MEJIBRAY fans, rejoice! Koichi’s return onto the scene finally has an exact date stamped on it, and Tsuzuku will be jumping on board; the two have announced the launch of a new project, called 8P-SB, on June 18, 2018.
Are you as excited as we are? From the current state of promotional material released it is yet unclear whether 8P-SB is a band or a different kind of project, but none the less; it is something we can look forward to.
After the sudden announcement at the end of 2017 that Koichi and Tsuzuku would be leaving their company after their contract ended, the two have, to a point, fallen off the map for a while.
Koichi initially deleted all content from his social media accounts; he resurfaced in January under the new name Koichi Niiyama (understandably assumed to be his real name). In the very first picture published on his new Instagram account on January 11, Koichi is shown getting his long ponytail cut off by a man identified by fans to be Tsuzuku, and has a long message written down his entire back in clear display.
At the end of the message, Koichi asks his fans to wait to see him again in June. It appears now that he has truly kept his promise.
