We get a distinct hint as to the possible political leanings of seiyuu 加藤英美里 / Emiri Katou, best known for voicing Lucky Star’s (or should that be Red Star’s) Kagami Hiiragi, with her shameless appearance in the pages of admitted communist newspaper 赤旗 / Akahata (Red Flag).
The article in question is a feature on her experiences as a seiyuu, and what the job entails, seemingly unsubversive enough, if we discount the fact that it constitutes commercial support of the Party.
In her defence, Akahata does regularly feature showbiz articles (the irony apparently being lost on them), though it is hard to see how anyone would opt to feature in such an extremist publication without realising it might attract attention, just as it has.
Whilst there are doubtless those who will argue either that her political leanings are a private matter, or that featuring in a red publication does not necessarily constitute an endorsement of tyrannical socialism, it seems so public an association with, and therefore tacit an approval of, such a publication can only lead observers to the conclusion that she is at least tolerant of such politics, and does not mind it being known.
