Smiles For All: Akamaru Dash☆ Return to Shibuya WWW for 1st One-Man Live!
On March 20, 2016, Akamaru Dash☆ returned to Shibuya WWW, the same venue where they had filmed their first MV and commercial for Maruchan instant noodles back in 2013 but, this time it was for their long-awaited first one-man live.
After a short opening video showing their accomplishments on the way to the live, the performance started with “Hippare☆Udon Soba”, Marika Kitazawa and Ayaka Kawamura shouting for the fans to get heated up. The “udon soba” chants sped up during “5 Minute Ruler” and “Uwasa no Japanese Boy “ as Akamaru Dash☆ kicked up their feet like a chorus line and shuffled about on the stage with their hands extended like Kabuki actors.
Introducing themselves, Marika imagined that the different tiers of the venue were like the levels of an arena, calling for each one to raise their voices when called. Continuing on with their major debut song “Tabete, Waratte, Ikiteiku.”, the members moved delicately across the stage, their movements in sync and their voices joining together. As the heat went back up to a boil with “Wonderful☆Smile”, the fans called out loudly and sang along before being stopped in their tracks by Marika’s “Suki dayo!” Bouncing around on the stage during the up tempo “Chronos”, Akamaru Dash☆ got hands waving side to side and aimed for hearts with their finger guns.
Mari Tamashiro and Ayaka kept things simmering with their cute duet “Koi Suru Torazu” before switching places with Nayu Onishi and Marika who turned the clock back to the late 1990’s with “Wonderland”. Another video followed showing audition footage of the 4 members, Nayu dancing to Girls’ Generation, Ayaka performing “Everyday Kachusha”, Mari demonstrating her karate skills, and Marika singing “Hashire!”.
