Japonism has shifted an impressive 820,208 copies in its first week of sales alone OMG!!!

This means they're only 179,792 copies away from the historic million! Sasuga Arashi power fufufu~!!!

Which they have not done so since All The Best 1999 - 2009 album released 6 long years ago...

Many congratulations to you Arashi sama!

Debut of Kokoro no Sora on TV! Outfits were what they wore in PV.
Lovely background of autumnal red maple trees on the set. Pretty!
Very good perf and looking forward to con woof!
Yoitoko Maka Fukigi -- Aibachan, Riida and Nino did back flips while SJ were spared.
There were Juniors backdancing - They Budou, MAD, MADE and Jr Boys. I see this as a dry run for new tour yatta!
Lots of complicated moves involving the floor. It's been awhile since we've seen the five boys dancing so aggressively!
PS. Unexpected Ohmiya at MS end was so cute. They must've been exhausted from rehearsals, that both were sitting on steps of MS set before the cameras zoomed in on them haha!

Happy Japonism Day! Receiving the LE album from CD Japan on release day makes me so happy!!! Tight budget, bought one instead of all three...

I feel that the boys are taking a more mature approach to music making with the release of Japonism. Trying more varied styles and fewer of the run of the mill mid-tempo tracks which they are so fond of.

Really enjoyed the MS live telecast from ARASHI BLAST in Miyagi!!! Riida looked really genki and happy, which soothed my worries about him.
The way he stared and smirked at the camera at the end, it's almost like giving the finger to the media -- "TAKE THAT YOU SUCKERS! I'LL NOT GO DOWN WITHOUT A FIGHT!!!"

To the group that has brought me so much rainbow goodness, Happy 16th Anniversary!!
The world would be colorless, lack glitter and devoid of fun and hope, without a doubt!
Thank you once again for just being the five of you! <3See pics here!Collapse )

I love this live! Everyone was so genki and hyper! SM winked and flirted with camera nonstop, Aimiya love, OM/SA combi etc....

Towards the end featuring Yama "Congrats, this is our true love!" with them making the heart sign again so long after Troublemaker!! Oh my heart!!!

The next time we see them on Sep 23! Live from Miyagi con and beamed to MS!!! *jumps in joy*

Yatta! Happy GANTZ Day! It starts screening today and I found 2 articles in the bilingual daily, my paper.

However, they hold conflicting views. =(

I put my rusty translation skills to work, so if you encounter any mistranslation, please leave me a comment as I did them in a hurry!

short review in English


Chinese article (my thoughts: somehow I have a feeling the reviewer was even reluctant to review GANTZ...)
