Arashi Obsession Quiz

In the past few years/months, the Arashi fanbase has been steadily growing. From the few overseas fans the band has garnered since they debuted in 1999, the fanbase in Asia and all over the world has grown to unexpected numbers. What with Arashi's (recurring!) Asia tour and Sho's Yatterman promotion in the US, it can be safe to say that Arashi isn't going anywhere, and neither are its fans!

I don't believe that the amount of time you've spent in a fandom is necessarily mirrored in how obsessed you are about it. After all, there are some fans who give it their all even when they're just starting out. This quiz was made to measure just how obsessed you are with the Japanese boy band, Arashi. It in no way aims to imply that there are "lesser" fans or "true" fans. It just measures how obsessed you are. Necessarily, there will be questions about Arashi's history, real-life application, general behavior, and internet application of the obsession. The test is 45 items, so it might take a while, but rest assured, the results are (okay, sort of) reliable :)
