April is coming soon, and I have been mentioning about how excited I am for “Sekai Ichi Muzukashii Koi” and “99.9”, and I’ll say it again, I just cannot wait to watch those two dramas. I’ve been rather busy around the end of these months, especially with finals for the Japanese course I’ve taken, so I’m really looking forward to April in a whole anyway.
Involved Parties in this edition are: the Junior Boys, Kanjani8’s Maruyama Ryuhei, V6’s Okada Junichi, and Sexy Zone’s Sato Shori.
Spring is coming in Japan, and when it’s spring in Japan, it’s Sakura season. If you say Sakura, you have to talk about Hanami, which translates to “flower viewing”. I’ll let you put two and two together. Here’s Ori★Star’s ranking of the top ten groups you want to go to see the cherry blossoms with.
My First Rumor Mill, I had a hard time filtering out and getting the right info, and making them short enough, but I guess I can’t make it as short as it was before. But I hope you guys wouldn’t mind taking a bit more time on my posts ^^
This is another article based on the same tell-all book that a former Arashi staff published last year. The previous article was also about it, you can find it here.
Other than the information (liable or not) about Arashi as teenagers, we also got more insider info about the agency as well. The rules seems rather strict, but if we think about it we can understand why the agency impose these rules on them. The former staff talks about the rules and how it changed in the past years.

Just like the other article about MatsuJun’s, the first part of this article will be a rough translation of the article from Johnny’s Watcher.
Last year, a tell-all book was released by a former staff for Arashi, a second installment “Arashi, Break Zenya” was released. The title was 「”Arashi, Break Zenya” Gaiden, Arashi Seishun Playback」. It seems like in the previous book, they left out a part of the book that talked about Sakurai Sho’s bad personality.
[The first part of this article will be a rough translation of the article on Johnny’s Watcher.]
Voices of discontent raises up as Arashi‘s Matsumoto Jun takes on the role of a lawyer. Comments like, “Arashi again”, “I would want to see someone who can actually act”, “MatsuJun suits romance better” to “Rather than a Johnny’s, I want to see an actor instead…” have arisen.
Another Bits & Pieces! I seriously need to think about how to configure things out here. And I get the feeling that I might be doing a lot of this category. I just cannot filter out the articles, they all seem interesting to me… Anyways, it’s March now, April is right close, and that means Ohno & MatsuJun drama are close so I am very happy. Who else is happy about that?
