SCANDAL on Tuesday night’s (24 Jun) RADIO DRAGON’s 「Doors」programme aka “SCANOMICS”! SCANDAL’s messages straight after the Osaka-Jo Hall live will be aired on this episode, but firstly, we have some post-live comments from the fans. One fan said, “It’s been a long time since my last live but it was high from the start till the end and I had a lot of fun”, while another went, “The passion was amazing, and so was the WAVE and the harmony." Another fan then comments, "It was fun getting to see SCANDAL from all angles and also their gestures" whilst another female fan said, "You couldn’t have imagined anything starting from ‘DOLL’. I was gasping when MAMI did ‘Koe’! I never thought it’d come.”
SCANDAL’s OJH backstage comments are aired next. MAMI speaks first. She says to stand in front of 12,000 people and see such a scenery had made her feel extremely blissful. For Tomomi, her second time at the OJH was more relaxed (as compared to the first) and it was fun being able to see everyone’s faces carefully. Rina says that although it’d been raining before the live that day but here are people from overseas and from all over the country gathered together and as this live had been extremely special, she was glad to have had a good time. She wishes to do this again and see everyone’s faces once more. Last but not least, Haruna says her second time was more calm but despite that, she couldn’t stop feeling excited right from the start till end. She felt relaxed seeing all of the audience at the 360° stage, and she wants for another time to happen.
The band continues to speak about how the excitement outweighed the nervousness, and they’d really been able to see audience during the performances this round. They also learned that they had a good response from everyone about the setlist and breathed a sigh of relief as they’d given it a lot of thought. Rina says they’d been going through this without forgetting the element of surprise and she’s happy for this. ~Now, we’re back at the studio for the rest SCANOMICS! In the studio, the band still continues the 360° talk, from the stage to the upcoming Yokohama Arena lives.
After ‘Yoake no Ryuuseigun" plays, Haruna says about how you can also check out the Yokohama Arena lives via TV even if you can’t be there live. She then reads out some messages that will be going for the Yoko-Are concerts. One male fan says it’s his first time going to any live and he’s feeling nervous going for the one on the 28th. He’ll be alone but he’s absolutely looking forward to it. Another male fan says he’ll be going for the 29th June live and it’s also his first time. As a fan of SCANDAL, he’s also bought DVDs and CDs in anticipation for this time’s live and to remember the members and the songs. He will be looking forward to the live while imagining how the setlist will be. The band is very thankful for this. Last but not least, another fan that will be attending the Yoko-Are lives as well. He will be attending the bus tour. Rina and Haru promotes about how the bus tour’s goodies are really attractive, and you also get to get to the tour goods first.
The weekend is coming up and as the band’s first time doing 2 days at the Yokohama Arena, they will put all their strength into it. After “Departure" has played and the regular promos are done, it is the SOBOKU corner. And on this week’s SOBOKU, the question is: ‘What popcorn flavour do you like?’ Haru and Timo are quick to say salted, and Rina also agrees. (There’s some discussion and they change it to salted buttered popcorn.) Timo notes that there are plenty of flavours such as caramel and all. Mami says recently there’s a caramel and cheese flavour even and when she ate it, it was delicious. Timo even had a cream soda flavour before. But after all, it seems like salted buttered flavour is overall the best.
