Stayed up past 2AM this morning because I had the sudden urge to watch the whole concert again.

Not sorry.

Been trying and failing to stop myself from doing so too since Tuesday. XD

It was a Friday night and even though it was already 11PM, I pretty much went, fuck it.

Also, your icons make me so sad, because I lost all my SMAP icons two laptops ago. ;_;

I tried to get a screen capture last night to make an icon of Shingo from the junction before Manatsu no Datsugokumono, but VLC didn't save it. ;____________________;
csaca 8th-Dec-2012 04:56 am (UTC) I was very sleepy 15 minutes ago, now I'm mess of drooling and whimpering...
This looks super awesome! I don't know if it's the stage, the cuts or lights or what, but doesn't it seem much pro than previews DVDs?! Or it's just, I'm super high on SMAP whole week. x'D

But CAN'T WAIT!!!! Ero petto molesting women on screen XDDDD Nakai-kun's sexy legs *___* The clothes - after they take of that aweful white coat - the dances, the hairs, this album <333

Want want want!

This concert was so good.

I'm pissed at myself for not trying to go. >.<

Also, the "Introduction to Stage" feature on the 3rd disc is an amazing thing of beauty, so if you don't know what it is yet, don't spoil yourself unitl you see it. It's so much better that way.
csaca 8th-Dec-2012 06:03 am (UTC)
I would like to watch it so bad!

Uh, I understand why, it really seems awesome! //pats

Okay, hope no one will spoil it for me! And now, seriously can't wait to catch a download link somewhere! Then, I guess I'll go to serious savings to be able to buy it next year xD
exdream1999 8th-Dec-2012 06:28 am (UTC)
During winter break I'm going to bite the bullet and join the fanclub.

Also, going to try and go to the SMAP store this year.

I hope links go up soon! It's really fun and awesome. I'm kind of side that the MCs got cut down, but in the end, the extras are also good.

It's definitely worth the money, but then again, I didn't have to worry about the exchange rate when I bought mine...
csaca 8th-Dec-2012 06:34 am (UTC)
Wow *____* Hope you succeed! Fanclub, concert, the store~ I envy you :D

Ah, no Mc? Well, the skits with dressing up already seems awesome just from this vid, so it's fine.

It's really expensive, I just checked it after watching the video, never saw a JE dvd so expensive before, but I'm sure worth the money~
exdream1999 8th-Dec-2012 06:40 am (UTC)
Hey, if you ever want something, I'll totally get it. (I do it for my Arashi fan friends all the time...)

They have MCs, they're just not the full sections. Same thing with the songs on the 3rd disc.

Actually, this isn't any more expensive the other SMAP DVDs, it's just that the yen keeps going up in value, so it's getting more expensive for people outside of Japan.
csaca 8th-Dec-2012 07:03 am (UTC)
:O Would you? I guess, I'll be in your favour sometimes then! Thank you! <3

That's why I wrote other JE, had no idea their dvds are more expensive than Arashi's, Arafes is like 30$ cheaper than this. Never bought a Smap dvd before ^^", so I didn't know about this, but surely noticed yen is getting more expensive, not mention our forint is weaker and weaker.
stbluemoon 8th-Dec-2012 07:14 am (UTC)
I think you can get it about 2000 yen cheaper than the retail price from It doesn't come with the poster that CDJapan includes, but I know a lot of people don't mind because they don't put up posters anyway. :)
csaca 8th-Dec-2012 07:19 am (UTC)
Oh, thanks! I usally too lazy to pick other page than cdjapan/yesasia, so forgot to check the others! My problem with posters is I don't have space anymore to put up more in my room x'DD My latest Arashi poster went to the ceiling becuase of it xDD
exdream1999 8th-Dec-2012 10:01 am (UTC)
Yeah, I don't mind, especially if I'm going to buy something for myself anyways.

I know AraFes is cheaper since it's only 2 DVDs, I don't remeber how much the 3-disc Beautiful World cost though...

For SMAP though, this is about normal.
stbluemoon 8th-Dec-2012 06:37 am (UTC)
Shingo really outdid himself this year, and maybe it's also because he had his teacher's (Nakai) help?

There's still Sapporo ;P

That segment was so random! This must be the only Johnny's (or even Jpop?) DVD in existence to include something like that. XD

exdream1999 Re: 8th-Dec-2012 06:47 am (UTC)
You can definitely tell Nakai did some of choreography. ^_~ I'm reminded of the end credit of We Are SMAP with the two of them watching the staff take down the set.

I'D LOVE TO GO BUT I'M BROKE. (For real though, while have of it is SMAP and Arashi related things, I have to pay my city taxes and my company screwed up, so I have to pay two payments at once this months. ;_;)

I am going to go through and figure out which singles I need to get because I'm missing some B-sides going back all the to s.m.a.p., and that just won't do.

At first I was so confused, because, yeah, that was the last thing I was expecting, but I was dying at the end. ONLY SMAP.
stbluemoon 8th-Dec-2012 07:43 am (UTC)
I remember reading an interview with the choreographer who did Crazy Five, and he said that Nakai provided most of the ideas for the choreo while he just helped to materialise them. I've been hoping the two would design concerts together again ever since Nakai passed the role over to Shingo, and I'm glad they did this year because the results have been spectacular. *___*

By the way, are you going to try for the secret party lottery? I'm looking for someone to give away my application code to... I could never use ticketbo because I don't have a keitai/address in Japan and anyway I'll never be able to make it thanks to work. TT___TT

If you don't mind 2nd hand stuff, I'd recommend looking in BookOff for old singles and albums, I've found lots of those for really cheap there, and many of them are in superbly good condition. O_O It might be harder to find singles from the 8cm era in there though, but those are all over Yahoo auctions. ;)

I started watching from Disc 3 first, so I had just finished the Memories of GIFT segment and was all ready to move on to the main concert when it started, and I was all, "Eh?? WTH is this?" XDDD
exdream1999 8th-Dec-2012 10:08 am (UTC)
Crazy Five has Nakai all over it. XD
I really love this concert's set up and concept. Holy crap.

I'm totally trying for the secret party! Work will just have to deal with me taking the day off if I get in.

I'm definitely going to check Book-Off first. I actually got a bunch of their older albums for 200yen there.

I don't think I could ever watch from disc 3 first, it would drive me nuts that I was watching things out of order. So, that was the last thing I saw, I was so confused at first.
stbluemoon 8th-Dec-2012 06:46 am (UTC)
This year's concert was really good, and I think the DVD was filmed/edited pretty nicely too. I'm liking this DVD more than their past few ones too!
exdream1999 8th-Dec-2012 06:50 am (UTC)
Yes, totally! I especially like the audience cuts from this year's, the last few I would get annoyed, but this time was great. (Did you catch teh white chick in the audience during the ending part? That alone got Victor my love.)

Though nothing beats this chick they cut too in the Pop Up! Tour during Nakai's solo when he rips open the one dancer's top.
stbluemoon 8th-Dec-2012 08:14 am (UTC)
I was thinking the same too! I thought the overhead shots of the audience from the back during Crazy Five's chorus ("So faraway~") was pure genius, the view of everyone's penlights as everyone did the hand movements with the guys was so beautiful. *___*
(I noticed her too! Wonder if she's someone around here)

Those shots must have been for Nakai's enjoyment of the fans' jaw-dropped stunned fascination as he was trolling all of us.
exdream1999 8th-Dec-2012 10:12 am (UTC)
I love the shots of the parents with their kids. Or, just shots of kids in general. SO CUTE.

OH!! The reactions of those girls during Tsuyoshi's solo when he falls off after being "shot".

The woman's reaction was great, she was so scandalized at Nakai doing something sexy during his solo. XP
csaca 8th-Dec-2012 07:05 am (UTC)
Noticed just from this preview really, it's awesome, nice editing gives so much to a concert!
edneichon 8th-Dec-2012 07:37 pm (UTC)
