Twenty-four of Japan's top male and female voice actors will read stories of the twelve signs of the zodiac in a pair of new CDs.
DEARS 十二星座物語 Apollon Side and DEARS 十二星座物語 Artemis Side will both come out on January 19. It seems like a good opportunity to hear the voices and styles of some of these top seiyuu all together. Each seiyuu will read a story about the sign they were born under.
The Apollon Side CD features the following male voice actors: Suwabe Junichi (Aries), Toriumi Kousuke (Taurus), Sakurai Takahiro (Gemini), Suyama Akio (Cancer), Taniyama Kishou (Leo), Takahashi Hiroki (Virgo), Sugita Tomokazu (Libra), Ishida Akira (Scorpio), Fukuyama Jun (Sagittarius), Sakihara Tetsuya (Capricorn), Kamiya Hiroshi (Aquarius), Morikubo Shoutarou (Pisces).
The Artemis Side CD features these female seiyuus: Shintani Ryouko (Aries), Satou Rina (Taurus), Kugimiya Rie (Gemini), Saitou Momoko (Cancer), Nabatame Hitomi (Leo), Gotou Yuuko (Virgo), Hirano Aya (Libra), Chihara Minori (Scorpio), Itou Shizuka (Sagittarius), Tanaka Rie (Capricorn), Mizuki Nana (Aquarius), Tamura Yukari (Pisces).
The same company has previously brought out "Tanaka Rie's Hundred Poems," featuring the great RieRie reading the famous Japanese poetry collection "A Hundred Poems by a Hundred Poets" 百人一首. The links at the bottom of this page are two samples of her reading poems. Don't miss them.
