PASSPO☆ have announced that they will end their career with a one-man live performance at Nakano Sunplaza on September 22, 2018.

PASSPO☆ staff commented on the official website as,

“Since the end of 2017, we have discussed our future activities and the careers of each of the crew (members), then it came up that each of the crew is hoping to challenge different things. We tried to maintain the form of PASSPO☆ based on various possibilities, but we have got the feeling that “If all of us are not together, we will not be able to continue PASSPO☆.” So we had to decide to disbandment at the end of the day.
PASSPO☆ has started their activities as a group of ten girls in 2009. After seeing the graduation of the three crew, we have only been continuing our activities with the original members until now.
We put a lot of effort to form the full scale of the band with only 7 of us, in order to acquire the social recognition which is a strong desire of crew.
Despite our goal “We will be one and only performance group that continues singing and dancing, playing instruments even if we become a grandmother.” was a secret word that inspired ourselves, we are really sorry that we have made this conclusion.”

They posted the explanation of the circumstances with the words of apology.

They mentioned about the future of the members with words of gratitude as,

“Although we discussed repeatedly, Ai Negishi and Shiori Mori, they are still hoping that, “we would like to continue to sing the songs of PASSPO☆ even after the disbandment”.
We would like to continue to support them and trying to give them chances to be able to continue singing in some form. Also, we will continue to support other crew as much as possible.
We are really thankful for supporting, cheering and raising up PASSPO☆ until now
We will embark on our live performance tour from May 20th, all of the crew and staffs will continue to devote ourselves to full efforts. So please continue to give us warm cheers until the final landing (live performance) on September 22th at Nakano Sunplaza”

Comments from members:
Dear our passengers (fans) who always support us and all interested parties,
PASSPO☆ will end our career with a one-man live performance at Nakano Sunplaza on September 22, 2018.
We are really sorry that we had to make such decision even though we have continued to say that “We will be one and only performance group that continues singing and dancing, playing instruments even if we become a grandmother.”
PASSPO☆ has started ten girls then now we are 7 of us after twists and turns. We have seriously thought that we continue our activities together even if we become a grandmother in the future. It was a magical word to encourage ourselves and we also wanted to make our passengers feel comfortable as well.
Since so many idol groups will be broken up, we have thought that it is our mission to recognize people to think that “Female idols have eternity”.
Although three crew graduated from PASSPO☆,
we have been proud of what we have been doing with all these crews for 9 years so we have thought that “If we lack one more crew, there is no choice but to break up.”
It is truly sad that now it became reality.
We have talked over and over until to make this difficult decision
Since we are too close to each other, we all have strong characters, we all are stubborn, and because we all love PASSPO☆ anyway, it took so long to make the decision. It was not enough how much we talked.
We do not want to let passengers feel sad, so we thought if there is anyways that we can avoid to disbandment. We thought about how our passengers feel, and we couldn’t sleep at all every day.
However, this is what we decided.
Because we are like a family, so we would like to respect each other whatever they wanted.
We are so sorry that if you feel like it was a selfish conclusion.
We were so happy to become a crew of PASSPO☆ and proud of being a part of PASSPO☆ for my whole life.
We were just ordinary school girls in Shibuya, not really talented or anything but now we are proud of ourselves. That’s all thanks to PASSPO☆.
Thank you for making us PASSPO☆, being part of PASSPO☆.
Whether we cry or smile, this is going to be our last live tour.
Every single flight (live) will be more important than ever.
Until September 22nd, we would like to deliver gratitude to everyone who supports us. We will continue to run through with all our strength to Nakano Sunplaza!
Please, come and see us.
