e-ZUKA’s mother passed away from cancer at the end of February. She was a sweet lady whose family electronic store is an honest to goodness shrine to GRANRODEO. Obviously very proud of her son she was very kind to fans who stopped by, such as feeding them cookies and tea during the Tokamachi shows. She kept a book on the register counter where fans could leave messages. I’d like to think our words let her know how much e-ZUKA and GRANRODEO mean to us too. Thank you, Iizuka Eiko-san, for your kindness, and please rest in peace.
