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 Re: YAY CANADA!!25th-May-2011 07:56 pm (UTC)
@kawaii_beela Just search for fanmeets in Arashi_on and copy what they did. I live in the border GTA area so I'm not familiar with karaoke places in Toronto. Otherwise I'd offer to organize it.

Message me and maybe we'll figure it out together.

@lavenderhana5 I added you back^^
I LOVE them too!! I went to see them live when they came and performed in Ottawa as representatives for Canada and Japan's celebration of 80 years of international relations.
When I ran into Maynard in the airport I was nervous that I had trouble taking a picture with my camera. Thankfully his manager showed up and took it for me. :P

lavenderhana5 Re: YAY CANADA!!26th-May-2011 05:10 am (UTC)
Okay guys, I don't know where to sing karaoke here but most of my friends say there's a lot in downtown or korean town but I haven't been to one yet. :))

@kawaii_beela: I'll wait for your post! I'm to excited! (>___<)/

@tennyo29: WHOA LUCKY! Nice manager they got there. waaaa! Wait, just to be sure, Maynard is the lead vocalist, right?
tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!26th-May-2011 05:15 am (UTC)
Umm, yes? Both of the brothers take the lead in songs so it's hard to say who you're referring to....!/maynardplant (has his picture)
lavenderhana5 Re: YAY CANADA!!26th-May-2011 05:30 am (UTC)
oh! hahaha. It's just that I thought the other one was the lead coz of aishiteru pv. :)) anyway, I'd love to go to one of their concerts! XD
tennyo29 Re: YAY CANADA!!26th-May-2011 04:01 pm (UTC)
