This was a complete blindside, I was pretty surprise by this unexpected announcement. However, I wasn’t in denial nor shock as the SMAP break-up, which even the slightest idea would have been rejected. I vented for days to my friends who thought I was crazy. LOL
I was pretty calm for this. Now, all I have for my beloved Arashi is understanding and support. ❤ ❤ They deserve to take a break as they have been working since their teens. Their tight-knit-ness (is that even a word?) is evident during their explanation on how thorough their discussions were for this conclusion. I am glad that it was collaborative and Arashi is all for one and one for all. They can come back whenever they are ready (hopefully get married and with have families), I will wait for them forever. I am just very happy to have been a part of this incredible Arashian family.
Did minna-san see their new Kirin Mets commercial!? Truly cool and amazing, ne! I absolutely love the futuristic aspect and their kakkoii costumes. Hopefully one of them will star in such a movie, I would definitely be the first to see it.
For the newest their CMs, go to the Kirin site here. Get it a few minutes to load, in Japanese. Here is the 60 seconds version that was kindly shared by smsjk:
Day Twenty-Eight – Which Arashi member would you want to be your brother?
Definitely Aiba, I know that he will make each of my days cheerful with his caring, energetic, affectionate, and baka personality. He is also entertaining, polite and easy-going. We would be able go to different places together to share the fun, as well as, cry our eyes out at sad and emotional movies.
