• Shinobu-san has boyfriend??
Like I know wwwww

gakugeikai asked:

Do you happen to know why Yojiro cried at the end of "Breath"?

Eeehhh… I think it was a combination of a few things, really.

First, he was playing on a piano that had been destroyed in the Sendai earthquake/tsunami disaster. That sort of connection to a terrible event, in such a small country, where the catastrophe of an area is felt more widely than it would be, say, here in the States, can make anyone feel upset.

Second, according to reports at the time, he and his girlfriend were on the verge of breaking up, if they weren’t broken up already. There had been some public fighting and rumors that she was cheating, which seem to be verified by witnesses seeing these things in public. They don’t seem to be together now, though whether or not he’s with anyone else, I don’t know. 

And third, the lyrics of the song itself are pretty powerful and full of love, but they were written at a very different time in his life, so they might have been reminding him of some things.

My personal opinion is that all of these things sort of crashed on him all at one time, and he just couldn’t keep it together. The other members look like they were caught pretty off-guard by it, and they’re doing they’re best not to call attention to it or look at him and just let it pass. Noda himself is pretty embarrassed by the whole thing, and he keeps telling the audience that he’s okay and it’s fine, though it’s clearly not. I think he just didn’t expect it to come on him like that. And I lose my shit every time I see it, because when Noda cries, I cry. It’s a law of the universe. I don’t even question it.

I can’t ever really know for sure what it was, but this is my guess. I hope this rambling helps. :-/

School Arts Festival

Drop in here, come visit
Today’s the long awaited school arts festival
Everyone’s been working hard together as one
To make one big stage
Hold on, is it so?
Why must I be here?
Okay, okay, line up, straighten out your chests, the curtain is going to fall

The role I was assigned to was just a nondescript “Boy D”
This wasn’t what I wished for
I guess it’s good to be picked to go on stage from a crowd
But I was just given the role “Boy D”
Teacher, in my world, no matter what others say, I am the protagonist

In this world I am “Boy D”, a “Boy D” who doesn’t even have a name
Who only needs to say one line, “Good night”
On a stage that can go on without me
“Boy D” standing in a corner
No one sees him
But to me, he’s a VIP
Yes, without me, the play cannot start
In my world

I’ve waited for a while, I’m gonna go out
Finally it has come, it’s my turn, open up a path
Everyone, this is my street
Come one, shine the lights brighter for me
What? What did you say?
Santa is still riding his carriage?
That’s only in your world, but this is reality

Present or not, it doesn’t matter
You’ve got no right to order me around
The light that shines on the protagonist
Only leaks a weak brightness
My illumination, that’s the proof that I’m here
Living on other people’s leftovers is my pride
Think this, act this out
Push your chest out and play your role well

“If it’s like this” he murmured, and “Boy D” finally went wild
Something unexpected happened and on the stage, was a solo act
“Boy D” who was sadly captured while trying to escape from the crowds
Teacher, this is public now
No matter what anyone says, I am the protagonist

In this world I am “Boy D”, a “Boy D” who doesn’t even have a name
Who only needs to say one line, “Good night”
On a stage that can go on without me
“Boy D” standing in a corner
No one sees him
But to him, he’s a VIP
Yes, with or without me
There’s no difference? That’s impossible
Without me things won’t be like this

The school arts festival is a huge failure, let’s hold a reflection meeting for our faults
What now? What are we going to do?
What on earth do you want to do?
You’re such a nuisance, how many thousands of times do you want to apologize?
Please swear to everyone that you’ll save the play at the end the next time round

In this world I am “Boy D”, a “Boy D” who doesn’t even have a name
Who only needs to say one line, “Good night”
On a stage that can go on without me
“Boy D” standing in a corner
No one sees him
But to me, he’s a VIP
Yes, without me, the play cannot start
This world that can start without me
But this world cannot start without me, in my world

The seasons pass, it’s autumn now, it’s the long awaited sports festival
Now everyone get into your places, ready, set
