~* A letter from Mori to SMAP *~

SMAPのみんなへ。森且行
To SMAP. Mori Katsuyuki.

5人で27時間テレビをやると聞いた時、凄いなって思いました。
When I heard you will host 27 Hours TV, I thought you guys are amazing.

今頃ライブが終わってクタクタになってるんじゃないかな。
Your live performance must be over by now and you're all must be very tired now.

僕がSMAPをやめてから18年が経ちました。
It has been 18 years since I quit SMAP.

あのとき、あんな無茶なことを言ったのに、受け入れてくれて、暖かく送り出してくれたみんなに本当に感謝しています。
I said such a selfish thing that time and yet you accepted it, and you saw me off kindly. I'm really grateful to you guys.

スマスマで最後の撮影をして、みんなで四谷の焼き肉屋で乾杯して、明け方外に出て、全員でカメラに向けてお尻だして写真撮ったよね。強烈に覚えています。
After we shot my last SmaSma, we went to a yakiniku place at Yotsuya, had a toast and we walked out of the place at dawn. We took a picture, facing the camera, showing our butts. I clearly remember.

あれが6人で最後のSMAP。
That was the last 6-man SMAP moment.


【慎吾へ】
To Shingo

初めて会ったとき、慎吾はすっごい子供で、本当の弟みたいで。
From the first time I met you, you're such a little boy. You're really like my little brother for me.

生意気だなって思う時期もあったけど、ずっとかわいかった。
There were times when I thought you're so cheeky, but you're always cute.

でも、あんなやんちゃでかわいかった慎吾が、今テレビで見ると堂々として頼もしいよ。
You were very naughty and cute, but now you're so reliable when you appear on TV.

凄いな、慎吾。
You're amazing, Shingo.

【剛へ】
To Tsuyoshi.

剛とは帰る方向がいつも一緒で、一番話したかもな。
We always went home through the same way, I must have talked with you the most.

一緒に電車で帰るときも、剛がバク転出来るのうらやましくて、ホームで何度もバク中やらせたりしてたよな。
When we went home together by train, I envy you who's so good at backflip, so I made you do it a few times at the platform.

あ、俺、SMAPやめてから唯一見た映画。剛の「バラッド」。良かったよ。
Oh, the one and only movie I saw ever since I quit SMAP was Tsuyoshi's "BALLAD." It was great.

それと、バイク乗り始めたんだってな。
And I heard you start riding motor bike.

趣味としてはいいけど、絶対安全運転。気をつけてな。
It's good for your hobby but ride safely. Be careful.

【吾郎ちゃん】
To Goro-chan.

俺がSMAPやめて養成所に入る前日。
The day before I enter training school after I quit SMAP.

みんなが俺の家に集まって、バリカンで頭を刈ってくれたんだよね。
Everyone gathered at my house and shaved my head.

吾郎ちゃん以外。
Except you.

そういうところが吾郎ちゃんらしくて、すごく好き。
That was just really something you'd do and that's what I love about you.

中居君、木村君と剛と慎吾に挟まれて、昔だったら俺も吾郎ちゃんと同じところにいたんだけど、真ん中にいるって大変だと思う。
Long ago, together with you, we were in the middle between Nakai-kun-Kimura-kun and Tsuyoshi-Shingo. It's hard to be in the middle.

だけど、吾郎ちゃんがいるから、SMAPはSMAPでいられると思うよ。
But because of you, SMAP can stay SMAP.

これからも吾郎ちゃんらしくね。
Please continue to be yourself.

【木村くん】
To Kimura-kun.

木村君はね、メンバーの中で遊んだ回数が一番多いかも。
I think I hang out with you the most.

木村君は、最初に会った時から格好良くて、一緒に遊んでても格好良くて、仕事してても格好良くて。
The first time I met you, you were so cool. You're so cool when I hang out with you. You're so cool when you're working.

あのときから今でもずっとずっと格好いい。
You're always cool now and then.

すごいよ。
Amazing.

辞めたら、怖い存在になってほしいと言ってくれた言葉。
You told me, "If you quit then I want you to be unbeatable."

忘れないよ。
I will never forget those words.

【中居君】
To Nakai-kun.

中居君には一番いろんな事を教わって、そして一番迷惑をかけた。
I learned about things the most from you. And I give you trouble the most.

辞めると決めてから、ずっと心配してくれてずっと面倒見てくれて。
After I decided to quit, you always worried about me and you always watch my back.

ありがとう。
Thank you.

記者会見も一緒に出てくれてありがとう。
Thank you for coming to my press conference too.

辞める最後の最後までリーダーとして面倒見てくれてありがとう。
You were watching over me as a leader until the very last moment, thank you.

スマスマの5人旅、見たよ。
I saw the SmaSma 5-Men Journey.

カラオケで最後にベストフレンド歌って、泣いてくれてありがとう。
Thank you for crying when you sang BEST FRIEND in karaoke.

本当にありがとう。感謝しています。
Really, thank you so much. I'm really grateful.

SMAP。
SMAP.

僕の友だちは5人以外にいません。
I have no other friends besides the five of you.

SMAP最高。森且行
SMAP is the best. Mori Katsuyuki.

=END=

Nandeeee???? You have your fellow auto racer friends deshoooo??? Why are your friends only these five guysss??? I cried buckets at this sentence.... hwaaaaaa, Mori-kuuuun T_T

Nakai and Shingo were the closest ones with Mori, as far as I know. I can understand why Nakai said he feels like dying everytime he listen to BEST FRIEND XD

Mori talked about SMAP in the pachinko talk event yesterday. He talked about how a few months after he quit SMAP, he suffered big injury during a race and had to be hospitalized. In the hospital room, he put three framed pictures: Shingo-alone picture, 5-men SMAP picture and Mori's family picture T_T

Enough, I need to squeeze out my teary eyes now.

I watched the video of this moment for the third time while reading your translation and I broke down again. ;;

It feels so sad and yet so sweet.

Yanie-san, thank you so much <3
I also hope that he got other friends beside these 5 guys.

"In the hospital room, he put three framed pictures: Shingo-alone picture, 5-men SMAP picture and Mori's family picture T_T"
I imagined him being alone in this room and it's must have been sad :'(.

Thank you very much for translating Mori's letter. Like others I began to cried during the SmaSma 5-Men Journey part too, since it mentioned the singing BEST FRIEND part. I still remember how sad Nakai's cry was during that part *sniff*

Mori has to win big, for himself, and then come back to SMAP!

Thank you for the translation of his beautiful letter!

Seeing this live at a time where everybody was sleeping in my house, I was crying so loud (that was awful). Just like Shingo said at the end Mori's letter was "dame", totally devastating, the words came during the most strenuous moment for them in the show, a dramatic ending, it was totally unnexpected and they actually sang Best friend before that.
I'm reading again and i'm sobbing, I feel this will STAY like this for a long time, just like when I see Mori's last footage or Nakai crying during best friend's karaoke.
Thanks a lot for sharing, this letter means the world for Smap fans <33

Thanks for translating this letter, a totally emotional moment.
I'm not able to get all the transmission but around when this part was aired? Before the nonstop medley or at the ending?

Thanks so much for translating this really touching letter. :)
Poor Mori kun. :( But I understand what he means by only having them 5 for friends, he spent so much time with them.
