Cloud Strife Voice Actor Takahiro Sakurai Cheated on His Wife

Takahiro Sakurai, a voice actor known for his work as Cloud Strife in Final Fantasy VII, revealed he cheated on his wife for over ten years. The other woman is “A-ko,” a writer for Sakurai’s radio show “P.S. Genki Desu. Takahiro.” She had no idea that he was already married. [Thanks, Yahoo!]

Sakurai’s radio show “P.S. Genki Desu. Takahiro” recently ended its nine-year run. A-ko was working with Sakurai on the radio show, and she only heard about his marriage right before recording of the final episode started. The shock was so great that she retired from the writing business. According to Yahoo, she went to the emergency room after hearing the news.

A spokesperson for Sakurai stated that he apologized for the situation. The spokesperson has not yet met with Sakurai’s wife. However, the spokesperson stated they believe that Sakurai does feel guilt about what has happened. He has repeatedly stated that he does not want to cause any further problems for A-ko.

Sakurai had a prolific career over the years. Aside from Cloud, his more prominent roles as a voice actor include Kazuya Miyuki in Ace of Diamond, Suguru Geto in Jujutsu Kaisen, and Reigen Arataka in Mob Psycho 100. He also portrayed Rohan Kishibe in JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Now that Sakurai cheated on his wife, it is unclear what will happen to his career. When Tatsuhisa Suzuki’s affair leaked, he went on hiatus. However, when Daisuke Namikawa’s affair came to light, he continued with his voice acting career without a break.
