According to the VA studio axl-one, VA Yuuko Gotou, known primarily for characters such as Mikuru Asahina (Suzumiya Haruhi) and Hiro (Hidamari x Sketch), has received another doctor stop, and will be going on hiatus again for intensive treatment for an autoimmune disease occurring in her heart, lung and vessels. The expected length of the hospitalization will be at least for two and a half months. She had a similar disease when she was in the junior high school and once was told by a doctor that she wouldn't be able to go to high school.

A previous announcement on May 7, 2010 was made regarding her hiatus for a throat surgery, which she recovered from on June 3, 2010.

There has been a rising concern about the productions of Hidamari Sketch x Honeycomb and Kyoukai Senjou no Horizon II, but no official announcement has been made.

The VA studio states that they will make further discussions with the doctor and announce her recovery as soon as possible.

I really liked her voice as Mikuru and Naru. I wish her a quick recovery.
And slowly, you come to realize... It's all as it should be...

Oh I remember her. The few occasions where I was able to listen to her voice, were good ones so I genuinely hope that she recovers quickly.

Asahina has the worst voice of any character I have ever seen in any anime.
Like nails on a chalk board. I wanted to punch my screen every time she started talking.

This. It's always sad to hear that a VA is ill, even if I don't like their voice or their roles.
Hope she recovers soon!

Screw the fact that we're not getting anime, it's a sad day when someone's aspirations can't be achieved through no fault of their own. Hope she recovers well.

I liked her voice a lot :( Hopefully she makes a full recovery and returns. I never like the thought of a VA being replaced by anyone else but the original. Although I do understand that's unrealistic expectations.

However bad it might be for us anime fans, I think we agree it's worse for her.
I hope for herself and her family/friends that she'll be allright soon.
