September 2015 is a pretty busy month for me in Jakarta. There’s so many events, with some idol groups visited Jakarta this month, such as “Love Android” (for meet and greet event), “Pink Babies” (for AFAID2015 Appearance), and Pop-Rock band “Silent Siren” (for their one-man live concert in Jakarta ! :D) Awesome right~ Here are some highlights of the events~
Love Android – 7th September 2015
Love Android came to Jakarta the first time last May for the “Ennichisai 2015” event in Jakarta, (along with Starmarie, PinkBabies, and Faint Star). This time around, they came alone as a group to do some events in Yogyakarta–and at the mean time, they also visited Jakarta for some Meet and Greet session. Nice rite…somemore the Meet and Greet session only cost 50k rupiah (thats around 500 yen only!!!) very cheap. Haha.
Love Android Meet and Greet Session
There are 4 members for the meent and greet – “Lana Todo, Momoko, Nono, and Ran”. Sena who appeared last time didn’t go because she just had an “ear operation”, which is too bad :/ I already prepared a gift for each member of the group– which is a photo of them i took last time during Ennichisai. But since Sena didnt come this time around, i told Lana to pass it on to her when she go back Japan lol (and she did~! XD)
Sena’s pix taken from her Twitter post xD
Anyways, the event started with “Q & A” session from the fans and also the media. Then followed by a showcase of their Live DVD release, we’re watching it together with the members haha…the only question is how we buy the DVD. Love Android is not really the most famous groups in japan — they’re quite underground that its soo hard to find their singles sometimes, unless you go to their events lol. And talking about their CDs, i was unable to purchase their single during this event cuz apparently all the singles already SOLD OUT during their live in Yogyakarta…damn it. :/
After that, comes to 2shot event and the autograph signing event. I asked all the members to sign on my Love Android Towel. Btw the towel only cost 50k rupiah (which is around 500 yen only ! Super cheap!). And because nobody wants to buy the tshirt they sell at around 200k rupiah (around 2000 yen), the manager then also reduces the price to 50k rupiah (500 yen!) LOL ! I guess they dont want to bring leftover goods home, so they just want to sell all of them as cheap as possible.
I also had quite an interesting chat with one of the members “Ran”. Quite funny that she is actually a “PASSPO” wota also! During the autograph signing, she saw my TIF2015 tshirt, so i told her that i come to japan last month to see TIF2015. Then she asked me “which groups is your favorite there?” and i told her “Passpo”. Then she also replied “Passpo is also my favorite!!”. XD 😀 She later on asked me which is my favorite passpo member and i told her “Annya”. And she say Annya is also her favorite ! xD What a coincidnece~! After some talking, we bro-fist to one and another, and i also asked to take selfie with her (free of charge xD)
Ran funny pose xD
I also took 2shot with Lana and Nono, since the 2shot cheki (polaroid) only cost like 50k rupiah (500 yen, yeah i know, everything is 500 yen here LOL). I choose to do the Kabe-don pose. First pose i asked Lana to “Kabedon” me, then for 2nd pose with Nono, i “Kabedon” her xD Well yeah, i dunno what other pose to take so….there you have it lol 😛
“Kabedon Pose xD”
Overall its quite a fun event, even though i still didnt like some of their songs, but the members are very energetic and very friendly during the meet and greet. I do hope they come to Jakarta again in the future 😀
Silent Siren – Live in Jakarta – 19th September 2015
Silent Siren came back again to Jakarta for the 2nd time within a month – Last month in August 2015,they came here for a free live at the GJUI Event in Depok (outside Jakarta). For this Live, its a one-man Live concert, a proper concert at a proper venue, for a very cheap price too !! (around 150k/300k rupiah for the General Admission / VIP Tickets – 1500/3000 yen).
For the event, i suddenly last minute got a media pass so i decided to cover for the event. I attended the Press Conference with some “Q & A” session. One media asked them “What is the difference between them and Scandal who last time also came to Jakarta”. Hinachu Replied that their songs sounds more “Pop” while Scandal songs are more into “Rock. Also one media asked if the members can cook (lol, what kind of question is that, i also dont know xD) then one of them replied (i forgot – it’s either Hinanchu or Suuchan) that they can’t cook. LOL.
Anyways here are some pix from the Media Conference
Look at my camera more suuchan~ xD
The concert begin around 19:00 PM and since i entered as media, i was allowed to take photos during their first song, which is “Kakumei”. After that first song, all the media have to move to the back if they want to see the live, so i did stay at the back until the end haha.
Btw, The fans also given an “LED Wristband” that can change colors automatically at the same time — i think its quite damn cool when it happes during the concert haha… They have to return the wristband again after the concert though xD Here are some pictures from the concert.

Pink Babies @ AFAID2015 – 25th – 27th September 2015
Just like Love Android earlier this month, PinkBabies also returned to Jakarta for apperance at the Anime Festival Asia Indonesia 2015 😀 😀 They didnt perform at the anisong main stage though (only some segment with JKT48 at the main stage before the Anisong live), and some mini live performance at the “Cool Japan World Trial” booth, which is really small lol. But anyways, it doesnt matter how big the stage is, as long i can see them perform, its quite allright for me xD
Pinkbabies are supposed to perform also on the 1st day of AFAID2015 (Friday 25 September 2015), but they cancelled that out. They later on appears on the booth in the afternoon though at around 18:00 for some photos session.
On the 2nd day of AFAID2015 (26th September 2015) They appeared 3x times at the Cool Japan Mini stage (performance at 3 different time slots – 11:00, 16:00, and 18:00)…That’s 3x performance a day !! And they perform for a full 30 minutes too xD 😀 Not bad for a mini live eh? Here are the setlist for the 2nd Day.

Each session has the same setlist btw…and here are some pictures from the ministage performance xD 😀
They also appeared at the main stage activites segment (Not during the anisong segment though) together with JKT48. One JKT48 member Haruka Nakagawa says she like Pink Lady songs last time, and her group “Watarirouka Hashiritai” Last time from AKB48 also got perform Pink Lady songs once…duh, i forgot the name now haha. The pinkbabies member later wrote on their blog that they respected Haruka and how she can speak “fluently” in Indonesian language now, which is amazing lol.
Anyways, here is the Pink Babies Main Stage 26/09/2015 Performance setlist:
M01. ・ウォンテッド（指名手配） (Wanted)
M02. ・ペッパー警部 (Pepper Keibu)
M03. ・渚のシンドバッド (Nagisa No Sindbad)
For the 3rd day of AFAID2015, they performed only with 3 members cuz 2 of the members got sick apparently (Yui and Aina) 🙁 They also reduced the songs they performed to 6 songs per session (they removed “UFO” and one other song i forgot the name- from the setlist), and they also cancelled the 11:00 morning session…so its left only the 16:00 and 18:00 Session
3 Members only for the 3rd Day of AFAID2015
Even though they performed with only 3 members during the 16:00 and 18:00 session, they still perform quite energetically, even though some of the blocking dance seems kinda weird and they did make some mistakes here and there- but they did their best haha. In their blog they also got mention that its the first time they performed with only 3 members only in public…so they have no choice i guess.
After the last session (18:00) ended, the Pinkbabies staff gave away FREE PINKBABIES POSTER and some of the lucky ones got autograph in it !! (for free!) 😀 One of my lucky friend got Yukarin’s one haha. Not bad. They also dont mind if you ask them to take selfie picture with them, they even pose for you, which is quite a nice gesture 😀
There are 2 Pinkbabies member i really like now and that is Yukari and Yui. Strange, when they came to jakarta the first time for Ennichisai, i went to take 3shot with “Rio” and “Yukari”. But for some reason nowadays i liked Yui better than Rio LOL 😀 Which is my #1 favorite member though ? Who knows…im a DD. xD
That’s all for now for this post. I do hope more idols come to Indonesia (especially Jakarta) in the future 😀 And for bonus last picture – Here is Yui of PinkBabies kneeling down before you 😀
