A foreign fan made a fool of herself the other day and truly let the band down. As a foreign fan myself, I feel ashamed.
Aoi on Twitter:
“today’s LIVE was supposed to be perfect. it was, until that moment*, huh.”
“I’m truly sorry! from next time on I’ll be standing at attention to tackle this!”
“what happened today is a secret between us and everyone who was there today. I’m really sorry!”
“today I was feeling really good and I made a hole bunch of strange faces but that thing in the end really put me in a cold sweat, in the style of Inachuu.** aah, I wanna erase that.”
Ruki on Twitter:
“thanks for today, Kanagawa! it was filled with emotions! thank you for coming.”
“a fight over a pet bottle? someone got injured? what happened?”
“I saw the picture, it’s awful…I can’t help but worry if that kid is ok and I really want that other person who forcibly took away the pet bottle to reflect on their behavior. because of this breach of manners the heat of the LIVE is diminished by half. I really want everyone who comes to our LIVES to go home having enjoyed themselves.”

Yesterday during the GazettE’s concert in Kanagawa, a foreign fan attacked and assaulted a Japanese fan. They were both trying to catch a water bottle that Ruki threw to the audience and you know that can be a moment of chaos. I guess we all have been there, stretching our arms as much as possible, trying to focus on the object that comes more and more near and spreading our fingers… but who do actually BITE another person in a situation like this. BITING until it bleeds?
Yes, this is what did happen and apparently the Japanese girl got hurt pretty bad. As you can see on the pictures below, it’s not exactly just a “nibble”… No wonder that Ruki got pissed.
Ruki: “I saw the picture, it’s awful…”
Some foreign fans are worried that this will affect their access to Japanese GazettE concerts in the future. I’s not that easy for a foreign fan to get a glimpse of the GazettE, even though HERESY for foreign fans has made it much easier nowadays. There was a similar incident one year ago. A foreign fan punched a Japanese fan in a fight over Kai’s drumstick. I guess our bad reputation is somewhat justly, even though there are thousands of us – and only a handful make a fool out of themselves.
In one way, I’m not surprised though, ’cause according to me, non-Japanese fans are terrible. There is no manners at European concerts for instance. Going to a concert in Japan is heaven compared to that. Japanese fans show respect. You get plenty of room to dance and breathe even if it’s crowded. In Europe, you rather must fight the concert through and hope you will stay conscious until the end. A concert is for all people there, not for a single person. But still, some fans seems to think so.
I hope this won’t infect the relationship between Japanese and foreign GazettE fans, even though there already are some grudge. I suggest we all do our best to show the Japanese fans that we are as well-mannered as they are – cause we respect the band and hence ALL their fans.
And with this last speech I don’t say that Japanese concerts always is a dance on roses, but let’s talk about that another time.
I truly hope that this won’t affect the GazettE’s picture of their foreign fans. I truly hope the Japanese girl get better soon and that the foreign attacker feel ashamed.
Let’s love the GazettE together in peace!
