NANA MIZUKI LIVE ADVENTURE 2015, Treasure 03 at Osaka!

So.... this has dragged on for quite some time. It does feel a bit silly pumping these out when the BD/DVD is coming so soon already came out.... but these are also for me to remember my personal experience of the particular concert so I'll still write them up. Which means that yeah, Seibu Dome will still be coming too... sometime. Here's to hoping I'll have the chance to actually write about Zachou Kouen before it gets released, though Nana is not making it easy for me with how soon it's coming out. orz

Live Adventure Treasure 3, touch and go!!



Goods
Queuing today was a lot worse than yesterday, as today was a perfectly sunny hot day (on the first day it had been cloudy). Luckily the queuing was happening beside quite a tall wall, but I watched in dread as the shadow grew shorter minute by minute until it was full on sun. orz I am really not made for that stuff... Had to go again today though to get the day specific pin and t-shirt.


Inside Osaka-jo Hall
So as we realized on the first night, our tickets for this night were better even though we had initially thought they'd be worse. Still on the side stand but closer to the stage. Not complaining, since the overall view was great!

Outfit #1 - Badass Nana



01. No Limit
I am starting to get more of a feel for this as an opening song, and all things considered, it is actually pretty nice as such. Though, I realized why it lacks impact compared to something like VIRGIN CODE. The intro melody is pretty short in No Limit, which means the build up until Nana finally appears is quite minimal; she needs to show up to sing the first "touch and go" pretty fast. Songs like VIRGIN CODE that have a super long intro, keeps the audience in suspense longer till Nana's first appearance.


02. Justice to Believe
Time to enjoy Nana's twirls again today! \o/ I am actually glad now that Nana isn't wearing the Indiana Jones'ish adventurer outfit from her insert videos, as with this pink long coat these twirlies look much more epic. In fact, I think I was a bit too absorbed in the twirls, because when it came time to participate, I almost shouted the "Love it's in my justice" bit instead of "Justice to believe", oops. (^-^;;)



Outfit #1 - Revamped
Still a bit confused about this one. xD



03. PRIDE OF GLORY
Wohoo, I guess PRIDE OF GLORY is a permanent dance song on the set list! \o/ Though, it got me thinking about how a lot of the older dance songs I have heard live so many times, but then songs like HIGH-STEPPER and PARTY PARTY (and I guess maybe GUILTY too from now orz) I've only seen that one time when they premiered. And at least from HIGH-STEPPER it's been quite many years now (gasp, 5 years!)... so when will I get to experience that again? (T^T) I really love that song and dance... and I feel the same way about GUILTY too. Give me a concert with both of them. Soon. Please? 


04. Chronicle of Sky
Ooh yay! I think the last time I heard this was in LIVE UNION. This used to be one of my favorite Nana dances, but since then she's released so many epic ones, that it has had to make way for some new favorites. :3 Still, I do rejoice when I get to see it again.


MC1
Konbanwaaa! Welcome! Nana goes through all the concert sponsors as usual, with the addition of Nakauuu for LIVE ADVENTURE as we know. Nana makes a comment on how funny it is that most of her sponsors are food related. Sasuga ne lol. She then talks about the set and how there are many different components to it, making it very amusement park -like. Then, Jeep-san! Nana loves cars so she was excited to have a real jeep at the concert. The driver came all the way from Tokyo. Nana said that singing and driving just didn't work together very well so that's why we have driver-san. Today when she said the name of the jeep, "Mizuki Jeep Seven",  she was very careful to pronounce "seven" the right way, instead of the Japanesey way. Guess she was still super embarrassed about yesterday. xD


05. Kindan no Resistance
Yeeesssssss (I seriously won't stop getting excited about this ever now lol)! Jumping and shouting "High! High!" and "Down! Down!" is just so fulfilling.


06. Heaven Knows
Even though I was happy to get to hear this live, since it's so much fun singing the "heaven knows" bits for Nana and hearing her sing those super fast verses (I recently attempted this at karaoke and nope, didn't happen lol).. I was a little disappointed, since this means I most likely won't get to hear Sabaku no Umi at Seibu Dome... and consequently the chance of it being on the BD/DVD is pretty slim... Heaven Knows being a single A side song after all.


Cherry Boys Showcase
Not really gonna talk about this much, since you can go to [NANA MIZUKI LIVE ADVENTURE 2015, Treasure 02 at Osaka] for the description of what was going on in their intro video... and as for what they talked about.... can't really remember. >.>; I have a hard time storing what others say apart from Nana in my brain's permanent memory.



Outfit #2 - Cowgirl
Definitely the clear winner outfit of LIVE ADVENTURE! :3



07. Lazy Syndrome
Tonight Aniki was just as into this as Nana and it was so fun to watch. He even did a slide to his knees. No wonder Nana said she wants to be like him when she is older. xD And Nana kept going as hardcore as yesterday too, making me kinda wonder what kind of sugar rush these people are on. I want to be happy and energetic like this too!!


08. Bokura no Mirai
I have come to the conclusion that Bokura no Mirai is a good song to absorb peacefully instead of through high tension concert feels. It's nice therapy for a weary soul, an oasis to replenish your energy reserves. Am I sounding poetic enough already? xD But it doesn't leave any lasting impact, it's something you experience and then it's gone.


MC2
Cowgirl Nana! Mawatteee! Nana talks to Cho-san since he wasn't allowed to finish what he wanted to say during the Cheribo intro. Nana goes to talk to Aniki as well, she forgot to mention that he is joining them from Kindan no Resistance onwards so he managed to sneak on stage without anyone paying him attention. xD Then she goes on to explain the letter board again. Today is going to be V for victory!


09. Violetta
When Nana said that it was gonna be V tonight, I quickly started going through songs in my head and by the time she revealed what song it was gonna be, only Vitalization had crossed my mind. I'm glad though that it was an old song like Violetta though that I had completely forgotten existed, because this was probably the only time I would ever get to hear it live.


10. Darling Plastic
Well, wasn't expecting this this at all. :3 After what happened in LIVE GRACE -Opus II- Night 1 though, I feel a bit anxious and awkward every time I hear it. Sorry Nana, I can't help it. orz It is one of the songs I like the least from ROCKBOUND NEIGHBORS and after that incident, I guess I just liked it even less. It's still a nice song, and I don't mind hearing it now and then but I won't really hype about it.


11. Nocturne -Revision-
Somehow I enjoyed this more tonight than I did yesterday, which is excellent but still I couldn't get super excited about it, like everyone else here. xD


Team Yo-Da Showcase
And again, description to the intro video for Team Yo-Da is in the first report, [NANA MIZUKI LIVE ADVENTURE 2015, Treasure 02 at Osaka].



Outfit #3 - Pink Checkers



12. Angel Blossom
Man, this is really growing on me more and more every time I hear it live. Well, the live version that is. Though, I guess this does increase my enjoyment of listening to it from the single too as now I will always remember fondly how fun this was live when listening to it.


13. SUPER GENERATION
Here we get the usual rotation and POP MASTER gets replaced by SUPER GENERATION. There usually always is a part in the concert where we get one of these two and POWER GATE, or then we get one of them in encore instead. It's fun to see little patterns like this and how it's not only EtaBure that seems to have a quite permanent presence in concerts.


MC3
Talk about the mine cart she came down in for Angel Blossom and the dance for the song. Nana thanks us for dancing along and says that if you are not confident in doing it. you can just wave your arms. Nana then talks about LINE and how first it was her all alone and then Yabuki-chan befriended her. Then, the Cheribo group. Yabuki-chan apparently spammed her with all these vids of us dancing to Angel Blossom at yesterday's concert lol. Then Nana tells us how now while she's been in Osaka she learned to make takoyaki! She says that in the next FC event she'll make takoyaki for all! xD and joked about how long that would take lol.


14. Ashita graffiti
I realized tonight that the reason the chorus doesn't bother me live is because of how well it goes with waving a penlight left and right. I mean, it gives the right kind of rhythm for a wave, which without actually having a penlight in your hand and waving it about sounds a but uninteresting. Maybe I should start carrying a penlight with me every day so that whenever this song comes up on my iPod, I can pull it out and wave it around.. xD


15. POWER GATE
It's time for the boat round and POWER GATE! Got to see her passing a bit closer tonight, though it still seemed to me like there wasn't much space for it to go around on the arena. xD


Adventurer Nana -movie
Same thing as yesterday, for the detailed description see [NANA MIZUKI LIVE ADVENTURE 2015, Treasure 02 at Osaka]!



Outfit #4 - Yellow Elegance




16. Avalon no Oukan
Epic song time! \o/ I really really like the thunder and rumbling effects that start out this song. I wonder what special thing happens with this in the final concert, since usually it is this slot after the insert movie is when fun surprises happen. Also fun fact: I used to use this song as my alarm for a couple of years and now every time I hear the opening melody my body and mind become much more alert. xD


17. Pray
Ooh, Pray again for tonight! I had a feeling this might be a rotating song (and still might be, but kinda weird that it stayed for both Osaka nights then), but maybe not..? :o I guess I'll find out when I go for the Seibu Dome final (since I am too lazy to check out set lsits of concerts I don't attend xD). Every time I hear this now though, I feel a bit disappointed about them removing the LIVE GRACE -Opus II-  version of it from karaoke because it was soooo goooooddd. Yes, I will somehow mention the LIVE GRACE -Opus II- version of it every time I talk about Pray lol.


MC4
Nana talks about Symphogear, since the concert is reaching its climax and climax always makes her think of Symphogear. lol is that so Nana, is it perhaps related to this...? xD




Ehum anyways... She tells that Aoi-san has been making fun of Maria and Tsubasa being all rabu rabu in episode 2 and how she was so happy having bought a Cross Ange DVD because of Ange x Hilda and Ange x Tusk. lol Aoi-san, the perfect role model of a creepy kouhai. xD Nana exlaims that luckily there is none of that in Symphogear! The new season is about a song that can destroy the world and destroying (Exterminate!) the darkness within you. We all must have those feelings about work, school.... so let's destroy that darkness together!


18. Exterminate
Was so looking forward to hearing this again tonight, might have actually been the song I was looking forward to the most. That beginning is just soooo powerful. The shivers are endless. But still those couple of bits are way too fast to keep up with in the verses to sing for Nana. (T^T) I will ganbatte before the Seibu Dome final... I swear...


19. Shuumatsu no Love Song
I will never get enough of this song. It is kinda reaching a similar status with me as Risouron (but not quite, since it's missing the epic violins) I realized, as it is also one of those songs that kinda cleans the filth of your soul. It's not the happiest song around, and relating to all the frustration and feels in it just makes you feel better. I hope Nana will keep singing this often even after LIVE ADVENTURE.


20. Heart-shaped chant
Yesss, time for this special treat again! Come to think of it, I would still really love to hear this and Albireo in some special live (be it orchestral or acoustic), I think they would sound absolutely gorgeous. So maybe I shouldn't say I am already fulfilled just because I heard these two in a normal live lol I need to reach further!! \o/ More Nana goals!! Also, I have to say that I am glad that there is a song like this in the set list of LIVE ADVENTURE, as most of it seems to be pretty fast-paced and /or upbeat.



MC5
Time for last song! Nana talks about her debut 15 years ago and how she wanted to achieve so many things and now when she looks back at what she's actually done, wow! It was actually her 7th time performing in this venue yesterday (I think, could have been tonight too, forgot :o)! She mentions how Mishi-P's first concert at this particular venue was... Seiko something? Couldn't really make out the name. Anyways, Nana mentioned it last night too, which I forgot and turns out Aniki had been there playing guitar for that concert too. He was then 31, now 61. Whoa! Again, Nana states that she wants to age like Aniki. xD Then build up to the next song....


21. ETERNAL BLAZE
Sea of orange initiated! I feel like I wasn't able to give my all to this tonight - a week of tourism, two times queuing, and one concert had taken a bit of a toll on energy levels. orz Nothing fills one with more shame than not going full throttle for EtaBure.


Encore call!
Nanaaaaaaaaa~!



Outfit #5 - encore



22. Dream Rider
So I got my wish to see this a little bit closer tonight, yay! :3 I still can't believe that Nana managed to create something nearly as awesome as  Dramatic Love. 


MC6
Shassuuuu! Boys shassuuuu! Girls shassuuuu! Cheribo shassuuu! Mizuki Staff shassuuu! lol Team Yo-Da was spared tonight. xD Though, watching some of Mizuki Staff scramble on to say it was just as funny as Team Yo-Da last night. I'm sure that Nana just loves to catch them unprepared. The 700th smile-gang is around the corner! They've started a countdown to it. It's gonna be some time in August. They're trying to think of what special they could do, since it's a bit hard on radio as you can' see them.


23. It's only brave
I was trying to be more prepared for this tonight so I could catch the proper flow and feel of the song, but somehow it is still pretty hard. xD I guess it still needs a few more listens. It's nice though that Nana's songs always have so many layers that it needs to be properly absorbed and analyzed before making an opinion about it. I like that sort of thing.


24. Happy Go-Round
I'm starting to consider that this might actually be my favorite towel song, it has more attitude than most of them, at least to me. A lot of the other ones are a bit similar in feel, unlike this. So I really am happy that this made a return so soon after LIVE CIRCUS
