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.
Singer, songwriter, voice actress; those words all describe Maaya Sakamoto. She is celebrating her fifteenth year in the business with a new thirty-song greatest hits CD and several concert performances. She can now add a new word to her description; veteran. Approaching her 30th birthday in March she’s spent half her life in the business. In my book that makes you a veteran.
Best wishes from the staff of Project Haruhi on this momentous accomplishment and continued success.
Voting has begun for the 4th annual Seiyu awards, which allows fans to pick their favorite Japanese voice actors and actresses. For the second year in a row, the Tokyo Anime Center is including an English-language Overseas Fan Choice Award category. Last year, that award went to prolific voice actor Jun Fukuyama, who played Lelouch Lamperouge in Code Geass and Luca Angeloni in Macross Frontier, among other roles.
Who will win this year? That’s up to you! Go to the Seiyu Awards website and nominate your favorite seiyu!
