Arashi blasts NTV’s “Best Artist 2010″ with triple-song performance

No year-end show could ever feel complete these days without the appearance of Arashi. When the boys first stepped on the NTV “Best Artist 2010” stage, the screams from fans was practically deafening.

Delivering a triple-treat performance with “Believe“, “Happiness“, and “Monster“, Arashi was definitely one of the top three highlights of the night.

Aiba Masaki’s upcoming drama “Bartender” to air a special pre-show!

As we reported earlier, Arashi’s Aiba Masaki is headlining a new drama based off a popular comic series called, “Bartender“. Although it will start broadcasting on February 4th, it’s been recently revealed that a special pre-show will air on January 14th.

The pre-show, which is not a prequel to the drama, merely follows Aiba as he tries to learn more about how to enjoy alcohol from various “Alcohol masters” in the entertainment industry. One of the “Alcohol masters” will be Shimura Ken, who is personally close to Aiba (they co-starred together in “Tensai! Shimura Doubutsuen“); Ken will teach Aiba the mature way of enjoying alcohol.

The pre-show will also closely report on Aiba during the shoot, as well as his training on being a bartender.

Aiba’s cast members have also been announced. Joining him are Kanjiya Shihori as the heroine, Arakawa Yoshiyoshi and Mitsuishi Ken as his co-workers, and Kaneko Nobuaki will play as his rival. Tsugawa Masahiko has also been slotted to play the heroine’s grandfather.

Sounds like a pre-show that can’t be missed!

Aiba Masaki to guest on final episode of Ninomiya’s “Freeter, Ie wo Kau”

Arashi’s Aiba Masaki will make a guest appearance on the last episode of “Freeter, Ie wo kau“, scheduled for broadcast December 21st.

The drama stars fellow Arashi groupmate Ninomiya Kazunari, and indeed, many fans were expecting Aiba to cameo in the final episode. The pop group has carried on a tradition in which a member with an upcoming drama will guest-star on the last episode of their bandmate’s sitcom.
Aiba will play the role as the successor of ‘Manami’ (Karina) at ‘Seiji’ (Ninomiya)’s workplace. Afterwards, it will be his turn to flex his acting skills in the upcoming drama, “Bartender“!
