Mayoi Neko Roadshow -- Itou Kanae, Taketatsu Ayana, Iguchi Yuka

The three main female seiyuus in Mayoi Neko Overrun are doing a roadshow to publicize the anime for DVD sales. Here are a couple of photos from the Tokyo stop (the main Gamers store, in Akihabara). They go on to Osaka and Nagoya.

Aya-nyan (Taketatsu Ayana) says in her blog that it was great to see everyone's smiling faces, and thanks people for their support. Kanae-chan says obscurely that it is good to be asked questions you aren't always asked. Pics from Aya-nyan's (right) and Kanae-chan's (left) blogs.

Left-hand picture, left to right: Taketatsu Ayana (Nozomi), Itou Kanae (Fumino), Iguchi Yuka (Chise).


The pics make Yukachii (Iguchi Yuka) look tall, but that's only because the other two are so short. Kanae-chan 147cm (4'10"-), Aya-nyan 149cm (4'11"-), Yukachii 157cm (5'2").

There was also a surprise birthday celebration for Yukachii. Her 22nd birthday is today (Sunday). Among her well-known roles are Index in To Aru Majutsu no Index, Aiko in true tears, and Kaede in Nyan Koi. She works for the prestigious Office Osawa agency, with seiyuu such as Kawasumi Ayako, Noto Mamiko, and Hanazawa Kana.

But it hasn't been a great week for her. First, it was announced that another seiyuu (Kanemoto Hisako) will get the role of Ika Musume this fall, which she had been rumored to get. Then, a nude photo was circulated on 2channel, purporting -- falsely, it is pretty obvious -- to be Yukachii.

Taketatsu Ayana gets cuter and cuter.

I never realized Iguchi Yuka is so young...She was in Maburaho, wasn't she?

@Ray -- She started with an unnamed role in Petit Princess Yucie in 2002, and then was Akari in Di Gi Charat Nyo in 2003. So she debuted at 15-16.

But she was not in Maburaho. That (in 2003) was Inokuchi Yuka, another seiyuu whose name is so similar that she changed to using all syllabic characters to write it.
