If you want to know what Kodansha is, click here for its wiki article. Essentially, it is the big MNC that owns Shuukan Gendai which published the photos you saw in the previous article. For other bloggers' reports on this CRAZY incident, try Uwasako or Fybabe. Much more efficient than me who's moving around w/o a laptop half the time. Kudos to WOOYINGZHI (^_^) for sending me an email to update this.
For now, I will just translate this article from Entame, dated today, 29th July 2008.
The scandal involving Arashi's leader, Satoshi Ohno (27) has not yet ceased. Reports of the scandal were to be found even in China and Korea and fans all around voiced their disappointment in his (past) actions.
In response to the scandal, Johnny's has insisted that Ohno has definitely NOT done Marijuana, and has decided not to do business not only with Shuukan Gendai, but with the whole of Kodansha itself.
Oh dear I must be too tired!!! I just realised that Uwasako has translated the exact same article!! O_O Sorry folks, school and life getting to my head. Once again, please see Uwasako to follow-up on this exciting and crazy development!
