A day after the breakup of SEALDs, Japan's iconic pro-democracy students' group, members left the door open Tuesday for similar initiatives in the future.

As Japan marked the 71st anniversary of its defeat in World War II on Monday, SEALDs, short for Students Emergency Action for Liberal Democracy, officially put an end to 15 months of strenuous campaigning against the unpopular security legislation bulldozed through the Diet by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's ruling coalition last year.

Known for protests peppered with hip-hop-style music and catchy slogans, SEALDs was hailed as a symbol of Japan's modern youth activism, the likes of which have rarely surfaced in a nation where voter turnout among the young remains doggedly low.
