Takagaki Ayahi on Wrestling Radio Show?

I'd read that Takagaki Ayahi (Noe in true tears) was supposed to be a fan of pro wrestling, but now she is going to co-host a wrestling-focused radio program.

The show is called "Hustle Every Night" (夜ナ夜ナハッスル), and is produced by a wrestling group called "Hustle Fighting Opera." The purpose of the show is to cater to female and young fans.

The group photo shows her with her co-host, the president of the wrestling group (a wrestler himself), and the group's "PR lady." There is a little video of the press conference.

I've been disappointed that Takagaki-san is not getting more roles, but at least here she has a chance to make a bit of money. I thought she was outstanding as a voice and as an actress both in true tears and in Da Capo II Second Season (in which she played Otome).

A number of seiyuu are said to be fans of pro wrestling, but I always thought that was a bit of a joke. Perhaps not.

I found this info on her blog, where I was looking at a charming photo of her standing on the breakwater that features so prominently in true tears. She was on a visit to Toyama, where the anime was set. Ayahime in real life appears to be a tiny dynamo.

This fall, Ayahime has two comparatively minor roles, one in Gundam00, and one in Kyou no Go no Ni (Today in Class 5-2).
