そうか!!! That finally solves the mystery of that gesture! Was wondering if it had some significance since they were ALL doing it in the Hawaii Blast photoshoot.

ありがとうね〜

Everytime a pessimistic voice inside of me asks me to be a pragmatist, to be wary that things that are too good to be true usually turn out to be the case, it’s only increasingly too easy to shut it up: these are the reasons why.7 years into the fandom, I have come to the conclusion that these five have let their actions speak for themselves. There are those who may say it’s their “professionalism” in “getting the job done”, I say there’s only so much being responsible for a job gets you. They could always choose to limit themselves, and they have not.Thank you, Arashi. Thank you Arashi fandom. For reinforcing to me that in our world, there are still places and people and occasions where it really is about the simple things.

2014.09.15 AD - Happy Arashi Day!

Good morning. This is Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi.
Here’s the thought of the day; come on!

"There is no value in success based on results alone.
It is the process created together with your friends that is valuable.”

[BGM ‘A.RA.SHI’]

Hmm, definitely. That’s it, right?
This is a quote by Japanese…

Riida~~ yoroshiku ne~ zutto.

Happy 15th Anniversary to the best group in the world! Wow! 15 years! Not many idols could do that. Thank you for hanging on for all these years. I know it was tough on all of you but instead of giving up, you made everything seems so fun. Seeing you working hard up until now, it made me challenged too. Because I met you, I have the passion to strive on in life. You may not know this but I am who I am right now because of you. Because I wanted to see you someday. I couldn’t thank you enough for all you have done to me but still, thank you for everything. Being an Arashi-fan is and will always be my best decision in life. I will always support you. Congatulations and keep the rainbow shining! :D #5x15

Fav sakumoto moments of Arashi ni Shiyagare 2014.09.13 Part 3

Sakumoto #3: at the end of the shooting at J’s makeshift ramen stall

Jun: The ‘M’ in ‘MJ’ is because it is ‘M’ for ‘men’ (noodles in Japanese)

Sho: (bugged-eyed) Eh~ That can’t be true?!?!

image

Jun: So until the next time, please do look forward to it.

Nino: So again, please do favour us in future.

Jun: So, see you next time.  Bye bye.

image

Sho: [as camera zooms in on J’s smug mug] How is this an (appropriate) ending?

Ahh~ this is me majorly distracted by sakumoto taking a break from doing work on Sunday.

Sakumoto #2: after Masaki successfully procures the tonkutsu soup without ordering the ramen meal

Sho: [as Arashi-san and Mary J all stand up] So we’re going off now just like that?

Jun: Yes~

image

Sho: Eh? We’re seriously not eating anything?

Jun: Yes.

 Sho: Wow.  It’s an amazing plan you have here! (As everyone laughs) And I was thinking we were going to eat. [NB: not 100% percent sure about the last part]
