Here you will find randomness about me, as well as JE translations for whatever strikes my fancy and whatever I find suitable to my current level of Japanese.

Journal Notes:

All translations will be left Public. If you would like to see the updates here, please freel free to Friend! Any RL-related posts will be Friends-locked. If you want to get to know me, drop me a note on this post or start a conversation. I love meeting new people ^__^

Translation Notes:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic is the awesome team I sub for. Please join the community if you're interested in fully-subbed clips and videos.

From time to time I'll do magazine interviews, Shukudai Staff Blogs, or other partial translations here. Since I'm still learning Japanese, though, I don't guarantee perfect accuracy.

General Notes:

1) All translations will be rendered with idiomatic English to the best of my ability.
2) If I have doubts about anything I translate, I will state them.
3) Corrections/Edits/Queries are ALWAYS welcome ^___^

Thanks, and enjoy!~

It's been awhile, but I managed to dig myself out of my work to watch this awesome Making-of.

We all know by now that Arashi is really good at giving pitch-perfect, camera-ready answers, right? Well, this video throws all of that out the window by undermining their conventional answers and prompting to say what they really think.

I mean, the video actually starts out with the following warning:

This Making-Of DVD may contain remarks or actions that seem inappropriate for Arashi. Please treat them as part of the production. Thank you, and enjoy the video.

So obviously, there's PURE GOLD waiting for us in this video.

So, Arashi. How do you REALLY feel?Collapse )

I think this was pretty much a perfect Making-Of video. It was great to watch all the member-love, but more than that, I loved the fact that they weren't giving those perfect, "There's a deeper meaning behind everything" answers. I mean, sometimes it really IS just, "I forgot" (Aiba), or "My eyes were dry" (Sho).

And sometimes, it's "Fudge everything!" (Ohno) XDDDD

Love and ♥♥♥ forever, Arashi.

The quickest and dirtiest concert report you'll see. Heavy on the MC and non-existant on actual songs besides the solos =D

Under here! Beware spoilers!Collapse )

It was a really moving concert and even though I'm not down with their new album yet, I had a lot of fun with the songs I knew =3

I know it's extremely last-minute, but the friend I was planning to go to Kokuritsu with has cancelled on me, so I am left with an extra concert ticket for Aug 22, Sunday.

I really want the ticket to go to an Arashi fan who either didn't hit/couldn't join the FC in time/otherwise cannot go, so I'm offering this ticket for sale!

- Seats aren't very good (though they could be worse ^^;).
- The price is 7500 yen.
- We'll be sitting together~ (^-^)
※And since this is the case, I reserve the right not to sell to anyone I don't trust, for any reason

If you're in Tokyo on the 21st and the 22nd and you would like to go, please leave
1) Your name
2) An email where I can reach you
3) Your cellphone # in Japan
*You must have this!*
※All entries will be screened for your privacy

If there are no takers within 12 hours, I will open this post to the public. EDIT: Now open.

If there is more than one taker, I will get random.org to generate a winner 24 hours from now.

I'm hoping to do the transaction on the afternoon of the 21st, and then we can go enjoy the concert together on the 22nd!


EDIT: Closed~ Concert partner found! Yay!

Promised to write about what they didn't include, and here it is:

Under Cut!Collapse )

That's as much as I can remember, guys, sorry >.<
I'm kinda weirded out how I missed being on the set for the epic Oguri Shun episode by maybe just a couple of hours (they seem to film multiple episodes a day) o_0 but I'm so happy I got to see Arashi in the flesh!

Also: Aiba looks really really pretty in person. Overalls are smashing on him ^^bbb

Can't wait for my 僕が見ている風景 album~~

Another re-surfacing post!

Guys, I finally lucked out and got picked to be the audience of Arashi ni Shiyagare, and it's tomorrow.

I'm freaking out.

But despite the fact that I have 20+ pages of a report to write, three exams, and a presentation coming up, I cannot find it in me to be depressed for a second.

Because tomorrow, I finally get to see Arashi in the flesh! ASDFJKL; XDDD I'm sooo thrilled, there is nothing that can ruin my week now.

Plus, this is my first time, so I hope I do everything right. There are a surprising amount of rules.

Wear bright clothes. Cover your shoulders. No school uniforms. No skirts. No shorts. No heels. No sandals. No handbags bigger than your face.

Projected time of filming: 4 hours

Wish me luck!!!

Since I've been absent for so long, I'm really happy that I received birthday wishes ♥♥♥ You wonderful people know who you are ^_~

This is a rather meagre thing to share after so long, but I hope you all enjoy it all the same.

After days of fruitless searching, I finally spotted the elusive pink Himitsu truck in its natural habitat.

Large images under cut.Collapse )

By some stroke of luck, I happened to be in Vancouver today, so I got to see Sho as he came out of the airport.

It's true: He's tiny XDCollapse )

And now, back to sleep. I got 3 hrs last night from pure nerves and jet lag. *yawn*

Who else is watching the Olympics 2010 Opening Ceremony Tonight on TV? =D

No, not a con report since I couldn't get tickets. This is the merchandise report =)Collapse )

Oh, and the best-looking one of this con? (Well, based on the merchandise, anyway)

Sho-kun. Hands down. :D:D:D My Gosh. That suit.

Oh gosh I just finished watching the new Arashi PV and it has my heart. In so many ways.

Like Jirou and Gorou duking it out for the biggest room in the house. I am totally convinced that Sho would be a bossy big brother and Jun would be the whiny selfish youngest.

Like Shirou taking the smallest room and nobody contesting it.

Like Saburou finding the letter, and Ichirou ripping up the moving-house plans.

I love it like it's cotton candy to the soul.

Also, is it just me or did they take all five of Arashi, do a composite of their faces, and then feminize the result to get the "mother" portrait? The more I look at it, the more I find a resemblance to ALL of them, which shouldn't be possible in a normal human being. 0_0

Also, a little of my Tokyo AdventuresCollapse )
