Minna, thank you for your patience! Here is our report of the Hachioji show. It’s a long one though, so you’ve been warned~ Hope you guys enjoy ^^ Please refer to this picture every time you see citations like (*1), (*2), etc
From the time we woke up and headed off to Hachioji, to the last speech that Takki gave before we all left Olympus Hall… Everything just felt so “special” throughout the entire day. Afterall, it’s very rare for us to be in Hachioji with the Hachioji prince himself ne!
Perhaps it’s due to the fact that it was a small venue… or that a majority of the people there were diehard Takki fans… But whatever it was, you could feel a strong sense of unity or “一体感” inside the hall. Normally, the audience would have an afternoon show to warm up before the evening show (which is usually more high). But this time, there was only one show, so it was really a “now or never” kind of feeling. And honestly, I have never seen such a loud and hyper crowd before!!! We really danced, laughed and screamed like crazy lol
That’s why we’re really glad Jticket International opened up for us. Otherwise, we probably wouldn’t have been able to attend this show without shelling out a huge fortune. Even the Japanese fans had a tough time getting tickets ne… According to newspaper reports, the JFC received 45,000 applications for this show. Only 2,000 people actually made it into Olympus Hall. So in that sense, we were really one of the lucky ones ne~
