Seriously can't wait for the list of attending performers!

If my hopes come into fruition, Asami Imai, Chiaki Takahashi, Aya Suzaki, Sumire Uesaka, Sora Amamiya, and Yukiyo Fujii on the same stage would be godly!

Also someone mentioned that AKB was at this dome back in 2011.

It is monsoon season, isn't it?

Whatever the case is, I've decided I'm going. I've been planning a trip for a long time and this is when I can finally pull the trigger. Just preparing my body for how to obtain tickets.

Here's something I'm wondering about. What are they gonna announce? Cuz, IIRC, last year's SSA announced SideM and details on the movie. Of course, there has to be SOMETHING announced for the 10th Anniversary.

Something in me kinda doubts the PS4 game since it feels a bit too early. Probably gonna get info on MASTER ARTIST 03 if anything. MAYBE something super relevant to Cinderella Girls, although the anime will have probably ended by then, they'd still want to keep the hype going just a tad bit longer at that point.

The first PV for idolmaster 2 was uploaded on July 1st, 2010 which was the 5th anniversary. MA2 was confirmed during the 9/18 incident at TGS 2010. The game released early 2011. This live is also in July. So maybe they're planning something similar with the PS4 game.

I'm surprised that Kugyuu and Chiaking are making appearances but Yayoi and Miki are absent. It's understandable, though.

The cast for the second day is huge compared to the first lol

So I just try to apply 5 of my code for the 10th and found out that they let you use your credit card one time only. meaning that if you use your credit for one of your code you can't use it for another.

And now I've 4 codes left with no mean to use them, if anyone want it just post here and I'll PM you the code.

Edit: PM sent.

If anyone still needs tickets, make sure to add it to the "Need Ticket" tab in the HPT spreadsheet.
In about 12 hours i'm going to determine randomly who of the people on there will get one of my 4 to 5 extra tickets.

Edit: This spreadsheet is for HPT members only, sorry for the confusion. But if i still have spare tickets after that, i'll give them away here.

Put it on the second tab.

I think paypal is the best option to pay. How to give you the ticket is another problem though, since they are shipped to my japanese teacher who is currently in japan, and i don't know WHEN they will be shipped. Maybe we'll just have to meet up before the concert.

About how to ship the ticket, from next month I'll be study aboard at Japan (Hokkaidou) for 1 year so I guess you can send it to my address there. But I don't mind meet up before the live if that more convenient for you.

Sorry, but are you a member of HPT 10th? It's a group of people who collaborated to get tickets and we said that the people in that group get priority. So if you are not, i'm sorry, but you can get one if i have spares when everyone of HPT got a ticket.

A bunch of project im@s members are also part of HPT, that's why i wrote it here too. Sorry for the misunderstanding :(

Come to think of it, it looks like the win rate on the forums was around 20~25%? How'd everyone do?

I mean, HPT says that (some guy on Twitter says that) around 133000 CDs sold for this excluding Im@s CG G4U, which sold 24000 in April alone. The Seibu Dome seats, what... 34000 or so?

Let's just say that there were 160000 CDs/DVDs/BRs/games that were sold that could get you a serial. With a 20~25% win rate, that fills the dome - and that's only assuming that peeps only went for one ticket, which is not true.

Me and my friend went 1 for 5, but we got two seats for two days. How'd everyone else fare?

I got really lucky with 2 hits out of 6 (1x4 seats and 1x2 seats)

On the other hand in HPT there were people with 0/12 or 1/20. Apparently there was a group from singapore which hit 2/66. HPT had about 14 tickets more than we needed.

But about the number of tickets though: they might have sold 130k CDs, but i don't know if every CD included a code. I didn't order one of the CDs from CDJapan because they said there is not code in there anymore. And even if all of them did have a code, we don't know how many of these codes were actually used to apply for tickets.

I ordered all my CDs from there and they all had codes.

Most of the time on CDJapan, there will be a First Press bonus (for Million Live! and SideM, these were codes for the SRs) for those who purchase the CD before the First Press sells out. Not sure if this has to do with the code thing though.
And the codes always seem to expire months (even a year) after the CD even comes out tbh. I wonder =P

Ugh, that's some pretty shoddy luck. We're 5 for 25, so that's 20% on the dot. It looks like some goddess of fortune was looking down upon anyone on the forum. Unless there's someone around that couldn't nab any tickets that hasn't said anything yet.

Yeah, something about an included bonus was struck through, which is why i ordered the theater harmony 09 somewhere else. Interestingly it is written there normally again now, but it could also be that there were 2 lines, one struck through and now completely removed.

Not sure if this is still applicable to you lot, but if there are those who are still struggling to get a certain amount of tickets, have you given any deputy services a try?
The few that I know and use have so far rejected lottery based applications for concert tickets, but I found a site that can possibly process them.

http://www.japanconcerttickets.com/

I submitted a request and I'll see what happens. If they go through with it, it'll be very helpful in future events. If not, the search is on again.

I just wish I had known about this sooner when I had a code that got me in for Day 2, but I accidentally read the deadline date wrong...

Quick question: Are tickets going on sale once the application period ends? Are those sold online or onsite? Sorry for the basic questions, but this will be my first trip to Japan (regardless if I go to the concerts or not) and I've been having a heck of time setting things up.

I don't know if there will be a first-come-first-serve type of ticket sale. Currently there is a second lottery going on, one where you don't need codes to apply.

But animagic4u might still have her spare ticket for both days, maybe you can get that one?

There should be, not at the door but online, but whatever server is used to buy tickets'll be hammered into oblivion the second general purchase starts. I've heard from a few places that it's its own kind of lottery, and you might not always get enough of a connection to get you to the end. They all sell out in like... twenty minutes or something insane.

There's always auctions too, but obviously the man doesn't like it when other people sell his tickets. I don't even know how they'd know unless they catch you handing over cash at the site, but if they find out, they might not let you in. I do have friends that've used auction sites for these tickets before, though, and they didn't have problems.

I was afraid of that. I expected it, though. I considered getting them through auction in the first place, but that's really cutting it close. It's the best/only alternative by that point, though, I guess.

As for the Japan Concert Tickets site I mentioned earlier, good news and bad news. They allow lottery tickets to be processed. Finally! The bad (other than still not getting them even if they tried all they could) is that you must have an address in Japan that they will be able to send them to. They say they'll likely ship them 2-3 weeks before the concert.
Well, I guess this is the bad if you're trying to get the tickets outside Japan and don't know or want to bother your friends there. I'll have to see if my hotel there will hold them for that long or I may have to plan my trip a litter earlier than expected...

That would be cool. I don't want to appear to be rude or make it seem like I'm leeching, though. Really, I was curious if any imas fans from abroad were going at this alone too, but I've come to realize this ticket system kind of makes it nigh impossible ^^'
If things go smoothly on my end and I somehow manage to secure spare tickets I'll definitely let anyone here know asap.

At least a few days ago she was still searching for someone to "relieve" her of her spare ticket. Since she already paid it (won with a credit card) she will lose the money if she can't find someone who wants it (see the previous page). Just send her a forum PM.

What do you mean by "going at this alone"?

Just that; a fan from abroad who decided to finally up and go to attend the event. I've been meaning to give it try for years (been a fan since 2007), and it being the 10th I figured it this was it. This is the first time I've ever tried getting tickets this way, too, though, so it's a little overwhelming for me, but not impossible. As an aside, I know there are other acts in Japan where they do even a more complicated ticketing system that they allow members (of official clubs, I think) to get tickets, but you have to pay to be a member, and not only that you have to pay to be a specific member to get a specific lottery ticket, etc. Anyway, some fans create a system on their own to help with all that, but it's kind of ...intrusive?

I understand how it is, but it just kind of sucks if you just want to get the tickets direct, you know? It's cool that this way the fans who really want to be there will go through the effort (I've been to concerts where there weren't much of fans and the audience were just "hanging out"), but going through this loop de loop... And not even for the actual ticket, but for a lottery... Of something where fans have spent already an insane amount on...

But I digress! Even I don't go, this is all good to know to prepare for next year.

I can really relate, i'm in the same boat as you. I'm a fan since im@s 2 and i wanted to go to the 10th, it being a big anniversary and all, but i had no idea on how to go about it. So i made a new thread here about this topic:

http://forum.project-imas.com/index.php/topic,2219.0.html

I got a lot of useful info here and it resulted in an invite to HPT, a group that worked together to get the tickets by sharing spare tickets won in the lottery amongst each other. There are also a bunch of people in there who went to several events before and have experience, that also helped a lot.

In the end i got lucky and would have gotten the tickets even without their help (i won 6 in total and only need 1 and i organized the shipping of the tickets through my japanese teacher), but all the info definitely made everything easier, including "getting rid of" my spare tickets. Not to mention the things that are about to come until the concert is over.

Btw: i just noticed you only have 3 posts, and all 3 are from today in this topic. So let me welcome you to project im@s ;)

Here's a preview for アイ MUST GO! (I MUST GO!), the theme song for this event. (http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm26400398) It'll be released on iTunes on June 19th. It'll be sung by the same group as they did with IDOL POWER RAINBOW.

Lyricist: mft
Composers: Koji Nakagawa and Keiki Kobayashi
Arranger: Keiki Kobayashi

And here's the lyrics (found here (http://shunei.egloos.com/5846572).)

この道の向こう進んだ先は
どんな未来があるのだろう
その未来を確かめるため
歩いていくよ

そう まだ始まりは ちっちゃい希望なんだ
どこへ進んでも その奇跡が力になる
なんでも始まりは 上手に出来ないもの
何度も迷っては見つけて行く 本当の道

なりたい夢 なしたい夢
誰だってある 叶えたいこと
みんなの夢 一つに並んで
でかい物語作ろう

君がいたから 君を信じて
君と二人で 仰ぐ空

溢れ出しそうな この想いが
ずっと 忘れずにいるよ

この道の向こう進んだ先は
どんな世界が開くだろう
その世界を確かめるため
歩き続けるんだ

This song and it's lyrics are pretty touching, fitting for a 10th anniversary song. Here are the lyrics roughly translated, feel free to edit them.

I wonder what kind of future lies beyond the other end of this path we're walking
Let's start walking to confirm what that future is

Yes, the beginning is still a small hope, no matter where we advance that miracle will become our power.
No matter what the beginning is something you can't do skillfully. No matter how many times you get lost you'll find the true path.

Dreams you want to come true, Dreams you want to achieve, they're something that can be granted no matter the person
Let's line up everyone's dreams and turn them into a big story

Because you were there, because we believe in you, together with you we'll look up towards the sky.

I'll never forget these emotions that feel like they're going to overflow

I wonder what kind of world will open beyond the other end of this path we're walking
Let's keep walking to confirm what that world is

I've decided.
Lack of fulfillment and fun abroad has beckoned me to buy any extra tickets, hopefully 2-day ones, at this point.
I failed the 2nd round lottery that was online, and it feels hopeless to try to buy them the old fashioned way since it might take me a while to navigate whatever website it will be sold on.
I'm on standby on this statement though. Still waiting on that Taiko no tatsujin lottery.

If it's actual grass, it should be fine. I've been to some events where I just parked myself on the grass and enjoyed it a ton. I actually like it more than normal seats sometimes. But I was on a grassy hill with a blanket for 3-4 hours when I saw Fall Out Boy and I don't think I sat down once, so ymmv.

But if it's the nasty plastic stuff with rubber dirt, yeah, it's hell. The "dirt" gets stuck everywhere, it's itchy and gross, and it conducts heat like a mother. Seriously, my yoga class in high school did an outdoor session on our football field and they had to cut the class short because even with a mat it just sucked.

Meanwhile, does anyone have any expertise to share on buying auctioned tickets, or using tickets that you didn't get/win yourself? I'm looking at Yahoo Japan auctions and I'm becoming extremely tempted to take on bids, but I'm highly concerned about auctioned tickets as they can be refused if discovered by Bamco or someone else similar. I just don't want to end up paying for an as-is ticket that becomes invalid without prior knowledge of what I can be getting myself into.

I just don't want to end up paying for an as-is ticket that becomes invalid without prior knowledge of what I can be getting myself into.
That's what I did. After every other service had some issue with acquiring these tickets, I settled with YJA.

The thing is, I won the bid, but I won't be able to pay for it until they receive the tickets, and that's about two weeks before the concert when the seller receives them and sends it out to them (I believe they already paid for it).

From there I have two options; ship express to my home in the U.S. or have them ship to the hotel I'm staying out. I leave a week before the concert dates so it's a bit of a gamble even if shipped the fastest route to my home, so I'll likely do the latter (that reminds me, I have to check with Hotel Gracery on that). YJA can also arrange a pick-up at their Tokyo office, just check with them on that through e-mail.

As for anyone finding out if our tickets are auctioned ones, I don't know. I won't say nothin' if you won't..  8)

But yeah, if none if this falls through, I'll get take a few swigs and then try my luck at the grass field.

Or they meant to do it this way, to echo fans' hope. But either way, it is impossible to shut down the 765pro branch, as they're the core of Project iM@S, not to mention that most fans are here because of them; they're also playing a heavy position in Million Live, so if you shut them down, you'll also shut down Million Live. Thus, Game Over to Project iM@S.

As I said before, they're the first bunch of virtual idols ever seen that release albums under their own identity instead their vocal actresses. Thus NBEI set a milestone as they developed iM@S franchise.

Only a month left before the concert, guys!  Can really feel the hype!!(I ain't even going lol)  Does everyone who's going got their gear ready?  I was looking up the concert merch and damn those light sticks look glorious. 

http://idolmaster.jp/blog/?p=12836 (http://idolmaster.jp/blog/?p=12836)

37 lights total for all the idols, holy crap man. XD  Must be a pain the butt to manage 'em all.  I always wondered how those things work.  And how long do they even last?(If I had those pretty babies I'd want them to last forever lol)  Anyone here with experience in this sort thing wanna share how it's like?



I like this one.  Has all the necessary goods, everything organized and whatnot.(this guy's ready to cheer for that Azusa  ;D)

I used to use glow sticks when going trick or treating. I think they start to dim after a few hours. You activate them by bending them, which breaks open a vial of hydrogen peroxide inside the glow stick, which mixes with some other chemical(s) to produce light.

Those are convenient for most concerts, but I want to make my hands like Wolverine with rainbow claws and wave them around like a madman  ;D

On that note, though, I'm starting to see a few concerts and events these plastic boxes that change color at the same time that attendees wear. The noticed these were used during Mircosofts' conference at E3 this past week, but also used as wrist straps at a Silent Siren concert.

It's cool that they're automatically set to one color all at once during a song at a specific time. Imagine they used those for imas concerts -- and not having to strap pen lights around yourself like Rambo.

Those are convenient for most concerts, but I want to make my hands like Wolverine with rainbow claws and wave them around like a madman  ;D

Yes!  I believe that is the beauty of it all and what makes it so goshdarn fun! XD
Plus there's something special about having personalized "cheer sticks" for each idol.

On that note, though, I'm starting to see a few concerts and events these plastic boxes that change color at the same time that attendees wear. The noticed these were used during Mircosofts' conference at E3 this past week, but also used as wrist straps at a Silent Siren concert.

Woah, those are pretty neat!  But, I still think light sticks are easier to coordinate with(and more fun) and suits the nature of im@s concerts more.(and more fun! XD)

Chemical glowers will fade out to nothing within a short while, you really don't wanna wave blackout glow sticks for the encore, do you?

But... I was kinda disappointed by the quality of I MUST GO!. Although it was released in 320k, but to me, it sounds like 64k on my PC, while all the others are way better than it is. Felt like my speakers were covered with a thick cloth.

I just payed $400 for a CD ticket after several bids and hopped right onto a straight buyout. I hope this concert will be worth it because this guiltiness of spending so much money so easily will get the better of me soon.

I saw a news report clip of imas fans at one event, and there was one who purchased the equivalent of a car (didn't say what kind) on merch. Life of a P was never cheap...

At least you're going for sure now, so you got that. I've been watching imas lives in preparation for this concert and, yeah, I think being there will be worth it  ;)

Better don't ask how much i'm spending on this concert... Flight, Hotel, Tickets, CDs to even get the tickets, producer cards, HPT T-shirt, HPT Jersey, HPT Flower stand, UOs, Penlights, Bus, Offkai and all the merchandise i'll buy at the venue on Friday. It wouldn't really matter if i paid 250$ extra on the tickets (http://www.xanis.ch/images/ugly.gif)

But it is the 10th anniversary after all and im@s means a lot to me. So i decided if i go, i'll go all out.

@nastynate: I think if you buy one of all goods the offer on Friday you end up with a cost of over 300'000 JPY, you can definitely buy an old second hand car for that kind of money.

I think it's fine if you use headphones.  Tbh, I haven't been paying much attention to the quality haha; whenever I listen to it I always get swept away by the feels.  It is indeed strong with this one.  ;D

I'd wish more people went, too. Technically my tickets still aren't in my possession yet, but depending on how that goes I'd prepare to reserve more tickets for next year so others can go-- leaving just a budget and schedule to work out. I guess this is sort of a test run for that, heh.
Hopefully, my Japanese will improve by then, too...

The iDOLM@STER Lives tend to favor fancy lights and videos over any of those kinds of gimmicks. But I still will be interested in seeing what they bring out!

After AX I will have 6 days to rest and recoup (hopefully some funds too!) until I leave for Japan. Almost can't believe it, but it'll be here faster than I realize.
I'm READY as far as what I'll be taking but I'm really winging it as far as a trip goes. Just wander about Japan until it's time for the concert I guess. Hopefully my intuition will pull me through 'cause that's all I have going for me as far as plans.

Hopefully, before then, I might see a few of you at the Imas panel at AX! I don't have business cards to hand out, but maybe a few drinks or $5 footlongs if you're up for it  ;)

Thinkin' of doing Shikoku, then swinging down to Kyuushuu by ferry and hitting up a bunch of places there. Kyuushuu is really rich in history, it's just really far from like... everything. I think I'm gonna give up on hearing back from one guy I know and start going down there on Wednesday or Thursday.

Unfortunately, I realize you kinda have to have a car rented to do Iya Valley. I hear it's a gorgeous place, though.

Let's all cheer together o/
Also, wishing you luck on hotels...Like Naryoril said, it might be difficult if you wait.

Last time I was in Japan, I landed with only one or two nights of stay. One hotel contacted me saying they didn't have any slots open, and that was after I got to Japan. Also, my luggage was delayed by a hurricane. So here's a travelling tip: if you have to go to the 100 yen store to pick up shirts, only get the black ones. The grey ones get semi-transparent with a bit of sweating, and I don't want to imagine what the white ones are like.

Yes, that trip slightly sucked. But I made the most of it, and got to see some cool places.

I got hotel time for the concert at least... but not before or after. I'll see if I can't luck my way into something closer, but one of my friends got a hotel for us out in Ueno. We'd have to leave the dome at 23:00 or so if we want to make it back. I mean, we could off-kai or something, I totally don't mind, but I know two other people going and don't know what they wanna do.

Although when I think about it... I still haven't made P cards. I might have to get them rushed.

I usually travel like that too, mostly not booking anything at all in advance. But it can be really annoying at times (like it was this spring when i was in Japan in hanami season, especially the big cities were almost completely booked out), and this time i didn't want to spend 2 to 3 hours every evening to look for the next hotel. But this time i'm not travelling around a lot, usually i don't know in advance where i'll go to, and usually i travel in off season.

Kyuushuu is a nice place with some really stunning scenery, but like Iya Valley, they are hard to reach without a car (i had one when i was there fortunately).

Heh... well it wasn't like I wanted to travel that way, I just landed and realized most my plans were bust. I had intended on planning out that first week, and meeting up with someone for the second and deciding what we wanted to do for the next then. 'Course, fate would have things differently.

I'm a little tired to reserve places right now, but it looks like Tokyo has a bunch of open spots except for the weekend of the concert (haha), and the rest of July looks pretty good, at least in the few places I've looked.

Oh by the way... maybe a little off topic, but where did you go in Kyuushuu? If you don't wanna reply here, there's probably a topic in General Chatter or something you can post to.

Hardly any foreigner will have their name on the ticket. Apparently they never checked the names on the tickets at seibu dome, simply because it's too many people. And if they do, i'd try to start arguing with the truth: It was the only way to get your hands on tickets as a foreigner.

The dome's capacity iirc is like 70k people.
No way they're going to check.

But- they will check your bag before entering just to make sure you don't have any prohibited items.
(ie. Non-allowed drinks like alcohol, King blade penlights (penlas come in under the allowed size), etc)

How strict is security towards pen lights? I just realized I bought a multicolor penlight that runs off one triple A battery after going off of a recommendation link on Houkago P Time. I'm already trying to come up with ways to conceal it because without it, I only have a suitable, button-battery, black color penlight.

Just gonna say, what if that person's your friend and he bought seats for both of you? And what if the line's so long you can't find each other?

I'm pretty sure my ticket has my friend's name on it, since you couldn't enter more than one name on the lottery. If they wanted to check names, they would've either let you enter in multiple names in the lottery, or they wouldn't let you lottery for more than one seat.

I don't think they got anything on you, as long as you ain't passing cash in front of their faces. That being said... anyone who needs to meet up to exchange cash for tickets shouldn't do that at the Seibu Dome. ^_^;

Exactly. It wouldn't make sense if they refused you because it was not bought in your name. The ticket is already in your hands, paid for. It's usually when you're picking up tickets when they check ID.

13 more days~!

Well, that HPT post also mentioned that im@s concerts ban penlights with triple A batteries. I'd rather try to organize another penlight, one that meets the regulations.

I think the concert lasts for about 5 hours.

I intend to do that. On the other hand i give the tickets away for 20k yen, so basically what they actually cost. I mean, you bought the tickets for your firends, but weren't able to meet up before, they will need to give you the money at some point.

It was off of that same post that I clicked on the link that directed me to that pen light. I assumed since they mentioned triple A powered pen lights are banned that the links to buy penlights that they posted in their article would fit the regulations.  :-\

There is a line group, my line ID is animagic4u if you need an invite.

Also, if I were you Saturos, what I would do is lay the penlights underneath some water bottles which are allowed into the event.
Pretty sure the bag check won't be that thorough. Just don't let them know I told you to do that :P
I bought the Mix Penla Pro that says it has a button battery in it, so those kind should be alright. But just as an FYI, they're discontinuing that line, so I don't know what the stock situation will be if you try to buy one in a store.

Had to spend more than $200 for transportation because the concert is right on Japan's three day weekend where everyone is taking up all the cheap spots in public transportation.
If I wasn't initially interested in riding the Shinkansen at least once before leaving, I would be more sad than I am now at how I could've seen this coming.

Although I never considered camping out around the dome, I did think about getting the last train there the day before and maybe just walk around the area until it was time to line up. It would destroy my sleep patterns, especially for the Day 2 concert, but why take second measures, right? Heh. I might not have to do that...

I checked on Google and it said that it was just over an hour train ride to the dome from my hotel (Gracery Shinjuku):

18 miles apart. I think walking is out of the question... For me, at least. If you're coming from further out, feel free to use it as a halfway point on your way. You don't have to sleep on concrete (trust me, it hurts your back) if you're only one train ride away!

Cool, thanks! Mine is matman125 (or Nastymatty, whichever shows up). Feel free to add me for whatever reason.

Today was expensive :p But it was also a lot of fun and i got some really interesting items, and the Yukipo plush i wanted, yay!

I plan to leave around that time, but I'm not sure I'll leave from Ikebukuro. I was thinking just going there straight from Shinjuku. I think the Ikebukuro ride is going to be full and my hand is not healed enough to shove fellow Producers just yet! But man, that's gonna take up my entire day and then I have to get ready for the next day... Whoo~

I also read the latest imas blog post about not lining up around before then, but I also thought 'what if people line up around the train to leave to the dome?' :o

Anyway, if all goes according to plan I'll have enough to get the goods, get to the concerts and maybe get home to the US, haha.

May be able to do Sunday, I don't think I have any plans. I'd prefer some place inside Tokyo though, so I don't have to worry about trains running out.

If anyone has any suggestions, we could meet up at 9:02 pm and go someplace. ^_^;;

I wonder who the surprise guests will be this year.  Hoping for the return of Haruka Tomatsu with KanaHana and Ryo's seiyuu also this time, so that they can all perform HELLO!! together on stage.  That would be one of the greatest things ever!!!

The only loot I managed to get today: https://twitter.com/matty_125/status/621956267796529152
I had my heart set on the 10th concert lights (765), but that sold out about an hour after I arrived. They're selling it again tomorrow. Was really hoping I could sleep in a little, but I'll be back at it, even if it takes me until Sunday.

It was actually fun to see other Ps and I noticed quite a few foreigners in line for the goods (that I assume that aren't from the forums?). It was also the first time I managed on my own on the Japanese rail system. Quite proud of myself (despite missing a station ...or two), so it was quite the adventure in one day!

Oh jesus... today...
Standing up at 4:15, getting on the train at 5:02, arriving at seibu dome at 6:00 and lining up. Then waiting, waiting and even more waiting. Luckily they had tents for the lines (at least the goods lines, not for the people lining up for CDs though...). At 12:15 it was finally my turn and i got everything i wanted: 1 phamphlet, 2 sets of 765 pro lights, 2 penlight holders, a glass mug, various kinds of towels, a necktie and more. Total price, 70'000 yen... I heard that not long after my turn the first things started to sell out. I then lined up for the CDs for another 2 hours in the sun (burned my arms, i didn't expect to need sunscreen in the morning...), i got all 3 CSs, costing another 10'000 yen in total... At least i made it worth all the waiting time...
I drank 6-7 liters today and only went to the toilet twice... I was back at my hotel at 16:00

I still wonder why i did this, i must be completely crazy
On the other hand it definitely was an experience on its own. And now i'm really hyped for tomorrow and the day after.

About Sunday: It's okay for me to meet up and go somewhere. I won't stay all that long though, i'll probably need the sleep (and i check out from my hotel the next day).

Earliest I could get there was 6:20, and I managed to swipe everything I wanted. Pamphlet, 765 lights, the happi, some T-shirts, and the cap. I was a dope and forgot to bring my bag, so I bought the shopping bag too.

I'm glad it was raining for the morning though. I bought a half liter of sports drink at the station, and that's all I had. Not sure what would've happened if it were hot for the seven or so hours I was there.

If you guys decide where and when to meet on Sunday and drop a line here, I'll see if I can't make it. Don't have Line or anything, just a regular phone, so I can only check this place before I leave for the concert tomorrow. I might be able to get my friend to check the forums after the concert, though.

EDIT: Going to the P meishi-kai in a few hours. A 876 Pro T-Shirt, a Freedom Wars bag, and the cap will give me away. I'll put the happi on once the concert starts.

One verse was sung more than a couple times so Numakura and the accompanying dance group could shoot water guns in front of the nearby audience.
Speaking of which, I wonder what kind of tickets were bought for arena-block tickets... I mean sitting out typically at the usual seats from afar made me think that as well as being jealous that I don't get to see the seiyuus up close.

As fantastic as seeing Hiromi live was, Pon de Beach was probably my favorite moment of the entire concert. Not just the water gun (that's a definite plus tho!), but everyone around my area in B block just went mad with the calls. Watching all the teal pen lights moving wildly was an insane sight to see.

After yesterday I was beat. I sweated all morning in the goods line then before the dome opened I was covered with rain. Not that it phased me much, but I knew I couldn't make it out to the goods line again for the 10th 765Pro lights on the last next day, which sucks, but at least I got the CG set. It can mostly pass for the 765Pro calls, but it doesn't have anything close to red or white so I just turn off the light for Eriko's and Azumi's bits.  :-[
But, yeah, Day 2 I'm just taking it easy.

And man, the line outside the station after the concert was over... Phew! Hope everyone got back okay. After the encore I bolted out 'cause I saw what was coming. Most people hate driving out the parking lot at stadiums but try getting on a train with thousands of people waiting...

Anyway, time or Day 2!

You still have to contend with other people's heads to see what's going on. Unless you're in Arena A (in the middle of the stages), then you'll only be able to see the seiyuu when they get to your part of the arena. You'll be looking up at the screen for anything else.

I think I might pop up in the BD with the seats I got though - one of the cameras was one row behind me. If anyone remembers the first guy to cheer for Kugyuu after Mata ne (or if they heard a faint, lone "Ganbare" in the middle of the song), that was me!

If you see someone dressed as Ryou (T-shirt and jeans DS version) today... that's probably me. I don't think I saw anyone do that yesterday. I'll be gettin' to the dome at around noon. I'll be in the stands today, next to (but not in) the section with the plushy seats, so we'll have a better view of what's going on. I'm afraid we might be a little far from the action, though.

Phew... What a ride that was. I was completely soaked by the intermission. It looked like I wet myself (https://twitter.com/matty_125/status/622698665216323584)!

I was expecting more-or-less a repeat of yesterday's show a bit, sort of like the other events, but they showed quite a bit of love for the CG and ML fans a bit today. I'm also REALLY glad I skipped on getting up early for goods. I swear I was about to pass out at least a couple times during the show -- and I had plenty of water along with me for the show! Had to kneel down a bit and regain my focus, but I was fine from then on.

Sorry I didn't met any of you who went, but I love the group shots I saw on Twitter! If I go again next year I'll definitely be more prepared. This was my first trip abroad, let alone Japan, so I wanted to go at my own pace. And if you never went to an imas live before, definitely consider it. This was a nice location; not a bad seat in the house, imo. Can't wait to see what shots they got for the BDs!

Are you good at crane games? If not it might be easier to just buy the ones you want in shops. You can also find the older ones (try Kbooks for example). Yukipo might be a problem tough, i only saw a single one, and she is watching over me right now.

I was completely soaked by the time of the first MC... they started off with ready, then the cinderella and million live main songs and appended The Idolm@ster 2nd remix, 4 hype songs in a row in that weather...

Imo it was a bit too much of a repeat. I would have preferred if they did other songs instead of furufuru future, relations and overmaster, as much as i like the latter 2 songs, but they already played them yesterday and they are not really allstar songs like jibun restart, masterpiece and such.

What group shot do you mean? With the basketball jersey?
And what seat did you have?

Depends on the set-up, I tend to be very stubborn.

Anyway, the 2nd day was amazing to me. Years of pent up fandom as a foreign P, and I let it all out at this concert. I can only hope I will get another chance to go to another one. I should also consider making a Twitter or something :|
And by the way, what exactly were Mingosu and Nakamura talking about after they sang My Song? I know it was sad, but being all tired and sweaty, I couldn't focus my Japanese skills.

being stubborn at crane games can be very expensive.

She asked if people realized that the 6 who were on stage for my song were all in this together for 10 years. Nu, Azumin and Yumi only joined later and the others were not at 10th.
And then she talked about how they never expected to end up giving a concert in such a place when they auditioned for im@s 10 years ago and stuff like that. I didn't understand everything either.

So it wasn't sad, but extremely emotional nonetheless.

Seats in A58 weren't that bad at all. I had a nice view of everything goin' on. My fingers were all tired out from holding lights between each finger though. And my voice... gaah... I got karaoke reservations today!

I just found and bought the 10th aniversary poster that I wanted from the goods line, but couldn't get, at a store in Akihabara. Lmao.
1200 yen more than the original price, but the only price to pay I guess.

1200 more isn't that bad. I saw The 765 pro pen lights for 28000 instead of 15000. Fortunately I managed to et 2 sets of those. But I forgot to buy a 10th towel... I'm sure they will soon show up in auctions and the like though

Seeing the setlist and all the CG/ML combos really make me wish Tomoka and Ranko were there to do a duet.

The 10th event is long over, but the sales continue!

The Bandai Namco shop is now selling a few 10th exclusives that they had for the concerts:
http://shop.bandainamcoent.co.jp/feature/imas10th/?page=1

Concert lights for 765Pro, CG and ML sets are available. The pamphlet, bag and commemorative memorial panel are also on sale. This is a great chance if you don't want to buy the mark up price on auction sites and shops. Although, I was given a notice that the order I put for the 765Pro lights saying it might be until October until I receive them, so just a heads up. (Still quicker than if I were to line up at the booths...  :-[ )

Yo if anyone's doing a split purchase on any of them, tell me.  There are a couple I'm interested in and I don't want to purchase the whole set.

One of these options is probably going to be a birthday present for my brother, but I can't quite decide which...
If we could get a split going on the forums for the penlights though, I'd be happy to run it.

I'll chip in for the Makoto penlight if you're not saving for that one, animagic4u!

I didn't have her penlight for 10th (just turned off my Rin penlight and did calls with that when it was time ;~;), so I'll get it in hopes Hiromi will return next year.

Blu-Rays releasing in like, 6 months.

Perfect Box (the Special Edition) is 30000 yen, and there are store specials along with a preorder bonus (a B4 poster). There's also a regular edition Blu-Ray for each day (so two of them), going for 10000 yen each, without any of that extra stuff.

http://idolmaster.jp/blog/?p=17565
http://idolmaster.jp/blog/?p=17571

You could literally get a PS4 for the price of the Special Edition... not like that stops anyone.

EDIT: Forgot to mention they release on 8 June, 2016.

Oh, poor Million Live. It really needs a spinoff game with some gameplay in it like Starlight Stage. That way, I could get into it. I guess there's the manga, though I feel like I might be missing a few things not having played ML.

Either way, I'm in that crowd somewhere. But most the time they went to the left, and not to the right. Still waiting for the Day 1 trailer so I can see if I'm in it.

Ah mah gawd, the sound of the calls echoing through the stadium, and that glorious sea of penlas.  ;D

Also, Harami in Tokimeki no Onpu? Wow.  ;)

Lol indeed.  For now, the music is enough for me, but the seiyuus are the ones that make me wanna cheer ML on.

I luv how the performances are like all over the place, some even up near the back so all the fans up there can get a piece of the action too. XD

Actually there were several moments at 10th when i was crying...

have you checked all the tokuten shops? If not, you can find a list of these shops here:
http://www.lantis.jp/imas/10th/

it's only their name though, you'll have to search the online shops, if they have any. I only checked Animate (since i ordered from there) and they are out of stock. most of these shops will require to use tenso.com or something since they don't ship overseas
