The production team for currently airing anime series “Tada-kun wa Koi wo Shinai” (Tada Never Falls in Love) announced via the series’ official Twitter on Tuesday that Tomokazu Sugita will be replacing Yuuichirou Umehara as voice actor for the character Hajime Sujimoto (otherwise known as affectionately as “Pin-senpai”).


This announcement of character voice actor replacement followed shortly after Umehara’s management agency Arts Vision announced that the 27-year-old voice actor has been hospitalised and is currently undergoing treatment for acute disseminated encephalomyelitis. They also mentioned that all voice-related works and public appearances will temporarily halt for Umehara whilst he is undergoing treatment.

Tomokazu Sugita will take on the voice-role with immediate effect starting with the series’ newest episode 11 – scheduled to go on air on 14 June 2018 (Thursday). The announcement ended with a heartfelt well-wish for “Umehara-san’s speedy recovery and return to work” from all the staff on the production team of “TadaKoi”.
