You can probably tell from my posts that I am one HUGE Arashi fan. Okay, okay…I am a bit obsessed now-in-days, but who wouldn’t be with the fabulous five. I had located something quite interesting at poccomoco.vox.com; it has a nice compilation of Arashic symptoms ^^. Quite enjoyable and humorous to read, and yet so accurate :P. Hehe…I’m going to list the ones that pertain to me below:

  1. You were baited by Jun-kun.
  2. The best dancer in Johnny’s is Ohno, period.
  3. You’re forever daydreaming and imagining…about Arashi and you.
  4. Only true idols get extremely popular after putting stockings over their head, wearing nipples shirts and daisy dukes.
  5. You’re envious of the Arashi Fan Club members.

    1. Hiya, Yurie-chan! Nice to meet a fellow Arashi fan, I would love to be your friend! Same here, I’m the one among my family and friends who truly adore the sparkling five. I’ve tried to share our boys with them, but they don’t understand why Arashi is loved so much. That’s why I started this blog, to flair and to spread Arashi rabu rabu! Being able to attend an Arashi concert is one of my dream too!! It is always a delight to find someone who I can share this obsession with.

      Hope to see you around, would love to chat more!

    2. yo!its me again

    3. Hey Yurie-chan, it’s awesome to hear from you again! I currently do not have a Facebook account, but will note to join the Arashi community when I open one. I do occasionally go to Crunchroll, I will definitely look for you there. XD

  3. hye there,
    most of what you say is true.most of them.i admit now. thank you so much cz sharing this article.have a nice day =)
    > did you watch my girl? aiba kawaii =)

    1. Hiya, nice to meet you and hope we can be friends!

      I’m happy that there’s another fellow Arashian to share my obsession with. There are still a few more that I would like to add to the list, just need to find some time to do it.

      I haven’t gotten a chance to watch My Girl yet, but it is on my ones-to-see list. However, I have seen the preview, it’s going to be a sweet and heartwarming drama. Aiba looks kakkoii and the little girl is so kawaii! XD

    1. Same here, I love Arashi as a whole, but Jun-kun still holds special place in my heart (was baited into fandom by him)! XD I’ve learn to respect him on some many different levels. I admire his caring, hardworking and ever-learning attitude.

  4. hhahah
    oh no i just started 2 months and i have half of the symptoms…
    mainly i am starting japanese classes just to try to understand the CXDXG DVD i bought from HMV japan online!! First and last thing i hear and watch is their DVD concerts which i bought online as well.. i am constantly hunting all sites for anything relating to Arashi!! I starting with Jun but i am now crazy over Ohno.. Arashi is extrememly addicting… when ppl ask about my love life i tell them i have 5 to love ! hehehe

    1. Hey there Jolene! Haha…trust me, Arashi is more infectious than you think, there is no way of turning back now!

      Five to love…I bet you’re envy by all. I was the same way when my journey first started, it was Arashi 24/7 hehe. Those adorable dorks are truly amazing ne, the love for them continues to grow as times passes by.

      Riida is certainly one astonishing individual, quite talented in art, dance and acting. What is there not to love about him?! Though, I admire Oh-chan to bits, Jun-kun still remains to be my ichiban. Somehow, I find his charisma is a tad more attractive, not that Ohno’s isn’t, I’m just being super MatsuJun bias here.

      Thank you for stopping by and hope to see ya around!

  5. hi,, fiona..

    1. Heya Clara and welcome to the Arashi fandom! You too, I guess most of us were Jun-baited! LOL I am the same on symptom #66!! Though, his performance in Gokusen was wonderful, it wasn’t until Bambino and We can make it! that he had lurked me into his and Arashi’s world. I absolutely love those dorky five, they can brighten anyone on the most gloomiest day! They are a godsend ne.
