OnoD New Mini Album + Budoukan Live

April 16th, 2015
Comments Off on OnoD New Mini Album + Budoukan Live

It was announced today that OnoD will be releasing a new mini album titled “Doors” on July 1st! It will include a DVD and since it is a mini album, it should have all new songs. We can expect him to sing them at this year’s OrePara. In addition to a new CD, it was also announced that OnoD will be holding his first one-man live “Unlimited Door” at Nippon Budoukan! It will be two days: January 16-17, 2016. Early ticket applications will be available with his new CD. The official page for “Project D” is available here.

Hooray!! We’ve all been waiting years for OnoD to have his own live. He hasn’t performed solo like this since the early release events for Hinemosu. He’s sure going big for his first though: Budoukan! It’ll be the same day as the UtaPri live so hopefully it’ll still be a full house. Either way, it’s sure to be a fun live.


DGS Recognized at 9th Annual Seiyuu Awards!

Comments Off on DGS Recognized at 9th Annual Seiyuu Awards!

The results for the 9th Annual Seiyuu Awards were announced this afternoon and the DGS combi won big!

Best Male Actor: Ono Daisuke
Most Votes: Kamiya Hiroshi
Best Personality: Ono Daisuke, Kamiya Hiroshi

Finally Dear Girl ~Stories~ is recognized for the Best Personality award! I’m honestly surprised it took this long. This is the second time OnoD has won the Best Male Actor Award (the first time was in 2010), and Kamiya continues his reign, garnering the most number of votes yet again this year. It has been 4 years since the Most Votes Award has been established and this is the fourth straight time Kamiya has won it. It’s pretty evident why the award is nicknamed the “Kamiya Hiroshi Award.”

A big congratulations to Kamiya and OnoD on their accomplishments!

The Best Personality and Best Actor/Best Actress Award recipients are expected to appear on tomorrow’s AniSpa! radio show. It will air Saturday at 21:00 on Chou! A&G+. A recording of the awards ceremony will also be shown on Chou! A&G+ on Sunday from 14:00-15:30 (during the Re: Hamatora event…).

OrePara 2013 event report

January 2nd, 2014
Comments Off on OrePara 2013 event report

This year’s OrePara was a special one because it would be the last performance for Iwata Mitsuo, aka Micchan.

OrePara 2013 Kobe

This year I decided to fly into Kansai instead of taking the night bus. It cost just a little over $100 roundtrip. The only catch was that I had to fly out of Narita with is a real pain in the butt to get to. Kobe was incredibly cold last year but it was surprisingly warmer than Tokyo this year (all things relative, of course). Since it was Micchan’s last performance this year, his goods sold out rather quickly.

My seats for the first day were 8th row to the left, and for the second day I was third row to the left. As usual, the event started off with the OreParap. It was cute because Iwata started singing the last “saa hajimeyou” a bit too early. He made the same mistake both days in Kobe. XD

OnoD was the top batter for the first day. He wore a suit and had his dancers with him. His set list included: Kiss Kiss Kiss, DELIGHT, Ascending&Descending, Kimi Nashi de, and Monochrome no Niji. There was much dancing during the first two songs. During the instrumental part for Kiss Kiss Kiss, OnoD slowly blew a kiss which had the audience screaming. OnoD also talked about how they had to retake the fruit eating scene in the PV a few times so he kept having to eat pineapples. ^^; This year, each of the performers sung one of Iwata’s songs as tribute and OnoD sang Kimi Nashi de, a song that he’s mentioned many times that he really likes. The song is very nice and with all the emotion it definitely made me wibble.

The event ended with the usual performances of Galaxy Bus and Nemuru Mono tachi he. Continuing from last year, it seems to have become customary to specify certain groups of people to sing Nemuru Mono tachi he.

For the second day, OnoD was second after SuzuKen. He sang Kiss Kiss Kiss, Tori no Yume, Kimi Nashi de, “Arigatou,” and Monochrome no Niji. After Kiss Kiss Kiss, OnoD announced that today would be Yuka’s last performance this year. Apparently due to a schedule conflict, she wouldn’t be able to perform at Ryogoku. Anyway, I was very satisfied with this set list since finally we’ll get OnoD singing “Arigatou” live on DVD! I love the song but it’s always sung on the first day of OrePara which means it wasn’t recorded on DVD. OnoD of course sang it for Micchan and it nearly had me in tears.

Since all the performers were singing one of Iwata’s songs, Iwata in turn sang one song by one of the others. He sang OnoD’s Daisuki on the second day of Kobe, complete with the dance and everything. Similar to last year, they had a little skit and out came OnoD in a dog costume, and Suzu as the father and Morikubo as the mother. XDDD OnoD’s mentioned several times that he’s the pet dog of OrePara. So cute! Apparently he’s named Mosu and when Iwata called him over he excitedly did so and pretended like his tail was wagging. At the end of the song, Iwata sang “M-I-T-S-U-O Mitsuo!” instead of “Daisuke.”

This night’s performance of Nemuru Mono tachi he turned out to be a really special one for my friend and I. They were having smaller groups singing the lines (boys, people from Shikoku, people in their 30s and up, etc) and Iwata actually requested for all the foreigners to sing! Of course my friend and I jumped up and down frantically. Morikubo noticed us and stood in front of us, cheering us on the entire time. It was bliss. Needless to say, I think we’ll be on the DVD, LoL.

Every night after Galaxy Bus, there was a video message from a past guest. On the first day it was Terashima Takuma and on the second day it was OLDCODEX.
