As of October 30, Yusai’s vocalist Amane is stated to be missing. The members posted a message on their official website apologizing for the situation, and that they, along with family members are searching for him. While they are struggling to find Amane, the members have found themselves unable to contact him.
Since October 25, the band has been performing without their vocalist due to him being in “bad physical condition”. Now that they have not heard from him anymore, they have no clue where he is, making the search more difficult.
We have translated their official announcement, please have a look below:
Thank you for always supporting Yusai.

Unfortunately, Yusai’s members have been through a similar incident while they were in the band Zin. For weeks they had to perform without their vocalist Riku, who was later revealed to be suffering from depression and eventually departed from the group.
We will keep you updated on the status of Yusai and their vocalist. Meanwhile, let’s hope for Amane’s safety.
