Mr. Osomatsu and Seraph of the End seiyuu, Miyu Irino, has been planning to go abroad to study for a long time. However, every time he discussed the subject matter with his agency, they would always tell him “not now”. But he has just announced on his personal blog that he has finally gotten his chance to do that – to take a short break from his voice acting job and go on hiatus.
However, Irino insisted, and said that he needed to go, and he needed to go as soon as possible. The seiyuu said that he wanted to “meet many people, and know more about languages,theatrer, and other things he does not know yet.”
He also assured fans that he is coming back, and said that he will be returning sooner than they are expecting him to return. He also has a new album coming up, titled “Dare to Dream”, and he likened this upcoming journey to that new album, which is slated for release on 7th December. His hiatus will begin after a series of solo concerts in January 2017.
The seiyuu is best known for his roles as Haku in Spirited Away, Yuichiro Hyakuya in Seraph of the End, and Todomatsu in Mr. Osomatsu.
