YOU CAN (NOT) ADVANCE ON BLU-RAY IS SO AMAZING IT'S DISGUSTING.

AGAINST ALL REASON, I ACTUALLY TEARED UP DURING THE BIG ACTION SEQUENCE PORTION THAT ALWAYS TAKES MY BREATH AWAY, BECAUSE I JUST COULDN'T BELIEVE HOW IMPOSSIBLY GORGEOUS IT LOOKED ON BLU-RAY.

The sound system they set up in the gym was insane, too! It was clearly state-of-the-art surround sound setup, which was so funny to have in a middle school gym! Even though the screen they were showing on wasn't that big, between the Blu-Ray visuals and the surround sound making me jump a few times, I felt like I was seeing it in IMAX.

They claimed the version we saw was different from the DVD version, but I don't really trust GAINAX on that point (I think it could be just one shot that changed). They inserted a lot of shots here and there (a bunch of scenery, and a few to pump up the action scenes more), but there were only two brand-new scenes... One was with moar Kaji, YAY.

(There's now hidden SPOILERTEXT in the comments, people who have style?=mine set for browsing, be warned!)

I HAVE BEEN THROUGH BOYBAND HELL AND SURVIVED.

I hope I forget how bad this was. Really. Because right now I NEVER WANT TO DO THIS AGAIN. EVER. IN MY LIFE. )

I have to go pick up my dry cleaning. Problem?

I DON'T THINK I CAN GET UP AGAIN. POSSIBLY EVER.

Someone on a Japanese message board wrote that Jun said at some point that one of his future goals for Arashi was to finally have many songs that surpassed A-RA-SHI, because he felt they sometimes relied on A-RA-SHI as a crutch during concerts, and he wanted to reach the point that it wasn't needed anymore.

I think this is the first explanation that makes sense. With Around Asia 2008 on the horizon and the Dome tour just ten shows, if there's a time for them to meet this goal of learning to survive without it for a tour, this would be it.

(General description is still at the Osaka report, this is more talking about what changed and the MCs, not describing stuff all over again.)

ALERT ALERT ALERT

OGURI SHUN IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING ON PLANET EARTH

OKAY WE ALREADY KNEW THAT BUT I CAN AT LEAST NOW CONFIRM HIS CUTENESS IS NOT A HIGHLY ELABORATE ONSCREEN SPECIAL EFFECT??

Hey, you guys? You know what I unquestionably love best of all about queueing for JE stuff?

Eavesdropping on other fangirl conversations. Extra points if the girls in question are kinda bitchy.

I was queueing today (for a short time, as seats were already decided, after all) and the girls in back of me were such elitist bitches. They were just sort of looking around and surveying the rest of the crowd, and commenting on how their Satoshi fan brethren were clearly the most 気が強い of all Arashi fans. "Well, of course, Sho-chan fans are probably almost as good. But, ugh, Aiba-chan fans are soooo immature!" Oh, boybands, never stop being serious business.

Ohhhh my god.

Short version of this story goes: for those of you who have been to Harajuku, I will just say, the line was four people wide, and stretched from the second entrance of Omotesando Hills to TEN FEET AWAY FROM THE TURNOFF TO JOHNNY'S SHOP.

But I am ahead of myself. FREESTYLE Exhibition: 2/23/08. )

I'm really really sleepy now. Yeah. I'm going to go sleep for like a month now.

Concert ticket: way too much money
Concert goods: lots and lots of money
Conclusion: TOTALLY WORTH IIIIIIIIT

I think I'm an addict now. I put in my fanclub app tonight. And Nino seemed to hint that there was a winter tour in our future, and if that's the case, I am SO there. )

I...need to wake up in five hours. *cringe* Thank god I don't have to actually teach tomorrow. I'm also really hungry. Maybe one of these days I will learn to actually start keeping food in my apartment. I'm too tired to walk down to the konbini.

I also don't know how those boys do it; I felt ready to crash into bed by the end of the concert myself, and all I was doing was waving my penlight and uchiwa.
