SUPER★DRAGON’s 5th Anniversary – In their Own Words


a special presentation and translation by nine dragons

SUPER★DRAGON first performed as a complete unit on September 27th, 2015 during the annual Ebidan Kids revue show, “Hoshiomatsuri.” From the moment Tsuyoshi nervously called out to the audience as the music that would come to be SUPER★DRAGON’s began to play in that small theatre, to the moment the curtain fell over a stage of just 9 people as fans all over the world tuned in to the live broadcast of their 5th Anniversary Online Live, the moments gathered by SUPER★DRAGON members, fans, and all of the staff who have made this happen for both of us, are almost too numerous to count and yet too precious to forget.

The team at Nine Dragons are thankful to SUPER★DRAGON for existing, bringing the group of people reading this page together, and touching each of our lives in our own ways. We would like to bring you our translation of their 5th Anniversary messages from the official LINE blog and official Instagram accounts in hopes that people all over the world can share in this moment with SUPER★DRAGON and us fans.

Thank you for continuing to support SUPER★DRAGON!

It’s Cool Koki.

Today, we celebrated Supdra’s 5th anniversary. Thank you.

On our anniversary date, we were lucky enough to have an awesome time with our fans throughout the entire day with the “SUPER★DRAGON 5th anniversary ONLINE LIVE” project.

What we’ve been doing for these past 5 years is not something just anyone and everyone can do.

The only ones who can do it are…

Reo Shimura, Tsuyoshi Furukawa, Jean Kaito, Hayate Iijima, Sougo Ito, Hyoma Ikeda, Tomoya Matsumura, Raku Shibazaki…

…And all of the people who have decided to call themselves “SUPER★DRAGON’s fan” at some point in their life.

Spending this time with all of the people I mentioned above, in the happiest time of my life, has been a pleasure.

The other members are the greatest people I could be with. Today especially I thought to myself how much I want to be with these people together as we overcome hardship, experience happiness, and keep smiling as we climb higher and higher.

Well, I wasn’t sure if I was going to talk about this, but it looks like I’m going to talk about it anyway haha

Once the broadcast ended, there was that time when all the staff who have worked hard to make our livestream a success came forward and all the members were there, and we turned to one another and said “Great work today!” with huge smiles on our faces

I managed to hang on and not let myself cry earlier on

But before I realized what was happening, I just fell back into the darkness, crying and crying with a huge smile on my face. Hahahaha

All I could think in that moment was…

“I’m so happy to be here.”

Okay that’s enough of being embarrassing LOL

So! With all that said…

From now until all the years and then all the years more, running like crazy without stopping will be us. Please enjoy watching where we end up running to!

That’s all from me for now

Cool Koki out!

See ya!











Ah, speaking of which, I permed my hair.

Tomoya’s Blog


Hey, it’s Tomoya.

Yesterday we turned 5 years old.

Even though I’ve only been existing for 16 years, I’ve spent 5 of them here already. That really makes me think a lot. Every minute, every second of my time with Supdra has been filled with love.

You know, whoever invented language might have been a genius, and yet we still can’t invent words adequate to express our emotions as they are. Tucked away in my heart, there’s so many things I can only tell you with my eyes.

At any rate, thank you for sticking it out for five years.

Everyone please stay for the 6th year too.

Alright then… g’night

Tsuyoshi’s Blog


Yesterday, we welcomed our 5th year anniversary. Finally, I think I’m feeling a bit faded out.

Like, really? The SECRET BASE live already happened?

It must have been a good show.

Nah, I remember; it was a perfect show. It was amazing and fun and wonderful.

In order to be ready for the big moment, it’s like I haven’t had a single letter of a thought linger in my mind.

Surrounded by the wonderful staff who have given us this opportunity to be together, doing the things we love to do, I can be nothing but delighted that this moment is overflowing with such hope and passion for us and our future.

Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.

In this life, there are, of course, times when I face those feelings of greed and impatience. But once I come to my senses, I must admit that what we are doing is something perhaps unprecedented. Who else is out there doing this the way we are?

I’m going to be honest: there isn’t anyone.

I can pretty much swear on it that we are the most innovative ones out here now.

This is what makes me love SUPER★DRAGON.

We all know that, no matter what you think should be right or fair or how much you indulge your imagination, the future that will come to exist in reality is something no one can know.

Even so, I choose to have faith. I’m putting all of that faith in us. That we will acheive success beyond what we have even dreamed, that we will triumph over all obstacles, that we will remain our true selves, that the world we grasp from the sky like a flying arrow in midair will be that future that we have shared as our vision. That’s what I believe in. But I know that we will have to carve this out ourselves. I don’t actually care what others think is realistic for us, or what people think about what our “level” is.

We could take the same path as everyone else, but I don’t want to be like everyone else. I don’t want to go where everyone else is going. If that’s where we end up, I have zero interest, sorry. If you believe that the power of your thoughts can manifest in the collective, I would tell this higher power just this: that I don’t even care about even what happens to my own life. I don’t care as long as we can do this.

Yes, I’m okay.

Don’t worry. I say this out of a place of love.

From here on out, we’ll keep going so that we can reach more and more people who haven’t heard of Supdra yet. In that moment when we can reap the rewards of our efforts, I need it to be with 9 people. When that time comes, I need you in front of me. I need to see all of you who have had faith with me, continued alongside us, and kept supporting us through everything.

I’m asking you humbly to please continue giving us that support.

After this, I wonder what interesting things will come forth. We’ll keep working hard to improve.

From the bottom of my heart, and always, thank you.

Please take care of yourselves to stay healthy!

I leave you with this…

This is Hyoma Ikeda.



Thanks for supporting our 5th Anniversary Live. A collective of everything we’ve done so far, the first and second parts were both a pleasure to share with you. Above all else, I was glad that I could share September 27th, the day we celebrate as our anniversary date, by spending that day with you all.

I won’t go on and on.

I’ll leave you with this:

From here on out, we’ll be leaping towards our 6th year. Please keep supporting us in that time.

And for the support you’ve already given, thank you so much.

Thanks for supporting us in the 5th Anniversary Live.

No matter how you slice it, it’s been a very enriching five years. I’m so happy that we’ve managed to get through this together and remain 9. The 2020/09/27 Express Train will keep going until the end, and this stop is just one of many up ahead.

From here on out, we’ll keep going as 9.

We’ll take you to lots and lots of wonderful places.

Thanks for coming along!











Q: In your previous blog, did you use a platform access ticket to take the picture? Or if not, where did you go?

A: I used a platform access ticket to just look at the train. Maybe it was the weekday evening or maybe not, but it seems like there’s more and more travelers these days. Yay!

Q: The other day I was walking from Shibuya to Harajuku, and when I was next to the tracks I saw a completely blue train! The exterior looked so cool but I don’t know the name. Any ideas what it might be?!

A: Sounds like a Sotetsu 12000, perhaps? They’re using this one for direct routes on the Saikyo Line.

Q: I’m a Hachiko Line commuter, but I’m only using the segment from Takasaki to Komagawa as I’m living in Gunma Prefecture. Is the train ride from Komagawa to Tokyo much different?

A: That segment runs on diesel cars and therefore wouldn’t be considered a “densha” (electric train) per se, but the segment from Komagawa to Hachioji runs on train cars. The car types and timetables are completely separate.

Q: Sougo, which shinkansen is your favorite?

A: It’s a tie between E2 and E4 I think! For the route I like Joetsu. The one I’m into lately is San’yo. As for Mizuho and so forth, I’m looking forward to trying it.

I am always accepting more questions!
