Well, if that was the case he probably would have left far earlier, considering Ayu's tours were about props, special effects, dancers and performers since the beginning...


I live around AHS (Ayumi Haters Sekai)

Now, that I've read the post, it sounds like this is just temporary. I won't be surprised if he pops up again next year.

Whoever replaces him has big shoes to fill and I look forward to seeing who it is.

Cool, I didn't know he did stuff outside of Ayu's tours.
He was already a semi-famous guitarist before his work with Ayu.

So Ayu just tweeted a bunch about how he's always been by her left hand side and then talking about the next part having no band. That could lend weight to the break with a view to return. I can't really read the whole thing but fan responses are largely variations of "thank goodness"and how hardworking Ayu is...time will tell, I guess.

I'm not an expert at all, and I'm not sure, but in halls the sound could be a little more... loud? and live instruments would sound louder, and with Ayu's current condition, perhaps it could be worse for her hearing, idk maybe a recorded track is less "noisy" for her at that kind of venue, then again as I said, that's just me and a possible conclusion lol

I'm excited to see how the hall tour turns out, it will be very different from her previous concerts.

Phew... Looks like Yocchan will still stay after all - it's just that the upcoming part of the tour won't feature band members in the hall...

Maybe the halls that she will visit doesn't have sufficient room to fit the band, including Yocchan? Hmm...

As a non-Japanese speaker, I'm intrigued by the use of the word "graduation" here - based on the context, I'm assuming people had at first misunderstood the original message to say he was retiring.

I feel much better now. He must be feeling loved after seeing everyone get so upset at the idea of him leaving.
