Pile denies the dissolution of μ’s during TojiPaiFin! [Muse] [Love Live! Maki Nishikino’s voice actress][ラブライブ!][μ’sの解散を明確に否定][Pilefection][チャンネルとじぱいふぃん]

During the 4th broadcast of Channel TojiPaiFin, Pile clearly denied the disbandment of μ’s (Muse).

Many fans considered Muse has been inactive since “μ’s Final Love Live!”. Their last one-man live held on 31st March at Tokyo Dome and was virtually dissolved.

One of the membership fans’ email was being selected and read out by Hana Tojima. (Roughly 180+ fans were watching this live 4th broadcast)

This year, 2016 has been memorable. There were many encounters, partings, and discoveries.
Going forth into the new year.
Firstly, the partings.
I have been continuously been supporting Muse for three years plus.
(Suddenly Pile was excited ww)
On 1st April, Muse was disbanded.
Pile: EHH??
Hana: ??Eh?
Pile: There is no dissolution yo!
Pile: Ah! It’s glad. Hence telling everyone that Muse did not disband.
Hana: Hasn’t disbanded?
Pile: Nope.
(Pile coughed)
Pile: Everyone has ended their live activities, but is not the dissolution.
Hana&Yukafin: I see.
Pile: Yup. There’s no disbandment.
Pile: I’m glad to tell everyone about this!
Hana: Originally, I didn’t know about this too.
Pile: Yes. It’s not dissolution.

Previously, Emi Nitta denied their dissolution during the rehearsal for NHK Kohaku Utagassen. But after μ’s Final Love Live!, the dissolution was not even mentioned again.
This remark by Pile is the first dissolution denial after the μ’s Final Love Live!

Comments by fans:

There were comments by the fans that they’re “happy” and “relieved”.
And the expectation of “Is there a day where μ’s will start their activities again?”

Pile has stated that the current state of μ’s is “on hiatus”.

Really hoping for the day to see the Live of the 9 members again!

Should fans interfere with their idols/singers/artistes/seiyuu’s lives? [Pilefection][Opinions]

It’s quite a distinctive between Japanese & the non-Japanese fans.
There’s always a small portion of the Japanese extreme fans, and sometimes they might be really harsh on their words.
Probably being too selfish/finding commonly excuses.
1. The idols/singers/actors/artistes will be “distracted” if they’re dating.
2. The idols/singers/actors/artistes are not even loyal to the fans.
Non-Japanese fans, on the other hand, they’re generally quite open-minded on the taboo topic relating to dating.
1. The idols/singers/actors/artistes have their own lives to live.
2. The idols/singers/actors/artistes have their own rights to date who they want.

*Crude words have been removed. (Usually, will be omitted/deleted on Japanese blogs as well)

Based on this Facebook post’s, under the comments, you can see that most of us are quite supportive of the idea for the artistes to lead their own lives.
