“COULDN’T BECOME SMAP…” ARASHI’S ANXIETY AS THEY FALL FROM THEIR PEAK



Since the mid-2000s, Arashi has sprung into the top artist seat, but since last year, their popularity has started to see gloom.

Arashi up to 2010 was filled with vigor. In the 2009 Oricon Yearly Ranking they held the Top 3 spots alone, and the next year sucessfully held first place on the same ranking, winning over AKB48. It was thought “Arashi’s Era” would continue. However, in the same ranking in 2011, in the Top 10 their 35th single “Lotus” took 6th place, and their 36th single “Meikyuu Love Song” took 7th.

Furthermore, Arashi has seen a decline in variety show viewership ratings. “Himitsu No Arashi-chan”, for example, has begun to stand out for making 10% ratings. Internet fans have stated “Arashi’s variety shows are just like other programs, so I’m tired of it,” or “They appear too much in the media, so I don’t have the willpower to search them out now.”


i find this lulzy myselfCollapse )

imo this article comes at a really nice time now that they've lit up tokyo tower and had their best single sale in a while

Maybe their single rankings have dropped because honestly their singles haven't good very good for the past two and a half years.

Lol basically its because they cant sell millions like akb.
Its akb who r on top of them in singles but they r the only ones.

Well, thats natural for every band to "fall from their peak", eventually.
It will happen to Arashi too, no doubt, but I dont think its this soon.
I mean, 'Wild at Heart' is the most selling single of their career, they are breaking their own records, as usual~
And, I'm sorry, but did any other band had the national landmark colored after them? I dont think so...

"Arashi’s members have lack of a personality..."
Bitch, please...

and the whole JAL thing, this just proved that Cyzo is full of BfS.

Lol. I see the article has failed to mention that spots 1-5 were taken by one group, AKB48. How terrible that Arashi is only the second best selling idol group in Japan. Clearly, they have hit rock bottom.

Arashi is not trying to become Smap anyways. They're just being Arashi. :D

HnA is kinda strange. I am surprised it took Japan so long to figure it out! And with AKB taking all the other spots, I don't think anyone really minds that Arashi is *only* 7th or 6th or whatever.
chesutoberry 18th-Mar-2012 04:49 am (UTC)
W/E, Arashi goes down when they go down~
I will still support these dorks
she746 18th-Mar-2012 10:16 am (UTC)
2 thumbs up...me too...love these 5 dorks so much....
wildlotus2006 18th-Mar-2012 04:54 am (UTC)
yeah, sure, whatever.

but truthfully, HnA is getting pretty boring.
sapphirehyeran 18th-Mar-2012 04:56 am (UTC)
I don't see the point of this article, we don't on the same planet right?
"Arashi has finally reached their peak"
what are you really talking about?
I've been following Arashi for ten years abd they've never been so popular than these days.
Your post is INVALID!
asaphira_sachi 18th-Mar-2012 04:57 am (UTC)
even new groups like Kis-My-Ft2, Sexy Zone, or A.B.C.-Z have become a topic.

Good job cyzo pointing out 101 of what an idol agency does - create new groups and then promote them like no tomorrow.



Oh and since OP mentioned the Arashified tower.

haaaaa. i agree, sho-chan. love the face.
rosemaine 18th-Mar-2012 04:58 am (UTC)
Hna is NOT that boring and its NOT Arashi's fault, they still managed to make the show interesting most of the time. I mean, replace someone else as the host of the show and you will see WHERE is the problem.

People keep forgetting Othello's personal circumstances are most likely the biggest factors for the format change.

i don't enjoy HnA anymore like i used to. I MISS VIP ROOM AND I MISS NAKAJIMA TOMOKO-SAN.

but has they reached their peak? i don't think so.
well, let's see.
