Tears at last live performance in Tokyo

Tears of gratitude at Ayaka's last live performance in Tokyo
21st August 2009

With a Best Album set for release on 23rd September and a planned break from work by the end of the year, Ayaka held her final public performance 'Ayaka Symphonic Concert 2009' at Tokyo International Forum Hall A on 20th August.

The concert was backed by 72 members, including an orchestra of 67. After a solemn orchestra performance of 'I believe', Ayaka appeared dressed in a white tunic and a black long skirt, starting off with 'Koikogarete Mita Yume'. "Being showered with the sound of the orchestra is like being bathed in Mother Nature. Even during rehearsals I was moved and have been looking forward to us working together,"said Ayaka. The hall then echoed with the music of the orchestra and Ayaka's singing voice.

"This song was popular with many people and became a hit, a precious song,"she said introducing the song 'Mikazuki'. Lighted by blue illumination as she sang, basking in the spotlight, it looked like a crescent moon (mikazuki) was really shining down on Ayaka. The tune and the arrangement of the orchestra made it a dynamic and moving performance.

For the second part, Ayaka appeared on stage in a red dress. She belted out 'Okaeri', Yume wo Mikata ni' and 'Arigatou'. "I wrote this song a year and a half ago but it fits me now perfectly. No matter how many times I say 'Arigatou', it's not enough and my emotions overflow." With that, voices from here and there in the audience could be heard shouting,"Ayaka, arigatou!"

"Singing this song makes you feel like opening up to people," said Ayaka as she sang 'Minna Sora no Shita' from her latest single. When she finished singing, the orchestra members presented her with a surprise gift, each personally coming up and handing over a red rose. Surprised, Ayaka was moved to tears.

"I'm overjoyed. My face is all soppy (from the tears). Thank you very much," she said, to thunderous applause from the hall.

"Many things have happened, and many will happen from now on but I will never forget my original intentions. I want to believe in myself and walk forward. I want to savour the present moment and link them with my future self. I'd like to show my feelings of gratitude to everyone with a song." The last song was her first single 'I believe'. The hall quieted down to silence as a single piano played. Without a microphone, Ayaka's voice singing a capella reverberated in the hall, leaving the audience in tears.

"Let's meet again! This has been Ayaka!" Smiling as she waved, Ayaka left the stage. It was a 14-song concert that charmed the 5000 in attendance.


Edit 24th August 2009:
This was her last live performance in Tokyo. Sorry, I forgot to double-check with her schedule.

Koishite Akuma
Episode 7 Preview

From the way Ruka played the piano, Makoto instinctively felt that he was Ayumu. But Ruka continues to avoid Makoto who is trying to find out the truth. Kaito told Ruka that if he were to be honest with her, she would only be too happy to offer herself to him. "The only way you can show your love to her is by sucking her blood," urged Kaito, with a resolve he keeps to himself.

On the other hand, even with an engagement ring from Fuji, Makoto remains distracted. Troubled over finding out if Ruka really is Ayumu, finally she...?

In the end, with no choice but to admit he is Ayumu, Ruka confesses to Makoto.
But right after that, an unexpected "incident" befalls the two of them...!!


From Koishite Akuma Official Blog

A conversation between Nemoto (staff member) and Yuma-kun the other day.

Nemoto : The gyoza in Shinjo is delicious ne.
Yuma-kun : You've eaten them, Nemoto-san?
Nemoto : Yes. Eh? You haven't, Yuma-kun?
Yuma-kun : No.
Nemoto : Rosa-san, Ito Shiro-san, Horiuchi-san, Shintaro-kun, everyone kept saying how delicious they are, really good ne~
Yuma-kun : Is it... I want to eat them na...
To be continued...

There has been many enquiries for the recipe of the "Shinjo's Gyoza" that Yuma-kun wants to eat so next time I'll put it up.

A conversation between Nemoto (staff member) and Yuma-kun the other day. Continuation.

Yuma-kun : I'll definitely eat them this time!
Nemoto : It's fine even if you don't eat them right?
Yuma-kun : Eeeeeh, why's that??
Nemoto : Well, you're a vampire.
Yuma-kun : ... Arienai ...

So said Nemoto who helped with creating the roles.
