Arigatou ~ Sekai no Doko ni Itemo

I want to watch...

I'm so sad I missed the first episode of Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo because I was working :( 

And to make matters worse, no one has subbed it and put it online yet!! T____________T 

I'm so sad. I wanna see it! *sigh* End of post. 

If anyone has a link and they wanna share, feel free.

Yamada Ryosuke's Mystery Virgin & Moonlight PV's

Mystery Virgin


Ohayou Gozaimasu! 
I just thought that I'd post these before I left for school. 
OMG! I love him! :3 <3 haha
But critically speaking, I would have liked to see
back-up dancers in the pvs.. because it was kind of awkward with just Ryo-chan 
running around in Mystery Virgin. BUT, overall I thought that the pvs were 
pretty nice.  I think Moonlight had a better set overall because it changed every
now and then. 

But to Ryo-chan once again,   おめだとうございます!

I have to jet, so I'll post again later. 
I hope everyone's start of the year is going great!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! あけましておめだとうございます!


Happy New Year Everyone!! It's finally 2013! 

I hope everyone enjoyed their New Year's Eve and I hope that everyone's year is filled
with happiness, prosperity, and love.  

My year has been busy and somewhat stressed at points so I'm hoping that this year will not 
be too stressed and that I somehow make it through the rest of high school and my first year of college. 
Wish me luck! 

Earlier tonight, I was luckily able to watch most of Kohaku and Johnny's Countdown (among other various shows)
I did take some videos but by the time I'm up again people will most likely 
have already posted videos/pictures - but hey! i like sharing so I'll share mine anyways :3 

I want to see the first sunrise (which is in a couple hours) so good night everyone!!
I hope you're celebrating wherever you are!! :D

Arigatou ~ Sekai no Doko ni Itemo

Why is it when I get busy I miss out on all the good stuff?

So lately I have been really busy with college applications, final exam preparations, and scholarship essays/applications so 
even when I saw the news (through my friends on twitter and facebook) about Yamada Ryosuke's debut as a solo artist, it never crossed my mind to actually KEEP UP with all of his activities and don't even get me started on my short term memory loss for the annual Johnny's Countdown.

How dumb right? 

Ironically enough it's when I'm in a time crunch (i.e. tonight, today, whatever you want to call it) that I remember this LIGHTBULB

So I mean, what can I do (because it's really nagging me) but go onto Johnny's website and look up the schedule for the next couple of weeks AND THEN go onto YouTube to look up videos because silly me, I totally forgot that here in Japan they do short pv's before it's actually released and then -- DUH! the artists perform ahead of time. . . . 
GAH! So I finally find a video and what do you know the date was th

Did I mention that I'm REALLY busy and REALLY behind? No? Well there you go lol.

Anyways, I guess the point of this journal entry is that I really can't believe that he had already done so many performances without me knowing or even thinking about it *sigh*.
As to the countdown I'm super excited for it! I'll actually be working NYE so I'm not sure if I'll actually get to watch the whole thing BUT FINGERS CROSSED!!
Before I end this one I just want to say CONGRATULATIONS RYO-CHAN! おめだとうございます!


P.S. In case you wanted to know. Yes I am happy for him. DON'T get mad at me.  I don't think that just because he has debuted that he is going to be spending less time with JUMP. It's all about a balancing act.  Ryosuke's always going to be first and foremost a Hey! Say! JUMP member, he's never going to forget that and you all shouldn't either.  Just support him and encourage him because I think that going solo when you've been in such a large group and in a large talent agency for such a long time would be a lot more difficult that people would think. Plus, he's always worked really hard so you can't say it's a bad thing that he's debuted. <3

Please go ahead and comment and if I don't get to post before then,........

Trying Harder

To: LJ Friends, random peeps, all you out there.

From: Me :) 

How has everyone been? Good? I hope so.  This year has been pretty busy ne?
It's been a really really long time, and I'm sorry if anyone actually looks at this haha. 
I'm really bad with keeping up with my various internet accounts, texting and messaging
people back etc. 
Looking at my page I've come to the conclusion that I really just want to write about 
whatever comes to mind.  I'm going to try and post more but not have a specific topic
that I'll only post about.  Don't get me wrong, this page is definitely going to 
have a lot to do with music and my growing interest in music genres from around the globe
so once I start posting things that don't have everything to do with Johnny's please don't get mad 
or anything. 

This is a letter from me to you (whoever you may be)

Kohaku & Johnny's Countdown 2010

Happy New YEAR!! It's 2011! 

I hope everyone's year is kicking off w/ a great start . . .
my year ended w/ watching Kohaku and the last 45 minutes or so of the Johnny's Countdown

Might i say that Arashi did a great job hosting Kohaku this year??
They truly did. . . On another note their performance was also really
great to watch :) They performed a medley of all of their 2010 songs. :)

There were, I believe, over 100 performers/people on the stage - which is amazing ! 

Good Job ARASHi ! 

While I was watching Kohaku I was trying to flip to Johnny's Countdown but
unfortunately I didn't get to see all of it :(
The part that I did see was enjoyable though and I'm extremely glad that
I was able to end the year watching Johnny's Countdown for the first time on tv :DDD

I'll post a link up to a video I recorded of it later :)

Once again Happy NEw year !

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!!!!! <3


I know that it's not 2011 yet, but for me I have (as of this minute) . . .

only 2 hours and 40 minutes left of 2010 :(( 

For a lot of people there's a lot more time than that .. but for those who do i wish an

advanced HAPPY NEW YEAR :D 

I hope everyone had a great year and that they'll have just as

good of or even better year. C:

Tomorrow, my mom and I are going to go to some of the malls and line up to
buy some HAPPY BAGS . . . If you don't know what a Happy Bag is,
here in Japan store owners, or shops put together bags of their merchandise
and sell it to you for a price.  The bags are filled with random contents
and my friend says that the price of all the items are usually over the
amount that you paid for the bag.

Hey! Say! JUMP

The year is coming to a close and Hey! Say! JUMP's newest single Arigatou ~ Sekai no Doko ni Itemo (released 12/15)

Is doing great on the Oricon charts . . .  and like their preevious singles held #1



Although some people don't seem to like it, it has really catchy and the mv is pretty decent . .. .  even if the translations don't make sense . . . or the "thank-you's" in various places confuse you ... this song - in my mind - is a great way to say thank you to all of Hey! Say! JUMP's fans around the world.   ~~~ 

To those who haven't seen the MV yet or heard the song click on this link to see it C:

Arashi Love


There really isn't too much for me to write about that other bloggers haven't already blogged about as of right now.

But while I was at a festival this weekend, something really hit me..

While I was walking around, I noticed that all of the game booths

had ARASHI uchiwas, pictures, bags etc . . .

I did not see any Hey! Say! JUMP, NEWS, KAT-TUN, Tegomass (you get the idea)

Uchiwas or anything else at those booths.. just ARASHI so I got to thinking about

ARASHI's popularity and while I really like ARASHI -- I really hope that somehow

vendors will start opening up to some of the other JE bands - especially

Hey! Say! JUMP ! <3

I just wanted to talk about that :DDD

So if you read this pointless post (at least in my mind) THANK YOU VERY MUCH! 

          Lots of Love,

                    <3 Izzy

P.S. Comments are always appreciated ! :D
