just wanted to see how my colorings turned out on this pv

Let’s talk about something...

As we’re going into season two, I’ve been thinking a lot about the direction we’ll be headed in regarding the Agrestes. We’re going to find out more about Mama Agreste over the Christmas episode, which may or may not confirm some fan theories about what’s happened to her and whether or not she was the original holder of the peacock miraculous. Hopefully her disappearance will be explained, but in the meantime we have something else to think about.

Gabriel and Adrien.

There’s a lot of unknowns hanging around these two, and with the lack of information being given on Adrien specifically for the next season, there’s been quite a few theories emerging that something is going to happen to him. And, looking at his relationship with Gabriel and where last season left us with possible directions of what could happen between them, that’s starting to look like a pretty reasonable idea.

This isn’t one of my best work I ever did and I really didn’t feel like clean it up. So this is one of my most laziest ark work ever.

I was looking through my flies and then I found a sketch of Brigette with no lineart or coloring. I got really lazy to do any fixing or time cosuming work so  I decided to color it and leave it as it is. Surprisingly I like how it turn out.

Just let me know if you want to see a cleaner version, I might fix it in the future.

KiraFes 2016 Fanreport Day 1 (6/4)

I apologize for the delay! >___< I just had too many events going on within 3 weeks (3 events!) and I wasn’t able to recover since I had work as well. I’m pretty sure I forgot a lot of things already.. but I’ll just tell you what I remember! I’ll just give you a brief description (this is why I should not procrastinate on fanreports). I believe Emi ( @emii-suterii​ ) and Rizu ( @fugacissomnii​ ) wrote a fanreport for day 2 of KiraFes 2016 so you can check out Emi’s report HERE and Rizu’s report HERE for reference! Basically the same things happened but with differences of course! Sorry for any grammatical mistakes and such! And of course, you all know, I’m biased so…. XD

Japonism Concert Report (2015.11.28)

I was able to go to my first Arashi concert in Japan on Saturday, November 28, 2015, so I thought would share my experience and write up a concert report (as I did with 10sai and Blast in Hawaii!). Note that this is what I can recall from the concert and what was memorable to me so I apologize if leave anything out (and if there any spelling/grammar errors, I apologize as I wrote this on my phone instead of the usual computer).

The concert on November 28 was at Kyocera Dome in Osaka. I was able to go because my friend in Osaka is a fan club member and she hit for tickets! It started at 6 PM and we were rushing to get there on time but we got there with ten minutes to spare! We were in the upper section on the left side of the stage. We were afraid that we couldn’t see a thing in the seats we were given cause we were way off to the side but we could actually see a lot! The big screen was right next to us so we had to turn to the right every time to look at the screen but there were smaller screens placed around the dome. The main stage was hard to see but they were only there for a few songs so when they moved around the dome, we could see them clearly.
One thing we had to do before the show started was to activate our penlight on our seat. It was hard to understand but the lady behind us was kind enough to help us and said that we had to press the on switch and button below it at the same time next to the sensor on our seat. Then, the light would flash white and turn pink, so then we know it’s activated.

The opening started off with a banner that dropped down on the main stage that read “Japonism.” The screens then showed an anime opening with the guys animated. They were looking down at a city and then a sword appeared. Each guy was shown in some sort of scenery that is very “Japanese.” The background colors of the scenery matched the member’s colors (i.e. Sho in a temple surrounded by red maple trees, Aiba in a green bamboo forest, Jun looking down upon a town where all of the roofs are purple, etc.) Each member also had two characters- one is dressed up in traditional Japanese garb (i.e. samurai) while the other is dressed in modern clothing. After the opening ends, the banner drops down and the guys pop up on the main stage and start with the first song, “Sakura.”

I’ll just write down the set list and if I can recall anything, I’ll write it down next to the song:

-Sakura
-Miyabi-night
-Wild at Heart (started moving down the main stage to the moving stages)
-Troublemaker (from the moving stages, they moved to the back stage)
-Ao Zora no shita, kimi no tonari (at the start of this song, our penlights started flashing white and then it synchronized with the song! It was so cool!!! The whole dome was in sync with the song and it ended with the whole dome lit with blue lights, representing the “Ao Zora (blue sky)”
-Greetings-
Their usual greetings but our penlights automatically changed colors to match the color of the member who greeting us! Again, SO COOL


-Make a Wish (moved back to the main stage)
-MUSIC (Nino solo! This was one of my favorite solos of the night! Nino started tap dancing with a light stick (a cane that glowed), then the sound of his dancing changed to more of a video game like sound (reminded me of Mario) each time he is feet touched the ground, then it turned to a squeaky shoe kind of sound. Then, he sang his solo. During the instrumental part, he danced on the center stage (which is a square) and on the screen, you could see him from above, dancing and the graphics made it look like a dance dance revolution game! When he started singing again (during the “Music” part), he looked up at the camera and gave a wink while pointing the light stick at it. After his performance, he walked of the square but the noise accompanying his walking was the squeaky shoe sound. Such a cute solo!)
-Don’t You Love Me (MatsuJun solo! It started off with a video on the screen. MatsuJun is running from someone. Then, we see him lying down on a couch on the stage. He uses the main stage for his solo. There are a lot of acrobatics and during the instrumental part, he starts fighting the “bad guys” and running away, climbing up the stage. He lands up back on the couch. It was an interesting concept but I had no idea what was going on lol)
-In the Room (everyone is back on the main stage and sitting on chairs using Matsujun’s couch to fit in with the song. It reminded me of Face Down PV with the red background and chairs).
-Masquerade
-HappinessI couldn’t stop smiling as this is one of my favorite Arashi songs! They got on the floats and started going around the dome. Sho waved at our section!!!)
-Hadashi no Mirai (another one of my favorites!)
-GUTS (the other float came by our section! I believe, MatsuJun and Aiba waved at our section this time!!)
-Ai so Sakebe(all five are on the center stage dancing with a multi-colored heart background and it was just awesome since I love this song so much!!)

-MC-
Here’s what I can remember during the MC
-Sho commenting on how pumped up Aiba was during the concert since when they were dancing during Troublemaker, Aiba was next to him and was like, “WOOOO!!” During Ai wo Sakebe, he made the same noise “WOOOO!!” I love how Aiba was so excited!

-Sho said there are quite a few male fans in the crowd as it was a Saturday so the fathers taking their kids or the boyfriends taking their girlfriends, etc. so they conducted an experiment to see how many guys are in the audience by having only males shout out “Satoshi, Omedetou!!” since it was Ohno’s birthday two days before. Ohno chose what they got to say and wanted them to call him Satoshi instead of Ohno. Then, all of the female fans got to say “Oh-chan, otanjoubi omedetou!!” They commented that not everyone gets to have thousands of people shout out happy birthday to them so Ohno was happy.

-MatsuJun always says he will make the how many thousands of people in the dome happy so they commented on how if a fan came up to him in public, if Jun would make them happy there too. So Aiba enacted a scene where MatsuJun was walking down the street and Aiba was the fan.
Aiba: Ah, Excuse me!
Jun: Yeah?
Aiba: Are you Matsumoto Jun?
Jun: No, I’m not him.

Then, Ohno and Aiba tried the scene again.
Aiba: you’re Matsumoto Jun?
Jun: Yeah…
Ohno: do the thing you always do…
Jun: what?
Aiba: like, yeaaahh!!
Jun: yeah?
Ohno and Aiba: yeaaah!!
Jun: huh?
Aiba (suddenly turns angry): why aren’t you doing it?

It was pretty funny but again, I apologize for any mistakes as I can’t remember who said what perfectly.

-Then, they went back to the main stage and Jun went to go change. The rest of them did rock, paper, scissors and Ohno and Aiba won. They let Sho and Nino go backstage first. Sho asked if they were okay. Aiba asked Ohno if he had any projects to plug. Ohno said no. Aiba didn’t have anything either but he said that Nino had three projects coming up and announced them. He did an impression of Nino from one of the movies he has coming up (I’m not sure which one) but Ohno didn’t see it so he didn’t know what Aiba was talking about when he did the impression.
-Aiba told a riddle that I didn’t quite understand at first. He asked where the dog, Hachiko, came from? Ohno didn’t understand. He explained it was a direction and later told Ohno the answer was west as in nishi hachi (2x4 = 8; 2 = ni, 4 = shi, hachi = 8).
-Ohno told a riddle next. He asked what is a detective’s favorite food? He gave five choices: Sukiyaki, Yakitori, Sushi, Shabu Shabu, and Onigiri. Nino came back on stage saying Shabu Shabu. Sho said Sushi. Aiba said Sukiyaki but had Ohno repeat the choices. Ohno repeated the original five but then also added pumpkin. The answer was Sushi because “suiri.” Suiri means reasoning or mystery genre. It can also be a pun as su is vinegar in Japanese and iri is short for enter or contain so sushi has vinegar in it therefore it’s suiri. I did not get this at first so my friend had to explain it to me afterwards haha.
-Ohno and Aiba went to go change so Nino and Sho were talking on stage. I don’t remember what they said but I remember they were talking and MatsuJun was sitting on the stairs behind them. He chimed into their conversation and Sho and Nino were both shocked that he was there so Jun was like, “You guys didn’t know I was here?” Lol
-MC Finished-


Nihon Yoi Toko Maka Fushigi
-Kimi e no Omoi
-Rolling Days (Sho solo! He started on the main stage playing a drum. The juniors played drums as he sang. They all came to the center stage and Sho played his drum again with all of the juniors)
-Mr. Funk (Aiba solo! He came from our side so we saw him up close as he was hanging from a balloon that was covered in multi colored stars. Since he was high up, he was pretty close! He moved to the center stage and came down from the ballon. Towards the ending of the song, he changed shirts and rolled up his pants and powdered his feet as he was going to climb up the cloth rope that was hanging from the balloon. His new shirt was a white t-shirt that said “Mr. Funk.” He climbed up the rope with ease and hung down from it after the end of his song. Another one of my favorite solos!)
-FUNKY (how does everyone learn this dance so quickly?! I couldn’t do it but I tried haha. I was looking at the screen, following the tutorial of the dance that until midway into the song, I look to my left and Sho is right there on a rising stage! I didn’t notice he was there since I was concentrating on the dance haha!)
-Bolero (the rising stages came back down and they went back to the main stage)
-Akatsuki (Ohno solo! He started off wearing a traditional Kimono with a devil mask. He kept changing masks and kimonos so it was almost like a magic show. This went on for about 10-15 minutes before he performed the song. It was pretty cool and the only solo that remotely fit with the theme of “Japan” for Japonism)
-Japonesque (this is one of my favorite songs from the album! They wore multi-colored kimonos. The lights turned white and red, representing the Japanese flag. Fitting with the Japan theme, the beginning of the song featured shamisen and taiko drums)
-Kokoro no Sora
-Sunrise Nippon (Nino waved at our section on the float!)
-Oh Yeah! (FAVORITE SONG! Nino was on the rising stage near our section and he waved a lot at us!)
-Believe (the lights were so cool during this song!!! They were flashing blue and yellow in sync with the song! But it would have definitely caused some seizures cause the light changes were rapid! They moved to the back stage)

-Ending Remarks-
Each member of the group said their thank you’s. The only one I can remember is Aiba’s where he said that he was so happy to see everyone’s smiles and that everyone did the Funky dance really well that he was impressed. He said that we did the dance better than him haha.
The lights didn’t change during each person’s thank you’s, but everyone was changing the lights on their own to match the person speaking.
-last song: Bokura ga Tsunaide Iku (they walked back to the main stage and said their goodbyes after the song. The song ended with each section with the penlights colored with a member’s color. We were red!)

After they left, everyone kept shouting “Arashi! Arashi! Arashi!” for an encore. I was tired, so I sat down during the shouting for an encore haha

Encore:
-Yume ni Kakeru (They came back in the Japonism tour shirts and went back on the floats)
-Love so sweet (so glad they performed this song!! The next float passed by our section and all of them went to the main stage. I remember Ohno hugging Jun with his back facing him before they got off the float)
-A.RA.SHI (of course, they ended with the standard:) we all sang at the end with Ohno^^).

They introduced the juniors and the band. Then, ended with their usual “what’s our name?” And everyone shouts “ARASHI!!” Then, the silver tape streamers shoot out and float down. Of course, we were too far up that we didn’t get any:(Then, they exited the stage.
People were shouting ARASHI! but it was clearly the end of the concert so we just left.

I’m so happy that Japonism was my first Arashi con in Japan as the theme speaks for itself. I loved how they input Japanese aspects into the concert such as the use of traditional Japanese instruments, fashion, etc. It was an amazing concert that I will never forget! ありがとう、嵐♡

Thank you for reading!!!

Random thoughts that may or may not give some insight into the P5 cast

You know how some people were joking that Chair-kun looked like Adachi and Yu’s lovechild? Well, maybe not in appearance, but P5′s main character certainly shows traits shared by both of them.

Adachi and Yu were foils to each other. Extremely similar but ultimately made different decisions that put them on opposite ends of the spectrum.

The P5 kids are at the middle of that spectrum. Not quite corrupted enough, but still fairly jaded or beaten down. Pretty much on the way to catastrophe.

P5-kun’s got friends and companions like Yu, yes, and he gained the power of Persona and decided to go on a journey to change things during his high school years while Adachi’s school years were boring, lonely, and uneventful. 

He’s supposed to have a bright life full on potential in front of him… And yet, his attitudes and circumstances put him and his crew closer to Adachi’s mindset than to Yu’s.

To start off. (Heavy P3 and 4 spoilers ahead.)

Pierrot Upper summary

So with this book we have a confirmation of names whoohoo ヽ(´∀`)ノ

The Pierrot is called Pierre (ピエール)
The girl is called Maria (マリア)
The blond haired guy is called Noel (ノエル)

Maria could also be some variation of Mary as well but I guess I’ll stick to Maria since there’s an pretty distinct “ア” at the end? I don’t really know Japanese well so yeah;; (I totally saw her as a Mary though)
