[MOD] Arashi Update!

It seems like while some of us do seem to know a lot about what's going on with Arashi lately, the majority of the community don't, so I'm going to try to come up with a solution. Maybe around once every one or two months, I'll make an update post, catching people up on the activities and stuff that Arashi are involved in. I'll try to add as much information as possible, and people are more than welcome to include their own information. So here's what I've got so far:

Sakurai Sho - "THE SHOW'
