Arashi.not.in.regular.mags *cries and dies*
I dreaded this day coming ~ but I thought Kinki's & Coming Century would go first. (T.T)
Anyways, why did they have to go now? Not like there's a new group to take up the pages...Just scrap the individual HSJ photoshops ~ push them into group photoshoots.
I think it's such a bad step always, like with SMAPPIES. Right when they're at the height of popularity they get scrapped from JE mags, JE countdown concerts...basically JE. And they get crappy TV show formats. Srsly. HnA & AnS - pretty much the same. Not why I fell in love with Arashi. wtf?! What happened to actually filming stuff outside, with the focus on real people...what happened with Arashi being 'real people'...since when did they become just celebs chatting to other celebs?! Sorry, I don't care if Arashi get more 'honorable' assignments or in what would be Morning Musume terms 'graduating' or even 'moving up' ~ it's distancing them from their fans, which, tbh, is the worst thing a so-called 'idol' can do. When in need, I blame Johnny! =P
Sorry about the rant, just had to let the cat out of the bag. (^-^')
Really though, 6 years I've dedicated to my boys...don't want to see them deteriorate like this...
