Why is this just now being published? Did his family want to keep quiet about it? Also would this be the first BEMANI artist to die?

Twin Amadeus, real name Takeo Miratsu, who created IIDX songs like Freezing Atmosphere and alla turca con passione died of cancer a few years ago.

From what I can gather, I think his family did want to keep quiet about it for a while. Maybe someone can translate the site entry to English?

I did my best to translate it. Warning that it is really very sad.


My best friend from elementary school Handsome JET passed away.
It was 8 months ago...
It seems he was riding on the back of a friends motorcycle when there was a traffic accident.
A fellow classmate informed me by phone today.
Having not felt the full impact of it, I phoned his parents, and they simply said "That is already a fact". They also said that they were making up stories to everyone about his whereabouts. I talked with one of his aunts for about an hour.
I felt bad for the aunt and I wanted to comfort her, but too many memories began flooding back and I couldn't finish. The aunt spoke much about him as well.

I talked to the cell phone company to get information about his friend's phone number from the cell phone at the accident. However, they said it was personal information, and refused to get it. The law doesn't really matter since I wasn't even able to attend his funeral. Shouldn't the friend have made sure his friends attended his funeral? What is the meaning of this "personal information protection? Was it because the parents requested it? It must have been a lonely funeral.

The last time I saw him was four years ago. It was when I moved from Kansai to Tokyo. After that, we only spoke by phone. I've been thinking about all the years we hadn't seen each other...But when we were children, we were great friends. I would be really happy if I could see him one more time. I remember we used to say nasty things to each other when we got drunk, but it was always in good fun.

There are so many memories coming up, and it seems impossible that he's gone. It's not really hit me yet, so I haven't cried so far. He will always be in my heart, as they say. I think he also had me in his heart as well. We both lived always thinking of one another. When people talk about him, I think they will say "He had a short life, but it was fun." I was talking with the aunt about whether he had a girlfriend or wife, but she did not know.

He always depended on women, so I hope he found a good woman in the "beyond". If I go there and ask you if you've met someone, you'll probably say "It's none of your business" (smile).

I can't see you again, can I...
I wonder if you're near me right now.
If you are, then I'm not really lonely.

To the people who know him from his Game Music, he probably wouldn't want me to say this, but he would have liked to be friends with all of you and thank you for enjoying his music. If you play his music now, I think he'll smile from Heaven.

And to the people who knew him from personal experience, please don't ever forget about him. He would always say "Everyone, don't forget people who have died!". So please let him know that you won't forget him. So live well, and remember him once in a while please.

Kind of sad...

http://blog.livedoor.jp/handsome_jet/

You can see his blogs abruptly end on May 12th. Even sadder, his last blog reads

"To everyone who came to the concert and to everyone who bought my CD, thank you very much. I hope we can meet again someday."
