This will be a fangirl/groupie-post. So you’ve been warned. I’m not ashamed of being a fan-girl – that’s who I am. Love me anyway, or leave me alone. ^^ ♥
This was a pretty spontaneous decision of mine… triggered by a friend who gave me a tip concerning Finnair’s current special offer when it comes to travels to Asia.
I’m going back to Japan in November/December (24/11 – 02/12)!!!
Last time I visited Japan was back in 2009… There’s been three years… such longing…
The reason why I decided to travel that specific week is because The GazettE has a tour (LIVE TOUR 12-DIVISION-GROAN OF DIPLOSOMIA) and will perform in Tokyo Nov 28th and 29th. My mission in other words is to attend to any of these shows.
The GazettE, a band I’ve adored for so long… and never got a chance to see live.
A dear Japanese friend of mine can help me get my hands on one of these tickets, but they aren’t released yet. I have to wait to September. I cross my fingers, ’cause there are risks.
Maybe they will be sold out too fast. Or maybe I won’t be let in any way since I’m not Japanese. The GazettE is very loyal to their Japanese fans and never perform outside Japan these days. I’ve also heard that there might be some trouble for oversea fans to get to their concerts in Japan, so I must check things up… (or make a fake id, pretend to be Japanese…)
The GazettE are such a big thing to me so I can’t describe it in words. Yes, my fangirl-ism shines through pretty heavily here, but I’m not ashamed at all.
I would do anything – I mean – ANYTHING – to see them live. OK, ALMOST anything.
Pretty much anything…
What I’m trying to say is – yeah, I’m pretty obsessed when it comes to the GazettE.
I don’t know if I’ve ever heard a bad song made by The GazettE. And they’ve made a lot of them. Even though I prefer their old a little bit “punkrock-ish”, raw, melodic, dramatic sound, I love the way they evolve as musicians.
Now I have some planning to do, ’cause I will only be able to visit Japan one week and there’s plenty things I want to do.
I want to travel to Osaka and Shizuoka to meet two friends of mine.
And then there is the GazettE show of course… in the middle of the week. :-S
And then I wan’t to explore Tokyo further. Go to maids cafe’s etc. Things I didn’t do last time.
And some things I DID last time. I just have to return to Akihabara and Harajuku. ^^
I don’t think I’ve fully understood this yet. There’s a lot to process. But sometimes I’m glad that I can do spontaneous choices, ’cause they are mostly the ones that makes my life so rich.
One part of me is very scared. I will travel alone in a country which language I can’t speak and I can’t assume that the inhabitants speaks english.
I’m scared of seeing the GazettE live. What will happen in my head when such a big dream comes true. Won’t I have any goal in life after that? Will life be pointless? (At least feel like it.) Will I do something stupid? I’m such an emotional, complex person and I can’t always trust myself.
Yes, I have a lot of processing to do.
I made the following video back in 2008. It’s my favorite clips from the GazettE tour “Nameless liberty six guns”. The music is Miseinen Instrumental version. Miseinen is a song I’ve been babbling about A LOT on this blog, since it means so much to me. It’s the theme of my life.
No, there’s no words for it.
