Meiji University To Offer A Course on Boy Band Arashi

posted on by Bamboo Dong

The prestigious Meiji University, a private institution located in Tokyo, is offering a class on the boy band, Arashi. While this marks the first time the class will be devoted to Arashi, the class itself, a study in social psychology, has been offered for twenty years. Due to students' demands for a study on sexuality, the course has also previously discussed the band SMAP. This year's course comes at a good time—Arashi is celebrating their 15th anniversary, having debuted in 1999.

According to the syllabus, the following topics will be covered:

  1. Introduction - Arashi's Era
  2. The Culture of Johnny's Entertainment
  3. Before Arashi, focusing on SMAP
  4. Changes in Arashi's PVs - Before the big break
  5. Changes in Arashi's PVs - After the big break
  6. A comparison of the members of Arashi
  7. Arashi members as they appear on variety shows
  8. Arashi in dramas
  9. Arashi in concert
  10. Arashi and J-Pop
  11. Arashi and K-Pop
  12. Johnny's Entertainment post-Arashi
  13. Overview on the Era of Arashi
  14. Test

For the rest of us, it seems like we'll be confined to studying Arashi PVs on our own.
