Reitaisai 9 Report 例大祭9★レポート

Hello everyone! I returned home late last night, so I haven’t had time to write about Reitaisai.

Actually, I’m really unreliable about writing these after-event reports, but I really want to try to be more active about it… especially to offer some English-speaking Touhou fans (and others interested in the doujin community and their events) a window into this world. As for trying to write it in Japanese, it’s good practice for me and offers a different viewpoint from someone who was originally from abroad and has limited Japanese ability. Something like that!
実は、イベントレポート書くこと結構頼りにならないですw でももっと頑張りたいです!英語話の東方ファン(と同人コミュニティ・イベント興味あるの人)のために書きたい!後も日本語で書くは練習のためにです。日本語下手のアメリカ人の視点ですww なんとなくw U^q^)

In any case! Here’s a photo of my table earlier on during the event:

I arrived at Big Sight later than expected because I lost my Suica card in Tokyo Station (it was in my Homura pass holder, which is gone as well) and I was trying to find it.
東京駅でスイカとほむらちゃんパスホルダーなくなちゃったからビッグサイトに遅くて到着しました!w U;w;)

I cosplayed Marisa, but it was really hot… My friend, Ayano, cosplayed Flandre and helped at my table. She was really cute! A lot of people came to visit my table. I’m sorry if people came to see me after 1:30PM, because I left to greet some circles and friends…! I also got to meet more music circles. I’m really happy to have met so many new people!
私が魔理沙をコスプレしましたですけど暑かったww あやのさんは私の売り子さんです。フランドールをコスプレしました。超可愛かったっす!色々な人々が私のスペースに行ったです!13:30時の後できましたの人、ごめんね!私がその時に他のサークルと友達に挨拶しました!今回も色々なかっこよかったな音楽サークルを会いました!本当皆と一緒にあえて嬉しかったです!

Two really amazing music circles were right next to us…! The Shishimai Brothers and Tamaonsen… I really admire them! (DauGe of the Shishimai Brothers really surprised me! His English is really amazing. If only my Japanese could be as good as his English…!)

I wonder if I’ll get to do collaborations with more music circles someday? It’d be lovely!

I didn’t have a lot of time to greet everyone and I had to rush to change my cosplay…
時間が少なかったから挨拶はちょっと厳しかったですwwww 急いでコスプレから着替えた...

Around 3:45PM, the song congratulating ZUN on his marriage started. Because I was in the music circle area, I heard some people singing, and I tried it, too…/// I heard that in other areas, no one really sang.
15:45時ぐらいでZUNさんに結婚おめでとうの曲始まりました。音楽サークルエリアにいましたから歌うの人がいましたw ちょっと歌ってみたw/// 他のエリアあんまり歌ってなかったと聞いた。

I really enjoyed the event! I think cosplaying will be something I do only once in a while from now on because it’s a little difficult and hectic to do so at events in Japan because of the rules and having to change at the event venue for only part of the day… especially when you have your own circle to run! (In America, you can wear your cosplay to the venue and the convention runs all day. A lot of freedom, isn’t it?)
イベントが本当に楽しんでしました!コスプレはたぶん時々だけのことですww 難しいと大変っす...日本のイベントのコスルールはちょっと厳しいと思いますw イベントエリア中着替えて、この時間からその時間までだけですとか、後も終日じゃないです。特に自分のサークルがありますなら結構大変っす!(アメリカのイベントはコスが自分の家・ホテルで着替えて、イベントに行く。イベントも終日です。結構自由っすね?)

I’m really tired but was really fun! Good work, everyone!

I want to buy a portable CD player some time so I can listen to all these amazing CDs on the bus rides home…!
ポータブルCDプレーヤー欲しいなw このすごいなアルバムがハイウェイバス乗るの時に聞きたいですから!

To the people who came to give me their compliments and support, I’m very thankful. Everyone is so kind! I’ll do my best for summer Comiket!

Stand Up

Good evening!


The special page for FELT’s upcoming Reitaisai 9 album, “Stand Up”, has opened! It will be released at the evening on May 27th, 2012.

Again, I have written lyrics for two songs, “World Around Us” and “Free Your Mind”..! It’s a lovely combination of the awesome arrangements of Maurits”神”Cornelis and amazing vocals of Vivienne!
また歌詞を書いた、「World Around Us」と「Free Your Mind」...!MZCさんのアレンジとVivienneさんのヴォーカルコンビやっぱすごいな!

“World Around Us” – 東方妖々夢より  “クリスタライズシルバー” (Letty Whiterock)
Lyrics: Renko
Vocals: Vivienne
Chorus: Vivienne & W.nova & Renko
Arrange: Maurits”神”Cornelis
This song is about the world around us. Because of the way life can be, the way society can be, it is easy to feel oppressed, but we are able to live and change and continue on. Maybe with the power of love? Sometimes we can’t see things clearly for what they are…

“Free Your Mind” – 東方妖々夢より  “アルティメットトゥルース (Konpaku Youmu)
Lyrics: Renko
Vocals & Chorus: Vivienne & Renko
Arrange: Maurits”神”Cornelis
As the title is, it is about walking away from the limits of others and freeing yourself, your heart and your mind.

I am excited to have been able to work with FELT again on this release. I’m looking forward to the release! Please be sure to stop by the album’s page to have a look!
アルバムを手伝うこと嬉しいです。是非特別ページ見てくださいね!リリースを楽しみにしてくださいねw 私も楽しみですww
