edit info: NEW SOLOS PERFORMED
thanks to for the details!
Kame: Ballad is nice but the performance was just him standing there singing. A bit of a let down for me given his last 2 solo performances. However Dracula and his dentist did make a re-appearance later in the show!
Ueda: His solo followed Kame's. Kame dropped though the floor and it started 'snowing' then the white lights on the snow all started turning red and we get the intro of a strait up rock song. Cue Ueda with a furry guitar rocking it out, totally in English (or Engrish depending on how you look at it). Excellent rock beat but the lyrics get a little......strange.
Koki: Brings the lulz with 'Dangerous Cat'. He was in a captain-type costume with 2 female dancers dressed as cats. Song has a dog/cat theme. Plenty of growling, good boy-ing, and meo-wing from Koki. At one point during the song, he has 4 juniors on chain leashes.
Junno: Dances in a super sliver jacket. I'm sure he could use his jacket as a mirror with no problems. Nice song, interesting dance.
Maru: Him and the dancers all had on suits that lit up. Started by 'pressing' his suit and having a small heart appear in lights. Then the whole suit lit up. In the later half of the performance, the lights turn off and all you can see is the lights on the suits moving while everyone dances. Very cool effect.
they apparently performed a lot of the songs that had been piling up since last year, including the B-sides that rock
Bring on the fire guys....
