I haven’t gotten around to this week’s SCANOMICS yet but it’s coming [HERE it is!](http://fuckyeahscandalband.tumblr.com/post/80052390328/scandal-on-tuesday-nights-18-mar-radio-dragons) (o´ω`o)ﾉ
SCANDAL; “Everyday” blogpost by RINA☆
“Yesterday was a photoshoot, and today was an on-site recording. It feels like I’m back to everyday life! I like that my everyday is busy. It has been warm today. The wind was so strong that it blew like it was the toughest in Spring, yet it was fun…it’s considerably tough on those with pollinosis and I pity them however…the only member amongst us with pollinosis is TOMOMI. It’ll be good if she can get medicine and get well soon.”
“Ah! Right, right! The setlist for the upcoming 3 Arena shows in June has been decided. It’s pretty awesome. Well, what should I wear? Do look forward to it. I’d also returned from seeing the goods and set. For May, I’m really looking forward to 「Kyu ni Kite Gomen. In Kita」as well! Going to Otaru, Asahikawa, Hakodate, Aomori and Akita☆ Because there’re lesser lives this year as compared to the usual, let us meet properly when we can. It feels like this year will end in the blink of an eye too.”
“Everyone watching on H.I.S’ official site, this is SCANDAL! It’s confirmed that we’ll be appearing at the Honolulu Ekiden & Music Fes 2014, yay! It’s our first time at Hawaii and none of us have ever been there. We thought about wanting to go overseas but who knew we’ll be able to do a first live there.”
“This round, we’ll have a live down at Waikiki Beach in commemoration, and those who participate in the tour can run in the long-distance relay race, then joining the live after the run. It’s pretty tough, isn’t it? But if you don’t feel physically up to it, it is also okay to just join the live. With that, we hope you’ll participate.”
“Also, we’ll be doing our first fan meeting. It’s a first for SCANDAL, and those who participate this time round will get a welcome Lei greeting and a handshake together at the same time. Do you guys know what’s a Lei? We’re also thinking of giving that flowered Lei, the one with loads of flowers and goes around your neck. After that’s the acoustic live. We’re looking forward to it. After that, there’ll also be a commemorative shot with the four of us. We don’t do this much in Japan so it adds a special feel being in Hawaii, leaving good memories. We think that’ll be nice.”
“Adding on, we’ll also give away official goods as presents. What could it possibly be~? We went with something precious. Hopefully everyone would come participate. With that, see you in Hawaii! That was SCANDAL! Bye, we’ll be waiting!”

SCANDAL x AkaKou Tsuno x Negoto Masuda, combined girls performance of close friends
“The live event organized by SCANDAL「Band Yarou Yo!!Vol.5」took place yesterday at the SHIBUYA-AX in Tokyo on 16th March. In midst of the live, Akai Kouen’s Tsuno Maisa (G, Key) and Negoto’s Masuda Mizuki (G) unfolded a mix session.”
“This wonderful session was realised during the middle of the live. HARUNA (Vo, G) introduced Tsuno and Masuda’s appearance, ‘In the past, we have done a combined band event with Akai Kouen and Negoto as 3 groups but today, I think we’re gonna have 2 guests from those groups!’ This caused the entire floor to get all excited.”
“After that, HARUNA told everyone via her words, ‘Let us all 3 girl bands get it up at the after-party yeah! To put this in a way, we are such good friends that we also go karaoke in private. I think from now onwards, we want to go on as a 6-man formation SCANDAL!’ They then delivered a specially organized「Shoujo S」and「Kagen no Tsuki」.”
“Now, other than the performance SCANDAL put up of their 2 new songs during yesterday’s live, they also unveiled covers of the bands they look up to, including a cover medley of TOKIO, and The Rolling Stones’「(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction」. Before the performance of 「(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction」, RINA (Dr) said seemingly happily, ‘Having watched the Stones’ live with the members, I think I want to continue being in a band even if I turn 70 years old! To have a live after such a long time feels like a long-distance romantic relationship, however I once again think that I really like everyone who’s in here!”
SCANDAL; “It Was A Lovely” blogpost by MAMI☆
“Night!! 16th March, and since the date has changed it’s become yesterday. It was the organized event by SCANDAL, Band Yarou Yo!!vol.5 @ SHIBUYA-AX!!!”
Mami further raves about forming the ‘6-man band’ with Maisa and Mizuki, how KANIKAPILA really powered up as compared to last year and she feels that with Maisa and Mizuki, there’s a lot to learn and be stimulated from their playing. As Akai Kouen also just released their new single on 12th March, she hopes that everyone can check them out.
Mami also says that as this is their first live since the EX-THEATER live so everyone’s waited for quite some time for this day. She also adds that she’ll work hard from tomorrow onwards too, and thank all the fans for their smiles, courage and power as always. The photo above is of her and Akai Kouen’s Maisa!
Photos and tweets translated in order:
TOMOMI: “As guests musicians, Mizuki from negoto and Maisa from Akai Kouen were welcomed to form a 6-man band (with us). We couldn’t stop shaking from excitement ever since the rehearsal. A big thanks for coming in spite of both of them being busy as they’re both releasing stuff this week! It was the best.”
Masuda Mizuki (negoto): “Mizuki here. I participated as a guest musician on SCANDAL’s Band Yarou! vol.5 today! SCANDAL, Akai Kouen’s Maisa, O.A’s Kani-chan, everyone who came, thank you all! ＊To be together was the best! Heart throbbing!”
TOMOMI: “After party”
RINA: “Girl power”
All translations today by me as per usual~ sorry for being a little late, I just like to wait a bit so I can throw everything in a single post! Whatever other upcoming photo tweets will all be edited here.
SCANDAL; “Band Yarou Yo!!Vol.5” blogpost by RINA☆
“Just for 1 day today, we have formed a special band! Tsuno Maisa (Akai Kouen) and Masuda Mizuki (negoto). Both participated as guest musicians and performed 3 songs. I was shocked by both of their playing ever since the rehearsal, and as they were so cool they further evolved the songs into something more brilliant. It was super super fun. To be able to appear together made me really happy. It’ll be great if somehow we’re able to come out again together. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!”
“Following on, performing as the opening act were KANIKAPILA who were the winning band at SCANDAL’s Copy Band contest! It’s a 7-man formation band, with members that’ll be becoming 3rd years in their middle school and becoming high schoolers this Spring. It was an energy-filled, sparkly stage! Because they really hyped it up from the opening, I think they created a night that wasn’t cold from the beginning till the end! It was an amazing live where they stood dignified in front of the large crowd! Applause! Thank you!”
“For us, today’s the last live at the AX. There’ll still be all sorts of drama born from this venue up till May. I have too many thoughts about the AX that I can’t quite put it into words well but I’m glad to have done many lives in this place. It was a night of gratitude. As I thought, I like it best being on stage.”
