Affair Confession:
On May 22nd, 2024, Toru Furuya admitted to 4-Year affair with a fan which was report by the Weekly Bunshun magazine. He is known for his roles in many series voicing characters such as Tuxedo Mask in Sailor Moon, Amuro Ray in Mobile Suit Gundam, Yamcha in Dragon Ball and Gym Leader Arti from Pocket Monsters.

"I, Toru Furuya, was interviewed by Weekly Bunshun. I would like to apologize and inform you of the transgression I have committed. I had an affair with a female fan for a period of four and a half years until last September. I was attracted to her because of her support for me, and I foolishly contacted her myself to start the relationship.

During our relationship, we argued once and I unintentionally raised my hand. It was the worst thing I could do as an adult and as a human being. I also made the unforgivable mistake of causing her to have an abortion. I am truly, truly sorry that I deeply hurt the other woman, both physically and mentally.

I cannot apologize enough for betraying the trust of all my fans who have supported me for so many years, disappointing them, hurting them, and tarnishing the characters I protrayed. I have also betrayed the trust of all those involved, and I have caused you a great inconvenience. I will sincerely make amends for the rest of my life. I am prepared to accept any consequences that may come my way. I am truly sorry."
