Re: Arashi to suspend activities in Dec 2020

I also hope this place will stay alive when Arashi is on break.

Re: The story behind your username

My username has been Yruvian for nearly 20 years now. It's the name of one of the main characters from one of my novels. Like most of my characters Yruvian's name started as a random amount of keystrokes and adding in some vowels to make it at least borderline pronounceable... Yruvian's the only one...

Re: What TV shows/dramas are you currently watching?

<.<

The original Star Trek, MacGyver and Miami Vice series. My brother felt like rewatching them and I'm joining him.

Also watching Korean drama Suspicious Partner on Netflix in between. According to reviews it's only good at the beginning, but I'm only a few episodes in.

Re: Arashi to suspend activities in Dec 2020

Even just music wise I haven't found another band either, no. Most of the others have a select few songs I like, but it's hit and miss. With Arashi I wouldn't hesitate buying an album without a single number I know (though... that would be rather impossible unless they'd all be new songs). In all of...

Re: Arashi to suspend activities in Dec 2020

I kind of see it as once 2021 starts, Arashi will officially be on hiatus. That's a New Year's I'm not looking forward to. It's going to be the start of the dark age... I've tried checking out other JE groups (again in some cases) since the news was announced, but I haven't found a single one that ...

Re: What TV shows/dramas are you currently watching?

Nankyoku Tairiki, though at a very leisurely pace. This one's too heavy for me to watch more than one episodes in a day. I've been checking out SMAP since Killing for the Prosecution... even though I'm well aware they disbanded years ago. I also recently finished Yasashii Jikan.... in less than two ...

Re: [ALBUM] 5×20 All the BEST!! 1999-2019

I was actually expecting it to be just a collection of Singles and 5x20 from the start, so no surprise there. I preordered the LE1 a moment ago, because it may be their last album until they return. ETA. Of course I hope there will be a new album (and concert) next year, but you never really know un...

5x20 the song most likely :).

5x10 is definitely one of my favourite songs.

Re: [DRAMA] Kizoku Tantei

I liked it enough to try and watch some of the early episodes before they were subtitled, though I agree with spaask. It did get a bit predictable after a while. I have tried rewatching it recently, but I think this may be one of those that really needs time before doing that. Too many things that a...

Re: What TV shows/dramas are you currently watching?

Started watching Shikaku Tantei Higurashi Tabito yesterday.

The Good Doctor is on my to watch list, though I already know from episode one that it's the same type of autism portrayal as all the others.

It's so nice to see them do the 24hr TV, particularly now after the hiatus announcement. Let's hope for another tear-filled SP. I can't believe it's been so long. O_O
Maybe a letter to the members from those that haven't done it yet!

I just finished watching a kdrama called White Christmas, and now I'm going to start Yankee-kun to Megane-chan. I saw Yankee-kun to Megane-chan some time ago and really liked it. I should probably rewatch it at some time. Watching The Seven Deadly Sins and Assassin Classroom (the anime) at the mome...

Re: Arashi to suspend activities in Dec 2020

I'm not giving up hope that they'll be back at some time either, but the most important thing for them is to be as happy as they've made us.

From Sho's News Zero interview it seems he too is hoping for a comeback, so it's not just Aiba.

Only two more years?

I can't imagine them going on without one of their members either. I hope they'll come back something after that.

Re: [Ask fellow Arashians] From which show/series/performance/CM etc is this from?

Found the tea ceremony for others that are looking for it. It's from Arashi ni Shiyagare of May 07, 2011. In the end it wasn't a special and from a much earlier year than I'd expected. Now I can finally enjoy my own matcha while watching them XD.

At the moment watching W, a Korean one that has managed to keep me watching for the first 7 episodes already. Usually I break of Kdramas pretty quic...

Re: [Ask fellow Arashians] From which show/series/performance/CM etc is this from?

I remember them learning more about matcha and tea ceremonies, probably in Shiyagare, but I've been looking for the episode for a while. Does anyone know which date that was? I think it was a special, but I'm not sure about that any more.

Re: How long have you been in the Arashi fandom?

I'm pretty new in the fandom, only joined in the first half of last year. My biggest regret is never coming across them before. Aside from the rare anime we don't come in contact with the Japanese culture a lot over here. The question people here ask most when they find out I'm a fan is "Where did y...

This year my second favourite Arashi drama changed... because of Black Pean. For a moment I thought it would even dethrone Uta no oniisan, but I think they're just about sharing the first spot. Natsu Hayate has become one of my top favourite numbers, though not on first place either. Definitely my f...

Just got a mail from yesasia... it's now available on Region 3 DVD (and region A Blu-Ray) with English Subtitles. Sadly those are versions I can't use, but maybe some of you can.
