The event has started with talk session. They talked about the background of forming xxx of WONDER, episodes of producing 5 songs in the album, their usual lifestyles, and also showed each nicknames called by other members. In the middle of the talk session, Norihisa Nakama, a MV director of their main song “Meisekimu Madonna”(Lucid dream Madonna), appealed. He talked about his original technique used in the MV (that is probably world-first), and episode on filming.
イベントは、まずトークセッションからスタート。xxx of WONDER結成の背景や、ミニアルバムに収録されている5曲の制作エピソード、また普段のメンバーの様子やお互いの呼び名を披露し合うなど、終始なごやかな雰囲気だった。途中からは、リード曲「明晰夢マドンナ」のMV監督、名嘉真法久が登場。撮影時の様子や、MV制作に使われている、おそらく世界で初だというテクニックなどについて語った。

After the talk session, finally the concert has started. They performed 4 songs from the album “Meisekimu Madonna”(Lucid dream Madonna), “Jelly Jelly” “Doukashiteru!” “Humming ga kikoeru”. Each song is cute but mysterious at the same time, that is what “xxx of WONDER” is like, and 4 songs has all different taste so that made the audience enjoy a lot. In addition, when Meru Kisida performed Wota-gei so hard during “Doukashiteru” was playing, the audience has burst into laughter.
トーク後のライブでは、『WONDER of WONDER』に収録されている「明晰夢マドンナ」「ジェリー・ジェリー」「ドウカシテル!」「ハミングがきこえる」の4曲を披露。どの曲もキュートでありながらもどこか妖しい、そんな「xxx of WONDER」的な雰囲気を持ちながらも、それぞれ異なるテイストで変化に富み、観客を楽しませていた。また「ドウカシテル」の演奏中には岸田メルが激しいオタ芸を繰り広げ、会場は笑いに包まれた。
