A variety of anime was aired and released in 2019. It was a good year with many kinds of TV animations and around 80 animation movies were released.
Here on Anime!Anime, we are currently conducting the annual anime general election. We are reviewing 2019, and conducting the survey related to voice actress.
We are asking “the most active voice actor”, whose appeared in famous anime, or played main characters, and “the most favorite voice actor” for both male and female actors. We are going to announce themidterm result.
We received answers from about 500 people from Nov. 15 to Nov. 25.
Ratio was 25% male and 75% female, and we received more votes from female readers. We received many votes from younger voters with the readers who are younger than 19 years old made up about 50% of overall vote, and 20’s made up about 35% of the total vote.
We are going to announce the midterm results for “the most active voice actress”.
■Kitou Akari ranked in top tentatively
The voice actress ranked in the first place was Kitou Akari. The support rating was about 17%. She played several main characters of 2019 anime, such as, Kamado Nezuko from “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba”, and Sarayashiki Karin from “The Ones Within”. She also ranked in the 1st place as she is in “the most favorite voice actress”, and she left the 2nd place behind with the big gap. We wonder if she will continues to widen the gap.
The 2nd place was Uchida Maaya. The support rating was about 5%. She appeared on multiple famous series, such as “The Promised Neverland” and “The Helpful Fox Senko-san”. Although she ranked in the 3rd place in “the favorite voice actress”, she ranked in higher in this ranking. She has a one digit gap with the 3rd place, so the final result cannot be predicted easily.
The 3rd place was Minase Inori. The support rating was about 4%. She ranked in higher than her position in “the favorite voice actress” which she ranked in the 5th place. She appeared in multiple anime movies in 2019, including “Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl” and “Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?: Arrow of the Orion”.
The top of the most active voice actress version has a larger gap between the 2nd place. Whether she keep the top until the final result or will there have a big change, it something that we cannot take eyes off from it.
