So lucky that they were bringing up song from the last album before their hiatus, Nosferatu from “Epilogue” album cheered fans up back to life. Then Daishi stood up again and started to play the opening song Mind Core, continued with coupling song from the new single, Violetta Violetta.
The band was on fire from the beginning. “Let me hear your voice!” powerful vocals immediately grabbed fans’ hearts. The aggressive song with its melodious twin guitars and precise, top-speed drum beats filled fans with excitement. At the same time, Seek, showed his enormous stage presence with his aggressive bass line. In response, fans fist-pumped and shouted together with the three guitarists.
During Ai no uta, fans enjoyed dancing together with Aya while they sung along with the chorus with the vocalist. This interactive style of the band’s live show was at its best when the band played their new song titled “Kiseki wo Shiru Bokura wa Gosenfu ni Saku Kibou wo Utau” even though this is a new song, fans seems enjoyed enough while waving their bracelet lightstick with unified voices and moves created a spectacular view in the venue.
Later on after some songs, they continue the story about their journey looking for “chronos” and also begin MC part. Daishi and Seek started the MC, continued with Lida and Aya. However, the band continued to entertain fans after the play’s end rolled on the stage screen. Now, the five members gathered with their microphones on center stage and the instrumental music of the new song BLADE DANCE started to play. During the song, each member took a vocal part in turns. Psycho le Cému showed fans that they actually have moves during a brand new dance number in which Lida delivered a passionate rap like usual, while YURA-SAMA and fans enjoyed dancing the aerobics choreography together. The song literally turned the venue into a dance floor. The band continued to treat fans with one of their classics Oedo Tabigarasu, and later with a famous song Chronos.
Last but not least, the end would come soon, they played the heavy song so fans, which mostly girls, joined them with head bang and moshed pit around the hall, started with Matenrou Chaos, 2020 (new song), and for last song they played Murderer・Death・Kill. After the light turned off, audience started to shout for an encore. Need a 15-20 minutes until all members returned to stage.

Then Daishi ask all fans to sing together on next song, Michi no Sora.
