Miyano Mamoru

Big news in the seiyuu world last week: Miyano Mamoru (Gundam 00, Vampire Knight, Kurozuka etc) announced in a video message that he is now married, and that he and his wife are expecting a child. Although he loves children, there was a point where he feared it would be impossible for him to become a father, as he received a diagnosis that he was possibly infertile. To Miyano-san and his wife, who has been by his side since he was a teenager, this new life is nothing short of a miracle.

I was just watching the video in which he announced these (wonderful) developments in his life (I won't say where, because the original video was removed), and it shows the immense impact it has on him. It's filled with really long emotional pauses, incredibly unusual for Miyano-san, who's always been full of energy, almost jumping all over the place, in any other video I've seen him in. (Not that I've seen that many, mind). I was reminded of the emotional speeches that my teacher and her husband recently delivered at their wedding ceremony. And that just brought home the fact that celebrities, no matter how much they are idolised by fans etc, they are still people and the joys and worries of everyday people are also a feature of their lives. I hope that some of Miyano-san's more fanatic (former?) supporters will recognise that, and not make such a big deal about him keeping the relationship so tighly under wraps. I wish him and his wife all the best from here on as they create and nurture their family - from what he said, I feel that there will be a lot of love in their home, which is always a good thing.
