Only idol can ruin their career that way. Many VAs and singers got married and their career are still fine.

She's a singer, not a voice actress or idol.

Isn't that like a same thing in Nippon ?


Not at all, all three are different and non-VA/idol singers can marry without ramifications.

Typical rabid fans usually do this type of shit :L

As long as she knows how to hope with these things its probably going to be fine.

Wow, she was an OL before?
I don't know where to put in the news, but she delivered resignation form to the office before participating the competition that mentioned in the news. Can see from that action that she had a huge determination (there's no return even if she lost) and strong feeling about the dream to become an anisong singer.

Wow, she was an OL before? I'd never would have guessed that, she has such a beautiful voice! I love especially Zzz from Nichijou and World's End from Grisaia no Meikyuu, I listen to both of these so often.

Good for them!
