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.

Seiyuu Idol Gallery


Seiyuu followers may like to give this gallery some scrutiny, containing so many idollish seiyuu as it does. Since there were many images to select from, this gallery is even devoid of the usual awful/charming seiyuu blog pictures, tending to show them at their photogenic/photoshopped best instead.

Please refer also to the first and second seiyuu galleries previously published. The adventurous way wish also to refer to the gallery of trendsetting blubber idol Aya Hirano, or to porn star seiyuu Yurika Ochiai.
