(sho and his english) – i should say it was pretty clear
(arashi show time) – more of junba show time =p (air acrobatic)

(re(mix)able dance) – 43:00 – 49:30 is the best!!!! i love love love love love dancing arashi~

___
SO, HERE’S THE HIGHLIGHTS:
1. Bountiful juntoshi moments (including ohno’s kiss)

2. Aiba was mercilessly bullied.
Watch the members teasing and laughing at him for whatever he said from opening greeting to MC to thank-you speech.

3. Rap, rap, and rap.
I guess they really made the rapper work this time. If a song contains rap part, rest assured that the rapper’d sing his part.

4. Arashi Show Time

5. Remarkable “Re(mix)able Dance”
Truly cool and impressive!! I can watch this part over and over again without getting bored.

WHILE THE DOWNSIDES:
1. No “Mada ue wo” (and “Don’t Stop”)
So if you’re like me who’s dying to see Mada ue wo being performed, prepare to be disappointed. How come they left out those two when the concert is to promote the album??

2. No “Dear Snow” and “Hatenai Sora” yet

3. No tour digest this time.
Dunno if we’ll ever get to see aimiya kiss or Sakumiya SK parts

4. Few songs sung in full, even the solos.
I think only T.A.B.O.O. is sung in full. Dunno about Come Back to Me. It’s Jun’s solos only that i cant stand listening to (no offense).
Album-wise, only Movin’ On, Summer Splash, Mukae ni Iku Yo, Let Me Down, and Gift are fully sung. In total, 6/17 is quite low imo. I personally think they put full versions on wrong songs. They should’ve performed those from the album in full and not the older songs.

5. Limited dancing.
Dancing Arashi is <3. I prefer seeing dancing Arashi to watching them merely waving hands at the audience. I never attend a live concert before, so idk what the audience prefers. But seeing such a HUGE stadium, i doubt they could even see the members clearly.
Another comment, i’d be grateful if the cameramen would give us full-body shots when they dance instead of keep switching from one another and giving us close-up shots. I want to see the choreo when they dance, not their individual faces! You can do it when they’re waving hands or standing still.

IN A NUTSHELL:
It was a good concert but not a nifty one. Maybe i was expecting this concert too much that, honestly, i am disappointed by it =( I’ve watched four concerts so far, and i still like AAA TOKYO followed by TIME best.

Idk why, but Arashi looked somewhat tired and less energetic during the concert with the exception of Aiba. Almost losing his voice, he was still in full energy.

I can see they put a lot of efforts into this. Many new tricks and attractions shown (from super high water fountains to lighting dances to flying slings to illuminating clothes).

But as usual, MatsuJun invariably gets the best treatment. His solo is always the most creative and ‘complicated’ and includes the most concepts (from flying to playing a game to laser to lights).

Disappointed by how only a few songs sung in full (and no MADA UE WO!) and accompanied by dance movements, but it pays off to see the rapper put into full use.
