Team Syachihoko’s Triumphant Return to Tokyo Idol Festival 2016!
Team Syachihoko came back to Tokyo Idol Festival after a 4 year absence with a pair of explosive performances on August 6, 2016!
August 6, 2016 – Hot Stage – 12:50pm – 1:20pm
Zepp Diver City was packed full, the floor area glowing with penlights as the members took the stage. Leader Honoka Akimoto appeared first, shouting, “Set!”, as she and the others crouched down with their heads tucked behind their crossed arms, leading the militaristic chant to begin “Otome Juken Senso”, the Syachinofu (fans) following them with chants of their own. A rainbow sea of lights waved as Team Syachihoko fanned the flames with their motivating song about the trials of entrance exams. The musical pep talk continued as Team Syachihoko threw strikes down the alleys with “The Stardust Bowling”, the audience bouncing along with them like ricocheting bowling pins. Midway through the song, Honoka shouted, “Because we’ll be the ones that stand out the most at TIF!”, firing up the crowd even more.
Team Syachihoko stopped to greet the audience and introduce themselves, Nao Sakura making sure to wave to those in the back of Zepp Diver City, noting that because it was Tokyo Idol Festival, she saw some faces that she hadn’t seen in a while. Akimoto declared, “the next song is really cute” as Team Syachihoko attempted to cool things off with “Chérie!”. Nao continued by commenting that because it had been 4 years, they were really excited, adding that if the audience wasn’t enjoying themselves but that Team Syachihoko would make sure that such a thing would not happen.
Box-stepping and thrashing through “Dakishimete Anthem”, Team Syachihoko incited the fervor of the Syachinofu, Yuzuki Oguro and Haruna Sakimoto shouting out to them to give them all their power. Banging their heads furiously, Team Syachihoko began the final countdown to the end of their triumphant return to Tokyo Idol Festival with their latest single “ULTRA Cho MIRACLE SUPER VERY POWER BALL”. Haruna turned a cartwheel as Honoka and Nao leapfrogged over Chiyuri Ito and Yuzuki. Uncapping their water bottles, Nao and Yuzuki splashed the fans at the front of the stage. Glistening with sweat, they reminded the audience that they would be at the Greeting Area as well as Smile Garden before the day was over.
