It was a hot and humid night, and after spending the first part of it with the Tokyo Munchers  I decided to end the night by going to Sleeping Beauty for the Ichinawakai's Happyoukai (Recital), show from previous students of Kinoko-sama that have graduated and are now nawashi on their own.

I arrived in the middle of the Recital and unfortunately missed Kinoko's show (and many others as well). But the remaining shows I was able to witness were very good and interesting. 

There was a nawashi from Osaka whose show was very passionate and funny.

He mixed comedy element such as when he would pull the rope very fast, almost parody like, following the fast paced rhythm of the music while standing behind the model, and yet at the same time he was intensely passionate when passing the rope on her body.
It made for a very fresh approach to rope, giving the viewers a few chuckles.

Then there was a show by a couple of sexy girls, a Dominatrix and a Mjou (masochist model), depicting a lesbian love-story. 

The rope was interesting and unusual, with asymmetric arm binding instead of the standard takatekote. Hot wax was also part of this performance and the mistress made the model hold the candle and then guided the hand to drip the wax all over her own body. 

Being a shoe-lover, I especially appreciated when the Dominatrix gave the Mjou a spanking using pretty red high heel shoes before putting them on her feet, and then giving her a red dress.
The mistress tying too was in a red dress and at the end she tied a red ribbon that was secured to the model pinky to her own and bind both their arms together with "fate's red thread" 運命の赤い糸.

It was Shishikawa-san 's turn next. His performance with his tiny model was energetic and fast. 

He whipped her pretty hard, among other things, before getting her to change many time her suspended position in a fast paced and hard on the model series. A very intense moment was when, after having her upside down, he pulled her up by her hair before letting her fall - controlled but almost free fall - back down to dangling by her ankles.

The shows were all of very high level, as it was to be expected, and they managed to bring different flavors, different interpretation of rope and kinbaku. But it was also clear that they all loved what they were doing, whether tying or being tied. And the atmosphere was one of sharing into a common interest. 

And with the end of the shows, it was time to go back to mingle with the crowd, among which there was Kazami Ranki.  Hopefully one day I will be able to see him in action as well.
