Recording 24 thousand audiences within 3 days from April 6 to 8, Keyakizaka 46 held their “2nd YEAR ANNIVERSARY LIVE” at the main arena of Musashino Forest Sport Plaza in Musashino, Tokyo.

The 2nd anniversary live consisted of 19 members, unfortunately missing Yurina Hirate and Manaka Shida from illness. As the audience came together through singing the large chorus line of “Overture”, the 19 members appeared on stage.

The live started with the new song “Glass Wo Ware”  (Break the Glass), that has just been on sale on April 4. In the middle of the chorus, pillars of fire shot up and the whole venue was into the energetic dance and powerful lyrics that created the Keyakizaka world.
The live continued with “Hiraishin” that had stage lightings reminiscent of thunder, followed by “Kimi Wo Mou Hanasanai”, ” and “Mou Morie Kaerouka?”.

After the MC, the live shifted to a segment performing unit and solo songs.
First came “Ballet and Shonen” by Rina Murakami, Rika Ozeki, Minami Koike, Nanaka Nagasawa, Aoi Harada, and Nanao Komeyama. Then, they performed “Namiuchigiwa Wo Hashiranaika?” by Yuka Sugai, Akane Moriya,  Rika Watanabe, and Risa Watanabe.

As the introduction of “Saisei Suru Saibou” begins,  Yui Imaizumi suddenly appears on the center stage, and the venue was filled with blue lights as she majesitically sang her solo song.

The concert hall turned into a cheerful atmosphere when Neru Nagahama’s sang her solo “100nen Mateba”, with tons of rainbow and unicorn balloons surrounding her near the center stage.  The venue was filled with cheers when two bunny characters ran up to Neru.

Soon, Minami and Rika appeared and the three girls performed “Bathroom Travel”.

As the live entered to the second half, Yui Imaizumi and Yui Kobayashi, called the “Yui-chans”, sang “Ichigyou Dake no Air Mail” and “Zenmai Shikakeno Yume”, followed after the songs of 19 members “Getsuyoubino Asa, Skirt Kirareta” and “Eccentric”. Opposing to charming unit and solo numbers, performance with full members were very fierce and the beautiful formation dance fascinated the audience.

In the MC, captain Yuka commented, “Keyakizaka 46 is a blessed group. Though we had frustrated moments, every one of you gave us courage and confidence.  Thank you very much. Although Yurina and Aika are absent today, I want to make Keyakizaka 46 a place where everyone feels home when they come see us.  Never losing the spirit that we started with, we will keep moving forward. Now that we came to our 3rd year, please believe in us. We hope to receive your continuous support!”.

Keyakizaka46 left the stage after singing their 3rd encore song “Taiyouwa Miageruhito Wo Erabanai”, but appeared once again answering to the endless encore. The live finally ended with the double encore song “Glass Wo Ware!”.

It has only been 2 years since their debut, but the impressive performance in which the members put their heart and soul into have certainly proved their abilities that they cultivated within the short period of time.
