It is true that I have been in poor health as reported by some. As soon as I recover, I will share my thoughts and feelings in my own words. I have been making a sincere effort for the past thirteen years. For now, I will take a break."
The official websites for both BanG Dream! and D4DJ have also announced that she will be stepping down from her roles, and selection of replacements for her roles will be underway shortly.
