Kasugai stopped playing due to health, but still performed on anime's 1st opening

Yōko Kasugai, the flutist for the band FUNKIST which performed two of the opening theme songs for Fairy Tail, passed away on October 13 at 12:17 p.m.

Kasugai stopped performing with the band in July of 2009 due to her poor health, but she still performed on Fairy Tail's first opening theme ("Snow Fairy") and appeared in its music video. Kasugai's ailment and the cause of her passing have not been made public.

The band posted a message on Kasugai's passing, and canceled the performances that the members had planned in Fukushima on October 15 and in Tokyo on October 16.
