Voice actress Rina Satou (Mikoto in A Certain Magical Index, Negi in Negima!, Hayato in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable) welcomed in the new year with an 11:59 PM post on December 31 on her blog, *☆.Rina Diary.☆* Although it was mostly typical fare like thanking her fans for their support and reflecting back on her activities, she also dropped a more important announcement in the middle of it:
And this is getting personal, but this year I gained a life partner I can cry and laugh with, and it was a year when I welcomed a new, small life to cherish and protect.
On my web radio show, "Let's Meet in the Sky ♪ F [AnoSora]," everyone (the listeners) is my family — me, of course, but also my father, mother, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, grandfather, grandmother, doggie, kitty...
Talking about my family made me feel warm and happy... "AnoSora" has already become family! I kept thinking how much I wanted to tell you all about my new family. And I'd already willfully taken on the feelings of a big sister to my relatives.
I really wanted to announce this vocally, but it looks like "AnoSora" won't get that honor... [weeps]
I will happily watch out for all your updates! Everyone is doing their best and lifting up the sky. Please await the time when "AnoSora" will make the news!
Well. Living with a small life for the first time is a series of new discoveries every day! There are many joys, but everything is beyond what I had imagined... it's been a struggle. [laughs]
Along with thanking the parents who have raised me, I have renewed respect for the fathers and mothers out there.
The "AnoSora" family has moms and dads too, and I look forward to sharing my stories next time. I spend my days imitating my son (it's a boy!). I want to steal his voice [laughs]! The sounds babies make are very interesting!
Satou won the Best Lead Actress Award at the 8th Annual Seiyū Awards in 2014. Ai Shimizu, Kousuke Fujishima and Megumi Toyoguchi also got married last year; Lily Hoshino, Hiromi Hirata and Joel McDonald welcomed children into their families this year.
