Despite this, he was forced to perform a live concert on March 26, 1995. It became their final concert. After a long hiatus, the band officially disbanded in December 1999 and it was not until around 2010 that Moritomo finally regained his voice, he then began a solo career.


After hearing fans wishing for the group to reform however, Moritomo and the rest of T-Bolan agreed to reunite in late 2012 and are set to go on a nationwide tour of 16 cities beginning in October 2012.

In the end, They were disbanded…



However, they played one-night live on 31th Dec 2016 and Moritomo declared “we’ll be back again”…So…

They will most likely to come back soon.





By the way,


In 2004, moritomo’s ex-wife (Maria) committed mass suicide (total:7 people). In the car…

There was briquette in the car. Therefore, their cause of death was identified as carbon monoxide poisoning. Maria was looking for some partners for a suicide-pact on a message board. And then, she did it.


It was such a shocking case.

An ex-wife (Maria) of the vocal of the extreme popularity rock band died by her own hand. And it was strange. Why did she…?


In fact, they have a child. They divorced soon after a baby was born. Because she had some problems…her multiple personalities.

She was assaulted in a childhood by her father (child abuse, sexual assault, etc). As a result, she was deeply saddened and hurt…


She had to change herself. If not so, she wasn’t able to live…

She had a diagnosis of  “12 multiplex men of integrity” at a hospital.


They got divorced in the end. But custody of the child was a problem. It was decided that Moritomo brought up the child.

After that , she found a new partner and married again in 2003. But the husband used domestic violence.


They lived apart immediately. She begins a new life with a 5 -month-old child but …her multiple personalities appeared again.

And October, 2004 (Day of the fate), she who lost power to live for did away with herself.




Maria left a child with facilities right before she died. And she left a message for her dearest children.


“I’m sorry. Though I’ll die,  mother was happy because of you.”


Didn’t  anyone can save her of the childhood period?


Too sad…
