One of Japan's leading liberal youth political groups is coming to an end after kick-starting what it hopes will become a new generation of leaders.

Students Emergency Action for Liberal Democracy — better known as SEALDs — will, as planned, disband Monday following the ruling Liberal Democratic Party's victory in the Upper House election in July, which gave it a supermajority in the Diet.

"We have to admit that we did lose," Aki Okuda, 24, one of the group's founding members, said in a recent interview with The Japan Times.
