Felt it has been a long time since I’ve written such a long blog post.
It has been a year since FINAL LOVE LIVE. The time has been going by so fast.
There were lots of interviews after FINAL LOVE LIVE!, and I thought there will be lots of opportunities to talk about my own feelings about it.
It has been a busy 6 years, but also a fulfilling one. I have gained lots of precious experiences. Continue reading Pile’s thoughts on μ’sic Forever
Forget about Piler or 816, because “Tailwind” was what Pile named her fans.
During today’s NicoNama broadcasting on Valentine’s Day, Pile announced her third solo album: “Tailwind(s)”. It will be scheduled to release on Apil 26th. The name of the new album was literally translated from the word “Tailwind”.

During the 4th broadcast of Channel TojiPaiFin, Pile clearly denied the disbandment of μ’s (Muse).
Many fans considered Muse has been inactive since “μ’s Final Love Live!”. Their last one-man live held on 31st March at Tokyo Dome and was virtually dissolved.
One of the membership fans’ email was being selected and read out by Hana Tojima. (Roughly 180+ fans were watching this live 4th broadcast)
This year, 2016 has been memorable. There were many encounters, partings, and discoveries.
Going forth into the new year.
Firstly, the partings.
I have been continuously been supporting Muse for three years plus.
(Suddenly Pile was excited ww)
On 1st April, Muse was disbanded.
Pile: There is no dissolution yo!
Pile: Ah! It’s glad. Hence telling everyone that Muse did not disband.
Hana: Hasn’t disbanded?
Pile: Everyone has ended their live activities, but is not the dissolution.
Hana&Yukafin: I see.
Pile: Yup. There’s no disbandment.
Pile: I’m glad to tell everyone about this!
Hana: Originally, I didn’t know about this too.
Pile: Yes. It’s not dissolution.
Previously, Emi Nitta denied their dissolution during the rehearsal for NHK Kohaku Utagassen. But after μ’s Final Love Live!, the dissolution was not even mentioned again.
This remark by Pile is the first dissolution denial after the μ’s Final Love Live!
Comments by fans:
There were comments by the fans that they’re “happy” and “relieved”.
And the expectation of “Is there a day where μ’s will start their activities again?”
Pile has stated that the current state of μ’s is “on hiatus”.
Really hoping for the day to see the Live of the 9 members again!
