He doesn't get to simply leave. Johnny's invested thousands upon thousands of dollars into him. He was with the company for 8 years from 1998 to 2006 before he made his official debut. 8 years being trained in singing, dancing, acting on their money. Each guy that comes into Johnny's is a huge investment and as such their contracts are much stricter than a seiyuu's contract.

Are you trying to say Johnny hasn't made their money back on him? I'm pretty sure this is ridiculous.

Also, this sort of thing being brushed off as "idol culture" or "just how things are done" is pretty damn disturbing. And this is for a dude, the girls have it much worse.

Well of course they've made their money back now. It doesn't mean his contract just up and disappears though.

Yeah yeah, too bad for him, congratulations on the baby, etc. etc.

More importantly....

They are making a new GTO live-action series!? Shocked I absolutely loved the other one! I honestly preferred that to the anime adaptation. Oh man, I am excited.
