Thank you, Chengdu, for your gifts to the world.
Meteor Garden occupies a special place in my fan life even if I have moved on to other things.
The joys of being a Jpop fan, or an Arashi fan in particular, far outweighs the pains. But to stay engaged, interested and excited, there are some do’s and don’ts.
Domyouji Tsukasa introduced me to how detailed a performer Matsumoto Jun is, and of course, led me to the subarashiki sekai of Arashi.
There’s one supporting actor and one scene in the film that stands out and leaves a mark long after the film is over.
「untitled」proves that Arashi goes beyond titles, including that of being “idols”.
These days, as I watch public images get shattered, I find it more and more pointless to keep doing interviews and forcing these people to spew answers that perhaps were fed to them by their agencies to adhere to an image, or tell you lies for self-protection.
A familiar song by an Okinawan band.
