This week has seen an especially copious number of notable (for Akiba) CD releases, with popular seiyuu-singers Nana Mizuki and Minori Chihara both having new CDs, K-ON! receiving its OST, the new Fullmetal Alchemist 1st OP by Yui, and a new Macross F drama CD all coming out on virtually the same day.

Below are some samplings and information about the new releases if your musical tastes are so inclined…

Marina Inoue’s Art


Popular idol-seiyuu Inoue Marina, famous for  numerous roles, such as Yoko Littner from Gurren Lagann and Alicia from Senjou no Valkryia, seems also to have another side to her.

She can draw.

She may be reminiscent of another artistically inclined idol, but her illustrations are far more classy; it may also come as a relief to some to learn that she does not inlude guro art in her portfolio.

You can see her art below:

Seiyuu Surprises – Same Actor, Different Roles

Macross Star: Miyuki vs Sheryl

Macross Star: Miyuki vs Sheryl

Seiyuu, or voice actors, are one of the more recognized workers in the creation of anime, giving our beloved 2D characters the most obvious link to humanity – their voices.

The names of many famous seiyuu are well known among the ranks of otaku, even more so in this decade than past years, but the number of well known professionals involved in the industry is surprisingly small (though unknowns are legion), and even relatively new seiyuu are likely to have worked on a significant number of roles on many varied anime shows.

That the two characters shown above were played by the same seiyuu will be no surprise to many, but there are many other roles from wildly differing characters and series that might prove to be a surprise when one realizes they were played by the same seiyuu…

The Secret Bikini Video of Aya Hirano


The video you see below, a backstage video exclusively distributed to fan club members, provides a glimpse of the inception of Aya Style, the now infamous bikini fashion statement which either saw her credentials as a avant-garde bikini model cemented, or else saw her reduced to an object of ridicule.

It also shows plenty of Aya-pantsu (or bikini bottoms at any rate; see the second video), so is essential viewing for her legion of maniacal otaku stalkers:

Rie Kugimiya Healing


Tsundere queen Rie Kugimiya’s voice talent features in these two interesting videos; one offers the prospect of a night with a character sounding suspiciously like Louise, and is taken from a recent ecchi drama CD featuring the seiyuu. Not following the Japanese is probably no barrier to understanding what is going on…

The other should remind you of Konata Healing, but with a tsundere twist.

Bikini idol and occasional seiyuu Aya Hirano drove Malaysian otaku into a wife-capturing frenzy when she visited Malaysia for reasons then clouded in mystery; it was though she was shooting scenes for one of her productions, but it in fact transpires she was civic-mindedly promoting computer sales to civil servants:
