First, let's talk about this child ♥ I have some video, and I have some pics~ ( Lotsa pics and spazzing~ )
And now, we move on to Sono Tettou! Today I saw the 2PM afternoon show and 7PM evening show, and...wow, I just...it's hard to come up with words for this show. Except that it was amazing. It was completely different from Reverse Historica, indeed. If Reverse Historica was close to a normal *pnish* Box series show or something, then Sono Tettou was much much closer to something like Aru Hi
, so that should tell you the level of thinkiness it evoked in the audience XD;;;; ( Spoilery stuff behind here--you've been warned! )
This, though, this was not the end to the AMAZINGNESS that was today. After the evening show, I went out with my new friend Ayumi (I'd bought a ticket via mixi from her last week, and we met up again and I hung out with her) to dinner. Around 10 PM, though, I realized I had LEFT ALL THE DECOSSAM BAGS in the theater--locked safe in a coin locker, of course, but the coin lockers reset in the morning >_<
We ran back to Aoyama Theater to see if anyone was still around, and sure enough it was dark, except for one long security guard. We begged his help, and he actually let us go up to the 3rd floor by ourselves--and funnily enough, the route we took was the backwards route the guys use to come out for demachi XD (we were going in and up, whereas they come down and out).
I tracked down the coin lockers, resisting the STRONG STRONG urge to check out the backstage area since I was 100% alone in an empty theater for the first and likely last time, and we headed back downstairs.
I knew a shortcut to Shibuya station, so we took it, and I lead the way. It happened to come out right at Gain, so I snuck a quick glance over, but as it was 10:30 by then (and Gain closes at 8) it was of course dark. We hurried on to Shibuya station, and got to talking about random things with each other.
About 1 light away from the main crossing to get to the station, I saw someone approaching from across the street out of the corner of my eye. I didn't pay them much attention, since they were just crossing towards our side of the street, and kept walking.
And then I noticed they seemed to be waving, and they seemed really familiar. So I turned to face them fully.
It was YAMASHITA-TENCHOU.
Yamashita-tenchou spotted me crossing the street in SHIBUYA (SUPER BUSY) at 10:30 at night XDDDDDD I LOVE BEING FOREIGN. GAIJIN POWER FTW. We hadn't gotten to talk much earlier that day, so he got excited seeing I was already making good use of The Bag 8D He asked where we'd just come from, and we answered Sono Tettou, and then asked him where HE was just coming from, and apparently he'd only JUST left Gain!
He'd been talking to "Nagayama-kun" for a long while, he said, and it had kept him there late (NOTE TO SELF: STEAL TENCHOU'S PHONE ALONG WITH GAKU'S). Nagayan had wanted to know how the Bag sales went (me: *FLAILS INSIDE AS SHE WITNESSES HISTORY*), and was delighted to hear they'd gone--every last one of them--in SEVEN HOURS.
Yup--sold out by 6PM! OTSUKARESAMA DESHITAAAAA~!!!
Of course, I wasn't about to let this GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY pass me buy, and I NOT SO SUBTLY hinted that Nagayama-san and Tsuchiya-san should be proud then, and should, oh I dunno, consider making more 8D Tenchou heartily agreed, and said THEY'D BEEN TALKING ABOUT THE SAME THING.
NAGAYAN'S TOTALLY OPEN TO DOING MORE.
POTENTIALLY. 4TH CHILD ON THE WAY.
Though, Tenchou admitted, it could possibly just be Nagayan re-releasing one of the previous ones, like this bag, again (which hey, that'd be fine too!). Tenchou had to head down to the subway, and Ayumi and I were headed to the JR lines, so we parted ways, and I told him to tell Nagayan he definitely had a market if he did some more, and thanks for the great item.
I LOVE OUR FANDOM. BECAUSE WE GET TO BE PART OF STUFF LIKE THIS THANKS TO IT.
I'M SO TIRED GUYS. G'NIGHT.ETA:
HOLY SHIT I JUST REMEMBERED.
In the pamphlet, the guys get interviews like Eiji and Daiki did, and Wasshi interviewed this guy I didn't recognize at first, until I realized it was the DIRECTOR OF ARU HI.
And in his talking about Tuti, of course he MENTIONED Aru Hi. The context? "You know...if I ever have the opportunity, I'd love to do Aru hi with you 4 *pnish* guys. If I got to work with you, I'd love to do something along the lines of that.
*PNISH*?! DOING ARU HI? HO. LY. SHIT.
I read this before I watched the evening show, and I must've spent half the time thinking about who would play which character. I really think Wasshi would be the best Man #2 (Nagayan's part--because Wasshi seems like he could go crazy really well, while still keeping it cool and creepy like Nagayan did). What do you guys think?
