O P E N I N G ( 0 0 : 3 1 )
▪ Artist You Want to Kiss [ 1 ]
▪ Um, Peyton's stuck doing the episode alone. Uh-oh. XD
▪ lol Peyton tries to ton down the Arashi hate! XD No surprise that all of Arashi is on the list.
▪ But very much surprise to Joshima from TOKIO on the list. At number three no less.
▪ And what the shit. Kimura Takuya at twenty-six? WHAT IS THAT.
N E W S ( 0 7 : 1 5 )
▪ Akasaka Akira arrested for drugs again [ 1 ▪ 2 ▪ 3 ]
▪ ruh-roh. he may have to serve actual jail time since it's his second arrest. >.<
▪ Wise words from Peyton: "New year. Fresh year. You guys, come on. Quit the habit."
▪ Matchy's -MOTTO- single, Dec. 13 [ 1 ]
▪ "He's like going on his 30th anniversary of being a JE and his sound is still like when he debuted."
▪ Not that that's a bad thing, because MOTTO is totally catchy. As Peyton demonstrates as she sings the chorus. lol
▪ Kimura's Space Battleship Yamato trailer [ 1 ]
▪ lol "It's like Star Trek for Japan, I feel like."
▪ ...And Peyton's so not shallow. "Wow, he's so hot." Guess who!
▪ Nagase admits relationship with Aibu Saki [ 1 ]
▪ Peyton was bummed about Nagase Tomoya/Hamasaki Ayumi breakup. Which she mentions again.
▪ "Yay, Nagase. Has girl."
▪ Tokudane, Dec. 29 [ 1 ▪ 2 ]
▪ LOL PEYTON BLANKS ON OGURA-SAN'S NAME. (AKA the guy who hosts Arashi no Shukudai-kun with them!)
▪ oh man, Arashi had to rank themselves again--this time, who's the sexiest? Who has the biggest gap between real personality and image?
▪ Then they ask Ogura-san "who does he like the most in Arashi?" lol Which becomes manipulated to who hangs out with Ogura-san more!
▪ GIFT takes top three on Oricon [ 1 ▪ 2 ▪ 3 ]
▪ Oh hay, our question is answered. The three are considered as separate entities!
▪ First time an artist takes the top three! Yay, Kanjani8!!! ♥
▪ Nakayama Yuma to guest 1st ep. of Hidarime Tantei Eye [ 1 ▪ 2 ]
▪ lol We find out about Nakayama Yuma's appearance not through official word but through commercials/news clips.
▪ Awww, Nakayama/Yamada seem to have a good relationship. To the point that they have matching mullets!
▪ TOKIO Dream Challenge [ 1 ▪ 2 ]
▪ SO COOL~~~~
▪ lol they have to drag Nagase into it
kicking and screaming. no not really.
▪ Once again, Hina gets the short end of the stick and Taichi just calls him to ask him to rejoin their team. XD
▪ SPOILER WARNING: sadly, the Johnny's team lost again. 1-0. But that's not to say that the Johnny's team didn't work really, really hard.
▪ Even the Nadeshiko team was like, "we'd love to have you guys try to beat us again!" (never mind the slight insult there. lol)
▪ Kohaku [ 1 ▪ 2 ▪ 3 ▪ 4 ▪ 5 ▪ 6 ▪ 7 ▪ 8 ]
▪ "I felt like the medley itself was a really good introduction to Arashi."
▪ ...NYC Boys had like strap-on lights around their waist or crotches or somewhere there.... Wow.
▪ In Peyton's opinion, in comparison, NYC Boys' performance pwned Arashi's performance!
▪ "But I was surprised, even Goro pulled it off!"
▪ lol It was all good until SMAP started singing. XD
▪ Johnny's Countdown 2009-2010 [ 1 ▪ 2 ▪ 3 ▪ 4 ▪ 5 ▪ 6 ▪ 7 ▪ 8 ▪ 9 ▪ 10 ▪ 11 ]
▪ Peyton feels like Countdown was better last year! ...However, she was actually watching it on television in Japan. (Her opinion should not count. XD Kidding kidding~)
▪ Favorite part! SONGS ROTATING WITHIN THE GROUPS!! :D
▪ Arashi performed Sukiyanen, Osaka, WITH EVEN THE SUN MICS. SO CUTE. ♥
▪ Reverse, Kanjani8 performed One Love! Such a shoddy job, but it's lovingly. So lol especially with Arashi watching on and K8 in their Eito Rangers outfits!
▪ OMGOMGOMG, TAKKI AND TSUBASA PERFORMED TOGETHER. It was fabulous seeing them together again! ♥
▪ Matchy performed MOTTO and the debuted groups were BACKDANCING for him. Hysterical.
