-- 2009.05.02 - "baby blue" release event
Participants were everyone but Morita.
They updated the site with another "surprise" today - once again a lottery like last time, winners got to take a polaroid picture with all participating members. I had #823 which is just impossible with the way the members are picking the numbers...
I miscalculated the time today so I arrived 10 minutes before they started selling, and with today being a Saturday I had to wait in line for 45 minutes, in the heat nonetheless.
Before the handshake event started the usual wheelchair-burden fans got to go first, which resulted in us front row people to get around 15 minutes worth of free time to check out the members. That was quite the experience... Everyone were wearing their Hachitama live numbered shirts and almost everyone wore hotpants. Serina, Yazawa and Ookawa had pigtails.
And by the way, while lining up for the CDs I noticed the guy in front of me was wearing Shinkenger Crocs.
Anyway, since I was among the first few people I just headed home after I was done shaking hands. Since I have nothing better to do on Golden Week I'm planning on heading tomorrow as well...

Participants were everyone but Fonchi and Morita.
Last day of the five-day-streak events. I arrived just in time to get a hold of a CD, different from a whole other bunch of people that lined up just to hear an announcement that they sold out about 90 minutes later. Today is Sakacchi's birthday so there were a lot of weird stuff going on with some of the fans. The members wore the same outfits as yesterday, but with different hairstyles.
Before the handshaking begun they did a polaroid raffle again, but keeping it to 3 people. The last one to announce was Hashimoto's "#121", and while unrelated I was holding on to #1210. After I was done I stayed until the event was over with nothing better to do, but while heading back to the station I happened to look into a passing taxi in which Asahi and two(?) other members were riding.
It went directly to Fuji TV's parking lot so I guess they're really busy today.
Well, that pretty much concludes my reports for the time being. Hopefully I'll get to see them shooting the show in the near future.
News: Seems like our familiar faces are getting a new show.
