Ogura Tomoaki's comments on Arashi's hiatus.


Newscaster Ogura Tomoaki commented on the news of idol group Arashi's hiatus at the end of 2020 in the news show ‘Tokudane!’ (Mon-Fri 08:00-09:50), aired on the 28th

According to Ogura, “Yesterday, at around 5pm, I was having soba with my family at a neighbourhood soba place. Then I received a phone call from (Sakurai) Sho-kun. He said, ‘Ogura-san, all the members are here right now and we have something to tell you’.” This was how the news was broken to him before the press conference. “Of course I was surprised. When I heard the news, I felt like my soba was going to come back up,” he explained with a laugh.

After the press conference, he spoke to Sakurai and Ohno Satoshi on the phone. He praised them, saying, “We basically talked about what they spoke about in the press conference. There was only just a little bit of ‘we’re telling you this because you’re Ogu-san’. So I thought it was a great press conference since everyone spoke from their hearts”. Ohno had said, “everything has truly gone so well with the members, our bond is really at its strongest right now”.

Also, regarding the inevitable question of what Ohno’s intentions are after the group enters its hiatus, it was said that “even Ohno-kun himself hasn’t decided yet”. Ohno had said he wanted “to try living freely by himself”, and had apparently been met with, “even if you said you wanted to ‘be free’, it won’t be easy with your current name value, will it?”. To this, Ohno had also responded, “That’s true”, with a wry laugh. To the question of whether he would go out of the country, he had expressed interest, saying, “I guess. Maybe I’ll go overseas”. Recalling the conversation with Ohno, Ogura surmised that “even he can’t see the future. He just has a strong desire to do something”.

This show began in January 1999. Arashi also debuted in the same year, so Ogura says, “Our (Tokudane’s) history and Arashi’s history overlaps”. He had also worked with them on the Nippon TV show ‘Arashi no Shukudai-kun’ which aired from 2006 to 2010.

Recalling those days with them, Ogura said, “They’re about the right age to be my sons, aren’t they? They’re all charming and polite; they’re all good guys and they still keep in touch. Which is why I was all the more like, 'Eh!?'. Whenever you go to the waiting room, they'd definitely all be there together. In one big common room. There aren’t many people who’d wait together in one common room even after 20 years. As long as you went there, you were bound to meet all of them. To think that that we won't have that any more in the future makes me a little sad".

I have triumphed successfully~!

For the past few days, since Monday, I've been engaged in a vicious battle to save my room from the terrors of the reigning dust dragons. A vicious battles that it was! I was tasked with the chore of slaying all dust dragons that were rampaging violently in my room, where they brought utmost chaos to the citizens who dwell in my room...

It was a difficult fight! It took me three long arduous days to emerge victoriously, for when I had slain one, another would quickly take its place. But emerge victoriously that I did!

My trusty steed of a vacuum cleaner remained loyal and fought the foes head on, even when it seemed to be an impossible task. Even when faced with the evil dust bunnies morphing into the ferocious dust dragons, my vacuum cleaner did not stagger in fear.

Unperturbed were both I and my vacuum cleaner, and we ventured forth on our heroic journey to do the impossible. When we were done, covered in dust from the remains of the bunnies and dragons, we were welcomed with songs by the villagers, grateful to be rid of them.

Caution them that I did, for their period of song and peace would not last, for more were likely to come again and return. For the next time, this perilous journey may take longer than three days time.

I got a lot of autographs this year (for both dad and me), so instead of scanning them like I did last year, I just took a photograph of them on my bed which makes it infinitely easier for me NG

Unlike last year, I had no hesitation in attending Comiccon this year. A lot of the people who I worked with were either members from the anime convention, Otakuthon, or they were people with whom I worked together with last yeararrowup

I got to hug a bunch of the celebrities and even took a lot of photos with them. In each and every single one of those photos, I'm a total short Asian, so they hugged me and crouched a bit to accommodate me in the photos hearts

My loot of autographs that I got this year:

I couldn't choose between which of the two Sith's 8x10 photos I liked more for Ray Park, so he signed both of them for me!!

There was another photo of Sean Astin's that I had wanted, but by the time I asked for his autograph, he only had the close up of his character from Lord of the Rings. Manu Bennet was Azog in The Hobbit and he also played in Spartacus, so I got both of them since I couldn't choose which one I wanted ^_^;;

These are definitely my favorite and most cherished autographs that I got this year. I was lucky enough to be able to work with Tahmoh Penikett and Jason Momoa. I had so much difficulty restraining myself from squeeing and fangirling over Jason and was pretty much grinning like a mad insane fangirl when I was with him, but he didn't mind at all heart1

Sadly, by the time I was able to get to George Takei's booth, he no longer had any more of his photos available to sign. I was totally devastated, but he kindly offered to sign my Comiccon badge for me. I got to admit, George has the prettiest handwriting I've ever seen before pencil

Dad's loot of autographs that I got for him this year:

Dad was really happy that I got the full body photo for Ray Park, since he didn't want the close-ups that I got. His reasoning was because he wanted the lightsaber in his autograph~

Dad was really excited that I got Manu Bennet's signature from Arrow and was totally ecstatic about Gillian Anderson's signature from X-Files. He wasn't as excited for Jason's autograph as Drogo, which I totally understand, but the way I see it, I now have two different autographs from Jason as Khal Drogo hearts

I'm not going to post the photos I took with the celebrities at the convention because there are way too many of them ^_^;;

We went to the Nintendo Cross Canada Tour today which was at Marché Central at Future Shop sparkles

We did get to play on the NIntendo Wii U system and played Nintendoland~!!

At the end, we took a bunch of photos and even got dad to dress up. I got my starter Oshawott, Daniel got his starter Tepig, Ethan was saddened they didn't have Snivy, and Eric was happy with Pikachu hearts

Nintendo 0X [[2013.07.28]

In that last photo, Daniel and I had to stand on a stepladder because we managed to convince dad to come in the shot, but Daniel and I were about to fall off right before the photo was taken ^_^;;

3. A skilled farmer sure can produce a lot of produce.
4. The dump was so full it had to refuse refuse.
5. The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert.
6. No time like the present to present the present.
7. A small-mouthed bass was painted on the big bass drum.
8. The white dove dove down into Dover.
9. I spent all of last evening evening out the pile.
10. That poor invalid, his insurance was invalid.
11. The bandage was wound around the wound.
12. They were much too close to the door to close it.
13. That buck sure does some odd things around the does.
