NOPE. Definitely not. His latest album "ONE" that's gonna be released on July 24 has some of his Vocaloid covers, so it's highly unlikey he's quitting. That single debut of "BELOVED x SURVIVAL" must have caused that uproaring rumour of Gero retiring as an utaite cos his blog said "Single Debut". Sounded like he was gonna leave the utaite world and go mainstream. But no, he's not quitting. He's just making more of his original songs instead of doing covers, kinda like Akiakane.
