Shinken Extra Flamberge Montauban Night
For both events, they let in around 30 minutes before the event started, at 17:00 and 19:30. They let in by numbers. It was an all standing event, and people stood wherever they wanted.
I was number 55 for the first live, and number 7 for the second. There were probably 80 tickets sold, but there were some no shows at the higher numbers.
I stood in the second row dead center for the first event, as many people just spread out. For the second event I stood in the front row, slightly off to the right. There seemed to be more people for the second event.
Both sessions were around one hour each (excluding the presents corner and the poster session), and were pretty similar. There was more talk in the first session, as Arai Miwa only came for the second session.
The songs for the two sessions were as follows.
Sawako was wearing the same "Flamberge cosplay outfit" that she wore in the January (Shinken! Shinshun Standing Live) event. It was a grey school uniform type blazer and skirt, a black hoodie, white blouse, blue tie, black over the knee socks, and brown shoes. It was a pretty good cosplay of her character. Sawako's hair was straight for both sessions.
Details of the events below.
17:30 sessionThe event opened with Sawako walking onto the stage. There was also a guitarist (Mr. Tsukahara) sitting on the right side of the stage.
Sawako sang two songs, "Pigeon Blanc" and "Les Petits Poissons". Mr. Tsukahara played the guitar (a double neck guitar), but there was also the karaoke track playing in the background.
The first song was a very difficult song, and it seemed like Sawako had trouble singing it. She sang it in a pretty low voice. The second song was a cute song, and Sawako sang it in a cute voice. Sawako smiled and moved a lot more when singing the second song.
After the songs, there was a short talk about the songs by Sawako and Mr. Tsukahara (the guitarist and also song writer).
Then Sawako went off the stage, and Reina came onto the stage. Reina sang her two character image songs, "Chou no Yume" and "Butterfly".
After Reina, Shiori came onto the stage and sang her character song, "Koi ha Umauma".
Then Sawako came back onto the stage. Sawako sang two more songs, "Sakurazuki" and "Pigeon Blanc". Then the event ended.
But there was an encore, and everyone came back onto the stage to sing "Ancestral Sin". Then everyone (including Mr. Tsukahara) said their final messages.
At the end, there was a drawing for prizes. There were two signature boards and four signed posters.
20:00 sessionThe 20:00 session started about 10 minutes late. The first song was "Pigeon Blanc" by Sawako. But Miwa was also on the stage, to sing the background vocals. It seemed Sawako sang much better with Miwa singing along.
The Miwa went off the stage, and Sawako sang "Sakurazuki" by herself.
After Sawako, Reina sang "Chou no Yume" and "Butterfly".
Then Shiori sang "Koi ha Umauma".
After Shiori, Arai Miwa sang "Muramasa".
Then Sawako, Miwa, and Mr. Tsukahara came onto the stage. Sawako sang "Pigeon Blanc" with only the guitar and Miwa's background vocals. Then Sawako and Miwa sang "Les Petits Poissons".
For the encore, everyone came back to sing "Ancestral Sin". After the song, there were some final messages, but when Mr. Tsukahara was giving his message, the girls convinced him to play "Ancestral Sin", and they all sang one verse of it.
At the end, there was a drawing for prizes. There were four signed posters and two signature boards.
