NANA MIZUKI LIVE FLIGHT 2014, Air 5 at Kitakyushu!

So... I realize I am very very very very late with this report. In my defense, I had a final thesis presentation and final thesis hand-in to deal with July/early August so those things kinda sucked away all my time and energy... sucked away my whole life actually.... "orz I guess the effort was worth it though since I was one of the only few people who passed on first try without revisions! Go me! I am back now revitalized.... alive & kicking, to be more in Nana terms! Thus without further ado, here is the report for the fateful concert that brought Nana's bad laryngitis along. (>_<;) I will try to write about Yokohama asap too!

Air 5 at Kitakyushu, shuppaaaatsuuuu~!


Goods
Well I have to say this goods line was a joke. It's the shortest I have ever seen and I actually felt bad about it. Fans where are you? Is there even enough of us to fill the venue?? Well on the bright side, the queuing didn't take much time at all (apart from sitting around to have them start the sales), which was good since the weather was a bit unstable.


Almost no people at all in the line :x


Inside Kitakyushu Media Dome
My seat was much better than I had really expected for tonight, as it was pretty close to the middle stage and not too far from the main stage either. Almost at the front of my block too, which meant better view due to lack of people in my immediate front.


Red blop is where I was at. The seating chart at the venue was very wrinkly. (>_<;)


The concert
Was the opening video the same at FujiQ? Can't be... I don't remember seeing half of it. xD Instead of switching from girl and her dad to Nana flying in plane right away, we see grown up Nana in same plane hangar as the man in the beginning of the video and it's made very obvious that the little girl at the start was her and the man was her father as she is looking at a pic of herself as a kid with him. Nana then gets on the plane, and the video is much more realistic than the first time.. making it seem like, maybe... maybe.... we'll actually get a plane...

Once again, MCs might be in wrong place since there was a lot she talked about tonight. So pay that no mind. Should at least have all the important stuff included. :3



Outfit #1 - Pilot
Goggles on her head and wearing nice white pilot jacket and white fluffy skirt/dress. No pic included here since they weren't available when this concert happened, will include in Yokohama report!



01. VIRGIN CODE
Yesssssssss! During the song intro Nana appears from behind the stage set standing on the red plane seen in the opening video (that big MI... I mean NMLF on the wing totally killed me... I am sorry Nana xD) suspended in the air. While moving to the front of the stage it kept bouncing a lot, made me shit my pants for Nana. The plane was brought up and down during the song as well (not while she was singing) and finally landed on the middle stage. This provided a very energetic and fun start to tonight's live!


02. Preserved Roses
Nana stayed in the middle stage to sing Preserved Roses, which was nice since that meant I had a really nice view of her. Would be better if she was a bit taller though. xD Not that I am complaining, I like my pocket-sized Nana. 


03. NEXT ARCADIA
Wooo~ Even though I was aware of this being in the rotation of songs, somehow I wasn't expecting it tonight. Always a pleasure hearing it live, really like the energy Nana puts into it. Hearing it this soon after VIRGIN CODE did really prove my point on them being songs with a similar kind of atmosphere.


MC1
Konbanwaaa! Nana talks about the plane of course. She mentions this was the first time she got to use it. We clapped and Nana says the staff who made it are probably crying from joy since we are clapping so much. It's named Supernal 07. She then mentions she has been to Fukuoka before, but this is her first time performing in Kitakyushu. Last time she performed in Fukuoka was for LIVE JOURNEY, and she asks who went and I neglected to raise my hand because I thought first she meant the Fukuoka one specifically and not the whole tour... I did go to LIVE JOURNEY Nanaaaa! orz First time was for LIVE...SPARK? Don't remember. Nana tells how she's wanted to come to Fukuoka ever since she was a child for the Space World… but still hasn't gone and she wants to goooo. She also mentions that close by to the media dome is a Takoyaki-san named Nanachan lol and of course she had to get some food from there for herself.



Outfit #1 - Revamped
Same as before, without pilot jacket.



04. Million Ways=One Destination
Man, even though I so love this song and hearing Nana sing it live, it makes me depressed every time... (;_; ) such contradicting feelings. Always causes a huge struggle in my heart. So beautiful and sad.


05. ETERNAL BLAZE
Still feels a bit strange having this come so early on in the live, though today it wasn't as strange as last time since we were inside and it was actually dark (in FujiQ EtaBure came when it was still light out). I hope the order is something they will change for the final in Yokohama so that we can get the awesome orange penlight ocean in its full glory in the dark of night. It never gets old. :3 


Cherry Boys Showcase (Cheribo Wings)
Ryutan goes around asking everyone about what Kitakyushu brings to their mind, and Kado-D takes the easy route by saying Space World and Ryutan comments that Nana just talked about it! xD Don't remember them all.. actually don't remember most of them... Fire said something that's actually in some other place lol and Shu-chan talked about his mom's food.



Outfit #2 - Flower Dress
A pretty flower dress with some Japanese influence. And holding a pretty fan!



06. Fun Fun★People
Before starting to sing Nana actually exclaimed "Everyone sing together with me!" .. makes me wonder if in some of the concerts after FujiQ it somehow didn't happen. Forgot to mention in my previous LIVE FLIGHT report that during this song Nana was waving a fan around and making excited poses, especially around the "my baby" parts. She really was super happy! I thought that perhaps by now she wouldn't be so excited about us echoing the "oh yeah"s and "oh no"s, but nope, she still was. xD She could hold herself from rushing them this time, but still ended with excited high pitch. And somehow.... now everyone missed a jump call on this… I feel so so bad. orz why does this keep happening now?! I swore to myself not to miss it the next day, but well yeah... next day never happened lol.

On a side note, this is when I first noticed something unusual. It was the first time ever that it seemed that Nana was slightly running out of breath while singing and running across the stage at the same time. I thought it was because of her being super excited because of this song, but I guess it actually was because of her laryngitis sneaking around to make its appearance. orz


07. ドラマティックラブ
Somehow I had forgotten that this comes next so I was very excited when it started up. I really like this little dance. I watch the clip from WINTER FESTA pretty often. Just can't get enough. xD Still love the combo of this and Fun Fun★People, really puts me in a good mood.


08. 笑顔の行方
Yukue waaaaa~! For some reason this song didn't leave that big of an impression on me tonight even though I really like it. It came and ended too fast for me to register properly. I wonder why?! Come back Egao no Yukueeeee!! (T^T)


MC2
Nana starts by talking about what the cherry boys said about Kitakyushu. Nana goes to bug Shu-chan and he takes the mic and takes a deep breath as if to start speaking but doesn't and Nana is thrown off lol then he takes it again and talk about how he's from close by and is going to visit home the day after tomorrow. Nana then talks about the cheribo wings again and how she wanted a chibi version of herself too but wasn't allowed to get one. She then goes on about Supernal Liberty and how it is full of different kinds of songs like Fun Fun★People is funky and Egao no Yukue is a cover. So much challenge!
Then she switches the topic to Bokura no Ongaku. Nana asks who watched it. She mentions how Yutapon was there too so she goes to bother him and shoves the mic in his face so he could say something and he is like "nani yo" xD lol. Apparently he was there from very early till very late or something and Nana was praising him and he's like he doesn't need to do anything it's Nana's singing and songs that are amazing. I think Nana bumped her head into his drum set when shoving the mic his way, ki otsuketeee. (>_<; )
She continues the Anison Bokura no Ongaku talk to pave the way to chara cover song die. She clarifies this time that the star means that one of the Cheribo can choose out of die songs what they feel like hearing at that moment. She lists how she sang Gambaranakya ne, Akai Sweet Pea (x2) and 1986-nen no Marilyn during the tour so far.. and we get 1986-nen no Marilyn again. She's a bit disappointed it's the same one again in a row. It's a song from White Album~


09. 1986年のマリリン
So.... I've watched White Album and supposedly have the soundtrack, but somehow I don't remember this song. I guess I haven't heard it somehow, it's really catchy so I would remember it. Even though Nana was disappointed in rolling the same song twice in a row, I am happy I got to hear this song tonight - I really really like it! It is otonappoi like Desire -Jounetsu- so I think it is one of my top favorites along with Desire -Jounetsu- from these rollable songs. xD

Nana mentions after the song that she always feels nervous when singing covers, daww.


10. 光
Oooh Hikari~~ Totally forgot there was a chance to hear this during this tour. I've been wanting to hear this song live for quite some time now, I like the sense of carefree happiness it gives me. And tbh, considering how much I stress about life all the time... feeling like that is a nice change. xD Somehow though I think the combo of Soradokei and FATE works better together, so I hope for that for the Yokohama finale. :3


11. FATE
Yay FATE~ I managed to keep my eyes dry this time. Victory! This song never ceases to make various emotions bubble up from deep inside me. I really get absorbed into Nana singing it every time.... well, not so much at the handshake event since I was so nervous. But every time after that! 


Team Yoda Showcase (New Generation)
Well nothing new here, Team Yoda stewardess team takes over the flight in the video and get introduced. I was able to participate in the K-Pop'ish song a bit better this time now that I was already familiar with it~




Outfit #3 - "Erokakkoii" Attendant
One friend complained how I could do better than the previous doodle I made. So did this now. Didn't include the text in her skirt because I don't know the exact things written on it. :3



12. GUILTY
I hadn't realized it in FujiQ because of my limited view of the middle stage, but that über-sexy hip move happens actually in EVERY chorus, not just the last double chorus. Oh. My. God. Funnily enough it happens when  that slightly electronic voice says "don't lose your mind".... but how can I NOT lose my mind when you do THAT Nana? It's... really... I don't know. And then next chorus she does it again now during "so you can't stop me"... fine Nana.. keep doing it then. orz Though it is quite distracting... Especially considering how close to the middle stage I was this time. Also, I was disappointed that this time nobody else caught on to singing the "give me more"s for Nana like everyone did in FujiQ, so I was left to do it by myself lol yare yare daze..


13. Through the night
I was hoping for Soredemo Kimi wa Omoi Desu Kara -again-, but it was nice getting to hear this song too (plus I was certain I'd get Soredemo the next night, but then it got cancelled noiiuuuuu). I have to say Nana has come a long way from when she performed this in LIVE FORMULA, though I guess the major difference in outfit style might also have something to do with it. :p


MC3
Nana does funny sexy poses right after the song finishes and that triggers mawatte-calls. And she's like what I was just showing off. For mou ikkai-call, Shu-chan mawattes with her. Nana then talks about her outfit and says that it's more otonappoi appearance, since she is otona. Short skirt and more cleavage lol. She asks if we're okay with it and of course everyone is okay with it… with me and this chiisai Japanese girl in the row before mine chorusing it with an extra wohoo after everyone else was already done. Hentai-tachi. xD Nana talks about how the outfit was modeled to fit with GUILTY, so it became that sexy attendant. She then mentions something about sexy pose and how it's hazukashii and makes her be like ok ok back to singing dumdidum. She's def been getting a lot of  shishou-calls on tour because of this. xD


14. 理想論
Yesssssssss! I am so happy Risouron popped up again on the rota for me. I can't get enough of this song. Come to think of it, this and probably now Million Ways=One Destination are the most depressing songs out there from Nana, and funnily enough they are both part of this tour. xD I'm really starting to get a growing urge to pull out my violin and play this again, I hope I can find time for it soon. It really cleanses my soul somehow.


15. アンティークナハトムジーク
I was looking forward to experiencing this again, since I really liked the atmosphere Nana created to it with Team Yoda already in FujiQ. And dat walking across the stage~ I love it so much. Just makes it all so much more dramatic. This time Nana didn't get down on her knee at the end though. Also, I am always shitting my pants about Team Yoda's cloak sleeve ending up in Nana's mouth when they do all that stuff around her while she sings. So far so good though, haha.


Pilot Nana Time Warps -short movie
Tamori-san.. did it change from last time? Ah yes. Most of the dialogue is different from what it was in FujiQ. Aoi-san makes her do a Tamori-san impersonation before she warps and crashes. Ah, Nana also said she is flying to Fukuoka too, I guess they've made a customized version of the conversation for every venue. Now I could also place what Final Fantasy music the music in the forest reminded me of - world map music! I think from like FFVIII... very similar. xD Rest of the video remains the same except that the thing I thought the video was hinting at.... happened this time! So....



Outfit #4 - Flamenco

A red dress, a bit similar in style to the red dress she wore in LIVE DIAMOND / WINTER FESTA 2nd Night with a long hem attached to her wrist Flamenco style. Very similar, if not the same, to the red dress of Angel Nana in the video.



16. 革命デュアリズム
Holyyyy shiiittt, flying Nana! Flying red angel Nana! I did think the insert video kinda suggested we'd get a flying Nana already when I first saw it in FujiQ, but I wasn't expecting it to happen before the Yokohama finale. It was kinda funny to watch though, as the wires kept bringing her up and down, all boink boink. Surely it has to be very hard to sing like that? D: Since I was pretty close to the middle stage and that was where Nana ended up flying (same path of flying as with the plane earlier, a straight line from the main stage to the middle stage), she was almost right on top of meee (not quite yeah, but close enough xD). Was really nice singing this song with Nana with her hovering close by like that.


17. アパッショナート
Strong start with Nana's nice mic stand maneuvers. I was really looking forward to the sparks at the end again, but before the song got that far.... Nana's voice started breaking. Twice it was dangerously close to being very bad, but she managed to fix her voice in time. I haven't really heard this happening since that one TV appearance where she sang Maria&Joker and Astrogation and had a mishap with the very high note of Astrogation. This time I felt like it wasn't an accidental slip, but rather something she couldn't help and was really putting a lot of effort into repressing. I wasn't that bothered with what happened during Fun Fun★People, but this was making me genuinely worried. I shrugged it off as being caused by Appassionato being quite a difficult song though.


MC4
Nana talks about the Appassionato light effects (says they are hanabi mitai, like fireworks) and her flying and how she was going all over the place (not really all over the place, just in a straight line but yeah xD). Since the tour is called LIVE FLIGHT, she is trying to fly in many different ways lol. Mou ikkai-call for Tamori-san impersonation. She does it and says the sound producer Yabuki-san is actually much better than her in it and continues to talk a bit more on the matter. Like how someone (can't remember who) slapped a Tamori-san sticker on her microphone?? xD



Outfit #4 - Revamped
The Flamenco dress stripped down to a polka dot top and shorts.... with a skirt part attached on the sides, going up to her stomach and covering her stomach with some black lacy bit. Still not liking this outfit. xD



18. POP MASTER
Oh yay~! I was kinda prepared not to hear this from the rota during this tour for some reason, but I am really glad I did get to hear it. This has to be one of my top live songs now and forever, just because of how fun it is to engage in it with Nana. 


19. Rock you baby!
Time for the towel song of the tour! Nana and Team Yoda made their way to the middle stage for this. I realize I have become such an uptight fan that it irks me when people neglect to whip out their towels (even when they clearly have them) and just stick to penlights during a towel song. Does this mean I am growing old? What am I becoming? xD Somehow my arm didn't seem to be ready for this today and ached quite immensely at the more intense parts. I guess my body has become weaksauce during the intense month of thesis writing. orz


20. POWER GATE
Yeeeessss~! I have somehow renewed my love for POWER GATE recently and even though I have heard it in nearly every concert I have gone to, it makes me much more excited now than ever before. xD I was jumping so high during this song that I am sure my legs will fill me with regret tomorrow.


MC5
Time for the last song, sniff.. which was of course the first one decided for this tour as she already mentioned in FujiQ. But, she points out, that since the tour is still continuing for three'ish months, it's nowhere close to the end yet! Wee!


21. ミラクル☆フライト
For this, Nana, Team Yoda and Cherry Boys come to the middle stage. The plane Nana flew in during the first song of the night rises up near the end of the song and Nana and team Yoda rise on top of it on some little makeshift platform. Everyone's so happy performing this song that it automatically just makes me very happy too.


Encore call!
Naa-naaaaa! Oideeee~!



Outfit #5 - Encore 
Can't actually remember the details for this, this time... I am sorry. orz It's been too long since the live and didn't write it down. The usual though.



22. 時空サファイア
For this song, Nana went around in the Nanette plane thingy, which she used for Kakumei Dualism in FujiQ instead of flying (Sniff sniff, I also realized I would have seen her very close tomorrow night during this song if the concert hadn't been cancelled). Since Nana is so tiny, couldn't really see her for half her journey around the hall. xD


23. セツナキャパシティー
So.... Everyone missed the jump cue AGAIN.. I feel so terrible. orz And tonight it was even the second one that we missed. I am so not going to miss anything anymore next time!! I need to reclaim my honor.


MC6
Nana thanks for calling back for encore. We get the usual shassu-call, for otoko, onna, kitakyushu, kyushu.... etc. Since Nana wants to keep going forward she will switch her goal from performing in all prefectures to conquer all -shi (municipality) as well! I guess then it will be all wards (ku) after? xD You still have a lot to conquer, eh Nana...


24. DISCOTHEQUE
Chu-ru Chu-ru Pa-ya-pa! I had pretty much forgotten about all my worries at this point and surrendered myself to enjoy taking part in the various songs, such as POWER GATE and this.... when again Nana's voice broke a bit. This really alarmed me, because I am sure it shouldn't happen during DISCOTHEQUE, a song she is so familiar with. Still, I didn't trust my gut feeling enough, as who am I to claim I can recognize how Nana is feeling? I am just a nobody and not someone who actually knows her.

When DISCOTHEQUE finishes, strips shot ouuuut again and I gotz one! I noticed that the one I got for FujiQ and the one I got tonight both match the limited shirt color of that particular venue. I wonder if that's always the case? Would be a fun little detail.


Gotchaaa~


And thus ends the report of the live that marked the beginning of Nana's laryngitis. (T^T) Apart from being busy, I think I kinda felt reluctant to write about this since she was already struggling so much on this night. It really pained me. Now it was a bit easier, since so much time had passed~ Aaaaaand I will try to be much faster with Yokohama report though, so look forward to it soon!
