Osaka 7 May 2nd concert MC
On May 4th (Midori no Hi [Green Day] a national holiday in Japan) Shige took Koyama out for sushi for his birthday, and then reserved him a ticket to go see “Beauty and Beast” by himself since Shige couldn’t go because he had to get up early the next day for Bibitto. Since there was an hour of free time between dinner and the movie, Shige went over to Koyama’s house for the first time and wrote “ Yaaay! It’s Shige” in permanent marker on his kitchen countertop. Koyama also believed Shige that the permanent marker can be cleaned off (Source 1 2) Note: Some fans call "Midori no Hi" Shige's day as, well, it's Green Day.

They mentioned that they had talked about having a wine party with all 4 members. (Source 1 2)
