Osaka visual band Aqua Drop has recently announced the departure of their bassist, Toki. It isn’t often that we hear the actual reasons for band members taking off, and when we do they aren’t always good. However, it sounds like Toki is going to be moving to Tokyo, either to look for work or start a new career. He plans to continue in the music industry as well, so it’s all good news!
The official statements from the band’s OHP are below, translated by yours truly.
Announcing Toki’s departure
It’s a sudden announcement, but it has been decided that Aqua Drop’s bassist, Toki, will leave the band after the May 29th Shinsaibashi OSAKA RUIDO live.
There is only a little time left for activity with all of the current members, but we would be truly grateful for your support of kai, Haiji, Koumei, kou,and Toki as the five-member Aqua Drop.
AS Aqua Drop will continue activity without stopping from here on as well, please give us your support.
And it’s selfish, but please be sure to come to the last show with all five members on May 29th at Shinsaibashi OSAKA RUIDO and see Toki off.
Please give us your best.
Aqua Drop, All members
A message from Toki
Everyone, this is Aqua Drop’s bassist, Toki
At this time it has been decided that I’ll leave the band after the May 29th live
The reason is because I’m going to Tokyo for work
It was September last year when I became a member of Aqua Drop, and
It’s exactly because I was able to meet the other memebers kai, Haiji, Koumei, and kou
That I was able to find myself
I want to become a lecturer!! This idea has become even stronger
I want to turn myself into the kind of passionate musician the other members are
That sort of feeling has grown strong
Everyone, thank you for supporting Toki of Aqua Drop
Please be sure to come to my last live on May 29th
