L’Arc~en~Ciel 2nd Live Viewing was FREAKING AWESOME!!!
This is the second Live Viewing held in Jakarta, I have written my post of the first Live Viewing in Indonesian Language (Silakan baca disini pandangan mata saya di Live Viewing pertama), tonight, I decided to use English to write my report of the second Live Viewing. I have informed about this live viewing in my previous post about Laruku.
Inside the cinema+in the screen
As you can see in my sticky post and on the right widget, my number one band in the world, the only band I have loved so damn much for the past 11 years is about to come to my country (although I am a bit worried with the situation in Indonesia…Dear God, please don’t let anything happen that can cancel my only chance to see them LIVE). Before their concert, they kindly let us see their concert in Osaka which they broadcasted (Live Screening) in Korea and other countries. When I heard about this second Live Viewing, I was so happy and determined to see it no matter what. This concert has not been released in DVD yet and I don’t know whether they will ever release it or not. Unfortunately, not many seemed to know this fact because this second Live Viewing was not as full book as the first one.
The cinema might not be as crowded as before but the audiences were crazier than before …and that included me I couldn’t stop dancing and jumping and singing along all through the show which was about 2,5 hours. Read more of this post

I know its a bit late to share these information but I am still going to share it anyway
As I have shared in my previous post about me getting the ticket, the race to get the ticket was quite intense.This is just a brief info of what I have read through out internet and from my friend. I usually don’t give care about ticketing, but this one is special….it’s L’Arc~en~Ciel’s concert in Jakarta!! I want to know how it goes.
There were 4 quotas of ticket selling.
During the pre-sale (January 27, 2012), they were sold online in RajaKarcis.com:
The VIP Tickets were sold out in an hour.
Premium Tickets were sold out in less than a day
Regular Tickets were still available till the next day Read more of this post

Setelah menghitung hari dan menghitung jam dengan tidak sabarnya, akhirnya hari yang ditunggu2 datang juga
Untuk kali ini, saya tulis dalam bahasa Indonesia karena pembukaannya dengan bahasa Inggris
Mungkin tidak ada yang sadar kalau saya mulai menghitung mundur hari menuju Live Viewing sejak 3 hari lalu pada widget sebelah kanan saya. Rasanya ga sabar banget pengen cepat2 datang ke Epicentrum dan nonton concert yang sebenarnya saya dah tonton hampir sepuluh kali … hehehe maaf saya terlalu kecanduan L’Arc~en~Ciel.
Saya Janjian dengan beberapa teman dan duduk terpisah-pisah. Saya di B-18 dan19, harusnya duduk bareng Nina, teman kecanduan saya.Kita berdua dah sama2 kecanduan Laruku sejak sepuluh tahun yang lalu. Tapi sayangnya dia batal datang karena terjebak macet. Dia akan datang tanggal 11 nanti (tentunya saya juga datang lagi ). Jadi saya culik Delima untuk duduk dengan saya di seat barisan B. Sementara, Ajeng, teman kantor saya dan adiknya, di barisan C. Dan rombongan dedengkot jejepangan angakatan lama (ga enak nyebut angkatan tua…hehehe karena sekarang yang sering datang ke acara Jejepangan udah generasi baru semua) duduk di barisan M.
Para pembeli tiket yang menitip pada komunitasL’Arc~en~Ciel Indonesia mendapatkan stik fluorescence warna warni ala penonton di Live 20th Anniversary tersebut. Saya sudah menulis review concert 20th L’Anniversary itu di bulan October. Read more of this post

I have loved L’Arc~en~Ciel with all the passion and admiration for over 10 years now (next year will be my 11th anniversary of loving this amazing band). 10 years have passed without a single thread of hope to ever seeing them live in front of my eyes. All I can do is listening to them through CD and DVD for over than 3650 days …but now, heading to 11 years, I see hope and feel a fresh wind blowing toward us, Cielers Indonesia, that they might come.
I forgot the exact time, probably a month ago, Oishi Masahiro (大石征裕) – Music producer and engineer representative Shi_Gurupu Maverick Dee. Chairman, General Federation of Japan Music production (音楽プロデューサー・エンジニア兼マーヴェリック・ディー・シー･グループ代表。一般社団法人 日本音楽制作者連盟 理事長。) – In short, Laruku’s manager – came to Jakarta. I was wondering whether he had good news or bad news.
Then, to my utter delight, this announcement showed up: Read more of this post

This is going to be my favorite post of this month because I LOVE writing this concert review. It’s been a while since my last concert review. They just had a long break, so not many concert DVD was released in previous years. The latest concert review was Are You Ready? また ハ-ト に火 を つける! In Okinawa.
L’Arc~en~Ciel, the first reason I made this blog and the only band I want to see before I die (meaning that I don’t mind if I can’t see other bands as long as I live if I can see them at least once). This band has been around for 20 years…quite a long year for a band and hoping that they will never break up. Last May, on 28-29, they held their 20th anniversary concert which they called as 20th L’Anniversary….how I love to be there…but I couldn’t (this is the time where I regret I don’t have plenty of money).
I would act the same if I was there
If I am not mistaken, it was in 30 May 1991 when they first held their performance in a small club seen only by 120-130 people…and look at them now. 2 days sold-out concert in big arena…what a beautiful scene
They are currently touring around Japan in their 20th L’Anniversary tour. They will visit Bangkok, London, Paris, and New York next year. I hope they will visit Indonesia, or at least Singapore…I will come and see them if they come to Singapore. I am currently in the process of making a passport in case they decide to perform in Singapore….just to be prepared. Read more of this post

I have missed writing my L’Arc~en~Ciel monthly post for 2 straight months, as their biggest fan I regret this unnecessary hiatus. I promise NOT to let that happen ever again.
I have been planning to write this post since last month but Time was against me. This month, followed with the next three months,I am going to start a new monthly series. Laruku has been around for 20 years now, quite a long history of music and style. I want to share some of their styles in this past 20 years.
Let’s begin with Hyde.
To know more about Hyde, you can read it in The Most Handsome One : Hyde.
One post CANNOT cover all his ever changing styles, I am merely covering the outline or the surface of his style. His style will be based upon Laruku’s album period/era.
In the early 90s, Hyde often dressed like a female…and he is much prettier than I will ever be
There were 2 styles of female with long hair in album period of Dune, Tierra and early Heavenly. He had long wavy hair with with renaissance kind of dress in Dune and Tierra and then started having long straight hair in late Tierra and early Heavenly.
Isn't he the prettiest man alive?
