Face Down is definitely my favorite performance I've ever seen on Music Station up to date, we shall see if it'll be my favorite on Heyx3 come Monday (Truth is still my favorite Heyx3 performance) hearts

I loved how they performed the song in it's entirety and definitely spazzed over their choreograph this time around sparkles





However, their PV this time was such a let down for me. All they did was sit in the chair to act all high and mighty by trying to convey their hotness, but then it gets destroyed when they acted all dorky and photo bombed the video NG

     

     

     

     

As such, I'll pretend that their live performance is the actual PV and loop that on repeat forever, I'm hoping that their performance on Heyx3 is just as awesome as Music Station, if not better arrowup

I finally got around to watching the VS Arashi SP that aired on Thursday, March 29th, 2012 hearts

I definitely love the Macho-kun that they used for the spring special cherryblossom



I also loved the outfit Jun wore of the checkered shirt sparkles



What I loved most of all were the outfits that all the members wore for the Bet de Arashi heart



I couldn't stop laughing when I saw the last bit of Itou-san knocking down Nino's block tower. I don't know if I understood it properly, but after 4 years, Itou-san is leaving !?

It's that time again! It's Mannequin Five Spring SP~!!



All their outfits this time around have flaws in them for me, which is centered around the bottom half of the outfits ^_^;;

I like one because of it's simplicity and elegance, but I do wish it was a little but more colorful. I also like two, but I disapprove of  the rolled up pants and the shoes. Three would have been passable, if he wasn't wearing that PINK outer jacket. Had it been a red jacket, I would have voted for three, hands down. The fourth one immediately evoked a "WTF?!" reaction out of me the moment I laid eyes on it. Five would have also gotten my vote too, if it wasn't for the rolled up pants and the shoes...

So by a process of elimination, I like the first one since there's really nothing at fault with it aside from the lack of color in his outfit (which the fourth one immediately makes up for) exclamation1

In terms of who's wearing what... I have no idea... I've always got them wrong *fails*

I must admit, I didn't like 「ワイルドアットハート」 when I first heard the song, but once I saw the PV and the live, it's earned a place on my playlist melody2

I mean, it's so hard to dislike a song when you're watching this from the PV:



It's such an awesomely fun song to watch them dance and interact with each other to the point where you just can't help grinning alongside with them happily sparkles



I flailed and squeed watching this scene just like the rest of the fandom hearts

To be honest, the FNS performance of 迷宮ラブソング wasn’t as bad as everyone in the fandom is complaining/ranting about ^_^;;

Arashi members didn’t have their ear monitor nor were their microphones working properly and they were still able to give such an awesome performance nevertheless!

Not only that, but I do agree the background music was absurdly loud. So combining that they didn’t have their ear monitors, had malfunctioning microphones and really loud background music, I applaud them for being able to stay together during the performance and giving it their all melody2

Their energy and professionalism shined through and this only made me more proud of them for how they handled the situation as they persevered through this performance sparkles

Plus, despite all the mishaps, they all genuinely laughed it off (especially Sho during the performance) and Jun reassured viewers with his “OK” sign OK



What doesn't kill them will only make them stronger, and I strongly believe they'll be able to handle anything in the future hearts

While every other fangirl who had pre-ordered their Arashi single of 「迷宮ラブソング」had theirs shipped out by November 2nd, 2011 exclamation1

I was anxiously waiting for Play-Asia to send me a notification that my single would be shipped out. However, that was not meant to be. As more days passed and I went to check the status of my order, it was always listed as "In progress" downarrow

After FIVE days of waiting with no notification from them, I contacted them inquiring why it was taking so long for the shipment to be sent since shipment of the pre-orders for the singles would have been sent out no later than November 2nd like many of the other online retailers such as YesAsia and CD Japan pencil

With that, I was promptly sent a reply e-mail from them:



What irritated me most of all was not that they didn't have the LE single any more, as there are only a certain amount allotted to each online retailer, but that they didn't contact me at all to inform me they didn't have any left in stock! It was only after I patiently waited FIVE days and AFTER I sent them an e-mail that they replied back with this blasphemy !!

They then inform me that the RE is still available and will be willing to give me a measly three dollar discount for my inconvenience NG

Thankfully, by a stroke of good fortune, YesAsia still had the LE for sale!! *cries happily* hearts

I will never stray from YesAsia and CD Japan every again since I've never had any problems or difficulties arise with them arrowup

Play-Asia, you have forever lost the trust of this client and will never need your services ever again prohibited

I'm so insanely happy right now! My Panda Party has arrived to take over my room! arrowup

I commissioned [livejournal.com profile] angelieees for some custom Arashi pandas as well as a Sesshoumaru panda hearts



The one on the top left is Sesshoumaru from the anime series InuYasha who is my all time favorite anime character. The one that's not a panda was a gift that [livejournal.com profile] angelieees gave to me who's supposed to be Sho wearing the outfit he wore during the Ashita no Kioku performance at the 5x10 concert. The other ones on the bottom of the picture are the outfits that Arashi wore in Love so Sweet, Oh Yeah!, as well as Kitto Daijoubu in the AAA08 in Tokyo concert sparkles

As aforementioned, Sesshoumaru is my all time favorite anime character. I laughed when I saw that she will no longer be making him (just like the other person that I commissioned a Sesshoumaru plush in my previous entry [HERE]) ^_^;;



I absolutely love and adore the beautiful outfits that they wore in the Arashi Around Asia 2008 in Tokyo concert so much that my favorite one was made into the Arashi pandas wearing them !!

 

For those of you who are interested in getting commissions from her for panda type plushies. She's made several anime and Arashi ones before and the ones that I have are only a few out of many other plushies she's done previously exclamation1

Her Livejournal is: http://angelieees.livejournal.com (HERE)
If you want to see some of her other commissions: http://angelieees.livejournal.com/76367.html (HERE)
She's trying to take over the world with her pandas! Don't believe me?! http://rsmpanda.tumblr.com (HERE)

For those of you who are interested in getting Arashi customed pandas or just customed pandas portraying an anime character, I would definitely recommend her! OK

I'm currently watching Mannequin Five Special Navi on Keyhole with [livejournal.com profile] kaitousessha on TBS hearts

They're currently doing a recap of the M5 SPs that have already been aired previously sparkles

Then I remember that I completely forgot to post who I voted!! OK

 

To be honest, I don't really like any of their outfits this time around, the other three I did have ones that I liked... downarrow

I don't like one because of the pink, I don't like two because it looks really bleak and dreary, three is passable because I like the sweater, four could have been okay IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE HAT!! Then the fifth one is a school blazer which is... ^_^;;

I don't even know which will come in first or in last place, the other M5 SPs were easier to determine ^^;;

In terms of who's wearing what... I have no idea... I've always got them wrong *fails*

 I went to see Perfect Answer with [livejournal.com profile] theproudpenguin  and [livejournal.com profile] deadcamsi today hearts

I baked them both melon bread and they seemed to enjoy it bread

Let me tell those who watched the movie, plan to watch it, or will watch it...

It was not the "Perfect Answer" that I was looking for... But it was amazing nonetheless.

I'm not a Nino fan, but him  in black leather brandishing that long sword... Looking hot as hell...

We met up to watch GANTZ together for the Fantasia film festival to see Nino in all his hotness

I'm happy that we all got along well with each other and had our random moments of weirdness :3

I only found them because I recognized Sandy from her two star tattoos that she got recently ^^;;

There was an awesome relationship, where the two of them would talk in French and I would talk in English XD

We squealed and flailed when we saw the posters for GANTZ, and those two weirdos petted the poster lovingly ^^;;

     

Random Weirdness That We Did Today~ )

The three of us are going back tomorrow to watch Perfect Answer together~!

Today is the death anniversary of the greatest Arashi variety show that ever aired, 嵐の宿題くん.

The show where they played Aiba's death board game and revealed to the fangirls their chikubis and did their best to try to have some sense of dignity at the end of the episode... The show where we all laughed when they ate really spicy or smelly foods...

In honor of it's epicness and awesomeness that showed the true potential of Arashi as sexy dorks. I've decided to release another batch release of shop photos to commemorate the anniversary.

That and because LOOKIE LOOK! I FINALLY HAVE AN ARASHI LIVEJOURNAL LAYOUT!! GO HOVER OVER THE TAGS!!

For those who have twitter, don't forget to put in #shukudaikun to mention awesome moments from AnS!

There are 18 shop photos with the size ~ 5900x4100 (landscape) and 4080x5950 (portrait) [*corner of woe*]

As you are all probably aware of by now, Japan was hit with that huge crazy earthquake followed by a crazier tsunami which engulfed many parts of Japan. To make it worse, there are problems with one of their atomic power plants which has been leaking radioactive substances...

Arashi has been accounted for to be safe, but it does not replace the fact that many have already died due to this catastrophic event and many more are still unaccounted for and are still missing.

There is currently a fundraiser being held over at [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on and for those of you who can offer your services, I implore you to do so and for those of you who cannot, you can always make a donation to them or even directly to Red Cross or any other organization of your choice. The link to the fundraiser is located HERE TO HELP OUT.

Despite it being a very bleak and dim time, I thought it would be best to release the next batch of shop photos to bring a bit of happiness in our sad hour and in Japan's time of need.

There are 22 shop photos with the size ~ 5900x4100 (landscape) and 4080x5950 (portrait) [*corner of woe*]
