h: "We are L'Arc~en~Ciel!!!!!! Uhhhhhh!! Well,..... Be welcome to L'Anniversary!! 

20 years have passed. Thank.....you. Ahh, well, "The rain is a stage effect, so.... There might be a rainbow appearing at the end. So we have come here to have fun with you~. Today, well, we’ll play the songs released until 1998.... It's kind of a day for the maniacs for L'Arc~en~Ciel, though.... Is that fine for you? (smile) Today, it feels that way, doesn’t it? It means that fairly 5.0000...5.0000  hard core fans are gathered here today, right? Well, your enthusiasm can be seen in your every details~ (smile) That's right? You've all been spending time together with L'Arc until now and that’s why you came here today, right? 

Certainly, when you listen to a song, it starts to bring you a lot of memories, doesn’t it? That’s the face you’re making~ (smile) Let's have much fun together today!!!Can we play it Aji Suta!!!Can we do it!!!! Then.... Let's get started...."

---During Blurry Eyes----

k: "(his butt is touched by tetsuya) Hnnnnn~ahhhhhhhh (gasping voice) After 20 years, you've come to touch a lot of things. Ah~ I wonder if I can tell it to you…. since I ended up remembering about it. 

Well, in the past, when we moved due to the TOUR by car, I used to feel very sleepy. I'd say "I'm going to sleep". Then, the member that was awoken would always say ..."Ah------!! No matter what’s up, you take a nap*!!! (*it can be understood as "even though it's erect, you sleep!!=P*)

Today we haven't had any.... any dirty joke yet. (smile) That’s because you could tell it just by looking at it. Come on, Come on~!! Like this, like this!!!! What? What was up?..... *What* was up? Well, well.......Let’s see…. Is everyone all wet? Oh, so you got wet!!! To which level? Until here? (**head**) Until here? (**chest**)Until here? (**waist**) There~? Until here!!!! (**between the legs!!**).... But, well, "what's up", you asked ME….!!

..... We're probably getting to become your spice, right? Yes. To the level of garam masala? Garam masala is quite soft so, maybe we're in the level of the nutmeg you put in your curry once a month? To that level? A bit more? Salt? Shoyu?.... Ajinomoto? (smile) We're getting to be to the level of Ajinomoto!!!!!! We're getting to be your Ajinomoto!!!!!! Well, then, how do we taste? I'm pretty sure you didn't lick us, ne~ (smile) Ajinomoto!!!!! Ajinomoto!!!!!! 

However, although I love Ajinomoto, I also really love bonito's soup (smile) Fufufu (laugh) You also like bonito's soup? What is L' Arc~en~Ciel for you? L'Arc~en~Ciel is your spice, how do you call it?..... Are you going to tell me what's the first letter it starts with? Ah? .... Well, without chatting… let’s do it this way.... This letter?.... (**he's making the letter with his hands**) Is it like a Y? (smile) Like an M? Such as a C?.... 
When you express it this way, you're also giving us your help~ (smile) What's L'Arc~en~Ciel to you? Wowwww~~~~~~ O? There considerably words that starts with "O"..... A!!! Next one? J ? (smile) It's Ajinomoto certainly!! (smile) 

Maybe if I return to the backstage, there will be a big quantity of Ajinomoto there~.... Then, I can sprinkle it over you, and do you~!!!!!!! Do you want to listen to the continuation? Do you want to listen to the continuation? How do you want to listen to the continuation? If you don’t say anything, I won't let you listen to it! How do you want me to play it? No!! Which way do you want to listen to? Ah--------!!! yukihiro san, help me please!!!!!"

-MC02-

t : "Fuuuuu~(smile) Nooo~... Everything I thought for the MC was said by ken-chan (smile) He said we thought of the very same things~(smile)"

h :"Is he lying? (smile)"

k :"What?.... Well.... He said when he wakes up in the morning; he's got an erection..."

t :"Nooo, it's not that. It's not that (smile) It was that part you talked about being wet"

h :"I liked it~(smile)"

t :"Yes, that part such as "Is everyone wet? Because of the rain, right? Where?" (smile). ken-chan, isn't it hard to finger your guitar when it's wet?"

k: "wet by the rain?"

t :"yes"

k :"It's easier to play it when it's slippery (smile)"

t :" You wanted to make me say that, but I won't (smile) No no no..... the MC after this song will be tough (smile)

ANATA".... And then I'll ask you "You're not going to make more of those dirty jokes?" Right?  (smile) 

You've truly gone a little bit too far~

Are you alright? You all came here today all stylish, perfectly dressed and with a wonderful makeup on, but something terribly big like this comes up!! (smile) This rain ... I'm sorry (smile) No, nothing will be ruined! You're all too beautiful for that. Fuu fuu (laugh) 

By the way, you all know the songs we've played until now?

Do you know all the songs? 

They're all of your knowledge? Do you know them well? That's truly great!! (smile) Did you come here with the lesson properly revised? It's also quite hard for us(smile) 

Yes, the fact is that  there won't be a repeated song in the both lives.... L'Arc~en~Ciel’s twenty-years  is not only once~ (smile)"

h: "yeah"

h: "Moreover, we always finish with "ANATA", right? ...... But we're still going to play more , ne (smile) Are you still alright, genki enough to continue? We're coming--------!! Yeah~----------------!!!!! Milky Way!!!"

-MC03-

h: "Hey!!!! Those feathers (**that came flying down during White Feathers**)....... Well~ the feathers.... ended up being flown by the wind. When I try to think about it, we did a lot of trial and error…. In the beginning, we tried doing it in many ways.... We put them in a basket and shook it to make them fly (smile) It looked awful (smile) They ended up falling down  in the beginning of the song!!  But we've become skilled at it... Does it feel pretty good in the rain? Yes. Well, until here it's been all as planned. Today.... I'll finish it without crying, it seems....

Lately, I've been moved to tears easily. The truth is that when I went out to get here by car today, I thought that everybody would be already here, rather wet.... But you were all waiting wearing raincoats (smile) You were quite cute.

The glowsticks you were using before were also cute and I wanted to keep on looking at you forever. Did you.... enjoy today? Well.... I included a lot of songs which lyrics have dark contents..... But are those all fine for you to listen to here today? When we play much of our early old songs, I get surprised thinking why there are so many lyrics that are so pessimist and dark (smile) Such as Natsu no Yuuutsu, ne, You might wonder "what has happened"? (smile) Yes.

But, as for the final song, we're going to play one that is a little more positive.... Ahhh, to finish, let's have a serious talk..... The entire revenue of the LIVE this time will be redirect as a donation. Unusually, I talked a lot with the members and..... we exchanged ideas and we got to this resolution and I thought it was a pretty good decision and rather expected from Laruku. I thought how great these gracious members are. 

Yeahhhhh..... I'm truly happy for being able to greet such day as this one today. Thank you so much. Even if might feel as impossible, if you don't advance forward, the aspirations start to get hard to visualize. So, I could greet today thinking that I could go forward with you. I'm really thankful that you came here even though it is raining. And thank you so much for all these 20 years. There's no rain that lasts forever. .... Listen to NIJI at the end, please".


----After the performance-----


t: "See you--------!!!"

"There's no rain that lasts forever"

Originally, he said 「止まない雨はない」

yamanai ame wa nai.

It could be also translated as "There's no unstoppable rain"

Hope I could help you~*
