For ARASHI to be in 2 different places technically at the same time on Fri's MUSIC STATION 2 hours special , that's quite wild

ARASHI really look as though they were physically present in TV Asahi's studio where in reality they were in Hyogo's Koshien Stadium

Was a bit strange to see holograms of ARASHI where they sat besides Hey ! Say ! JUMP in the studio though and the way they appeared suddenly freaked me out slightly haha

It's not often I get to talk to someone that worked with DAIGO on a professional level (let alone in English) and for that , it's quite cool

I'm still mind blown about it though damn xD

I'm not sure what to say regarding YUI's second marriage. Already hearing some people being divisive on her recent marriage...

I hope she doesn't mess up her second marriage like her last one.
And I'm hearing some people are divisive with Chiaki Ito's solo debut as well... (If you're wondering, Chiaki Ito was a member of AAA until her marriage last year led to her departure from the group.)

Due to different values that yui & her 1st ex husband had

I'm surprised when I saw that she's expecting + getting married again as yui was divorced last Aug :O

But hey whatever makes her happy that's the most important thing . Hopefully yui's 3rd kid will be a girl as she already has twin boys

I can't believe BREAKERZ sung Le Creuset's Kuroi Bara Noka Hori in today's Day 1 of BREAKERZ Fan Club Live 2018

That 'song' still makes me laugh so bad after all these years & hard to believe the last time BREAKERZ sung it was 8 years ago at their 2010 Nippon Budokan concert o_O

But the infamous Le Creuset's Kuroi Bara Noka Hori is back , lmao & my friends can't believe that either

Tackey & Tsubasa has disbanded =(

Not very surprised but I couldn't help but feel sad about it . They had so much potential and I always wonder why they weren't able to match up to the success that KinKi Kids attained

Very unfortunate ._. but at the same time , I hope Tsubasa will get well soon . I think his health issues eventually got in the way :x

Nanase Nishino, one of the 'key' members of Nogizaka46, announced last night (Thursday, 9/20) that she is going to graduate from the group early next year.

What's oddly intriguing is Nanase's 24 years old, while Mai Shiraishi (another 'key' member) is 26. People have been speculating that Maiyan (Shiraishi) is supposed to graduate soon, but Nanase is going to graduate first? I mean, is Maiyan trying to pull off a Kojiharu (Haruna Kojima, since graduated from AKB48) in Nogizaka? Umm...

I'm very shocked at this in utter disbelief.

She's definitely an artist I gonna follow closer now.
She's like the female Taichi Mukai for me.

^ I really liked the album too! Though I kinda wish there were more songs in the style of the title track, that song was such an instant hit for me. But I'm interested in following her as well. The Taichi Mukai comparison is on point, too.

Yaaaay, you too!
The problem with her is that she's still Indie.
She doesn't even have an official site, only Twitter, Instagram and Soundcloud.
Well, she is still totally new to the scene as well, so she might get attention pretty quickly.
Personally I only dislike Hatsukoi from the mini, everything else is love for me, even the Hush remix.

I had no idea any of this had happened This is the downside of not really being in social media

Went to my local Book Off yesterday and the entire Jpop section was gone! WTH! I wanted to buy some Ayu remixes. I'm so disappointed ;___; They have loads of western music but the Jpop/Kpop section has been replaced with manga.

In Finland we used to have a shop called Blippo and they were the only ones (10 years ago) who'd sell Jpop CD's. I got most my Ayu stuff from there but then they disappeared, now they're only online and sell cute Japanese stuff and some magazines but that's it. So I feel your pain, my friend. I still have my Blippo membership card because I loved that place and miss it so much
