Hikki is more devastated about her mother's death than you might think. Mourning over someone who died of natural causes is very much different from mourning over someone who committed suicide. The shock and stress is unbearable, though I cannot say that I have personal experience. As Hikki said in her statement, her mother had a history of mental illness. I don't think Keiko Fuji was aware of her own actions when she jumped. She had a horrible death. She didn't leave this world peacefully. Her death left a deep scar in Hikki's memory of her. In her words " then again her last act was so sad that a sense of remorse cannot stop welling up inside of me."

Hikki needs her fans now more than ever in these trying times. She needs us now. She needs our support. We are more important to her than you might think. She loves her fans as much as we love her. She's given us so much happiness. What can we give back? Ask yourself what we can do for her as fans? Letters, drawings, videos.

Now comes the question of getting our message to reach her. I'm not too sure about the address for EMI Japan's office:

EMI Music Japan Inc.
Akasaka Biz Tower 27F
5-3-1, Akasaka
Minato-ku, 107-6327
Tokyo, Japan

Can anyone confirm this? I asked my friend who knows, but she hasn't replied.

And I already send three thousand billion tweet to cheer her up!

I'll send fanmails into the fan mail adress given there soon as I get a little money to send mail!!! :)

Hikki's staff observers all the tweets about Utada Hikaru, the least we can do for her is tweet about her at least once a day. Please, minna, show our support...

For every of her fans, the late Utada Junko will forever be remembered for her stellar performances that makes her illustrious singing career in her early years special in so many ways.

For Hikki, every fans share your grief in this time of bereavement with deepest sympathy and condolence. Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. Although no words can really help to ease the loss you bear, just know that you are very close in every thoughts and prayers. Hold tight to memories for comfort, lean on your friends for strength, and always remember how much you are cared about. May the peace that comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.

The days ahead are the most difficult moments for Hikki and her family.

Inevitably, the media’s involvement and harrowing coverage will be heightened and hopefully subside soon. This is especially when the nature of the incident and this period of bereavement is causing much grief to Hikki and her father.

Browsing through Teruzane and Hikki’s statements, one cannot help but be overwhelm by empathy, grief and deep emotions. It must be traumatizing for both of them to come to this juncture of disclosing the most distressful part of their life journey to the media, public and fans over the world.

It's heartwarming and saddening, however it does have its finer points as their joint statements not only clarify one’s perspective on this incident but also takes one into an deeper insight into the themes of growth, rapport, endurance and shared loneliness while highlighting the constancy and significance in familial relationship.

Although most lyrics in songs often leave much room for varying degree of interpretation but many also leave a string of metaphoric, profound and heartfelt messages. Here’s a recap on the lyrics of Hikki’s recently composed song “Arashi no Megami”.

ayaka just released an album covering songs of various artistes and she also did a cover on Hikki’s “Movin’ on without you”. She also covered “Manatsu no Kaijitsu” by Southern all Star which is an especially evocative piece in both it’s lyrics and melody.

Arashi no Megami

The storm goddess is no match for you

Searching for something to fill the void in your heart
You took countless of detours

Why do we forget that
We were raised with so much love?

The wind after a storm smells like you

Walk along the storm’s path and come home
A little corner of this hectic world

If acceptance equals love
Then what is ‘forgiveness’?

Surely it means to give, not to receive
Why was I just waiting around?

Mother, I want to see you

We can understand each other because we are alive
I can express it now, my honest gratitude

I have never seen such a blue sky before

Pick me up and welcome me home
Wish me goodnight in my little bed

Manatsu no Kaijitsu

During this sad season when tears overflow
I dream of being embraced by someone

I can't express this feeling that makes me want to cry
Even tonight the cold rain falls

My patience has been reduced to nothing but a sigh
Even now, summer is returning to my heart

Say that you love me any time of the day
Follow me into my dream
Unforgettable heart and soul
I can't put it into words

The names written in the sand have been erased
Where are the waves returning?
Love and roll are passing through
Love becomes like that

Like looking at a -100 degrees sun
This love wets my body

A dizzying midsummer's fruit
Is ripening in my heart even now

Even if we're far apart, at twilight
Traces of passion batter my chest

Say that you love me any time of the day
Follow me into my dream
Unforgettable heart and soul
The night won't wait

The names written in the sand have been erased
Where are the waves returning?
Love and roll are passing through
Love becomes like that

Tonight I will not show any tears
I hope you'll say we'll meet again
Unforgettable heart and soul
The fruit of tears

Hi sbcxbz,

Eloquent, passionate, and clearly an authority on all things Hikki..


http://www.youtube.com/user/sbcxbz?feature=c4-feed-c

Arashi no Megami is a poignant reminder of reality colliding with hindsight.

I have dispatched a little "tu es loin de moi mais tu es la dans mon coeur" to Hikki and Mr T...

Below is a Tweet From Mr T with reference to ITF but more importantly one Max Hole ...

それも要因のひとつですが、Max Holeさんの尽力が多大です。teruzane RT @jack_m_s n The Fleshのリリースが進んだのは、EMIとユニバーサルが合併したからなのですか?


If say 10% of Hikki 1.32m Tweeter followers send condolences to EMI Music Japan Inc, over 130 odd thousand associated pieces of correspondence has to be sorted.

My plan B ...send to

Max Hole ...

I could wax lyrical, this is the "open sesame" approach ..after all, it paid dividends for Ali Baba

I sent a message from her website, let's hope she gets it.

Thoughts are with her at present. I can relate in losing a loved one like a grandparent, but a parent is a another level completely.

=[

I hope that she deals with it in her own way <3
