Perhaps the greatest or most memorable moment of Cri Show II occurred in Saitama near the end of the tour. (The tour actually ended back in Seoul with a final concert.) The show coincided with JKS' 20th year in show business. To mark that anniversary well, Eels donated towards the cost of a blimp for him to commemorate the date. Watch his reaction. I guarantee you'll both cry and grin. If any new Eels occasionally wonder if JKS' words of love and affection for his Eels are real, here's why his words are real and not affected.*
Nevertheless, he went on to put on a perfectly wonderful performance that won even more hearts among the Japanese. His fame throughout Japan continued to grow as a result of his Cri Shows and other tours.
*Note: This is the probably the only time JKS was at a complete loss for words.
