Calling on all fangirls. Help pls.

Hey guys, I'm currently working on a project for school and I need all the help I can get. I have to create a group tour, it can be anywhere and be any obviously, I thought it would be fun to incorporate Arashi into my school work.

So I've decided to do and Arashi Japan tour. I've written up a short survey to help me produce the perfect (but sadly fictional) Arashi fan tour. So if you have the time please go to:
and leave a comment with your answers as I would greatly appreciate feedback from you all.

Maou Mail #8

There was one line, about the staff member's his own age that I didn't quite get, so I guessed. X3

どうも魔王でーす!撮影も後半に入ってきました!僕も忙しいですが、魔王スタッフの皆さんの忙しさは半端じゃないですよー!僕のシーンだけじゃなく全出演 者のシーンも撮ってるし、寝る時間もあまりないしで、しかも僕と同い年のスタッフさんも何人かいたりで、僕も負けてられないですネ!頑張ります!

Hello, it's Maou~!  We've already entered into the second half of filming!  Even though I'm really busy, it's not even a fraction of how busy everyone of the Maou staff are!  They aren't only shooting my scenes, but the entire cast's and they don't get much time to sleep either.  Moreover I don't even know how many staff are the same age as me, I can't lose either!  I'll do my best!
So, episode 8!  Finally unable take the pressure, Ryou's feelings towards Shiori will overflow!  Will the revenge plan be able to continue nevertheless?  And what's more, Naoto starts to be aware of Ryou's true colours!  Look forward to it!

They usually post this information over at, but if you're like me, and you can't wait for the episode to be uploaded, there is a Japanese website that streams Japanese TV shows. All the Maou episodes are uploaded there. these are the links for episode 8:

If you want the other episodes, just use the search box at the top right hand corner of the website and enter: 魔王

That'll give you the list of not only the episodes, but a few short specials/interviews on Maou as well. Enjoy!

Opus Dei [Maou]: The *angst* opv with soul.

I'm a bit new to Arashi fandom, but I've learned to really appreciate Ohno's acting skills in Maou and thus the OPV Opus Dei was born. I only release fanvideos about twice a year under the name of Solstice Productions so I always try to make them really count. With this release I've aimed to focus solely on Naruse and Naoto, with that amplified the angst and the "good vs evil" theme. I'm using a music score by Coldplay [Viva la Vida].

The video can be viewed online (streaming) @ kewego.

The video can also be downloaded:
