No announcement about her role as Rinko Shirokane in BanG Dream!
The official website for Bushiroad's DJ-themed mixed-media franchise D4DJ has confirmed that Kanon Shizaki, who had voiced Rei Togetsu since its launch in 2019, will be stepping down from the role due to various circumstances.
Rei Togetsu is a member of the project's main unit, Happy Around!. The future development of the franchise, including new casting for the character, will be reported in a separate announcement.
While no detailed explanation of the reasons for Shizaki's departure has been given, she says on Twitter, "Thank you very much for your support for Rei Togetsu that I have been playing. It has become unavoidably difficult for me to continue, I am so sorry to all of you. Rei-chan has been and will continue to be a character I love with all my heart. Please continue to support her in the future."
