This is a late post...
I drew this one back in April.
May was a busy month as I mentioned in my previous post so I was only able to make more posts when June started

I drew a fanart based on the magazine scans of arashi that showed half of their face, as if they were peeping hehehe

here is the sketch:

inking process:

and the finished piece!

I wanted it to have a manga feel!

oh and here is the original images which i also turned into a collage!

Hi!! It's been slightly more than a week since the release of the AYH concert BD/DVD

This was the first Arashi concert I watched, so I have so much feels for this! After watching the concert, it made me realize that it really was a wonderful concert that stayed true to their theme!

Are You Happy?

The intro video wasn't just any opening video that they always show. It was backstage footage during their preparation phase for the concert!! There were so much OTP/member ai moments, the member solos were amazing, how they delivered their performances were stunning!
Even if they had a really simple stage background of multiple square screens, the visuals were totally wonderful! I can still remember how amazed and in awe I was when sho's solo started and the very dull stage BG suddenly transformed into a HUGE HOUSE!

Arashi vocals have really changed throughout the years, like if you listen to a song released in 2005 and listen to a song released this year, you can tell their voices improved! Or is this the effect of maturity? hahaha! You get blown away by Arashi's ballad that everyone was looking forward too, Miles Away. Finally Arashi harmonizing! If they make ballads all like that, I will die happy everytime they release something!

Their concert DVD/BD also achieved the highest 1st week sales since Arafes release! Congratulations!

I'll end up my feels trip here for this concert! Truly was Happy! ;) Arashi fans should watch it!

I decided to make an entry of some featured eating places from recent Arashi ni Shiyagare episodes. I'll probably focus more on the ones that are located in Tokyo Area. Or, if there are some restaurants that I would find appetizing despite the far location, I might just consider making a post about it

Basically, this is for my reference for future food trips in Tokyo. :)

Restaurant Name: Agefuku (あげ福)

It's been sometime again since my last entry.Part of which was because of my recent transfer to DW
though I still constantly check here at LJ
The May month passed by quickly again, and it was quite a busy month in terms of work
and because of that, I got sick yesterday. Had fever and sore throat

but today I feel much better now. I think I can work tomorrow.

also on a sad note, Me and my friends weren't able to hit at all for wakuwaku gakkou for tokyo dome. It's sad but I'll still fly to Japan for my well deserved short vacation. I look forward to watching shinobi no kuni in Japan Cinemas!!

Hello again! I got busy in the past few days, plus something went wrong with our PC and it needs fixing!
So I am using a mobile device to post this entry..

The month passed by quickly and of course before the month ended, Arashi once again surprised fans with an announcement yesterday for their upcoming wakuwaku event once again. This coming June and July and they will have Sexy Zone as their students!

I was planning for a trip for July, and was having the intention of booking on the last week, but after hearing the news, I decided to change my tentative plan of last week into first week of july so that I can have a chance to watch the event!

How I wish I could attend the day of nino's bday but osaka wasn't in my expenses yet, so I will try my luck in Tokyo!

I hope I can hit and I also hope I can meet some arashi fans on the day of the event!!

Posting a year old artwork here.
This is one of my favourite nino fanarts. Last year, Fukkatsu Love single was released, and it was one of my favourite PVs of Arashi in a loong time!

I drew this because of inspiration from the PV and shop photos
I drew Nino and Sho, but I only finished Nino (I'm so sorry sho... you're still WIP)

Pencil Sketch....

Line art done using Copic Multiliner Blue Color Ink

Skin and Hair Coloring. I wanted to use blue hues and gradiation with pinks for this piece

Did the clothes.. still using Blue and Pink gradiation

Violet Copic Colors for my BG

Finishing touches with white ink for highlights and to make my art not look too flat. I forgot to put nino's mole (forgive me again)

Here is the shop photo which I used for my reference!
I didn't really copy exactly the colors though.. Since I was limited with my copic marker colors on hand, I kinda modified the colors for this.

I saw this in FB, but I don't wanna post my answers there, so what better option? HERE!!

18 questions about Arashi (since they are turning 18 this year)
Will not tag, feel free to answer them if you want to


1) What year did you became an Arashian?

Officially became one last January 2012 :D I am a 5 yr arashian now!!

2) Which member baited you and how?
Nino! I know I watched hanadan like earlier, around 2007 and heard of matsujun but matsujun wasn't enough to lure me to arashi. I remember my friend even showed me a concert during hanadan days, but still didnt get hooked.
I watched stand up drama during 2011, and at that time I was really into JDRAMAS, and nino's acting amazed me! So I kept watching his other works, then realized that he could sing well, ended up with me realizing he was part of arashi! then I saw variety programs of arashi that featured lots of actors and actresses ( such as VSA, shiyagare, himitsu no arashi chan) and then I realized that they're a really entertaining group. and their songs were actually nice to listen! \

so, thanks nino!

3) Who is your ichiban when you started? & if you chnaged, who is your ichiban now?
ichiban is nino, and I kinda described it in number 2 how it started.. it went way back to the arashi baiting hahaha. and nino still remains ichiban until now

4) What was your first concert when you became a fan.
hmm I watched Beautiful World, I think.. I remembered seeing posts of its release and I even asked for a friend to email me the soft subs XD

5) Emoticon your Arashi rank
Umm I cant emoticon my arashi rank here though because I am in the PC

7) Fav Concert (the one you keep on repeat mode)?
Fave concert is Boku no Miteiru Fuukei, others would include arafes, LOVE

8) Fave Song (group) from your favorite concert?

frome the song, Everything (refrain part)
赤から青に変わるシグナル 戻ることの出来ない旅の途中で

Aka kara ao ni kawaru shigunaru modoru koto no dekinai tabi no tochuu de
Ashita wo shinjite susumitai

A signal changing from red to green I'm in the middle of a journey that I can't turn back from
I want to go forward believing in tomorrow

Yesterday the announcement that fans have been waiting for has happened!

The Arashi Live Tour 2016-2017 ARE YOU HAPPY? concert DVD/BD release date is on May 31, 2017

That is not too far away from now!!!

After one day of refreshing yesasia for PO links to appear, finally I was able to place my preorder on the Limited version, Blu Ray AYH concert!!!

I haven't placed an order on the RE because I plan to buy it when I visit Japan later this year.

My wallet is ready to shed off money. JE knows how to do market strategy indeed!!

Bundling the Japonism Arena Show with the LE... though I already had this feeling since last year that the arena would possibly be released in DVD but bundled to one concert DVD...

I know fans are excited, and I am also aware fans are in despair with the financial crisis..

This was my first Arashi concert, and I NEED to get my hands on that LE! Can't wait for it to arrive!!

After the issue that is happening now at LJ, I also want to keep it safe.

So I think from now on I'll post more of my rants and artworks here.

I'll slowly catch up to adding people here in DW.

I will eventually join communities here as well, when I have free time or when I am off duty.

Feel free to add me!

I am now a 5 year old Arashian!! Since January 2012

Made a quick chibi style fanart of Arashi with their troublemaker PV outfits! I still love this PV and can never get bored drawing Arashi in troublemaker PV outfits!! This PV was so much fun and it opened my eyes to the world of Arashi fandom!! :D

Done with copic markers :)

kurisucchi: (setsuna)

Before the month ends, will post a fanart I drew of sho! Shows his look from troublemaker PV, my most favourite Arashi PV of all!! And yes sho kun had his birthday a few days ago!

My workspace is slightly messy.. used copic markers on this one :)

kurisucchi: (setsuna)

While watching Kouhaku last night, I made a fanart of aiba Chan in kouhaku mode! I actually had fun with him as an MC! He was himself but was able to deliver a formal and entertaining performance as shirogumi MC!

kurisucchi: (setsuna)

When 2016 started, I set a theme for it, and it was "Arashiful" which meant as what it literally means! Lots of Arashi! With that, last year, I became n FC member with the help and advices from lots of friends.

Tried my luck on the concert balloting tour, hit a ticket, flew to Japan for a second time last year, watched my very first live Arashi concert, and had a wonderful fangirling time!

This was what I was most thankful of for 2016!

This year, 2017... Will be もっと嵐フル!!!

More Arashi-ful! Hope to have more chances for Arashi-ful adventures this year!

今年の嵐フルテーマは大成功です❗️来年も,もっとアラシフルになりO ます!

kurisucchi: (setsuna)

Finally ... After 3 agonizing years of 24hour duties and overtimes, with only few days of vacation per year...

I can finally say good bye to my makkuro na jinsei!

It's tiring to be a doctor in the Philippines.. So many sacrifices..

I hope this new year will treat me well!
