A lot of people have been asking me where/how I got my mini Arashi desktop buddies (shimeji) and so I decided to make a little tutorial on where to get them. (it’s pretty simple).
First, here are some links to download them:
*EDITED* (hope it works now) http://masaki82.livejournal.com/5363.html (click on the link in the first comment) or http://filetram.com/mediafire/arashi-shimeji-zip-8807847467 (first two links don’t work anymore) or here - Lots of Arashi shimeji - double parka sho, kaibutsu-kun, nino, aiba in overalls, and come back to me jun

http://www.mediafire.com/?6zqet59ha9f6nio - Separate come back to me Jun
If anybody has any other links to download them, please share by either reblogging this with your link or tell me so I can add it :) (I know there are more out there!)
After you download one of these shimejis, unzip the file (with winrar or 7zip, etc etc). Once the file is unzipped, click on the folder and then click on “shimeji.exe” and after a few seconds your shimeji should fallliterallyonto your desktop.
For this to work though, you do need to have java installed onto your computer!
Also as a note, I heard that mac users sometimes have more problems with this program. I’m not a mac user so I unfortunately can’t help if that is the issue ^^;
Want to stop using the shimeji?
The shimejis do take up space on your computer while running so if you ever want to close them right click on their icon on your taskbar (sometimes located in the “hidden icon” section) and then go down to the 5th option underneath the “IE” option (mine only shows blocks because my computer only reads some Japanese). This will stop the program. If you ever want to use the shimeji again, just click on the “shimeji.exe” file.
Too many shimeji?
Sometimes the shimeji multiply like rabbitsespecially when you have Sakumoto on there togetherand if you want to get rid of a few, just right click on one of them and click the “baibai” option (the only option).
If you have any other questions, just send me an ask and I can hopefully answer it ^^
I’m still looking for the magical song aiba, green shirt aiba and red shirt sho. If you know where I can get them, please let me know! Thanks! :D
