akikan-quality-anime-1.jpg

Perhaps tiring of being criticised for being entirely bereft of production quality, quality anime Akikan has opted to simply abandon the tedious business of animating characters and instead just film the seiyuu having a chat, replacing the normal episode with it. Fans quickly noted the increase in production values.

Seiyuu Recording Videos

rie-kugimiya-recording.jpg

This rather interesting compilation video shows various seiyuu, especially tsundere queen Rie Kugimiya, recording their roles, often showing them together with the actual anime. The results are rather interesting, particularly when dealing with such high level seiyuu…

Akikan Seiyuu Monkey Cosplay Abuse

akikan-cosplay-aiko-ookubo-1.jpg

Quality anime Akikan has attracted attention not only for its unique production values, but also for the bizarre treatment it metes out to its seiyuu. Above is the spectacle seiyuu 大久保藍子 / Aiko Okubo was reduced to, cosplaying a monkey whilst reading the ecchi bits from the original novel.

Below you see some of the previous costumes she wore whilst reading similar ecchi passages at each episode’s end:

Much maligned Hollywood Dragonball “remake” Dragonball Evolution, due stateside on the 8th of April, is set to receive a Japanese dub featuring the voice talents of top seiyuu (and comedy idols) such as Aya Hirano, in a move which may give the film some mild otaku appeal, finally.

Aya Hirano herself will be voicing Bulma, pictured above.

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

minamike_okaeri_ed_zettai_karafuru_sengen.jpg

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

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

haruhi-bikini-003.jpg

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:
