Involuntary stalker

Today I went to Tokyo for an afternoon seminar, which was OK, but imho a professor that famous could prepare and time his lecture better. Unexpectedly the way back turned out to be pretty entertaining in a j-rock sense.
I got on the shinkansen train at Tokyo station and at the next stop, Shinagawa, three guys got on the train and sat in front of me. My "bandoman radar" (any bangya has it, of course) was beeping, siren-ing and making a lot of noise in general that it was a rock band in front of me and moreover a quite successful one judging by their clothes. Actually it was two band guys with their manager/handler/babysitter or whatever his job is called. I think other band members must have been in the next train car, they obviously bought tickets at the last moment since they were sitting apart on the middle seats. Anyway the moment the blond guy turned to me I recognized him as Yasu from Acid Black Cherry, though I had troubles remembering his name and he is the only one from  the band whose face I somewhat know. I think the other guy was their bassist whatever his name is. Looking at their schedule now I realize that they must have been going to Kobe to play at Vamps Halloween party.
During the train ride their manager worked (I saw him checking photos that must have been for some magazine or something), Yasu slept and the other guy drunk beer and twitted on his iPad. It fit so well with my views of j-rockers! What amused me the most was how Yasu tried to keep his sunglasses on top of his head and at the same time sleep comfortably in his chair. Eventually he gave up and took them off, but he did try for quite a while! Oh, j-rockers and their vanity xD
We live in a small world and yet not small enough. That or life is just not fair. Why couldn't I have Hizumi sitting on a train next to me?! Let him try and run from me on the shinkansen train! We could play tag all the way to Nagoya you know! Dreams, dreams ヽ(`Д´)ノ
Anyway Acid Black Cherry entertained me to a certain extent on 1 hour 45 min ride from Tokyo to Nagoya ;)

lol, no, they're stalking you! ;P
I find it weird that they'd take a train, since on tour their equipment would be transported in vans/trucks anyway... but oh well, I know how you feel .. missing all these stalking opportunities *hug*

I honestly doubt that lol
Maybe something happened with their van, they obviously bought tickets at the last moment, like 5 min before the departure. But maybe they just sent the equipment with the tracks and took a train, it's much faster and a lot more comfortable than a car. On the other hand some bags I saw their manager holding looked like they had drumsticks inside so who knows.
*sigh* Yeah, why do I run into a band I care not fore instead of someone I'd love to stalk? Life is so not fair...

Who knows maybe one day you'll run into some j-rocker on a street too. After all these years of living in Japan this is the first time something like that happened to me ;D
They put all of us girls to shame lol

OMG!! Чо их в Синкансен то занесло?! О_о Причём, только троих?! О_о
Блин, конечно Ясу - это не участники группы_которую_нельзя_называть, но я б там тоже скончался, наблюдать ТАКОЕ ещё и СПЯЩЕЕ почти два часа перед собой... (=___=)
Крута крута!!! *_*

Черт его знает, я честно говоря тоже не понимаю почему они на поезде поехали, причем явно купили билеты в последний момент, но может у них расписание было такое жесткое что они иначе не успевали. Я думаю остальные учестники группы сидели в соседнем вагоне, т.к. их менеджер в какой-то момент изчес в том направлении.
Ты преувеличиваешь каваиность (ну или что там еще) спящего мужика будь он хоть 10 раз ж-рокер >;D В конце концов Ясу спал, я читала книжку и мы друг другу не мешали ;P

Нуу, я не про кавайность, а вообще... Находиться несколько часов в одном вагоне с известным человеком, да ещё и таким, как Ясу... Это очень круто, я считаю)) *_*

I'm sooo super envious!! that you could just see them in daily live. sounds really like a dream.
i'm not even able to live in japan yet, and the only chance to meet any of my favourite bands/ members is when they do a live here.
instorevents are not even existing.
and i really like ABC!!

anyway, sorry for my random comment here. just had to say this.
thanks

ahaha I can't say I care for Yasu, but it's still funny how lately I keep randomly running into j-rockers. It's not something that happens often though.
