It Could Happen To You…

About halfway through the concert, I was struck by an arrow. There was a realization that there was girl on stage I did not recognize. Who was she? Long black hair. Blank expression. To be honest, a little plain looking, especially when put next to the likes of Momoko, Risako, …

Majidesuka Ska: Half n’ Half.
