~ARASHI 「Troublemaker」 First 2X winner of The Maochan♥ award~ ー(* ̄O ̄)ノ


With a friend here being turned onto ARASHI recently I thought it a perfect time to reminisce with a few older postings from over the past few years here @ WP ^^.






わぁーいo(*´∀`)o゛。。this is already Arashi’s♥ 29th single release~*!!!

And like all Johnny’s productions it’s chock~* full of the very best in song writing ♪~♪ and visual stimulation galore~♥ ………(゜∀゜)………。”Troublemaker” which also serves as the theme song for Shokun’s drama “Tokujo Kabachi!!’ comes complete with its LE including the title track’s pv~♥ & a 12 page booklet while the RE adds an extra bonus track in “Mou ippo” along with karaoke tracks for all three songs~ ^ ^。The LE’s DVD is approximately 25 minutes in length and here we’re also treated to an extensive 20 minute pv “making of”..very sweet~!

Just below are the LE’s booklet scans~* ^ ^。

ARASHI “Troublemaker” (pv)

While the track itself is most genki~* with very much uplifting compliments from an alluring string arrangement which will tempt you to dance っo(*´∀`)o!。。、”Troublemaker” presents one of the coolest~* pvs♥ yet and here the production’s creativity was at an all time high~* and while all Johnny’s music videos have a special edge to them…here we get some most delicious~* stop motion style anime, no I meant stop motion in real life…(^q^)! and while watching the making of you really get a sense of just how time consuming of an effort this was for everyone and amazing what visuals can come out of blue screens while utilizing vibrant and memorable props~* throughout as tables become filled with living convoys of the inanimate brought to life~*, fruits are cut down to size in amusing increments, member’s expressions are locked into place as thingies grown and shrink at alarming rates XD~! And there’s always a most welcome Shokun~♥ break out as some classic? or otherwise dance poses and moves~* (。ーωー。)♥♥♥。 He’s always so fun to watch~* as he’s so so animated, full of personality and well….*sexy~*~♥!!!! And while a lot of the scenery and props are real there is a bit of acting going on here as at many times ARASHI is asked to show expressions to things which aren’t there as only empty tables and surroundings exist~. All in all it’s very wonderfully surreal~* as umbrellas become clouds….a platform a boat!

Generally though it’s mostly the non~stop goofing around which attracts me so much to this pv♥….and here girls can also enjoy quite a different form of *multiples* ヽ(。´▽`。)ノ。。!!as it surely will require *multiple~* viewings to capture them all~♥ ( ̄▽ ̄)~*!。。。so it’s surely going to be rewarded the most coveted (。ーωー。) um well happy ~Maochan♥ music seal of approval~ \(^o^)/☆!!!!


“Yurase, ima wo” for all of its heavenly~* driven rhythms….that so sweet♥ emotional chorus…….and a bridge to die for!!! receives this single’s second ~Maochan♥ music seal of approval~ \(^o^)/☆!!!!

Songs like these are so much a reason why I love the releases~* of Tackey & Tsubasa (where have you gone? (;´□`)!!)、 SMAP, some of Kinki Kids..V6..TOKIO and lots and lots of ARASHI♥♥♥~!

“Yurase, ima wo”

And lastly the extra track which accompanies the RE↓↓↓….plus a few sights from the LE’s “making of”, enjoy Σ( ̄◇ ̄*)!!!
