If only they were just a little bit closer to the stage.

I no longer feel like buying standard seat tickets at this point.

Well, if I was to briefly summarize the experience: you get to sit.

You can just sit down and enjoy the concert while taking it easy. There are rarely any annoying wota around you either. Everyone does the glowstick waving and the calls, but while also remembering to mind their manners. It’s the best.

I, too, go for family seats exclusively. I don’t attend concerts to make noise.

One time I had this elderly couple sitting in front of me at the family seating area. For a while I thought they might’ve been there to see their granddaughter perform or something, but suddenly the grandma got all fired up and pulled out her glowsticks, fans and whatnot. I bet she would’ve wanted to be in front row if only her legs and back could’ve taken it.

A family seat with a pair of 50k yen binoculars = the best.

If you have binoculars, it’s like watching a solo DVD.

You can sit down and there aren’t jumpers blocking your field of vision. Plus, the people around you are mostly all quiet. It’s very pleasant.

Now that I’m in my forties, standing up for two hours straight has gotten too be too much hassle. Half the time I’ll be wishing the concert was over already.

It’s not that I want to make noise or anything, but I always get a standard seat anyhow. I have a bad back so for me it’s just more uncomfortable to sit down.

Every now and then you’ll see exhausted salarymen sleeping in the family seats.

If you don’t know how to behave at H!P concerts, it’s best to start with a family seat. You only need to slightly wave around your glowstick.
40: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/08/13(木) 21:39:05.69 0.net
I don’t wave around a glowstick. I just applaud the group and keep the beat with my foot and stuff. There are lots of people with glowsticks, but there are also other people who don’t even clap — people who won’t move a muscle during the entire concert. There’s lots of variety to be found in the family seats.

Originally I always went for the family seats, but once I got used to it, I learned to enjoy the general admission seats.

I always get a family seat at Nakano when it’s a Hello Con. I get to carefully observe my oshi when she’s on stage, and I can just take it easy when it’s some group I don’t care about.

True, they’re lacking. But once you get older, general admission gets to be too unpleasant. You’ll know what I mean when you get older.

The first time I went, I got a general admission seat and couldn’t get into the groove of the concert at all. It was just no good. Ever since then, I’ve always went for a family seat. It’s too bad how so many of the shows these days are held in clubs.

I don’t get the appeal of family seats. It’s difficult to see anything from the second floor. If you’re in general admission and you’re close enough, you don’t even have to look through the monitors to see the members’ faces which makes you get fired up, and if you just want to focus on doing that you can. You don’t have to do the furicopy stuff and whatnot.

Simply being able to avoid contact with your fellow fans’ sweat gives meaning to family seats.
108: 名無し募集中。。。 2015/08/13(木) 22:53:26.51 0.net
But the best seats by far are the ones in the very front row or somewhere close by — you get to see the members’ expressions, even their sweat, with your naked eyes. That’s simply not possible if you’re in the family seats. It’s like a whole other world.

I want them to make special VIP seats. I’d pay 10 times the price of current tickets. Just some simple cuisine and wine would be enough.

The people who prefer family seats just enjoy taking in the atmosphere of the whole venue. And it’s fun seeing all you guys in general admission making noise. Also, one thing that sucks about general admission is if the person in front of you is really tall. You went to this concert to enjoy yourself, and yet, you have to spend it in agony. You’re going like, “why do I have to attend a concert just for the privilege of getting to stare at the back of this dude’s head?“
I can’t attend my first concert because I’m afraid
Kumai-chan might be in the seat in front of me

Why not switch your oshi to Kumai-chan?

Just do this:

For me it’s the other way around. I’m above 190cm and kind of worried about inconveniencing people if I attend a concert in one of the front rows.
Family seats plus binoculars seems like a good idea. Emphasis on “seems”
That guy wanting to see the idols sweat raised a red flag for me though.
I got family seats at a C-ute concert back in 2011, first row balcony at Zepp Yokohama. It was nice and relaxing and, as a bonus, Takahashi Ai and her family were sitting about 10 seats away in front row center.

btw, sometimes family seat rules don’t apply and people will stand anyway :P
I’ve been to 2 Morning Musume shows near Tokyo. Best concert experiences ever! Fans were super into it yet were still cool, I could see everything, and no camera phones out!
These complainers don’t know how good they have it…
Ok so I’m confused
I got a ticket to a summer harocon concert and I thought they’d sold out of family seating but I got an assigned spot (like floor 2, row #, spot #)
But I think the machine didn’t really give me a choice in terms of choosing so
Can someone please explain to me how seating works?
I expected to be standing tbh (although I guess sitting is good too especially during the hot summer in Tokyo right now)
At least I don’t have to worry about being crushed by sweaty wota
Oh wait I just looked at Nakano Sun Plaza and it’s only got seats from what I can see
I guess that explains it
Also I got a terrible seat orz
It’s on the balcony and almost at the back
Everything is gonna look like specks
When I sat in family seating once at Nakano, I thought everyone was gonna stay seated, but then everyone around me got up so I was forced to stand as well if I wanted to see anything
The front half of the balcony where the idols’ family and friends go seems like the only place where everyone stays seated (and doesn’t use glowsticks)
