Shinsei Omega Shinwa
Chikyuu Saigo no Kokuhaku wo
Kimi no Mirai
Hey, how’s everybody doing? Earlier this month, we had a chance to attend Anime Festival Asia 2014 in Singapore, from December 5 to December 7, so we thought, why not attend the I Love Anisong concert as well right?! The VIP ticket originally costed SG$158 per day or SG$428 for all 3 days, but we shared an early bird package with a friend, so it ended up costing about SG$130 for a day lol. Other than that, you could also buy Cat 2 tickets at SG$88 per day or $248 for 3 days, or Cat 3 tickets at SG$58 per day or SG$158 for all 3 days. We only attended the concert on Sunday, by the way!
As we have mentioned previously, by the way, Mi-chan has troubles with his throat, which disabled him from singing for a while until he’s fully cured, and had to lipsync for his parts of the concert instead. He had a cute rabbit mask on during the live to indicate this!
We won’t talk much about what happened before ROOT FIVE’s turn, but first up on stage was FLOW, GARNiDELiA, Eir Aoi, and then ROOT FIVE! There was a short break after Eir Aoi’s turn as the stage staffs prepared the stage for ROOT FIVE, but soon enough they appeared, wearing their costumes for Kimi no Mirai.
They appeared on stage singing Shinsei Omega Shinwa, which garnered some attention from the audience since it’s a pretty popular anisong, and some guys were even singing along!
After this was their MC period, where they introduced themselves to us the audience both as ROOT FIVE, and one by one as the members of ROOT FIVE. “Let’s enjoy this one hour to the fullest!” said Koma’n, as the leader.
Right after that was ROOT FIVE, and while Dasoku, as usual, did not move much in his spot, the rest of the members were dancing along to the song. Even Mi-chan who did not sing, danced along to the small choreography. The members of the audience too, tried their best to follow the dance!
Following that was Chikyuu Saigo no Kokuhaku wo, which is a rather unusual choice but it pumped the audience up for the next two tracks nonetheless!
Not letting the hype die down, ROOT FIVE continued on by singing Kimi no Mirai, their new single which is used for Fairy Tail’s anime’s ending song. In this song too, some people were singing along. As always, Kettaro showed off his rapping skills as well.
To end their set, ROOT FIVE sang Senbonzakura. It hyped up the audience even more, since it’s one of the more well-known songs! Pokota, especially, was good at firing up the audience. He kept encouraging us to cheer, yell, and fist pump together with the song.
That marks the end of ROOT FIVE’s one-hour turn, but the audiences remain hyped up for May’n turn afterwards! It was an exciting live, overall, and we hope to see ROOT FIVE again in Southeast Asia!
