Yoko Hikasa announced via her official blog that she got married earlier in the year. She did not reveal the identity of her new spouse.

Her notable roles include Mio Akiyama from the light rock music club anime K-On!, Rias Gremory from romance ecchi anime High School DxD and its sequels, and Kyouko Kirigiri from the mystery game and anime Danganronpa. Her most recent role was Nashetania from the Summer 2015 fantasy anime Rokka no Yuusha.

She has also performed theme songs for anime series, such as Shingeki no Kyojin, where the CD single sold for 9,021 in its first week in May 2013. Her CD single for Hal sold 5,789 units in its first week in June 2014. Some of her successful CD albums include the album titled Couleur, where the CD ranked 13th and sold 6,485 units, and the collaboration album Glamorous Songs, which sold 8,046 units in its first week of release.

In addition to working as a seiyuu and singer, she also co-hosts a weekly radio show with fellow seiyuu Eriko Nakamura.

An experienced seiyuu who can voice a lot of different character. SHe did a good job again with Nashetania this summer indeed. Makes fairly good OP/Ending song too.
Since she's announcing that she "already married" I wonder if that's only like 2 months ago or that's in the first part of 2015.Looks like she has no intention to stop working as a seiyuu anyway, which is good.

Congratz.

OMEDETOU!

More on her record as a singer: She also held the record for most copies ever sold by a seiyuu with HTT's "NO,Thank You!" for more than five years until very recently which was broken by the μ's.

I could imagine her in bed calling her spouse in the seductive voice of rias gremory. Damn what a catch for that guy.

That's got to hear. She is also going to be the voice actor of a certain character in the 2nd half of snk season 2. Also why are people worrying that she is going to leave the industry? Is it a normal thing when a seiyuu gets married they leave the industry or something? I don't get the concerns.

The deranged side of the fanbase may force her out or try to (sometimes with violence, marriage is a crime to them punishable by death in their warped heads), and a few left on their own as well.

To be honest, I remember only one example of this - Michie Tomizawa. And even then she still occasionally appears in small roles here and there.

As for Yoko Hikasa - congratulations to her.

nah, she's 30 already. For that kind of extreme otaku/fans, anything "this old" is pretty much a grand mother anyway, so they won't care x).

It's not that she left because of fans or something (it wasn't even a big problem back in 2001 to begin with). She semi-retired to spent more time with her family, IIRC. And she also had a very beautiful farewell concert in Sakura Taisen franchise (creator of franchise said that there can be only one Sumire, so nobody thought about recasting).
