Just heard this news from Zdorama and it's causing quite a stir with Arashi/Matsujun fans. It occurred last week on the June 17th episode of Arashi's popular~* "Mannequin Five" corner which airs as part of "Himitsu No Arashi Chan." Morning Musume's Sayumin appeared as one of the five special guests whose job is to critique the varying fashion~* of Arashi members where there's always a theme for each episode and for the "Mannequin" part of the title it's really cute♥ as each member strikes a mannequin~like pose after choosing their wardrobe and then stands as still as possible while the guests browse their choices and each guest is asked later to make a "purchase" as in choosing which member's fashion they liked the best (making a "purchase") until ultimately one member is left standing as the bottom XD! This episode features a few extra "mannequin" guys along with Arashi♥!…..and I always love the funny snide remarks made as each chosen "mannequin" exits happily~* then knowing they won't be victims of the bottom always cracks me up (^q^)!!
This corner is sooooo much fun to watch and one of my most favorites♥ that Zdorama has introduced me to!…and in the past it's always the most candid and often times insightful commentary from the guests which makes you giggle~* only then to have an even much more amusing conversation between the members of Arashi as they try to revamp their wardrobes in between guest visits and comments all the while trying to avoid becoming the dreaded bottom of the day's fashion :P! The mood has always been light and playful with fun jabs being thrown every which way and sometimes in the most unexpected lights～＾ ＾！！
However some remarks made by Sayu on last week's episode have sparked an uproar of anger amongst Matsujun fans so much that it's been reported that Sayu's blog received in excess of 5000 comments after the airing where fans vented their distaste and heavy anger often making very much personal and hurtful comments towards her. For anyone long familiar with Sayu's personality she's been known in the past to sometimes come across as a bit sharp with her words but ultimately much of it stems from her "screen personality" or rather somewhat of her niche when it comes to her cutely playing off of her well known narcissist~flavored humor. As you'll see in the clip, some of Sayu's remarks towards Matsujun in particular included calling him flamboyant, calling his fashion sense horrible and she also said something a bit odd about his face. But while fan reaction has been most harsh towards Sayu, was Matsujun really even upset?? as it appears that he takes it all with a bit of humor laughing much of it off throughout the clip and even bringing up an earlier comment made by Sayu before the first break where he says that "his face has nothing to do with his fashion…"…(^q^)! Matsujun has always had such a fun and comical side to him as well so I'm thinking that he really wasn't bothered at all perhaps? And now I'm most torn between how to feel about this….I mean just knowing Sayu's comic personality and that dynamic of sometimes sharpness she plays with and also seeing how Matsujun responded with his own bit of humor here leaves me wondering….??? and as a fan of both groups in Arashi♥ and Momusu♥ it strikes an even deeper worry and sadness in me =(.
You can watch the clip here @ Kiiroi Namida's Vox and decide if the backlash towards Sayu is warranted or perhaps too harsh? And by the way, Matsujun's♥ looking most gorgeous hereヽ(。´▽`。)ノ。。！！！。。 so much that you also may be tempted to kiss your computer screen just as one of the guests wanted to kiss him while he was in mannequin~mode (*´艸`)！！
