Here I was hoping Aya was on the road to normalizing her career, but that notion seems to be in my dreams. In reality, her career is becoming a large looming uncontrollable nightmare. Her recent revelations about her love life have caused quite a stir among her fans, creating lots of unnecessary and ultimately harmful drama. How Aya is coping with this is something we’d all like to know.
Oh, well, in any case, if you do have something you’d like Satomi Sato to say or a question to ask her, head over to Danny Choo’s website. Choo will interview her for the debut of his new show, “Culture:Japan,” and is taking phrase-requests, questions and fanart from his audience.
Take note: the show airs on June 12, but he’ll film it on June 3. So don’t be like our favorite absentminded drummer and wait until the last minute.
Aya Hirano, who was recently cast as Dende in Dragonball Kai, will record a Dende character song for the upcoming Dragonball Kai Song Collection CD. The song, entitled “Cure~Boku ga Koko ni Iru you~”, will appear alongside other DBK music, including the OP “Dragon Soul” and ED “Yeah! Break! Care! Break!” by Takayoshi Tanimoto, and songs by Yo Yamazaki and Ryo Horikawa (Vegeta’s VA). The CD is set to be released on October 21st.
Dragonball Kai’s OP and ED, both rolled into one convenient video, can be found below.
ANN is reporting that Aya Hirano, the voice of Haruhi Suzumiya, is slated to portray Dende in upcoming episodes of Dragonball Kai. Dende’s brother Cargo will be voiced by Satomi Satou, who played Ritsu in K-On!
Dragonball Kai is a HD remastering of Toei’s popular anime Dragonball Z, and features a condensed plotline which follows the manga more closely than the original series. All voice acting is being rerecorded for Kai; however, since the original seiyuu who portrayed Dende and Cargo, Tomiko Suzuki, passed away in 2003, it was necessary to find new actors.
