Here's hoping that everyone in Japan and in areas affected the earthquake and tsunami are safe and alright. Good news to see that these seiyuu are safe and sound for now.

Matteas said...

Yonezawa Madoka is safe too. And I believe so is Yuuki Aoi. I pray for everyone's safety.

Anonymous said...

Momoi Haruko is safe too.

Peanutbutter003 said...

Wow, a roll-call. Didn't even expect this.

Hope everyone is alright.

hashi said...

@Matteas -- I don't know which part of Chiba Ao-chan lives in, but it's probably the side toward Tokyo and therefore not exposed to the tsunami, just the same moderate shaking as Tokyo. So I expect she is okay, too. But there is no word on that in her blog, on her home page, or on 2channel.

This roll-call is a bit of a lark, in a way, since I don't expect anyone to really be hurt. But it's nice to get a feeling of the community of fans and seiyuus. Fans post their concern on 2channel, and seiyuus post that they are okay in their blogs.

Andrew said...

Kaori Fukuhara is all right as well. Unfortunately I think she's said before that she has family in Fukushima, one of the hardest-hit areas. Minorin said she also has family in the devastated area. :( And I feel badly for Minako Kotobuki since this possibly brought back bad memories of the Kobe quake.

In a way this makes the tragedy all the more personal. The devastation may not be as apocalyptic as in Haiti, but an event like this still hurts the soul.

Yes, I obviously hope Ao-chan gives her word soon. I think that burning oil refinery was near Chiba.

trzr23 said...

Wow. Nice to see most of them safe. I hope seiyu and normal citizens make it through. The death toll is at 1000 already...

Thanks for the info, mate :)

And so is Sakura Nogawa (Hinaichigo in Rozen Maiden).

Karissa said...

Yusa Koji is safe I believe from twitter of people's tweets, one of them contained:

Sakaguchi Shuuhei (阪口周平) Toriumi Kousuke (鳥海浩輔) Tachiki Fumihiko (立木文彦) Taketora (武虎) Yusa Koji (遊佐浩二) Yuuki Hiro (優希比呂)

and one said:

Does anyone have any news about Norio Wakamoto, Shuuichi Ikeda, Tohru Furuya, Nobuo Tobita, Ryo Horikawa, Nobuyuki Hiyama, Mamiko Noto, Yuu Kobayashi and Rie Kugimiya?

Besides people that are already on the list, I've been looking for them, but I can't find anything.

Aoi Yuuki is safe!

hashi said...

Yuuki Aoi has blogged apologizing for causing people worry and saying she somehow made it home. She thanks the people who helped and encouraged her on the way. I'm picturing something like the journey on foot in Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, but she hasn't given any details.

Over the past few hours (during which I have been asleep), numerous other seiyuus have been reported safe. I will make a new post listing only those not yet heard from.

Kappei Yamaguchi

Any Information about this Seiyuus?

hashi said...

@ 2x anonymous -- In the two lists, I have info about only two of the names: Yamaguchi Kappei is okay, Orikasa Ai is on the no-word list. No info on the others, unless some are with agencies that have checked on all their people (see post for agency names).

Sorry, I don't have time to check all those names right now, since it would mean first finding out how to write them in Japanese, then checking ja.Wikipedia for their agencies.

Dagmara said...

If anyone knows what with Keiko Han and Satomi Koorogi, I would be very grateful for the information.

1. Houshi Souichirou has been reported safe.

2. Kugimiya Rie has been reported safe by Asanuma Shintarou, as anonymous and KamiyaCheap say.

On 2channel, people are praising Asanuma for using his twitter to retweet seiyuu information. He is a major source for info about a lot of people. Apparently he comes from Iwate, one of the most affected areas.

3. Taguchi Hiroko reports herself safe. As does Naruse Mia.

For the person that asked about Rumiko Takahashi, Anime News Network had contacted Shogakukan about her, and they replied saying that Rumiko is fine.
