All right, here are my predictions. I have taken quite a lot of things into consideration while I was compiling this list. Since I am quite active in the Japanese twitter fandom I got to see many Kalafans post their votes so I am definitely gonna rely heavily on that. I’ve also taken into account that Kato Kanako (accordion) and Akagi
Rie (flute) will be supporting musicians so there have to be at least a couple of songs that require their instrumental accompaniment.
Here goes nothing 〈(•ˇ‿ˇ•)-→
I’ve tried to group them but I don’t think the songs will necessarily be
performed in this order. First we have their old-school songs and
various ballads. Then I included a section of up-beat songs (+mainstream anisongs) because I
know the girls like to perform those all in one go. Last but not least I
gathered all my picks that are usually sung towards the end of the main
concert/during the encore.
1. Oblivious: There’s NO way this song will not be performed. It’s their debut song and even if no one had voted for it, they would have still performed it. I have seen lots of Japanese Kalafans on twitter voting for it though so this song is pretty much a given. 2. ARIA:This is Hikaru’s baby. It’s the first song she recorded as part of Kalafina and it’s obvious that it means a lot to her. Every Hikaru fan I know voted for this and it would be a shame not to see it performed. 3.
君が光に変えて行く (Kimi ga Hikari ni Kaete Iku):You all know my undying love for this song. I just HAD to vote for it (and luckily I have seen lots of other people vote for it as well XD). This song alone is enough to make the entire concert perfect for me. 4. 傷跡 (Kizuato):An old-school song that rarely gets performed. I remember seeing a few votes here and there so I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up pretty high on the list. 5. serenato:This is most likely amongst Kalafina’s least performed songs which is probably why I have seen A TON of people voting for it. I am pretty sure this will get performed and I am definitely looking forward to it. 6. 春は黄金の夢の中 (Haru Wa Kogane no Yume no
Naka):Such a gorgeous ballad that doesn’t get the attention it deserves! Seems like many Kalafans share that sentiment because I have seen it appear a lot in various votes. 7.
屋根の向こうに (Yane no Mukou ni): Here’s one of my choices again. It’s not exactly fitting for this season but hell, I don’t care. I wanna hear this song live! And surprisingly I am not alone in this, many fans have cast a vote for it so I am quite optimistic. 8. 胸の行方 (Mune no Yukue):A staple song for all Keiko-fans. While we all know that I am a huge Cakey fan, I am not particularly fond of this song but I know that most other Keiko-fans are so this definitely got a ton of votes. 9. ring your
bell: This is not my favourite song and I don’t really want it to be performed (although I wouldn’t mind it THAT much if they opted for an acoustic version). The girls love it however and I think that’s one of the main reasons so many fans love it as well and why they decided to vote for it. 10.
❈ lirica / sandpiper:Okay, I am guessing I am cheating a little bit here but I am gonna put these two together anyways. “lirica” was third in my top-three list. Another rarely performed song and damn, I am dying to see it live. That Keiko bridge with her super deep voice will be the death of me for sure. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen too many votes for it, I don’t know why o.O But we shall see, I feel like most people tended to vote for rarer songs so there’s definitely a chance for “lirica”! The same applies to “sandpiper” actually! I cast my non-fan club member single vote for “sandpiper” but same as with “lirica” I haven’t seen many other people vote for it. Let’s keep our fingers crossed. 11. 花束 (Hanataba):A fan-favourite that got many votes as far as I could tell and it will give the accordion something to do. 12.
君の銀の庭 (Kimi no Gin no Niwa):Same reason as above.
13. Signal:Same reason as above. Also, this is where we transition into the up-beat block. (Secretly I am hoping this will not be performed T_T) 14. Progressive:I was surprised to see A LOT of people vote for this. I wasn’t aware this was such a popular song. But really, I am not complaining. It’s one of my faves and it’s totally underrated so I’d be super happy if it actually got performed. 15. また風が強くなった (Mata Kaze Ga Tsuyoku Natta):So old-school, so rarely performed these days. A true gem! Lots of long-time Kalafans have voted for this it seems and it would fit perfectly into this section. 16. 百火撩乱 (Hyakka Ryouran):While this song probably didn’t get many votes, it’s still their most recent release so chances are high this will be on the setlist. Plus, we need something for Akagi Rie!!! 17. One Light:I have seen many Hikaru-fans vote for this and I think it is one of Kalafina’s most popular anisongs these days and it’s also among their best mood makers. 18. 音楽 (Ongaku):I have actually not seen a lot of votes for it but since it is such a staple Kalafina song, I’d be surprised if they didn’t perform it.
19. 光の旋律 (Hikari no Senritsu):Another staple Kalasong that received many votes and it once again gives Akagi Rie the opportunity to shine. 20. Symphonia:We need at least ONE Rekishi Hiwa Historia song and I really hope it’s this one (please don’t perform “storia”! It’s not like I don’t like this song but it has just been performed too many times. Plus, I have already seen that one live but I have never seen “symphonia” and since it’s among my all-time faves I’d really love to see it on the setlist). Also, another song for Akagi Rie! 21. into the world:I am not sure about this one. I have seen a handful of votes for it but not TOO many. However, this song obviously means a lot to the girls, they always get so emotional talking about it. Plus, I think the girls would like to maintain a balance between old and new songs so a more recent song like this would fit perfectly into this setlist. 22. アレルヤ (Alleluia):THE Cakey song. Every respectable Keiko-fan (except me :P) voted for this one, I have no doubt it will be performed! 23. Sprinter:Do I even have to give a reason for putting this on my list? We all know it’s not my fave but even I wouldn’t wanna miss this song during their 10th Anniversary LIVE!
Predictions for their after-live announcement: I don’t think it will be an album (unless it’s another live compilation or something - for which I would be grateful). Yuki Kajiura has been taking a break during the second half of 2017 and she mentioned that she would be taking it easy during the first few months of 2018 as well. I doubt she will be creating an album with the girls any time soon. Now I really hope the rumour about an autumn world tour turns out to be true. That would be so awesome! For Kalafina’s sake, I hope they won’t announce any tours for the spring time because they are in dire need of a break.

Everyone’s saying that this scene destroyed Vegeta’s badass Reputation
Vegeta was faced with an opponent he knew he had no chance of beating. So, rather than fight and risk getting his family hurt or the planet destroyed, he puts his pride aside and appeases Bills, referring to him as Bills-Sama (An honorific used to refer to someone above oneself, or that one has great respect for.)
Later, when Bills decides, due to the Itch of being shot, to destroy the planet, Vegeta fucking Throws his pride away completely. Not even setting it aside. He just completely forgets it for one moment to calm Bills Down.
He sacrifices the one thing he’s held above all else to protect his friends, his family, and the planet he’s come to call home
