Manga artist Kousuke Fujishima (Oh My Goddess!, You're Under Arrest) tweeted a letter on July 26 apologizing for recent events and announcing the birth of his and cosplayer Nekomu Otogi's child.

Apology and birth report

I'm sorry to have worried all of you, the fans, with the sudden announcement the other day. I want to once again offer an apology to having greatly troubled everyone involved.

Also, today I have a report to make. Yesterday our child was born. From here on out, I will cherish my wife and my newborn child and, to repay back the support everyone gave me, I will do my best at producing my work.

Kousuke Fujishima

To the fans and to all the parties concerned, I want to apologize. I also deeply apologize for not being able to appear at Monthy Doronjo's sale event "Cosplaymate TV" in Kyoto. Looking at Kousuke's world view and delicate drawings, and in in spending time together, there are many things we like and common features we have. I found I feel the most happy together with him. I think I want to be happy my whole life with Kousuke and the cute baby born to us.

In regards to my job, I want to do my very best and I think I can certainly return to events and live performances. For my family and also for my fans and for all the people involved, I'll try my best, so from now on I'll be in your care.

Nekomu Otogi

Otogi announced their marriage and her pregnancy on her Twitter on June 29, and Fujishima confirmed the marriage on his Twitter on July 7.

Fujishima is the artist for the hit manga Oh My Goddess! and You're Under Arrest and worked on character designs for the Sakura Wars and the Tales of game series. His newest manga, Toppu GP, is currently running in Kodansha's Monthly Afternoon magazine.

Otogi is a well-known cosplayer and performer. She won first place in "Akiba's Young Men Choose Beautiful Girl Cosplayer Election," and her portrayal of Yatterman's Ms Doronjo in a photo book contributed to her fame. Her recent works include the live-action film The Little Match Girl and advertising spicy noodle soup in a catgirl costume.
