It’s been a while… We are already in the middle of the month and I still haven’t posted anything… RL has been hectic… But this LJ is about Jun-kun and Arashi, so let’s go to them! ^.~
Starting with a sweet fanart!
Like the others I shared here, this was made by nhbsakakude (so, please, don’t copy nor share it and don’t claim as yours). This time, my request was based on another fic that I really like, from doctoggy – Juntoshi Collar Universe. All Jun-kun’s and Riida’s accessories are based on real ones that they have already worn or still wear! And the outfit is based on the one from Wild At Heart performance on Music Station because I love it! And Huda-san was able to make all the details pretty well, amazing, isn’t it?! ^.~
Leaving my OTP aside a little, let’s talk about Arashi! ^.^
As we know, Riida and Aiba-chan are busy with their dramas and both of them are doing great in the ratings in my humble opinion! ^.^ Sho-chan has just been confirmed was the main newscaster from NTV for the Olympic Games! He sure will be busy since they have 24hs TV around the same time… Nino has just finished filming his new movie and must be recovering from the “little accident” he had while filming… Please, get better soon, Nino!
Finally, Jun-kun… What he is doing is a mystery but I have a feeling that is related to Arashi backstage work like taking care of the DVD editing, of the future tour (I hope they announce one soon) and things like that… And he is shining with his new hair! I am so in love with it ! *.* In the end, the light color of the hair went well with his features and he is almost like his chibi self, especially when his bangs are down! ^.^ Look for yourselves:
Into their activities as a group, Face Down single was out, as well as the PV! I have already written about how much I love the song! It is totally my style and it is addictive! But I liked the other songs too, especially Hitori Janai sa, I love their voices in it! ^.^ I guess I am always hooked by the LE songs – Kienu Omoi, How Can I Love and, now, Hitori Janai sa! ^.^
Anyway, here are some more gifs from the PV:
Not only the PV and the single were out, but the shop photos too and, this time, they are really fun, take a look:
And being fair with Aiba-chan, the pre-orders of Your Eyes started and the release will be in June! The only difference is that RE has one more song! ^.^ I confess I am a little worried with the sales since we will have Beautiful World Concert DVD being release just a few days before Your Eyes… The fans won’t have all that money… Not only that but, maybe, we will get another single because it seems Arashi will sing for the Olympics too… A busy year for the boys!
Since I mentioned BW DVD, Zip aired a preview of the DVD some days ago, take a look on what we will get:
I love their concerts so much, I can’t wait for having this DVD in my hands! ^.^
Like I told above, Jun-kun changed his hair and the first time we could see it was on the new J Net video! He really looks manly, doesn’t he? But I prefer the bangs down version (just like Riida ^.~)… Well, he is gorgeous anyway! XD *biased is biased*
The boys, as expected, promoted Face Down on the Music Shows! The first one that was aired (although it was recorded afterwards) was Music Station! It was such a fine show (and with great guests) – not only we could see Jun-kun’s new hair better, but they did a Top 10 songs from Arashi and they aired clips from their chibi era, how precious was that?!
Since Love So Sweet was chosen as the number one song by the public who voted, they performed it and I can’t complain because Jun-kun is the focus in it! XDD
Immediately afterwards, they performed Face Down! I don’t even know what to write because the dancing is amazing and intense! Of course, for me, the bonus are Juntoshi interactions pretending they are “lacing” each other or as puppet and master (with Aimiya doing the same)! ^.~ Unfortunately, I didn’t find gifs of these parts… u.u
The only problem was that Nino was injured, but we almost didn’t notice it since he is such a professional!
Sadly, the same didn’t happen on Hey! Hey! Hey! The show aired after Music Station, but it was recorded before and Nino had just injured his leg so he was suffering a little while performing and we could see that… It was not nice to see him hurting but I am quite sure it was his own choice to perform anyway – they are professionals and so is Nino! That’s why I think watching the performance is the best way to support him and Arashi! ^.^
So, here are some gifs from the show! I must confess Jun-kun was really hot in it, especially because they were all trying to get the public attention to cover for Nino, so we had Jun-kun in idol mode! XD Well, I can’t complain about that! XD
Talking about their regular TV Shows a little, Arashi ni Shiyagare has a new opening! Not only that, but we had Jun-kun with his new hair on a recent show!
Also, they showed us a little of 24hs TV – the boys went to visit a school in the affected areas and played with the kids, it was really cute and touching! The kids were hyper when they saw them! ^.^
On Himistsu no Arashi-chan, a new corner started called Arashi shares a house – it is like the five of them living together, but, on the show, just two of them receive a guest. The first pair was Matsumiya with Ueto Aya! It was extremely fun! Since the three of them know each other very well, they had so much fun, Jun-kun laughed so much and he made all the cute expressions possible – my heart just melted while watching the show! ^.^
Finally, on VS Arashi, we had Oguri Shun and Kasahara Hideyuki as guests to promote their new movie and it was really fun to see Jun-kun with his friends! ^.^ But, the gifs I want to share are from another episode that was aired during Golden Week – just because I love Jun-kun wearing a cap! XDD But, not only that, in this week show, they will receive international guests – Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones! Jun-kun is such a fanboy, take a look on his face! XD Adorable! ^.^
To finish my post, I want to share something I received from someone I really admire – she went to Japan and she sent me this as an omiyage! It was really sweet of her – so, again, thank you so much! You really made me happy! ^.^
To say goodbye, more Juntoshi (because, yes, I am biased):
I guess this it for now… Thanks in advance for the ones who comment! ^.^
