"PRISM, Light and Shadow in 7 colours" WORLD ORDER's 10th anniversary Show
The time is finally here! WORLD ORDER Celebrates their 10th anniversary with 3 Sold-out Shows.
The Shows take place at the Kanda Myojin Hall, a Venue part of the Culture Complex located inside the Kanda Myojin Temple, in central Tokyo.
The Atmosphere is stimulated since the morning, by the posts of some of the Members, showing their arrival to the Venue through their Social Networks.

30 Min before Gig start, the doors open and the audience can access the Hall, joyfully decorated with many Flower arrangements, sent by several groups of Fans for this special occasion.
(The arrangement in which we, and other non-Japanese Fans participated as "Flower-Power for the Members" promotion, is also displayed here. We’ll describe it in detail, a bit later).
At 18:00 pm, the lights go out. Our 7 favourite suited men enter the stage, and start the show with 2 classical Pieces: MIND SHIFT and MACHINE CIVILISATION, as usual, every movement studied until perfection.
The Venue allows a really good view even from the back rows in the lower floor. There is a Big screen behind the Stage, which brings additional gorgeous close-ups and the takes from a ceiling camera, which allow the view of the shapes formed by the members bodies on the floor, at some parts of the Show.
The Performance goes on with a long intro, in which each member walks in different styles and directions to finally gather in the centre. This leads to the start of HISTORY OF VOICE, performed again since long time by 6 Members. Something special during this Number, is Doru dancing at Joony’s place, instead of Masato’s, whose place was taken this time by Takuro.
After the perfectly rigid Yusuke is successfully rolled among his Dance-Mates, they pass to the sexy and energetic BLUE BOUNDARY, all along accompanied by enthusiastic clapping from the Audience, and some extra loud cheering, at the points where Shizu playfully encourages the audience to do so.
A little interval follows, in which the members walk under a yellowish light, to the "tic-toc" of what sounds like a tower clock, to finally position at different spots, each of them under a blue-red light. The interval closes with 3 tower-clockbell rings.

This is the passage to the “PERMANENT REVOLUTION / FIND THE LIGHT” Medley, followed by CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
This marks the first emotional highlight of the Show: The energetic Beat of the Song, triggers enthusiastic clapping since the beginning; Doru's perfectly suiting vocals and his dancing intro are simply amazing every time! The middle passage with the Members dancing in pairs or trios, each group building elaborated steps and shapes… one better than the other! But the climax of this song comes really with the Member’s Solos, again, each of them better than the other.
This time, although using the same Music as in the Bangkok Show, the Members seem more relaxed, inspired, and probably less tired (NB: personal opinion!). All Solos are way more elaborated, specially Aki's who was in best form. But the one which really stands out (IMHO) was Takuro's. He lets all his dancing influences shine, including Moonwalk, high jumps and groovy steps. Powerful and sexy at the same time!
And without any interval or time to recover from the sexiness impact, a new Solo Music sounds and a new silhouette enters the Stage: It's former Member Masato Ochiai dressed in suit, performing his best robotic moves in a yet more impressive Solo.
The Hall is literally set into a collective Hysteria: The audience scream, call his Name “Maaa-kun! Maaa-San!”, cries, sobs…
an overall touching moment in which almost no eye remains dry.
The Song is closed with all 8 Members standing all along the Stage, under a different coloured light.
Beautiful and touching.

The Show carries on with AQUARIUS, featuring Masato at the front, (while Shizu leaves for a break) and the spin-jump performed by Tomizo and Aki (again since long time), flawlessly; As next, under constant cheering and clapping, comes MULTIPOLARITY, kept as original with 6 Members; This time Doru and Takuro leave the stage and Shizu takes, as usual, Joony’s place.
As next, a Chat break takes place. I'll summarise here, the Highlights of all 3 Shows
The members start a lively Chat about Masato being again on stage:
Yusuke: "Ma-kun’s Karate moves were very fast and sharp. I almost felt the wind".
Doru: "It seems it took a while until the audience noticed it was Masato-san.
It was the first time we met. I’m so happy because I’ve wanted to meet him for a long time".
Masato: "It was so much fun to dance like this. The new members were so helpful to make my hair and calm my nerves backstage. They are so nice and friendly.
I was also happy to meet the old members".
