#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 😀




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 !) 😛

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 16期研究生, 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) 😛


Now because of these groups, i can safely say that this year TIF will be packed as hell ! 🙁 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 😛 😀 😀 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 😛




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 😀 I have also mentioned on my previous blog post that Passpo has dropped in my order list of my “fave idol groups”. 😛 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 🙁

Passcode – Damn you

Speaking of Passcode, They have events during the actual dates of TIF2017 which really makes me sad. 🙁 🙁 🙁 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 😀




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 !!! 🙁 Why can’t they put them on different dates. 🙁 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. 😀 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). 😛

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! 😀 😀
