"I have gradually wanted to challenge myself to convey emotion as an individual woman."
The official website for two-member musical unit Mimi Meme MIMI, consisting of vocalist/composer/lyricist Yuki Takao and illustrator Chamooi, announced their breakup today on July 18. Their last concert "Mimi Meme MIMI LIVE 2017 ~Bon! Voyage~" will be held at Daikanyama Unit in Tokyo on September 9, 2017.
In addition, Takao, who has also worked as an anime voice actress (Nanami Kanzaki in A Town Where You Live, Maria Sarushima in Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches), will be retired from professional artist activities after their last concert. She says in the announcement, "It is thanks to all our fans that I was able to come this far. When I think about my forthcoming future, I have gradually wanted to challenge myself to convey emotion as an individual woman in a different way. That's how we reached this decision. We are sorry for this sudden announcement."
