Talent management company Arts Vision has announced that voice actor Yuichiro Umehara has been discharged from the hospital. The agency said that Umehara will slowly return to work, but the agency will continue to take his physical condition into consideration.
The talent agency reported in May 2018 that Umehara was hospitalized after being diagnosed with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), an autoimmune disease that affects the nervous system. The post at the time said that Umehara would take an indefinite hiatus from work.
The new post from Arts Vision stated that while he was being treated in the hospital, Umehara had a complication of intracranial hypotension, but after medical treatment and rehabilitation, his doctors discharged him from the hospital with no worries about after-effects.
