To everyone who has supported FANTASTICS Nakao Shota

Since announcing a temporary stop to his activities in March, FANTASTICS performer Nakao Shota has dedicated himself to treatment of his disease, fighting hard with his family's support. After a long battle with cancer, we regret to inform you that he has passed away.

We say this with great sorrow, as we believe in recovery and have done our best in working with the best medical institutions available.

Thank you very much for your warm encouragement to Nakao Shota up until the end of his life.

His funeral will be handled by family, LDH members, and staff members, according to the wishes of his family.

We are planning an event for him with fans. We will let you know as soon as the details are decided.

Thank you to everyone who has watched over FANTASTICS and thank you to the people who have shown kindness to Shota up until this point.

July 8th, 2918

It's so sad, esp since he hasn't reached the end of his youth when he passed. 

RIP and condolences to his loved ones. ohdearplz.png

So young ! I sometimes forget there is no age for cancer and that even if the young people have a higher rate of recovery it doesn't mean anything.

 

May he rest in piece. And all my condolence to his family and the people who loved him dearly.
