May the happiness visit at everyday of my future!

A.B.C-Z 5周年ツアーお疲れ様でした。

書いておかないといけない気がするから書きます。

 

5周年ツアーお疲れ様でした。久しぶりに地方にも行けてよかったです。私がというよりも彼らが。やっぱりその土地に行っても人が見に来てくれなかったら成立しない世界だものね。一歩ずつではあるけれども知名度は5年前よりもあがってきたのかな。だとしたら、それを彼らが実感できていたら、とても嬉しいなと思います。

 

 

ここから先は気持ち悪いおたくのただの感想です。

ツアーからという訳ではなかった(と思う)けれど、五関さんは今年に入って少し雰囲気が変わった気がします。

今までどこか掴めないふわふわとした感じがあった(このあたりが所謂ミステリアスだと呼ばれている部分かもしれない)けれど、最近の五関さんからはそのミステリアスさがだいぶ消えたような気がしています。私、現場で何も連絡していないのにほぼほぼ会う同担の友人がいるのだけれど、同じこと言ってたなあ。

なんだろう、変な言い方になるけれど、憑き物が取れたみたい。すごく自然で優しいふわふわとした感じを感じるんです。今すごく楽しいな、とか、素直な感情が伝わってくるというか。なんだかちょっと人間らしくなった?(笑)感情が表に出やすくなったのかなあ。

 

今回のツアーのソロがガチガチにかっこいいものではなくて明るいかっこよさだったのも私はとても嬉しかったです。今までだって好きだったけど、ちょっと指向を変えてくれてのもよかったなって。まあ、羽根背負ってる五関さん見た時に「天使~!いや堕天使~!この世に舞い降りてる!!!好きしかない!!!」みたいなことになったのは置いておきますが。

ホールバージョンのソロの時、バックにメンバー四人についてもらうという選択をしたのは誰の意見なんだろうか。ホール初日の名古屋、塚田くんが出てきた瞬間にどよめく会場と、その歓声にしてやったりの笑みを浮かべた五関さんにはやっぱり勝てないなあと改めて思ったし、これでこそ自担だよ…!と誇らしくもなりました。誇れる人で居続けてくれるってすごい、本当に。ありがとう。

 

 

で、やっぱりツアーラストの仙台のことを書いておかないといけないかなと思います。

前提として、私は映像を流した賛否については話すつもりはないですし、あれを恥ずかしい映像と呼んだことに対して議論する気もありません。そういうのは他所でどうぞ。

 

去年の忘年会で五関さんが泣いた話。レギュラー番組で少し話があがったり、塚田くんのサタジャニでもその話をされたりしていたあの話(仙台当日、塚ちゃんは「映像録ったの僕じゃないよ!」とめちゃくちゃ否定していたけれど、サタジャニでペラっていた。爪が甘いところがさすが塚ちゃん。笑)

本音を聞き出そうとしたメンバー、五関さんが泣きながら「この5人でやっていきたいんだよ俺は」と言ったこと、そんな五関さんのことをがっちりホールドしている戸塚くん、映像を見終わった後に「全然恥ずかしくないじゃん!」「むしろいいやつじゃん!」と言い合うメンバー、照れながら「いいやつでしょ」となる五関さん。

 

純粋に、いいグループになったなあと思ったし、いいグループを好きになったなあと思えた瞬間でした。

そして五関さんに対しても、この人のことを応援してきて本当によかったなと思えた瞬間でした。

 

めちゃくちゃネガティブな話をします。

結構五関様だなんだと言ってくれる人も多いけど、人によっては、「外仕事もロクに取ってこないお荷物」って思ってる人もいることは理解していて、そのひとがそんなこと言っても「その立場で何を言ってんだよ」とか「グループなくなったら仕事ないしね」と思ってる人もいると思っていて。それはもう仕方ないことなんだけど。

私は本当に素直に、四人とグループのことを大好きな五関さんの気持ちが知れてよかったし、あぁ、この人はこの四人に囲まれてA.B.C-Zというグループにいて、そんな今が凄く幸せなんだろうなって思えたことが嬉しかった。人ってなかなかそう思えるものに出会えないと思うんです。この人たちと仕事ができている今が本当にすごく楽しくて嬉しいって感覚、正直私はまだないかなあと思っていて。けれども五関さんはそういう人たちに出会って、一緒にグループとして成長してきてるって、そう思ったらすごく嬉しかった。

 

映像の後にずっとLOVEを歌った際、塚ちゃんが大サビ前の「ずっと一緒だよー!」を叫びながら五関さんをぎゅっと抱き締めてくれたこと、涙で霞んではっきり見えてなかったけれども本当に嬉しかった。

応援してきた人が大切なものを実感して楽しそうに、嬉しそうにしているのがこんなにも幸せなことだとは思わなかったです。

 

もしかしたらここ最近の憑き物が取れたように幸せそうに見えていた五関さんの理由は、四人とA.B.C-Zのことが本当に好きだって実感したところからきているのかなと思ったら後々ちょっとすっきりしました。

 

りょうちゃんや河合くんもずっと一緒にいるよと言ってくれた。この先ずっと5人で欠けずに居てくれる保証なんてないことはわかっているんだけれど、あんなに口々に言われたらちょっとくらい信じてみようかな、という気持ちになりました。

何よりも、それが応援している人の望みであるならば、その人が「やっぱり無理」って言わない限りは信じてみようかなと思います。

 

ずっとずっとこの幸せが続きますように。

 

 

おめでとうとありがとう

 

本来ならこのブログは英語で書くことの練習用に使っているのですが、どうしても今日という日に更新をしたかったので書いています。練習用は後日下書きにでも入れます。

 

A.B.C-Z、5周年おめでとう。

 

2011年12月9日、思いがけずに発表されたデビュー。そして2012年2月1日のデビュー日。

あの頃、5周年をこんな気持ちで迎えるとは思っていませんでした。

もともと飽き性な私はだいたい3年くらいで、(それ自体を嫌いになることはないけれど)一番の楽しみを他に見つけてしまうのです。

なのであの頃も、おめでとうという気持ちで満ち溢れていたものの、心のどこかで「私はそのうち彼らに飽きてしまうんだろうなぁ」と思っていました。

それが1年経ち2年経ち、あれよあれよという間に5周年。不思議なもので、飽きる気配がありません。

色々あったけれど、A.B.C-Z本人たちへの愛情と希望と、変な話ですけど夢は、未だに5年前と同じように持っています。

飽き性の私が五関さんを生で見て担降りしてからデビューまで約3年ちょっと、そしてそれから5年も経ってしまったことに正直自分が一番びっくりしています。

一度も飽きさせてくれなかった五関晃一という人と、そんな彼が愛してやまないA.B.C-Zというグループが、本当に好きだなと改めて思っています。

言葉にするとすごく恥ずかしくて痛めですけど、本当に純粋に、この5人が好きです。

 

だからこそ幸せになってほしいなって。

 

本人たちが望むような未来を見せてあげられたら、私の夢も終わるのかなと思っています。

でもきっと、彼らは次から次に新しい未来を見つけてこれからも進んでいくから、私の夢は終わらないんだろうなとも思っています。

 

ずっと応援させてくれたA.B.C-Zに、たくさんのおめでとうとありがとう。

そしてこれからもよろしくね。

Thinking about summer

 

 
In my Johnny's fan life, summer is the special season in a year.  The beginning happen, I have thought is since July 23rd, 2011.
 
I called this year’s summer is the period not to see a point. When it is now, it might a funny episode, but that time, I couldn’t laugh.
On July 23rd, 2011, the accident happened in Aoyama theatre. There was playing “PLAY ZONE 2011 SONG&DANCE”, the accident happened at one of the songs in the second scene “A.B.C-Z”, performed by A.B.C-Z.
This song’s performance  used stage devise “trap room” (in Japanese says “Naraku”).  The end of this song, they jumped into the trap room and disappeared on the main stage.
In July 23rd, they also performed this song and jumped into the trap room. Then, Fumito injured his left leg. He’d never returned on stage that day. And the next day, the announcement that he injured his leg and he stopped performing this show was told us.
 
That time, people around them were changing their situation.  I felt it was the time of the game for them. But this accident robbed the opportunity for them to perform all members.
I was so shocked that I fell into the dark.
I had a special thought to PLAY ZONE 2011. In this show, A.B.C-Z’s members, Fumito and Koichi, were given the song “Kanpeki”. They took charge of main part this song, when I watched this song first time I moved to their position. And I love their combination, symmetry, so I was glad to see it. Fortunately, I watched this song on July 8th, the first day of this year’s PLAY ZONE, but I never watched it this summer.
In addition, the next day that this accident happened was the recording day on DVD.
The next day, on July 24th, Tomoyuki Yara performed in place of Fumito. He has little time to memorize this song, but his quality was so great. I’ve been no match for him. It looked like his song at the outset.
I thought it was great and moved, but I wanted to watch “Fumito and Koichi’s Kanpeki” in my heart. I didn’t know what to say.
 
After a while, Fumito’s injury cured, and they held the first concert in Yoyogi gymnastic. And then, they debuted. So that is a good memory now, but I couldn’t laugh at that time.
 
Actually, I dislike A.B.C-Z and summer combination.

In 2010, Fumito injured his leg. But it was not severe, so he came back the stage four days later. In 2011 as above. The next year in 2012, Tsukachan injured his leg. Anyways, I have the worthest impression to their summer. (In 2014 and 2015, the stage that was not good impression played, but I will tell you this story some other time.)

 
This summer, in July 24th, A.B.C-Z’s fan club started.
In fact, I didn't expect it. So I was glad to hear that.
And new A.B.C-Z's fan getting in love about three years ago are easy to get their concert and stage tickets.In the movie which is watched in Family Club, they seem to be pleased. So I want to see it early.
Then, I was able to come to like A.B.C-Z and summer cobbination. 
Thank you, conglatulation and please keep in touch!

Our important and fabulous center

 
 
In this article, I'd like to introduce A. B. C-Z's members.
I wrote about Koichi Goseki, my favorite talent, but I had never written about another
members.

So, I'll introduce them to you in turn!

The first person I'd like to introduce is Ryosuke Hashimoto.
He'll be 23 years old on July 15th. He is the center of their group. He is the youngest all of them and his member color is red.
 
He hates to lose. When he joined their former group,"A. B. C.", people who were fans
of "A. B. C." were very strict with him. Because his dance was not so well and he was thought that he took many song parts of them.
But he was a hard worker and never gave up. He was recognized little by little. 
The former group," A. B. C.", they could not think they can debut. It was also talked from themselves recently.
But when Ryosuke took part in them, they combined for growing him, not only his dance skill and acrobat skill but also the one excellent person. It brought them up that there was him. I think it was one of the factor to lead to their debut.
So, nowadays, I think he is the most important person when I tell you about their group.

He has many charm points. Especially his song skill is the greatest weapon, I think. He likes singing. His voice is easy to hear. It's so cozy. And sometimes it gives us many impression. For example, it's sexy, cute, cool, and strong.
The other points, he is very friendly to all people around him. He is tall, sexy and cool,
but his character is very cute and a little clumsy! The place gets brighter when he is there.

When he joined this group, he was only 15 years old. He was a mere boy at that time.
But now, he has become an excellent gentleman, I think.
He likes performing as well as singing, he always says. I hope that he will become more fantastic person and get more success!
 

20160403 Waive 「FINAL DISTORTION」


I could see again what I want to see.
I could remember what I like.
Their music and of course they are not change.
They remain the other day.
Thank you for you to stand the stage again.
Thank you for you to say "We are Waive!"

I was really happy.
Thank you Waive.

Heaviness of one Japanese fan



ジャニヲタ英語部speaking第13回&writing第4回のお知らせ - 咲き誇れ。



“If you wear the blue clothes, unless you have a Japanese fan of others, I think you are my fan.”


My favorite talent, Koichi Goseki, told us in the interview before. So, I often wear a blue clothes or have a blue accessory when I go to their concert. It does not to appeal to myself, it is to tell him his fan (in the case of me) is here, and the people who cheer him are here.

Japanese fan (in Japanese say UCHIWA) is important in Johnny’s concert. One of the roles is to get fan service for talents. But I think UCHIWA is the tool to tell them for their fans are here.

 

About six years ago, I saw one boy. His name is Ryo Hashimoto. Maybe he was nine or ten years old then. He was in the group “Snow Prince a chorus “. He was so cute, so I thought I’ve cheered for him.

The growth of boys is very fast. Of course he is. He stood many stages and concerts, and had many experiences. He grew up steadily. When I saw him the first time, he was a little boy. But he has become an adult little by little.

 

I have decided UCHIWA that I have are only my present favorite talent’s and previous favorite talent’s. So I haven’t had other people’s it, no matter how I get good seats. This is my rule.

But I have also decided if Ryo becomes a high school student, I would hold his UCHIWA. It is to tell him thanks of having worked hard so far.

Perhaps, what I think will not be understandable. The one says, “You like him, so you should become a fan for him”, the other says, “You are wrong to hold UCHIWA that not your best talent.” The sense of value is each person. There’s nothing you can do about that. But I want to tell him appreciate.

 

My friend got tickets for Sexy Zone Concert in this spring.

I wish he would join this concert. But I don’t know whether he joins it or not. So I made his UCHIWA to hold my wish and went to the concert.

The concert started. Some song had been finished, Ryo appeared on the stage.

At last, I could hold his UCHIWA on his performing stage.

I was glad to see him and to hold it. I had not thought I was so happy to hold UCHIWA. What he might think was one of his UCHIWA, but what I thought was very important it.

His performance was very cool. He looked like very fun.

I was so moved that I saw his performance. And to tell him thanks of having worked hard so far. It was the first experience for me. Maybe I will remain this experience and his performance in the future.

 

This time, I really felt the heaviness of one UCHIWA.

I want to remember it from now on.

Happy graduation

This article is written to participate in the below activity.

http://kotonoha13.hatenablog.com/entry/2016/02/27/125512

 

The magazine “Da Vinci” was published on March 5th. The current number includes two special issues, one is Arisugawa Arisu, who is author renowned in the field of mystery novels, and the other is A.B.C-Z, who are my favorite group.

 

If anything I have the serious image to “Da Vinci”. Of course, it is when I compare the magazine, for example: about Japanese idols, and about health and fashion of women,   appeared them usually.

One of the members, Shota Totsuka, had a serial publication in “Da Vinci”, was about one year and a half ago. He is a reader, and he also is the fan of Kotaro Isaka. This matter is famous in their group’s fans. And their fans have known he likes to write articles and story. But we didn’t think, at least I didn’t think, he has a serial publication in “Da Vinci” because they were obscure Japanese idol. He wrote about him and themselves deeply that they never talked to the magazines of appeared them usually in this serial publication. So, I am very glad to tell to give him opportunities to write about specific themes.

 

This issue was planned to graduate planning to end of his serial publications. I’m glad of even this. In addition, this month’s number was covered by A.B.C-Z! It is so honorable. I really appreciate to editors of this magazine to plan their special issue and to be covered it by them.

 

Because I want you to take this magazine, so I can’t write about details in this issue. But outlines of this special issue are followed:

 

・Background of group

・Messages from famous people who are associated with them

・Messages from their fans ( This message was gathered from an online questionnaire.)

・Interview about the play “ Netorare-Sosuke” and “ Coinlocker-babies”

・Personal interviews

・The stage report of “Johnny’s world” (They appeared this stage until January 2016)

・The novel “ A.B.C-Z

・Talk of all the members

 

I think you understand these articles are very heavy! These articles were written through 26 pages. I’m so happy about it.

Many messages from famous people gives readers addiction to them, I think.

And a few messages, I don’t read it without my tear. My recommend messages are from Taku Suzuki (He is a master of ceremonies of their TV program) and Kiyoshi Yamamoto (He is a supervision of their TV drama). This two person’s message includes a lot of nice words. When I read them, I was really happy. I don’t know what I tell the gratitude to them.

 

Secondly, a personal interview is really interested. Normally, they appear magazines which treat Japanese idols, health, fashion, and so on. The most of issues dealt with there are casual. Deep and serious contents are not talked into it. I think it’s because these magazine’s many readers are teenagers, students, and young women. So they may not like deep and serious talk.

When I read Koichi’s personal interview, I thought a lot of things. In part of them include what I thought of him until then, and what I hope he is able to be a good talent in the future. All of the members talked about unusual talks. These are deep and serious. Personal interviews they talked are deeper than ordinary one. If you have an opportunity, I really want you to read them.

 

Finally, I really appreciate Kazushige Abe, who wrote the novel “A.B.C-Z”. Mr. Abe is a famous author won the award of Akutagawa. It is also honorable to be written the novel by Mr. Abe. I hope this novel will be a movie sometimes. Of course, just now is OK! I think he doesn’t know them well, but its novel was so great! Their character that in the novel suits all of member’s one each other. If they become a famous Japanese idol group in the future, I want to see this movie. Then, I want to supervise this movie is Mr. Yamamoto.

 

I don’t write all my impressions of this magazine “Da Vinci”. There are a lot of addictions for them from many people. What I thought is they are loved many people when I read it. I wrote Koichi’s “Aisare ryoku” at one month ago, but other members also have this power. They are loved by many people now, but if they become more famous and popular, what will happen? I look forward to seeing it.

 

You can read the editor’s note to move below link.

I want you to read it and to get this magazine.

If so, I think you can feel a lot of their fascinations!
