Why isn't there a bigger reso for such a divine image...
Hikasa Youko, or as I and many others like to call her, "Hiyocchi" has voiced quite a handful of noteworthy characters up till now. Thou she may sound pretty common as any other seiyuu to many viewers, Hiyocchi's talent for singing is real, blowing away everyone's eardrums when she debuted in music comedy anime "K-ON!", propelling her to stardom as a noteworthy and talented seiyuu too.
Her personality; hyper active and extremely playful. She loves to poke fun at others, which you can see for yourself in the IS Radio Show below, broadcasted on NicoNicoDouga (NND). Her carefree attitude and special ability to get under her friend's skin while constantly making a fool of herself whether on radio or camera are just a few of her strong points which I've come to love.
The above (or below) is a list of the recent characters within the 1 year period, left to right;
Shinonono Houki (Infinite Stratos)
Seraphim (Kore wa Zombie desuka?)
Akiyama Mio (K-ON!)
Kumashiro Maya (Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin)
Amakusa Shino (Seitokai Yakuindomo) ♡♡♡
Her other noteable roles;
Hattori Junko (Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou)
Katsuragi Hana (Seikon no Qwaser)
Takanashi Izumi (Working!!)
Kazane Hiyori (Sora no Otoshimono: Forte)
Here's a vid of Hikasa "Houki" and Shimoda "Lin" with guest Hanazawa "Charlotte" on the IS Radio Show where they laugh, make fun of each other and inevitably proceed to throwing stuff across the room ^^.
Its a fun and eventful show every week.
Speaking of getting together, Hikasa and KanaZawa (nick) are recently part newly formed seiyuu unit called Roukyuubu. Very much like the seiyuu unit Sphere which formed in 2009, they're making this a 5 man (or lady) show with Hidaka Rina, Iguchi Yuka and Ogura Yui accompanying them.
The young 16 year old Ogura Yui is new to the seiyuu industry but has appeared in Yumeiro Pâtissière SP Professional series as fairy Mint whom I absolutely adore in the show ≧ω≦ (you may laugh at me now)
Interestingly, I've read the book ages ago and applaud the concept of this neatly laid out plot. Fresh new ideas and concepts like these are just what we're looking for and hopefully, what drives the future of this industry further. Moshidora is a definite go in my books and starts airing on April 25 on NHK with 10 episodes.
