Released last month on the 22nd it’s Ohara ♥ Sakurako’s very first live concert release!~! Available on both gorgeous Blu-ray and DVD the performance featured is her very last of her spring 2015 tour held at TSUTAYA O-EAST on May 7, 2015.
The concert includes fourteen song performances and both versions include a mini making of clip as well as a full color photo booklet. A little note of interest about the two versions is that the Blu-ray edition costs only 200 yen more or approximately $1.80 U.S. which makes it kinda of a no-brainer to opt for the Blu-ray…and I must say! the clarity of the video is very very much immaculate as you know all Blu-ray’s aren’t created equally!
You’ll pretty much hear/see all of Sakurako~chan’s well known hits throughout the concert as her setlist is pretty much as close to perfect~* as one could wish for early in her young career and while we’re very aware of her musicianship~prowess on the guitar, a most awesome surprise appears during her encore where the staff rolls out a red keyboard for Sakurako~chan to perform with! And while co-written lyrics are first online, one could readily imagine that it won’t be very long at all before Sakurako~chan begins penning entire songs and lyrics as with natural~musicianship inevitably comes self inspired melodies and meaning~.
And talk about stage presence!! Whether Sakurako~chan’s rockin’ one of her acoustic/electric guitars, a tambourine or just the mic it’s inconsequential as her already trademark energy remains electric and you’re most likely already most familiar with those oh~so~adorable YELPS~♥ she regularly verbalizes with pure unguarded joy ^^!! So let’s get rockin’ as Sakurako~chan & band bring us her special and unique brand of happiness ‘n’ music!
Here I’ve chosen six favorite performances to entertain and entice including her opening aggressive pop/rock number in “Over The Rainbow”, an inspirational and equally irresistible~* J~Poppy melody in “Muteki no Girlfriend”, an all time gorgeous ballad in “Hitomi”, her beautifully melodic mid tempo~ballad in “Tada kini no koto ga suki desu”, the euphoric fix your day/week “Happy Days” and last but certainly not least the first encore song “Chipokke na ai no uta” which features as aforementioned Sakurako~chan♥ on the keyboards up front and center ^^! The concert then finishes with appropriately “Sankyu” however I do need to leave more than a few future entices for you to look forward to when you do order this concert too right! =)
