I’m depressed.. really depressed.. Arashi no shukudai-kun will stop broadcasting at the end of march onwards. Although its because they’ll have a new program on Saturdays 10pm i think starting April. *sigh* I still really love shukudai-kun alot.. It was the 1st variety program that got me hooked on forever.. The silly Ai-Land, all the silly and stupid games that made Arashi look like a fool but made us all laugh so much.. *sigh* Just feel like its a waste.. So many classic moments have come out from this show.. *SIGH* really sad man…. i wonder what other programs will let them do extreme silly things.

Anyway here’s the official announcement:

“Arashi no Shukudai-kun” to end in March
Sat, February 6, 2010 (5:56pm EST)
With the popular boy band Arashi getting another prime time show this spring, NTV has decided to end the group’s late night show “Arashi no Shukudai-kun.” The network announced that the final episode will air on March 22.

“Arashi no Shukudai-kun” has been on the air since October 2006, and has received high ratings despite its time slot.

Another prime time show for Arashi
Fri, January 29, 2010 (6:45am EST)
NTV has confirmed that popular group Arashi will have a new prime time show starting this spring. Tentatively titled “Arashi ni Shiyagare,” the show will occupy the Saturday 10:00pm time slot left open by “Enta no Kamisama,” which is ending in March.

The program is described as an improvised entertainment variety show. Each episode will feature a guest celebrity, but the members of Arashi will not be told in advance who the guest is nor what the guest will be doing on the show.

It appears that the main segment of the show will have a different guest each week to teach the Arashi members an entertainment skill in various fields, including comedy, rakugo, and kabuki. Called “The Set,” this segment will take place on various “sets,” such as a theater or kabuki stage.

“Arashi ni Shiyagare” premieres in April. Arashi already hosts two other shows during prime time.

Oricon’s year-end sales rankings for 2009 are out, and the results confirm that Arashi is the top selling artist of the year. They had the #1 single, the #1 album, the #1 music DVD, and were #1 for the first time in artist total sales. In the 42 years of Oricon’s history, no one else has topped all four categories in the same year.

Counting sales of singles, albums, music DVDs, and music Blu-ray Discs, Arashi grossed a total of more than 14.46 billion yen. At #2 this year was EXILE, who topped the list in 2008 with 19.58 billion yen in total sales.

In single sales, Arashi had the #1, #2, #3, and #5 releases, with “Believe / Kumori Nochi, Kaisei” in front at nearly 657,000 units sold. The only other artists to occupy the top three spots were Pink Lady in 1978 and Hikaru Genji in 1988. Arashi are the first to have four of the top five, as well as the first to hold the top two spots in back-to-back years.

Their “All the BEST! 1999-2009” album sold over 1.43 million copies. In DVD sales, they were #1 and #2 with “5×10 All the BEST! CLIPS 1999-2009” (591,000) and “ARASHI AROUND ASIA 2008 in TOKYO” (428,000).

More complete ranking lists are available on the Oricon website.

Currently celebrating their 10th anniversary, Johnny’s Entertainment group Arashi has seen their popularity skyrocket in the past year. It seems they have no intention of slowing down as they have been added to the lineup for NHK’s Red and White Singing Contest.

Their newest single ‘My Girl’ has also become a hit, successfully earning them the top 4 spots on this year’s Oricon singles chart with the highest first week sales. ‘My Girl’ has reached number 3 on the charts, just after ‘Ashita no Kioku / Crazy Moon’ and ‘Believe / Kumorinochi Kaisei’. The fourth spot also belongs to them with their previous single ‘Everything’. They seem to have effortlessly dominated the sales in the singles chart for 2009.

In addition, fans from all over the world were thrilled when they announced their appearance on NHK’s Red and White Singing Contest. It is the first time that Johnny’s Entertainment will be having four groups perform on the show. Arashi’s popularity has continued to rise within this year, especially riding on the success of individual projects from all five members. To be invited to perform at the 60th Red and White Singing Contest during their 10th year seems very appropriate.

On September 15th 2009, Arashi celebrated their 10th anniversary!
Even after 10 years, they continue to have an avid fan base, and there are no signs of their popularity diminishing.
Along with their careers as singers, they’re riding high on their successes as actors and newscasters as well.
10 years ago on September 15th the members had marked their debut with a press conference in Honolulu, Hawaii. To commemorate the special day, goo [a Japanese search engine and web portal] conducted a survey in which they asked fans their favorite Arashi song. Let’s take a look at the ‘Favorite Arashi Singles Ranking’!
The No.1 song was ‘Love so sweet’, and ‘One Love’ came in at No.2. ‘Love so sweet’ was the main theme song for the TBS Friday Night drama ‘花より男子2 (リターンズ) / Boys over Flowers 2 (Returns)’, and ‘One Love’ was the title theme song for the movie ‘花より男子ファイナル / Boys over Flowers F (Final)’. Matsumoto Jun appeared in both the drama and the movie. Needless to say, these two singles were immensely popular. Their debut single ‘A・RA・SHI’ took the No.3 spot. Arashi became the special supporters of the 1999 FIVB Men’s World Cup (Volleyball Championship), and ‘A・RA・SHI’ was the main theme song for Fuji TV’s live coverage of the tournament. In just a week after its release, ‘A・RA・SHI’ sold nearly 560,000 copies. At that time that was a new record for a debut single. The song is undoubtedly the cornerstone of Arashi. ‘One Love’ and ‘truth/風の向こうへ (truth/Kaze no Muko e)’ (ranked in at No.4) were the No.1 and No.2 singles of the 2008 Oricon Ranking. The singles epitomized the group’s ever-growing popularity.
How many of your favorite Arashi songs ranked in? Check below for the whole list!
As was mentioned before, in addition to their music the Arashi members’ have thrived in an assortment of different fields. Fans must have high hopes for Arashi as a group, and also for the individual members. It will be interesting to see how much they will continue to evolve and further their careers!

1.Love so sweet
2.One Love
4.truth/風の向こうへ (truth/Kaze no Muko e)
5.Beautiful days
6.明日への記憶/Crazy Moon~キミ・ハ・ムテキ~ (Asu eno Kioku/Crazy Moon~Kimi wa Muteki~)

Charts: Arashi, Kiyoshi Hikawa set records
Wed, August 26, 2009 (2:46am EDT)
As expected, the boy band Arashi dominated the charts this past week with their collection “All the BEST! 1999-2009.” The album sold 753,000 copies, setting their own personal record for first-week sales.

The album also sets the record for opening week sales during the 2009 period. The previous highest was Mr.Children’s “SUPERMARKET FANTASY,” which sold 708,000 copies when it was released this past December. That album has already become a million seller, suggesting that Arashi’s album will likely achieve that milestone as well. If it does, it will be their first million seller.

Aside from Arashi, the week’s top ten included new releases from Big Bang (#3), MINMI (#5), Denki Groove (#6), and Hi-Fi CAMP (#8).

On the singles chart, Kiyoshi Hikawa also set a record. His “Tokimeki no Rumba” sold 68,000 copies to become his third chart-topper, which is the most for a solo enka artist.

TOKIO (#3), Yuko Hara (#5), The Gospellers (#7), Tatsuro Yamashita (#8), and Ayabie (#10) also entered the top ten.

Arashi’s Aiba stars in television drama
Sun, August 2, 2009 (5:26pm EDT)

Arashi member Masaki Aiba (26) is set to take on his first lead role in a drama series this fall. He will star in TV Asahi’s “My Girl,” his first series since “Yankee Bokou ni Kaeru” in 2003.

Aiba, who is more known for appearing in variety shows than in dramas, said that he wants to show his fans a “completely different Masaki Aiba” from his usual self.

“My Girl” is based on a manga by Mizu Sahara (an alternate pen name of mangaka Sumomo Yumeka), currently being serialized in Shinchosha’s Weekly Comic Bunch. The comic is described as an “ultimate love story” about a young man named Masamune Kazama (Aiba). During high school, he had a girlfriend four years older than him, but she suddenly left one day. Six years later, he receives news that she has passed away. In addition, she secretly gave birth to Masamune’s child, whom he finally meets and decides to raise.

TV Asahi will broadcast “My Girl” in its Friday 11:15pm time slot, starting in October

Arashi’s latest single, “Believe / Kumori Nochi, Kaisei,” dominated the charts this past week. With roughly 502,000 copies sold, it has become the best-selling single of 2009 so far. It is also the first to break half a million in its opening week since KAT-TUN’s “Real Face” (754,000) in April 2006. Arashi achieved the same feat once before with their debut single “A-RA-SHI” (557,000) in 1999.

New singles flooded the top ten, occupying the next seven spots behind Arashi. The releases came from GLAY, AKB48, Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi, Yuna Ito, YUKI, Ken (of L’Arc~en~Ciel), and ROCK’A’TRENCH.

On the album rankings, FUNKY MONKEY BABYS edged out a win with their aptly named third album, “FUNKY MONKEY BABYS 3.” The album sold 80,000 copies, only 2,000 more than Chatmonchy’s “Kokuhaku.” Also in the top ten were JUJU, supercell, Mika Nakashima, Dragon Ash, Kalafina, and AI.

This is reali super funny. This episode of Arashi no Shukudai-kun was running on live. Nino decided to hynotise Sho into doin a backflip, as Sho juz cant do one at all so i guess it wld be funny if he were to do one. haha.. Sho den pretended not to wake up, so Nino changed it a little bit by making him into another person. haha.. But in the end he still had to do a backflip. haha.. Watch towards the back. I loved it when he went down on his knees saying ” KOWAIIIIIIIIIII”… haha.. oh Sho-chan!

Q1. If you finish work early, will you…
hang out outside? (3) – Aiba, Jun, Sho
go home straight? (2) – Nino, Ohno

Aiba: If I don’t feel well, I’ll go straight home. But if I’m not tired, I’ll meet up with my friends. But sometimes it’s hard to get hold of friends at the last minute. At times like that, I’ll borrow DVDs to watch at home.

Jun: If I finish work early, I’ll usually go somewhere. Shopping or watch a movie… Sometimes I go alone, sometimes I go with my friends.

Sho: If I finish work early, it’ll be a waste to go straight home! I’ll definitely hang out. I’ll ask my friends out for a meal etc. If my work ends in the evening, I go buy CDs, clothes & etc. If I don’t do so, I usually don’t get the chance to shop.

Nino: I’ll go straight home without hanging out anywhere. There isn’t any particular place I want to go to, so I’ll go straight home after work. Sometimes I eat with my friends, but not anymore recently because I’ve been so busy. I practise card magic tricks at home. (laughs)

Ohno: I’ll not hang out anywhere, go straight home & prepare to go fishing! Because I want to go fishing quicky, if work ends early, I’ll go home straight. (laughs)

Q2. After you reach home, do you…
stay in your outside clothes for a while? (2) – Jun, Ohno
change immediately? (2) – Aiba, Sho
depends (1) – Nino

Jun: If I wear tight-fitting clothes, I’ll change since it’s uncomfortable. But I rarely wear them anyway. If it’s denim or casual clothes, I’ll just stay in them & not change.

Ohno: I’ll take of my pants & socks, leave my shirt alone. So it’s just t-shirt & underpants. (laughs) You can relax like that ne. But if it’s just underpants, it gets cold sometimes. So if I can’t take it, I’ll wear shorts.

Nino: If I perspire, I’ll change. If not, I don’t change. The clothes I change to also varies from day to day.

Aiba: Mostly, I’ll change. I have various types of shorts suitable for all seasons. As for the top, it depends on the season, it can be t-shirts or sweat shirts.

Sho: I’ll change immediately when I reach home. I wear shorts used for basketball & t-shirts. I brought these along with me when I went to Beijing. Somehow, I can’t get use to the hotel’s bathrobes there.

Q3. When you eat at home, do you…
eat slowly & enjoy the food? (1) – Sho
eat quickly & get done with it? (4) – Aiba, Jun, Ohno, Nino

Sho: Right before I went to Beijing, I had dinner with my Dad, just the two of us. We talk, ate & drink for about 2 hours. And, my Dad cooked the shabu-shabu for me.

Aiba: I seldom eat at home, but when I do, I eat quickly. Sometimes when I feel like cooking, then I’ll cook instant noodles & add lots of ingredients. And I finish it quickly.

Jun: If I eat at home, it’s fast. Sometimes I cook myself. Recently I made hiyashi chuka (cold noodles). Simple soy sauce flavour.

Nino: For me, I don’t take eating as something enjoyable. (bitter laugh) After all eating is just required to replenish energy, so I eat fast.

Ohno: I enjoy eating so I want to eat slowly but… I am always hungry, so I end up gobbling up the food. (laughs) Recently, I have been eating in my room while watching my favourite fishing channel.

Q4. When you are lazing around at home, do you prefer to…
watch TV? (3) – Aiba, Nino, Ohno
listen to music? (2) – Jun, Sho

Aiba: It is my habit to switch on the TV when I get home. And in the morning when I am preparing to go out, music is a must. The choice of songs depends on the weather that day. My mood changes depending on whether it’s sunny or rainy.

Nino: Whatever the TV is showing, I’ll somehow feel like watching it. Just a while ago, I watched Olympics very often. I prefer watching sports & I watch baseball & soccer.

Ohno: Now, I earnestly/ only watch fishing channel. Because I keep watching it, sometimes I feel “I have seen this scene before”. But I won’t get sick of it & I’ll still watch it. (laughs)

Jun: When I want to be at ease, it’s music. When I want to relax, it’s TV. They may sound the same, but it’s different to me. (laughs) As for what genre of music, that depends on my mood.

Sho: Basically I listen to music using my PC. As for TV, I check Arashi’s shows. And usually when I get home, there is only late-night programmes to watch anyway. In Beijing’s hotel, I didn’t get to switch on the TV at all.

Q5. When you want to contact your friends from home, you belong to the…
text message type? (2) – Ohno, Sho
phonecall type? (1)  – Aiba
both (2) – Jun, Nino

Ohno: I text message more. I usually don’t make phone calls. I use alot of emoticons. I feel weird if I don’t add something else in place of the full-stop.

Sho: A mail is less troublesome/ bothersome . I don’t mind writing long mails but I don’t really use emoticons. Actually, since I change my handphone model, I still haven’t really memorise how to use the phone yet. (bitter laugh)

Jun: It depends on who I am contacting. If it’s someone I am familiar with, I’ll call. If it’s someone whom I don’t usually contact, I don’t know when is the right time to call, so I’ll text.

Nino: It depends whether the person calls me or text me. I’ll return a call with a call, a text message with a text message. I don’t really contact people myself so it all depends on the person contacting me.

Aiba: I belong to the phone call type since long ago. A call is better. Even if I know the person can’t pick up, I think “I can just leave a voice message” & I’ll just call. (laughs)

Q6. When bathing, do you prefer…
taking shower? (3) Jun, Nino, Ohno
soaking in bathtub? (2) Aiba, Sho

Jun: I take showers more often. When I want to bathe, I want to bathe immediately. So it’s troublesome if I still have to prepare the hot water for the bathtub. And I shower quite fast. I am not the type that takes bathing time to relax.

Nino: If I don’t have much work the next day, sometimes I soak in the bathtub, but most of the time I take showers. I want to get to sleep faster rather than take my time bathing.

Ohno: Shower. Takes about 5 minutes. I’ll feel dizzy if I soak in warm water & I’ll get up immediately. So I don’t really like hot springs either. Even in winter, I take showers. it’s good I can tolerate the cold. (laughs)

Aiba: I bathe for about 10 minutes. I like a warm bath. The time I soak in the bathtub is really short, like a crow soaking itself in water, but I still want to soak in a bathtub.

Sho: If I travel, I take showers. But at home, It’s definiely the bathtub. My relax pose is to soak  my whole body in warm water, with just my face floating on the surface & I’ll go “Aa~”. It reminds me when I am in my mother’s womb? (laughs)

Q7. Do you do train/ excercise at home?
Yes. (2) – Aiba, Ohno
No. (3) – Jun, Nino, Sho

Aiba: Sometimes I go jogging after I reach home. I started doing so when I was running with Edo Harumi-san in 24H TV. It feels good to run at night.

Ohno: I do 50 sit-ups & 50 push-ups. It may seem tough to exercise on a daily routine but if its just that, I finish it in about 2 minutes. Though I do it at night sometimes, I train more often in the mornings.

Jun: It depends on my work. In 24H TV, I acted as a sick person whose body cannot move, if that’s the case, I don’t feel like training. But if I’m acting as a strong character, I’ll train.

Nino: Till now, I’ve never thought of training. I don’t think it’s necessary & I don’t intend to do it in the future either. (laughs)

Sho: I’m the type that build muscles easily if I train. If I train & I don’t do it continuously, the muscles will become fats. So I decided not to train. (laughs)

Q8. When you sleep, do you…
switch off all the lights? (5) – Erm, all 5…
leave some lights on? (0)

Aiba: I switch off all the lights but I’ll open the curtains to let light come in from the outside. I use blackout curtains so my room becomes totally dark. If I l close the curtains, I wouldn’t know if it’s morning already. And I listen to the radio before I sleep, so I can remember the night radio programme schedule pretty well.

Jun: I can sleep with the lights on, but it’s a waste to leave them on. It’s better not to waste unecessary electricity & be kind to he earth.

Nino: It’s a waste if you don’t switch off the lights when you sleep. I don’t mind if the room is bright or the bed is uncomfortable or anything. I can sleep anywhere. So when I share a hotel room with someone, I can accomodate my roommate.

Ohno: I  usually switch off the lights, but recently, because I have been really busy, I fall asleep without switching off the TV. Yesterday, it was showing “Terminator 3” & I wanted to watch it. But I fell asleep the minute it started so I didn’t get to watch at all. (bitter laugh)

Sho: I used to switch on the reading lamp in the past, but now I sleep without it. In Beijing, because I stayed in a hotel near the stadium, the olympic flame helped light up my room. (laughs)
