L'arc~en~ciel X X X PV

A very sexy number by L'arc~en~ciel


STEP INTO FASCINATION, TRAP OF INFATUATION
KISS...KISS...




Alice Nine Shou & FT Island Hongki Wearing Same Studded Sneakers! [Christian Louboutin Studded Sneakers]

Hey everyone! I've instantly recognised these studded sneakers when I was watching the recent Alice Nine channel, and also noticed that both Shou and Hongki are wearing them *^^* Such fashionistas! 


Hongki was wearing them for the PV "Distance" (quite recent) and Shou was wearing them on the January 2012 Episode of Alice Nine Channel (*^^*)




At first I thought they were Giuseppe Zanotti ones, but I can't see the trademark zip Zanotti sneakers have at the side of the laces, and Zanotti sneakers do not have studs at the front/toes. The studs were also placed differently so I decided they aren't Zanotti sneakers *^^*.

BUT


I think they are  quite possibly Christian Louboutin sneakers. (*^.~*)


Examples of Louboutin sneakers below.

Apologies for poor quality, I could not find a better quality one that could show the sneakers clearly. However if you watch the Alice Nine Channel Episode, you'll see them all the time *^^*

Alice Nine Channel Alice9 ちゃんねる Nico Nico Douga January 16th, 2012 [2012.01.16] Subtitle & Translation




Notes:
  • A Coming of Age ceremony is held every year in January to congratulate the "new adults" = people who have turned 20 over the past year
  • A hakama is a form of traditional Japanese clothing usually worn by men. They would (usually) wear one to such occasions like a Coming of Age ceremony or wedding
  • Samurai Spirits (or Samurai Shodown) is a fighting game. Some of the characters include Ukyo Tachibana and Haomaru
  • Furuhata Ninzaburo is an old police / detective drama
  • Japanese badminton is played like normal badminton, but the racquets (or battledores) are small paddles
  • "9" is pronounced as "ku" or "kyuu" in Japanese. The box segment is related to the new album title because "kusai" means stinky / smelly; and the bucket + cucumber segment is related to the new album because cucumber is pronounced as "kyuuri" in Japanese
  • Tunnels is a comedic duo
  •  In Japanese, "end-of-the-year party" is made up from the words "forget", "year" and "meeting", so they are held to forget all of the troubles and hardships of the previous year
  • "City Hunter" is a manga, and the main character, Saeba Ryo is always waiting for a "mokkori chance" = chance to do something perverted
  • "Makkori" is the Japanese pronunciation of an alcoholic Korean drink, Makgeolli
  • Jang Geun Seok (sometimes Keun or Suk is used) is a South Korean actor / singer who is popular in Japan. He released one single in Japanese
  • Jang Pon Suk is what Hiroto dubbed himself on Twitter
  • Shinbashi is a district in Tokyo
  • Sagacrhyme is a nickname Saga earned in 2009 because he looked like one of the rappers from Hilcrhyme
  • Nagatomo Yuto is the name of a soccer player who "also went to Italy" = plays for an Italian team 
  • Beyblades is a Japanese manga / cartoon, which they use a spinning top to fight
  • A woman's kimono is held together with a piece of cloth that is wrapped around her (like a belt), so there used to be jokes that perverted lords in the old days would undress her, and pull off her belt so fast that she would spin around
  • The Edo period (or Tokugawa period) was from around 1603 - 1868

Saga with Chiko : Need to You
Credit: DearNumbers


You told us "We want to meet the real Chiko!", so we've decided to do a photoshoot of Saga together with his idol dog, Chiko-chan. The day we did the photoshoot was a cold winter day and it seemed like it could start raining at any time. But despite his old age (16 years old!), the pictures we took show him strolling & playing around cheerfully with Saga-kun! During the interview, we asked about "how he met with Chiko" and "comfort". You can really feel the affection Saga-kun bears toward Chiko!!

「When Heaven Burns」(TVB Drama) ... and the meaning of true friendship





And so last night was the final episode of this drama series I've been following... and it really is a touching story. It's so engaging, and really makes you truly think "So who are my true friends?" "Am I really who I want to be?".
