Seiyuu Daisuke Ono announced on Monday that he has left the Mausu Promotion talent agency, to which he has belonged since 2002. Moving forward, he will continue to work as a freelance seiyuu.

Prior to the decision to leave the agency, Ono had been affiliated with Mausu Promotion for the entirety of his professional career. Ono notes that, counting his time in its training school, he was affiliated with the agency for 17 years. He also briefly attended a training school under the Aoni Production agency.

Ono has received four Seiyuu Awards in his career, twice as Best Actor in 2010 and 2015, once as Best Supporting Actor in 2008, and a radio personality award shared with Hiroshi Kamiya in 2015.

A new official website with Ono's work portfolio opened on Monday.

Doesn't this mean that he doesn't have to give part of his pay for roles to the agency? This should be a good thing for him. I wish him luck and lots of good roles in the future!!

I almost had a heart attack when I saw him in the news feed. Thank heavens its not bad news. I expect that everything will continue to go well for him.

And now that Handa Sei is making a comeback to our screens in Handa-kun (kyaaaa!!! Too excited!!) I hope Ono senpai will still voice him. Handa in anime won't be Handa in anime without him.

Just keep coming back to do Sebby and it's all good!

Oh thank goodness! I thought, like many others, he was going to quit voice acting altogether. So glad that isn't the case!

Well, I hope he's successful as a freelancer! I'm rooting for you, Ono-san!

He should be fine. If I'm not mistaken, Takahiro Sakurai is also a freelancer and he seems to be doing just fine, so I have no worries about Ono's career........hopefully.

Nah, Sakurai is in Intention agency, along with Kenichi Suzumira and Nao Toyama.

I see. Never mind then.

Ono D is one if the most popular seiyuu so I don't think this will ruin his career at all. Well we'll see.

Keep doing what you do best, Ono-san! I love hearing his voice in anime.

I'm trying not to worry. Daisuke Hirakawa is a freelancer too and still getting more voicing jobs.

Got scared for a moment thinking he quit voice acting all together.
He is a popular seiyuu so i hope he'll do good as a freelancer :3
