06. Inside of me
This band is just so good live ! From the very fist second to the last, it’s very intense and powerful ! Masato is an extremly good singer, from high pitch notes to screamo, it’s very impressive !
Great musicians, the guitarists Sugi and Yokoshi are so good, I particulary remember a very impressive solo guitar of Yokoshi !
RxYxO is my favorite member so i watched him a lot ! It’s funny how he can be extremly cool (sometimes scary) and then go all cute in a second haha ! He moves a lot and is very playfull witht the audience ! (at the end of the show when they left the stage, he came back alone on the stage just to give something to a fan in the front of the audience, i guess they had their little moment during the live)
Masato doesn’t move much, not sure if it’s still because of his foot injury of last year or if it’s just his way of performing. But he’s 200% into what he’s doing, headbanging, pointing at the audience fiercly, hardcore headbanging and sing like a god.
Well, because of Masato i couldn’t take much good pictures of Katsuma haha but because I like to watch the face of the drummers when they are playing (it’s always so funny) I can tell you he’s making intense faces, as intense as his way of playing ! Very good drummer !
I won the free entrance for this show, I only attended coldrain’s part (they played first) because tbh i am not a fan of bullet for my valentine, so I then went out of the venue to be able to meet them.
We were 4 fans waiting, We were not sure if they were going to go out from the backdoor or the front, in a car or not, so we were like let’s just wait and see. Then i saw a blond guy, at first i didn’t really realised who it was but i thought, “woah, what a cute guy”, then I started realising it was actually Masato and the band + 2 staff.
They are all sooooooooo shy !
shy fans + shy band = awkward kind smiles haha
We started to say thanks for the show, and they begin to sign our albums. I told Masato to comeback for a proper show next time in paris and he said “yeah of course ! We wanna do a longer show here”, the fact that he said “longer” made me realise that they really want more so it makes me happy !
The other members didn’t talk much, just saying thank you, but all really nice, answering to the one fan who could talk japanese a little. They were all concerned by us even tough they couldn’t understand everything we were saying.
RxYxO is just too cute, he was so concentrated to sign the albums properly lol, the staff even gave him some light with a phone haha
I had my Ollie Magazine in my bag, the one with Mah & Masato on the cover, so i went to him and said “I have a special request, can you sign my magazine too ?” and he made such a priceless surprised face when he saw the magazine saying “Woah ~~”. That was too cute. (he was so close, he has such a soft skin lol)
Tbh Masato is probably one of the most handsome celebrity i have ever met o_o
We took some pictures with them and after a little chat they told us they had to go. They crossed the road at the red lights running like bad children lol
