ZIYOOU-VACHI
ZIYOOU-VACHI was one of the bands new to the event. Just like coldrain, they also did a full length song for soundcheck. Joining in with the test, fans pulled out their iconic colorful Juliana fans. The band name appeared on the side screens and the vocalist, Avu-chan, began dancing for “Kinsei” and “Venus”. Avu-chan regularly changed his voice into a girls’ voice through microphone, and the effect was like the band has two different vocalists singing to each other in “Baishun”.

“Now I’m calling a special guest! Do you want to see J-OOU-VACHI?”, joining “J” and “ZIYOOU-VACHI” together. “Let’s call J-chan!”, Avu-chan welcomed J from LUNA SEA on stage and played “Desuko” together. J left them for their new single “Half” which was pop and catchy. Some audience members danced around for the entire song.

However ZIYOOU-VACHI’s last song “Tsugeguchi” perhaps left the most impact on the audience. The overall tone of the song was rather creepy. It begins with a girl’s giggling voice and then old Japanese children’s song “Kagome Kagome” tuned in. Avu-chan singed and acted during the song like he was performing a short play. The band not only made the audience enjoy the first part of the day but also created an unusual ambiance in the hall.

The BONEZ
In 2012, the former members of RIZE and Pay money To my Pain joined together for an alternative rock band, The BONEZ. Their set opened with “Until you wake up”, which immediately grabbed the audience’s attention. From the beginning to the end, The BONEZ wouldn’t let the crowd stop jumping up and down. J (LUNA SEA) again made a surprise appearance and played “Hey, You”.
