|This is where the live was being held.|
To be honest, this LIVE wouldn't have been high on my priority list, and considering my budget constrain (microeconomics, anyone?) there were only three main motivation for attending.
- It's very close. The event was held at Yokohama Akarenga (Red Bricks Warehouse). That's basically as good as my own backyard. And it's christmas, so a guaranteed lively place and illumination (in case your wondering, yes it's an english word, but only used in Japan, meaning that they put lots of light bulb decoration for the night).
|I truly like this picture. I'm no master photographer, but I think this is gorgeous.|
- Nostalgic artist. Flashback to AFAiD #1 (2012), 7!! was relatively an unknown band, both for the anison universe and the mainstream japanese music enthusiast (native and overseas likewise). And they were great. I have fond memories of them. And of Aniki, ANGELA, Bless4, KOTOKO, and LiSa. And also the disbanded Stereopony and Sea☆A.
|How time flies.|
- I got invited by friends. And yes, this is most probably my main reason. Most of my friends in the college has zero interest in Japanese Pop Culture, and maybe zero point zero zero something interest in the whole of Japanese culture. If any. Not even samurai or ninja. Oh come on guys, even JJ Abrams loved AKB48.
|I just dropped off the subway at Sakuragicho Station.|
|Walk for a little bit.|
|Voila, Akarenga (Red Bricks Warehouse Shopping Mall).|
|The last time I noticed a LIVE held here, it was outside. But nothing here today.|
|It turned out to be on the third floor (3F) Hall.|
|So many people queuing on the stairs, from 3rd floor down to the 1st floor.|
And that's an hour before gate open.
|First song, I think was Yowamushi-san.|
|Here's the band posing inside Akarenga.|
|Here's my favorite song of theirs.|
|A little bit of Santa added.|
|Here are the girls posing inside Akarenga.|

|Yep, finally I'm going here.|
