Why do they seem to have Mahiro’s eyes always covered? Also… Mitsuki…that hair cut…oh honey :open_mouth:

It’s because of his eye condition. The flashing lights during lives are too much for him, so they decided to start using blindfolds for the shows. Eventually it just has become part of the base look for him

Photo looks so weirdly empty without greenboi :cry: I’m guessing they’ll have a support guitarist perform while he’s on a break because everything has been written for 2 guitars…just hope they’re not pushing Mahiro too hard. I read an older blog post about the Manjushage tour and he said that he performed with 90% of his vision blocked, but he still had tears streaming down his face from the light sensitivity. So now they cover his face as much as possible to prevent any light from getting in and causing pain, but he also can’t see anything.

I feel like they’re going to just keep churning out singles and touring until Mahiro is physically unable to perform, which feels really sad but is also what he seems to want to do.

I thought that was the reason, such a tragic condition. I remember seeing this Researchers aim for first human eye transplant within the decade it could be good news for him?

I miss the eyes of Mahiro, I understand his current circumstance, but with him being a so expressive vocalist I want to see him being expressive with his face as well.
I hope he will recover (if that would be possible)

It’s a genetic disorder, so there’s no recovering. It generally doesn’t result in blindness, just severely reduced vision and major light sensitivity, from what I’ve read, but since being a stage performer calls for being under blindingly bright lights plus having to move in dark backstage areas, it’s a difficult condition to work around. He doesn’t even sell chekis anymore and always wears sunglasses at instores to protect his vision and avoid pain. It must be really tough…

Surprisingly, codomo dragon mentioned this concept in their song before kiryu did

I had no idea about his eye condition (I don’t follow the band too closely so don’t lynch me) but famn that’s a major bummer. Must be hard having such a condition and trying to perform what you love doing too. Seems like he’s doing his best though so good luck to him!

  • What is it with so many Japanese musicians having all these weird conditions?? Am sure this is nowhere near as common in western bands.
