I was randomly clicking through videos on YouTube and this is the one time where I did not end up on the weird side of it. What I've found is something to do with my most favorite female voice actress - Kana Hanazawa! I won't say anymore; just watch her have a photo shoot trip … Continue reading I, a fanboy, want to share some happiness!
Now, we are onto the good stuff (not that the previous part was of bad things). Before we go I'd like to share some thoughts on morals and what they have to do with fan service, if they do at all. People tend to overlook good doings since most of them are considered normal/neutral. Good deeds … Continue reading Fan Service: The goods we usually overlook (Part 4)
I did a write up on the topic of seiyuu and music so I might as well give out my view on this piece of work. It was among many works I've had to watch in order to make sure that the topic I wrote about was not full of crap. Since this will be my first … Continue reading Sore ga Seiyuu! – My Opinionated View
Let me first get a horrible joke out of the way. Blasting my headphones with music from Earphones, hah! A personal description to this song would be 'feeling fancy while kicking ass in Kung-Fu'. That was at least how I felt when my ears got used to the tunes this song provided. I would then … Continue reading Blasting My Headphones: Earphones – それが声優! (Sore ga Seiyuu!)

THE iDOLM@STER may have brought the idol vibes into anime but there were still gaps left to fill, some aspects to master (what a pun!). Anime fans were starting to accept that their voice actors (VA) do pretty much everything a non anime related idol could. Though they were only starting to, not entirely. What THE … Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: Seiyuu = Idol(s) (Part 3)
At this point (K-On! madness) it became clear that the bar to becoming a seiyuu has been raised. I'm very certain that a few paragraphs to do with 'singing & promotional live events' have been added in any given contract for new VA's at the time. I'm not saying that seiyuu cannot sing; it was more … Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: Following through (Part 2)
I think that I'll be doing this in three or four parts instead of a one big and long post, for personal reasons... From about this time (Japan's 2017 winter anime season) and onward, it is safe to say that you'll never again, come across a season without at least two or three anime titles … Continue reading Songs by Seiyuu: What was the deal then?
