2007-2008 Johnny's Countdown Concert Report  

Hello Minnachan!~

I am very slow I know LOL~
ANYWAY. Usual Rules apply, NO COPYING OUT OF MY LJ, JUST LINK BACK HERE.

I was queuing for my KinKi Kids Concert goods and I called one of my best friends at about 1pm or so.. and the rehersal for Countdown was going on! I could hear Good Day and Sorafune and that was it! :P

During dinner, my friend's friend said that Tsubasa's Uchiwa sold out first.
AND AND... THAT ARASHI HAD THEIR OWN UCHIWA BOOTH, WHEREAS OTHER GROUPS HAD TO SHARE BOOTHS!!!!
Unlike regular concert goods booths, the fans cannot buy all the goods at once thus when they bring you in batch by batch, fans must queue at different booths for different groups' uchiwas. LOL AND ARASHI'S BOOTH WAS THE FIRST BOOTH OF THE ENTIRE GOODS STALL!!

Before the concert started, this security guard was staring at me fidgeting around LOL :P
THIS SECURITY GUARD GUY IS HILARIOUS!! LOL he crouched down due to the deafening screams for Arashi and he was super amused with this "controlled smile" on his face!I think he was amazed by how the fans knew all the moves to all the songs!! LOL. I was observing this security guy quite abit!! LOL I can't help it if has a O_O?!? expression on his face! LOL and he covered his ears and squatted down when KAT-TUN came out LOL 

So before every start of the concert, we must get ready!
Shouchan Uchiwas? Check!
Arashi Penlights? Check!
Shouchan Towel? Check!
Binos? Check!
Other illegal things? Check!

V6 was the first group to appear and the pre-OA concert segment  started with V6's Believe Your Smile!!
V6: "Sei no!"
Tokyo Dome: "Wohh Wohh Wohh! Wohh Wohh Wohh!"
My friend and I were laughing at the next V6 song.. it was a horrible rapping song  OMG up till now I have no idea what it is.
YES!! UTAO-UTAO! Wohh Wohh Wohh Wohh Wohh, Wohh Wohh Wohh Wohh Wohh, ISSHO NI UTAO UTAO!!
(V6 songs has so many wohs. Like how Arashi songs have so many yeahs :P)
HONEY BEAT!! ^^ Love this song and the furitsuke!!
"I wanna make you shining smile
Tobinorou yo Honey Beat
Namdia wo kawashite asu wo ubae
Aa darekano tame ni(ikiatte) kimi wa kimi da yo
Waratte waratte waratte...
Waratte waratte waratte!!!!!!!"

NEXT! ARASHI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE CAN MAKE IT!!! MATSUJUN IS WEARING GEEK GLASSES?! HAAHAA (I am blind so i thought he was doing a MatsuJohn >.<)
ARASHI : "Sugisarishi hibi furikaeru koto mo dekizu ni everyday
Dore kurai mada kono michi wa tsuzuku darou ka?  Karada ni"

Arashi: "Kanjiru rizumu"
Tokyo Dome: "Yeah...!~"
Arashi: "Kodou tsubasa ni"
Tokyo Dome: "Yeah...!~"
Arashi: "Mayoi jyosou ni"
Tokyo Dome: "Yeah...!~"
Arashi: "Itai hodo itoshii!!!"

ARASHI + TOKYO  DOME : "We can make it true, Hontou no yume wa itsumo Soba ni aru
Hateshinaku iroi sekai, Hitotsu dake Kagayaita My Dream My dream , we can make it! we can make it!"

You guys know how the rest goes so I wont repeat but after his rap and solo parts he shouted
"MAIYA TOKYO!!" (meaning DANCE TOKYO!!!!!!) *INSERT SCREAMS!!*

ARASHI + TOKYO  DOME : "We can make it true, Yuruganai yume wa itsumo Soko ni aru
Hateshinaku hiroi sekai, Ima sugu ni Tsukamitore, Your Dream Your Dream"

Matsujun: " OKAY TOKYO DOME!!!!!!" *YAYYY!!!!!!!!!!*
 "LETS GET HIGHER!"
Shouchan: "UH UH UH UH!"
Matsujun:"UH UH UH UH!"

Everyone did the waving of the penlights left and right for OH YEAH! really well!! JUST LIKE AN ARASHI CONCERT!!!

ARASHI + TOKYO  DOME : Ryou te   Takaku age te  Kono hoshi wo sasaete utatta bokura
Arashi : Ten ni todoke maiagare Oh Yeah!
Tokyo Dome : Oh Yeah!
ARASHI + TOKYO  DOME :Mou ichidou  Ano hi ni modoru to shitemo  Onaji michi erabu darou
Arashi: Hitotsu ni nare  maiagare Oh Yeah!
Tokyo Dome: Oh Yeah!
ARASHI + TOKYO DOME: Chikazuuiteru

Arashi : Wohh wohh wohh,wohh wohh wohh...
Tokyo Dome: Wohh wohh wohh wohh.....
Arashi : Wohh wohh wohh,wohh wohh wohh...(SHOUCHAN SHOUTS: DOUMO ARIGATOU)
Tokyo Dome: Wohh wohh wohh wohh.....
Arashi : Wohh wohh wohh,wohh wohh wohh...
Tokyo Dome: Wohh wohh wohh wohh.....

Tokyo Dome: UE!!
Arashi : Atarashii nanika o mitsukeru
Tokyo Dome: NE!!
Arashi : Kitto mata neguri au
Tokyo Dome: SOMEDAY!!

Tokyo Dome: YEAH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH YEAH YEAH!! YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!!
Shouchan: HEYO Everybody say!
Tokyo Dome: YEAH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH YEAH YEAH!! YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!!
Shouchan: HEYO LEFT SIDE!
Tokyo Dome: YEAH YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YEAH YEAH YEAH!! YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH!!

Matsujun introduced Tackey and Tsubasa!
And they came on with this " We are the T & T" song
We were shouting TAKKI! TAKKI! TAKKI! and TSUBASA! TSUBASA! TSUBASA! and YOU TACHI! YOU TACHI! YOU TACHI!
Terribly Random!! and after that was Crazy Rainbow and VENUS!HAHA, Tsubasa looked like some boy who just enlisted in the military, but no don't get me wrong, he still looked kakkoii. The crew cut is far better than the previous long floppy hairstyle~ V(o^_^o)

Tackey and Tsubasa Introduced Tokio!
They started with SoraFune and then Ashita Wo Mezashite!!
And Kanpai Kanpai!!!
KANPAI!!  FAITO!  FAITO!  YEAH!
FAITO!  YEAH!
 
(My dear friend... did you hear us laughing here? lol!!)

OHCHAN: EEEEEEEAY!!!
Tokyo Dome: YAY!!
AIBACHAN: KONBANWA!!!!!!
Tokyo Dome: KONBANWA!!!!!
MATSUJUN: JOHNNY'S COUNTDOWN (H)E YOKOSO! (WELCOME TO THE JOHNNY'S COUNTDOWN!)
Tokyo Dome:YAY!!
SHOUCHAN: 2007NIEN NO LASUTO TANOSHI IKOUZE!! (LET'S ENJOY THE LAST OF YEAR 2007!!)
Tokyo Dome:YAY!!

 
* Insert random senpai rambling here*

And they were saying how they were ultra nervous, and asked the audience for their guidance..and did the OA thing!
It was quite funny as they told us:
5
4
3
2
1
*WAVE YOUR UCHIWAS AND PENLIGHTS*
-OKAY EVERYONE OFF AIR ALREADY! CAN REST NOW- LOL!!!
It was quite amusing. LOL even the security guy was like O_O?!  LOL
If I remembered correctly, we did this *Wave your uchiwas thing* twice.
Then it was the real OA sequence! ^^

-OA SEGMENT-

KinKi Kids came out with Garasu No Shounen and their costumes were actually quite nice.
Although we cannot hear it on the televised clips, the whole dome actually sang
"Stay With Me, Garasu No Shounen No Jidai No"

Arashi came out with Happiness and the Dome sang "Yeah Yeah Yeah"
Admittedly, I was counting the numbers when NewS came out and was disappointed when I saw 6.
I had to divert my attention to Arashi as they were getting ready on the left side of the Ø.
Following NewS was Tokio with Honjitsu, Mijukumono.
V6 came out with Honey Beat and most of us were thrown off because we didn't expect "Waratte, Waratte, Waratte" to come after "I want to make you shining smile! Tobinorou Yo HONEY BEAT"
Tackey and ArmyBoy came out with Dame!Dame!Dame!Dame!Dame!Dame Giri Giri!!
(Insert really loud screams for KAT-TUN) As expected, they put Akame together in front.
And Kanjani8 with It's my soul.

KAT-TUN started the show with Keep The Faith and I noticed Jin bending down to pick up something that someone dropped...
Maybe it was Junno's/Koki's Sunglasses?? I didn't see Ueda at the Countdown at all...Oops.
But anyways, I felt that Kame was drowning under the weight of his chequered tent-like pashmina shawl thing.

Was busy looking for Arashi members when my friend said TSUBASA!!!TSUBASA!!!
On my right, Tsubasa and Kanjani8 were coming around on the moving carts, and Tsubasa was up there singing Samurai!

V6 was too far away singing way of life, so I was watching Kanjani8 as they made their way up to the first level of the moving cart. But I really like V6's live sound. It is really like how it is on their records, and their lives are really stable sounding unlike some other groups.

Kanjani8 started sining Zukkoke Otokomichi as they passed by and i must say, Yasu is really quite adorable!!^^ Subaru had this manly AURA about him,Ryo was just singing so he didn't really waved so much and Ohkura's back was facing me. Hina was waving to the people below me..and I didn't see Yoko (yet) but I thought Maru badly needed a haircut. Or some Hair Pins? I really like this song, so I enjoyed seeing the people in front of me doing the Furitsuke (moves/actions?)
 
Honestly I did not see HeySayJump because i am blind and NewS was coming around the corner. And every other junior was dressed in white ^^; I can't help it if I am THAT BLIND / Chinen is THAT SMALL.

Tokio came on with SEISYuN and my friend was already staring at Mabo.. LOL!Joushima's hair looked like..Jun's Kakushi Toride Hair to me LOL. But yes MABO was extremely kakkoii!!

NewS was coming around and Arashi was getting ready on the left side of the Ø.
NewS was directly in front of us when they started the 2nd "Ashita Kara Mata Nichi Getsu Ka, Hora Sui Moku Mawatte Kin Do" YamaP has a really small face!!! He is really very very cute in real life!!!! ^^ Koyama and Shige were both waving to my side whilst Ryo and Tego were waving to the people below.. and when they were done with the song, Massu put up both of his hands and waved with his big smile.. KYAAA super cute!! I've seen Massu before at the Arashi Time Concerts in the summer, but kyaaa!! He is very cute!! ^^ (LOL short attention span here as I SPOT ARASHI ON STAGE!!)

ARASHI!!!!!!!!!!!! KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
I really like how they started Love So Sweet and the 3 dancing behind was always looking at each other.. Especially my favourite pair, Sakurai Aiba!!! LOL I think my friend  will beg to differ! LOL but yes, it was very evident that they were checking how other members were doing!!!!!!! and the atmosphere was like an ARASHI CONCERT!!!!!! The entire Dome knew how to do the HEY! HEY! HEY! by themselves and the fans got the rhythm spot on!! You could just see them relaxing as their faces broke into familiar smiles. KYAAAA!! I must say here that I AM EXTREMELY EXTREMELY PROUD OF THE FACT THAT THE LAST JOHNNY'S SONG OF 2007 WAS SUNG BY ARASHI!!!!!!!!!! OMEDETOU!!!!!!!!!!!

Basically, The last 20seconds of 2007 was a big mess as everyone was going around saying their greetings, mixing around whilepoor Shouchan was trying to say something!!LOL! I think he gave up in the end!! LOL i kept hearing "Saa!" then after awhile, "Saa!" LOL Shouchan,why are you so cute!!!!? LOL

THEN out of nowhere, NAGASE KISSED KOICHI ON HIS LEFT CHEEK...!
Senpai fans went KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!! ^^
(OKAY! FOCUS BINOS BACK ON ARASHI!)

Earlier, my friend texted me about the Hatsu Uta song, and as we were not used to the new song, we just swayed our penlights left and right.Tokio was coming over to the outer transparent stage but err.. I was busy looking at Arashi. LOL During Hatsu Uta, Nagase did the Suteki Saa~~ And OHCHAN DID THE REST OF THE HAPPY HAPPY  and other backup words!!!!! KYAA~!

KinKi Kids kickstarted the 10 Year Best Hits Medley and Tokio was coming over on the transparent stage.
(Didn't pay much attention here!! was looking for the boys!! LOL)
V6 went on whilst Matsujun was below the stage reading some papers and suddenly Arashi started sprinting from some black hole in the stage to the opposite side's outer transparent stage!!

AND ARASHI STARTED SINGING A.Ra.Shi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! KYAAAAAAAAAA!!
*Note, I didn't notice something that one of my friends notice..which is when they show the images of each year, the only johnny's debut image they showed was ARASHI FOR 1999!!!!  They didn't show Tackey and Tsubasa, NewS, Kanjani8,KAT-TUN or Hey Say Jump Debut clips!

Hajikera YEAH!! Sunao ni GOOD!
Dakara choito omoi no wa BOO!
THAT'S ALL RIGHT!!!!

Sore demo jidai wo kiwameru
Sou sa bokura wa SUPER BOY!
WE ARE COOL!
Yana koto atte mo dokka de kakko tsukeru
Yaru dake kedo ii desho?
Yume dake mottatte ii desho?

You are my SOUL! SOUL!
Itsumo sugu soba ni aru
Yuzurenai yo dare mo ja made kinai
Karadajyuu ni kaze wo atsumete
Maki okose
A.RA.SHI 
A.RA.SHI for dream!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE DOME WAS DEAFENING !!! AND EVERYONE WAS SINGING TO A.Ra.Shi!! KYAAA!!
The words in red are the deafening parts!!!

AND I really like how year 1999 belonged to ARASHI entirely and also, year 2000 with Sunrise Nippon!!
HAHA at this point, I was thinking if this was an ARASHI concert, or if the entire dome was filled with ARASHI FANS!!!

Everyone was kyaa-ing at Nino and YamaP! ^^

I liked the Tokio-Kanjani8 collobration for Message. Mabo was rubbing Ohkura's back when Ohkura was drumming.Mabo bent over to Ohkura just a little bit and proceeded to headbang abit along to the beats of Ohkura's drumming! Really liked how the Senpais were just by their side to support them throughout the song!

Frankly speaking, Nagase went out of tune quite abit for Hitoribocchi No Haburashi. Jin definitely did better for this song. The screaming went CRAZY when Jin came on stage and when KAT-TUN followed behind. Koki's face when he did the song was LOL-TASTIC. Really classic.

2001 with Ai No Melody featuring V6 and Tackey and Tsubasa at the Screen Stage! I enjoyed the stable sound (compared to the previous song) So it was like a much-welcomed breath of fresh air.

2002 SHALL GO DOWN AS THE ULTIMATE CAMERA WHORES BATTLE.
MATSUMOTO JUN VERSUS KAMENASHI KAZUYA!! LOL
I AM PROUD OF MATSUJUN. THE ELITE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL
As Kame was getting ready unleash whatever sexy moves he had, OUR MATSUJUN JUST WALKED RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA!!!
LOL thus, the camera's focus moved from a semi-prepared Kame to our strutting HIME! LOL!!!!
Kame's face fell a little bit so he proceed to show his moves somewhere else.
Somehow, when Kame noticed the camera coming again, OUR DARLING ELITE JUST SUDDENLY CAME ONTO THE SCREEN AGAIN!!! LOL, OMG seriously, the boy isn't an elite for nothing LOL!!!

Ohchan was singing Hanauta but he looked like he didn't know some of the song lyrics! LOL
When one group is singing, another group will get ready somewhere else, and most JE boys know the furitsuke of other groups,so they will do the furitsuke of other groups when the other groups are performing.. but OHCHAN is like a lost bird!! It seems that he doesn't know the furitsuke of other groups so he just fools around and waves his arms in circles behind by himself!!! LOL SUPER CUTE!!

So sorry, but I cannot forgive Koki and Nakamaru for their rendition of Pikanchi. Thank god for the 3 senpais with them.

Eien No BLOODS for 2003 was ultra cute as we see Aibachan on one side and Nino on the other!!:D :D :D :D :D :D Nino was peeking behind the rest of the guys as he was trying to look at Aibachan!! KYAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! MEMBER LOVE!

HAHAHA Tackey and Koichi's Darling was funny as both of them didn't know the furitsuke and thus had to look behind their backs at the juniors for a little furitsuke help!! LOL!!Both of them somehow managed to muddle their way through the song!!! :D :D

Ambitious JAPAN was really funny as Okada was totally eyeing tsuyoshi and tsuyoshi was ignoring Okada!! these two!! :D :D :D :D :D As they got off stage, Tsuyoshi was smacking Okada's back!

SHOUCHAN!! Announcing Tackey and Tsubasa's debut with Yume Monogatari! Everyone knew the moves of this song.

NewS was coming around on small pushcarts singing NewS Nippon (Not paying any attention as Matsujun was coming over and getting ready) And KinKi kids got onto the Outer transparent Moving Stages, one on each side. Koichi was coming over as Matsujun Announced 2004 with Anniversary.As Matsujun got off stage, the Ø was gradually lighting up in gold!! First the ( then ) light in an anti clockwise direction then the / lit up! Very pretty!

As they were singing Ne, Ganbaru yo, Aibachan was getting ready on the / of the Ø!!
2005, Mecha Sukiyanen! Honma Sukiyanen! And for the first time i noticed Yoko because he was fooling around with Aibachan!! LOL  

Kame and Yamap were getting ready for Seishun Amigo. This song was a hit with the fans as the screaming went a few notches higher(and louder!!)Yappa, Everyone knew the moves to this song too!
LOL and suddenly out of nowhere, Ryo and Jin came on to join Shuuji to Akira. (insert 102398109381decibels more)
I was sitting on the other side of where they were but it was evident that Yamap, Ryo and Jin were standing close to each other, away from Kame. There was a pretty big gap between Kame and the other 3 guys.

LOL I LOVE FANTASTIPO!! LOL and it is so obvious that Nagase and Kochan didn't know the furitsuke but it was really funny and cute!! Nagase did this hip swaying thing at the end, it was quite funny!!

Daite Senorita was the first song for 2006 and all the guys were at the Screen stage , meaning we couldn't really see that much there was some arashi action in the Ø but I did see YamaP and Toma putting their heads together and leaning on each other.

As much as i adore Sakamoto and respect Joushima's guitar swinging antics... THE TWO UNCLE RENDITION OF MISO SOUP was quite a shock to our systems.Now you know, in 25years or so, how Tegomassu's Miso Soup will be like. LOL My friend and I were unable to stomach the shock. LOL I can accept Sakamoto singing miso soup but Joushima ... er i was checking his pants out

I know now...that Joushima was wearing an extremely tight pair of pants.
While my friend was busy looking at Sakamoto..i spent the entire 2 minutes trying to figure out of the old man forgot his pants.
LOL I admit i am really blind at times and i was staring through a pair of binos so I came to the conclusion that the old man was actually
wearing some funky shimmering olive green/gray tights/pantyhose. AHHHHHHHH  KYAAAAAAAAAA ARASHI ON STAGE!!! VERY NICE COSTUMES!!!! with v6!
(totally forgets about Joushima's pants mystery) 

KYAAAA KISARAZU CAT'S EYE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REALLY REALLY LOVED HOW ARASHI MOVED IN SYNC (even though there isn't any furitsuke for Seaside Bye bye!!)
After awhile, V6 started doing what Arashi was doing too!! :D :D :D
OKADA AND SHOUCHAN!!!!! BUSSAN AND BAMBI!!!! KYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! *dies*
:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

KAT-TUN was coming up on the moving cart on my right singing Real Face but I was looking for Arashi..

Kanfu Fighting!!!!!! The screams were quite loud for this one as well. NewS was on the top and Kanjani8 was on the 2nd level of the moving stage, Poor Ryo, he had to run up to perform NewS. (WHERE IS ARASHI??)

Kanjani8 struck me as a super yasashii group as other people were performing, they were also mouthing the lyrics of the songs of other groups and waving, and they were encouraging the fans to sing the songs of other groups as well! *Applaudes* Even when the camera focus went to NewS, they didn't stop waving and encouraging!(Just like Arashi!!) 

KYAAAAAAAA ON MY RIGHT!!! ARASHI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WAVING TO THE CROWD!!!!!KYAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!! 
KAT-TUN was on the 2nd level.

KITTO DAIJYOUBU!!!
Their cart passed by us a few moments before shouchan said: WHEN I WAS DRIVING TONIGHT!!
As News came around with Kanjani8, 2 members of Tokio (was not paying attention) and Kinki Kids were getting ready on the inner transparent moving stage. But obviously I was staring at ARASHI! They were singing Harmony of December then Tackey and Tsubasa with V6 performing Good Day after that! Arashi was waving at the fans the entire time!Arashi got off the moving cart and Nino disappeared with Matsujun to God Knows Where. The other 3 ran into the darkness of the Ø!

During the start of Venus, Tackey and Tsubasa and V6 decided to become chickens for abit.
Tokio and Kink kids were coming over and NAGASE... -_-||| NAGASE DECIDED TO DO THE SONNA NO KANKEI NE!! followed by OPPAPI!!! (please google Kojima Yoshio if you don't understand!)
*LAUGHS!!* Didn't expect to see that at a Johnny's Countdown!! LOL
Taichi started conducting in front of a staring Nagase for sorafune!! SUPER CUTE!!! LOL Koichi was shaking at the side by himself >.< (What is going on in those senpai minds?! LOL! SHOUCHAN GETTING READY ON THE Ø!!)

OOH! Shouchan announces the performance of Higashiyama!! Somehow..everyone starts swarming on stage ..climbing out from black holes and out of nowhere really :P Shouchan starts interviewing Higashiyama whilst the right side of the DOME start to see a white, cheap looking dragon approach.
The Rat 7 was on it with Nino and Matsujun! The white dragon is actually just a white cloth covering a metal structure with a plastic head :P haha we noticed a big tear on the white dragon on the side that was facing us. When Matsujun interviewed Jin and Ryo, the screams were very loud! And finally, the appearance of Ikuta Toma!! The screams for Toma were loud too!

Matsujun made a small mistake saying SAA! before his face was on the screen!! LOL Tsuyoshi was very cute here!! Kochan put his head really near the camera, so it felt like the KinKi Concert earlier on!! Tsuyo did it during the Ø Concert as well!Am really glad that tsuyoshi was in such a good mood for the countdown this year! He was willing to play with the other senpais and everyone else!! :D :D :D

Now the Arashi boys are everywhere and it is Aibachan with Tackey and Armyboy and Nino appears with V6!! Matsujun is waving and waiting behind on the dragon for his turn! SHOUCHAN with KANJANI8!! So cute! :D OHCHAN IS on the opposite side SIDE WITH NEWS!! SUPER CUTE!! The White dragon just passed us and it seems that Matsujun is with Tokio! SHOUCHAN ON OUR SIDE WITH KAT-TUN!!! SHOUCHAN!! SUPER CUTE!!!!!!!!"SAA!!" Matsujun interviewed Tokio while Shouchan ran across the /.

He made a mistake and said "SAA!" 3 seconds before they went on OA and everyone laughed so on tv, his face was quite black as he repeated his "SAA!" to introduce Hatsu Uta.
It was pretty obvious to us that he was angry with himself for making such a mistake so before they started Hatsu Uta..there was a pregnant pause with his solemn face :P *Pats Shouchan*
Nino really threw his board so far!!! *checked with a fancam!! ^^* and they gathered to say their greetings!!

-END OF OA SEGMENT-

Shouchan introduced (In order):
Higashiyama
Ikuta Toma
KAT-TUN
KANJANI8
NewS
Tackey and Tsubasa
V6
KinKi Kids
Shochan forgot to introduce Tokio and said "Saa! Sore Dewa!" and Tokio was like OEI OEI OEI!! HAHAHA
Tokio

And NAGASE DID A WONDERFUL INTRODUCTION FOR ARASHI!!
NAGASE: "LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST!SUPER GROUP!!!!!LETS SHOUT IT OUT TOGETHER! SEI NO!"
TOKYO DOME: ARASHI!!!!!!!

THANK YOU NAGASE FOR MAKING IT SO ARASHIFIED!! It really felt like an ARASHI CONCERT!!

Arashi was the only group left and as they made their way back to the screen stage, they kept waving n smile bye bye and saying YEAR2008 MO YOROSHIKU!! AKEMASHITE OMEDETOU! DOUMO ARIGATOU!
It was like at their own concert and the fans were waving and ushering them off!! :D :D :D :D

Ohchan was the first one to reach the screen stage.. and HE WAITED FOR THE REST OF THE ARASHI MEMBERS TO ARRIVE. KYAAAAAAAAAA!!
And then when the other 4 arrived, they were the only one left on stage waving goodbye!!
So they shouted their last bye byes
Shouchan was the last one on the stage and like any other Arashi concert, he waved really hard and told us to be safe on our journey back home!! ^^

(LOL i took 2.5hrs to get to my hotel in Narita.. OMG *DIED*)

They must have been really nervous and worried about the countdown so they were not really playing as much as the previous years. Otsukare!!
I don't really know what to say, but I am really glad to see Arashi being pushed to the top for this year's Countdown!! Arashi made great leaps and jumps in the  YEAR 2007! So happy I got the chance to see
them get the recognition they truly deserve.
2007 was really good to me (Echoing what Aho2 said)
2008 will be another great ride
Thanks for reading this!! and please forgive my spelling,grammar errors! ^^

Battle of the camwhores had me cracking up so badly!

Because Arashi was given responsibility, they didn't really manage to be nutcases but they did a fine job despite minor glitches.

Saa~

Thank you for the detailed report! It feels like i've been there myself too XD I love how Arashi-fied this year's Countdown was, but i wonder what other groups' fans think about it... i hope they won't hate Arashi for being over-exposed!
They did a really good job even though you can tell they were nervous! And Kame & Jun "camera battle" really cracked me up! XDDD

That was the greatest con report EVER. SO MUCH ARASHI *___*. YAY FOR THEM HAVING THEIR OWN UCHIWA BOOTHS AND EVERYTHING!!!

And LOL at the security guard you were talking about at the beginning. XD

And I also will not forgive Koki and Nakamaru for what they did to Pikanchi. *shudders*
