Yeah, but on JCHI they had ADULT to work with, and somehow made it pretty ordinary. I'm guessing that's where the strong distaste comes from. S&T didn't really offend as many people, as it was a VARIETY tour- of course those people were gonna be meh about it/whatever expectations they had were already tarnished by their feelings towards that album. That said, I think they did pretty well considering the material they were working with, plus no stupid visual cut in bits either.

Don't get me wrong, I do like both JCHI and S&T a fair bit, but S&T feels more like a full concert rather than an extended PV to me. Also, of course, I'm going on assumption here- I haven't been into Ringo and co for that long in the main picture compared to some of the older fans here- but I know how I felt when I saw JCHI expecting something as great as the album the tour was supporting. Oh well.

Anyway, that's just my (most likely bullshit) theory on it.

Yep. Phase 2 sucks at rock Gunjou. They should have continued to rework their Virgin Line country version over the years instead.

I can't possibly understand the hatred of everyone here to JCHI, I think it's their best DVD (though Domestic would've been the best if it was released on DVD), their versions of Kiyouiku songs were even better then DO's versions or the album versions

The song I had in mind when I said that....was this.

I use to really like Koda, 2006 was a fun year in her career. I listening to the mirror A-side "Futari de..." when I made the comment. 

I hate her ballads. But I liked the remix for Futari de...

I finally got around to watching this, got up to the first half, just to the end of the ice cream song.

Initial overall reaction:

WTF?!?!??!?!!!

I'm sure I will have a more sedate reaction after watching the whole show and absorbing it a bit. But all I can think right now is: yeah, there's music, singing, dancing, etc., but really this show is about giving people ideas on what to wear for Halloween this year.

I still haven't watched the last half of this. I'm still recovering from the first half, and not in a good way.

THINGS I CANNOT UN-SEE:
  • Izawa in a feather boa and high-heeled leather boots
  • Kameda's copious sweating
  • Saito Neko in a sailor suit
  • Black-clad babes air-guitaring (I assume they're not hooked up to anything)
  • Hata's eyebrow sparkles....and voice
  • Pink afros
  • All 40 pounds of Ukigumo trying to cough up a warble of interest in the proceedings
  • Hinomaru flag big enough to hoist on the fuckin Yamato
  • Various other things I've repressed
Seriously the only things I liked about BV thus far are the opening minutes of Ikiru (I'll be generous and say the whole number), and Ringo's red garter belt.
