The four of us : Shitsuka, Aria, Nuriko and Ayane. Eighteen-year-old fangirls that love Arashi so much. Having fan-girling over Arashi as a hobby for quite some time now, they have come to be a part of our lives. and yes, we go kyaa when our ichibans does something cute. :D

We are simple, nice and friendly. But as you can see, our life somehow, revolves around Arashi. We are addicted, die-hard-fans, obsesssed, deluded psycho or whatever word there is.

No matter what; we surely, as in matter of fact, and officially, are-the-Arashians.

* * *


Satoshi Ohno

A1. Takahisa Masuda (NEWS). Massu.

A2. Tomoyuki Yara (Musical Academy). But everyone’s good in their own way. (But if I had to choose then) it would be Yaracchi…

A3. Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi)

A4. Shigeaki Kato (NEWS). I go out fishing with him.

A5. Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO). Matsu-nii. I got that impression having worked with him a lot.

A6. Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO). Matsu-nii is fast at running.

A7. Kazunari Ninomiya (Arashi)

A8. I don’t know…

A9. Yoshihiko Inohara (V6)

A10. Shigeaki Kato (NEWS). (After telling Ohno that Kato-san had said, “I want to go fishing with Ohno for work”) Sure, I’ll go with that (laughs).

A11. Um…I don’t really watch TV.

A12. “硫黄島からの手紙 (Letters from Iwojima)”. I saw it and cried.

A13. “時代(TOKIO)をよろしく!” by TOKIO. It’s a song that means a lot to me, it was the first song I danced to.

Sho Sakurai

A1. Masayuki Sakamoto (V6). I love the Disney song Sakamoto-san sang, it was very serene.

A2. Go Morita (V6). The way he gets on the rhythm is cool, he’s like someone from overseas.

A3. Junichi Okada (V6). When I played next to him on “木更津キャッツアイ (Kisarazu Cat’s Eye)” I learnt a lot from him.

A4. Kenichi Okamoto. If I had to choose, it would be Kenichi Okamoto-san. But he’s a big senior of mine, so rather than being in my circle of friends, it’s more like he lets me go out with him.

A5. All of my seniors. It’s because they paved the way, and that’s why I’m where I am today.

A6. Taichi Kokubun and Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO). I think Kokubun-san has amazing stamina. I’m amazed at how Matsuoka-san can do anything as well.

A7. Yuri Chinen (Hey! Say! JUMP). Because he loves Ohno-kun apparently. He said so in a magazine.

A8. Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO). He knows and does a wide range of sports, even ice skating, and knows a lot about clothes.

A9. Kazukiyo Nishikiori (Shonentai). I remember when I went to New York with him for work about 10 years ago. He just knew all these things and I remember thinking that I wanted to become an intellectual adult like him.

A10. Kanjani8. It was so fun when we played one another in Mannequin5 on “ひみつの嵐ちゃん! (Himitsu no Arashichan!)”. I want to go on another variety show with them.

A11. “R30″ I loved the atmosphere (Taichi) Kokubun-san and (Yoshihiko) Inohara-san created.

A12. “模倣犯 (Mohouhan)

A13. “愛なんだ (Ai nanda)” by V6. It’s a really good song and it reminds me of the time it came out.

Masaki Aiba

A1. Masayuki Sakamoto (V6)

A2. Noriyuki Higashiyama (Shonentai)

A3. Kenichi Okamoto

A4. Shunsuke Kazama

A5. Masahiko Kondo. I have a lot, but it does have to be Matchy-san.

A6. Masahiro Matsuoka (TOKIO)

A7. Ummm, I don’t know…

A8. I think Katsuhide Uekusa (Shonentai). He looks it.

A9. Yoshihiko Inohara (V6) I guess, yes (laughs). That’s my image.

A10. Yu Yokoyama (Kanjani8), I want to go for a walk with him.

A11. “ガチンコ!! (Gachinko!!)” I watched it a lot.

A12. ピカ☆ンチ (Pikanchi)


Kazunari Ninomiya

A1. I guess Masayuki Sakamoto (V6). He’s really good, and he’s one of my favourite singers.

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). Because I met leader around the time everyone was saying he was good.

A3. Go Morita (V6). I guess Go-kun. I have this impression that he gets asked to star in a variety of stage plays and movies a lot.

A4. Shingo Murakami (Kanjani8). Hina. I’m close with Kanjani8 members, and a lot of them joined (the agency) around the same time as me so there’s no pressure.

A5. Masaki Aiba (laughs). Because probably no one will choose him so I’ll choose him (laughs). In every way this is a pity vote (laughs).

A6. Tatsuya Yamaguchi (TOKIO). I have this image that everyone in TOKIO is athletic. Especially Yamaguchi-kun because he looks like he does a lot.

A7. Ken Miyake (V6). I guess Ken-chan. Actually, I shouldn’t be calling my senior like that, but I can because he’s so friendly (laughs). He’s just Ken-chan. He’s nice to his juniors as well so rather than being spoilt, he’s just friendly.

A8. Masahiko Kondo. I guess Matchy-san. Not that he’s got a mountain of hobbies, but I have an image that he’s interested in a range of things.

A9. Sho Sakurai (Arashi). Because he works in the news. From that, I guess.

A10. Taichi Kokubun (TOKIO). He’s used to talking so it might be easy. I just want to talk I guess.

A11. “ザ・鉄腕! DASH!! (The! Tetsuwan! DASH!!)” I’ve been watching it for years. They’ve built an entire village now, which is amazing, but it’s still fun to watch and there’s always something new to like which is what I love.

A12. ピカ☆ンチ (Pikanchi). The movies we make as a group have such a Johnny’s quality about them. Something you can’t get unless you’re a Johnny’s. I want to make a “Pikanchi 3″, but we’re still getting rejected (laughs).

A13. “FRIENDS” by KinKi Kids. Because the first time I was on TV was for this song. It’s a memorable song. It might be different from my favourite song, but it’s the first song that comes to mind. I’ve definitely listened to and learnt a lot of other songs, but if this comes on I think I can sing it, and I can practise hard…even though all I did was sway from side to side, it’s a song that means a lot to me.

Jun Matsumoto

A1. Tsuyoshi Domoto (KinKi Kids). Since when I was his back dancer I thought he was good.

A2. Go Morita (V6). This was a really long time ago, and I don’t remember if he was good or bad, but I remember thinking he looked so cool. I can’t help but look when they’re dancing.

A3. Goro Inagaki (SMAP). I saw “Thirteen Assassins” and thought his acting and character was amazing.

A4. Ryo Nishikido and Shingo Murakami (Kanjani8). Maybe Nishikido-kun. I’ve been meeting up with Hina (Murakami) more lately, we go out for dinner.

A5. Masahiko Kondo. When I congratulated him on his 30th anniversary, as a thank you gift he gave me a copy of his “ざんばら (Zanbara)” CD which he had signed and written me a message inside. I was really happy when I read the “Dear Jun”, and I think that responsible attitude is cool. I want to be like him.

A6. Tomoya Nagase (TOKIO). This is from an impression I got of him when he was a guest on our TV show “嵐の宿題くん (Arashi no Shukudaikun)”. He’s really tall, and when we had to jump into this very small space, he flew into the air. That and seeing him put so much effort into it made an impression on me.

A7. Yuri Chinen (Hey! Say! JUMP). Not really spoilt, I guess. It’s just that he really likes our leader (Ohno), and I’ve seen him mention our leader again and again in every magazine I’ve looked at. The way he acts like a little brother I think.

A8. There must be a lot…I don’t know…I can’t choose.

A9. Sho Sakurai (Arashi). That has to be Sho-kun. He’s a reporter.

A10. Kanjani8. Eight and Arashi!

A11. “ザ・鉄腕! DASH!! (The! Tetsuwan! DASH!!)” I love it when they do the 5 people vs 100 people tag game. It looks like a lot of fun.

A12.ピカ☆ンチ (Pikanchi). I wish we could make a third one (laughs).

A13. “ABC” by Shonentai. We used it as a sample song while making “a Day in Our Life”, and I think it has a pretty melody. It still sounds new when I listen to it.

* I love the answers in coloured font :D LETS SPREAD THE MEMBERS' LOVEEE~

Okay. So there's A LOT of other Johnny's that vote for Arashi members. Especially Chinen (Hey! Say! Jump). I think he voted Oh-chan for EVERYTHING XD

but what I'll put here only those with interesting comments :)

Nakamaru Yuichi (KATTUN)

A11. “NEWS ZERO”. I watch it a lot.

A12. “硫黄島からの手紙 (Letters from Iwo Jima)”. I’ve always liked watching war movies too.

Junnosuke Taguchi (KATTUN)

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). One time when I was on the internet, I searched, “Ohno, miracle” (laughs).

A13. “truth” by Arashi. This song is the best!

Koki Tanaka (KATTUN)

A1. Sho Sakurai (Arashi). He’s so good at rapping. He can say it all. Even if Sho-kun could rap like me, I would never be able rap like Sho-kun.

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). He is so amazing! And I think it’s really cool he doesn’t show off that he’s a good dancer.

Shibutani Subaru (Kanjani 8)

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). He is just, he moves so easily and lightly that he’s floating in mid-air (laughs).

Yokoyama Yu (Kanjani 8)

A13. “きっと大丈夫 (Kitto Daijyobu)” by Arashi. The one that goes, “lucky lucky babe”. I love that song.

Shigeaki Kato (NEWS)

A10. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). I want to make a fishing show. I go fishing with Ohno-kun a lot, and I tell him I want to make a fishing show.

Keichiro Koyama (NEWS)

A5. Sho Sakurai (Arashi). As a reporter…I really admire him!

A13. “時計じかけのアンブレラ (Tokei jikake Umbrella)” by Arashi. It’s the theme song to my drama/stage play “0号室の客 (0-goshitsu no Kyaku)”, but I think it’s cool.

Kota Yabu (HSJ)

A8. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). Because he does a lot of things like fishing and art.

Ryutaro Morimoto (HSJ)

A2. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). I have an image that he’s really good. I was really surprised when I saw him dancing in concert. He’s so different to what he’s like on TV, it was amazing.

Chinen Yuri (HSJ & NYC)

A10. Satoshi Ohno (Arashi). I want to make a duo called Satoshi&Yuri!


I love what Koki said about Sho :)

That's all for now. For more :

Matsumoto Jun receives “VOCE BEAUTY AWARDS 2010″ for his Fasio CM!

Although this happened last month, but i still wanna post as this is the only vid that i can find with matsujun's latest haircut =D

*side view man!! lovelove~*

Arashi member, Matsumoto Jun has received the “Best Beauty CM Award” for his Fasio “Mascaliner” CM! This award is a new section for the “VOCE BEAUTY AWARDS” which is organized by VOCE (beauty magazine) to choose the best cosmetic products of the year.

On December 7th, Matsumoto appeared at the awarding ceremony stating, “When I first got the offer, I thought I would have to be disguised as a woman. Although I’m surprised to receive this award, I am also very honored.” He also stated that the reason why his CM received the award is that it was very fresh idea to appoint a guy for a cosmetic CM.

This is the video from the awarding ceremony that i found in youtube but you can watch a longer video here!

and this is the second matsujun's Fasio cm


Arashi proves to be more than just a collection of pretty faces

To some, idols are nothing more than a pretty face, and the feeling is honestly understandable. In Japan, when it comes to the qualifications of idols, looks often precede talent, and everything is rehearsed and pre-screened.

But that stereotype doesn’t hold for all idols.

Many Japanese fans mention that a certain artist has helped them emotionally in their time of need, whether it be through music or acting or humor, and so is the case of a 63-year-old American lady named Margaret, who had lost her husband and was having trouble letting go. It turns out she was comforted by a song, “Kako“, a poetic ballad about not being able to let go. Of course, that track was performed by none other than J-pop idol superstars Arashi, and the song was composed by member, Kazunari Niniomiya.

Margaret was introduced to the group by her friend that lives in Japan, and while she didn’t understand the language, the song still comforted her, motivating her to look up the song’s translations. Along the way, she took the time to research the group, which led her to watching subtitled variety shows, and eventually, she found herself gradually being cheered up by the group’s humorous shows and charming nature.

While this may be just one case in a sea of a million, it’s not exactly a stretch to say the group’s worldwide popularity is not solely due to their pretty faces. As for the case of the elderly American lady, she wasn’t drawn in by superficiality, but rather the music, the meaning, and the charming nature of the group.

The Arashi fangirls all have their own reasons for loving the group, and undoubtedly, part of that reason is due to their striking features, but Arashi also possesses the unique nature of not being just randomly pieced together by their agency, as they were friends as trainees, and their care for each other and comfort level around each other never fails to show through. They have charm, charisma, and an honest warmness and aura that translates to the viewers, a sight not often seen within idol groups today.

And that's truly the perfect reasons for us to never stop lovin them =)

highlights of Arashi

I'm pretty sure you guys are informed about all this. but, I'm gonna post it anyway :)

Johnny's Countdown 2010-2011

Arashi couldnt make it for the entire show but they were breadcasted live from NHK rooftop to performed :) YAY to NHK

Jaa peopleee! :)





I know, I know I wasnt around after SPM shizz is over. and I know I do not have any particular reasons for it so I'm really sorry. I'll try my best to update as often as I can okay? :)

soooooooo. I wanted to post about their latest news like their performances in Kouhaku and Johhny's Countdown, Aiba's upcoming drama ; Bartender (OMG) and stuff,

but mehh. let us relax our mind and read their amazingly sweet messages to each other in Non-no magazine okay? :)

Non-no Magaine 02.2011

In year 2010, we ran with all our might, and rested a little. It was a year wherein we did our work in a fresh pace.

Message from Jun to the members for the year 2010, and also for 2011

To Nino

Thank you very much for this year as well. I wonder if this one year is a movie year for you. Following "Ohoku", I'm also looking forward to "GANTZ". I also expect greatly of you in variety shows and talks! Lately, there's a rumor that you're engrossed with electronic drums, does it mean that in 2011 you'll be active in the musical scene as well?!

To Sho-kun

Thank you very much for this year as well. It was a year wherein you flourish more and more as a caster. I also learn many things as I watch "NEWS ZERO". Everytime there are words or information I cannot understand, I'm grateful that you properly tell me about it! Please stay as the intelligent Sho-kun in 2011 as well.

To Aiba-kun

Thank you very much for this year as well. When we're together, I feel that you always give me energy. It's also impressive everytime I see you memorize the dance steps with utmost efforts (laughs). You became able to make cocktails lately. Next time, please tell me your recommended liqour! Let's drink together in 2011!

To Leader

Thank you very much for this year as well. Your arms extend in your drama "Kaibutsu-kun", but can you still do that even now (laughs)? You're still engrossed in fishing like always during your private time. "Fishing Leader" is fine but it's nice if I can see a "Drawing/painting Leader" in 2011.


I wonder if I matured a little this year 2010? But I feel like nothing changed at all (laughs)

Message from Satoshi to the members for the year 2010, and also for 2011

To Nino

You often touch my butt during concerts and in the midst of TV recordings (laughs). For some reason, my energy quickly rises whenever you touch it, and the feeling of not wanting to be touched once more doesn't come out~
Please continue to touch my butt in 2011, too (laughs).

To Sho-kun

During our concerts rehearsals for Kokuritsu last summer, it left an impression on me as I saw you apply lotion desperately to prevent yourself from getting tanned. But your skin ended up getting tanned anyway. As expected, summer is about getting tanned. In 2011, Sho-kun should be bold as well and enter the "dark-skinned group" in Arashi~!

To Aiba-chan

We promised to drink together in Ginza this year, yet our schedules won't match. It's unfortunate that we weren't able to work it out. But I already researched a restaurant, so let's go this time in 2011. Look forward to an 'adult time'!

To Matsujun

In the summer of 2010, you geared with all your might in your drama "Natsu no Koi wa niji iro ni kagayaku". You did your best in the midst of the hot weather... Ah, exactly at that time, it was your birthday, and I haven't given you any present yet! Please wait a little longer, I'll properly buy one in 2011 for sure (laughs).


The five of us challenged new things. 2010 was a year wherein we properly laughed and had fun.

2010, and also for 2011

To Nino

Actually, I played once in a baseball tournament this year. Though you're my teammate, I wasn't able to invite you since you're busy. But you know, sorry, it was extremely fun (laughs)! We lost in the end, so let's certainly get a revenge in 2011. I'll definitely call you next time, so let's do our best!

To Sho-chan

You buy presents for all of us everytime you travel or go to locations. Thank you for the many cute things you gave in 2010! I'm sorry that I wasn't able to give you anything in return but...(if) you're going to travel more in 2011, buy us more presents, okay! (laughs).

To Leader

The two of us drinking together in a hotel room during our concerts is a good memory. I always treasure the moments when I'm talking with you. Privately, you tanned a lot in 2010 (laughs)! I want you to teach me about fishing in 2011. Next time, do invite me ♪ and take me to the ocean of a well-known place ♪

To Matsujun

If you say 2010 for Matsujun, it's the drama "Natsu no Koi wa Niji iro ni kagayaku". In the last episode, when I saw the relationship of the two of you, it gave me a very positive feeling. Lately, every time we have a concert in an area, you search for a good restaurant for us to eat together. In 2011 year again, I'll be anticipating for delicious information!


Even time adds up, one year passed by in an instant. Perhaps it means that 2010 was fulfilling as well.

Message from Sho to the members for the year 2010, and also for 2011

To Nino

Nino's 2010 was filled with movie filmings. When the filming of "Ohoku" in Kyoto finished, you bought T-shirts for us as presents in the midst of your busy schedule. I am pleased with the T-shirts and pickled food. "GANTZ" opens in 2011. I'm also a fan of the original work, so I'll be looking forward to its public screening!

To Aiba-chan

Thank you for letting me steal your excellent fashion sense in "Himitsu no Arashi-chan!" Clothes Coordinator Contest Special (laughs). Thanks to that strategy that I won magnificently ♪ In 2011 as well, I'll be called the 'master' of fashion!

To Satoshi-kun

If you say 2010 for Satoshi-kun, as expected, it reminds me of the drama "Kaibutsu-kun" ! At that time, you effortly gave me a set of "Kaibutsu-kun goods". Thank you for those. I fully used a member's special privilege~ (laughs). In 2011, will I be able to give something in any a return?

To Matsujun

It's something that happens every year and I'm very grateful that you think and direct for the contents of our concerts. Especially this year 2010, since you had a hard schedule for the filming of your drama "Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku", it might've been really hectic for you. Let's do our best in 2011 as well!


2010 is a year wherein I "talked" a lot. In 2011 as well, I'll set my engine in full throttle!

Message from Kazunari to the members for the year 2010, and also for 2011

To Sho-chan

You starred in the drama "Tokujo Kabachi!!", and also served as the caster for Vancouver Olympics. When I look back, especially at the start of 2010, you were extremely busy. You are really an amazing man. In 2011 as well, please continue to run through!

To Aiba-chan

Your smile in 2010 was lovely as well. I want you to keep smiling brightly like always in 2011. I spent a long time for my movie filmings so I don't know about played in a baseball match?! I certainly want to join next time! First of all, let's do our best in practicing (laughs).

To Leader

Leader, you did your best in fishing in 2010, didn't you? In 2011 as well, I want you make your private life complete with that energy! Your work too...well, of course, did fine. From here on, just by doing the things you want, you will surely shine (smile)!

To Jun-kun

Good work on your drama "Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku"! How was the filming site with Takeuchi Yuuko-san, whom I admire?! I was happy that I was able to worked with you a little in the last episode. In 2011 as well, please show your charms with a work that won't lose to that!
