Endless Summer Endless Radio
This event was a "reunion" event where several Bunka Housou radio shows from the 1990's were revived for a 30 minute public broadcast. Even though it was mostly a talk event, there were around 10 songs.
The event flowed as follows.
openingThere was an opening narration and an opening video (a few minutes). After the opening video, all of the radio host guests (Kikuko, Manami, Sakura, Megumi, Atsuko, Aya, Noriko) came out onto the stage to talk with the emcee Washizaki Takeshi.
There was a large screen hanging in the middle of the stage. There was a long table for the radio show hosts and staff on the right side, and there were several soft chairs set up as the "lounge" on the left side of the stage.
Hidaka NorikoThe first radio show was Hidaka Noriko's "Hyper Special". It was mostly reading letters from listeners. There was also a voice message by Hayashibara Megumi. At the end of her show, Noriko sang "Mouichido Black Coffee", a song from her idol days.
After the song, Washizaki Takeshi came out and talked to Noriko for a few minutes. They talked about the history of the CC Lemon Hall, which used to be called Shibuya Koukaidou.
Hisakawa AyaThe second radio show was Hisakawa Aya's "Shiny Night 2010". When Aya came onto the stage, she sang the opening song. Most of the show was reading mails from listeners. Then at the end of the show, Aya sang another song, "Koreha Korede Arikana Nante..".
After the song, Takeshi came out and talked to Aya. Aya did some impersonations of Inoue Kikuko and Tange Sakura.
Komori ManamiThe third radio show was Komori Manami's radio show. She read a lot of letters, and at the end read an illustration book. Manami finished by singing "Yell wo Kimi ni", with two of her former assistants.
old photosAfter Manami's radio show, Takeshi came out and showed old photos of the radio show seiyuus on the big screen. All of the seiyuu came out and sat down in the "lounge". They were all carrying drinks (looked like wine).
After all of the old photos were shown, there was a 15 minute break.
Noriko and Kikuko songAfter the 15 minute break, they showed a video of the Sakurai Taisen musicals. Then Hidaka Noriko and Inoue Kikuko came out and sang a Sakura Taisen song.
After the song, they announced that there will be a Sakura Taisen live in December.
Anige MasterThe fourth radio show was "Anige Master" by Toyoguchi Megumi and Enomoto Atsuko. There was a surprise guest, Otakki Sasaki. Otasasa was cosplaying Azunyan (Nakano Azusa from K-On). They talked about the history of the radio show, while showing old photos of the seiyuu on the big screen.
Yamamoto Maria came onto the stage, and she left after a very short talk.
The real guest of the show was Sakurai Tomo. Tomo was wearing a white shirt, frilly flower vest, and matching flower skirt. (I saw this outfit before at some other event. Don't remember which one..)
Some details of Tomo's talk.
After Tomo's song, Megumi and Atsuko sang the Anige Master ending song, first verse only.
Tange SakuraThe fifth radio show was Tange Sakura's "Motto Tokimeki Memorial". Sakura was wearing a long, pink, sleeveless dress with red flower designs. When Sakura came out at the very beginning of the event, she was wearing a short blue one piece.
For the radio show, Sakura read many letters. All of the people who got their letters read will receive a postcard from Sakura. Then at the end, Sakura sang "Catch Up Dream".
Inoue KikukoThe last radio show was Inoue Kikuko's "Ruri Iro Aquarium R". Before the radio show started, Kikuko sang "Hoshizora Keiyu de Todoketai". Kikuko was wearing a white shirt, pink jumper skirt with red flowers. She said it was the same outfit she was wearing 15 years ago.
Kikuko said that the "R" in "Ruri Iro Aquarium R" stands for "rabbit", not "returns".
Kikuko and MariaAfter about 15 minutes, Yamamoto Maria came onto the stage, and they started the "Sasisuse Sonata and Hexamoon Guardians" show. Kikuko put on her white "professor" gown, and she explained the history of "Inoue Kikuko 17 years old" with several slides on the big screen.
After 10 minutes or so of "17 year old" talk, Kikuko and Maria put on their Shiawase Croissant aprons and sang "Yume Miru Tegami" (just the first verse).
Kiku Mari KagekidanThere was a 10 minute audio drama by all of the seiyuu guests.
Dream Power 2010 VersionAt the end, all of the seiyuu guests sang "Dream Power 2010 version". Then the event ended with short comments by everyone.
