There are a lot of things I want to say about the L’ArCasino live viewing but I don’t know how to organize these fangirl thoughts. So allow me to list them instead.
1. On Pieces
When I heard a co-cieler said: “It’s already the last song!”, I felt sad because I don’t want it to end. I still want to see more of the boys. And at the first drop of yukihiro’s drum, I gasped: “Pieces!” Then, I could no longer help my tears. All of my emotions for that day, the highs and lows of my trip from Cebu to Manila, my worries about my expenses… all of them formed into one feeling: HAPPINESS. I can almost feel the next world tour!
2. On the setlist
Heavy throwback! Day 2 was DAMN AWESOME! Oh the feels! We missed hearing these songs performed live.
3. On the concept and stage
Grand, as usual! Something that we always expect from L’Arc~en~Ciel (probably). The props are really cool and luxurious. Casino, indeed. The car and the dancers. Hyde’s props too: the cockatoo (that was hilarious!) and his glowing,rotating, shooting, cane-slash-mic holder. The L’Arc money and many more. I love them all!
4. On yukihiro
You are such a bias breaker! I found myself screaming whenever the camera focuses on you. We can’t describe our feelings when you sang Trick with them. It’s very rare to see you holding things other than your drumsticks whenever you’re with Laruku, so we really loved it when you sang on your live performance. I also love how you played around with your drums. And your smiles! Oh dear, your very adorable smiles!!!
5. On tetsuya
You’re a first time daddy and I understand the heavy-looking eyebags, the dry skin and the clothes. You may look like you just woke up from a very stressful night with your baby but your energy and stage presence is still undeniably great!
6. On ken
Your solo sounded like it went nowhere but it still left me speechless. All the guitar parts have made me do nothing except closed my eyes and listen to you. I love you! I also had a couple of echii thoughts whenever the camera focuses on your guitar. I was thinking about the thing behind it. I hope you don’t mind. hahaha! But baby, you remained classy with your clothes! Oh so sexy! Please keep that style, okay?
7. On hyde
Dear, we love you to death and after that and back hundred times! Your air, finger and mic lickings drove us crazy. Your smiles too are so lovely! You’ve been smiling frequently during this live. Why? Dear, we heard what you did with Pretty Girl. hahaha! But don’t worry. You’ve written and performed a LOT of songs and it’s understandable that you may forget or mess up with the lyrics, not to mention that it can also be a sign of aging. 😀 Although, we will not believe that because you’re looking younger and younger. Your little childish tricks too have made us laugh until our stomachs ached. On the other hand, I was really worried about your voice. You sounded like suffering while singing the higher notes. You tried to whistle and it was good but you still made me worry. Specially when you start to growl instead of sing. You also look very thin. I am so worried about your health. But don’t be sorry, you still got it! Just take a rest. I wish to hear you sing Jojoushi on the next world tour like how you sang it during the 2012 World Tour.
8. On Trick
Grand slam! All of them on guitars and vocals. We really went frenzy on this part. We love every bit of it and Revelation too! Actually, we love every part of the live. 🙂 xxx
