Wow, I had to laugh a little when I read that headline since she does the voice for Conan. I think it would be kind of strange marrying someone who plays a major character in your own series Laughing But good for them, I wish them happiness!

What do you mean? Their kids are going to be talented mangaka that can be voice idol/pop star too. Or maybe not....

Youichi Takahashi, the manga-ka for Captain Tsubasa, and Akari Hibino, the voice actress for the main character in that series, were married at one point as well, although they are currently divorced.

Since when? Confused

I looked around her official website, Hatena Diary and other sources but found no such information. An anonymous user at 2ch asked if they were divorced, but another anonymous user replied "negative."

An anonymous 2ch user wrote:
高橋陽一とは離婚したってきいたことあるけど?

Another anonymous 2ch user wrote:
離婚なんてしてないぞ。

There are, however, many other married and divorced couples within ACG community. I'll try to sort them out... Anime hyper

EDIT: Found a rumor about Takayama and Aoyama's marriage as early as almost three years ago. Shocked

Re: the manga-ka for "Captain Tsubasa" and lead voice actress, I saw marriage/divorce mentioned as an aside across a couple of blogs that I wandered onto via Technorati. (I was doing a routine search for "TWO-MIX" - there's a new CD coming out in July.) Unfortunately, Technorati is being slow as molasses at the moment :( I'll try to add specific links again later.

EDIT: Mea culpa, mea culpa. I finally tracked down one of the blog entries that I was thinking of: http://plaza.rakuten.co.jp/​lions1974/​diary/​200506020000/​.

To clarify, the writer only thought that he/she had heard a rumour that the two were currently divorced. I unfortunutely failed to follow-up on this claim and shouldn't have reported it at all.

So no, Takahashi Youichi and Hibino Akari ARE NOT divorced. My apologies for the irresponsible statement.

BTW - if anyone is interested, Takayama issued a personal statement about the marriage at Little Station, one of TWO-MIX's official sites:
http://www.little-station.co.jp/​cafe/​minami/​minami_set.​html

There is a rough translation of the message here:
http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​two-​mix_clubT3/​message/​692

She also issued a statement on her own official website but one needs to be member of her fanclub to view it.

Congratulations to Aoyama-sensei and Takayama-sensei! I've enjoyed Takayama-sensei's work for many years now.

As to the probable success of their marriage, I would rate it as high, since they've known each other for years and years now.

yeah, professionally.
getting involved with the work(especially in these situations) always ends in disaster. i'm sure it will start off all well and dandy, and the publicity will be good, but i give them at least a year befoe they start having serious problems. this is never a good idea, it's just wishful thinking.

anyways good luck to the two of them, i guess.

I'm not saying that I doubt this marriage will stay together, but nowadays I hear so much about famous people getting married and then divorcing. People these days...

I'd be interested to know your qualifications for marriage adjudication.
