It’s October already and it’s been a month since I last updated here…

Actually, September was not so nice to me, or, being more precise, 2012 has been quite difficult to me… I don’t usually talk about myself on my LJ but I thought I should explain why I haven’t been around so much and why I will probably keep being “absent”… As I posted before, I had my vacations on September, I traveled to two different places and both were really nice and all but I wasn't so lucky… During my first trip, I got sick and I am still not 100% recovered, I need to go to the doctor again to discover why I keep coughing… Even though I wasn't fully recovered, I went to my second trip… And during it, my grandfather, who is very dear to me, was hospitalized… After a while, he left the hospital, but, today, he was sent to the hospital again and, tomorrow, he will go through a risk medical procedure… I don’t know how things will turn out because he is quite old and the problem is in his heart... If the worse happens, all I know is that it will hurt… I also know it heals, but it takes a lot of time since I have lived that when I lost my grandmother six years ago…

To make things worse, on October 1st, I went back to work and things were worse than I left… I am even considering leaving my job, but I have to think carefully about it and about my future… Although, it is impossible to think properly with all that I am going through…

That’s why I haven’t been commenting so much on my friend’s LJ and that’s also why I still didn't reply some messages I owe… I hope my few LJ friends can understand my reasons and forgive me…

Actually, I wasn't going to post at all today but I have been preparing this post since last weekend, and it’s a nice way to distract myself while I have to wait for tomorrow…

Because, although I am not so much around, I keep following the boys and they are my best medicine! I couldn't even forget about them while I was away and here is a picture to prove! XD

So, let me write about them, even if my post is all about old news! XD

Right now, the boys must be focused on their new album and new tour! During Arafes, Popcorn Album was announced as well as Popcorn Tour, with concerts in November, December and January! The cover and the track list of the album are already out (check below, a really funny cover to the LE edition) and I must say that I am intrigued with Jun-kun’s solo (“we wanna funk, we need a funk”), he said on his Enjoy that it is a genre he has never done and that it is his favorite… I am looking forward to it! ^.^ And to the other songs too!  “Welcome to our party”, a song of the new album, was played on Nino’s Baystorm and Aiba-chan’s Recomen and it is so catchy, a song that can make you feel happy and up, I loved it! ^.^ I am also looking forward to the concert since they said Riida is making the choreography of several songs! ^.^

Since they are focused on the new tour, there is even a new message of the boys on J-Net about it! Check also Jun-kun’s new hair color (I will miss the light brown one… u.u)!

With Popcorn album and tour being the focus, there aren't many individual activities to write about, except, maybe, all the new CMs each of them are staring into (check below to group’s ones and Jun-kun’s ones)… Oh! I was almost forgetting! Aiba-chan won the best jeanist award again, so congratulations to him! ^.^

Also, Juntoshi was seen on SMAP concert together with Tackey – it is always nice to know they are interacting with other JE groups, especially if it is Juntoshi together! ^.~

Finally, as the gifs above show, Jun-kun changed his hair to a dark color again and there are rumors that it is because there will be a Lucky Seven Special… The rumors gained force with the fact that Jun-kun was seen with Eita-kun some days ago (well, they are friends)… Rumors will always be rumors but I must confess that I will be really happy if this one is true! ^.^

Since I am writing about September, I guess the main event was Arafes! And it was indeed amazing from what we could see on the news and on the fans reports! They performed the most voted songs and prepared several surprises! The first one, and the highlight for me, was the five of them dancing during each other’s’ solo, or, better, in Aiba-chan’s Friendship, in Sho-chan’s Taboo and in Jun-kun’s Shake it! *.* They were all so hot doing Shake it choreography! *.* Just to be complete a post, Riida’s solo was Rain (I love it!) and Nino was Gimmick Game!

The other surprise was the special part of the show with Jun-kun as a DJ – DJMJ! He interacted with all the members, being the concert master that he is and he sure worked hard to be a DJ in live! He always makes me so proud! *biased is biased*

They performed some songs with an Orchestra and it certainly must have been amazing and beautiful! Truth and Tokei Jikake no Umbrella were choreographed by Riida, so, we just can imagine how awesome they were! *.*

In short, it was certainly another amazing concert and I would love to be able to go to next year’s one! 






During the whole concert, on the two days, there were a lot of member ai and, during Shake It, Jun-kun interacted with each of his dear members! ^.^ But, as you all know, I am Juntoshi biased, so here are some of their sweet moments, they certainly made my fangirl heart happy! ^.^ They love to hug each other, don’t they?! ^.~

Still on the group’s news, on October 5th, they appeared on Music Station and performed Akashi and Wild at Heart (another reason to the Lucky Seven rumor)! I always love Wild At Heart performance, it is so much fun! ^.^ On the talk part, the talked about their debut days since it was the theme of the show! ^.^











As I mentioned above, there are several new CMs with the boys being aired. Check the new Kirin one with Jun-kun, Nino and Sho-chan! ^.^



The news reported that there will also be new Hitachi’s CMs with Jun-kun and Aiba-chan! Their eyes are so expressive and cute! ^.^


Writing about Jun-kun’s new CMs, he is so lovely in the new Meiji CM, reading “Gone with the Wind” and helping his customer! Jun-kun, books and chocolate is a perfect combination! ^.^

But… I must say that I fell in love and I am still in love with Jun-kun’s Goom CM! I love children, so, how can I resist so many cute babies? And if Jun-kun is with the babies, being as adorable as they are… my heart goes to heaven! Sorry for the gif spam, but, yes, I love this CM! *.* 


Still writing about Jun-kun, on the 29th of September, he was on Ichiban Show Time as a MC again and he also appeared on the news to promote the show (and to play and hug a mascot since he loves mascots XD)! The highlight was seen his work with the students’ band on the 24hs TV being mentioned by the orchestra that always goes to the show, it sure touched everybody! ^.^



Finally, writing about the boys’ regular TV Shows… actually, there weren’t many because they were on “vacation”, that period in which the regular shows are not aired. But, next week, everything is back to the normal routine! ^.^ So, I just have one episode of each show to write about…

VS Arashi is the one with the longest “vacation”, the last one was on the 13th of September… I miss it so much… u.u The good news is the, next week, it will be back and it will be Bet de Arashi again! *.* It will be trilling for sure! Anyway, Oshima-san was on the last episode with her team and it was quite fun, especially Aimiya arguing about who should be the MDA! XD



On HnA, we had a special this week of two hours long and with the five of them! It was really fun! Sanma-san and two Olympic girls medalists were the guests! But, for me, what was more fun was watching the five of them interacting, especially on the beginning of the show and when they played table tennis! Jun-kun loves to play and competitions, so adorable! ^.^ And Juntoshi was lovely, they both love to tease each other! XD Poor Nino, though! XDD

So, this is where they usually sit… right, Riida?! With your hand on Jun-kun's leg... XDD





Next one will be Junba with Naka Riisa, I am looking forward to it! ^.^

Finally, on Shiyagare, we also had a special with Take Hiroshi, a famous actor who made them act like bad asses XD (Matsumiya was amazing here!) and Ryosuke Irie (who is cute), the swimmer medalist, who made them stretch or at least try to! XDD And who wanted to learn fashion from Jun-kun - clever young boy! ^.~ Also, notice Aiba-chan hitting Jun-kun! XD In next one, we will have Sho-chan, Aiba-chan and Nino as samurais and Juntoshi as ninjas, it will be fun! ^.^


To finish the post, I want to share one of the things that made me happy these days – I received my Ura Arashi Mania CD and some Arafes’ goods! ^.^ 

The goods were thanks to boblemon, who also sent me a cute note with her Juntoshi fanart and it is Juntoshi on Arafes, so, I had to post it here as a nice way to finish my post! ^.^ 

I guess that’s all for now… I don’t know when I will be able to post again and I don’t know when I will be able to reply eventual comments and messages (including the ones I owe to some of you, I am really sorry about that), I hope you all understand and bear with me a little…

Even so, thanks in advance to the ones who will read this huge post and leave a comment! ^.^ A nice October to all of you! ^.^
