Seriously, too bad, no more Initila D songs in the future then.

Damn, I don't care much about motsu but he and Yuri were a good combination that will be missed, lets see what happens with Yuri,the one that really interest me.

As is usual with bands, after 15 years they simply had too much friction with a lot of things and hated each other by now or Yuri and/or Motsu thought they were the real star and or deserved to win more money or could make in on their own.

All is about Yuri, as long as she continues solo, all good, but damn their style as a combi will be missed.

Well this certainly sucks. Any future Initial D stuff won't be the same without them...

My Japanese is non-existent, could someone explain to me why Sugizo, Duran Duran and Nine Inch Nails were listed at the beginning? People they collaborated with?

How I read this: "Motsu ditched Yuri and t-kimura for Maon Kurosaki and sat in ALTIMA"

In all seriousness though, it's sad to see them go after 15 years. If I had to guess though, it's more of Yuri having to take care of her kid or being with her family (recall that she got married and was expecting a kid around 2009/early 2010). Glad I got to see them at AFA though.

Very sad news...

Initial D will not be the same. I am so glad I got to see them at Anime Central in Chicago. That concert sits up there as one of my favorites along with the Utada Hikaru concert. I will be interested in seeing what Yuri and Motsu do solo or with other groups.
Yuri is very talented and beautiful. She could have a successful solo career easily. As for Motsu, he has a style and energy that makes him unique. I wonder if he will start Mother Ninja back up. I haven't seen/heard anything from them since Wangan Midnight.

I hope both will be successful and happy with the new directions their lives are taking.

Lastly, I want to thank them for all the great songs they made!

That is unfortunate, and to think I saw them perform live at Anime Festival Asia 2012 Singapore, last month.

In that paragraph they are name dropping all of the people they collaborated with. The first part is mostly talking about PWL records affiliated artists in the old days. The part of that regarding Duran Duran roughly translates:
Quote:
t-kimura also had been working with Dave Rodgers, who unleashed an overwhelming presence in the world of Eurobeat, John Taylor of Duran Duran, as well as Pete Waterman, president of PWL in London.

The last few lines are about the participants in their more recent collaborations, which include Trent Reznor and Sugizo.
