August 2 is Hayami Shou's birthday. Hayami Shou debuted as a voice actor in the 1980s. Since then, he has played a wide range of roles and won the Singing Award thanks to his role in "Hypnosismic Division Rap Battle" at the 13th Seiyuu Awards. From 2020 to 2021, he appeared in many TV anime and movies, including "Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai" and "Gintama THE FINAL". He has been active in various fields such as being an MC in the talk-variety show "Seiyuu Jackpot", which is on air from July 19. Here at Anime!Anime!, to celebrate Hayami Shou's birthday, we conducted a reader survey entitled "Who is your favorite character played by Hayami Shou?" We received responses from 169 people during the survey period from July 16 to July 23. The male-female ratio is about 35% for males and about 65% for females. About 45% of the age group were teens, and about 25% were in their 20s. ■ Jinguuji Jakurai from "Hypmic" is topping the list for 3 consecutive years! 1st place 1st place goes to Jakurai Jinguji from "Hypnosismic: Division Rap Battle" with an approval rating of about 25%, and he ranked in the 1st place for the third consecutive year. Readers were surprised by the role in the rapping unit, "I was surprised because I never associated Hayami-san with rap!", and "Because it is a character that reflects Hayami-san's attitude of always trying new things." Readers also commented on the character, "Usually, he is a calm and cool character, but he is curious and playful and that is attractive. The gap of his bitter side to rivals is also nice.", and "The rap that Hayami-san performs with a mature voice is Jinguuji Jakurai itself. Every time I hear a a song, my heart is overwhelmed." 2nd place 2nd place goes to Umibouzu from "Gintama" with an approval rating of about 14%, and ranked higher compared to his position in the previous year (6th place). Many fans were surprised by unexpected casting, "The strongest alien hunter in the universe, the father of Kagura and Kamuy. On the one hand, he also cares about children properly... Only Hayami-san could voice his strength and kindness.", and "It is interesting that Hayami-san, who often plays cool roles, plays the role of the slightly disappointing father. I can't stop laughing at the on-parade of the lower story that comes out from the low voice!" The reason why the character is raked so high this year is probably that "Gintama THE FINAL" was released. 3rd place 3rd place goes to Aizen Sousuke from "BLEACH" with an approval rating of about 10%, he dropped from last year's 2nd place but remains in the top-3. The performance of the double-face character is appreciated by readers, "I got to know about Hayami-san from 'Bleach'. The role of Aizen Sousuke, whose emotions you can't read, was so good that I even felt scared.", and "The gentle vibe and appearance of him with glasses, and the fear of his coldness that kept others away from him, both of which were performed with a calm voice but the acting of personality changes was great." In addition, the anime adaptation of "Bleach"'s final chapter "Thousand Year Blood Battle" has been announced. ■ Let's introduce other comments! For Ferdinand from "Ascendance of a Bookworm", "His known intimacy voicing matches this perfectionist and strict chief priest.", and "The comical interactions with the main character, Mine, after the ED are fun, and he is also in charge of narration. The switching of voice to Ferdinand is wonderful." For Chino's father from "Is the order a rabbit?", "He's so sexy cool, he even works as a bartender.", and "The astringent and wonderful voice matched Takahiro's character." About Adalbert von Farrenheit from "Legend of the Galactic Heroes", "Although he is from a poor aristocrat family and became a soldier to eat but he fell in love with the figure of a brave general who served as a palace for the withdrawal war at the expense of himself." About Max from "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross", "An impressive voice is perfect for a character who is imagen as a genius. I'm really happy that he appeared in 'Macross 7' after, and I can still hear his voice with new dubbing." In the 2021 version of the survey, the topping character proved his strength, while the rankings of the second and lower ranks changed. Due to the presence of the voice, it is also a feature that there are characters with strong power even in the work. ■ Ranking Top-10 "Who is your favorite character played by Hayami Shou? 2021 Edition" 1st place Jinguuji Jakurai "Hypnosis Mic Division Rap Battle" 2nd place Umibouzu (Kankou) "Gintama" 3rd place Aizen Sosuke "Bleach" 4th Chino's father (Kafuu Takahiro) "Is the Order a Rabbit?" 5th place Ferdinand "Ascendance of a Bookworm" 6th place Maximilian Jenius (Max) "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross" 6th place Morofushi Takaaki "Detective Conan" 8th place Ironhide "Fight!

His difference with Giyuu was pointed on but he still ranked high, "The graphic of water when he shows off his technique is beautiful, and it makes me overwhelmed by his power. I love him because he is a character that lets you feel the flexibility and strength that are the characteristics of water." 2nd place 2nd place goes to Aqua from "Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku wo!" with an approval rating of about 14%. The goddess with a goofy personality is popular, "The goddess who controls water. She shows off Kacho Fugetsu (the beauty of nature), held by company parties and her name also relates to water, so I think she is exactly a water character.", and "She is often called the Goddess of company parties or the Goddess of debt, but she is actually the Goddess of water. The power of her technique is so powerful that she ends up increasing her debts." The scene, where she is utilized as a water purifier, was also popular as this comment shows, "Is there any character who has a water-purifying skill beyond hers?". 3rd place 3rd place goes to Noel Silva from "Black Clover" with an approval rating of about 6%. Noel, who is from the royal family, is a water magician. Readers commented, "The mysterious scene of fighting like a mermaid wearing a water dress!

For Nanase Haruka from "Free!", "He can't live without water, and his first love was a waterfall! And above all, Haru-chan himself swims very beautifully and fast. I think he is a character who loves water and is loved by water." About Cure Aqua from "Yes! PreCure 5", "The first Pretty Cure of the 'Pretty Cure' series who is related to water. Her transformation line 'Pretty Cure of Intelligence' is beautiful, and she appears in the movie released this year."

His looks and remarks related to the sea and water are so often, and his habit of saying 'Pukapuka' makes him an ideal 'water' character." For Seiren Uruu "Fairy Ranmaru", the character from the fresh title of 2021, "His nickname 'Ai! Juntaku!

There are many mysteries to be solved, but please look forward to the further announcement to be made. New movie for “Digimon Adventure 02” Another animation work is the new movie depicting the story of Motomiya Daisuke in “Digimon Adventure 02”, which was broadcast in 2000. The special video and teaser visual were released this time, but only information being revealed were the names of Taguchi Tomohisa and Yamatoya Akatsuki, who were the main staff of “LAST REVOLUTION -Kizuna-“, and the “02” copy and mysterious lines. The visual includes the unknown character and a Digimon. The release date is not announced yet, so please do look forward to it. 【Comment from Producer Kinoshita Yousuke】 The main characters are those from “02”! Daisuke and others have different charms from Taichi, and because we are in such a difficult situation, I want to express that so strongly. The characters revealed at this point are unknown boy and a Digimon with mysterious lines, not Daisuke and others…I ordered the design to Watabe Kenji-san, who is one of the mothers of Digimon ideas! How does that going to have importance in the future? The project is still in the beginning step, so please look forward to the completion even though it takes some more time! © Hongou Akiyoshi, Fuji TV, Toei Animation © H F T
