These pictures are from the Meet&Greet in Cologne. Although the rules about taking pictures were pretty strict, a girl managed to get a few good shots and I thought I'd share them.
Found them on a german Anime site and the credits go to -shiyuu (in case she ever reads this xD).


btw. I love how Shou is smiling in the fourth picture *____*

Q144. I've got a question about Mizuki and Kei. They look like love each other. Is that true? Are they a couple?
Aki: I don't know. Please ask them.

After having arrived the day before, we came to the venue at around 5 pm. Opening was at 7 pm and start at 8 pm. This time we stood in the first/second row directly in front of Tetsu. The hall was barley full (later we heard they only sold 143 tickets), so there was no pushing or shoving.
They started with 'end of finale' and Yuuki wore his ripped sotckings over his face and no blood. He also wore yellow contact lenses. This time they didn't start with 'Reborn' but with 'Dust to Dust'. A friend of mine got a part of the Setlist, so I'll just write the first part.
Dust to Dust
unter the skin
Gate of Death
Social Faker
Platonic Bitch

'Alive' war really beautiful and Rai seemed really sad, when they played 'Gate of Death'. The crowd was pretty lame, but the boys tried to animate them. Especially Tetsu, he was all over his side of the stage, jumping and shouting and trying to the crowd pumped up. It worked for some parts, but not all the time.
Yuuki seemed to have learned alot more english. He didn't ask for boobs anymore (like he did in Cologne and Utrecht) but kept shouting 'call us' or 'call me'. I had the impression that alot of fans didn't understand him or didn't know what to shout... he also did his usual 'show me your fucking fist' and he introduced Rai by shouting ' on guitar rai'. He didn't introduce anyone else, which I found a bit weird.
Rai seemed really shy and quiet by this point... he barley did anything and only seemed to light up, when he heard his name being called or noticed fans looking or waving at him. I also had the impression (but that's just me) that he was a bit afraid of Yuuki. I noticed him ducking away from him, when Yuuki approached him to talk to him.
Tetsu on the other hand, seemed very active and happy. He got a buttload of water in his face again from Yuuki (just like Jin and Rai, by the end of the concer they were dripping wet, thanks to Yuuki) and he let us touch him alot, although none of them did stagediving, except Yuuki.
When they came out from the Encore, they were on stage without Yuuki for a bit an just jammed, which was really fun to watch. They all seemed to have a blast and Shou was just grinning from one ear to the other, while Tetsu, Rai and Jin played their Instruments and ran over the stage. When Yuuki arrived, they played one more song and then started directly into 'Warai Oni'. The Encore was a bit short this time.
Tetsu and Jin had their plecks between their lips and came over to us to give us them (my friends got one from Tetsu and one from Jin, my other friend got a bottle from Yuuki). The guy behind me caught Shous Drumstick and even Rai came over to us and let himself be touched.
Other than that, I noticed that Tetsu had a UnsraW sticker on the back of his guitar. Yuuki is NOT as skinny as he used to be. When he stage dove he was VERY heavy. Shous Drumset seemed to fall apart, as he had a staff person at his side every two seconds, trying to repair the drums or put them back up. He also messed up at the beginning of one song, which was really funny since Yuuki wanted to start singing and then sort of stopped and looked at Shou a bit confused. He just grinned and they started over. After Yuuki was singing normally, he came over to Shou and the two just kinda smiled at each other. Yuuki also hurt himself once while Stage diving. When he came back, he fell and hit his head on the stage. Tetsu seemed really concernd, but everything was alright in the end. Tetsu and Yuuki also seemed really tight. Whenever Tetsu came to him, Yuuki would put an Arm around him and hold him really close (probably just fanservice, but it was cute).
It was a good tour final, but not a great one. The band was really good, but the crowd was just not enough and not enthusiatic enough.
The signing session was like all the others, except it was organized better than in Cologne. Yuuki also learned some german. Instead of saying 'thank you' he said 'dankeschön' (which means 'thank you'). The boys were really sweet and still looked stunning, although Tetsu and Yuuki acted a bit like playboys. We stayed until the very end, until they stood up and waved. We waved back and called 'goodbye', which Yuuki and Shou replied to.

I managed to get my Album (Spiral Circle), my photoset, my DVD and my poster signed on all three concerts. The guys took pictures with their phones and cameras on all three concerts, which was really cute. I would follow them again any time and I'm really glad I took the whole ordeal on me to see them. They were incredible and I fell in love with them even more after this whole thing. I really hope they come back soon and I hope that more people come the next time...
All in all:
12 February 2010 @ 09:07 pm
We arrived at the Club pretty late. Entry was at 7:30 pm and beginn at 8 pm, so we came around 2:30. There were only about twenty people there and we already feared that it would be totally empty... but by the time we could go in the club, there were around 200 people there. We managed to get a good spot in front of Yuuki in the third row and then the waiting began.
The Band started on time and as an Intro they used 'end of finale' and started directly into Reborn after that (exactly like in Utrecht). The Club was small and standing in front of Yuuki in the third row was pretty tight, but I could see them pretty good. Everyone wore their Reborn Outfits and Jin had his normal black suit on, Yuuki had less gunk in his face then in Utrecht. He just had some blood painted on and his teeth black. He also wore yellow contact lenses.
I'll write the rest of the report like I wrote the last one, because I can't remember EXACTLY what happend in chronological order. So I'll jus write what I remember.
Cologne had the best atmosphere, although Yuuki seemed a bit tired. He built his power up in the concert and didn't start right away with 100%. The rest of the band was really energetic and Jin acted almost as if he were part of the band.
When Yuuki started scratching his chest and arms, he had a bit of trouble pulling up his Jacket (xD). He also lost one button on his red shirt and seemed a bit sad, when he noticed that he couldn't close it anymore (the first three buttons had to stay open).
Shou is a sunnyboy. He was grinning and singing the entire time along and just behaved so incredibly cute.
As always, Yuuki spit water into the crowd as much as he could. But he also spit his snot/spit into the crowd, which was just plain gross. And I wasn't the only one who thought that, because when they came out for their Encore, Yuuki was spitting water and basically running from one side of the stage to the other, when Tetsu suddenly tapped his shoulder. When Yuuki turned around to him, Tetsu spit water right into his face, which was just plain hysterical. Yuukis Expression at that moment was all like: Wtf?! And Tetsu was laughing his ass off. The whole crowd cheered and applauded and Yuuki finally got a taste of his own medicine. Although I have to mention, that he took his revenge on Tetsu later on and kept spitting water into his face during 'Warai Oni'.
They almost all stage dove in Cologne. Yuuki, Tetsu and Jin did during Warai Oni, which was really cool, because they also all changed their instruments. At first they played the song normally, but then Yuuki went over to Tetsu and took his Guitar, so that Tetsu could stage dive, which he didn't want to do at first, but Yuuki basically forced him. After that Tetsu basically didn't do anything else... and after playing guitar for a while, Yuuki went to Shou and changed with him, so that Shou was forced to play guitar... and to be honest, he didn't look very happy or very talented with the guitar (xD). Yuuki looked like a little boy on the drums, grinning and banging away. Tetsu stage dove his little ass off, Shou tried to hide, Jin just laughed and teased the crowd and Rai kept playing normally.
Although I mentioned in my first report that Rai seemed happy, I've changed my mind. He seemed very shy and quiet as opposed to Tetsu and even Jin. Although he always seemd very happy when he was noticed or called.
They reaaaaly powered up during Warai Oni and seemed insanely happy and rilled up. Especially Tetsu, who didn't take his guitar up until the very end. I think the only reason they all took up their original positions, was because Shou seemed to want to go back to his Drums really badly.
I accidently groped Yuukis groin while he was stage diving...
Yuuki spit directly at people. He looked at them before spitting away, I'm sure of it.

The Signing Session was one f*cking mess. A guy in front of me wanted them to sign an Awoi Picture, until a friend of mine told him that wasn't UnsraW and he just ran away all pissy. Yuuki seemed a bit overwhelmed and also tried to tell the guy that wasn't UnsraW, but his english isn't all that good. Other than that, they signed all the stuff, said 'thank you' and smiled. They were still in their styling and we managed to get an autograph of Jin on a picture that we printed out. He was the support bassist of black:list and we still had some concert pictures of him. When he noticed them, he was really suprised, but happy and asked us if they were from black:list, to which we said yes.
We stayed until they left and called to them, that we would see them in hamburg, to which Shou waved to us.

Right. First Concert for me was also the first Europe Concert for the Band!
Utrecht, Netherlands.

I’ve been to the Hall a couple of times, so I knew what to expect. It’s rather big and the Stage is very wide, which is perfect because the crowd spreads out a bit and you can stand in the front rows rather easily. And of course, having read most live reports, I really wanted to stand in front of Yuuki and experience firsthand what the Band was like.
We arrived at the venue around 1:30 in the afternoon and about 10 Minutes after the Band had arrived, which was a tad bit annoying, as we couldn’t see them go into the hall off mode and maybe talk to them.
At least, that’s what we thought.
We stood in front of the Hall for about five seconds, when my sister suddenly went all rigid and pointed out to me that about five meters away, Yuuki had just come out and was photographing the Tivoli sign outside the venue. We just kind of stared, until he turned to us and then we all waved at once. Yuuki just grinned and raised both arms, before he waved back and went inside the Hall again.
It was a very short and very fangirly moment …
After that, nothing interesting happened. We waited until the doors opened at about 18:30 and managed to get places in the first and second row right in front of Yuuki and a bit over to Rais Side. Since we knew there was going to be a Signing Session after the concert, we decided to get merchandise later, after the concert.
The Concert began around 19:30 and they used the Intro ‘End of Final’. First Shou came out, then Rai, then Jin, then Tetsu and last but not least, Yuuki. They we’re all in their Reborn Outfits, except for Jin who basically just wore a black Suit and had a few red streaks in his hair. I was totally amazed, because they all looked so good and just had this amazing energy around them.

The first Song they played was ‘Reborn’ and I was surprised that Yuuki sounded so good live. He powered up right from the start and really got the crowd pumped, even though a large part of the audience didn’t seem to know UnsraW that well.
The Problem with the live Report at this point is, that I don’t remember EXACTLY what they did at each song, so I’ll just kind of summarize.

Yuuki was spitting water right from the beginning and jumped into the crowd at least 6-8 times. I had the man’s ass, legs and arms all over me when he was trying to get back on the stage. At one point, the crowd couldn’t hold him and he landed on the floor. When he tried to get back to the stage, they actually held onto him, so that Jin and one guy from the Staff had to come and pull him back out. That didn’t really bother him all that much and a couple of songs later he was stage diving again.

Rai and Shou seemed insanely happy during the whole concert. They were both smiling and laughing and talking with the other Members all the time. Shou even did some stage diving right before the encore. Rai seemed especially happy when he was communicating with the fans. The couple of times Tetsu came over, he was watching him the entire time and smiling.

Yuukis MCs were… funny. He basically said three things in English:
“ Show me your boobs.”
“ You are my first.”
“ Show me your fucking face.”
And he said that over and over again… it was very entertaining.

Jin did some stage diving too. Yuuki kicked away the boxes that were separating us from the stage at one point and basically just pulled Jin over and seemed to command him into stage diving, which he did. The man is so light and slim, that he had no chance to get back on the stage, until Yuuki pulled him back. Jin then just kind was kind of lying on the stage next to Yuuki and let the fans touch him. Yuuki himself seemed very amused by all this and just kind of watched him. He even sat down at one point and looked at the audience, while Tetsu, Rai and Jin were all over the stage. This all happened during ‘Warai Oni’.

They played three rather slow songs.
Sakura no Namida
Gate of Death
~tsuioku no kanata~
During all three Yuuki was extremely emotional and seemed to solely concentrate on singing. I thought his voice was extremely beautiful and very… powerful. He’s a really good front man who can convey his emotions to the audience almost one to one.

Other than that, Tetsu didn’t want to be touched all that much, Yuuki didn’t like getting groped in his crotch, Shou sang along to almost every song, Yuukis pants sort of… ripped a bit between his legs and they basically threw everything they had into the audience at the end.

All in all, the concert was very good and just exceeded my expectations in almost all points. And it wasn’t really over, since there was still the signing session, which started about half an hour after the concert. I managed to get some Merchandise beforehand (a T-shirt, a Poster and two Checkies), so I could get right into the Line and wait for my turn.

The order in which they sat was Yuuki, Shou, Rai, Tetsu and then Jin. They were all still in their stage outfits, but looked pretty okay. When it was my turn, I stood in front of Yuuki and gave him my poster. When he signed it, I said ‘arigatou’ which seemed to amuse him to no end, since he said ‘thank you’ to me… but that wasn’t all that amused him.
I wasn’t wearing my UnsraW Shirt at that time, but still my Ayabie Shirt (which wasn’t a coincident xD) and he seemed to recognize it, since he pointed to me and grinned, before leaning to Shou and saying something to him, at which point he also looked at me and smiled. Then Yuuki said ‘ayabie!’ to me… I was a bit perplex and just smiled back and nodded. After that I got my poster signed by all five Members (including Jin, because it didn’t seem right to ignore him and he had really grown on me during the concert) and just basically went behind the barrier and watched them a while.
A good friend of mine was standing there with me and she called Tetsus Name at one point, to which he looked up and grinned, before showing us the devil horns and acting really cool… which was ruined a bit when Shou hit him and forced him to keep signing (I laughed really hard at this xD).
The signing session passed without any incident after this and when the guys were leaving, we waved at them and called, that we would see them Monday. Tetsu did the Nyappy Sign at this and kissed it (he’s a real bad boy…), Shou smiled at us and Yuuki blew us a kiss (but only after my friend had done the same). Then they disappeared and we packed our stuff and left.

We waited at their bus for a while after that and when Yuuki came out, he waved at us again and called ‘bye bye’. Jin also waved at us, but the rest just passed.

That was basically it. We behaved like mad fan girls (although we never touched them or came to close) and the band seemed to enjoy it (especially Tetsu and Yuuki).

The rest of the reports will follow up... and I will make some pictures (promise!). Until then, you can just look at Yuukis Livedoor (the man manage to take some more pictures of himself than I did xD).

Below is the picture Yuuki took of the Tivoli sign, while we were standing next to him and staring at him like a group of idiots...

Edit: Excuse my english (I'm german) and if anyone reads this and remebers more or experienced something diffrently, feel free to write me!

EDIT EDIT: I forgot to mention that the dutch fans gave UnsraW one piece of underwear as a sort of 'present' and that Yuuki pulled it over his head during the concert... and then masturbated with his mike... it was strange.
