Arashi’s Imaginary Xmas Party
Arashi hosts a Christmas party with the 5 of them!!
But as it is, it’s pretty difficult so we’ll have them imagine how it would be like!!
I hate typing their name over and over again so I color-coded them, hopefully it's okay! Color scheme as per usual but I'll put it up anyway just in case :
The memorable 10th anniversary of Arashi as of 2009 is soon coming to an end, but a big event is coming up soon too!
Yes, it’s Christmas huh~ Here, it’s a bit abrupt, but I think I’d like to imagine about Arashi’s ideal Christmas party.
In that case I’ll be in charge of the decorations. Because I’ll go buy the stuff too.
Ah, in that case I’ll also take the decorating…
Leave the cooking to me!
Eh~ What’s left is… then I’ll be in charge of booking the venue. It’s important right?
Outdoors? Or at home?
A room with a great scenery, something like that. So that it won’t be cancelled in case it rains… right.
That’s good. Like something with a terrace.
Oh~ I forgot about something important. Aiba-san is fine with the role of a reindeer right? It’s extremely important though…
In that case I’ll accept the role with all my heart. Then, who will be Santa?
No, Santa is absent. The reindeer moves just like that (laugh).
I’ll go buy a bingo game.
Like I said, I’ll be in charge of buying stuff… In that case, go and get the prizes as well.
I get it, I’ll do it. I’ll get a nice prize with whatever money’s left over from what I collected from everyone.
Eh? Even though you’re the leader, you’ll collect money from the members?
Then I'll pay a bit more than the rest of you.
All : (burst out in laughter)
By the way is it okay to just have a reindeer? What about other jobs?
The job of the reindeer is to wait for the arrival of Santa right?
But unfortunately at Arashi’s Christmas party, Santa won’t be there (laugh)
In other words, in standby mode!
Even stuff like cleaning up? Like the bed/floor*.
It won’t get dirty that easily.
The five of us will exchange presents, eat, have a bingo tournament, and at the end we’ll end it by singing A.RA.SHI together~ ♪
It ends with that song.
Well, I suppose it’s 120 minutes course of all-you-can-drink.
Eh? It’s karaoke?
Does that include encore?
But if you sing A.RA.SHI it’s gonna end like that~
I said that just now!
Is it okay if Yano Kenta sings somewhere in the middle? Sort of like an extra chapter…
No, it’s enough with just 1 song.
Then… I’ll save it for the next time.
So this means we won’t be singing our repertoire. We’ll decide it with just A.RA.SHI.
As expected. Besides, there’s a lot we can do in 120 minutes’ time huh.
We’ll eat, a huge mountain of an amount!
I’ll prepare a whole full course, so it’s gonna take up some time~
Will there be a cake?
No. I don’t have the time!
In that case, hurry up and start preparing now. Because it seems like it will take up a lot of time (laugh).
Questions for Arashi!!
Speaking of Christmas songs and gourmet food?
Song : If we’re talking about Christmas it has to be “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” huh (laugh). I think I’ll start whistling one way or another!
Gourmet : The Christmases when I was a child, it was something like pizza and chicken. We ate it together as a family. Now, I have parties with my friends.
Song : It has got to be Yamashita Tatsuro’s “Christmas Eve” I guess. It immediately comes to mind as an image so I’m decided on this song.
Gourmet : The standard with would be chicken huh. But my house is a Chinese restaurant so we often have Chinese food together as a family on Christmas.
Song : Yamashita Tatsuro’s “Christmas Eve.” It’s always playing during this time of the year right? It’s to the point where I can think of no other song.
Gourmet : Because we’re not a family who comes up with Christmas dishes… We have the cake at least, I guess. The standard would be dad’s favourite shortcake.
Song : Yamashita Tatsuro’s “Christmas Eve.” I love this song a lot, and I have a really strong impression of this song being played around this time of the year every year.
Gourmet : The one that I can think right off the bat would be cake. To tell the truth, I don’t really eat it but… that’s the standard, right!
Song : It has to be Yamashita Tatsuro’s “Christmas Eve” right. I’ve seen it being performed in front of me, it was really cool.
Gourmet : Ever since I was little, Christmas had the image of eating Kentucky’s chicken. When you eat it occasionally, it’s tasty you know.
*the kanji used here can mean both :) Well it most probably means floor hahah!
There we go! I'm in a Christmassy mood after all that :3 (And don't think I didn't notice how you two gave almost similar explainations for the song question, Ohmiya! Don't think you can fool us by saying it the other way around!)
