Arashi releases details on new single “BRAVE” and MV collection

Happy August! Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. I am not surprised of the best clips release since its their 20th anniversary, probably gonna add this to my collection.

Arashi isn’t done yet with new music releases. Following their 20th anniversary album last June, Arashi is slated to release their newest single “BRAVE” on September 11. The song is used as image song for NTV’s broadcast of the “Rugby World Cup 2019 Japan Tournament”.

Featuring Sakurai’s rap, this is also the first single from Arashi to be released in a Blu ray disc. The single will only contain one song “BRAVE” and a 54 minute DVD/ Bluray content.

In addition, Arashi will be releasing their music video collection “5 × 20 All the BEST !! CLIPS 1999-2019” on October 16th. This is the second part of their “5×20” series. Similar with the best album, the MV collection will contain 63 MVs from their debut single “A ・ RA ・ SHI” to “Kimi no Uta” released in 2018. The first limited edition will come with a bonus disc containing MVs of album songs and coupling songs.

Arashi going on hiatus after 12/31/2020

I am sure that everyone has seen or heard of Arashi going on hiatus in 2021.

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.

Kimura Takuya and Ninomiya Kazunari to star in new movie!!

Kimura Takuya and Ninomiya Kazunari will be co-starring in a new movie titled “Kensatsugawa no Zainin” (Criminal for the Prosecution). This is the first time an Arashi and former SMAP member will be co-starring and is being tagged as a “Dream Collaboration” between these two top stars.

This suspense film is based on the 2013 novel of by Shizukui Shusuke and will be directed by Harada Masato (Japan’s Longest Day, Kakekomi, Sekigahara).

In the upcoming film, both Kimura and Ninomiya will play Tokyo public prosecutors. Kimura plays the lead as an elite public prosecutor Mogami Takeshi while Ninomiya plays novice prosecutor Okino Keiichiro who looks up to Mogami as a mentor. They both are assigned to a case with the suspect, Matsukura Shigeo, previously involved in a murder case of a middle school girl, which has already passed its statute of limitations. Mogami (Kimura) is bent on proving Matsukura’s guilt as his failure to put him to justice caused the death of his most beloved person. He is also aware of the heavy grief carried by the deceased girl’s family. As Okino (Ninomiya) doubts Mogami’s persistence in setting up the suspect as the culprit, tensions mount between the two as they stand off against each other.

“Kensatsugawa no Zainin” will be filmed from July to August and will be released 2018.

What do you think of this collab? Will we finally see Kimura on an Arashi show in the future? What more can we expect to happen?
