Special Concert BD 2011 RHYTHM TANK!! at Nippon Budokan
Review by David Cirone
May’n’s power as a live performer keeps growing, and it’s the key ingredient to her rising success and legions of loyal fans all over Asia. Since her beginnings as part of HoriPro Agency’s Talent Scout Caravan, she’s lived up to her promise to give an unforgettable performance every chance she gets. She’s playing for keeps, and if you ever see her live interviews, you can see a determination and resolve uncharacteristic for such a young performer.
From the very beginning of this special concert DVD, she taps into a seemingly unlimited reservoir of energy. The loud shout of “BUDOKAAAAN!” coming out of her petite frame shows complete confidence, and as she launches into “Kimi Shinitamou Koto Nakare,” she just simply owns the place for the run of the this 2-hour+ live show.
