Chika and Chihiro’s surprise appearance at Especia’s final Osaka concert + SETLIST

Fans at Especia’s final Osaka concert at Misono universe witnessed an unforgettable treat with former members Chika Sannomiya and Chihiro Mise making an impromptu reunion with the group onstage.

As Especia performed YA・ME・TE! for three consecutive times during the encore, Chika and Chihiro crowd surfed their way onto the stage and performed with the current line-up, complete with choreography. A five-membered Especia was formed for the first time in more than a year!

Prior to the beginning of the concert, guests had spotted Chika and Chihiro among the crowd but were only hopeful for their return to the stage.

An additional concert highlight included Haruka’s emotional MC. Haruka tearfully plead, “Humans are living beings who eventually forget. Someday you will all forget about Especia. But whenever you see a palm tree, I want you all to remember us; remember Especia.”

Videos of the performance have yet to surface.

You can call it poetry...

I’m often asked to write poetry about this or that, to write according to a prompt. This for me is pure anguish to both write and to read, as they often feel so empty. When I write my own words they are innate, and surface without coaxing. They overflow from remnants of unhealed wounds, from an amazing view I’ve witnessed, an argument, a song, a photo, a reunion, the presence of a loved one, the lack of presence of a loved one. Simply anything that conjures overwhelming emotions that fill my core and then overflow into words. It’s my ability to empathize in the human condition and the complexity of its nature, as I remind myself of my own diverse humanity. My own frailty and strength. When finally spilled onto a page, it is not art to me, nor is it refined. These words are the broken pieces of a soul that mend together in an attempt to create something out of nothing. I guess you can call it poetry. These words may appear beautiful, or even seem terrifying, while sometimes…

they simply remain nothing at all.

you can call it poetry if you like
