Seiyuu Natsuki Hanae announced earlier today via Agqr's Radio Show A&G Tribal Radio Agson that he has gotten married. He commented that he has been wanting to have a family for a long time, due to his parents and his grandmother leaving him at an early age.

Hanae has voiced many notable characters, such as Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul, Kousei Arima from Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, and Yuuta Hoshitani from Starmyu. His recent roles include Rokuro Enmadou from Sousei no Onmyouji, Yuuta Ashuu from B-Project: Kodou*Ambitious, and Shuuji Narukami from Days (TV). He also debuted as a singer by performing the opening theme song of Kusuo no Ψ-nan (TV), titled "Seishun wa Zankoku ja nai," alongside his role of Reita Toritsuka.

In addition to his seiyuu career, he also hosts TV shows and radio shows. He is one of the current hosts of Oha Suta, which Kouichi Yamadera had hosted for 19 years until earlier this year, with Yuuki Ono. Hanae hosts or co-hosts with other voice actors on many radios shows. Among those, he currently co-hosts two radios not directly related to anime: Ousaka Shiritsu Hanae Gakuen Radio with Ryota Osaka and Agson with Rina Hidaka.

Good for him and all, but isn't marriage pretty much a death sentence for the career of a seiyuu?


More for the female seiyuu than the males. Just see how many female seiyuu announce hiatus after marriage. This is mostly due to Japan still beung a relatively traditional society where women are expected to stop working after marriage. Meanwhile, male seiyuu seem to be going on strong (see: Miyano Mamoru and Suzumura Kenichi)

Also, congrats to Hanae-san! I'm still not very familiar with his works but he seems to be a funny and nice person. Hope he gets the happy family he's always wanted.
Well Sawashiro Miyuki's still kickin'

I am under impression that he's so young but doesn't mean it's bad to start a family at that age considering he's practically alone in this world


Ahhh, I see. He's gonna be a good parent for sure because of that.

@komasan
I see. I don't know how to rephrase it, though.

Congrats to him. :)

And to everyone who says 25 is a young age to marry, my sister decided to get married at age 21. Now that's young. XD

I don't think his parents and grandmother left him at an early age. He said that his mother was the one who got him into his current agency and that was probably 5-6 years ago.

What he said on radio was that he had been hiding that his parents had passed away and he had lived with his grandmother for some time. After his grandmother also passed away (which was slightly more recent but no definite timeline), it became the motivation for him to start a family asap and that's what spurred him to marry his wife.


/edit: already wished him several times but congrats again Hanae ♡

In China, it's early 20s, so I'm not surprised if Japan is similar in that since they have similar cultures.


Wouldn't that be more rural China though? I think it's more mid-20s for the cities. :O (And class differences ofc.)

According to this, Japan's average is around 30.
OH uh idk I was basing it off my homecity :') I live in a suburban homecity so I guess it's a bit different huh.

no it's not , i have read last year that number of children in japan fell to new low.
there's Japan's population crisis and for many young Japanese, marriage and sex are low priorities

most there have waifu and fap to hentai they have created.

Hmm, I don't get it, why for the most here in a age of 25 too young is to marry. In the western standards is this pretty the standard age for a marriage (at least in the modern time, because of course had the people till to 40 years ago much younger married: About in 16~18 years). Because most in this age are already done with the university, where still then a time having for fun or to work, where then they finally decide to marry and a family to create (At someone having already at least a child in age of 3~5). But in the 3rd world or in Arabic countries/cultures is already almost late: With 25 years are already the most since about 10 years married, and having already 2~3 children - where the oldest probably already so old is, like the marriage of him/her parents.
