Maeda Atsuko is officially dating kabuki actor Matsuya Onoe

27 Sep


On the 24th, it was revealed that former AKB member Maeda Atsuko (22) has been dating Kabuki actor Onoe Matsuya (28) since March this year. The two met through mutual friends, and immediately hit it off due to similar interests in movie and theaters. Even though Acchan had already graduated from AKB48 and was technically free to date, she kept a distance from relationships so as not to disappoint the fans who continue to support her. Knowing this, Onoe Matsuya approached her by calling/mailing her everyday,eventually breaking the ice. It is said that Matsuya’s father died in 2005 but his mother has met Maeda. Maeda has also notified her mother about the relationship to ensure that both families are accepting of the couple.

Other details on Onoe Matsuya – at almost 180cm tall, he comes from the famous kabuki clan “Otowaya” in Japan, and is considered an up-and-coming actor with lots of female fans. It is also said that he was an AKB fan and had even watched their theater performances.

      I’m happy she managed to find someone after Sato Takeru. This guy doesn’t seem as popular but at least he likes her!
