Happy Tenth Anniversary, NEWS.

Dear NEWS,

Happy tenth anniversary. This is late, I know. It feels bittersweet that you've come to this milestone while I have been drifting further and further away from you during the last few years. I barely listen to your songs anymore. I didn't see your anniversary video during the designated day. Actually I haven't seen it at all. #badfan

I originally created this journal because of you. I started writing fanfics again (and got pretty serious at it, joining exchanges and challenges and all) because of you. I made some really good friends because of you. You entertained me and filled my days with happiness.

I first got to know you after you were already six, so I didn't go through the journey of watching you turn from nine to eight to six. But when you turned from six to four, I was still there, and my heart broke too. (I was angry for a long time, I'd understand if you were too.)

But then you emerged, stronger, more dedicated and more united than ever. You've grown so much and I'm really proud of all of you. Shige, you get a special mention because you achieved your personal dreams and inspired me to achieve mine.

I haven't really followed your updates lately, but recently I watched your appearance in Shounen Club Premium. I had a stupid smile on my face the entire time. I may not be completely invested in you anymore, but I believe in different kinds of love. You've carved a special place in my heart, and there you will stay. I wish you continued and better success, because you deserve it.

And if someday, years and years from now, someone miraculously convinced you the way they convinced L'Arc~en~Ciel to finally hold a concert in my country, I hope I'll be there to see you.

Happy anniversary, and may you have many, many more anniversaries in the future.

This has made me smile like a loon ;)

Happy tenth to NEWS, and just so you don't feel so lonesome with the #badfan tag, I actually haven't seen the video either.
Still equally happy for the boys, because they're forever awesome, right?

Appropriate icon! :D

LOL, I thought I was the only one. But I still have fond feelings for those four no matter what. <3

Late comment is late, but still ^^
Definitely agreed with everything you said in this post. I also had a stupid smile on my face listening the SCP version of "Cherish." Can't believe it. It's amazing!

It was both Cherish and Nagisa no Oneesama for me. The latter even more so, but that's probably because I'd never heard the song in its entirety or watched a performance of it until SCP. It's ridiculously cute ^^
