Popular Japanese VTuber music duo BOOGEY VOXX has announced their disbandment, effective March 6 this year. The duo, consisting of talents Ci the Jiangshi and Fra the Monster, will go on as indie VTubers following the disbandment.
- In an official statement, both Ci and Fra have agreed to disband after three years, citing differences in their desired direction of activities.
- The announcement just comes hours after the duo recently did a VR Mini Live event on the virtual reality app VC.
- Both have apologized for the sudden announcement they have relayed to their fans, stating that they hope to continue supporting them up until their disbandment date.
- The duo will still participate in an upcoming project called Parallelscape, which will be held at the Nizayama Forest Art Museum from February 11 to March 19.
The social media pages of BOOGEY VOXX will remain up as a form of online archive, though their Fanbox and Booth account will be taken down after they part ways. Both Ci and Fra will inform their respective fan bases on their future activities. It is worth noting that Fra will continue on their solo activities, albeit on a lessened frequency.
BOOGEY VOXX started their activities in February 2020 with a cover of Mikito P’s ROKI. They later on released their first original single titled D.I.Y. in March 2020 and an extended playlist (EP) titled Fulfill.
