BABYMETALのUSツアーに関して皆さんはどんなことを感じましたか?

 今月から始まったBABYMETALのUSツアーはニューヨークとボストンの公演が終わり、今日は移動日となっていましたが、BABYMETALが一時の休息を取っていてもBABYMETALに関する情報は世界中を飛び交い、ライブ会場以外でも我々BABYMETALファンを歓喜の渦に巻き込んでいます。

 まず昨日はイギリスのドニントンパークで開催されるダウンロード・フェスにも出場することが決まり、しかもメインステージに立つということで、イギリスだけでなく日本の音楽ファンをも驚かせようです。

 また、今日発表されたBABYMETALが来月5日に参加するオランダのフェス『FORTAROCK 2016』のタイムテーブルによると、出番はセカンドステージながら後ろから2番目で、しかも55分間の出演時間が用意されるなど、もはや大物扱いとなっています。

 確かにフェス運営側が実力というよりもBABYMETALの人気や集客力に期待して好待遇をしているのも理解の上ですが、BABYMETALがそれだけ世界中の注目を集める魅力的なグループになったということも紛れもない事実です。

 今年の3月に入ってBABYMETALを記事にする雑誌が急に増え始めた頃から何となく予感がしていましたが、その後なんと『KARATE』と『THE ONE』二つのMV大盤振る舞いで点火されたBABYMETALロケットは、Newアルバム世界同時発売のFOX DAYとウェンブリー・アリーナ公演で空高く打ち上げられ、ここに来てのUSツアー開始で完全にワールドスターへの軌道に乗った感じがします。

 それにしても出世が早すぎる。
 先月入社した新入社員がいつの間にか課長クラスになっていたという感じでしょうか?
 ただBABYMETALの場合、入社する前に何年にも渡ってさくら学院で幹部候補教育を受けていたわけですが。

 とは言え、ワールドスターという意味ではまだまだスタートラインに立っただけで、これから更に色々な実力を身に付けて、多くの人に認められるグループになってほしいと思います。
 ただ、ヘイターは今のままいてくれて、色んな所で論争を巻き起こしてほしいですね。その方が更にBABYMETALに世界の注目が集まりますから、ヘイターも重要な役割を果たしてくれそうな気がします。  

 ところで、皆さんはBABYMETALのUSツアーでどんなことを思いましたか?
①もっとほらもっとほら盛り上げてほしい?
②YUIMETALまで英語の発音が良くなっていることが悲しい。
③MOAMETALが面白好きのメイトにご馳走(音漏れ)をしてくれたことが嬉しい。
④SU-METALが国内ライブよりもUSツアーの方で上手にMCをしていることが悲しい。
⑤その他

Natali report on the 2016 Nendo Transfer student ceremony

Sakura Gakuin 2016 Nendo starts things out with the addition of 3 new Transfer students bringing the membership to a 12 member one with Kurashima Sara leading the way as Student Council President

2016 May 7

Natalie report

Kurashima Sara

On May 6th, Sakura Gakuin put on its ‘Sakura Gakuin 2016 Nendo ~ Transfer student entrance ceremony ~’ at Tokyo’s Nakano Sun Plaza Hall.

In March at the Graduation ceremony the three 3rd year Jr. High school students of Isono Rinon, Ooga Saki and Shirai Saki graduated from Jr. High which of course means they also graduate from Sakura Gakuin bringing the membership rooster of Sakura Gakuin into a 9 member unit. At the ‘ Transfer student entrance ceremony’ held today the 2016 Nendo raised the curtain with the introduction of 3 new Transfer students, Jr. High school 1st student, Shintani Yutzumi and the Elementary school 6th grade students, Aritomo Tsugumi and Mori Momoe.

To start things off the current nine members of, Kurashima Sara, Kurosawa Mirena, Yamaide Aiko, Okuda Megumi, Okasaki Momoko, Aso Maaya, Hida Marin, Fujihira Kano and Yoshida Soyoka made their appearance on the stage and started the event with a performance of ‘Verishuvi’. They continued on with performances of ‘Chime’ and ‘Otome Gokoro’ and then did self introductions making use of the theme of their favorite color. In these introductions Yoshida and Yamaide said they like red, Kurosawa said she likes blue, Aso stated orange, Kurashima favors yellow, Fujihira said she likes light blue, Okasaki said she likes the pastel color of purple while Okuda said she likes pink which ‘matches perfectly with Megu’ and Hida said she likes olive green the best.

After performing with high levels of energy and fun, the charming song ‘Hana Hana’ with its cute choreography, ‘Song for smiling’ which highlighted the proficient English abilities of Hida and the Sakura colored flag waving song of ‘Hello! IVY’, the nine girls temporarily exited the stage. This was followed by Yoshida giving it her all to introduce Sakura Gakuin merchandise as her responsibility as the now solo member of the Koubaibu <Purchasing club> due to the graduation last Nendo of her previous partner, Shirai Saki. The event then moved on to a presentation of the new uniforms in the form of a fashion show. This fashion show introduced the charm points of the new uniforms set to a backdrop of a cool dance track.

Mori Hayashi also made his appearance in the home room section of the event. The comical skit routine where Yoshida would point out the main features of the new uniforms while Hida would totally over-react in the manner of a late night TV commercial sales show was met with huge laughter from the Fukei. After this, the event built up in excitement as Mori-sensei and the students talked about the new Transfer students. Amidst the backdrop of all kinds of speculation about the new Transfer students, Mori Hayashi announced that there would be three new members and went on to introduce them through a quiz show like format based on information about the new girls. Following this, the Transfer students of Shintani, Aritomo and More appeared on the stage and went on to break the Fukei into laughter by performing impersonations and other special talents that were revealed in the contents of the quiz show. The now 12 member Sakura Gakuin unit then performed ‘Friends’ and exited the stage.

A Student Council meeting was held as part of the encore which featured announcements about the members of the Student Council and their positions by the Principal, Kuramoto Mitsuru. These announcements revealed that Kurashima is to be the 6th generation Student Council President, the Vice President is to be Yamaide and Kurosawa was appointed to the newly established position of MC committee chief. Being appointed to the position of Vice President while still in the 2nd grade Yamaide stated that, ‘I am totally full of unease about this, but I hope that I can suport Sara and Mirena to go on to create a Sakura Gakuin that will develop as Sara and Mirena envision it to be’. Kurosawa peppered her statement with hope saying, ‘I don’t really yet know what is entailed by the position of MC committee chief but I will do everything I can and not hold back to become a MC that is able to draw out all of the individuality of each member’. The newly appointed Student Council President, Kurashima stated, in a powerful manner, ‘I am not like the other Student Council Presidents who proceeded me in that I was not a member of Sakura Gakuin from the beginning like they all were. I am shy and uncomfortable around people I am not familiar with and so am not of the kind of personality that fits this position and so I am sure there are some Fukei-san thinking to themselves, “Is it alright to have Sara as the President?”, but I want to present to the members and the Fukei-san a Sakura Gakuin that falls in line with all I have been taught by the Senpai that came before me. I don’t want to break the tradition that proceeds from the initial generation of Sakura Gakuin and so I will have confidence in myself and do my best with the 12 members in this year! Please look favorably upon this 2016 Nendo of Sakura Gakuin!’

Following the completion of the Student Council meeting the 12 girls performed ‘School days’ led by Kurashima and the debut song of Sakura Gakuin, ‘Yume ni Mukatte’. In conclusion the girls announced the upcoming event which will focus on the new Transfer Students-‘Sakura Gakuin 2016 ~ Transfer student orientation ~’ which will be held at Kanagawa’s Hamagin Hall Viamare on June 19th and brought the event to a close.

BABYMETAL on Upset Magazine: “There are lot of things we’re unsure of”

BABYMETAL was interviewed on March 30 in London by Upset Magazine before the worldwide release of "Metal Resistance" and their show at Wembley Arena. The interview released on May 5 features the girls talking about their expectations before the release of the album, their insecurities, and what "Metal Resistance" means for BABYMETAL as a whole. Read a summary of the interview with the most important, and the scans below. 

 

There are two stores about where BABYMETAL came from...

One is that producer Key Kobayashi formed the band around Suzuka Nakamoto in 2010 alongside Yui Mizuno and Moa Kikuchi to blend sugar-coated pop with the weight of metal after realising that metal, as a genre, was only getting older. The trio was a subgroup of Japanese Idol band Sakura Gakuin for a while until Suzuka "graduated" at the age of fifteen and BABYMETAL branched out alone. 

 

The other story is that many years ago The FOX GOD blessed three girls with the potential to become heavy metal guardians. Each of the girls, Su-Metal, Yuimetal and Moametal, has their own power to help them achieve this while Kobayashi acts as The FOX GOD's messenger. A Power Ranges 'teenagers with attitude' sorta deal. 

 

Two years on from "BABYMETAL", the band released "Metal Resistance" and it justified all that talk. Charting on both sides of the Atlantic as well as at home, the band also pulled off a confident headline slot at London's Wembley Arena to kickstart a world tour that would eventually wind up at the 55.000 capacity Tokyo Dome. More than that though, "Metal Resistance" is a great album. Debates about authenticity don't mean much when a band is fully commited to entertainment and inspiring a good time. 

 

"We've grown so much and in so many different aspecs," begins Moametal. "We're taller than before", she adds with a grin shared by Yuimetal and Su-Metal. It's two days before "Metal Resistance" is released on what the band, and their fans, have dubbed International FOX DAY. It's a day that will also see "the new BABYEMETAL revealed to the world."

 

"The reaction to the first album was more than we expected," starts Yuimetal. "People really liked it so obviously we weren't sure if we could beat that with our second album. We weren't sure if we could surpass the first album but after listening to 'Metal Resistance', I realised that this album is a good one. I'm confident people will like it."

 

But it's not just BABYMETAL who have changed. Their scene-straddling stance, thought looked at wit ha raised eyebrow, has kicked open door to a world normally ruled by the old guard. They've become a gateway to the alternative.

 

"I'm very happy to hear that BABYMETAL is a stepping stone for people who have never listened to metal before", starts Yuimetal. It's a path all three of them know well. "If I wasn't in BABYMETAL, I might not even been exposed to the music that I've been exposed to today," reasons Moametal. "There wouldn't have been any other way for me to." It's an education the band want to share. "The fact we're able to do this is something we're very prod of. I hope we can continue to do it in the future."

 

"Metal resistance is a phrase that symbolises what BABYMETAL have done since we've been around. This album will amplify it even more," explains Moametal

 

"I'm aware Metal music has a lot of dar elements and people write about things they're unhappy with or not satisfied about," starts Su-Metal. "BABYMETAL has a different approach..." the band wants t people to, "feel happier and feel like the ycan overcomme anything. That's something that's important to us. That's why BABYMETAL sounds and appears the way that we do," Su-Metal offers. 

 

"On this album, we traied a lot of new things so it was difficult at times There's a song "The One", that's recorded all in English, which was a big challenge for us. I realised speaking in English and singing in English are two very different things," explains Su-Metal

 

"When we were younger," starts Moametal, "much young than today," she quickly adds wit ha laugh. "We're still young but when we were much younger, for us the world outside of Japan only existed on TV and in films. It was something that was very far out of reach. We didn't think it would be someplace we would ever be out obviously, we're here today. Knowing that we have fans so far outside of Japan is an amazing feeling for us but we hope we can reach out to more people acorss the world." 

 

Offers Su-Metal: "We're very proud to be the only artist in the music scene doing what we're doing and that's probably the biggest reason people are reacting in the way that they are towards BABYMETAL." 

 

"Why we're doing what we're doing today is because we hope to be as influential as Metallica or Bring Me The Horizon but we're not sure if that's possible. There are lot of things we're unsure of. We don't know whether we can do it but it is something we do hope we can be," dreams Moametal, "One day".

 

"Something we've always said from the very beginning is that we want to create a new genre of usic that is called BABYMETAL," adds Yuimetal.

 

Say what you like, BABYMETAL arent's backing down. Their origin isn't all that important in the grand scheme of things when their future, while unwritten and unpredictable, is racked with so much potential. One thing that's certain though is you can't manufacture a reaction, and thats exactly what BABYMETAL inspire.
