Arama They Didn't

Arashi has heard about Arashi Peru fundraising efforts

  It seems like the good news never stops. :)

VS Arashi Producer Masafumi Futagawa tweeted today that the Arashi members have read the Yomiuri Shimbun article on the efforts of Arashi Peru to raise money for the disaster victims:

Thanks for your support!! All the member of Arashi had read the newspaper of Pelu!! They were very impressed!!

VS Arashi Producer Yatagawa tweets about Arashi Peru


Also, he followed with a tweet in Japanese:

The filming (of VS Arashi) ended without issue. Everyone was as cool and calm as ever. Yesterday I tweeted about the article on Peru, since then I've received messages from Arashi fans around the world and I'm extremely grateful. Arashi are really loved all over the world. I'm surprised and excited (^ ^)

WOW!! So it's true. It's been confirmed. XD

Congrats, Arashi Peru!

As an unofficial reminder on behalf of the mods at arashi_on  , as much as it would be awesome for Arashi to hear about the fundraising effort on arashi_on that raised so much money, we cannot tweet to VS Producer Futagawa (@dandymasafumi) or Kan (@kankanp) about it.

If JE were to become aware of arashi_on   , it would cause issues for all those people who upload and sub Arashi videos and this would, in turn, make it more difficult to keep up with our beloved boys. As such, we'll just have to be satisfied that we have all done a good deed and banded together to help those in need. :)

Isn't that why we did it in the first place?

I will note, however, that I did send a tweet to VS Producer Futagawa (without mentioning arashi_on   ) noting that not just Peru had done fundraising but that fundraising had also been done by JE fans. He responded back acknowledging the tweet. So, Arashi is aware that other fundraising is going on beyond that of Peru.

Again, congrats, Arashi Peru!!

UPDATE (May 25, 2011):

I don't want to make another post so I'll just add this here. I was tweeting back and forth with VS Arashi Producer Futagawa and asked him what Arashi said when they heard the news.
Here's his response:
"They were amazed and appreciative. They said they were thankful that there are those who support them this much in foreign countries where their CDs aren't even sold."

Of course, I replied that they are sold on the Internet and that's where we buy them^^
Hehe, that solves the mystery of Arashi's reaction. Although it still would be nice to see a video of some sort. Oh well, beggars can't be choosers. Though I'll still cross my fingers >.>

tennyo29 They better book a BIIGGGGG stadium...24th-May-2011 07:09 pm (UTC)
Even if they *only* came to NYC it would be amazing :D

If that happens they better get a friggin BIIGGG stadium or something to host it in because you know fans from ALL OVER North (and possibly even South) America will be booking plane tickets to get there. ;)

They do, this province will be shunned. DEG went to Montreal but I don't live far from the old city!! Basically, if one knows where Base Valcatier is, it's one minute away from where I live.

Even though I'm not an Arashi fan, holy fuck I would totally wanna meet Grandpa!!

THIS. Seriously Canada gets nothing and it makes me want to cry sometimes. I mean, why couldn't we get GANTZ too? D:
If they were to ever come they better include Toronto so I can actually go!
