Hayami Saori's Voice in TV Ad for "Lovely Bones"?

That's seiyuu Hayami Saori 早見沙織 doing the voiceover in this Japanese TV spot for the current movie "Lovely Bones." At least that's what it sounds like to me and to a couple of posters on 2channel.



Hayamin, 18, starred last year in the animes Eden of the East and Sora no Otoshimono, and has released several songs connected with the latter. She is currently starring in the film release of Eden of the East.

Check out my earlier posts about her.

Sounds like it to me! And, well, I'm happy to see her in something where I don't groan when I realize I'm going to have to choose between not-my-style shows (Sora no Otoshimono, Ladies Versus Butlers, and so on) and going without her for a season. Not that I have any reason to watch The Lovely Bones in Japanese...

@Erin -- It still sounds like it to me, but someone apparently asked and found that it was an Aoni Pro seiyuu called Yoshikawa Miku. Someone posted to 2channel that if you listen with the volume up on headphones, you can tell it isn't Hayamin. Well, I can't, lol. Here's Yoshikawa-san's page on ANN.

Haha, well now I don't have to come up with some ridiculous reason to justify (to myself) finding and watching this in Japanese when I wasn't interested enough in it to watch it in English.

And I can't tell, either... Gosh, they sound alike. I'll attribute it to the length of the trailer or something like that. Now I may have to dig up old episodes with this Yoshikawa to see how much her voice resembles Hayamin's.

I really like Dance in the Vam;ire Bund. I extremely enjoy it since it is different from the manga, if it followed the manga every step of the way I would have been disappointed. I believe strongly that the author had other ideas for this story and by making the manga one way and the anime the other it goes nicely. Because its a what if in many ways. I like reading about Vampires and other supernatural creatures but I don't think that every movie needs to compared to other Vampire movies everyone is different people think about different things. Sometimes everyone thinks of the exact same thing but they always have a little twist of their own. Not every Vampire or supernatural creature movie is the same and I believe people need to understand that. But they have their opinions and I have mine.
