The seiyuu and celebrities often announce their marriage well after it happens. It didn't mean to imply that she got pregnant and then they suddenly got married….

Strangely though, based on his output I wonder how this guy makes enough to put food on the table.

Some people are claiming Japan is conservative but this is a laughable notion at best today.

NANI?! They fucked before getting married?


smh not valuing Asian culture...


1. Seiyuu delay announcing their marriage for privacy reasons.
2. Theres nothing indicating that it happened the way you speculate.
3. Modern Japan youth have been pushing tradition aside for ages
4. Asian culture is not always the same as Japanese culture.
5. Your values are not necessarily their values


I do not quite understand how premarital sex is associated with Asian culture. Yep, Japanese culture is rather conservative and patriarchal, but I doubt that in the 21st century someone will be worried that lovers are having sex. Even extremely nationalistic Mahouka calls it extremely old-fashioned and atavistic, although LN talks about pseudo-noble society in the future.
