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 >.>

Yeah, I was so disappointed when I found out he was coming to Canada but that he was still going to be far away. :(

Darn! Why couldn't Toronto have won that Olympic bid...

tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 07:03 pm (UTC)
ikr!! We could have had Sho-kun right in our own backyard. XD

Sadly, no, I won't be in town for Anime North. (T_T) I really wanted to go but...don't have the money. Ironically enough, Arashi bankrupted me for the next while.

I tried to find the JE fanmeet that was supposedly there last year but couldn't find it.

Crap!! And it sounds so fun too....
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 07:13 pm (UTC)
haha i know!! still awesome XD omg he should come here and we can make him go up the cn tower and conquer his fears by going on the glass floor LOLLLL XDDD

tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 07:18 pm (UTC)
Haha. I'm afraid of falling (not heights) so I would just be beside Sho-kun giving him sympathy. ;) (I still have trouble standing on that glass floor. All that flashes in my mind are scenarios where the glass breaks and I fall)

Please do keep me in the loop on fanmeets.

I was following a Canada group on Facebook for a while. But all the fanmeets were in Vancouver... :(

There's NO WAY he's less than a metre!! That's less than 100 cms and I'm pretty short and I'm 157cm.

What do you mean he smells like asian food? You got THAT close???

But, *sigh* so jealous....
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!25th-May-2011 12:27 am (UTC)
