Voice actress Ikumi Nakagami announced on her blog on Tuesday that she is currently pregnant.

She noted that she was approaching her fourth wedding anniversary, and that she had wanted a child ever since she got married, but she was cast as Yukari Akiyama in Girls und Panzer very soon after her wedding, and chose to prioritize her work at that point. She also noted that many people in her office as well as her manager are helping her, and that she will take a break from her job starting in July, but hopes to return again after she has given birth.

Nakagami played the character of tank expert Yukari Akiyama in the 2012 Girls und Panzer TV anime, as well as its OAV and upcoming movie. She also played the character while narrating a commercial for the Brad Pitt film Fury. She also played the character of Io Mizusawa in the White Album 2 TV anime, and Kekio Totsugawa/Pink Lovely Doom in Futari wa Milky Holmes.
