1 - Can you imagine Arashi appearing at your workplace/at your doorstep?
-- Actually, last night, I was imagining a scene where Arashi enters our office looking kinda lost. First, Nino and Jun enter. I think I felt how I'd feel if it was actually true. I could smell them. lol. I can picture them entering the office clearly. Nino looks around while Jun walks beside him. They both look a little lost. It's more obvious in Nino's face. Jun, on the other hand doesn't lose his smile. He walks in smiling. lol. Weird? hehe. weird.
2. Who is Arashi to you?
-- Arashi is one of the reasons why I think life is happy. (Right now). They make me look forward to weekends, to holidays, to paydays. They are my stress busters. I love them. But I'm not in love with them. Reality bites. Even though I'm hoping against all hopes to be at least blessed with the opportunity of being with one of them, it's really like almost impossible. I'm pretty aware with that. But it doesn't stop me from doing what I love doing: making sure to see them at least once a day. (lol).
Usually, I just type 'KAT-TUN' or 'Arashi' on the search box and click randomly once the search results come out. So last night, my string of clicking led me to this video entitled "girls talk about akame". I was like "Oh, okay." I was thinking it was something about Akanishi and Kame as separate individuals. I never thought that they'd actually talk about "THE AKAME" pair on tv. I thought Akame was only for us fans.
They were talking about "BL", actually which led to the well-known duo "Akame".
Here's how the interview went: (from how I understood it... ^..^)
Host: "You seem to be very fond of 'BL' and 'mousou = fantasy'. What does 'BL' mean?
Lady1: "ボイス ラブ やく で。 美しい 男性同士 の 恋愛”
"[BL means] 'Boys Love'. It's what we use to call [beautiful] love between men."
Host 2: (I didn't really get what he said because a girl 'eeeee-ed' in the background.)
I think it was:
"What do you do with that 'love'?"
Lady1: "妄想 するんです。”
"We imagine stuff from that."
Host2: "じゃ、 Kamenashiくん と Akanashiくん が。。。”
" So Kamenashi and Akanishi are..."
Ladies: (Altogether "kyaaaaaa!!!") (I can just imagine this interview in a dome with all of KAT-TUN's fans. Broken glass everywhere, fangirls fainting, fangirls having massive nosebleeds. lol. And I'd bet if I were there, I would have lost a pint or so of blood already...)
** I have to do this some other time ** Anyway, here's the link: Clicker
First of all, this somehow cleared my mind. I'm not the only one who's dellusional. hekhek. I know that fans scream for Johnny's pairings. But I wasn't aware that there's this thing that they call "boys love". To make it clearer, in that interview, the interviewees were Japanese ladies right? So I was like "o, so they too feel that way.". I was kinda relieved that it was somehow 'normal' as a fangirl to like 'boys love'. And they mentioned that they created fantasies from what they see. Not necessarily sexual fantasies, I think.
I dunno. I really can't explain what's going on in my mind.
Errr... Let me put it this way. The pairing that I adore most is Ohno plus Nino (Ohmiya). Before I knew Arashi, a man falling for another man somewhat creeps me out. (No offense meant. Promise. I'm not anti-homosexuality or bi-sexuality. I'm totally open to same sex relatonships. It's just that I'm not used to seeing two men being so touchy with each other.) And it's also not something that I usually see. The first time I saw this thing that they call "boys love" was when I started watching Japanese stuff.
So the first few times that I saw what they call "skinship = touching each other everywhere" between two men, I was like... "what the hell?" lol. Sorry but that's a little exaggerated. The men I'm used to seeing go only as far as hanging their arms over another's shoulder. I'm not used to seeing acts of affection towards other males.
Ohmiya shocked me a bit. What shocked me? Hmmmm.... First, the Ohmiya kiss... That was like shocking. And.... and they acted like they were doing it 'for their fans = fanservice'. I asked myself "If that's for the fans, does it mean the fans like it?"... Basing on how the fans screamed the moment Ohmiya stood in front of each other and motioned as if they were about to kiss each other (which after a few seconds they did) I then received the confirmation that the fans liked it.
It was weird. I would want Ohno or Nino for myself. But why does it feel that they are perfect for each other? And how did it start? Is it really a part of their culture? Coz it looks like it does.
Coz here, you'll be beaten to death by acting that way. Seriously.
And... and... I'd like to note this... Here, men tend to do what makes them 'manlier'... But the way I see Arashi and the other Japanese artists, for that matter,they tend to do what makes them less 'manlier'.... Like shave their brows (which Leah Dizon noticed and said when she guested in a Cartoon Kat-tun episode), wear make up, wear girls' clothes (Nino in some of his shoots), wear girls' sandals (in some of Arashi's photoshoots).
(Yeah, I really got them all jumbled up in my mind. lol)
Anyway, to sum it all up, this thing they call 'boys love' is somewhat new to me. But as shocking as it may sound, I appreciate it more than the normal thing (boy-girl love). And it's like I'm treating Ohno and Nino as a couple already. I can't even imagine them liking women. (Sad truth?)... So I guess, I'm into the 'mousou' thing the girls mentioned in the video. I'm already tangled up in the web of fantasies.
Whew... One long post... ^^,
First of all, this song accidentally stirred up some rumors about Ohno Satoshi going solo. From what I understood, what's different now is that the song will be released as a single performed by Kenta Yano (Ohno's character in his drama "Uta no Oniisan"), not as Ohno Satoshi's song. Those two are somewhat different because they will be releasing the song for the drama's sake and not for Ohno's solo debut's sake.
Enough with that.
I love the song... DOWN DOWN DOWN... hekhek. The melody's so catchy. The first time I listened to it, I felt like the song had potential. lol. Meaning it was one of those songs that I 'grew' to love. And I was right. After maybe listening to it a few more times, I have completely fallen in love with the song.
Which makes me wonder if I'm gonna get that single which will be released this March. I like Kenta Yano's song... I love it very much. But I don't find "Believe" as catchy. I think "Yatter-Man's" theme track sounds a bit ordinary. What do you think?
Well, I still have the whole Feb to think about it. ちゃんと かんがえる、 買うか 買わないか、 今 わからない。 (Wrong grammar... lol よく 考えてる。。。 買う か。。。 どう か。。。 まだ わかんない。。。 でも 買いました！！！ 本当 に うれしくなった ね！ それ は 一番目 買った アルバム だから。。。）
-- a little old. same age as Jun and Nino. ^^,

-- hell NO! Why would I?! I love Arashi to bits and at that time that I realized I could already be considered a fangirl, I embraced that truth willingly! ^w^
006: Well, are you addicted to them now?
-- okay. Yes. I admit I'm already addicted.
007: Current favorite debuted JE group?
008: Current least favorite debuted JE group?
-- I don't have one. I love all the debuted JE groups.
009: Favorite Junior?
-- Ikuta Toma. (He's still a junior, right?). But if he's not included, Kawai Fumito would be my next favorite.
010: Least favorite Junior?
-- I don't actually know them all so I don't really know if there's someone that I'd find not likable.
011: Favorite Junior group?
-- I'm a bit confused with this. Didn't HSJ debut already? Anyway, I only know Kis My Ft.2 and A.B.C.-Z and I don't even know the members that well so I don't have one.

021: Which Johnny is the biggest wuss?
-- Who is the biggest wuss? I can't think of one. I think all of them are either strong physically or personality wise.
022: . . . which Johnny is the next Johnny?

023: Which Johnny is the next big thing?
-- Next big thing to who? I think Arashi, KAT-TUN, NEWS are the next big thing then that's now's big thing. Now's next big thing would be... I think "Hey! Say! Jump!"

043: Best singer?
-- Tegomassu, Akanishi Jin, Kamenashi Kazuya, Kinki Kids
044: Worst singer?
-- in some songs, it's MatsuJun. But he's okay in most of their songs.

-- Arashi's "Happiness"
048: Least favorite PV?

057: . . . the worst?
-- no one.
058: If you were a JE costume designer, would you keep up the gaudy, sparkly tradition?
-- those costumes are JE talents trademarks. If they aren't wearing those feathery, sparkly, bright colored coats, it would feel like the people in front of me aren't Johnny's. I'll stick to the tradition and make them even look flashier.
059: The song, Kizuna. Better by Kame alone or better in a group?

075: . . . why?
-- They're of different categories... I think.
076: Do you like wFL (w-inds., FLAME, Lead)?
077: Which did you come in contact with first, PC or JE?
-- JE. I knew that Arashi was with JE and when I started researching about their history, I found out that after their debut, they signed a contract with Pony Canyon. But, I think in 2001, JE put up its own record label named "JStorm" especially for Arashi. Consequently, they moved to their mother company's record label.

-- i feel that it's rude.
082: . . . more than one at the same time?

084: Have you spent more than 5 consecutive hours watching JE stuff?
-- even more.
085: . . . do you find yourself watching your JE downloads?
086: . . . for more than 10 minutes at a time?
087: Have you ever gone over the daily 1GB SendSpace limit by just downloading JE?

-- i leave the computer on.
090: Does this survey make you feel like an obsessed freak?
-- not really.
091: Have you and a friend ever fought over whose favorite Johnny was better?

-- please let me be the only girl member of Arashi!!! lol
105: And finally, the gayest?
-- offensive. Gay as in happy, bubbly. Aiba n Taguchi.
Honestly, I like this drama better than 'Maou'. Ain't Yano so much like Ohno? Well, Ohno's not as aggressive and as dauntless as Yano but the same aura emanates from the two.
After Maou, I wished for a lighter drama for Ohno, one that was happier. That was like 4-5 months ago! And now, here it is!!!

84. What will you do seeing your favourite Johnny standing infront of your door?
-- I'll let him in. (And never let him out again... ever.)

98. If yes, who are the best couple of JE?
-- Arashi's pairings. Every possible combination! Ohmiya, Juntoshi, OhnoxSho, OhnoxAiba, Matsumiya, Sakumiya, Aini, ShoxJun, Sakuraiba, Junba.
99. If you are Johnny-san what would you change about JE?
-- products all over the globe!!! It's too expensive to order stuff and have them shipped to our homes right? I don't mind the concert ticket prices, even the goods prices. I just wish it was easier and cheaper to buy.
100. Do you like this survey? yeah.
Who’s your favorite idol in the Johnny’s Entertainment?
-- if you'd ask me who got me into this madness, it's no other than Arashi's own magician Ninomiya Kazunari.
Your favorite group?
-- top guys: 嵐
Your favorite dorama with JE idols in it?
-- Yamada Taro Monogatari (3 members of Arashi's in it. ^^, Ohno included. *even if he had like just a few seconds* and it's how I got to know our beloved Arashi.)
Your favorite pairing (or trio)?
-- Ohmiya SK. Juntoshi. Sakuraiba. Matsumiya. Aini. ShoxJun. OhnoxSho. Junba.
Your favorite show in which a JE band is the host?
-- Arashi's: Arashi no Shukudai-kun
-- KAT-TUN: Cartoon Kat-tun
Your favorite song?
-- I have a list of it here. I have a lot. ^^, --> MyList
Your favorite DVD?
-- I dunno. I'd go with Johnny's Sports Fest 2003, I guess. Coz there were a lot of revelations in it. lol. I mean I learned how great some Johnny's are at sports:
Nino (Arashi) & Kame (KAT-TUN) --> Baseball (umai!)
Tomoya Nagase & Matsuoka Masahiro (both from TOKIO), Sakurai Sho (Arashi) --> Soccer
Aiba Masaki (Arashi) --> 500-m dash.
The JE idol you want to meet the most?
-- Of course, all of Arashi! And if I could, I'll take them home. (^v^)
Who’s the sexiest?
-- Sakurai Sho. Ohno Satoshi. Kamenashi Kazuya. Akanishi Jin. Yamapi (daite daite daite senorita). Hot. (^O^)
Who’s the cutest?
-- Of course, the chibi Chinen Yuuri (HSJ). (^w^)
The one you know you will have a good conversation with? (or the one you seem to have the most in common).
-- I think the most interesting person to talk to or converse with is Sakurai Sho. I think he's got a lot up there (beneath his skull and pretty face).
-- I also want to talk to Jun coz I think he's like 20 years more than his actual age when he talks.
The one that is making you laugh the most?
-- I crack up everytime I see: Arashi fooling around or bullying one of their members. Nakai Masahiro makes me laugh. Matsuoka Masahiro too. Nakamaru (KAT-TUN).
The one you want to see crying?
-- Nino. The few times that I've seen him cry, I felt him. Whether it be in movies, dramas, or real life.
The one you won’t go “akjosngodg.sgtj^c” if you ever see him on the street?
-- Matsumoto Jun. He's like a royalty you know. I think my tension will rise to the nth degree when I see him.
The one you will do anything just to shake his hand or take a picture with?
-- Ohno Satoshi. I'd even want to kiss his cheeks.^^, And I want to know how his palms feel against mine. Skillful and bueatiful hands.
The group you have the more pictures on your computer?
- Arashi. Arashi. Arashi.
Your best memory of a Shounen Club episode?
-- There's no paricular episode. But I always love watching Johnny's rainbow vs... I don't know the other team. ^^, I enjoy their quizzes especially the "Guess the song" type. Kawai Fumito (A.B.C. Z) always leaves me in awe. ^.^ He's really great. And of course, I love it every time he impersonates his senpais. I hope he does the whole of Arashi next time.
You really want to be __s’ sister.
-- Sakurai Sho. I think he's a protective 'kuya'. Gorgeous, sexy, and intelligent. The type that all of my girl friends will adore. ^^, And I think I'd love to see him get all serious when it comes to me.
-- Matsumoto Jun. And like in his mini drama, he'll fall in love with me. Hekhek. Just kidding. But yeah I think he'd be a great ani.
-- Matsuoka Masahiro. This is what I get from watching "Yasuko to Kenji".
The group that have the best member ai?
-- ___ ___ ___ for dream!!! Have you watched the vid where Nino was kissing Ryo's bare shoulder and Ryo was like *eeeee~??!!*... But I was like *eeee~?!!!!* to Ryo more because that was nothing compared to what Arashi members do to each other. In short, I think Arashi's got the most membet ai.
The band who’s closer to their fans?
-- Queen of Pirates: KAT-TUN -- the concert where I think I saw the most and the warmest JE artist-fan interaction. Why? Taguchi even talked to 2 girls from the audience. Ueda had some sweets on him *and a battery* that he threw out and gave away - which I think is a bit personal and 'from the heart'.
Which JE idol have the greatest clothing taste?
-- Lemme see. Well, they all dress a little weird for me. But when they dress up, they do justice to the clothes: Sakurai Sho, Matsumoto Jun, Aiba Masaki (especially low rider jeans)
The boy you want to see in an An An photoshoot? (or any sexy photoshoot).
-- Ohno Satoshi. Sakurai Sho.
If you were in a restaurant, and Shige and Koyama show up, your first reaction is __
-- Koyama!!!! kyaaaaa!!! He's one of Johnny's @.@ Who's that with him?
Your first travel to Japan and you’re all excited! As you look at the other side of the street, you see Yamapi and Jin looking cool and anonymous. Your first reaction is__
-- Kyaaaa... Where's the camera?!
You’ve read on Internet that your favorite group may come to your country for a photoshoot soon. You__
-- no doubt... I'll be there!!
There is it! The pairing you’ve been shipping for like forever has finally come out, and it’s all over the Internet! Your first reaction is ___
-- OMG!!! Ohmiya, I thought so!!!! hehe... But I doubt it. This will never *as in never* happen.
You’re still in Japan and you’re walking on the street, just having fun by yourself. Then you bump into someone and fall on the ground. As you look up, you see that it’s the one and only Kamenashi. Your first reaction__
-- Am I dead? Why's there an angel in front of me?! lol. I'll stand up, brsuh the dust off my clothes, look at him and smile. Then I'll probably say "Hey! You're KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya right?! Wow, you look prettier in person. I know it's against Johnny's rules but can you give me just one chance to take a picture with you? Don't worry it won't leak out." an then leave after taking the picture. ^^,
Your trip is over, and you have to come back to your country. As you’re heading to your seat on the plane, you see Kamenashi and Yamapi sitting right next to your seat. Your first reaction__
-- is it my birthday today?
-- have I been that good, Santa?
-- Hi guys! mind if I take you home? lol.

I'm really looking forward to watching it this weekend. I don't really have time to watch on weekdays so despite my overwhelming desire to watch it NOW, it'll have to wait til Saturday. Besides, it makes me wanna look forward to this week's end.
Lately, things have been so different. Days were dragging beyond what is enjoyable. I spent, what seems to be, the longest hours in the office. And pushing myself off the bed has become such a tiring chore. Maybe I'm going through another one of my negative peaks. I really hate it when I feel this way. It's like nothing can make me happy anymore. And I don't want that. I just want to be happy.
Anyway, maybe it's because my laptop's been away from me for so long that I can't watch a lot of Arashi right now. lol.
Anyhoo.... just a random outsurge of emotions. ^^,
By the way, I watched Binbo Danshi last night. It was really funny. ^^, random random

Junnoski Taguchi [KAT-TUN]
Yuichi Nakamaru [KAT-TUN]
Ikuta Toma [still a junior? will he ever be launched in a group?]
Aiba is really a fast runner ne. And a good, actually very good, baseball player. He throws like he's got big buns on his arms (which, we all know he doesn't really have. ('w')) On top of that, Aiｂa has a different glow when he's standing on the batter's box. Batter box に たつ とき Aibaは 本当に かっこいく なる と 思えます。 (I think Aiba becomes cool and handsome when he stands on that box.)
Sakurai Sho sexy soccer. Seems that the letter 's' was meant for our dear Sho. ('v'). Hands down. He's a good soccer player. Seeing him kick and score makes me wanna melt.
From Ohno: "僕は ね、 サッカーを やきゅうも できないんです。” Along with the expression on his face, I found this statement very very funny. It was like he was admitting that "I can't play soccer nor baseball" with dignity.
Jun's 'fanboy' as I'd love to call him coz he loves to flatter our dear Matsumoto is A.B.C.-Z's KAWAI FUMITO. ^^,
Last night, I was already asleep. But I set my phone's alarm on 10:00 PM. It was the time I thought Shounen Club would air. I don't really know what happened but I woke up 9:15 and saw Maru's face on the screen. My pulse rate rose and I just instantly sat up to watch.
I now love the show.
Anyway, last night's highlights (IMO)
1 - Kawai Fumito does Jun again.
This guy really loves imitating Jun's dance. Actually they were in a game, 2 groups of three people each. I don't know the other contestants. Kawai's the only guy I know. But I'm in the process of knowing them you know. I just know that the other team had someone from kis-my-ft.2. The part where Kawai danced was with the "moshimo..." question... He answered "moshi mo... I danced the Matsu-Jun way and sang *someone else's name*'s way" and did just that. It was so hilarious I was laughing my a** off.
2 - Ja, itte kore. Sayonara janai yo ne. Mata iru kara. English interpretation: "Before I go, let me say this. This isn't goodbye, you know. We'll see each other again."
I knew, even with just a few keys or notes, it was Arashi's "Typhoon Generation". They made the two guys say Nino's line "ja, itte kore. Sayonara janai yo ne. Mata iru kara." They were both god but I think the original's still way better. ^^, *B-I-A-S-E-D*
3 - Johnny's Juniors' favorite songs.
Sadly, no one chose Arashi's songs. ^n^
at number 10 was "Beautiful Days". So I thought it was the only song in that countdown. But I thought to myself, it's impossible that "One Love" isn't in the countdown. My patience paid off. After 7 more songs, at number 2 wasone of HYD's theme songs - "One Love". But that wasn't the last one either. Because Arashi still claimed the top spot with Ohno's drama Maou's theme song - "Truth".
10 -- Beautiful Days
. as usual
. not listing non-Arashi
. songs ^,^
2 -- One Love
1 -- Truth
A few days back, I also watched almost all of the Johnny's countdowns that were held.
It's amazing how Johnny's started from V6, Kinki Kids, SMAP, TOKIO, plus the Johnny's Juniors (who didn't rally stand out during the earlier years of JE because they weren't as well known as their senpais.)
Watching them made me think that it's pretty hard to imagine how Arashi got to where they are now. I know those videos were 10 years ago already but seeing them dance as back up dancers for the other bigger artists was like seeing the now Johnny's Juniors backing them up.
It's quite funny to see them just in the "background". While now, the spotlight's on them. They are the ones being backed up. They already host countdowns.
Imagine how popular the Juniors now will be in the future.
There's still a lot from the link up there, just quoting some of my favorites.
- he wears a yellow underwear, with 100,000,000 yen bills which he got from Ohno
- he prefers girls who wear jeans and sneakers. (I think what people want is a reflection of who they are? I mean if he likes simple girls then he's probably just a simple person -- well, that's just my opinion and I hope it's true)
- I don't care about the price. (Well, that's also a given fact ne? I think Jun and Nino are complete opposites when it comes to dressing up. As Jun said, he doesn't care how much an article of clothing costs but Nino values money over clother or anything else for that matter. lol. And I think for Jun, it's not just how the clothes fit but they should also look nice. While Nino doesn't really care how he looks with the clothes on as long as they're comfie. Im pretty much like Nino. I also don't care how the clothes look on me as long as I'm free to move, walk, or do whatever.)
- As for winter clothes, I have hesitations when shopping for some. They're quite expensive.
(It seems that Nino's not the only stingy person in Arashi. ^^,)
I don't know how I really started liking the pairing but my memory can only go as far as the Ohmiya kiss they did while doing an "Ohmiya" skit in one of their concerts. When I watched the fancam of this moment, I held my breath and contained the scream that wanted to escape my mouth.
From that moment on, I wanted more of the pairing until I was sucked deeper into the fandom. So I guess I owe my addiction to all the fanvids I've watched -- the videos that almost convinced me that "Ohmiya" was a single entity and which almost made me forget that Ohno and Nino were different entities. lol, to all the interviews I've read boasting of their love (I don't care if it's an on-the-record, on-screen, for-the-fans-only kind of thing. What matters is that these two definitely have chemistry.)
I'm looking forward to more Ohmiya. ^^,

That's about it for now. Anyway, if ever I hear something real good I'm going to put it here right away.
Kamenashi Kazuya desu!!! Sorry but I really do love the "kono chiisana machi de, kono toki wo ikite" part of KAT-TUN's song "Bokura no Machi de". I know it's a little old but after watching "Tatta Hitotsu no Koi" starred by Kazuya, I can't just get enough of the guy. And his voice is really soothing ne. How should I put it? His voice is cool... When he sings, it's like all the notes coming out of his mouth, throat, vocal chords are all pleasing to the ears.
Matsuoka Masahiro!!! It's been quite some time since I watched "Yasuko to Kenji" and "Tengoku ni Ichiban Chikai Otoko" but I still like Matsuoka Masahiro. Usually I forget about them once I move on to other dramas but his face just keeps on popping out everywhere. Especially when I got to watch the previous Johnny's countdowns. Being one of the oldest Johnny's talents, I think TOKIO's been present since the very first countdown to the last. So everytime I see TOKIO, no fail, his face stands out. lol. But watching him in the other Johnny's sports events made me look up to him more coz it's only now that I know that he's such a fast runner.
For this week, I think I have 2 Johnny's of the week. The second would be Aiba Masaki!!! As I've said, I've been watching the previous Johnny's sports events. I don't really care if a guy can do sports or not. I don't require it as a criteria for me to like someone. But being good at something impresses me. The last Johnny's sports event that I watched already had Arashi in it. But they were still amongst the Juniors. They weren't given a grand entrance yet. It was still TOKIO, KINKI KIDS, and V6 who were in convertibles while being introduced. Anyhoo, during the 500-meter dash, I saw that Aiba's raelly quite a sprinter. He's good. He's fast. ^^, He's impressive. ^^,
Sakurai Sho desu!
I discovered a lot of stuff about Arashi after watching the recent Johnny's sports fests. I think the best thing that I learned is, Sho's a really great soccer player. I think it's pretty cool. (^v^)
Akanishi Jin desu!
I have 2 again for this week. Akanishi because he's also really good at soccer. (^v^) If Sho and Jin were soccer players, I think they won't stand out. But they're not soccer players. They are actors/singers/dancers/artists...
I think for this week, it's still Akanishi Jin. I know a lot of people aren't fond of him. Yes he's a bit "arrogant"-looking. But he does seem to be a nice guy. Well, I don't really know him personally but I think he's just misunderstood. I mean the guy is confident with himself. He knows that he's gorgeous. Somehow, I'm not annoyed that he acts as if he knows that a lot of people are screaming for him.
Anyway, here's what got me into liking Akanishi:
Akanishi screams... but why? If you're an Akanishi fan, I bet you know. ^..^
Akanishi screams again... but why? *Kame's a spoiled brat. ^..^ Maru's a good ani.
Akanishi shouts 'saiaku' this time I wonder how he feels when people do that to him. I think 'saiaku = mean'. So Jin shouts 'you're so mean' to the host. lol.
If I ever skipped a week, it doesn't matter. For the past weeks, I'm back to feeding my Arashi cravings. So for this week, I have two favorite JEs, both from the same band (~.~) Arashi!!!
So for this week, I think I fell in love with Ohno Satoshi and Ninomiya Kazunari again. These two are my top favorites among all of JE artists. But I also have the 3 following behind them. It's just when I have to choose my real favorite, I'd say Nino first then Ohno. I can't express how much I love them. I big love them. lol. hontou no ai? daisuki? mecha mecha na ai? lol. nan to iu, wakaranai. demo, jitsu wa, sono futari wo totemo totemo rabu desu. ^^,
This week, I stll have Ninomiya Kazunari as my Johnny's of the week. Hmmmm... Ohno too. I love them both. Really. It's a bit difficult to love just one from Arashi. (So I guess I have to say that I love them all right now. As in really...) Anyway, I wasn't able to watch any new Arashi show lately, except for the Arashi no Shukudaikun episode with Nagase. And I really love Nino's hair. He looks so young and healthy lately. I mean while Ryuzei no Kizuna was running, I think Nino looked so tired. The dark circles under his eyes were standing out and he looked rather tired and stressed out. But now, his skin looks better, his hair suits him just right...
O okay so it's Arashi for this week. And I can't wait for my "Believe/ Kumori Nochi Kaisei" to arrive. I'll have it on the 10th of March (yeah, quite delayed and a little more expensive than buying it straight from the record bar instead so I hope the record bars here would already sell some JE goods!!!). That'll mark my year old addiction for Arashi. ^^, yatta!!! I'm already a year old fangirl. Well I can't compare to those who have been supporting Arashi since the group started (hands down to them) but I'm still proud. It's quite an achievement for me on my part because I really find it hard sticking to a hobby. Well, I know I'm going to get tired of this or maybe I'll eventually let go of this but so far, this is the longest staanding hobby I've had. ^^,
The results: (I don't know how the hell I came up with this... their faces didn't pop out that much but I ended up with, I think the best results per group. Nino, Jun, Aiba, Sho, and Ohno all should be number 1.)
took another stab at it... this is more like it.^^,
(Hey! Say! JUMP)
(Hey! Say! JUMP)
I hope what I'm saying is right. ^^, lolz...
Anyway, I just happened to stumble upon this post... About Nino's father. Click here for the post. A download link was provided by those who left comments.
While I was watching, I was also crying. But during the first part showing Nino in tears I was like "a, he doesn't look like he's crying..." but towards the end, with a blown up view of him, I was heartbroken. His eyes were swollen and were still teary even after the vtr had already stopped.
