Your Smile Will Always Be In Our Hearts || Farewell, Miura Haruma (三浦春馬)

It still feels unreal.
It's like a bad dream that we all would want to escape from.
But each day, after the news came out, it is a reality of you not being in this world anymore.

But surely, you were much more in pain.
Just imagining it, it must have been a heavy burden for you that you finally decided to leave.
You were always smiling and always so kind... perhaps, no one ever asked if you're okay.
And if someone did, maybe you didn't want others to feel burdened so you kept it all in.

I wish you can hear our hearts shouting our love and care for you.
May those burdens be replaced with wings, and be free!

In your next life, I pray that you are a happier person.
I pray that your soul would find peace and that you can only take with you all the joyful moments with the people you love.

Your legacy in the entertainment industry will be passed on even to the next generation.
Because there can only be one Miura Haruma.

Our hardworking actor and performer.
We love you and we miss you.

*** It's so hard to write without tearing up. I was outside when I received the news last Saturday so I wasn't able to absorb everything and grieve properly. Majority of the dramas and movies I watched are those with Miura Haruma that's why it's difficult to accept that he's gone. Please pray for his soul too. :'(

▨ It's called "ichiban" for a reason || A Masuda Takahisa Birthday Post ▨

(Note: Lyrics from BTS song "WINGS", felt like it fits this edit LMAO)

I've been brainstorming with myself for 30 minutes thinking of what kind of birthday post will I do this year.
Usually I just plainly make a birthday post, but when I have enough time, I do some longer (like really long) posts such as:
- 27 Reasons to Love Masuda Takahisa (for his birthday in 2013)
- 50 Random Facts about Masuda Takahisa (for his birthday in 2012)
- Massu Picspam (for his birthday in 2009)

Celebrating Massu's birthday in the past felt like growing old with him. Since we only have a one-year age gap, there's that kind of connection when our age meets. I was so dedicated and I thought I can keep it up every year. However, so many things happened - - I got busy with my job, I got distracted with new groups to follow, I added new biases in my list, I stopped my hobbies, I had real-life crushes (yikes!) - - I don't regret but I felt empty. Maybe because it's not Massu. This is why for my first birthday post for him after a long while, I wanna talk about:

▪ His smile is still the best for me
▪ His randomness is my joy
▪ His passion for both music and dancing doesn't change, he puts effort in improving both
▪ His contribution in designing and production of concert is too big, and he does it in the background and acknowledges praises with a smile
▪ He is the only "bias" who is close to my age, the others are either too young or too old pfft
▪ Given that age thingy, I did not take the "bias" for others that seriously
▪ He still makes my heart jump just by seeing his photos
▪ His personality doesn't change, he just matures but he still is that same cutey but serious Massu I fell in love with
▪ I have a strong attachment for his dimples and muscles
▪ I feel a sense of pride whenever I see people talk about his sexiness when it has been existing since his junior days
▪ He's the most loyal fan of NEWS songs
▪ He has an obvious huge love for the group
▪ I'm not usually delusional but at the back of my mind, I still wish to marry him HAHA!
▪ I lovingly talk about him when I'm asked about my favorite artist
▪ I still believe he's the hidden gem of Johnny's
▪ He will achieve more and I believe in that, so I wanna stay as his fan as he slowly reach his peak stardom!
▪ I LOVE HIM ♥♥♥

and that's it!

▨ Starting a New Chapter In Your Story

"It may seem like we’ll lose again, but it’ll be okay,
because the bonds we swore on
will serve as our guide"

Lyrics from 生きろ/ IKIRO by NEWS
Translations by news4p


Making this post after a week of the announcement of Tegoshi's departure is kinda difficult since many things already happened in a span of 7 days. It was a rollercoaster of emotions indeed.

By now, friends (especially on Facebook) would have already seen me joking about the situation. I never really talked properly about my thoughts. Did I already move on? Am I happy with Tegoshi's decision? Am I being inconsiderate of the remaining 3 members?

Having to answer all of that with just a Yes or a No will not be enough and pointless. This is why I decided to make a more organized post. From here I'll be talking about my opinion and feelings in three parts - - Before the Announcement --- After the Announcement --- After the Presscon.

I was inactive for a long time in the NEWS fandom so basically I was out of touch of what's happening in the group. But late last year I started checking on updates and stuff but not really delving in the details. Slowly I updated my pages again (please follow Baby Chanchanchankapaana on Facebook!). Slowly I checked out on some latest videos. Massu was the biggest reason I got back because that man is my bias after all. LMAO So during the quarantine period I was able to catch up at least a little. During that period too, news about Tegoshi breaking the quarantine rule came out. Soon after, it was revealed that he's suspended and won't be participating in the J&A concert. I was heartbroken but hopeful. I kept on praying that he'll collect himself and be back better.

And then came that dreadful day.
I was in a long meeting with our Japanese boss and I don't really check my sns when I'm in the middle of work. By the time I opened my facebook to message my department's team about something, I received a message from yujintegoshi through our groupchat saying "let's have a group hug" followed by some crying emojis. My gut feeling told me it ain't a good news, but I tried to deny it and asked what happened. And yes, that's the announcement that he's no longer a part of Johnny's and NEWS.

Press Conference of Tegoshi: LINK TO VIDEO
Real time translations by @ReiganEventine via Twitter found HERE / HERE / HERE or visit her profile for the rest.

I wasn't expecting a press con to be honest. I wanted to hear his side but my mind was blank and maybe I got used to statements being released by Johnny's thru J-web or an interview. I tuned in to his YT livestream despite my little comprehension for the Japanese language. I watched because I somehow missed him and I really wanted to know how he's been doing. It's rare to see him talk seriously of things that's not about soccer or music so I was curious of what he's been thinking and feeling all these times.
Upon reading the real time translation as linked above, I understood where he's coming from. I read his answers without any prejudice and judgment, but only with understanding of him as a human.

Collapse )

The fandom right now is in a chaos. Divided with different opinion, we all wanted to prove that Tegoshi is this, Tegoshi is that. We can never tell. But NEWS is my home and Tegoshi is a part of that home, he just decided to move to an apartment. (I wanna take it that way). I'm still sad. Sad that I won't get to see NEWS & Tegomass concert with him. Sad because I must listen to their songs with his voice but him not anymore in NEWS. I will be sad everytime I remember this.

Anyway, I decided to continue in supporting both NEWS and Tegoshi just like how I continued to support all ex-members. I will not unfollow people nor block those with opinion different to mine. Instead, I will focus on who's in my circle right now and we will work together to support who we want to support. Same goes to you guys, if you didn't like my position on this matter, feel free to decide what you want to do with our connection. :)

If you've read til here, thank you!

He mentioned that he will open an Instagram account soon.


You left just when I returned...

As a fan of both NEWS and Tegomass, the news of his contract being terminated from Johnny’s really broke my heart. There may be several reasons out there but until now it’s hard to comprehend why and what happened. All my bloggings were all about him and Massu. Of course they’re my ship but more than that, it’s their music that I will truly miss. Moving on will take a long time but for now, good luck NEWS, good luck Tesshi... So yeah, won’t be seeing Tegomass in a concert ever again. 😢

CRAYON SHIN-CHAN MOVIES: Less Mischief, More Life Lessons (and Adventures!)

(from "The Adult Empire Strikes Back" Movie - photo enhancement by me)

I've been wanting to create this post and since it's a weekend and I don't really have work to attend to, I decided to start on it.
Anyway, this is going to be a long post so hopefully you could read til the end, and perhaps start watching the movies. :)

CRAYON SHIN-CHAN (Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshito Usui. It follows the adventures of the five-year-old Shinnosuke "Shin" Nohara and his parents, baby sister, dog, neighbours, and friends and is set in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture of Japan. Thank you Wikipedia.

If you have watched the series you probably had an impression that it's not appropriate for kids given the naughty remarks and mischievous actions of Shin-chan especially towards his mom. Dubbed versions are even worse because the language used are oftentime more rude compared to the original. Apart from the language, there's also the "elephant", underwear and piggy stuff mentioned throughout the series. In our country, the Phlippines, the show was aired back in the early 2000s (voiced by Andrew E., a popular rapper here) and up until now, Filipinos have this thought that Shin-chan is just one naughty series full of antics of a young boy.

Luckily, in 2008 I stumbled upon a Crayon Shin-chan movie that made me watch ALL its MOVIES! It totally changed my view of Crayon Shin-chan, and this is why I'm writing this to somehow change your mind and try to watch them!

I picked some of the movie versions that have left an impact on me after watching. There's a lot of 'em so I cannot really put my review for all.

Movie Pick #1: Crayon Shin-chan: Fierceness That Invites Storm! The Adult Empire Strikes Back
(Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん 嵐を呼ぶ モーレツ!オトナ帝国の逆襲 / Romanji: Kureyon Shinchan: Arashi o Yobu: Mōretsu! Otona Teikoku no Gyakushū)
Release Date: April 2001
At the beginning of the movie, the Nohara family is seen strolling around an amusement park made for adults. This park will make you go back to your childhood hobbies and will make you experience those things again such as wearing Ultraman and Magical Girls costumes. This somehow made Shin-chan's parents so nostalgic. This apparently was just a tactic of a couple who wanted to dominate their town so everyone could go back to "the old days" lifestyle.

Collapse )

Movie Pick #2: Crayon Shin-chan: Fierceness That Invites Storm! Yakiniku Road of Honor
(Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん 嵐を呼ぶ 栄光のヤキニクロード / Romanji: Kureyon Shin-chan: Arashi o Yobu: Eikō no Yakiniku Rōdo, also known as The Glorious Road to Grilled Beef)
Release Date: April 2003
Nohara family has a plan to have a barbeque/yakiniku party but a mysterious guy appeared and had them involved in chaotic situation. They had to fight a gang of uniformed guys who wanted to retrieve something from them (that they don't have any idea about LMAO) They ened up going for an adventure so that they could finally enjoy their yakiniku party.

Collapse )

Movie Pick #3: Crayon Shin-chan: Fierceness That Invites Storm! The Battle of the Warring States
(Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん 嵐を呼ぶ アッパレ!戦国大合戦 / Romanji: Kureyon Shinchan: Arashi o Yobu: Appare! Sengoku Daikassen)
Release Date: April 2002
Shin-chan, for some unknown reasons, traveled back in time during the Sengoku Period or the war period in Japan around 1574. He met and befriended a samurai leader who's in charge of an army of their province. However, Shin-chan thought that he just accidentally joined a shooting of a Sengoku themed movie. (I Lol-ed) The samurai guy has a love interest but they have a kind of Romeo and Juliet conflict in their love story so Shin-chan's presence helped in overcoming their difficulties despite the politics.

Collapse )

Movie Pick #4: Crayon Shin-chan: The Hidden Treasure of the Buri Buri Kingdom
(Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん ブリブリ王国の秘宝 / Romanji: Kureyon Shinchan: Buriburi Ōkoku no Hihō)
Release Date: April 1994
Shin-chan meets his twin who is eventually a prince of a certain Buri Buri Kingdom. They met because Shinnosuke was kidnapped instead of him.

Collapse )

Movie Pick #5: Crayon Shin-chan: Blitzkrieg! Pig's Hoof's Secret Mission
(Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん 電撃!ブタのヒヅメ大作戦 / Romanji: Kureyon Shinchan: Dengeki! Buta no Hizume Daisakusen)
Release Date: April 1998
Shin-chan and his classmates were on a fieldtrip and happily dining inside a floating restaurant when the boat was suddenly taken by some unknown troops. Other passengers were able to escape except for Shinnosuke and his  friends. They were protected by a secret agent named Sexy. Misae and Hiroshi heard about what happened and of course, as how parents would react, they panicked and decided to look and save their son.

Collapse )

Movie Pick #6: Crayon Shin-chan: Super-Dimension! The Storm Called My Bride
(Jp: クレヨンしんちゃん 超時空!嵐を呼ぶオラの花嫁 / Romanji: Kureyon Shinchan: Chōjikū! Arashi o Yobu Ora no Hanayome)
Release Date: April 2010
Shin-chan meets a girl from the future. She asks help from him so he could save his future self. Upon arriving in the "future" world, he met the adult version of his friends. Please watch to see how they look like!

Collapse )


And this concludes this post. The list of movies could be found in THIS Wikipedia entry. There's also a fandom wiki HERE in order to know more about Crayon Shin-chan movie series and characters. Picking only five among the long list of the film is challenging but I'm confident to say you will love them all just like I did.

The latest I've seen are:
- Crayon Shin-chan: Intense Battle! Robo Dad Strikes Back
- Crayon Shin-chan: Invasion!! Alien Shiriri
- Crayon Shin-chan: Fast Asleep! The Great Assault on Dreamy World!
and they're all on Netflix so you may check it out.

Please leave a comment here if ever you've proceeded to watching the movies and let's talk about it!


I'm a person who values every memory I have with whatever things I've encountered or done.
It's kinda traumatizing finding out that majority of journals and communites I follow were purged and if not, are inactive.
Saw a lot of icons, gifs and other graphics already expired and many download links inaccessible.
When I was revamping the comms I'm running, it saddens me to see dead links and logos instead of colorful pages.

THAT IS WHY - - - -

I decided to change into a paid account!
YES! You read that right. Well, the terms did not really mention keeping the legacy of my account but I just wanna be sure! (not that I read everything. If you know please share it to me)
This journal is like a bestfriend to me so no hesitation happened. At least I get to have more space for photos without having to use an imagehosting site, and more user icons!!!! Haven't really maximized the features but I'm satisfied.

Also, I was able to have my customized lj-head:

It's so cute. ♥♥♥♥ I really wanted to match it with my entire journal look. Everything's Sailor Moon-fied????

If I have more free time I plan to edit my old posts that contains broken image links so it could look pretty again. Sometimes I hate that I'm OC.

Anyway, good night for now. Been sleeping late during this period. ;___;
YoonMin Pls

✦ Tumblin' back to Tumblr ✦

This isn't going to be a long post.
Just quickly passing by to say:

You may follow me here: CLICK CLICK CLICK

Still strugglin on which image hosting site I could use for my gifs. Imageshack, Tinypic and Photobucket are totally out of the option. (This is for my lj posting purposes LMAO)

Anyway, let me know if you followed me there so I could follow back! 😉
Not familiar with the peeps on my follow-list after being gone for 6 years! 

⚝ Everything has changed (and no, not that Taylor/Ed song)

^this is me throwing tantrums LMAO kidding

Okay, so I'm slowly slowly trying to catch up with the NEWS fandom. But then I figured while being here in lj in the past few weeks, everyone has moved to twitter and fb for all life and fandom updates, and basically, livejournal has become just a "file download and official updates" source. Perhaps some had changed fandoms, or totally switched to the abovementioned social media sites... uhmm, I was even guilty coz I thought I was the only one who stopped posting here. This really means time changes everything.

I miss it though. I miss those days when we all celebrate and talk about various things by posting and commenting.
Pardon my nostalgic adult self.

By the way, thanks so much to abi_chan and massu74  for the help regarding the comms and links for tracking NEWS past activities. Can't wait to check them out.

(I might still post despite the lack of people to interact here? pfft. xD)
