Thanks to Jul again for the heads-up (I apparently owe this guy a Pepsi or something), but Fruitpochette, so laden with monster promise following Rum’s replacing Mina at TIF just a month ago, has already left the group.

You can read Shiori’s statement here. It sounds like there were some personal differences, maybe. And note how Shiori has changed her Twitter handle again.
Nonetheless! Shiori’s message also contains the important nugget that she won’t be a solo performer for long; solo performer Narasaki Kyuri (Twitter) will be joining her at JAMxNatalie EXPO and will continue her existing solo career while working as a member of Fruitpochette.
As for Rum and death vocals, I guess we’ll always have TIF.
Updated most recently to clarify the name of Shiori’s new semi-permanent partner. Check out the comments, and please do offer any insights if you have them.
