(Group) predia
« on: July 26, 2011, 06:52:28 AM »

Pre-dia is a "party" themed, new-gen™ pop group that most PASSPO fans are familiar with. Pre-dia and PASSPO are "sister groups" and share the same production agency, Platinum Passport, and choreographer Natsumi Takenaka. Pre-dia are often the opening act for PASSPO "flights" and it's common for random members to appear in the blogs of the other group. The group debuted in November 2010, the name pre-dia being an abbreviation of "pre-diamond" (based on the phrase "diamonds in the rough").

Pre-dia released their first single "Dia Love" on 2011/01/26, and their second single, "Dream of Love", was released last week on 2011/07/20. "Dia Love" peaked at #160 on the Oricon daily chart, and appeared on the chart three times. On 7/23 "Dream of Love" hit #27 on the daily chart.

pre-dia "Random news of the week"™ 
Reiko is currently a Jenga spokesperson and will appear in a new commercial for the toy.
http://www.takaratomy.co.jp/products/jenga/

This week she's been doing store appearances and fans are able to play Jenga with her with the giant Jenga blocks from the first pic. Like I'm jealous of people playing Jenga with her, please. That would be super pathetic... :cry:

Thanks shura.

In case anyone was wondering, a pre-dia concert is called a "Party" (kind of like a PASSPO concert is called a "Flight").

Highlights from their first solo concert

New Member
A new member joined the group on 11/9/11. Her name is Sakurako, she's 21, and made her debut at the concert.



Sakurako's blog http://ameblo.jp/3ko-0808/

Three new songs
They performed three new songs: Honey B, Eyes 2 Love, and One More Yesterday (Akane and Rumina duet).
Their third single is going to be Honey B and the b-side is Hey Boy. Hey Boy is an awesome song. They've actually been singing this song since May, but it was never released so I'm glad it's on the single.
They did 12 songs including an encore of Honey B and Dia Love. They also sang Pretty Lie :wub: (<- That's a PASSPO song).

Pre-dia 3rd Party (1st Anniversary) Recap

This weekend in Tokyo PASSPO and pre-dia both had anniversary concerts. PASSPO's 2nd Anniversary concert was on Saturday at Akasaka Blitz (with pre-dia as the opening act) and pre-dia's 1st Anniversary concert was on Sunday night at Shibuya REX. Shibuya REX is a new club that opened last month and is about a 20 minute walk from Shibuya Station. It's a small venue with a capacity of 250 people (or one baby Tyrannosaurus REX).


The entrance and birthday bouquets for Rumina and Keiko

On Saturday it had rained all day, but on Sunday the weather was perfect. There were double rainbows everywhere!! *kidding* Upon arriving at REX fans were gathered outside the venue street fighting and breakdancing hanging out, as opposed to huddling under umbrellas and overpasses to get out of the pouring rain. I only saw three or four girls at their concert, so I was amused when I read a blog entry by a Japanese fan who wrote there were a lot more girls attending than normal, lol.

Opening Act for PASSPO's 2nd Anniversary Flights
Before I get to their solo concert, I wanted to briefly recap their opening act performance at PASSPO's concert the day before.

For the day concert they performed:
Dia Love
Honey B
Kimi Mitai ni
Diamond High Heels


For the night concert they performed:
Honey B
Dream of Love
HEY BOY
Dia Love



The day concert was pretty tame, I think in part because their set list was mainly their slower, ballady songs... and the fact that it was a concert at 13:00. They performed their more up-tempo dance songs at the night concert. Ok, that's it for that... I said it would be short :P

3rd Party
In addition to being their first anniversary, the concert was also celebrating Rumina and Keiko's birthdays.

White and teal glowsticks were handed out to fans with specific instructions on when to activate them. Since I can't read Japanese I cracked them immediately once the concert started *kidding, again*. The instructions were to activate the teal glowstick when Rumina and Akane sang Eyes2Love and the white one during the encore. But what if there wasn't an encore?!

Before the live started a staff member asked everyone to move closer to the stage to let the stragglers in. The place was already packed but everyone moved closer to the stage. A few minutes later the same guy asked everyone to move even closer, lol. The staff then explained it would ok to take photos, just without flash. The lights went out and the concert started with Dia Love and Diamond High Heels. I was surprised that they were wearing their original outfits (the costumes from the pic in the OP. PASSPO should have done the same and performed in their original outfits, oh well). There was a brief MC before singing the third song HEY BOY, which is one of my top 3 pre-dia songs. And then *drumroll* they debuted a brand new song called Do the Party!!. It is amazing!! The choreography is really fun and it just rocks, I think it's going to be their new theme song.

After the song conclude the girls lined up for the first real MC segment. They asked the crowd if they liked the song and then the birthday girls Rumina and Keiko talked a little.

pics from ciento-cuatro blog

The group left the stage, the lights went out and a projector screen came down. The PV for Honey B was then shown for the first time. The PV is basically them dancing, skipping, jumping, and frolicing in a grassy park. It was pretty low budget XD. Well at least they're getting PVs, it took a while for PASSPO to get them :P.
After the PV ended a "fashion show" was performed with the group split into two sub-groups, the first group dancing to a Kara song and then the second group danced to Namie Amuro's NEW LOOK. Akane then sang one of my favorite J-pop songs ever Heavenly Star by Genki Rockets! She was awesome and while she sang each girl came out one at a time and tossed a flower to the crowd. Marina's flower hit the ceiling and landed back in her hand, so cute XD.

Reiko after tossing her flower and Akane singing. (horrible iphone pic)

The girls left the stage except for Rumina and Akane who sang the duet song Eyes2Love (b-side on their new single). Everyone activated their glowsticks and did the whole "glowstick thing". It was glowtastic™!

After a brief MC they performed five songs: Girl's pre-dia Party (cover of PASSPO's Girls Pajama Party) :wub:, One More Yesterday (a unit song featuring five members), Dream of Love (my favorite pre-dia song), Kimi Mitai ni, and their "last" song Honey-B.

One More Yesterday /crappy pic, hehe

A few seconds after their last song, a guy already started the encore chant :lol:. When the group came back on stage they had changed into personalized 1 year Anniversary polos that were given to the group by some fans. The back of the shirt listed all the concerts they had done during their first year:

This is the last horrible pic, I promise

For the encore they sang Do the Party!! and Dia Love again.

White glowstic time

I was glad they sang Do the Party again because I really wanted to hear it again... and it could be months until that song is going to be released (as a single or on their first album). The show concluded with singing happy birthday to Rumina and Keiko. They announced their next "party" would be at Shibuya O-WEST on 12-1-14. This is a pretty big venue upgrade. I remember this place as one PASSPO has performed at and has 600+ capacity.

Highlights
During the handshake Rumina, Marina, and Reiko remembered me from their July event at Saitama :oops:.
Terumi, Mai, and the newest member Sakurako are really pre(dia)tty! But Reiko is still my favorite :wub:
Do the Party!!,  Dream of Love, HEY BOY and the covers of Girl's pre-dia Party and Heavenly Star were my favorite performances.

After the live they had a handshake/2-shot event. I did the handshake and got my second 2-shot with Reiko.

This is what the tickets for the after show activities look like

Review
Honestly I didn't know what to expect from pre-dia's solo concert. They aren't as active as PASSPO and they don't have a huge catolog of music yet. I was actually worried that the club would be half empty. It turned out the concert sold out, and was probably overbooked. Every time I see pre-dia they exceed my expectations. They are a really good looking group, their music is amazing and their choreography is great. The only disappointment was the concert only lasted one hour.

Yay I was waiting to read tihs! I love the photos too. Akane  :wub:

I've seen so many tweets about pre-dia's new song and reading about how amazing it is from you just makes me even more excited to hear it and see it being performed. *___* Along with "Girls pre-dia Party"! LOL that someone blogged there were more girls than usual but you saw very few.  :lol:

'Dream of Love' is your favourite pre-dia song and the b-side 'Kimi Mitai ni' is mine. :) I hope someone has uploaded 'Honey B's PV to youtube since the single came out yesterday, I can't wait to hear a better quality of it as well as seeing it. I don't mind that it's low-budget since their previous has been plus all of PASSPO's indies PVs were really low-budget as well. Nothing wrong with low-budget PVs though of course. XD

Are those the same carat tickets from last time? If so, YAY you were able to use them! And it's so sweet that some of the girls remembered you! Especially Reiko!

I hope they release their 1st album soon. I need more pre-dia songs in my life - and pre-dia things in general. I'm so happy for them for celebrating their 1st anniversary especially since I was able to watch them perform live over a year ago (okay on USTREAM but it still counts! :P).

I really need to post in the pre-dia thread more lol. D:

^ Yup those are the cards I used. I was so glad you told me I should try to use them, otherwise I would have just held onto them forever XD. I still wasn't sure if they would be valid, but at PASSPO's concert when I was buying my Flight Tickets they were also selling pre-dia goods and they had several stacks of the pre-dia carot tickets! The only disapointment was in previous concerts a 2-shot was only one ticket, but at this concert a photo required two tickets (handshakes were one). So with my three cards I did the handshake and got one photo. I was thinking I should buy some pre-dia merchandise until I realized I only had like 800 yen with me, oops.

I love Kimi Mitai ni also. The choreography is really cute, so it's a fun song to see live. I love Dream of Love because of the chorus part that everyone sings along to. If the limited edition of Honey B includes a dvd of the PV I'll burn it for you. I checked oricon's daily ranking, but they didn't make the top 30 today. They are doing events at HMV and Tower Records this week so it's possible they might chart in the next few days.

^ the oricon daily chart hasn't updated for today (25th) yet so 'Honey B' actually debuted at spot #19. :)

qwiksXnd - I'm glad I told you too.  XD That's weird that they changed the requirement from one ticket to two but at least you were able to get a photo taken, yay!

Marina, Akane and Terumi were in ascii magazine that went on sale 2 days ago:



It's great seeing more of the girls getting in magazines.  :heart:
