Backstage in Sendai （＾ω＾ ≡ ＾ω＾）
Aren't our wristbands cool?
It's a keyboard and guitar.
It's been one day since the tour ended, but it still doesn't feel like it...
That's okay, isn't it? To immerse myself in the afterglow for a day or so! Haha
We actually got a double encore at the final in Sendai
and we danced the first choreography that the four of us did together, 「IA IA ★ Night of Desire」.
I was so happy...
At that time we had each member speak,
I want the people who came to see us in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Sapporo, Okayama, and Fukuoka to hear it too, so I'm going to summarize what I said and wanted to say, here on my blog.
DANCEROID's first tour.
No matter what it is, when I'm doing something for the first time I'm more nervous than I am expectant.
After DANCEROID was formed with three members, I experienced members graduating and joining multiple times. Each time I was worried about what our fans would think and even I wondered if I could pull through.
But thanks to our fans who kept supporting and of course our new fans as well, the current four members were able to have a nationwide tour. Thank you very much.
During the nationwide tour I was saved by our fans smiles. Your smiles make us smile and if that makes you happy then we're happy too!
Thank you very much to all of our guest performers who helped us make the nationwide tour so much fun. I contacted most people directly, but even though there were some that I wasn't able to... I was able to work hard until the end because at the end everyone said "I had so much fun!" and "I'm glad I was able to participate!". Really and truly.
I want to do a nationwide tour! I want to go meet the people who are cheering for us all over the country!
I can't thank enough everyone, including our manager, who played a part in making this dream come true! Thank you very much.
I'm awkward, so I can't really say it in person, but I'm really grateful to the members too! I just love them so much! They really are like my family and I can say that about the members that have graduated too so I'm really sad when they leave. Are there any other groups that get along as well as we do? I want them all to be happy. I want DANCEROID to be a group that in the future they'll be happy that they were a part of.
All of these people gave me a push and we went across the country with our motto, "Happy Cycle".
I can't thank them enough. Really and truly.
I usually say this when I do this kind of talk, but we really want to repay you.
So that more people know of us, so that we can stand on larger stages...
We worked hard with that in mind and were able to have a successful nationwide tour.
But, we can't be satisfied now.
I want DANCEROID to become even bigger.
We're a group that started with regular people uploading video to Nico Nico Douga and YouTube. So you can see us at home without going to a live as long as you're connected to the internet. And we're happy just with people watching our videos and supporting us.
It's because we've made it this far that we can't stop now.
I want you to come to at least one of our lives...! I know that we can show you a different passion than you see in our videos. No, we will show you.
It's not going to be smooth sailing from here.
But I still believe that the people who are cheering for us now will continue to follow DANCEROID.
As long as I'm here, DANCEROID will not end.

↑My mother wrote this in reply to me on mother's day.
My mother is really innocent and doesn't really worry. (This is my mom who started living in Malaysia in her early years just because she liked it there...)
She saves me a lot and I'm sure she'll continue to. There are a lot of times when I think I really am her child. Haha
It's okay! Something will work out!
This way of thinking may be unexpectedly important for my perserverance.
The day disappeared as I was writing this entry!
After I update I'm going to switch to one man live mode.
We're going to make it a great live!
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again!! So please look forward to it too!!
