Standing Live Tour14
PULSE WRIGGLING TO DIMSCENE
2014.08.04 (Mon) Shinkiba Studio Coast
It wasn’t as crowded as I thought it would be. My ticket number was 1524 (second to last group to get in), but I was able to get to the front easily. I was near the front of the second section (the main floor was divided into two or three sections separated by some bars), but when it got closer to the live actually starting one of the staff asked the people in the front section to move forward so a bunch of space opened up and the girls in front of me let me through to the first section. I was able to get up pretty close to the stage on Aoi’s side.
The band opened with “The Invisible Wall”. I don’t really like when the first song is slow/a ballad. To me, the first song kind of sets the pace for the rest of the live. The initial image was pretty cool though. They had these giant candle-like things in the back that lit up with real fire before they started playing. It looked really cool. I think they used it a couple other times throughout the live.
After the first song they played “Hyena” (or at least I thought they played “Hyena,” but according to the set list going around tumblr they didn’t… I guess I have a horrible memory?? O_O) and “Cockroach” and I don’t remember what else. I suck at remembering the order of songs. Aoi looked almost bored for the first part of the live (I’m gonna blame it on the fact that they started with a slow song)

I think we’re on the same wavelength with our “childish conversations.” (RUKI)
It just felt like they really stuck to their own styles (Aki)
–When did the two of you meet?
RUKI: How many years has it been since we first met now?
Aki: I don’t really remember. But I’m pretty sure we met at Shibuya O-EAST’s Battle of the Bands. There were a lot of other bands there too. I had heard of the GazettE before that, but we never met. I thought you guys were really cool when I saw you perform.
RUKI: Don’t lie (laughs).
Aki: It’s true! (laughs) As a band, the GazettE is our senior by about a year or so Continue reading [Interview] VA ANOTHER SIDE: the GazettE RUKI’s Jack of All Trades
Ruki: Is this… the rainy season?☂

Ruki: This guy really likes games
Ruki: I don’t play games though. He let me play a little the other day, but it was impossible for me.
Ruki: Ahh, of course I’ve played games before, but just fighting types. Also stuff like Kamaitachi no Yoru.* Stuff that you don’t have to read a lot of instructions for.
Ruki: I don’t think I’ve ever even seen an actual PS3 (lol) RT @vixen0504: @Ruki: I know what you mean… My last game craze was about two years ago, but I don’t have any time to play anymore… My PS3 is covered in dust (I only use it for blue ray lol).
Ruki: Yeah… it’s pretty bad, huh (lol) At first I didn’t even know the difference between a DS and a PSP (´._.ˋ) RT@vixen0504: Seriously? (￣▽￣;)” @Ruki: I don’t think I’ve ever seen an actual PS3 (lol)***
*Kamaitachi no Yoru is the name of a game. wiki

Ruki: fighting spirit
Ruki: I guess I really worried you guys in Kanazawa, huh. I read all of your messages. Thank you so much! I’m able to become stronger because of you guys. I’m able to think “I want to be strong”
Ruki: Thinking about the past, you guys have always supported me in these types of difficult times. I felt a really deep connection with everyone in Kanazawa, something that you just can’t put it in words like “bonds” or “camaraderie.” I’m really thankful.
Ruki: Next is Hachioji. I’m gonna go at it with everything I’ve got so I want everyone to come and go crazy
Ruki: I’m really happy that I have such proud fans. Thank you.

Ruki: Everyone in Kanazawa. I’m really sorry. I’m sure there’s a lot of people who could only come today, people who went through a lot of trouble to come, as well as many people who came to see us for the first time. Due to various malfunctions we were forced to cut the songs where my voice didn’t come out properly. I’m really sorry for worrying you.
Ruki: I wasn’t able to say thank you to those of you who came out to see us, so allow me to say it here. Everyone, thank you so much

Ruki: Niigata is over! Niigata has a kind of a shy image, but everyone was really energetic today! It was nice seeing everyone’s ecstatic faces. See you again
Ruki: But the venue today really let me see everyone’s faces~ There were people in wheelchairs there, but they looked like they were enjoying themselves and really showed me how they felt. It made me happy. With each live, gotta leave behind something awesome for all of you!
Ruki: Supposed to be heading for Nagano now, but not making much progress with this snow…
Ruki: Really ~_~; RT @ ykhcinc: @ RUKItheGazettE What! Snow? Really???
Ruki: Yeah, it’s cold in Tokyo too, isn’t it ~_~; Take care not to catch a cold、Mr. President! RT @ takeshinakano: Really!! Snow in Nagano, huh… well, it’s cold in Tokyo too…
Ruki: good night.
