Seiyuu Video: Kuwashima, Houshi, Koyasu, Nakata, et al., in the Studio

Here's a video from the recording of Argento Soma ten years ago. It features some amazing names: Kuwashima Houko, Houshi Souichirou, Koyasu Takehito, Nakata Jouji, Inoue Kikuko, Takahashi Hiroshi, Horie Yui, and others.

We get a glimpse of what a real anime recording studio is like, and a touch of the seiyuus' dance back and forth to the mics:



ID key: Kuwashima Houko (in purple/black), Houshi Souichirou (in red/white check shirt), Koyasu Takehito (in black v-neck), Nakata Jouji (black shirt with white stripe on sleeves), Sayuri (face blocked by script), Inoue Kikuko (red dress), Kawasumi Ayako (deep v-neck black blouse), Chafurin (fuzzy hair and jowls), Takemura Hiroshi (Japanese jacket and ponytail), Takada Yuuji (pale western shirt), Takahashi Hiroshi (grey STP shirt), Horie Yui (in red, with long hair).

Amusing how some people haven't changed for 10 years. But for some others they're quite different. Souichirou looked like a schoolboy with that hair.

Hiya hashi, this is off-blogtopic but, I was musing to myself today and I have to say that you really have an eye for budding talent. You started giving praise to Hanazawa Kana and now she's getting major roles for like, everything. Too bad seiyuu industry isn't like the stock market though; I couldn't take your predictions and invest in a seiyuu as a company...

@Anonymous -- Like the stock market, I think I'm one hit for ten misses, lol. But certainly, right now the voice that keeps striking me is Yuuki Aoi -- although other people saw her first, in Kure-nai, where I was not as enthusiastic as they were.

In her show Yumeiro Patissiere, there is also an 11-12 year old seiyuu called Iino Mayu who is doing an excellent job with a character called Caramel. Maybe she'll be the next big thing -- in a few years.
