October 3 Birthday Boys

Tetsuya Ogawa

Tetsuya is the bassist and leader of my favorite Rock band; L’Arc~en~Ciel. He was born on October 3, 1969. His name is stylized in 2 ways: TETSUYA (when he’s on solo) and tetsuya (with L’Arc~en~Ciel).

Tetsuya started his solo projects in the name of Tetsu69 around 2001 during the band’s hiatus. He is known for having a poppish music style. I also know him as a person who loves to add a pop of color – or more when he dresses up. I describe his fashion taste as colorful and playful.

After watching the documentary film Over The L’Arc~en~Ciel, I can say tetsuya is a hands-on leader who plays with the members of the band very well. He’s also sweet and supportive towards their solo careers. He’d send flowers to VAMPS and HYDE to show his support on hyde’s solo projects.

Throughout the film he’d been chill. At the 20th Live Concert too he’s been caught teary eyed at the end of the concert while fireworks are exploding in the skies. Perhaps, he gets too emotional when he realizes how much he and the band has achieved. At the 25th L’Anniversary too, my heart melted when he and hyde hugged after his Mukimpo throwing part. It was such a scene that any L’Arc fan would really get super emotional.

Boyang is a Chinese Figure Skater born on October 3, 1997 and started skating when he was seven. He debuted on Junior Grand Prix in 2012 where he finished 5th at the JGP Final and then 4th place at Worlds. Boyang started his Senior career in 2015 when he finished 2nd and the first to land on a 4Lz3T and 4Lz with a positive GOE. His achievements also include the first skater to land four quads in one free skate. No wonder why Yuzuru himself admire this kid.
