So what happened is, Yui started a parallel carreer by “Shell” name, as we already know.
Well, is that a big problem? Maybe for their label, yes, but it’s not such a big thing for the band or the fans, right?
At this point we already know he was fool (to not say stupid) for thinking that no one would recognize his voice and link Shell and Yui…
But we didn’t expect that he would be IDIOT ENOUGH to say shit about UNiTE on his Shell account.
He did it.
On Shell account he talks about his life, about how he’s tired etc and he used to talk about his “common work” (UNiTE).
He always refer to the work as something troublesome, or an obstacle that doesn’t allow him to dedicate himself to what he really likes (doing music by Shell).
In one of the most notable tweets, on march 30th he says “Tonight I have a really annoying job”. It happens it was the same night they had a live broadcast to cellebrate their 11th anniversary.
In other tweet he says he’s interested in form a group (!!!) but he would only to that with members who can respect and admire each others, because, in his words he “doesn’t want to repeat the same failure”.
So basically he refers to everything about UNiTE as something bad and he even called his band A FAILURE.
Yui is the only member who can not compose properly, and he also brought a lot of troubles to the band in these 11 years. During one time (NEW CLASSIC era) they stopped to play most of Mio songs (leader and main composer) because Yui wanted to have a “soft and clean” band and didn’t want to sing heavy songs and stuff like that… They let him direct the band for a while (so they didn’t have to disband due to that), an as result we got a shitty album…
So yeah, the 4 guys made a lot of effort to keep the band together and that’s what they get for that.
I’m sorry for being so emotional rn, usually I’m way more impartial and I would like to bring you the gossip/news in a better way, but I support this dude for more than 13 years and I’ve even moved to Japan just to follow UNiTE, so I’m really disappointed and upset.
