Almost looks like a university student, doesn't she? She has always seemed fairly intelligent to me, so perhaps appearances are not deceiving. She joins other university-student seiyuus such as Yuuki Aoi and Hayami Saori, and graduates such as Inoue Marina.
Here is her post, including all the emoticons:
Tonight, Kari-san is
Although I did get a lot of comments on my blog yesterday from people who already knew...
I got into university!
I'm going to be a university student!!
I'm so relieved.
But the important thing is that from now on I really want to work hard at doing both college and work.
So please wish me your best.
She posted again today to thank everyone who had congratulated her. She said she was shocked at how many people sent congratulatory comments to her blog -- three pages' worth. And on the set today, she was given flowers. She said going to university had always been her dream, so she was tremendously happy.
I think that Kaori has been doing a terrific job starring in Rinne no Lagrange as Madoka, and as the important secondary character Kanna in Ano Natsu de Matteiru. She has a special freshness and edge in her voice that I think could make her a long-term success as a seiyuu.
