January really does seem like the season for seiyuu to announce that they got hitched. After Rina Satou and Mikako Takahashi announced their respective marriages earlier this month, seiyuu Shinnosuke Tachibana also announced that he is now married… and to fellow seiyuu Ao Takahashi.
Tachibana revealed that they got married on new Year’s day, 1st January, via his official blog. He also revealed an image of their hands now sporting wedding rings.
Tachibana also said that he liked “Takahashi’s strong curiosity and wise consideration”. He then added that “he has realized the things he has seen and felt up until now are only a small part of what the world has to offer, and he is looking forward to new experiences with his wife.” He also said that Takahashi shares his values and she’s invaluable to his life.
The seiyuu then thanked his fans. He said “I still have halfway to go in both those things. I think the things I should learn and difficulties after this are like a mountain. Through sharing these things as a couple and cooperating together, I want to continue to build a cheerful home with happiness.”
Takahashi is best known for voicing Sekkou Boys’ Medici, Overlord’s Peroroncino, Black Butler’s Soma, Big Order’s Yoshitsune, and DD Fist of the North Star’s Kenshirou. His new bride, Takahashi, is known for voicing House of Five Leaves’ Okinu, Bokurano’s Chizuru, Asura Cryin’ 2’s HIwako, and Gon’s Muu.
