As an XFLAG Entertainment Partner, not only will Kyary be responsible for expanding the possibilities of entertainment created by XFLAG, she will also pursue and bring to life “exceptional” entertainment together with the company that no-one has yet experienced.

Her first job as an XFLAG Entertainment Partner was her surprise appearance at B.LEAGUE 21: Chiba Jets vs. Sun Rockers Shibuya Powered by XFLAG, a basketball match held at Funabashi Arena on March 3rd and XFLAG‘s first crown game.

 

When the match’s halftime show began, a video played onscreen in the venue where Kyary Pamyu Pamyu enthusiastically announced her appointment as an XFLAG Entertainment Partner: “I will challenge myself to new things that I’ve never done before. I want to set about working on various things together with XFLAG.”

Once the video had finished, a long line of dancers appeared and a big box was carried onto the court all of a sudden as a ‘delivery’ from XFLAG. The moment the spotlight shone on stage, the box was thrown open and out stepped Kyary Pamyu Pamyu! The roars of 5,000 or so people filled the venue at her sudden appearance.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu responded to the cheers with a wave of her hand and commented, “The enthusiasm of all the Chiba Jets Booster’s* here is amazing, it’s exciting. I’m having fun too!” She went on to say, “I’m here to deliver a special halftime show for everyone!” The hitting of the start button signaled the beginning of the show. An international acrobatic basketball team appeared from the darkness dressed in body suits that sparkled with the LED lights to put on an enchanting and powerful dance performance.

[Translator’s Note: “Booster” is the name given to fans of the Chiba Jets.]

 

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu recently announced her 4th world tour scheduled for 2018. Last year, she held her first ever Halloween solo concert themed on “Japanese haunted houses,” titled THE SPOOKY OBAKEYASHIKI ~PUMPKINS STRIKE BACK~.
