According to the official website, Morikawa, Toshiyuki quit Arts Vision and has launched a new seiyu agency Axl One. Fukuyama Jun also quit Production Baobab and joined Morikawa's new agency. They have founded a seiyu school Axl Zero and will train young seiyu on their own. Morikawa had trained Seki Tomokazu, Konishi Katsuyuki and Hirakawa Daisuke when he was teaching at Katsuta Seiyu Academy.

Naraku and LeLouch leaving their company to work together? Must be another plot for world domination through their army of seiyus

If I remember, I think waaaaay back there was a bunch of people who quit Artsvision and there was this rumor about how some of the members were going to form their own group.

Good luck MoriMori.

Axl?! Is it named after his dog?! (・◇・)

I can't help but think that they coerced Fukuyama Jun in some way to gain more publicity.

Good call, I think there's a desperate need for more Seiyuu agencies especially seeing how competitive it has become over the past few years.

well since the seiyuu awards where there are no male winners this year or years before when only people from major agencies have won, it's not a bad idea to make a new label just like koyasu takehito does.

way to choose the day to announce. way too random.

Morikawa trained my favourite Seiyuu? Cool.

Also, you can't go wrong with Lawrence Kraft.

Their school will be a success for sure.
