The voice actress Ogura Yui, who is known for her roles as Kagayaki Homare/Cure Étoile in “HUGtto! Pretty Cure” and is also active as an artist, opened her personal Twitter account and YouTube channel on May 9.
On Twitter, she stated that she will post about her daily life and make videos on her Youtube channel, while on Youtube she has already uploaded an “ASMR”, which is a kind of video she likes. Her contents, which show a big part of her private life, are gaining a lot of attention both on Twitter and Youtube, where the first video has already reached a high number of views.
Although she used to have an official account on Twitter and YouTube to report her activities as a voice actor and artist for some time, this is the first time she has made a personal account.
On Twitter, she first posted, “Today, I created my personal Twitter account along with a Youtube channel. (^-^) I will be posting about my daily life and upload videos on the Youtube channel. I'll continue to keep you informed about everything related to my job on the official Twitter account!”. She also added, “I'm so excited to start tweeting about my personal life! I'm looking forward to it”.
Instantly, she received many comments from the fans who are already enjoying her initiative on Twitter; “Congratulations on your new Twitter account, Yui-chan”, “Now that we can't meet each other, I'm really happy about your opening”, “Looking forward to reading many of your carefree tweets”. Ogura-san also replied to that excitement by saying, “It will show my real and personal life! This is gonna be fun!”, “I'm getting a lot of great followers… Thank you, everyone ('▽`)”, etc.
On the other hand, she left a comment about her new YouTube channel “YUI OGURA Ogura Yui ASMR/Beauty”; “I will be posting contents about my favorite ASMR, beauty treatments, and cosmetics”. The first “ASMR” video, which features the sound of eating vegetable sticks and tonkatsu (pork cutlet), has been posted.
It seems that both the shooting and editing she made by herself. In the first half, she keeps eating without saying a word, while in the second half, she starts commenting about her feelings and what she is doing in the video. Fans responded in the comment section, “The volume is low, but it sounds good. She is so cute while eating”, “Thinking of her doing her best at home while recording it gives me a sense of cuteness”, “Despite her being a voice actor, she doesn't say a word… this is so new”, etc.
After receiving so much attention, Ogura-san replied on Twitter, “Thank you for your support! (OvO) I'll do my best!”, leaving the feeling that it will become a popular channel in the future.
On May 10 at 4 pm, Ogura-san has about 136,000 followers on her Twitter account and approximately 393,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.

"#Endless_Eight" has ranked in the trend in Twitter on Aug. 17, 2020 because a famous episode from "Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi" called "Endless Eight" has begun from Aug. 17. Some fans remember the day back then when watching the broadcast, while younger fans are jealous of watching now.
"Endless Eight" is the episode based on the short story in the 5th volume of the original novel titled "Maverick of Suzumiya Haruhi" and also the episode of TV anime "Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi" 2nd season broadcast 2009.
The episode depicts the protagonist Suzumiya Haruhi (CV: Hirano Aya), who repeats her summer vacation, wishing it not to end, and slight changes were made in every episode lasted in consecutive 8 weeks (8 episodes). This became a hot topic at the time of the broadcast.
There were multiple posts on Twitter on Aug. 17, the day of "Endless Eight" broadcast 11 years ago: "Endless Eight...my head hurts...(real-time viewer)", "Oh, today is the day of Endless Eight. I was excited to watch the next episode up to 3rd time, but I did not foresee that it had another 5 episodes", "I thought it was the mistake made by Tokyo MX that they broadcast the same episode for 2nd week, and I could not find the slight change since it was very small. I underestimated the difficulty of the situation in the anime that the characters get out of the loop if they use the whole 3 weeks. I decided to stay quiet in the 5th week, and desired to get out of the loop for 6 to 8th week".
"I think the design of the episode is wonderful. The episode is renewed every week to keep entertain the fans, and the characters are voiced differently each week (although it was tough to watch the similar episode for 8 consecutive weeks)", "I like Endless Eight because I was excited to watch every week by saying, 'finally, finally, this week', but not many people relate to my experience". There are voices from the fans at the time who were forced to watch the same episode 8 times.
While many fans being nostalgic of the "tough episodes", there are comments from younger fans for having such a legendary experience; They said, "I am especially jealous for the fans at the time, who were able to experience Endless Eight", "I think watching Endless Eight every week is a wonderful experience! I am jealous! I wish I could be born earlier!", "I think the people who watched Endless Eight of Melancholy of Suzumiya Haruhi are like the experienced soldiers. If I watch that, I think it is the mistake of the TV station", and "I am a little jealous of people who watched that back then since I am currently watching it now".
It has been announced that Hayami Saori and Ogura Yui will be joining the cast in the coming-of-age fantasy film "Kimi wa Kanata", which is fully set up in Ikebukuro (Toshima City), the land of manga and animation. Also, the staff and the new cast members have talked about their impressions on the work itself and Ikebukuro, which is the main setting of this movie.
"Kimi wa Kanata" is the first challenge as a feature-length animated film for director Sena Yoshinobu. The main cast includes Matsumoto Honoka, who is known for her role as the main character's co-worker Sumiko in the NHK TV drama series “Hiyokko”, and Seto Toshiki, who is known for his role as Kamen Rider Brave in “Kamen Rider Ex-Aid”.
Mio (voiced by Matsumoto Honoka) cares about her childhood friend Arata (voiced by Seto Toshiki), but their relationship appears to be complicated since she can't convey her true feelings to him.
One day, when she is on her way to reconcile with Arata, who had fought over a little thing with her, she is involved in a traffic accident.
When Mio regains consciousness, she opens her eyes and sees a mysterious world unfolding around her.
Hayami will be playing the role of Kuki-chan, a strange girl who helps Mio who has lost her way into the mysterious world, while Ogura will be voicing Mio's friend in the real world, Madoka.
"Kimi wa Kanata" will premiere at TOHO Cinemas in Ikebukuro and others on Nov. 27, 2020.
<Full commentary is below>
Hayami Saori as Kuki-chan
■Joining "Kimi wa Kanata"
Kuki-chan is a cute little girl dressed up in a kimono who, in the story, plays the role of a guide for the protagonist, Mio.
The director explained to me that she's like a mentor to Mio, a grandmother in the countryside.
In the recording studio, I felt motivated in front of the mic thanks to the enthusiasm of the staff for the film.
About the performance, I was told that basically there was no NG, so there was no limit to what I could express with my voice. In order to make it even better, I went through many retakes with the director.
■About the main setting of Ikebukuro, known as the holy land of animation
I've been to Ikebukuro many times, and I think that the combination of the detailed and realistic cityscape of Ikebukuro with the fantastical events that take place in this work was so unusual that drew me in.
It is a work that will give you the opportunity to reflect on the connections between people in life, on your decisions made by yourself, and on your expression of honest thoughts to someone else. Please, enjoy the movie!
Ogura Yui as Madoka
■Joining "Kimi wa Kanata"
Before the recording, the director explained to me the worldview and the story behind the film, along with its characters. I was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the film from him and the strength of his beliefs, and I felt that his straightforward passion for his work was directly connected to the charm of the film.
During the dubbing session, I was able to work with Matsumoto Honoka, who is active as an actress.
As a voice actor and actor, we normally work in different fields, but this time we were working together while respecting each other's acting skills and talking about various things as we recorded. As a performer, it was very inspiring, being a fun and lively place full of passion and motivation.
■About the main setting of Ikebukuro, known as the holy land of animation
Ikebukuro is one of the greatest places that everyone in the city has visited at least once. In particular, anime and video game fans consider it as almost their second home.
As a chance to experience the deeper side of Ikebukuro, I think that, if fans could visit the holy land that appears in the film, it would help them to understand better the real charm of this work.
Sena Yoshinobu as Director / Scriptwriter / Original Author
■The reason behind the choice of Hayami-san and Ogura-san as the new cast members
I only had the pleasure of speaking to Hayami-san once a long time ago, and she left me with the impression that she was an "innocent person". When I was working on the character of Kuki-chan, the first thing I thought of was "an innocent existence", and that's where my memories of her came from. I thought it would be great if Hayami-san could give life to the character, so I offered her the job.
I had the opportunity to work with Ogura-san several times on set and see how his characters and acting changed.
Every time she was voicing a completely different character, from brisk heroines to gentle and mysterious characters, so I finally asked her to play the role of Madoka because I thought she could express the complex emotions and situations that she has inside, even though she seems to have no worries on the surface.
■Impressions after finishing the recordings
After the dubbing session, when I explained to them how I made this film, Hayami-san started crying in the middle of it.
I was touched by the moment, and I thought she was a truly pure person.
Also, I was always amazed at Ogura-san's ability to read and comprehend scripts. She didn't just play the character of Madoka straightly, she was able to show the subtle nuances in her performance by deeply understanding the film direction and the structure of the story.
I hope you will be able to see the pure Kiku-chan and Madoka's subtle performance at the theaters.

After recording this video, where Tsuda had finished everything by himself, he commented, "I was happy to be able to do it in a world of laughter. It was hard to do all the characters, and I was a little nervous and tried I to do something interesting. However, I had real freedom during the recording ... (laughs) It was fun.
