Tenimyu Dream Live Report Part 1

Omatase shimashita!! I finally have some time to type up a “Full Tenimyu Dream Live Report!!” As many of you probably already know, I went to both the 11:00 showing and the 16:00 showing of the Dream Live, last Sunday, June 13th. Which made for the best day of my life a long with the Kimeru Live on May 5th!
And well since I went to both of the showings…I got to hear all the different ad-libs and hopefully I don’t confuse the events of the two shows, too much. So for those of you who watched the afternoon concert, hope you don’t mind any mix-ups in my reports. In case you notice something I wrote that you didn’t see in the later live, then it probably happened in the morning live.

Arriving at Sendagaya
I left Shibuya around 8:40 or so and took the JR line to Yoyogi then transferred to the Chuo-Sobu line for the train to Sendagaya which was just one stop away. Yes, it was extremely convenient to be staying in Shibuya…such an easy commute. And the Tokyo Metropolitan Gym is right in front of you as you step out of the Sendagaya Sta. <--even more convenient!

I arrived at Sendagaya around 9am and there was a hugely long line already formed for the Tenimyu merchandise which was being sold under tents just outside the venue. So I made my way to the end of the line as quickly as I could, so sure that I stood out being the only foreigner there at the time. And since I was by myself, I couldn’t help but spend most of that time in line eavesdropping on the group of girls behind me who were going on about different merchandise they wanted to buy and their love for different members of the TeniMyu cast. It was quite entertaining eavesdropping on them.

As I waited in line, the weather got iffy and we had to pull out our umbrellas, but luckily it was just a light drizzle and about halfway towards the tent the rain stopped and I could put my umbrella away again.

When I finally got to the front of the line…I knew that I definitely wanted the Dream Live Set, which included the pamphlet, pen light, 2 balloons and a poster! You can find the items on the Official TeniMyu Site. I also picked up posters from the previous musicals and the 5000 yen set of cast photos. Ahh, Kimeru and Yuuyan!^^

I pondered whether I should buy the other pamphlets from the previous lives but figured I’d just think about it first as I could always come back at the end of the show to buy them. As I exited the line around 9:30am, I noticed a group of girls getting all excited about something happening near the traffic light just a few feet from where I was standing. Then, I noticed it! It was a van with pictures of TeniPuri characters decorated all around the tinted windows!!! I could be wrong, but I assumed along with the other girls, that there were Tenimyu cast members inside!!! I quickly took out my digicam and snapped some photos! Thank goodness the light was red for so long or I would’ve totally missed the chance! Check my upcoming lj *locked* entry for the pictures.

After that, I got in line for my seats. But, it would still be an hour before they let people in the gym, so I bided my time by reading the pamphlet. It was sooo nice and so many great pictures of the cast behind the scenes, too!

My Seat
For both the 11AM and 4PM showings, I was seated in the “stands” which basically means seats on the 2nd floor. My seat was located in the Northern part of the venue in the B section which was the left side of the gym in about the center section. And for both showings my row wasn’t too far from the front rows near the banister.

So about 11:00 the show began. And one by one the Seigaku team members appeared on stage. First thing they did was their dance number which was really a great way to pump up the audience!!^o^ Afterwards, Oishi took the lead and greeted the audience by asking how we were. Then, he told the audience on the 2nd floor to be careful up there (so noone gets pushed off the banister).

He then proceeded to introduce the “new Echizen Ryoma” and told him to say something to the audience. So Ryoma moved upstage and said “Chiisu~!”
Of course the audience enjoyed that and there was huge applause. Then, Oishi quickly told Ryoma he could step back now and requested that we (the audience) forgive him because he’s very nervous. (^___^)

For the Dream Live songs list please check out the Official Tenimyu Site.
Here are some of the highlights!

The ichinensei trio made their entrance and re-intro’d themselves. And I must say I found them very impressive during the whole live! They are really really really great to see in person! I was especially impressed by Ishibashi-san!
When Horio and Kachiro were talking they kept interrupting Katsuo from saying anything. The boys also talked about facts about the gym and talked about some legendary ghost in it(<--at least in the 11am showing they did).

Then they talked about why they’re having this concert. They basically said it was to show how everyone’s skills have improved since the last musical. Hehe!
They said both Inui and Tezuka’s singing voices are better and that Fuji’s become a better dancer! (>o>) haha…they were referring to Kimeru. Then they were cringing in fear of the audiences anger for saying such things. Hehe

They talked about the characters songs and mimicking them.
Then, they started talking about Kaidou and Momochan-senpai. They were arguing over who was better out of the two. Then, Kaidou suddenly appeared on-stage. So they quickly said, of course, Kaidou-senpai is the best! But! Then, Momochan-senpai appeared! So they said Momo was better!

Both Momo and Kaidou took center stage and started arguing with each other saying that one was better than the other. There were some funny jokes suggesting that Kaidou was worried about Momo and Momo was worried about Kaidou. Momo told Kaidou to take center-stage but Kaidou hesitated. Momo showed him how to do it the right way and told him to see how the light shines when he takes center-stage. Momo ended up going into his “Ore wa Momo-chan” number. And very amusingly Kaidou finally gets fed up with Momo taking center-stage and just totally interrupts Momo’s singing and dancing and starts singin’ “Tough.” The songs end up being blended together very beautifully!^^
Look forward to it in the DVD!

Oh, in the middle of “Tough” Inui shows up to give Kaidou the special juice. And, towards the end of the number when the songs get blended together…one of the last verses is supposed to be “Ore wa Momochan!” but Inui steps in front of Momo and interrupts with Momo singing “Ore wa…” then Inui singin’ “INUI!” Haha that was so funny! I think it was an ad-lib because he didn’t do that in the 16:00 showing. Hopefully they’ll have that part on the dvd, too!

Afterwards, Inui and Taka came on stage. Inui was depressed about he doesn’t get fan love and how him and Taka are always just in the background. In the first showing he talked about how silent the audience was but since the audience was more energized in the second showing he changed that line. Also, he talked about how he wouldn’t get any flowers in the morning live and how sad he was about that. But, in the second live he said how him and Taka, their flowers are never enough…not like the other cast members. I guess he said this because after the first live, he DID get his fanmail and flowers. But it was so funny cuz so many ppl were yelling out Inui and Souta’s name at this point! So it was pretty obvious how popular he is.

Anyways, Inui was saying that at even Taka is more popular than him. Taka even gets the “Ore wa Burning” solo. And how ppl like Taka because of that. So Taka got excited and was like yeah but then he realized he never remembers anything that happens when he’s in burning mode. But he says that people do like Inui because of his Juice. So Inui gets happy about that but then remembers that tho he’s popular for his juice people aren’t really happy about drinking his juice.:/ Poor Inui.

There’s also a part where Taka accidentally calls Inui, Inai. Haha…he says something like “Let’s go, Inai” and Inui says “dare ga inai?” haha

Ah! This is longer than I thought it would be. I'll have to end here for now. Part 2 will be up tomorrow. Sorry for the long read.
