Funny thing about all this is that... I DIDN'T GET STARSTRUCK TIL TODAY! or didn't fully realize it at least... HA HA! I was sitting around at work and REALLY thought about it and it struck me... I was goofing around with SCANDAL this past weekend... CHYEAH!!!

Well since I was split up from the group at most of the greetings, I was pretty much front and center when I came up to the band... SERIOUS!!!

"Heh, this post turned out to be longer than I expected... I think I got caught up in the moment? HA HA! It's a lot of reading, but damn, I had to share my experience to you guys here since I can't express anything upfront..."


Spoiler:

For the panel/autograph session, my sister and I were a bit late so we ended up near last for the autograph session... I'm talking about 5th person from being last... HA HA! Works out in my favor since time wasn't rushed greatly when it was my turn...

- Mami was first up and I approached the table with my fingers pointing to my hair, barking out "Hey Mami! Do you remember this at the airport?" (Dynamic orbiting gestures to my hair)... She looks up in awe and looks at Tomomi and says "AhHh! Manga... something... Manga!" and they trade comments as Mami finishes signing the card and hands it to Tomomi...

- Tomomi continues the convo and says "Tall!" and I reply back "Yeah, but it's just just the hair that makes it seem that way..."... Tomomi responds "10cm?" and I fire back "Yeah just about 3 inches... (I put 3 fingers up to my hairline for comparison)... Actually yeah, it's up to this length."... Tomomi then says something quickly in Japanese and I don't catch a word she says and we end up staring at each other... blankly... all the while my fingers are still raised... I look at Tomo, Tomo looks at me, I look at Rina, Rina looks back, I look at Tomo again and all I could wimper out was "Eh?" (BWAH HA HA!)... Tomo gives me that "out of body" look and hands the card to Rina...

- Rina says "Hello!" and I say "Hey Rina!"... In the midst of her signing the card, we had a lil conversation like this:

"Oh hey Rina, are you pretty good with the double bass?"
"Eh, dabou baesu?"
"Yeah double bass, the double bass pedals?"
"Dabou baesu..." (She looks over to the tall guy in the grey shirt who was standing on the left (ah, who was he again? HA HA!) and he walks over...)
"Oh hey, I was just asking Rina if she knew how to play the double bass."
"Ah, dabou baesu?"
"Double bass, umm, double kick bass." *BHANG BHANG BHANG BHANG!* (I gesture my hands like I'm pounding on the double pedals...)
"OH! DOUBLE BASS! Oh no... Difficult, very difficult..."

I throw my hands into the air and give out a heavy "AhHhHh!" and we're all laughing at each other...

- Haruna... *SWOON*... Haruna says "Hi!" and I say "Hello Haruna!"... (Everyone should know about my Haruna right ear fetish, so guess what I aimed for?)

"Hey Haruna, are you wearing your earrings?"
"Eh?"
"Hai, earrings." (I turn my head and go down the line of my piercings)
"Oh! No, not today..." (She pulls her hair back and shows me both her ears... WOO!)
"nothing... WHAT?! NO!"

Even though I shouted, I was jolly as hell at that moment... Rina was still laughing with the both of us because I had broken that silent barrier that the lil crowd brought, but it was enough to start the weekend right...


The autograph session was good, but the 1st meet and greet was absolutely epic!

I forgot who sat next to me, but I got the front and center seat with the huge table gap... Both Tomomi and Rina had a clear view of me and vice versa... So what did I do? Walked in, looked at the band and gave a small "woo!" w/ "rock on!" fist pump, sat down, then Tomomi made a face at me and gave me a "rock on!" fist pump, I return fire with a small "yeah!" w/ "rock on!" fist pump... I turn over to Rina, "BHANG BHANG BHANG BHANG!" (paddle my handles), she giggles and gestures to Mami...

So everytime either Rina or Tomomi met eyes with me, I'd nod my head and I'm pretty sure they knew what hand gestures I was throwing up in my mind because they'd shake their heads and smile... HA HA!

So here's the question I asked:
"I like listening to heavy metal music and I just wanted to know if the band has put any thought into making a heavy metal track?"

Tomomi answers the question and it was something like this:

"As a band in the beginning, there was no intention of doing heavy metal tracks, but when the band was asked to make a track for Fullmetal Alchemist, we experimented on many styles and produced that specific track. Initially Shunkan Sentimental, was entitled "Shunkan Senti-metal", so that was the closest as metal that we've come. Currently there are no plans to make a heavy metal track, but all things are being considered so you can look forward to a possibility."

WOO! I throw a "rock on!" fist pump for the band and do another double bass "BHANG!" to Rina... She laughs... HA HA!

Throughout the whole time, all I did was make eye contact and mess around with Tomomi and Rina because it couldn't be helped! WOO HA!... All the way to the end when we're all leaving, I did one more RO fist pump & blurt out "OSU!" and the girls are liking it or just having a ball at it because Mami says back "CHEEZU!"...

Of course that's not the end of it... Right before we pick up our bags from the wall, I walk into the guy in the grey shirt again... Here's what I said:

"Hmm?! Wow! You are tall!" (Dude, I didn't realize he was about the same height as me, minus the hair...)
"Oh no, no. You are tall!"
"No way, it's just the hair! You're naturally tall!"
"*HA HA!* What's that, about 10cm?"
"HA! Yeah, just about, it's 3 fingers height."
(HA! He pats me on the shoulder and we laugh back at each other, all the while Rina and Mami are looking our way...)

I pick up my stuff, bow and thank the gentleman, look over to Rina and hold out my drumsticks: "Rina, I'm gunna try to get your autograph on these, but we'll see..."... I RO fist pump my way out the door...


The concert is self explanatory... Priceless! The only other tidbit that was memorable to me personally was when the girls were walking out after the concert... I yelled out "RINA! DOUBLE BASS!" and she looked dead at me... fuggin epic... (marked at the 13th second of Nuclear's video... PWAH HA HA! my loud mouth...)...



And the finale, the final meet and greet... I didn't try or want to be as loud as the previous day because it was a chill day for them, but whatever it was, I noticed they were looking at me right before I sat down, so I just gave a small "woo!" RO fist pump and double bass'd the air at Rina... (HA HA! RO fist pumps...) They were all chuckling and for sure Tomo said something about me to Rina because she looked up again at me and laughed under her breath... Even when I sat down, Tomo looked in my direction and I RO fist pumped her, she smiled... Mami looked my way and I waved at her, she smiled... Lastly Haruna looked at me, I waved and she smiled... *melts*

I couldn't think of anything to ask in the end because that was it, I was fully satisfied and the band had just blown me away with all the love they had shown me... CHYEAH!!! EPIC!!!

The end? No way...

The handshakes? No way, I didn't shake their hands... I GAVE THEM HIGH 5s!!! HA HA!


Haruna... "Hi!", "Haruna! oh, HIGH FIVE!"

I kinda caught Haruna off guard because she reached out to shake my hand and I raised mine up, so when the she raised up and our hands came into contact, I put in too much "OOMPH!" and knocked her off balance a bit... HA HA!

Rina... RINA!!! Right before I got up to her, she was like "Oh! Ah you! Metal Boy!", "Metal Boy?", "Metal Boy!", (high five), "HA HA! DOUBLE BASS! (hand pedals)... we chuckle!... Pricless: Rina gave me a knickname... *tears*

Tomomi... "TOMOMI!", (RO fist pump w/"OSU!"), "YEAH!", (high five)

Mami... "Mami! Hey you like the Strokes?!... Now I got no response from Mami because I didn't realize how high my "high five" had gone up from it's original height, so she ended up staring at my hand... HA HA!


So throughout the whole event, I've been trying to get Rina's signature on my set of drumsticks, but no luck, no signature... BOO! So I ended up handed my sticks over to Rina as a gift... "If I couldn't have her siggy on my sticks, then the next best thing to do was to give her the set of sticks that I've been showing to her all this time... HA HA! Stupidly it didn't occur to me that I should have signed them instead so that it'd have been a momento from me, but ah, I'll save that for next time...


Epic... Totally epic...


Much love to everyone at SH that could attend and support the band!
Much love to AM2 for making it happen!

Especially much love to SCANDAL... nuff said...

Q: Tomomi, in Namida no Regret PV, you are the only one crying over a girl. Why is that, and is that how you feel about the other band members?
T: My character in the PV was crying over a close friend. I am close friends with the other three members, but definitely not romantically. I am interested in boys. (lots of awkward laughter over this)

"definitely not romantically. I am interested in boys"
it was too good to be true Tongue hahahaha (sorry for that comment but I had to say it xD)
Tomo is super cute :3
I imagine her face expressions so kawaii! lucky you guys that had the opportunity to be there with the girls!
& thanks for all the info you shared with us ^_^

@zim: dude man... it was priceless... you know how badly I wanted the siggy on the sticks, but thinking back on it, they gave me more than any inky sig on paper could be worth...

Even seeing Sadie messing around with Ross was priceless... man... I'm utterly speechless...

yeah, it was definitely a complete package experience. the autographs and other material stuff cant really be compared with the interactions and laughs, and vice versa.

but dont worry, next time we see em we'll have learned from our mistakes and you can give em signed drumsticks while i give Tomo a Doraemon plushie haha Clap

@RYDAH BLADE & Zim: For the autograph session, it was just me and my sister... For the 1st meet & greet, Glenn, Toshiko, Ansom and my sister were there... Then the final meet and greet, it was just Vince, my sister and I...

My sister got the best view of our antics since she was always next to me... HA HA! but for real, SH put it down at AM2!

I'm jealous that you guys could go and greet them at LAX airport. I thought they would arrive at John Wayne. I did have a hunch that they would eat at the IHOP next to where I lodged. kanonxkanon concert was great, so it was not too great of a loss for me Happy May someone post their arrival vids for downloading? I saw them on Youtube.

You could just use a Youtube to MP4 converter to download the videos. Just Google for them. Some of them you won't even have to download the program, just have to copy and paste the link into a box or wherever it says to copy and paste the YT link to.

Can't thank you guys enough.

At first I thought Haruna ignored us cuz she looked pretty tired but then I saw this picture on my album:



She's looking at the banner and smiling n_n

Then I'm sure most of you have seen this one already, cannot get any more explicit than this, they loved it:

Ah Haruna noticed!!! Glad to know this XDD
