The NaB's A Happy New Years Gig~  
The NaB's are Karl, Kippy, Kenn, Rasta (in pictoral order)I love the NaB's!!

I think I've said that a million times. In fact, I say that every time that I go to their concerts or see them in some way. They're really talented, they play the kind of music that I like the best, and they're incredibly hot and incredibly dorky, which is a totally winning combination. ^.^

So, yeaaaah.. I went to their latest live, on last Sunday, the 8th! ^^ It was GREAT!!!

The one thing that I really have to note is that there was two performances that day, and we chose the earlier one because some friends were going to the same one. ^^ XD The funny thing is, even though the later performance was sold out, the one that we chose was incredibly empty. ^^;;;;; I uh, kinda felt bad, because looking around, quite a large part of the audience was friends or family! ^^;;;; (including us? haha, maybe ^.~)

But.. even though some people (KENN) seemed a little surprised seeing the place only about 1/3 full, he didn't let it get him down! In fact, he seemed to try 8x harder to be genki and make up for the missing people!

I'm actually not going to say a lot about the performance.. I'll link to some of my friends' reports instead, because I'm not sure what to say. I honestly think that they were parodying "24" and not the drama that Miyu mentioned, though. But it was HILARIOUS watching Kenn pretend to be the "Elite Fuji Yu.... err, Elite elite elite Kenn!!"

I also REALLY loved Karl's new song! Uwa, go Karl GO!!! SUGEE! I really liked it!! ^-^ They did Kenn and Karl's duet also, which I STILL want a copy of, and Tobe, which I have NO IDEA why it isn't out on CD yet! (why???!) And of course, the best medley ever, thrash-My Heart Will Go On combined with The Neverending Story. They often play that song at their lives, and it's so much fun hearing Kenn sing in engrish~ gotta love it!! ^-^ We'll hafta work on that pronunciation sometime, tho~ ^.^

So, links~

I second your thoughts on "Tobe." It needs to be out on single. It's far too catchy and wonderful and you can punch the air and lunge and do all sorts of wonderful things whle singing it. And a new song for Karl? *hearts Karl* Any news on when a new single will be coming out, or must we continue to wait in agony?

We'll have to keep waiting in agony. They said that they'd like to do an album this year, but it's only a pipe dream at the moment.

*sigh* I've already purchased "Wake Up Your Heart" for everyone I know. I guess I'll have to start passing it out to strangers. Have you been to the official NaB's site? They list the available NaB's goods, but don't mention a way to obtain said goods. Any ideas on this?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 13th, 2006 05:15 am (UTC)
I've been there. ^^ Mmmmm some of the goods are sold out, but I think that you can mail order them if you live in Japan. Otherwise, they sell them at the concerts. ^^

Ah. My eyes were drawn to the phone straps. They're made of goodness. Anything with Karl is goodness, though. I have much bias. Hope you enjoy myu tomorrow. Oh yes, I was wondering, on a more personal side, I know you've studied Japanese on your own for a while; are there any texts you recommend?

You probably hear this a lot, but you are definitely living my dream! Man, maybe I should find the first thing that will take me to Japan so I can blow my money on Tenimyu-related events XDDD You are the best role model EVER :D

Oh wow! The NaBs! ♥ How I wish they would come to America to sing for us...plus Kimeru. -sigh-

It was great, as always. ^^ But I like full concerts, they're part of what gets me excited- all the people. ^^

I'll try to hunt it down!! ^^ I don't know anything about it, but it must be pretty new if they're parodying it!

Nope, I don't mind at all! ^^

Kenn looks like he got XXX all over his face! Heeheeheee!!!! >=D

I wanted to put up a picture but was too lazy to draw one, and I didn't want people to steal the image. Heheeeeeee..

THis has nothing to do with that. But you were looking for the Original Myu as a first press. ^___^ I found one for you.

One has an auction ID of: r22887014 and its being sold by chacofu_yo <-This one is cheaper and ENDS 1/13 AT 20:31!
And another of: f40777235 and its being sold by okamoto5555 <-This one is more expensive.
Momokoxelloss_poo on January 13th, 2006 02:03 am (UTC)
These were on Yahoo!Japan.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 13th, 2006 05:21 am (UTC)
Arigtaou, sweetie!! ^-^ I'll keep an eye on the auctions!
Momokoxelloss_poo on January 13th, 2006 08:40 am (UTC)
I found it and hoped you would see it in time. :)

It was an AWESOME live!!
Actually, I can vouch for miyu_chan. The dorama they were parodying was definitely Odoru Daissousen because they even played the same theme music as the dorama and the typeset for the title was the same as the dorama. That dorama is also a detective police comedy dorama. Since I had watched this dorama, this movie was esp. funny!^^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 13th, 2006 02:31 pm (UTC)
I'm going to ask Aya for a suggestion on how to get them, I think. She probably knows at least one way. ^^ I hope!!
