They will be a hardcore death match group called Prominence and work as freelancers in other companies. They plan to run a Prominence show in the middle of next year if the virus pandemic will allow it.  

Kyuuri is out of action and will retire. She debuted with company in 2013.

Maya Yukihi will be no longer under contract in 2022 and she’ll become a freelancer. The indication is she will continue to work for the company as a freelancer.
