Gawd, it's still ringing in my ears after yesterday's Y.F.C.
concert: Japanese chippendales group performance :P
One thing I must admit is that Gackt looks much better in person than I'd thought. And he has a really nice body. Beautifully toned, not bulky, he obviously put a lot of effort to achieve that kind of body shape. Having said that, seeing him made my wonder what I ever found attractive about his face in the first place. Looking at the photos I took (yay me and JaME photo pass) I realised his face looks like a mask now and his blue contact lenses make him look really creepy O_o It was also visible he was tired. He kept squinting, even closing, his eyes and at the end, when they were talking to the public, he almost tripped and fell from the dais. His voice sounded good and I'm almost sure he didn't actually use playback @_@
Chachamaru was the most fun member, he had an amazing contact with public though You was also outgoing. Shinya (yup, the very same one from Luna Sea, ahaha, I bet he singed up because he envied Sugizo's numerous ventures 8D) was barely visible, pity because he's entertaining to watch when he plays the drums ^_^ That Jon guy was absolutely redundant, I mean why name themselves yellow if they have a whitey in the line-up? My personal eye-candy award goes to UZO 8D Love me a strong man on the bass 8D
Hearing Vanilla live turned out to be best thing about the whole evening. I'm sure I would have enjoyed this concert far more if Gackt just stood there and sung, especially his older songs, those really great songs that prove he was once a skilled writer. They definitely could do without fanservice, it just added that kind of cheap feeling that it's all staged and only fangirl-pleasing. Especially since they were all already stripping. Well, all except Shinya, because when he took of his shirt, it turned out he had a tank top underneath,ahahahhah XD
When Gackt said that !this! night was the best for him, I almost snorted XD It was a nice gesture to pick up the Polish flag with YFC written all over it and to use it as a cape, even Shinya wrapped it all over himself^^.
Unfortunately the feeling was partially gone when, after the concert, member of the club turned up trying to sell guitar picks and a suspiciously similiar flag. There were several flags thrown on the stage, so hopefully this wasn't the one they picked up, otherwise I'm absolutely disappointed ;-;
