Hachi, I’ve decided to leave Japan and travel overseas. With all of the chaos going on with SEARCH and my birth mother, I can’t sing well anymore here. The pressure from the media is stifling my voice and making it impossible for me to go a day or two without hyperventilating.
But it’s okay. I’m used to not having a home or a family. Who knows, maybe this will be a good thing for me. I moved to Tokyo and met you, Hachi. And who knows, maybe I’ll be able to sing better in England, the home of the Sex Pistols.
I’ll miss you, Hachi. I hope you don’t take this as a break-up letter, but rather a fierce love letter because when I make it as a solo artist, I’ll come back for you.
