Here is this week's ichimen about the 100-hour overtime problem, we also included, obviously, the part about Arashi winning the "Artist of the Year" award, and most of Sho's cuts (a comment about the Academy awards, Ralph-san's quiz and a comment on the smoking ban that Sho talked about 2 weeks ago). Thank you to the translator for being always so consistent, and having translated the extra parts so fast!
I noticed after finishing timing this that my original raw video had a glitch, and no matter how many times I tried to re-encode it, the sound was always off at the second part of the video. So I had to use another less high-res quality raw, but it's still HQ nonetheless.
Living in the EU, reading about the number of overtime hours gives me a cold sweat, and also having worked at a responsability post were I had to deal with the plannings, contracts etc of more than 30 employees and be sure the laws are respected for their well-being, reading that there isn't a law in Japan to control the overtime hours, as well as the daily time range, makes me fall off my chair >< I really admire everyone who has to work like this, ganbare!
Also, obviously, congratulations to Arashi for a well-deserved award for 2016!
Now where is my 2017 single announcement??? I'm dying for new Arashi music here XD
By the way, I really like reading your opinion every week on Ichimen, so don't hesitate to post it. News Zero calls for your opinion (unlike a VSA or something where it's just flail XD), so don't hesitate to post it :)
Thanks as always to "Arashi English translation" for letting me use her work, please support her by visiting her Facebook page.
