Tatsuhisa Suzuki, who voices Kibana in Pokeman anime has been replaced with Matsuoko.
This change wasn’t formally announced by the program, but the end credits show that Matsuoko is voicing Kibana. It is not yet known whether this change will be temporary or permanent.
Tatsuhisa Suzuki recently went on hiatus following the cheating scandal with anime singer LiSA. He is mostly known for voicing Draken from Tokyo Revengers, and Ban from Seven Deadly Sins.
According to many Japanese websites, the situation is getting worse for Tatsuhisa Suzuki. Tokyo Sports reported that after the infidelity scandal, many voice actors have unfollowed Suzuki on Twitter, and the environment is quite tense within the voice acting industry.
Another Japanese blog, Cyzo Women published an article reporting that Suzuki is prohibited from participating in Aniplex productions, as part of sanctions allegedly applied by Sony after the scandal incident.
Will Suzuki voice Draken in Tokyo Revengers season 2? It is hard to say for now. Tatsuhisa’s agency has stated that he is taking a break from his professional activities due to his health issues. Many blog websites states that the situation is much worse. Suzuki also wrote a written apology to fans for causing inconvenience.
The good news is that LiSA will be back for the Demon Slayer theme songs.
