July 9 is Yasuno Kiyono-san’s birthday.

Yasuno Kiyono-san debuted in the 2010s. She won the Singing Award in the 15th Seiyu Awards as a member of Walküre from “Macross Δ”. In 2021, she is playing characters in films such as “ARIA the CREPUSCOLO” and “Kakushigoto: Himegoto was Nandesuka”.

Also, a project to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her voice acting debut has started. The character song live tour “KIYONO YASUNO 10th Anniv. Billboard Live Tour 2021 -Dear my Character Songs” will be held at Osaka on July 24, Tokyo on August 1, and Yokohama on August 9.

To celebrate her birthday, we at Anime!Anime! conducted a readers’ survey asking “Who’s Your Favorite Character Voiced by Yasuno Kiyono-san!”. There were 175 votes during the survey period from June 16 to 23.
The voters were mainly male with a gender ratio of 65% male to 35% female, and the age range was on the younger side with 30% under 20 and 35% in their 20s.

■”Saekano” Katou Megumi, an ordinary high school girl tops the list!
1st Place
Katou Megumi from “Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend” topped the list with roughly 25% of the votes.

Fans sent comments such as, “The emotionlessness at the begging of the story, how she becomes more expressive and a bit evil towards from the middle to the end… Altogether, she’s so cute,” “Her calm voice soothed me…! I also love how she reacts to jokes without getting excited,” and “How she gradually expresses her emotions is so cute.”
While various unique heroines appearing in the show, she was popular for having a realistic charm, “She’s cute for being a realistically non-geeky girl.”

2nd Place
Coming in 2nd was Amamiya Elena / Cure Soleil from “Star Twinkle Pretty Cure” with roughly 22% of the votes.

“I love Erena-san, who looks supports the PreCure team just like the sun as her nickname ‘The Sun of Mihoshi Middle School’,” “She values smiles and family, and has strength within her kindness,” and “I love the way she smiles at people she’s never met before, even if they are aliens. I want to be like Erena-san,” are comments from fans that adore the cheerful and caring big sister.

3rd Place
Kaname Buccaneer from “Macross Delta” took 3rd place with just a few votes short of 2nd place.

She fascinates her fans as the leader of the Tactical Sound Unit, Walküre, and received votes like, “I was attracted by the way she brings the members together as a leader and her passion for singing!”, and “She’s a strong leader, but also shows weakness and kindness from time to time. I respect her for her hard work while being supported by the other members.”
“I love Kaname-san’s singing voice! ‘AXIA~Daisuki de Daikirai~’ in episode 10 was amazing, and I’m moved by the song in every live concert,” is a comment praising her performance.
“Macross Delta: Zettai LIVE!!!!!!” is on its way, so let’s keep an eye on its latest title.

■Here are some comments for other titles!!
For Kimura Natsu ki from “The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls”, “You can enjoy Yasuno-san’s husky and cool acting, which is quite different from her usual voice,” and “I love the powerful voice and the portrayal of the cuteness within her coolness.”
For Charmy Pappitson from “Black Clover”, “How she ends her lines with ‘ら’ (la) is so cute. I love that she’s a foodie, that she becomes a girl in love with Yuno, and that she’s the strongest when food and friends are involved!”

For Sakurai Minami from “The Irregular at Magic High School (season 2)”, “I love how her collected manner matches her voice. How she acts frightened is also cute.”
For Sumita Rasuna from “Kakushigoto”, a series that just announced its theatrical compilation, “Among the main character’s assistants, she’s the most loving one. Her personality and looks are just like Yasuno-san!”
