Also notable this week was Naomi Ōzora's announcement on Thursday of her marriage and pregnancy. She wrote on Twitter that she married a person outside the entertainment industry in February. Her body condition is stable, and she expects to give birth around winter. She plans to work while keeping a careful eye on her condition; out of consideration for her burden, she will refrain from participating in large events. She apologized to everyone looking forward to her appearances and promised that she will eventually be back, better than ever.

Ōzora also briefly recounted how she met her partner: when she was in trouble on the street last year, he helped her. A very romantic beginning! She described him as a warm person who is endlessly positive and loving.

Naomi Ōzora is best known for her role as the eponymous Hana Uzaki in Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!.
