The momentum of the group that manifested. Show a performance full of laughter, tears and passion!
One of Johnny’s Jr. bands gaining traction right now is Ae!. The set list was mainly composed of songs from Kansai groups, such as Kanjani Eight, Johnny’s WEST, Naniwa Danshi, etc., whose backs have been seen so far, and strongly highlighted the color of Kansai. Of course, not only senior songs, but also 8 original songs were performed. Despite the fact that the group was formed on February 18, 2019, it is also surprising that there are many original songs. That day, they performed “Bokura Ae! This song is a member introduction song written by all members of Ae! and composed by Akiya Sano. From the lyrics, it turns out that Mr. Kusama, who is half and half and good at dancing, likes senmaizuke and doesn’t like burgers! is a pro at fast guitar playing and every character is fully understood. Mr. Suesawa, the eldest, shouts “I love you” in a quiet voice, and Mr. Fukumoto plays the familiar “windshield wiper” gag. The group Ae! is a collection of 6 unique people. Like a Kansai idol, it’s like a new comedy! A story illustrating the end of the love between Yoshiko, a familiar character played by Sano, who is called the group’s live-action perfect attendance prize Ae!, and American police Richard III, played by Kusama. Masakado is Yoshiko’s mother, Kojima is Yoshiko’s father, Suesawa is Yoshiko’s younger brother Sei-chan, and Fukumoto is a dog (a thief disguised as a thief). Amid an exquisite tempo of bokeh and tsukkomi, Mr. Fukumoto’s familiar joke “Wiper!!” also appears. In the MC, there was a lot of excitement, like the inside story of the skit where Mr. Sano practiced kung fu for 4 hours just for Yoshiko to show off her kung fu skills for a while. After the MC, after Kanjani Eight’s “Omoidama,” “A!!!!!!!,” a dance lecture video that became a hot topic when it aired live on Johnny’s Jr. Channel. Before singing, Mr. Kusama became a choreography teacher and everyone practiced. Fans on site also mimicked the choreography to move the room up and down and unite. A cheering song that encourages you to have a dream that surprises you with a smile as good as the sun and fills you with happiness. In the final push, the group performed “Stray dogs.”, an original song by Ae! A hard rock track written for them by Johnny’s WEST’s Tomohiro Kamiyama. It’s fun that the names of the members are included in the lyrics. With head-shaking choreography, fans in the room are excited. As the fireballs flew, the band performed “Oh Yeah!” from Arashi, where Mr. Suesawa and Mr. Fukumoto sang back to back, and Mr. Masakado and Mr. Richard huddled together. “Hands up !” Suesawa-san’s passionate screams made the pens rise higher and higher. And the six people who confessed their feelings after completing their first live solo arena. First, Mr. Kusama looked at the fans on the site waving their penlights and said, “If I try to beat everyone who’s waving their penlights, I’ll get tired (laughs). Please deliver it. We are also sending energy. Let’s exchange energy. We will do our best so that we can have a place like this again, so let’s aim for the top and enjoy walking together from here .” And a big smile. Afterwards, Mr. Fukumoto said, “It’s in the title, but A from the west! The wind is blowing. I really feel the momentum. Naniwa Danshi made his debut, Kanjani Eight performed at Nissan Stadium , and we are now. Standing in the arena… I formed Ae! There may be even bigger dreams waiting for you once your dreams come true. Everyone, in order to make your dreams come true , we will also support you, so let’s support each other. Mr. Suesawa, who was impressed by the way he nodded when he said, “Everyone, Ae! The group is now the time to recommend it,” said, “Ae! I’m glad everyone enjoys and makes fun of what we think is fun and interesting, and I hope we can continue to have that kind of relationship. I t ‘beg? From now on, Ae! The group will keep moving forward. It won’t stop there. Mr. Sano, who was at the back of the performa nce from the dome of Johnny’s WEST live this year, said: “I have a lot of regrets that such a senior couldn’t win, it’s too incredible, but I think there is definitely an atmosphere that only Ae In the meantime, he talked about watching Kanjani8 live at Nissan Stadium. “This summer, I was able to see the huge outdoor scenery of a stadium, and my dreams are widening again. We will fight seriously from now on, so please follow us.” re on this stage.” The band can become invincible. So from now on, we can fail, and we can make a small mistake, but every time we get up and move forward even if we are on our knees. I think That’s the royal road for Aee! Finally, Mr. Masakado, who was in charge of MC, spoke deeply after watching the light of blue pens lit by fans on the site. “There were times when I thought I wouldn’t be able to meet everyone this year. It’s nothing precious. I’m happy to see everyone’s faces and to be able to play. As Kojima’s famous saying goes, we are all Aee! Let’s create more memories together.” Fans in the venue violently waved their penlights at such a warm welcome. The scene where the six people’s individuality exploded was the encore of Kansai Johnny’s Jr. song “Kansai Island.” This song is a song that sings to provide Kansai’s entertainment in a very joyful way. Aee!’s live show overflowing with passion will make you feel that they are still a group with endless possibilities and a margin of growth.
