Remember the 30 days of D-BOYS meme? Remember that I didn't finish it? Well, since I have threatened promised to keep posting drawings until Erin feels more confident of her own drawing, I decided I need a topic. Let's go back to Day 10.


Really bad art )

I'm getting so far behind because. for the picture days, I need to scan something most of you haven't seen. But at the rate I'm getting around to scanning, that may be next week at the earliest. So that I don't forget that I'm doing this meme, I've decided to just skip ahead to some days I can do off the top of my head.

Day 8 - Talk about your favorite choreography.

Without a doubt, this would be the battle scenes in Karasu (both versions). Choreography isn't just dance, as any marching band member can tell you. The way that the battles were conveyed without actual fighting relied on set design, costume, and props, but, primarily, good choreography. 

Day 9 - How well do you follow their individual work outside of the group?

Of course, I follow what Seto is up to, and try to watch all of his work. But I also pay attention to what the others are doing. I don't always watch their work, but I am far more likely to watch a program with a D-BOY or former D-BOY in it than any other show. 
The rest of the meme rests here... )

Day 6 - Talk about your favorite stageplay.

I think this has to go to Karasu 10. Karasu 4 was great, too. But 10 had Shingo's best performance, Wada being over the top, Seto voicing an axe, Araki flaming, and Channaka's birthday cake... Oh, yeah. The cake was a backstage. But Channaka was on the stage, and that was great! I started to go on and on about everyone, but it's already after 1 AM, so I guess I won't. But it's a great stage, worth watching even though it never got subs. (But 4 did, and it's the same stage, so it is pretty easy to follow from the 4 subs. What, no? I'm delusional.) At any rate, you can still read my initial impression of the stage.

You know what, writing this up, I thought I'd look up important things about the stage, and I realized that our lj com really needs to get on top of some stuff. How is we don't have the stages listed with full casts and performance dates and such? 

Day 7 - Do you watch their live performances/events? (Online or in real life)

I was so lucky this past summer to get to see NTDK 11 and the D☆DATE Summer Live! I hope someday I can see a stage performance live, also. In the meantime, at least we can (usually) buy the stage DVDs.

As for other live performances, I watch the D☆DATE ustreams live as often as I can. Sometimes I can't wake up for them, but TV Guide has been so kind to make them available soon after they air live, so I haven't had to miss any.

Day 5 - Talk about your favorite “behind the scenes” moment(s).

I sadly don't have anything really interesting to say for this day.

I haven't seen nearly enough of the backstages! Or recently enough! I need a backstage night. But right now, I'm going with the NTDK10 scene where Seto says an English word with a perfect American accent. It was just so...unexpected, and he sounded so different.

Man, I gotta carve out some time to rewatch me some backstage!


But for tomorrow's I can be more interesting! )

Day 4 - You also have a least favorite (past or present). Talk about him.

This day is no challenge at all!

Seto is my favorite, but after him, I don't so much rank individuals as group them. 

1. Seto
2. The rest of D☆DATE.
3. Wada, Endo, Yanagi, Zukki
4. Everyone (not already mentioned) who has been in toku.
5. Everyone else.

I tend to think of Group 5 as the ones who will be in toku later. And I don't dislike them. I am just more likely to know them if their role was ever shared by a guy in a rubber suit. 

Hmmm. Now I find myself really wanting to see Tomo at least as a monster of the week. And it would thrill my fangirl heart if Arata gets a toku part.

Counting down the D-BOY days... )

Day 3 - You have a bias (past or present). Talk about him.

See over there on the left? My tags? Have you been able to figure out which one is my bias? No? Girlfriend, we gotta talk.

And we gotta talk about is Seto Koji. My god, isn't he adorable! He looks like a doll baby! Even though his face has become more manly now, it is still one of the prettiest, most naturally youthful faces I've ever seen. And doll baby sings like an angel! His acting is superb! He dances with such grace!

And he likes to vacuum!

I hate to vacuum. So when I have no choice but to do it, I think of Seto Koji and how much fun he'd be having vacuuming, and also that he would probably be judging me harshly for the condition of my carpets. And thus I am inspired to finish a job I otherwise deplore.

See, this is what an idol is supposed to do: bring out the best in you!

When he first started out, his parents pulled him out of his high school and sent him off to Tokyo to live on his own, because it wasn't practical for him to keep living in Fukuoka when his work was in Tokyo. In public, he put on a happy, brave face, but when he alone he felt overwhelmed and lonely and despairing. How he talked himself through those first couple of years of emotional pain because he was determined to succeed really impressed me. And when his sempai were with him, even now, and I see how tender and understanding they are, and that they really bonded as family, it makes me love all the D-BOYS. It's been so lovely getting to see that same sort of dynamic happening with Arata, too, with Seto finally really being in the sempai role and showing that same D-BOYS love for the newbie that he received himself.

Getting to go to Japan this past summer and attend the Summer Live handshake event was wonderful. Girls, they were all as lovely and gracious as you imagine they would be. It's not a fiction. They really are such graceful, beautiful young men. Actually getting to touch Seto's hand was thrilling, though after I went through the line once, I felt that way about all of D☆DATE. Still, Seto is my bias. There were so many people who wanted him to sing again after Kiva, and it would probably have been fairly easy for him to graduate and strike out on his own. But he loves his family, his real one and the one he has in D-BOYS.

And, yeah, that's why I love them, too.

Meme time!

Day 1 - How did you become a fan?

Setooooooooooooo!

I watched Kamen Rider Kiva in 2008, and became fascinated with Seto Koji. So of course, I looked for any information I could about him. This took me to LJ and D-BOY fan journals. I think they're all adorable and talented!
