Voice Actress Yukari Tamura Cancels Concert & Radio Shows, Puts Site on Hiatus
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Yukari Tamura's official fan club "Mellow Pretty," as well as her music record company King Records and her talent management agency I'm Enterprise, announced "important" upcoming changes on Wednesday.
Her previously announced "Tamura Yukari 2016 Fuyu Live Kaisai" concert has been cancelled due to "various circumstances" that made the concert impossible to hold. She had announced the concert last year during her "Yukari Chan-nel 9" Nico Nico livestream.
Her "Tamura Yukari no Itazura Kuro Usagi" radio program, as well as her "Kissa Kuro Usagi ~Himitsu Kobeya~" radio program will both end, with the former's last broadcast taking place on March 26, and the latter's last broadcast taking place on March 25.
Her tamurayukari.com official website will undergo maintenance starting on March 21, during which the site will be inaccessible. No date for the site's reopening has been announced.
The official Twitter account of her staff will close on March 20.
Starting on April 1, the operating company of her "Mellow Pretty" fan club will change ownership. Members will be informed to verify their personal information before the transfer.
Tamura posted in her blog last March that she thought 2015 would be a year of farewells for her, and made oblique references to "the beginning of the end" and a "slow countdown." She quoted, "Even though we're apart, it's not like we can never meet, so it's all right," but added that this was just a lie. She concluded, "I always lie to my heart."
Tamura is perhaps best known as the voice of protagonist Nanoha Takamachi in the Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha anime franchise. She has also voiced characters from such anime as Galaxy Angel (Ranpha), Kanon (Mai Kawasumi), Clannad (Mei Sunohara), Tantei Opera Milky Holmes (Saku Tooyama), Kill la Kill (Nui Harime), and Schwarzes Marken (Beatrix Brehmer). She has performed theme songs for many of the anime in which she has voiced a role, including Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Katanagatari, Oreimo, No-Rin, and I Can't Understand What My Husband Is Saying.
She has released 35 singles and 12 albums, with her 33rd single, "Himitsu no Tobira kara Ai ni Kite" (featuring the theme to No-Rin) being her 10th single that ranked within the top 10 in the Oricon weekly single chart.
