Minami-ke Okaeri OP & ED Debut on Oricon Top 10


The Minami-ke Okaeri OP and ED songs, Keikenchi Soku Joujou  and Zettai Karafuru Sengen debuted today, placing 8# and 10# respectively on the Oricon Daily Music charts.

The appearance of anison (anime songs) on the music charts is not that uncommon, but as both singles are sung by the Minami trio‘s seiyuu and previously only heard on the three episodes broadcast so far, it follows that the CD’s popularity is made up nearly entirely by fans of the show.

You can hear both songs below:

    They're catchy and much better than Okawari's, but they're basically copy-pasted from the S1 themes (and not just the "experience" and "color" leitmotifs). Still, I like Zettai Colorful Sengen better than Colorful Days.... More

The official Strike Witches Fanbook has just been released, and as you can see from the shots below, is essentially an obligatory purchase for serious Strike Witches fans.

It contains a variety of art, design work, interviews, seiyuu material, etc. Of course, it is not sparing in the ero-department either…

Starving Seiyuu Poor as Church Mice: 80% Work Part-time

Top seiyuu 田中理恵 / Rie Tanaka has recently appeared in Seiyuu Animedia doing a spot of posing in a bunny girl outfit

Seiyuu throughout the land are so hard pressed to find work that the vast majority can only subsist with the aid of additional employment, according to an industry insider.

The insider is しろがねしょおむ / Shomu Shirogane, the director of agency Winner Entertainment.

He has this to say about the business of voice acting:

The Bikini Accident of Suzumiya Haruhi


The bizarre saga surrounding Aya Hirano’s upside down bikini fashion statement, or Aya Style as it has come to be known, will not easily be laid to rest; now we hear of yet another twist, in the form of this cap showing Haruhi (voiced by Aya Hirano prior to her becoming a bikini idol) cameoing in episode 20 of Lucky Star (where Konata also happens to be voiced by same).

Agreeably close examination reveals that the bikini Haruhi here sports bears no small resemblance to that characteristic of Aya Hirano’s elevated fashion sense (or excessive obedience).

Make up your own minds below:

Otaku Stalk Aya Hirano: “Hunt Her Down & Bite Her Meat!”


Obsessed Malaysian otaku have launched a hunt of epic proportions for bikini idol Aya Hirano after it emerged she was in the country briefly for filming; their hysteria has in a day spanned 20 pages and encompassed efforts to check hotels, to analyse her photos and even to track her down using Google Earth, after she unwisely posted pictures from her hotel on her blog.

Their manic efforts have taken on a bizarre sense of farce, as it has emerged that throughout their frantic search Aya Hirano had in fact already returned to Japan, with the result that their hunt was focused on prey already far out of reach.

The Shame of Aya Hirano: Yearns to “Forget” Bikini Incident

The Bikini Disaster of Aya Hirano

Fallen bikini idol Aya Hirano has finally unveiled the not entirely shocking truth of the “Aya Style” debacle, where she happily modelled an upside-down bikini for her gravure calendar, in what has come to be known as “Aya Style“.

This is after having desperately avoiding any acknowledgement of the matter for many months now – a sign perhaps that she is sorely chastened? She goes so far as to give her New Year’s resolution as “I just want to forget.”

The Thong of Aya Hirano

Haruka Tomatsu, Voice of Nagi and Lala


Up and coming seiyuu 戸松遥 / Haruka Tomatsu (Nagi of Kannagi, Lala of To-Love Ru) is still not as visually recognizable as some seiyuu such as Aya Hirano or Rie Tanaka, but she certainly seems to carry enough 3D appeal to become one of the idol seiyuu that have recently become more prominent in the otaku world.

The Posterior of Aya Hirano


Bulk idol Aya Hirano has hefted her corpulent frame onstage once more, this time leaving even less of herself to the imagination than before; eager reporters managed to capture the crucial elements of her performance with the result that her nether regions, including her pantsu, as well as her legs, are visible in some detail:
