With Sound Horizon[edit | edit source]

Jimang has also participated in the majority of SH related events, including concerts, fan events, and lives. Revo said that Jimang was a very important person for him and that without Jimang, SH couldn't existCitation needed. Jimang supported Revo when AramarY left the group and because of this Sound Horizon was able to continueCitation needed. Revo also said that many characters he created were created with Jimang specially in mindCitation needed.

Leaving Sound Horzion[edit | edit source]

After 7th Story Concert 『Märchen』 ~キミが今笑っている、眩いその時代に・・・~ and Sound Horizon Live Tour 2011 -第一次領土復興遠征-, Jimang said he grew tired of Sound Horizon and wanted to take a break to concentrate on his own music, and that he would prefer not to participate in further Sound Horizon or Linked Horizon releases. However, Jimang returned for Nein in 2015, and participated in the 9th Story Concert 『Nein』~西洋骨董屋根裏堂へようこそ~. During the tour, Jimang wrote on his twitter that after a long long time of convincing, Revo persueded Jimang to return to SH. He said he was happy to return and experience the special atmosphere of SH again Citation needed.

In February of 2019, Revo's Acoustic Party was announced[1]. There were four concerts in total. For the April 29th concert, Revo performed 黄昏の賢者 and afterwards gave an emotional speech about Jimang. Recollecting on past years, Revo lamented that Jimang declined to join for RAN. Being the independent musician that he is, Jimang has a different outlook on music compared to Revo's, and they often fought over itCitation needed. Revo added that he respected and supported Jimang's decision, and that despite SH being Revo and solely Revo's Jimang played a vital role in how it got to where it is today. Revo said he dedicated his performance of 黄昏の賢者 to Jimang, and that if Jimang doesn't want to be in SH and would rather focus on his own career we must all respect his decision. Revo also added that when the Near Future someday arrives, it will be drastically different without Jimang. Ending the speech, Revo asked Laurants to let Jimang know about this speech, as Revo couldn't directly say this to JimangCitation needed.

Laurants spread this information to Twitter, eventually reaching Jimang, who had his own acoustic concert a few days before. Jimang said that since he met Revo, Revo had always been "人だらし", a man who, with sweet words and gentle behavior, could inspire you to do anything)Citation needed. For Jimang, Revo was a super talented person who could be too harsh at times. Jimang loved Revo and SH, and that Revo taught him that in this world, there are many people who he could trust and be supported by. However, Revo was always too demanding on people, especially himself. Jimang recalled working with him, saying that it wasn't always easy or simple, but was always motivating. Despite knowing his own music career could never be as successful as if he stayed with SH, and that he may not be as talented as Revo, Jimang was resolved to continue pursuing his own career no matter whatCitation needed. He ended his thread by saying Revo and him were still on good terms, and asked Laurants to spread the wordCitation needed.
