Music Producer Tetsuya Komuro (55) and singer Tomomi Kahara (39) performed together again after 15 years on Fuji TV's FNS Kayousai.
After their performance of "I'm proud" and "I Believe", Kahara approached Komuro and said "Komuro-san, I'm sorry for causing you trouble all this time. (Tomo) will be able to look forward and walk on. Thank you for everything up to now. I really had a lot of fun today. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.", and covered her face with her left hand as she extended her right hand for a handshake. Komuro grabbed that hand, said something which made Kahara smile and say "Arigato gozaimasu!" once again. Komuro then released her hand and left Kahara who still had her head lowered. Kahara was left alone on the TV screen, and still seemed to carry some sort of sadness within.
Komuro produced Kahara from 1995. He provided support for Kahara both professionally and privately, and turned her into a star; but they went separate ways in 1998. Kahara didn't take this too well, and even attempted suicide at one point.
It did seem suspicious the way they were both gazing at each other w
If she's gotten over it with this, then that's that.
The picture on Kahara's first album where they were hugging each other was downright gross
I actually felt Komuro's kindness in the manner he coldly released his hand from hers
- 奥さんに気を使ってたんだろバカなのかHe was probably considerate about his wife.
Are you stupid?
- 歌うまかったな病みが再発しなきゃ、40で綺麗だし再ブレイクするねHer singing was good.
If her ailment doesn't come back, she'll have another big break since she's still beautiful at 40.
唐突にやったなら、治ってなくね？てか、次が三谷でよかったな～wWas that last part rehearsed?
If not, then don't you think that she's still mentally unstable?
But they're lucky that Mitani came on next~w
It's just very complicated even if he also considers how his wife is right now
- わざわざカメラの前で謝罪と感謝を述べたのか。メンヘラだから思ったらすぐ行動に移しちゃうの生まれ変わった私アピールなのか。So she just had to apologize and express her gratitude in front of the camera.
She's mentally unstable so she immediately does what comes to mind? Or is it an appeal where she's trying to say that she has changed?
- アイビリーブは今の季節に聴くと震える よかった
I tremble when I hear "I Believe" during this season. It was good.
- 二曲目良かったわあっちの方が好きThe 2nd song was good.
I like that one better.
- あれただ小室があの空気に気まずくていたたまれなかっただけだろ元々気の利いたこと言えない軽いコミュ障だしI think Komuro just felt awkward about the situation and couldn't bear to be in it.
He's always been the unsociable type who couldn't say considerate things.
To think that I was moved by the song, that act was unnecessary
- リハしてるだろ華原のアドリブだったら何ぶっこまれるかわからないThey probably rehearsed that part.
If not, you wouldn't know what Kahara would include in her adlib.
They should've put on an act where Takeda would appear with a rose on his chest

Publicly apologizing in that situation shows that she's mentally unstable
- 小室のそっけなさに男を感じた病気のケーコを差し置いてデレデレした所は見せられないよなI felt that Komuro was a man for treating her coldly.
He can't act all familiar with her with his wife Keiko ailing right now.
- 今日の２曲は華原がKEIKOに作ったどの曲よりいいだろうからね悲しいし気まずいThe 2 songs they sang were much better than any song he has composed for KEIKO.
It's sad, and it's also awkward.
- KEIKOの介護大変そうだな小室の老け顔見てて辛いわNursing KEIKO must really be taking its toll on him.
It pains me seeing how Komuro has aged.
- 華原はもう少し大人にならないと握手と笑顔で終わりで良かったのにKahara should mature some more.
They should've just ended it with a handshake and a smiled at each other.
- ２人だけの番組じゃない、後もつかえてるしな小室の対応はアレでよかったと思うがIt wasn't a program dedicated for the 2 of them, some people would still perform after them. I think what Komuro did there was correct.
It can't be helped, KEIKO and her family were probably watching it too
- 今日出たアーティストの中でも歌は一番良かったそれだけにこのくだり余計だった台本なんだろうけどHer singing was the best among all the artists that performed that night.
And that made this ending all the more unnecessary.
Must've been scripted, though.
She suddenly started speaking and seemed crazy. It was fun.
- 小室は演奏中に何度も目を合わせてたし握手の時も目を見てた。素っ気ないのは昔からだろKomuro looked at her numerous times during the song, and he even looked her in the eye when they shook hands. He's always been cold like that.
It's amazing how Komuro's ex-girlfriend, ex-wife and current wife are all in this 1 song
- まあ、華原さんは歌だけで良かったなあのまま去っていけばいい感じだったのに。再発しなければいいけどEverything would've gone well if she just left just like that.
Kahara should've just sang.
I hope it doesn't have a relapse.
- 二人が近づいた時に、マイク音声切って何喋ってるか分からなくした方が盛り上がったと思うI think it would have been better if they cut off the mic when they were approaching each other so people couldn't make out what she was saying. That probably would have been more exciting.
- 華原は常に小室とまた仕事したい仕事したいって繰り返してたからな嫁が大変な時期にもラブコールしてて変だったKahara has always said that she wanted to work with Komuro again.
It was so strange hearing her call out like that with his wife suffering from an illness.
- 華原朋美はかなりかわいいな。年齢考えると芸能人すげーよTomomi Kahara's really cute. And when you think about her age, you can't help but be amazed at these celebrities.
- 嫁さんが体調崩してるからなぁさすがに元カノと仲良くしてる雰囲気だせねえだろwwwBecause his wife is sick right now.
He can't look like he's being overly familiar with his ex-girlfriend.
And it was just like FNS Kayousai to put someone like Mitani right after these 2 w
- 華原朋美絶不調の際の映像愛は偉大だなVideo when Tomomi Kahara was at her worst.
The power of love really is amazing.
They're both talented, why did things turn out like this w
- まあ小室も色々あったしなwWell, Komuro's been through a lot as well w
You can't blame him for hurrying away like that.
