Mariya Ise, best known for her roles as Killua Zoldyck in Hunter X Hunter, Levy McGarden in Fairy Tail, Princess Lenessia from Log Horizon, Stocking from Panty & Stocking, and Riko Mine in Aria the Scarlet Ammo, has now officially announced that she has been married since January of this year and will soon be expecting a baby.
Ise was originally set to play Chie Satonaka in the live-action Persona 4 Arena stage play last December 2014, however, she had to drop out of the role because of “bad health”. However, as she has found out, her “bad health” was actually symptoms of her becoming pregnant, and just a month later, she got married. Fans were disappointed when she dropped out of the Persona 4 Arena stage play as she has already been revealed in costume as Chie. She was replaced by actress, Makoto Koichi for the role.
Though she is still pregnant, the 26-year old voice actress has assured fans that she will be continuing her work as a seiyuu.
Let’s congratulate her on her marriage, and our AFA Channel teams hopes that she will have a healthy baby in the later half of this year.
