I've seen many comments where people mention that he is depressed - did he say this himself? Thanks in advance for answering :).
Mafumafu (look at the tag below)
But yea it'd be better to actually mention the person you mean in the thread.
Aw, I hope not! He's such a sweetie-pie!! :C
I know how that feels, I have clinical depression (and just lost a close family member so that's not going too well) and I have pretty bad social anxiety. But, as I work at it, it's getting a lot better. I hope he can work through his, too. :) Hopefully he has lots of family and friends to support him! And of course, he has his adoring fans, too! :)
Mafumafu did indeed say this himself, sadly. In his Hikikomoranai Radio with Soraru, he replied to a rather dark letter in either episode 1 or 2. (I believe 1).
Welp, it's a shame, but all we can do as fans is support him, I suppose.
There is a fault in my last statement, I believe he did say that he's delt with depresion and anxiety in the past, but I can't confirm that he feels it now.
i hope it's not too late to contribute to this! on the 8th of january mafumafu bravely published a blog post regarding his past (which i really commend him for) where he discussed his after the rain album with soraru and then the serious matters. he spoke about being bullied in the past and has gone through a lot of pain, which he channeled into his singing, lyrics, etc. he's still socially anxious but i believe he's coping with the depression much better nowadays! here's the main source i'm getting this from: http://rainofashe.tumblr.com/post/136880354757/after-the-rain-and-serious-matters-mafumafu-blog
