I can't believe it's the 15th already. Aha. And I most certainly cannot believe it's been 17 years since Arashi debuted. True, I've only been an "official" fan for a while, but it makes me proud, knowing how they stayed strong and together for almost 2 decades now. I actually read this blog post this morning, about the hardships that they've encountered at different points of their careers (especially from when they debuted up 'till 2005/6), and again, it makes me proud knowing that despite all of that—they're here. They stayed together and strived hard to get to where they are now. And man, just look at how they've become!
I don't want this to be all sappy and all, so here are a few gifs of the 5 adorkables who won our hearts. Happy 17th anniversary, Arashi! ♡
