Wow, it seems just yesterday that this tiny island police state never got any visitors, and now everyone’s starting to pick and choose. But while we’re at it, tell us, which seiyuu guest would you really really wish to see at AFA 2009?
Personally Mizuki Nana doesn’t hold much appeal for me. She’s a decent seiyuu singer, with some looks and a lot of roles, but none of which have really interested me. She seems to be the darling of many a beastman otaku, alongside the likes of Chihara Minorin and Hirano Aya. I used to be into seiyuu as well, but recently, not that much, as there aren’t really many of them with the skills. There are certainly pretty ones but to say they are crappy would be an understatement. The likes of Hanazawa Kana and Sawashiro Miyuki are beautiful to listen to, but I’m not really interested in seeing their face to face of course, since I can hear all I want to from their shows, both anime and radio. I think for high-profile guests, Hirano Aya would be great even if all her roles are shit these days. A pretty face does wonders for the otaku crowd. Maybe then we’ll have 10 people kowtowing on stage.
As such, I find it really difficult to have to select a seiyuu I really wish to see in the flesh. I think I’ll probably go for the Nakata Jouji and Fukuyama Jun, particularly the former. How in the world can people have such a manly low voice?
As for other guests, it would be nice to get one of the soon-to-be-unemployed GONZO staff over and ask them fierce questions about why their company turned from legend to shit in less than 8 years. Someone needs to get Range Murata over as well, along with some of his merchandise.
So once again, who would you want to meet at AFA 09?
