Seiyuu Kobayashi Yuu's New Photo Book Out This Week

Seiyuu Kobayashi Yuu's new photo book came out on Thursday. It's called "two love x one love" (2♥1♥), and is published by gravure magazine Sabra.



This is Yuu-chan's second book of photos. A previous one called "Lovin' Yu" came out in 2008. Modelling is nothing new for her. She was a magazine model before she became a seiyuu.

The sexy photos are a bit of a surprise if you aren't used to them: a lot of disarranged clothing and shots beside a bed.

Yuu-chan, 28, can play both girls and boys. She is Setsuna in the Negima! series, and Hiroshi in Ookamikakushi. Some of her other well-known roles have been Ryouta in Kyou no Go no Ni, Dan in Bakugan Battle Brawlers, and Rio in So-Ra-No-Wo-To. I thought she was excellent as Meiren in Vampire Bund.


She has a two-person rock group called Crush Tears. Yuu-chan is also known as Gahaku 画伯, "Master Painter," for the fairly awful drawings she likes to do.

The photo book comes with a DVD. Here is a sample:

The 80-page photo book, including DVD (Region 2) is available from CD Japan for around US$30.

LOL she's still as polite as always. Her bow was like... 5 seconds long at least XD

I really like her work, tho Rio was a bit of a mess... and I think she's really pretty, plus she probably has one of the nicest figures in the seiyuu world <3

When you look at how she draws and the way she acts onstage, she actually thinks you know, like really think, as the going goes before and even in real-time, perhaps reflections after probably. And really makes efforts in whatever undertakings she takes on. I think that's what make her so charming, she thinks, then interpret it, and execute it in the most extra-ordinary ways. Most seiyuu read scripts, most seiyuus are idols, there's always uniform presentation of humour and chit and chat. But Yuu san is slightly 'enlightening', like the lighting.
