Introducing Dareka no Tame ni
What was in your mind when Dareka no Tame ni was announced as the second stage for team J? honestly, there’s confusion and the unfamiliar feeling of it if you are not into a stage-afficionado fan.
I might cheer myself more if the upcoming stage is named “Theatre no Megami” or “Idol no Yoake”. The legacy must be moved and keep reminisced, team J will have a chance to make this setlist into another scenery.
Originally performed by Team A, Dareka No Tame ni can be classified as the old kind. This setlist has its own origin and developing in some ways. Before 2009, setlists are certain of less than 16 songs, mostly has only three opening songs, and sometimes there are more than five persons in one unit song.
To be put as comparison, DareTameNi can be put as the least favorite within Team A’s setlists. Credit goes to NMB who made this setlist come up to the surface and revived it with their own way quite well.
NMB had done DareTameNi in three period of time. First was the first stage of the first generation research student, and then for the team N first stage, the last as the waiting stage for the now performing first team N original setlist.
Overall, DareTameNi is no different than any style of Team A. Its contents are still the easy listening vibe, classy pioneer-team mood, and the heartbreaking lyric.
I have done a research regarding this setlist through the Live on Demand and DVD stage. Honestly, The Osaka version is slightly better than the original regardless the time they perform it.
To make it short, here’s my notion of the stage:
The opening song is the key of the setlist, it gives the feeling of how the setlist will go. Forget the stellar star-seifuku solo opening, Tsukimishou offers you the girls dancing beyond your expectation. Shortly, Tsukimishou is kind of japanese festival music, debateable-folk, with the scene of Bon Odori celebration.
M03.Tanjoubi no Yoru
This song is usually played on every birthday member show (seitansai) before the release of Namida Surprise. Yes, it’s a birthday theme song and better than Namida Surprise in my own honest opinion.
One of the famous unit songs, widely known by the winged seifuku and it’s majestic performance once in Saitama Super Arena. Whether it will be Melody or Kinal who will center the song, I hope the chosen one will do it gorgeously.
M05.Nage Kissu De Uchi Otose
One of the proof the old kind setlist where more than five persons can be gathered in one unit song. Consist of six members, Nage Kissu is one cheerful song that can’t be forgotten.
Made for couple, sweet and moody voice will do the song. Tough this is not much better than Kinjirareta Futari, Hary ga Kuru Made, Higurashi no Koi, etc. I hope Ve will be the one of the singers as the replacement of my long awaited desire to see her singing Yokaze no Shiwaza.
The song comes with a story. So there’s a guy named Hirofumi Fukuhara and getting nicknamed as Rider. He’s a loyal fan who had been watching the show since its tenth day. Then, he gone sick and passed away. The real example of the so called skyman
(skyman is a dead person, literally).
M08.Seifuku ga Jama wo Suru
The single on AKB48 struggling era, pardon the moan but gonna like those lousy seifuku.
M09-M011 Natsu ga Icchatta-Koike-Tsuki no Katachi
Though this part after unit songs is considered as the boring one, I like Tsuki no Katachi with its trumpet melody. I can’t go on technically speaking about these songs before I watch them myself.
M12.Dareka no Tame ni
Dareka no Tame no gets its popularity by being a famous charity song presented by an idol group. Also become the title of the setlist and a laid back song just like Boku no Sakura, Ano Koro no Sneakers, and Yuuhi wo Miteiruka.
This is the main difference among the group who’s performing this setlist. The Medley part has different songs based on the group’s single, and it’s likely possible to feature “JKT48” song for the first time in the theatre.
M14.Namida Uri no Shoujo
The last song, it becomes one of my favourite songs in this setlist for its dark tone that goes well with its all black seifuku.
More or less, there will be some differences like the seifuku and other technical things. Just like NMB48, JKT48 especially team J is expected to give its own color and meaning into this setlist.
Renai Kinshi Jourei has already became a good change of pace for team J, it was decent and somehow memorable. This setlist will become one of the ways team J getting its identity and maturity just like the two previous pioneer teams.
What can you do for someone? Yes, you can love this setlist.
