Dear Sho-chan,
Happy Birthday☆
May you stay always as the Sho-chan who sprint whether it’s work or play
May you stay always as the Sho-chan who always laugh at small little thing
Zutto Daisuki~

When he was just a little boy…
He learnt piano, electronic organ, drawing, and much much more since he was a kid. He said he has never been free since he was small, every now and then he had to attend a lot of lessons, but he enjoyed it. Since then we know that this’s guy is going to do something big in future~


At the age of 13…

He entered Johnny’s Entertainment.
He applied it himself, after his classmates joked with him, “hey, why don’t you send application to johnnys?”
He did not tell his parents about it, and one day after he reached home from school ECA, he saw his mother holding one letter and he was questioned. “What’s this?” his mother showed him a letter from Johnny’s Entertainment, asking him to go for an audition. He explained and his mother couldn’t help but to laugh. His mother has no objection to his decision but his father strongly opposed. But on the audition day, it’s his father who sent him to the hall うれしい顔 Thanks Sho Papa and Mama or else we wouldn’t know such a guy in this world!!

Since then he has been dancing and singing at the back of most sempais especially V6, TOKIO and Kinki Kids. He enjoyed it because he can make a lot of friends.

He was so small and tiny that time, although he’s already 13, he’s only around 130cm, his mum worried about it and sent him for health checkup 冷や汗 (顔)


At the age of 17…
Together with Ohno, Aiba, Nino and Jun, they formed “Arashi”. He mentioned he was about to quit Johnnys Junior after high school, but they were asked to form a group to promote World Volleyball Championship. As he thought that may be a temporary group, he agreed to it and before he is able to realize what’s happening around him, five of them were already holding debut press conference at Hawaiiあせあせ (飛び散る汗)

First apperance in Music Station.



He was not very keen on debut but fans support changed his mind after his first concert. He cried on the concert. He said he is not sure whether his decision is right or wrong, but after the concert he knows he must work harder as there are so many fans supporting them. He said he always need to take leave due to his study and he thanked all the staffs and juniors.



He talked about the first concert during an interview in Shonen Club Premium too.



I’m really grateful that he continues working until today’s achievement, i wasn’t a fan from the beginning, that’s my regret, but i’m sure it’s his hardworking and never ending effort that makes more and more people know about him and of course the bond between five of them too.

At the age of 20 …
Turning adult, he swear to become a high quality adult. You have done it!


Sakurap

They were very famous once they debut, but this does not last for more than 2 or 3 years. After 2,3 years, they began to go downhill. He is in charge of Arashi’s rap part, and he wanted very much to rap well, but he doesn’t know how to. He met a lot of hip-hop singers and M-flo’s Verbal changed his “life”. Verbal told him “why not you write your own rap lyrics?” and he was enlightened. Since then, almost all of the rap lyrics in Arashi’s songs were written by this guy, Sakurai Sho. I love his raps~

He loves music. When asked would he be angry if he has a date with a girl and the girl was late, he said he would not mind if there’s a CD shop nearby, he can spend 2 hours inside there.He has been writing a lot of lyrics. He made one album for his classmates with lyrics written by himself during their graduation, he composed another wedding song “星になるまで” (Hoshi ni naru made) for his friend on his wedding, he composed another song “どこにいても” (Doko ni ite mo) for his best friend who went to Russia etc etc


Challenging to the maximum…
Arashi hold quite some varieties when they were not still that famous. Most of the varieties required them to go out location and did those very dangerous or very tough work. I think he must be very unwilling to do that, but he still have to do it. He has fear for heights and yet he still have to do the sky diving, he was half fainted after that….あせあせ (飛び散る汗)



This is not the toughest job yet. The one which he still have trauma is the one at Tsushima, where he got to dive and search for shell and abalone for “Arashi no Waza Ari” variety. Believe me.. if you’re Sho’s fan, you will cry when you watch it.. i dunno how’s the feeling of his parents looking at their son in such a tough situation.. He mentioned this recently in the “Futon DE Arashi” variety that he really think he cant make it, he told the director but the director just ignored him.. and he know he got to complete the work… After managing to get the “sazae” (shell?), he thought his job is complete but then he is asked to go to deeper place to get abalone, he has been diving for 9 hours and finally he’s over exausted and when the staff asked him, do you want to stop now? he said.. “だめかも..” (dame kamo = i think i cant make it anymore..) but after a short while he decided to dive again… my heart is so painful….

I hope he doesn’t have to go through all these again



Caster …
He said, he always wanted to know what he is able to do, what he wants to do in future besides singing. One day, he saw an announcer interviewing someone important, he’s the only announcer who has been given the chance to do that interview. He feels very kakkoii and since then he has been thinking of being a caster. He told JE about this but he was not really given the chance because he was still young at that time (20 or 21th). At the age of 24, he finally was given the chance to sit at the news caster seat, and since then he has been the caster for News Zero every Monday. He reads at least 3 newspaper everyday, all the co-actors/actress’s impression on him was “always holding a newspaper”. He was the main caster for Beijing and Vancouver Olympic too. Well, we do not deny that his name, Sakurai Sho = Arashi is maybe one of the reason why he is used, but at least he proved to us that he really work hard to it. And in a blink of eyes, it has already been 5 years since his days with ZERO~ Ganbatte~


Acting …
Tokio in “TOKIO”, Bambi in “Kisarazu Cat’s Eyes”, Kamiyama in “The Quiz Show”, Mimura in “Yamatarou no Monogatari”, Tamura in “Tokujyo Kabachi”, Taiyou Sensei in “Yoiko no Mikata”, Kageyama in “Nazotoki wa Dinner no Atode” etc etc etc, he’s the second which i think can act well after Nino in Arashi. I love Taiyou Sensei the most actually!! Wanted to write a review on the drama but still couldnt finish it… あせあせ (飛び散る汗)


Drawing …
Well, the other four members always teased him that he is wasting his parents money in sending him to arts school, but i think he has another kind of drawing sense though? :D
Look at his totoro ~ :D



Sho competed with Ohno in drawing in GRA, here’s what they draw. What do you think? Not too bad right?あっかんべー


His interest …
Body building? あっかんべー, piano, soccer, travelling, ski that’s the only thing i know. He always looks so happy when talking about soccer and travelling, and showing his muscle *LOL* Still remember the Shiyagare when the national team soccer members were the guest? He managed to get two goals from the national team gold keeper and he was really overjoyed. His happy look really brightens up my day晴れ And also another episode where a former national player Kazu was the guest. They were having quiz on soccer and he enjoyed it so much~




Gourmet …
He loves eating!! Nothing is not delicious to him. He said he finish every food that is given to him, that’s his policy. Hmm.. i feel so ashamed of myself for being choosy in food… I love to see the way he eat, and say “Umeeee~~~~”


Hmm….. why am i writing all these..?
Sorry, i dunno too… *LOL*
Initially i just wanna say Happy Birthday to him, but i end up writing facts on him!! *LOL*
The main reason that i like him so much is because he can be very serious in work, and yet he can play very much. Aiba once said, Sho is very clever, and yet he can be very “baka”, coz he plays to the fullest too. And another reason is because of his laughter. His laughing point is very low and very often we can hear him laughing “AHAHAHAHAHAH” while clapping hands, i like that 黒ハート Just today, in the latest magazine, Jun mentioned about Sho always laughing while clapping hands *LOL*


Anyway, i just like him very very much!!! *LOL* 黒ハート黒ハート黒ハート
大好き!

Lastly, Happy Birthday again!
昔と変わらずにいてね~ stays the same as ever~


This is a clip made by a fan, it’s so well made!!! :cry:
(There’s CM at the beginning of the clip, do wait for it, it’s worth it)

    Sorry, i got it from one page, but all the links were from Megaload, I’m sure you know what happened to Megaupload.. it was banned, the person in charged was arrested by FBI or whatever… and the website is down.. so every sources & movies uploaded in the website were all gone.. *CRY* a very big discouraging happening to all Arashics… i loved MU so much and depend so much on it….. sighs…

    i mentioned i took the pictures from weibo or twitter, but some people copied the whole thing, and even my captions and even my paragraphs, if you check on all the replies i replied to others, i said i don’t mind if you wanna put in your blog or whatever but when it comes to the whole album, i hope you can share instead of copying.. i cant understand if there is 100 photos in the album, why she choose to copy each photos (means copying whole 100photos) and set the SAME photo album as me.
    I dont mind if it’s one or two.. And the person who copied the photos copied all the captions which i wrote myself.
    In that case, shouldn’t you be putting on something like “grabbed online” or watever ?
    I took time to translate everything, but imagine, those words are being copied and without even mentioning a word.
    OK, i dun wanna spoil the mood also, i didnt say all but pictures are captured by myself too. I dont think i need to reveal my twitter or weibo account here.

    ok, tell me her account and i wont share the pictures on the fb anymore.
    if there is a link from twitter to fb, i will use that but there isn’t.
    i will never use her picture anymore since she is affected.
