It’s that time of year again! For those who are new to this: Johnny’s releases calendars for their artists every year, but according to the school year: that is, from April of this year to March of the next. All calendars are around 2000 yen and go on sale late February or early March. (Only Arashi and groups that debuted afterwards have calendars – so for big fans of V6, Kinki, or SMAP, sorry.)
You can watch the news clip to see everything, but if you are lazy/your internet is slow/youtube takes down the file, I’ve summarized everything below with available online purchase links. (Remember: Yesasia jacks up the prices, but calendar shipping is pricy – around $20USD to get to North America. Play around with it to see which is cheapest for you.)
Arashi: A thick 125-page planner-calendar plus a large 7-page poster wall calendar filled with gorgeous, sexy member photos shot by Mika Ninagawa. Oh, and holographic stickers as an extra.
NEWS: A pink binder that can have pages removed to fold out into strip calendars – with about 3 standard paper sheets’ of a photo folding out under a calendar. Also comes with a large poster.
If you have no strong bias for a Johnny’s group but want a Johnny’s school calendar, I would reccommend you to GET THE ARASHI ONE. They’re one of the most popular groups in Japan right now and it’s their ten year anniversary – when else is JE going to spend this much effort designing a calendar again? The calendars are generally pretty nice this year but Arashi really just outdoes it, and if anything, that wall-poster (see right) is well worth it.
