Seiyuu Video: Kamiya Hiroshi's "Nyaan!"

At a live appearance, Kamiya Hiroshi meows like a cat -- to the great delight of a largely female audience.

In the clip, egged on by the audience and by the seiyuus appearing with him, he does both the male and female character in a sketch, and delights the crowd by going "nyaan" (i.e., meow) like a cat:

Kamiya won the Seiyuu Award as top leading male of 2009 for his role of Araragi in Bakemonogatari, and is now playing both Rico in Arakawa - Under the Bridge and Izaya in Durarara.
