Seiyu Minaguchi Yuko has announced on her official blog that she will suspend business from this autumn to study abroad. She said it's been her longtime dream to study English and live in a foreign country. After seeing her 30th anniversary as a voice actress and experiencing the tremendous earthquake last year, she decided to act for her future self. She added that it's not a retirement but a temporal leave.

There is no such a thing as being too late. Go there get what you want and come back do what you want.
