After ten years at Hirata Office, voice actress Chiaki Omigawa is leaving the agency and representing herself.
This screencap from her official website (which is currently down, presumably for renovations in the wake of the news) announced her decision to her fans on New Year’s Eve.
In her time before going independent, Omigawa appeared in a variety of roles, including Nazuna in Hidamari Sketch, P-ko in Arakawa Under the Bridge, and Naomi in Bungo Stray Dogs. She’s set to reprise her role as Mutsumi in the upcoming Seitokai Yakuindomo anniversary film.
We wish her all the best in this new stage of her career.
