Tsubasa and Issei will depart from DIMLIM tomorrow.

Oh my, I really wish this wouldn’t happen. I hope DIMLIM will survive this…

Some of you might know that there’s been some drama between DIMLIM’s drummer Issei and a fan a couple of weeks ago. I decided not to write about it since I can’t tell what’s true or not. Screenshots are way too simple to fake even though I personally think they are authentic. If it is, I still understand both parts. So if you wonder what this is all about, you can have a look at the girl’s story here.

However, I don’t know if this incident is connected to this or not, but Issei and bassist Tsubasa have decided to leave DIMLIM tomorrow (November 9th) after their show with JILUKA. This came as a shock to me. DIMLIM will continue with their schedule with support musicians, but what happens after that?

In their official announcement Tsubasa doesn’t really give a clear explanation to why he will leave while Issei says that he hasn’t been showing enough respect to the other members or the staff (this is my interpretation, might be wrong). He also feels that he hasn’t been able to grow as musician since he joined DIMLIM. He was unaware of this until he was told and he takes all the blame for a growing distance between the members. DIMLIM used to be his everything and he wanted to continue, but his shortcomings hinders him. He says that he will continue working with music but can’t tell much about his future right now.

【Important information from DIMLIM to everyone】
Thank you very much for your continued support from DIMLIM.
This time, on November 9 (Thursday) I will report that Ba. Tsubasa, Dr. Issi will be withdrawn, with Mirror Shifting Water PRESENTS “Explosion City – Versus -” DIMLIM vs JILUKA 2 MAN LIVE.
It is a sudden announcement and I am sorry for troubling you very much to the people of the fans and everyone involved.
Below are comments from members.

Bass: Tsubasa (翼)Ba.翼
本当に急な発表でごめんね。
早すぎるよね。
これからリリースもあったし、AREAでのワンマンもあったのに本当にごめん。
DIMLIMで出会ったファンのみなさん、関係者のみなさんには感謝の気持ちでいっぱいです。
本当にありがとうございます。
明日がDIMLIM翼としての最後です。
詳しいことは後日綴らせてください。
1つだけ。
どんな形であれ、音楽は絶対に続けます。
だって俺には音楽しかないから。
生きる術がこれしかないから。
特にバンドが決まってるわけでもないし、バンドやるかやらないかすらも決めてないけど、少しだけ自分の中での音楽がなんなのかを考えます。
決して後ろ向きではないし、不仲でもないです。
みんなと出会って1年も経ってないけど、まるで数年一緒に過ごしたような濃い時間でした。
明日が最後。
常に後悔はないように活動してきた。
最後の瞬間までDIMLIMのベースとして、胸を張ってステージに上がるのでよろしくお願いします。
そして、これからも3人が続けるDIMLIMをどうかよろしくお願いします。

Ba. Tsubasa
Sorry for a truly steep presentation.
It’s too early, is not it?
There was also a release in the future, I’m really sorry even though there was a one man at AREA.
Fans and people involved in DIMLIM are filled with gratitude.
thank you very much.
Tomorrow is the last as DIMLIMTsubasa.
Please let me know the details later.
Only one.
In whatever form, music will definitely continue.
Because I have only music.
Because this is the only way to live.
Especially the band is not decided, I have not even decided whether to play the band or not, but I think what little music is inside of me.
It is never retrospective and I am not disagreeable.
It has not been a year since I met everyone, but it was such a rich time that I spent a couple of years together.
Tomorrow is the last.
We have been acting so that there is no regret at all times.
As the base of DIMLIM until the last moment, I will stretch my chest and go up to the stage so thank you.
And please continue to ask DIMLIM for three people to continue.

Bass: Tsubasa (翼)Dr.壱世
こんな形になって本当に申し訳ないです。
こう言った結果になってしまったのはメンバーやスタッフに対する思いやりが欠けていた事、人として欠落している部分があった事、DIMLIMが始まってからドラマーとしてアーティストとして俺が成長できなかった事にあります。
そしてそれを言われるまで気付けなかった事にあります。
メンバーの気持ちを離れさせてしまった俺に全ての責任があります。
しかし、それらは俺が今後生きていく上で改善していかなければいけないものであります。
DIMLIMは俺の全てでしたし続けたかったですが悔いばかりが残ります。
これまで関わっていただいたファンの皆さん関係者の皆さんには感謝の気持ちでいっぱいです。
そして本当に申し訳ありません。
今後については今は何も考えられませんが音楽は続けます。
DIMLIMの壱世としては11月9日が最後になってしまいますが、全力でライブをやらせてもらいます。
DIMLIMはこれからも続いていくのでご支援の程よろしくお願い致します。

Google Translate:
Dr. Issi
I am really sorry for becoming this shape.
What resulted in this result was that I was lacking compassion for members and staff, that there was a missing part as a person, that I could not grow as an artist as a drummer since DIMLIM began Yes.
And it is because I did not notice it until I told you that.
I’ve got all responsibility for me who has let go of the members’ feelings.
However, they must be improved as I live in the future.
DIMLIM was all of me and I wanted to keep it, but only regret remains.
It is full of gratitude to everyone concerned about the fans who have been involved so far.
And I’m really sorry.
Regarding the future, nothing can be thought right now, but music continues.
As for Issei of DIMLIM, November 9th will be the last, but I will do my best with all my strength.
Since DIMLIM will continue so far, thank you for your continued support.

  1. I don’t want to cause any disturbs, it’s your blog you do what you want, but as a fan of your work… I think you should abstain yourself to post about this (supposed) ‘conflicts’ between Issei and that ‘fan’. I mean is… you are giving her protagonism.
    Maybe to take careful looks to her Twitter and to those allegaged screenshots… you would notice the fails. But still… you prefered to feed her (supposed) ‘innocence’ when unfortunately what the most of ‘fans’ are is innocent since they pest Jrockers with tones of disturbing content. I’m really sad that Visual Kei have been invaded for a a large bunch of get-attention-crybabies in the past years.

    • I understand your thinking, and I was unsure if I would post it or not. Still, I think it’s better to add a link then to make people speculate on nothing…. I knew that people would refer to this incident and it would raise questions. I hope that people can make a fair judgement based on the fact that if we’re neither Issei or that fan, then we don’t really know anything for sure.

      I didn’t realize that I gave her “protagonism”. I thought I presented my “neutral stand” regarding them both, which I really have. But I will think about what you say and consider to remove the part about the fan.

Welcome! This is not an actual news site but a personal blog, run by an ordinary person who loves visual kei. This is my space where I ventilate thoughts and values and shares happenings within the scene. My goal is to make information easy to access and to support artists and movements that I admire. Especially smaller bands that need an extra push in the djungle of major bands. English is not my native tounge so please condone my linguistic mistakes.
