Postscrpit to Send-Off Party
Despite the very short notice and the heavy rain, a lot of people came to the party.
Sent off by them, I feel very happy and confident. Thank you♪♪♪
Now I will start a roll-playing video game in a live-action version.
Do uou know what I mean?
In a roll-playing video game, a hero or heroine set off to the wide world to look for a company one by one to save the world, right?
Something like that.
In my case, I will leave Japan and look for a member one by one to form a band.
(The final boss would be …. what? …. a world tour?? maybe?? haha.)
Here are some pics from the party.
The entrance hall.
I should sing, right?
Unfortunately, we didn't have time to prepare the band
as the party plan was first come about only a few weeks ago,
so I sang with karaoke (sorry).
I still sang with all my heart, of course.
The song was "How Many Tears (Helloween)" by the way.
Following that, an MC, Yuki Yasuda, appeared on stage.
Following our talk, we introduced the support messages sent from afar.
All messages were great, but this blog introduces only who gave me the messages.
As for the content of the messages themselves, I will introduce on some other occasion.
The first two are the musicians who had given me a message upon my crowdfunding campaign in spring.
1. Michael Ehre: Drummer of Gamma Ray, Unity, Metalium etc.
2. Alessandro Del Vesshio, who beautifully produced my vocals on SA-KU-RA .
3. Mark Cross: Drummer of Tower of Babel, God's Army among many great bands.
4. Mark "Gus" Scott: Drummer of Trixter. He's also working for a great cause. Please check his website.
5. Johan Nunez: Drummer of Firewind. I was happy to hear that he used to listen to my album and other stuff.

"The world has been waiting for her come back!",
"Saeko, you'll rule!", and " I look forward to your journey in conquering this Earth!" etc.
I was surely happy, but also felt like, "OMG! They believe in me so much that I really have to make it!"
Oh, some of you might be thinking now …
"They are all drummers! (except Alessandro)".
Yes, I know.
So, here are the messages from non-drummers.
6. Helcanen Val: Designer and Promoter of Metal Female Voices Fest.
7. Anza: Singer of Head Phones President.
Actually, it was Anza who persuaded me that I should try again.
Maybe one day, I'll write about our episode (how we met and how she encouraged me).
From Osaka, Yoshihiro Nitta (guitarist of Black Masquerade) came to the party, representing "Screaming Sprit FEST ASIA".
Following that, Hiroaki Yumoto, representing Elan Uni Verse, made a speech.
And a photo session!
At the end, the party finished with my song, SA-KU-RA.
I was deeply moved.
I appreciate all who came to the party to show their support.
"Equipped herself, the heroine SAEKO will leave by airship (if it was a roll-playing game)."
haha (^ ^)
My first destination will be Germany, the place where I located myself until 2006.
My German is poor, but I can still understand easy everyday conversation.
I also have some friends there.
So, I'm gonna meet and talk with them and get some info first.
With the info as a clue, I will probably move to the next destination.
Again, like the video game where hero or heroine first chat with villagers.
Please watch over my journey.
