Arena Tour 2005 Diary - Translations Completed
Posted 06 July 2005 - 08:18 AM
Here's the third and final installment of BoAjjang's official site translations of BoA's Arena Tour Diary 2005. For the complete Tour Diary, please visit this page. These entries were quite enjoyable to read and we wanted to share all of them with you. We hoped you enjoyed reading these as much as we enjoyed bringing them to you. From the BoAjjang staff, here are the final entries (#s 14-22).
All throughout the duration of her tour, BoA, her A&R, and other close staff members have kept a mini-log of events and interesting things that have happened. It's a simple, succinct, yet entertaining blog-type page that can be found on BoA's Avex home site which documents candid moments and brief commentaries.
Note: We tried to keep the translations as close as possible, hence the "LOLs" and the "Fake BoA" on one of the excerpts, which as further mentioned, is actually a staffer close to BoA.

No. 14 - BoA, The Gamer
(2005/04/20 - 12:01)
Good afternoon. I'm fake BoA. BoA's ARENA TOUR 2005 will finish with the last two performances in Nagoya. From the March rehearsal, time went by really fast. Personally I want to meet more of you and I'm feeling a bit lonely already!
Lately our BoA-chan, between concerts, in the car, during break from work, etc…when she has time, she will do nothing but play with her PSP (Playstation Portable). You're all shocked about this news, right!? I was shocked too. From the back of the car you can hear “kya~!!” “wa~!!” “I did it~!!” non-stop!! So I thought to myself: BoA is a modern kid after all! BoA asked me if I wanted to play her game PSP, but since I'm not not good with video games, I refused her offer. Can all of you imagine BoA as a gamer!? By the way, this snapshot was taken on Shinkansen, and it shows BoA engrossed in her PSP.

No. 15 - Nagano's famous products
(2005/04/22 - 13:36)
Good afternoon. I'm Fake BoA. I always start with this line, right!? Sorry, I'm not artistic…*sobs* According to the weather forecast, the weekend is going to be sunny. It seems that we'll be able to do a wonderful (Final) LIVE. It's going to be a story about food again, but speaking of Nagoya, there are many delicious food here such as "miso stew udon," chicken wings, and some of the usual food like red bean toasts, spaghetti covered with red bean, etc. I wonder where we could find more delicious food? I can't wait. People who live in Nagoya, please show us restaurants that serve delicious food!!

No. 16 - More and More...
(2005/04/23 - 17:22)
We're finally here. Our last destination—Nagoya! I'm A&R and there is a mounting tension building up within me.
Yesterday we arrived with BoA in Nagoya. At first, BoA and everyone wanted to go and eat at a Chinese restaurant, but since BoA wanted to concentrate, she went back to eat in the hotel by herself.
So we went without BoA. The picture shows the spicy ramen (hotness = 20x) from the restaurant. We showed a lot of fighting spirit. Everyone was sobbing while eating the spicy ramen, I wonder if BoA, who loves spicy food, can finish the noodle!?
By the way, BoA brought fried rice and gyoza (souvenirs) for everyone.
To Everyone, BoA so far had cried in every single LIVE, so please show your support for BoA in Nagano, a place that is famous for its many legends.

No. 18 - BoA's Ball (**)
(2005/04/25 - 14:02)
Thank you guys for all the support yesterday at our final day at Nagano. The crowd was really great~! Everyone was really really wonderful near the closing too! This year, everybody from the band, dancers, and the staffs all dressed up and it was really fun!!
The LIVE is already finished today, and since it'll be okay for me to reveal this, let's talk about how BoA threw balls to the crowds during the LIVE. If you look at the picture, it's very obvious that they were very colourful balls. Souvenirs like this were signed by BoA with love before the start of every LIVE. What she wrote for each ball is different, but there are “BoA” “ボア” “ぼあ” “(**)” “BEST OF SOUL” and many more designs. Were you guys able to catch the balls? For those of you who caught it, you guys are truly lucky!
Although the Live has already ended, the journal will continue a bit more~

No. 19 - Thank You Tears
(2005/04/27 - 02:11)
It's A&R (still not done with my work) again!! Good evening.
Well, BoA Arena Tour 2005-Best of Soul-ended successfully on April 24 in Nagoya. I'm filled with emotion, and honestly I feel like my skin had been "cast-off" into a somewhat semi-permanent smile.
The LIVE, just like BoA said, was supported by lots of people. Despite everything, the cheers, smiles, and tears from everyone gave not just BoA, but all of us encouragement as well. We felt very fortunate. Please excuse my language but please allow me to say this: You guys are the best!! Thanks so much!!
Okay sorry about my use of language earlier (LOL) and moving on, these pictures above are from the LIVE.
And yes! We are already thinking about the next project! And what's more, they are all one after the other! We will release them in the next couple few days so please look forward to it!

(2005/04/28 - 02:05)

I'm doing this and that. Please continue to look forward to it!

No. 21 - BoA's ARENA TOUR Report
(2005/05/09 - 00:49)
It's A&R. I'm Ohisa. This Tour Journal is going to end this week, but please look forward to the remaining entries.
Today we checked the recording for the LIVE. It's so cool and cute!! Probably no recording will ever top this one!! You guys must go check it out when it airs on the TV! And what about the DVD? We'll tell you all about it tomorrow!! Don't miss it!!
No. 22 - Last Entry
(2005/05/11 - 11:02)
Did you guys cherish all of the journal entries? This "Tour Journal" is finally coming to an end.
Come to think of it, the tour developed into many directions while the original concept was only to give updates in a formal style. The manager also became very involved with the development of this journal too.
This will be the last entry to this column, but because the next column is already underway, so please look foward to it! Still more about the afterglow of the tour is coming up! (LOL)
For all of you who have been reading this journal, thank you very much. And please continue to support us!
Oh! Did you guys already check the info on the DVD? This time, it's going to be in 2 CDs. Since it's a great piece of work that will surely satisfy everyone, please look forward to it!
