Singer Mayu Kudou, who you might know from her work on the themes of the Precure franchise or the opening theme song for anime Uchi no 3 Shimai, announced on her official blog that she will retire from the entertainment industry in April 2017.
The reason is simple and quite romantic: She got married to someone outside the industry. She is determined to realize her dream and move forward to this next path and thanked all her fans, the staff that worked with her, her family, and her friends. After all, Mayu was in the industry for 15 years.
