a seiyuu is da japanese equivalent to voice actor. although in japan, becoming a seiyuu is almost identical to being a celebrity themselves. as anime n manga now, being a global phenomenon, seiyuu r much more famous worldwide than other japanese actors n singers. kawaii so…Being a seiyuu is a seriously taken job in japan. (hope Malaysia can be like dat too) 😦 as japan release more animation than other country. so, doing voice works, particularly for anime n video games is considered a sort of art.
a lot seiyuu hv full time voice works n hv been known to hv been popular enough to launch their own music CDs n become singers. example is mie very own mamo-chan..
other than anime n video games (mamo-chan as riku in kingdom hearts), seiyuu also contribute to radio dramas, kigurumi, theatre acting (mamo-chan in prince of tennis musical) 🙂 n japanese dubbing (mamo-chan as percy weasley in HP series).
TOP 15 mie most favourite seiyuu so far:
- Shin-ichiro miki
- Miyano Mamoru
- Katsuyuki Konishi
- Masakazu Morita
- Poku Romi
- Fukuyama Jun
- Ryotaro Okiayu
- Kentarou Itou
- Noriaki Sugiyama
- Kishio Daisuke
- Kenichi Suzumura
- Daisuke Kirii

- Kobayashi Sunae
- Takahiro Sakurai
hv u guyz ever dream of becoming a seiyuu?? well..i have. from last year till da very end. of coz diz idea came from da overdose of anime n manga. (on da way of reaching toxicity level, but not yet an otaku). no laf mie frens. at first non of mie frens know wat ter hack diz seiyuu is all about. but mie kept babbling bout how sugoiii seiyuu is, how can they manipulate their voice easily, how can they make da character looks so real, how diz, how dat, how bla bla bla n how can they look so similar wif da character. Mamo-chan resembles tamaki sempai a lot. shinjirarenaiii… mie alwayz told mie frens to check out da seiyuu video (animegiga) from youtube, n see by their own eyes, how unique is someone who called seiyuu . So finally, on one fine day, on da 11th of November 2008 at about 7 p.m. , mie rumate told mie “i want to become a seiyuu”….. OMG. after one whole year talking (about seiyuu of course) alone like moron, someone at last has da same dream as mie. haaaahhhhhh. cant describe mie feelin at dat time.
so someone out there (in Malaysia) who wan to give a try of becomin a seiyuu…let us try 2gether n achieve da fame (cewahhh) GAMBATTE IKKIMASHOOO!!!!!
