What year were you born in? How old were you when you became an Arashi fan?

I was born in 1986 so I'm currently 31yo. My birthday is in June. I created Aibakaland back in 2006 when I was 19yo, a few months before my 20th birthday. I think I became a fan when I was around 17 or 18. Feels like forever ago XD

I was born in 1974 (43 right now) and only became a fan in March of 2017. Japanese culture isn't easy to come across over here except for an anime once in a while. Sometimes I think I may be too old to be a fangirl, but whatever XD. I'm not going to stop just because of some silly number.

^ I think there is no age limit for fangirling!
I was born in 1992 (25 years old now)
It's funny, when I became Arashi fan I was 16 years old I think. That time, I thought "is it weird that I really like these men who are 10 years older than me?" but now it doesn't feel strange anymore XD

I was born in October 1 st 1990. I am 27 years old and I meet Arashi in the begining of 2011.
I was 20 at that time and I fell in love with those five boys.
There's no age limit to like Arashi <3

Arashi isn't that much older than me. Jun is about 5 years older than me but I guess they are considered to be a generation older than me. It does make me feel a little better about fangirling over them a bit.

I was born in 1976 making me 41. I became an Arashi fan in 2007-ish.
I quit worry about being too old for this fandom when I was standing in the bus line in Miyagi next to a woman that had to be in her 70s. She was as happy as we were to be there and was talking about Jun non-stop! She was the cutest thing!!

Born in 1975, will be 43 sooner than later :D

i became an arashi fan in 2007, a few months after i moved back to japan for work (left japan for work as well). they became my escape form a really demanding work and gave me a bit of balance (those who have worked in japan, particularly in engineering/manufacturing will know how crazy the work hours are there). arashi shukudai-kun was my entry into fandom during obon yasumi. did no know who they were but heck the show was funny.
a couple of weeks later i got sick and took several days of leave . . . then found yamada taro :D that was when i actively tried to find out who they were.

on hindsight though i have been watching them on and off since maybe 2002, with mago mago arashi (which came before sata sama that i watched because i used to be a smap fan) and USO Japan. i also loved kizarasu cat's eye and actually caught the filming of stand-up ear my old uni (never saw nino though, or yamapi or narimia or oguri . . . and even if i did i would not have known who they were)

i am still fan, and they still keep me sane when work goes crazy. hoping this will continue as long as arashi is around :D

I was born in 1992
I’m a fairly recent fan, only actually getting into arashi within the last year or so, but I was sort of aware of them for a while hehehe

I was born in 1994. Mum was born in 1965 and she fangirls way harder than I do. Arashi seems to be loved by all generations.

Born in 1990 so I'm 27. Came to know Arashi in 2006. Arashi really does seem to transcend generations. It's pretty cool. :)

Born in 1987, I am 30 now :x but then again there's no age limit in liking them. I started liking them when they started attending the show "Utaban" that Nakai hosted. I was a smap biased at that time and the rest is history :D Love them ever since! Just not that kind that will openly expresses her love for them. I'm usually quite quiet, maybe got to do with my age now hahaha kinda feel out of space comparing to all the younger fans ;D

I am currently 28 years old. I was born in 1989. I first learned about Arashi in 1999, so I was 10 years old when we first met. I accidentally happened upon them and have been supporting them ever since.

I'm 28, born in 1989 (almost typed 1929 there, whoops, not quite ^_^). I became a fan in 2009 but I fell off the radar for a bit between 2014 and now, keeping up only occasionally due to real-life dramas and changes.

I was born in 1985, so I am 32 right now, so I'm only 2 years younger than Jun. So just a bit less old than the boys. I became a fan around the 5x10, which for me was a perfect time because just by listening to that, I could get a feel for all Arashi music.
