lm.c {denkiman}
So, here is my second attempt at writing a live report~
Don't expect a fully detailed, second by second report because my memory is not that good, it's more like a "things I liked" report.

I was in the C-block, line 11 on the left side so even if I was a bit far, I had a good view of Aiji&Maya's side of the stage.

*This part will probably confuse you more than anything so skip it if you don't care about the setting of the stage*

The main stage had 3 levels: the main floor with Aiji, Maya and Mackaz, the floor with Denki, Death-O and Jun and a smaller stage behind Death-o. The background was made of a pink&black "curtain" (think about the profile pics) that came from the top floor and ended as a "big carpet" on the main floor. There were 2 bright pink gates on each side of the stage (think shinto shrine) which led to small platforms on each side of the stage.
There was another small stage right in the middle of the public and a tiny one on the left side with "LM.C" written in spots. I actually didn't notice those 2 until METALLY XD

*check Denki-man's ameba to see pictures*

setlist stolen from So-net:

SE. NO.9
2. Bell the CAT
5. Galileo
8. mR.century
9. cosmology
10. marble-s
13. Z-MAN
16. 88
17. 僕らの未来
19. little Fat Man boy
20. JOHN
21. Boon!
24. ☆Rock the LM.C☆

They began the concert with PUNKYHEART which totally rocks!
It's definitely a live songs, it gets you pumped up right from the beginning!

At the beginning of METALLY, Maya and Denki disappeared from the stage! I was like "are they gonna run through the public?" but they reappeared on the small stage on the left. They went on a small moving bridge? (think about Ai no Command in KT's Queen of the Pirates, and I can't believe I'm giving that as a reference...), Denki holding two spots and Maya singing. They went from the left side of the public to the right and then went back to the stage in the middle. They hopped down and finished the song there. Maya almost fell at some point but Denki helped him~
At the end of the song, they went back to the main stage by running through the public ^o^

I love DAYS' solo!!

Aiji used a new guitar during cosmologie and marble-s!!
I was a bit far so I didn't get a clear view of it but it's black with rainbow stripes continuing the cords. It may or may not be his new "signature model" but I sure hope it is.
I'll try to make a quick drawing of it when I get back in Shanghai.

Bokura no Mirai is a very pretty song, more emotional than their other "ballads". The piano solo gives it a different flavour.

The intro of @FUNNY PHANTOM@ is @FUNNY LOVE@ XD It starts with a sample of "Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh Ooh!" at which we sang along.

The was no encore, which really surprised me! The concert lasted 2h30 but somehow it left me an "unfinished" feeling, like "hey, where's the encore?".


Even if my Japanese is awful, their MCs are extremelly funny!

Looks like Aiji didn't get a lot of sleep before the concert but he said he often only sleeps 4hours a night so it wasn't that weird. I cried a bit in my heart, Aichu really should get more rest!

Just before, Maya teased us saying they always do things together which made everyone go "Wooohooo" XD

Their relationship with the session members is really awesome, they're not like anonymous guys just there to play their instruments~
When Maya started introducing them, he went "well whatever". Mackaz, Jun, Denki and Death-o made this funny reaction, very anime-like XDD

Jun kept repeating "tooth" (or not but it sounded like that) when it was his turn XD

Aichu likes Mackaz's voice?
I didn't really get that part but when Mackaz started to speak, Maya was obviously expecting Aiji to say something. When he didn't -he was more or less ignoring them- Maya said Aiji usually say something when Mackaz talks. But I didn't really understood what Maya was saying ><

At some point, Maya wondered if people outside the venue could hear the concert and someone in the public shouted they could. So Maya loudly called "SOTO!" and we waited in silent for an answer but we didn't hear anything XD

Before 88, Maya kept talking about the stars which you can't see in Tokyo, because of LM.C? but I didn't get why... probably because they're too shiny XD He kept talking about the stars and hinting about us singing for a loooong time and then he was like "I'm talking about 88 by the way" XDDD like we didn't get the hints XDDD

Maya asked if we could see him from afar. He said that since his outfit was matching the curtain/carpet thing, we probably couldn't, it was like some camouflage, and then he laid down on the floor XDDD

Aichu made a really funny noise during one of the MCs, or was it the intro of a song? whatever. Maya made us shout and Aiji yelled "Yaooooon" in his mic! He used a really high pitched voice so at first I wasn't sure who did it~ Maya was surprised too and asked Aiji to do it again but he got all shy and refused. So Maya made us shout again and Aiji finally did it again XD

Maya asked us from where we were coming from~ I yelled "Furansuuuuuu!!" but he didn't hear me ;_;

At the end of the concert, Aiji, Maya, Denki, Death-o, Jun and Mackaz joined hands and after being told by Maya they jumped down the stage, right in front of the public~~

Well, that's all I can think about it~
It was really exhausting with all the jumping/parapara-ing/shouting, I thought I was going to collapse at the end of Rock the LM.C ><
There were more guys than I was expecting -4! on the block on my right-
But the public on my side was pretty "calm", they didn't made that much noise comparing to the FC seats and the right side... The girl on my right didn't even move during the whole concert...

Hummm... I can't think about anything else...
I hope this wasn't too long/confusing/unintersting >3
