I wrote this in an email to [livejournal.com profile] honeycorrupts and thought... why the hell not post it on my journal.  It will remind me to write people who need to be written.  I missed some parts and just guessed at others because he talks so damn fast.  :/  But you get the idea.  F-list の皆さん、大好きです!

"You guys are probably really shocked, but actually the person most shocked is me. ...
This year's theme is 'Vow'.  When I thought about it, I remembered these words.  Four years ago, in this very place, Aiba-kun said, "We have to get to the top."  In order to make those words come true, these last few years we've worked our asses off (or something to that effect). ...
If it wasn't for these four people, I wouldn't have been able to do it.

"Leader: thank you for being the one to look after the four of us.  It really hurts to be alone, you're able to screw around with us ... and that's why you're the leader.  That's what I've always thought.
Leader, I'm glad I met you. (And I swear he sounds choked up here~~)

"Sho-kun: you really are a person who can read the atmosphere, whether it's violent or stupid.  Only a really smart person could do that.  And so, for the sake of everyone, just follow your big heart. 
Sho-kun, I'm glad I met you.

"Aiba-kun: we're always together, aren't we?  Always, always.  You make us terribly worried sometimes for your safety so when I heard you were going to do a variety show on your own, I was a bit anxious, but you've become a person who won't fail and you've given it all you've got.  Just follow your self truly in your work. (?)
Aiba-kun, I'm glad I met you.

"Jun-kun: when I first me you, I thought you were cool and scary but you are actually a warm person.  You more warm and gentle than ten gentle people combined.  Just follow that warmth.
Jun-kun, I'm glad I met you.

"Of course, these five people meeting unexpectedly and after ten years, this is our pride.  ...  Arashi is something like that.  Lastly, making programs and records together til the end, supporting each other during the busy times til the end, waiting for each other at the homes we've made til the end, always aiding each other til the end.

"The six people of Arashi: I love you.

"I'm so grateful, thank you.   --Ninomiya Kazunari"

... Who is the 6th person?  Or.. 5th and 6th since I don't think he's thanking himself.  Sho says something about the staff and crew so maybe that's it.  Managers?  Anyway.  So sweet. 

Edit:  Better translation here.  Thanks [livejournal.com profile] waxrose!

Someone posted a translation over here, so in the end, he's basically referring to everyone who has supported them, staff and friends.

It's a really nice, simple and sweet letter. I was tearing up. :DDD

It was. Ahh I was a bit hit and miss with my attempt but it's hard. I understand the meaning of it even without getting all the words... it's hard to translate. :/ That's why I can't do TV. I need to see it in print!

GAH It's 3pm and I've done NOTHING. I am organizing my new day planner... writing in birthdays and such so I can go out and buy a shitton of cards. Sept is my big birthday month.

Headache. Slept too much. Maybe I'll write some fic while I'm out too. Old school like: pen and paper.

Does everyone write a letter? Because I've only heard about Aiba's during their previous appearance, and now Nino's.

I don't think it's a 24HTV thing, just an Arashi thing. I remember reading an article or seeing an interview about it and they were asked if there was going to be another letter and they said no. And they did look surprised when they said Nino wrote one. They're big saps. Then after filming they went out and had a big sleepover-orgy. You know it.

There needs to be a behind the scene's footage of that, you know. Maybe a special, I'm pretty sure Johnny would agree if we all asked nicely.

thank you~~

The only thing that kept me from tearing up at that letter was, Nino's non existent tears! Why were there no tears?! He looks so pretty when he cries. And yet again all of Arashi was tearing up or at least had wet eyes that made you want to hug them. Damn you, you imp!

Another thing, since both Nino and Aiba have said many times that they hang out privately, why is Aiba the only one he calls -san. and with his last name as well. Sho is Sho, Jun is Jun, Ohno is either Riida or Ohno-kun ( i think ).
