I myself got the chance to watch this movie right in the cinema months ago, and I have been so excited waiting for the DVD to came out.
My Japanese itself isn't that perfect yet, but I feel like I get what the director and the writers wants to convey in this movie, so here I'm going to pour my opinion of the story and their reasons of their actions.
I could be wrong, or misinterpret, this is all my opinion from how I see the movie.
This contains heavy spoiler, and please keep in mind that I didn't read the novel, so this is purely my rough interpretation from the movie.
I would love to hear and discuss if you have different opinion :D
Being together all those years and seeing how Gocchi standing tall in the light, probably making Riva-chan looking up at him in all different meaning, whether it's good or bad. He see Gocchi as the perfect example of a popular man, totally opposite of him in his eye. As they keep getting further in terms of popularity, this drop Riva-chan's confidence even more than before. And inside his heart, even he looked like he hate how Gocchi leave him alone into the popularity, he adore such world and Gocchi who actually able to enter there. many times Gocchi actually tried to take Riva-chan with him since he also believe in Riva-chan's strength, but Riva-chan's lack of self-confidence hinder him, and he is over-conscious over Gocchi's presence.
But the most important part here isn't how Riva-chan sees the showbiz world, but how he sees Gocchi. By time, he feels like he getting separated from Gocchi not just by distance, but by heart too. Like when he saw the song Gocchi sing on TV, he feel like it's not the kind of song "His" Gocchi will sing.
He started to feel like he didn't know about Gocchi anymore.
That's why when they get the chance to meet again and have a talk in the reunion and Riva-chan see how Gocchi still act like how he usually is to him, he feels relieved and happy that he thought he got his old Gocchi back.
The reason Gocchi ask Riva-chan to choose his deathwish, was because he think "If it's Riva-chan then he'll surely knows (about me)."
They have this kind of thought where they thought they know about each other the best.
But then, after Riva-chan do what Gocchi ask him to do after his death and 're-act' his life by acting as Gocchi in the movie, plus people's pressure on him as the 'replacement' for Gocchi putting Riva-chan under heavy mind pressure. He who always looked up the place where Gocchi stood, but when he actually stood there he couldn't bear with all the pressure that he 'have to be Gocchi' and not as himself. And by standing in the place where Gocchi have been without him all those time, he get to see and feel many things he didn't know about Gocchi before. Making him thinking "Do I really know what kind of person Gocchi is?"
When you have been declaring each other as your best friend and suddenly given such realization, Riva-chan got some kind of panic attack, and didn't know anymore what is right and what is wrong. his heart is shattered by all the revealation about Gocchi in the showbiz that he never knew. He started to feel he didn't know about Gocchi at all, all this time. Including the reason for his suicide.
After he watch Gocchi's old taken video of his sister and somehow got the hint of what Gocchi has been feeling that he never knew about, he actually tried to do what Gocchi done, doing suicide, in the very same place. In which he failed. He wanted to know, what was Gocchi's feeling.
In the last talk between Riva and Gocchi, Gocchi said, "Riva-chan surely understand the reason." in which Riva-chan desperately deny it with so much regret and dissappointment. The whole point of it, was how Gocchi convincing Riva-chan that it's okay even if they didn't know everything about each other, it's okay that way, because they're different person. Gocchi trying to show Riva-chan that the person who became their living reason is different. For Gocchi it was his sister, while Gocchi trying to show Riva-chan that it was Sally for his case.
What I catch here in the last scene was that Gocchi trying to make Riva-chan realize that he shouldn't live with him (Gocchi) as his aim or anything, but focus on the person he cares about, Sally.
It was such a confusing and bumpy road, but that's how I catch what the movie trying to deliver. About the 2 boys friendship, and how it affected their lifes. But still, the most important line is the relationship between Riva-chan and Gocchi. Many times they do things with thought "Because I know him best" but more than often too they thought "He didn't know anything about me" and get upset with themselves.
But in the end, they realize that it's okay like that. They didn't have to know EVERYTHING there is about each other.

( IKEBUKURO IS DISGUISED HELLCollapse )
JUMP's next tour has been announced, and both of the Yokohama Arena period is in my school holiday! Planning to go watch once for each YokoAri, wish me luck for my first JUMP concert >
It's been a while since I update this LJ thanks to my school and part-time that really time and energy consuming ><
Although maybe some of you is kinda in a confused or bad mood (maybe?) because of Yuto's sudden scandal(?) (if that really is him, I'm still waiting for further confirmation myself but that's not the point of this post), I'm here to share Keiji Ballerino's making that I rip myself from my DVD :)
If any of you haven't got the chance to watch it, enjoy Yuto doing ballet, being a dork, cutie, and 'hot' scene X3
P.S : I wish I could sub this, but I still have no time so please don't put hope to much on me for the time being ><
As usual, please don't re-share or re-post this video anywhere else. Just link the person to this LJ (LJ, not the direct download link) if you want to share this :)

I'll be living in a dorm, doing intern in restaurant for the first 3 months then continue as part-times there for the rest of the school period, so I don't know how busy I'll be for the next year, or how accessible I will be to the internet and my usual download website source ><
One thing for sure, I probably couldn't continue my Waiwai JUMP scanlation while I'm staying there, since I didn't have any portable scanner at the moment, so it's a definite hiatus (or if by miracle I buy a scanner while I'm staying there?).
I'll still try to be active in the subbing community I'm part of, and probably still being noisy translating bits and stuffs in my twitter, so yeah I'll try not to looked dead too much XD
What I'm really excited about is the fact that I'll be able to watch Pink to Gray right on the premier day!!! I have googled and just a few blocks from my school there's mall with Toho Cinema! And since I'll be living in Tochigi, which is outside Tokyo and a little bit more rural than the big cities like Tokyo, I'm hoping I could get the ticket for the premier day without too many efforts on that day. And the cinema goods too!!!
So yeah, that's a little bit update about me. Now I need to finish my unfinished project before my flight on the 6th ('-')/
Happy Early New Year people!!! XD
I can't believe this just happened.
Taguchi Junnosuke announce himself RIGHT before KAT-TUN perform in Best Artist that he's leaving KAT-TUN and JE by next spring. Saying he thinks on what he wants to do in his life because he'll reach 30 years old soon.
This is the worst....
I can't believe it when I watch it real-time earlier.
I feel....betrayed, sad, disappointed....it's just....so sad.
KAT-TUN has lose their precious members, like NEWS, SO MANY TIMES already. And when I, WE, have finally feel assured they can go stable like this with the 4 of them, this happened.
They apologized so much in their J-Web entry for the matter. I couldn't even care anymore about Taguchi's entry, but reading the other 3's entry really makes me broken down inside D:
They apologized, and apologized so much, about not being able to convince Taguchi enough to have him stayed. Saying how Taguchi so firm with his decision. They sounded so guilty to the fans, and I don't like it a bit!! It's not THEIR fault!!! D:
I understand Taguchi have his own plan for his life, everyone deserve one, I really do think so, but when you're thinking about the other three's feelings it makes the decisions sounds so cruel :'(((((
I don't know what Taguchi have in mind for his future, Nakamaru hinted that Taguchi wants to isolate himself from the showbiz, so I guess he's leaving this entertainment world for good, maybe getting married like the rumour said or what, but I REALLY REALLY REALLY hoped HE could've have think of a way that wouldn't put the other 3 in this kind of position :(((
They have been comrades for almost 10 years now, and Taguchi also feel it when their members leave, I would've NEVER think he will do this to them.
I may not be the biggest KAT-TUN fans, but my JE journey started by me liking them, so they hold special place in me. We don't know yet what KAT-TUN will be after this, but I hope whatever that decision is, it will be able to make the other 3 smile, even if it's just a bit.
I'm not really in my straightest mind right now, so I maybe regretting parts of what I write here later on, but I really need to pour this down.
And lastly, I HOPE, WISH, BEG, that they won't rub this matter in front of Kame, Nakamaru, nor Ueda anymore whenever they're on TV for their solo work.
No apologize, no jokes, nothing.
I don't want to see them apologizing anymore. It's enough.

So yeah, that's all about it. I haven't got out of my feels for Yuto from this event already. I mean, Yuto is just too good looking in his every pics that it's killing me TT^TT
We got YutoYama moments, hints of future hot YutoKaho moments, and YutoSuda + YutoSudaMamiya moments, how can I not be happy? X"D
I even saw some people that's not his fans saying how he's handsome and cute and stuffs, and now I'm afraid(?) that Yuto's fans gonna increase because of this X"DDD
I'm happy if he get more attention and more jobs, but somehow I'm a possesive fans who kinda wants Yuto just for us, his fans from when he's still unnoticed and stuff. yeah, if you know what I mean U_U
