Re: New Tour: Kanpo Seimei Presents DREAMS COME TRUE CONCERT TOUR 2017/2018 - THE DREAM QUEST

DCT shows generally sell out during fan club pre-sale. Since I was traveling from overseas, I didn't want to risk not getting a ticket. But I had to pull strings to use a Japanese address. There are some reputable & not-reputable ticket resellers in Tokyo, but I haven't used any of them. note: DCT f...

Re: Cartoon DCT -- I don't get it

That was my guess, too. She's staying out of most of the blog photos, as well.

Japanese culture can be brutal re: aging, so she might be making the best decision to keep the focus on the music, give or take a few seconds here and there in TV commercials.

Re: Japanese Plugs

Every time I visit Japan I bring a few 3-prong->2-prong adapters. All electronics work fine. -- anything motorized will go into high gear because of the voltage difference (like massagers, clippers, etc.) -- you might notice a slight difference in rechargeable speeds (like rechargeable batteries or ...

Re: New Tour: Kanpo Seimei Presents DREAMS COME TRUE CONCERT TOUR 2017/2018 - THE DREAM QUEST

Opening night October 21 is the day before I leave Tokyo... mental calculations now at MAX!

Anyone else going on the 21st? I joined the Power Plant fan club last time to see Wonderland 2011. Will probably have to go through a reseller this time on short notice.

Cartoon DCT -- I don't get it

For the past few years, DCT's promo images have leaned heavily on the "cartoon" versions of Miwa and Masato. It's sort of turned me off to see these caricatures used so consistently. Feels like a mask that separates the fan from the performer. Anyone else have thoughts on this? http://dctjoy.com/dct...

Re: DCT music video list, also what's your favorite dct video?

Top 3: Nando Demo -- Raw energy. Eternity -- Such a pivotal moment in DCT history, and especially moving in context of their commitment to going all out for America when the country wasn't ready for them yet. I bought a Swan Princess VHS just to get that video. Moshimo yuki nara -- The relaxed groov...

Re: DCT should perform at the 2020 Olympic Opening Ceremony in Tokyo

I just saw a commercial on Japanese TV with DCT performing a "Tokyo 2020 Olympics Support Song"... might be a sign of things to come.

Edit: (found the video link on DCT's official site)

Re: New Greatest Hits Album: DREAMS COME TRUE THE URA BEST! - Watashi dake no Dorikamu

I posted a review of The URA BEST! on NekoPOP today, with a shout out to DCTJoy.

Hard to pick a favorite disc. Lots of deep tracks and fun inclusions from early albums. "Sayonara o matteiru" and "Ginga e no fune" just made me smile.

"Fuzzy Controooolllll-!!!" has been getting heavy push from DCT for a few years now, not just because of Miwa's romance with Juon, but it's a business decision, too. As great as they are, DCT are considered long in the tooth by much of the Japanese public. So they're using their last few years of cu...
