A busy month for Arashi!  

March sure was a busy month for our boys and there is still more to come this week! So, let me write about the highlights of the last two weeks! ^.^

As soon as I wrote last post, on the next day, it was launched Hana Arashi campaign on FTV, exactly like Fuku no Arashi that came before! Something to celebrate the end of Lucky Seven, Nazodi Special, VS Arashi Special and Riida’s new drama – Locked Room or Kage no Kakatta Heya! This week (and on next one) we had short videos with them promoting all the TV Shows and interacting with each other! Nino had a special message to Jun-kun as well as Jun-kun had one to Aiba-chan! XD So, from now on, Jun-kun will send a message to Nino informing him when he will use a strange outfit and Aiba-chan will not give Jun-kun colored T-Shirts that lost their colors and stain Jun-kun’s sheets! XD


The best part of the campaign was that, on Friday 16th, Tokyo Tower was illuminated with Arashi colors! It became even more beautiful! *.* I love Tokyo Tower and I love Arashi so this was like a dream to me, look how beautiful it became:

On the last VS Arashi, we had the boys pointing out their best and their worst moments and Sho-chan was chose as the Most Most Damn Arashi, poor thing… But, the best part was the preview for the Special to come this week, with a new game created by the boys and a corner called Bet de Arashi, in which they will compete against each other! I can’t wait! ^.^

Since I am writing about their regular TV Shows, let me write a little about the other two! The last Shiyagare was a Special one, with the boys having fun, and, in the end, they aired another short video of the Concert the boys did on Miyagi, this time, we could watch Hatenai Sora performance and their words! It was touching! Not only that, but NTV announce a day full of Aiba-chan on the April 14th, the day his new drama will start – Mikineko Holmes no Suiri! The symbol of the campaign is so cute, perfect for Aiba-chan! ^.^

Oh! And great news – Arashi will sing the theme song for Aiba-chan’s drama, which means we will have new single, new performance and new PV (I hope)! ^.^

Finally, into TBS, it was announced another Mannequin Five Special and they are taking votes already! It’s hard to say who is who although everybody (myself included) has their own guesses… I voted and it’s pretty easy to guess my choice – there is a color in there that I love so I couldn’t help! XD Anyway, honestly, all that I want is that Jun-kun doesn’t lose again… u.u

Still about TBS, yesterday, it was aired a Special TV Show in commemoration of HnA anniversary in which we had the boys, just the five of them, having lunch and talking, being them and having fun! It was really an adorable special! ^.^ And with some Juntoshi moments to make my heart happy! ^.^

Oh! And the boys are in a new Kirin CM, which is really fun and full of Aimiya! ^.^ I miss having more CMs with the five of them!

Writing about my dear Jun-kun, on the day Tokyo Tower was Arashified, he and Lucky Seven Team were there filming a scene for the last episode of the drama! Yes, this time, Arashified Tokyo Tower was the cameo in Jun-kun’s drama! XD

And, on Monday 19th, the same day the last episode would air, Jun-kun went to Mezamashi to promote it, he was really cute and some scenes of the crank up were showed! ^.^

And, Lucky Seven ended… u.u I will miss the drama so much! >.< In my opinion, it was really a good drama, the casting was amazing and, not only that, but, for me, even the script was ok and well planned! For it is like those American series that we have one case per episode and we get to know the main characters little by little! Of course, that was adapted to the fact that they knew Eita-kun would be leaving for his play in the middle (because, honestly, we would be really naïve if we think they didn’t know).

Anyway, in the firsts episodes, we got to know Shuntarou and Nitta better, we had their interaction and Shuntarou was always trying to surpass Nitta and failing… Also, since the very first episode, the boss’s father drama was being showed, little by little, as a mysterious theme.

Then, on the middle, Nitta leaves and Shuntarou has his chance to keep growing and the others team members gain the focus – episode 06 was about Tsukushi-san, episode 07 about Junpei-san, episode 08 about Asuka-chan and, finally, the last two episodes about the boss and her father’s mystery! Not only that but, on the last two episodes, we can see how much their bounds grew and their team work is perfect! And, as a bonus, we have Nitta back and the opportunity to see that, now, he and Shuntarou are on the same level! The scene in which he discovered Nitta, wining from him on the fight, shows that! ^.^

So, even the plot was well written and organized in my opinion! Like I said, the cast was amazing and nobody says anything on the contrary! The action was the highlight of the drama! The episodes with the lower ratings were the ones with less action and more human drama. Being honest, I really like those episodes, but I guess Japan is more into action right now…

Anyway, to crown this great drama, in the end, the ratings were really good and Lucky Seven was the best winter drama in terms of ratings (Taiga Drama and Aibou 10 are not winter dramas since they are longer)!

I am really happy for Jun-kun and all the cast, they deserved it! ^.^

Now, onto the episodes… Episode 09 was about Shuntarou being fooled by a girl and the great action scenes were back! Not only that, but we had the boss’s kidnapping as a cliffhanger in the end! Bonus of the episode – Shuntarou in glasses again! ^.^





Episode 10 was about the team rescuing the boss, finding Nitta in the process and working as a team to solve the boss’s father case! A lot of action and funny moments, it was trilling! And the team work touched my heart! ^.^ As well as Inu and Saru reunion, I really love those two together!












I will miss Shuntarou and Lucky Seven so much… u.u That’s why I can’t wait for the DVD Box to be released and to all the extras! ^.~

That’s it… Now, I am looking forward to VS Arashi Special, Mannequin Five Special, Nazodi Special, Riida’s and Aiba-chan’s new dramas and Nino’s movie! ^.^ Jun-kun, I hope you can rest a little now! ^.^

To the one who comment, thanks in advance, see you on next post! ^.^

So many cute gifs as always! :-) I'm putting them in my memories! Yay! I skipped looking at the gifs of the last episode of Lucky Seven because I haven't seen it yet! Don't want it to end yet! :-)

Looking forward to all their activities, it's so busy month after month for all of us. Hope they find time to relax a bit and spend leisurely days, too.

Thanks for the update, Sah-chan! :-)

Thanks a lot for your comment! ^.^ It always makes me happy that you enjoy my posts! ^.^ By the way, I edited the entry and added two more gifs (you know, I can’t resist Juntoshi)! ^.^
And I hope you will enjoy Lucky Seven Final when you watched it! ^.^ It’s sad to see it ending, but it is a very good end! ^.~

Hi!! How are you!!
Oh!!It's nice to see your posts, so good for my eyes!! *.*
And, yes it was a super busy month for them!
First, Jun worked hard in Lucky Seven!! They deserved the first place in best winter drama!!! \o/ I loved Lucky Seven, I will miss the characters, the cases, the fight scenes... I still wish it could have a special, or a movie, or a second season... I will be waiting! (I’m sitting here waiting patiently!). I hope Jun can rest a bit now, take care of his health… maybe he could do something relaxing, like fishing!
Plus, Sho worked hard as newscaster, in Nazodi and in Blackboard! Nino is doing his movie, and Aiba-chan and Ohno-chan are ready for their doramas!! Aiba-chan was particularly cute when they announced the Doyou no Aiba-chan! It was an wonderful smile :3 AND NEW ARASHI SONG!!! I hope, from the bottom of my heart, to see a PV with cats! Or the members as cats! Or doing more nyan moves! Or cat years! I mean, Meikyuu had Riida in cat years, in Wild at Heart we had nyan moves, it’s totally possible *.*
(sorry… I got excited!)
Aw! Hana Arashi is super cute! And the lunch they shared! *+* \o/ *+* \o/*+* \o/*+* \o/*+* \o/
I’m a bit nervous with M5… but I also voted already, so we only have to wait…
Well, I hope you’re fine!! I’ll be waiting for your next post!! Kissu!
(… Why are you irritated? Something happened?)
Sah-chan: junpoodlesesquerdo on March 26th, 2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
Yama-chan! ^.^ Thank you as always for your comment! ^.^
Oh! And before I forget, let me tell you that , I edited the entry and added two more gifs (you know, I can’t resist Juntoshi, especially when Jun-kun is feeding his Riida)! ^.~
OMG! It’s so you to wish for a PV with cat ears and nyan dance! XD But, honestly, I think they will do something new… How knows, maybe we can see some cute animals on the PV! ^.~ *again my icon with a puppy for you*
And I was sure you would love Aiba-chan’s faces when they announced his day! After all, he is your ichiban and he was with your two favorite OTPs - Juntoshiba! XDDD *runs to hide* Although, there is always Yama in heart… u.u XDDD *runs faster*
Ok, he was really cute! ^.^
Hum, about me, now, you know what it is about… u.u Thanks for hearing my rants! ^.^
blind_maidenblind_maiden on March 26th, 2012 08:52 pm (UTC)
Sá-chan!! \o/
*.* more gifs!! And I love this icon!!
Yeah, I know they will have something new... but it would be so cool \(*+*)/
And if they use animals maybe the director could put one little creature for each of them \(*3*)9 (<- this is to be me, wishing with my fist!)

Oh, my, his smile was... AWW!hehe, Juntoshiba!I think I love this name more than anything!Kidding! XDD But these three are so cute together! See:

Oh, this is for you:

Well, I'm bit worried, but there isn't much I can do now besides listening ... I guess I'll have to sit and wait for the next step - like a super villain! >:D hehe!
I'll at least hope everything get better, like always. If there is something I can do, tell me, ok?
see you!
Sah-chan: junpuppysesquerdo on March 27th, 2012 12:58 am (UTC)
Yama-chan! ^.^
And, because of you, I had to edit my post for the fourth time to include the new Juntoshi gif! XD Because life is really better with Juntoshi! ^.^
By the way, why do I get the feeling that you are trying to cheer me up with all these replies and gifs and pictures? ^.~ Thank you really! ^.^ And just because you know I also find Juntoshiba cute (with Jun-kun in the middle especially), you shouldn’t abuse that! XDDD
And I must confess I laugh really hard when I read “\(*3*)9 (<- this is to be me, wishing with my fist!)”! XDDD But I will be happy if you are right! ^.~
Listening is already a lot! ^.^ Besides that the only thing is to try to be careful and don’t support the stupid haters and stupid so-called fans… u.u
Anyway, thanks again, Yama-chan! ^.^ By the way, now, I have Kami-sama no Karute subbed, are we going to watch together? ^.~
PS: A cute icon for you and this:


blind_maidenblind_maiden on March 27th, 2012 05:07 am (UTC)
*+* Snoopy and Pikachu!And Jun with a puppy! Lovely!

hehe, I'm glad you like, I loved the gifs *+* Of course this is to cheer you up... and because it's fun! \o/*+*
Let's watch Kami-sama no Karute! Perm Sho!

and I'm happy that I was helpful. We must take care with all haters and that kind of "fan", and we must stick together, so we can be happy and secure!! \o/
Thanks again (*o*)

Sah-chan: junrainbowsesquerdo on March 27th, 2012 12:51 pm (UTC)
Now, a rainbow icon for you! ^.^
I am happy you liked the gifs! ^.^ Chose for you! ^.~
Ok! So, we have dark Jun-kun and Perm Sho-chan to watch! XD Among others silly things! XD
By the way, Mari-chan asked you a question on Matsutalk, did you see? ^.~
Thanks for everything, Yama-chan! ^.^ (I confess that, these days, Yama just don’t bother me when it comes to call you ^.~)
blind_maidenblind_maiden on March 27th, 2012 04:29 pm (UTC)

Tokyo Tower looked relly pretty in the Arashi colors *---*
I haven't voted in the M5... I don't know what to write there, like name... in katakana or just romanji? it makes me a bit nervous anyway :P
I hope someone subs the Himitsu SP, I watched that clip with Riida eating half asleep and it was incredibly cute! >v< and I can't wait for VS... the new game seems fun and the Arashi battle Arashi sound promising! *.*
I'm watching Lucky Seven right now, I finished ep 4 and I liked what I saw ^-^b does Jun act all his action scenes? O.o! the kicks are very expectacular! *o*

thanks for another update! ^v^/
Sah-chan: junchibibearsesquerdo on March 26th, 2012 08:17 pm (UTC)
Hi, Kirie-san! ^.^ Thanks for your comment! ^.^ By the way, are you fine? I heard about the recent earthquake, a pretty high one…
If you really want to vote, there are instructions in the communities to help you! There is just two places in which you have to use katakana to write your full name. The rest can be in English and in Romanji! ^.^ It’s easy, don’t worry! ^.^ But it is hard to choose! Although, in this case, it was easy for me, I fell in love with the outfit at first sight! XD
I hope you keep enjoying Lucky Seven! ^.^ And, yes, I think it is Jun-kun himself who does almost all the actions scenes, he even said he was chosen because of his stage play and his trained body! *proud fan is silly XD*
Kirie: juntoshikiriezero on March 26th, 2012 10:58 pm (UTC)
yes, I'm fine! ^^ thanks for worring *hug* well, people is still arguing if it was an earthquake or a "big shake": no people died, no tsunami and no houses or buildings were seriously damaged so... that in our language means "shake" :P ... but you know, the scientist I wrote about the other day (in that post that now is hidden in a sudden "omg! men in black will hunt me!!!" attack XD) was right... and that's a bit scary O.O! the date window and the place were right, just the intensity was less because he already said the energy needed for a big disaster was gone... but there was still energy left.. and then we had 2 shakes (saturday and sunday)~ O.O
oh well, at least now we can be warned about earthquakes and that's good... I hope they keep studying this discovery.

ok! then I'll go and vote for the M5!!! ^.^/ I haven't seen the outfits yet... I'll do it now and I'll try to vote :)
Sah-chan: juntoshisesquerdo on March 27th, 2012 12:59 am (UTC)
*hugs back*
I am glad to know you are fine, Kirie-san! ^.^ So that was a Shake, thanks for explaining to me! ^.^ I was happy to know there weren’t serious consequences but I found it strange since the Shake was so strong…
OMG! So the theory worked! O.O It’s good if we can know beforehand when earthquakes are going to happen, but let’s hope for a proper use of this knowledge! ^.^
And good luck with voting, if you have any doubt, let me know! ^.~

Hi Sah-chan^^ Your posts are so much fun! Even though I wasn't able to watch everything you listed, you provided great little synopses of everything with perfectly collected GIFs that I feel like I didn't miss out! (Even though of course I definitely still need to go and watch the full episodes, hehe.)^^ <3
Sah-chan: matsumiyachibihugsesquerdo on March 26th, 2012 08:18 pm (UTC)
Hi! *waves* Thanks a lot for commenting here! ^.^ It always makes me happy that you enjoy my posts! ^.^ And I hope you can find some time to watch all their shows, you will have a great time, I am sure! ^.^ At least, I know you enjoyed Lucky Seven! ^.^
marichamaricha74 on March 27th, 2012 09:31 pm (UTC)
first let me save those gifs!
OMG! i didn't knew some!
but it's a dangerous situation i'm in . I can't resist Shuntarou+glasses! my ultimate OTP!

ok, let's be serious :o)

As usual, Arashi is pretty busy these days and the hana arashi project is a great idea. Now TT is my phone background and i'm so proud of them. They've managed to make me want to see the TT more than the Eiffel tower lol

Lucky7 is already a classic for me and i'm so proud that the drama has managed to be the number one winter drama amidst all the trolls hoopla
I really hope for a season 2 and not a movie because it's a whole universe that needs to be explore more now that the characters are settled

Now i'm patiently waiting for Oh-chan and Aiba-chan dramas as well Sho's SP
I don't expect Nino's yet as the movie will surely be released much later

As for M5, hope Jun won't loose again lool

I wonder what he will do now though
lots of behind the scenes work maybe
Sah-chan: juniloveyousesquerdo on March 28th, 2012 02:50 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, Mari-chan! ^.^
Well, I have to agree with you Shuntarou and glasses are indeed a perfect (and hot) combination! ^.~
A second season of Lucky Seven would be a dream coming true, but, honestly, I don’t think it will happen… So, if we could at least have a special, I would be happy! ^.^
You know I love Tokyo Tower, neh?! ^.^ And, since I have been there, I must say – it is really beautiful and being there is like dreaming! ^.^
Yes, I think Jun-kun will be doing behind the scenes work for Arashi… And I hope he can rest too! ^.^ He has been working non-stop since his butai! Our ichiban deserve a good rest! ^.^

Heya dearie! *waves*

Your posts are alway stress-relievers for me -- fun and happy! Hehe...I had to save all of those gifs, I could never just pick one or two, might need to dedicated a HDD for them. LOL The one with Jun-kun with the glasses and waving is too dreamy. XDD

I finally was able to finish Lucky Seven, it was an awesome drama and will probably re-watch when all of the subs are released. ^^ Jun-kun and the entire cast did a brilliant job and it concluded nicely, they will be missed dearly.

I also cannot wait to see Riidas and Aiba-chan's new dramas, as well as, Arashi's new activities for this month. Gambatte!! :D

Hehe...I know I still owe you a reply, hopefully by this weekend. Have an awesome week and holiday, Sah-chan! XD
Sah-chan: juntoshibwbitesesquerdo on April 4th, 2012 01:13 am (UTC)
Hi, Fiona-chan! ^.^
Nice to see you here, thanks for your comment, as always ^.^
I am happy to know that my posts help you to relax a little while you look at the gifs! ^.^
I am also happy to know that you enjoyed Lucky Seven, it was a great drama wasn’t it? And the cast did a great job! ^.^ The only problem is that I miss it so much… u.u I hope the rumors about a Special Drama or a Movie are true! ^.~
Finally, don’t worry, take your time to reply! ^.^ Here, the Holiday is just on Friday… But, let’s enjoy it anyway, right? I hope you can rest a little! ^.^ Take care, Fiona-chan! ^.^
PS: I love your icon so much that I have the same one! XD Here, Juntoshi-bite icon for you! ^.~
