Pheeeew. Suu~. Pheeew.
Uh„, awah„ uwaaaaaa!!!
"Ah, excuse me, I’d like to go to the bathroom… Please excuse me…
Speaking of the difficulty of
going to the bathroom when you’re sitting at the window seat in the airplane…!! It’s Tomoya.
Everyone it’s been a while, hasn’t it.
It’s been too cold recently. It’s time for me to get my fluffy socks and stomach band out.
It’s started! Asia tour!
We went to Hong Kong and Korea!
It was so fun!!
Thank you so much!
Especially since it was our first time to have a live in Hong Kong, I was really looking forward to what kind of live it would turn out to be.
Everyone in the venue was so welcoming and it was totally fun.
To everyone that came, thank you so much!
But Hong Kong was so hot, and Korea was so cold… The difference in temperatures was kind of amazing. lol
So, we’ve come to Thailand.
Today is our 9th day on this trip.
Thailand is a country that I’ve always wanted to visit.
I’m excited. Huhuhu.
I love cilantro.
I think that I’ll go eat a giant amount of it.
It’s the last spurt for the Asia Tour.
We’ll put all of our spirit into it so wait for us!
See you, see you.
blahblahblahd said: So I heard Toru and Ryota use to be in a dance group called Heads? What happen to their dance career and what break their dance group up and make them join One Ok Rock?
Hi! That’s correct!
Toru and Ryota were in HEADS with Kohei and Takuya. The group was also under AMUSE, just like ONE OK ROCK is now. They were also active before their debut and participated in some dance competitions around the years of 1995~1999.
They debuted with a single in 2000 and continued their activities until the very end of 2002. For the whole year of 2003, they took a break to improve their abilities. At this point, HEADS as a 4 member group pretty much ended. They merged into a new group with like 7 other members and were called GROUND 0. In 2004, Toru and Ryota continued their activities as GROUND 0. 2005 was really quiet, but they both started appearing in dramas that year. HEADS also broke up in mid-2005.
I don’t ever remember (or even find) a specific reason for their break up. However, I think the reason could be that they just weren’t popular enough as a group. AMUSE wasn’t such a giant company back then, and there were boy groups from other big companies (like Avex, but mainly Johnny’s) that had a lot much more publicity and popularity.
I believe that they started acting and the band because of the failure/end of GROUND 0, as well as a shift in their personal interests.
ONE OK ROCK was formed around the time HEADS broke up. Toru, Ryota and Alex met since they were in the same high school. Toru once said that after meeting their old drummer (Koyanagi Yu), they decided to start the band purely for fun. Taka and Tomoya joined afterwards.
Sorry for making this for long, but I hope that I was able to answer your question! I also apologize for not being able to confirm a few things as there is a lack of official information on those subjects.

When I became aware that I forgot my beloved mangas in the airplane, I felt my mood go down. Sigh, guess I’ll buy them once again…. Huh? You want to know about my recent manga situation? Well, let’s see. Recently I bought… things like “GIANT KILLING”, “Vagabond”, “Space Brothers”. “GIANT KILLING” is interesting all throughout. I believe that I haven’t really read many sports manga until now. Before I realized it, I was already at volume 29 but I’m reading it without getting bored of it at all. The fact that all of the characters are drawn real properly is great. I guess for “Vagabond” it looks like they’ll finish their field work soon? But, Inoue’s drawings are really a work of art. Even the drawings of plowing are crazy pretty. “Space Brothers” was so-so. Ah, also “Kaiji”. Finally, the “One Poker” volume has started. I’m extremely looking forward to what kind of end is waiting for us. But, however, however, it seems that, first they’ll explain the strategy for a sure victory, then it’ll expand from there. It’s interesting. If you think about that kind of thing while reading, you can say that we might even enjoy it even more than the other games that happened in the series until now. Also… “Shinjuku Swan”. The story went from being about scouts in Kabukicho to something huge on a great scale but, at last, the next volume is the last. It gets you excited. Ah! That was good too, “Welcome to the Ballroom”. It’s a story that has social dancing as its theme but, the drawings during the dancing scenes have such a sense of liveliness, it feels like they’re always coming out to life within the pages. And, to say the least… The girls that appear in it are cute. Ah, speaking of cute… Sorry I’ve spoken too much, the continuation will be for next time. It’s Tomoya.
Everyone, it’s been a while!
It’s gotten cold lately.
This year, I plan to put on my long pants properly.
Well now, our ~10 day Europe tour has ended safely as well!!
Everything was a first time for us and, anyway, it was a continuation of such impact and great emotions.
Everything was different in each country… to the point that you can’t put them into the same one category of “Europe”, they all had certain foods and streets, and even certain moods during the lives.
But, everyone welcomed us so warmly, I was so glad.
I was so happy to be able to see the faces of everyone having fun during the lives in various places.
We’ll definitely go back to have another live, so wait for us.
To everyone that came, thank you so much!
Lots of photos! Boom!
When I look back on everything again, I get his crazy feeling of violent energy. lol
Basically, it went like Live→Straight to the shower→Travel by bus→Live…, but in the limited spare time it was sight seeing & food.
Hmm. The sceneries and buildings were beautiful.
I totally understood the feeling foreign people get when they come to Kyoto. lol
Anyway, it was an extremely fun tour! Thank you so much!
Well then, yesterday we came to Hong Kong.
We have the Asia tour left.
We’ll put in all of our spirit so wait for us!!
See you, see you!

Hello! Tomoya was not in college at the time. He was reminiscing. He was comparing the situation of doing your homework at the last minute with the situation of recording new songs. I hope that I was able to clear that up for you!
