As reported by Japanese tabloid Shūkan Bunshun, Furuya, 70, had a four-year affair with a fan 37 years younger than him.

After much repercussion, the voice actor used the social network X to confirm that the report was true and confessed that, at one point during their relationship, he attacked her and made her have an abortion after getting her pregnant.


I cannot apologize enough for betraying the trust of all my fans who have supported me over the years, disappointing them, hurting them and tarnishing my character,” Furuya said in part of the statement.

Atlus posted a statement on its website on Tuesday (11), confirming that Furuya will be removed from the game and replaced by a new actor.


Atlus Co, Ltd is announcing that due to various circumstances, voice actor Toru Furuya, who was announced to appear in the new RPG Metaphor: ReFantazio, scheduled for release on October 11, will be replaced.
