 I just had to blog about this.

I've been reading on Tokyohive and some blogs on Tumblr that Arashi fans are hating on AKB48's new single Beginner because they beat Arashi's sales for Monster. So I wanted to know if the Arashi fandom has been whining about the competition, but I've checked most of the comms and my friends' journals (who are also Arashi fans) but haven't found any "hate".

I hope this gets cleared out because its giving Arashi fans such negative press :(

The article on Tokyohive here. Please read the comments D:

I think they can refer to Japaneses fans? I don't know either. I'm really disappointed because the sales of the guys are so good even without cheating (with ABK48 singles you can get handshakes with the girls and stuff like that) but what we can do? The only way to help our guys is to buy their singles...

I really want them to be number one at everything they'll release. I think the bad press that's happening on the net about us Arashi fans is just sad because I don't know anyone in the fandom online who'd actually bring so much hate against AKB48.

Altho competition is always good and I hope this will bring out even better singles from ARASHI ^u^/

I'm not so sure about the hate either, but it's a bit sad that they might not get number one this year, judging from AKB48's weekly sales.

When I heard the news about the new single selling insanely high I just ignored it because I didn't want it to affect me that much :P Anyways I'll keep on supporting Arashi in whatever they do and just keep in mind that I love them not because they are popular or because they are selling well. I love them because they are Arashi :-)

Its crazy that the music chart everywhere seem to be a battle between ARASHI and AKB48 XD I love these boys to death and I know that they don't need to prove anything too to be considered number one. I think they've achieved enough to earn a permanent place in people's hearts :)
