I went to Hino Fest, an event celebrating the 55th anniversary of Hino Hideshi’s painting career
First, let’s have a meal
Shinbusakiya, a few minutes walk from the venue
Bottled beer and ramen
I couldn’t relax like I usually do at Hidakaya, so I came out with just one beer
By the way, here’s today’s shirt
When I headed to the venue, the doors were already open.
Hino hideshi himself was not performing today, and there were no pictures on display
Just a three-man show
The only thing that was a bit like the Hino festival was that there was a corner where Nakajima Nobu introduced some of his treasures in between
First up was Ningen Isu
Maybe it was because they had less time
Usually the three of them appear in a row, but they were all in the same place
Wajima signaled the end of the SE and the songs started
1 Heartless Scat
I knew they would play it, but I didn’t expect it to be the first song.
The big foreigner in front of me was also in high spirits
Is it a famous song after all?
However, I felt sorry for this foreigner who lost his energy a little after the staff warned him for taking pictures even though he was not allowed to take pictures.
2 Hoichi Passion
The next song was also easy to get excited The venue was getting warmed up
I didn’t know that the next song was written by Hino-Hideshi after the MC.
3 Isolated Island of Illusion
I didn’t expect them to play this song at the festival!
I thought they would only play standard songs today, so I was happy to hear this one
I think I’ll buy the comic book too
And here comes the “Nobu Corner”
The song was as expected
4 Hell Boy
5 A Tale of Pus
6 A tumor with a human face
It’s a standard song, but I hadn’t heard it subtly recently, and it was very good
The last song was, of course
7 Hell’s Mountain Of Needles
During the changeover, Nobu and the hostess introduced Nobu’s treasures on the sub stage
Hino Hideshi’s treasures, which only Nobu would have in the world
Nobu is amazing
The next stage was Ishino Takkyu
I’ve seen him once with this about 10 years ago
The dance floor space created by Takkyu with exitement
Without saying a word, he left with a moonwalk at the end
Togawa Jun at the end
This is the third time I’ve seen him with Ningen Isu
I know there’s something about her unique way of singing and talking that draws people in, but
I didn’t understand it very well.
I heard they’re going to play Hino Fest in five years for the 60th anniversary, so I’ll see them again then
I hope everyone is doing well.
