welcome to my world full of japan. arashi. kinbaku. and kanjani. よろしく♡

okay so I just have to share this with the arashi world.

today I went to the east asian library at my uni campus, because I had to research a bit for one of my papers and well, I got a little distracted in between and started to look for books that focus on the topic of “idols in japan”. and I found.. arashi-related stuff. fandom stuff. fangirl stuff. in a scientific research book.

first I was just flicking through it, finding (among other things) those two pictures

I was like.. oh god how awesome is that? yay! and then I digged a bit deeper.. and found stuff like “member-ai” and “fanservice”…

image

at that time I was really surprised to read stuff like that.. I mean it’s nothing special, but it’s just totally unusual to find that in a scientific book. xD and even one certain ship served as an example.

image

I mean.. THEY EVEN QUOTED OHMIYA!! I was sitting in the tram while I was reading everything.. and I just really didn’t know how to react… on the inside I was like.. “OKAY WHERE IS THE SAKURAIBA SECTION” haha

and there was also this sentence that I cracked up about:

"Fans can, if they wish, frame the petite, quiet Ohno as a sexually aggressive seme or muscular and "mature" Sakurai as a willing uke."

I really wanted to just break out into laughter when I read this.. I never thought that research can be that freaking…. interesting. Let’s just call it interesting haha

    I’d sure like to know this researcher… To go and analyze Arashi for their research, this person has to be dedicated.

    This reminds me of the time I was researching boy bands for an essay comparing The Temptations to the Backstreet Boys,...
