the wonderful faces of Arashi :D

Are you ready?
Are you having fun?
Are you hungry?
Are you Awashians? (Arashians)
Are you happy?

So we got it done finally lol. With a lot of procrastinations and distraction we got it out finally hahah!

Anyways here are the subbed, (kanji, romaji & translations included) concert videos. We have disc 1 and disc 2 for the concert and a 'disc 3' documentary showcasing the behind the scenes of the making of Are You Happy. This time around we don't have the traditional rotational 'member camera' where the members record each other throughout the behind the scenes of each concert, where it's more transparent and intimate. Instead we get to see the back story and journey heading towards the concert. But anyway nothing surprising there, the concert did seem a little rushed and they themselves kept saying they didn't have time so they wouldn't have the time and any leisure of strolling around with a camera in their hands plus with all their schedules catching up to them. Well though can't lie I was a little disappointed, I don't really mind since we can really see how genuinely they work hard to make the concert happen, and if not, as greatly and as true to themselves as they can, as far as the theme of this album this time around. To quote how Jun placed it, "It's a concert that is made up of, firstly how each member faces Arashi" So in a way, it did feel more 'transparent' and genuine to who they are, just human. I mean when you're worked everyday of the week, squeezed out of your strength to make others happy, the question would pop to you instead, "Are you happy?". And while there might be hard times they find the comfort through each other and really, at the end of the day through being able to make others feel happy as well. Which is why I find the concert this time around really beautiful.

Lol, long rant. About the subs btw, I had asked Kizu to time the lyrics a little faster so it'll be easier for anyone, it was for us really, to sing along if you'd like. I liked disc 1 better a lot of my fav songs were on there, daymn Nino's solo! But disc 2's got Seishun Boogie and darn that song was cute hahah! Anything, comments, feedbacks, critics are appreciated :D So are mirrors lol since I heard some people can't do MEGA. You guys would be helping a fellow Arashian out <3

some cute moments
So here it is. Do enjoy it! And always be on the look out of anyone who's not the main focus of the camera, they be doing some cute things at the back lol

BIG THANKS to those who helped out! The team were as usual, me Haruki, as the translator and kicyukizu as a loyal timer.

RAW Provider
Disc 1 & 3 are from the wonderful lio_neko via lionekotreasure
And disc 2 is from the incredible dipropylene via chesutosakurai (chesutosakurai's got some HD 1080p raws if you guys are interested)

If you guys haven't gotten your raws yall can visit any of the above comms or arashigoodies have got them as well.
Also, thanks to everyone who helped and point me to the raws and even offered to rip their DVDs for me T_T I love yall <3
ALSO, I learnt how to encode :DDDD with the tutorial from the awesome school of subbing sub_sub_gakkou. Do give them a visit if yall got time, they're awesome!

PASSWORD HERE So I decided to give out both hardsub and softsubs but since this is english subs so primarily this is aimed for english speakers and thus english readers at which I am trying to make this at least a little harder for anyone here who might be here just to steal the content. And so you will find the decryption keys for the hardsub version under the mirrors welcomed cut and for those who want the softsubs, (since I know some of you already have the raws and now just need the subs) the softsub link is also under the same cut, and the decryption link is available on this site. Again do understand I have to make this harder and increase the effort for those who aren't here to actually read and understand my 'rules' if you may, and are just here to click download and share our work elsewhere. We worked hard for this so we don't need anyone not respecting our work :) So the password for that site is, in this same order, in lowercase, the last name of the members Aiba Masaki, Matsumoto Jun, Ninomiya Kazunari, Ohno Satoshi and Sakurai Sho ;) DO NOT redistribute the file guys. You can edit the timing so it fits your raws though. Thanks for understanding guys <3
