The streaming project to connect voice actors around the world called “World Voice Actor Summit” will be broadcast on Aug. 28, 2020, on 6:00 PM on the app called “BIGO LIVE”. The first streaming invites Hanae Natsuki, a voice actor who is famous for playing Kamado Tanjirou from “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” and several other characters, and asked about voice actor facts such as, “Are nuances of the same line different between languages?”.
“World Voice Actor Summit” assembles the voice actors and actresses from a total of 150 nations from Japan, the U.S., Europe, Korea, Southeastern Asia, etc. through the streaming service/app called “BIGO LIVE”.
While the project talks about background stories, it also talks about the charms hidden in the words of the actors, including “Is nuance of the same line different between the languages?” and “Can you express the situation and feelings although you do not understand the original line?”.
“World Voice Actor Summit” will be streamed from Aug. 28, 2020, at 6:00 PM on the app “BIGO LIVE”.
Jun. 26 is Hanae Natsuki-san's birthday.
He debuted in 2011 and won Best Rookie Actors at the 9th Seiyu Awards in 2014, Personality Award at the 11th in 2016, and Best Actor in a Leading Role at the 14th in 2019. In 2020, he is taking on the main characters in many titles, such as "Smile Down the Runway" and "Appare-Ranman!".
To celebrate his birthday, Anime!Anime! has conducted the same survey as last year asking, "Who's Your Favorite Character Voiced by Hanae Natsuki-san?" We received 333 votes during the voting period from Jun. 13 to Jun. 20.
Most of the voters were female with a gender ratio of 20% male to 80 % female, and the age range leaned toward the younger side with 60% under 19 and 20% in their 20s.
■The protagonists of "Kimetsu", "Tokyo Ghoul", and "Your Lie in April"
1st place was taken by Kamado Tanjirou from "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" with roughly 25% of the vote, keeping him at the top.
"He's an honest caring big brother, but when it comes to slaying demons, he always devotes his full power! I love how he never gives up!!" "I fell in love with his kindness and courage fighting to turn his demon sister back to a human," and "He takes good care of his family and friends, and has a kind heart to even show mercy to the demons," are comments that show how he is popular for his gentle personality.
He also fascinates fans in the radio program, "His strength, kindness, and dignity are each expressed well. Every time I watch the anime, I'm like 'Tanjirou's alive...!' It's so impressive. I also enjoy listening to him on 'Kimetsu Radio'."
Coming in 2nd was Kaneki Ken from "Tokyo Ghoul" with 15% of the vote. He kept his position from last year.
The emotional and troubled protagonist received comments such as "The protagonist who's both a human and a ghoul. His conflicted feelings swaying between human and ghoul and crying out his pain left a strong impression on me," and "His performance transitions along with Kaneki's personality, and his kindness and terror are expressed well. I was drawn in by this anime."
Fans say "I can't forget the fear I felt through the performance," pointing out how the screams in the torture scene stuck in their heads.
3rd place went to Tomoe Hiyori from "Ensemble Stars!" with roughly 7% of the vote. He rose from 8th place in last year's survey.
Tomoe Hiyori, the leader of Eve, was popular for his cheerful and social personality, and received comments such as, "Hanae-san's cheerfulness is similar to that of Hiyori-kun and he gives me energy. I also love how he sometimes shows his matureness," and "The sparkly charm of Ohii-san can only be portrayed by Hanae-san." His symbolic line "Ii Hiyori" (A good day) is also memorable.
■Here are some comments for other characters!!
For Sakishima Hikari from "Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea", "He's boyish and cool. His words can be harsh but his voice is so gentle. I think Hanae-san taking on the role of the protagonist Hikari made 'Nagi-Asu' a painful yet heart-warming story," and "I can feel the love for the title from Hanae-kun's profile location being related to 'Nagi-Asu'."
For Higekiri from the "Token Ranbu" series, "He's usually so laid-back that he even forgets his younger brother's name, but his dignified voice in battles well matches "the treasure of the Minamoto clan". I can't resist the gap!"
For Kaizuka Inazuka from "Aldnoah.Zero", "He's cool, but also has a passionate side. It's refreshing to watch him turning over the desperate battles."
For Tomaruin Satsuki, a character from the latest spring 2020 anime series, "Kakushigoto: My Dad's Secret Ambition", "He's annoying how he gets in the way of everyone, but his performance stops me from hating him," and "His voice becoming a bit deeper when he sometimes talks ill of others gives me butterflies in my stomach."
The top 2 positions didn't change from last year's survey, but 3rd place and below were completely different. Not only anime characters but also game characters made the list.

Voice actors, who bring life to characters, also take part in recitation performances and audiobooks. We believe there are many fans who like their performance different from that of an anime.

This is a report of the results for male voice actors.
■The ranking has changed from last year!

He's performed many readings brilliantly and I hope to hear more," and "With Ishida-san's recitation skills, the story is never monotonous and the scenes of the story become a clear image in my mind, making me feel as if I'm watching a play," are comments that show how highly his skills are praised.
There were also comments from fans who have been to his recitation performance, "In the recitation of 'Little Red Riding Hood', he played the roles of both genders and a wide range of age from an old lady to a little girl. He has such a wide variety of voices."

Fans fascinated by his performance commented, "Yusa-san has a convincing, unique, beautiful voice, but also his great performance is fascinating. His voice draws you into the story and makes you feel as if the character is there," and "His performance is so amazing. I can imagine the scenes with detail just from his voice. How he uses his breath shakes my heart!" Some fans feel soothed by his voice.

He received comments, such as, "It's not just that the voice is easy to hear word for word, but it's also how he reads the lines making it sound even more profound. Hearing his live recitation performance gave me goosebumps, and it made me realize that voice actors are no doubt actors."
Since he often reads the monologues in anime, some fans used specific characters as an example such as, "I like how he talks as Araragi-kun in the <Monogatari> series", or "I'd love to hear his recitation in the gentle voice from 'Natsume's Book of Friends'."
For the male voice actors, the top 5 were all taken by veteran voice actors with over 20 years of experience. Some of them have performed in recitations or have released a CD of them reading aloud, making their fans even more found of them.

Jun. 19 is "Reading Aloud Day".
Jun. 19 can be pronunced as "Roudoku" which mean reading aloud, and this day was set by NPO Japan Roudoku Bunka Association in 2002. This commemoration day was created so that art culture of reading aloud is spread, and various events including volunteer reading aloud, and reading aloud competition are held in Mid Jun.
Voice actors, who give birth to the characters, have also read aloud during the recital and audio book as well. We believe that there are quite some fans who like reading aloud as it carry a different allure than the anime.
In Anime! Anime!, we conducted an annual survey asking readers: “Which voice actor do you want to hear their 'reading aloud'”. We have received a total of 810 responses during the survey period of Jun. 7 until Jun. 14.
The male to female ratio was approximately 15% for male and approximately 85% for females, making females the majority. In terms of age distribution, the majority were youngsters below the age of 19 comprising approximately 35%, and approximately 25% were people in their 20's.
Let's introduce the result for the female voice actor category.
■From new to veteran, a wide range of voice actors have received votes.

She was supported due to her voicing various characters such as "It amazing how she can voice young girl and also fascinating female!", and "I was amazed at her diverse voice acting as I notice there is a lot of 'character that is voiced by Sawashiro-san' while watching the credit."
We had received a lot of comments such as "She is good at expressing, I can even imagine the detailed story even if there is no video". There was also readers who mentioned about the read aloud episode in the anime, "The reading scene to the children in "Library Wars" had leave a deep impression in me."

There were a lot of comment that agree that her recital can make relax a person, such as "Her calm and clear voice make me feel comfortable and it make me want to hear more of it", and "I want to healed by the gentle Goddess like voice of Hayami-san."
There was fans who got charmed by her other than her characters, "She has done the narration for the variety program but her clear voice can be recognized immediately without emphasizing on it. It make me want to hear it unconsciously."
The 3rd place goes to Hanazawa Kana with a support rating of approximately 5%. She had ranked up from 4th place last year.
A lot of comments mentioning they want to be healed by her soft voice, such as "Her cute, dignified voice make me want to hear her recital properly", "It because I can hear the voice gentle to the ear peacefully", and "Her angelic voice will make me happy."
The voice actor who took the top place in the survey are all voice actor that has a kind voice. Due to the spread of the novel coronavirus, Yuuki Aoi has started a children book's read aloud project "#Seiyu Roudokukai" for the parent and children that are staying at home.
