I LOVED the concert. I wasn't even going to go since I had never heard their music, but I'm glad I did. The dancing and the outfits were awesome. Definitely going to the Q&A panel this morning.

okay.. wtf? Get the names right please. Shuta isn't a lead singer. The one you were referring to was Nissy aka Nishijima Takahiro and the one that raps is Hidaka Mitsuhiro. u_u

That's right...Shuta isn't a lead and he doesn't usually sing that much so I'm going to assume that you mean the really talented guy is Nissy.

And her name is Misako, not Misato ^^;;

Here are there profiles if you need to see who's who:

Sigh, I sat there with photos, but even then I had a tough time telling some of them apart. So who's the rapping one?

We're about to witness history. Attack All Around is, I'm told, the first Japanese pop group to perform at an anime convention in America. We've seen plenty of Japanese artists, of course, but AAA's act is all about singing and dancing—seven performers and not an instrument in sight.


Huh? MAX? dream? A number of solo artists?

i went to this concert and enjoyed it. The problem was that everyone there was so blah. The music was cool but the crowd seemed meh. It was like me and my friends were the only ones hyped up besides a few people scattered around.

Unfortunately that's the case for many mainstream convention concerts.

If...there was...Gackt...then the screm of 1000 fangirls can change it!

I did see some exceptions like Peelander Z at Katsucon. But then again they not only ingaged the audience but pulled them in too. literally to participate and put on a great stage show.

Or the year before with MC chris. But again he ingaged the audience and had a fanbase from sealab and the nerdcore fans.

AAA...well not many people heard of them I guess.

That's too bad Sad But since they're J-Pop and haven't done many anime themes, that makes sense. But I wish I could've gone 'cause I've been listening to them since BLOOD on FIRE! >w<

I was checking this article to refresh my memory on the setlist, and the "ninja" song isn't a ninja song. The lyric you heard is "ii jan ii jan sugee jan" from Climax Jump.
