My stance on the Livejournal/Dreamwidth issue

Hi everyone!

So as you may know, a lot of people are closing their LJ to move to Dreamwidth regarding the new TOS.
As for me, I don't intend to close my LJ at all, I will still post here. I was backing up at Dreamwidth since some months now as a precaution, but today I finally updated everything with the same layout, so if you prefer to follow me there for whatever reason, please do so here:


I repeat, I will crosspost on both plateforms, so if you don't want to go to dreamwidth, I'll still post here. This is just a precaution. (I still need to update every LJ links in every entries, this will take forever *sob*)

Basically, I prefer it here, but i the end, I'll just go wherever the fandom will go, that means, wherever the main Arashi communities will go.
My main, and only issue with all of this is if the old and unmaintained communities are purged, that would be catastrophic! I don't want to relive another Megaupload tragedy! I'm working on a tutorial to help people (especially new fans) to get around finding subs and raws without help (while respecting the rules, duh!), because it might be time for you to download what you postponned for so long :/

Anyway, those waiting for News Zero, it will be released on Saturday or Monday, I had great difficulties getting the raw this week, sorry D:
Sho - Facepalm

Video compilation of ALL of Sho's Cliff Climb fail! :D

Here is a video compiling ALL the Sho!fail during cliff climb since the beginning of VS Arashi (until March 2017)!

It was super fun to work on it! Also, it would have been impossible (or incredibly time consuming!) without nachosnpaprika's awesome VS Arashi in depth Episode guide!

Now sit back and relax because you're in for 1 hour and 20 minutes of hillariousity! (if you're depressed right now, I prescribe to watch this video right away :D)
Also, I can't deny there's a lot of Sho's nice butt close ups ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)








You can also download the HQ version on Mega!

[subs] NEWS ZERO - Sho's cuts (Avalanche report) (2017.03.27)

Hello everyone!

This week, Ichimen was cancelled due to an avalanche occuring the same day, so Sho-san is covering explanations on the circumstances as well as security issues with mountaineering. Thus the script was not available on NTV's website, and Arashi English Translation translated everything by ear (that's why, those who are following her, you may have not seen her post her usual weekly Ichimen translation). So pleae don't forget to thank her for her hard work :) (mountaineering vocabulary is not something you use everyday orz)
The video also includes a comment by Sho-san about his memories of his collaboration with the Tohoku students during Blast in Miyagi and his answer to Ralph-san's question (which was super cute, thank you Ralph-san!)

What an adorable pout (づ ̄ ³ ̄)づ

If any of Sho-san's safety recommendations can be of any use to at least one person, then I'll be glad to have subbed this News Zero. All my thoughts with the families of the victims.

We love reading your comments, because News Zero is a show calling for your opinion, so don't hesitate :)

[subs] NEWS ZERO - Ichimen (Summons of Sworn Witness) + Zero Culture (Laplace's witch) (2017.03.20)

Hello everyone!

Here is this week's ichimen about Summons of Sworn Witness regarding the Moritomo Gakuen land-sale scandal. As the ichimen doesn't cover the scandal details, and as, if you've not been following this story, you might be a little lost viewing it, we've added a summary at the beginning to explain what all the fuss is about. Here are the News articles we used if you want to read more about it: NHK News (in Japanese), Asahi Shimbun, Asahi Shimbun, The New York Times.
We also obviously added the Zero Culture covering Sho-san's new movie "Laplace's witch" as well as his comment about it :3

Update : Arashi English Translation made a summary of the testimony that took place this morning, you can read it here :)

I vividly invite you to read a bit more about Moritomo Gakuen to make your own opinion about this whole affair as it's quite complex (in my case, this school is freaking creepy D:) Also I didn't know if I should have laughed or cried at the guy who said he's "not able to sign it", ridiculous =_= (there's corruption in every country indeed... we're getting this kind of news everyday here in France since the Presidential election is in a month only, it's like everyone is being put down XD /end of rant)
Also who's excited for Sho's new movie? BECAUSE I AM ASFLKJDSFMJSFLJSF!!!!

[subs] NEWS ZERO - Ichimen (Saudi Arabia’s King visit to Japan) (2017.03.13)

Hello everyone!

Here is this week's ichimen about Saudi Arabi's King visit to Japan.
Now I want you all to give the translator a round of applause! Because the subject was quite difficult to translate as it's mainly political, and a sensitive subject currently, and we both read maaaaaaaaaaaaany articles online on the subject.
You will find some articles we did some research on at the end of this post if you're interested, mainly regarding Trump's relationship with Russia, Saudi Arabia and Syria as it was brought up by Murao-san.
Many thanks to @Hodosakurai for helping us too :)

Honestly, we did sooooo much research for this Ichimen, we felt like we were working for News Zero (quite a nice feeling actually XD Oh Sho-san, what you'll make us do!). It made us appreciate Murao-san knowledge further more too, because we had to search really far to understand where his comment was coming from. Really a knowledgeable man, you can tell he reads A LOT!

[ENG, FR, IND, ITA subs] NEWS ZERO - Tomioka, Fukushima report (2017.03.06)

Hello everyone!

Here is this week's News Zero.
This one is special. As every year since the Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami of 2011, Sakurai-caster, on his own request, goes there on a live report and help the locals. This year is no exception.
Please please please, give a huge thank you to the translator as she really outdid herself! There was no script on NTV webpage for this as it's a live report, and it's more than 15 minutes long, and we worked really hard to deliver this before the 11th as it will be the 6th anniversary of the disaster.
If it is your first time watching our sub, I hope you will appreciate it, this one is indeed quite important to us.
So important, that I felt the need to translate it into French so that even more people can watch it ^^ (coucou les gens, je sais que vous êtes là ;))

[subs] NEWS ZERO - Arashi (Japan GD award) + Ichimen (100-hour Overtime) + Sho cuts (2017.02.27)

Hello everyone!

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 :)

[subs] NEWS ZERO - Ichimen (Premium Friday) + Zero Culture talk (2017.02.20)

Hello everyone!

Here is this week's ichimen about Premium Friday which starts today! We also added the talk during Zero Culture because Sho-chan was super cute once again (do we need a reason to add MORE Sho? XD)

I'm perfectly aware that it might be difficult to implement this Premium Fraidy, but behind the economic impact, this could really help improve on the quality of life (it would force to change the way people work) and people could spend more time with their family. I'm sure it can also have an impact on Japan astronomically low birthrates... if you know what I mean ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Extra thanks to Mitsuyo for pointing out the subject of Zero Culture that I missed <3

As a non-smocker who lives in a country where smoking is banned in every closed public facilities and who has been to Japan, I swear I can't wait for this ban to be adopted. I understand that smoking is already really strict in Tokyo (some streets are banned from smocking, you have to smoke at the designated areas outside the subway), and Japanese people are all in all really clean about it (they carry pocket ashtray a lot!), but passive smocking is really an issue, and I really hope they can achieve a better environement for everyone :)
