More info about Fuku Arashi programs


It was previously announced that Arashi would be collaborating with Fuji TV for their Fuku Arashi campaign. Some programs were announced as part of this campaign (such as Kotatsu DE Arashi) but few-to-no details were given.

Recently the Fuku Arashi campaign site launched giving more details about their various shows.

Kotatsu DE Arashi will air on Jan 3 from 13:00-14:30. Celebrating 10 years of Arashi programming on Fuji TV, the show will have Arashi sitting under kotatsu looking at a chronology of events from their debut to present, choosing from Karuta containing keywords from past episodes, and talking about nostalgic videos from their past, among other things.

The set will not only include the chronological table but nostalgic photos, costumes and items they used at past locations shoots. For Arashi fans it will be a 90 minutes full of laughter and tears. Their relaxed talk as they sit reversed under the kotatsu is not to be missed!

Their other planned program, a late-night show to air from December 27-January 2 will only be 5 mins long (24:55-25:00) and will feature talk segments and secret clips from their upcoming shows (there will be no episode on December 31).

Things to look forward to include them looking back at well-known scenes from VS Arashi and introducing the scaled-up versions of their current games which are planned for the VS Arashi Spring special; an introduction to Ohno's spring special drama 『Mou Yuukai Nante Shinai』and Matsumoto Jun's 『Lucky Seven』drama, as well as them dropping in on the set locations; and much much more!

Sound Equipment Failure Reveals Japanese Boy Band’s (Arashi) Atrocious Singing


A few days ago, Fuji TV aired a 2011 music special that included live performances of some of the year’s most popular songs. When boy band Arashi took the stage, there was some kind of technical trouble. Instead of the CD-like quality of the other groups’ performances, audiences were given a taste of some raw audio.



sloppy machine translation of a J-Cast article about the incident:
Arashi singing performance of 2011 FNS song gest is topical as too bad, this has theory that is sound trouble. Fuji TV twitter erupted by Arashi fans.[from beginning, no voice, singing voice come to dissonance> Arashi performed Labyrinth Love Song with violinist, Taro Hakase, Emiri Miyamoto-san. this came to bad. from start no voice at all, and pitch was not stable. and chorus part also brink of collapse, from start to end singing voice come to dissonance. it seemed members embarrassed too. Kazunari Ninomiya-san who start sing begging part makes embarrassed face. Sho Sakurai-san also makes bitter smile.
Arashi fans have denied that the incident reflects the actual singing ability of the group.
Some internet conspiracy theorists have pointed out the lack of technical trouble during K-pop performances as proof of Fuji TV’s devious plot to promote Korean culture. They believe that Fuji TV intentionally screwed up Arashi’s microphones, while allowing the Korean artists to lip sync…
