Sunday we were also in the balcony, and yomimashou and I sat off to one side so that our Sou fan friends could take the good seats (we hadn't been able to get four seats near one another). This time, the audience was overwhelmed with Sou fan, all equipped with green Sexy Zone penlights. It's alway nice to see the huge outpouring of support for Sou at these things ;___;
6Tones did the same opening, Gamushara, FIREBEAT, and Haruka na Yakusoku, before Sexy Show came out and did Sexy Zone. Then they all did Otoko never give up together… talk about awkward. Finally, it was time for the opening talk, and they spent a little more time on it than before, introducing Sexy Show as well. For some reason, Gengen was flirting with Juri really hardcore, and squealing and nodding when Juri said "I'm cool, right?" and stuff. XD;; It was cute |D;;
After Hokuto and Juri's solos (Taiga's first solo got cut), Sexy Show did a medley of Sexy Zone songs, and they were amazing at dancing as usual. Then, during 6Tones' KisuMai songs after that, they came up into the balconies and danced along and waved at the fans and stuff. They were really cute. ♥
Before the shamisen part started, they did a little bit of an MC/some talking, and Gengen came and stood really close to Sou XD; Sou noticed and was like you're too close! But didn't seem unhappy about it. It was adorable, and they both grinned at one another. Then the shamisen part started, and… it sounded a lot more prerecorded than the previous day. I wondered if the previous day had had too many mistakes, and as a result they had had them fake playing the shamisen on Sunday. XD; Either way, they were very cool, and afterwards, Gengen gushed about how cool Juri had been playing the shamisen. Meanwhile, Sou was awed by the fact that he and Shintaro are the same age but Shintaro is huge compared to him. |D;; Also, at some point during this MC part, Gengen called Matsuku "Machuku," which caused the following conversation to happen:
Hokuto: So are you guys like 'JiguIwa,' then?
Juri: 'JiguIwa,' or maybe… 'HokuJuri'?
Shintaru: Or maybe 'Morotaro'?!
Juri: One of these things is not like the others…
After that, they talked about what sort of challenge they'd like to try on Ippatsu Kimetaru J, and awkwardly… asked Sou what he would want to do. He's not a junior, guys!! But then Matsuku talked about how Fukka (Fukasawa from Snow Man) had given him a hat that was too small for Fukka… but it was too big for Matsuku still XD;; Later, Juri started teasing Gengen, and Gengen, I kid you not, did "talk to the hand" to Juri. XD; I don't know if this is common in other countries besides America-- I didn't even know it was common in Japan!-- but it's when someone is annoying you so you sort of make a "stop" gesture with your hand and look away from them. Gengen was so sassy! It was really cute.
The VTR was much shorter and less exciting this time… there were no individual messages, just a brief segment from Gamushara. After that, Yugo talked about watching Gamushara for Jesse, aww. And then at the end of the MC, Juri told Taiga what to say again, and it was cute XD;
After the MC was Taiga's Murasaki again, and then Shintaro with Back to Back again, and then Yugo's talk section. This time, he told pretty much the most amazing story ever about going to Hakone with Jesse |D; Apparently over summer break, one day, Jesse called Yugo late at night like, "Let's go to Hakone tomorrow!!" and Yugo was surprised by how last minute it was, but was like okay, because Jesse is cute. XD;;; And then Jesse was like great, you rent a car and get a hotel! And Yugo agreed because Jesse was cute |D; But he couldn't find a way to get a car or a hotel the night before, so he managed to find a friend who had a brand new fancy car, and promised not to crash it so his friend let him borrow it. |D; Actually, he was like, "Of course I didn't actually say I won't crash it!! Then he'd never believe me!" XD; So then the next morning he went to go pick up Jesse, and Jesse showed up wearing a short sleeve long coat? Which Yugo thought was kind of weird but whatever, and they went to Hakone… and Jesse was like so what are we doing? And Yugo was like I thought you had a plan?! But apparently Jesse had been expecting Yugo to have a plan too |D; So Yugo took them to an onsen (you can stay overnight at some onsen without a private room, so I think this is what they did), and they got in a wine bath, but Jesse was getting really worked up and hyper, and said it wasn't real wine (or something? It's been a long time since I heard this XD), and then they got into another bath when… a giant bee flew into the water. XD;; And Jesse freaked out and was screaming and flailing, saying to kill it, but Yugo was like, I don't want to kill a living thing, so he took it out and helped it… and then it flew right onto an old man's leg. Jesse started freaking out again |D; So then they ran away. But later they saw an ambulance and Jesse freaked out again, saying "YOU KILLED THAT OLD GUY!!" and so Yugo went up to one of emergency crew and asked what had happened… and it turned out a small child fell down the stairs, so it wasn't Yugo's fault. |D I feel like I didn't do this story justice, but it was so funny that I was laughing really hard the whole time. And Yugo kept called Jesse "too cute," which was adorable. XD; Also, when Yugo reenacted Jesse's voice, it was totally spot on, it sounded just like Jesse XD;
After that, they continued on to the last spurt, but Hokuto was starting to look not so good (and then that evening it was announced that he was sick, and missed the rest of the shows), poor guy. They did Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana, and all of them were at various levels of knowing the hand motions. |D;;; Yugo didn't really know them at all, and kept sneaking glances at the people around him. Also at one point, Yugo and Hokuto hugged during one of the songs, which was cute ♥
Whew. That took more effort than I expected |D;;; I didn't get much done this weekend, did I? T__T;;; Oh well, now that I'm well rested I'll try to keep up my productivity over the next week!
