VAMPS LIVE XIV – XV | 12.05.2014 NAMBA HATCH

2014.12.05 “NAMBA HATCH DAY 3”

Third day of NAMBA HATCH.
The northern wind is cold everyday, especially in Osaka.
Despite the weather, you BLOODSUCKERS are waiting [for VAMPS] to enter.
With that said, the car windows opened,
“Good morning!”
Everyone, the wind is very cold,
Please do be careful.

Now, in front of the dressing room,
Noon and evening, hot meals will be provided.
Today’s lunch menu [consists] of “Kitsuneudon!”*
Anyway, this is delicious….
Standing up eating because [they’re] impatient.

*NOTE: “Kitsune Udon” is made with thick udon noodles, which is then served in a dashi-based soup stock. It’s also served with a piece of fried tofu. See more here: http://www.japancentre.com/recipes/kitsune-udon

JIN has eaten everything.

From beginning of the live, until after, VAMPS’ dressing room is very lively today.
They looked at funny movies on their computer,
They laughed at talking silly,
Showcase or the impersation of Koji Kikkawa….*

*NOTE: Koji Kikkawa is a Japanese musician. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C5%8Dji_Kikkawa

Yes, such was the mood of VAMPS until
It was rehearsal time.

The floor of NAMBA HATCH is jam packed today too.

During the encore’s MC, it was titled
“The News of 2014”
Each member spoke.
“When I got a tattoo and went back home to my dad”
Was HYDE’s outrageous news.

Well.
After the end of the live, [they] returned to the dressing room
[There were] nice gifts from BLOODSUCKERS!
“I’m——!” (*laughs*)
Arly laughed.

An array of VAMPS—-!

VAMPS LIVE XIV – XV | 12.03.2014 NAMBA HATCH

2014.12.03 “NAMBA HATCH Day 2”

NAMBA HATCH day 2.
VAMPS have totally taken over NAMBA HATCH [and] in spite of it being their first time at the venue, the dressing room is getting cozy.
Gifts and messages of love from you BLOODSUCKERS have reached the dressing room.
Lots of gifts from guests have arrived too.

And today, rice cakes stuffed with sweetened bean jam, “daifuku,” from Isshindou have arrived.*
This is so delicious!
The members said, “This is delicious!” “Amazing taste-!” while clamoring [to get some].
“As far as that….”
HYDE also approached [curiously].

*NOTE: “Daifuku” is the term for mochi filled with sweetened red bean paste (“azuki”) or some other sweet filling.

It appears as if HYDE had trouble [deciding] to get the melon Mont Blanc, but then decided to get the Mont Blanc.*

Well, it’s the second day of the Osaka lives.
[It] started with “DAMNED.”
HYDE was illuminated in red lighting
God or the devil or….
At any rate, HYDE looked so sexy.

 
*NOTE: “Mont Blanc” is a dessert consisting of pureed, sweetened chestnuts topped with whipped cream. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mont_Blanc_%28dessert%29

After the end of the live, the 5 VAMPS members headed back to the dressing room with Arly in the lead.
And then, [there were] cheers for good work in the dressing room~….
Then again,
K.A.Z, [who] had set aside the strawberry daifuku, has his mouth full of food!?
The live just finished!
[He’s] still in his costume!*

*NOTE: K.A.Z is not wearing an actual “costume,” but the clothes he wore during the live. The author simply means that K.A.Z is already stuffing his mouth without changing back into his regular clothes.

Today, K.A.Z was free-spirited.
With that said, the second day of the Osaka lives was successfully completed.
“K.A.Z-kun, don’t eat rice!” (HYDE’s voice)
