Anniversary - how fast a year goes by...

Technically it's been last Monday, but I didn't come round to posting any earlier.
So, I've just had my Arashi anniversary. And come July this LJ will have been round for 5 years. So I feel like celebrating~

I won't be able to post on my actual LJ anniversary because I'm in the middle of moving house (right now I'm in process of planning but it's already giving me headaches) and I might not even be able to go online at the beginning of July.
So I decided to kind of combine both dates to compile the following list.

Those five years gave me this (and so much more ):

215 episodes Arashi ni Shiyagare
    24 SPs
206 episodes VsArashi
     7 VsArashi SPs
120 episodes Himitsu no Arashi-chan
     4 x Mannequin 5 SP ^^y
102 episodes Aiba Manabu
  77 episodes Nino-san
  47 episodes Sakurai Ariyoshi Abunai Yakai
  39 episodes Ima kono Kao ga sugoi
   5 times hosting Kouhaku Utagassen
   2 times hosting 24hr TV

16 singles
 8 concert DVDs/BDs
 5 studio albums
 1 compilation

14 Doramas
13 Dorama SPs
11 Movies

Hopefully I counted correctly >.< There are bound to be mistakes for their regular TV shows because of the SPs

Guys, I love you!

Me loves my Ohmiya


One thing's for sure. Whenever you're down Arashi will come and light up your mood.
Like today, when the day started all wrong and then it went gradually down after that (you all know those days, right? With your coffee maker dying on you first thing in the morning?) But then I listlessly browsed the net and came across Ohmiya and they brightened up my day. And don't they look perfect together♥

Sho as Kageyama featured in Meitantei Conan

For the second time Aoyama Gosho, the author of manga Meitantei Conan, has used an Arashi member as reference material for his Detective Encyclopedia. For those who don't follow the manga: at the end of each takoubon the author introduces a famous detective along with a doodle, tells his readers why he likes him/her and says which story is his favourite.

After portraying Leader as Enomoto Kei a while back (you can go here for my entry about it), in book #82 he introduces Nazotoki ha Dinner no atode and Sho as the hottest butler ever Kageyama.
And yes, techincally he doesn't introduce Sho but like last time I don't care that much since he was clearly depicted, so who cares?

(click onto the image for full size - 448px × 623px
I'll try to re-scan it at 600dpi in the next couple of days)

Of course he also wrote a little something about Kageyama and the novel series.

Please don't repost the scan or the text. Thank you very much!

Oh, my Oh-chan...

I'm really looking forward to all the Hawaii SPs we are being graced with starting Saturday and I've been re-watching the previews again and again.
I think it's no secret that our beloved Leader cried at the VsArashi SP (*sniff*) but today they aired an extra moment and I was just 'Oh, my poor, poor Oh-baby...' I wonder whether Nino Arashi cuddled him afterwards? Wanna see!!!

On a happier note, they let him fish at Shiyagare and he looked soooooooooo happy :)

I lol'ed so much much when I kinda understood (or I think I did) that Nino did only indoor activities...

And our fabulous J... he beautifies the beach.

[Making Of] Zero-G and Ohmiya♥

I had sooo hoped for some Ohmiya love at the Making Of of Arashi's Zero-G, but I shouldn't've worried since Ohmiya seldom disappoints :) I know I'm not the first to picspam (and certainly won't be the last). But who can blame me?

I didn't have any time for gifs this time, but I hope the feelings of unrivaled love will come across anyway.
Please note that this post is image-heavy (around 30 caps).

Ohmiya Love x 30Collapse )

Pwuh, I hope this wasn't too long and/or boring. If you want to drop a comment, I'd be seriously happy♥

Some notes (in the highly unlikely but not impossible event, there's someone who doesn't know what this whole post was about): Zero-G was released as a bonus PV on Arashi's recent album The Digitalian and (for the first time in 3 years) graced us with a Making Of. The choreography was done by Ohno, so Arashi praises their Riida throughout the Making Of and said Riida looks a little nervous (cuu~te)
Btw, at the end of the Making Of there's an uncut version of the dance (and imo it's so much better this way than the relatively short bits that are used for the actual PV).
Btw 2, next week's Friday Arashi will guest on Music Station and probably perform Zero-G :)

I want to believe...

Okay, so I was watching this week's VsArashi.

It was at Rolling Coin Tower that my Ohmiya senses were piqued. Not least because after ages Nino and Oh-chan were teamed up together again. And then suddenly I saw Nino's hand disappearing behind Ohno's back, lingering for a sec just slightly above hip height and when Nino retracted said hand he was smiling happily.

And when I re-watched it more often than probably is healthy several times, I began to suspect that Neeners might just have been streching his arms and hasn't touched Ohno at all ;_;

But I want to believe in Nino's groping hand, so I'm posting a screencap anyway.

Yeah, the quality's not that great. It's from when Nino retracted his hand, because the angle and the fact that they're both wearing red made it impossible to see anything otherwise :/

And I decided that in my mind they were cuddling (because for Ohmiya groping counts as such) and be happy

Some coincidences are so perfect...
Like today I went to a job interview and since I had some time to spare, I walked around the town. And then I spotted this signboard (advertising for the local martial arts club)!!!!!
And on Arashi's anniversary day! I would've been even more perfect than it already was if it had 'Ohmiya' instead of 'Yama', but I'm so not complaining.

Although I've only known Arashi for a small part of their 15 years, I'm so happy about every single day since they've brought me so, so, so much joy. I really hope that one day 'll be able to see them in the flesh and even more I hope that they'll continue to be the awesome that they are

Btw, last weekend I finally managed to watch NazoDi Movie as well as Hidamari no Kanojo. They're both really nice, me thinks. Jun's movie was a bit sad towards the ending, but at least I have a new favourite song with 'Wouldn't it be nice?' (never was I happier than when I roamed my mum's CD collection and found some Beach Boys). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a second season of NazoDi (Sho is just too awesome; the chemistry between butler and his lady is simply priceless. My favourite scene is when he praises Reiko and she is shocked he hasn't insulted her before solving the case *lol*).
