The final set of shows have been performed. As with previous sets of shows, the setlist and members were the same both mights. The selist was almost the same as DOOMSDAYs V & VI, but with a slight difference, as Onedari Daisakusen was switched with GJ! and Akatsuki was switched with No Rain, No Rainbow, and now included SU-METAL playing the piano.

DOOMSDAY X did have a change with the previous night. At the end of the show SU-METAL hits 10 gongs instead of 1, as she had done all previous nights. Each one showed one of the EPISODE’s of METAL RESISTANCE. And after that there was a lore indicating the end of the METAL RESISTANCE, and teasing once more the “LIVING LEGEND”. Below I put the full text.

There was no announcement in the end at the shows, which many fans were looking forward to. However an hour after the show ended BABYMETAL announced a worldwide livestream of the “10 BABYMETAL BUDOKAN” shows for June 26th. This was the reason for moving THE ONE opening ahead a week.

Crucifixion during BABYMETAL DEATH:

One of the “LADYBONES”:

SU-METAL playing piano during No Rain, No Rainbow:

As one fan described:

(1) A grand piano with BABYMETAL logo appeared on stage during the first guitar duo. The piano was spot lighted (2) After the duo play Su sat at the piano and started singing and playing piano (It looked to me she was actually playing but not sure) (3) In the middle of singing, all lighting was suddenly down and blacked out (4) some 20 seconds after, Su appeared in the center of the stage and restarted singing …. Oh! My! What a performance of my favorite song! I teared up. Coincidentally, It was raining this evening in Tokyo.

From Hochi News:

While singing the final song “Road of Resistance”, SU-METAL (23) was deeply moved, saying, “We have finally reached the final.” “Thank you very much to everyone around the world who have continued to support our challenge, and to all of you who gathered at the Budokan.” It ended with the sound of the ten bells at the end as a signal of departure.

End of show:

Lore transcribed:

METAL RESISTANCE finally comes to a close after a 10-year battle.
The “10 count gong” marking the end of the battle will eventually turn into a signal of departure.
The 3 metal spirits that have been shining since 2010, even if they were to leave earth, would continue to shine forever in our hearts and across the Metal Galaxy.
A legend turns into a myth which turns into a LIVING LEGEND…
What lies ahead beyond the end of the stairway to becoming a LIVING LEGEND is something Only the fox gold knows.

From the press release:

“At the ending of the live, it was announced that Babymetal would depart from the world they had carved out in the past 10 years and move on to “Living Legend”.”

Ohmura:

While I was playing, I felt the impact of something hitting the head of my guitar and pushing it, and I was really startled and looked to the side, but there was no one there. I looked to the side but didn’t see anyone.🍺🚬

But that’s too much mischief🍻.

Looking back, there were a few funny parts🤔.
I went out of my way to use only new picks today, and I had set up a corner with only new picks, but when I changed picks before the song where I used my nerves the most, I grabbed a completely different pick. I immediately threw it away and took the pick that was attached to the head.
This is impossible.
