I haven’t seen many seiyuu perform in action i.e. see them doing the actual recording. I always find it amazing how these people can alter their voices to suit the character. To me, it seems harder to act through the voice alone than being a full actor where you have your entire body to work with.

Anyway, I found this clip of Rie Kugimiya and I found it PRETTY DAMN impressive! I’ve seen her before in some interviews and her voice is SHOCKing!?!?! I don’t know how she can talk like that normally! It’s so squeaky high!?! Argh! BUT, see her here and your perception will change! It’s no wonder she got the best lead actress in this year’s Seiyuu Awards!!

Hehe Good huh?! Must say, I don’t really like her natural talking voice. Eeek…
