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 >.>

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

awww that sux =(

really? we were just on the grass in front of the TCC, thats usually where we have it, we were off to the side a bit tho, i was cosplayed as uta no onii-san:D haha

yea its so much fun!! too bad =( next time maybe, we have fanmeets throughout the year sometimes too^^ ill let you know if theres an upcoming one
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... :(
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
hahaha XD i havent been there in forever actually so i dont remember it but i would be jumping up and down with aiba and pulling you guys LMAOOO XD sho would probably cry XD

sure thing^^ can i friend you?^^ you can friend me back if you want, even tho i dont post THAT much because of school lol

oooh yes, im part of that too, but yea the maintainer is in vancouver so thats why lol
tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 08:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Definitely friend me and I'll friend you back^^

Haha. I could totally see that happening (but, Sho-kun wouldn't cry. He'd just be extremely white) XD

kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 08:17 pm (UTC)
thanks^^ added you hehe

LOLLL yea i guess, hed prolly be on the verge of crying tho, i still remember when they made him go sky diving, he looked like he was gonna have a heart attack D:
tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 08:22 pm (UTC)
KK. Will add you back.

And yet, regardless, they still plan high-flying stunts and make fun of him about it^^ LMAO!

Sometimes I wonder how they are still good friends...
After all, Ohno still refuses to invite Nino to dinner.
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 08:25 pm (UTC)
yay^^ more lj friends hehe:D

LOLLLL i knowwww!! the staff at arashi shows and other members are all DoS XDDDDD they like to see sho suffer hahaha XDDD

LOLLLL i think theyre such good friends that they can tease each other like that LOL i somehow still refuse to believe that ohno and nino have NEVER been out with each other for dinner! nino is prolly lying to make oh-chan look bad and ohno is too lazy to care HAHAHAHAH thats my theory XD
tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 08:28 pm (UTC)
Well MatsuJun has a huge part in the planning so maybe that explains the DoS ;P

See I woudn't believe them either. Except Ohno is too honest for his own good and he corroborates the story. XD

But it is still hard to believe. Especially with all the Ohmiya love we see all the time.
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!24th-May-2011 11:53 pm (UTC)
haha i think ur right XD his doS is rubbing off on the staff XD lmao nino is super doF DoS also tho haha

haha i guess.... but .... hmmm... maybe ohno is hiding stuff from us too LOLLL they probably planned this on purpose haha it just seems wierd LOL cuz theyve known each other for so long but it seems like nino only started complaining about it last year or so (or maybe thats just my imagination XD) but ud think he would have complained earlier XD ahah his complaints have gotten really frequent lately LOL

OMG! It's the first time I've seen fellow Canadians and moreover, Torontonians here!!! YEEEEEEEY!!! *inserts Aiba high-five* XD

I really hope they include Canada in their concert in case they plan one in the US. coz everything happens there! (like the Gantz premiere---I wanted to watch it in theaters too! \(;O;)/
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!25th-May-2011 12:34 am (UTC)
YAYYYYYY!!!! YOU'RE FROM TORONTO TOO? awesomeeee!!!!!!


we should seriously have a toronto arashi fan meet:D are you coming to anime north this weekend by any chance? theres a johnnys fan meet happening on saturday:D

(oh and sorry for stalking you a bit but you're friends with hoshi_x and kikumarie too? so i am!! haha thats awesome:D lmao)

yea seriously!! they cant keep forgetting us!! ;_____; we're fans tooooo~~~ haha i wanted to watch gantz so much in theatres =( even if it was the dub, i would just be so happy to see nino on the big screen again!!
lavenderhana5 Re: YAY CANADA!!25th-May-2011 12:44 am (UTC)
This is exactly my image of Aiba-chan's high-five! XD
We should---TOTALLY!

it's all good, yep I'm friends with them. :]

I KNOW! Like, wth is this? CANADA HAS ARASHI FANS TOO! Arrrggghhh. I'm so disappointed. And you know what, I wanted to go to Vancouver just to see Sho (not really for the olympics. wahahaha. now that I think back, that must've been very stupid to think of that, it's too expensive.) What's more unfair is that my friend, one of our managers in McDonald's, was sent there as a staff coz McDonald's is one of the sponsors of the olympics. So he saw all reporters so I asked if there were any Japanese reporters there(he even had an ID like Sho's, I asked him to give it to me but he said his dog bit it. arrrgggh.) then to prove it I made him describe what he looks like and just as I thought, when I showed him an arashi pic as well, he was like, that's him! (pointing at Sho). I WAS SO JEALOUS. then after that he kept teasing me. (-___-) and tbh, he was my crush back then too. that's too ironic---my arashi crush meeting my then real-life crush. :))
kawaii_beela Re: YAY CANADA!!25th-May-2011 01:10 am (UTC)
haha yea:D

omg we should make a post on arashi_on or something!! i always see people trying to organize fan meets there D: it would be so kool!! we could go to karaoke or something:D it would be awesome to flail together and watch the dome dvd together:D but we'd need to be somewhere with a tv then, or a laptop at least haha

kool^^ hehe have u met them in person too? or just online friends? i go to karaoke and meet up with them sometimes and its so much fun hehe

YEA!! OMG i wanted to go just for sho also haha XD but yea obviously way too expensive XD omgggg wow!! thats really ironic D: damn!! it sux when people tease tho D: altho it CAN be fun sometimes XD an ironic thing happened with my friend too actually haha she lives in british columbia but she was moving to japan for 4 months to do an exchange program and she was at the airport about to catch her flight to japan when sho's flight landed in canada so she saw him at the airport and she said he walked right in front of her OMFGGGG SOOOOO JEALOUS OF HER!!! haha but seriously what are the odds eh? XD he was arriving as she was leaving LOL
