Gori and the Hamburgers, plus ‘Fabio’?

Gori rarely ever updates his blog so when he does post something, a Back-on fan must always take a look! :) This applies also to other members of Back-on that maintain a public blog, such as Teeda and Kenji03!

It’s already been mentioned before that Back-on were particularly keen on hamburgers and Gori in particular seems to adore them! He writes:

I recall that on day one, I ate a hamburger the size of my hand in a bar!

On day two, for lunch, I ate a hamburger from the hotel.

On day three, I ate a hamburger from a takeout(?)/or outside.

On day four…

Gori stops at this point… where he says the memory of eating burgers everyday keeps popping up! :D

Gori's Anime Matsuri Picture


He obviously enjoyed being in America, and has posted a group picture which you can see above! Like Teeda and Kenji03, Gori thanks the people in America for being so good to them. He is also very much looking forward to Canada, so to all the Canadians – please do make an effort to support them at Anime Evolution if you’re around the area!

On another note, active forum users will most likely already know this video, but during Anime Matsuri 2007, one very lucky person by the name of Fabio was ‘serenaded’ by Back-on! The video has been uploaded by buehrer on Youtube, and Fabio has kindly allowed us to post it here:

We get to see Kenji03 strumming on his guitar singing Fabio, fabio, fabio… with the rest of Back-on joining in at the end of each sentence with Fabio! At the end, Gori says the sweetest thing.. I love you!

Anime Matsuri 2007 – Live in Texas – Back-on blog summary

Back-on updated their official blog – Back-on Reportwith the picture below saying how much they enjoyed being in Texas (at Anime Matsuri, Houston) It all started with Chain receiving exposure through Air Gear, and then a letter arriving to invite them to Texas. It’s a lovely picture taken with the crowd and you can click on the picture itself to get the original size.

Back-on Concert

Teeda also posted in his blog (in fact, he was the most active in updating on a daily basis :D) where I think he said he was surprised at receiving such a warm welcome in America (which he now really likes!) Teeda noted the fact that alot of cute girls (author’s note: including Ichi, Ookami and Miyu-chan) asked him for an autograph/hugs? ^^ (author’s further note: you lucky lucky people! I so wish I was there!)

Subway logo

On the last day, the Back-on group went for dinner late at night, only to find that the restaurants weren’t open on a Sunday! Ultimately they ended up in Subway (those lucky Subway people!) and all ate a massive American-sized sandwich. The funny thing was that Gori (and someone else?) then said that he still wasn’t full, leaving Teeda and Kenji03 speechless!

Hopefully Back-on will update their blogs with even more info at a later date! They will actually be showing a video at their next show in Shibuya on May 10th 2007, with footage from the entire weekend. Fingers-crossed that they’ll post it online as well!

About this entry

One more day till Anime Matsuri…

There’s only ONE MORE DAY till the start of Anime Matsuri! Despite The convention being only in its first year (a fact I only just found out, thanks to Sound EX) I think its safe to say that the organisers have been quite extraordinary, seeing as they were able to invite BACK-ON (only our favourite band :)) and a host of other guests and arrange so many events!

You can find out more about Back-on‘s schedule at Anime Matsuri from this post, and a variety of sources have confirmed that they will be definitely attending Dance till Dawn so hope lots of people will be there to support them as well. Remember this is Back-on‘s first international performance, so extra enthusiasm is a must! If that’s not quite enough incentive, I can certainly try and telepathically send my waves of enthusiasm across the pond from England!

For those who are able to attend the event – congratulations! Back-on fans (including myself) unable to attend would really appreciate it if those who are there could share their stories with us! Multimedia, such as pictures and videos would definitely be an added bonus :) Please feel free to post on the forums, or even contact me directly, as we would all love to hear more!
In other related news, [MC] mentioned on the Anime Matsuri Forums that:

a little birdie told me that they’re filming their next music video here in H*TOWN!!!!

This is exciting news and could explain the 10 day mini-gap between Back-on‘s stay in America and their next Tokyo gig (aside from the time-off; adjusting to time difference; and editing of the trip-to-America video to be presented by Icchan at the gig) If you’re living in Houston, perhaps this is a good opportunity to do a bit of Back-on spotting!

And finally, regarding site updates… we will (finally) be updating the Music page sometime within the week to feature Baby Rock, as well as typing up lyrics such as Gaku-Ten! We are also working on the translation of Back-on’s KERA interview, so watch this space. ^^

Teeda's new hairdo!

p/s: I leave you with another picture of Teeda and his new hair style, taken with his cousin at the latter’s birthday, straight from his very own blog.

Back-on to make a special appearance at Anime Matsuri’s Dance till Dawn

Since this is Back-on‘s first appearance abroad, I’m making a special effort to keep up-to-date with any news updates from Anime Matsuri. This was actually posted on March 1st 2007, but aside from headlining the main concert, Back-on will make a special appearance at this overnight event with another band called Fizz!

You can find out more about the actual dance event by clicking here, but essentially what this means is that those attending can see Back-on for two days running! Why? The dance event is on Day I (Friday), and the main concert is on Day II (Saturday).  Lucky lucky people!

About this entry

Back-on is going to America – April 2007!

The latest announcement from their official website Back-on.com : Back-on is going to America! :) They will feature as one of the main live acts of Anime Matsuri, an anime convention being held between April 27th-29th 2007, at the George R. Brown Convention Center and the Hilton Americas Hotel in Houston, Texas.

Back-on‘s live performance will feature on April 28th 2007, which is a Saturday, so ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for anyone in Texas to miss out on Back-on’s FIRST EVER debut outside of Japan.

The extra bonus, of course, is that Back-on have said (if I have interpreted it correctly) that they plan to have autograph session(s) as well as hold interviews with the local media – local being, presumably, America.

Anime Matsuri‘s website introduces Back-on under their ‘Guest’ section:

After the huge success of their theme song “Chain” for the popular anime Air Gear, Back-On is performing for the first time in the United States at Anime Matsuri. The busy band is working on numerous projects and are excited to bring their music and electrifying live performance to Anime Matsuri’s Main Event. Please check out thier website at www.back-on.com for more info on this fantastic band!

Now I really wish I lived in America! Back-on have said that they will visit the UK at some point (check out the Q&A section on their website) so am really very much looking forward to it! If you are going to be at Anime Matsuri, Back-on Online would love to hear from you!
