Jumping on the Sho birthday bandwagon! As this magazine is 10 years old (!), there is inevitable wear and tear. Try to look beyond the imperfections of a "classic" if you will. Hope you'll enjoy chibi chipmunk + young Mabo + brooding Arashi~

In 2001, Sho teamed up with Matsu-nii in drama Heaven Cannot Wait aka Tengoku ni Ichiban Chikai Otoko 2. Dont you just heart cross group projects? XD

(As Juniors, Yama pair were part of this unit on separate occasions <-- Edit: Will do MA later, please check back. However do not ask for other scans, coz this is not a request post.More previews + dl links ^^Collapse )

Posted this on some other comms but in case you missed it~

The latest TV Guide issue 2009.10.30 published the news (and of course Fuji TV as well) that KinKi Kids will be guests next Monday on Bistro SMAP!!! My tension is so high because they will be the FIRST Johnnys on the show!!

In Sep 07, Toma took part in SmaSma's game segment with Shun (you can find online clips by googling) for their Hana Kimi promo so KinKi Kids will truly be the first Bistro Johnnys!!!

Of course my dream would be for Arashi to appear as well but I know that wont happen anytime soon, with SMAP's manager and Johnny's niece Julie not seeing eye to eye haiz...

Cant wait for some epic senpai x kouhai rabu rabu! <333

On the menu:
1) Koichi and Tsuyoshi both requested for fish dishes.
2) Tsuyoshi will reveal why he doesnt eat meat anymore.

Watch the CM ^^;Collapse )

Surprised does not begin to describe how I felt when I spied Arashi on friend's copy of our local entertainent mag i-weekly. Since I am not in Japan, they obviously dont know the JE protocol huh? Johnny-san would have a fit if he were to see his bands being sidelined by K/T bands...

More pics and a simple translation on my LJ.
Please note I have included Arashi / JE bits only.
Do yourself a favor if you'd like to read the complete article.
Buy the mag at a mere fraction of the prices of those Japanese mags we love so much!
