I became acquainted with the word, Arashi through Matsumoto Jun when watching Gokusen in 2008. Yes, I was Jun-baited and proud of it! ^.^ At that time, I though he was sugoi due to his multi-talented career and the thought of listening to his band never crossed my mind. To be honest, I had began viewing Jdramas and took everything with a grain of salt at that time. It wasn’t until I heard We can make it! (themesong to Jun-kun’s drama, Bambino) and fell hopeless in love with the energetic and inspirational song! Impressed I was and even more surprised that it was sang by Arashi! Well, the rest is history…this was how my journey into the land of sparkles and rainbows had began.
Arashi are certainly a unique and talented group, not like most bands that I had stumble upon. Arashi consists of 5 members – Ohno Satoshi(leader), Sakurai Sho, Aiba Masaki, Ninomiya Kazunari and Matsumoto Jun – all of which I truly respect and admire. XO
