NEWS Anniversary Gift (Limited for fans club members)

When I just got home from work, there's this small pink box in my mail box and I couldn't be happier!
From the live event, video to this present, fans really get spoiled by NEWS this September.

The box. It's hard to see the writing because it's glossy, but basically it says thank you for fans that keep supporting NEWS so that they can have their 10th Anniversary, and as anniversary gift, they give this present to all fans club members. And hope for fans to keep supporting NEWS from now on too.

The gift is an original pass card case with NEWS logo.

From the box to the present itself, all is so cute, but I think I'm not gonna use it as I'm afraid it'll get dirty =)
What I wander is, why the color is pink, not white as it's the group color.
I thought there are 4 colors, but after I looked up at twitter, apparently there's only this color.
But after all it's a really lovely gift, especially after a tiring week at work =P
Thank you NEWS (and the staff)! ^_^

I've been lining from 8am and after 3 hours, finally I got to buy this!
It supposed to start at 10am but thank God they started an hour early and the weather wasn't that hot, so it wasn't that tiring than when I lined up in Chichibumiya last July.
As the other goods, this special clock has NEWS logos and also "10" for their anniversary.

Translation: I want to be the one that shines the most

It's my first attempt in translating and I'm not native in both Japanese and English, so I'm sorry if there's any mistake. ^_^
Comments are loved.

I want to be the one that shines the most… Tegoshi Yuya

I have loved soccer since kindergarten and it has become a part of my life now.

I practice in a team with me as the captain and also participate in competition. No matter how busy I am, it is a must for me to play soccer, as the game is fun and I can also meet my friends. It becomes my motivation to work hard on the next day.

Soccer also becomes a drill for my body. Even if there are 2 concerts in one day, I won’t be dragged along by fatigue and my body can recover properly. If compared to soccer, singing while dancing is easy.

Soccer also has made me to become someone that hates to lose like now. After entered Johnny’s Jimusho, in 10 months I made a debut as NEWS, an idol group. That time I was 15 years old and I was considered young within the members. I have no experience and obviously it’s only me that was poor in dancing. It was so annoying for me.

Until then, I was always the leader in anything I do. I was the anchor in relay race, squad leader in a cheering squad, and team leader in outing trip. That’s why, at first, work was so uncomfortable and it can’t be helped that I really hated to go to work.

I hid the fact that I don’t want to lose to other members and I looked for dance teacher to practice. In order to put a difference in singing, I went to karaoke with a voice trainer and sang a song over and over.

To me, members are my comrades, but they are also the best rivals. I want to be the one that shines the most….. It really thanks to soccer for giving me this kind of passion.

I've listened to the new song Chankapana and I love it!
It's really a Tegoshi song. lol

GReeeeN - Haruka PV Rip

I ripped the song from the PV.
The song is a ballad without any single rap. I think this song is nice though there is no rap, which every GReeeeN song has rap part.

There are 2 versions of the rip.
The first one is I rip it from the whole pv, so there's the talk in the beginning and the end of the song.
The second one, I cut the talk in the beginning and the one, but there are still few words talk in the middle of the song.

1st version: MF
2nd version: MF

Sorry, I can only upload to MF.
Hope u enjoy it!

Oricon: fresh actors to keep an eye on

Several weeks ago, Oricon polled a group of 300 high school girls about up-and-coming young actors. The women were asked to identify which "fresh" actors they have been paying close attention to.

#1 was Takeru Sato, who first got his break as the star of "Kamen Rider Den-O." He has recently picked up a few major television roles in dramas such as "Bloody Monday" and "Mei-chan no Shitsuji."

Ranked 2nd was the highly popular Hiro Mizushima, who also appeared in "Mei-chan no Shitsuji." Haruma Miura, the star of "Bloody Monday," was #3.
