A new report from Japan has confirmed voice actor Masatomo Nakazawa has tested positive for COVID-19 after a recent test. The actor was given the diagnosis earlier today after taking COVID-19 test before a scheduled event. Now, the Haikyuu and Nobelesse star is recovering in quarantine where he has remained asymptomatic so far.
The report, which was brought to overseas fans by Anime News Network, says Nakazawa felt something may have been wrong after having stomach pains and nausea. He had to take a mandatory COVID-19 test shortly after his nausea arose in order to take part in a schedule media event. Nakazawa took the test, and it came back positive for COVID-19.
As for when Nakazawa contracted the disease, there is no firm date. The best guess comes from contact tracers who believe Nakazawa was first infected in late September as mild symptoms began cropping up as early as September 24.
If you do not know who Nakazawa is, then you will likely know his voice. The actor is a popular one in the anime industry as he has a slew of titles under his belt. He is best known for working on shows such as Haikyuu, FLCL Progressive, Noblesse, and others like Silver Spoon. We are wishing Nakazawa the very best as he rests and recovers.
