Taking the year-end by storm, YuiKaori did a marvelous Kabedon (壁ドン lit. Wallpush) in their 2014 Live Tour, HEARTY PARTY! In its last day in Makuhari Messe, Chiba. We previously translated a detailed live report by 1523-san. The concert was also released in DVD and BD last June 3, 2015. Leveling up their
friendship, gay, bonds, the audience had managed to persuade the two to create their own versions of the popular ‘Kabedon.’ Not to mention, in this release, we also manage to learn more about their favorite phrases/buzzwords in the year 2014!
