Bad and Good News

After I checked the reports on yesterday's Dome concert, some wrote there was a FIRE!!
Fire Sparks went off after "Kotoba yori Taisetsuna Mono" at the main stage.
But the fire didn't go out completely and two had smoke coming out, the flame burned and remained for a while.
Then "YOUR SONG" started.
Jun kun and the staffs noticed one of them and the spark which fell on the floor was put out by his foot.
And Aiba chan went back stage and notify the staffs
Mean while Nino chan noticed it and he took off his T-shirt and put the fire out like that.
And he put his T-shirt back on.
The hem of the right sleeve of Nino chan's T-shirt was burnt black.

There were no injuries and everyone was fine.

So the dome tours of our five boys have been quite unlucky so far. First, Sho falls and breaks a thumb and obtains some other minor injuries, now, this.

I can't help but worry for the boys since they have been exposed to a lot of danger lately. I do hope they be more careful.

Going back to the news, I'm so proud of the three! I mean if it happened to other people, those guys must've just stood there and froze to watch everything catch fire.

Here's where I got the news by the way. CR Arashi News Thread

Arashi Addiction Hajimaru Yo!!!

The blogging starts here!

But the addiction has already started and now entering a new level. ^_^ At least that's how I think about it.

I wonder how long I'll stay mad about Arashi. Man, I'm definitely going crazy for the bunch. Evey minute, day in, day out I keep on thinking about these guys.

History of the addiction:
I blogged about watching YTM a few months ago. At that time, I wasn't aware of the impact of the drama yet. But it definitely changed my life. So I read my post once again and I saw that I can't even spell Ninomiya's family name. *Uwa?!!! How can I not know my future surname's spelling?!! lol*. I can't really remember the things that happened but I know that the addiction started there. I fell in love with Nino right after watching the drama so I decided to do a little research on the guy. I was actually looking for more dramas where he also starred in. In the process, I found out that he was a member of Arashi. (for those who don't know, Arashi is a Japanese band under JE)... Then after, no thanks to my terrible memory gap, I can't remember what happened.

I've been loving these guys for 4 months now. So I'm quite a noob at this thing they call "fangirling". I have just tagged myself as a fangirl after a month or so of my Arashi addiction.

So there, Nino baited me into the addiction. But who got me really hooked into the fandom? I can't really remember. I think it's Ohno Satoshi and Ninomiya Kazunari.

I'm planning to do quite a number of various things about the group. I'm still in the process of collecting stuff and planning so my first post might take some time before it can be posted.
