March 10 is Sugar Day.
It was established because of the word play of Sa (3) and Tou (10) (Satou means Sugar in Japanese).
Although sugar is very sweet, anime characters with “sweet voices” that melt your heart are very popular in anime. Everyone decides which voice they consider to be “sweet”. Who are the voice actresses with the “sweetest voice” according to anime fans?
Here at Anime!Anime!, we conducted a reader survey for the first time in two years, entitled “Who comes to mind when you think of voice actresses with a “sweet voice”?” We received responses from 215 people during the survey period from February 19 to February 26.
The male-female ratio is about 20% for males and about 80% for females. About 40% of the age group were teens, and about 40% were in their 20s.
