Aisha Tyler, one of the main female lead characters in the anime-inspired series KyoAni, has announced she’s retiring from anime after two seasons.
“After two seasons, I will no longer be participating in the cast of KyoAi.
The time has come for me to move on,” Tyler wrote in a message to fans on Twitter.
“I want to say thank you for all of the support over the past two years.
It has been an honor to be a part of the Kyo Ani family.”
Tyler, who is 24 years old, has appeared in numerous anime, including Sword Art Online, the One Piece spin-off, and Mobile Suit Gundam.
Her other work includes the manga I Want to Live!
and the novel The Princess Bride.
“For a long time, I wanted to pursue a career in acting, but after being rejected from many opportunities, I felt that the world is so full of potential that I had to pursue something more.
This journey was a dream come true,” Tyler said.
“But now, I’m ready to embrace the future.”
Tyler has been cast in a number of anime roles in recent years, including the anime adaptation of the fantasy novels of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, as well as the live-action TV series My Hero Academia, which stars her as a school teacher.
She has also appeared in anime, in live-Action TV and in the Japanese-language animated film Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE.
The show’s second season wrapped in December 2017.
