Tatsuya Tokutake announced on Sunday that he will leave the talent agency With Line and suspend all of his seiyuu activities on December 31. He did not specify the reason for his retirement in his final statement, but thanked everyone for supporting him. Tokutake also apologized to the fans for not living up to their expectations.

Tokutake made his major debut in 2017 casting as Ryouta Suzui in the Kakegurui TV anime, in which he reprised his role for the sequel Kakegurui×× that premiered in Winter 2019. His minor roles include Noboru Minokawa from Gurazeni and Ken from Sakurako-san no Ashimoto ni wa Shitai ga Umatteiru, with the latter being his debut as a seiyuu. Tokutake was also cast as Kazuki Tsukumo in the The iDOLM@STER SideM smartphone game and its subsequent anime adaptation.

Apparently he never wanted to be a seiyuu and just wanted to stick with radio shows so good for him I guess? idk I hope no ill intentions were behind his retirement cause he's still pretty young
'On-Hold' is another way for a completionist to say 'Dropped'

Are you talking about Fugo? Because that's Enoki Junya who is still voice acting

Definitely. I was wondering why he doesn’t have more roles. He wasn’t a bad voice actor at all, he was great in Kakegurui.
