Happy 13th CD Debut Anniversary! It’s Ohnovember!  

It’s still the 3rd in Japan, so, Happy 13th Anniversary to Arashi! \o/

Thank you, Arashi, for providing us great songs, singles, albuns, PVs, amazing concerts and DVDs during these last 13 years, making my days happier and brighter! ^.^ I hope there is a lot more to come! From A.Ra.Shi to Your Eyes, from all the singles, let’s celebrate with 13 random PV gifs! \o/

Also, as a celebration, I am sharing the fanart above requested by me and made by nhbsakakude, based on Shinobu, an amazing ninja fic series by boblemon! Maybe some of you have seen it already on her fic community, but I am sharing it anyway, after all it’s a celebration day! \o/

And if it is Arashi’s CD Debut Anniversary, it means Riida’s month has started! \o/ Let’s hope for a great Ohnovember to all of us! \o/

Since it’s their anniversary, I will start this post writing about their news as five!

Finally, it was announced that Arashi will be the hosts for this year’s Kouhaku Uta Gassen together with Horikita Maki-san. There was a press conference in which they expressed their feelings related to the theme of the event this year – Uta de Aitai – “we want to meet you through songs”. Riida also made it clear that he wants white team to win this year! XD

They will sure be busy at these last two months of the year – they will have Popcorn Concerts, the traditional end of the year’s music shows (they are already confirmed at FNS and Best Artist) and with Kouhaku! I just wish they will take proper care of their health… Ganbatte, Arashi!

Since I mentioned Popcorn, the new album was out on October 31st and I loved it so much! *.* All the new songs are really good and the album really has a positive and up feeling to it! ^.^ I liked all the solos two, being Riida’s and Jun-kun’s ones my favorite! I know I will be called biased, but it is honest, I love Riida’s voice and it is amazing in his “Two”! Jun-kun’s solo is so much fun and it is addicting! No, it has not the most deep and meaningful lyrics, still, it makes me hyper and it gets stucked on my mind, so… I loved it! ^.^ From the new songs, I guess “Waiting for You”, “Welcome to our Party” and “Up to You” are my favorite, but I really enjoyed all of them! ^.^

The CM for the new album was really fun and the booklet of the LE edition is precious, with a picture book with them as “corns”! XD The boys appeared at several TV shows to promote their album, and Jun-kun was in Sukkiri and News Zero! Also, the shopping photos were out, take a look!



Writing about their individual activities, I guess they are focused on their Popcorn Tour rehearsals! Except, maybe, Jun-kun and Aiba-chan that are also focused on filming their new dramas! Aiba-chan will be on a new winter drama at FTV, called Last Hope and he will be a doctor that can “hear and understand” his patients' hearts, with a mysterious past, I am really looking forward to it! ^.^

As for Jun-kun, it was announced that Lucky Seven will have a special that will be aired on January 3rd and they already started filming it! Ishihara Satomi-san will be one of the “villains” and, so, we have the “Kimi wa Petto” trio reunited again! ^.^ ! Oh, and Jun-kun said on his interviews and on his Enjoy that there are several action scenes, I am really looking forward to it! Of course, I was thrilled with this news since I loved Lucky Seven and I can’t wait to see their team work again, especially more Shuntarou and Nitta! *.*



The boys keep appearing on several new CMs and Nino will even be featured on Guinness World Record since his Devil Character at Pocky CM was designed at the largest mosaic art using biscuit sticks! XD The work they did in the mosaic was amazing! ^.^ Jun-kun, Riida and Sho-chan are at the new Nissan CM, together with a cute little dog! The CM is really fun, especially because I love dogs! XDD

Still on the CMs subject, Jun-kun is featured at a new Meiji campaign, take a look!

Finally, writing about their regular TV Shows, although I am still worried about the ratings, for me, the shows have been really fun, all of them! ^.^

VS Arashi was back with the thrilling Bet de Arashi! The highlight for me, of course, was Ohmatsumiya playing cards and Riida being adorable! And Jun-kun’s victory, of course, despite the fact that nobody had bet on him! XD The other highlights were the little kids and Nino’s cute outfit plus Riida “fighting” with Haruna from Harisenbon!







On HnA, first, there was a Junba Share a House together with Naka Riisa-san, so, it was like Kaze Trio Share a House for me! XD And, after, thre was another Share a House  with the five of them without guests, in which they watched not aired scenes and talked about old episodes. Although there were some vtrs, it was really fun! Watching them relaxing together and just being them! Of course, I must point out that my fangirl heart was extremely happy when Riida chose Jun-kun as the member whose room he wants to enter the most! Riida, you are a pervert… an adorable pervert! Unfortunately to you, Aimiya is protective of their Jun-kun! XDD And, this week, there will be a Matsumiya Share a House, featuring Jun-kun in a wig! XDDD



Shiyagare has been fun because the boys are doing several interesting activities! XD They became ninjas and samurais, they performed together with Takarazuka and they learned acting as mosquitos and other funny performances! XD Right now, they must be being impressed by Daigo’s magic, but I will watch and comment about it later! ^.~




On a personal but still on a fangirl vibe note, I am addicted to Juntoshi doujinshi and I was extremely happy when these ones arrived, isn’t the art so beautiful?! *.*

Thanks for boblemon who is helping me to feed my addiction! XD As always, she sent me, together with the doujinshi, a super cute fanart she made, this time, with the five of them! Isn’t it adorable?! Thank you so much! *bows*

Finally, to finish this post, I want to thank the ones who commented on my last entry and who sent me messages! Your support and kind words are really important to me! Unfortunately, things are still difficult and the situation didn’t change much… So, I will keep not being around so much… I won’t write more because this is a celebration post, right?! ^.~

I wish you all a happy Ohnovember and thanks in advance for the ones who comment! ^.^

Thank you for your comment! ^.^ I am glad someone enjoys my recap posts! ^.^
Yes, I also wish the fansub teams would work as they used to in their TV Shows, there are fewer releases as time goes by… u.u
Good luck with the shop photos! If you need anything, just let me know! ^.^
It’s good to be posting again, it helps to distract since things are still complicated and really worrying… u.u

Wow so many pictures and gifs. ^__^ We've talked or are talking about a lot in the our messages so I won't say much here. :D Just thanks again for the fanart and everything! I'm glad you are enjoying the doujinshi! And take care will you? I hope things are getting better!
Sah-chan: juntoshibwbitesesquerdo on November 4th, 2012 07:31 pm (UTC)
Thanks for dropping by to leave a comment even though I have been bugging you a lot lately! XD By the way, I replied all that I owed to you yesterday… I hope you got the messages and no need to worry in replying them fast ok?
Like I told before, I am the one who have to thank you for sharing your great fic with us! ^.^ That’s why I am happy you enjoyed the fanart! ^.^
And thank you for the help with the doujinshi and your fanart, I really do love them! *.*
I hope you are doing fine and I wish you a great week! Take care!
marichamaricha74 on November 4th, 2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
this is superb!!
i'm going to save all those gifs like usual!

and you're right the next 2 month wwill be really busy for them!
omedetou to them for their 13th anniversary

and the new album is great!
light and fresh like a...like a popcorn lol!

i'm loving all the songs right now as i'm listening to the album as a whole without skipping any song!
i'm shouting "yatta!!!" at every songs lmao!!

like i already said, i envy the ones who'll go to the dome concert!
it will be arafes part II
I'm so looking forward to the dvd

I can't wait for L7 and Last hope

the last episodes of their shows were really great
I won't panic yet because, everytime there was a specific reason to take the numbers relatively
but that's true they need to have some serious meetings and make a plan especially for HNA
they can't continue to take arashi for granted all the time
at some point that will reflect deeply on the ratings

i loved the ohmtsumiya battle!
it was such a relax and frindly atmosphere that i belive they are the same when they're together lol

and i loved the the look of pure joy on jun's face when he was chosen by Riida lmao!
everyone guessed when his voice just craked!
he really can't hide his emotions, ne!

the anshi withe those women was so interesting!
i really to watch one their shows now

you're lucky with those doujinshi the drawings are really good
sae for the shinobi Arashi! i remember, i thought of boblemon's fic when i was that anishi with juntoshi as shinobi. (i feel bad for not commenting but i've followed her since almost the beginning)

i really happy with the popcorn sales right now
it still amazes me that people still buy the cd when everything is leaked way before the release
but i'm keeping my fingers crossed that people go on buying their stuff
and i know i will do!

Sah-chan: juniloveyousesquerdo on November 7th, 2012 08:57 pm (UTC)
Mari-chan! ^.^
Nice to see you here again, thanks a lot for your comment! ^.^
The new album is really good isn’t it?! Al the songs are really great! ^.^
Ohmatsumiya will win this world! ♥ XD
Oh, I forgot you followed Boblemon-san’s fic, it is really good, isn’t it? Sadly, it ended…
Yay for Popcorn sales! \o/ It was even better than Beautiful World, so I am really happy for them! ^.^
Take care, Mari-chan and thanks again for your comment! ^.^
blind_maiden: Jun smileblind_maiden on November 5th, 2012 01:19 pm (UTC)
Yes, I'm here!!
Haha! You didn't expect me to be here so soon, ne? ^3^
I'm so so so glad you made it!!! \o/ \o/
And there are some precious gifs (dancing happily!)

Oh, Happy Arashi birthday (again!) \o/
Our wishes that they keep together and successful are being granted \o/ Kohaku, CMs, new songs in the new album (you know my favorite), concerts, mopvies, special doramas, new doramas ... And they are happy ^w^ (I got tired while writing it!! Thank God I have your post!! It would be insane to remember everything without your help!)

We had all the 5 together in Share house, although not all pairs have had appeared (I know Juntoshi is coming!!!). As far as I know - I don't know much - their other TV shows are getting more interesting (at least those you showed me) and I hope they get better "rankings".

And again, the year is ending and they are super busy again!!! Good and bad in the same time...

Boblemon's draw style is super duper cute!!! I love it!
And Hudda's art! Amazing!! Arashi Ninja is a awesome idea (Boblemon's, right?) and the way she made them *3* so cuuuuuuuuuuuuutttttttttttttteeeeeeeee!!

And, finally, I'm glad you post it. I know how hard life is being to you, and I know how much posting and fangirling helps you. I hope to see you soon dear.

I guess, your next post will come soon (it's Ohvember ^w^)
See you!!
Big hugs to you ^^

(PS: I'll call today!! Real life urgency and fangirl urgency!)

Re: Yes, I'm here!!
Yama-chan! \o/ *hugs*
Yes, I must confess that I was really surprised when I saw your comment on my inbox, I was “wtf?! Where did she find internet connection?! XD”. But I was also really happy to see you here because, as I always say, my posts are not the same without your comments! ^.~ So, thanks a lot for your comment! ^.^
And since we were able to see each other and fangirl yesterday, I guess there isn’t much to comment back here, right?! XD
By the way, thank you for yesterday and for your always, your friendship is one of my best supports right now! ♥
*hugs Yama-chan and doesn’t let her go*
I hope to keep seeing you here and I hope you can have internet connection again soon, take care ok?!
And happy Ohvember for you! \o/

Heya Sah-chan *waves*

My apologies for this late, late comment, somehow it seem to have been pushed aside with the piles of things that I am doing and try to. @.@ Your posts are always the best, so warm and fuzzy! XD

The Popcorn was awesome, ne! All of the tracks are on repeat in my car and at home for days now, just cannot get enough of it. I absolutely agree that Oh-chan's solo was beautiful and emotional. It's my favorite among the five, Jun-kun came in next with its fun and energetic atmosphere. :) Don't worry about being biased, I'm on the same wagon, everything else seems insignificant when it comes to Juntoshi. XXD

I missed the subbed versions of our boys' variety shows too, guess everyone is too busy in RL. I do watch them in raw format now and they are quite understandable...well in my own little world. LOL The newest episodes of Himtsu and Shiyagare have been quite interesting. I was so hyper with the samurai one and Jun-kun kept on touching Nino during the session for some unknown reason. :D

The doujinshis are so beautiful, love the ones where Jun-kun hugs Riida from behind. XD What are the names of doujinshi-ka(s) or circles that created these? I might just go do some searching. ;)

Aww, the fanart are precious, nhbsakakude and boblemon are way too talented. :)

I know that I still owe you a reply and promise to send it soon. :) Thank you again for sharing the wonderful gifs, take care and stay well dearie! *hugs*
Sah-chan: juntoshifireworkssesquerdo on November 16th, 2012 10:10 pm (UTC)
Fiona-chan! \o/
*waves back*
Don’t worry, dear, even if it is late, it is always a pleasure to see a comment from you on my posts! ^.^
And I know you are busy, so don’t worry! Also, good luck with everything you have to do!
Hehehe, it is really nice to know I have a fellow biased Juntoshi fan! XD But it is honest – I just love their solos! *.*
The fansubs teams seem to be less active neh?! It’s a pity… Ninja Arashi was so much fun and it made me go into the world of a ninja fic I follow, yes, a Juntoshi one! ^.~
Most of the doujinshi are from Satodeko, she is amazing and her art is beautiful, isn’t it? (I think the author is a woman but I am not sure, I just know the name XD) I am sure you will like her stuff! ^.^
Don’t worry about the reply, take all the time you need, I know you are busy! Again, good luck with everything and take really good care of yourself ok?! ^.~
*hugs back*
