This year’s KiraFes is the fifth. It is a major event by Kiramune which pursues new possibilities of voice actors. Last year’s KiraFes was also held for two days at Makuhari Messe and filled with fans (report: http://newslounge.net/archives/74084)
Fans waited happily for the performance while waving their colorful penlight along the songs played at the arena. Then the first song,『Get Together!』was performed. CONNECT (Iwata Mitsuo ・Suzumura Kenichi), Irino Miyu, Kamiya Hiroshi, Namikawa Daisuke, Kakihara Tetsuya, Okamoto Nobuhika, Trignal (Eguchi Takuya ・Kimura Ryohei ・Yonaga Tsubasa) and Yoshino Hiroyuki went on the lift with spangles outfit. The members came from the roof and down to the stage.
CONNECT performed their debut single『CONNECT』at the second performance. After that they expressed their excitement on performing in the grand stage of Yokohama Arena. Iwata said「Yokohama Arena, here we are!」and Suzumura said「We’ve been only performing 2 songs but I’m already so excited!」.
The other members seemed to share the excitement. Kamiya showed it by jumping excitedly during his performance of 『Mirror World』. Kakihara gave his best smile while performing『GENERATIONS』with back dancers and laser performance.
During the intermission, Kimura from Trignal commented about the first song:「I’m sure that everyone saw us fall down, but we saw everyone gradually, the light of cyalume that filled the stage!」, as well as exchanged the feeling. Namikawa showed the thankfulness to the fans through「♪Arigatou」in『Naritai Aritai』 and as if he fixed one eye on the ground for『UTAO』but he changed to megane style and charmed the fans.
In the middle, to take a break, the clip of Kiramune history was shown with member’s comment. For Okamoto’s part, it showed an episode of him discussing with other members about remembering the lyric.「Suzumura-san told me that 『just have fun』」. As well as he cannot find the timing of blinking and said an mischief comment「I want to try my best while blinking (smile)」while being “blinking” character.
During encore, they showed gorgeous performance of each member sang one song while other members enter. While Yoshino’s performance, Suzumura and Kamiya danced with good timing, During Okamoto’s was Iwata, Namikawa, Irino who brought fans with Okamoto’s face, etc. There were full of viewable performance! Two members of『CONNECT』also ran in full throttle from center stage to audience seat.
Final greetings before leaving one last song. Yoshino participate Namikawa’s solo live last September (See: http://newslounge.net/archives/96825) but he participated as a new member starting this time. Since he is a “senpai” as seiyuu, but “Kouhai” as Kiramune member, he commented「I was able to survive somehow because senpais were here. I was really nervous before getting on the stage, but it’s impossible there’s enemies on this stage.」Then Suzumura gave a punch line advice to Okamoto “senpai” and said「Please do winking!」.
When the conversation goes to『Trignal』, Kimura said that Yonaga「was touched and cried the first half」. Yonaga also said「I cried when I saw CONNECT」. Suzumura said「how girly are you!」etc and the conversation was heated up. Okamoto, who is in 3rd year of being a Kiramune member, said「I watched too much light in the beginning」with pain laugh.
Kakihara commented that to stand on the stage of Yokohama Arena was like a dream and was thankful for「receiving a place to be able to sing」. Namikawa is also thankful with a comment「I’m glad to come」, Irino said「It’s because everyone who cheered us is here」and thanked everyone. Kamiya said「Every other members are better than me, I’m standing here with the feeling that I can do much better」.
To『CONNECT』, Iwata said「It’s our first time to come and stand on Yokohama Arena, and I’m touched. I felt wide in the beginning, but I’m glad that this many people came and tried out best」with feeling. Suzumura said「We arrived here while singing with fun. Without fans, we cannot reach here」.
『CONNECT』announced that they will take a break this year. Iwata said「We were able to『CONNECT』with everyone」 and Suzumura said「If Kiramune is a home for us, we will surely back with singing『please let us sing』」. Iwata promised「We will surely come back to everyone」.
