It’s almost his day... Before, it’s 24hs TV day!  

August really flew to me! O.O My work overload is to blame for that… u.u  At least, I was able to keep following the boys activities and it sure was a month full of 24hs TV related activities! So, before the actual 24hs TV begins, let’s catch up with what happened on Jun-kun’s month!


During the whole month, there were several TV Shows related to 24hs TV – pre-shows, countdows, music shows, CMs and so on… At each show, they let us know a little more about what is to come! This week each of the boys appeared on NTV’s news shows to promote 24hs TV and, last Thursday, Jun-kun appeared at Zip, Pon and News Every!

So far, we could learn that Jun-kun will conduct a brass band from the affected areas as the maestro; Riida will follow a girl who lost her mother at the earthquake pursuing her dream of being a judo champion; Aiba-chan will follow a family who fights with a disease and he also supported a handicapped girl who will climb a mountain (he made her a wrist band, how adorable can he be?); Nino will follow a mother and her daughter with a past of child abuse; finally, Sho-chan will talk about a girl who died at the earthquake and whose dream was to be on Nadeshiko Japan, he will play soccer with her teammates and Sawa-san, treasuring her memory. The boys also visited several places at the affected areas and interacted mainly with the elderly and the children!



Still on promoting 24hs TV, each of the boys went to NTV’s variety shows and Jun-kun went to Tore last Monday! It was so fun and trilling at the same time! Of course, he did really well! *proud fangirl* And he was so gorgeous (as always), especially with his hair style looking like the one of his Kindaichi days! *.*








Finally, as five, the boys were on Ichiban Song Show last Wednesday, again to promote 24hs TV! They talked about their memories of the last two 24hs TV they hosted and Jun-kun chose the moment Nino read his letter to the members as the memory that left a huge impression on him! ^.^ Oshima-san was there too and, again, she showed us how dedicated she is as Jun-kun’s fangirl, it was really fun! XD Unfortunately, the mystery about this year’s letter keeps without answer… On the musical side, the boys performed a medley of Arashi, Happiness and Face Down and they performed Akashi for the first time, they were really gorgeous! *.*


Since this month is all about 24hs TV, Nissan will air new CMs during the special show to stimulate people to donate since they will give secret passwords on the CMs and, with the passwords, it’s possible to access Nissan site and its secrets contents and, doing that, an automatic donation of 10 yen to 24hs TV will happen! ^.^ The CMs will feature the boys talking about their dreams to the future – Jun-kun wants to hold a concert in the moon! *.*


Talking about their regular TV Shows, I must say I am puzzled… Because, for me, they keep being fun! But the ratings are not as good as they used to be which makes me sad and worried… u.u

Anyway, VS Arashi is always so much fun in my opinion, the highlights of the last three shows were Jun-kun as the MDA, Riida knowing Jun-kun’s underwear color and talking about it on national television (my Juntoshi heart) and the boys supporting high school teams on rolling coin tower contest – it was fun and touching to watch all the teams and their effort! ^.^



On HnA, we had Matsumiya sharing a house and receiving Perfume as guest – it was such a precious show, full of epic moments, super fun! ^.^ They danced, watched DVDs, made onigiris and they received a visit of mascots from Hiroshima – Jun-kun was certainly happy because of that and showed us his adorable chibi side! ^.~









Because he sure likes mascots since forever! XD



Finally, on Shiyagare, we had the five of them dressed as mafia guys and a special “scene” with Matsumiya and Juntoshi, acting as the boss (first Nino, then, Riida) and the one who serves him (Jun-kun)! ^.^ On the last one, the guests were Taka and Toshi and Hokuto family, all supporters of 24hs TV!





Tomorrow (today in Japan), it is finally 24hs TV! I am prepared to cry! XDDD

To end this post, a little personal story. Last Saturday, me and my RL friend Ci-chan (blind_maiden) decided to try the famous Jun-kun’s special toast – the one with margarine, honey and mayonnaise! We were not sure of how it would taste since it is not a common mix but, to our surprise, it was really yummy! We even had another go! XD Each of the ingredients alone on the bread has a “heavier” feeling to the stomach, but, when they are mixed, it becomes something “lighter” and well balanced! I really liked it! Thanks, Jun-kun! ^.~

That’s it for now… Next, Jun-kun’s b-day! \o/

I know I haven’t been too much active on LJ and that I need to reply some messages, but, please, bear with me in this complicated time of my life at work… I will get back to you all as soon as I can! ^.^

Thanks in advance for the ones who comment! ^.^

I am really happy to know that Jun-kun is gaining our admiration little by little, he really is an great person and there is more to him than he lets show! ^.^
He did an amazing job with the brass band in 24hs TV, it was really touching and it made me proud of being his fan! I will post about it later, but it sure was a great job! ^.^
I am sure a good quality file of his performance will be share on the communities soon! ^.^

I am glad to know that and I bet Jun-kun would be too! ^.^

Sah-chan: jundogbittingsesquerdo on August 28th, 2012 11:50 am (UTC)
Yes, that would be amazing! But I really hope he can feel how much he is loved in their concerts and by the participation of international fandom in M5 Special and other things that allow opened voting, also, they know overseas fans buy their stuff! ^.^ So, I really hope he can feel how much he is loved! ^.^
I must confess that, currently, I just follow Arashi, my free time is smaller and they take everything… I want to watch animes and other dramas but I can’t find time… At least, I keep reading some mangas! ^.^
bob lemonboblemon on August 25th, 2012 11:18 am (UTC)
Lots of 24H going on right now! I'm watching it! :D

By the way, that comment from Ohno about watching Jun on VSArashi... I was laughing so hard and it made my Juntoshi fangirl squeal.
Sah-chan: juntoshibwbitesesquerdo on August 27th, 2012 05:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your comment! ^.^ I hope you enjoyed 24hs TV, it had so many touching moments and I still didn’t watch everything!
Riida is the only one who can talk about the underwear of his lover on national television! XDDD Juntoshi is♥!
bob lemonboblemon on August 28th, 2012 08:24 am (UTC)
I missed a lot of it (because I couldn't stay awake the whole time) but cat taped it all, so I can watch the parts I missed. I have to admit I was crying a lot while I was watching... Cat was teasing me.

Both of their faces in that situation were so wonderful! XD
Sah-chan: juntoshitouchedsesquerdo on August 28th, 2012 11:51 am (UTC)
Well, it really is tiring to follow everything since it is more than 24hs TV Show, but, if you recorded it, you can watch it slowly like I will have to do! ^.^
Well, if it is any consolation, I have cried at several parts that I have already watched! Especially Jun-kun’s conduction, it was amazing and I am not being biased since the members were moved like me, Riida and Nino cried according to the audiences! XD
So, yes, we are not the only ones crying! XDDD
I hope you had a good day at work, take care! ^.^
bob lemonboblemon on August 28th, 2012 01:09 pm (UTC)
Jun can get really emotional, so when he started tearing up I couldn't help but cry. He really tried his best to support them. I especially cried at parts that had to do with the tsunami victims because that hit closer to home than stories about rare sicknesses and things.

And of course Hattori who cries all the time, haha. ^__^ At least I don't have to feel bad if he's crying too.
Sah-chan: juntoshipurpleaaasesquerdo on August 28th, 2012 07:21 pm (UTC)
In my case, I started crying before Jun-kun did and, when he tried not to cry, I felt like hugging him or asking Riida to do it for me! XD I was touched not only because Jun-kun worked so hard, but especially because he was able to create a bond with all the students and help them to transmit the feelings they wanted, the students’ letter made me cry even more! XD And he even received more letters afterwards, they create a really special relationship! ^.^ I am so proud of Jun-kun! *.* Well, of all of them! ^.^
I imagined watching the student’s stories made you think about what you lived where you were before, right? So many hard moments… u.u
OMG! Hattori-san sure cries easily, so, yes, he allows me not to feel bad about crying! XDDD
PS: I received your message and read it (so many interesting stories that I had to read in the middle of my work XD), I will reply as soon as I have time ok? As you know, things are still hectic… Good luck with your classes! ^.^
bob lemon: together juntoshiboblemon on August 29th, 2012 08:01 am (UTC)
Yes, I think he created a great relationship with those kids. I really think the boys get a lot of great experiences like that, and they have the power to make a different.

Although it did make me think about where I live, my area was pretty lucky. It's more that I feel like we got easily when so many other people struggled with the tsunami, so it gets me worked up.

Please take your time with replying. It was really long! ^__^
Sah-chan: juntoshicolosesquerdo on August 29th, 2012 08:13 pm (UTC)
He did, didn’t he?! ^.^ Yes, they always receive chances like this one and I think they embrace them wholeheartedly! We could notice how happy they were of hosting 24hs TV again when they announced it on January, and I think they were happy because they knew they would be able to live situations like this one and to make a real difference! ^.^
That’s why we can just love them, right?! ^.~
Oh, I understand… But, well, it’s a good thing that your area was less affected, right? Although it is normal that you can feel more about the ones that were affected since it could have been yours… It’s better stop thinking about it and doing what we can to help who needs, right?! ^.^
Yes, it was long, but really interesting! ^.^ And I want to reply soon… I will try to do it tomorrow because today I have to prepare Jun-kun’s B-day post! ^.~
I hope you are having a nice week, take care! ^.^

\o/ You did it!
Hi!! \o/ Oh! You made it!! I’m so happy you manage to post!! ^3^/
And I’m here too, which is great \o/! : )
So, basically, August is in a weird chaos (you know what a mean) and we are like fishes being baited by Arashi’s 24hTV promos!!! I mean, I didn’t have time to look at everything yet, but there is SO MANY THINGS! THEY ARE WORKING SO MUCH! (yes in capslock because I’m almost screaming here!!) Thank God you help me with your posts! *hugs*
Now, I really want to see each corner of 24hTV, but I will need time – well, we’ll need time, ne?
my tissues are prepared!
>.< It’s really interesting how almost everything is related to this show now… I mean they need to promote, ne? … Perhaps they will have something online, like a way to donate, or give opinion… Nah, I’m dreaming, they don’t care about non-Japanese fans… (I’m still pissed!)
Oh! And I need Jun’s Tore!! “Kindaichi solving Tore’s puzzles” episode! XDD
Ichiban Song Show is different from others? I mean Oshima was there … And this lady has my respect forever! You can see she doesn’t want to be to “intense” every time she appears, but she can hide her love for Jun! I love her!
Hum, about their TV Shows: For me they are always interesting. But when they interact with people I like or with children/elderly … my heart melts in happiness! Seriously! Plus , it gives new Arashi+things OTP: Jun with Mascotes! I have all with glasses and animals, Ohno and fish roads, Sho and suits, Aiba and his Masaki.com hat, Nino and his DS and had Jun with books… Now I have another \o/ - I have to do a list…
Oh, Jun’s toast! We need to eat it with white bread! I gonna buy it and we are going to eat again! What do you think? Can we?
I hope we can be watch a lot of things ^^ And that your month ends more calmly…
Next I s Jun’s post , ne? I hope I can give him what I’m intending to do ;)
See you soon! (really soon XD)
Bye! And thanks again for post Arashi news, it helps a lot and makes me happy ^^

PS: taking every (chibi-Jun) gif hehehe

Re: \o/ You did it!
Yay! \o/ I did it! And you did it too! \o/ It’s so nice to see you commenting here again, Yama-chan! ♥ I missed you… u.u
And I already have a lot of files from 24hs TV to watch with you, especially Jun-kun’s special task, you will feel so proud of him, it was amazing! *.* They were all amazing! ^.^ And you will cry! XD We will! ^.~
Actually, it seems we could have donated to 24hs TV, but, well, we can do it next time! ^.^
Bring your pen-drive and I will give you TORE! Jun-kun is always gorgeous as Kindaichi! ^.~
Yes, ichiban song show is different from MS and others shows, Arashi was there talking a lot of time, it is something like Hey!x3, but it was longer! ^.^
You need to give your live to VS Arashi with high school students, it was the best… with the worst rating! u.u I will never understand Japanese audience…
Yay, let’s eat the bread again, with the white bread! It’s a deal ok? ^.~
Finally, thanks for the links, Chibi Jun-kun is always welcomed! ^.^
Take care, Yama-chan, hope to see again here on my LJ on Thursday! ^.~ And thanks for your comment! ^.^

august was/is a busy month indeed!
And i was kinda busy too so i didn't watch everything, only the epic ones lol

Right now, i'm trying to cach up on all 24htv activities
and I just love that obachan moment! Jun-kun was so delighted lmao!!

And can I say that I don't know how this man do but he's getting more getting more and more gorgeaous and I didn't think it was something possible lol
marichamaricha74 on August 25th, 2012 05:21 pm (UTC)
PS :
what! you really did the toast receipe! and it was not heavy!
i'm still doubting but you just convince me of trying lol
Sah-chan: junangelsesquerdo on August 27th, 2012 06:00 pm (UTC)
Mari-chan! \o/
Thanks for your comment! ^.^ It seems August was complicated to all of us, right?
I hope we both manage to catch up with everything! ^.^ Jun-kun’s dart trip was super fun! But his special task, he conducting the brass band, OMG, I cried a lot, I am so proud of him, the whole segment was beautiful! Our beloved Jun-kun is not only getting more handsome at each day but more endearing too! ♥
Yes, I tried the toast together with Ci-chan and we both liked it a lot and we want to have it again! XD So, yes, I think you should give it a try, our Jun-kun has a good taste! ^.~
I know I owe you some replies, I will try to reply everything during the week ok? ^.~
Take care, Mari-chan! ^.^
marichamaricha74 on August 27th, 2012 08:59 pm (UTC)
ne! Don't you feel like a proud being for loving such a wonderful man!
He was so amazing!
The liveliness of his performance was so endearing so much that even the professional conductor was impressed

He must have rehearse like a mad men
And the bond he built with the band was the best
From the various sources, you could sense that they were really at ease and they got to see his vulnerable side which I think made them so close to him

And the way he bucked up and did everything not to cry was so touching!
I just wanted to hug him and saying to him how great he had been

Hountouni, J!
Thy greatness is a bliss to my heart!
Sah-chan: juniloveyousesquerdo on August 28th, 2012 01:00 am (UTC)
That’s exactly how I feel – extremely proud of being his fan, he is an amazing person! I was impressed not only by his hard work, since we already know how stoic he is, but by his ability of connecting his soul with the student’s soul, the way the students trusted him and the way he did the conduction trying to send them reassuring feelings to them, trying to be a safe spot for them and helping to express what they needed, it was amazing, being words!
I just want to be there and say to him – “it’s ok to cry, you did a wonderful work, be proud of yourself!”! ^.^
Our ichiban is such a gentle soul, let’s give him all our love neh?! ^.^
Kirie: juntoshikiriezero on August 25th, 2012 10:49 pm (UTC)
owww, sounds like you had a really hard month :( I hope the over-work ends soon! it's temporary, right? I hope you can be back to normality soon ^^

well, that egiptian-like game show looks so fun! *-*
everybody is crazy with the 24h show right now but I'm not XD there are so many promotional clips out there! @.@ wouldn't it be better to just actually watch the show instead of watching tons of previews? XD I'll just wait for subbed parts so I can watch it understanding all they say :P
by the way, the donations are for what cause? O.o? I know it's "charity" but charity is a laaaaaarge concept, there are many different charity causes... for example, here we have a Teletón once a year where all national channels joins for the show and the money is specifically for rehabilitation of disabled people, nothing else... I'm wondering how 24h show works... (ours is 27 hours long but it always last like 30 hours XD)

well, thanks for the update post and ganbatte! fighto RL! ^x^/
Sah-chan: juntoshireadingbedsesquerdo on August 27th, 2012 06:01 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, Kirei-san! ^.^ And thanks for your good wishes, I really need good vibes right now… Actually, my situation became a little more complicated, I even wanted to quit my job, but I will think carefully during my vacations on September, it was a really hard month… Thanks, anyway! ^.^
Yes, I think you will like Tore, you should check it if someone subs it! By the way, there was one with Riida last year! ^.~
About 24hs TV, you can read about it here, it has all the information and in English - http://www.ntv.co.jp/24h/contents/english.html . They donate to several causes, it is interesting! ^.^
Actually, we could see some things on the pre-shows that we couldn’t see on the actual show, that’s why they were interesting! But, in the end, what really matter was on the show! I hope someone will sub it because it was amazing and really touching, I have seen some parts and I recommend it for you when it is subbed! ^.^
I hope you are fine, Kirie-san, take care! ^.^
Kirie: juntoshikiriezero on August 28th, 2012 11:35 pm (UTC)
sounds like you had a really bad time :s I wish I could give you an advice but this year I changed my status from "student" to "neet looking for a new path" ^^U I bet it's a year to make changes, right? the only thing I can say is that health and happiness are always first! ^.^/ it's no use to have a well paid job if you're too sick to enjoy it u.u
but your vacations are near!!! enjoy them to the fullest, rest a lot and when you go back to work your mind will be clearer to think ;) *hugs*

I didn't know that pre-shows had cut scenes! O.O but still... too much to download ^^U and thanks for the link! that makes it clearer... it's different than my country's telethon ^.^

well, I send you tons of hugs and good vibes! <3
Sah-chan: juntoshibwcouplesesquerdo on August 29th, 2012 12:45 am (UTC)
*hugs Kirie-san*
Thank you for your support and for your kind words, Kirie-san! ^.^ Really, it means a lot to me! ^.^
Yes, 2012 is a year of changes… Good luck for you too in finding your own path! Let’s both ganbatte neh?! ^.^
Not exactly cut-scenes, but some scenes that were not on the final thing, also it has their commentaries and so on, but, yes, there is a lot to download… The good thing is that there are already subbed files of 24hs TV! ^.^
Our telethon is different from theirs too and I find 24hs TV proposal interesting! ^.^
Take care, Kirie-san and thanks again! ^.^ *feeling the good vibes and sending them back with a lot of hugs*

Heya Sah-chan! ^o^ I'm really sorry to hear that August has been a hectic month for you, I think it's been complicated for many of us...u.u. I hope that your vacation will ease things and let you refresh your mind/soul. ^.^ If you believe that your current position is not right for you, I support you fully on your decision. ^^

I need to catch up on so many Arashi activities and being such a bad fangirl. LOL I appreciate this post and always your updates on the boys. ^^ Love all of the smiley, gorgeous Jun-kun gifs and saved most of them. XD Hopefully the subs will be out soon, I cannot wait to see the touching and heartwarming moments.

I adore that old 24HR TV gif with Matsumiya, so much love there. XXD

Hehe..I had forgotten about that Jun-kun’s special toast and will give that a try. :) Hopefully, I don't get addict to it, love my carbohydrates, but can't have too much, ne?! LOL
Sah-chan: juntoshifireworkssesquerdo on August 28th, 2012 12:58 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, Fiona-chan! ^.^ Also, thank you so much for your support and nice words! I hope August will end better a less busy for both of us! ^.^
24hs TV was indeed really touching and Jun-kun was amazing, you will love his performance with the brass band, I cried a lot watching it! I hope you can watch everything soon! ^.^
OMG! I really liked Jun-kun’s toast and I recommend it! If you ever try it, let me know what you think! ^.^
Thanks again for dropping by and good luck with everything in this busy time of your life! ^.^
