After a very successful run together, since 2010, the seiyuu unit from anime, Love Live!, known as μ’s (read as Muse) will be disbanded in April 2016. This sad news was revealed at a special program aired via Tokyo MX, Bandai Channel, and Niconico.
The announcement mentions that the muses of Love Live! will be saying one final farewell in a concert to be held at the Tokyo dome from 31 March until 1 April 2016, titled “μ’s Final Love Live!”
The special program also announced plans for special events leading up to the final concert, including screenings of the movie, TV anime, and other concerts. Also announced is μ’s final single to be released on 2 March 2016, just before their contract’s expiration somewhere around the end of March 2016.
It was reported by Tokyo Sports Web that the contracts for nine members of μ’s will expire by the end of March 2016 and they will not be renewing it any further.
66th NHK Kōhaku Uta Gassen
Before their popular and historic run ends, μ’s received the honor of being able to perform at the 66th NHK Kōhaku Uta Gassen, one of Japan’s most prestigious musical event of the musical industry.
Given that they will be breaking up next year, this might be their only appearance in the annual New Year special.
So to the nine muses of Love Live!, thank you so much for the 5 years worth of enjoyment!
