“Smile again, thank you

"People are people You are yourself
When you tried to compare them, you were losing
The strength not to be defeated by yourself
It will break through any wall   At times, it's okay to cry                                                                                  
It's also okay to show your weak points  But don't give up there  You can still do it                                                       
That dream of the future " /Fight song/

 Well if I met them I think I wont be able to speak but this I would really love to tell them...

Nino- I really like your carefree and sarcasticly-funny way of seeing the world or problems. For someone like me, who is always worried even about small things I am really jealous of that.

Ohno- For me you are the most versatile talented artist of 21st century. And no, you are not that ordinary as you think you are. Please accept the fact you are amazing talented person  Ohno-san. Thank you for staying with Arashi.

Jun- Thank you for making amazing concerts. For someone like me who is not able to go to see you live it is great way how to see you perform. Even through PC I can feel like I am there with you and other fans. Only Arashi has this power.

Aiba- I wish I was always so cheerful and optimistic as you are. I wish to be that type of person who brings happiness and is always kind to others. I really adore you for that Aiba-kun.

Sho- I really respect you the most among Arashi. I am always amazed how many things you were able to accomplish. I adore your will power, ambitions and never giving up mind. You are inspiration for many young people.

*18. How will you celebrate the boys Anniversary this year?                  
hmm I still did not think of anything special , but I am sure I will watch cons and maybe rewatch PIKANCHI? but definitely I will spend that day fangirling and listening to Arashi songs...and I will post to tumblr, lj etc XD

yattaaa!! dekitaaaa!! ♥ so Arahi will turn 18 huh? I even dont relized it... I am happy that I did this small challenge. It was fun. I wont tag anybody. If somebody wants do it , douzo :)

Hiiii minnaaa!!! I know, this post might be a little bit different from what I use to write about. But I still decided to post it. I hope it can help some of you who want order from Japan and dont know how, or is afraid to...
Well to be honest I dont buy a lot ( nah no money xD ) I just ordered twice and in this post will talk about both my experiences :)

*I am from Europe (Slovakia), so this post might be useful mostly for European fangirls

So here are the sites I used for ordering and I trust :)

CD JAPAN

So my very first order was from this site http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/ . I think you might hear about it. This site is very very good and lot of people trust it. It have mainly (or only) new/ never used goods.
Firstly you have to create account in it and then it is really easy to shop and also place order :) (you have there also explanation how to order and also about shipping etc. ) You can choose from various shipping methods which is most suitable for you. The shipping has different price and time of delivery. They will contact you about order via your mail, so dont worry :) (and you can also contact them)

My experience with CD JAPAN

My order from this site Toma Ikuta Photobook- Endless fight.
I choosed SAL shipping, which is the cheapest ( yeah poor fangirl here XD ) but the slowest and it does NOT have tracking!!! About the price... book was 1300yen (10 euro) and shipping was 700yen (5 euro) .
I oredered it last year in december and it came after month and week. ( I think it might came sooner, but there was Christmas holidays) After month I was quite worried what happened (because it said after 3 week I will got the book.) But they soon write me e-mail and kindly explained that package is still on way and that is alright :) it made me feel less worried.
Fortunatelly it came in very good state, carefully packed and undamaged. So I am satisfied :) :) :)

Here is package of the book. It really was safely packed :)

And here is the photobook :3
     
FRONT                                                                            BACK

This book was gift for my 17th birthday. It was my 1st Toma stuff and 1st thing from Japan so I was hyper like Nakatsu when it came (you did not want see me during opening package XD)
I have to admit I did not really know which pics will be inside and I think that made me buy it lol XD
I must say I regret nothing XD. Book has pics mainly from Toma's stage plays (which is super duper mega for me), then some pics from dramas promotion (Maou, Majo saiban, VOICE) and some YAMAPI pics and cutes series of chibi Toma and Toma as a student  :)

hereee are some (i know very bad quality ) precious Tomacchi photos :3
   
Yeah I nearly fainted when saw OHMAAA xD                                             ...and yup that's MJ :3


     
my cutieeee                                                and it has many chibi pics :3
(I have scanned the book, If you are interested PM me :), later I might post link )


MANDARAKE

And my next and latest order was from this site http://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/
This internet shop is mainly used by "otakus" and anime figures collector, but also we fangirls can find some idol goods there haha. Well this shop has mainly secondhand products so the products are much more cheaper than in Cd japan. You have description of "damage" about each product (in many cases it is just "only opened" or some little scratch at cover, nothing serious" The more damaged is product the lowest is price )
You have to create again an account. Shopping and ordering is similar than as in Cd japan or as in any other internet shops. Again you can choose from shipping methods and you will got mail about your order. ( I heard there was some cases where people have to wait long until they write them back, but they always write at the end. It is just language barrier.)

My experience with MANDARAKE

I dont know Mandarake very well, because I just used it once and I bough CD (not mags, or penlights or t-shirts...) To be honest I was quite worried if the "secondhand product" will work. But after I asked my nice arashian friends who use Mandarake, they reassurd me it will and it is trustworthy shop.They said everything what they ordered was fine.
I have to admit that I find the shop more  "confusing" than Cd japan. Like you have same products but from various sellers (Mandarake is one big shop which consists of some small ones shops hehe ) and it has different prices and also informations can be a little bit different. So you have to find product you want, to check if it has good quality+ find the best price :P so you have to be more skilled in online shopping I would say.

This time I had dilemma which one cd I will buy ( I wanted LOVE or FUKKATSU LOVE cd ) but finally I realised Arashi PV with Ikuta in it... this wont repeat ( oh how I wish yes XD ) so yeah I bought FUKKATSU LOVE LE (limited edition)

Again I choosed SAL shipping (my parents wont allow me to pay more for shipping ) but I could track it (Mandarake has this option ). I ordered it on 14th november this year and it came on 9th december (so today xD) Price of the CD was 1200 yen (9 euro) and shipping 680 yen (5 euro).
Everything went smooth and my CD was delivered safe and undamaged :)
 

 


Both CD and DVD works perfectly, mini photobook is without damage.  Again I am satisfied and I learned I should never been worried about japanese services :3 they are the best haha
                   
FRONT

Kyaa I am still so excited and happyyy!! This is my very first CD and ARSHI CD!!!  And I am so damn pleased I choosed FUKKATSU LOVE!
This whole Toma-was-allowed-to-be-with-Arashi in PV thing make soo excited, overjoyed, and be on 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000% in fangirling mode!!!
This is for me as an Tomarashian legendary moment I will cherish it :3
Sorry for long post (lol again it turned to be longer and more subjective than I wanted :P ) I hope maybe this my ranting can help somebody.
See you next time :)
