He is very inteligent, charismatic, good talker and does his work on 210% (and even more). Everytime! Rules are very importnat for him. Words such as „failure“ or „defeat“ are not in his vocabulary. People used to say he was bad-tempered in his teens, but now he has totaly changed.
He is man of many interests, his standards are high and many people feel a bit insecure dealing with him, because of his knowledge and character perfection.
But with his sincere and magnetizing eyes, well manered behavior can also make others feel calm.
The magnifcent eyes match his manly angular face.
Despite his good-looks, he became adored mainly for his hard work. Young people (and his fans) see him as a role model . Even he does work with serious topics in TV as an new caster, his career has started in showbiznis and he is still part of it till this days. Even he has image of hardworking matured top Idol, he can still show us his funny and kawaii side.
Actually this post is to celebrate his 35th birthday!!! Well I wont rant more
(I know you knows who I am talking about ) sooooo my fellow Arashiaaans, LETS GET THE PARTY STARTEEEEED!!!!!!!!!!
„Rebel teen“ – When I came to fandom I thought Sho was bossy and cold. Yup! And then first infos when I googled him were like: hits his fans with an umbrella, shouts at fans, hotblooded and cold to fans... Well I was such baka for certain time I believed the rumors and did not like Sho at all (really :P). Some time has passed, I found more and more infos, saw videos and slowly changed my mind. I realised his „cold“ behavior might be connected with his not so happy childhood, the need to prove his parents and actually EVERYBODY that he CAN be sucessful either in school and in pursuing his dreams as well. Now I know all that bullshit were not true! I adore how he was brave to stand againts his family! It must have been very tough for him to think he „shamed“ and „betrayed“ them...
But with his strong will and very hard work he showed everybody what he can achieve!
In the present he has changed to be more calm and he thinks a lot about what he is saying. (
he just matured I would hehe) . But to be honest sometimes I still miss that old Sho who was not afraid to say maybe bitter words to people who deserved it. The rebel who was not afraid what others think of him. The rebel who was not afraid shock his haters.
Even I miss that rebel in him, I still respect the current Sho and I will respect Sho in the future too!
wild, young, free... sekushii ne? XDYoshimoto-
My very first Sho´s drama! Sure...I am still traumatized (and I think I will be for rest of my life) but I regret nothing I watched it as first. I became to love him more and I was impressed how great he can act!! (yeah I am crazy but it drawn me to him more after Kazoku Game... I though "wow this Sakurai guy is something!!! Creepy weirdo but love him in this role! "XD)
This drama is crazy, very deep, shows problems of society/family and most of the time you will feel confused. Sho NAILED it and he portrayed Yoshimoto frightfully realistic (you might have feeling Sho became Yoshimoto XD ) I won´t exaggerate- this was Sho´s BEST ROLE EVER AND FOREVER!! Just watch it!!
can you handle his stare?
Sho SAKURAP- I have never liked rap. NEVER!!! And till this day I still dont like it. Why?
Because most of the rappers just shame other rappers in their „songs“ and use rude words and sing about drugs, alcohol and another shitty stupid things... This is NOT art nor music for me!!
(ok now all rap lovers gonna kill me :P )
BUT Sakurap is totally different. You can see wise and matured man behind his rap lyrics.He plays with words and shares his intelectual point of wiev about life with his listeners. He also writes his own texts, which makes him 1st in JE! His rap songs can be seductive, romantic, funny and also painfull sometimes.I love his rap is smart, yet not cowardly boring. His rap never fails convey meaningfull message to his fans. And his deep manly voice connected with powerful lyrics is heavenly sound for heart!
Sho in his solo concert...(his dad went there too...It is very memorable for Sho!)
and because SUPERNOVA NEXT TO ZA DOA will never get old XD
(even my non arashian friend love Face down XD)
„newscaster“- He can sing, he can dance, he is an actor, he is national top idol of boy group known world-widely. But this did not satisfy him! He wanted show everybody despite his talent in showbiznis he can do something meaningful and serious. ( but that does not mean he take his idol status for granted! )
He wanted create his „own“ name. So he worked hard and become 1st JE newscaster and also he has the responsibility beeing youngest OG caster on NTV'! It is hard and tiring work but he does it perfectly and eagerly! He interwieeved and met a lot of interesting people (and not just famous people) and visited amazing places. His intrewievs and reportages are refreshing and he always creates friendly atmosphere. Plus it is very motivating to see such young
(and good looking XD ) announcer/newscaster in the world of journalism.Thanks to him more and more young people are interested in serious topics showed in TV and also thinkng of becoming journalist or newscaster. Sho-san you are big inspiration for us young people!
so ladies, will you watch news? Me definitely yes XD (aah miss this fresh look)
Sho as caster in Rio OG 2016
The failer- Despite his smart (and smexy) looks even Sho is very amusing person and can act like totally stupid baka or as 5 y.o. kiddo.Yup even such perfect creature as Sho Sakurai has ehm „not-so-perfect“ moments
(mainly caused by Aiba XD).Well you could see some „Fail Sho“ moments mainly in older Arashi shows or during concert (*sob* I soo miss them T_T) demoo „fail Sho“ still makes appearance time to time even now. Just watch VSA XD
we all know how sucessfull he is in VSA ne? XD and that nagedeta tho
when he finally won in Arashi manequin XD it is gold!! (somebody bring this show baaack T_T onegaai! )
Mr. TABOO- To be honest I didn´t became Sho´s fan for how he looks. ( As I mentioned erlier at first I did not like him at all XD) But now I dont know why, but Sho is the most manly and charismatic amongst Arashi for me( Jun-sama will you forgive me? Pleasee) I wont rant more...Sho in suit is killing monster. And just look at those seductive eyes and that plump lips, and I did not mention his muscles. *calm down girl*
Just google Sho in AnAn...
Unfortunatelly he will be 4ever mr.TABOO for us
God bless the creator of this CM XD yeah we all need to see Sho like this! everytime XD
did I mention his muscles already? XD because FACE DOWN in PV of Sho's kakkoiiness and perfection
dat heavenly looking lipusuuuu :3
Kawaii chipmunk- Sho wont be twice happy to know his arashians are calling him chipmunk. But who can resist his round eyes, that flawless cute cheeks and his smile with that trademark teeth of his ? XD Even manly man like Sho Sakurai can be such cutie.
see? I told ya!
sorry kitty, this Sakurai is more cuticle XD
Piano boy- I will forever remember moment I 1st saw him playing piano. I was surprised he can play it. He was forced to play by Arashi during recording in Training camp. He choosed Hatenai Sora. It was beautiful..The song, Sho, Sho´s manly figure and skilled fingers touching the piano. Whole atmosphere was magical.
The 4 was amazed by his skills but when he finished playing he was upset. Why? Just because of 1 mistake...I thought he played it perfectly.... I dont know why but everytime Sho touches the piano he is like another person.
I also remember his task in 24 hours TV. It was strong and very touching moment. He CRIED! He seriously DID!!! Because of small mistakes he did while playing for children...Till now this whole moment have big influence how I see Sho. I wish he would play on the piano more often. I would love to see him play something during concert.
Sho playing "Hatenai sora" during training camp
and this amazing scene from my beloved "Nazotoki" drama! Sho+suit+piano= PERFECTIO!!!Food addict-
What does Sho love more than Arashi
? FOOD!!! Yeah! The moment he starts
eat,he became adorable little boy and the way he eats is ehm interesting? But very cute and funny XD One of the reason why I watch (
not so interesting lately)
anishi is Sho´s eating parts XD
ya see dat chipmunk cheeks? XD
Sho and food= everlasting rabu desu!!! XD
High educated, well manered, hardworking and talented man! That is our nagedata rapping top idol Sho Skurai. Who wont like to be like him? That is what I admire about Arashi and generaly speaking about jpop. It shows you such great examples of celebrities (not like western ones :P ) I truly admire Sho-chan for how seriously he took his education despite he was busy with Arashi. He was raised to please everybody and to always show perfect result. He was able to become 1st JE idol with university education and showed everybody he can do anything when he is deternined to do it! This determination he also brought to his work as well...The passion he works with, the seriousness and perfection is in everything he does. Only he can finish concert and immediately rush to moderate news .Or right after finishing concert travel to Rio to do report for Olympic games. This hard work and importance of education inspired thousands of fans around the world. But sometimes it is painfull to see a slighty tired Sho in ZERO news (I dont blame him, he is human, but he should really rest more and mind his body) I wish he does not overwork himself so much. But anyhow I am so proud beeing his fan.
ah dear, such fine man you have become :3
Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Sakurai Sho-samaaaa!!! veery veeery late OTANJOUBIIII OMEDETOUUUU!!!♥♥♥
So you have turned 35 heh? Time sure flies… I have been in fandom just for 2 years but I have seen you “grow up”. Not just as a man, but as a personality too… My opinion and feelings towards you rapidly changed… From my 1st impression of arrogant, cold teenage brat (gomeeen :P ) to really hardworking and ambitious young man to well-behaved and kind sempai who does his work with love and such passion. Sho-san, you are BIG INSPIRATION for me (and for lot of young people! ) and motivation to become better and successfull person. I am glad I stayed with Arashi, I am glad I could see your true self, I am glad YOU are my role model! Thank youuu so much 4everything! I hope you had great day full of joy and nice memories
( You did celebrate right! you have to :P!!!) . Please stay our very nagedata chipmunk taboo Sho who teases us with his sakurap, who amuses us with his fails and continue to be Arashi’s mama! That 4 messy dorks need you! :3 And of course REST finally! :P PS: Just make you know (I know you wont read it :P )Sho-kun you DID creat the group whose fans ARE PROUD to be fan of!!! You can be satisfied! You did even more than that!!!
aaah,yattaaa!!! Finally I was able to finish it. I am not satisfied tho... It was the hardest to write about Sho. For that of you who stillis reading it Hontoni arigatou gozaimasuuu!! ☻♥cr. for GIFs to authors! I do NOT own them.
