UPDATE 9/10/2017 12:39AM: The survey will close by tomorrow at 1PM Hong Kong/Manila time. ♥

So far, there are 720+ responses!! I'm feeling slightly overwhelmed, but also so touched that you'd all take the time to answer! I don't think we've really had a chance to regroup as a fandom and see how we're doing as a community, so I'm glad I've been getting feedback about the survey opening discussions among fans and getting you all to reflect on your choices :D

Please continue to share it! Yay!


Hi, everyone!

I've been interested in the Arashi fandom community for a while now, having been part of it for the last decade or so. :) I'm interested in learning about the current makeup of the community, so I designed this survey to learn more about all of you! There are no right or wrong answers, it's all about what YOU think and feel about Arashi ♥ This is all just for fun and because I want to practice running data and making correlations! LOL. But I've pretested it, and it's a lot of fun answer!

A few things:

  • All your answers will be kept CONFIDENTIAL and ANONYMOUS. When I report back with the results, I will not give any usernames or e-mail addresses identifying any of the respondents. I will only go back to your answers if you want to be interviewed for Part 2 of this fandom research, which will mostly have open-ended questions. So please answer as honestly as possible!

  • It's all multiple question-type answers so you don't have to write an essay or anything.

  • This should take around 15-30 minutes depending on how set your opinions about Arashi are. But again it's fun to answer :D

  • Please please please send this to your friends who are Arashi fans! Post the link in on Tumblr, share it on Facebook/Twitter, etc. The more data we can gather, the better ^_^

  • Again, please answer everything honestly!

Okay, enough rambling. Please go answer the survey! You can leave a comment here if you have any suggestions or questions about this.

Hi! I know everyone has heard the news of Arashi's new balloting system. I got the FC mail but my Japanese understanding is not enough to fully comprehend the instructions sent to my email.

I was able to read through twitter posts that this coming concert will employ the Digital Ticket via QR Code method for concert tickets.

I am planning to ballot together with my other friends but before that I just wanted to ask some questions to clarify some matters related to the balloting system. I'll be grateful if the questions could be answered because a lot of the friends I know are confused... >_<

1. Is it possible to not ballot up to 3 concert dates?
(ex. I will ballot only 1 concert date)

2. When balloting for more than 1 concert date with more than 1 ticket, can we put different companion names for the different dates or can we only put one set of companion names for all the concert dates you balloted?
(ex. I will ballot tokyo dome dec 24, 25, 26 with 3 tickets. For tokyo dome dec 24, I will put A-san, B-san as my companions. Then for tokyo dome dec 25, I will put C-san and D san as my companions. For tokyo dome dec 26, I will put E-san and F-san as my companions.--> is this possible? or can I only do this--> I will ballot tokyo dome dec 24, 25, 26 with 3 tickets and for all 3 dates, I will only bring A-san and B-san with me)

3. Can I ballot for 2 or 3 different DOME venues?
(ex. I will ballot 1st choice: Tokyo Dome dec 24, Second Choice: Nagoya Dome December, Third Choice: Osaka January 2018)

4. I heard about the scenarios of tickets getting invalidated if balloting for multiple dates. 
I was also told about this scenario: A-san is balloting Tokyo Dome December 24 and wrote B-san for her accompanying. Since A-san wrote B-san as accompanying for Tokyo Dome December 24, B-san is not allowed to ballot for Tokyo Dome December. 

5. If one of your companions that you wrote in your ballot entry is unable to attend the concert venue due to an unforseen accident (hospitalized or unable to fly to Japan etc) can we be able to bring along another companion in replacement of the one who couldn't make it?

6. I read that if bringing a companion, the QR code holder and companion must enter the venue together. In relation to Question #4, If companion is not able to make it, Can the QR code holder still enter the venue without a companion? or can the QR code holder bring someone else in replacement of the previous companion who could not make it?

7. During AYH concert, me and my friend balloted exactly the same dates for Tokyo Dome, however we didn't write each other's names as companions... but, instead, wrote names of other people we know ( such as sister or friend's name). this was to prevent ticket invalidation. Apparently we both won our own ballots and were able to enter the dome venue without even an ID check. This is a method to increase chances of winning number of tickets and number of times to watch a concert.
My question, with this year's new system, is it possible to do the same method that me and my friend did last year in order to avoid getting invalid and enabling ourselves to increase our chances of hitting?

I am sorry if my post feels lengthy with all the scenarios I placed but it was the only way for me to explain.

Thank you for reading and looking forward to what other users know or think.

For anyone interested, I wrote a bit of a review for Shinobi no Kuni, since many fans probably won't be able to see it until much later, but they still might be curious about the movie. It's not one of those reviews where I tell the whole plot of the movie - if you want that, I highly suggest you just go and read read the manga (it's awesome). This review is mostly just me rambling about my thoughts. 

Warning: Spoilers!!!!

I know a much better translation has already been posted by [livejournal.com profile] acidae over at [livejournal.com profile] arashi_on, but I thought I'd share my write-up from the director's Q&A with Nakamura Toshihiro at the Toronto Japanese Film Festival Wednesday night. While I just transcribed (unfortunately, I can't translate), I did hide the questions that contained spoilers, so the main post is spoiler-free for the film.

It's at my DW, here. :)
