Title: Did you know... ?
Post by: xiaowanzi on November 13, 2005, 02:05:31 AM
Hmmm... i was thinking of having a did you know section here.

I believe that we could have read something about our stormy boys some more which others may not.
Let's share and even discuss them here.

Let me start e ball rolling.

1. Did you know that Sho was the one who came up with the lyrics (rap lyrics) to La Tormenta, La Tormenta 2004 & many rap lyrics of Arashi's songs?

2. Did you know that Jun has got a lot of leg hair that sometimes, photo shoots of him in shorts needs to be edited?

3. Did you know that Nino gave Aiba a name called Fumio? I don't know the reason though.

Can't think of more for now. Will post when it comes to my mind   :wth:


EDIT: The name Fumio is written as kanji "文男". I got this information from 2002 Feb's Wink Up. In the interview with Jun, he mentioned that this name was given to Aiba by Nino.

Then in Sho's interview, he said that it was due to earlier, the 5 of them went to watch Backstreet's Boys concert. During the end of the show when they were leaving for their dinner, Ohno suddenly called Jun "Junji 潤次". Then I (Sho) don't know why Nino suddenly replied "Let's call Aiba Fumio then".

Sho then continue to mention that ever since Nino gave him that name (during that period), Aiba will be super genki when someone calls him Fumio.

hm...i knew something but i'm not sure it is real or not...ah well...might just put it here  :blink1:

Its from Iza Now Concert 2004
1. Nino-sama solo [Konseki] was written and composed by him.
2. Jun-sama solo [LA FAMILIA] was written by him.
3. The dance for Ohno-sama solo [Top secret] was choreograph by him

Johnny junior rules
1. official website cannot put Johnny Junior member picture in website [coz of that we cannot see Jun-sama pic in HYD official website]
2. if the member of Johnny Junior are in public...if there are fans come and approach them, if they used japanesse Johnny junior member should ignore them so they will not create a caos. [my oppinion: its a wierd regulation, but i think its good for me coz i cannot speak or read japanesse...hehehehe  :heehee:

please correct me if there are mistake... :x):

eh :duh: didn't understand... :sob: so if you are japanese and you ran into any Johnny Junior they will ignore them???? :?: :?:
i guess that's good for me since i'm not japanse or speak japanese very well.... but i guess that's bad for me cuz i can't comunicate with them.



guys i have a question..... IS IT TRUE THAT ONE OF THE JOHNNY JUNIORS CANNOT HAVE GIRLFRIENDS???and that aiba was almost "fired" because he had one and she posted some pictures of them on the internet????
is just that my friend was reading Aiba's thread in Jdorama... and she commented that to me.... :diao:  is it true??????

IS IT TRUE???? :?: :?:

2. Did you know that Jun has got a lot of leg hair that sometimes, photo shoots of him in shorts needs to be edited?

so desu ne?

actually, it's not that they can't have gf's, but they can't have public gf's because they are "owned" by the fans (which is really illogical if you ask me). there's no such thing as owning someone no matter how deeply indebted you are with them.

the articles i've read about kitagawa-san makes me furious. i see him as a very despicable, big monster, stripping a boy's innocence, childhood and everything that defines him and making him the boy kitagawa wants him to be so he could make big bucks. i don't know if it's the works of the authors using words such as "factory of boys", even so, there is a thick line between legal rights and human rights. anyway, sorry for venting. i know there might be flaws in the articles but, who knows right? since no one can mess with kitagawa in japan, right?

articles:
http://nippop.com/features/feature_id-33/
http://metropolis.japantoday.com/biginjapanarchive249/243/biginjapaninc.htm
http://www.japan-zone.com/modern/johnnys.shtml

*ok maybe owned is a strong word since it's not in the article; more like "available to fans".  :wth2: Well, you know what, even if Arashi has girlfriends I don't give a hoot cuz let's face it, it's a one in a bizillion chance geting with those guys. it's not happening. it ain't gonna happen this lifetime. just be happy that they give off happiness.

Ok I think altho the articles make Johnny to be a monster and molestor, he is the one that managed to produce all these boy bands for us to love.

I mean, without him Johnny's jimusho, there will be no arashi, kinki kids, kat-tun etc...

And...Sho-kun could just be your normal college grad working in some company, lost in the sea of workers during lunchtime in Central tokyo and Ri-da could be a struggling artist trying to get people to buy his paintings...  :heehee: Aiba could just be helping out at his family's restaurant and Nino and Matsujun, well...... i don't know where they would be. Bottom line would be :  What a waste of such "beautifuru bishonen faces"....

Plus I think Johnny's does really put in a lot of money to train these guys up...

so altho its bad to work them so hard, I think its payoff them for the guy and if their air time is increased, as fans we cannot complain too much..... :heehee:

and as Erica says, just be happy that they give off happiness....

wow. i read the articles  thank you eria. 
they were really interesting, i think i don't like that johnny... i do thank him for letting me know about arashi.. but i mean the boys need a life ne??? :duh: :duh:

i hope none of the arashi members were "molested" by that guy.... :sweat:....

"Johnny's gay activities and his own sexual molestation by Johnny and other idols...Johnny of abusing his prodigies, claiming he had witnessed boys being raped in the dormitory"- oh my holy cow!  :wth2: :diao: doesnt this sound similar to the whole michael jackson thing?


i really do hope its just a bad rumor though.

im just thankful for having Arashi <3 & i hope nothing like that has happened to them.   :acute:

I only read the last post now, cuz I'm about to leave for class, but I wanted to say that Mr. JOHNNY is - wether happly or not - married and has some chirldren (I think daughters, if I remember correctly) I once saw a pic of them and it seems that he isn't gay or molesting his juniors!

He was rumored to be gay, becasue ppl talking about his good choice of 'future handsome boys' when taking them into his agency! Press said that he MUST be gay for being able to pick pretty boys with potential as his stars! At least that's one of the reasons for these rumors!
I don't think that the boys would really STAY at JE if there was some molesting and raping going on!
They can quit their contract, Smap is trying to leave JE as I've hread of a relyable Smap fan source!

Another did you know post... :?:

Well, did you know that Nino's back hunching problem was so very very bad in e past. It only got slightly better as he grows up..

His mother was so worried about him hunching that she bought him a back straightener... which is supposed to support his back and make him sit up straight and all... it costed her quite a lot of $$$

But in e end, they didn't use the straightener. Cos' they couldn't read e manual..

 :(

A little something here again.

Well, have u watch Arashi performing e song "A day in our life" before? Did you notice that in the beginning of the song, they would form a circle and cheer before starting e performance?

Well that is because that song is e theme song Sho's drama "Kisarazu Cat's Eye" and each time b4 e boys go on a "mission", they would crowd together n form a circle... cheer their slogan out loud before they head out...

Interesting?  :?:

Now here come's something good XD I wonder if you guys realised it.

I just started watching Jun's Kindaichi series. If you watched episode 4, the mystery of the Black Death Butterfly, you will notice something very obvious. The Butterfly Manor, is actually THE SAME HOUSE as Domyouji's house in HYD!! It is IMPOSSIBLE to mistake it XD. Our Jun has returned to that house in which he acted in a few years ago. XD

This is from my own observation really, if there is anybody else saying it on the internet, then I have not seen it. ~_~

And here (http://www.youtube.com/w/Sho-shows-his-bottom-%28HANKETSU%29%21%21?v=kHa0HY4fLoE&search=sho%20show) is the vid on You Tube....

Actually I think he had (and still has) a really nicely shaped back, and ... khm.... rear O////O
But that's only my opinion....

And as for the did you know section:
Did you know that Sho is bilingual?
After getting a Uni Degree in Economics he thought about going on history becouse he loves history very much?
Did you know that the only thing Ohno buys for himself is his art supplies? (Everything else is bought by his mom O_o)
Did you know Aiba had a pneumothorax-shock during a TVshow?
Did you know Nino stayed up for 3 days in a row just to compose music than a nother 3 days to play a game?
Did you know that Jun is nearsighted and Ohno is farsighted and they wear contacts?
Did you know ohno sees ghost sometimes? >_<

Did you know some KAT-TUN fans are harassing Arashi and want to try to kill them on their concerts? O_o

(weeeeell, maybe these were not new to you. Sorry bout' that)

And um, a question, this was mentioned earlier, but don't knwo if I understood correctly.

Does anyone know any other rules concerning JEs?

eh :duh: didn't understand... :sob: so if you are japanese and you ran into any Johnny Junior they will ignore them???? :?: :?:
i guess that's good for me since i'm not japanse or speak japanese very well.... but i guess that's bad for me cuz i can't comunicate with them.


guys i have a question..... IS IT TRUE THAT ONE OF THE JOHNNY JUNIORS CANNOT HAVE GIRLFRIENDS???and that aiba was almost "fired" because he had one and she posted some pictures of them on the internet????
is just that my friend was reading Aiba's thread in Jdorama... and she commented that to me.... :diao:  is it true??????

IS IT TRUE???? :?: :?:

hehe..sorry, maybe my explanation a bit dodgy...coz i dont really understand it my self  :heehee:...naaah....its okay if you are japanesse...its just you are not allowed and will be ignored if you use japanesse language when you approach them...so even if you are japanesse...use english when you talk to Johnny junior member...[althou i'm not sure they understand english or not >.< hehehe -but i'm sure sho sakurai-sama have a great english skills  :cute:]


I'd like to get Jun to ask me : Do you speak Japanese?

And I'll be like...gomen nasai, iie...err...nihon-go...wakarimasen!!!!

and he'll be like....bye..

ok that was a bad joke. sorry. but it's a tad ridiculous that they are stuck in the typically-under-managements-strict-rule-for-boybands policy.

yes JE boys can have girlfriends, dey just have a little more strict rules than us mere mortals. what would i do to be Aiba (or) Sho girlfriend? Anythin' **wishful thinkin' there**  :diao: but wouldn't it be nice tho. :love:

whoo... O_O" I've just read in a magazine translation that Sho said that his first love was a Hungarian girl!...
A gaijin...
Woow.
(Not to mention that I'm a hungarian too, so it means a LOT to me! My icon loving someone from my SMALL country... I'm shocked to death >_<)

Post by: sakuranoarashi on February 28, 2006, 07:23:39 AM
Its so interesting that his first love was a foreigner, ne? (kinda gives me hope, lol) Thats really cool that you're hungarian as well *wishes she was hungarian* jk....but ive heard that he always talks about her whenever love is brought up. I was reading another interview with sho and he mentioned her there as well....hmmmm :duh:

The interview is from myojo 200603 and i read it from this person on lj who posts alot of translations and pictures of arashi on her joural, but you have to friend her first sine she gets permission to post alot of the stuff. Her username is Fybabe and i think the interview was one of her most recent posts, it'll have a pic of sho with it  :)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Makichan on February 28, 2006, 08:33:36 AM
Yeah, I read both of the articles where Sho mentions the hungarian girl... that's a good sign for us foreigners then!! Maybe if Sho is okay with foreigners, the other 4 are too? :blink: (Hahaha, wishful thinking.) I wonder why now all of a sudden Sho is bringing her up... I don't think he ever mentioned her before? :duh: Hm...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: sakuranoarashi on February 28, 2006, 10:35:55 AM
I hade the same exact wishful thinking Makichan! At least Sho seems to like foreigners even if the others may perfer a japanese girl. And he can always convince them otherwise, ne? lol my fantasies are running off with me...*sigh*

Ive only seen her mentioned in those two interviews but Ive heard she was mentioned before and that he mentions her alot *shrugs* i dunno...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Makichan on February 28, 2006, 01:26:21 PM
Yeah, I haven't read too many of the magazine interviews, so it's possible that he's mentioned her before... Hmm, I'm kind of curious now!! :haha: But I think that if Sho likes foreigners the others probably don't mind them either... We can only hope. :naughty:

Post by: gemplee on February 28, 2006, 03:06:24 PM
Did the others ever say that they only liked Jap girls? Well, according to my logic, unless they've specifically said that they only like Jap girls then i'll just take it that they're open to any nationality/race!  :whistling:  lol

Issit the one about Aiba collapsing, and was sent to hospital and had to do an operation? And if it is, I hope someone can upload the clip of it on YouTube, if there is any...
Yup, it is that part. it is HERE (http://youtube.com/w/Aiba-chan-Collapses-%3D%28?v=0Rmt7tPqGX0&search=aiba%20faints) on you tube. It is cut out from an USO JAPAN part.

I don't think that's the one...this is a different one...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: silverfa on March 05, 2006, 09:21:53 PM
Hmmm...what I've heard was that Nino and Aiba already stopped smoking^^ (don't remember where - short memory -.-;;)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: juliah on March 16, 2006, 02:55:04 PM
just my 2cents.

yeah. the USO clip... that's not the one. it happened when they were filming the How's it going con dvd. i don't think they showed him fainting. it talked more about how aiba felt about the situation. but if there are clips on that, it would be great to share.

the USO clip was when he was disturbed by some supernatural forces. it got a lil too much for aiba.

as for the smoking issue... ma ma~ if you have any thoughts about going to nippon, then you'd just have to put up with it. it is a cultural difference. with regards to the boys, its a known fact that nino smokes. aiba was caught on camera recently, but i've no pictures to show and he did mention that he was gonna quit. well, we can only hope he does! if otherwise, we can't say much about it too rite? i do think the other 3 smokes too. tho not on a regular basis.

as for gf. sigh. they are hot blooded males. i'd so love to see them get involved. from some discussions with friends, we suspect that nino, ohno and jun is involved with someone.

and yeah. i do think SMAP is leaving. given the fact that they never appear on any Countdown anymore or any MAJOR jyannis event. personally, i do hope ARASHI gets to leave jyannis, or least be on a standalone contract. which means... i would hope that they get as HUGE AS SMAP.

(^A^)Y


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: sakuranoarashi on March 17, 2006, 05:43:58 AM
on the gf issue i read somewhere (cant remember where sorry) that nino and sho have girlfriends, one of them for  a couple of years and i also heard that jun broke up with his gf. It could just be rumors but i thought i'd share  :dunno1:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: amayume on April 24, 2006, 07:17:48 AM
yeah, also read about that thing with sho. it's kinda sad though cause they are still humans after all. its the stigma attached about a really popular celebrity having a relationship with other people that makes it harder...add to that the *rules* that Johnny Kitagawa has imposed...so its kinda hard for them to have girlfriends.it's a sad thing, but we should be really grateful to how much these boys have to sacrifice just to make us  happy.  :gd:

Ah, actually japanese ppl don't show their relationships to others O_O"

Someone was asking about the guys smoking, well you can see Jun smoke in Tokyo Tower... Can't say I really like it...  does look kinda wrong on him. :sob:

Oh and did you know that AIBA has some kind of birthmark on his left shoulder/arm.  It could be a burn also.  I have a pic if anyone wants to see.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: merkuryo on May 03, 2006, 04:47:04 PM
not sure if it's been said here before but nino smokes too.. thus the dark gums.. and aiba's birthmark/burn could be seen in some concert footages.. i thought it was a tattoo when i first saw it.. hehe.. silly me..

Ummm... never saw a man with a pierced navel before, but it is indeed sexy...  However, Aiba's earring is sexier. LOL :cute:

this thread is fun to read...hum~ gotta go find more funny info to put in here~

I remember last early this year or last year Aiba-chan said he quit smoking in his radio show which is HAPPY to hear that...and I'm REALLY surprise to see that KT fans wanna kill ppl just becoz they dun support them....omg...that's really horrible... :diao:

Do you know: Nino brings his PS2 with him to the concert and play Taiko no tatsujin during break time and other members had complain it is way too noisy to play in the room.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: lady_gemma on May 27, 2006, 12:30:18 AM
If you watch the Iza, Now tour you can see Aiba's mark on his arm...he also has a large tattoo of "arashi" on his right arm :D.

Sho has his belly button pierced, and apparently so does Yamapi. 

Nino smokes like a chimney, and Aiba recently quit :D  Smoking is a normal thing in japan (as much as H!P got on Aibon about it), and as  long as you are 20+ they don't care.  Also, while the rate of lung cancer IS growing in Japan, for being one of the highest smoking populations they have LESS occurences of lung cancer than America, which I've heard is because of the massive ammounts of antioxidants in fish and tea. 

About Aiba being drunk and saying "yay"  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_m_R2maooEo  <-- anyone else think they are smashed here?

MatsuJun- "Minna GENKI!!! GENKI!!!" *facepalm*


And Sho on the horse- boy needs to put his feet back in the stirrup, that horse even gets to a trot and he's going to loose it....BALLS OF YOUR FEET SHO!!! Other than that his lines arn't TOO bad lol :D

I don't think they're wasted on this, I think they just are really really REALLY tired.  You know how it is when people are tired, someone starts something and everyone follows.  Aiba says he's tired in the video. :inlove:

This video is one of my fav. on youtube, I watch it when I'm depressed, lol

I love the "Aiba Masaki desu" at 500 mph.... that boy on crack.

I think it had to be after a concert or something, I'd wouldn't want to be that bus driver though.... well...yes, I would, but that's another story LOL.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: kanmuri on May 27, 2006, 11:47:52 AM
The "AIba Masaki desu!" part is funny because Nino asks AIba  "What is your name?" and then Aiba replies "AIba Masaki desu!"  THEN Nino asks: "What are you in charge of?"  And Aiba replies "Aiba Masaki desu!"  again.

The best part is when they play hide and seek with Aiba yelling "I was found! I was found!" hysterically. :rlol:

Post by: arwenna on June 02, 2006, 07:32:59 AM
kanmuri,

example of guessing and rumour mongering is "were they wasted (drunk) or do they smoke like chimneys". another example was "Aiba have an Arashi tattoo on his right arm". that is obviously untrue, that Arashi "tattoo" was a temporary stick on or a drawn character.

so, do make sure it's a fact first before posting. if you want to gush about any of the guys, you can do so in their own particular thread.

i hope that is clear for you.

Ok I think altho the articles make Johnny to be a monster and molestor, he is the one that managed to produce all these boy bands for us to love.

I mean, without him Johnny's jimusho, there will be no arashi, kinki kids, kat-tun etc...

And...Sho-kun could just be your normal college grad working in some company, lost in the sea of workers during lunchtime in Central tokyo and Ri-da could be a struggling artist trying to get people to buy his paintings...  :heehee: Aiba could just be helping out at his family's restaurant and Nino and Matsujun, well...... i don't know where they would be. Bottom line would be :  What a waste of such "beautifuru bishonen faces"....

Plus I think Johnny's does really put in a lot of money to train these guys up...

so altho its bad to work them so hard, I think its payoff them for the guy and if their air time is increased, as fans we cannot complain too much..... :heehee:

and as Erica says, just be happy that they give off happiness....

i really agree with you. we have to be grateful for johnny because he created all this happiness for us. without him, Arashi wouldn't exist and i would be sad. ;-;

did you know that Jun went to Taiwan on June 10, 2006 to give an award out with Rainie Yang ((haha she has the same last name as me)) in the Golden Melody Awards.

Arashi is going to have a concert in Mid-Sept in Taiwan. ((woot woot! i have a slight chance of going if my parents allow me to stay in taiwan longer)).

The way I feel it is about the Johnny's dating thingy is that they are allowed to do so after a certain period, probably depending on their age, popularity of the group and so on.  Anyway this is just a supposition and I doubt Arashi even have the time to date lately, they see to be pretty busy all the time. Closing this off topic statement.

Oguri Shun got the role as Rui in HyD only because Matsujun said that he wouldn't do it if Shun didn't play Rui.

Jun likes harry Potter.

Jun is the first male Japanese person to make it on the cover of japanese Marie Clarie magazine.

In 2nd grade Jun ran out into the middle of the street and was hit by a van O.O and he was i njured, however when the EMTs got there he apologising to his uncle and saying how naughty it was of him to run out into the street.  How Junish.

(All about Jun I know heehee)

I have one for Aiba today, sorry 1624...

This is from the MC part in there tour i think the 7/30 one...Aiba likes to invade other members showers at random.  They say it used to freak them out but now it doesn't.  Also sho has started to invade Aibas shower after shows. KAWAII!

Jun trivia time!

Jun used to sing in the shower but has stopped recently.  Arashi said that he used to sing and the stop and mumble to himself about how bad his voice was...hugs to Jun your voice is not bad, I LOVE IT!

(All from the MC part of the Arashic tour)

Wow...sugeee..you guys are trully Arashian!!!!

btw, got it from the new animonster magz...

Jun got 5 turtles from Nino in his 17th birthday as a gift, and then he gave one of the turtle back to Nino in Nino's 20th bday...

How sweet.... :love:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Ganki on August 25, 2006, 08:26:18 AM
K, Juu-Chan it id ^-^

More did you know stuff all about HyD things:

The only reasons Oguri recieved the part of Rui in HyD was because of Matsu saying if Shun-kun didn't get the part than he wouldn't be in HyD!  Thank you matsu ^-^  Matsu said that "Shun-Kun" was one of his best friends back from Gokusen days and wouldn't feel comfortable if he didn't get the role.

Also the ONLY reason Arashi releashed the single "WISH" is because of HyD/Matsu if there was no HyD then there would have been no WISH!

^_^  Just for you information.

(This is taken from the secret talks, interviews, and junified)

Adez-chan, you are already bought the animoster?! waa~~Is it full of Arashi? *it's impossible nee? lol just want to said it*

*sigh happily* I feel glad Tsukasa's role was acted by Jun. So, we can hear "WISH"!! lol And didn't you think that the story in WISH was same as Tsukasa's story in HYD? Or is it me just being paranoid?

Did you know:

Jun had always wanted to be in jhonny's since he was young becoz of kinki kidz . And on the day he graduated from primary school , he gathered all his courage and send his biodata to Jhonny.Omg!!!little jun is soo brave!!!

Little Nino didn't have any intention to join jhonny's in the first place , it was his cousin who sent his biodatas . and he didn't want to go to the audition at first , but changed his mind after his mum promised him 5000yen :diao:

Ohno was suppossed to have a solo carrer , but then jhonny changed his mind and put him in arashi . and before that he was one of the candidates for V6 , but he did not get in coz he can't play volly :sweat:

Sho's first love was a hungarian.

Aiba's lung was damaged becoz he blow too much saxophone.


i knew all this from animons


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: 1624 on August 26, 2006, 08:32:53 PM
Nino-kun, you shouldn't do something because of money :diao:

And I give two thumbs for little brave Jun :gd: :gd: Jun, you deserved to got it!


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Ganki on August 27, 2006, 02:38:46 AM
AWWW thank you for the info, i didn't know the one about Nino.  All the reasons fit their personalities!

Thank GOD Ohno didn't get the solo career and joined Arashi instead.  Arashi w/ no Riida would just be wrong!

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Ganki on August 27, 2006, 11:27:03 AM
I don't think it was all because of the sax.  It is also an illness he contracted which caused the lung failure.  It can also be brought on by to much stress.  It isn't just the sax because it is an illness not an injury really...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: flori_L on August 27, 2006, 07:41:07 PM
yup , i don't think it was just the sax too.

But did you know that nino's left arm was injured when he was a junior , so that's why he ussually use headset imstead of mic in the concerts . His hand is not strong enough to hold a mic for too long.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: 1624 on August 27, 2006, 07:44:20 PM
oww~~poor Nino-kun :tflow: *massaging Nino-kun's hand carefully* daijoubu desu~~ :acute:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Ganki on August 28, 2006, 12:17:35 AM
*hugs to Nino* Another reason he did not use a handheld one in Iza Now was because he broke one of the bones in his hand, don't know which one, which made it even harder to grip and mike.  *you can see the bandage on his thumb when you look on the DVD*  I think, if i remember, it was a bad fall that happened in a rehesal pre-concert.  Don't know if that is correct, but I think so.  If any one can confirm or disprove please do!

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: 1624 on August 28, 2006, 07:34:14 PM
I think Jun-kun and Sho-kun were catholic. Didn't know much either~~


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Denise_Dinc on August 28, 2006, 08:04:56 PM
Ooh~ Catholics... Didn't know that one. Does that mean they're quite charismatic too? Sorry, don't know much about Catholics, I'm a Christian. Heh... Sumimasen.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Denise_Dinc2 on August 31, 2006, 04:10:20 PM
Yeah, I was wondering where this info came from... Cause celebrities are not supposed to aanounce their religion, just in case some fanatic fans join the religion because of their idols or something...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: mjzanne0529 on August 31, 2006, 09:17:49 PM
really? i haven't thought about that thing... even if they change religion at this very moment, if they are destined not to meet or even see their idols, they can't do anything...

yeah, i thought so too... it's so over already as in OA if they change their religion because it's the religion of their idols,....

cheap answer....they're overreacting already,..that's not the proper way to idolize idols. haha

so that's why it's like a confidential something?

Post by: rikaku on September 02, 2006, 12:16:54 AM
I also think that most Japanese believe in the Shinto religion haha.

Dear fellow arashians,

I've checked the web. There is no indication of what religion our boys believe in. So kindly read the posts with caution.

Next, i would like to highlight that this is a "Did You Know" post, let's not go off-topic by discussing stuffs like rumours etc...
We can alwayz discuss about arashi in the Arashi thread ne!!  :saycheese:

Lastly, thanks minna for all e interesting contributions... it's getting more fun in here!!
And now, u guys really got me curious in arashi's religion~!  lol


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: 1624 on September 03, 2006, 10:29:20 AM

Title: Re: Did you know... ?

it's funny to imagine that nino's howling and aiba's grinding his teeth....
in the middle of the night...

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: 1624 on September 05, 2006, 07:28:55 PM
Yes, it is true. Nino always howl in the middle of the night if he lost when playing game. If I didn't take it wrong, it's Jun who say that lol He tell everyone that he can't sleep whenever he stays in the same room with Nino and Aiba because Nino will howl and Aiba will grind his teeth :sweat:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: adez on September 10, 2006, 10:56:02 AM
Poor Jun...
btw, jun also said in an interview that he can't stand stay in a room with nino becoz nino like to walk all around the room naked before taking a bath...

Okay now onto to some did you know stuff.  I think like 3 days ago Sho and Nino were filming an episode of G no Arashi *i think the special* and they were playing w/ fireworks (10,000 fireworks)  Well they were letting them off and the people in the city saw all the smoke and had NO CLUE what was going on.  So they called they fire department and reported a fire.  Well the firemen got there and realized it was only smoke from the fireworks.  Nino and Sho + Fireworks = Only problems.  lol jk.  Thought people would be amused by that!

Did you know that Sho has a brother who is 13 years younger than him.  He does not call him, "Oniichan", he calls him "Sho-san".  After Kisarazu Cat's Eye came out, his little brother started calling him "Bambi".   (This is from Wikipedia.)

I know his brother's younger than him by 13 years, but I didn't know about the 'Bambi' thingy... I guess most siblings don't regard each other as 'sis, bro' that kind of thing anymore... they'd rather call each other by names ne~

that Jun did not care much about his high school examination, but Sho advised him to be more concerned about it.  In the end, Jun ended up going and graduating from a very prestigious high school in Tokyo.

Wow...Kakoi ne Jun-kun! Is Horikoshi  a prestigous high school there ne knickcam-chan? I look for it in the internet and the school seems like schools for most of celebrities ne~


Ah, did you know that Aiba and Sho is closer now?
They've ever been forecasted to be close eachother but they never believe it until now...hehe

that Sho cannot do a back handspring, but when asked, he replies, "I can do it, I just don't do it."  Ohno said that he did see Sho do a back handspring once and he looked like a frog.

Ophiuchus is a star constellation. Read more about it here: http://starryskies.com/The_sky/constellations/serpens.html

Post by: takahashi_sumire09 on October 07, 2006, 06:17:43 PM
i searched about ophiuchus also and it says that it is a large constellation of the equatorial region located between Hercules and Scorpius but it doesn't make sense if someone called another one by this word.....right?so i was thinking maybe it isn't the right definition i'm searching.... :/


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

not really sure about what it's mean...but i found out from wiki this particular sentence

Quote
One intriguing explanation is that Ophiuchus is an avatar for Cernunnos, the Celtic serpent-bearing god who is also the basis for our modern image of the devil.

Definition of Ophiuchus (as taken from Wikipedia:
Quote
Ophiuchus (IPA: /ˌəʊfiˈjuːkəs, ˌɒf-/), sometimes refered to as Serpentarius, is one of the 88 constellations... It is a large constellation located in the southern hemisphere near the center of the Milky Way, between Scorpius to the west and Sagittarius to the east. Of the 13 zodiacal constellations (constellations that contain the Sun during the course of the year), Ophiuchus is the only one which is not counted as an astrological sign — see below for more information.

Ophiuchus is depicted as a man supporting a serpent; the interposition of his body divides the snake into two parts, "Serpens Caput" and "Serpens Cauda", which are nonetheless counted as one constellation.

Quote
...The reason that Ophiuchus is not a part of the western astrological zodiac is because that zodiac is defined on unscientific basis of the sun spending an equal amount of time in twelve astrological signs starting at the vernal equinox in the northern hemisphere — this is called the "Tropical Zodiac". There is also a "Sidereal Zodiac", which is based on the actual location of the stars in the sky, and which is used by Hindu and some Western astrologers. At present, the sun is in Ophiuchus from November 30 to December 17.

For more information please visit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ophiuchus


how this relates to Ninomiya-sama...i'm not entirely sure, but i'm guessing that the kohai called his senpai that because he thinks that Ninomiya-sama has multiple personalities...so he could fit a little bit of each of the Astrology signs. or maybe he thinks that Ninomiya -sama is so unique that he is way off the charts...hmmm..i'm just making a guess in the dark here.

Many of you know that Nino is a man of many talents, like being able to write with both hands (due to an injury of his left hand) and he can play almost any instrument. He is also clever in the kitchen. However, do any of you know that his dad is a chef?!  :?:

- And that they had a pretty tough time convincing the Osaka officials that it was perfectly safe to use the stage, and it was only decided upon a day before the concert?
- that this moving stage is now a trademark of a Johnny's concert? (Used by Kinki Kids and during the year-end countdown)
- that this moving stage was used by TVXQ (a popular Korean boyband), after it was used by Arashi during their Korea con? (Credits to arashi.vox.com)

2. if the member of Johnny Junior are in public...if there are fans come and approach them, if they used japanesse Johnny junior member should ignore them so they will not create a caos. [my oppinion: its a wierd regulation, but i think its good for me coz i cannot speak or read japanesse...hehehehe  :heehee:

eh :duh: didn't understand... :sob: so if you are japanese and you ran into any Johnny Junior they will ignore them???? :?: :?:
i guess that's good for me since i'm not japanse or speak japanese very well.... but i guess that's bad for me cuz i can't comunicate with them.



guys i have a question..... IS IT TRUE THAT ONE OF THE JOHNNY JUNIORS CANNOT HAVE GIRLFRIENDS???and that aiba was almost "fired" because he had one and she posted some pictures of them on the internet????
is just that my friend was reading Aiba's thread in Jdorama... and she commented that to me.... :diao:  is it true??????

IS IT TRUE???? :?: :?:

i just feel like want to reply this hehe...
i alsp heard from my senpai that Jhonny's boys should have GF or someting. they're all boys.. i mean.. most of their fans are girls right? having a GF mayeb will affect their popularity and carrier..
and also, it would be hard for their GF, with reporters or fans following them around when they're dating... at least that's what i think...
even if they have GF, they might be keep her off-public...

I don't mind! :)

more info:

-Did you know that they started calling Ohno as Captain because during one of Johnny's annual year-end countdown, they realized that there are a lot of riidas backstage, which was quite confusing.  :laugh2:  As such, they started calling Riida, "Captain!" (though I still hear he word Riida more often than Captain) (btw, I read this in one translation, I forgot where ><; gome ne to whoever translated it!)

-Did you know that in Wish Secret Talk 2005, our boys "wished" that they'd have a year full of concerts and that they'd be able to hold concerts in other countries too?

What's amazing is that in hindsight, all of their *wishes* in that secret talk indeed came true barely a year after!  :yahoo:

IS IT TRUE???? :?: :?:

actually, it's not that they can't have gf's, but they can't have public gf's because they are "owned" by the fans (which is really illogical if you ask me). there's no such thing as owning someone no matter how deeply indebted you are with them.

the articles i've read about kitagawa-san makes me furious. i see him as a very despicable, big monster, stripping a boy's innocence, childhood and everything that defines him and making him the boy kitagawa wants him to be so he could make big bucks. i don't know if it's the works of the authors using words such as "factory of boys", even so, there is a thick line between legal rights and human rights. anyway, sorry for venting. i know there might be flaws in the articles but, who knows right? since no one can mess with kitagawa in japan, right?

articles:
http://nippop.com/features/feature_id-33/
http://metropolis.japantoday.com/biginjapanarchive249/243/biginjapaninc.htm
http://www.japan-zone.com/modern/johnnys.shtml

*ok maybe owned is a strong word since it's not in the article; more like "available to fans".  :wth2: Well, you know what, even if Arashi has girlfriends I don't give a hoot cuz let's face it, it's a one in a bizillion chance geting with those guys. it's not happening. it ain't gonna happen this lifetime. just be happy that they give off happiness.

" it's not that they can't have gf's, but they can't have public gf's"??? so that means they can have girlfriend but it must remain secret.??? I dont actually get the idea. can you correct it?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

Title: [Collection] Arashi Junior Nicknames
Post by: Denise_Dinc on January 29, 2007, 08:09:32 PM
Sho : umbrella
Ohno : 8 shaped eyebrows
Jun : Devil Jun
Nino : Monk
Aiba : Hiragana

there are stories about these.
if you've been an Arashi fan for a bit you know that Sho was very ... temperamental when he was a jr & when Arashi just began. Although temperamental could be an understatement. there are a few hardcore stories about Sho’s temper. The famous one is when some fan was secretly taking pictures of Sho on the train platform and got caught. He stormed up to her and grabbed her camera and THREW it onto the train tracks. Another time there were oriki (hardcore stalker like fans) that were outside the jimushou and they were yelling how awesome Sho was, and suddenly Sho shoves his head out and an ashtray comes flying out the 2nd floor window.
the main reasoning was because as the "Keio boy" Sho had a lot of pride not to mention one of his biggest pet peeves is causing nuisance onto others because of him. So when the fans would cause a commotion in public places he would get extremely mad. When Sho was a junior the fans nicknamed him "kasa." Kasa means umbrella. the reason for this is because he would carry around one of those long stiff umbrellas. he was often seen with that umbrella and he would use it to twirl it around and wave it around to get the fans away from him. he also used the umbrella to hit a fan that unreachable if they were taking pictures of him. Because Sho was seen with his "kasa" so many times the fans nicknamed him "kasa." (he never carried it on rainy days though...O_O)

Aiba’s is hilarious. When your a junior the fans are allowed to directly hand you letters. There are also times when the juniors would actually write you back. The reason the fans nicknamed Aiba "hiragana" is because whenever he would reply to his fanletters, EVERYTHING would be in hiragana. haha... no kanji just straight up hiragana.

Ohno’s is because he was always cringing. So his eyebrows made an 8 shape. You write 8 in kanji like so... 八

Jun's ... self explanatory.

Nino's ... is because of his hairstyle that people said he looked like a Buddhist monk

So when the fans would cause a commotion in public places he would get extremely mad. When Sho was a junior the fans nicknamed him "kasa." Kasa means umbrella. the reason for this is because he would carry around one of those long stiff umbrellas. he was often seen with that umbrella and he would use it to twirl it around and wave it around to get the fans away from him. he also used the umbrella to hit a fan that unreachable if they were taking pictures of him. Because Sho was seen with his "kasa" so many times the fans nicknamed him "kasa." (he never carried it on rainy days though...O_O)

Aiba’s is hilarious. When your a junior the fans are allowed to directly hand you letters. There are also times when the juniors would actually write you back. The reason the fans nicknamed Aiba "hiragana" is because whenever he would reply to his fanletters, EVERYTHING would be in hiragana. haha... no kanji just straight up hiragana.

Ohno’s is because he was always cringing. So his eyebrows made an 8 shape. You write 8 in kanji like so... 八

Jun's ... self explanatory.

Nino's ... is because of his hairstyle that people said he looked like a Buddhist monk

hi ~ I'm new here so I'm sorry if i post anything thats been said before  or anything which doesn't make sense :bow3:
i was watching a performance of love so sweet and nino was saying how when he went to France with Clint eastwood etc he had to have body guards  to protect him from the fans and he was really surprised how many people knew who he was. he found it funny that the french fan girls were shouting his name wrong - they were shouting 'nio' and 'nimo'  :sweat:
i think its really cute how arashi don't realise how popular they are over seas - they were all really surprised when nino told them about the fan girls, and even more surprised that they called him by his nickname
here is the TV show with the interview - http://www.veoh.com/videos/v267852cygwXHSg

I don't think a group of 23-26 year old guys would let him mess with them. I doubt he would do anything to older guys because they wouldn't allow it. I'm not sure whether it's true or not, but I'm pretty sure Arashi is safe! :victory:

that is so great to know. that kind of shows respect for himself, ne. it would be the same for a girl, but for a girl, it's so much more serious.

-he doesn't like kids...but wants them in the future!
-he's very shy when it comes to romance and girls...

OT: also, this is my first post, so hi!

Anyway... Hum... Did you know both Nino and Aiba know how to play guitar? I *think* (not sure), but Aiba wanted to learn too as Nino was learning it, but Nino didn't want him to (?), don't quote me on this, but yeah... but now he knows, so yay! :)

did you know that.... (if you already know, then my apologies...  ;D)

matsumoto jun won two best supporting actor awards in the japan television drama academy awards (the 33rd back in 2002 and the 47th in 2006)?

the first one was his role as sawada shin in gokusen and the other as domyouji tsukasa in hana yori dango.

during the same time, his "leading ladies" won the best actress awards as well. (inoue mao in hyd and nakama yukie in gokusen)

in 2007, he again won the award for best supporting actor in the 10th Nikkan Sports Drama Grand Prix for his performance as domyouji tsukasa in hana yori dango 2.

really a talented actor!  :D

thanks to drama wiki for the information!

Agree with flori_L,
wasn't this smoking issue have been discussed already in the earlier pages of this thread?

We're basically repeating the same thing again...

Here's a new one:

Did you know that Nino wrote all of the members' 20th birthday songs?

It's just that only MatsuJun's birthday song was made public.

(He mentioned this in his interview at Hanamaru cafe)

not that they purposely do concert on jun's bday....
 i think arashi always having summer concert every year....and coincidentally, jun was born in summer...and most of the time, some of the concert dates always falls on his birthday....
i'm sure the concert tickets on his bday are the most sought ones every year.  :saycheese:

Dear arashians,

I've taken out most of the posts in this thread with regards the discussion of Arashi smoking and their girlfriends.

Looking forward, pls do not go off topic. It is the forum's rule to stay in topic especially in Arashi's Discussion Board.
Your kind understanding is most appreciated. Thank you.

Title: Arashi Nicknames
Post by: Denise_Dinc on July 11, 2007, 01:56:29 PM
大野智

櫻井以外のメンバーからは基本的に「リーダー」と呼ばれている(櫻井は「大野くん」や
「智くん」)
二宮は携帯サイトの日記内にて「パン屋さん」と呼んでいる。
ファンからは、原知宏命名の愛称「大ちゃん」や、前記の「リーダー」と呼ばれていることが多い。
最近は、二宮和也のラジオbay stormで「サミー」とも呼ばれている。
「サミー」は偉い人と食事に行った時につけられた。(二宮談)
二宮和也からよく「おじさん」とも呼ばれている。しかし、二宮は相葉雅紀のことも「おじさん」と呼ぶため、区別するのが難しい。
「大ちゃん」は幼稚園時代のアダナだったが「大村君」にその座を奪われてから「大野」だった。
最近は「リーダー」から「キャプテン」に呼ばれ方が変わった。嵐五人で飲んだ時から(アメリカへ 行く二宮の軽い送別会だった)、他のグループにもリーダーはいるがキャプテンはいないだろうという理由で、メンバーがそう呼ぶようになった。ただし、嵐の中での一時的なブームかもしれないので、いつまた呼び名が変わるかは分からない。(現に、「サミー」は最近ではあまり呼ばれていないようだ)

樱井翔

「翔くん」と呼称されることが一般的のようだ。
だが、メンバーの相葉雅紀は、「翔ちゃん」と呼んでいる。
一時期二宮和也が「翔ぴん」と呼んでいたこともある。また二宮は、ジャニーズ事務所の携帯サイトで自身が連載している日記「ゲームニッキ」でのみ、「翔ぴん」と呼んでいる。
二宮の日記でのみでは「天気予報さん」(櫻井が天気予報のメルマガを購読していて外出中に天気を当てたことで付けられた。)とも呼ばれていた。
木更津キャッツアイの役名から「バンビ」と街中でよばれることもあるらしい。
昔からのファンは「サック」と呼ぶ人もいる。
ちなみに学校では「サクショウ」が基本で、後輩からは「サクショウ先輩」「サクショウさん」と呼ばれていたらしい。
Gの嵐!では「不器用大臣」と言われていた。
「ゲームニッキ」ではソロコンサートの題名“THE SHOW”から「ショウダブリュー」と呼ばれていた。

相叶雅纪

広くには「相葉ちゃん」
(Jr.時代、発言の天真爛漫さから共演者のヒロミより「スーパーアイドル相葉ちゃん」というあだ名をつけられた。これが現在の愛称「相葉ちゃん」の起源である。)

明石家さんまからは「アキバ君」と名前を間違えられた。
「マシューTV」で、マシューから「バッチ」と呼ばれていた。「ジャニーズ事務所の『新』おちゃらけボーイ」と紹介されていた。
関ジャニ∞の横山裕からは「カッペ」と呼ばれている

二宫和也

基本的にファンやメンバーからは「ニノ」、一部のファンからは「にのみ」「にのみん」「にのみぃ」と呼ばれている。
Webのゲームニッキには自身のファンのことを「にのみまにあ」と呼んでいる。ひらがなで書くのがポイントらしい
プライベートに近い状態(相葉/松本のラジオ・How's~のDVDすっぴんあらし二宮カメラにて櫻井)では「カズ」と呼ばれることも。
そのなごりなのか、自分たちがメインで出演する番組内でも、櫻井(時に相葉も)は「和くん」と呼ぶことがある。
嵐ファンの中には、ニノではなく『かず』または『カズちん』と呼ぶ人も居る。
家では「カズ」と呼ばれ、「カズナリ」とはあまり呼ばれたことがないとの本人談。昔はじめてドラマに出た頃からの知り合いのスタッフなどは「カズナリ」と呼ぶようだ。そんな中には「カズヤ」と間違えたまま呼び続ける人もいるが、もう諦めて訂正もしないらしい。

松本润:

広く一般的には「松潤」である。今では先輩や、大物芸能人にも松潤と呼ばれている。
メンバーの中では、相葉雅紀、大野智、櫻井翔から「松潤」。二宮和也から「潤くん」(ときおり「潤」)と呼ばれている。
また二宮のニッキ内にて、一時「プロゴルファーさん」との呼称を付けられたこともあったが、現在は元の「潤くん」に戻っている。ちなみに、朝の苦手な松本が張り切ってゴルフに参加したところから「プロゴルファーさん」と呼ばれるに至った(2005年夏)。
相葉には冗談で「まつもっちゃん」、大野、櫻井には「まつもとさん」とも呼ばれている。
初期の頃「カメ」と呼ばれていたこともあった。それはイベントでフライングの際、宙づりになった姿が似ていたからと社長に命名された。また、その頃は「いじられキャラ」の「へたれキャラ」だったため、メンバーからふざけてそう呼ばれていた。
高校在学時の同級生(平山あや等)からは「まっつん」と呼ばれていた。
一時期、櫻井翔が流行らせようと思い、「つもゆん」(「まつもとじゅん」からとったらしい)と呼んでいたが流行らなかった。
花より男子を収録中、演じていた道明寺司の「衣装が王子っぽい」という理由で、共演していた井上真央に「王子」と呼ばれていたらしい。
Gの嵐!番組内でマイナースポーツを好んでいるためメンバーから「マイナー番長」と呼ばれることもある。
レイザーラモンHGには「アニキ」と呼ばれている。
メンバーから、ことあるごとに"S"と呼ばれているため、たまにGの嵐!では「ドS番長」と呼ばれることもある。
恋愛ものの芝居が多いためか、相葉雅紀から「恋愛番長」とも呼ばれた。(Gの嵐!より)
相葉すごろくで、社長イス&ガウン&ブランデー&葉巻のマスにあたり、着用したときに櫻井翔からトランプのキングに似ているため「キング」と呼ばれた。(Gの嵐!より)
他にもあだ名は多い。



Just rough translations, not 100% correct. But the nicks are right I guess…

Ohno Satoshi

Other than Sho, other members call him “Ri-da-”,  (Sho calls him “Ohno-kun” or “Satoshi-kun”). Nino, in his cell phone site Nikki, calls Ohno “Pan-ya-san (Mr. Bread House)”. Among fans, other than the name “Oh-chan” which原知宏 gave, “ri-da-” is also rather popular. Recently, in Nino’s radio show Baystorm, he called Ohno “Sami-”. “When Sami- goes for a meal with ‘big-shots’ he will foot the bill” – says Nino. Sometimes you will hear “Ojisan” coming from Nino. However, Nino also uses this nickname for Aiba, so it’s hard to differentiate. Recently, different people started calling Ri-da- “Captain”. When Arashi had a gathering drink (for Nino who’s leaving for America), with an excuse saying that other groups also call their leader Ri-da-, Arashi members decided that they can’t be the same. It’s just that, does Arashi have some kind of boom or something? They always change the nicknames for each other until it’s hard to tell who’s who. (Now, “Sami-” isn’t heard at all)

Sakurai Sho

Most people call him “Sakurai-kun”. But members Aiba calls him “Sho-chan”.
There was also a time where Nino calls him “Sho-pin”. Again, Nino mentioned Sho in him ‘Game Nikki’ as “Sho-pin”. In Nino’s Nikki, he called Sho “Tenki-yohou-san (weather forecaster)”. It seemed like his name in Kisarazu Cat’s Eye “Bambi” is also heard on the streets. Older fans calls him “Sakku”. People call him “Sakusho” in school, his juniors call him “Sakusho-senpai” or “Sakusho-san”. In ‘G no Arashi!’, he’s called “Bukyou na Daijin (useless minister)”. In ‘Game Nikki’, talking about his solo con ‘The Show’, Nino called him “Sho Double-U (Sho+W)”
 
Aiba Masaki

Most people call him “Aiba-chan”. (In his junior days, because he’s so innocently cute, other performers called him “Super-Idol Aiba-chan”, that was when people started calling him “Aiba-chan”). 明石家 calls him “Akiba-kun”. In “Mashyuu TV”, they call him “Bacchi” and introduced him as “Johnny’s Jimusho’s new Ocharake Boy”. Yokoyama Yu calls him “Kappe”

Ninomiya Kazunari

Most fans, and members, calls him “Nino”, some fans call him “Ninomi”, “Nino-san”, “Ninomi-”. In his Nikki he sometimes calls his own fans “Ninomimania (Ninomi Mania, is it?)”. In private (Aiba/Jun’s radio show on How’s It Going DVD Suppin Arashi Nino Camera’s Sho), they call him “Kazu”. When he’s acting as the main character, among the casts and crews, Sho (sometimes Aiba too), will call him “Kazunari-kun” Among Arashi fans, there are also people who calls him “Kazu-chan”. At home, he’s called “Kazu”, he says that no one calls him “Kazunari”.
Some older staffs who knows him well sometimes calls him “Kazunari”. Among these people, there are still people who mis-read his name as “Kazuya”, and he has given up correcting them.

Matsumoto Jun

Most people call him “Matsujun”. His seniors, bosses (dunno how to translate that) also calls him “Matsujun”. Among members, Aiba, Ohno and Sho calls him “Matsujun”. Nino calls him “Jun-kun” sometimes “Jun” only. Again in Nino’s Nikki, he called Jun “Pro-Golf-san” (Jun, who finds it hard to wake up in the morning, is tensed when he joined the Golf competition in Summer 05’), now he calls him “Jun-kun” back.  Aiba, in his jokes, calls him “Matsumoto-chan”, while Ohno and Sho regards him as “Matsumoto-san”. At first, they called him “Kame (turtle)”. In the end of an event of frying (well that’s what the katakana and kanji says… dunno what that is), he posed like a big boss. Once again, he gets to be “Ijirare Kyara- (character which instructs people)” and “Hetare Kyara- (character which has people under him)”, members call him that as well. When he was in high school (same as Hirayama Aya), they call him “Mattsun”. There was once, Sho thought it was fashionable, and called him “Tsumoyun” – (MatsumotoJun), however it didn’t become a trend, lol. When he was filming ‘Hana Yori Dango’, because he was acting as Domyouji and his clothes were all ‘prince-like’, he was called “Ouji (young prince)”. In ‘G no Arashi!’, because he likes minor sports, members call him “Minor Ichiban Chyou (the best at minor sports)”. In Laser Ramon HG, he’s call “Aniki (big brother)”. The members sometimes regard him as “S”, as in ‘G no Arashi!’ he’s called “Do-S Banchyou (Do Sadistic Captain)”. He’s very experienced in love, so Aiba calls him “Renai Banchyou (Love Captain)”, from ‘G no Arashi!’. There was once Jun acted like a king in ‘G no Arashi!’, so Sho called him “King”.
His nicknames are more than others…

参院選は「嵐で翔」…アイドル初!櫻井翔が日テレ特番でプレゼンター

 人気グループ・嵐の櫻井翔(25)が29日放送の日テレ系参院選特番「ZERO×選挙 2007」(後7時58分)の第二部(後11時45分ごろ)で、討論プレゼンターを務めることが9日、分かった。アイドルが選挙特番を担当するのは初めて。25歳の若さで、与野党逆転の可能性もある一大選挙の “顔”を任された櫻井は「同世代の人たちはどういう風に選挙をとらえているのか。これからの日本を考え、多くの人に伝えたい」と意気込んでいる。

 昨年10月からスタートした同局系報道番組「NEWS ZERO」で月曜のキャスターを務める櫻井が、参院選を斬(き)り、日本の未来を占う。

 第二部では、櫻井がプレゼンターとして同番組でおなじみの巨大モニター「ニュースウオール」を使い、年金や格差の問題、理想の総理大臣やリーダー像…などテーマごとに論点を整理。スタジオにこれからの日本を背負う20~40代の政治家、タレント、一般人を集め、徹底討論をリードする。

 第一部MCの島田紳助(51)、小林麻央キャスター(24)らとも共演。自民党に吹く逆風で安倍首相退陣の可能性もある注目の選挙結果を随時リポートしながら、その先の今後の日本を考える。

 制作サイドは「政治に関心の薄い若い世代にも訴え、一緒に考える上で、櫻井さんは適任だった」とプレゼンター役を“公認”。慶応大学経済学部卒でキャスターとしての才能を見込まれた櫻井も「選挙への意識は『ZERO』に参加する中で強くなった。『ZERO』の看板を背負ってやる以上、絶対に参加したかった」と強い意欲で“出馬”を決めた。

 櫻井も毎回出席している「ZERO」生放送後の反省会を、参院選に向けた特別勉強会も含めた形にグレードアップ。大一番に向け、万全を期す。「同世代の人たちは選挙をどうとらえているのか。何を理由に投票したのか。聞きたいことはいっぱいある。それには、まずは自分が(選挙に)行かないと」と櫻井。

 当日は嵐として横浜アリーナで午後1、5時から昼夜2公演も行う。有権者、アイドル、特番プレゼンター。一日3役の25歳は「選挙って、ひいてはこれからの日本。多くの人に伝えたい」と力強く語った。

A first for an idol. Arashi’s Sho in the Upper House Elections. Sakurai Sho will be a presenter in NTV’s TV Special
 
On July 9th, it was announced that Sakurai Sho from the popular group Arashi will be a presenter in the debate in NTV’s special coverage program, [ZeroXElections 2007], of the Upper House elections on July 29th. This is the first time that an idol has taken part in an elections special program. At a young age of 25, he is going to be a ‘face’ an elections in which there is a possibility where the ruling party could loose its power. He says ‘How do people of my generation get a grip of this election? I want to bring the message across to many people, to think about the future of Japan.’
Sakurai, who started as a newscaster last October would be dissecting the elections and predicting what the future of Japan would be.
He will take part in the 2nd leg of the election coverage, and as a presenter, he will be discussing topics such as pension plans, problems of disparities in society, what would be the qualities of an ideal prime minister/leader etc. He will lead an thorough debate in the studio together with people who will be responsible for the future of Japan like 20-40 year old politicians, entertainers, and also the average-Joe..   
 The first part of the special will be hosted by 島田紳助(51) and Kobayashi Mao (24)、this is an important election which could see the Liberal Democratic Party lose its majority and result in the resignation of Prime Minister Abe. They will have a discussion about what will happen to Japan going forward, with breaking news as necessary.
On the HP, it says that it recognizes that ‘Sakurai san is the suitable candidate to engage the younger population to think about politics, a topic which is rather unpopular among the younger generation’.A graduate in Economics from Keio University, Sakurai, who shows promise as a talented newscaster says ‘ When I am on Zero, my awareness of the elections became stronger. As part of the Zero banner, I wanted to play a part in this’. With his strong motivation, it was decided that he would be also part of the program.
Sakurai also attends the postmortem meetings after each live airing of Zero, and has increased his knowledge about upper house elections in the special lectures that has been held.  ‘How do people of my generation view the elections? For what reasons do they cast their vote. I have a lot to ask. For that, firstly, I have to go to the elections.’he says.
 On that day, Arashi will be holding 2 concerts at the Yokohama Arena. A voter, an idol, a special presenter. This 25 year old, who will play 3 different roles in one day, says with great conviction ‘The outcome of the elections will shape the future of Japan. This is the message I want to bring to many people.’

Title: Re: Arashi Nicknames
Post by: septemberblue on July 28, 2007, 12:57:51 AM






Just rough translations, not 100% correct. But the nicks are right I guess…

Ohno Satoshi

Other than Sho, other members call him “Ri-da-”,  (Sho calls him “Ohno-kun” or “Satoshi-kun”). Nino, in his cell phone site Nikki, calls Ohno “Pan-ya-san (Mr. Bread House)”. Among fans, other than the name “Oh-chan” which??? gave, “ri-da-” is also rather popular. Recently, in Nino’s radio show Baystorm, he called Ohno “Sami-”. “When Sami- goes for a meal with ‘big-shots’ he will foot the bill” – says Nino. Sometimes you will hear “Ojisan” coming from Nino. However, Nino also uses this nickname for Aiba, so it’s hard to differentiate. Recently, different people started calling Ri-da- “Captain”. When Arashi had a gathering drink (for Nino who’s leaving for America), with an excuse saying that other groups also call their leader Ri-da-, Arashi members decided that they can’t be the same. It’s just that, does Arashi have some kind of boom or something? They always change the nicknames for each other until it’s hard to tell who’s who. (Now, “Sami-” isn’t heard at all)

Sakurai Sho

Most people call him “Sakurai-kun”. But members Aiba calls him “Sho-chan”.
There was also a time where Nino calls him “Sho-pin”. Again, Nino mentioned Sho in him ‘Game Nikki’ as “Sho-pin”. In Nino’s Nikki, he called Sho “Tenki-yohou-san (weather forecaster)”. It seemed like his name in Kisarazu Cat’s Eye “Bambi” is also heard on the streets. Older fans calls him “Sakku”. People call him “Sakusho” in school, his juniors call him “Sakusho-senpai” or “Sakusho-san”. In ‘G no Arashi!’, he’s called “Bukyou na Daijin (useless minister)”. In ‘Game Nikki’, talking about his solo con ‘The Show’, Nino called him “Sho Double-U (Sho+W)”
 
Aiba Masaki

Most people call him “Aiba-chan”. (In his junior days, because he’s so innocently cute, other performers called him “Super-Idol Aiba-chan”, that was when people started calling him “Aiba-chan”). ??? calls him “Akiba-kun”. In “Mashyuu TV”, they call him “Bacchi” and introduced him as “Johnny’s Jimusho’s new Ocharake Boy”. Yokoyama Yu calls him “Kappe”

Ninomiya Kazunari

Most fans, and members, calls him “Nino”, some fans call him “Ninomi”, “Nino-san”, “Ninomi-”. In his Nikki he sometimes calls his own fans “Ninomimania (Ninomi Mania, is it?)”. In private (Aiba/Jun’s radio show on How’s It Going DVD Suppin Arashi Nino Camera’s Sho), they call him “Kazu”. When he’s acting as the main character, among the casts and crews, Sho (sometimes Aiba too), will call him “Kazunari-kun” Among Arashi fans, there are also people who calls him “Kazu-chan”. At home, he’s called “Kazu”, he says that no one calls him “Kazunari”.
Some older staffs who knows him well sometimes calls him “Kazunari”. Among these people, there are still people who mis-read his name as “Kazuya”, and he has given up correcting them.

Matsumoto Jun

Most people call him “Matsujun”. His seniors, bosses (dunno how to translate that) also calls him “Matsujun”. Among members, Aiba, Ohno and Sho calls him “Matsujun”. Nino calls him “Jun-kun” sometimes “Jun” only. Again in Nino’s Nikki, he called Jun “Pro-Golf-san” (Jun, who finds it hard to wake up in the morning, is tensed when he joined the Golf competition in Summer 05’), now he calls him “Jun-kun” back.  Aiba, in his jokes, calls him “Matsumoto-chan”, while Ohno and Sho regards him as “Matsumoto-san”. At first, they called him “Kame (turtle)”. In the end of an event of frying (well that’s what the katakana and kanji says… dunno what that is), he posed like a big boss. Once again, he gets to be “Ijirare Kyara- (character which instructs people)” and “Hetare Kyara- (character which has people under him)”, members call him that as well. When he was in high school (same as Hirayama Aya), they call him “Mattsun”. There was once, Sho thought it was fashionable, and called him “Tsumoyun” – (MatsumotoJun), however it didn’t become a trend, lol. When he was filming ‘Hana Yori Dango’, because he was acting as Domyouji and his clothes were all ‘prince-like’, he was called “Ouji (young prince)”. In ‘G no Arashi!’, because he likes minor sports, members call him “Minor Ichiban Chyou (the best at minor sports)”. In Laser Ramon HG, he’s call “Aniki (big brother)”. The members sometimes regard him as “S”, as in ‘G no Arashi!’ he’s called “Do-S Banchyou (Do Sadistic Captain)”. He’s very experienced in love, so Aiba calls him “Renai Banchyou (Love Captain)”, from ‘G no Arashi!’. There was once Jun acted like a king in ‘G no Arashi!’, so Sho called him “King”.
His nicknames are more than others…

Kindly correct me if I am wrong also...but I find it quite interesting

...I actually stumbled upon this info when I was trying to form the plotline of Denouement in my mind. I'm such a research geek so here it is.

I feel like playing six degrees of Arashi and their connection with such Hollywood greats like Ken Watanabe, Clint Eastwood and Tom Cruise.....

Anyway

Has anyone seen The Last Samurai?

We all know that the girl in Kimi Wa Petto was played Koyuki and she is also in The Last Samurai as Taka right? Well the guy who played Emperor Meiji was played by Shichinosuke Nakamura and he was Jun's highschool best friend.

Heres the proof:

http://tokki.vox.com/library/posts/tags/jun/ (http://tokki.vox.com/library/posts/tags/jun/)

Just scroll down to the last entry. And you'll read more about how he and jun became friends. There's pics too as well!

PS: that particular page is also quite interesting to read as well. Especially the part of the fan girl report in HYD 2 set

I'm on a roll. Still, I can be wrong so kindly correct me

Has anyone noticed that bracelet that Sho would always wear? The one with three turquoise stones on it?

Story behind it is that Sho got that from a Native American preserve in the US. He did a show there and experienced the life of the Native American Indians. At the end of the episode he visited a jeweler who was makes bracelets. The jeweler gave Sho the opportunity to make one, but he couldn't. So in the end the jeweler finished up the bracelet and gave it to Sho. That bracelet was handcrafted by the native American jeweler and was given to Sho as a gift.

I have seen that bracelet actually in various photo shoots and its pretty.

Wee! That was fun! I lost track of time in looking for pictures! Demo, I still can't find that particular photoshoot where the magazine singled out his bracelet. But I did find him wearing it in many more shoots. And I guess also recently in Syudaikun. And saw some pics I haven't seen before so I'm particularly happy.

I'm an accessories dork. And I like simple accessories and all so I got particularly interested in his bracelet.

PS: on Jun, I kept seeing him wearing this necklace that looks like a g or j. I still can't figure it out which. In recent Syudaikun episodes, he's wearing it also....can someone check that? Please? :D He's been wearing it in concerts as well.

PPS: I'm so happy because I found some really cool pics of the boys that I haven't seen so I can use them for Denouement.WEHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! THANKS LADY SUMIRE

PPPS: Satoshi and Sho likes to share shirts. Makes me wonder how much sharing happens between the boys,ne? *looks up in praying position* Lord, please stop making my imagination go wild when it comes to these boys. I'm gonna be 25 soon and I still have daydreams about boys who can't understand a word of tagalog. Just for a few hours, please make my imagination stop even for a while. Thank you lord. amen

LOL. I have a wrist fetish(don't ask :nono1: :bye2:) so I noticed it. You can also tell that Aiba-san always wears this one bracelete with dark beads on his left wrist. Jun wears one with a J and I also saw him wearing a Rolling Stone Toungue necklace.

Arashi has 8 years of success and they have a very good relationship to each other........i adore them!!!!!!!!!! every one of them has their own talent........im not Japanese and i dont live in Japan but i still know that they just finish their Dome tour...it was so successful.........so WTF w/ those st***d fans?? i dont know too much about Kat-tun and dont want to know anything about them , but just think......yep.......just think.........how can they compare Arashi and Kat-tun?? ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How do they distinguish between "public" girlfriends and "private" ones! That's so terrible! But I guess my crush on Jun would take a dive if i had to watch him making out with some other girl all the time...  :inlove:
and is Jun the only one with leg hair? that's so funny! Is that such a bad thing though?

I also read somewhere that KAT-TUN fans are harrassing Arashi but the Jimusho warned KAT-TUN that if their fans kept on doing that, KAT-TUN will be disbanded.  I don't know if that's true.  Anyway, I saw some clips of Arashi with the other JE bands, including KAT-TUN, and they seem to have a good relationship with each other.

Eventhough i can watch it but that means only one thing....
ARASHI is already larger than life.... :bow3: :bow3: :bow3:

And about ARASHI vs KAT-TUN,
i think all the fighting series just in a term of publicity...

that's so sad... i mean, no fan should do that may they be fans of kat-tun or arashi)... i respect kat-tun and all of them (je boys) seem to be friends with each other... i just don't get it why fans would do that. sad... sorry to go offtopic :D

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: maiykee on September 30, 2007, 02:47:02 PM
for me, sho's new haircut made him look more older and mature... dat's just my opinion...

as for the KATTUN vs ARASHI fight between fans, then those are not fans, they're just pretending to be fans. i mean if you're really supporting ARASHI, you wouldn't go out and pick fights with other girls, you'd continue to support your band. i mean me being a fan, i wouldn't mind if someone bad-mouthed them, instead i'd prove to them that arashi is a great band who sells a lot of records, sings wonderful songs, and even does great performances in tv dramas.

maybe those fans need to find other outlets for their pent-up emotions for ARASHI... how about they go sing karaoke or something?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: reki on October 06, 2007, 05:03:00 PM
Karaoke is funny because I'd just try to mimic Arashi (laugh)

j-webs are blogs they post via their mobile phones. it cannot be accessed thru the net    :winky:

I wanna contribute! Though I think a lot of you know this already!

At around the end of the Tour Arashi slept in a hotel and room assignments were Nino and Jun in one. And Riida,Sho and Aiba in another! Sho had a great sleep but Riida and Aiba didn't. Why? Sho-kun snores really loud and grinds his teeth!! Aiba describes it with sound of 'bring bring'. They thought it was their cellphones!!
*found it out from music station*

Ohno and Nino touch each others buts during performances sometimes. ( 0_0!!) They explained it was to keep each other alert. Aiba, Jun, and Sho-kun kept going on about it. Ohno says ' i was satisfied.'
*another from music station*

Did you know...

Nino hates children [though it is hard to believe to see the interactions between the children and him in the show where they cook for the children]

Nino is allergic to seafood [they said it in hana-something show.  But I think I still see him eating seafood in Arashi no Shukudaii]

Hope this is new?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: jae-kun on October 18, 2007, 09:01:30 PM
he hates kids?
really? umm can you say where you got that info or an interview?

sea food? hmmm  (so i guess i must not bring him any then ne?) hehe one thing is for sure though ^^ oh chan isn't allergic to anything since he eats almost anything in everyshow (or is he?)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Leia on October 19, 2007, 09:02:19 PM
i can't believe nino really HATES children... i don't think it's true!


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: tensai10 on October 19, 2007, 09:08:11 PM
Nino said that in Magomago Arashi 061021SP.  Perhaps he said it for fun... Hard to believe that he "hates" (to use a strong word) children.  Maybe more of... can't handle them.  I think he says that he cannot handle them again in a recent interview show thingy -- something ciao (I only know the chinese name 铁板对谈-ciao).  He was saying how most of his friends were older than him (perhaps to save money seeing how stingy he is with money XD) and how Sho was better with children

Ohno can't be allergic to anything... I can imagine his "Umai" right now hee hee So cute~


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: kikintae on October 20, 2007, 01:45:27 AM
in arashi nino, ohno and jun don't like children. i don't think he hate them but just don't want to bother by them. only sho and aiba like children, that could be because they have younger brother and sister. so that why is so fun when nino, ohno and jun on mago mago arashi, they usually get abuse by children. it fun to watch


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Cherry C. on October 20, 2007, 11:59:43 AM
^ If they 'hated' children, I would probably drop some well earned brownie points, but I'm sure they're probably the same as me--Kids are cute [sometimes], but they're too troublesome. XD Do you know how hard it is to get that one child to belive that I am and authority over her even though she's nearly taller than me?!

Muzui~yo ne!

^...They get abused by children. XD So do I. [It's quite painful, actually]


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Leia on October 20, 2007, 06:20:27 PM
so...
nino, jun & ohno don't like children as much as aiba and sho do, but they don't hate them..! ^^


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

Nino is not allergic to seafood - I think I read in an article that Nino only hates to eat seafood, like shellfish (clams, mussels), but he is not allergic.

one thing thought jun like little girl, he adore them, if you see some clip, he treat them very sweet, and let them abuse him alot. he can't say no to them.

Post by: avionsdepapier on October 21, 2007, 02:56:23 AM
Sho-kun snores so loud?! lol ... i just want to hear how he snores  :blush2:

from what i read, it wasnt so much of the snoring. It was more of the fact that Sho was really grinding his teeth, so much so that it sounded like the sound which a handphone makes when vibrating against the floor. Aiba even thought it was his handphone that was vibrating, only to realize later that it was sho's grinding of teeth. Apparently this happens to Sho when he gets too stressed (or so i read from some article).

And grinding of teeth is a condition called Bruxism (you can google it if you like, i am sure there are entries on wikipedia) and it's generally triggered off by stress.

did you know that nino ohno and aiba teamed up to act out the role of domyouji tsukasa and makino tsukushi?

well, not really act out, more like radio drama. you can hear this from arashi's secret talk 2005. to be specific, they did the scene where domyouji gave makino a make over and was asking her to smile for him.

it was hella funny. :P

Ah sou desu ka? I'd still like to hear that! Another rendition of that "JunXOhno Domyouji Makino" impression perhaps?

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: reki on October 30, 2007, 09:41:47 PM
I've watched one where MatsuJun = Domyouji, Ohno = Tsukushi.

REALLY FUNNY.

Ohno was like, "Ahrenai itsu...????" ..."no."

That's what Tsukushi always says (I'm sorry if the romanji is wrong), meaning it's unbelievable. Ohno spaced out for a while before saying No. And MatsuJun giggled/laugh.

HAHAHA.

not sure if I should post this and I think you already know this, ok, here it is.

Jun, Sho, Aiba, Nino... already has girlfriends. And Ohno is getting rumors that he has or is dating someone. Did I get it right? Sorry if I posted this and made ur day quite bad... sori...

Post by: Sanae on December 18, 2007, 04:58:39 PM
Alright, I don't mean to sound harsh or anything like that but, I believe this thread's purpose is to post FACTS about Arashi. Rumours, as fun and interesting as they might be, are not facts. That said, I'm not naive enough to think that they don't have anyone in their lives (I actually hope they have!) but, until we get official confirmation of that fact, I won't believe any groundless gossip.

At any rate, I don't really understand why JE doesn't allow their idols to have girlfriends publicly, after all, I would only be happy if I found out they're in love because, let's face it, even if I weren't already married and six years his senior, what are the chances of me meeting Jun Matsumoto in person and him falling madly in love with me? I'd say that's more likely to have Osama Bin Laden turning into a pacifist so yeah, I'd be very glad if Jun announced that he's dating someone who makes him happy.

Post by: leen_zhihai on December 18, 2007, 09:19:17 PM
same goes to me.. i really hope they did find someone who can make them happy... i think they've worked really hard since the day they got into je.. n i think it's unfair for je to control them in this aspect...

Post by: Kochou1331 on December 22, 2007, 09:07:46 AM
Jun is nearsighted, but Ohno is farsighted.  Though both wear contacts for public appearances and most Arashi things, Jun has stated in a magazine article that he normally wears EITHER his glasses or his contacts.

So true ne...

They've been working so hard since they got there and it is unfair of JE to control them that way,
but either way moving out of that issue...

I'd be pretty happy as well if they announced that they do have someone that makes them happy, they do deserve to have one. Just because they have that special someone would not stop me from admiring and supporting them.

Someone was asking about the guys smoking, well you can see Jun smoke in Tokyo Tower... Can't say I really like it...  does look kinda wrong on him. :sob:

Oh and did you know that AIBA has some kind of birthmark on his left shoulder/arm.  It could be a burn also.  I have a pic if anyone wants to see.

All of them, I think smokes...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: dollsdream on January 02, 2008, 10:56:02 PM
Smoking is very common in Japan, actually.

So.. yeah. I think all of Arashi has experienced smoking already.

The thought of Oh-chan smoking makes me want to cry. :crybb:

All of them, I think smokes...

Key words being 'I think'  Posting rumours again, I see... :nono1:

I'm not going to say that I'm sure neither Jun, Ohno nor Sho smoke because, let's face it, we don't know nor will have a sure way of knowing (unless any of you have some pictures of them in real life holding a cigarrette...)

Now, it seems to be a commonly known fact that Nino's a pretty heavy smoker and that Aiba used to smoke too but quit after he had his lung problems. You know what? The bottom line is that it's perfectly fine by me if ALL of them smoke. Smoking is not against the law (yet) so, as long as they respect the non-smoking areas, they're free to do as their please with their health.

Maybe in America and elsewhere smoking is seen as some sort of unforgivable offence but, let me tell you that in Europe, same than in Japan, it's actually a pretty common practice and no one thinks badly of you just because you smoke. Heck, my HUSBAND smokes and I'm not going to divorce him just because of that!

If you were to tell me that the boys have any drug or alcohol-related dependencies, then I'd probably shake my head but if they're just smoking and drinking socially, it's quite normal. They're just young men in their twenties enjoying the extremely little free time they have!

Those are rumors. ^^
NIno denied that he has one. The Masami thingy.
Sho's is Kobayashi Mao. But I don't think she's his gf. Just his co-newscaster.
Jun and Aiba's are rumor.
Oh-chan was said to be dating this Minami girl. But they're just good friends according to him. Minami is just someone from his butai last year.. so.

All of those were rumors from May2007. Right now, all of them don't have gf's. ^^

Really all of them are smoking.. i know that nino is smoking..
also ohno.. you can see him smoking in AAA dvd backstage in korea.. where nino was filming ohno and aiba close up and aiba was laughing coz ohno was hiding it on camera coz he was smoking that time.. you can see also the smoke that pass by aiba's face when the cam was facing aiba..

for sho.. i have a stolen pic of him holding a cig with his other friends.. (not arashi members)

jun... you can see him smoking in many dramas....


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 06, 2008, 11:02:48 PM
In all honesty, I don't think Jun smokes in real life. The fact that he smoked in Tokyo Tower and Bambino (the only two times I've seen him holding a cigarrette) doesn't mean he smokes. Antonio Banderas often played gay characters and that doesn't make him gay...they're actors and if the character they play is supposed to smoke, they'll smoke. Even my husband (who, like I said is a smoker) commented watching Bambino with me that Jun doesn't seem to be very comfortable holding a cigarrette...

That said, even if ALL of them do smoke, it's perfectly cool with me: as long as is not illegal, they can do whatever they please with their lives.

Aah..!
Hontou? I think I'm going to faint.  :diao:

Eheheh... Just kidding, I was hoping it was me..  :saycheese:

Joke.

Demo if that be the case, then I'll be happy as long as he's happy. Its not a reason for stopping to admire him.
 :laugh2: :yu:

I also get crazy when I don't get my daily dose of Ohmiya SK. Along with the others too of course...
 XD


With this smoking as well, I can't do anything if they do smoke, it is their lives after all... So long as they know their limits which I know they do since they're already adults.... Just that I'm worried about their health too as a fan of theirs, and beside [quotes Sanae-san] its not something to make me stop from liking them.

Jun looks like someone who doesn't smoke when he holds a cigarette.  There's a causual way that a real smoker holds their hand and Jun just looks to stiff.

All of them, I think smokes...

Yeah, precisely what my husband thought too while watching Bambino. I'll actually quote what he said:

H: 'That guy there doesn't smoke in real life.'

me: 'How do you know?'

H: 'Because he looks as comfortable holding a cigarrette as you do...' 

This made me laugh because it's true: I've never smoked in my whole life and I do look rather weird if I hold a cigarrette...

Anyway, like I said numerous times, I don't care what they do in their private time, as long as it's legal. And Aerhys-san, thanks for backing me up!

No problem Sanae-san...  :cool3:

Now i hope we can all move on from the members' smoking stuff topic that has been raised countless times already... Its like we're repeating everything were saying.

All I can conclude is that even if they do smoke, its not a reason for not liking them anymore, if you like them for who they are that is...

And they're adults now so I think they know their own limits if they do, besides we don't have solid proof of their smoking issues unless they tell us themselves but I think that's too much of us to pry on their personal space to go far as to reassure/confirm their smoking issues nonetheless.

Hear, hear!

Just want to say that Kamu-chan's an ace when it comes to making sigs. Yours is amazing!

Now, let's leave the foor to those who have FACTS (remember, not rumours or, 'I've-heard-that') about our Stormy Boys. For instance...

Did you know that Aiba said that Riida sometimes has dry clay under his nails after he's been working on his sculptures? I found that to be totally adorable...awww...

Also, Jun said he likes pairing up with Aiba because he knows that Aiba is prone to do weird things thus making Jun look cool. What a meany can our beloved DoS be, ne minna? (I wonder what Aiba will say to this too! Again, Aiba is possibly the best natured person in the planet so he'll probably just laugh it off...)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Aerhys07 on January 13, 2008, 12:35:48 AM
I Have to second that!!!

Kamu-chan is the best!
When i was placing the sig I had some problems, at first it was too small then it became a link.. its quite funny when i think about it.. XD lol

Oh yeah did anyone notice that the 'Kazunari' is spelled wrong? I was laughing when I saw that and thought to myself 'oh well, it still looks cute anyway'
 :saycheese:


=====
Awe... Oh-chan, you are soo adorable. Congratulations again for the art exhibit hope it goes well.

Awe Jun, how can you be mean to Aiba-chan... Eheheh...  lol XD


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 13, 2008, 12:39:42 AM
You know, till you pointed it out, I hadn't even noticed that Nino's name's spelt wrong. It may be because the two pics on the sig distract you too much thus you don't pay attention to the way the name is written...

Oh and yes, I so hope Oh-chan receives the praise he deserves. The critique better be as impressed as we are!


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Aerhys07 on January 13, 2008, 12:45:27 AM
I just had that sig this morning and placed it as my sig this morning too and its only now that i've noticed that Nino's name was spelled wrong...

But you're right, the two pics distract you that much that you don't even notice that something was wrong somewhere... I'm guessing Kamu-chan was distracted as well when she was working on it...
Hahah... Yeah for te Nino-ness...
 :heehee: :naughty: lol XD


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 13, 2008, 12:55:48 AM
You can't blame Kamu-chan though...it's awfully good of her to be able to handle Nino's pics without spacing out.

Now, about Nino, it's very funny how he'd spend the last three days of the world playing videogames. Makes me wonder just how much of an otaku he is when it comes to videogames...can you guys imagine trying to beat him with the playstation?

Mission Impossible, methinks.

Be honest: providing you somehow manage not to faint in the presence of Mr Ninomiya, do you seriously think you could concentrate enough to find the console's controller? Let alone pay attention to the game itself...

Methinks not...  lol

Well.. I'd probably be too freaked out that it actually WAS Nino [even though he's my least favorite in Arashi] to concentrate, but if he were a normal person I could probably win.  lol

Meh.. But he said he likes to play RPGs, and that VS games are a waste of time. :p

Post by: mischi14 on January 13, 2008, 09:09:59 AM
did you know that jun and aiba were the ones responsible for painting nino's face black in the aozora pedaru video?

you might notice the black lines under nino's eyes in the pv. in the making of the video, aiba suggested to the rest of the cast that they imitate "kintetsu" (i'm going by what i heard them say. this is probably a popular character in japan. please correct me if i'm wrong.) jun then suggested that they (arashi, minus ohno plus the three girls in the video!) play a round of janken and the loser should be painted "kintetsu".

sho and nino played finally but then nino lost. jun then mounted a protesting nino (yes, HE MOUNTED HIM. if that's not mounting, then i don't know what it is!!) and then he and aiba painted nino's face while chanting "kintetsu, kintetsu".

*note: ohno was off somewhere while they were doing this. probably shooting his parts of the video.

another round of janken was played, but now jun lost and so aiba painted his forehead with 6 black dots while they were all singing the theme song of dragon ball (as sanae said) (i think that was related to the 6 dot-look of krillin jun was sporting).

*edit: aha! i knew it! i just wasn't sure so i didn't put it in. thanks sanae!

for more info about the video, watch the making. you can download it from http://arashianfiles.orgfree.com/pvs.htm credit goes to the person who uploaded the file. :) thanks!!


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 13, 2008, 09:41:24 AM
They were singing the theme of Dragon Ball because they painted the dots in the same pattern as Krillin, one of the main characters: http://www.hit-points.com/cm/img/krillin.jpg

It was hilarious to watch, thanks for reminding me, I think I'll go and watch the video again.

Nino's really a good director for the arrangements for the Aozora Pedaru pv although Aiba-chan was the one who said that he wanted to direct the pv of Aozora Pedaru...

I'm just happy that Sho had a solo in it.

It was cute.. heck all of them are. i couldn't stop laughing when they were singing to the dragon ball tune after Jun lost the Janken match and Nino was really happy that he didn't lose that round since he lost the first round and had them paint under his eyes.

I kinda felt sad for the girl when Sho told him off.

Mmm...I'm not 100% sure about this but I've always believed that Nino wrote the screenplay of the PV, he didn't direct it himself. I think that the director was the guy whose hair looked a lot like Jun's when he wore the extensions...

I know, that's what I thought when I read it. Sadly I can't remember where I did read it but, somehow and seeing how creative Nino is, it's not so difficult to believe he would come up with such a fantastic storyline for their PV.

They were singing the theme of Dragon Ball because they painted the dots in the same pattern as Krillin, one of the main characters: http://www.hit-points.com/cm/img/krillin.jpg

It was hilarious to watch, thanks for reminding me, I think I'll go and watch the video again.

sadly.. haven't watched this vid.. guys.. do you have some link for this vid..?

You can find it here: http://arashianfiles.orgfree.com/pvs.htm

Look under Aozora Pedaru - Making of. You need to be able to download from Megaupload and join both parts with HJSPLIT but it's well worth it. And, like I said earlier, Nino came up with the story line of the PV, he DID NOT direct it.

Kya.. gomen ne minna-san..
I just got back here and read the posts...

I apologize for using the wrong word on describing Nino with the storyline of the pv..

I'm glad Sanae-san pointed that out...

-mentally slaps self for not noticing the difference-

Yep.. Nino was responsible for the storyline of the Aozora Pedaru PV but he wasn't the one who directed it.
>.<


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 19, 2008, 02:21:51 PM
No need to apologise...it's a common mistake some people make because of the fact that Nino is seen several times during the making of the PV carrying a camera...but again, so does Jun and I think that even Sho has a go with it at some point. The director of the PV is some guy who has the same messy bangs that Jun himself sported, only that the director's are natural and Jun's were just extensions. I think that one of the boys actually mention something about that at the beginning of the making of video.

nino fans might know this, just thought i share it with the one who don't know yet  ok

do you know that nino's left fingerbones were all crushed somewhere in 99-00 (correct me if i'm wrong).
he can't even last a 2 hour concert, he had to shift mic from his left hand to right (he's left handed, remember?)
i was curious before as to why he seldom use mic in cons, now i know :winky:

got to know this from mago mago arashi rowing team sp ep.

i have new found respect for ninoboy :saycheese:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: penniquene on January 20, 2008, 06:48:46 PM
i've heard about the injury on the his left hand but wasnt sure when it happened. was this reason why his thumb was bandaged when he sang konseki during a concert?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 20, 2008, 07:06:58 PM
From what I know, it was Nino's thumb that was once broken by an overexcited fan, resulting in not being able to play the guitar in his solo 'Konseki' during the Iza Now 2004 Concert. Also, the reason why Nino switches the mike from one hand to the other is because he is ambidextrous. In fact, his left hand is stronger than his right and he usually holds his chopsticks with his left hand.



Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on January 20, 2008, 08:01:09 PM
i watched mago mago rowing team eps again, he actually fractured his left palm when he was a Junior. even though he's lefthanded, it never really fully recovered, so that's why he had difficulties in concert and doing heavy stuff with his left hand.

i guess arashi are really tough guys ne.  rock on


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 21, 2008, 09:18:05 AM
That might be so but he doesn't seem to have problems in terms of grip since, like I said, Nino uses his left hand to eat and shows no trouble when he's playing the guitar or doing his famous back-flips...eh, it's just like you said, these guys are tougher than any superhero we know!

Post by: Sanae on January 21, 2008, 11:28:05 AM
Well, factually speaking, Nino IS the weakest member in Arashi in terms of strength but I've always said that despite appearances, he's actually quite tough so overcoming something like a few broken bones is probably not a big deal for him.

Speaking of recoveries, many people know that Jun survived (thank goodness!) to a close encounter with a van when he was seven although he spent two months in the hospital in order to do so. What I think it's a little less known fact is that Aiba-chan broke his hip-bone fooling around some tyres at his school's playground when he was around 12/13 years old. I find it amazing that he's able to do all the dance routines nonetheless...

These guys are truly impressive, it makes me think they're indestructible!


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Aerhys07 on January 21, 2008, 02:03:51 PM
they really re amazing...
If they can overcome those then we can too.
 :saycheese:

Like Sanae-san said Nino is the weakest member in terms of strength, the stats were shown in thread here.
Well i'm not wondering why he seems to be the weakest in terms of strength since he spends most of his time playing  games... Er.. i just thought of something silly, maybe the reason why his hand injury didn't bother him much is because he always held a console playing, his hands got enough exercise through that.
XD

Demo, i was kinda shocked to see that Oh-chan was the strongest among the five of them, honestly i was expecting  Sho since... well, he is sorta doing some body building..
 :saycheese:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: penniquene on January 21, 2008, 06:28:46 PM
@ aerhys
haha! maybe ne? games are really important to him  :laugh2:

yes i was shocked too! i thought it would be sho since.... he has like the fittest body. but it was oh-chan instead. oh well. not that i mind of course  :heehee:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on January 22, 2008, 12:35:11 AM
i know that nino is the weakest factually, but it's impressive that he and the others managed to survive all the accidents they've gone through (esp nino,jun, and aiba) and still able to perform to us looking healthy and energetic..

i was thinking just now, about nino being the weakest, i'm kinda worried what will happen to him if he encounter danger alone, i believe that the others will surely fight back and have a big possiblities to win over.. i'm kinda doubting will nino win?? but, my imagination told me that he will just need to give a yamada taro's smile to the attacker.. and victory will surely be with him!! :yahoo: (gomen ne, my imagination running wild tonight)

Gah...Nino's thumb broken by an over excited fan... it's just giving us fans bad names. Bleh.

But it is quite surprising though. Even though he's the weakest, he's the best at gymnastics out of all of them (Though Ohno should've been in that Johnny's Jr. Gymnastics show. He's amazing at acrobatics, too.)

GooooO Nino!

Post by: salwa on January 22, 2008, 01:40:05 AM
nino is invisible to u before?? btw, he's strong..

leen-chan, don't take it the wrong way. i've always seen nino as the smartest when it comes to using strength. sho always think that he wanna win, jun put all his strength in doing the best that he could, oh-chan, well.. he's just strong ;) and aiba is so energetic, he'll do it staright away.

but nino, he calculated stuff. kind alike when u play video games, u calculated what u wanna do in order to get to the next level in the best way. that's what he does. that's why when it comes to physical challenge, he's always invisible as in not showing himself first, but later on, he'll succeed :saycheese:

i said this based on him playing basketball against V6 (sports day 03?) and the mago mago rowing team.

but i still love matsujun the most ;) he'll try to do as best as he can and he kinda prove that if u try hard enuf, u might just win the game :inlove:

I'm not sure if this has already been posted but, it seems like Jun used to think of Takky as his aniki (older brother) because when they were juniors Takky would always take care of him. I wonder if whenever the NO BORDER meet up and they all get drunk Jun still calls him that...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on January 22, 2008, 09:59:14 PM
was it in jun's 10000 words where he said bout him looking up to tackey? i read it somewhere..

i would love to know what No Border do when they meet up.. such a mix of personalities ;)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 22, 2008, 10:24:30 PM
I got this from Jun's visit to the Hanamaru Cafe in 2000. He brought a picture of Takky and as a caption he wrote the word 'aniki'. But yeah, it'd be really interesting to know what a bunch of such different people talk about when they get together...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on January 23, 2008, 03:40:42 AM
that so sweet of him to refer tackey as aniki.. btw, arashi is really close with tackey, right?? even when they debuted, fans was guessing that tackey will be in instead of riida..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 23, 2008, 07:20:23 AM
That's right, apparently there were quite a few people who got upset with Johnny's because instead of picking the super-popular Takky, they chose some 'unknown' junior to debut with Arashi. I'm sure that loads of these people have now changed their mind seeing how freaking fantastic our almighty Riida-sama is, ne minna?

But yeah, Arashi and Takky&Tsubasa are really close, to the point that in their Dome concert they were special guests and, of course, Takky is part of the NO BORDER group with Jun so, there's always that extra connection.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on January 23, 2008, 11:17:54 AM
ermm.. when did tackey and tsubasa debuted?

i'd prefer riida still over tackey, even back then. i don't think i'll feel as homely/ friendly as i feel now when i see arashi. tackey is looked upon as senpai/aniki ne, so the feel would change ne..

i would love to see more pics of tackey+jun tho.. i can really see them as brothers ;)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on January 23, 2008, 11:39:54 AM
they debuted in 2002..

yup, arashi wouldn't be the same without riida.. but at that time, ohno is almost unknown bcoz 2 years in kyoto has made him out of the other jrs that were well-exposed to the public.. that's why people wondering why johnny didn't put tackey in there as he was one of the most popular jr..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: taisa on January 23, 2008, 11:40:42 AM
hm...i knew something but i'm not sure it is real or not...ah well...might just put it here  :blink1:

Its from Iza Now Concert 2004
1. Nino-sama solo [Konseki] was written and composed by him.

please correct me if there are mistake... :x):


i've heard rumors here and there that Konseki/Kako is actually a Chinese song. does anyone know if this is true or not? also, if it is true, does anyone know the name of the Chinese song?

edit//my bad. this is the "did you know section" i should at least put some interesting things in, instead of asking just what i want to know...

so here's Did You Know?
1) Nino joined Johnny & Associates when he was thirteen
2) Before Arashi, Nino was in MAIN with Matsumoto Jun, Ikuta Toma and Aiba Masaki, Best Beat Boys (B.B.B) and Beatiful American Dreams (B.A.D) with Aiba Masaki.
3) Nino once planned to go to America to study directing/producing by December 1999, but gave it up when his debut as Arashi was announced in September.
4) Nino can play (among others) guitar, bass, piano, drums and harmonica. He is also good at gymnastics and cooking.
5) Nino's hobbies include singing, guitar-playing, music production, creative writing (songs, fiction, etc), baseball, and videogames <--i think that one is more than a hobby. i saw this video where arashi was filming some MV and while the director was giving directions, nino was playing on his gameboy...the AMAZING thing was that when they went back on set to film, he did everything PERFECTLY. geez he's so talented.
6) Shohas the highest education among Arashi, being a graduate of Faculty of Economics, Keio University, and has become the inspiration for younger Johnny's idols such as NEWS members to pursue higher education after graduating from high school<--awww how cute!!
7) Sho is also a known promoter of education towards today's youth in Japan, being spokesperson for Jounan Yobiko, a reknown enrichment cram school back in early 2005.

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 23, 2008, 02:13:26 PM
I knew that. I think that was one of the reasons why he and Sho went to the headquarters in summer time to tell Johnny-san that they weren't interested in debuting. Thankfully, the old man wasn't at his office!

It was then when Sho, looking at a pile of paper on Johnny-san's desk (Sho, Sho, what are you doing spying around like that?) and saw the list of names for the new group, on the second page, they saw the kanji most Arashians know best...

But yeah, I'm always thinking of what would have happened if they hadn't debuted, seeing as Nino, Sho and Ohno wanted to quit for several reasons and Aiba wasn't too sure about what to do. The only one who never harboured thoughts of quitting was Jun who, I'll always say, was born to be the star he is now.

i knew that ikuta toma, nino, jun and aiba were good friends in jr time seing lotsa clips when they were together back then, but i didn't know that they were in a group. thanx for the info!

as to the making of arashi, i thought jun was contemplating in the beginning whether he wants to debut 'in' arashi. this is not a 'did u know?' yet, but i'll confirm again once i checked with my arashi database ya.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 24, 2008, 03:00:47 PM
No, no, from all the info we have, I think that Jun was the only one who never had any doubts about debuting with Arashi. The other four were a lot less enthusiastic about the idea, to the point that Nino, Ohno and Sho wanted to quit JE altogether. Aiba wasn't even aware of the whole thing so he sincerely said that he was never given the time to think about it.

But yeah, Jun was the only one who was happy about the fact that he was going to debut. If you can find the Hey x3 Interview I mentioned on my post above you'll see what I mean.

Anyone who saw Heyx3 episode would know that they saw the name "? - Questions".  Arashi always talk about how lucky they were that they got Arashi and not Questions.  But did you know in Johnny Jr. there is really a group called Questions? [Johnny Jr. always have weird names... Kiss my ftz  :dunno1: something like that anyways... weird...]  I wonder how they feel about their group name if they knew that Arashi were mocking it...

To be honest, I don't think they mind all that much, after all, Arashi have had to put up with many people making fun of their name, haven't they? I'm just grateful that they picked Arashi as a name, can you imagine if they had been called Questions? I mean, what would that make us fans? Questioners doesn't sound anywhere near as cool as Arashians...

Post by: Sanae on January 28, 2008, 04:04:08 PM
During Hey x 3! they've made fun of the kanji numerous times (one saying that if they took the 'mountain', they were just 'wind' because the kanji used to say 'arashi' is composed by the kanjis used to say 'mountain' and 'wind')

Also, I think it happened during their debut that it started to rain and the announcer said something like 'it must be because Arashi (storm) are here!' and you know how Aiba said that Arashi were going to cause 'a storm throughout the world'? In Utaban, there was a writing asking if, so far, Arashi had only managed to cause 'some light rain...'

But the boys are quite cool with it, in fact, they are the first ones who make fun of themselves...

I don't think the boys made a big deal out of it.. Because if they have, we would've heard of it.. But they've made fun of it too? I've never heard of that.

yup.. if u watched the minor sport when they have to go to the waterfall and slide down (gomen, i dunno what this sport's called, i'm just a sport idiot like sho).. he said that he's afraid of height and you can really see his scared face to do that sport.. and kept on telling them it is so dangerous.. better not do it..

he is so funny

That's called 'canyoning' and I've done it. It's heaps of fun!

But yeah, Sho's terrified of heights and will try not to do anything that will get him high up (like, for instance, those bungee jumping thingies from the Fight Song, he refused to practice with them until he was literally forced by Nino...)

Can you guys imagine him doing something like the MJ Walk?

That's called 'canyoning' and I've done it. It's heaps of fun!

But yeah, Sho's terrified of heights and will try not to do anything that will get him high up (like, for instance, those bungee jumping thingies from the Fight Song, he refused to practice with them until he was literally forced by Nino...)

Can you guys imagine him doing something like the MJ Walk?

just to react. maybe he'd have a heart attack!!!

Post by: Sanae on January 28, 2008, 10:37:49 PM
Yeah, I wouldn't blame him though. I've done pretty crazy stuff when I was younger but, walking while hanging upside down 15 metres above the ground AND singing at the same time is not my idea of fun...no idea how Jun managed to pull it off. And now he's prepaired the MJ Jump. I'm seriously worried! Anyone is willing to throw wild guesses as to what it might be like?

And s-tei-chan, yeah, I meant the performance of the Time Concert. It was fun to watch but I can see how Sho might have had problems with it...

i'm also worried about the mj jump.. this guy sure got some crazy ideas to put in..

i think i got lots of similarity with sho, one is being sport idiot and scared to try something like mj walk or canoying.. i believe if he tries to do the mj walk.. he will not even have the energy to continue the concert.. his feet will just trembling and get weak.. and yes, maybe heart attack..  lol

(btw, look out for 2:08 when Nino pulls Aiba's pants down...too funny for words! And when then Aiba tells Jun what's happened, it looks almost like a kid telling his mummy that the other kids are nasty to him...awwww!)

Yeah, that's the reason why Nino didn't think Jun needed to practice with the elastic rope. Jun's crazy enough to love risking his life during the concerts which, like I said earlier, it makes it difficult for me to sleep well at night...

I know, the poor Sho must really hate heights to complain so loudly in front of everybody...

Now, something silly I read a while ago:

Did you know that when Aiba first joined JE and met little Jun, he thought that 'that kid' was really, really small? Jun, being as kind as ever, spent a few minutes showing Aiba the dance steps they were supposed to do.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

lol.. that's so sweet of jun.. but, if u see their old pic.. aiba was really tall (even now) and chibi jun is so small.. they looks like brothers..

did you know that 8 years ago, jun wants his gal friends to call him jun no suke.. lol.. this is really old-fashioned coz xxx no suke is used during samurai time, and suke means assistant.. lots of shogun(lords) have their assistant called xx no suke..

on last night's ans.. thay asked him whether he remembered what he said in the interview regarding this.. he didn't..  lol

Also, I think it happened during their debut that it started to rain and the announcer said something like 'it must be because Arashi (storm) are here!' and you know how Aiba said that Arashi were going to cause 'a storm throughout the world'? In Utaban, there was a writing asking if, so far, Arashi had only managed to cause 'some light rain...'

ouch!! but still, i think i like their name the best out of all the johnny's boys and not just because im an arashi fan. i dont really like it when groups are named after the members...i think its rather unoriginal...like KAT-TUN and Tackey and Tsubasa...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 29, 2008, 11:47:23 AM
Agreed 100%. I think Arashi really is the only 'marketable' name outside of Japan. Not only sounds cool but most of us can actually pronounce it. I'd love to challenge anyone non-Japanese to pronunce Kanjani eight-to...

LOOL>>> It's gonna sound like "Kong Johnny A Toe" xDDD;;.

I thought TakiTsuba's name was alright, KAT-TUN wasn't too bad, but I don't really like HSJ's name. I like the fact that Hey Say sounds like Heisei which is the period that the members were born in, but other than that, the JUMP part of it totally kills it...

Arashi really is a great name. I love how it's only one kanji and it's not extremely difficult to write.

It's not that i don't like T&T or KAT-TUN, but their names are just based off of band members' names, and as i said it's rather unoriginal, unlike arashi where, as lame as it may have sounded when aiba explained it (LOL but cute), has a "reason" or "purpose" behind it. to me, i think that represents a whole lot more than letters pieced together because of initials. but i still <3 T&T and KAT-TUN--just not as much as arashi. =D and i COMPLETELY agree with you on Hey! Say! Jump!. the "Hey! Say!" part was rather clever...but why "jump"????? @_@

I know that this is totally off topic but I laughed a lot when I watched the Domoto Kyoudai with HSJ and one of the kids, can't remember which one out of the TEN, said that at first he thought they were called Hey Say CHAMP!

I mean, what the heck...at least there was some reasoning behind the choice of Arashi: the letter A is the first in the Japanese phonetic alphabet so that they would always be on top if sorted aphabetically. Also, they did want to create a storm throughout the world! Even if, right now, as it was pointed out in Utaban, it's just a some light raining...

Ah everyone is so right. Bias aside, Arashi really is a great name. I do also happen to think that it's the best name out of all the Johnny's bands. (The name KAT-TUN already ticked me off for some reason even when I didn't know them yet.)

And at least they're actually already making light rain around the world. Arashi! Arashi! For Dream~

I'm glad you're enjoying it!

Speaking of the name Arashi, back when I first started to get addicted to this fandom, I read how it a was the first hiragana in charts and stuff ... and how it was the only Johnny's group that had one Kanji. I thought that was just brilliant. And you know, I won't mind light rain.. I wouldn't even mind light drizzle, anything is good!!

(With that said, I love how the sections of this forum is named, it's all very very creative.)

sorry if im asking this again..

anybody have a 'do you know' bout matsujun's family? aside from him havin a big sis, i know nothing of him.. at least i know who the other arashi's parents are.. we even know where aiba's restaurant is and how well sho's family is..

anythin on matsujun?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 29, 2008, 07:26:47 PM
Most of what I know from his parents, who live in the Ikekuburo district of Tokyo, is that they are even more reserved than Jun himself and that his family is not one who will talk much. Their main hobby, at least while Jun was living at home, was to play solitaire with the numerous computers the Matsumotos have. I think that his famous older sister moved out of the house about two to three years ago. Jun moved out sometime in late 2006 early 2007 and bought an apartment near what's considered the city center with money lent by JE. Funnily enough, it seems like Shun Oguri has also bought an apartment in the same block so that the two can see each other frequently.

Also, it seems like when Jun was beginning to be famous as a junior, his sister stopped bringing friends home or would not ask Jun for autographs when people asked her to ask him so that little Jun wouldn't be bothered by all of it. Later on she started bringing people home again but Jun would lock himself in his room to stay out of the way.

Unlike Ohno's mum though, Jun's mother rarely left him food ready for when he got home from work so Jun would only eat before going to bed if he found something edible in the kitchen. If he found nothing, he'd just go to bed.

Jun also said that his parents rarely come to his concerts/plays or watch his movies/dramas and, if they do, they won't comment on them. He said that he was cool with it and if he needed an opinion, he would ask his friends.

That's, in a nutshell, all I know about the Matsumoto family. Like I said, they are very, very reserved and you need to keep your eyes peeled in order to hear or read Jun talking freely about them...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on January 29, 2008, 08:48:31 PM
what a reserved family.. that's why i never heard him talking about his family..

i'm also confused with something.. some people said that nino's parents divorced and he's living with his mum.. is it true?? and seems that he's always talks about his mum only..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on January 30, 2008, 12:57:53 AM
ikekuburo? somehow ikekuburo west gate park comes to mind ;)

@sanae thanx for the info.. to think that he comes from such a reserved family.. hmm, a bit weird if u ask me.. somehow his family sounds like domyouji's.. very minimal conversation, super great big sis.. just that i dont think his family would be as rich as domyouji.. for sure!

i wonder if the colleagues from his parents workplace know that matsujun is their son..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 30, 2008, 01:14:51 AM
No probs. And I'm sure those who need to know from the Matsumoto's social and professional circles know that their son is a celebrity but, again, I don't think they'll be telling left and right that they're Jun's parents for they really are very reserved.

And yeah, his family is a bit like Domyouji minus the stupid amount of money (mind, you they're not poor either) and with the difference that Jun has never felt unloved, it's just that his parents I think are a bit like mine, they wanted their kids to be independent.

About Nino's family, I got told here that his parents are indeed divorced and that he lives with his mum, which makes me think that he changed his surname sometime before joining JE (as you may know, in Japan if your parents get divorced and your custody is given to your mum, you take up her maiden's name for she loses the right to use her husband's family name) so, I don't know what his father's surname is but I'm sure it's not Ninomiya and it'd be really weird not being able to call him Nino, wouldn't it?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Saigo on January 30, 2008, 01:58:46 AM
Wow...I am somehow amazed at Jun's Family info. No wonder he doesn't talk about them much... Seems like he isn't really attached to them. That would also explain his love of attention. Hehe.

Arigatou Sanae. I gained more respect for him again. (My judgement of him is usually unstable)

So Nino's parents really ARE divorced. Omoshire~


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 30, 2008, 02:29:27 AM
I'm happy I'm getting you to view Jun differently for I've always had my utmost respect for him. That said, I think that Jun's quiet and shy personality comes from growing up in a household where oral communication wasn't a given but, in my opinion, this has also equipped him with the ability to 'read' the atmosphere without having to speak to people. A common trait among all five of the Arashi members.

i read somewhere that nino's "real" name is aoki kazunari...but when i went back to try and find that site, i couldn't find it...so now i feel like i made it all up.  oops

Post by: Saigo on January 30, 2008, 02:35:02 AM
Ah stop the Jun likeable traits. It's making him climb higher in my mind (even if for only a microscopic length).

But really, that was good to know. Refreshing even. Growing in a household where communication is scarce would make a child yearn for attention on the outside and would also make him independent (Psychology much?). At least I know that his arrogance, obnoxiousness, and other not so hot features came from somewhere completely understandable.

Hmm... *sees Jun in a slightly different light again*. Too bad it would only take one rotten action (in my standards anyway) from him for me to see him a little over the 'bad-side'.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 30, 2008, 03:16:36 AM
Taisa, what you said about Nino kind of makes sense, he did play a character called Aoki Taiki in the 1998 drama 'Akimahende'. Unfortunately, I have no idea where we can find info regarding his father's surname, the only thing I know about him is that he's a Japanese Cuisine Sensei.

Now, about Jun's so-called arrogance, is more a self-defence mechanism for someone who is as super-sensitive as he is rather than an actual trait of his personality. Unfortunately, he's had to develop this 'shield' to protect himself from people who otherwise would take advantage of his extreme kindness. Saigo, I'd strongly recommend you to read Jun's 10000 word interview if you haven't already: it will most definitely change your mind regarding Jun, trust me.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Saigo on January 30, 2008, 03:44:18 AM
Ah. Since you recommend it so, I shall read it then. So far I've only read Ohmiya's. Actually I was surprised at Nino's. I wasn't expecting him to share quite a lot of his past in that interview.

And seeing from that pattern, I guess Jun's will be quite interesting as well? I've been having second thoughts since last year if I should read that, but you've convinced me to do so. Ahaha...

Though that self-defense mechanism of his keeps earning him bad points from others. Probably not in Japan since it goes with that country's 'culture' (Johnny Kitagawa really is a genius).

Anyway...*makes mental note to read it soon*

Here's the txt file of Nyanchan's translation, since it's difficult to find: http://www.mediafire.com/?1b9xtbvputd

And yes, it is very, very interesting, not to mention inspiring. Plus, that self-defence mechanism is partly due to his childhood, part due to the fact that I think he learned early on in his career that he had to create a showbiz persona to protect the private one. Also, I've always believed that within Arashi, he's taken it upon himself to get most of the attention (both bad and good) so that the other four can have a much easier life, mainly because he really is much better at dealing with it than the other four.

i agree. in appearances matsujun may seem to be extremely arrogant and at times even callous. but it's more because he is too sensitive and doesn't want to be hurt. more so, he reminds me of the type to take relationships very very seriously--nothing is considered a "fling" and sometimes i think if he's had a first love (probably), he would still remember after many years...

i'm not so sure about the taking up the attention for the other four, but i can definitely see where you're getting that from. that's also why i've always admired people in the showbiz. they have to create such an appealing persona to fulfill the curiosities of fandom while trying to protect what little private life they may have left and knowing very well that fans are most curious about their personal life.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 30, 2008, 04:39:04 AM
Well, as part of this thread's topic, did you know that Jun had a crush on a girl for THREE years and he only gave up when she told him that going out with him was impossible?

Now, that's the kind of persistance I admire so much in him.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: s-tei. on January 30, 2008, 06:15:07 AM
Jun's really spectacular when it comes to himself and the people around him. I feel that he's someone I want to be but at the same time feel like I would fail desperately..

Reading about Jun's family made me sad... It sounds as if he was lonely alot of the time when he was a child.

I recommend any fan of Arashi's to read the members' 10000 word interview.. They're all extremely inspiring and awesome.

i think a lot of people mistaken matsujun as being arrogant.. somehow i never see him as arrogant or i-know-i'm-sexy guy. i agreed that he's different, and sometimes his assumably arrogant side came out as either a protection, or because that's the kind of communication he knows the best. to me, he's just being honest, and some people misinterpret his intention by the way he said it.

somehow i see a lot of matsujun in me.. i mean more on the communication part.. we're the kind of people who only know one way of communicaing and when we finally found good friends, somehow it makes it ok for us to sometimes resort to this way of communicating while developing the 'way' that normal people usually communicate. the fame and the look.. that's totally him :blush2:

it's actually dangerous to be an honest people ne..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on January 30, 2008, 01:43:48 PM
yup.. i can see he's always honest in answering his question during interview.. he will just answer the question without really have to think for a long time.. unlike nino, who will stop for a few seconds before answering.. not that my ichiban is not honest.. it's just a difference on how they express their thought and feeling..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 30, 2008, 03:44:57 PM
What I've seen from the way they reply to their questions is this:

Sho - always give balanced, smart answers. He really is the most cerebral out of the five and his replies are somewhat cold, calculated ones. Even when he speaks about love, he'll do it in such a business-like manner that it gets a bit scary. I think that out of the five, he's the most down to earth one.

Ohno - he sometimes confuses me with his answers, sometimes he'll just get stuck at a topic (be it fishing or his art) or he'll give completely random replies that not even the interviewer, much less the reader, understand. Again, this is Da Riida-sama we're taking about, it's not like we can understand a genius so easily, ne?

Aiba - his answers are always amusing. He's just so naturally, childishly funny and it's obvious he's really saying the first thing that's come to his mind, without caring too much about what he's saying. Ettiquette and Aiba should definitely not be used in the same sentence...

Nino - Vague. It's the best way to describe his answers. He rarely goes into detail and most of his replies can be interpreted in many different ways for they could be applied to numerous kind of questions. His are the answers which I always find rather frustrating.

Jun - Honest and thought out. It's obvious he never stops thinking about stuff to the point that he sometimes is brooding rather than thinking and that shows in his long winded replies. He's the one who'll go into detail and you see that he's really thought about what he's saying.

that's actually what bothers me the most about nino. as much as i love him, his answers never quite answer the question, but you can't really say that they don't apply either and it bothers me how we rarely are given any clue to what's he's thinking. it makes me wonder if he's trying to hide something (like his true personality) or that he's just like this (which then makes me wonder if something made him like this...)

Nino has always been vague. In all of the interviews I've read and/or even documentaries made about him, he's always avoided questions that made people more aware of who he is inside. I have never heard him answer a question as straight up as Jun has...

This is probably the reason Nino is my least favourite.... (don't hit me..!!)

(On a totally different topic, I loved Nino's reaction when he's reading the letter Kikuchi Momoko's daughter wrote to him... Sho-kun's reaction afterwards is awesome too~~)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on January 30, 2008, 06:21:45 PM
the way i see them answering Qs and the answers itself:

sho: he thinks thoroughly the consequences of his answers.. to him and to his family.. especially his family.. i think that's why his answer is more of what u can say 'out of the txtbook' answers.. but when it comes to personal Qs, like proposal.. he's just not the romantic type laa.. in a funny way ;) but he's sure a good father figure..

aiba: he speaks the first thing that's pop up in his head.. he's sincere in that way.. on personal Qs, he did give a thought about it.. and then lost it again and he continue with what's in his head.. again.. his the type that don't lie.. if he lies, u'll know..

nino: if he thinks that the Qs are not important to him.. he'll be vague with the answers.. if it is Qs that he finds interesting, his answers are well-thought, and meaningful (maybe bcuz we rarely see him being serious in answering Qs~) remember the proposal in AnS? i was shocked by his!

ohno: he tried.. he really tries to give good answers, but he's just too funny till the point when he become seriuos in answering, and we still find it funny.. that's why sometimes i feel that he's tired of actually giving good answers and just continue blurting out funny stuff..

jun: honest.. brutally honest.. in whatever Qs u give him, even if he says the first thing that comes up in his head or an answer that make him pause for 10secs, it'll be an honest answer. his answers are the kinda answers that u know u cant play around with.

Also the way I see it, it seems Nino is quite the sensitive one as well. His answers in such interviews should be enough of clues. I can't really blame him due to his equally problematic and sad childhood issues. And I guess that's also one of the things that makes him so interesting to me.

Ohno... everything, as in everything he does just makes him more adorable. And so does his out-of-this-world answers. Ahaha.... Tensai dakara, na? (tabun lol)

Nino's vague replies are the equivalent of Jun's so-called arrogance: they're two ways of protecting their private persona. By giving as little info about what's going on inside his head as possible, Nino hopes that he'll keep a large part of himself unknown to the rest of us.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: s-tei. on January 31, 2008, 08:17:02 AM
In many ways Nino is just as Tsundere as Jun, possibly even more than Jun.

I think Nino is the most mysterious member of Arashi. I never know what he's thinking about, a large part due to his vagueness...

Post by: leen_zhihai on January 31, 2008, 10:27:13 AM
nino's vague answer is really frustrating especially if he's ur ichiban.. of course we want to know more about him.. but, his answer won't give you any idea what the true answer is.. but, sometimes I enjoy it too.. mysterious guy, that'cool.. lol

Post by: salwa on January 31, 2008, 10:53:17 AM
nino is not someone that i look by what he says, but what he does..

he might says very vague things, but the fact that he's always the first to watch other members butai/drama/film shows that he cares enough.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on January 31, 2008, 11:24:25 AM
yes.. he always among the first to watch.. he just like me, will never show my feeling through words but through action..

btw, back to the thread topic..

did you know that ohno had actually describe his bathing procedure in his arashi discovery sometimes last year? Here's the translation

Including shampoo, do you guys have particular preferences?
I have no such, well, I don’t take time to bathe. Swift, I am. Get out in 5~6 minutes.
Well really, I shampoo in the beginning, then, rinse.
Begin with my left arm… then, wash around my neck… then, wash my right arm and… move into my chest … and wash my belly! then! … then wash fmgfm… then, wash my thighs, wash my right foot, wash my left foot, and finally wash my back, like that. Yes. I keep on washing!
That’s all, from Ohno Satoshi!


great mental picture

hi minna..i'm new in this thread...yoroshiku..

but sorry if i turn out this thread to "i want to know.."

i just wanna know wether the arashi's members can play any music instruments, esp riida n jun..
i've seen nino playing guitar n piano, sho playing piano n aiba-chan playing harmonica.never seen riida n jun. :bow3:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 31, 2008, 06:38:06 PM
As far as I know, playing an instrument is not among Jun's nor Riida's many artistic abilities. Again, they probably don't need it, otherwise they would have learned it, wouldn't they? (although I have seen Jun playing the piano in HYD but I think he was just acting, wasn't he?)

Now, another 'did you know?' for all the Nino ichibaners: did you know that for a few instants, right before every concert, Nino gets so nervous that sometimes feels like throwing up? I find this to be quite interesting for I never expected him to feel such an emotion, it just comes to show that, contrary to popular belief, Neeners is after all a human being...

I didn't know that... But I remember during a D no Arashi special live, the other members said that Nino was the most relaxed before a concert and that none of them really get nervous. Maybe Nino doesn't show that side of him to them...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on January 31, 2008, 08:18:33 PM
Well, it probably has to do with the fact that a) it only lasts for a few instants and; b) what's the point of telling the other four that he's nervous? That'll only make EVERYONE even more nervous. BTW, I got this info from this English subbed documentary I found in Veoh: http://www.veoh.com/videos/v3316893zGRcCYF3 a must-watch for any Nino ichibaners.

I've always said that Nino is possibly the member that keeps his feelings to himself the most and that's not always a positive thing. I honestly think that out of all five members, his is the most complicated personality for he can go from being as serious as Jun (or more) to act like a total baka like Aiba-chan at his hyperest. To be honest, his is the member whose personality intrigues the most because you really never know what to expect from him.

exactly sanae-chan, and that makes me loves him so much.. so unexpected..

he can be a cute-evil prankster.. and yet composing a tear-jerker songs and
he can actually cry on the spot (as we see in mma)

sugoii nino!!


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 03, 2008, 12:13:43 AM
Sugoi Nino indeed!

Okay, this is probably a pretty well known fact by 'old-school-Arashians' but, did you know that Aiba-chan was born the same exact date as Shun Oguri (both were born on Dec 24th 1982) and both happen to be quite close friends with Jun, coincidence? I say not...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

ano...i think oguri shun's birthday is actually on 12/26/1982, 2 days after aiba's. but that's really close ne. and it's true that both aiba and shun are really good friends with jun. just imagine arashi and shun having one big party (that lasts 3 days) all together celebrating aiba and shun's b-days and christmas! :winky:

Post by: ai_yazawa on February 03, 2008, 04:17:43 AM
nino has many different sides..but i always feel that deep inside, he is a lonely person..he keep a lot of things to himself, but maybe the divorcement of his parents that made him as self-protective as he is right now..

i dont really mind if he made sad songs as long as it helps him release things that he bottles inside..

I swear I saw it on d-wiki as Dec 24th, now though it says 26th...odd...methinks me getting old... :(

At any rate, it's a brilliant idea and, anything involving Aiba is bound to be awesomely crazy. Anyone wants to try and guess what the theme of the party would be? My vote goes for a massive A no Arashi special with Shun Oguri...

But yes, Shun and Jun are pretty close and, in fact, Shun let them use his radio show to do a special All Night Nippon for the release of Kiiroi Namida and We Can Make It. I thought that it was awfully good of him to do so. Not to mention when Jun was invited as guest and they exchanged their HYD roles and we had Shun reading Domyoji's lines and Jun reading Rui's, then there was Abe reading Sojiro's lines and Shota reading Akira's...it was so funny!

...okay, this comes from a convo in Jun's thread but I thought it may interest those of you who would like to watch the boys' shows live. Kamu-chan, who is a genius, has found this Keyhole software that you can install in less than two minutes (go to: http://www.v2p.jp/video/Viewer/ and click on the .exe file you'll find there) and, if everything works as it should, you should get something like this:

(http://img517.imageshack.us/img517/2377/immaginely2.png)


Now, the channel numbers always seem to change but the headers should remain always the same. Also, the quality of the video/audio depends greately on your internet connection so, the faster it is, the better you'll see/hear everything...

Okay, this is the TV schedule for all Arashi-related shows in Japanese Standard Time. You need to convert it to your time-zone, (if you're not sure check this: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ ) :

Mondays on Nihon Television (NTV): 10:54pm News Zero (Sho) followed by Arashi no Shukudai-kun at 11:5pm.
Saturdays on Fuji Television: 1pm Golden Rush Arashi.
Saturdays on Nihon Television (NTV): 7pm Tensai! Shimura Doubutsuen (Aiba)

Ah, Utaban is on Wednesday on TBS at 7:54pm so keep an eye on that because as you know, Feb 14th Arashi will be there to promote their new single.

I hope it helps!

for those who wants to know about ohno's fragrance.. he actually talked about this during arashi discovery sometimes last year.. but, he said he won't tell what kind of fragrance is that..

hint:
he said he got to know about it from his friend when he was 16.. so, what brand is already in japan market for that 10 years.. some people in vox were saying it may be calvin klein coz it kinda popular among the students at that time..

No kidding. I found out that there is a 14 hour difference between here and Tokyo, Japan and realized that if I were to watch Shukudai-kun live I would have to skip classes on Monday mornings.. Unfortunately, I have skipped so much that I really can't anymore. (Here's to hoping I'll wake up early enough to get to class tomorrow..) Anyways, the point is, I went to the calendar and checked when I was having a Monday holiday, and it turns out it'll be in two weeks..~~ Kyyyaaaaaaaaaa, so looking forward to it =).

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 04, 2008, 07:36:12 PM
Okay, under CNBC, you should get Fuji TV where they're now showing Hey! Hey! Hey!; after the two channels with that Japanese actress, you have Asahi TV and, below that, it's TBS. Under that, we have Fuji TV again (no idea why there are two different channels showing the same thing...) Then we have TV Tokyo (they're showing commercials at the moment) and immediately underneath, it's the famous yomiyomi channel, otherwise known as NTV that's showing some sort of talk show/variety. Then we have the BSNippon channel which seems to be part of the NTV group and they're showing some drama now.

Ah, I forgot, Yahoo Japan has the realtime TV listings for those of you whose computer can display kanji:

i also experenced difficulty finding the channel.. but i'm so happy that it works super-fast..

Don't worry, I'm still trying to figure out two of the channels there and it's very confusing that they keep changing the order in which they're listed. Kamu-chan isn't going to be impressed when she finds out...

Im still not happy :/ BUT, this morning I was super awake cause I was getting ready to News Zero WAH! Sho-kun! But it also made me hella pissed off. Why does News Zero have to last so long......I totally missed AnS. Not to mention I had to click through all of the freakin channels just to find News Zero... Right now though I'm trying to find a streaming video recorder that I can leave on for when I go to school so I can watch AnS when I get home on mondays. If I find a good one I'll post a link so you guys can get it.

I went looking for video recorders too, but didn't come up with anything good. Are there any that would let you record for 1+ hours?

For channel identification purposes, Sanae-chan has put up an easy screenshot on the following post.

I've updated the list with other channels we've been able to identify:

(http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/7022/keyholechannellistuv5.jpg)

I know it sounds silly but, if you can't see the kanji, count the little squares, that should give you a rough indication of what you have on your list (since the little bugger likes to change the order of the channels...)

Also, if you happen to figure out the two channels with the ??? let us know! So far, I think one of them is some sort of rotative, meaning that it keeps changing the channel that it's broadcasted randomly, because I've seen it showing TV Asahi, NTV and TBS in different moments of the day.

Is the channel for Music Station in the list?
They once said (when Nino was talking about being famous in Paris) that you could see MS on one of the JPop French channel but I never found it.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 05, 2008, 01:04:38 AM
Yes. Music Station is on every Friday at 8pm (JST) on TV Asahi.

I'm still trying to figure out if one of the two unidentified channels happens to be NHK so we can also watch Shounen Club but, so far, no luck...

okay a couple of questions...
~What time does Utaban come on?
and
~When is AnS going to be moved to its golden time?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: beach_bum1303 on February 05, 2008, 08:52:10 AM
I think Utaban comes on Thursdays at 8pm Tokyo-time, does it not?

As for AnS.. I don't know. (^_^")

Ok I took the liberty of making this TV Schedule for you guys that have KeyHole. Shown are all of Arashis' shows plus the popular shows

Note: Don't pay any attention to the "My Time" Column. That is when the shows air in my time. You can always edit that out and put the time these shows are shown in your region

Kamu-chan rocks!

Just for my own convinience, I've used your schedule as a template to make one for myself, listing the times in GMT+1 (Western Europe's Time) and adding the Key Hole Equivalent for each of the channels. This way I have everything I need to know in one single image:

(http://img265.imageshack.us/img265/6646/keyholeshowlistkx5.jpg)
(It doesn't look as pretty as Kamu-chan's, I know...*blushes*)

I think this may come useful for people who, like me, live in Europe (for UK's time, just take one hour off) also, as a reminder, sometime in March the time difference between Europe and Japan will go back to being 7 hours, instead of the 8 hour-difference we have now.

Thank you so much, Sanae-chan! That makes it easier for me
Starting next week, I hope I can catch a lot of Arashi's appearances live!

Post by: Sanae on February 05, 2008, 07:18:06 PM
I know!! That's so cool I've been doing the happy dance ever since I realised that I could watch everything live. The only thing I'm just not too happy about the fact that GRA is at 5 am in the freaking morning...thank goodness it's on Saturday...

The times I posted are European Standard Time (GMT + 1) And yes, you're right, Hey! Hey! Hey! should be listed under Monday not Sunday. Also, I've just found out through Fuji TV's official website that the next show is not going to be on this coming Monday but February 18th which is when Arashi will be performing Step and Go, isn't it?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: khamtanh on February 06, 2008, 07:22:05 AM
I thought it was Mon. but if the website says differently then I would go with that. Besides we can always watch and find out. (even if it is 5am on a Monday morning for me -_- :sleep2:)

It definitely says Monday (I checked in the TV station's official website) but there won't be a Hey x 3 show this coming one. The next show is on Feb 18th and it's when Arashi will be guests.

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 06, 2008, 05:51:38 PM
Okay, I'm reposting this because Kamu-chan kindly made me notice that Hey x 3 was listed under the wrong day and, I've also changed the times to Japanese Standard Time since, silly me, I forgot that most of you guys live in Asia so, it's much easier for you to add one or two hours rather than converting from European time, ne? It should also make it easier for those of you who live in the US to calculate things (namely Kamu-chan and quite a few others)

If you happen to spot a mistake or you want to add something, please let us know, okay? Remember I only copied this and, even though I have done my best to check its accuracy, I can't guarantee it'll be 100% correct.

I don't know if anybody knows this but its in their book 'arashigoto' which reflects back on the first 5 yrs as arashi so its quite old but theres an interview which asks them 'if you had to choose which member would choose as your girlfriend. their answers:

Aiba-chan: sho-kun! coz his hot.
MatsuJun: Ohno-kun. coz I don't get bored when I'm with him.
Nino: Aiba-chan. coz its easier with him.
Oh-chan: Aiba-kun. coz his like a brother. (I think he means he feels close to him like a brother...but not sure)
Sakurai: Aiba-kun.

there you go. theres more funny bits so I might write some down later.

there was a Mago Mago talk where the guys had to answer that question again.

Ohno picked Nino
Sho picked Aiba
Matsujun picked Sho...

so I guess they change their minds. And then there was that one Shounen Club clip where Matsujun picked Nino. Which leads me to believe that it's all scripted xD...

Well... even if it is scripted... They're so funny to watch...
I remembered when they were talking about farts...
Hah.. that was so funny I crack myself up every time i remember it...
lol XD

They were asking who had the smelliest fart and it turned out in this order:
Oh-chan
Aiba-chan
Sho
MatsuJun
Nino

Its because they say Oh-chan eats the most... and well Nino eats less...
then it became like who had the loudest...
And they were all picking on Jun cause they don't hear him fart and he was trying to defend himself saying he does fart but he only does it silently...
lol lol XD

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: gwendy0925 on February 08, 2008, 02:28:23 PM
Yeah he is. But I wouldn't think that he would admit it. He seems like a silent farter who just smiles to himself about the fact that he farted, but would never actually admit it.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: s-tei. on February 08, 2008, 02:29:26 PM
Yeah, he is like that.

I think Jun is a bit of a perfectionist; he hates being imperfect because he cares about little things and how people think of him. When it comes to farting, I think he would think it's a "disgusting" thing that would "tarnish" his image, so he doesn't admit to things like that..

That may be a bit extreme.. Do you guys agree or disagree with it?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on February 08, 2008, 02:31:35 PM

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: gwendy0925 on February 08, 2008, 02:34:51 PM
I agree too. That's probably why him admitting that he farts silently is so funny. It's just so expected of him. It kind of makes me laugh. He is always defending himself. So I imagine that he was torn between defending himself and admitting that he actually farts. But saying that it is silent makes it even worse. Because now I am going to watch him and wonder if he is silently farting.

Post by: Sanae on February 08, 2008, 06:07:27 PM
What's the big deal? Seriously...he's a human being and it's normal that certain phenomena occur when you are a human being. Now, I don't think he goes around farting, I'm sure Jun probably does what I believe most people do when the occasion calls for it: goes to the bathroom.

*gets ready to be bashed*

That said, did you know that one of the main reasons why Ohno didn't quit Johnny's was because he hadn't found a different job and didn't want his parents to be worried because he was unemployed? Apparently, that was the reason why he accepted Johnny-san's request to 'help out' with the recording of A.RA.SHI. Now, I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart all those employers who didn't want to hire Ohno. Can you imagine if someone had offered him a job??? I can't!

Also, in Johnny's Magazine vol. 37, the members of the then debuted groups were asked what they would do and who with if they had a say in the matter, this was Nakai-san's reply:

Quote
Probably not to form a group/unit but I would like to host "USO!Japan" together with Taichi.(laugh) I am sorry to say but I have not seen it yet but people around me tell me that it is interesting. It will be a good to have interaction with Arashi & Juniors.(laugh)

I find it adorable that he wanted to interact with Arashi! Of course, that was sometime in late 2001, early 2002 and therefore before his epic battles with Ohno...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

I think that Nakai really likes Arashi. I remember an episode of Utaban where he told them if they didn't do what he said, he would only invite KAT-TUN from then on. And he said it with a naughty look in his eye. I really think as far as popularity/talent goes, Arashi and SMAP are on a different playing field then the rest of the Johnnies.

100% agreed. In fact, I've always maintained that Arashi are SMAP's true heirs and Nakai-san seems to see it that way too.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: s-tei. on February 08, 2008, 08:24:45 PM
Yeah, I think Nakai likes them alot too. Or else, I don't think he would ever live with all those fights with Ohno. And if he didn't, Taka-san would never tell Ohno what to say to piss off Nakai.

I think Ogu-san really likes Arashi too and it seems that he enjoys doing homework with Arashi alot (OMG, I'm lame.). I think the boys respect Ogu-san and likes him a lot in return too.

Yeah, you're right.
At first, I didn't like Nakai. I thought 'Why the heck is this guy talking to my precious Oh-chan like that?!' lol        I didn't even know he was in SMAP back then ^^  But now I know he really likes Arashi and he supports them a lot. Now I'm looking forward to the next Utaban (and the next 'manly' battle between Riidaa and Nakai)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: gwendy0925 on February 08, 2008, 09:11:18 PM
It's extra funny because Nakai is the 'leader' of Arashi. So it's like leader vs. leader.

As far as how Ogura-san feels about Arashi... well this explains it all:

Maybe he already has...I've got this secret fantasy that at least one of the boys or someone who knows them well is lurking around the fansites to check what the fans are saying about them. IF that's so, I can only imagine the faces of the boys when they find out about our numerous plans to kidnap them and the ever popular bucket.

I've seen that a couple of times. Ogu-san is really awesome!

I rarely see Arashi with KinKi Kids alot though. Back when I saw my first episode of Doumoto Kyoudai with NEWS, I really wanted to see Arashi on there too especially with the One Question One Answer segment, I was sure it'll be a whole bucket of laughs. But I think the reason why they haven't appeared on it is because KinKi and Arashi are two of the most popular groups in Johnny's and that they are huge competitors with each other in the same industry and putting them together would create some sort of clash between the fanbases... What do you think?



Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 09, 2008, 04:07:57 AM
I might be over optimistic but I think that, whereas is a fact that KinKi Kids and Arashi are arguably the most popular JE units, I believe that the reason why they are never each other's guests is precisely because of the fact that, being both so popular, they use their popularity (and their respective show's high ratings) to 'help' other groups/artists promote themselves. Maybe JE think that to have one as guest on the other group's show would be a bad marketing move. You know how unreasonable JE sometimes are...

That said, it would be hilarious to see Arashi in the One Question, One Answer corner. I wonder what the KinKi Kids would ask them. I'd be especially curious to see what they ask to Jun, considering that it's a known fact that he joined JE precisely because of KinKi Kids.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: s-tei. on February 09, 2008, 04:11:29 AM
Actually, that exactly what I think too, and it makes sense somewhat.

Yes, it would be absolutely hilarious if Arashi ever did One Question One Answer. I wonder what KinKi thinks of OMSK..

Post by: khamtanh on February 09, 2008, 04:31:09 AM
Can you just imagine Arashi with one of their friends that can read and speak English. Their all in front of the computer and Matsujun points to a particular post on this thread and asks what its says and their friends starts translating

::blah..blah...kidnap....Arashi....eh?...bucket::

Then they all turn and look at Riida while he's got that blank expression on his face...


hahaha :chair:

Minna...I vote that, from now on, any kidnapping plans or chats involving 'Ze Bucket' must be done using a secret code. We don't want Sho or anyone else to find out about our plans, do we?

For instance, we can say something like: at the end of the dream, we get the flowers locked in the greenhouse so that we can water them. (Highlight to translate: When they finish singing 'Arashi, Arashi, for dream...' we kidnap them, take them to an onsen where we'll be locking them up...' )

Either that, or we limit ourselves to using the PM system...LOL.

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Purity on February 09, 2008, 07:58:47 PM
Yeah, he is like that.

I think Jun is a bit of a perfectionist; he hates being imperfect because he cares about little things and how people think of him. When it comes to farting, I think he would think it's a "disgusting" thing that would "tarnish" his image, so he doesn't admit to things like that..

That may be a bit extreme.. Do you guys agree or disagree with it?


 I am with Matsu-cun concerning this matter.. cuz i seek for perfection as well ... though  being human means being imperfect.. but as for things like farting! it is polite not admitting them i think so i am with him

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 09, 2008, 08:44:12 PM
And Leen-chan is asking because it's a known fact that Virgos (like Jun and Leen) tend to be perfectionists...but, looking at your horoscope icon I see you're Pisces so probably you're just very polite, ne?? LOL.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on February 09, 2008, 09:04:20 PM
brilliant sanae-chan!! exactly what i'm trying to say.. hehe.. i forgot we have this horoscope icon there..  lol

just that after reading purity's and s-tei's post about him being perfectionist that remind me of how i always in denial when everybody kept saying virgo is perfectionist (i thought i'm not).. but after reading all about jun, i found i've a lot of similarities with him.. and it's remind me of how we both are virgos.. so.. it might be true.. virgos are perfectionist..


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 09, 2008, 09:11:05 PM
First sign that you ARE a perfectionist is when you DENY that you're one. Even Jun himself has had the guts to say that he ISN'T a perfectionist...LOL (Who is he trying to fool, I wonder??)

Now, speaking seriously, he really is a perfectionist but precisely because he knows that he still has a long way to go before he'll be perfect. It's his constant fight to reach that perfection that makes him have that fantastic self-drive of his that most people admire him for. (Maybe Leen-chan is the same way too...)


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: leen_zhihai on February 09, 2008, 09:27:07 PM
so true.. that's the imperfection that drives him to work harder.. sanae-chan is always good in making us loving Jun more (not that we never love him, i mean loving him more).. and just like you, his hard work is the thing i admire most.. i believe that he have been receiving a lot of critics regarding his singing and acting career, plus the fact that he didn't went through any audition.. but he never seems to be pulled down by that and keep on provig to others he deserve to get what he have now.. and yet, he still working to be better..

p/s- sanae-chan, i think i'm like that...lol.. turning into big-headed nino


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 09, 2008, 09:36:47 PM
Hey, it's all cool if you turn into someone like Nino, he's a pretty cool guy too!

And yes, I guess that for Jun is not easy to be in the center of the attention all the time whether he likes it or not but that's the main reason he's become so tough over the years. Also because someone had to do their job and out of the five of them, Jun seems to be the one who can handle his status as 'star' better. He's the group's diva after all...LOL.

I've been telling you all... leave Sho to me.  I will distract him (hit him over the head with something, tie up his unconscious body, and drag him to my house). You guys just worry about the other 4. I'll stop by the store and buy 5 buckets too...

Gwendy, just get four buckets: I'm sure Riida's got his with him at all times. And, okay, you're in charge of Sho, Kamu-chan is in charge of Riida and Leen-chan takes care of Nino, now, I'm going to need help with Jun, Sloth, I can count on you, can't I? Plus, who is in charge of Aiba-chan? Whoever it is, I wish her luck, she's gonna need it!

Aiba will be easy... just make a trail of karage leading to a storage closet and once he goes inside, lock him in. And when he shouts to be let out, convince him that there's been a nuclear fall-out and he's better off in the closet. When he faints from starvation tie him up and voila.

Action Plan A: I tell him that I've got an endless supply of mango and fresh fruit for his morning juices but that he's got to come and get it from the store room. Once he's there, we lock him up, letting him go just when he's promised he won't retaliate or he's just too tired to be harmful.

If Plan A fails, switch to plan B: Tell him that we have the rest of Arashi and he must come quietly or else... :naughty:

Arashi to host prime time variety show

Mon, February 4, 2008 (3:38pm EST)

As part of TBS's programming shuffle this spring, the network's Thursday 10:00pm drama time slot is being turned into a variety show slot, occupied by a currently-unnamed show hosted by popular group Arashi.

TBS recently revealed that its Saturday 8:00pm block is switching from variety to drama. The swap of the two time slots is motivated by concerns about falling ratings, and the network hopes that Arashi can provide a much-needed boost.

The Thursday slot has become well-established as a drama block for the station, but ratings have been low in recent years. Dramas in that time slot face direct competition from Fuji TV, which has meanwhile managed to broadcast several hit shows, including "Iryu 2," "Dr. Coto's Clinic 2006," and "Densha Otoko." Other networks also have successful shows airing at the same time: "Downtown DX" (NTV) and "Houdou Station" (TV Asahi). TBS has decided to shift its strategy, focusing more on attracting older teens and twenty-somethings.

Arashi's show is their first time hosting during "golden time" (7pm-10pm). It will apparently deal with social and cultural topics. Producer Saori Hirata is in charge of the program. Broadcast begins in April.

That was my plan xD Karage is a fried food. In this case it's fried chicken which is Aiba's favorite food.
Apparently he goes nuts over it and even has it for breakfast:

You have no idea of the double-entendre this sentence has in British English. In case you're wondering, a 'bird' it's also a slang word for 'girl' so you can also read this as 'Aiba is the ladies' man'

From Wiktionary:

Noun:
 
bird (plural birds)

3. (UK, slang) A girl or woman considered sexually attractive, as used by a man.
Who’s that bird?

At any rate, both meanings still make the sentence true: Aiba is the bird man, give him a girl an his karage and he's a happy man (and if he's got Sho or Jun anywhere near all the better, ne minna?)

Yes, it does. Since 'chick' is a small chicken and they are generally cute. But, whereas 'bird' is most of the time quite offensive, 'chick' is more widely used, even amongst women.

This British Slang Lesson was brought to you by Arashian.com  :p

I would say chick is offensive too. It is just more main-stream than bird (which was really only widely used in the 60's and 70's). I don't like it when I get called 'chick'.

haha it does sound kind of offensive i guess :heehee:

nobody ever calls girls chick or bird here so i never had the experience :laugh2:

In the UK, both terms are still very much in use and, like I said, 'bird' is quite offensive and you'll never hear it in polit conversation. Now, a girl calling her girlfriend 'chick' is not so uncommon and girls sometimes even use it to refer to themselves, i.e. : 'I'm a happy chick...'

An entirely different matter is if the word is used by a man in a derisive manner, then it becomes as offensive as 'bird'.

Well maybe chick isn't offensive over there, but here in the US, it's still not a polite thing to call someone. Calling someone 'chick' is disrespectful here and I get very annoyed when people call me that. Usually when someone uses 'chick' here, it is disrespectful (maybe it's the british equivalent of 'bird'). Like, "Look at what that chick is wearing!" I don't hear people call their girlfriends 'chick', but I will tell you in the past few years it's been popular for girls to call their girlfriends 'slut' and 'bitch' (probably thanks to Paris Hilton).

If someone called me any of the above there would be a seriously beat-down. No one calls me slut. Except Sho... and only in the bedroom... teehee...

Sakuraiba is always sweet, no matter how you look at it.

Now, did you know that Jun's 'lucky guesses' in the GRA episode about soba weren't so 'lucky'? In fact, he said in his Hanamaru Cafe interview in 2005 that he had been taught how to eat soba properly when he got teased about the fact that eating soba he looked as refined as Domyoji.

Okay, this may be very OLD news for, in fact, this happened ten years ago but I'm posting it now since I just found out: did you know that Aiba and Jun have not only worked in their first drama ever (Miman City) but also the two of them starred in their first movie ever together. It was a mild-horror movie called Shinjuku Boy Detectives and was released in 1998 so, counting the two Pikanchi and Kiiroi Namida, the Junaiba pair has worked together more often than any of the other boys.

i watch shinjuku boy detective. Jun as a nerd is funny, there also k8 yoko, kyoky fukuda and one two more girl, i tried to remember their name. The story is kind of boring. BUt jun and aiba are pretty cute.

I've just watched it and, to be honest, I found it quite interesting, maybe I'm just weird that way. It felt like watching one of those lovely sci-fi Japanese movies with hilarious FX with the plus of having Jun and Aiba in their chibi & cute version. Also, check this out, in this movie Kaga Mariko plays Mika's mother (Mika is the idol played by Fukada Kyoko) and, whereas that name may not say much to you, if I say that she played Domyoji's mother in HYD I'm sure you will all know who I'm talking about.

So HYD wasn't the first time she and Jun worked together. I have so much fun seeing all the different connections when I watch different Japanese things. Yeah, I know, I'm easily amused...LOL

Post by: gwendy0925 on February 18, 2008, 07:10:02 AM
I suppose Sanae would know the answer to this question. I remember one time I saw a clip on youtube of a drama or movie that Jun was in. In it, there were these girls talking about weddings and then Jun popped up and has this really girly fantasy of his wedding. Does anyone know where this is from?

And no, you don't need to watch the other ones. In fact, the two first seasons were played by none other than Tsuyoshi Domoto playing the same role that Jun did in the third series. Some say that Tsuyoshi's portrayal was truer to the manga but I found Jun's to be heck of a lot funnier and more interesting to watch. Again, I AM rather bias when it comes to Jun so...

I always wondered how Matsujun could possibly talk using 'keigo' language to Riidaa back then.... I mean, if you take a look at the 18-year-old Riidaa, he doesn't look so much as a sempai lol  But I think that's cute ^^
It makes me laugh to think that Nino never spoke to Riidaa that way (and he's what, 2 months older than Jun?)... He and Riidaa had already a close relationship <3


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 23, 2008, 09:42:19 PM
Well, we all know that Jun is super polite when he wants to be. Also, Nino and Riida...well theirs was some kind of 'love at the first sight' wasn't it?

Now, this isn't strictly a 'Did you know...' entry but I somehow feel the need to have my say regarding the work some of us are doing in bringing you the latest Arashi TV appearances and I'll start by saying that I know that most of you know this already but, I believe not all of you do so, here it goes:

When Arashi appears on TV, in order to get the file to your computer, someone needs to be in Japan to record it then transfer it to their computer so that the person can then work on the file, trimming the commercial breaks and sometimes re-encoding the file if needed. Then, this person needs to upload the file to one of the Clubbox accounts or similar systems. Then, a few of us get the unsubbed file and, if we have permission from the original uploader (which is not always automatically given) we can then redistribute them in either MU, MF, etc.

Then, in order to get it subbed, someone has to work on the translation, which takes a lot of time and effort, and someone else needs to time the translation so it matches with the video and re-encode the whole thing so we get the very nice subtitles. This, I don't need to tell you, is an ENORMOUS amount of work and, even if these guys do it for free, their work is still, technically speaking, protected by copyright. Which is why I perfectly understand and I support whichever policy they choose to apply when it comes to the redistribution of their work.

Lastly, it's us, the people who take the files from CB or wherever else, and spend HOURS downloading the files and then reuploading them to MU, MF, Veoh, etc. Kamu-chan, who has first hand experience with this, will be able to tell you how very frustrating it is dealing with Veoh and, I can tell you that those of us who have MegaUpload premium accounts, we all had to PAY for them so we could do what we do.

Now, I know that not everyone can afford to pay for a premium account and I'm aware that some file sharing systems (namely MegaUpload) don't work for some of you, which is why we nearly always offer an alternative download link so you can download things for free. If none of the options given work, well, then I think that it's your computer which has the problem, you really should get it checked by someone who knows about computers.

I hope that this explanation helps those very few of you who weren't fully aware that getting our daily dose of Arashi is a LOT of work, involving a LOT of people. I, for one, would like to thank everyone who takes part in the whole process for, if it weren't for them, I would not be able to enjoy all the genkiness Arashi brings with each and everyone of their shows.

hmm i didn't know that XD i looked it up ... still <3 arashi's version

it's like how one of yuna ito's songs [Fragile] has same intro as cool and soul of arashi.

thanks for the info!

edit:
people might already know but i'll post this anyway..

from wiki:
The melody of the song was originally used for Love Is All Around by a Swedish singer, Agnes Carlsson. The cover version of the song by Australian Idol, Ricki Lee was released on November 10, 2007.
....

The song was remade into Japanese for the boyband, Arashi, and was retitled "We Can Make It!". It featured the same melody, but its lyrics were not a direct translation, and a rap part was included. It debuted at the top of the Japanese charts upon its release on May 2, 2007.

Post by: Sanae on February 25, 2008, 08:56:36 AM
Maybe most of you know but, since there are a lot of new fans of Arashi around, I thought I'd explain what the whole C/D/G no Arashi was about, explaining that the letters stood for:

C no Arashi = Claim no Arashi - They helped several companies and/or governmental bodies which had to claim things from people. The show itself was a bit hard to watch sometimes, especially when the boys got bullied by the people they went to see. The meaning of the C changed to Contest no Arashi when D no Arashi started airing, here they held contests between several people who claimed to be the number ones of something in Japan. The guys then decided who won.

D no Arashi = Document no Arashi - Here they went and put into practice the different ideas that, standing at a ranking on their website, they got voted by the audience. Memorable episodes were the mole hunting and, of course, the numerous corners that this show spawned.

G no Arashi = Generosity no Arashi (the members explained in the first episode that the G stood for positive things that started with G, like grandness or generosity because the point of the show was to extend Arashi's generosity to a member of the audience who had submitted their request for attention)

Corners:

M no Arashi = Mendokusai no Arashi - Mendokusai meaning 'bothersome' for Jun was forced to do bothersome things for others with the intention of making him lose his cool.

O no Arashi = Ohno no Arashi - Ohno was given more or less artistic assignments in this corner, with hilarious consequences.

T no Arashi = Toukou no Arashi - Toukou meaning 'submissions' that were sent by the audience to Sho who proceeded to explain them to the guys trying, and often failing, to make them sound interesting. The guys trying hard not to laugh and to pretend they were bored was the most hilarious bit of the whole corner.

Ni no Arashi = Self-explanatory, methinks - Nino's version of 'Punked' that is to say, a series of pranks devised and put into practice by Arashi's enfant-terrible. The guys even tried ONCE to get back at Nino, failing miserably. He probably thought 'bloody amateurs...'

A no Arashi = Aiba no Arashi - A legend. Something that I swear they should allow Aiba to do in every Arashi show. You managed to learn things even when you were pissing yourself laughing. Only Aiba's super-high tension can manage to do that that.

aahhh, mendokusai no arashi.. so cool ne~
thanx to a no arashi we had the balloons during dome tour ;)

u guys might know this, but i just open wikipedia, and it seems that step and go is the second single which is not a tie-in (not attached to a drama or any other theme song) after nice no kokoroiki in 2002.. and for it's sale to be almost 200,000 (correct me if i'm wrong) this is such a big achievement  :saycheese:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on February 25, 2008, 01:25:57 PM
Actually, the last single which was not tied in to any dramas/CM/movies was Kitto Daijobu but Step and Go, with the 107,689 copies SaG sold in its first day, has beat Oricon's record of sales on the day of release!!

Also, if you check Oricon's ranking today, you'll see that the sales have increased a bit from yesterday's figure (1st day:107,689; 2nd day:39,384; 3rd day: 14,042; 4th day: 8,142; 5th day: 8,636) and that, in total, they've sold 177,893 copies of SaG in just five days.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on February 25, 2008, 04:19:19 PM
yup, it was kitto daijobou, i guess wikipedia got it mistaken with ken hirai's obsession with the song, so they thought it was associated somehow~ thanx sanae ;)

love so sweet was sold at 204,493 copies on the first week, hmm, not to sound negative here, but can we (the fans) achieved more than this?


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Aerhys07 on February 26, 2008, 10:54:37 PM

Ni no Arashi = Self-explanatory, methinks - Nino's version of 'Punked' that is to say, a series of pranks devised and put into practice by Arashi's enfant-terrible. The guys even tried ONCE to get back at Nino, failing miserably. He probably thought 'bloody amateurs...'

A no Arashi = Aiba no Arashi - A legend. Something that I swear they should allow Aiba to do in every Arashi show. You managed to learn things even when you were pissing yourself laughing. Only Aiba's super-high tension can manage to do that that.

Oh how helpful is this!!!

Actually, the last single which was not tied in to any dramas/CM/movies was Kitto Daijobu but Step and Go, with the 107,689 copies SaG sold in its first day, has beat Oricon's record of sales on the day of release!!

Also, if you check Oricon's ranking today, you'll see that the sales have increased a bit from yesterday's figure (1st day:107,689; 2nd day:39,384; 3rd day: 14,042; 4th day: 8,142; 5th day: 8,636) and that, in total, they've sold 177,893 copies of SaG in just five days.

Kyaaah! I keep getting prouder as an Arashi fan!

Lots of thanks for these, Sanae san!

Maybe most of you know but, since there are a lot of new fans of Arashi around, I thought I'd explain what the whole C/D/G no Arashi was about, explaining that the letters stood for:

C no Arashi = Claim no Arashi - They helped several companies and/or governmental bodies which had to claim things from people. The show itself was a bit hard to watch sometimes, especially when the boys got bullied by the people they went to see. The meaning of the C changed to Contest no Arashi when D no Arashi started airing, here they held contests between several people who claimed to be the number ones of something in Japan. The guys then decided who won.

D no Arashi = Document no Arashi - Here they went and put into practice the different ideas that, standing at a ranking on their website, they got voted by the audience. Memorable episodes were the mole hunting and, of course, the numerous corners that this show spawned.

G no Arashi = Generosity no Arashi (the members explained in the first episode that the G stood for positive things that started with G, like grandness or generosity because the point of the show was to extend Arashi's generosity to a member of the audience who had submitted their request for attention)

Corners:

M no Arashi = Mendokusai no Arashi - Mendokusai meaning 'bothersome' for Jun was forced to do bothersome things for others with the intention of making him lose his cool.

O no Arashi = Ohno no Arashi - Ohno was given more or less artistic assignments in this corner, with hilarious consequences.

T no Arashi = Toukou no Arashi - Toukou meaning 'submissions' that were sent by the audience to Sho who proceeded to explain them to the guys trying, and often failing, to make them sound interesting. The guys trying hard not to laugh and to pretend they were bored was the most hilarious bit of the whole corner.

Ni no Arashi = Self-explanatory, methinks - Nino's version of 'Punked' that is to say, a series of pranks devised and put into practice by Arashi's enfant-terrible. The guys even tried ONCE to get back at Nino, failing miserably. He probably thought 'bloody amateurs...'

A no Arashi = Aiba no Arashi - A legend. Something that I swear they should allow Aiba to do in every Arashi show. You managed to learn things even when you were pissing yourself laughing. Only Aiba's super-high tension can manage to do that that.

Saigo, Purity, I'm glad all that typing helped someone!   :huggy: And yes Saigo, I too keep getting prouder of them and hope that they'll remain the same regardless of how high up they climb in the ladder of success.

Another did you know from yours truly:

Did you know that Aiba, who now is described by Jun as 'someone who brightens up the place' was a serious and sometimes taciturn kid who, according to Takki, seemed as though as he would withdraw even more if one got mad at him...he sure has change a lot since then, hasn't he?

Yeah but I remember someone (maybe it was you, Sanae-chan ^^) saying that thanks to Arashi's debut, Aiba has been able to open up and show his true self... Well, actually I think that's true for all of them...

Purity, like I said a while back, I think that for Aiba-chan joining Arashi was the trigger that made it possible for the real Aiba to come out. I also think, like Sloth-chan said, that this is more or less true for the five of them: since they all look out for each other, they probably feel safe enough to be themselves without being afraid.

Arashi is like a really open family where they all can be themselves for they love each other to the extreme of liking even what the members, at an individual level, don't like of themselves. That's the kind of super-relaxed atmosphere I can read from them...

Hisashiburi minna-san....

Gah, life has plotted and succeeded in distracting me from my goal of shirtless paradise.  But I've conquered it (for now) and I'm back. (^_^)

So... in keeping with the topic:

Did you know that for the upcoming 5 dome tour, there's supposed to be a new stage surprise for the fans.  It seems that each member submitted an idea and voted.  It's Sho's idea that was eventually chosen. (^_^)

Also, according to MatsuJun on Shounen Club Premium, the boys didn't really start melding until 3 years after their debut.  MatsuJun feels that they really finally settled in together about 1-2 years ago.  And Aiba was invited to join Arashi a day before they left for Hawaii. O_O

MatsuJun's opinions about the other Arashi members:

Riida - Ohno's role in Arashi is a stabalizing presence.  As a leader he doesn't do anything and at times when it comes to make a decision about something, he'll be doodling and laughing to himself.  But he really does care about and listen to the other members.

Sho - Because he can be silly at times, he doesn't have the "smart image" at all.  He's mellowed out lately.  MatsuJun said that he has a motherly feeling about him.

Aiba - *laugh*  MatsuJun didn't get to talk about Aiba a lot because the host (Taichi Kokubun from Tokio) was making fun of Aiba. XD  But he did get to say that Aiba brightened the place up and he's got good perception.

Nino - I'm not sure what to make of this.  MatsuJun said that Nino has a bit of a poisonous nature. o_o

Actually, this may not be news at all.  Maybe you all have seen this video already. (T_T)  But I'm going to post it anyway so that I'm one more post closer to a topless MatsuJun. *drools*

Yay, thanks for all your info.  I always wondered what all the <letter> no Arashi meant.

You're more than welcome. That's something I did for myself a while ago just to keep in mind what each letter stood for. Now though Jun is confusing us even more because in his radio show he's reviving those names with C no Arashi meaning 'Challenge' and B no Arashi, meaning 'Believe' also in his latest one, he had an A no Arashi which had nothing to do with Aiba-chan...it's more like 'Acident', 'Activity', 'Advice'...and such. Essentially, he's asking his listeners to send him emails about something that they've been doing or that has happened to them or if they want to offer adive about something...

Speaking of Jun, here's the hardsubs for his Shounen Club Interview: http://nyanchan.livejournal.com/34567.html

Please never forget to thank the fansubbers for their hard work!  ok

No, no, the concert is still being organised by the concert master himself (Jun), Sho 'only' came up with the tour's name 'Dream a Live' which was chosen among the ideas the five of them put forward. But you're right, if Sho was actually in charge of the concert's stunts, we'd see all five of them sitting on a comfy couch... (just kidding, BTW)

Post by: Sanae on March 03, 2008, 11:48:43 AM
No probs. I still love Sho's idea for the name of the tour. It can be read in so many different ways:

Dream A Live (as in, a 'live' meaning a concert: a dream of a concert)

or

Dream, Alive: (as in the dream is still very much alive)

Regardless of its interpretations, I think that this time, in the five dome tour concerts, we're definitely going to see the best out of them.

@ Kamu-chan: That much is for sure. Arashi make an iglu look hot!

Maybe that's why he can scold him so easily. Hehe.


So Nino joined the Jimusho two days after his birthday eh? How interesting.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on March 04, 2008, 02:19:24 AM
Yep. It's also interesting to see that Jun was the youngest when they all joined, he was three months short of being 13. Nino was second youngest at 13 and two days, Aiba still had four months left to his 14th birthday while Sho was two months short of being 14. The oldest one was Ohno who would turn 14 just a month after joining.

@ mimi_aibajun: welcome to the forums! And whereas all five of them are more or less equally close, it's always been said that Jun has a very good friendship with Aiba. To the point that Jun, who is used to driving a car with the steering wheel on the left, scratched Aiba's right-hand wheeled car while Arashi (minus Sho who was working) were driving to Hakone for a day-trip and Aiba, despite getting understandably upset, let Jun get away with just an apology. However, Jun himself said in his latest Shounen Club interview that Aiba and Nino do hang out quite a lot...


Title: Re: Did you know... ?

Maybe this is because Jun-kun doesn't have much free time anymore... so lonely Aiba needs to look to Nino for comfort?

The story of Utada Hikaru continues: So after that, she posted a photo of Sho's uchiwa on her official blog and then someone reminded her that she isn't supposed to post pictures of Johnny's online. So she did this: she took a cardboard and drew a picture of her hand holding Sho's uchiwa and then pasted it on her computer screen (using scotchtape, where the original picture was). She then took a picture of this and replaced it with the original picture.  lol She's cute, ain't she?

hehe this is funny !! i LOVE utada ,,  really ,, she comes in second place after our lovely boys .. so she is Sho  fan ne??

and yes that is right Sanae-chan .. japanese artists freely express their admire to other Japanese artists which is really cool and rare :) i remember once utada meet the boys during their   MS Happiness peformance  and Jun said that he loves her song that he used it as his cell phone ring tone,, is not that cool!!

No, because Hikaru-chan looked at Jun to see if he was going to do it and Jun stared at her with that piercing gaze of his and made her freeze in a way that made her feel 'like she was a schoolgirl again'...like I said, so silly of her playing games with DoS-sama, ne minna?

Do (ど); is a Japanese prefix that means 'very' or 'extremely'.

S; stands for Sadist, meaning someone who enjoys causing pain or seeing someone suffer.

So, DoS means 'Extremely Sadist' and you'll see it written like this 'ドS' as one of the many nicknames Arashi have given to their beloved Jun, mainly due to the fact that he does have a bit of a dark side that seems to like causing pain to others especially if he's pissed off or is provoked. Since getting him mad seems to be pretty easy, the members always do their best to keep him happy so that he is his usual sweet self.

is it true that arashi has any conflicts with other JE group?
I heard arashi doubted (jokingly) their friendship with kanjani but we all know it's not true that they are not friends. aside from that are there any rumors?

As far as we know, Arashi's in good terms with every JE group, including Kanjani Eito. They're always joking about how they're not friends with the members of Kanjani Eito but despite the fact that, technically speaking, Kanjani Eito are Arashi's kohais, Arashi seem to treat them as equals because they're all more or less the same age.

This is another thing I like about JE: everyone, even though they're competitors, seem to have a pretty good relationship with one another, to the point of seeing each other outside of work. Arashi members are not an exception, if anything, they're probably among the most respected Johnny's, both as kohais and as sempais.

Wa~i!  Thank you for the explanation Sanae-chan.  I kept think it was an acronym for something (I knew the S = Sadist) but for the life of me I couldn't figure out what the "d" or the "o" were short for.  Now it all makes sense. (^_^)

The first time Jun was involved in the organisation of a concert was the 1998 Johnny's Jr Winter Concert when he was only 15. Via Tackey, who was in charge of the Juniors, Jun offered the staff some very cool ideas, impressing them so much that, ever since, they started to see him as their reference point in terms of concert-planning.

It seems Nino was learning it and Tackey saw him carrying around a guitar and he wanted to do an acoustic performance with one of his kouhai's and asked Nino to perform with him.  Of course, Nino said yes. (^_^)

And did you know that Ohno is Tackey's senpai? o.O  I didn't.

Ohno is the other 4 Arashi members' sempai when they haven't formed Arashi yet. ^^
And all juniors that debuted after Arashi are Ohno's kouhai-s. ^^


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on March 26, 2008, 11:19:01 PM
Yep, Ohno is contemporary of V6 in terms of entering JE so he was a senpai of most of the Juniors from the Golden Era. Of course, this all changed when Sho, Aiba, Nino and Jun debuted because, even though all four of them entered JE after Takki did, since they were debuted, they automatically became Takki's senpais...

It's a rather weird system, isn't it?

You know, I was confused because Tackey talks about the rest of Arashi as kouhais but Ohno he refers to specifically as his senpai.

Ametan, it gets even more complicated for Jun and Takki: as junior, Jun saw Takki as his senpai, after his debut with Arashi, Jun became Takki's senpai...when they formed No Borders in summer 2006, since the two of them are part of it, they're neither kohai nor senpai to one another because in No Borders they bypass that system entirely.

There's only 6 members of No Borders, right?  IIRC, Yamapi's part of the group too.  And Jin?

I think part of it has a nice aspect, though.  Like senpais from the same agency are supposed to look after their kouhais, ne?  But I guess it can be limiting as well... like being intimidated to even approach a senpai.  Yappari, I still don't understand the intricate relationship of senpai & kouhai. XD

Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on March 27, 2008, 01:39:59 AM
A quick reminder about NO BORDER:

Quote
In June 2006, a few Johnnys created an unofficial group within Johnny's Entertainment called "No Border", with: Matsumoto Jun of Arashi, Yamashita Tomohisa of NEWS, Murakami Shingo of Kanjani8, Satou Atsuhiro, Ikuta Toma of Johnny's Junior's, Domoto Koichi of Kinki Kids, Yamaguchi Tatsuya of TOKIO and Takizawa Hideaki of Tackey & Tsubasa. The group was formed when the 8 members met up for dinner and Ikuta Toma chose the name "No Border". They are known to interact freely, bypassing the sempai-kouhai relationships formed by JE. There is a 7 part round-robin on their jwebs about the formation of the group. Each member has a specific color - White, Black, Red, Pink, Purple, Gold, Blue, Grey. However, who holds which color is still unknown.

@ Ametan - the whole sempai-kouhai relationships are easy enough to understand for they mirror the system that is the base of the whole Japanese society. What must be difficult is for someone like Takki to see that four of his kouhais suddenly becoming his sempais or for someone like Ikuta Toma, who technically speaking is a kouhai to even Hey Say Jump! members...now, that must be very confusing and frustrating...

wow...such a complicated system of senpai-kouhai O_o. I didn't know Arashi is regarded as senpai to Tackey.That's interesting.  I thought they (besides Ohno) were his kouhai all way long. And I was kinda shocked when Tackey said Ohno was his senpai in SCP, it just struck my head, reminding me that Ohno is.. hmm.. that old =P? Anyway thank u for explaining all these.

Don't know if this has been said already but Nino once mentioned in the One cuts that Ohno thought of and wanted to work at Lawsons (a convenience store in Jp) in 1999. Lol Imagine seeing our Riida in a convenience store as a cashier or something. Reminds me of the MC in AAA


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on April 03, 2008, 01:16:24 AM
He mentioned that in his SC interview. Apparently, he applied for the job just while he was thinking of quitting JE and we were all very lucky because they didn't reply back to him on time to stop him from debuting with Arashi.

I have many times thought of what a disaster that would have been... *refuses to think of Arashi without their beloved Riida-sama* >.<


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: akai-chan on April 03, 2008, 01:26:25 AM
Well, even if they had replied back to him, I don't think Johnny would've let Ohno go. His dancing and singing skills were already very good at that point, I think, so it would've been a complete waste to let him leave. Somehow, I think Johnny would've stalled his resignation until Arashi's debut since Ohno isn't really the insistent type and would probably just go with whatever.

And I was also shocked when I found out Ohno was Takki's senpai before Arashi debuted, mostly because Ohno looks so young that to think he was above Takki was a bit weird.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: salwa on April 03, 2008, 09:15:05 AM
i actually wondered why ohno would agree to help with the recording of arashi songs.. it doesnt look like ohno for him to just agree to help with the recording, and then agreed to go to hawaii..i mean, he rejected V6, why arashi?

i guess it's fated ne..  :victory:


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: akai-chan on April 03, 2008, 11:10:50 AM
From my understanding of it, Ohno both agreed to helping out with the recording and going to Hawaii because he wasn't told it was his debut and he thought the Hawaii thing was just a vacation. XD And then, after he found out about the debut, he did it because he thought it would be his last shot at Johnny's.

But what really touches me about Arashi is that both Nino and Ohno, the 2 who most wanted to quit right before Arashi debuted, stayed after Arashi's debuted because they truly enjoyed being around the others. Both their sections in the Arashigoto photobook talk about how happy they were to be around the other members and how comfortable it was when the 5 of them together right from the start, which speaks volumes considering they didn't know each other very well and according to Nino, he wasn't exactly a social person when he was younger, and Ohno probably would've had problems making friends since he was in Kyoto and didn't know any one. I shudder to think what would've happened had the 5 members of Arashi been anyone other than the 5 members of Arashi we have today.

Post by: Sanae on April 04, 2008, 03:36:08 AM
akai-chan: yes, Ohno was in the Kansai division of Johnnys for most of the time after he joined JE but, it's not true the other four hardly knew each other. Nino, Aiba and Jun were together as M.A.I.N (with Ikuta Toma) for a long time before they debuted together and were used to working together: Jun and Aiba starred in a movie and a drama together before their debut. Also, as M.A.I.N. they worked in Stand by Me a stage play in 1997. Not to mention that Sho, Nino and Jun were set as a provisional unit a few months before Arashi debuted so that they could do all their lessons together.

The only one who was a bit of an outsider was Ohno because he was older and part of a different unit but, even so, they did see him from time to time in the shows the Juniors put together, like Music Jump or Ai Love Juniors, for instance.

Ohno only accepted to debut with Arashi, as he said himself, because he didn't have anything better to do and he didn't want his parents to worry about him being unemployed. That's the only reason why he decided to stay with Arashi. Nino and Sho, in the other hand, at the end just went with the flow and decided to debut and see what happened.

I've always found it funny that the only one who seemed to want to debut was Jun. Aiba himself probably wanted to debut too but since he was told he was debuting just hours before the press conference, he wasn't even given the chance to consider it...

I'm really glad Oh-chan found his place in Arashi and in the other members' heart even though he were in Kyoto during 2 years before the group debuted. He said it was hard for him when he was there and he often cried... I think every member found a family when they debuted, that's why Arashi's great. <3

Yes well...poor Ohno had a very hard time in Kyoto because he was homesick most of the time and it certainly didn't help that quite a few of their performances on stage were done with less than fifty people as audience. He even said that once, the theater was almost empty and he seriously considered going back to Tokyo.

And yes, Arashi really is a home for all five of them. The one they can all go back to whenever they finish with their individual jobs. ^_^

Yeah. I just watched SCP and was pretty shocked when Ohno said there were no people watching the Kyo to Kyo (butai,is it?). And when he said he and his friend used to cry because of the hard times they had. It's great that he had found his 2nd family after coming back from Kyoto and I'm so glad that it's Arashi! I can't imagine how Arashi would do without Riidaa. Incomplete! I love every itsy bits of them  :saycheese:

[my oppinion: its a wierd regulation, but i think its good for me coz i cannot speak or read japanesse...hehehehe  :heehee:

eh :duh: didn't understand... :sob: so if you are japanese and you ran into any Johnny Junior they will ignore them???? :?: :?:
i guess that's good for me since i'm not japanse or speak japanese very well.... but i guess that's bad for me cuz i can't comunicate with them.



guys i have a question..... IS IT TRUE THAT ONE OF THE JOHNNY JUNIORS CANNOT HAVE GIRLFRIENDS???and that aiba was almost "fired" because he had one and she posted some pictures of them on the internet????
is just that my friend was reading Aiba's thread in Jdorama... and she commented that to me.... :diao:  is it true??????

IS IT TRUE???? :?: :?:

well according to my sister who spent two years in Japan as an English tutor these are the way how those J-pop artists live:

1. most of those showbiz/artist/music companies are very strict with regards to the personal info of the artists
2. publicly (yes) they are owned, meaning: fans are quite selfish. most fans doesn't like their beloved artist having somebody special. if that happens they turn away from that artist and wham! the artist would lose its shine, so the bottom line is those artists (including the ones from Arashi are allowed to have GFs/BFs but they must be discreet about it)

It's an derivative from their culture. So many Japanese traditions and rules that might not make sense at times but attracts the other nationalities.
I guess everybody knows how the "image" of a person stands as a basis for success in Japan. Lose face as they say and kiss your career goodbye. It's no wonder that they keep their lifestyles private.

as of with the discussion of arashi..
is it true that arashi has any conflicts with other JE group?
I heard arashi doubted (jokingly) their friendship with kanjani but we all know it's not true that they are not friends. aside from that are there any rumors?

As far as we know, Arashi's in good terms with every JE group, including Kanjani Eito. They're always joking about how they're not friends with the members of Kanjani Eito but despite the fact that, technically speaking, Kanjani Eito are Arashi's kohais, Arashi seem to treat them as equals because they're all more or less the same age.

This is another thing I like about JE: everyone, even though they're competitors, seem to have a pretty good relationship with one another, to the point of seeing each other outside of work. Arashi members are not an exception, if anything, they're probably among the most respected Johnny's, both as kohais and as sempais.


Now I know this was alittle while back but I got the feeling that arashi just said they weren't friends with Kanjani8 because kanjani8 is a little on the ummmm....wierder side....^_^. Kinda like when Kanjani8 was on utaban and nakai san was all like -_- towards them.... I think its the same feeling arashi has toward them to.

Ah...this comes from their appearance in Hey x 3 in 2005. They were joking. Seriously. Kanjani Eito is probably the best liked group among the other groups, having a direct link with NEWS (Ryo Nishikido commutes between the two groups constantly). Kanjani Eito also took part in the Dream Boy project with KAT-TUN and is in excellent terms with them (even if Ryo cordially calls Ueda his 'best enemy') and, maybe you don't know this but Kanjani Eito, unlike NEWS and KAT-TUN, aren't considered as a kohai group by the members of Arashi, even more so because half of Kanjani Eito are actually the same age or older than the members of Arashi. There have been countless interactions between the two groups (Aiba and Yokoyama - Yokoyama even has a special nickname for Aiba; Sho with Murakami - who is also in No Border with Jun; and everyone knows that Jun's favourite kohai is none other than Ryo-chan...)

Also, Nakai LOVES it when Kanjani Eito are in Utaban: there isn't any noisier and funnier guests than these seven madmen (eight, if we count Hiroki Uchi, who, I hope, will be allowed to re-join the group soon!)

Yea I have to agree that Kanjani8 is really liked (who wouldn't like them they are so funny, even when they get reall loud =D). I knew that they were friends with arashi (especially aiba and yokoyama) but I didn't know they helped with Dream Boy project with Kat-tun. Does Nino or Ohno "hang out" (doesnt know another way to reword that) with any of the Kanjani8 memebers like Aiba, Sho, and Jun does?????

Post by: akai-chan on April 15, 2008, 07:40:55 AM
Does Ohno even hang out with anyone other than Arashi members? XD I don't remember ever hearing about it.

But I believe Nino has hung out with Yoko before, because they did Haikei, Chichiuesama before.


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on April 15, 2008, 07:42:44 AM
Nino was in a drama with Yokoyama but, as far as I know, the only JE he usually goes out with outside Arashi is Taichi Kokubun. Ohno's closest friend outside Arashi is Machida Shingo whom he spent almost three years in Kyoto as part of the KYO TO KYO stage group. I don't think Ohno hangs out with other JEs as much as Sho and Jun do and you probably know that Nino makes it a point NOT to go out with any of his kohais so that he doesn't have to treat them!! ^_^


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Ninomiya love on April 15, 2008, 07:55:55 AM
What drama was it????? I've watched alot of Ninos dramas but I just recenly started listening to Kanjani8 so I dont remember yokoyama at all in the dramas. I thought that was so funny where nino doesnt go out with his kohais so he wouldn't have to pay =D .So ohno does hang out with someone other than arashi like akai-chan I didnt know if he did or not. thank you for the info

A quick reminder about NO BORDER:

Quote
In June 2006, a few Johnnys created an unofficial group within Johnny's Entertainment called "No Border", with: Matsumoto Jun of Arashi, Yamashita Tomohisa of NEWS, Murakami Shingo of Kanjani8, Satou Atsuhiro, Ikuta Toma of Johnny's Junior's, Domoto Koichi of Kinki Kids, Yamaguchi Tatsuya of TOKIO and Takizawa Hideaki of Tackey & Tsubasa. The group was formed when the 8 members met up for dinner and Ikuta Toma chose the name "No Border". They are known to interact freely, bypassing the sempai-kouhai relationships formed by JE. There is a 7 part round-robin on their jwebs about the formation of the group. Each member has a specific color - White, Black, Red, Pink, Purple, Gold, Blue, Grey. However, who holds which color is still unknown.

@ Ametan - the whole sempai-kouhai relationships are easy enough to understand for they mirror the system that is the base of the whole Japanese society. What must be difficult is for someone like Takki to see that four of his kouhais suddenly becoming his sempais or for someone like Ikuta Toma, who technically speaking is a kouhai to even Hey Say Jump! members...now, that must be very confusing and frustrating...
Below are my comments on Senpai-Kouhai relationship..... pls correct me if i'm wrong and dun ban me please......

It's correct that Ohno is Takki's senpai coz most senpai-kouhai relationship is based on the year they joined.To think in another way the terms of senpai-kouhai between the rest 3 member and Takki is the year they debut.It means Arashi is T&T's senpai

Abt Toma and HSJ, the relationship is a bit confusing coz technically Toma is their senpai but  actual situation I also dun know how to explain.......


Title: Re: Did you know... ?
Post by: Sanae on May 20, 2008, 12:16:07 AM
In JE, the relationshi dynamics work in two different ways:

a) While they are still Juniors, i.e. they haven't debuted, the Johnnys regard each other as sempai or kohai depending on the time they have been in the company.

b) When they stop being Juniors, i.e. whenever the Johnnys have released an officially recognised CD, they automatically become sempai to all the Juniors while they remain kohai to the other Johnnys who debuted before they did.

Seeing this, it is true that Ohno was Takki's sempai while they were both Juniors because Ohno joined the company in 1994 while Takki did the same in 1995.

Using the same example, Aiba was Takki's kohai while they were Juniors because Aiba joined JE in 1996. But, since Aiba debuted before Takki did, Aiba automatically became Takki's sempai even if Aiba has never treated Takki as his kohai.

Aiba and Jun, for instance, is a relationship that never changed. Jun joined JE a few months before Aiba did and since they debuted at the same time, Aiba still considers Jun his sempai, though the fact that they are in the same group tends to void these kind of things...

Regarding Toma, this is a huge mess because, technically speaking he is still a Junior and, therefore, even Morimoto from HSJ can, theoretically speaking, refer to Toma as his kohai! In this case, like in most 'conflicting' cases, Morimoto knows better than to think this way and regards Toma with the same amount of respect as he'd have for any of the other debuted Johnnys since, they all know, Toma's been around for long enough to be sempai to NEWS, KAT-TUN, Kanjani Eito and HSJ's even if, technically speaking, he's not...but fear not, no one from those groups is stupid enough to treat Toma as a kohai...he's way too popular and way too nice so everyone is just super-friendly to him. In fact, I don't think there's a Johhny who is more popular among the other Johnnys than Toma...he seems to be friends with EVERYONE!

Yet another show of how strange the system is but hey, welcome to Johnny's World, ne? LOL.

^ Really? Seems hard to confirm, ne?

Anyways, it kind of sucks for Toma in a way. Don't Johnnys usually debut at a pretty early age? Like 20 or below? Maybe he will stick to acting jobs? (I LOVE his dramas  :yahoo:)

Post by: Sanae on May 20, 2008, 04:05:07 AM
wensan, it probably is impossible for us to verify it firsthand but, we know that Toma is in good relations with at least two thirds of Shonentai (huge sempais of his), he's also in excellent terms with Aiba, Nino and Jun and is best friends with Yamapi as well as being  good friends with a number of other Johnnys. I still have to read anywhere reporting him not liking someone or someone not liking him. But yes, it's a real pity he hasn't debuted yet, maybe with his new drama with Ohno he'll get the chance he deserves!

Now, while Purity is busy eating Jun (LOL), I'll answer VeroRiida's question:

In this forum we've always tried to avoid talking about any sort of scandal or controversy involving the members. Especially when said scandal involves a female. Besides that, the incident you're referring to happened AGES ago, Aiba-chan has hopefully forgotten about it and so should we, don't you think?

yea  i saw that pic demo it never affected my and i quickly forget it  .It is normal to find scandals and rumors  all around  the boys.This is the price of fame ne .However, as adult people and devoted fans we should not believe what ever people say . * is still busy eating Jun *lol

*gently pulls Matsumoto san away from Puffy chan's mouth* now now Puffy chan, you must behave yourself we all know that if you eat Matsumoto san it will be the end, you'll never see him again, and your gentle gastric juice would melt him. *hands puffy chan a bar of hershey's* :saycheese:

those scandals, must be forgotten *nods toward Puffy chan* bacause the arashi men are popular, fans like us must not easily believe what those people with "bad" intetions do or say. but, then being curious and asking if that and these/some issues are real, is another thing than actually believing them and losing faith to our boys

Also, can we not bring up the subject of those rumors and scandals that came about in the past, please? The past is the past. Live the present. We as fans are here to support Arashi, not gossip about them with those nasty rumors/scandals that tabloids (and possible other fans) seem to make up (whether if they were true or not, it's none of our business in the first place).  :aggressive:

Sorry about that notice. Sadly though, I don't have anything to bring up since I'm still falling behind everyone here...  :bye3:

I don't know if someone else ever write about this, because I just watching Step & Go DVD talk recently:
1. After being the host of Johnny Countdown 2007.12.31 : the one thing that Jun done for the first day of 2008 all day long is sleeping. He just waking up for eating, and then sleeping again.

2. For the New Year, he come back home to his parent house, and then back again to his place. But he also visiting Johnny Kitagawa, and get an otoshidama from him. ^_^

3. Oh-chan got visitor; four children which is his relatives child, where he give otoshidama 10,000 yen per children [which made him yelled by another Arashi member, since he just treat ramen for all of them. But Oh-chan defend himself by saying that if he treat them, and all of their manager; he will spend 10,000 Yen too for the ramen for them all. [Oh, Oh-chan...]

2. And surprisingly, Sakuraiba have never gone out for a drink with just the two of them before too. HnA SP "Arashi hosts Arashi".
