Hello again! I am here with another drama review:) I’ve finally calmed down after last weekend’s Arashi Blast to finally finish Kagi no Kakatta Heya! On to the review!
“Kagi no Kakatta Heya” or “The Locked Room Murders” follows Kei Enomoto (Satoshi Ohno), an employee at a security company, Junko Aoto (Erika Toda), a newbie lawyer, and Gou Serizawa (Koichi Sato), an attorney and Aoto’s boss at the firm. These three characters encounter various murders that have occurred in locked rooms. Led by Enomoto, the three solve these unusual cases that would typically look like suicide victims or accidents. For a more detailed summary as well as a full cast list, click here.
Wow, I’ve gotten a lot of followers after posting so much Arashi and writing up the concert report XD Thank you!!!
For a bit of a refresher, in this blog, my original posts are: -Outfits that are inspired by various J-drama characters and Johnny’s groups’ PVs and Album Covers (Mostly Arashi and Kanjani8). If you have a request for an outfit, please feel free to send a message through the ask box:D -J-drama reviews -Concert Reports (if I happen to go to one. I’ve been lucky to go to two Johnny’s artists’ cons in the past year) -Pictures I took in Japan Other than that, there will be reblogs of posts related to Arashi, Kanjani, Japan, and favorite TV shows:)
Thank you so much to my new followers:
Wow! Thank you all so much!!! Mahalo~Arigatou~Thanks!! Yoroshiku ne:)
Hello again! Since “Arashi Blast in Hawaii” was a concert open to general audiences, there have been lots of fan reports and pics/videos (to Johnny’s dismay) floating around the interwebs. I was thinking of not doing a con report because of this. However, I like to look back on my 10sai post, which takes me back to the concert and the memories I had there. So, if I’m not writing this for the fans that couldn’t be here tonight, I’m writing it for myself so I have something to look back on to reminisce about the first time I saw Arashi live in concert. Let’s get started!
Hey guys— obviously it’ll be a lot of our first times going to an Arashi concert. I just wanted to share some extremely important concert etiquette that I found directly on Johnnys-net:
"Recently we’ve noticed some conspicuous cases of fans who show bad manners when cheering…
and PLEASE don’t wear big bows or anything big on top of your head (as well as really high heels), because it makes it hard for people behind you to see.
Do not sing along/talk in a large voice, or don’t sing at all, because the audience is there to listen to Arashi, not you.
DO NOT interrupt the members when they are talking, even calling their name in a large voice. It is important to be polite to the other audiences, but don’t forget the people who are performing; they are people too.
Please turn off your phones, because the signals they release, because they make the ear monitors that the members have on make a really loud sound (the high-pitched sound on microphones)
No matter how much you want it, please do not take anything that is released to the audience in a violent way (even ripping out tapes)
PLEASE!!!! DO NOT LEAVE YOUR TRASH IN THE CONCERT HALLS!!!
These are things that bothered one of my friends when they went to an Arashi concert. Because of the ill-mannered people, the experience that was supposed to be fun just made it a bitter memory.
Because Arashi fans (at least in Japan) are generally seen as ill-mannered, and after going to the concert, she felt that she had to agree.
Having bad concert manners in general make the performers look bad as well, so please follow the basic rules. It should be easy if you just respect the other people in the audience and the performers.
But don’t stress out on the rules so much that you can’t have fun. The whole point of the concert is so that everyone can have a good time, so I’m just asking to help out with the performers and create a good experience for everyone.

Boy band’s bringing show, show’s bringing business
Two concerts at Ko Olina are generating millions by attracting thousands of tourists from Japan
By Allison Schaefers
The boys are back.
Arashi, a five-member Japanese boy band that announced its formation in 1999 while sailing on a yacht off Honolulu, returns to Oahu this weekend to celebrate its 15th anniversary and play its first concert outside of Asia. Their two concerts at Ko Olina Resort in West Oahu on Friday and Saturday are expected to fill nearly every Oahu hotel and pump about $20.7 million into Hawaii’s economy.
Barbara Saito, vice president of Tom Moffatt Productions, said investor costs alone for the event will top $8 million, greatly surpassing the costs to bring legends like Michael Jackson and the Rolling Stones to Hawaii.
"They have spent more money and invested more in the event and built a larger stage and will be bringing more fan club members than any other act that’s been here," Saito said. "This is very much an Arashi-style show with enough different kinds of technology to create a spectacle. The stage is so big that you can see it from Farrington Highway."
Saito said the concerts’ 15,000 nightly attendance (which will be roughly half Japanese and half North American concertgoers) won’t come close to breaking the 36,000 concert attendance record set by Janet Jackson.
"Close to 15,000 fans from Japan are coming to see them perform. When it comes to Japan, it just doesn’t get any bigger than Arashi," she said.
