Fall 2017 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
The MANGA.TOKYO staff had its share of summer. Now, all we wish is for the hot and humid weather to go away and give its place to the red and cool autumn.
The TV anime Show By Rock!! held a live event titled Tsurezure Naru Kurikuri Plasma Logic Girls Bands Festival 2017～We Are Totally in Love with PuruPuru♡～ and we have the show report just for you! The event was held on Sunday June 4 at the main hall in Wako Civic Cultural Center.
The cast members of the main four bands, Plasmagica, Criticrista, Tsurezure Naru Ayatsuri Mugenan, and Bud Virgin Logic, appeared on stage. The 14 cast members were: Eri Inagawa, Sumire Uesaka, Manami Numakura, Ayane Sakura, Rina Hidaka, Ai Kayano, Hiromi Igarashi, Rie Murakawa, Saori Hayami, Eriko Matsui, Megumi Han, Ruriko Noguchi, Aimi Tanaka, and Ibuki Kido. Chiaki Matsuzawa also appeared on stage as the MC. The show took place twice, a matinee show and an evening show. This report will cover the matinee show.
Following last year’s success, the second ‘Girls’ Bands Festival’ took place. The members of Bud Virgin Logic (Ruriko Noguchi, Aimi Tanaka, and Ibuki Kido), who joined the festival for the first time, performed as the opening act. They appeared on stage with each character’s instrument in their hands and performed their insert song from the anime series Show By Rock!!, ‘Solitude of Conviction’, which kicked off the show. They also performed a duet as Peipain and Hundreko, ‘Save a Master’ and ‘Goodnight Paranoia’, a song for the smartphone game. While they were performing ‘Senritsu -Schlehit Melodie-‘, the stage was filled with smoke and flashing red lights, which really got the audience going.
After the successful opening act, Criticrista (Rina Hidaka, Ai Kayano, Hiromi Igarashi, and Rie Murakawa) took to the stage. They sang ‘Yes! Idol♥Declaration’ and ‘Attention, Please!!’ When they sang ‘Colorful Snow Drop’ and ‘Shoot! Ba-ba-bang!’, they inflamed the audiences and didn’t let them rest even a second. The stage was brightened up by their big smiles and floating bubbles. The audiences cheered them on, shouting ‘you are the best!’
Following Criticrista was Tsurezure Naru Ayatsuri Mugenan (Saori Hayami, Eriko Matsui, Megumi Han) and the hall turned purple because of the fans’ glow sticks. While they were performing ‘Enchanting Dream Fireworks of a Night Journey’ and ‘Bloom, Fantasy’, each cast member asked audiences, ‘Are you having fun?’, which received enthusiastic responses from the audiences. They sang ‘Ryuki ～SASURAI～’ and ‘Song of Lanterns on the Sixteenth Night’, and then bowed deeply before leaving the stage. They presented an excellent show.
Last but not least Prasmagica (Eri Inagawa, Sumire Uesaka, and Ayane Sakura) appeared on stage. Towards the climax of the show, they performed ‘Labyrinth of DESTINY’ and ‘Plasma-ism’. They totally owned the stage, singing and dancing from side to side. The audience went wild. They showed a perfect synchronization between their singing and the audiences calls when performing ‘Falling Star Dreamline’ and ‘Rock your Heart!!’ and wrapped up the show in a lively atmosphere.
The call for the encore seemed never-ending. All the cast members came back on stage to answer the audiences’ enthusiastic call. They commented on the show, and then the last song ‘My Resolution ~Bonds to the Future~’ was sang by all 14 cast members. The audience joined in and the hall was filled with a feeling of unity.
At the end of the evening show, the words ‘Urgent Announcement! New Project Starting Up! Don’t Miss It’ suddenly appeared on screen and surprised everyone including the cast members! We’ll have to wait and see what happens.
The Blu-ray, DVD, and CD series of the TV anime Show By Rock!! are now on sale. ‘Show By Rock!! “3969” Summer Fes. 2017’, a live show to commemorate the 5th anniversary of ‘Show By Rock’, was announced to be held in five cities across Japan. We can’t take our eyes off the red-hot Show By Rock!!
