I went to their concert in Shibuya O-East on the 2012/02/24

It was so cool!

The only thing I’ve ever found to complain about Fudanjuku is that they don’t change costumes as much as I’d like (I’ve been spoiled by the Johnny’s), and this time they changed 5 times in 1h30!

Costumes: Kaze ikki’s, (yankee jackets for Uraren), Love spider’s, suits! they looked great in it, I want pictures!, a new pirate-y one, tour shirt.


I already can’t remember the setlist properly but I’d say:

Kaze Ikki, 17’s star, Boys love, Kimi no monogatari (I love this song!), Soushoku lion, Kojiro and Kensui dance number, Katsunda, Accoustic versions of Ii otoko and Kaze ni notte (Koki solo =D ), the presentation song (can’t remember that name), Otokozaka, Onaji jidai, My hometown, Kizuna.

There were little sketchs and videos in the middle, like Uramasa fighting a chair or Renji and Kojiro being hosts in a video game.

I liked their enthousiasm on stage, especially Kojiro, Uramasa and Kensui.

Btw, omg Kensui. Great voice, great dancing skills, ability to look cool (in a manly way) while dancing, visibly enjoying being there, and he cried at the end! I still like Koki better (especially since I spent the month before in Fukuoka - I swear it makes sense.) but I was really impressed!



The public was a bit strange in my eyes. I’m not surprised at the amount of lightsticks in the assistance (it keeps you from clapping though!) but when basically everyone knows all the appropriate hand gestures and answers for every song, you’d expect the Encore calls to be very strong and start as soon as the members leave the stage, not to be as weak as they were here! Some people around me, wearing tour shirts and carrying lightsticks, didn’t even clap =O

After the concert ended I bought something in order to got to shook their hands. They all have tiny, tiny hands, and that’s saying a lot coming from me since people always say that about me.

Renji managed to give me a きゅん~ feeling just by holding my hand instead of shaking it and looking me in the eyes and saying “またきてね” in a pure host fashion xD The worst part is that I get the same feeling now when thinking about it xD

I should have said “Merci” to all of them instead of the basic ありがとう, but I only thought about it for the last in line. Uramasa’s reaction was awesome:

- Merci!

- あ、すごい! ドイツ?

…close enough! xD

I really hope they’ll make it big <3

Like to ask a few questions. Hope you or somebody can answer.

Last month you went to watch them, it's free seating right? So did you manage to get front row?

Do the Japanese people queue on the day itself or some of them queue few days in advance just to get front row.

Because in my country, if its free seating, people tends to queue one day before hand. And from what I saw, Japanese people are really harcore fans who will do anything just to secure front rows.

Sounds like you had a great time! I really really wish they would release that concert on DVD, it seems like it was so different from usual and full of amazing stuff (would kill for that Kouki solo...)

Maa-kun xD Close enough, eh? Gyahahaha.

Jep:

Usually their concerts are all standing only, but the tickets have an entrance number, so you can only enter when your entrance number is called.

I had a great time, even though I was a little sad to be all by myself. I couldn't get really excited like that ^^"
I really wish they would release it!
How is it usually? The only other concert I saw was NFS"s last concert, on niconico. Is it usually more like that? So, only songs?

Jep:
I came in late (I came back from Fukuoka especially for it), only 15mn before the concert started and the doors had been opened at least 45mn earlier, so I don't know about entrance numbers. The girl where I bought my ticket called to know if there was a meaning to the number on the ticket and they basically told her that there wasn't any.
It was standing only (except for the VIP part I think?). I didn't go to the front row because I didn't dare to go through the people who were already in front of me, but I could have done it quite easily. I wonder why I kept thinking there would be an intermission and people would move and I could go there without bothering anyone... of course there wasn't any intermission ^^" I regret not going a bit further but at the same time I would have felt weird standing right in the middle of the part of the crowd who clearly knew all the furitsuke by heart ^^"

And the room wasn't full enough to warrant queuing days in advance. Beside, I don't think it'd be allowed to go camping in the middle of Shibuya xp

Yes, it's usually more like their last concert, but with different things in the middle instead of the new members' prank. Skits, etc. One of the ones I went to did like a fake '80s music TV show in the middle with solos from Kyouhei & Uraa, Segway & Renji duet, etc. in order to give them time to change.

They call you by entrance number when the doors open, but of course you're free to move around once you're inside, it's just how much you're willing to get dirty looks from people who were ahead you xD

Thanks for the info. So it's the entrance number that is important whether you are standing in front or back row. I definitely wish to stand in the front as I'm short (only 155cm).

I came back from their 22 Nov 2012 concert. It was great! But I didn't expected they sold about 600 tickets to fan club members. By the time I got in, I was standing right behind. But even though I was behind, the stage looked close to where I'm standing. Only problem is, there's many heads blocking my view and thus I didn't really quite enjoyed it. After the concert, there's handshake event. The staffs kept pushing fans to quickly moved on. So I didn't get much time to speak with them. I only managed to tell a few members that I'm from singapore. One thing that surprised me was Koki. I went to Hong Kong this yr to meet them. I didn't expect anyone to remembered me after 4 months. But Koki DID remembered me from Hong Kong. I was happy. She has a good memory. Am hoping she will remembered me, always Very Happy

By the way, the photos that they hung, it was not arranged accordingly. I thought I could get all the members for each different photo sets they have. In the end, I have many duplicated photos. Is there a method or ways to "pick" up the photos that we want?

Also do anyone here knows any fans in Japan who is in the fan club? It would be best if we know someone in the fan club and he/she is willing to buy for us.

I'm planning to go again in 2-3 yrs time.

Oh, that's too bad! I understand being too shy to try and get further in front though >.<
I hope you had fun though=)

I don't understand what photos you're talking about but it gives me an occasion to ask you some questions: can you tell us about the goods, and the way they're sold?
When I was there there were only few of them, and most of the things sold were CDs and DVDs. It was sold after the place where they check your ticket so you had to have a ticket to buy goods.

I'm asking because I have a friend to whom I could ask to go buy goods at their next date, but she won't go see them (she's constantly broke) so she won't be able to get inside the concert hall... so I'm hoping they changed the way they sell it ^^"

As you can guess, I know no one in the fanclub~~

For this time round, the merchandise started selling at 3pm before their concert starts. All these info will be posted at their official blog. Do check it out one day before the concert date. Items that were being sold will be posted too. So if your japanese is not that good, you may have problem understanding it.

Items sold were: mirror, muffler (small towel), scrunchie (tie up your hair thingy), waist band, photobook, photos, etc.

You can pre-order their out coming single with tower records staffs. Or is it hmv? Sorry I forgot.

Their layout: 2nd floor at shibuya o-east
Left corner, is tower records. This is where u pre-order singles/cd. Think u can buy their current cd too.
In the centre, this is where u buy their merchandise. After purchase, they will issued u a handshake event ticket.
Right corner, is where u buy photos.

For photos is that, they will display different photo sets. Example: Butler photo sets, fu-ranger photo sets, etc). Whichever u want, u just tear it down. But like I mentioned above, its not arranged accordingly to members, even though they hung it like bunch by bunch.

Hope this answer your question. Sorry I can't remembered if they check ticket before letting fans in to buy merchandise but my guess is they didn't. Because I went in the 2nd time and I remembered they didn't check my ticket.

Last but not least (to those fans who want to see their concert), we have to purchase a drink ticket when we were about to get inside the concert hall. It's a compulsory thingy and it cost 500yen.

This scenario is only at shibuya o-east. If it's at other places, the setting may be different.

Thank you very much! That's very informative =) Now I'll just hope that they'll have another date at Shibuya O-East (or at least in Tokyo) as soon as possible!

Oh they have. You didn't check their official blog site? The next one is on christmas day itself, 25 Dec 2012. They have another event on that day too but only fan club members and only ladies can go. For next year, their 1st concert will be on 13 Jan 2013 at Osaka.

Anyone planning to go to Osaka to see? Don't know if kensui sis will be as special guest again. I want to go but as for now, no money Crying or Very sad

I did but apparently I can't read! Or can't remember stuff. Sorry~~
Speaking of money (and of me unable to read the blog), I don't think I've seen the goods prices? Though I'm getting way off the topic's subject here...

For latest merchandise goods, there's a posting of it on 21 Nov 2012 in their blog. Normally, they don't post old merchandise info and price. So for 22 Nov 2012 (new) merchandise, T-shirt cost 3000yen, mirror cost 1200yen and scrunchie cost 1500yen.

From what I noticed, T-shirt is always 3000yen and 1 piece of photo cost 150yen.

So if you are getting other items beside t-shirt and photos, you roughly estimate the cost of other items. That's what I do before I go to Tokyo.

You said you wanted to get your friend to help you buy some merchandise. I think getting a t-shirt will do. And if you do collect photos, then tell your friend to get the latest one to avoid confusion whcih one to get for you. Like I mentioned above, there's butler photo set, fu-ranger photo set, Ame Tokidoki Hare nochi Niji 2 types of photo sets (they dressed all white suit, just that one photo set has members carrying an umbrella and the other one is just poses) and their latest otoko photo set.

I'm sending u a PM. Cause I don't think its suitable to post in here. Do take a look at your PM.

Ok I went to their shibuya concert last week, 31 Aug 2013. Like always, they would post up items costs and whatever event that is going on that day in their blog. Like Siria, I too dun know Japanese that well. But lucky there's google translator (or other website that helps translate).

I was a bit disappointed because there's no photo and handshake event like what they had in  other region during their tour. No special performances too. Had I known earlier, I would go to Osaka one. Nevertheless, this venue is better than Shibuya-O-East. It's bigger and I like the seating cos its ascending type. This time round, I can see better, despite 2 rows in front of me, those big tall guys did slightly block my view. But just slightly.

I forgot to look at my watch but my guess is they performed 3 hours. They did show video clips of their special performances, so they have the time to change. I'll give a brief description what each members did during this year tour. Kouki played guitar, Momo played piano, Uramasa wrestle with a vacuum cleaner, Ryoma did ballet dance, Kyohei drew art on the spot, Kojiro and Kensui mimic UraRen's Boys love. Tokyo was their last destination of their tour. And they mentioned in their blog that they rehearsed hard for their final show. So I thought probably I would get to see all members special performances. It's a shame none of them did any for last leg.

Some of u might know, Renji due to poor health, after Hiroshima concert, he was hospitalized. Therefore he didn't participated in any concert after that. But he turned up at the final concert during encored and sung Kizuna together with all the members. At that time, we (fans) thought Renji has come back.

Well that's the end of the concert. Oh yes, for those who have friends staying/working in Tokyo (or other places in Japan), you dun need to show ticket to buy their merchandises. Anyone can just go and buy. Hopes this answer to anyone here who wants their friends to help them buy stuffs but not seeing concert.
