Seiyuu Video: Tomatsu Haruka at 17

This video of Tomatsu Haruka has just been posted on YouTube. It was made when her first starring role, as Corticarte in Polyphonica, was about to go on air. She was 17 at the time, and still in high school.

The video was made for the seiyuu magazine Voicha!



She says she feels nervous -- as if she had to tell us. I'm not sure whether to just enjoy the pictures or to feel sorry for her, surrounded there by all those guys -- photographers, designers, producers, etc. -- using her for their own purposes.

I personally did not enjoy her voice in Polyphonica, and have only liked some of her roles since (Nagi in Kannagi, Mana in White Album, Sakana in Star Driver, and others). But she is doing an excellent job in the quite dramatic role of Naruko in the current AnoHana.
