Concerning the fact that there weren’t many ghost shows on TV this year: -Ryo-

Hey, I’m guy who lost his phone for an entire week.

-Ryo-.

Since losing my phone, I’ve realized that people can’t live without their cell phone.
My summer memory.

Well, summer is coming to an end. Was everyone able to enjoy it?

I haven’t been able to shake this summer lethargy.
I wasn’t that pale to begin with, but I got a little tanner even though I didn’t go to the beach. My summer memory.

I secretly wanted to go glamping* this year, but summer ended before I got the chance. But now I have a goal for next year. My summer memory.

Also, as I’m writing this, I’m looking at someone walking by wearing a yukata and eating watermelon. So refined.

Please don’t think that I don’t have anything to write.
On the contrary, there are so many things that I’m actually troubled about it.

But well, that’s about it for my summer. Just the other day we announced our 2nd one-man.

What with us being in the middle of preparing for our first one-man there are so many things to look forward to, I’m a bit restless.

Even with summer ending, there are a lot of fun things waiting for me.
When the time comes, let’s have fun with no restraint.

And did you get a free copy of KAMIKAZE at our gig last week?
If you haven’t gotten it yet, you should definitely pick one up and listen to it.

There’s a bit of a gap till our next gig, but I’ll be sure to completely recover from this summer lethargy by then.

Alright, that’s about it for now.
Sorry I didn’t mention anything related to the title.

PS: Since I lost my phone, I don’t have any pictures of my summer memories.
I’ll gladly accept pictures of everyone’s summer memories to put in my phone instead.

Next time: Jellyfish Omi

*glamping is apparently a thing. It stands for “glamorous camping.” Basically for when you want to go camping, but don’t want to deal with all the yuck that comes with it. (source)

The title of Ryo’s blog is referring to the fact that in Japan, it is common to tell ghost stories in the summer. When you get scared, usually you get a chill so they use that to cool off in this ridiculous Japanese summer heat/humidity.

Hello.

I’m the “Red Mop,” Hiroki lol

First of all, yesterday we played in the “Jet Black Symphony” event at Shinjuku BLAZE!  Thanks to everyone that came! How was it seeing TRA TRA TRA on a big stage? I had a blast. It was a cool scene! These kinds of festival-type events are great. I hope we can take part in it again next year.

Seems like Obon season is already over

Is everyone having fun?
Did you already have fun?

I’ve been having a pretty good amount of fun.

I went to the beach, to the mountains, played some gigs.. I’ve been able to have a pretty fulfilling summer.

hiroki-summ-blog

This is the beach I just went to. Whoever knows where this is is amazing! lol

I always want to travel year-round so I really love going to the beach in the summer. I just don’t really like beaches that have a lot of people. I love swimming in a beautiful ocean with no people in sight.

I love swimming in this kind of place 🏊

I wanna make a video with all the TRA TRA TRA members swimming at the beach!😌Oh, but there’s someone who can’t swim at all… lol

 

There aren’t anymore gigs in August so for now I’m gonna put all my excitement and energy towards our 9/25 one-man!  Since it’s our first one-man, I definitely want to make it a success. I can’t help but feel really excited Start saving up your energy for it!

 

Alrighty, that’s about it for now

till next time!

 

PS. There’s gonna be a really happy announcement soon😌

 

HIROKI

 

Next time: Ryo

Good evening. It’s Omi, the guy who wants to wear the flashiest underwear in the world.

I’ve been eating a lot of noodles this week. I make somen noodles at home, eat ramen or tsukemen when I go out, they’re starting to look like shoelaces.

Actually, I was just eating tsukemen before this. At that tsukemen shop, they yell “iyoisho!” in a loud voice when the noodles are done boiling. Every single employee. It’s pretty powerful.

I think it’s a similar concept to the singing at Cold Stones.* They sing songs like “heigh-ho” and other Disney-ish songs so that customers standing in line can enjoy themselves. Every single employee.  Personally, I just want them to stop, but the concept of making the customers have fun is nice so it makes me think.

No matter what it is, it’s important to put life into it. Sometimes we also do a kind of cheer before a live, but it feels like it’s missing something so I wanna think of a cheer that flows better.

Well then, tomorrow we have a live at Ikebukuro Black Hole! We’ll do our best!

The next blog will be Red Mop.
See ya.

* you don’t tip in Japan so the staff at Cold Stones are just constantly singing. Sometimes they ask if it’s okay for them to sing to you lol

[Lyrics] TRA TRA TRA – メルト (Melt)

Artist: TRA TRA TRA
Single: メルト/We-KID
Lyrics: Ryo


Bound intimately by the sensation of these trembling hands
Crushed by solitude, I let out a laugh and wake up!
Good night, self

Sweet, sweet temptation
You see, idiots never learn
They fall, a wild frenzy into the night
Forced to dance the dance, into that trap

I can make it! mid night party

Destroy everything
Melted by those hands
Just over there
I laugh at the me that was

Exchange the fun of this night for my left arm
I don’t want to see any of that crap anymore
Just make it all disappear

The sweet, sweet cry of your voice
I want to gain that heat
Taint me more
I don’t care if it’s all a lie

I can make it! mid night party

Until the very end
Fake it, even if it’s just for show
Those tricks
Are improving more and more

let me bounce, let me bounce, forget everything
I pretend I could get away and laugh
When there’s really nothing there, I put a lid on it
Plus, I’m used to losing everything
I swore that there was no love,
but even so, if I catch a glimpse of it, I search for it
In reality this is where I cried
Just for now, I want to drown in this night

I don’t believe anyone or anything
Even though the solitude goes on filling the gaps
On these lonely nights
I want to sleep being loved by you

Original Lyrics:

震えだすこの手の感覚に心地よく締め付けられて
孤独に潰され笑い出す 目が覚めた!僕よ、おやすみ

甘い甘い誘惑に
バカの一つ覚えでさ
落ちる夜に乱れ狂う
踊らされたそこは罠

I can make it! mid night party

壊れていく
その手の中で溶かして
すぐそこには
あいつが笑う僕がいた

この夜に落ちる喜びと引き換えに与える左手
くだらない何も見たくない どうせなら今すぐ消して

甘い甘い声で鳴き
熱を帯びたそれが欲しい
もっと私を汚して
全部嘘でかまわない

I can make it! mid night party

どこまでも
気休めにでも騙して
駆け引きは
だいぶましにこなせてきた

let me bounce 飛ばせ すべてを忘れて
逃げれたフリして笑う
どうせここには何も無いと塞ぎ、そして
失うことになれてった
愛なんてどこにもないと誓った、それでも気がつけば探してしまうから
本当はここで泣いていた
今だけはこの夜に溺れていたいから

誰も何も信じない
孤独が隙間埋めていく
それでも寂しい夜は
あなたに愛され眠りたい
