My first Tenimyu!  
Wow. Where do I begin?

It's been a pretty long day. I got up at eight, caught a train to Odaiba at ten, and arrived about 11.30am. The first thing I did was join the line for Tenimyu goods. It took ages...! I was right near the front of the queue and everyone around me was getting very nervous as it got closer to the starting time. Some were quite upset at the staff.

Eventually, with ten minutes to go, I couldn't wait any longer. I abandoned the queue, as a handful of other people had too. Sad, but it would be kind of stupid to miss the performance because I was buying merchandise for it!

When I got into the main area, there was a goods booth there too! But I couldn't use it, because I only had ten minutes. WHY the staff upstairs didn't tell us that, I've no idea.

Anyway... the performance! Might be a few inaccuracies since I'm kinda tired now and have been on my feet all day. But this was so cool!

  • If you want to see Atobe don tight leather trousers and dance like a porn star, this is definitely the myu for you!
  • Hell, if you want to see all of Hyoutei dance like porn stars, this is also the myu for you! They even had porn-star pink lighting.
  • I really liked Good Combination. That was pretty cool.
  • Was that Kikumaru with rollers in his hair? And Tezuka fishing!? *dies*
  • Atobe? He was *this far* from Tezuka's lips. I'd say they were a couple of millimetres from a kiss. The audience reaction was so loud, I bet you could've heard us in Oosaka!
  • Do Your Best was rapped. And Atobe was doing hand movements...!
  • WHY am I talking about Atobe so much?? I fear Katou-san has drawn me over to the dark side.
  • The cast spent most of their time in "street clothes". And after the first song(?) wearing them, Hyoutei gather round and compliment each other on how sexy/cute each other look. I'm not kidding.
  • Inui learned how to dress from Mizuki.
  • Ueshima-san (Nanjirou) had a ballet solo with a tennis racket. And WOW, he was fantastic.
  • Tezuka was incredibly bouncy... for Tezuka. At one point, he did this impression of...I think it was Chibi Maruko-chan. But it was to defeat Hyoutei, so completely understandable.
  • Much of the myu is devoted to speeches from the graduating cast -- almost half an hour, I think. The announcer commented they looked like they were ready for a wedding, since they were all dressed in white tuxedos with pale blue bowties and cummerbunds. I think Hotta-san was either crying or pretending to cry... a lot of cast seemed close to it.
  • I really want to list every little 'accidental touch' and 'hand casually resting on each other' and 'outright glomp' moment the cast had, but there were really too many. Squees every time though, of course.
  • During one of the slower songs, they played clips from their auditions... it was a pretty sad song and everyone (the audience)seemed a lot quieter.
  • Araki-san is sex. I wanted his, uh, photoset.
  • Araki-san's photoset sold out...!?

    And afterwards, I went to demachi... EEEE! Lots more waiting involved too, though, of course.

    Must buy the DVD. Do they use a combination of performances for them, or do they just choose the best? I would love it if even a little of what I saw made it onto the DVD.

    Did I pimp dilettantka's community? No?

    So far I've only seen the first Myu and HyouteiMyu but I know I'll have to watch this one too! Kazu chan is LUVVVVV! X.DDDD I wanna see him do those hand movements, LoL. Thanks for the report~
    Williamgenkischuldich on 29th March 2006 02:26 (UTC)
    It's definitely worth it! And amazingly gay, basically. Ah... it was so awesome!
    Mewgokumew2 on 29th March 2006 11:11 (UTC)

    Don't fight it. You know it makes sense...

    B-Bu-But...! Mind you, I like a lot of Tenimyu characters that I don't like in the anime/manga. I've thought that every actor who's ever played Ryouma was absolutely adorable, for example!

    I'm so glad you had a great time, especially given what you went through to get tickets!
    Williamgenkischuldich on 29th March 2006 02:32 (UTC)
    Thanks! Next time I'm making bids immediately after the pre-sale though! :P

    Isn't live Tenimyu THE BEST?!!!! ^o^ I can't wait for today's last show!!!!!!!!!

    Some of your details are a little different from my performance (like there was no Adachi with rollers in his hair!!). Wow, I can't wait to see more!! ^^

    For the DVD, they always list the day, so it'll definitely be all from the same day if not the same performance. But I think that, really, they're going to use the last show since it's a graduation and for the past 2 graduations, they used the last show. Since that's the end, after all, it only fits. ^^

    Lucky! I'm feeling a bit down after all the crack yesterday. It's like coming home from a convention, or something.

    Yeah, I figured they would use mostly final show footage. But it would be really cool if they showed some of the stuff that I saw!

    Hope you enjoyed today's performance!

    Williamgenkischuldich on 30th March 2006 23:12 (UTC)
    Yeah, I did! Although having read reports of the final showing, I almost wish I'd spent just a little more money on Yahoo!Auctions and gone for the final show... but I'm VERY happy with what I saw. :)

    I'm totally buying the DVD!
