Her agency, HoriPro, also released a statement regarding her sudden marriage and pregnancy, and confirmed that the 20-year old cosplayer did indeed marry the 51-year old mangaka. They added that Otogi Nekomu expressed her willingness to continue her work as a cosplayer “within her capabilities at the meantime.” They then added that she will return once she has given birth and is in good health, and thanked everyone for their support.
