Hello! I am Kitahata, the editor-in-chief at MANGA.TOKYO. I live in Japan and turn press releases from Japanese companies into articles that are easy for those outside of Japan to understand. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me!
*Please note that we are no longer accepting submissions. Thank you very much for your response!
MANGA.TOKYO wants you, our awesome otaku readers, to help us put together the questions for our next interview! This time, we will interview the extremely popular voice actress and singer, Minori Chihara!
Her popularity exploded when she voiced the character Yuki Nagato from the anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. She is also famous as a singer, having performed the opening songs for the TV anime Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere (Kyoukaisen-jou no Horizon) and Beyond the Boundary (Kyokai no Kanata).
This year, she will attend the Los Angeles’ Anisong World Matsuri at Anime Expo 2017. It seems like it will be a happy year for international fans.
We are collecting any music-related questions you may have for Minori Chihara! MANGA.TOKYO will ask on your behalf those questions that you are not usually able to ask a Japanese voice actress,
※Please leave your questions as a comment on this post.
※As we will be translating the questions into Japanese, there will be some cases of editing.
