Back in July, we were informed that RAVE’s guitarist Mikuru was taking a break from the band due to an illness he had been suffering from. Unfortunately, his illness continue to worsen, until he passed away on October 26th, 2016. Here is the official statement given by PS Company:

To all of RAVE’s supporters,

Since August, RAVE’s Mikuru has been on indefinite activity pause in order to focus on recovery from a medical condition.
In follow-ups, he was advised to undergo different treatments over a long period of time.
