Yesterday was the second day of Athletic Harmonies! It was the Climax Stage this time Ｏ(≧▽≦)Ｏ
To those who came, did you all have fun?
Since it was our first ever 2-day event, I did have my worries over my physical condition and my throat as well as whether I could keep myself motivated over the 2 days but looking back now that it’s over, what I can say is that “it was fun”.
Still, this live offered me plenty of things to reflect upon and lessons to be learnt.
It seems obvious, but as I’m given opportunities to perform live I always hold the attitude that “it doesn’t matter that I’m not great (at performing); there’s so many people supporting me that I must sing for them, with gratitude” or “I’ll just perform to the best of my current ability!”. With the event this time being held over 2 days, I think it showed me just how numerous the tasks I’ll have to take on ahead of the next live are – much more so than any other live I’ve done before.
Still, I was able to face this live event 100% head on so I have no regrets☆
After all, ‘reflections’ and ‘regrets’ are not the same☆
What’s most important is that it was fun (*^^*)
Things that were only possible to see over a 2-day event; the support from Mina-chan, Ayahi-chan and Aki-chan – these were the things that made this live so wonderful.
Though I had many doubts and worries going into the live, seeing all of you have fun made me feel very happy indeed☆
For the live to turn out to be such a good stage is down to the power you showed (*^^*)♪
And for the 3-year old Sphere, a Sphere that is still just 3 years young – for us to hold a 2-day event at a stage as wonderful as the Yoyogi National First Gymnasium is something I would never even have thought about when we were formed!
But it did happen for real.
This is something I think about all the time but as Sphere’s ‘circle’ widens, it makes me really happy to see so many people come to love the unit named Sphere!
And yes, there were so many announcements made ahead of our next round of activities♪
First of all was the news that Sphere will be singing the opening theme for this autumn’s Shinryaku! Ika-musume anime.
It’s called HIGH POWERED and it’ll go on sale on the 26th of October!
We’ve already debuted the song live☆
Since it will be theme song for such a popular anime, I put my all into singing HIGH POWERED hoping that it will be a song that people will love too☆
And in 2012, the original anime Natsuiro Kiseki which stars all members of Sphere will begin its broadcast!
Normally, the members of Sphere are involved in various (anime) productions on an individual level, but for us to be able to be ‘connected’ to a project in this manner is down to the fact that we’ve been ‘connected’ with so many (other) productions as well as so many people.
For that, I am truly thankful.
On a personal level, my photobook Rainbow Vacation will be released on the 20th of October!
Following on from the photobooks released when I was 19 and 20 years old, this one comes now that I’m 21 so please look forward to seeing a slightly more mature Tomatsu (Haruka) (*^^*)
Adding on to that, it has been confirmed that my recent (solo live tour) Orange☆Road will be getting BD & DVD releases!
It will be released on 22nd February 2012 – Tomatsu Haruka’s 22nd birthday; a date with 6 number 2s in a row!
Look forward to it!
To those who stopped by at Athletic Harmonies, thank you so much!
Treasuring the bonds I formed with you, I will continue to move forward with diligence from now on so I would appreciate your support!
