Pile’s thoughts on μ’sic Forever

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

Ray’s final live performance scheduled to be held in the summer of 2017.
It has been five years since her major debut as a singer.
Ray thanked her fans for being supportive of her for the past five years, and she is truly sorry for the sudden announcement.

[Translation to be out soon!  8:03pm]

“To my always supportive fans,

Thank you so much for your warm support.

I, Ray, have decided to have my final live performance held in the summer of 2017,
and I will be graduating from my artist activities.

Today have been roughly five years since my major debut,
I have really met a lot of people, sang in various places, experienced various things that I cannot normally experience.
And more than anything, I was able to meet many wonderful fans.

I have been fond of singing since I was a child.
I have always wanted to bring the smile to everyone, even if it’s a little.
It has been my utmost effort and I have enjoyed all the past activities.
On the other hand, since last year I began to dwell on my life and future,
What can I do other than singing?
I have questioned this myself.

Under these circumstances, I have found another unfulfilled big dream,
and I want to challenge it.

I have discussed it with my staff, and we came to a consensus.
The staff accepted my selfish decisions and wishes.

And more than anything, announcing this abruptly to my fans,
I am really sorry.

Next month I will refrain from my one-man live since the 5th anniversary of my debut,
however, various other event appearances have been decided.
Until that day till I graduate from being a singer, I will still be the usual cheerfully and brightly me.
I think,
I am glad to have spent the happiness time together.
January 25, 2017
Ray”

Japanese netizens response:

“I’m also a very faithful person, Mimori please marry me!”

“I’m the person she mentioned!”

“Stop being delusional, I think she forgot to say that the person must be handsome as a precondition”

“She suddenly revealed these, is she ready to announce her marriage notice?”

“Yesterday, she took part in a radio program and thus tweeted about it. If she got married, many fans are going to die”

Me: This “person” seems like Emitsun (Emi Nitta)?? Or probably Soramaru (Sora Tokui)??
