January 30 and January 31 marked STARMARIE’s 7th time performing in Taiwan. They performed most recently at FANCY FRONTIER Cosplay Convention at Taipei Expo Park in collaboration with Lukyou and LittleAKIBA.
Most notably, guest of honor Taiwan’s newly elected president, Tsai Ing-wen, was thrilled by Monya Nakane initiating conversation in Chinese. “You’re an idol from Japan?” Tsai remarked on Nakane’s language ability as the group promoted their March 20 fifth solo show at Taipei PIPE LIVE MUSIC. Taiwanese media flashbulbs went off as STARMARIE presented President Tsai gifts including their single, Mekurumeku Yuuki! (the ending theme of TV Tokyo’s anime, Card Fight!! Vanguard G), and took commemorative photos together. Shots from this scene also made it on to local TV.
※The photos can be viewed on President Tsai’s public Facebook page
Performing from the afternoon, STARMARIE took to the stage with “Mekurumeku Yuuki!”, and “Vocaloids In Love”, a story about – as the title suggests – a vocaloid software and Vocaloid P falling in love. STARMARIE delighted the long lines of swarming of fans at the venue.
In the evening of the 30th (Sat) and 31st (Sun), STARMARIE participated in live events at Taipei’s Jack’s Studio along with Noriko Sakai and Ai Shinozaki. After their return to Japan, STARMARIE will perform a solo show at Tokyo’s Shibuya TSUTAYA O-EAST, and another solo show in Taiwan on March 20. The goal is for all 2016 solo shows to sell out.
