The Graduation Concert of Konno Asami ^-^

Today was the Graduation Concert of Konno Asami in Yoyogi National Gymnasium. A lot of Morning Musume and other Hello! Project groups were in the esplanade sharing goods and photographs of their favorites Idols. ^-^

Outside JR Harajuku Station, there were a lot of stands that sell Hello! Project non official photographs and videos, most of them, recorded and taken by fans themselves. :P

A lot of Hello! Project followers gathered next to the goods and photographs stands, waiting for friends or comrades. :P

Some fans put up a picture board with a message: "Don't forget that today is last concert of Ogawa Makoto too". :P

Also, this day, I met for the first time the most extreme Hello! Project followers:

I was impressed and scared at the same time. So energetic and powerful dance. I saw them doing the same steps inside the concert. Some people told me that this is called "wotagei". O_O

Anyway, Asami's graduation was great. Everybody used pink pen lights for cheer her up. I took only this small video because I ran out my camera's battery. -__-

I hope to return Yoyogi National Stadium again someday. ¡Congratulations Kon-kon! ^o^
