September – Arashi’s month! Vacations and Absence Notice!  

It’s September! It’s the month of Arashi’s Anniversary! To make it even better, it’s the month of my vacations! \o/

After 24hs TV, the boys are now busy rehearsing for Arafes and creating the new concert that will happen on the 20th and 21st! I am really curious about the concept for this concert not only because I want to know which songs were chosen but also because it will be just the five of them! I can’t wait for the reports! ^.^ By the way, I think I forgot to mention on last post that they will release a new compilation album on the same day of Arafes with their couplings songs called UraAraMania (or something like that XD)!

Since they are all busy with Arafes, there isn’t much to talk about individual activities… Riida’s documentary about Disney has already been recorded and aired and it will be aired again on October, but with one more hour. Aiba-chan has already recorded a special show for FTV about children who are entering the entertainment industry that will be aired on the 20th. Finally, Jun-kun will be the MC for Number 01 Show Time again, the show will air on the 29th and he will record it on the 17th.

Besides that, I think they are all focused on Arafes! There was even a message on J-Net about Arafes:

Writing about what has already happened, I guess the end of August was all about 24hs TV! And it was amazing, a really good show! I still couldn’t watch the whole thing, but I watched several parts, including all the parts with the boys! All except Nino’s special drama because I want to watch it with my friend to have someone to cry with me! XDD

They performed Kansha Kangeki Ame Arashi, Happines, Love Rainbow, Hatenai Sora and a Special Medley with Believe, Love so Sweet, A-RA-SHI, Monster and One Love! Everything was great but the medley was perfect! *.* The highlight, for me, were the little boys representing the five of them when children that read their dreams of their childhood days – Riida wanted to be a baker (because he likes the smell of bread XD), Jun-kun wanted to be a baseball player and so did Nino, Aiba-chan wanted to be the president of a company (and have a cool beard XDD) and Sho-chan wanted to be a musician! Those five cute little boys returned when they sang One Love, it was really adorable!






Before Hatenai Sora was performed, the five of them read letters they wrote to their future selves, talking about what they expect for the future; Riida also wrote about Arashi’s future, expecting the five of them to keep being together and facing everything! It was touching and I guess Riida’s words express all fangirl’s wishes for the five of them! ^.^


Each of them made special trips to different locations to talk about 24hs TV’s theme (future - Mirai) with the local people asking them what they expect for the future – the so called “Darts Trip”. It was really fun to watch the five of them, especially when they were not recognized or when they were mistaken for another member! XD Jun-kun’s one had nice old ladies, a really nice fisherman that gave him food XD, two young ladies and cute kids who preferred Nino over him! XDD







Their special tasks were all touching and I guess I cried watching all of them! XD Especially in Aiba-chan’s moving zoo one, that girl was so cute and so was Aiba-chan… Also, when they found the Judo girl’s mother’s cel phone on Riida’s one, when they were talking about the past of the mother and her daughter on Nino’s one and when the mother was talking about her deceased daughter on Sho-chan’s one… Also, it was a pity that that girl to whom Aiba-chan made the wristband couldn’t climb the mountain until the end due to the bad weather; that the girl Riida supported couldn’t win the Judo championship and that the huge kites Jun-kun supported to be made couldn’t fly perfectly…

Although I cried a lot in several parts, Jun-kun’s task was the one that touched me the most… I was already teary when the students were talking about how it was on the day of the tsunami, then, I started to cry when Jun-kun was talking with each student and cried even more on the story of the girl who lost her mother and the letter she wrote to her father thanking him for taking care of her and her sister like their mother used to do… Then, the performance came and it was so amazing and touching! They all worked so hard, including Jun-kun who rehearsed until late hours and who went to rehearse with the students once a week, he created an unique bound with all the students and we could feel that on the letter they wrote to Jun-kun and on the backstage after the performance! It was incredibly touching! And I felt so proud of Jun-kun! Although, I wish he would have allowed his tears to fall, because he was holding them up with all his might, so adorable! Yes, I am biased, but Jun-kun’s performance touched so many people that it was reported by the media the very next day and it even made Nino and Riida cry(according to the reports and hidden footage).









Here are some moments of the five of them during the show, including Aiba-chan’s task at Shimura Zoo, Nino’s performance with The Alfee (he was so surprised and he did so great) and Riida’s dancing special part, in which he performed Michael Jackson songs! Since I love MJ and Bad was my very first record, it had to be on my post! XD Also, because of the little Juntoshi moment since Jun-kun came back early from back stage to watch his beloved Riida dancing his idol songs! ^.~ By the way, I recommend to watch the whole dance segment because it is really entertaining!  









On the next day, the entertainment news showed us some back stage scenes, check them out!

During the 24hs TV, there were a Shiyagare and a Shabekuri 007 special, live, with Arashi together with the comedians and other special guests! They played games and pranks, remembered awkward moments of each member and made rankings which the results were Nino is the one who doesn’t like to be alone, Aiba-chan is the one who cries easily, Jun-kun is the one who doesn’t like to lose, Riida is the most cool and Sho-chan is the perfect one.




Finally, during the 24hs TV, the special Nissan CMs with the secret password were aired and they were really beautiful as expected since the boys were talking about dreams! I would certainly like watching an Arashi’s concert on the Moon!

I guess that’s all about 24hs TV… It was really special, wasn’t it?

Talking about their regular shows, there was no VS Arashi on Jun-kun’s B-day, so there was just this last week one with the Olympic’s medalists! It was quite fun and quite interesting to notice that only Matsumiya can find Riida on the crowd in 10 seconds! ^.~


There were two HnA with Jun-kun – one with Aiba-chan and Ayase Haruka and one with Sho-chan and Fukiishi Kazue, both were really fun! ^.^










Finally, on this last week’s Shiyagare, we also had Olimpic’s medalists teaching Arashi how to “play” fencing! The highlight, for me, of course, was Riida’s love confession to Jun-kun and both playing against each other! XD That and Aiba-chan being adorable! XD Not only that, but on the Third Encounter Corner, Jun-kun met Milla Jovovich to learn how to do action scenes! She seems nice with him and he was amazed being the fanboy of international stars as he is! XD Also, on the previous Shiyagare, we had a Third Encounter Special together with the highlights of 24hs TV!





To finish this post, as I mentioned on the title of the post, I will be on vacations from work this month and I will be travelling from tomorrow onwards until the end of the month (actually, I will travel, come back and travel again), so I won’t be around much during this month, since I don’t know how my internet connection will be at the hotels and, even if I have a good connection, I won’t be in front of my computer all the time… I will be commenting less and I will leave long messages’ replies to when I get back ok? It’s not as I talk to so many people here, but I thought I should let this notice in case someone notes my absence…

And, before I go, since it is my LJ, I think I can talk about my beloved OTP a little! XD Thanks to boblemon, now, I have several Juntoshi’s doujinshi and I am in love with them! *.* How could I not be considering I love mangas and Juntoshi?! So, I took a picture of some of them (yes, there are more) to share here, the art is so beautiful! 

Also, together with the doujinshi I bought from her, boblemon sent me a cute little note with a Juntoshi fanart and since I loved it so much I had to post it here (I really hope you don’t mind):

To really finish this post, some Juntoshi’s gifs just because I feel like posting them! XD



This post turned out huge! I don’t know who will be patient to read it all, so thanks in advance for the ones who comment! ^.^

Credits: gifs and pictures from tumblr and weibo, I didn’t make any of them, they are not mine.

Thanks for your comment! ^.^ Sorry for the late reply, I was travelling and with a not so good internet connection… Besides that community, there are other two raw communities where you can get Arashi’s raw files - http://arashi-no-jidai.livejournal.com/ and http://kazu-no-himitsu.livejournal.com/ , but the membership is moderated.

You did it!!
O.O You made your post!!!! \o/ \o/ \o/

I knew you would manage to post today!
So many gifs! They all, so wonderful!

Well, it's amazing how much they work in less than a month, ne?
About Arafes: I'm curious, but I'm also worried... I think they are working too much! >.< But I think it's going to be fun! ... and I be here...

Anyway, 24hTV!! I think I want to watch the whole show! I only watched their drat trips and Jun's task. I felt like crying again while reading your post and seeing the gifs (specially those with Jun almost crying!).
He was amazing!! I love when people see how hardworking he is and how amazing he can be!!

I guess I'll cry again while watching the other's task too... Well, (and, yes! We'll watch Nino's drama together!). Their performances were amazing too! The part the little kids are with then is super duper cute!! They all look alike in some way!

Hum... you like MJ, ne? XDDDDD

Ah! Their TV Shows!! >.< I've been off for so long (well, my internet doesn't help too!) Thank God, you keep me updated!
I like the fact JunBa was having fun! (WTF those gifs!!WTF smirks!!)

And Sakumoto... You know... I think I liked Sho and Kazue-san together... and seriously, Jun? Why so cute??? XD
I guess he hjd the same feeling Ohno had when Yama did the Share house with Kiritani Mirei, you know, like the couple's friend!!

Oh! And I saw Mila Jovovich and Jun!! XD Oh Jun!! :3 He had so much fun!

And, to finish, your doujinshis! It's good to see you showing them! XD It's true: manga plus Arashi (plus JunToshi, right? :3)
They are so well made!!
And that JunToshi Dog gif!! \o/ ^3^ Dalmatian Jun and Poodle Ohno first meet! XD Super cute gifs!!

Great and cute post as always!! I'm glad you posted it!
I hope you have a nice trip and enjoy your vacations!!

I'll wait for your next post!

Re: You did it!!
Yama-chan! \o/
I did it! And I did it because you were here with me! *hugs Yama-chan*
As always, thanks for your comment here! ^.^ Sorry for the late reply, as you know, I was travelling and with a not so good internet connection…
Yes, we still have to watch the others members tasks on 24hs TV together and Nino’s drama! When will I see you again? *pouts*
I can’t wait to post about Arafes! *.* There are more Juntoshi’s pics! *.* XDDD Ok, all Jun-kun’s pairings, but… you know what I won’t post! XDDD
And thank for mentioning the doujinshis, I love them so much! *.*
Take care, Yama-chan and I hope to see you back on LJ soon…

Busy as ever, our boys! No complaints, though. As much as 24Hr TV was surely tiring for them, I hope it was healing for them, too. I hope meeting people from outside the entertainment industry, kids, exploring the countryside and neighborhoods in Darts made them feel refreshed. Those hardworking boys need all our love! :-)

Leader's letter was so simply and yet so meaningful. I shed hot tears. And the students' letter to Jun was so sweet! :-)

I still have to catch up on a lot of stuff especially regular shows! There's never enough time for everything! I can't wait to see the Milla Jovovich part! Have you noticed, it's always Jun who interviews the international starts, maybe because he's the fanboy in the group! LOL! :-)

Adorable fanart and gifs as usual! :-)

Please enjoy your vacation to the fullest, Sah-chan! You deserve it! :-)

I am quite sure that all of them enjoyed doing 24hs TV because it’s something they really wanted to do – it was hard work but they certainly leaned a lot from it and felt better with themselves! ^.^ I am so proud of our boys! ^.^
Jun-kun is the most adorable fanboy and the famous actress always compliment his beautiful face, he gets all shy! XDD
Thanks for the good wishes, I hope this next trip will be even better! ^.^

Aw, I loved the gifs at the end! I've been trying to find that kissing one from the concert forever! ^__^ And I'm very glad you're so happy with the doujinshi and my note. :3 I'm totally fine with posting the picture, so don't worry!

I think we already talked about 24h TV I still haven't caught up with all of the extras, and I don't know if I'll be able to! I feel like there was a lot of Jun goodness this month, so nice for you~

Maybe you already know my Arafest ticket situation, but if not I got a ticket~ I'll give you more details in the message I'm still halfway writing to you. :)

I am glad you liked the Juntoshi gifs at the end! If you have mentioned before, I would have sent you the one in which they are kissing on the concert… By the way, I have the two concert kisses in separated gifs in case you want them, just let me know! ^.^
I can’t wait to post about Arafes on the future, it was so nice and I am still really grateful for your report! ^.^
Take care! ^.^
bob lemonboblemon on September 25th, 2012 09:05 am (UTC)
No problem! Thank you for responding! I saved the one on this page, but if you have more please send them to me! I could always use Juntoshi kisses. :3 Sorry for being trouble!

I really hope you can make it next year! It's definitely very fun! ^__^
Sah-chan: juntoshisecretssesquerdo on September 25th, 2012 03:31 pm (UTC)
I sent you more Juntoshi love through pm! ^.~ And it’s not a trouble, I love sharing Juntoshi love! ^.^
shojunnijishojunniji on September 12th, 2012 01:31 pm (UTC)

have fun on your vacation! ^-^/
Sah-chan: juniloveyousesquerdo on September 25th, 2012 02:06 am (UTC)
Eh? You can’t? Here, they show perfectly fine to me… Maybe it is because it is a post full of heavy gifs so it takes time to load…
Anyway, thanks for your comment here! ^.^ Sorry for the late reply, I was travelling and with a not so good internet connection… I hope you are doing fine! ^.^ Take care! ^.^

As always, thanks for your comment here! ^.^ Sorry for the late reply, as you know, I was travelling and with a not so good internet connection…
“May that girl who ask him to conduct be blessed all her life” – your words are my words! ^.~
Jun-kun was absolutely perfect on 24hs TV! ^.^
I know this girl who does several fanarts from Jun-kun on weibo but I don’t follow her since you know… she ships a pair I don’t like! XD So, I don’t know if we can order fanarts from her… Sorry for not being able to help, Mari-chan… You could try send a message to her on weibo in English and wait to see if she will reply – good luck! ^.^
Thanks for the good wishes, I hope this next trip will be even better! ^.^

I adore your post as always, so many goodies and smiles to brighten the day! Bookmarked this so I can keep on staring these gifs, really need them right now since RL has been so hectic, no time to even breath.@_@

I'm so envious of you, all of these Juntoshi doujinshis for yourself. The artwork is truly fabulous, I just might do some searching on Ebay. ;P

I hope you have a relaxing and fun vacation, cannot wait to hear all of your adventures! ^.^ I promise that my owed reply will be waiting for you by the time to return. ;)

Thanks a lot for your comment, as always! ^.^ Sorry for the late reply, as you know, I was travelling and with a not so good internet connection…
My Juntoshi doujinshis are so precious to me and I am truly happy with them, the art is really amazing! I hope you can find some to buy yourself! ^.~ Actually, here, my friend is still selling two Juntoshi dounjishis (I had bought them before) in case you want- http://sushisalez.livejournal.com/2845.html .
My trip was really nice, except for the part that I got sick… u.u I hope next trip will be even better! ^.~ Thanks for your good wishes, Fiona-chan! ^.^
By the way, I received your reply and I will reply back when I have time, is it ok? I will be travelling again this Wednesday and, when I come back, my work will start again… u.u I hope you understand and I think it won’t be a problem since you are travelling yourself too, right?! ^.~
I really hope you can enjoy your trip with your friends and rest a little from all the chaos that was RL for you… May October be better for both of us! ^.^
Take care, dear Fiona-chan! ^.^
