Voice Actress Yū Serizawa Apologizes to Fans For Wearing Ring

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

It started innocently enough. Dog & Scissors voice actress Yū Serizawa posted a picture on her Twitter account of herself holding a microphone in a karaoke booth and wearing a ring on her left ring finger.

Her followers responded, asking about the ring and congratulating her on her wedding. The 20-year-old voice actress had posted another picture of her wearing the same ring earlier on her blog. Serizawa took to Twitter to apologize for "betraying" her fans.

Everyone. This is Serizawa. In my earlier Twitter post there is a photograph of me with a ring on my left ring finger. I'm very sorry for the grief I have caused by misleading you with this. I'm sorry. There is no deep meaning behind this ring. This is the truth. There was a similar post on my blog...
This is the second time I have betrayed you due to my hasty actions. I won't allow this to continue as I carry on with work. There is nothing for you guys to grieve about!! Please believe me. I will continue my efforts to work seriously in the future, be more aware, and to once again work hard to regain your trust.
Thank you all for supporting me and thank you in advance. Thank you for reading until the end.

If this seems excessive, keep in mind that idols with unapproved relationships by their management have faced serious consequences. KAT-TUN singer Jin Akanishi was forced by his agency to leave the GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka live-action television series remake and had his tour cancelled after he got married without permission. Aya Hirano experienced a falling out with her fans of the worst kind after she was perceived as too open about her sex life and preferences on television. She resigned from Twitter and was forced to quit voice-acting until she left her agency. AKB48 idol Minami Minegishi also famously shaved her head as restitution for dating while pleading that she didn't want to leave the group.

Yū Serizawa is a singer and voice actress, as well as a member of the Pretty Rhythm-related idol group, i☆Ris.
