The Event Itself
I watched the 4-hour event over BS Sky Perfect TV and re-watched the 2nd time on Fuji TV which had cuts. It starts with the pregame analysis, with the commentators. They tell themselves on what to expect and some of their personal predictions while waiting for the event. When the overture came to play, one of the three actually went and sang along with the audience.

The highlight was Lovetan’s return to senbatsu as she got the 2nd loudest cheers from the crowd, people were probably expecting something else so there you go. I’ll probably comment on that in another post. Kojiharu became the center of the single called Heart Ereki. Preorders for the single are long out.
Kimi dake ni Chu Chu Chu was performed by Tentoumu Chu led by the 3 musketeers. Eien Pressure was performed with several lineup changes as some of the members have graduated already. Koisuru Fortune Cookie was the last song to be performed.
