WARNING:BORING STORY XD
I knew about Arashi in 2008, when I had to stop college and I had to go back to Japan due to some family problems.
I saw the show “Himitsu no Arashi-chan” (I prefer the HnA back in 2008 than the current). I liked the show and started to watch regularly and also watched Shukudai-kun whenever able to stay awake till the show starts. I realized that Jun is my beloved Doumyouji that I always watched here in Philippines XDD. I also watched Shimura Doubutsuen sometimes. I didn’t had interest in their music back then, I just love them in Variety Shows and dramas (Hana Yori Dango, Uta no Oniisan, Smile, Ryuusei no Kizuna,).
Their shows are the only thing I look forward and get excited to that time XD I didn’t do any research at all despite of that…I just watch them on TV, if not..I play online games (Meet-me, WoW, Ragnarok, Fiesta, Grand Chase). OMG was I a Hikikomori? O_O (just realized that now).
Then got back in Philippines in 2009.
Then I went back to Japan again in 2010 for the same family problem. Then I stayed with my aunt’s family, my cousin was crazy about Arashi and watches DVDs everyday; concerts and PVs. At first I didn’t like their music that much, so I just ignore what she watches and go to the room to play online games. Just the same as my last stay, I just watch Arashi on TV regularly (but Shukudai-kun already ended that time >_< I wanted to watch that show more, but Shiyagare started :D)
Until I saw their KTBNMF kokuritsu concert DVD! She forced me to watch with her so she could share the experience; what she felt and how they reacted during the concert. My cousin was able to go to that concert because her friend managed to get ticket for two! (I really envy her now XD). She got me Jun stuffs because she knows I love Doumiyoujiiiii! but I paid her bec. she’s just a High School student ne! and the goods are quite expensive!
It made me want to listen to their music and watch their PVs! I watched together with my cousin and flail together with her screaming “Kyaaaa~” “uuuwaa~” “cho-kakkooiiii~” “kyyaawaaiii~” XD then we watched the PV of “Crazy Moon”, that was the moment I fell for my beloved Oh-chan XD Then “Truth”! Oh~ I fell even more! then “Monster” OMG *I died* XD
Then I searched their old shows, the discovered that I also liked them in the past! like “child minder” & “Shimura doubutsuen” during our vacation in Japan in 2003 & 2006! I just can’t remember the faces and the title of the show..but I remembered by the senarios. My gosh! like I was destined to like them XD (lol).
I fell for them even more *O* I listened to my cousin’s story about them every time, we always talk about arashi before we sleep XD
Then I started to research about them! The more I get to know about them I get to like them XD Also found out some bad things~ I got a little disappointed…but later on I thought they are also humans that commit mistakes and past is past! anyone can change :3
Then I started my part time job to earn extra money for Arashigotos! CDs/DVDs, Movies, Concert goods, FC membership, Wakuwaku gakkou, Magazines, going to Aiba family restaurant, going to the places they went! I really had so much fun back then! (I asked the tenchou not to give me works on Thursday & Saturday nights so I could still watch Arashi! my aunt laughed at me XD I never missed a single episode during my stay :3) My cousin went out for Arashigotos every time we had same free day XD
Then I made friends at my part time job! Now I’ve got people to talk to!! (aside from the people I stay with). I am also thankful for Arashi for this XD I worked for Arashi but I’ve got a great gift, friends!!
Thanks to Arashi and my cousin who pushed me to like them more XD I’ll love them forever!
Then I got back here in Philippines last Oct. 2011 :D I became sociable than before and got some self-confidence, thanks to my part-time job in a restaurant :D I can talk to people I’m not familiar with.
I’m a newbie online fangirl :3 but now I really enjoy SNSs.
