At 16:56 of this Q&A Marina Inoue says she would advise people against becoming a seiyuu (work is really irregular). Thoughts?
Also seiyuu thread.
You will find most seiyuu advice against it. It's a big gamble and the market is over saturated.
I've listened to loads of web radios and every time a reader letter that asks advices for becoming seiyuu, the personalities answer "don't do it" or at least "finish university", "be prepared for failure" and such.
Kamiya has said that only people who really love their work can aim for a long seiyuu career since getting popular enough to stay in the business for more than few years is ridiculously hard and even then it might not be enough to pay the bills.
Even Sugita said that a big part of success is being lucky enough to have an audience that likes your voice and new roles that are actually appropriate for your voice.
They have a competition who can make the cutest room in Deresute and she has by far the best.
2/10. The only fatty is Kanako, one of her characters. She herself isn't fat at all and quite tall.
Risa Taneda falls in love with a KENN.
Unable to confess, she is gifted by a deus ex machina with the boy's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, she immediately calls him, and is overjoyed to find out that he has a crush on her as well.
But, the next day, when she recounts the previous day's confessions to the boy, he only looks at each of her with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, she finds out that the boy she called is not the same boy she fell in love with. In fact, he doesn't exist in this universe at all. He is the alternate universe counterpart of her crush, who has fallen in love with her AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of his crush.
Hijinks ensue as they strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip each other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of VOICE ACTING.
Thoughts? It's good advice. Only a couple dozen seiyuu will get a reasonable amount of work over the span of several years. Even if they do, they rely on alternative sources of income to supplement the job. In terms of how rare it is to "succeed", how long a "successful" "career" can expect to last, and how many people get a marginal amount of work, it is comparable to professional sports but without any of the rewards.
Look at her chubby face. She's fat. Not fat like a landwhale but on the lower spectrum of fat.
The other work I'm aware of for popular seiyuu is still in the entertainment industry. The point is that they cannot rely entirely on income from voice acting itself.
Much like people trying to become actors in the US, those who haven't become popular enough to rely on entertainment work normal part-time jobs. That could be anything from serving tables to serving men. This is true of people trying to break in to the entertainment industry in every country which has one.
I never see Ami Koshimizu in these threads anymore. She may not be the hottest, but I don't think she's ugly. Fuck me if her voice doesn't turn my dick into diamonds though, especially when she yells. She also does the lewd voice well.
Is there any other seiyuu as cute and annoying-looking as Takahashi Minami?
The only good thing about this anime adaptation.
W-where and when is this??
She has a normal 3DPD body, she's neither thin nor fat.
Anyone has an autograph of your favorite seiyuu? I have Sumire Uesaka autograph which I took personally.
Her recent masterpiece.
Can somebody decode it?
I am Russian anon. Sumire-chan visited St. Petersburg this summer.
Sorry for the horrible image quality.
Nope, but I managed to get my waifu's seiyuu's signature when she visited a convention up here in Frosty Moe Region.
I haven't seen her mentioned in these threads once but she'll always be dear to my heart.
>you will never pet Sumipe's sumipes
I need more Ibuki in my life. She's so young and cute yet she can do a cold sounding voice like Magata Shiki.
And she's legal now so no guilty faps.
