Girlish Number is a new TV anime series created from the collaboration between Watari Wataru, best known for My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, and QP:flapper, best known for Girl Friend Beta, and it features a cute but horrible amateur voice actress. Chitose Karasuma is a college student who steps into the voice actress’s industry with lots of dreams, hopes, and ambitions and struggles with the severe and harsh realities the industry poses to her. Sayaka Senbongi, the voice actress who played Mumei in Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, will be starring as Chitose.
If you can understand Japanese, you most likely want to check out the radio program Kabaneri Tours.
There you can learn the voice actress’s interesting new aspects. Besides Sayaka Senbongi, the anime has a lot of recently-emerged promising voice actresses. It will be interesting to see how they play their characters in the industry.
There are a lot of behind-the-scenes anime lately. Hopefully, this one will provide some real-life example of the Japanese voice acting industry and describe what kind of job voice acting is.
University student Chitose Karasuma dives into the voice acting industry full of dreams, hopes, and ambition – but what is the reality that awaits her? Young women with wildly different personalities and backgrounds find themselves friends and competitors at the same time, but may need to join together to find the fame and fortune they all crave in this entertaining look into voice acting industry featuring a number of original pop songs.
