I finally got my DVD for Arashi's Beautiful World. The package looks great compared to the previous concert DVDS. Seriously... I mean, most of Arashi's packaging looks like bootleg copies or not as amazing as other DVD packages. When I first saw the previews of the DVD covers, I wanted to facepalm myself because the packaging looks horrible. I thought it look odd because there seemed to be something sticking out of the package, but that would probably be the regular edition. I bought myself the limited edition because it included DISC 3, which everyone should know by now, Waka Waka.

Before I get started on this review, I am no means a professional in analyzing or criticizing the concert. I am just giving my opinions. :)Please also note, this review may contain spoilers to the concert. If you are waiting for your DVD to arrive and is highly sensitive to spoilers, please do not click the link "Read more." Thank you.

YES!

Finally!

Beautiful World is going to be release in May. I preordered the Limited Edition and alhgslghlshgs, I'm so happy that it's going to be released. I was hoping it to be released earlier. But... that's not the case and my poor wallet is suffering. Finally!!! I cannot wait for it because it's going to be amazing and just because it's Arashi after all. I'm hyped and I hope I will get it before the 23rd of May. From all the previews I've seen (well... news clips), it looks better than ever before. I cannot wait.

I finished watching Lucky 7 and my rate would be 3 out of 5 stars. The drama was good, but could have been better. And I repeat, this is not a spoiler. I won't ruin anything for anybody since some people are a bit sensitive to spoilers (I'm not sensitive to spoilers because I don't mind reading about it). There were pros and cons to the drama. I'll start with the cons. Some of the plotline seemed to not be as important as the rest of the other episodes. They were like fillers and though, the episodes did deal with mystery and detective work... It was not as intense as the previous episodes. There were some parts of the episodes or other episodes I did not care for and normally... I would skip around. However, I do understand why the writers decided to give relief parts due to the mood and tone of the whole drama. However, the drama was light-hearted and though, the main points were driven across... I expected more out of this drama. I expected it to be more intense. I got light-hearted and passionate. But, it was not as intense as I thought or expected to be. My expectations from the very episode were very high for this drama. It didn't let me down... it just lowered my expectations of the drama. But, there were a lot of pros to this drama. First off, the cast and their relationship. The cast was diverse and very much connected to one another. Not in a sexual sense. But... rather, if a character went missing... there was a void missing and thus, which is why.. it's called Lucky 7. The cast was amazing and I love the cast. Another pro was Matsumoto Jun. I have to say... most people seen Matsumoto Jun as the Hana Yori Dango lead male cast constantly and it's just like any Arashi member, you can't seem to displace him to another role. However, he fitted into this role and I could distinguish him out of that Hana Yori Dango role. WHICH IS A GOOD THING! :D

I'm planning to write a makeup review on Hard Candy. It's not going to be here anytime soon. But, will be! I'll try to post pictures or something whenever I'm reviewing. However, I only got three things from them which were: the jumbo lip pencil, the lip gloss and the tinted lipbalm. I'm still testing out and I'm still looking for organic and natural cosmetics. I know they would be a bit pricey, but I would love to find a cheaper brand which natural and organic products. I hope to find it soon!

T____T I'm overloaded with school and work. I swear, February and March are the worse months ever. It just seems that the professors are plotting together and are like "Hahahaha! Let them be stress out!" I have a couple of midterms next week and thus, I'm a bit overloaded with the amount of things I actually have to do. I have no problem with studying... it's just time. In any case, midterms and papers galore all this month and with applying to jobs leaves me very stress and unhappy. :/ I thought graduating semesters are usually leisure-free or something. X__X Not the case!

I also stated that I would be making a drama-list soon. I'll probably get it by this weekend. :D I know I'll get it soon. :) Just not now... [sigh]

ANYWAY-- Ohno, Aiba, Nino and Sho are all going to be acting in March/April of 2012. I cannot wait for Ohno's drama because obviously, my favorite member is Ohno. The drama seems to be really interesting and when I heard he was going to a mystery-detective drama, I instantly thought about Maou. I was a huge fan of The Devil (Korean drama) because the audience really didn't know who the killer was. However, Maou was totally different from The Devil. The audience actually knew who the killer was and plus, it was Ohno's first drama. And he did so well with his character. :D I'm excited because it's not going to be like Singing Brothers (Uta Onii-san? Not sure about this title because I didn't enjoy the plotline of Singing Brothers or Kaibutsu-Kun. :D

Aiba's drama is also airing in April 2012. Now, I have to say... I ♥ Aiba and all... but, I am NOT a fan of any of his dramas. My Girl and Bartender were more of like "Meh... I'll watch it... but it isn't that great." I think the problem is more of the variety shows. Aiba's image as hyper, miracle boy and filled with variety spaz comes with him everywhere. I couldn't see him as a serious character in both My Girl and Bartender. Yes, there were some humor areas in it, but the dramas were a little bit more serious. However, the drama seems to a mixed of mystery and comedy. Aiba acts really well, no doubt about it... but, he has that image just like Matsumoto Jun has. Matsujun's image would always be associated with Hana Yori Dango. On the other hand, Aiba would be associated with children, Miracle-Boy, variety shows, excitement and all.

Nino's movie, apparently... it's confirmed that he'll be acting as a scientist. I can't really wait because it's quite different from his other roles. His Gantz movies were good and so was the other movie: Ohku (Not sure of the title). I loved him in both of those movies and let's just say... I'm not really into sci-fi all that much. But, the movie was pretty good. :) I'm not sure what is the plotline of this movie but... Nino needs to get back into dramas! I cannot wait for the movie to come out on dvd and at the moment, I'm waiting for Sho's movie to come out. [Shakes fist]

Sho's going to be acting into a special. It'll be interesting. I did watch it all, but :/ I wasn't a huge fan of the manga. I'l still waiting for his movie to come out. The special is going to be from his Mysteries at Dinner and I did like it. I wasn't really into it per se because I was overloaded with school work. But, it was still a good drama and with a decent plot line. Other than that, I don't know what the special would conclude though. :/

And Matsumoto's Lucky 7. I didn't watch episode 5 yet. BUT, the plotline is so good and their acting equaled to awesomesauce in my thoughts. The chemistry between the characters were pretty good and from Matsumoto's last drama, I didn't like the character all that much or the plotline. Maybe because I'll always associate Matsumoto Jun with Hana Yori Dango's romance plotline than anything else. *__*

Arashi's sneak PV was released and alhglshghs SHINY. LOL At first... I thought of "WTF... What's with those clothes? ITS SHINY. AND PURPLE." (I'm not a huge fan of purple) In any case, I cannot wait because the song... I actually like it. It's with a fast beat and gets me going. I ♥ songs like that and just about anything that gets me to do the work I need to do. I cannot wait! ♥!

Other than that... Nothing to talk about. I cannot wait until March/April! :D

Hello! Long time no update (again). But, I'll keep trying to update some shape or form later. Anyway, as the subject states. Layout! Yup... I didn't make it and the credit should be on the profile page. I decided not to make anything because I've been swamped with school and work. So yeah... And pretty much, that does not include that I'm lazy. The profile page, especially the interests are still in the working. It's not hard, it's just... I'm lazy. I'll also make a drama/movie/book list here. Not sure when... but, probably sometime later this week because I'll have to compile my list of what I've watched and would like to watch.

So, I'm currently obssesed with buying makeup. I love mineral products because uh... yeah, haha I don't know why. I was wondering if anyone has tried Everday Minerals? It's so hard to find the color of my foundation because I am always unsure of the color of my foundation. I know that I'm warm. I didn't bring my foundation with me, but I currently use L'oreal Paris and it's okay. I don't use a lot of foundation because I don't really use that much foundation. I'm also thinking about getting the NAKED palette from Urban Decay. The eyeshadows look amazing! *__*

Also, I've been catching up on Masumoto Jun's drama Lucky 7! It's good! I mean, I really didn't like Hana Yori Dango all that much because I did not like storyline of the manga. And I sort of cringed over at Masumoto's acting. But, I've been keeping up to date with this drama. I like it because of the plotline and the opening music is amazing. Of course, it's Arashi and damn, I cannot wait for the single to be released. The song is upbeat and just good. But, I kind of want something slightly darker theme like Truth. However, the song is still good!
I'm currently waiting for Beautiful World to be release. The concert looks amazing from news and all, but yeah. Totally want! ♥! Hurry up JE!

Other than that... I'm sick and currently wishing that I wasn't at work and somewhere else.
