Last Week, July 8, 2017, I attended Arashi's WWG! It was my first time to attend it! I remember telling myself last year that I hope I can watch it the following year.. I just wanted to experience a WWG once in my life as an Arashi fan!!!

I was lucky that the Tokyo leg was scheduled on July month! I initially planned for a Japan trip in July because of shinobi no kuni, and having WWG in the same month, made my planned trip even more exciting!!!

I tried to ballot with some friends I knew in twitter... sadly we were all so unlucky even during the reballot period!!

But I recently met a friend, sacchan (or csaca in LJ) and she asked me if I wanted to join with her buying WWG tickets. I automatically said YES!!!

As the days grow near, I made a group chat in LINE for WWG 2017 tokyo goers, and it was fun to interact with them!

Experience with Lining up for goods:
The day before first WWG show, was the start of WWG goods pre -selling, at 10 am
I met up with 2 friends, risa and sacchan at 8:30 am in the venue. We initially planned on 7am but changed it to around 8am hehehe because we aren't hard core fans who would line up super early! And true there was arleady a lengthy line before us! Surprisingly the sky was gloomy and eventually started drizzling. Everyone took out their umbrellas! The staff noticed the situation and so they started opening the goods stall earlier than usual so we had a line moving as early as 9 am! I bought several goods ahead for friends. As for me I only bought shoe bag, group clear file and the umbrella. Amazingly, we finished buying goods even before 10am! How cool is that!!!







The Day of WWG:

Before I went to DOME in the afternoon, I actually hanged out with my close friend Rina. We went to Roppongi to watch Shinobi no Kuni, walked to Tokyo Tower after and ate lunch there, Went to Tokyo Station to visit Rilakkuma store to buy Rilakkuma idol plushies (which actually sold so quickly!!) Then we went to Tokyo Dome. I ate some Gindaco Takoyaki with Rina before heading up to the meet up point that our friends set up!

The sun was scorching and we were really dying because of the heat!!! So after meeting up, we headed to our respective gate entrances and went inside the DOME.


A pic from gate 22. I was in Gate 40 again!


I am back inside Tokyo Dome to see Arashi again!! It was wondefful!!!



Then at exactly 5pm, Arashi WWG started! OMG The whole show was sooooooo funny!!!! I kept laughing!!! and smiling!!!! I kept on spotting for ohmiya moments!!! I won't dwell on details because this is not really a report! But the main point was, I realized how much I could enjoy watching WWG! If we are in awe during a concert, then in WWG we kept on laughing!! like we are really watching a live taping of an Arashi variety show!!

The show ended in around 2.5 hours.. Me and my meet up group of friends had a photo taken together. They went out to eat in the shinobi no kuni soba place. But I headed back to the apartment that I stayed since I was quite beat after a loooong day of outing ^^


I had a wonderful and memorable experience with WWG! Seeing Arashi again this year was also what made it meaningful!

Now that a concert has been announced, I will just pray and hope that my work schedule will not be in the way for the December dates in Tokyo. I hope I can hit again this year, and watch Arashi once more before the year ends!

Hi Everyone!

Here is another entry for ANS food trip. This time I am compiling all the places featured from the recent episode of

Arashi let him eat one which he liked to try the most!

So, here are the featured food places, all from Arashi ni Shiyagare episode aired last June 10, 2017. Lots of images coming.. 

open! )

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!

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.





THANKS FOR VIEWING! :D

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)

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?

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!!

Feeling a little productive! I drew aiba masaki with the hairstyle I like of his the best!

I picked no.4 :D

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!

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!

I was watching a bunch of arashi PVs from the early ones to the latest. And during truth, i found ohno really cool in the pv so i drew him!

HBD riida!!

The happiest news I ever had since passing medical board exam! Receiving an email telling me that I won Concert tickets to arashi's live tour 2016-2017 ARE YOU HAPPY?

Hell yes I am happy now!!

I feel so high and excited that I wasn't able to study tonight! Prayers answered and grateful to the people who helped me along the way!!

I never considered myself lucky but now I could say today I was lucky!

Balloted 4 tickets for Tokyo dome concert on November 20- and won!

Arashi boys, I see you soon!!!

A late post celebration but never mind that..

Last Feb 29, 2016, I received great news as my Arashi membership card arrived safely in the hands of my friend/sponsor!

It was applied at Feb 6, 2016, and fingers were crossed hoping it would arrive on time before the Japonism ballots.... And it did!!!
I am now part of the 1.9mil official fanclub members!
(Unfortunately didn't win the ballot though huhu)

As an international fan, I thought applying would be difficult and I prepared for all the necessary requirements: borrowed a japanese phone number, and a japanese mail address, and secured a non free email!

But to my surprise, the one who applied for me did it in a slightly different way!

So keep the following in mind:

I was applied through my friend under her sponsorship, hence we have the same cell number and address, so make sure you and your sponsor know each other well and trust each other! (we are friends for 19 years that we are almost like siblings now)

The email I used was my icloud.com, so if you are an ios user who is looking for ways of getting an email that will not be rejected, make an icloud email now!

Make sure your sponsor knows some details about you such as your bday and residential address wherever you are residing

This method can only be done at the Johnny's Family Club (located at shibuya tokyo)

And lastly, hope the the lady who will entertain you at JFC is a kind and considerate


Read [livejournal.com profile] rinarin_0 entry on how she applied for an international fan as a "sponsor" here for a complete idea on how my application was being processed!


Hope this can give some hope to other international fans who have a chance for a sponsoring method!

And last month, I visited japan and was able to receive my fc card and was able to visit jfc, and gave an imaginary thanks to whoever was that kind lady who helped process my application! Thank you!!
