So they won't return in Nanatsu S2... shame. But I won't complain if we get another OP from Man with a Mission

Too bad. I liked the band since I was a Naruto fag.

Hope they can return, in the future.

Sad to see them break up, Blue Bird was one of the best Naruto Shippuden opening songs, and Bleach ending 7 they did was really emotional.

Wishing them all the best in solo careers.

This was definitely a surprise after they performed at Kouhaku. I guess that was the last time we will see them perform together for a while.
