of half the size are ¥150... it's probably since fewer were printed and it's an individual stage show that's a lot more personal than a concert or whatever. :( Anyway, they're adorable, right?

THIS SHIRT is so disappointing. Honestly, I could have used Photoshop better than whoever did here. The cutest part about it is the text on the butt ♥

The pamphlet makes up for the price of the photos at a measly ¥2000 for 100 pages of beautiful Tsubasa photos.

This keychain is so adorable ♥

Thanks for the report!
It looked like a beautiful show and I'm glad you could go and share your impressions with us ♥
I'm SO getting this if it comes out on dvd.
October 15th, 2008 10:48 pm (UTC)
You and me both, bb! :D

I can't help but think Legend of Zelda??
That's a nice keychain. :)

hay, I like how you replied to everyone's comment, except mine. not bitchy in the slightest. :3

I had a dream that you were telling me about this IRL and I was kinda like "ehh..." and you were like "Tsubasa is getting way more muscles!" and I was like "what." and you said that the crowd kept moving closer and closer to the stage and when you got close enough, you grabbed his hip and screamed.

tell me that this does not sound like you, y/y?

But I am so happy for you and yet so jealous XD

(and whuttt I don't understand how people can make such detailed concert reports! I was in a DAZE the entire time I saw Tsuyo!)
October 15th, 2008 10:51 pm (UTC)
A lesser person would have been knocked unconscious by the power of Tsuyoshi's music in person. Just be happy you left unscathed. ♥

I wishhhhhhh I could see him, too! I'm jealous of you!

I'm sorry that I couldn't wait a few days to buy the tickets XDDDD. It could have been cheaper, but I was just in a panic at the thought of not seeing him. Basically... he was acting with his face? I dunno, but it wasn't hard to understand at all :D.

I'm totally excited for NEWS~!♥
October 15th, 2008 02:58 pm (UTC) - OMG OMG OMG

Wow that sounded really great! And good job for remembering the stuff that happened during the show. I can never remember the contents of the shows/concerts/musicals that I have attended in such details xD

Btw how did you get the tickets? I am planning to go to Takki's new butai this January and I don't know anyone in T&T FC so :D Damn where the heck is MY SHOCK? (>.>)
October 15th, 2008 10:59 pm (UTC)
I will be in the T&T fanclub by then! :DDDDD

But since I didn't have my membership stuff by the time these tickets went on sale, I bought them from fans on http://www.ticket.co.jp/ who have a whole section for Johnny's tickets :DDD.
October 15th, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
I can't believe you REMEMBERED all that. XD I'd forgotten the order of everything before I even left the theatre. .__.

And I didn't understand as much of what happened as you did, ahaha. *fail*

Also, I spent the whole time they were singing Pride♂ the END trying to remember what it was called, so thanks. XD
October 15th, 2008 11:00 pm (UTC)
I definitely didn't remember the order of everything; I used the pamphlet for that XD.

I've heard a lot of people say that and I still wonder how it is possible.
October 15th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)
I don't know how, either, but it's true! ♥ When he talks, it seems so personal! XD
October 15th, 2008 10:39 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the report :) It sounds incredible! And that keychain looks so cool! And that pamphlet is so cheap. I guess that's because you don't have to pay for all the 'handling' fees -_-v Man! To see Tsubasa in person--that's a dream come true! I'm glad you had such a great time ^^
October 15th, 2008 11:04 pm (UTC)
You're a sweetheart ♥
It really was a dream come true :D.
October 15th, 2008 11:30 pm (UTC)
that show sounds like the shetz. omg i'm so jealous XDDD I'm glad you had such a great time! ♥
October 16th, 2008 03:07 am (UTC)
Thank you!!!! :D Experience of a lifetime ♥
October 16th, 2008 11:33 am (UTC)
You are sooo lucky!! If I was as into Tsubasa as I was like 3 years ago, I'll probably be spamming your comment page with OMGZ FOR REALZ and all that crap. XD
But still, I would die to see Tsubasa ero dance is ACTION. lol
I will never get the chance to see a JE concert I think. Well unless they go to HONG KONG for once. I mean isn't it almost like virtually impossible to get the JE concert tickets unless you bid on yahoo auctions? And thats like a total rip off, isn't it?
October 16th, 2008 11:11 pm (UTC)
I bought them from https://l-tike.com/ where a lot less scalpers go. It's basically fans that couldn't make the dates they got, and they're at fixed prices. I had 300+ Tsubasa tickets to choose from, and we got 5th row seats for only ¥5000 more than the actual ticket price.
