#Road2TIF2017 Wrap Up

Posted: July 17, 2017 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

Time for more #TIF2017 postwhore, and this one might be the last blog update before i depart to japan in less than 2 weeks time. In this update, we finally have more news about “TGIF2017“, a new added “Docomo 5G Stage” to the venue lists, and also the “Timetable” for TIF2017. Yay ! Although, the buppan / greetings area schedule is not out yet so we still have to wait for that xD ๐Ÿ˜€




New “Docomo” Stage

If this year TIF wasn’t big enough already, they decided to add another stage called the “Docomo / 5G” stage which i think, is located inside the Fuji TV headquarters. Now, im not sure how this stage will looks like as this is an entire new stage (never seen before in TIF) but seeing from the distance from other stages…man that is far. As far as the Dream Stage at least. Imagine walking between this stages to the Smile Garden… That would take forever!!! (under the summer heat too !) ๐Ÿ˜›

So im not sure about this particular stage in fact i might never see this stage at all this year. But let’s just see how it goes eh.




TGIF2017 Line Ups

They just added a line up for this year “TGIF2017“, not sure if the list is final or what, but all i can say its not better or not looking as great as the previous year. haha. The usual names is there again (like Jun Amaki) and some Festive members. But i do hope they update the line ups with more Gravure models though. 1000 yen cheki with gravure models is always worth it.



48/46G Addition to the TIF2017

Now we know Sasshi is the chairman / commitee for TIF2017 this year, but i wonder if she has something to do with the addition of sooo many 48 groups appearing in this year TIF2017. I mean, this year we have HKT48, SKE48, NGT48, AKB48 16ๆœŸ็ ”็ฉถ็”Ÿ, and also AKB48 Team 8. If that isn’t enough, there’s also Keya46 and Nogiz46 (although some 3rd gen members or what, i dont know cuz i dont follow 48/46G anymore) ๐Ÿ˜›


Now because of these groups, i can safely say that this year TIF will be packed as hell ! ๐Ÿ™ Since there are so many 48 groups in between the stages, you need to plan your timetable carefully as some stages with 48G will definitely packed as hell and you might need to come earlier for that… With all said and done…well…lets just avoid seeing these groups (for me anyway lol) and pray they didnt mess up my TIF Timetable schedule during the actual day haha

Btw, with these announcements, i think NMB48 is the only 48 group in japan so far that hasn’t performed in TIF yet. (and also the main senbatsu of AKB48G).




TIF2017 Timetable

This year TIF2017 Timetables for the performances is out ! Time to start planning your TIF schedule !!! or not…because the Buppan / Greetings area schedule isn’t out yet ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ But either way, i am glad that the timetable is out already, this way i can plan my moves earlier. Even though i still need to prepare some time slots for Buppan in the future.

Btw i also already made Version 0.000000000001 of my TIF2017 schedules lol. For my early “draft” though, i only included 3 of my main groups (that i really wanted to see) in this TIF. That is Babyraids Japan, Maneki Kecak and Kamiyado

So i only made an early draft schedule consisting this group. For the rest…i will wait for the buppan schedule first LOL ๐Ÿ˜›




My TIf2017 “Draft” Schedule v.00000000001 LOL


As you can see, it’s very simple but of course it’s not my final draft of schedules LOL ๐Ÿ˜€ I have also mentioned on my previous blog post that Passpo has dropped in my order list of my “fave idol groups”. ๐Ÿ˜› I’ve been seeing them as my Number 1 “priority” ever since the first TIF i went in 2012, so that is already 5 years in a row now…even last year in 2016, even though my interest to them has gone down alot, i still kept on seeing them somehow (lol) in most of the stages they performed in. For this year after taking a quick glance at the current timetable….well. I probably only can see them a few times if i am lucky…haha.

Other groups i want to see also such as Idol Streets GEM and Cheeky Parade as usual. Also the “Wack” groups such as BiS/BiSH etc etc. Some newer groups like Appare! Harajuku and Kamonegi!! kinda interest me as well so lets hope i can find some time slots to see them for few times. This year i might not see X21 though, and that also depends if Miyu Yoshimoto decided to appear for this year TIF or not (since she graduating soon).

And also, there is no Passcode yet on this year TIF2017 performer list, and we’re only 3 weeks away from the actual day, so yeah. i think they’re not invited for this year TIF…what a bummer ๐Ÿ™

Passcode – Damn you

Speaking of Passcode, They have events during the actual dates of TIF2017 which really makes me sad. ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ I really wanted to go for those (they have a live at Liquid Room at the same night of TIF2017 day 1, and also an album release event on 2nd day TIF2017 day time 12PM at Shibuya lol) but then again i probably not gonna sacrifice my TIF timeslots unless i am really crazy lol. It is technically possible, but it’s a bit time comsuming and requires alot of sacrifice.




Passcode new Album “Zenith”


They also have a release event on the 2nd August of 2017 (a date which proves to be VERY important date for me) at Shinjuku which i can go, but that one also clashes with other events on the same date that i really wanted to go too LOL. What a headache. Not sure how i am going to work that out, i probably still going for the Passcode one because there’s an cheki/2shot option during the event, and i want to clear that “bucket list” of having a cheki with passcode members at least once ๐Ÿ˜€




Babyraids new single “OOOOO” – Release at the same date of Passcode New Album


Btw, the event i have to sacrifice on the 2nd of August 2017 (dammit) is the babyraids new single release event, and that one they have a “Mini live” and a CD autograph session — and also, handshakes as well…d’oh !!! ๐Ÿ™ Why can’t they put them on different dates. ๐Ÿ™ Although Babyraids also have single release event the day before on the 1st of august (but minus the “autograph” signing session) so will have to see if i have to go that one instead of the 2nd august one…because i wanted Babyraids Autographs too !!

So yeah, this upcoming 2nd August I really need to think over in the next few days and will make my decisions soon…



Bottom Line:
So that should be that for my last “TIF” postwhore for this year. ๐Ÿ˜€ Probably not gonna update the blog anymore– at least until after i go back from my Japan Trip on the 1st week of August 2017. And like last year,probabl im not gonna update the blog in real time as well (wonder how did i manage to update all my blog post while im in japan last time in 2012-2013-2014 lols). ๐Ÿ˜›

Til then, see you later, thx for my reading my crappy blog post as usual and hoping for another excitin’ summer time in Japan !! Wohoooo! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

TIF2017 Map Updates ! And some stuffs~

Posted: June 12, 2017 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

So finally they have revealed the map areas for this year #TIF2017, and here’s what i thought about it !! ๐Ÿ˜€ Basically, on a quick glance, the map looks exactly/similiar to TIF2015 (2 years ago).

They removed last year TIF2016 “Ship Stage“, and bring back the “Heat Garage” from TIF2015 back at Zepp Diver, replacing the hot stage last year (which is held at zepp diver also). Instead, the Hot Stage this year would not be at Zepp diver again (since Heat Garage is now occupying the space again) so it’s probably be outdoor again just like in TIF2015.

Btw here’s a quick history of TIF Hot stage from year to years:
TIF2012 – Indoor (Zepp Diver)
TIF2013 – Indoor (Zepp Tokyo)
TIF2014 – Outdoor
TIF2015 – Outdoor
TIF2016 – Indoor (Zepp Diver)
TIF2017 – Outdoor?

Yes, if they follow the same format like in TIF2015, it will probably the same outdoor stage with some “shelter” areas which only covers the front areas of the stages. There is a priority seating area under the shelters, so if you cannot get inside this area, you have to stand from outside the areas without shelter, which means you’ll be burning under the sun..so get ready xD


TIF2014 Hot Stage Set-ups

Also, there’s one thing i didnt like from TIF2014/2015 outdoor setup. since there are “seating areas” here, many people are basically “chopping” up the seats and they won’t really move at all, so it’s kinda harder to move in front really. ๐Ÿ™ Basically if you really want to move closer to the stage (my experience in TIF2014/2015), you really need to be up for it. After each artist finished performing you have to get ready to move in front and wait for someone to leave, and then you can take over their seats.

This does not need to happen in indoor hot stages (tif 2016, 2013 and 2012) as there is no seating areas. No seating areas means NO RULE, you just need to squeeze through people if you wanna move in front (and if you can, xD).

But then again, i think they do this so can they can organize better. And most 48 groups will probably perform here anyway. So with seatings and stuffs, people cannot really build a “circle” or anyhow “mosh” there like you can do in Smile Garden. It’s easier for the security team to control the crowd also, so if you go crazy here (like Lifting and stuffs) probably the security will take a note and scold/kick you out, so be careful ! Haha. ๐Ÿ˜›

Ok enough about the Hot Stage. I did talk alot about the Hot Stage since most of the performers will be performing there anyways, i think it is kinda important haha ๐Ÿ˜€ As for the rest of the stage, i think they would be the same , so no need for explanation. Smile Garden, Sky Stage, Doll Factory all returning back. Festival Stage is the stage near the Gundam Statue (which they took down now and under construction), while the Dream Stage is called My Navi Stage back then in TIF2014. Greetings Area, Grand Market, and Tokyo Gravure Idol Festival is in the same areas again.


Good ol’ “Smile Garden” Stage!

Line Up Updates!:

There are some line up updates also yesterday, they finally added some groups like “BisH, “Gang Parade”, There There Theres” (formely known as bellring)– but still NO PASSCODE!!! ๐Ÿ™ Dammit, i guess need to wait up again for the passcode announcement…maybe they are still thinking whether to perform in Rock in Japan fest or in TIF…but hopefully they will still perform for one day at least in TIF !


Line Up Updates!

There’s also funny thing the line up there, as Tokyo Girls Style made it for this year TIF2017 haha ๐Ÿ˜€ If you didnt know btw, Tokyo Girls Style previously announced a few years ago that they’re NOT idol groups anymore and won’t be performing in TIFs — i guess all that changed now, they’ve made a comeback LOL :D. I heard there’s a change of management so maybe thats why they decided to come back?

Other things, they also have announced the dates of the performance for each idol groups. Even though the full exact timetable is not released yet (and probably won’t until last minute as usual), i am glad to see that 3 of my favorite groups will be performing in all 3 days of TIF2017 ๐Ÿ˜€ Babyraids, Maneki Kecak, and Kamiyado” all will be performing in all 3 days of the TIF!! Yippie ! ๐Ÿ˜€


3 days performance, thank you very much!

Passpo, Cheeky Parade, Supergirls also performed for all 3 days, while GEM and Wasuta only performed 2 days (4th and 5th August only), and Palet also (4th and 6th August only). And oh, BiS and BiSH also only performed for one day each (only on the 5th of august). Kamonegi also only performed for one day only (on the 5th of august…damn). As for the rest of the groups…haven’t really made any plans yet lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyways, click Here for the TIF2017 Line up Pages and Dates.

Some things i hope for next TIF Updates:
– Passcode Passcode Passcode —- please announce Passcode!!
– Guest List performers for Tokyo Gravure Idol Festival xD ๐Ÿ˜€
(Need moar bikinis…)

That’s about it for this #TIF2017 blog/postwhore updates for me. Till next time xD

My usual #TIF Post whore updates!

Posted: June 5, 2017 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

What’s up guys! Been a while since my last blog post, today i will update my blog with some new thoughts about the upcoming #TIF2017…so here you go, my yearly “Post whore” segment!! Let’s get it started shall we !!! ๐Ÿ˜€




Tokyo Idol Festival 2017 – Post Whore Edition 4th June 2017

So, what is up with this year TIF really? The updates are slow, and for some reasons they stopped giving “free pass” to gaijin this time round ! I must say, this is really/kinda affected me abit, as some of my friends who i knew is actually kinda “turned off” to the fact that they have to pay for this year TIF. ๐Ÿ™ To be honest,it’s been bugging me too — as i’ve kept on waiting for the free pass that never arrives…..i guss we really need to thank TGU last year for providing us service for the free pass lol. It seems that i need to pay again this year, after being a “cheapo” in the last 2 years using the gaijin tickets, But Hey, nothing is free forever you know ! ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh yeah, more on about TIF being slow with announcing the line ups and stuffs this year around… I wonder why. Or maybe they’re just too damn fast last year with the updates ? I know last year this time around they already done with announcing the free tix for gaijin, more line ups, and also more details such as Sparkling Nights” events which i am not sure if its going to be back this time around…

On the bright side though, today they also just announced the “TGIF” for this year TIF, so yeah!! It’s back again guys!!! The bikini 2shots is back officially! Just what im waiting for (it is still slow though!)…Now what i need is the announcement of the guest list for the TGIF segment lol.



Ok, moving on to the idol groups. There are many idol groups graduation this year. For example. No more Rev from DVL. No more Sanmini / 3min. No more Doll Elements. No more Dorothy Little Happy ๐Ÿ™ andddd etc etc etc etc… so obviously they wont be appearing in this year TIF :/ And there’s so many more / others idols graduation this year – be it an disbandment, or some members graduating from their idol groups etc etc, so im just giving an short example here….1 year in idolling world is such a short time actually — many things could change so you should enjoy your favorite idol groups while it last. But in the bright side of life, as always, for every idol groups that is disbanding/ graduating nowadays– there’s always a new one that pops out of nowhere and looking for new hungry DD wotas to support them xD

Like, for example there is this idol group called KAMOใŒใƒใ‚ฎใ‚’ใ—ใ‚‡ใฃใฆใใ‚‹ใƒƒ!!! (i usually just refer them as “Kamo Negi”). Last year they are in Odaiba Zepp Diver City, walking outside the gundam statue to hand out flyers for their future debut event later in August 2016. Now fast forward one year later — This year, they will performing in TIF for the first time ! What a sudden improvement with just 1 year difference eh ? ๐Ÿ˜€


KAMOใŒใƒใ‚ฎใ‚’ใ—ใ‚‡ใฃใฆใใ‚‹ใƒƒ!!! / Kamonegi

That is just an example for idol groups i will certaintly “look out” in this year TIF. In fact, there should be many more others like this because for this year TIF, they have this “selection” round of some idol groups from all over Japan which would be performing in this year TIF. But im not sure how that goes because im not following those groups, i guess i can only tell when i see them in person lol. But yeah, this year TIF, even though there are so many Major disbandment from some idol groups, there should be some new groups as well to look forward too. Maybe at this moment we just didnt know it yet, and they are waiting to be discovered ๐Ÿ˜‰

Also, if you are a regular visitors of my blog from the good ol’ days, then you should know that every year in TIF ever since 2012, my priorities has always been Passpo. Well, not anymore. Not for this year at least.

Passpo / Band Thoughts… Is it time???

I have to be honest that my interest in Passpo is slowly fading away. Yeah i know, i probably already mentioned this last year, but i feel like to mention it again because Passpo is still kinda important to me xD I still like them, i still like the songs, i still like “Annya”, etc etc. I can put a thousand reason why i still like Passpo, but in the end — i have to understand that they’re slowly maturing. Most of the members are in the 20’s and they are more focused to be a “band” nowadays compared to being an idols”.


Miomio still rocks with her guitar though!

I can already feel it in last year TIF, from the songs their sings at TIF, to the crowd ‘atmosphere’ when they are performing…it is soooo much….different. Man, i have to say that i miss the old Passpo back. Moshing to “Natsuzora Hanabi” in TIF2013/2014 is definitely one of the highlights back then. Nowadays i think most of the Passpo hardcore fans and ‘pinchikes’ has moved along to Puti Passpo. LOL!

This year TIF i will definitely drop by to see Passpo, maybe once, maybe twice. But they are no longer my priorities. Sorry Passpo ! I’ve been supporting them ever since 2011, But i can’t help to think that their time is nearing to an end – Especially with sooo many idol groups disbanding recently (like i mentioned before), i have a feeling they will follow the same path in 1-2 years time. Hopefully i am wrong though. I would be glad to see them survive as long as possible. In fact, being a “DD” i am, Passpo is actually the “Longest” idol group that i have supported ever so far. It took me a few years for me to lost interest in “AKB” and “Hello Project”, but it took me this far (6 years !! from 2011 to 2017) of Passpo before i can finally say…”it is time”.

Priorities in TIF2017

So,if not Passpo…what is my target in TIF then?? Let’s find out !! Here come the good parts after all the doom and gloom xD ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€




Babyraids Japan

Babyraids. Well well well. If you see my last year TIF2016 post whore then you should know that they are my favorite idol groups of 2016 xD That moment of them singing “Yoake Brand New Days” at Day 3 Smile Garden is just toooo damn awesome and im glad i was there!

This year they will definitely wil be in my priorities to see again. I like their new single and the new single outfit as well, so im looking forward for it. The only lowdown about Babyraids, is that their “buppan” is kinda…boring i guess? There is no 2shots/cheki like other idol groups, so not much time for interaction there. But i already accepted (the fact that its gonna be hard to meet them in close range/in person/ or take pictures with them) the moment i liked group, so it’s all cool with me. Haha

Of course i am still waiting for the moment to come one day when i can take a 2shot with babybraids members. It’s one on my “bucket list” currently. Not sure when the day will come, but hopefully soon !




Maneki Kecak

Maneki Kecak is another group that totally appeared out of nowhere and got into my DD radar!! They’re only formed recently in 2015 i think, and i only started liking them recently also. My favorite member is tied between Reona and Chiai and it will still remains undecided until at least i come back after TIF / or after seeing themself in person ๐Ÿ˜€ Hahaha!

Their songs is not everyone cup of tea. They sing a mixture of weird songs such as “Monster to Kecak” and the crowd pleaser “Joudan Ja Nai Ne” (which also sang by their sister group “Drop” which much different dance moves xD) but they also sing some awesome slow/powerful songs such as “Kimiwazurai”, “Time Machine”, and my recent favorite “Arikitarina Koto ba de (ใ‚ใ‚ŠใใŸใ‚Šใช่จ€่‘‰ใง)“. It is a “slow burner” song, but once i got my addicted to it – i can’t stop but keep looping the song recently. xD


So yeah, they’re being new also helps, as they are still pretty fresh to me, so i can’t wait to see them ! The only bad thing probably is that one of the member (Mayuka) announced her graduation at the end of last May, when i haven’t even got to see her yet…damn ๐Ÿ™ Not sure if they’re gonna continue with this 4 member line up for a while or if they gonna add a new members in the future, i guess we’ll just have to wait and see.




Kamiyado

Kamiyado. Another interesting group, their songs is usually fast paced, and kinda different from others, but some reasons i liked it! There are plenty of songs to chant/mix, and their lives (from what ive see in youtube so far) seems kinda fun as well xD

My list of favorite Kamiyado songs keeps growing each day, but some songs that definitely stuck in my playlist recently is “Harajuku Sentai, Kamiyado Ranger”, “Zenkai! Kamiyado World”, “KMYD”, and my personal fave “Hissatsu! Cho Kamiyado Senpu!”.

Just like Maneki Kecak, i have interest with 2 different members in Kamiyado, and that is Mika-chan (red) and Meirin (blue). Which one is my favorite – will still remains undecided until i meet them in person…so its a similiar scenario to Maneki Kecak xD

(Btw they also got cover Drop’s version of “Joudan Ja Nai Ne” in the past, and its one of my favorite versions (compared to the original Drop or Maneki version xD) check it out)



Kamiyado version of “Joudan Ja Nai Ne” is sooo much fun LOL!!




PassCode

Passcode. Now here is one group that is NOT ON TIF2017 Performer list yet !! I still do hope that they will make it this TIF, but i am kinda worried because “Rock In Japan Fes” also happens to be in the same day of TIF and they might be invited for that one instead….this is because recently they have announced that they will be performing in “Summer Sonic 2017” performing with other rock bands…uh oh…

So yeah, im not sure if they’re gonna make it in this year TIF. I really hope they still appears in TIF instead of “Rock in Japan fes” But i’ll just put this group in here because they’re one of my favorite group at the moment and i would be glad to see them again this year !!

*Let the praying begins*

+ I want to see the epic Yuna screaming again!!!


Other Groups:
Besides Babyraids, Maneki Kecak, Kamiyado, and Passcode, there are obviously other groups i wanted to see as well. Before above i already mentioned the new idol group “Kamo Negi” also. Other than that, i am still interested to see Idol Street again. “Cheeky Parade” (even though they will be a 5 members line up now after some members graduation) and also “GEM”. Will i actually see Supergirls this year? I never been a “hardcore fan” of Supergirls to be honest, in fact, they’re the last in my “idolstreet ladder ranking” but i can’t deny the fact that i like Nana Asakawa and she is smokin’ hot. HAHA. Maybe i will drop by one or two times but in the end — it depends on the time table schedule eh.

Also even though Sanmini/3min is disbanding, i got to give credits to Palet for surviving all these idols disbandment madness. Last year i would predict that they will be disbanding after soo many core members graduating from the group. But this year there is a light at the end of the tunnel (THANK GOD!). They have announced new fresh members to join the group, now they have a grand total of 8 members (more than Passpo!!). So yeah, i might drop by to see Palet for a few times because im kinda curious about the new members. Haha.


Palet new line up with 8 members. Should be interesting

#TIF2017 Post Whore Summary

So yeah. That should be that for this edition of #TIF2017 post whore edition by “Infzer0” xD In this edition, i’ve mentioned about my priorities in idol groups, my sudden lost of interest in passpo, and “Why the hell it is taking so slow for them to update the line up” this year?

Hopefully my next blog update will be more interesting than this though — and sorry if you got bored while Reading all this !! ๐Ÿ˜›

Local Idol Events in Jakarta – April – May 2017

Posted: June 5, 2017 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

Actually i wanted to update my blog back then, but i’ve just been tooo lazy haha. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› So yeah, ill do this update back to back together with my #TIF2017 post whore updates in one go. So let’s start the blog update with this event “Sakura Matsuri” in April 2017

Festive @ Sakura Matsuri Maxxbox Cikarang – April 2017

Sakura Matsuri” is a yearly “japanese” cultured themed events which is held regularly in “Cikarang” which is located in the outskirts of Jakarta (further to the east from “Bekasi”). It is a free event, but i guess the only bad thing about it is that the location is really far off (me and my friends ended up renting a “Grab Car” to reach there) and the venue is basically in the middle of nowhere. Before i start with anything, i really feel i have to mention the location– because it is THAT FAR. Seriously!!! ๐Ÿ™


MAxxbox Cikarang / Orange County…a boring place with nothing interesting to see

And also, during the event there are this japanese fan who is ‘kinda’ stuck in the event venue in Cikarang, while his hotel is all the way back in Jakarta… by the time day 1 finish (after the offkai event) it is nearing Midnight, and he’s really troubled to find cab to go back to the hotel (because the distance and some other stuffs). In the end i have to help him order a “Grab car” so he can go all the way back to Jakarta to reach his hotel (around 2-3 hours if JAM…now that is far) and the next morning come back to the venue again to see Festive lol. I suppose those who not familiar with Indonesia might think that the venue is actually near Jakarta, when it is actually not. Plus the JAM in indonesia can really kill you. (of boredom, stress, and some other stuffs xD) ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyways, this event really surprised me with a sudden announcement of “Festive” as a guest performer in the line up. Last few years they only bring local idols here (such as JKT48 and Lumina Scarlet), but i guess they tried for something different this year! This is the 2nd time “Festive” actually visited Indonesia in the span time of one year (last time they visited Indonesia for “GJUI” Event in August 2016).

Here are some pictures of from the events:


The day after the event, they also went to visit a local TV station here for a public TV appearance “SCTV Inbox“. Here are some pictures also from the appearance.


Overall, i did learn more about Festive members, their songs,and also the chants (for the songs) after their visit here…but it’s hard to say if i really liked them, even though i find that some of the members quite cute (Like Hinarin, and the new member Saria for example), but they are still far off from my “favorite” idol lists. I didnt spend that much for the buppan, and even though i have some overseas guest from Malaysia and Thailand that spends like no tomorrow…most of the time i’m only observing them haha!

So yeah, Festive is just “not there” for me. The members are cute, some the songs are decent. but after their 2nd visit here in Indonesia….not sure why. haha. Maybe it’s just my personal taste in the end. I will look forward for them to visit indonesia again though if they decide to come again! But hopefully i dont have to travel so far from Jakarta next time… Lol!!

Thoughts about Festive:
– The songs quite decent. After their 2nd visit to Indonesia, Now i like “Shidare Yanagi”, along with my previous favorite song “Magical Parade” which i already mention in my previous blog post before.
– Members give alot of fanservice during their visits here
– Off-kai event (meet and greet at a Seafood restaurant)
– The new member Saria (white color) quite cute ๐Ÿ˜›


Jakarta Idol Festival – May 2017

Jakarta Idol Festival is a local idol events here which is held at a “quite rundown” mall in the North of Jakarta called “Mangga Dua Square”. Most of the performers is a idol group / dance cover group from all over indonesia (for example, “Lumina Scarlet” from Bandung, and “Momiji Velvet” from Jogjakarta, etc etc) and they also have one Japanese idol group / guest from Japan also, “Enka Girls”.

Actually, Enka Girls is also one of the guest performer for Ennichisai which is held 2 days after this event (also in Jakarta region) so their appearance here is just a bonus i guess. Besides, i didnt really like their songs in general. So didnt do much except taking some pictures. ๐Ÿ˜› Here are some pictures of Enka Girls at the Jakarta Idol Festival.

Thoughts about Enka Girls:
– I dont like the songs
– Members so so only
– The only good thing about them is that the fanservice is REALLY good. But too bad i have no favorite member that really interest me.

Also, like i mention before, there are some cover dance groups also singing idol songs etc etc.I made a 5 minutes “highlights” videos in Youtube if you want to check it out. Btw, this footage doesnt includes “Enka Girls” at all….So mainly, just some lifting part and urya oi parts only Lol. Check it out ๐Ÿ˜›




Ennichisai 2017 – May 2017

Finally the yearly event “Ennichisai“. A Japanese Traditional/Culture event held yearly at Blok M Jakarta, which features some idol groups as the guest star line up. Last few years they bring idols such as Pinkbabies, Love Android, Starmarie, Faint Star here. For this year, at least something for a change…KissBee / Tokyo Samurai Girls and also Enka Girls, which already appeared previously in Jakarta Idol Festival.

And if i have to describe Ennichisai in a nutshell…its probably : “SEA OF PEOPLE“. Just see the picture below haha. Because of this i am too lazy to move around elsewhere

So yeah. Basically i only came here 2 days just to take pictures of KissBee. To be honest i didnt really like their songs in general (its more like a slow paced songs and you cannot really chant lol) but i find that some of the members is quite cute- so it’s still okay as an object of photography xD ๐Ÿ˜€ Here are some selected pictures off KissBee / Tokyo Samurai Girls


Basically both of “KissBee” and “Tokyo Samurai Girls” is the same, they’re only wearing different outfits. They will wear samurai / kimono outfit if they appears as “Samurai Girls” and doing some traditional dance moves instead of singing idol songs like in KissBee. I find one of the member “Misaki Tani” is quite cute as well…most of the members are still 17 years old, with only one of them is over 20 years old (i forgot which one though) !

Thoughts about KissBee:
– Their songs are so-so only. Cannot really chant at all also which is a let down.
– Members are Cute though!! ๐Ÿ˜€ :3
– Chekis quite cheap at 50.000 Rupiah (500 yen for polaroid) or 30.000 Rupiah (300 yen for using handphone).

I think that should be all for my blog coverage about Ennichisai this year. Yes there are other things i’ve done at the event too (same as in Sakura Matsuri and Jakarta Idol Festival) but since this blog is particually focused on “Japanese Idols” or Japanese Travel…i will only focus on those only, which in this case, Japanese idols. Didnt really care much about Enka Girls either so for this Ennichisai update i only focused on KissBee…so sorry about that hehe ๐Ÿ˜€

PS:
I still forgot my Flickr password so im abit lazy to upload the pictures to Flickr nowadays…my backlog of pictures to upload actually is quite alot haha. But maybe someday~~

Thailand Japan Expo Trip ! (9th-13th Feb 2017)

Posted: February 25, 2017 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!


I went to Thailand for the “Thai Japan Expo 2017” around 2 weeks ago (during my 9th to 13th February Thailand trip). Actually, this is really an “impulse” trip — as none of my favorite groups actually performing in this events (well i kinda liked Up Up Girls…so yeah). But since many of my friends also went, and the fact that the event itself is a “FREE” event in a Mall (!!)…well…why the hell not. I found a rather cheap ticket to BKK at the end of December last year, so i booked it with my Christmas money (lol).


Thai Japan Expo 2017 Banner

If you see the Line up above, actually it’s not that bad at all. My main aim for this event (even though they’re not really my favorites — but i still kinda like them so its okay) is “Up Up Girls Kakko Kari”, “Wasuta”,, “Festive” and “Akishibu Project”. The rest is basically just a bonus, haha. ๐Ÿ˜›

So throughout the 3 days event, the Thai Japan Expo has multiple stages set-up throughout the Malls area (2 indoors and 2 outdoors), a buppan area, etc, so basically it’s just like a mini TIF. Their goods price is also normal price as their japan standard, although there are some bonus as well, such as free hi-5 or free handshakes. Some of the idol groups you can take group picture with them for “FREE” as well, at the Girls Bomb booth or some other booth (like Ready To Kiss, Say La, Wonder Weed, Festive, etc), while idol groups like “Up Up Girls Kakko Kari” surprisingly has a 2shot/group shot cheki (!!) My friend also told me that this is a rare stuffs by them — and their 2shot is also the most expensive there. UUG 2shot chekis is like, 1000 bath (3000 yen) while the UUG Group shot cheki is around 700 bath (around 2500 yen).




Up Up Girls Kakko Kari Day 1 Buppan…im already standing by since morning!

I remember being so overjoyed in my hostel room when i heard the news that you can take picture with them (UUG) ! ๐Ÿ˜€ ;which they didnt really announce until 1 day before the event started :/ Also, one other notable things is “Wasuta aka The World Standard”. As you can see, Idol Street sometimes is kinda “strict” with their 2shot policy in japan (most of the time you can take 2shot during their birthday event and you need to be OFC for that), but for Wasuta when they go overseas, you can pretty much take group photo with them for FREE!! So yeah, it is kinda worth it. You still get a free photopack of them also if you tweeted that group picture with #Wasuta hashtag in the social media. Neat stuffs!!


Wasuta Day 2 Appearance

As for “Akishibu Project”, i got addicted with them lately, and i am really gutted now that i didnt get the chance to take pix with Yuuna Arakawa during last year “TGIF 2016” bikini cheki segment haha. But oh well. Most of akishibu project songs is basically a generic idol songs that is easy to listen to. Some of the members also not bad looking but my fave one is definitely “Yuuna Arakawa“, while “Kera Hinako” is quite cute too haha. Most of the Akishibu project members are walking around in the venue giving flyers, and while they’re doing it, you can also take selfie with them for free ! Another free treat! But in the end i still paid to buy Cheki 2shot with Yuunarin and in the end my 2shot with her at the end of trip is 3x (which is the most i take with an idol during this trip !), so yeah, you can say i am kinda addicted with them lol.

Thai Japan Expo 2017 – 3 Days Summary
At first i thought of doing a separate “day by day” post for each of the “Thai Japan Expo”, but then i decided not to because it would be too long. This is, because, during the Thai Japan Expo trip, i took like over 10.000 (!!) pix of idols with my DSLR (since im a part-time “Idolgrapher” :P). The event itself is in public place and there is no restriction of taking photos; so it is a good CHANCE for me to take pictures of them (which is another RARE thing in japan). Which explain why i took soooo many pictures during this trip (and they will be uploaded to my Flickr Eventually, although if you follow my twitter, i already spammed like dozen of pix there in the last several days lol) so imo, this trip is already WORTH IT for that alone.

So yeah, here is my “shorter” summary of 3 days “Thai Japan Expo 2017” Event:

Some notes about each idol groups during the Thai Japan Expo.

Up Up Girls Kakko Kari:

One of the member (Ayano) sprained her ankle during her previous event in taiwan (i think) so she didnt perform that much in thailand. Even though when they’re in stage, she always stand in the side and didnt really do much.

Their performance is as energetic as always though; and they performed 2 of my favorite song by them; “Appare”, and “Party People Alien”, so all is good !! ๐Ÿ˜€

There is one complain i have during Day 3 of Thai Japan Expo though. Me and my friend were camping in the morning for the segment (UUGs, Kikka, Lovely Doll, etc etc) and in the last minute before the performance started, they pushed everyone at the right side of the “T” shaped stage behind (which is where me and my friends at…shit!) because they want to prepare a space for “VIP’s” people (later i realized that its for the “guest” who wants to watch AKB48 and also the major announcement of BNK48). Some of the japanese at the right side/front row of the “T” shaped stage really complained about it because if not pushed, we would be sooo close right in front of the stage. The left side of the “T” shaped stage however, survived, which makes me think we should’ve been there at the left side of the stage in the beginning.

But other than that, i think i have no major complains for the event.

Akishibu Project:
Im a “late bird” when it comes to akishibu, i didnt even see them at all during my last 2 years TIF trip, so this trip is the first time i actually see them live ! Yuunarin is really pretty in real live, wow, i am addicted to her ! ๐Ÿ˜€

They sing 2 of my favorite songs also which is “Summer Summer” and “Manatsu No Serenade”.

Wasuta / The World Standard:
The free group shot is really worth it ! Enough said.
Also, โ€œUltra Mirakurukuru Final Ultimate Choco Beamโ€ is my favorite song and they performed it almost every time, so yep…awesome.

Festive:
Didnt spent alot of time in Festive buppan this time around because mainly my focus is either with UUG / Akishibu and Wasuta so really you can’t have them all. Managed to talk to hinarin for few times but basically that’s it. So Nothing much.

Decent setlist also, and they did sing “Magical Parade!”

Other Groups:
Magical Ban Bang is quite awesome; and i am really addicted to their song “่ถ…โ†‘็ฉถๆฅต็ตถๅฏพๅฌๅ–š้ญ”ๆณ•้™ฃ” which is very addicting.


Magical Ban Bang


Ready to Kiss also has some catchy songs but i dont know most of the titles until now lol.

Say La…i didnt know much about them, but their song “I Love you” is quite catchy.

Lovely Doll did sing 2 of my favorite songs by them which is “Setsunatsu Diver” and “Bitter Choco Valentine”, and also got addicted with another song by them (“Calendar Girl”) after i come back from Thailand…Lol.

– I also think Robin from Ciao Bella Cinquetti is very pretty…the fact that 90% of my Ciao Bella pix i took with my DSLR is mainly her pictures only should explain everything lol.

Kikka, Ciao Bella Cinquetti and Up Up girls did this Berryz old song “Cha cha sing” during their day 1 performance which is quite awesome also.

As for other groups i failed to mention here, means that i find them as so so only — or i didnt have enough time to see them as a whole. I also skipped AKB48 appearance in the outdoor stage during Day 3 (lazy with the crowd, so many people), and also Pink Cres (with ex Berryz member Miyabi Natsuyaki) during day 2 night performance because clash of schedules.



Verdict about the trip:
– Took over 10.000 pix with my DSLR. Too many idols stock photos for me now !
– Thai Wotas is awesome.
– Thai Foods is great and everything is cheap.
– The hostel where i stayed for 4 nights is not bad also. “Glur Hostel Bangkok”. Lazy to link here, just google it.
– Would definitely come back next year if possible (and hopefully the line up is better !) ๐Ÿ˜€

PS:
TIF2017 is coming up in around 6 months, so expect more “TIF” postwhore from me in the future post too…very soon ๐Ÿ˜› Recently i’ve been liking Maneki Kecak and Kamiyado alot (thx to my friends for brainwashign me lol), so i guess they would be one of my “to-watch” list during this year TIF. More post about that in my next TIF postwhore update ๐Ÿ˜‰

Goodbye 2016…Hello 2017

Goodbye 2016…Hello 2017


It’s that time again — for me to do a quick recap of year 2016’s “Idolling journey” hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€ Just in case you didnt know, every year i always do this long-ass post of summary of my idolling journey lol~ And i usually only updated my blog before TIF’s, New Year Post, and if there any particular idol events that caught my eye in my country. LOL.

So yeah…without further ado, let’s get it started ๐Ÿ˜€

My Past New Year / Yearly post:
2015 Idolling Journey
2014 Idolling Journey
2013 Idolling Journey
2012 Idolling Journey


January 2016 to May 2016

As you can see, i have stopped going to JKT48 theatre ever since December 2015 (that’s the last time i actually applied for a theatre show), so i went into a “low key” period for any 48 activities (as my interest towards “48 groups” slowly to fade anyway, so it’s about expected). Although i still buy photopacks and also attended some HS (handshake) events here and there… but i survived so long without stepping inside the JKT48 Theatre lol. Below is a screencap of my JKT48 Membership account from their website.


5th December 2015 is the last time i applied for JKT48 Theatre Shows !!

So, many of the “idolling” memories during the first 5 months of 2016 is just some other local idolling events xD ๐Ÿ˜€ The first one being set in Bandung (about 3 hours trip from Jakarta). I went for a short trip to Bandung to see some local japanese event. Over there i managed to see some of their local idol groups such as Lumina Scarlet, and Kirari. To my surprise, there is a lot of local cover groups in Bandung, haha. And also. just happened that “4 Durian” (a sub-unit from JKT48) also performed in Bandung that weekend!

In February 2016, Idol Duo Faint Star visited Jakarta once again for some local event in Jakarta (Bijac event at Binus University). They went Jakarta for so many times now, so i didnt do much there except to take pictures lol.

In April 2016 went for Indonesia Motorshow event to take some pictures of Race Queen, and JKT48 happened to be there also. Even though i stopped going for theatre shows, i still do take pictures of them once in a while.

In early May 2016, attended Lumina Scarlet live performance in “Baywalk Mall” Jakarta. This is one of their last show before Lumina Scarlet went for their first overseas performance in Japan !! (yep, quite a milestone for a local “cover/idol” group here :D)

Bandung Jap Festival (30.01.2016) and Tenshi No Matsuri Bandung event (31.01.2016)
“Faint Star” Mini Live at Bijac Binus University (February 2016)

Lumina Scarlet @ Baywalk Mall (8th May 2016)


Ennichisai Event – May 2016

Finally it’s the yearly Japanese Event/Festival “Ennichisai” in the middle of May 2016. Compared to previous year, this year Ennichisai is abit so-so only…well, maybe it’s because last year they managed to bring 4 idol groups here (Starmarie, Pinkbabies, Fainstar and Love Android during Ennicisai 2015) but for this year 2016 event…they only bring the latter two (which is Love Android and Faint Star!). And yeah i know, Faint Star keep going back to Jakarta so it’s getting kinda boring. I wish they’d bring a different set of idol groups — but oh well. It’s a free event, what do you expect? ๐Ÿ˜› Haha.

Ennichisai Event @ Blok M (May 2016)



LinQ – Live @ Aeon Mall BSD (Fukuoka Fair Event, July 2016

Out of the blue, LinQ suddenly visited Jakarta for a “Fukuoka Fair” Event in Aeon Mall BSD. It’s really out of the blue because the event is kinda “low profile” and not alot of people actually knew about this event.

The main event purpose though, is about promoting “Fukuoka” itself, with some Fukuoka Food showcase and Free tasting with some other things to promote Fukuoka (including a mini “travel fair”) and of course — an Idol Group performance from LinQ, which is based in Fukuoka which fits perfercly ! ๐Ÿ˜€

For more detailed post about the LinQ Event, you can read my blog post about the event here

LinQ at Aeon Mall BSD (July 2016)




Japan Trip – Tokyo Idol Festival 2016 – August 2016

During 2015 and 2016, i only went to Japan once per year — and that is during the TIF period only. Usually i went japan for longer period (around 20 days– which is why the blog name now xD) but i have decided to cut down my spending and only go for a yearly TIF trips.

During the TIF2016 i also finally decided that Babyraids is definitly my favorite Idol Groups for 2016. I had doubts about Passpo ever since they announced the “Passpo Band” thingy — and i am totally correct. Even though i like Passpo so much, their performance is TIF2016 is abit “underwhelming” in my opinion. So, even Passcode topped above them in my books ! ๐Ÿ˜€ Haha.

Here is my Top 5 Idol Groups in 2016.
1. Babyraids Japan
2. Passcode
3. Passpo
4. Cheeky Parade
5. GEM

As for the Japan Trip Highlights, i’m not gonna go much into details, you can just can scroll down my blog post for that since it’s too damn long xD

Festive @ GJUI Event (August 2016

โ€œFESโ˜†TIVEโ€ came to Indonesia for the โ€œGelar Jepang Universitas Indonesiaโ€ event in Indonesia, Jakarta(or also known as โ€œGJUIโ€œ). I didnt know much about them — but any idol groups that visits Indonesia is welcomed in my book. Although i did some research and some of their songs just didnt catch my ears…one of the member (Hinarin) is quite cute though !! xD ๐Ÿ˜€

For more detail post about the Festive Live in Jakarta, you can Read My Blog Post Here

Festive Live In Jakarta August 2016


Silent Siren Live In Jakarta – September 2016

Silent Siren went to Jakarta for the 3rd time in a space of 2 years time. Early Last year, i didnt know much about them (yep, iโ€™m a late fan i know), and i just knew them ever since they started doing collaboration with โ€œPasspoโ€ during Last year โ€œTokyo Idol Festival 2015โ€ at the Heat Garage Stage.

During this year Live in Jakarta, they used the same venue again (same as last year). Although for the meet and greet after the concert, you can take a group picture with them as long you spend/bought about 500k Rupiah (around 4000 yen) in Goods….nice !! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

For more detail post about the Silent Siren Live in Jakarta, you can Read My Blog Post Here

Silent Siren Live in Jakarta – September 2016


Anime Festival Asia Indonesia – September 2016

Anime Festival Asia Indonesa (or also known as “AFA ID”) is a bit of a let down for me. Although they did bring Tomomi Itano (ex AKB48) here, she didn’t do anything except for a talk show that lasted aroudn 15 mins long…she didnt even perform at all lol. There’s no idol groups from Japan as well — all they have is a local idol groups “Shoujo Complex”. Haha. So yeah, nothing much to say about this year AFA ID 2016.

Tomomi Itano @ Jakarta Airport Before AFA ID 2016
AFA ID 2016 @ JIEXPO – September 2016


Various Local Idol Events October – November 2016

In the 1st of October 2016, i atended some local idol groups event at Lippo Mall Puri called Puri Bukansai 2016 to see Lumina Scarlet once again. They didnt perform in Jakarta that often, so i almost always see them when they come around to Jakarta to perform here, haha ๐Ÿ˜€ They also came to Jakarta again at the 30th of October 2016 to perform in Mall Alam Sutra.

In early November 2016 then i went for Indo Motorbike Show to take some pix of JKT48 (it’s been a while since i took pix of JKT48 !)

So yeah, nothing much towards the end of the year for me lol. Here’s some pix instead ๐Ÿ˜›

Lumina Scarlet @ Puri Bukansai Event – 1st October 2016
Lumina Scarlet @ Mall Alam Sutra – 30thOctober 2016
JKT48 @ Indo Motorbike Show 2016 (2nd and 7th November 2016)




Japan Film Festival Jakarta – 26th November 2016

Japan Film Festival 2016 held in Jakarta at FX Sudrman Mall on the 24th-26th of November 2016. They held many Japanese movies here for screening (watched “Chihayafuru Part 1 and 2”, “Creepy”, and “Tsukiji Wonderland” here), and they also bring a Japanese duo idol group “Yanakiku for a mini live performance.

I didnt know much about Yanakiku and their style of music is not really fit to my taste, so i can’t write so much about them here lol…. Here’ s some pictures of them instead haha.


Yanakiku @ Japan Film Festival 26th November 2016


Late November – December 2016

There is some other local idol events i attended towards the end of 2016 as well (such as some event in Karawang and Mangga Dua Square) but i doubt anyone knows much about these cover groups (except for Lumina Scarlet). But i think Yanakiku was the last Idol Group from Japan who came to Jakarta anyway.

Some pix from Karawang Idol Festival 27 November 2016

I also went to Bandung again in the middle of December 2016 because JKT48 has a Live and Handshake event there. Went there with my friends but only for walk around in bandung. Nothing much to say about the concert and the handshake event… i guess im already losing interest in the 48 fandom anyways ๐Ÿ˜›


Bandung Trip December 2016

So yeah…that’s about if for Year 2016 for me. ๐Ÿ˜€

2017 Resolution ??
Every year my new year resolution is to stop idolling ever since 2013/2014 — but it always failed. And here i am again writing my blog post — while they already announced the dates for Tokyo Idol Festival 2017 next year in August 2017!!! In the end it’s becoming a “never ending circle” for me lol

Will i be there in Odaiba next year for the TIF2017 ? That’s a good question…but i’m not sure. I’m getting too old now, so maybe i should consider about it. But who knows what will happen in the future , so yeah, till next time…here’s the TIF2017 Logo for you. xD

See ya next year and thanks for always reading my crap as usual ! ๐Ÿ˜€

TIF2016 Smile Garden Highlights Videos

Posted: October 8, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

Well it’s been 2 months since #TIF2016 and i finally got my lazy ass to work on yet-another-TIF-compilation videos. ๐Ÿ˜€ Yep i’ve done this every year so far, just that too bad every time i uploaded them to Youtube — it got deleted because of their strict copyright practise ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ So this time i decided to upload them to “Facebook” (weird choice i know, lol) and another video host Vid.Me. I also reuploaded all my old TIF videos to Vid.Me…let’s see how long these files will last. lol. ๐Ÿ˜€


TIF2016 Moments
Facebook VideosVid.Me



List of all my TIF Moments Vids :

– TIF2016 moment (Facebook Videos Mirror)

– TIF2015 moment

– TIF2014 moment

– TIf2013 moment

– TIF2011 moment

Yep…as you can see, there is no “TIF2012” videos…”yet”…because i haven’t made them LOL. But don’t worry, im currently working on it. ๐Ÿ˜€ Actually, the reason why i havent made TIF2012 videos, because i have problem splitting scenes from the actual TIF2012 video footages back then, which resulted me from skipping it completely. But nowadays i found a “new” and “faster” method to split these scenes. Back then i would’ve used this video splitter program called “BoilSoft Video Splitter“, but as you can see – it’s not really compactible with some video formats such as .TS and some other weird codecs.

The recent TIF2016 Smile Garden footages were also in .TS format and that video splitter program also having problem splitting it. Because of this, i tried to find a new and easy way to split scenes from the videos. But thanks to this program “Bandicam“, which i have used recently to record webstreams, i can just “record” the scene instead of “splitting” it lol. ๐Ÿ˜€ It saves me alot of time also. All i need to do is press one button during the scene i want to record, and it will record the moment for me (for me to stich up later with different video editor program, see below).


VDSC Video Editor which i used to make the compilation vids

Unfortunately i used a free version of the program so u can see “BandiCam” web url watermark all over my TIF2016 videos…lol. But whatever. Now, to stich and complile all the videos back together, i used a free video editor “VSDC Video Editor”, which i also used to make my previous “TIF2015” moments videos. It’s a free program but surprisingly quite powerful and easy to use ๐Ÿ˜€

Also, if you noticed the TIF2016 videos, i only “focused” on the smile garden stage only. I actually really liked that Stage (smile garden), despite the summer heat which is like HELL, but at night the atmopshere transformed totally. Almost every year i ended my TIF at the Smile Garden stage (instead of the hot stage), and every year it’s been really fun ๐Ÿ˜€


The Infamous Lightstick / UO’s throwing scene during Babyraids Performance

I might make another “TIF2016” moment videos from other stages as well, so we’ll see about that. ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜› By the way, until now there is still not a single video footage of #TIF2016 Ship Stage at all. I wonder what’s up with that? :O


Other Things:

You probably didnt know but i used to have a Passpo Forums. The forum has been in-active for a while, and for all these times i keep on paying the bills for the domain name and server. I want to keep my server bills low, and so to avoid wasting money and keeping the forum up at the same time (nope, i dont want to delete it yet even though its in-active), i decided to “merge” it into my other server.

The domain name changed as well, from www.passpofan.com, now it becomes www.passpofan.net7.pw. So yeah, please update your bookmark if you use to visit that forum before — it’s NOT dead yet ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Silent Siren Live in Jakarta 2016 (9.9.2016)

Posted: September 13, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!


Silent Siren Jakarta Live 2016 @ Upper Room (09.09.2016)

Silent Siren went to Jakarta for the 3rd time in a space of 2 years time. Early Last year, i didnt know much about them (yep, i’m a late fan i know), and i just knew them ever since they started doing collaboration with “Passpo” during Last year “Tokyo Idol Festival 2015” at the Heat Garage Stage. I remember that day one of the saisai (Silent Siren) member “Yukarun” appears on the TIF stage together with passpo singing Passpo’s trade mark song “Material Girl”. Haha. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Fast Forward after that, they apperared two times in Indonesia during 2015; Firstly at “GJUI 2015” event as one of the Guest Performer there, before doing their first solo concert in Jakarta in September 2015 last year. If you track back my earlier blog post, you can see my post about those events as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyways, for last year concert at the Upper Room i went as a media to take pictures, so for this year Live, i decided to go for the VIP SEAT one. So on the 9th September 2016, The day of the Live, i met my friends quite early before the concert so i can secure the “Meet and Greet” ticket. The Meet and Greet Ticket cost 500k rupiah (around 4000 yen) and you get the “Silent Siren World Tour T-Shirt, A Towel, a Group Photo with Silent siren (!) and also handshake with them ! I think its a very awesome deal!


Meet and Greet Ticket Package


Queue at around 3PM

After securing the Meet and Greet ticket, basically it’s just a waiting game until the Live starts at 19:30PM. I queued in front with a fellow fans from Singapore, Hongkong and one guy from Malaysia. There’s also Japanese fans but i think they decided to queue at the back.

So the gate Open at 18:30 and i rushed inside to find a spot for myself. Strangely, i remember few months ago before the concert, they announced that the live will be an “All Standing” concert. But today, once we got inside there are chairs/seats everywhere. Haha. Oh well. Maybe the organizer last minute changed their minds about the “free/all standing” and decided to put chairs in there. So for the seats, i managed to secure a 2nd row centre row, which isn’t all that bad…Lol.


Inside the Venue

Now onto the concert part. It’s really awesome. For some reason they started to do “Bang Bang Bang!” and “Biisan” quite early in the live. They also sing “Hacigatsu No Yoru, Soukai Rock, Happi Mari” etc etc, but my favorite part is when they sing “Secret Base, Koi Yuki“, and “Stella” back to back half way through the concert…OMG !! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

There’s also one song i got addicted lately, and that is “Love Fighter”. I didnt really like DanceMusiQ that much either, but during the live, it’s actually quite fun. Lol.

For the encore parts they sing 3 songs, “Sinbad, What Show It Is?, and finally Cherry Bomb“. Quite awesome setlist! Although they never sing “Sweet Pop!” and Kakumei this year to make way for newer songs…oh well.

Anyways here is the full setlist from the Concert.

19. What show is it?
20. Cherry Bomb

After the concert it’s time for meet and greet. Me and my friends quequed quite last minute because we went out from the hall quite late. And by then the queue already quite very long lol. Doesnt Matter though. During the Meet and Greet, i didnt talk to them that much anyway (since they’re not idols), so i just went to handshake with them and take a group shot. Haha.


Group Shoot with Sai Sai

After the concert, me and my friends went to eat a late dinner at my singaporean friend’s hotel for a late night gathering. Before i finally went back home at around 12-1am. Phew. Haha. What a day.


With Singapore, Japanese, Malaysian saisai fans

Overall, the concert is very nice. And the experience for this year concert leaves a MUCH BIGGER impression for me compared to last year live. Maybe because for this year, i see them much more closer (2nd row centre) and also still got the meet and greet after the live. Last year i went as a media, and watched the 3/4 for the concert from the back row, and also didnt attend the meet and greet (only high touch from what i heard, so this year group shoot and handshake is a HUGE upgrade, haha). ๐Ÿ˜›

I do hope Saisai come to Jakarta again though; Hinanchu said before that if possible they want to do a live in Jakarta every year. So let’s hope she keep her words for next year (2017) Live in Jakarta. ๐Ÿ˜€

Highlights / Best Part of the concert For Me:
“Bang bang Bang!, Biisan, Joshikou Sensou, Secret Base, Love Fighter, Koi yuki, Stellla, Cherry Bomb”

Quick Hostel Review – Akihabara Grids

Posted: August 29, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan Hostels, Japan!!

Akihabara Grids Capsule – Akihabara

Just want to do quick review of this place. Stayed here for a total of “1 day” only, so can’t say much about it. ๐Ÿ˜› The only reason why i chose to stay here because its location in AKIHABARA!!, and it’s quite reasonable price at around 3000 Yen per night!

Ok let’s get it started shall we. ๐Ÿ˜€


Facilities:

The capsule room is just like your standard capsule hotel type, so nothing much to say here.


The WIFI of this place, is quite good though ! Quite fast compared to the Iriya 1980 capsule hotel i stayed before lol. The main lobby of the hotel is also very spacious, and the staff can speak abit english so check in is not a problem at all. They also let you drop luggage at the lobby if you came too early, and there is place to sit around at the main lobby also.

Oh, there is a common room at the top floor- although it is kinda small. See picture below


Common Room at the Top floor

Now into the bad parts… Read the rest of this entry »

FESโ˜†TIVE Live in Jakarta (20th August 2016)

Posted: August 24, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

So, Idol group “FESโ˜†TIVE” came to Indonesia for the “Gelar Jepang Universitas Indonesia” event in Indonesia, Jakarta(or also known as “GJUI“). They came here for a grand total of 5 days total, including some appearance at local TV here (SCTV “Inbox” Show), some radio appearance, and also “Fan Meeting” Event which is located at a ZOO (Ragunan, somewhere in South of Jakarta).


I attended the Festive Presscon a day before the GJUI Event.

Basically, since i dont know much about them so i will just keep this post “short”…haha. But it’s my tradition to cover an idol group when they visited my country (being an “idol-otaku” that i am, even though if i didnt know much about them, lol :D)

I did take 2shot with Mikki before during TIF2016 “TGIF” segment a few weeks ago though during my Japan Trip, but that’s just for fun. Haha. It’s funny how she looks so surprised when i showed my TGIF polaroid cheki to her at the booth merchandise stand there. Hahaha. ๐Ÿ˜›


Festive mebers @ Their Merchandise Stand @ GJUI


The goods their selling at the stand

Anyways, i can’t come up with a full setlist for Festive cuz all i know is “Magical Parade” and “Summer Jumping”. Their song is all fast paced one, but for some reason most of them didnt catch my ear…lol. So here is my short/quick summary of them during their visit to Jakarta, Indonesia. ๐Ÿ˜›

Plus:
– The members quite ok in “fishing”. Especially Hinarin ^^ (and Kotone + Momoka also from what i heard).
– Cheap cheki/2shot 500 yen, group shoot 1000 yen
– The goods their sell at buppan/stand also very cheap (lightstick change color only 1000 yen? tshirt 2000 yen?)
– Members walking around the venue and can 2shot for free (use mobile phone)
– They performed 12 songs during the live. that is ALOT!!! :O They also didnt cut their screen time despite the delays, so thx to the organizer
– Energetic performance despite the performance is nearing to Midnight time already !! (Lol)

Minus:
– Still dont like the songs, maybe only one or two songs only (Magical Parade, Summer Jumping)
– The Live got delayed until sooo late at night time. 22:30 start, 23:40 (!!!) finish lol
– 2shot only 50k rupiah (around 500 yen), but their Zoo Trip on Sunday actually cost 600k , in japanese yen is around 5000+ yen (which i think too expensive for local standards, but i think all the jap fans still go though!)
– Too bad got one member didnt come for this event, so its 7 out of 8 members (not complete)

Overall it’s still quite fun. But for some reason imo, LinQ appearance in Aeon Mall BSD last month is much better experience for me haha. Maybe cuz i like LinQ’s song better lol ๐Ÿ˜€

(…..Hinarin is still cute though !!><). Oh. About Hinarin. She likes idol too, in the end we talked abit about Hello Pro and C-ute being disbanding next year, since i dont know any other topics to talk her with xD. But surprisingly, we got along just fine during the 2shot + meet and greet at the stand/buppan there. Haha. ๐Ÿ˜›

Some pictures of course.






2shot with @aoba_hinarin (my fave member :3) ๐Ÿ˜›


Group Shot with Festive

You can also check out my Flickr album for more Festive photos….and that’s about it ๐Ÿ˜€

END OF (my short) REPORT.

Japan Summer Trip 2016 – 8th and 9th August 2016

Posted: August 16, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

So, now that my #TIF2016 post has finally ended, i still have 2 days left of my japan trip…Haha. Actually, for the last 2 days, there are so many idol events that i could attend – for example there is this “Campus Summit” event at Tsutaya O-east, with LinQ, Idol College, GEM, etc” as the main headliners, but since i’m still tired from the yesterday #TIF2016 event, i decided not to go.

There’s also the “Passcode” one man live at Zepp Diver. I am really tempted to go actually, but the fact that it’s inside odaiba once again (and i had to check out and move to Akihabara Capsule Hotel — it’s just too much for me to go Akiba then go back to Odaiba again), i decided to give it a miss also. So today i just checked in to my Capsule hotel at Akihabara, then went on a shopping spree in Akiba once again.


My Weird Breakfast for the day. Calbee potatoe chips with Passpo Flavour!!


Shopping at Trio, saw these 2nd hand babyraids CDs at Book Off!!


Besides shopping in Akiba, i’m also meeting with my other indo friends who just arrived in tokyo. Plus,i still have the “Tsubomi” event in the afternoon (bought the tickets on my 1st day in Japan, remember ? haha) and also, i’m planning to go to the Kamen Joshi’s “Parms Theatre” later after that. So let’s begin with the “Tsubomi” event first.

Tsubomi AV Event – 8th August 2016 – 16:30PM

For the Tsubomi event, it is held at this AV shop called “Media World Akiba”, at the top floor of the building. Since Tsubomi is pretty much a “household” name in the AV Industry — i was expecting her event to be Full House. To my surprise, the event is not even half full ! (well maybe it is half full but i left as soon as the event finishes). But then again, maybe it’s because it’s held during the weekdays.

Anyways, i bought 2 DVDs, so that allows me to take photos of her for like 7-8 different pose, a signed DVDs, a home-made cookies from her, and also, 2shot with her. Not bad eh? All for 5000+ yen only ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are few photos from the photoshoots.





2Shot and some Photos of Tsubomi from the Event

During the DVD signing, Tsubomi asked me where i’m from, etc etc (told her im from Bali/Indonesia as always, like i always do for all AV stars…hahahaha). But since i’m going to this event with bunch of friends (lol), most of them already said that we’re coming here because of #TIF2016 hahaha. So when she ask me that i’m here also for #TIF2016, i told her, “Yeah, i’m here to see EBISU MUSCAT in TIF2016″. Lol. Then her reaction is like “oooh, Ebisu Muscat-san!!” xD ๐Ÿ˜€

She also gave us home made cookies (well, its only for the first 40 people — but like i said before, the event is not really full house, so we still got it anyways. Guess we’re the early birds). Not sure if she really make it herself, but my friend checked her blog and it’s like she really make the cookies herself lol…soo yeah. Not bad. The cookies taste nothing special though !


Home Made cookies by Tsubomi, yay



PARMS Theatre for Kamen Joshi – 8th August 2016 – 19:30PM

After the Event has ended, around 19:30 PM we quickly headed to the P.A.R.M.S theatre to see Kamen Joshi / Alice Juban. Actually, im not really into Kamen Joshi that much — i just wanted to see Erina Kamiya of Steam girls….oh man…her Gravure works is really hot — if you know what i mean…LOL ๐Ÿ˜€


Panorama inside the PARMS Theatre

This is my 2nd time going to PARMS btw, the last time i went is to take 2shot with Jun Amaki and that was before she graduated and become a full time Gravure Idol. Haha. So anyways. The entrance ticket is basically a 1500 yen food voucher which you can use/exchange with Foods and Drinks !!! Didnt know you can exchange for foods also (last time i only used it for drinks), so this time i decided to exchange the coupon for a Curry Rice (900 yen) and Pepsi Cola (600 yen) — just nice 1500 yen value.


900 Yen Curry Rice and 600 yen Pepsi Drink

For the performance, it’s around 1 hour and 30 minutes peformance, with some performance from their sub units (steam girls, etc) and some other idol groups that was invited to perform there. I basically dont know much of their songs except for Natsu Dane” & “Genki Dane” hahaha. So yeah, nothing much to say about the performance– but im quite lucky enough when Erina Kamiya comes out to perform, she’s always in the right side of the stage — just in front of me…lol . Just a perfect spot for me xD ๐Ÿ˜€ The live itself is very high tho — the wotas just kept on chanting non-stop, and doing wotagei and stuffs — haha. (i can only observe them,which is very interesting to see)

After the live i went to take 2shot with Kamiya Erina (1000 yen) and then Group shot with Steam Girls (2000 yen wide cheki + sign). I think it’s quite worth it, their price for 2shot is very reasonable ! ๐Ÿ˜€


2shot with Kamiya Erina


Group Shot with Steam Girls

So basically that’s about it for the day. Main highlights is the “Tsubomi” event, and my visit to see “Erina Kamiya” at the PARMS Theatre. ๐Ÿ˜€ After the live, me and my friends went to walk around in Akihabara a little bit more until near midnight, before we finally called it a day and walk back to our hostel (not so far from Akiba metro station).

Btw the Capsule we stayed for the night is called “Akihabara Grids”. You can google about it, or wait later as i will try to make a separate reviews for it. Haha. ๐Ÿ˜›


9th August 2016 – Last Day in Tokyo

So finally, my last day in Tokyo ๐Ÿ™ I checked out from my capsule hostel in akiba around 11:00 AM, while my Flight back to Indonesia is very close to midnight at 23:10 PM. So with this 12 hours spare time, basically this day is an “extra day” for me. Haha.

At first, i did checking for some idol related events – but since i already went to PARMS theatre for Kamen Joshi yesterday – i felt that another “Idol” related event would be too much (and #TIF2016 is already overkill for me anyways)… So yeah, today i’m relaxing again – walking around in Akiba for last minute shopping, relaxing at Saizeriya (refill drinks ftw) and stuffs. Bought this Babyraids autographer poster at Trio Shop for only like 2000 + yen, which is quite a steal for me.


Babyraids Autographer Poster by Ricopin ! Yay


Relaxing in Saizeriya with freinds in the Afternoon

After last minute shopping in akiba etc etc, it’s only around 16:00 and i still have much time until my departure back to indonesia. I still have some money left, so i decided to last minute attend this AV event by this AV star called “Hirose Umi”. Before this i actually didnt know much about her — but for the event she is wearing a Bikini (yay) — so it doesnt take long for me to decide to buy the event ticket, lol ๐Ÿ˜€


Hirose Umi AV Event Tickets



Hirose Umi AV Event – 9th August 2016 – 18:00 PM

The event is located at this AV shop (i forgot the name now) but its on the alleyway just opposite the Don Q building in Akiba. The process is a little bit different from the other AV event i went before. I bought the DVD on the 3rd floor of the shop to get my event tickets. After that, around 1 hour before the event i need to trade my event tickets for a “queue tickets”. This ticket is my queue number, and if i guess correctly, they will call you by the numbers when the event about start. And for the queue, we need to wait in the 1st floor — outside the shop/venue.

For the Tsubomi event before, there’s no need to change the event tickets for queue number tickets or whatsoever (basically we just went up for that) so this one is a little bit different. Haha. But since there’s not many people for the event, i just basically go up when the event about to start, and while my queue number is…”Number 1″. Lol. It doesnt really matter anyway when there’s so little people. (only like 5-6 including me!)

My friend later on joined the event also after i finished, and he says that there is like 10+ people in front of him, so yeah, it is a weekdays, maybe people does come late for the event. haha. For the event — it’s still the same as the Tsubomi ones. For 2 DVDS (around 5000yen) i get a Photoshoot with her (20 seconds), signed photos + Free talk session with her, and then finally, a bikini 2shot with her ๐Ÿ˜€ Didnt talk much with her tho as i dont really have much topics to talk with – and she is not as chatty as Tsubomi, lol.

Anyways, here are some photos from the event.


Signed Photo – Front and Back


Hirose Umi Bikini Photoshoots


Hirose Umi 2shots

So that should be that. After the event, me and my friend went to collect our luggage from the Hostel, before going back to the Haneda Airport at around 20:30. Used my last remaining money of 300 yen to buy a sandwich at the combini nearby which is basically my last meal for this Japan Trip lol. Yeah, when i go back to Japan, i tend to use all my remaining money until there’s nothing left (well maybe for some 1 yen and 5 yen coins, lol). ๐Ÿ˜€

23:50PM – *Flies back home to Indonesia* ๐Ÿ™


Closing Notes:

This Year #TIF2016 i think is one of the best ever imo — it’s very tiring but it’s very fun at the same time. Also met up with many friends during this trip, some which i didnt see for a year ++, so it’s awesome to meet them again finally. ๐Ÿ˜€

I did have some regrets though. I didnt manage to see E-Girls at all during this trip. Yep, i know they’re not an idol, but they have a single coming up while im in Japan. Sadly, they don’t really have any releases event while im there- except some TV performance which i dont know how to go to. Lol. And not to mention they have the 2016 Tour in “Saitama Super Arena” which i’m unable to go because it happened to be just one day after my departure date back home. :/ Oh well. E-Girls is not really my luck during this trip.

Also, Babyraids Japan has some kind of “Group Photo” event for their new album release a week or more before my Japan trip. I was hoping for them to have the same thing also during #TIF, but nope…not my luck either. Taking a group picture with Babyraids is seems to be a very rare case, so i’m also sad that i missed that opportunity. The same thing goes for Passcode. Didnt manage to take any 2shot with them during this trip because there wasn’t any. I did handshake with all the members during 2nd Day of #TIF if that’s any consolation. Haha.

Oh well. You can’t have ’em all. For the next Japan Trip Maybe? hahaha. I hope so ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyways, that should be it for my Japan Trip Blog post for this year. Thanks for reading my boring Crap as always xD . Til next time….

~~ END OF POST ~~

Japan Summer Trip 2016 โ€“ TIF2016 Day 3

Posted: August 13, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

So finally…for the last day of #TIF2016 T_T Went out from my apartement at around 9:15 am to go to the Smile garden to collect my wristband. After that settled, i quickly rushed to the Market Place area, hoping to queue for the #TGIF again (lol). ๐Ÿ˜›


Last Day of #TIF2016 finally. Getting my Wristband first at the TGU Booth



7th August 2016 – TIF2016 Day 3

Yesterday i didnt see that much performance since i’m too focused on the #TGIF segment in the morning (lol). Today, i actually “tried” to go again, and once again — the queue for the #TGIF tickets is too damn crazy. Mind you, i actually got inside the Marketplace when it opens at 10:00. But i suppose there are people who queued to the market place before that already — so that they can get inside first. Haha.

At first, me and my friend “queued” for the tickets, trying our luck. But after wasting 30 minutes at the queue without any luck (the queue still damn long by the time we wanted to leave btw) we decided to abandon the queue and moved on for other things. Haha. 30 minutes wasted, but luckily there are nothing much i want to see in the morning. ๐Ÿ˜€

So anyways, no #TGIF for me today!! With that distraction gone (phew– saved me money also xD), i went straight to the “Ship Stage” for non-stop performances, starting from “Palet“. Even though i took pictures with “Riitochan” earlier in the 1st day of #TIF2016, this is actually my first time seeing Palet during this trip / TIF2016. Haha.


Ship Stage is where i will be for the next 4 Hours :O

During Palet, obviously, they sang their new single “Over The Rainbow” and their coupling song “ใƒ€ใ‚คใ‚นใ‚ญใฃ!! ๏ฝžๆ‹ใฎSeason๏ฝž”. Both is quite good to be honest. But the lack of “oshi” in Palet makes me less excited towards them for some reason — (now that Sakimo has Gone :/) Yeah,i took 2shot with Riito-chan – but that doesnt mean she is my fav member lol. I think i dont really have any members i like at the moment in Palet, so im pretty much “casual” towards them now haha. Anyways, here is the setlist from the Ship Stage for Palet.

Palet @ Ship Stage day 3 #TIF2016 setlist:
1. ใƒ€ใ‚คใ‚นใ‚ญใฃ!! ๏ฝžๆ‹ใฎSeason๏ฝž
2. Over The Rainbow
3. Love n Roll
4. Believe in Yourself


Palet @ Ship Stage
(Images Courtesy of Palet Official Twitter)

(Btw, there is not much footage of ship stage at the moment, so i can’t post much images of each performers during all these ship stage segments…haha)

After Palet is done, next is Rev from DVL turn….without Kanna Hashimoto…xD I really dont know any of the other REV members, so it’s kinda funny seeing them without Kanna. I also dont know much of their song titles either, i can only know one song, which is called Step by Step (which i also saw during #TIF2014 Hot Stage 2 years ago, haha). Other than that, their performance is nothing much to brag about i think.

Next up is “Aoyama saint Hachamecha High School“. Seriously, i never heard of this group Before (LOL) so i dont know much anything about the members or even their songs. Right. Ok let’s just skip to Passpo to save me some writing time xD ๐Ÿ˜€

Passpo in TIF is really good when it comes to managing time for their performance. They managed to sing 7 songs with a span of 20 minutes (of course, most of this is only medley/ half songs) but still — a good try. I suppose they’ve been performing here since “TIF2010” so they’re one of the “Old Guards” here with plenty of experience. Haha.


Passpo @ Ship Stage
(Images Courtesy of Passpo Official Twitter)

Passpo begins their Ship Stage performance with a summer song “Vivi Natsu”, followed by their very old songs “La La La ~ Love train“. They also did “Baby Jump” and of course their new single “Bachelorette wa Owaranai” (the only full song for their performance here at the ship stage, haha).

Overall i think it’s quite good setlist- at least its better compared to their Hot Stage or Smile Garden 1st day Performance, imo. xD ๐Ÿ˜€ Full Setlist Below:

Passpo @ #TIF2016 Ship Stage:
1. Vivi Natsu
2. La la love train
3. Baby Jump
4. Himawari
5. Mr Wednesday
6. Cosmic u
7. Bachelorette Owaranai

After Passpo is done. I seriously thinking to move to other stage, because the next 3 performers i dont really know that much — which is “AOP”, “Rocka Japonica” and “Ayumikurimaki”. Well, for the last one (Ayumikurimaki) actually isn’t all that bad — as their songs is quite catchy (to me anyways)…but the other two…ummm ๐Ÿ˜ Somemore, the weather in Ship Stage is really like Hell. Damn hot, direct sunlight, and not much protection from the sun.

But in the end — i choosed to stay all the way until Babyraids x Wasuta, so because of that,i actually had sunburnt (and some part of my skin still actually very dark until the day i wrote this post NOW) Lol. Yeah, i did apply sunblock in some parts of my skin, but i forgot that some sunblock lotion couldnt last that long – and by the time i want to apply more lotion on my skin, i’m already ran out of them. Lol. I wanted to move, but the fact i already got a good spot for the stage (2nd block from middle front, 1st row near the railings) i didnt feel like to move at all. Haha. Oh well. What done is Done. Even though i got a sunburn — i never really regret my decisions though. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

So up next, after “AOP”, “Rocka Japonica” and “Ayumikurimaki” done performing (let’s just skip them shall we xD Not sure what to write about them since i dont know their songs) is….X21 turn to perform. Yay. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

So X21 time to Perform…and guess what…today Miyu Yoshimoto is performing…yay!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ She was missing from the 1st day Smile Garden performance — so im really glad i can see her here. (finally). They sang about 5 songs total — i can only remember the 3 of them, which is “Shoujo X”, “Youki no Parade” and finally, “Natsu Dayoo~ with Miyu Yoshimoto as the center. NICE!!!


..Dont have pix of Miyu Yoshimoto from Ship Stage ๐Ÿ™ T_T So i’ll just use this pix from the Natsu Dayo~ PV ~

Overall, quite happy with the X21 performance today, and i think during the entire performance my eyes locked 100% towards Miyu Yoshimoto lol. After X21, its time for Up Up Girls ~ Kakko Kari to perform. Their performance is damn high as well. for the last song , they also spray water using Water guns, and thrown away water bombs towards the audience. I think the water bomb almost hit my face for around 2 times? But luckily i managed to dodge away a split second before it hit my face. Haha.


Up Up Girls ~ Kakko Kari @ Ship Stage
(Images Courtesy of Up Up girls official instagram account)

After Up Up girls, it’s the “Weekly Young Survival Stage” featuring Festive, Akishibu Project, and Nijicon. I was hoping for all out bikini contest (Lol) but guess i was expecting too much xD (yeah, i blame the #TGIF booth at the market place for letting me see too much bikinis during this #TIF). So, each groups performed about 2 songs, before the MC interviewed them for one more time. In the end — Nemoto Nagi from Nijicon is the one who win the Survival battle thingy. It’s a no-contest imo… can see that Nemo-chan is really confident throughout the entire things – even when the MC asked her question and stuffs…haha.


Nijicon @ Ship Stage “Survival Battle”

After that segment is done, finally for the last part of the Ship Stage (for me, lol…too hot under the direct sun makes me crazy). It’s time for Babyraids x Wasuta collaboration — or we should call it… Baby-Wasuta-Japan…xD

So, Babyraids wears tiger ear (and tails), while Wasuta wear neko ears lol. What a pairing xD. As for the songs, i kinda forgot the exact setlist for this segment (yeah, blame me for not writing down stuffs), but if i remember correctly, during the performance Wasuta was singing “Babyraids” (the song), then babyraids also singing “Juuden Mantan Saturday Night” together with Wasuta. And for the last part, is the Gate of the Tiger x Inu Neko Seishun Massakari remix with both groups performing….hahaha. damn Nice.


Baby-Wasuta-Japan
(Images Courtesy of Babyraids Twitter account)

After the “Tiger vs Neko” match…errr. i mean Baby-Wasuta-Japan performance, i finally can leave the Ship Stage — after 4 Hours under the direct sun. Man i feel like i’m about to melt already !! So i Immediately left right away to find cover under the shelter, and in the end — i decided to go to the Zepp Diver again to refill my water and rest. Haha. On the way to Zepp diver, i can hear 9Nine singing Shining Star from far away…i think from Smile Garden? Lol…But im already too tired + lazy to walk there, so i just head to Zepp Diver to rest.

After resting for 10 minutes (lol…so short) i took a look at my schedule and realized that Hatcheketai (Passpo Subunit) is about to perform at the Festival Stage, which is just ouside Zepp diver. So i went there first to take a look. They sing that Kibun Saikou Saikou song for the last part, while for the first 2 songs they sang, i dont know the song titles (i think it’s not Passpo songs anyway, maybe their original song finally?).

After Hatcheketai finished performing…i went to the Grand Market areas for one last look at the buppan/shops. I mean, this is the last day of #TIF2016, so if i want to buy something else, must do it now! Too bad there’s nothing much i want to buy though — before i finally bump into my friends and he encourage me to take 2shot with Nemo from Nijicon. Lol. Turns out if you’re a foreigners, you can show your passport to the Nijicon staff and you can get one coupon discount for 2shots (usually it took 3 coupons? now only 2 coupons for foreigners who showed their passport). For the coupon you need to preorder something from the tower record booth — i just let my friend do the thing for me and i just paid 2000 yens for the 2 coupon. Hahaha. (dont need the CDs anyways).


My Last 2shot at #TIF2016, with Nemoto Nagi of Nijicon

After the 2shot, i went to rest again cuz i’ve got nothing else to do. Haha. more waiting and rest, all the way until 17:35 — i finally feel like doing something lol~ so i went to the nearest stage, which is Festival Stage, for Wasuta performance. Again, i dont know most of the song titles except for Inu Neko Sessihun Massakari — and this is the 5th time i heard this song during my Japan trip. Hahaha.

With that over with, finally for the last stage of #TIF2016 to visit, which is the Smile Garden stage. Night Time ! Yep, it’s that time again, i feel that Smile Garden is the most craziest during night time, which is why its so much fun. In the last 2-3 years of #TIF i also always finishes my TIF at the Smile Garden stage — so this year should be the same for me lol. The next 6 performers at the Smile Garden stage would be : “Passpo”, “Yumeado”, “Negicco”, “Ayumikurikamaki”, “Babyraids Japan” (wooo!) ,and finally “Up Up Girls Kakko Kari!” + the “Smile Finale Segment”.

Smile Garden Closing Performances:

First up, it’s Passpo turns. They start the performance with “Material Girl” (their trademark songs during #TIF lol), followed by 7″s Up” which is basically their jikoshoukai song. Haha.

They finished the performance with “Pretty Lie”. Overall, the setlist is average at best. I think their Ship Stage performance is much much better ! Oh also, i think this is segment is sponsored by “Calbee” chips, as they keep promoting it throughout the performance hahaha.


Annya promoting Calbee chips~ Tried it btw, and it taste so-so only haha

The full setlist for passpo peformance is below.

Passpo @ Smile Garden 7th August (18:20 pm):
1. Material Girl
2. 7s up
3. Honey dish
4. Jyaane
5. Pretty Lie

After Passpo its time for Negicco, Yumeado, and Ayumikurikamaki (again !! 3 times see them already haha, not that i wanted to tho~) but since i dont know much about both of these groups — i shall skip them straight, since i dont know much to write about them. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜›

So yeah, straight away for the Babyraids Japan Smile Garden final performance. Oh man…about…damn…time!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Babyraids Japan – Smile Garden Performance:

Imo, this is one of the highlights of #TIF2016 for me. The performance is just damn awesome haha. From start to finish- i think it’s an “explosive” performance. I think it’s very clear that they’re officially my favorite idol groups at the moment (taking over from Passpo –like…finally??? xD) And for the First song, they already start with a quite high song “Charinko Idol” from their 1st album, and then followed by “Wahaha” (โ€œใƒฏใƒใƒโ€) — which i got really addicted recently, haha. Then they followed it with Level 1 which is basically their “Jikoushoukai” song (very clever – like that they dont need to waste much time for MCs and introducing themself :D)

Next up is “Cinderalla Ja irarenai (โ€œใ‚ทใƒณใƒ‡ใƒฌใƒฉใ˜ใ‚ƒใ„ใ‚‰ใ‚Œใชใ„โ€)” which is quite fast-paced and high also, before they closing the performance with—yepp..no more guess. My fave song “Yoake Brand New Days”! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›

For “Yoake Brand New Days” at Smile Garden — well what can i say. It’s already a “high” song to begin with– i keep on doing the high jumps during this song, and everyone else is doing it also which makes it more awesome…lol…everyone just can’t seems to stand still xD But the best part really comes like 3/4 of the song, after they do the “Kecha” parts and they start the “Yettaiya” chant. Then Suddenly. LightSticks / UO’s ALL OVER THE PLACE. Yep they thrown them up in the air. !! It. Was. Awesome.




Crazy High Babyraids Performance !! Look at those Flying Lightsticks in the air !! Best #TIF Moment so far for me ๐Ÿ˜€
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Next)

Actually some of the Wotas already done the same thing (throwing Lightsticks/ UO’s up to the sky) during “BellRings Girls Heart” — Day 1 Smile Garden performance, but for some reason, i felt that this one (the babyraids one) is much better… organized? Lol. Dunno what’s the word for it, but it’s just.epic. Haha. Glad i was here for the closing segment, as i enjoyed every second of it. ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh btw, below is the link to youtube clips of the “Lightstick throwing segment” during Yoake Brand new days.




Anyways, the whole Babyraids Japan performance at smile garden is just awesome. After that performance i basically didnt care for the rest of the #TIF already even though next up we still got “Up up Girls” — and then the “Smile garden finale” segment. Haha. But still, to me the “official ending” for #TIF2016 would be the Babyraid’s “Yoake brand new days” performance ๐Ÿ˜›

This is the full setlist anyways.

Babyraids Japan @ Smile Garden 7th August Night Time:
1. Charinko Idol
2. Wahaha
3. Level 1
4. Cinderalla Ja irarenai (โ€œใ‚ทใƒณใƒ‡ใƒฌใƒฉใ˜ใ‚ƒใ„ใ‚‰ใ‚Œใชใ„โ€)
5. Yoake Brand New Days

Yep after that is “Up Up Girls” and the “Smile Garden closing segment”, but i’m just too tired so i just went all the way back to sit down and rest with my friend. Haha. I was too tired to think, but if i remember correctly “Up Up Girls” got sing the “Party People Alien” and then “Uppercut”? during the closing segment.

And also, Dorothy Little Happy (together with Fudanjuku, Kikka, Up Up girls, etc) singing their old trademark song “Demo Sayonara“…haha. It’s been a while since i saw that song Live (well, i didnt care much about DLH after their breakups … basically…Lol).

Anyways, that should be that. The Smile Garden Ending is quite awesome even though i wasnt really paying much attention– But still, what an end to the festival– it was great. ๐Ÿ˜€

Closing Notes:

After all finished and done, me and my friends decided to gather outside Zepp Diver at the Gundam Statue area to take a Group Picture together. All the south/east asian wotas gather together for a Group Picture to be taken…there’s so much of us !!

I think when i first went to #TIF2012, i didnt see that much foreigners…maybe i can count fingers, and the festival back then surely isn’t really “gaijin friendly” compared to today lol. Yep, it’s been a long way since then, nowadays i have much more friends interested in coming along for the Tokyo Idol Festival. Especially after they starting to give away “free gaijin pass” — starting from last year, haha. ๐Ÿ˜› Lets hope they keep this up in the future as well (free gaijin pass xD)

So yeah, this year 3-days-festival i think is one of the best #TIF to date. Of course it is far from perfect, but still good nonetheless. Not sure if i will attend next year #TIF (i always wanted to stop going TIF ever since 2014, but that doesnt seems to work very well isnt it…lol) so let’s just see what happens in the future. Haha.

Til Then, next time. Thanks to all my friends i met during #TIF2016 — it was a blast, maybe (?) we can meet up again next year? Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€


Group Picture after #TIF2016 Ends


Ok…my blog post isnt really done yet…still got the next 2 days left of my Japan trip (8th and 9th of August 2016) lol, but i shall leave that for the next update…haha.

— To be continued —

Japan Summer Trip 2016 โ€“ TIF2016 Day 2

Posted: August 13, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

So here we are, the 2nd Day of #TIF2016. Had a great sleep since we stayed in an apartement and Odaiba — plus, that means we dont have to wake up too early for #TIF, since it’s just a few stations away from our place haha. I think it’s also possible to walk there, but under this hot weather…no.fricking.way. Hahaha. Anyways, began the day with my friends cooking noodles (thx to the Kitchen! so we can cook) for Breakfast, ate it at the balcony while enjoying the Odaiba Views xD ๐Ÿ˜€


Early Morning breakfast at the balcony~ xD


6th August 2016 โ€“ TIF2016 Day 2

After breakfast, went out from our apartement at like,10:00 AM (yeah, no need to rush), and we stopped by to Smile Garden first to collect our 2nd Day tickets. After that, went back straight to the Market Place for the #TGIF2016 Areas.


I secretly taking pix of Staff taking pix the gals during the #TGIF segment.

Now…Remember what i said yesterday about the #TGIF queue? Yep. Maybe on Friday, there isn’t much to queue, but today ? The queue is quite long, and i MISSED the opportunity to 2shot with Jun Amaki on the 1st session in the morning because the tickets already SOLD OUT. Man. Big Mistake thinking that yesterday the queue wasn’t that bad so today i came unprepared…turns out that it was too much worse — and that i should’ve come here much earlier. ๐Ÿ™

Because of this, my first half of the day plan totally changed, as i have to go for the 2nd session with Jun Amaki, which is the “Janken Tourney” session. To remind you, the 1st session of #TGIF is important because its a straight-away Bikini 2shot. No nonsense, the girls already in Bikini. :/ Now that i missed that, i have no choice to go for the 2nd session (Janken one), which luckily, i managed to get two tickets. I dont really like the Janken really, i mean, i know you might get more interaction with them, but you still need to win the Janken before they strip into their bikinis…Lol. We’ll get to more of that later, during the event.


some of the #TGIF 2shot tix Secured!!

Anyways after buying the tickets, i went straight to the Hot Stage for Cheeky Parade. Got in quite late, i think after the first or 2nd song already started, (i think during “Cheeky Fighter?) so i missed some moments there. Besides other songs they sing which i forgot the name. they also sing their latest single “Hands Up which recently just grew on me. Yeah, i still didnt liked it much compared to the other chikipa’s single– but it wasn’t all that bad as i originally thought, lol.


Cheeky Parade @ The Hot Stage

After Chikipa finished at the hot stage, i went back to the #TGIF segment at the Marketplace areas. Yes— the #TGIF is still on my mind that moment – But actually im quite pissed. Why you ask? My original plan is to stay at the hot stage from Chikipa all the way until LinQ, but now that plan been ruined and i need to get out for the 2nd TGIF segment with Jun Amaki. Sooo, because of that, i decided to take more Bikini 2shots with the other girls. Meh. Since i’m already outside at the TGIF, why the hell not. In the end i just googled some of the bikini gals name on the spot and google images them one by one which one (the gravure lol) caught my eye. Hahahaha. Since i dont know them at all, might as well google first xD ๐Ÿ˜€

So in the end i took pictures with “Mai Tsukamoto (she is damn hot in real life), “Reika Shinjo” (so so only in real life), FesTive member Suzuki Mitsuki (I only take with her because FesTive coming to Jakarta on the 20th of August, so maybe take one now just for fun xD) and lastly of course “Jun Amaki”. There are others i want to take, but sadly sold out. So these will have to do.

2shot with Reiko Shinjo During #TGIF2016 segment


2shot with FEstive Member Suzuki Mitsuki During #TGIF2016 segment


2shot with Jun AmakiDuring #TGIF2016 segment

I spent like 1 and half hour at the #TGIF booth and it’s really hot outside. By “HOT” not only the weather, but also the girls over there, standing in bikinis. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Dammit. I wish it was easier to get the tickets for the 2nd and 3rd day of #TGIF, i really dont mind if i took pictures one by one with them Lol. Like i said before — there are some girls i also want also — but the tickets already sold out– or either that, i dont know their names…Lol. Oh well. :/

Also, during Jun Amaki Janken, i just told her that im a foreigner, and i will use “Rock” for my janken. And she actually purposely lose to me, as she use “Scissors” agaisnt my “Rock” before stripping into her bikinis, lol. So yay, simple win. The same thing goes for the 2nd tickets, i told her “Rock” and she use “Scissors”. I guess it’s one of those “gaijin” priviledge? Lol. But she was really nice indeed.

After the #TGIF moments done (Thank God!! i can go back to the Hot Stage peacefully), i went back to the hot stage, and to my horror, the queue to go inside is Damn LONG already..Dammit…and all these because i missed the early morning #TGIF segment and had to go outside from the hot stage to participate the 2nd #TGIF session :/


Super Long Queue for the Hot stage — i think for Team Syachihoko?

So i managed to get in during Passpo but i think by the time i reach inside – it is already halfway. :/ So again, i missed half of the performances (just like Chikipa earlier), and i blame it to the #TGIF segment. But after all these, thankfully – it’s all smooth ride since i can just focus on performances now without thinking much about the market place areas.

Anyways, some of the passpo songs they sing at the hot stage includes “Honey Dish”, “Bachelorette wa Owaranai”, and “Mudai”. Well, at least that’s what i’ve seen anyways.


Passpo @ The Hot Stage

After Passpo it’s BiSH turns to perform. And just as i thought…their performance at the Hot Stage is quite Predictable, which is….none other than Hoshi Ga Matataru Youru Ni” for 6 times in a row !!! Yes, you got that right…SAME DAMN SONG for six times in a row!! ๐Ÿ˜

I mean, 3 times singing the same song is already overkill…but 6 times??? That’s crazy. I mean, it’s still pretty fun, but it DOES GETS BORING after a while. Oh well, it’s BisH. What do you expect i guess. haha


BisH @ The Hot Stage
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Footages)

Anyways, after BiSH finished performing, i managed to squeeze quite in front of the stage for “Babyraids Japan. Maybe like, there’s only 4-5 person in front of me, so that’s quite near already. ๐Ÿ˜€

For the 1st “Babyraids Japan” song is Cinderalla Ja irarenai (“ใ‚ทใƒณใƒ‡ใƒฌใƒฉใ˜ใ‚ƒใ„ใ‚‰ใ‚Œใชใ„”)…i think this is the first time i heard/or see this song live. So i still dont know much about the song that time haha. For the 2nd song they sang their old sold “S.O.K which is quite high song xD. Then they also sing “Baby Kiss” which is quite funny, (especially during the Den-chan solo lines part xD) Man, she is really good in “fishing” fans lol.

The last 3 songs is “Tora Tora Tiger”, “Babyraids” and then lastly…Yoake Brand New Days again !! ๐Ÿ˜€ Woohoo!! The performance is really great, and since i manage to see them quite close in front — it is even better ๐Ÿ˜€ I dont care if i got pushed / squeezed left to right – since i just focused on the performance at the time…so i must admit – i really, really have fun there haha. ๐Ÿ˜€


Babyraids Japan @ The Hot Stage
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Footages)

After Babyraids Japan performance finished, i went to the back areas of Hot Stage to rest and sit down for a little bit lol. Anyways this is the full setlist for Babyraids @ Hot Stage

Babyraids Japan Day 2 Hot Stage Performance:
1. Cinderalla Ja irarenai (“ใ‚ทใƒณใƒ‡ใƒฌใƒฉใ˜ใ‚ƒใ„ใ‚‰ใ‚Œใชใ„”)
2. S.O.K
3. Baby Kiss
4. Tora Tora Tiger
5. Babyraids
6. Yoake Brand New Days

After Babyraids Japan, there is this segment with Mari Yaguchi and Tsuji Nozomi of ex Morning Musume / Mini Moni Members…man they’re now damn old already hahaha.


Mari Yaguchi and Tsuji Nozomi @ The Hot Stage
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Footages)

This segment is mostly talking / MCs though. Basically they bring up a bunch of members of the current idol groups to be interviewed, and most of them actually used to audition for Morning Musume before (i think), and failed….haha… it is quite interesting actually xD They also sing some of the old HalloPro songs like Love Machine towards the end hahaha. There’s also sound problem during this segment so they have to redo the Love Machine song twice haha.


“Dance together” segment with Yaguchi Mari and Tsuji Nozmi @ Hot Stage
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Footages)

After that it’s Wasuta’s turn, and they appears on the Hot Stage with their new (all-black) outfit. Haha. I only know Wasuta’s “Inu Neko” songs, so nothing much to say about their performance here xD


Wasuta @ Hot Stage
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Footages)

Actually during #TIF, i not sure if you can actually take pictures/videos of Wasuta. I mean, no one is doing it (especially yesterday). Today there is someone taking pictures at the front row — but only few people (one and two) and just for a little while then they stopped. Not sure if they actually forbide the fans from taking vids/pix during the performance, because i thought its suppose to be their trademarks? (Being able to take their pix during performance?)..hmmmmm.

Anyways, last up at the Hot Stage for the day (for me anyways haha) is LinQ. Ever since they came to Jakarta, i become quite addicted to them xD ๐Ÿ˜€ Some of the song they sing i can remember and know the name is “Wessai ! Gassai!”, “Supreme” and “Hanabi!!”


LinQ @ Hot Stage
(Images Courtesy of Fuji TV Footages)

After LinQ is done at the hot stage, i went to rest abit at Zepp Diver City Mall while refilling my water at the food court areas. While thinking for my next plan, i actually thought of going to the “Sky Stage” to see “Idol College” (i didnt seems to have any luck with Idol College in the last 2 years of TIF, lol). But it could be a gamble because i dont want to go there finding out that the queue is damn LONG already LOL. So in the end, i gave up and just go for the easy route– which is…the Grand Market Areas Lol.

Just to my luck, today Passcode is doing a free handshake again ! and this time, i’m not to be denied as i queued quite early for it…hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€ Finally manage to handshake and talk with all the passcode members, which is good to me! I can’t attend their Zepp Diver City Live on the 8th of August because i’ve got other things to do (*cough cough* Tsubomis event and PARMS Kamen Joshi theatre). So yeah, this handshake is the last time i seen them during this entire Japan Trip….oh well ~

After the handshake with Passcode members, actually im doing nothing at all. Dont know where else to go so i just rest for a while waiting for my next plan, which is the Idol Sparkling Night segment starring Ebisu Muscats and friends. Bump into my singapore friend who bought me the tickets for Sparkling night (you have to “preorder” the tickets first as its easily sold out…well what can you say. its DOLL FACTORY for god’s sake. So cramped. So little space. And you have to pay additional 2500 yen for it. Lol.). After resting abit more, finally went to Doll Factory for the Idol Sparkling Night Segment.

Idol Sparkling Night @ Doll Factory 19:30

So for the Idol Sparkling Night segment, it is really held inside Doll Factory…lol. But luckily, they removed the “T” shaped stage thingy in the middle to give more space for the audience, so at least we have more breathing space inside this stupid Warehouse. Yeah, out of all the stages in #TIF, i hate Doll Factory the most. They should remove this stage in the future and use other / better indoor stages to replace it. :/

Also, actually i have very low expectation of this segment since i dont know much of the Ebisu Muscat songs. But to my surprise, it’s actually very entertaing. Besides Ebisu Muscat, there is also Marsmallow 3D and also Million Girl Z and some others — and honestly, i thought the Marshmallow 3D’s performance is quite nice also. Haha. I mean…they’re AV idols for god sake…they’re not really suited for singing and dancing xD But i think they’re did quite well as an “idol”.

Also, another kudos for the Host/MC Ijiri Okada— as he is very funny throughout the segment. I dont really understand japanese, but can see the audience loves him so much — especially the segment where he actually went to take a personal belongings from the Ebisu Muscat members — and then “Licked” them “Ijiri Okada” style…xD What a guy. ๐Ÿ˜€


Ebisu Muscat @ Doll Factory
(Images Courtesy of Ebisu Muscat official Twitter)

After all the performance is done (yeah, im “fast forward-in’ — since i dont know the song titles lol) there is a meet and greet next door. You can hi5 with all the Ebisu Muscat members if you buy their goods i think. But too bad there isnt any 2shot options with Ebisu Muscat members as i expected :/ So i skipped for their hi-5 (the queue is also damn long anyways) and went to 2shot with the other performers.

In the end,i decided to queue for 2shot with the Marshmallow 3D members Shinomi Yayuri” and guess what….the 2shot with her is only 500 yen!!, and you can do (well, virtually) any pose you want!! Hahaha. I choose to do the hug pose cuz some people is doing it — and she is okay with it xD ๐Ÿ˜€


2shot with Av Star – Shinomi Yayuri

Besides her, i also want to take pix with other members, then i see the time is getting late (also the queue is quite slow because some of the lines is too long). So in the end, i also missed the opportunity to take group shot with Million Girls Z (for 2000 yen) beacuse by the time i finihsed my 2shot with Marsmahllow 3D, the ticket is all gone already :/ Oh well. That’s just mean i saved alot of money during this segment. Originally i had prepared some “funds” for 2shots just in case Ebisu Muscat got some kind of 2shot or group shot event. Hahaha. ๐Ÿ˜›


Ebisu Muscat After the Hi5 Event in #TIF2016
(Images Courtesy of Ebisu Muscat official Twitter)

After the Ebisu Muscat performance is done, i finally head back to my apartement to rest.~



Closing Note:

For me the 2nd day of #TIF2016 is not as fun as the 1st day of #TIF. Mainly because i got screwed with the #TGIF segment in the morning — resulting me going out and back in to the Hot Stage again (waste so much time there).

Although i only saw several performances today, it is still good — as Hot Stage performance easily gives you 30 Minutes of screen time — DOUBLE than the Smile Garden or other stage performance — so if you see your favorite idols at the Hot Stage, it should be worth it. Haha.

Also glad i managed to get the Free handshake with Passcode this time round, having missing it yesterday (lol). And the Ebisu Muscat performance @ the Sparkling night isnt so bad either. Probably the only bad thing about it, is that you need to PAY the additional 2500 yen, lol.

So that’s about it for the day. Wait up for my next post for the Last Day coverage of #TIF2016 (day 3). Meanwhile, here is my quick summary of Day 2 of #TIF2016

** END OF POST **

Japan Summer Trip 2016 โ€“ TIF2016 Day 1

Posted: August 13, 2016 by InfinityZer0 in Japan!!

Finally. It’s my 5th year in a row attending “Tokyo Idol Festival”, so it’s “Archievement Unlock” i guess? Haha. Just like my previous blog post, i didnt manage to update my TIF moment in real time as i’ve been too busy and too tired to do anything other than “urya oiii” and “resting”. So i’ll try to do my best to recap all the important moments during this year #TIF2016. ๐Ÿ˜›


Will i’ll be at “TIF2017” next year? Who knows!


Hello there gundam statue! We met again this year ๐Ÿ˜€



5th August 2016 – TIF2016 Day 1

The last 3 days, im on a budget mode staying at “Capsule” hotel and “Manga Cafe”. For the next 3days during the TIF period, this time i decided to do something i’ve never tried before – which is staying “INSIDE” Odaiba area ! ๐Ÿ˜€ I know, the hotels area inside odaiba is damn too expensive, but these days we have “Airbnb” and to my luck, we managed to find one quite cheap (BUT GOOD !!) apartement in Ariake (just few stops away from Aomi/Telecom Centre station in Odaba.


The AirBNB place is here

The Apartement cost around 250$++ SGD (?) per nite (or should be around that, i forgot the exact ammount) and we shared it by 6 person, so in the end it became VERY CHEAP! There’s a bad thing though…the owner is not really responsive few days before our check in date- which made us really nervous. I mean, usually before check in the owner will brief you about the location and bla bla bla, for this one, even i have to search the location myself ! Didn’t really hear much about the owner until few days before the check in date (and still – not much details about where we should meet, and vice versa). Not to mention, on his reviews page there are few “cancellation” messages as well ! Ugh…what a gamble.

I also blamed it for my lack of experience using airbnb (and *ehm ehm* lack of budget/save money since we staying 3 nights there), i feel that i should’ve checked in Odaiba one day BEFORE TIF, instead on the day itself. So yeah, much headache on the day itself, we have to carry our luggage inside Odaiba and wait for the owner’s reply. We dont really have any backup plans since all the capsule and hostel most of them already Full since its the summer holidays. I really dont know what should we do if the owner didnt turn up really. Thankfully, it all went well though. Once we reached odaiba, my friend decided to borrow a phone from someone and contacted the owner. Then — thank GOD we finally reach him and we can do an early check in ! ๐Ÿ˜€

The apartement is very good though. Very spacious, and plenty of space for 6 person. 2 of us sleep at the bed, another 2 on the sofas area, and for me and my other friend at the futon. It’s very clean also. Overall, our “gamble” staying here is really worth it ๐Ÿ˜€ We can even hang around in the balcony areas each nights to enjoy the Odaiba views lol.


Our odaiba apartement~! Not bad at all ๐Ÿ˜€ Complete with cool showers/bath tub/kitchen


Panorama View of the apartement

So we checked in to the apartement around like, 830-9am and we just put all our luggage there before heading to the Smile Garden areas to collect our “free/cheapo” gaijin TIF tickets. ๐Ÿ˜€ Oh — another thing. For this year Gaijin tickets, you need to collect the tickets each day at the Smile Garden areas since they only give you daily tickets… Which means — everyday you need to come back there for the tickets. :/ Oh well.


TIF2016 Official began now!!

Since we have to wait the owner early morning and drop our luggage and stuffs. Basically my schedule/plans for Day 1 #TIF2016 changed by a bit. Reached smile garden quite late (around 10am+) so i have no choice to skip the Palet performance at the Sky Stage for the opening act :/ Oh well…this means, another year without “Sky Stage” access again. This is the 2nd or 3rd year in a row that i never went to the sky stage? I also dont remember honestly lol, it’s been a while. Instead of the Sky Stage, i went ahead to the Market Place area for goods.


TIF2016 Marketplace Areas

Friday Morning at the Grand Market area, is too early for me. Some of the buppan/goods isnt open yet and you can see the staffs still preparing their stuffs. One thing i noticed though, that the booth areas for the “TGIF” segment (aka – the bikini fest areas) is quite empty. Not many people there, and you can just buy on the spot without queuing.


TIF2016 #TGIF areas with mini swimming pools…lol

This is MUCH MUCH different later on Saturday and Sunday, where the queue is crazy as hell. My first #TIF2016 regret so far probably, is that i never spend that much time in the #TGIF areas on Friday, because today, there isnt so many people and the queue is much much more relaxed. Somemore, i was at the area for some time — i could easily buy and spam tickets (its only 1000 yen for bikini 2shot — mind you!) and take with each single of them lol. Then again, i dont really know the idols at the #TGIF segment for Fridays…so yeah. :/

Although the “TGIF” Areas is basically a “free show” if you dont buy anything since you can see the idols there wearing bikinis and doing their stuffs…lol…i mean, seeing the fans reaction with the bikini idols there already damn entertaining itself xD Some of them gets too nervous during 2shots and its kinda funny too see hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€ Really too bad that i dont know some of the idols/models name though, because i found some really “sexy” ones there. Oh well.

I was at the Grand Market Area until 12PM (starting from the time i got my wristband), it took much time for me to look around all the market place and remember their numbers for future visits (to safe time). My first performance of the day is actually X21 at Smile Garden!!.


First Performance of TIF2016 for me… X21 At Smile Garden

Yeah, i went all the way back from Marketplace to Smile Garden just to see X21 for 15 minutes….lol. And what’s worse — some of their main members is not performing today :/ Like their captain Miyu Yoshimoto (which is my favorite…damn!!) is not performing, so this performance is abit let down for me. They did their latest single “Natsu Dayo!! which is one of my fave, so yeah — that’s the consolation for me.


X21 minus Miyu Yoshimoto is kinda like… AKB48 without Aachan/Yuko? ๐Ÿ™

After X21, i went to the Doll Factory stage to see Passcode. To my amazement, the queue is pretty damn long (!!) and its only like…12:30PM on the first day ?? (wow, i cant imagine how is the queue when bigger idols gets to perform here later on). I went in first during Ayumikurikamaki performance. Their songs actually not so bad, haha. And in the end, i keep seeing them (Ayumikurikamaki) for like…3 times? During the entire #TIF haha. (not that i want to, but their timing is always near to someone i wanted to see lol).

For the Passcode performance is not bad, they sing my fav song “Club Kids Never Die” and also they sang “Seize The Day”. Also, one of the member “Imada Yuna” is kinda “sick” since she have to stay sitting down most of the time. She still can scream though— especially during the “Club Kids Never Die” part LOL!! xD ๐Ÿ˜€

After that performance, i went back to the Grand Market area for Meet and Greet with the idols. Yeah, i have decided that all the meet and greets and buying stuffs should be done today, so time to get busy ๐Ÿ˜€ I went to take 2shot with Palet‘s new member Riitochan and also Ex BiS Member >Yufu Terashima. For Palet i use mobile phone for 2shot, while for Yufu is a cheki/polaroid 2shot (no sign though).


Event Ticket for Today

The other ticket is for 2shot with Call Me Member Mimori-chan — but that one is at different timing on 4PM. I also thinking to have handshake or something with X21 members since its also at the same timing with “Call me” session, but since “Miyu Yoshimoto” wasnt here today…i decided to save money. Haha. I also bought the Passcode Virtual Tshirt for 3500 yen. It also come with a “2shot” tickets– but for some reason the ticket can only be used for “next” event and not during TIF, which means…well yeah. Not my luck ๐Ÿ˜› Oh well.


2Shot with Palet’s Riito chan


2shot with Yufu Terashima

After the 2shots, i went to the nearby stages to kill some time (Festival Stage) which is just located next to the Gundam Statue and outside the Market area…just nice. I saw StarMarie at 14:05-14:20 and GEM (yay!!) at 14:45-15:00. Forgot the setlist for either two, but i remember GEM Singing “Spotlight” again, lol.

After GEM, i rushed straigh to Smile Garden to see Wasuta. Did a power-walk from Festival Stage to Smile Garden and it took like 7-8 minutes. When i reached Smile Garden, Wasuta already started performing their first song which is Inu Neko Seisshun Massakari” Lol.

You know, in the end i managed to hear that Wasuta’s “Inu Neko” song for like…. 4-5x during this entire Japan trip? xD Before this i only saw the “cover group” version done by a local cover group in Indo called “Lumina Scarlet” (they often do a cover of Inuneko during their performances/events) but this time, it’s the REAL thing allright…and i havent even count the “Babyraids x Wasuta” collabo later on Day 3 (but we’ll get to that later xD) ๐Ÿ˜€

After Wasuta performance, i went back to Zepp Diver City Mall to rest for a while, and also to refill my water. At this time,it’s already like 15:30PM and i only managed to see like, 6 idol groups so far (X21, Ayumikurakimaki, Passcode, Starmarie, GEM, and Wasuta). Haha. I guess i’m waaaay too relaxed this #TIF, i skipped soo many performance in between. I rested for awhile until 16:00PM when it’s my turn to take 2shot with Call Me member Mimori Chan.

After the 2shot, i surprised that they gave us some time to chat with the members for a bit (i was expecting the staff to rush me for the next guy, but nope) so i decided to talk with her for a while. Mimori Chan still remembers me from Jakarta– during the “JMusic Lab” performance back then when “Dorothy Little Happy came” to Jakarta in 2014– so that’s a good thing haha. She say it’s been awhile and some other things i didnt understand (xD) but yea, just straight to the point. I want to have a longer chat with her but i suppose you need to buy a separate handshake tix with that, haha. But overall, had a very pleasant experience with her. So After 2 years, finally can meet her again up-close- and personal. Quite happy ๐Ÿ˜€


2shot with Call Me – Mimori chan

After the 2shot, i bumped with some of my other friends from Malaysia and Singapore, so we decided to rest abit more at the Grand Market areas. To kill some more time, i just hang around and take a look at the “TGIF” booth nearby, checking out for people play water-gun-sprays with the idols lol. I dont want to spend money to play Water guns. Seeing peoeple play is enough xD

Also, im quite late to realize that there is a “free handshake” session with Passcode. Missed it by a small margin only (maybe like 5 minutes?) then the staff cut the queue and wouldnt let anymore people to queue in the line…Damnit. Almost spoiled my day, because i really want to talk to the Passcode members, but oh well ๐Ÿ™ Moving on to the next performance. No time to waste.

Near to 5pm I decided that i should go back to Smile Garden for Passpo and Predia. On the way back to Smile Garden, bumped into some unknown idols giving us flyers. Saw people taking 2shots with them for free also, so i decided to take a free 2shots also…haha. Sorry though — i dont remember her name at all !


Free 2-shot with Random Idols

Continue to Smile Garden. Now for Passpo and Predia. Reached on time just when the performance about the start — i think you can even see me on the #TIF footage when im just about to arrive xD


Passpo Performance at Smile Garden

For the Passpo Performance itself though, the setlist imo is so so only, consist of slower songs which you cannot really chant for most of the time. They did sang “Pretty Lie” though, like they always do during TIF every year haha. Annnnyaaaaaaaarghhhh~~…Oh yeah, they also sing the song “Tracks” minus Mako-chan, and i think they changed the lyrics slighly abit…its kinda sad seeing them perform the song without Mako-chan, so i think they changed the lyrics for a tribute to her. ๐Ÿ™ Oh mannn…

Anyways, here is the setlist for Smile Garden.

Passpo – Smile Garden 5th august 2016 (17:10-17:25)
1. Shoujo Hikou
2. Pretty Lie
3. “I”
4. Tracks (😭😭 no makkochan)
5. Bachelorette wa Owaranai

After Passpo is Predia’s turn. Im not gonna lie that i didnt know some of the song names (lol) but i recognize one song, i think its called “You Slipped Away” ? That one isnt bad. Haha. Did nothing much during this performance other than staring at Maeda Yuu for 15 minutes straight LOL!! ๐Ÿ˜€


Predia Performance at Smile Garden

After Predia, i bumped with some of my friends, so we rushed straigh to the Ship Stage to see 9Nine and Babyraids Japan back to back. Haha. Reach just in time to see 9Nine and their 4 members Line up without “Umika Kawashima” :/ Well, at least Ukky is still there, haha.

For the performance of 9nine they sang one of my favorite song “RE: but….Too bad they didnt sing “Shining Star” though, was waiting for it but it never came. Haha. Here are the other songs they sing during the Ship Stage.

9nine – Ship Stage (18:00-18:20)
1. Re:
2. Darling Darling
3. My only One
4. 9nine festival

After 9nine,is time for Babyraids Japan to Perform. Yay. They start the performance with a slow song “Pretty Little Baby” followed by a towel song “Natsuiro Party“. Haha. After that they sing “Wahaha” which is a coupling song from the (“Senkou Believer” single) which is totally nice actually…got hooked to it, especially during Naosuke’s part where she did the rap and throw away her Hat at the end of it – that was quite awesome xD ๐Ÿ˜€


Babyraids Japan @ The Ship Stage

The last song is definitely the best of the bunch, which is “Yoake Brand New Days”!! I have been waiting this song for a while !! IMO, it is one of their “highest” song, which is why they sing the song almost at the end (for the last song) during Live, haha. In the end, for all 3 days of #TIF i get to see Babyraids performing this song at least once a day. so i am really HAPPY. ๐Ÿ˜€

Babyraids Japan – Ship Stage (18:20-18:40)
1. Pretty Little Baby
2. Natsuiro Party
3. Wahaha / (“ใƒฏใƒใƒ”)
4. Baby Revolution
5. Yoake Brand new Days

Overall, The performance is super high, and i think that this is the BEST moments/highlights of the day for me. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ Made me totally forgot about the “free passcode” handshake i missed just a while ago lol~

At this moment i also started to think that i actually liked Babyraids Japan more than Passpo…uhh ohhhh….maybe my obsession towards Passpo is starting to Fade Away already…i dont know. I just felt that Babyraids performance is much more “fresh” and much more fun. Haha. But i still like Both though….xD ๐Ÿ˜€

Ok Moving on for the last segment of #TIF2016 for me. By this time, its around night time, and my energy is nearly all gone/depleted…LOL. At first i want to stand by for the “Idol Clubbing Night” segment at the hotstage, but at the last minute i decided that i should just go for Smile Garden because i want to see Passcode…yeah. Haha. Still can’t get over the fact that i missed their free handshake >_< Either way, the only segment i wanted to see during the Idol CLubbing Night segment is the Cyber Japan Dancers which didnt really appears until so late at 21:00PM. Haha.

So, time to head for the last destination for the day, which is the Smile Garden. The last 6 performance for the Smile Garden stage would be – Call Me, Lovely Doll, Party Rockets GT, Fudanjuku, Passcode(YAY!), and Bellring Girls Heart.

So, starting for “Call Me” part. I am damn tired already, but i still decided to move quite in front so i can get a closer look towards Mimori Chan lol….they sing my fav song also which is “Step By Step”…nice.


Call Me at Smile Garden

After “Call Me” Performance over, the next one is Lovely Doll performance. I actually went back to the behind areas of Smile Garden during this segment to sit down rest. I think i even went out for a bit to get a free drinks they’re giving away near the TGU booth areas/Info Centre Entrance areas. Haha. The same thing during the Party Rockets GT and Fudanjuku performance. I am too tired already so i just sat down and watch from far far away near the trees area lol…plus, im saving all my leftover energy for Passcode. ๐Ÿ˜€

Passcode @ Smile Garden TIF2016 Day 1 – Night Time

So the time has come for Passcode at Smile Garden, i prepared myself, then rushed myself to go in front/middles area to get a better spot with all the other Passcode Fans. Yeah. I know,i know — going up in front in Smile Garden requires a courage, and it means you ARE READY to be pushed/squeezed/moshed or whatever coming your way — you can’t even complain about it… Because, if you want to be safe in the “battlefield” or so-we-call the smile garden at night, then you better stay at the back and see from far away. Haha. But i’m already prepared for this, so i thought…man, let’s just do this all the way. xD

So the first song starts. And its “Club Kids Never Die”…uhh ok…This is definitely DAMN AWESOME XD I got quite high during this, and so are the other fans. I saw some of the BOND’s (the #TIF security team) got quite busy during passcode to stop some of the fans who went overboard with moshing/pushing and lifting. Hahaha. But still awesome though.

Then 2nd song came. Oh my god. It’s Never Sleep Again which is 2nd favorite Passcode songs…just awesome xD ๐Ÿ˜€ Went quite crazy during this part — especialy when Imada Yuna did her “screamo” parts as usual and again some of the fans went overboard again with lifting and stuffs hahaha… Thankfully i managed to survive in one piece after the end of the song. LOL!! ๐Ÿ˜€

After that it’s the 3rd song which is “Seize The Day”. It’s a much slower song compared to the other two songs lol. But then, during this song there’s this crazy guy with lightsticks all over his body which completely “flew” towards the front part near the end of the song…lol !!! It is quite funny if you see it up-front, especially if you see that he came from all the way to from the back to the front areas…haha ๐Ÿ˜€

So yeah, here is the setlist for Passcode at Smile Garden Night time.

Passcode – Smile garden (20:10-20:25 PM)
1. Club Kids never die
2. Never sleep again
3. Seize the Day

After Passcode, is another crazy group…”Bellring Girls Heart. But since im not really into them, i just went back to the back areas to see with my other friends. Haha. Another crazy performance, and again the fans went abit crazy during some parts, and we can see the BOND’s (the #TIF security team) escorting some of the overboard fans to outside. hahaha. Around the end we can see also some fans throwing Lightsticks up in the air — i think this starting to become a trend already…(haha. tell you more all about it on the last day during Babyraids Japan Performance xD)


Bellrings Girls Heart Performance – Last one on Smile Garden Day 1

When Bellring finished performing, at first i want to go back to the apartement already since im too tired…but then at the last minute i decided that i want to see Cyber Japan Dancers, so i went back to Hot Stage’s too see the “Idol Clubbing Night” Segment haha.

During Cyber Japan Dancers turn — there’s an audio glitch in the middle of the 2nd song haha, so in the end they have to re-do their 2nd song from the start…. which means…more BIKINI TIME!! Hahaha xD But too bad im waaaay too tired already, so can’t do anything much but to enjoy the view…(boobs and ass…xD) ๐Ÿ˜€

Closing Note:

After Cyber Japan Dancer finished performing i just left and go back to my apartement to rest. Man what a day. The Funny thing, when i made the planning/schedule for the 1st day of #TIF2016, it supposed to be boring. But now that i think about it, this day is very happening and there’s so much things going on, and its really fun.

Compared to the 2nd day of #TIF2016 tomorrow, i think this day is much better. Had more fun today for some reason haha ๐Ÿ˜€ As for tomorrow post…i shall leave it for the next post. Believe it or not i spent like 2 hours just trying to write and memorize what happened during the 1st Day of #TIF2016 Lol.

So til the next post…for my 2nd Day recap of TIF2016 ๐Ÿ˜€
