Director Bashes Seiyuu Miyuki Sawashiro

aruruu

Director Kou Matsuo (Rozen Maiden, Kurenai) has taken the unusual step of publically criticising some of his less than worshipful seiyuu, in a Kurenai radio broadcast, singling out 沢城みゆき / Miyuki Sawashiro (Zetsubou Sensei, Persona 3, Utawarerumono, etc.) for particular opprobrium; though he doesn’t mention her by name, some arithmetic with their ages and the works in question soon confirms her as the likely scamp not showing proper deference to her elders, his main complaint.

For a young lady to omit the proper honourifics in dealing with a man decades her senior is clealry a grievous rebuke to him. For her part, she is expected to cut her belly in the time honoured fashion, in order to restore her honour after this shameful breach of etiquette.

He also complains of the cast taking liberties with his script and questioning his decisions – certainly a very directorly stance to take. He is on a distinguished road.
