(Personal review) Period - vistlip

At the beginning I didn't intend to bought the single.
But I can't help it after watching the pv.
So I make an order and amazingly the CD came 2 days before the release~

I order the lipper version and got Yuh's card.
The prince has turned into a princess *smacked*

Now about the songs.
Let me warn you that I'm not a specialist with instruments. I know nothing.
So this review will only based on my feeling. (XD)

1. Period. 
words: tomo, composed: Tohya

I already like the few seconds version. So it isn't strange that I would love the full song.
But the song doesn't have any sound effect like in the pv. Thus make the sound more clear to listen.
I like the music, very full of spirit for me. Encouragement, and hoping for a better future.

"Time went by, and I look back. And I think, I'm not a hero. I don't want to give the life to you. I wanted to smile together."

"Hello, everybody who loves me. I want to walk next to you from now on."

Those above English lyric really made me in tears. tomochin, can you stop making me cry?

The end of the video show a flying ship and I come to think about my words, "Let's walk together to the light". How can I not cry when they are feeling the same as me? *smacked*

The only thing I don't like is...umi's outfit. It's so weird, yet also a creative way to become a costume. (XD)

2. Locoism
words: tomo, composed: rui

Everything is alright with this song. (XD)

3. aim
words: tomo, composed: Tohya, Yuh

My favorite~~~~ the start of the song sounds like a western music. I love it! The whole music, umi's guitar sounds, umi's scream and rap...okay...big possibility I love it because of umi hahaha this one will be amazing and exciting for live!

(work) "TOUR of DUTY": Malang

My first time to go for a work travel. 

I attended a Japanese event in Malang, "Daisuki! Japan, Taiyoutopia", on March 2nd, 2014. 
It took me 15 hours travel by train from Jakarta (Gambir Station) to Malang. 
For the event, I was staying with one of my sister's friend. 

My work at the event were:

1. supporting one of my mangaka who opened a booth at the event.
2. look around for new colleagues.
3. meeting up with some writers from Malang. 

It was an exciting event. But, during it I was more being a fan girl than as an editor (hahaha!) 

Here are some pictures from the event. I didn't took many pictures since I was busy going here and there (as a fan girl XD).

Angelo’s Live Viewing in Jakarta, March 29th, 2014.

It started when Live Viewing Japan made a post about Penicilin and Angelo’s LV for Mexico. I was surprised seeing Angelo will have a LV. Angelo’s official facebook also made the same post. I commented with, “I will watch it if it’s in Jakarta (Indonesia).

Second event happened when Relawan Konser account asked on twitter about which artist would like to have a LV. My answer was: L’Arc~en~Ciel, vistlip, and Angelo. I add it later, “The two later will be a miracle XD”

Then on one afternoon, I was awake with a notification from twitter. Fey-san has mentioned me, “KiRai, Angelo’s LV in Jakarta will be on March 29.”

I was really surprised and thought it was a rumor. Fey-san gave me the link about the news and it was for real. Angelo will have a live viewing in Jakarta.

My first reaction was…laughing hard.
