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.

I muz say how impressed i was by Nino’s acting skills in this special. He plays a 22 year old cerebral palsy. Juz graduated from vocal school, he’s trying to land a job as a salesman juz like his late father. His mother is wif him every step of the way taking care and looking after him. This is actually based on a true story of Bill Porter.It’s a story of a man believing in going door to door to sell his products.

Nino’s juz amazing in this. Reali reali amazing. I nv can believe how well that man can act. I tot it was so real. Every moment, every movement touched me completely. I cried, rooted for him and laughed with him. It was reali a beautiful drama. I love Kato Rosa too. She’s juz a delight to watch. And also Higuchi Kanako who played Nino’s mum was amazing at her role.

If u have not watched this yet, go watch it. Prepare tissues too! haha

door to door

Kazunari Ninomiya, Mao Inoue play couple in drama special
Sat, April 11, 2009 (12:12am EDT)
Arashi’s Kazunari Ninomiya (25) and actress Mao Inoue (22) will co-star in a drama special on TBS. The story is based on two novels written by professional windsurfer Natsuki Iijima, who died of cancer in 2005.

During Iijima’s battle with cancer, he wrote an essay titled “Gan ni Ikasarete,” which formed part of the basis for the 2007 film “Tengoku de Kimi ni Aetara,” a biography of Iijima that starred Takao Osawa and Misaki Ito. Around the same time, Iijima penned a novel also titled “Tengoku de Kimi ni Aetara,” as well as a sequel titled “Kamisama ga Kureta Namida.” The drama special is based on those two books, which sold more than 450,000 copies combined.

The drama is also being called “Tengoku de Kimi ni Aetara.” Ninomiya plays the main character, a psychiatrist working in the counseling room of a cancer treatment center by the beach. While tending to the patients, part of his job involves taking dictation from them when they want to send a letter to a loved one.

Inoue plays the psychiatrist’s wife and mother to the couple’s twin daughters. Other cast members include Nobuko Miyamoto as a nurse, Yusuke Santamaria as a surgeon, and Naoto Ogata as the owner of a surf shop.

The broadcast date for the drama has not yet been determined.

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.

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!

This is translated by the awesome change417@lj.

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)

Arashi‘s newest single, “truth / Kaze no Mukou e,” dominated the singles chart this past week at 467,000 in sales. This sets the new 2008 record for opening week sales, surpassing KAT-TUN‘s “DON’T U EVER STOP,” which sold an initial 382,000 in May. Arashi also holds the record for best-selling single so far this year with “One Love” currently at 492,000, though “truth” is already close to overtaking it.

Porno Graffiti‘s “Gift” took #2 with a comparatively low 58,000 in sales, while the “Macross Frontier” song “Lion” came in at #3, trailing by only about a thousand copies. Buono! also made the top ten as “Gachinko de Ikou!” ranked #6.

On the albums chart, Namie Amuro held the #1 seat for her fourth straight week, moving an additional 88,000 copies of “BEST FICTION.” The closest new Japanese release was “Makai Yuugi,” the album for the “Detroit Metal City” movie, making #4 at 20,000 copies.

Episode 9 kinda talks abt how Taro is trying his hardest to adjust to “Rich” life coz he sees all his siblings enjoying themselves to the fullest. Mimura is also not really talking to Taro as he feels that Taro is lying to himself. But Ikegami comes to Taro’s rescue and pulls to a supermarket sale and also lets Taro and Mimura both have a chance to talk wif each other. All i can say is that Sho had some absolutely dreamy features here. haha…

Loved this episode coz lots more SHO… haha.. This episode is abt whether Taro cld juz get away one day without thinking abt his family. Therefore, his family pushes him to go out and have fun, and so Taro joins his classmates out for a studying session at a temple.

BUT of coz, Taro ends up still thinking of them esp when there is heavy rain as the house is not in the best condition when it rains. All i can say is that i’m biased coz there were lots of nice Sho scenes.. haha.. But this was one heck of an touching episode..

He even got cloth (well actually an old school banner) to make a yukata for his little sister to attend the festival.. kyyyaaaa…. how sweet…

And he brings with him lots more chaos.. plus a foreign boy who comes and homestays with them. This episode is all abt finding out y the boy doesnt laugh.

Guess Sho had a bigger role here since his character’s childhood was the same. And yes, the girl still annoyed me.
