Miyata Toshiya is one of the biggest anime otaku in the Johnny's world. He is recognized as an "otaku" even by anime fans, and his rapid progress in the anime world is tremendous.
In this article, we will review Miyata-san's work in the anime industry! Let's take a look back at his activities that have transcended the boundaries of his occupation as an idol and continue to demonstrate his passion for anime.
■Johnny’s and Love Liver! Who is Toshiya Miyata with his two unique faces?
Miyata Toshiya is a Japanese idol from Kis-My-Ft2, which specializes in roller skating performances, made his CD debut in 2011, and has also been active as a member of the derivative unit Busaiku since 2013.
Miyata-san is also an avowed anime otaku. He is also famous as a fan of "Love Live" and has been seen at live events.
He has also appeared on TV Asahi's "Ametalk!" as a "HUNTER x HUNTER Geisha" and has made numerous appearances in various places, including "I was born to read HUNTER x HUNTER!” and many other quotes.
He is known as one of the best anime otaku in Johnny's, but there was a time when he struggled to use his "anime otaku" side to his advantage. When he proposed that he would like to do an otaku performance for his self-produced solo song, the staff and members were against it.
Even so, Miyata's otaku spirit remained unbroken, and he asked Maeyamada Kenichi (aka Hyadain) to write the lyrics for his song, "Otaku datte It's Alright!” At the concert, they wore happi coats and performed perfect calls and sharp otaku tricks. The fans were very excited to see Miyata-san with a smile on his face and in full-blown otaku mode.
■Appeared as a voice actor in "BEM the Movie ~BECOME HUMAN~".
In 2020, he took on his first challenge as a voice actor. He played the role of Burgess in "BEM the Movie ~BECOME HUMAN~". Burgess is Bem's colleague and best friend, and he is a light-hearted and good-natured person. In addition, it is an important role that holds the key to the story.
"He said he was very nervous on the day of recording, but he showed his true colors on the day of the performance! It's hard to believe that this was her first attempt at voice acting, but he did a wonderful job.”
■Appearing in TV shows, writing for magazines... Where there's anime, there's Miyata-san!?
Perhaps due to the "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" boom, there have been more and more variety shows featuring anime and voice actors. As a result, I have the impression that we will see a lot of Miyata-san.
Recently, he appeared on the TBS program "Masahiro Nakai's Friday Smile Tachi He" (broadcast on May 7, 2021), featuring the voice acting agency Aoni Production. Miyata-san can't seem to get over the feeling of performing with his favorite work and the voice actor he admires. He sang “Yuriyura rarara Yuru Yuri Dai Jiken" the OP song of "Yuruyuri” with Mikami Shiori and Tsuda Minami, and was excited to hear Yamaguchi Yuriko, who plays Akagi Ritsuko in the "Evangelion" series, speak live etc....... His elation was palpable even through the TV.
After the broadcast, the voice actor Shimazaki Nobunaga, who is also a good friend of Miyata-san, wrote on Twitter, "Miyata-kun was in great shape. In fact, I'm the same age as Miyata-kun, we've been through the same things, and I feel close to him in many other ways as well.”
Miyata-san is also writing a series of interviews with male voice actors he admires in "TV Guide VOICE STARS" (Tokyo News Tsushinsha). In addition, he has been expanding his activities in the anime world, such as serving as the secondary voice host for "Anisama 2017 All in One" broadcasted on Nico Nico Live in February 2021, together with Sakuma Daisuke (Snow man), a junior member of his talent office.
