mou ikkai, mou ikkai  
Woo! I finished one! This is for aegistheia, who suggested I flail over LIFE ~me no mae no muko e~ in my last post (which people are still free to add to)! Thank you for the excellent topic, this was a fun one to spam! LIFE is one of my three favorite singles that have come out since I entered the fandom. As it didn't seem too tough to do a couple of these, I decided to cap it and everything. :) And also this is a little bit for Tee, who got me revved up with her piqued interest in Eito. :D

Kanjani8's LIFE ~me no mae no muko e~ from MS 2010.08.27




Watch it streaming here or download it here!

I picked week two of their two consecutive weeks of playing this on Music Station! One of the things I really love about the pattern of playing band songs twice on Music Station is that you can really see them improve with time! Just the previous week they were much shakier but this time everything has really come together. And when you later look at the tour, they seem even smoother! I think this is something really characteristic of groups that are a band, they really need time together to get everything to gel. Getting everyone in one place to practice is probably hard for Johnny's but it's fun to watch it pay off. I get really invested in their progress. :)


Aw, Eito, eyes on the drummer to count them off. :D



SWITCH ON. Ohkura is the BEST person behind his instrument, okay! He is so smiley and so happy, all the time! So lucky he met the drums, you guys! ♥



Subaru and Ryo are being so charismatic and awesome but I'm still watching Green back there. :) (Also, A++ rainbow bracelets on that Eighter!)


Hina is already working too hard to find the camera. ♥ Ahaha, I love that they talked about that at the end of the year. HE LOVES THE CAMERA SO MUCH BUT BAND SONGS REQUIRE HIS FULL ATTENTION. :DD


Meanwhile Yoko's concentrating face has quickly turned into his smug lip-bite so we know he is doing well. ♥


MARU-CHAN, CUTEST PERSON ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH. ALREADY.


Maruuuuu, also a badass! Band!Eito, I loooooooove you!!


I see pink and leopard print and a ring and already I am very happy with my life.



YASSAN, NEVER CHANGE. ALSO YOU ARE LOOKING FINE TODAY.


ROCKSTARS. The crowd is SO HYPED, as one would be when you're seeing them in such a tiny venue as Music Station. :DD


For once, it's Maru-chan's pants that are the ones perplexing me! Yasu pants: totally normal shorts! Maru's pants: maybe jean culottes! ♥


Dawwww, Ryo and Yasu looking at each other to stay together. :)


Baru is being so awesome and yet Green's "do do do doo~" is still distracting me. XD



MARUUUUUU~ I LOVE YOUR PART~~



Ryo, you are looking very pretty and singing quite well today. ♥


YES.


Intense Maru + bass feelings, as per usual. :)



Oh my gooooooood, Eighters, you are the most adorable people!! Everyone here looks so happy and colorful, I was just grinning looking at their delightful faces. :DD


Yasu's tongue: spotted.


And he knows it. :P


Nrghhhhhhhh GLASSES. *____* Yasuda Shota, never too busy mug for the camera. :DD


…Hina, still hard at work! ♥


Making the intense singing look good, Ryo-chan!


Same to you, dimples! :DD Augh, that cartouche necklace is killing me. :DD



HAHAHA, I love how Yasu just does not restrain his face at all during band performances. ALSO I REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS VOCAL PART. I always dig Yamada parts. :) I know their voices are similar but they are also both great. ♥



RIDICULOUS!! Ohhhhh, I loved his hair like this! Ohhhhh, so pretty! Ohhhh, nerdy glasses will never not be the best thing on you! (Except maybe piercings. And stuffed animals as hats. :P)


I'm determined to include every shot of Hina working hard. XD


ROCK ROCK ROCK ROCK.


This cap makes me really happy. ♥


They all seem very them here. :)



YOUR FACE MAKES ME VERY HAPPY. ♥


This looks like the panel of a manga to me. DRAMATIC BLUR LINES!!



All teeth and blue glasses and gold earring and love to me. ♥


BONGOS. :DD


You are a very pretty person, Mr. Professional Bongo Player. :)


Seriously, Tacchon photobombs caps with his sheer joy. :DD


RYO-CHAN


And yet he still manages to look slightly creepy-eyed mid-performance. XD


UGH, YOU ARE CAUSING SOME INTENSE FEELINGS RIGHT NOW. That outfits is so him and his hat and his Chrome Hearts necklace and his beloved guitar. SUBARUUUUUU! *___*


A spam cannot be complete without a cap like this, where he could obviously swallow the microphone. XD



Rock looks good on you, Ryo. :DD



A familiar and beloved sight for all Eighters! :D


ENJOY THIS FOR ALL OF US, FANGIRLS!!


Aw, one of my favorite things about Ryo during lives is how often he looks over at other people. ♥ I'm pretty sure this time he was either looking at Maru or Yoko, just enjoying performing with them. :)


YES.


I guess I will forgive them for never showing a guitar close-up when Yasu does his solo. :)



aklsjdfhkljdhfkfljhdg Baru looking over to meet Ohkura's eyes! He loves that guy's drumming so much, you guys. ♥



DEAD. OMG, YOU'LL HAVE TO JUST GO ON WITHOUT ME.



Doing so good, Hina!! You can make it, Hina!!



No one rocks out like Subaru. He's a born ~star~, ♥


Seriously, I just adore this man.



Totally lost control of his pouty face! Also, aw, Hina is looking at the camera but it is not his turn for focus! :D


NO, cameraperson, Yoko is waiting for Tacchon to start singing to do his dramatic tinkly gesture! Wait for him… SIGHHHH.




TACCHON. ♥♥


SO GOOD, RYO'S FACE.



DO ITTTTT, MUSIC STATION!! Ahhhhhh~



Yokooooooooo~



Maruuuuuuu~ (My commentary is degrading as I die of happiness. XD)


Rock fists and scrunchies, so great. ♥


A little bit perfect right now. :)


Hinaaaaaaa~ STILL EXACTLY THE SAME.


Good Yoko spotting, cameraman! I LOVE YOUR FACE.



So passionate! So SUBARU.


MARU SPOT. :DDDD



FACEEEEEE. COLORSSSSS.


I like to imagine Yasu has been making that face since the last time he had a close-up. (Even though we have seen him since then.) XD


TONGUE.


EITOOOO~



OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF LOVE RIGHT NOW.


Yesssss, Baru rocked so hard at the end there, he lost his hat. :DD


~ROCKSTAR~


EVERYONE IN THIS ROOM IS STELLAR. ♥♥♥ You guys played live and you did it so well.

OVERWHELMING AMOUNT OF LOVE RIGHT NOW O.M.G. Becky!! ♥

First, an apology for not replying to this post in a decently timely manner. I can only say I am going to try and make up for this by showing you MY love for K8 and you combined (which will not be able to fit through any internet connection, but I'll try, yes?) in my reply.

...which will come later. The moment RL calms down I'm coming back and spazzing the stuffing out of this! ♥

Again, thank you so much for sharing! I hope you're well! ♥

OKAY LIKE HALF A YEAR LATER:

RIGHT. Here I am, back with much-belated commentary! Most of it was written 6 weeks ago, sorry, but WHATEVER I AM HERE NOW.

Nnnnngh, you caught me at some of my biggest weak spots right from the very start: K8 all together, Ohkura with his drums, and Subaru... being Subaru. IDEK. THIS PERFORMANCE WAS SO ACE. I WISH THERE WAS A HQ COPY SOMEWHERE, I WANT TO KISS IT AND KEEP IT AND CALL IT AWESOME.AVI. OR SOMETHING.

As a sidenote, MAN I love how K8 is eventually incorporating every member into the band image. Not that SubaruBAND wasn't amazing already, but... it's Kanjan8. Playing instruments! What's not to love in that? (Aside from their relative lack of rhythm in comparison to just Kanjimi3 and SubaruBAND, but hey, everybody's got to start somewhere.)

HAHAHAHA OH HINA. I love how they poke fun at his camwhoring even as he has to devote his full attention to his part in the band!

FFFFF YOKO. AHHHHH. <= INCOHERENCE. DEAD. IF I'M BACK LATER IT'S SO THAT I CAN DIE AGAIN.

MARU!! *COMMENCE FLAIL.* It's been years and I still can't get over how cute he is. And I agree, his pants made me double take. Yasu, I am disappoint!

Ryo's quite decent in this performance! And very photogenic to boot! Ryo, you should keep this up! d:Db

Yasu being smug = me being temporarily stunned by the hotness. Nnggghhhh.

There is a reason why I love Ohkura behind the drums so much. Well, okay, there are many reasons, but one of them is that he looks SO HAPPY. Like a kid with his favourite toys! Bopping along to his older brothers! I love it!

Right. Subaru. If I had a definite favourite in K8 (which I don't, not really), he would be It. I can devote pages and pages of flail over him, but really all of K8 deserves pages of pages of flail anyway so that's nothing surprising. BUT KEY TAKE-HOME POINTS: SUBARU. SINGING MOSTLY IN TUNE. INTENSIFYING THE PERFORMANCE. A;LKJASFJKFDJLK

THE FANS GET A MENTION BECAUSE THEY ARE SO HAPPY AND THEY MAKE K8 SO HAPPY AND THEY MAKE ME SO HAPPY. THEREFOR THEY ARE AWESOME. QED.

YEAH. I'm pretty much incoherent with flail at this point but yes! Thank you for making such a pretty, awesometastic post on K8 based on my prompt! It had made my week and I'm pretty sure it made me grin for the week after too, so thank you, thank you! ♥ ♥ ♥
