Yu-Gi-Oh! Voice Actor Shunsuke Kazama Gets Married

Yūgi's voice & Akihabara @ DEEP/Jun to Ai actor married woman outside entertainment industry

Shunsuke Kazama, the 30-year-old actor whose most well-known voice-acting role is Yūgi Mutō in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime franchise, married a 35-year-old woman outside the entertainment industry in early May. His agency Johnny's Entertainment confirmed the news via a faxed announcement on Saturday. The couple had met each other through a friend in 2004 and maintained a relationship since then.

Among dozens of his acting credits, Kazama played the lead male roles in two television series: Page in Akihabara @ DEEP and Itoshi Machida in Jun to Ai. Kazama was actually the second person to play Yūgi Mutō in the Yu-Gi-Oh! television series and films, since Megumi Ogata played the character in the 1998 Toei version. Kazama also voiced Shirō Mizunuma in Goro Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli's From Up On Poppy Hill film.
