Sakai and Kanno met on the set of the movie "Ooku ~ Eien~" when filming began in January 2012 and only started dating at the end of the same year after the film was released in cinemas. The couple were first romantically linked in a Sankei Sports article on 22 March 2013 and later submitted their marriage application on 2 April. Since their marriage, Kanno has been restricting her work activities to CMs, events and magazine appearances while Sakai starred in the hit drama "Hanazawa Naoki" in summer 2013, is now seen in the NTV drama "Dr. Rintaro" and will be the lead for next year's NHK Taiga "Sanadamaru".
