Comment on “Why Are Seiyuu Such Great Artists As Well?” by Sasazuka:

Another thought about Marina Inoue: from what’s posted here, I think she might be a better artist than Coharu Sakuraba, MINAMI-KE’s mangaka, though I admit that may not necessarily be fair, since all I’m seeing from her is single pages of manga at most. I dunno if she can churn out so many pages of art a month like a professional mangaka like Coharu Sakuraba can. It’s one thing to make one nice drawing of a girl, it’s another thing entirely to make 50 different drawings of the same girl in different poses and with different expressions for a single manga chapter.

    So, basically, Marina Inoue, the voice of Kana Minami, should also have done key animation for seasons 2 and 3 of MINAMI-KE. It’d have easily looked better than what Studio Asread’s B team could draw.

  • “Former Seiyuu” Aya Hirano Lands First Leading Role:
    As long as Yuki Nagato is still Minori Chihara, the most irreplaceable voice actress in HARUHI SUZUMIYA, I’ll be satisfied.

  • “Former Seiyuu” Aya Hirano Lands First Leading Role:
    I just watched the final (until July) episode of SPACE DANDY and was pleased to hear Aya Hirano as “Coffee-Maker”, so I suppose she’s not completely out of the seiyuu game quite yet, although I suppose she probably recorded that a few months ago.

  • “Former Seiyuu” Aya Hirano Lands First Leading Role:
    So I guess “former seiyuu” more or less confirms that someone else will be voicing Haruhi Suzumiya in the upcoming anime adaptation of the manga spin-off series THE DISAPPEARANCE OF YUKI NAGATO? Eh, whatever. A little disappointing, but I can live with “wrong-sounding Haruhi”.

  • Sega Hard Girls Nets Anime:
    Speaking of the Master System, though, if I were in charge of writing this anime, I’d make the Master System girl Japanese-Brazilian, in honour of the country where they were still pumping out new Master System games until at least the late 1990s. The Nintendo Entertainment System might have reigned supreme in the 8-bit wars in the United States, but the Sega Master System was predominant in parts of Europe and especially Brazil.

  • Sega Hard Girls Nets Anime:
    I don’t think they have every profile done yet, or at least SANKAKU hasn’t posted every profile. From the main picture, I suspect the Master System is represented by the girl above the star on the left (wearing black with red accents), or perhaps he girl above the 32X girl. I wonder if they’ll have girls for both the Master System and the Mark III (the Japanese version, same hardware but different appearance)?
