Lucky Star VAs Meet Their Fans

The four main VAs in Lucky Star -- Hirano Aya (Konata), Katou Emiri (Kagami), Fukuhara Kaori (Tsukasa), and Endou Aya (Miyuki) -- held two "handshake meeting" events last weekend, and will hold two more this coming weekend.

These events are pretty common for seiyuus in Japan. Otaku line up and each gets a chance to shake hands and have a brief conversation with each seiyuu. Here are a picture of the group and of the session, from Katou Emiri's blog. (back, l-r) Endou Aya, Fukuhara Kaori, Hirano Aya, Katou Emiri; (front) Shiraishi Minoru, who apparently kept everyone entertained.



Katou-san thanked everyone for coming and said that although it was the first time she'd ever done one, it was a lot of fun to be able to speak with people one to one. She thanked the people who gave her gifts.

On Fukuhara Kaori's blog, she said that it was great to meet people and that it made her very happy that so many people knew her name and even remembered things she had posted on her blog. She said she was very nervous at first, and apologized if she had seemed uncomfortable. She also thanked people for their gifts and notes, and said that the whole thing really energized her.



Hirano Aya was the first to post something about the event, on her blog, and thanked people for coming out in such bad weather. She mentioned that the weather miraculously cleared up for them. She said that didnt make her a "clear-weather girl" 晴れ女 who brought good weather, but implied that the weather did keep clearing up for her events. On 2channel, people said that Aya was indeed a "clear weather girl." Aya said it had been a long time since she had done one of these, and she enjoyed it and invited people to the ones this coming weekend.



Last weekend's sessions were at the Animate and Gamers stores in Omiya, which is on the outskirts of Tokyo. They shook hands with around 200 people at Animate. The attendees got their places by going to stores ahead of time to register for a chance to get a ticket. Next Saturday's events will be at the main Animate and Gamers stores in Akihabara, in Tokyo. Animate and Gamers are big anime-manga-game chains.

Who's the guy in red? :o

That's Shiraishi. You obviously haven't been paying attention to the latest ED's. I think he's now one of the few seiyuus I can recognize instantly, no thanks to his antics.

Ahh... Aaya-chan's a fair-weather girl eh :). She's truly destined for greatness... let's just hope it doesn't affect her all to negatively. I still don't agree with her blonde makeover previously :P.

Also, I'd so love to meet Emiri Katou. Kagamin~~~ <3. Maybe one day, one day, I'll have a chance to see them in person.

It's pretty nice of VAs to take time off the studio and go out to greet their fans like that. Makes them all the more "down to earth", and with Hirano Aya, she sure makes it worthwhile.

@lenners -- Further to what kurogane said, that's Shiraishi Minoru, who plays himself as one of the two charcters in the Lucky Channel segment of the show, and has done the past three EDs.

@kurogane -- I always liked the dyed hair, even though I generally don't like the idea of Asians making their hair look more like Caucasians'. It was nowhere near blonde, really -- and nowhere near as light as they show it when they show Aya in ep15 of Lucky Star.

Kurogane said...

Well, growing in an Asian enviroment, I'm pretty much used to black hair. It's pretty hard to see an Asian sporting blonde hair fashionably and in taste.

Suprisingly, the blonde Aaya rendered in Lucky Star looks pretty good lol. But then, that's the power of the anime medium, heh. Blonde hair is pretty much "normal" when you consider blue and purple or even green hair that is prevalent in the medium. But in real life.... :P.
