I remember really liking the outfits that some of the characters in anime wore but I wasn't actually aware that people dressed up as these characters until I came across some videos by Fighting Dreamers Pro and probably some other cosplayers when I was randomly browsing YouTube one day. I then started to look things up online and eventually discovered a convention in my area.

I'm back again with this month's G=AGE update. This month hasn't been as busy as last month, but still plently of exciting things have been happening! So first of all let's start with the Osaka Summer Concert. This did technically happen at the end of last month but I was only able to talk about it briefly in last month's post so here's a somewhat more in depth report.
G=AGE in Osaka
The boys (along with a few of the G-BOY'S members) also stopped off at TOWER RECORDS Namba and TASY brought along the group's mascot, teddy bear neo Justice.
ROI's cute little smile in the first picture, I can't. Also VASA's hair looks good. Better than it did in the Girls Award performance especially (I say that with love lol).
Now onto the 31st, the actual day of the concert! For some reason I've found it pretty difficult to find fan reports of this concert so if anyone can link me to some I'd be grateful. From what I can gather though, it was pretty much the same as the previous Summer Concert but with some minor changes. For one, this time around FUMITO and MAHIRO weren't the only ones to wear the hula girl costumes.
As it was announced prior to the concert, this concert was also the debut of NEW AGE and G-EYE's new songs. I haven't heard anything about G-EYE's new song yet but it was confirmed by FUMITO in a blog post a few days later that NEW AGE's new song is called "Smile". The choreography was once again created by ROI, and FUMITO also hinted that the lyrics were written by VASA. Great for him as I seem to remember him mentioning in an interview a while back that he wanted to try writing lyrics!
Now onto this concert's goods! All of the goods from the previous concert were available to purchase as always (such as the penlights and badges) but there were also 3 new types of goods announced. A bag, new bromides, and 5 uchiwas (one for each member of G=AGE). Unfortunately, it was announced a few days before the concert that the uchiwas could not be sold due to water-damage but would later be available at the LOVE FAN-MEETING the following month. Here's the bag.
And here are some of the new bromides. Credit goes to @gagets_d
Oh no, VASA's awful hair from the Girls Award performance is back in some of these. Can we talk about how cute all of the ones with the boys in casual clothes are though? Especially the ROI ones, he looks so sweet with those little bunny ears! And the one where FUMITO and VASA are sharing a drink is too adorable. I want some of these so badly but I can't find anyone selling them anywhere. I don't really blame them though, haha. Also more yukata and Hawaii-themed bromides? Cute as always but I'm still kind of disappointed that they didn't put ROI in a cute yukata too.
G-BOY'S Twitter Updates
First was TAKUMI who was apparently in Canada at the time of his post.According to his post, TAKUMI is very interested in learning English.
Two days later was YU-TO who shared with us his interest in soccer. He says he wants to eventually be able to show of his skills to everyone. I wonder if he and ROI get along well considering they're both the same age and interested in soccer (plus they're both adorable and two of my faves, haha).
Then on the 8th was KAI who loves animals.
The following day was my favourite G-BOY'S member, HIROYUKI who is apparently interested in trying lots of different types of sweets.
It was SHO's turn on the 11th, who apparently really likes to cook and has taken cooking classes in the past. He says he wants to try cooking for everyone in G-BOY'S at some point.
Next on the 12th was another one of my favourite G-BOY'S members, KAITO who told us again about his Hula dance skills (which he already showed off at last month's Summer Concert). He also mentioned that he can play the ukelele and would like to show everyone in the future.
On the 14th was TAKUYA who told us he's been taking dance lessons since he was 9.
On the 17th was RYU-TA who likes riding bikes.
And finally, RYU-ICHI who like HIROYUKI, also likes sweets.
That only leaves G-BOY'S' leader, TAKANORI (since it seems that KO-SUKE has now left the agency). I wonder why TAKANORI hasn't posted anything yet.
The members did a Twitcast during the event (which I'm still kicking myself for missing!). Here's some screenshots of the broadcast that I found on Twitter. Credit goes to @voyager_0720
I laughed so much the first time I saw ROI in the top left picture. ROI is such a cutiepie normally yet he always seems to come out looking really hilarious in video screenshots (but I also happen to find his derp faces really cute, haha). Anyway, here's some more screenshots and credit for these goes to @F22M25
Now for the goods. As always, the previous event's goods returned as well as some new bromides. This was also the first time the official G=AGE uchiwas were sold!
Wow, are these cute! I love ROI's so much, his cute little smile and pose is too much. It seems that the uchiwas have brought to light everyone's member colours too. I think yellow is a nice colour for ROI! Now here are some of the new bromides.
I don't love these as much as I love the Osaka Summer Concert ones but they're cute as always. I especially like the one with all of the members sitting in a circle around neo Justice and of course the ROI ones! He's such a cute little prince.
And like at some previous events, at this fan-meeting the members gave away some of their personal belongings to some lucky fans. I won't post pictures of everything that was available here for now but you can find them on the official G=AGE Twitter account. I'm so jealous of whoever got ROI's stuff!
G-BOY'S giving their present to FUMITO. FUMITO is also wearing the watch that TASY gave him as a birthday present one year back when they were still in Johnny's.
Its currenly unknown what they were actually doing there (probably just taking photos and such) but TASY did post this picture later the same day, saying that he'd found "G-EYE" in the city.
FUMITO and I are eating together, then we pass to MAHIRO, MAHIRO passes to ROI-kun, there's only a little remaining, FUMITO and I struggle to get the last bite, ROI
devours the rest
FUMITO and I are like,,,
I thought it was adorable how they were all sharing the crepe, haha. VASA also mentions in this blog that he and FUMITO often eat together and he likes that FUMITO has such a sweet tooth. I've noticed that VASA seems to compliment FUMITO a lot in his blog posts, like let's not forget the time that he said FUMITO's hairstyle at Girls Award made him look cute and kind of sexy. These two are probably one of the cutest pairings in G=AGE so far.
I already had this kind of image of ROI before I'd even read VASA's blog. That he would be the type to steal someone else's food like a troll but you couldn't get mad at him for it because he's so cute. I knew it would probably be VASA whose food he would take too since both of them love to eat so much. I'm imagining so many cute scenarios now, haha.
