soybean: Hot Chocolate ♥! (Hot chocolate)
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.

I'm counting the days until Beautiful World would be release. I'm excited about it because 1) It's Arashi and 2) I heard it was one of the best concerts ever. I love love the album, Beautiful World because the music appealed to me. Despite it was raining and all, it was still colorful and in a way, looked fun. For the past few days, I've been rewatching the Arashi concerts and I was like alghlshgs I wish I was there... maybe one day? Who knows? However, I'm so looking forward to watching the dvd because I did buy the limited edition one. However, I'm quite disappointed that Waku Waku would be part of this dvd and I understand that it's different... But, I was more or less hoping for at least one of the dome concerts. *____* Because everything they do at the National Stadium is different at the Domes. Plus... from all the news clips about the Waku Waku... I was expecting more. I know they were trying to become teachers and they did a wonderful job. But, it really just seemed boring and no worth my kind of money. I understand it's for a good cause and I'm happy to contribute to it. I was hoping for more. But... Waku Waku was not something that I intend to pay money for. Sorry Arashi. :/

Ohno's drama, Kagi no Kakatta Heya... so far, so good. However, the plotline is getting a bit duller only because it's the same thing over and over again. The actors and actresses are well rounded and act quite well within the characters. There is nothing that distinguishes them different from their particular character. I am keeping up with the episodes, but I'm kind of hoping for more. However, it's getting there and I'm quite curious about Ohno's character since there's a secret of him doing criminal activities. Hehehe~ But, yes! I cannot wait. I haven't watched Aiba's drama yet because well... I'm not interest in it at all. I'll probably watch sometime in the future... Just not now. Plus, it is not subbed. I also listened to Face Down! YESSSSS. I love love love this song and though, I hate the PV. I love the song. I wish there was actually more dancing that goes with it. Lovely! :)

Pottermore is finally out!  And what's so surprising... well, I got sorted into Gryffindor and I find that surprising. I was thinking that I would be sorted into Ravenclaw or Slytherin because of all the answers I've picked, I thought I would be placed into either of those houses. However, it surprised me that I got sorted into Gryffindor. That was not so bad. Only Book One is out on Pottermore and I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed with Pottermore because I had really high expectations out of it. I was thinking it would be a bit more interactive... But, it wasn't. However, it's still enjoyable to explore around. But, it was not what I was actually looking forward to. If anyone wants to add me, my username is AvisDawn12470. I'm still learning how to duel and how to make potions. It took me forever in attempting to find the wand and also to quickly type or click on those words for dueling and spells.

What else was there? Well, I also watched Ohno's new drama. I have to say, I like the first episode and I was expecting the camera to be more focus on Ohno because after all, he's the lock otaku or whatever and the drama is based on locked doors. Anyway, I was expecting more Ohno-focused. But, it's more of... Erika's focused? The drama is not so bad. It really got the ball rolling and it is interesting. I am just wanting for the translation out of this drama. And Ohno acts superb. :) Seriously! :D The opening song and also the previews of the MV was awesome. I was disappointed with the MV despite how awesome the song was... but, I was expecting dance moves instead of them sitting in chairs or against the wall. I believe the concept was suppose to be "mysterious." But, really... :X Dance and no more auto-tune anymore guys! I mean, the song is great. But, I prefer listening to their voices... not technology's. However, Face Down is great. They are releasing the same day as NMB48. My thougths about the competition? Who cares... I don't really care if they got first, second, tenth, etc... It would not make them lose anything in either case. I mean, Arashi has gotten second place before and I believe, they should understand that hey... they can't be popular all the time. The bubble will pop and boom. Ninomiya once stated that the popularity would be over and Tachi was more like, "Don't worry about it." However, as all artists, popularity will pop and fade. Just look at the Backstreet Boys and other artists before hand. I did not get to watch Aiba's new drama. However... from all the previews I've seen, I'm not looking forward to it because I can't seem to find Aiba as an actor. I see him as the happy-go-lucky guy that is a miracle worker during variety shows and do all these crazy things. I don't see him as a serious actor at all. I know he's doing his best... but, I can't seem to get over his variety shows and into the acting gig. I can't really distinguish the two at all. However, I will try to watch his drama despite my lack of interest in it. He might do well and might do horrible. I just hope it would be okay.

Is it just me? But is... Running Man getting a little bit boring? I was so excited for the Alice and Wonderland concept. But, they totally blew it off. It was not what I was expecting and I was hoping for more of a Role Play of the characters. However, they did keep with some of the concepts... It's just disappointing because I expected so much. I mean, it's nice that BoA and the other fashion designer showed up. But, yeah.. I think Running Man needs to find other ideas and stick with it throughly or try to make it as fun as possible. I love the chasing and spy games. Wished it was back though! I was also listening to a few songs lately... I haven't been into the Korean music in like forever. But, I managed to listen to B.A.P, N'UEST, 4Minute, and B14a. First off, these groups are super young and I have a lot to say about their music, voices and songs. First up, B.A.P, I have to say...their debut song, Warrior is pretty good. The music is good and not as intense as I hoped it to be.. But, still good. :) Though,  I don't understand the alien concept. Next, N'UEST... I actually like the song Face a lot because it deals with bullying and all. The music could have been composed better. But, it's still good. 4Minute's Volume Up... not so much. Their vampire concept was a good idea, but the whole thing.. well, it was okay. Not as great and could have been better while B14a, Baby I'm sorry was a good song. Though... too auto-tune. However... overall, I do like their songs... They had each pros and cons.

Well... I'm off! :)

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!
