I may be not the only Arashian who have started from International fandom right away. Yes, it's true, rather than pimped by a close friend or anyone I met in real life, I was baited by finding Arashi through the web. So, for any newbie in Arashi fandom, you may have a bunch of questions on how the Arashian's living or what will you get from fandom. Well, yes. These posts may helped you a little.
Need to pimp your friend to Arashi? There are some useful pimp posts out there.

It's also better to check these posts first :
1. Arashi Fandom Guide on Livejournal by nicefinalbeam.--> This is a good post for starter on Livejournal. You'll find the basic rules in fandom to make sure you take the right step ahead.
2. Helpful links & Resources by acidae at arashi_on.--> A great guide to find the right place for the right things you looking for. Useful to know any other communities active in fandom.
Suggestions : Well, it's better for anyone new in Arashi Fandom on Livejournal to join general communities like arashi_on or a_ra_shi, to get latest news/update from other communities or personal journals related to Arashi. Don't worry, the memberships for the two communities are open (and we hope will always be).
Have a nice fandom life! <3
