I just watched APH’s seiyuu event – Marukaite Kanshasai last midnight. Let me highlight some of my favorite and some summaries(listed by seiyuu order, not segment order): (warning: uber fangirlism over seiyuus)
- 安元洋貴(Germany)Yasumoto Hiroki is the emcee. I’m a fan of his so you should know why I love him being the emcee. I’m addicted to his laugh, uwaaa~! I like that deep voice of his, it’s just overflowing with sexiness. In the latter part of the event he was in a tank top! He’s so fit! In the ‘what country do you want to voice aside from your character’ segment, he answered ‘pony’ and did horse sounds, LOL! He could also make a really GOOD France(based on chara shuffling!) In the first chara voicing segment, he was with NamiDai(so it looked like GermanyxItaly) Masayan was teasing them as ‘lovers’ and the audience went ‘KYAAAA’ Angen said that he can’t understand why were they kyaaa-ing. XD In the second segment: “What do you think about your Character CD?” he was telling why his chara CD only of drums while the others had good audio BG. XD
- 浪川大輔(N/S.Italy)Namikawa Daisuke was in an outfit where I can mistake him as a gondolier/sailer! He’s so cute when he voices Veniciano! In the ‘what country do you want to voice aside from your character’ segment, the audiences were shouting: “Romano! Romano!” Then NamiDai told them, “But I also did Romano!” But still he did Romano and also Veneciano: “Why is Spain not here today?” and told them that he doesn’t want to voice America. But he did a America voice SO WELL!!! ;w;
- 高橋広樹(Japan)Takahashi Hiroki, oh I just squealed when I saw him! Again, he’s one of my fave seiyuus. His intro speech was so formal based on his chara, Nippon dakara! I loved the part where he was trying to do a Malay/Indo dance because Konitan told them that he wanted to voice those countries(they were inexistent though LOL!)In the ‘what country do you want to voice aside from your character’ segment he answered that he wanted to do Chibitalia! XD I love his clothes too. His hands were really expressive that it was so sexy!>///<
- 杉山紀彰(UK)Sugiyama Noriaki IS THE CUTEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN! Hmm, highlights..Too many but what gives! I’m gonna list what I remember anyway. His entrance was of him bringing a UK flag at his back! In the ‘what country do you want to voice aside from your character’ segment, Non-tan didn’t know that he was up next not until everyone started looking at his direction(kawaii~)! He answered Russia and then Konitan said(in a Canada voice) “Kikitai~Kikitai~(I wanna hear it~) so he said in a Russia voice: “Voooodkaaaa!!” then the audience went wild and Angen asked him to do ‘Paaasstaaaa’ and Non-tan did it too! He was also asked to shout ‘Yaaa!!” and Angen said that he’s a ‘Majime ii hito'(very sincere/serious person). In the second segment: “What do you think about your Character CD?” while he was explaining(btw his UK Chara CD’s intro is like a rock music) Masayan was nodding his head(non stop) then the others except Angen were doing it too so it looked like they were making fun of him(Non-tan said: “Everyone?!”) but Angen told Non-tan to continue and to not mind them, so he continues to talk then while the others stopped, Masayan, TakaYasu and Kaida were still doing it. Then when Masayan was FURIOUSLY shaking his head Angen quietly told Kaida and TakaYasu to stop(so Masayan is left) LOL! Masayan stopped and was really tired! Non-tan asked him if he was okay(aww~) and Kaida gave Masayan some money offering(I think?I can’t see it that much). The third segment was…NON-TAN’S BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!Kyaaaa! The cake was the cake with green icing that America made in APH, but instead of ‘Merry Xmas’ what was written was ‘Happy Birthday’ Non-tan said that he didn’t know of this and thanked everyone. Konitan was even asking if it was edible because of the wet tissue LMAO. They all asked Non-tan to taste the cake, so after he tasted and said that it was good, the seiyuus started to get forks and crowded towards the cake(leaving Non-tan alone aww~haha!). The seiyuus even took a picture, not facing the audience so the output looked like the audience was at their back(So sweet~). Fourth segment, character voicing and shuffling, the 30th episode(UK’s visit to Japan) the audience were squealing when he voiced UK’s ‘hetalia’ and UK being half naked. The 34th episode, the audience squealed at his ‘hetalia’ again, Angen asked him if he was okay and he said yes, Angen told them that if Non-tan is okay then everything is okay(awww!). In the 31st episode(chara shuffling with 7 others) he was still UK! LOL. No change at all. Gee, sorry for Non-tan’s highlights. He’s just so cute that I cannot NOT share! XD
- 小西克幸(America/Canada)Konishi Katsuyuki, OMG! I never thought he was this tall.Mmm..I LOL’d as he entered the stage! He was wearing a brown leather jacket and bringing a burger and munched it! So into his chara, ne? So after the welcoming, they were telling him that they’re already in the stage(and he was still eating) 8D At some angles, he looks like You-kyan!Maybe it’s because of the body build, not too skinny/not too fat. There was this scene that he was asking forgiveness to Piroki being alone, he knelt and bowed…and lay flat on the floor. LOL XD In the ‘what country do you want to voice aside from your character’ segment he answered Indonesia and Malaysia(not existing though hehe). Masayan also told him that his bestfriend is ‘games’ XD At the ending speech, he started it as ‘Canada da yo’ and oh my kyaaaa. >//<
- 小野坂昌也(France)Onosaka Masaya, SO EROI!!! I now declare my love for this guy! His entrance and everything! He’s the second seiyuu that I’ve encountered to be this eroi, first is NariKen of course! XD He was beside Non-tan and was teasing him often. He did this naughty face and the seiyuus were covering his face(they did this often!)LMAO. He says he would choose Italy in the first segment because it looks easy
- 甲斐田ゆき(China)Kaida Yuki, she definitely enjoys voicing China! She says she liked the intro of China’s chara CD She’s so cute, she even wore a necklace with panda pendant and brought a panda bag with a panda purse inside and another small panda container and a panda coin purse inside the panda container I would love to have those ^^;;
- 高戸靖広(Russia)Takato Yasuhiro, KOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOLKOL moment for the win. He has such a young voice despite his age. He says he would like to voice France! LOL! And Masayan was pressuring him!! Then when they asked a sample, he said something eroi(which was censored) then Masayan followed then Sasanuma Akira followed!! IT WAS A SERIES OF CENSORS!! LOL He was also holding Kaida Yuki’s panda bag for a long time(maybe he likes it XD)
- 笹沼尭羅(Austria)Sasanuma Akira, he has so many fans! In the ‘what country do you want to voice aside from your character’ segment he said that he wants to voice Japan because he’s pessimistic. Piroki suddenly defended Nippon and said that Nippon is not pessimistic, he’s only modest.(Piroki was asking if that’s the only thing why Akira wants to voice Nippon) Akira confirms that it isn’t Australia but AUSTRIA.
- 高坂篤志(Prussia/Greece)Kousaka Atsushi, his singing was kind of disturbing. Yes it was good but it was kind of forced. *pities his throat* @@
- 金田アキ(Chibitalia)Kanada Aki, HER CHIBITALIA VOICE IS SOOOOOOOOOOO CUTE! OAO I was surprised to know that she wants to voice Prussia! But her normal voice was kind of low so I think she was good at sampling Prussia.
- 金野潤(Holy Roman Empire)Konno Jun, don’t have anything to say about this guy x-x
If you want to watch it you could buffer it here(not complete afaik) in Tudou.
