@Don Dio, Metal Mickey, madeindar: Thank You for the explanations. Smile 

@park23: I thought that as well. I saw that in movies and in the tv where the president is protected by bullet proof glass.

I just saw the entire show. The atmosphere is quite different than at their usual live performances. I really like it. They should do that more often.

This video is so good,thanks a lot for the subs.
It's funny to watch the fans seemingly having no idea how to sort of behave at a rock show without going totally crazy and wild,with all their usual 'singing' along [actually it's more like shouting...or chanting] and pointing their finger in the air etc Happy
I went to Japan in June to see two shows on their tour and it was great of course,but I wish I could see them at a show where you can actually see and hear them properly like at this gig. At the first show I was at [in a tiny venue with like,200 people] you literally couldn't see the members on stage most of the time...you also could hardly breathe and it was like,about 45 degrees C Happy The second one was much better,at Zepp Nagoya...I was upstairs where you can actually see the band over the heads of the audience down on the floor part. Also I was right in front of the mixing desk,so it was the best place to actually hear it properly.
The other problem though was you couldn't hear the vocals properly...the band was loud,like any rock band, but all the vocals were drowned out by the audience chanting along with every song...except the two slower songs in the middle of the set,in which not one person made the slightest noise,or movement.Happy They all seem to have rehearsed all the crowd reactions etc for each song,to the point where it's like the whole thing is as if it's been choreographed between them all or something Happy
It was like nothing I've ever seen,and I've seen and played at thousands of rock gigs. People here go to rock gigs to listen and watch the band,not to be like a football crowd chanting and pumping their fists in the air the whole night Happy It was an interesting cultural experience at least...and the band were awesome of course Happy
They are all brilliant players and singers,but Rina especially is a just really amazing,tight,intuitive drummer who plays with beautiful feel.
And at the actual gig Haruna's guitar is a lot louder in the mix than on the dvd's etc too...which was great!

I watched the show off their Facebook page without the subs, and I could only pick up a small portion of the stories Haruna told.  I have a long way to go in my Japanese studies to understand these MCs.

The subtitle version was very much appreciated.  I do wish they spoke a little more on the origination of some of the songs, but overall this was a nice show and good setlist for the occassion.  The subtitled version also went to the end of the program and it was nice seeing the girls dancing a bit at the end.  The fan that joined them for "Doll" really seemed like she won the lottery.  Good for her.  The funniest moment was when one of the girls said something like, "the secret is out: Scandal is short."

@ELFLOCK
I have read in a few blogs from international fans that have said the same thing about going to Scandal concerts in Japan.  The entire crowd reacts exactly the same at the same moment.  It has to be weird for an outsider to experience.  The closest I've come to this was at a Ben Folds show last month.  He played solo with just a piano.  There was one song where the entire crowd sang the various musical parts that would have accompanied the song.  I wasn't familiar with the song, which made it even more strange.  I was in the balcony and could see the crowd below me all moving in the same way.  When I finished I turned to my friend and said, "I guess we missed the rehearsal."  This is what I imagine a Scandal show must be like in Japan.  I hope to experience this some day.
