Arashi trying to speak in portuguese with Neymar XD~ While Sho said “Muito prazer!” (Nice to meet you!), Satoshi said “Até logo!” (See you!/ Bye!) to Neymar who had just arrived! LOL - VS Arashi 2015.08.13

When Arashi spins laughter... and actual spins (Arashi ni Shiyagare 04.03.2017)

└ The guests are ice-skaters and have Arashi take on the challenge of giving a ‘winning’ ending pose after taking spins in a chair.

First up…

Exuding stoicness as expected of our youngest.

And he pulls off a cool pose… albeit a little totteringly.

You didn’t only make US see stars then Jun-kun. (^_^)

Our next contestant tries to build up his inner reserves…

And his expression just speaks a thousand million words… (^_^)

Before he absolutely kills me with his ending pose!

And shipper in me tried to be more focused on Sho-kun… I tried really.

And although Masaki’s a literal blur, his hairstyle makes him look so kakkoi~~

And that ending Chinese gongfu-like pose! (^_^)

Then comes our cheater Neener.

… who while looking “nervous”, attempts to bribe / bully / kick the staff into spinning him at less than half the speed of the others. (HAHAHAHAHA~)

Though it hardly yields the desired outcome.

… as he totally feels the dizziness and nausea.

Last but DEFINITELY not the least… our sassy Riida with a helluva lot of SASS with a capital ‘S’!

You just KNOW he’s got something up his sleeve with THAT smirk on his lips…

Sasuga Onee Ohno-san~~

Did you ever really doubt the outcome?

And just a final shot of them all in their spin outfits.

“It not who’s best in Arashi.  It’s best being that these five are as one.” - Ohno Satoshi


└ Riida’s logic: 10-month shoot with no consecutive-day rest days = “I can’t bear it!”

Cute Satoshi ♥ - TOKIO x Arashi Premium Talk 2014.12.28 

The great jealousy saga between...

Jun knows he’s being put in the spotlight as Shitsuren Chocolatier kissing scenes are brought into discussion…

Satomi points out that not only does Jun kiss her, but Kiko-chan too!

Kiko’s reaction… is a picture that speaks a thousand words…

… while Riida questions how close these two are. *silly alien wants to soothe Oji-chan’s ruffled feathers*

Yes yes Jun-kun.  We realize you’re about to hit a shitstorm too.  

… especially when Riida asks about (kissing) rehearsals with his co-stars.  After Jun “helpfully” clarifies that he only had such rehearsals with Kiko-chan, he deems it necessary to…

… pacify our oldest by getting Masaki out of the way first

… and then demonstrating the nature of the rehearsal.  All while our Riida waits with baited breath…

… before his dreams are painfully shattered by unhelpful jealous members.  Ojichan~ your expression~~

… like Neens (and Sho?  I forgot.  Got a little distracted here.  Warui ne~)

The jealousy spats!  The kiss that should have been… What are you guys doing? Hahaha~

VS Arashi 20.08.2015

Only I must protect them... no matter when, even if Arashi doesn't exist anymore... No! If we're all together then Arashi doesn't have an end...

Arashi’s Tears (‘07 Magazine Interview) taken from a blog ~

Ohno Satoshi:

“Honestly, men crying isn’t something really embarrassing. But I would easily cry in a lot of situations, and I wouldn’t want other people to know… There was once I was talking to Nino on the phone, and that kid suddenly said, "Riida, you’ve always been guiding us like this, truly, thank you… no matter what we say every day, in our hearts our riida’s definitely the best! We won’t switch you with anyone! Are you listening? You’re not dozing off are you?” There was something that filled my heart when I heard this…“

"I can’t even reply anything else but "I’m hanging up”. In the end I got lectured by him because of this…But I’m really bad at saying those things… Those kind children who can look at someone like me as a leader, I really truly love them. If I was in another group, I probably won’t be given such attention, therefore I’ve always been thankful… I’m not goodlooking, neither am I special, but because Arashi is very handsome and very special, therefore even I have become someone amazing…
"Maa…I feel very apologetic for someone like me to be leader, but I truly love them, very very much

“These idiots, even if they made a mistake where no one can forgive them, I will never be able to leave them be. Only I must protect them… no matter when, even if Arashi doesn’t exist anymore… No! If we’re all together then Arashi doesn’t have an end…We’ve walked together to the present, it won’t change in the future…When I think about this, tears will fall…
