HYDERoom Staff Diary – 05.07.2018

Shanghai
from JIN

*Original Japanese to Spanish translation by Danyciel Takarai.

May 2nd

And finally the 「HYDE ACOUSTIC CONCERT TOUR 2018 – BLACK MASS ASIA -」 has started, and with a load of foreign energy JIN, who hasn’t written to you since October of last year, writes to you this time for the HYDERoom STAFF DAIRY.

And because I am participating in the same position in which I participated in during the International VAMPS Tour, I took some time and I want to send you a report that closely follows HYDE’s activities. And since it is for HYDERoom, I wanted to send you a special report. I hope you like it.

On the first day of the Asia Tour, it was decided that preparations were to be made in advance when leaving the country, in addition to the rehearsal there.

There were many things that had to be changed after arriving at the venue, and being the first day, it was very busy, so the changes had to wait until later. I, who passed the hours, had not had so much tension since the beginning of the year, so then I infiltrated HYDEs’ dressing room. We entered the area after 10 of the 19 hours that had already passed, and now it was barely an hour before production.

And since it was during the makeup session, I furtively entered the room and after exchanging two or three things with Mane-san, I slowly approached HYDE, in a very casual manner.

Umm? I guess it’s because of the feeling of nervousness that he was beginning to feel, he had something around his shoulders. And as if it were the moment before the examination of the matter in which we are weakest, it seemed that he wanted to separate that kind of reluctance with that thing on his shoulders thinking: “Even if it was not a serious situation, like those that are presented as a different situation in life, I want to do this if I can evade it… ”

 

pic01

 

(Could it be that you’re trying to tell us you’re tense by showing that thing on your shoulders?)

If we assume that of HYDE, why is it that he feels that way?

And it was when he finished the makeup and went to sit on the sofa, that he established the reason for it.

He opened his personal computer and the voice that flowed from the iPhone application… It sounded like Chinese (Mandarin).

He was practicing the MC in the local language!

And he began to practice saying: “The pronunciation of Chinese is difficult ~!”.

 

pic02

 

(Isn’t that what you mean when your expression looks so complicated?)

But even if it looks so complicated, he does not stop being a handsome man.

And will the presentation in which we meet this time be the fruit of your practice?

One way or another is a path, but in short, one part has a different pattern.

…When you ask everyone in the room if it’s “Wuu? Woo?” all will answer at the same time, but if hundreds of people start talking at the same time, obviously it will be impossible to hear the subtle pronunciation of the word.

「Wii? Wee?」「Woo!」「U?」(*HYDE’s pronounciation)

Give it your best!

Although, we will change the expressions of the MC’s script tomorrow!

 

———————————

May 3rd

Last night there were a lot of comments with bloody characters (*He’s referring to the Twitter function in which you can write letters that look like they’re made with blood) from a lot of HYDEIST, but then I went to eat delicious Chinese food and drink Shaoxing wine with total happiness, so I only knew that much, but the next day when I got to the area, I started to follow up on the events on Twitter.

And apparently HYDE came back to the hotel and said he drank vodka with soda that he had ordered, in order to absorb the Chinese language.

A few days ago, at the end of the rehearsal in Tokyo, I had drunk with HYDE until we couldn’t anymore, as we hadn’t done in a long time, and he said: “Lately, I’ve only been drinking vodka”, and apparently that taste hasn’t changed, not even here in China. The vodka… of this place is a drink still unknown to me.

And today is the second day, which will be calmer compared to yesterday, but we are still attacked by all the things that we must adjust in each accumulated area, while we are being chased by the time at which the concert should start. And today too, it was an hour before the concert began, when I infiltrated the dressing room.

And as expected, he was practicing Chinese, while the scattered papers of MC scripts were more organized and proportionate than yesterday.

Suddenly, looking at the corner where the wardrobe is, you can see the traditional rocker-style clothes, contrasted with formal clothes.

And he said: “You can make hundreds of combinations with these clothes”, but he himself looked insecure when he had to consider the hats, gloves, T-shirts and besides, all those things that aren’t even seen, and I think it isn’t necessary to do it. Ok, I’m just kidding (XD).

Well, there may not be so many combinations, but there are three huge suitcases only with HYDE’s wardrobe, which came after the luggage and as part of his outfits.

 

pic03

 

(Well, the contents of today have to do with the clothing set-up!)

Inquiring into the fashion that HYDE has in mind.

 

pic04

 

(If all is well, then my work of voyeur begins!)

However, he suddenly discovered me and said “Hey, wait!” And he let me in.

“I’m not happy with this row of clothes, if I show this to the fans as it is… maybe so…” And then HYDE began to change the arrangement of the suits. I failed in my mission as a voyeur, but here are some photos of the clothing line that he ordered and that convinced him that looked good.

 

pic05pic06

 

And taking advantage of the situation, I also included a photo of the hat and gloves.

So we decided to go to the stage of the second day of the concert!

—————————-

May 4th

And how about we go sightseeing in Shanghai on our day off? …Even though none of them had anything particular in mind, the staff that liked Mickey said: “It seems that the Pirates of the Caribbean part of Shanghai is wonderful…” and with that, HYDE simply got excited.

We know that he passed himself off as Captain Jack Sparrow when he disguised himself, but we were going to go only for reasons of attraction… we had that clear, at least to some degree, but the persuasive power of the word “wonderful” was not trivial.

And quickly we set up the “Shanghai Disneyland coverage team”.

So I will also write the details of the total coverage, since I would like to make a special emphasis on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” in HYDERoom because of its charm.

 

pic08.jpeg

 

(Rock star celebrating before getting on).

Although many already know it, the traditional “Pirates of the Caribbean” ride is a relatively calm attraction.

At Tokyo Disneyland, in the beginning, there is a rock and then a drop where the boat moves slowly towards a waterfall, while you can have fun watching a group of animated dolls (Animatronics).

The beginning of “Pirates of the Caribbean” in Shanghai had the same sensation as that of Tokyo. But at first, we felt the incompatibility in the moment that Jack Sparrow came out. And due to the channel the boat turned and the back part was ahead. Waaaaaa! When I thought: There is not a big difference with the “*It’s A Small World”, but the vehicles and the movement are different! We started moving from top to bottom! It was like the unfolding of the film as well as if we were sailing in the ocean on a pirate ship in the middle of a battle, and in that we ran into a surprise, we moved from left to right! (*”It’s A Small World,” is a boat ride attraction at Disneyland with the theme of “world peace”)

The 3D mapping was combined with the CG (Computer Graphics) and a gigantic set, and even with the animatronics, the CG was projected only on the side of the faces as holograms, which tells me that the progress of the technology is considerable. And all the adjustments were beautifully synchronized. The visual effects were truly wonderful, since it did not interfere at all with the feeling of “I am here” and “I am having a personal experience”. (*He means that the effects were so real, that he felt like they were actually in the movie)

And HYDE’s and my reactions at the time of the production of the waves was absolutely “Wonderful!” each time.

We felt a thousand endorphins, and we got goosebumps, and with a smile from ear to ear we shouted: “Wonderful!” “Supeeer!” “Iiinnncredibleeeee!”…

And if I remember correctly, I think it was the same sensation I had during my first experience at Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” in Tokyo.

However, if one repeats and repeats the ride, without realizing this, it is like “confirmation” of the following thought: “Since I like it so much and it is my favorite attraction, I want to see it too.”

And it’s just fun, but when you’re faced with an unfamiliar situation, you’re deeply moved because that moment is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, something that can not be replaced anywhere else.

But we had to return to the real world of peace and tranquility, and we took a break in a restaurant, and again it was a moment to share our emotion commenting: “It really was wonderful!”

 

pic09

 

(The Rock star that can’t contain his emotions)

And then the topic became the trilogy of the movies, and we never tire of talking about the costume he used for the Halloween Party.

And after a little over an hour talking with enthusiasm, HYDE suddenly said a few simple words…

“Let’s go one more time”

And in the second boat today we had to go to the front, in the first seats!

I saw that familiar expression on our faces the moment the photograph was taken!

HYDERoom Staff Diary – 03.18.18

HYDERoomHeader

VAMPS fan club event usually known as “VAMPADDICT -WINTER-” each year, but this year, for the first time, it is held as a HYDE solo fan club event in Naeba!

Entitled, “HYDERoom presents SNOW MONSTER HOTEL 2018!”

What’s that! As HYDE wrote the blog about the result of various problems, he thought about trying the theme of a horror hotel! So we steadily prepared for HYDE’s idea.

Arriving at Naeba a little early, [HYDE] immediately left for the slopes~!

During a break, [he] decides on what to eat at the food court..

 

1

 

The fans wouldn’t expect him to come to a common place such as a food court,
And no one recognized him (*LOL*)

Eventually, he lost to the temptation of miso ramen.

And rehearsals for the performance were planned around the evening at the venue, so YUKI and ASH were called by saying, “Okay in the room” and they started practicing in the room [to be used] for the waiting room.

This time YUKI played the guitar and ASH participated in the chorus, and HYDE sang as the trio formed together.

They were practicing as three people with perfect, raw sounds with no microphone.

 

2

 

After that, we all headed for dinner!

Speaking of Niigata sake!

While delightfully enjoying sake,

TERU of GLAY joined us!!!!

How luxurious of a feast it is

[There was] so much excitement that TERU [and HYDE] drew portraits of each other with an app!

 

 

“In the event we have a picture-drawing corner…”

TERU: “Oh, it’s fun! I want to go too!”

So, it was a rushed decision for TERU to join the event!!! (*LOL*)

The next morning, everyone gathered and headed for the slopes!

 

4

 

Well, here’s a problem!
Who is in this photo?

From the left:
DJ レフティ (Lefy – aka “@LeftyMonsterP” on Twitter), ASH, HYDE, TERU, Yutaka Kyan, YUKI, Pele Kusuda (friendship appearance)

Was ~

Or perhaps I should say, they could just not stay, playing

[They had to] finish the rehersal, change clothes, and the event starts!

But then an emergency situation hit!

I was asked by Mr. Kuro-chan, who had a beard as a prop, but the adhesion was weak, so an announcement was made

[The beard] is ruined, so it must be removed…

“Ok, I’ll draw it~” said HYDE who drew the beard.

 

5

As one would expect HYDE,

[Used] permanent marker! (*LOL*)

That’s how the event started!

[The event] started like the horror movie “The Shining.”

 

6

 

This is the image of the members, but it’s actually an altered image,

Actually, various parts [of the photo] are altered and collaged together.

Kuro-chan’s swept back hair is taken from DiCaprio’s head (*LOL*)

 

The performers are set as characters that are employees of the SNOW MONSTER HOTEL.

Manager: Kuro-chan
Bellboy: YUKI
Chef: ASH DA HERO
Maid: Yutaka Kyan
Owner: HYDE

Everyone’s [role] is well suited!

 

7

 

By the way, special surpise guest TERU also appears!!

 

8

 

I thought he was joking at the table when they were drinking,
I did not think he’d truly come out….!!

TERU is a “guest” who came to stay at the hotel,

It’s supposed to be hospitable, but he became involved in a punishment game for some reason…. (*LOL*)

In the drawing event, YUKI demonstrated a wonderful talent.

For the punishment game, YUKI impersonated Chumimi Blouson* (comedic actress)….

 

9

 

with B, TERU, and HYDE, is it not risky!?

TERU participated in two games – “Picture drawing word game*” (*word game in which the players must give a word starting with the last syllable of the word given by the previous player) and “Musician rating check!”

After the evented ended, they toasted while watching the fireworks from atop the slopes ♪

 

10

 

Day 1 of the Naeba event is not finished yet!

At the night’s DJ event, everyone at SNOW MONSTER HOTEL is drunk and excitment runs through an exciting place!!

TERU and Pele Kusuda who came as guests also came together to the event!

 

11

 

The party continued until late even after the DJ event ended….

Well, our hotel employees had been drinking until late,
Said “I’m hungover” while heading down the slopes in the morning.

 

12

 

Moreover, they all wore matching SNOW MONSTERS parkas!!

Everyone is well-suited

T-shirts and parkas of the event
“If everyone at the hotel is wearing them, then I can identify the SNOW MONSTERS team”
HYDE thought as he designed the items.

HYDE is also watching the slopes.

TERU who appeared on the first day was scheduled to return the second day too!

The SNOW MONSTERS team was united on the second day,
Before the event, they formed a circle of hands (*LOL*)

 

 

13

 

At the rating corner on the first day, everyone who is supposed to be a leading musician made a lot of mistakes,

On the second day, the results were also disasterous with challenges such as sake tasting and bass sound listening….

By the way, on the second day, HYDE held onto the third-class musician spot,
On the first day, he got the result of “fake musician.” (*LOL*)

 

14

 

After much laughter in the game, everyone is ready for a live!

This time,
Since it’s winter, the song “winterfall”
[Then] HYDE sang for the first time live “KISS OF DEATH”
“BLESS” he wanted to sing while watching the Pyeonchang Olympics.
The three songs were delivered.

 

15

 

The event of three hours with laughter and tears for two days was successfully completed.

Then, on the second day, the DJ event burst into
GLAY’s “Yuuwaku” and L’Arc’s “HONEY” as people sang enthusiastically!!

 

20

 

The two-day DJ event also ended successfully,
The next morning, HYDE watched the finale of this year’s Naeba event as well!

Although, it rained the next morning unfornately,
Many people still gathered on the slopes.

This year’s slopes event was had a limited time and place, so if you were at the right place at the right time, you would be able to encounter HYDE, 100%!

But, your cooperation is also necessary!

Although, the place was designated in order for everything to be carried out safely for HYDE (and others), so thanks to everyone for following the rules and awaiting for HYDE’s handshake.

 

17

 

We also received tremendous cooperation from the staff at Naeba Ski Resport.
Thank you very much!

With this, SNOW MONSTER HOTEL 2018 has successfully ended!

Thank you very much to everyone who stayed at our hotel!

Every year, we like to spend the end of winter with you,
We’ll do our best to be able to operate again next year.

We look forward to seeing you come again!

VAMPS LIVE 2015-2016 JOINT 666 – Day 2

2016.01.10 「ZEPP NAGOYA 2日目」

ZEPP NAGOYA 2日目です。
本日もサウンド・チェックを終えて
リハーサルがスタート。
「THE PAST」「FAITH」を合わせ、
「AHEAD」の入りを確認して、セッションのリハーサル。
本日もさくさく進んで
リハーサルは30分で終了です。
VAMPS、今日も絶好調でーす!
img1

楽屋では、映画『スター・ウォーズ』の話で
異様に盛り上がっていたHYDEとJIN。
「R2-D2がさ〜」「ジェダイがどうのこうの……」と、
嬉しそうに話す姿は
まるで少年のようでありました。

リハーサルがさくっと終わったため、
本日は早々に衣装選び。

img2

続いて、K.A.Zも衣装選び……。

img3

ではありますが、
どうも気に入った衣装が見つからないようで
「なんかテンションが上がらないな〜……」
と、悩み中。

ということで、
衣装選びはあとにして、
楽屋のソファでギターを♪ポロロ〜ン。

img4

さて、まもなく本番という頃。
なぜか楽屋ではアーリーとJu-kenが読書です。
急にお勉強でしょうか?
……と思ったら、
どうやらこれは、BLOODSUCKERSのみなさんから届いた
プレゼントのようで、
Ju-kenが読んでいたのは、
なぜか「スペイン語」の本でありました。
img5

この日のJOINT ACTはROTTENGRAFFTY。
とにかく熱いステージで、会場を一気に盛り上げてくれました。
その様子を、準備をしながら楽屋のTVモニターで
楽しそうに観ていたVAMPSのメンバーたち。

そして、VAMPSのZEPP NAGOYA 2日目のライヴは、
1曲目の「DAMNED」から
鬼気迫るサウンドとパフォーマンスでフロアを圧倒。
名古屋BLOODSUCKERSのみなさんは
いつも以上に大暴れとなりました。
