Time sure flies fast! At first it felt like January is just starting, but now it's already February! Amazing right?

Can you remember what happened  last month? :)

January 1 > Happy New Year! Yaay! Together with the new year came a new arashi con dvd! (Thanks old man Johnny!) Have you watched Arashi Blast in Miyagi? :)

Glorious Miyagi Blast gifs, yeah!









WHEEEEE!!!





Sho's Life is Hard Dakara Happy.

Shake it, Jun! XD


While everyone's shakin' Ohno be like: I'm just gonna chill here, and hold on to my dear life. *lets out the cutest smile evah*


Hang in there Sho! ahaha!

Watching this is truly a great way of starting the year! :D







> In AnS, it was announced that Oh-chan will be starring in a Rom-Com drama! ^_^


Back then, we still don't have an idea on what kind of a rom-com it will be.... :3

January 8 > News about Becky having an affair with a married vocalist came out.
Becky is a great variety host. She's part of a lot of variety shows in Japan, some of them is ItteQ and Tensai Shimura! Doubutsuzen Zoo (Aiba's in there too). If you're not familiar of becky, she reenacted the last scene in HYD together with Jun in Himitsu no Arashi-chan (That ep was soo hilarious!)

http://aramajapan.com/news/gossip/gesu-no-kiwami-otome-indigo-la-ends-kawatani-enon-is-secretly-married-and-having-affair-with-becky/53706/

Honestly, I just want to punch that Enon guy in the face. He just let Becky face the media and apologize by herself, while that coward went into hiding. Now the bastard's trying to get back together with his wife and Becky lost all her endorsements and projects. She will be taking an indefinite leave. It's still not sure when she'll come back, or worse, she might never come back. :'(

January 10 > the Korean variety show, "RUNNING MAN" did it again! :/


The show was put into the hot seat last year for copying the games from VSA and using it in one of their episodes...

January 11 > Daigo and Keiko Kitagawa got married!

*Ai-ai-ai-ai I love you wo! Yaay! ^_^


When I heard of the news I was a little bit sad, (How about Sho? haha! Jk!) I really liked ShoxKeiko tandem in Nazodi... :'(

But ya know, you can see the two really love each other. And seeing Keiko laugh at Daigo's jokes and gags, no matter how corny it is, it's really love. ^_^


Dat look? Dats love. ahaha. lol!


> Gackt is in da Philippines! XD

Yes, rakenroll to da world! XD

January 12 > #SMAP trending in twitter....

because...

January 13 > Rumors that SMAP will disband broke out!


:'( They say it's because of the dispute among the heads of the jimusho... and it's because of Ijima (SMAP's manager) being forced to leave JE. They say that the 4 members will be leaving the agency and Kimura Takuya will stay.

January 14 > It was announced that Arashi will be releasing a new single "Fukkatsu Love".

> Yokatta, January 14 was also the day when it was announced that SMAP will not disband. :)

January 18 > SMAP in their own show, SMAP x SMAP made a public apology and announced that they will not disband. :)

http://en.rocketnews24.com/2016/01/19/japanese-boy-band-smap-announce-they-will-stay-together-apologise-to-fans-live-on-tv/


Even the non-fans were relieved by the news. :)

> MSN trending in Twitter Japan

MATSUMOTO SAKURAI NINOMIYA - the meaning of MSN according to Sho when he was asked in News Zero. XD

The MICROSOFT NETWORK will never be the same again.


January 19 > Okura-san of Kanjani8 will be taking a temporary leave. He will be taking an indefinite temporary leave after he was advised by doctors to take a rest after being diagnosed with intestinal obstruction.

January 20 > Sho was spotted in Disneyland together with Nagase-san. :) It was for AnS incognito trip. Ahaha.


Gents in their 30's wearing some slightly dasai clothes, touring disneyland like a boss while looking ridiculously adorable. ^_^


January 24 > I could still remember it was around 10PM in the evening when the news broke out that Sho could be/ could've been in the Philippines...


KYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! ERHMERHGERD! SHO'S IN THE PHILIPPINES! WERE BREATHING THE SAME AIR NOW!!!!

Sakurai-san will be reporting about Japan's Emperor and Empress' state visit in the Philippines... :)

January 25 > HAPPY 34TH BIRTHDAY SAKURAI SHO!!!! :)


> Like most of the girls who lived here in Philippines, I also want to know whether Sho really went here or not, so I really waited for News Zero... ahaha. Unfortunately he didn't went here, but it's still not that bad since Sho reported about the Philippines. He mentioned words like Manila, Luzon, Philippines and Aquino in his ichimen... :) Otsukare Sho-san!

January 26 > OHNO'S SPRING DRAMA TITLE WAS ANNOUNCED!

"Sekai Ichi Muzukashii Koi" (The most difficult love in the world)


He will be playing the role of Sameshima Reiji. 34 years old. Single. Rich but not popular. A man who doesn't know about love (has difficult personality). Bowdown in front of his "too late first love".


January 28 > Fukkatsu Love covers and details released! :)

Jun why you so pogi?!


January 30 > It's just their regular bangumi, but I enjoyed every minute of this day's AnS. Like who doesn't?! Arashi being their usual awesome bakakoii selves, did a lot of mainstream action scenes their own way. It's supposed to be cool, but it ended up being super hilarious af and badass too! ahaha! And seeing arashi in coats and wearing holster/gun suspenders were a plus, they look so dashing!


>And also on the same episode, the heroine for Ohno's upcoming spring drama came too! :D

It's Haru! ^_^




They look cute! :D


That's everything that I remember from January... ahaha. There are other things like RL, but who cares about that?! ahaha!
So far how's your January? :) Are there other news or updates that I missed? :)

See you!

*It's dangerous outside. Here, take some extra adorable arashi hip shake with you*

*Some of the images and gifs are not mine! Credits to their respective owners! ^_^ If you see any image or gif that is yours, please say it to me right away, so I could thank you~ ^_^

Hey everybody! :D

Have you seen the jacket covers and the tracklist of Japonism yet? It's soo cool! And the official PV for "Kokoro no Sora" is now up in the net, but I'm not sure if the whole PV was released in Japan officially or they full PV was shared by very kind fangirls out there ;) As we all know, Kokoro no Sora is a special song that arashi made in collaboration with Hotei-san! Over-all, it's so bad-ass! (In a good way, of course) Kokoro no Sora: https://www.facebook.com/wemakestorm/videos/541822732641328/

AMAZING!



I'm not sure when is the official release date of the Japonism album, but there are some leaks available in the net. I still can't find a source with all the tracks available, but then a very good friend gave me some links of arashi's respective solos (Thank you very much!)

It's my off today, but I can't go outside because there's a thyphoon, and judging from all that random stuff flying outside (leaves, branches, roof and tarps and such) DON'T EVEN. And we also had some power outage that lasted for 3-5 hours and so it gave me chance to just sit back and listen to music. I only have one day off in a week, and I'm always dead tired after work so I just sleep and hibernate after that. So when I have my off, I really have to make the most out of it, so I'm always on the roll when it comes. And the black out somehow is a blessing in disguise because I really have a good "me time" (Which I haven't done ever since I started working) just sitting there and do nothing but to listen to mu- OH MY GOD, THIS SOLO IS SOO MAJESTIC! *flails*

So I just practically listened to it... Since I cannot understand much Japanese yet, my impression are solely based on how it sounds and what I think about it :P

My impressions after listening it for the first time:

Cause first impression still does matter right? )

So that's so far what I thought of the solo tracks from Japonism... I hope I can listen to the other tracks soon *excited*

Have you listened to Japonism yet? What were your faves? Among the solos I really liked Nino the most, All solos were amazing, really but I am a bit biased with cheerful and upbreat songs.. :)


Bye! Bye! ^_^
